    Global warming trend

    scs the Gov already provides insurance for Nuke plants. No matter how unsafe they are built to save cost the Gov will come in if a disaster happens and make it all ok with billions and billions of tax dollars. Yet you focus on the fact that some Americans may not get insurance. Funny how you guys on the right never seem to mind when it is a good old capitalist corp taking Gov handouts but God help us if a citizens gets some help.

    grgsvll clearly not you so you are the last of your line I guess. I doubt very much that I will be effected by global warming to any great degree but I sure think my grandson will have to deal with it in may ways.

    I like for him to remember me as one who was willing to try to at least ease the trend instead of saying
    Who gives a dam.

    Mr BS no offense taken each of your spelling and grammer corrections were correct I assumed correctly that you and others had the good sense to be able to understand my shortcuts either on purpose, careless or care not a whit since I do not consider this an English class nor my post an assignment to be graded I run through them. Unlike you I do not have time on my hands given all your research that you go through to back up what you want to claim and of course ignore any that is not in line with your thinking and the sheer amount of post that you are doing shows me a man with a lot of time on his hands.

    I said it was maybe you. Perhaps I should ask Grump who it was since he jumped on me and insisted that who ever the author was meant a change in the overall trend of global warming instead of a start of warming in the mid 1990" till today. Which of course is wrong and is why I posted the articled clearly showing that idea wrong.

    How about it Grump who was it you defended so lol got the wedding tackle to name them?

    There has been a poster on here maybe Mr. BS who thinks that global warming has stopped in the last 15years or so. Well your wrong.

    NOAA and NASA estimate that the global average temperature for 2013 was about 58 degrees F., give or take a couple tenths of a degree. NOAA ranked 2013 as the fourth hottest on record, tied with 2003, while NASA listed the year in seventh place, in a three-way tie with 2006 and '09. Schmidt attributes the discrepancy to slight variations in how the two agencies calculate temperatures in remote parts of the globe and maintains that the difference is not statistically significant.
    “What is significant is the fact than this is very clearly another top 10 year, as all of the last several years have been,” he says.

    Whatever reason you may think causes or adds to the cause of global warming the fact is we are still in a warming trend caused by whatever you want to think and if it does not change (which it could by factors that trump the ones causing the warming trend) we are deep trouble down the road.

    To make the trend political seems the dumbest thing to do. But we do especially in the good old USA do seem to do things in a very dumb way and inject left and right politics right into the middle of them and thus making it almost impossible to even have an intelligent study of whatever the problem may be.

    Of course true to politics some will cry that NOAA and NASA is part of the conspiracy and thus not to be trusted.

    rami the bottom line is does Mr. F want to bail out FRO or not. 190 million is nothing to him.
    Free cash flow does matter to determine how much of the 190 million FRO will be short and rates mater on free cash flow.

    My bet is not so much on rates although they have improved and not on the balance sheet but it is on how I think Mr. F will act on FRO.

    Clearly I am betting my money on what I believe are you short? If not then you are merely talking.

    This stock has been in the past played like a drum and I think it is being played again.

    Time will tell if they screw stockholders with a BK type restructure or they come out with something different. If your so sure that FRO will go BK then short it get some skin in the game.

    Lake gee hate to make you wrong again or point out that you are putting not just words but action in play for me both of which your making up. I do not now pray to a cross and never have.

    Rome used a cross for a reason and also a sword. Paul being a Roman citizen was beheaded as it would have been against Roman Law to crucify a Roman Citizen. The first Christian symbol was not the cross but the fish. When I was growing up one of the reason we WASP looked down on Catholics and were sure they were going to hell is that they did have crosses so involved in their worship & Churches and that it was a idol.

    Wasn't racism but anti catholic like anti Semitic. We WASP were better than Catholics of course but strangely enough the religious prejudices (as Catholic's considered us loss and going to hell as well) did not end at the door of racism. I could go to eat or the show or ride in the front of the bus with a catholic as long as they were white. Jewish folks of course were rich and drove their own cars. The good old days in the old south.

    Mr. BS afraid to tell you the real reason for those fake towers but by the time you read this all evidence will be removed or otherwise destroyed so it is ok to tell the truth. They were really put up by NASA to ID by cell phone signature the user. Then the user was ID by contract with cell co. Then they were ID by political party membership and if the user was discovered to be a GOP member a secret code was entered into the phone that put out sub normal hearing suggesting in an attempt to end the Paranoid behavior that most who Vote GOP tend to have. If those programs obtained the desired results (by random survey calls to users would be made to see how effective the program proved to be.) Then the Gov would next attempt to target white males in the south to attempt to deprogram the years of racisms and also look at Hispanic's as not all illegal alien's. Next would come the target to guys like you to enjoy paying taxes.

