nikky yes better a well told lie than a 4 letter word I guess lol. You would not of like Harry Truman as he called them as he saw them and was I think the last guy that didn't let BS interfere with the truth. The Israeli action in the Gaza is not so much XXXX it is big pile of XXXX which they love to stomp on and get everyone else legs covered with their XXXX.
I guess your hero is Michael B. who now says that the Gov (ie Obama) is going to use illegal's for medical experiments. How anyone could vote that nut job is beyond me but clearly a lot of people in Min has stood out in the minus winter so long they have froze their brains as she continues to be a JOKE.
Europe may part of the problem but an easy way to find the reason is summer driving season is coming to and end and oil always goes down when that happens. Also with AXAS it is more than that. We see a MM taking up a position in AXAS and now the movement of the stock price down which means more shares for less and I think that is what is happening with AXAS. It is a buck stock unless oil goes down to 80 which frankly I do not see happening especially with the EU and Russia thing plus the killing field in the Middle East just keeps things to much "at risk" but I do see MM boys buying up a bigger position in AXAS. If you think AXAS has lost value or future value that would explain the movement down but frankly I think it is just MM crooked but legal stock market which in the long run may mean more share value for us all as the MM boys have a game plan in mind and with enough shares push to have their way.
Shame actually as the CEO of AXAS seems to have finally gotten the Co. where it needed to be now an outside force which is looking only to make a quick buck will have influence to push for who knows what.
vern you assume that production will not up which I do not know will happen but neither do you. If the current continues production will go up but you are correct that it could go down as the wells wind down. The only way that Production can go up is by new wells continue to be drilled with good results.
Clearly SSN is producing more today than 6 months ago and even if my figures are high as they may be now more than in a long time their is production behind the stock value and somewhere around 40 cents.
This stock is a gamble and has not been a good gamble in the past and I have said that over and over they are better "investments" I would recommend AXAS for one and SSN needs a 100% well to come in for them to make ANY BIG LEAP.
You asked a question which I merely got curious about and put some numbers to it. I was surprised when it came out close to the price of the stock but it sorta did lol.
Lake you might enjoy watching a documentary called Particle Fever. It is about the history and discoveries and current events of the Super Collider. Goes into the2013 discovery of the "God Particle" as well as other examples of "NEW" discoveries made over the years. This show does not prove nor does it try to prove a God or no God but does show a lot of interesting discoveries and facts that show how "Rare" our planet is and all life on it as well as showing how much the theories of science are being changed and expanded.
The USA had the chance to have this exciting operation but was rejected because of cost. It also shows how many countries which are "enemies" have scientist working side by side to explore the yet to be unrevealed secrets of the universe. Given the discoveries of the Collider and the ones found by the Neutron Microscope and other types of "going small" we live in an exciting time . Those who hold on to their beloved flat earth theories will be left behind. But they will stand as a brick wall to try to prevent their ideas from being proved wrong or for the love money to fight against proven science as we see happen now in the Global Warming fight.
The show is on Netfick if you have that and is worth a look.
BS you made this statement "His reputation isn't actually that great anyway. He got caught stealing."
Then you posted a report from Wikipedia which I guess is your proof. You really need to be careful when you add a word like stealing especially when pointing a finger at a rich man. Take the current Gov. of Fla.
The CEO of a large Medical Supply Service that was convicted and fined the largest civil fine in the history of the US. Billions of dollars taken from your and mine tax dollars adding billions of dollars of cost to Medicare and Medicaid. Yet this man the well paid CEO of the company was not found guilty of anything only paid a fine. Then the good people of Fla elected him their Gov. Maybe they hoped he could work his magic on the Fla books. Or maybe unlike you they do not think that he being the CEO of a #$%$ed company was a tarnish on his reputation and clearly they either wanted a #$%$ more than a Demo or they do not believe he was a #$%$.
