  • Much smaller man being the aggressor. Pacman could not develop angles because Mayweather was on his bicycle the entire fight.

    Plus there was all holding, neck bars and rabbit punches. Mayweather is a great fighter but he is no champion.

    Plus it wasn't just the judges who were bought. It was the announcers too. Mayweather made sure he had his announcers. It was clearly a Mayweather production. Which was a shame. Made tonnes of money but again damaged the sport.

    Yea, the much larger man with the far greater reach perhaps connected more times. Running away and taking potshots as Manny came in. Back in the day you got more points for being the clear aggressor.

    Manny made it worth $100. Vasyl Lomachenko is a wonder technician. I definitely want to see more.

    How is it possible? The Progressives have manipulated poor black people against their own interests.
    This social justice secular pagan religion of the Progressive incite them to anger then exploit them as political cannon fodder.

    The public schools have become dysfunctional as all this emotionalism is used to cater to the lowest common denominator. Rather than attending to the real dreamers who would over come the odds and the Progressive system. Keeping the real virtuous and therefore natural community leaders powerless.

    The decline and deepening systemic problems stem from collectivism. The nihilism and attending political corruption. Keeping poor black people from productive problem solving. So they do not see the bad fruit of collectivism is the pathogen. Not white people and nearly all police officers.

    Douglas and Booker T were sophisticated men. They understood a political party would exploit poor black people. The key was sound faith and economic enterprise. It still is.

    Republicans are guilty as a party, of nothing more than neglect of these poor communities. Some have manned up like Paul Ryan and put in the time to understand. But he can only assist natural community leaders.

    The first step to finally solving this national disgrace is school choice. Empower the parents who never despair and always persevere. For the communities it is the children who do not go on to college which are key. Those that will start a business and/or trade in the community.

    But for this to thrive, it will be necessary to build relationships with the police. Winner take all game and especially the political fired game, must come to an end.

    It has been 50 years. Real Democrats understand they made critical errors with policy. Progressives just want to continue to keep poor black people and feed them crumbs. Then when the frustration boils over the reason is the Republicans kept crumbs.

    These are Americans. They have talents. We all need as a people.

    The numbers back her up. An Education Department-funded study at the University of Arkansas recently found that graduation rates rose 21 percentage points—to 91%, from 70%—for students awarded the scholarship vouchers through a lottery, compared with a control group of those who applied for but didn’t get the scholarships. For all D.C. public schools, the high-school graduation rate is closer to an abysmal 56%.

    “If you’ve got a program that’s clearly working and helping these kids, why end it?” asks Pamela Battle, whose son Carlos received a voucher and was able to attend the elite Georgetown Day School. He’s now at Northeastern University in Boston. She says Carlos “almost surely wouldn’t have gone to college” without the voucher. “We send all this money overseas for foreign aid,” she adds, “why not save the kids here at home first?”

    Mr. Obama won’t even meet with these parents. A few years ago the voucher supporters held a rally with 3,000 minority and disadvantaged families in front of the Capitol to protest President Obama’s proposed elimination of the program for all new students. Republicans in Congress, including House Speaker John Boehner, one of the program’s strongest supporters, stood in solidarity with the families, while Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic colleagues were nowhere to be seen."

    Progressive collectivist 'social justice' draws the life force out of it's victims. So Progressive will not allow a highly successful voucher program. Like Clinton would even notice $20 million.

    I am heart hurt for Baltimore. The economic damage from the riots will likely last at least two generations. It is also troubling the vigilante nature rather than the truth.

    If only we did have mature ordered protests for school choice like Majestic Civil Rights. But the NAACP and other collectivist power structures are having none of it.

    So it falls to the church. Pray for real leadership!

    Atrabilious Willie,

    Whether it is the IRS self admitting attacking ordinary Americans or the EPA falsifying well pollution result, this Leviathan government requires a check at all levels.

    Unlike Progressives the Tea Party members mean what they say and say what they do. A matter of personal virtue and honor.

    Once again Progressives have exploited poor black people as well. Engineering a zero sum game. Which only the political class will benefit. An issue of Progressive collectivist and material nihilism. Human nature doesn't have a color coding.

    The estimates of rising inventory and long-term, sluggish demand from industrials will put pressure on natural gas prices.