    Now if you do not believe me as you seem to believe everything else you read maybe since you seem to be so smart on all subjects you posted on today you could do some research on one or two of those "towers" and find out from Gov records at various different Gov offices some county some city or maybe state to see who built the towers. Now if your research show that ALL the towers were built on Fed Gov land then you better start thinking about believing the details of my post again.

    Night night and be sure to look under the bed.

    Price of oil may have more to do with the price of shares than shorts. The balance sheet is getting better each quarter and as long as the wells continue to produce as they have or better and the price of oil stays above 90 the stock should trade in a nice range.

    Lake you are right many Christians did kill those who were not Christians and they sinned when they did it.

    As to perfecting beheading as you claim I would say that pre dated Christianity as Rome beheaded plenty as did other countries.

    The GOP will try to use ISIS to scare voters to the polls but before we invaded Iraq a GOP idea there was no ISIS. ISIS is a political party that uses religion to excite many in its ranks and justifies all the evil it does by religion. ISIS was before ISIS Sadam H. boys and when they "disappeared" they took their weapons with them. Next Fox and the GOP will say ISIS has WMD that was never found?

    One thing for sure you put a stick in a red ant bed and stir them up you better expect to get stung if you stay around the bed and these ants can get the money to fly. Will they come to US and do terror? If so it was not Obama that caused but GW and the GOP who stirred up the ant bed in Iraq. We have been very lucky to so far avoid any terrorist attack from abroad.

    nikky yezov I am old enough to remember the panama canal and who was in charge of Panama at the time.
    The GOP did not support Carter on getting rid of it as you claim but somehow under RR the President of Panama was murdered and a pro US anti Cuba dictator was put into office by the name of Noriega (sp) who we later had to invade Panama to arrest and imprison for drug dealing.

    OPEX and big oil played a much larger hand in the 16% inflation than did Carter and maybe he should of imposed Price controls over the price of gasoline as Nixon had used before? For your information I made a lot of money off those 16% CD for 5 years and since I did not buy a house or car during the that time I made more than I lost due to inflation. Not to mention a huge salary increase to adjust for a yearly inflation. As I recall the price of gas and money and all things money buys (houses, cars etc) went back down while my CD's and salary stayed high now tell me why that was so bad on me? Lots of salaried people had the same adjustments as I did as well if you check the difference between the average salary before and after those several years of high inflation you might see that in the long run salaried workers did not get hurt and houses could and were refinanced when the rates came down and I kept all that money the CD gave me.

    Lake you have turned out to be gutless. You are glad that they are 1 maybe 2 less NRA members you say but seem to ignore the FACT that that would be true only because of one death.

    Thomas Jefferson spent the last half of his life writing a bible so I guess maybe you missed that point in your deceived way of thinking.

    Jefferson was a smart fellow who was very gifted at writing and that he spent his last years writing his bible tells me that while he may not of believed as I do he unlike you believed. And unlike you he had the guts to stand on what he said.

    Now explain how you can be happy about one less NRA member because of his being killed and not enjoy the fact that a death made your happeness?

  • rogere1946 rogere1946 Sep 2, 2014 3:29 PM Flag

    You right wing boys are really something you post stuff you can't back up as truth as you did in this post.

    One guy comes out and says something and if it agrees with right wing nut job ideas then that guy is right and all the rest wrong. When 95% of climate scientist come and make a statement about global warming you choose to listen to the 5% that disagree and call what they say as truth and accuse the 95% of being bought out. That is world in the mind of a twisted right winger like you.

    Jimmy Carter History will show was a lot better president than you or most think today but look at Truman for how wrong the public opinion can be. Carter should be a hero for what he alone was able to do in the middle east. Had he failed and Egypt and Jordan not changed their foreign policy toward Israel then the "moderation" of the other Arab countries would not of happened and we really do not know what would happened in the middle east. Carter also saved us billions of dollars (something you right wing anti gov. spending nut jobs seem to forget ) by giving away the panama canal especially given all the billions being spent now to make it larger. It was a pure US Gov. supported and dead loss to US budget to give Big Business free passage. The world has not fallen to pieces since Carter gave it away as the right howled and shipments come and go today as when we owned it.