The Bunker investigation did not prove that JF was a #$%$ as you state as he was not found guilty of fraud or stealing but paid a fine for risking his crew's life. He was guilty of being a good capitalist perhaps by putting profit ahead of safety of his employees. Or maybe he was a #$%$ and maybe he still is but I sure can't prove it nor did the Bunker Investigation. As for as his reputation I would disagree with you on that as he has a very good reputation at making money.
bob do you actually believe that Hamas can "wipe" Israel out? Israel decided where the line in the sand was and reacted with 10 times the force and 100 times the death toll that Humas had used and is using on Israel. Israel can control their response but they choose to act like the #$%$ did when the French resistance killed a German they would kill 10 French. At least the dreaded #$%$ did not line up and shoot children. This "human logic" or Kingdom of the Earth Wisdom is nothing new.
Be a more deadly foe than your enemy. We did it when we fire bombed German Cities to "end" the war and when we dropped the A bomb on Japan. Terror can be effective in some cases in the minds of those of the Kingdom of the world.
When Jesus spoke those words bob ever Jew knew who was slapping them and who was demanding that they carry the pact of the Roman ruling army. Jesus did not say sneak in at night and murder as many as you can, hide along the roads since you know the territory and attack like a thief in the night. Nor did he say work to form alliances with powerful nations to protect yourselves or to attack the Romans.
Bob you trust Jesus to raise you from the dead but do not trust his words to "turn the other cheek"
Now that is amazing.
vain attempt to get past censers lol. I posted why I disagree with Speaker of House on making backing Israel up more important than peace process and gee no post. Yahoo has really been showing its right wing leaning or maybe just following the money but I guess to question both the speaker of the house and Israel was just too much for them.
Or maybe it was calling the present PM a former terrorist that offended them? Who in Middle East can't were that name? Killing comes easier than Peace or even the desire for peace but Israel latest blasting of Gaza killing anyone they please as a way of getting back at Humas shows clearly that turning the other cheek is not something Israel believes or practices and so for living by the sword has worked for them but for how long?
For every dead person there is extended family and friends that will hate those that killed the love one not a good way to live in peace beside your neighbors.
Now wanta bet this one makes it ?
vern 698 times 100 bucks a barrel is 69,000 bucks a day. 100 days is 6,900,000 or about .12 per share.
36 cents per 300 days or .42 cents a share a year. Ok I am a little high based on the 100 bucks but my guess is between .35 and 40 per share at current rate for a year.
Hey you asked not me.
nikk I agree with you but.... take things that are stalled forever in Congress that seem to have no time limit by the elected officials like immigration or min wage or a hwy bill. Maybe the most important thing to vote on would be a military action. If the Pres and Congress got us into a situation then a required vote to support it or withdraw by the majority would be a nice safe guard?
Time does not bother on such a vote by majority on some issues as does how easy the American public can be led to believe what is false. Clearly both parties are skilled as Lies and misdirection or having their own facts. The idea of an elected official who is somewhat "smarter" than the average voter I think was the idea but given some of the idiots in office or the ones who must play a fool to stay in office or out right bought and paid for maybe just having the whole mob show up to vote might do the nation less harm in the long run.
Most cities and counties do bring big bond issue projects to the public and other "hot potatoes" or those that grow into them. The size of Police Dept what type of garbage trucks, who to buy sewer lines from may not be something you want just anyone voting on but maybe rely on public hearings by experts instead of the closed counsel meeting where the city engineers job is on the line if he does not suggest who is giving the most to the mayor. Lots of ways to improve the way we do Gov on all levels but most folks just do not care enough to even go vote would be my bet.
Mr. shores the courts have been political since our nation began so nothing new in How things are done.
It appears to me given my limited life experience that the Parties are more divided and more demanding because of the divide and that is also reflected in whom is considered for a judgeship. Some time a single issue such as abortion will make or break a person attempt at office (either way) However as I have not lived but a short period of our nations history I can not say such division or party control is a new thing and given we had a civil war perhaps it is not that new in how much divided we are as a people.
While I dislike the two party system or now two within the GOP and one in the Demo and how dysfunctional it has driven our country the idea of allowing or requiring a vote of the masses before the Gov. could act is simply impractical and would cause our country to be a laughing stock even more than it is today.
