ok, i'll accept that and i'll also apologize for MY attitude; but, you must admit that you were the one that provoked it.
if you need to be an "equal opportunity" agitator, carry on if you must.
(breaking silence with this one and "pearl" knows why)
"New ID's. It could be that some old fools (some just too senile) aren't smart enough to but continue on with their foolishness, those who think they are always right?"
no "pearl"; it's not a matter either of being smart enough, senile or the need to be always right.
what it boils down to (for me, at least) is having the courage of my convictions WITHOUT the need to hide behind various i/d's.
that's quite unlike you, who just a few days ago posted msgs under a name different than "pearl" and even went back and your name changed as the author of those msgs. (and even did it on another board)
in your case, your reason is simply because you're a COWARD that REALLY needs multiple i/d's to hide behind.
[video] Options Action: Bullish bet on Yahooat CNBC(Tue 5:45PM EST)
as said by the commentator
"one thing i want to point out about the price appreciation. all of this is based on optimism about the things to come. largely, that's alley baba. there is one catalyst which is why they were looking at the weeklies, rather than something longer dated. we have joe si, going to speak at that conference at 8:00 a.m. pacific time. that's may be what people are looking for. to see if the executive vice chairman is going to say the favorable things about yahoo! that yahoo! had to say about them today."
so where's this conference he was talking about?
". My low 2104 target is $45 with a high target of $50, without an announcement"
first, i don't think either of us will be around in 2104. (: D)
second, rephrase that comment about the low being $45 . (we haven't gotten there yet)
put it another way:
how much respect would you have for someone to who went to a store ONLY for the reason they knew that the LEGAL religous beliefs of the owner did not concur with their LEGAL religous beliefs and they wouldn't get served by the owner?
how would those people feel if the positions were reversed?
that's the second time yahoo has cut my msg short. here's the 3rd and last try:
"there you go...... it's not science, it ideology...
"OK, so in your opinion what IS "the biggest cause"
too few trees and too many ideological hypocrites like you.
"anyone can see you and your neocon scrum admire Putin and his strong man regime change style and oppressive society."
you need either a visit to your optomologist or a less clouded crystal ball.
thumbs down on that one.
i'm a republican and i don't contest global warming. what i contest is the argument on what is the definite cause of global warming. (disclosure: i don't believe human activity is the biggest cause)
there is no DEFINITE cause but a lot of definite opinions; none of which can or will (in my opinion) ever be proven.
how about supplying me with some links to republican opinions denying that global warming isn't occuring.
(forget all the jokes about the winter storms we're now experiencing.
The uninsured continue to view the law unfavorably
Last month’s tracking poll found a negative shift in opinion of the ACA among those who are currently uninsured, and that trend continues in February, with 56 percent of the uninsured having an unfavorable opinion of the law and 22 percent a favorable one. As more Americans gain coverage under the law, we can expect the group who remain uninsured to change over time, and some changes in opinion may be attributable to changes in who remains uninsured, rather than a shift in opinion among individuals.
Lack of awareness continues among the uninsured
Among those who report being uninsured in February, confusion and lack of awareness continue. Half (50 percent) say they don’t have enough information to understand how the law will impact their own families. Nearly two-thirds say they know only a little (37 percent) or nothing at all (26 percent) about the ACA’s health care marketplaces, and just a quarter (24 percent) are aware that the deadline to sign up for coverage and avoid paying a penalty is at the end of March.
Forty-four percent of the uninsured say they have tried to seek out more information about the ACA over the past few months, and 15 percent say they have been personally contacted by someone about the law through a phone call, email, text message, or door-to-door visit. Similar to last month, 39 percent of the uninsured say they have tried to get insurance for themselves in the past 6 months, and half (49 percent) say they plan to get coverage this year.
Hospital prices and health care fraud top the public’s reasons for rising costs
Last month’s Kaiser Health Tracking Poll found that half of Americans believe national health care costs have been rising faster than usual over the past few years, despite a recent CMS report to the contrary.
This month’s poll finds that on a more personal level, a majority of the public (55 percent) says their own family’s health care costs have been going up over the past few years, while 37 percent say they have been staying about the same and just 3 percent say they’ve been going down.
When asked about the reasons behind rising health care costs, the public finds plenty of sources to blame. At the top of the list are high hospital charges (73 percent say this is a “major reason” for rising costs), followed by fraud and waste in the health care system (68 percent). About six in ten see other major reasons including rising costs in general (63 percent), drug and insurance companies making too much money (62 percent and 60 percent, respectively), and expensive advances in medical technology (58 percent). Other factors are seen as major reasons for rising costs by about half the public, including the aging of the population (50 percent), the cost of defending against medical malpractice lawsuits (48 percent), people getting more tests and services than they really need (48 percent), and high charges by doctors (46 percent).
Similarly, about half the public (48 percent) believes the ACA is a major contributor to rising health care costs. Not surprisingly, there are partisan differences in views on this question. Two-thirds (67 percent) of Republicans and about half (52 percent) of independents say the law is a major factor in rising costs, while just about a quarter (26 percent) of Democrats agree.
he's a PHONY (a word he started using, not me).
and he sure seems to be running away from my challenge for him to post one (JUST ONE) msg where i ever mentioned doctor exchanges.
all i did was start this thread with some excerpts from the clinton notes just released.
in those notes a white house aide stated :
""I know that it's just what people want to hear. But can we get away with it?" he added. "I am very worried about getting skewered for over-promising here on something we know full well we won't deliver."
i then compared that to what obama had said. obama "over-promised" and now he's getting "skewered" because he LIED!!!!!!
that white house aide knew what he was talking about.
