Explaining a concept does not equal insanity. It was done with the best of intentions and you want to see real crazy look at what is happening in this country .
My good friends dsc and redthecat: First, the amount the Indians received is documented to be far more 2- The story itself is very suspect as it is very loosely based on one merchant's account with no supporting evidence 3-Indians had a different concept of land ownership. Not better, just different(remember liberals tell us all the time we are not to judge other people, cultures etc that are different than our own) 4-Several historians believe it is actually the other way around: the Indians cheated the white settlers. 5- Related to this, the old story of the Puritans stealing Indian lands is outright false. My question to you: how many public schools do you know that are teaching this correct and balanced version of not just this event, but many others? For libs it is always about politics and making bigger government with more power and control as we watch our freedoms being taken away a piece at a time.
redthecat: This is one of the many persistent myths put out in our liberal run schools with little foundation in fact.
mytek: It won't happen. Liberals are NEVER satisfied and and nearly always angry. There is no way shoving obamacare down our throats and making homosexual/lesbian marriages(ever notice its never called in these terms which is what it is) legal in all 50 states is the end. This is only the beginning
agnes: I know. Like Sgt. Friday used to say on "Dragnet" "just the facts" and they are 1-The Confederate Flag was the symbol of the RE Lee's army 2-It only became an "offensive" symbol after the Civil War esp in relation to the Klan which was founded and run by democrats 3- Had these same dems not undermined republican efforts to stop the Klan and other republican efforts for justice, our history would have been very different
4-Most southerners did not own slaves and could not afford to even if they wanted them. Slavery also existed in the north and only died out for political and monetary reasons, not moral ones 5-It is also a fact no liberal will ever dare tell you that thousands of blacks hunted, purchased and captured other blacks as did other minorities. Slavery has been in existence for thousands of years all over the world-this is NOT to justify it, only explain it.
6-This flag is part of our history and like it or not, it should remind us of the time when we fought the bloodiest war in our history over slavery and other issues. There was good and bad on both sides and when we forget our history and worse, when it gets lied about and twisted, I think we lose a part of ourselves.
You might also recall when Obama ran for pres.it was going to be a time of getting along with our enemies and a time of healing of racism, class divisions etc I watched in amazement at the eulogy he delivered and it sounded more like he was still campaigning than the sad sober event it really was. In fact, this is how Obama has cleverly escaped being held accountable for his horrible actions or lack of them. The key: do not listen to what he says, watch what he does(or doesn't do) and this also applies to most republicans afraid to stop him which is what they were elected to do.
dsc: They are advocating this and more. As for slavery, the issue is far more complex than you have been led to believe. and its a lack of space that limits me from expanding on this further., I will say it is the democrat party that fought to get and keep slavery,fought to keep Jim Crow laws, fought against civil rights and has all but destroyed the black family. If the harm this party has done to blacks, other minorities and the country as a whole was clearly understood, we would not be where we are now.
We have moved from stupidity to pure insanity. All bets are off now: we can now abolish the Confederate flag(which had nothing to do with the horror in SC),Gone with the Wind(which was made in the 1930s and reflected attitudes of the day), The Jefferson Memorial(without whom there would be no America)and yes even the American flag(think I am kidding? Listen to Louis Farrahken and others)
We continue to elect these people and continue to watch republicans talk and do nothing(with some notable exceptions). This is what happens when our history, culture and values are revised and lied about and taught by liberals who run our schools and colleges. Get prepared: Can I now marry a duck? After all its about love and what makes you happy All this from an ego driven power mad ruler and 6 men in black robes. Let us all try to keep our head above water, but not too far above as some terrorist might want to chop it off.
$9 is a psychological number and nice to look at, but the real number to focus on is $9.07(previous 52 week high with overhead resistance which is why it is having some trouble with it). It must take this out on this leg up and stay above it and then we are in a new game.
Even though earnings caused red to happen the other day, it did firm up later in day which set stage for bounce up. I still don't think a buyout is right around the corner, but that's ok because it shows the stock is moving on its own accord. Also agree. in the event buyout is announced or some other major event and it will catch fire. GLTA
Yes and just looking only at the numbers: Is it more likely an $8 stock will double in the next few years or a $100 one? RAD has gone from $1.01 to $8.80 (as of this post) in 5 years. At this current rate it would be about $65 pps 5 years from now. Anyone think CVS will be around $900 at the same time?
super: Garrigan is right and its not personal. You are entitled to your opinion as is everyone else. Seriously, take it easy and watch your blood pressure. From where I am sitting, I just find it makes more sense to ground my views with reality and experience.
This is a flawed analysis super and here is why: 1-I am also now a senior and know many other seniors who continue to go to Rite Aid-higher price or not. Also many of these "higher prices" are covered costs.
2-They do so for different reason which include convenience, well kept stores and well lit stores and parking and even security reasons(unless you have not heard of the fights in Walmart and crime that takes place in their giant parking lots which are also a problem for the huge number of seniors with mobility issues.
3--Once in the store, it is also a well known fact shoppers buy others things known as "impulse shopping".
4-Right or not, Walmart continues to have a negative public image-Rite Aid does not. I also believe Walmart is stretched too thin trying to be all things to all people where as Rite Aid is known as "the drugstore".
5-With 10,000 boomers per day(your reasoning) even if Rite Aid gets a few thousand of them, that works
6-The fundamentals of this stock have reversed for the better. No, its not perfect, but no company is.
7-Still not convinced? go back and look at the pps 5 years ago when it was $1.01 and today at $8.72. I rest my case.
I know these guys are annoying, but don't let them under your skin: that is what they play on. They want attention-why give it to them? More important is sticking to your guns and as soon as it resumes upward trend, and it will, they will crawl back underneath the rocks again. I have never changed my outlook on this stock and still haven't and have followed it for a long time. GLTA
Good take. Add on to that no immediate rise in interest rates, a still stable market(remember the old saying-when interest rates rise stocks die, when they are low stocks grow) and I also read the earnings-they don't look half bad from where I am sitting. Add on still good fundamentals and you have a winning ticket. Still a great buy and hold