I would support a vote to use arms of force by the majority to "continue or start a conflict" that a president and both houses had agreed on like Iraq. Immigration would be worth of a vote as well as would a default of the Gov or even a shut down of the Gov to tell politicians where the boundaries are that their jobs are demanded to reach. Min wage, health care, globalization are other choices that could be put up on a vote of majority.
Again each with choices like min wage increase yes or no If yes win then an amount would also be listed giving several choices to voters like 4 different amounts or % and time frame.
You would I am sure end up with situation where a state like yours would vote one way and the nation another thus your elected rep. would have to support not his state or area but the whole country.
The time frame would be the biggest problem and state lossing out to the nation would surely increase the divided nature of our country not improve it. Dangerous but different lol
Mr. BS spare me the "I do not have a side" the fact you posted what you did and your comments about Harry Reid displayed clearly what your side is on this vote. You sir may not be registered voter to any party but you clearly by past post have shown yourself to very libertarian in your views and clearly a man who can and does vote GOP but still you fain NO SIDE? Come BS stand up and be counted instead of lurking and taking your shots then claim you never fired a round. What happened to the old BS who didn't mind showing his "side" to all. Your 5,000 Dow under Obama was wrong but at least a "side" you believed.
ACA is the ONLY Liberal agenda I see that has come from Obama unless of course you count the "Liberal"
eco views which has given us not a 5,000 dow but a 17,000 Dow and frankly I am glad for that since it has made me a lot of money that GW recession took away from me.
The majority is alive and well and has spoken in 2012 and will again speak in 2014 and then 2016.
A Side will win and you claim you will be one of the few American's who have no side in the results?
You actually believe that or have you got so defensive lately that you feel only comfortable when hiding behind such a foolish statement. We all have a side.
Giroux in an effort to be fair the south has always been poorer than other area's of the USA and this do to how folks lived (rural) and how the states developed or remain the same after civil war. South very racist so cheap black labor meant cheaper white labor pay as well. South both Demo and GOP ruled by folks with money and have been pro business and pro money and anti labor rights thus keeping labor wages down and again until 60's the law allowed less pay for blacks than whites for same job and less pay to whites or black get your job. Demo's ran the south in the 60's so do not blame GOP for that part of history. The rich whites merely swapped parties starting in the late 60's as demo's went for civil rights and all means possible has been used since to keep pay low and profits high.
Some area's of the West has same patterns (NM, Az,col) where Hispanic were used for cheap labor.
Texas has both Hispanic and black cheap labor but unlike most of the rest of the south has a lot of industry which pushed up labor wages.
Both parties over the last 100 years have been anti labor and pro capital but clearly starting with FDR we see the Demo party being the party of the working man and the common folk with SS, labor laws, safety laws which protect and help the worker. Many in the Tea Party have benefitted from these "liberal" laws and take the benefits and hate the party that gave it to them lol.
Mr BS once again you claim to be for democracy then you show clearly you are not. I would like for you to show me examples of when a decision of the court of appeals 3 judge panel is not appealed to the full court.
You can not be so dense as to not know that is how our court system works can you? It is not Demo or GOP because they both do it and MUST if the decision is to be appealed to the SC unless in rare cases the SC can agree (by 5-4 at least) to hear the case)
You do not seem to mind the majority 2-1 decision against ACA but you start to rant and rave the loss of democracy IF the whole court by a MAJORITY findings reverse the decision. Which democracy ruling do you favor? The case MAY reach the SC and if it does your conservative side has a 5-4 majority so maybe you will again enjoy democracy if they rule 5-4 the way you favor.
Not so much about democracy or whatever you want to call it. What it really is in your case and mine and with almost ALL American's is does the decision, law, election, favor the way I want things.
You want a democracy only when your side wins. If your side losses the majority feelings then you love a house of Rep. who do not at all represent the will of the majority of the people as the House of Rep ratings is the lowest of all. Lower than the Senate and Lower than the President. Your majority saying clearly throw the bums out but alas given the corrupt system of safe seat only new bums would win and that thanks to a SC ruling . You do want a democracy or republic you want to win as do most of us and try to find ways not to have to put it such a way that shows our on self interest right or wrong.
warmwith KMP has a past history which you check out. It is in the business of mainly but not only pipelines but in energy sector in other ways. Ask yourself a question in the next 10 years will pipelines be needed more? Less? about the same? How long will current pipelines move product from current field? (Balkens will last how long? Eagle Ford? New fields will require new pipelines to at least hook up with old ones.
