    Wake up you're having another one of those "white people are no longer the majority" nightmares. Let's talk about that fascist Trump instead. This next GOP debate is going to be a doozy! I better set my DVR before I forget.

    "Trump is a fascist. And that's not a term I use loosely or often. But he's earned it," tweeted Max Boot, a conservative fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations who is advising Marco Rubio.

    "Forced federal registration of US citizens, based on religious identity, is fascism. Period. Nothing else to call it," Jeb Bush national security adviser John Noonan wrote on Twitter."

    Conservative Iowa radio host Steve Deace, who has endorsed Ted Cruz, also used the "F" word last week: "If Obama proposed the same religion registry as Trump every conservative in the country would call it what it is -- creeping fascism." WOW!

    Even one GOP presidential hopeful -- albeit a little-known candidate barely registering in the polls -- has used this language. In an interview with Newsmax TV on Friday, former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore said Trump's immigration policies, including the idea of creating a "deportation force" to remove undocumented immigrants from the country, amounted to "fascist talk."

    Why don't you boys talk about this at your next White Supremacist meeting.

    Your OK as long as they are all a lighter shade of pale. Our founding fathers grated us the Liberty of Free speech, the right to peaceably assemble, freedom of religion (ANY AND ALL RELIGION'S), the right to own property, the right to travel freely within and between states, etc. I already pointed this out to you yesterday but I guess your brain is so full of yourself there is no room to absorb any real information. Don't forget your religion, Christianity is not mentioned in the Constitution a single time. Get over it. You right wingers tried and failed to convince congress to amend the constitution several times the last 100 years or so. What does that tell you.

    So you are admitting you lied when you said it was because, "FBI investigations after 911 found the profits were going to El-Qaida! crazy muslims!" Speaking of terrorists what do you think about those five protesters who were shot late Monday night near the Black Lives Matter encampment by those angry white supremacists. I wonder how your guy Trump feels about it.

    Yes humans are part of the natural world but the pollution we create is not. How can you possibly ignore that fact. We are responsible for creating the natural imbalance of this planet whether you want to admit it or not. We humans are also cutting down trees and defoliating the planet at record pace which also upsets the delicate balance because trees convert CO2 into oxygen through the process of photosynthesis. Ninety seven + percent of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities. Which Climatologists do you think are more swayed politically, the 97% or the 3%. Try not to ignore the facts so future generations can enjoy what we have for so many years.

    Because you Fox news enthusiasts have the tendency to distort the truth or change the subject when proven wrong. You don't want to open the book on Malcolm X because it won't help your agenda. Do a little research on Malcolm after he returned from Mecca. Here let me help because you probably won't take the time, and please don't try to connect the Nation of Islam to the Real Islam.
    Malcolm X was effectively orphaned early in life. His father was killed when he was six and his mother was placed in a mental hospital when he was thirteen, after which he lived in a series of foster homes. In 1946, at age 20, he went to prison for larceny and breaking and entering. While in prison, Malcolm X became a member of the Nation of Islam.
    By March 1964, Malcolm X had grown disillusioned with the Nation of Islam and its leader Elijah Muhammad. Expressing many regrets about his time with them, which he had come to regard as largely wasted, he embraced Sunni Islam. After a period of travel in Africa and the Middle East, which included completing the Hajj, he repudiated the Nation of Islam, disavowed racism and founded Muslim Mosque, Inc. and the Organization of Afro-American Unity. He continued to emphasize Pan-Africanism, black self-determination, and black self-defense.
    In February 1965 he was assassinated by three Nation of Islam members. The Autobiography of Malcolm X, published shortly after his death, is considered one of the most influential nonfiction books of the 20th century.

    This is all I came up with and it says nothing about Muslims or Al-Qaeda.

    A fugitive former owner of the La Shish restaurant chain in metro Detroit, charged with tax evasion and citizenship fraud, says he wants to return to the United States.

    In a telephone interview from Beruit published Monday in the Detroit Free Press, Talal Chahine said he misses his home and friends. The 58-year-old said he was the victim of a post-Sept. 11 atmosphere that led to overzealous targeting of Arab-Americans and Muslims.

    The FBI isn't commenting on his remarks. The U.S. attorney's office in Detroit notes that Chahine has been wanted since he fled the U.S. in 2005.

    Investigators say Chahine skimmed $20 million from the La Shish restaurant chain. They've previously said they thought he was in Lebanon.

    The La Shish restaurant name was later revived under a different owner.

    Do a fact check on Hillary and compare it to Trump and what you will find is it's not even close. You said you "observed Palestinians celebrating after 9-11." Well that was in Palestine right. You also said. " and i bet some radicals did in the US." That statement wouldn't hold water in a court of law, so I won't comment.

    Did you hear Trumps latest lie? Trump,"blacks killed 81% of white homicide victims."

    Trump’s number is about double the most accurate figures we could find. That makes him about 100 percent off.
    Politifact ruling:
    Trump tweeted an image that made various statistical claims, including that blacks kill 81 percent of white homicide victims. Almost every number in the image is wrong. The statistics on white victims are exaggerated five-fold. The police-related deaths are off as well.
    We rate this claim Pants on Fire.

