My sympathies to you. Anyone who hangs around for two years to say "I told you so," is a real loser
Options are part of their salary. Gates at MSFT sold over $500M in a year. Besides they know the board will approve more options for them. So what's your point?
They rarely fail with their investment choices.
I like XOMA but I have to credit you with the dumbest post of the day
They changed their position and said they may have been to bearish.
After all of this time I finally understand why you don't like him. You worked for him at one time. And with that I can understand your feelings towards him. I think several of us asked before but you never replied.
All you Bush haters claim the same without proof. Look at who doubled the debt when he claimed he would cut it in half. We could go on forever. If Clinton hadn't lied about Jerry Brown, Brown would have been Pres and the housing market wouldn't have fallen apart because of him and barney Frank. Play your Dem versus Rep and see what the dems really did and not with just a bag of fancy words that they sucker the ignorant. We'll look at the facts.
Independent is another term for Democrat the same as agnostic is for atheist. Bush increased the deficit after running a surplus because his predecessor did nothing to go after bin laden. Had Clinton done more there wouldn't have been 9-11. So after 9-11 he ran the deficit paying the families of the victims so they wouldn't sue and shut down the airlines. As for WMD in Iraq, Bill Clinton was on TV saying the same thing about nuclear weapons in Iraq. Ironically the liberals said nothing about his claims. Yet Hillary called Bush a liar as opposed to her husband probably because he'd been called a liar all of his life. Who knows they may have shipped them to Syria. When the leaders of Jordan and Egypt claim Iraq had nuclear weapons you have to wonder. As for his tax cuts he took the lowest earners from 15% to 10% and then Obama reversed them increasing tax on the lowest earners by 50%. Yet he only increased the highest earners by 13% or close to it, back to where they were before the Bush cuts. But you tell a Democrat about the tax cuts and they believe what they're told and not look for the facts. I just gave you the facts. Obama increased taxes to the lowest earners by 50%. That's incredible for a man and party that claims they are for the poor and middle class. It's like they say: If you want to live like a Democrat vote Republican and vice versa. In the long run the world will thank Bush for what he did in Iraq. The surrounding countries have already revolted against their Governments. Freedom is contagious. Even the youth in Iran don't agree with their Government. Remember how Bush pushed back the invasion date into Iraq three times hoping Hussein would agree to let the UN into his country. He refused and so we went in and destroyed a brutal dictator who killed hundreds of thousands of his own people with chemical warfare which are WMD. When you choose to ignore history, history repeats itself. Do you really want another Stalin or Hitler?
People lived a better life before taxes and this country wasn't in debt. Go figure that. But then the liberals love to tax everything. They haven't figured there are two ways to balance a budget. Increase revenues through taxation which is their way, mostly because they haven't been out of the public sector, or reduce costs which is the Republican way because they have been in the public sector and they put people in positions who have been in the private sector and understand the business world. Look at the difference between the Obama Administration and the Bush Administration. Obama is clueless across the board as his most of the people he's surrounded himself with.