No one can see 20 years down the road given middle east, Russia, Terrorist, global warming and things unknown lol but KMP is a good "safe" place today to invest and then like all your investment you watch and use your intelligence to try to play it as secure as you can. A nice stop limit to protect a % of your investment which hopefully will rise over the years. XOM is maybe safer but pays about 2.5% in dividends Chev a little better. Some medical LMP pay 5-6% but who knows what the future is in medical services?
Only a time machine will accurately answer your question but maybe Mr. Buffet will let you use his?
nikk sorry I think I misread your post if by revenue positive you mean the state got more than they paid in I know that the South including Texas gets more from the Fed than paid in.
lake do you have a site to Prove your statement or do we by faith believe in you? You resort to LIes to try to discredit God. So tell me Lake just HOW do you know those men were paid? In fact care to tell us who those men were. You attack not only God but men you really do not even know by name and claim they are all corrupt. You are a sad example of a Liberal and that is why I find you no different than a tea party liar who will Lie and try to discredit anyone to prove a point that of course is false.
This post is one of the easiest of yours to see how mean spirited and untruthful you truely are.
Go on Lake Name the men you call corrupt. Can you even Name them?
scs All Border laws were established with commerce, tariffs, quota's and trade issues as the focus. Those revenues gave the USA its operating money for its early years. So the law on the border and all court decisions over 200 years have supported that idea that the Federal ALONE controls the border.
You may not like that but it is the Law. Shame those right wingers in the house and Senate do not introduce a bill that would change that to give states some authority but instead they waste their time on other issues.
Texas Law Enforcement of all types has to be "Asked" to help or accompany Federal Law Enforcement when a "Border" Law enforcement operation is on going. The area that the Court (SC) has established as "Border Nexus" belongs only to the US Gov. Border search and seizure laws belong ONLY to the US Law Enforcement agencies which have given that authority and the state can not on its own claim a Border Nexus search even if standing on the Rio Grande.
Border Law Enforcement was a remains an area of inter agency dispute among the Feds and now under home land security most of those laws are now found within Homeland but not all.
Perry is merely doing what Perry loves to do. He is a born show boater and loves getting attention but the 1,000 state paid for Nat Guard will only be allowed to do at the border what the Obama led Fed Gov tells them they can do. fortunately the agencies get alone better than the leadership in most cases and they manage to work together most of the time.
Texas could not afford to have the responsibility of border security and yes your taxes would have to go up if they ever got that responsibility.
Giroux I am sure that every night the Demo leadership get down on their knees and pray that the house will even try for a vote on impeachment. If they do I think that will cost the GOP the Senate as it will remind people just how nothing ever changes with the GOP. The right wing even more right wing now than when old Newt ran them has done nothing but follow the Newt years failures on how to Gov. Gov shutdowns, Impeachment (they actually had a case in Clinton situation) committee after committee trying to score political points with one investigation after another and even the spoiled and slow to learn US voters finally woke up to wasteful and child like this type of Gov. was.
GW Bush had numerous US buildings attack and lost of American life and the Demo controlled house never once opened an investigation. The same with the whole Iraq screw up. Trying to be an adult and get alone does not work with the foaming at the mouth right wingers as again we see the rah rah about Bengasi over and over again as if the public has not seen and heard all that they want to about that.
Most of those house seats are safe again thanks to a political corrupt Supreme Court that ruled you can rig elections and form dist that are safe for political reason as long as you do not do it by race????
Such dist insure that idiots will keep their seats in the house leaving only the Senate at play.
Obama may have low appeal right now but compared to the HOUSE he is a dream come true. The House is truly a house of fools. The GOP eats their own as the defeat of the #2 GOP in the house shows. Canter was not right enough for the mad dogs so they ate him up. I do indeed hope that they impeach Obama to show once again just what a shame and disgrace they are to our nation.