    Mostly True 31 (22%)

    Make that 16 now not 15

    Did a google search on your Andiamo's restaurant and I read they just celebrated their 25th anniversary last year. I found no information about Andiamo's of Detroit being closed after 9-11 because profits were going to El-Qaida! Maybe you got the name wrong or maybe Foxy got everything wrong :)

    The POINT is your leading candidate for president of the United States is either a pathological liar or one of the most uninformed candidates in US history. Do a fact check on his recent statements and see what you come up with. I know everyone else is lying, right.
    Of his last 71 statements 75% were ruled to be mostly false or completely false. His 5 true statements weren't even completely true. Yep Trump sure sounds presidential to me. What is wrong with your party!

    I bet Hilly has more insight than your guys Ben,"Doesn't Stand Behind' His Own Remarks Carson and Donald, “Thousands of people were cheering.” Trump.

    The Washington Post called the claim “outrageous” and the independent fact-checking website, PolitiFact, concluded that Trump’s statement “flies in the face of all the evidence we could find. We rate this statement 'Pants on Fire.'”
    Former New York governor and GOP presidential candidate George Pataki denounced Trump's claim on Twitter. "Not sure what luxury spider-hole @realDonaldTrump was hiding in on Sept11 but I saw Americans come together that day"
    Jersey City, N.J., Mayor Steven Fulop also weighed in on Twitter. "Either @realDonaldTrump has memory issues or willfully distorts the truth, either of which should be concerning for the Republican Party"
    Even laid back Marco Rubio chimed in. " Sen. Marco Rubio addressed Trump's claim today in Iowa.
    "It's not true. And there's plenty of fact-checks to prove that it isn't," he said.
    Hilly is looking stronger every day. You guys better give Mitt a call.

  • Not a big fan of Motley Fool or SA because of the lack of accountability but every so often I read something that makes sense.
    Interestingly, if matters don't improve and if Linn's credit facility is not cut by greater than the $790 million they have in borrowing capacity today, management could use these proceeds toward further debt reduction. Buying back all remaining Senior Notes at current prices next year would cost the company just $282 million and would leave, using the assumptions provided above, $3.98 billion in credit facility borrowings outstanding (including a $500 million term loan) and $1.50 billion in Second Lien Notes that are due in 2020. Add to all of this the fact that, by buying back debt this year, the company will nearly guarantee positive cash flow in 2017 of $112.71 million ($130.48 million if they allocate all cash next year toward their credit facility repayments), and I don't see much downside moving forward unless energy prices fall much further or fraud comes about.
    Takeaway

    Right now, Mr. Market seems to still be bearish about Linn Energy and LinnCo (NASDAQ:LNCO) and I do see why. However, I think the risks associated with the company, especially after seeing the recent decline in the price of Senior Notes, has been very much overstated and I hold firm to my view that the future for the company looks appealing for long-term investors who don't mind volatility. As of the time of this writing, Linn is my third-largest holding and will likely remain as such unless the picture turns bad or until I find something that makes for a better long-term prospect.

    Serious Larry! By breathing out, we are simply returning to the air the same CO2 that was there to begin with. We are not adding to the CO2 level by breathing but nice try. Obviously your mind is closed to the facts and no scientific data will open it. I see why Fox news is so popular in some homes though.

    Some climate change is natural but not all climate change. I'm sure you've heard how volcanic eruptions and asteroid impacts have dramatically influenced weather in the short term by releasing gases or debris into the atmosphere. One of these natural events or a combination wiped out the dinosaurs. The important thing to remember here is that these events eventually ceased allowing the environment to slowly recover. Scientific studies show that globally, volcanoes on land and under the sea release a total of about 200 million tonnes of CO2 annually. This seems like a lot, right but scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC) determined that in 2012 more than 9.7 billion tonnes of carbon were emitted into the atmosphere.This stat is the shocker though, 550 billion: Approximate cumulative tonnes of carbon emitted into the atmosphere by all human activities between 1870 and 2013. Think about that and understand this is not a one time event, it continues every day every year. It's all about tonnes of carbon and as these studies have proven man is releasing far more carbon into the atmosphere than nature ever has.

    ""and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

    Once again count on norris to take words out of context to attempt to support his personal agenda.
    LIBERTY: the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one's way of life, behavior, or political views. The power of choice! Get it.
    The blessings of liberty refers to all of the benefits that are afforded by having liberty. Free speech, the right to peaceably assemble, freedom of religion (ANY AND ALL RELIGION'S), the right to own property, the right to travel freely within and between states, etc.
    "Our posterity" means the children of the people of the United States, and their children's children, and their children's children's children, and so on.
    So, taken all together, that clause of the Preamble means "to provide for the guarantee of all of the blessings that are afforded by having liberty, and to extend that guarantee to both us, the people, and our children, and our children's children, forever. Stop reaching norris and stop abusing the ninth Commandment.