  • pril 30 (Reuters) - U.S. natural gas pipeline company Williams Cos Inc said on Thursday a couple of gas producers in the Marcellus shale in the U.S. Northeast will curtail production due to low prices.

    "We're seeing decisions to shut in production because of extremely low prices in some of the constrained areas in the far northeast part of the Marcellus," Williams Chief Executive Officer Alan Armstrong said during an analyst call following the release of the company's earnings.

    The Marcellus, centered under Pennsylvania and West Virginia, is the nation's biggest and fastest growing shale gas play, producing about 20 percent of the nation's gas output.

    "This is going to dampen some of the expected growth from our Northeast volumes," Armstrong said.

    Last week, Cabot Oil & Gas Corp, one of the biggest producers in the Marcellus, said it would curtail production during the second quarter due to low gas prices.

    Prices at the Dominion South Hub in southwest Pennsylvania, one of the primary Marcellus hubs, fell to $2.05 per million British thermal units during the first three months of 2015 from $4.95 during the same time in 2014 and a five-year average of $4.14."

    Very low cost drilling area. If America could just generate normal economics growth, the ngas model would be much different.

    The daily posing gdp.

    How do the significant cost improvements impact DCF?

    LINE sells in the futures market. So oil is now $65.

    Ethane and propane prices are very low. Might this change?

  • From Time magazine, June 24, 1974:

    As they review the bizarre and unpredictable weather pattern of the past several years, a growing number of scientists are beginning to suspect that many seemingly contradictory meteorological fluctuations are actually part of a global climatic upheaval. However widely the weather varies from place to place and time to time, when meteorologists take an average of temperatures around the globe they find that the atmosphere has been growing gradually cooler for the past three decades. The trend shows no indication of reversing. Climatological Cassandras are becoming increasingly apprehensive, for the weather aberrations they are studying may be the harbinger of another ice age.

    Telltale signs are everywhere—from the unexpected persistence and thickness of pack ice in the waters around Iceland to the southward migration of a warmth-loving creature like the armadillo from the Midwest. Since the 1940s the mean global temperature has dropped about 2.7° F. Although that figure is at best an estimate, it is supported by other convincing data.

    Yes gdp this is why our President is the leader. Rather than exploit us, he/she explains by persuasion to fashion mature policy.

    Fact is American are enjoying cheaper gasoline because of American free enterprise. If Obama explained SA's hostile oil mercantilism towards our industry/people, the good and generous American people would happily pay a little more in the short term.

    Make no mistake, SA is managing long term to maximize prices. Obama is supporting their effort with yet more mindless base load solar panels and windmills. Neither of which has a connection to oil and surface transportation. Worse still cleaner natural gas is selling for under $3mcf.

    Now we have Hillary claiming the problem is one of failed ethnics in leadership. The Clinton level of shamelessness is indeed epic.

    This Clinton wave is not a nasty Bill doing pragmatic policy for his own glory and personal 'honor'. Hillary is so self damaged she will have to go hard left for the false honor of Progressives for political base. As we see, that philosophy simply does not work.

  • norrishappy norrishappy Apr 30, 2015 9:03 AM Flag

    Why yes. Unfortunately the Progressives of our black ethnicity have done the greatest damage to our inner cities.

    They were all over the news saying it is insured. The government will make business come back. It is only property.

    I did post so exploratory academic research which demonstrated the diversity, enterprise and vitality of Bronzeville, Chicago. A powerful service economy from hair care to equestrian riding in the thousands.

    Booker T Washington was very proud of Bronzeville. That some citizens had achieved prosperity and this was reflected in fine houses in fine neighborhoods. But. Booker was also careful to put this economic success with in the Judeo-Christian ethnic. The enterprise is to be respected rather than the stuff.

    Perhaps if we had not lost the King brothers, Majestic Civil Rights could have maintained individual virtue. But truth is personal virtue was systemically undermined by political crumbs. Big government 'redevelopment' programs were pits of inept corruption. It is the nature of Progressive collectivism.

    Small business creation has been the job engine. The difference between America thriving and the dramatic systemic decline of old Europe. Now for the first time Obama has 'achieved' a net decline in small business formation. Forces which decimated our inner cities now as national agenda.

