When a 65 yr. old signs up for MediCare with an HMO, EACH month thereafter the HMO receives $1,000 per month for that person, from the government. Most seniors think that their $96 MediCare premium is paying for everything and that the $96 should cover everyting.
Obama has been the Perfect President for the Perfect Storm Era.
Regarding Biden: Several years ago a Republican friend of mine attended one of her national presswomen's conventions where Biden was the speaker. She was astounded at his breadth of knowledge and that he answered ALL questions thoroughly and sensibly. You Republicans have been sold a bill of goods for a very long time. Denigration is the GOP MO and you have fallen for it hook, line and sinker. Here we are. The U.S. Economy = destroyed, the U.S. Society = a shambles,
U.S. Business = self inflicted holes in both feet.
I'm surprised that a Long Islander is such a mental lightweight, oblivious to the past 60 years of our history.
Obama's miracle is that 90% of the post-GOP era
working folks are still working, in spite of ingratitude, treachery and misery from the right. And above all, their Lazy Fairy Economics.
There is just no turning this Republican fiasco
of the worldwide economic collapse around in the short term. If the median wage is areound $40,000, then family homes should cost $160,000.
Where have you seen that?
Even when houses were rising $100,000 per year
for two and three years, the GOP wunderkinds did
not have the guts to admit that things were getting out of control and do something about it. Now they want back in. OMG.
Value Partners, Limited, VPGLF.PK, is a good
play on China and the Pacific Basin area.
It is heavily owned by Royce Global funds and
was mentioned as being of good value, several weeks ago, by one of their fund managers.
It trades in Hong Kong and on the pink sheets.
It is now selling 50% off its market high.
Royce Global Funds seem to have relatively large holdings in Value Partners, Ltd., (VPGLF.PK). It is an investment holding company in Hong Kong which focuses mainly
on China and the Pacific Basin Areas.
One of Royce's fund managers, on television several weeks ago, was indicating what a good value the company is. It is now over 50% off its yearly high.
Several weeks ago, one of the global value managers from Royce funds was on T.V. and highly spoke of Value Partners Limited, VPGLF.PK. It is an investment holding company
in Hong Kong and focuses mainly on China and
the Asia Pacific Region. It sells for around .53-.56 U.S. It might be an excellent
long term stock for patient investors.
Republicans have destroyed most of organized labor anyway. Why do you think we have lost so much of the potential middle class?
Several weeks ago one of the Royce Global Value Funds managers was highly recommending
Value Partners Group, Ltd., VPLGF.PK.
It is a Hong Kong investment holding company
which manages assets and focuses on the China and Asia Pacific areas.
I see that the stock is held in most of Royce's Global Funds. It is now selling for
.56 U.S. and is down about 50% from its yearly high. Its potential seems quite high for patient investors. (And heaven knows how patient we MNHVF investors are!)
Have you all heard about "Chinese Oil Pulling a Method of restoring health?" It is
quite intriguing. I don't know if it could
involve fish oil, but it seems to be helping
restore health to aging gums, and other parts. I think most use Sunflower, Sesame or Flaxseed oils.
It was Reagan who stopped sending the States money, under the guise of "a return to States rights." People who vote Republican NEVER know
who or what is behind the Republican Party.
Our $4 trillion dollar wars have dug us into the deepest hole we have ever experienced.
Tea Party types want to return these GOP folk
to office. The GOP certainly chose good groups to manipulate.
You are correct. There are so many new investors to this gold game who don't know anything of spike and dump reality. As long as folks have kept spiking this, there has been buying. Today, margin allowances were lowered. The wise guys are getting cautious with their lend-lease monies. I believe I saw last week that Soros has sold his entire holding of gold.
Control for catastrophic risk.