    PhD Sowell has done the work. High academic achievement has created a pretty seamless integration for strivers. But this process removes them from the community.

    It is a shame we can not bring Booker back today. He would not be hateful towards immigrants opening businesses in the community. But he would admonish the community that a citizen had not shown the enterprise to move first.

    In a community some where in America, the clergy is going to read up on local economics. Then they will support political leaders who fully embrace Booker's wisdom. A mature understanding of the human condition.

    The real question is what are they doing on an investment board.

    137 billion gallons of gasoline annually. Over $1 savings or $137billion of disposable income into the economy. Nothing. Never happened before.

  • "The Fed’s policy meeting concluded a few hours after the Commerce Department reported that gross domestic product, the broadest measure of economic output, grew at a 0.2% annual rate in the first quarter. That followed advances of 2.2% in the fourth quarter and 5% in the third."

    With due respect to the Great Gloulsbee's education, borrowing and printing a bunch of money with no vision is not economics. What a mess the Progressive have forged.

    Even of he Progressives with good tans as well. It has been over 50 years. The challenges for inner city poor people have only increased. Failed and corrupt political collectivism. Political collectivism fails on human nature and is not modified by pigment.

    Blaming police for corruption and political failure is just desperately doubling down on failure. So when do mature people listen to the tantrum voices of 'youth'? Especially as they destroy the economic base of the community?

    So what it is insured? What level of complete willful ignorance is this? Business takes the insurance and re-locates. We have seen this over and over. It is in no small degree why 'systemic' problems are more intractable now. Every person who said this or a derivative simply does not have the character to be a leader.

    There are fine Americans of great accomplishment and fine character ready to serve. They speak truth to political deception and delusions. Sadly, it is a systemic failure of individual virtue so there are no magic wands.

    No 'leader' 'understands' self destructive behavior. Especially when it takes the innocent down with it.

    Booker T and Fredrick Douglas have been correct the whole time. The fruit which will not cling to the tree and disrupts enterprise must be allowed to fall.

    Rather than arresting all the children, I would put them in Honorable West's care for the summer. Let them see what a real mature American man believes and therefore with what purpose he acts.

    Sacrificing his career for his men. LEADER!

    The analysts were not over excited. But given the excellent cost management, I agree this was a good report.
    Certainly seems LINE will be stable as ngl export begins. At some point the market is either going to utilize those American ngls or it will be exported.

    So when does decline finally over take production. Oil and natural gas.

    Of course Obama's retirement is in the window.

    No, the bond holder had senior position over equity and the unfunded pension liabilities.

    Which is exactly why the bond holder did not accept Obama offer you can not refuse. Not believing Obama could act with such dictatorial lawlessness. So Obama did abuse the power of our government to punish them extra.

    GM is not a bank. It does not have systemic financial connections. It simply should have gone through an organized BK process. New ownership and management. Obama did not save GM. He illegally paid off the union.

    GM should have been allowed to go bankrupt in a pre-package deal. This does not mean the company goes way. It does mean the union would have taken a hit like everyone else and new ownership.

    Likely one that would not have kowtowed to the Progressive government on higher blends of defective corn ethanol. Plus the Volt no one wants........

    All Obama did achieve was lawlessness to steal from bond holders to give to the union. Then tell industrious Americans to busy to play close attention he 'saved GM'. A lie.

    Please do not forget the completely false attacks on Toyota for sudden acceleration.

    Toyota have the hydrogen fuel cell. GM has the Volt.

    Back in the 80s Americans did make the Japanese assemble here. But to this day those Americans do not want the union any where near their jobs.

    Heck the AUW can't even get in a plant when management is doing everything but signing workers up.

    Reform to save the union is necessary. Progressive government may have saved the pension but killed what remains of the union.

    The bond holders were secured by contract law. Obama lawlessly took their money. Theft plain and simple.

    Lawless may seem cute and sophisticated to a primitive. But it is also what is missing from the economists models projecting 3%+ economic growth.

    Now now gdp,

    Bush is proven an able centrist governor.

    Ma Barker Clinton is astoundingly corrupt, dishonest and inept.

    I would not wish nor like another Bush. Mainly because a father son is more than enough.

    But a Bush term is in no way comparable to the Clinton's third world Banana Republic show. With wild attending corruption.