    Carter's Iran hostage situation is a speed bump on the road compared to the GW Bush GOP disaster in Iraq.
    Naïve does not even come close to what GW Bush was while in office. Led around by a ring in his nose by his nut job advisors and out of his league. He listen to and trusted the wrong people and dismissed the right ones like the National Advisor on Terrorism who warned GW and all the boys and gals at the Bar Be Que that an airplane attack was coming and OBL was the guy behind it. Pass the ribs and beer got more attention from the boys and girls at the ranch.

    Lake from your first post "The good news?One less NRA member, maybe two" So deny all you want too but good news means you like the news. Now if you want to be a coward and not just a liar then claim you merely were asking a question if it was good news.

    You who never ask a question but only post what is truth as you see it.

    You used to have a set and stand behind your post but on this your running away from it.

    I will let the board decide on their own if they see you getting "good news" out of death at a gun range.

    Mr. BS you call it naïve to see that Hamas rather we like them or not is real and a power that will have to be dealt with. Egypt was a nation at one time that also called for the destruction of Israel as was Jordon but Mr. Naïve Carter ended that by not ignoring them as a power in the Middle East but as a power that had to become a part of solving a problem. Hamas will not go away by rockets or bombing but go stronger as each person who was not an avid Hamas supporter but now has a family member killed by Israeli bombs.

    Northern Ireland should of showed you something as well as Mr. Naïve Carter work at Camp David which defied all the experts ideas of what would happen.

    What you call Naïve has produced more than bombs, shock and awe and all other ways of killing.
    If you see Israel with eyes that are only open to the Israeli way of demanding you do then you are blind to the truth. I know of no nation in the world that was Given land that was taken from them over 1900 years ago without any seeing that in doing so many other problems were created as well. The way to solve these problems by Israeli and Hamas way of thinking is by force. I say that Mr. Naïve Carter brought more peace to the Middle East than the arms race has. Egypt before Camp David was just Hamas with a nation. Hamas as a territory and the responsibility to govern, and protect its people as Egypt and Jordan had might be an easier form of people to deal with than a bunch of terrorist with no recognized authority to speak for a people and a land.

    You are indeed a bold and foolish man to call President Carter Naïve given his record of success in creating not one but two nations who gave up the cry to destroy Israel. Israel should consider that it was offering peace at a cost that accomplished more than all their US military weapons have given them.

    gmlaird I am betting on Mr. F to keep the FRO boat afloat. For the last 2 months of this quarter the rates have been way over what makes FRO money. Depends on how many ships were on the spot market as to how that will effect the balance sheet for the quarter. It could go lower but I think that all the bad news that drove the stock down is out on the table. Now comes the solution. It could come before the next quarter release or after but I think it will come before the end of the year. Lets face it Mr. F owns a huge chunk on FRO on way or another and would he for a mere 190 million see it go into a general BK? I do not think so.
    He very may restructure FRO within his own companies or merely float a loan from his personal account.

    Time will tell but at near 2 bucks or lower looks like a good gamble to me.

    Lake you post enjoying one person death and then you say I am mentally ill. lol

    I have never seen a post of yours with any mercy or compassion for those who dare to disagree with the all knowing Lake. Your a closed mind liberal which is no different that a close mind tea party right winger.

    I do not hate you nor do I want to see anything bad happen to you. I do and will continue to point out the hate in your post and how self-righteous and never wrong you are. Have you ever admitted you are wrong?
    It seems when it comes to admitting being wrong those on both extremes of the left and right are no different.

    You do not get to frame God as you like to especially since you do not even believe in God. You try to tell me how to believe and what to believe since again you got it all figured out. I do indeed believe the whole bible. How I believe it is something you are clueless about yet that does not stop you from telling how I must believe it since somehow you think you are in charge of how every Christian must believe or not believe.
    That makes Lake a God in his own mind I suppose. Hate for you? Nah pity is the word I really do pity how silly your mind works or fails too.

    Grump your endless dodges and twisting is like a cancer. Like I said if you get cancer you will do a lot more looking up facts and talking to people who have been there and done that. One of the most helpful things about cancer centers is the support groups of people who have been there and done that.

    I have said for a long time that we already have death squads and that in the USA is public policy. The public policy that the more money you have the more you can afford insurance or pay for you own treatment since we worship at the alter of capitalism in Public Policy. My post are not about some poor soul who has cancer and no insurance nor poor enough to get Medicade. ACA is attempting to change that situation of what public policy is. Most folks do not want to pay for what may save their lives as they do not believe it will happen to them. Preventative care was before ACA something that was not done with medicade nor by the poor so again Preventative care will change public policy with ACA.

    As for Prostate cancer the American Canser Society still recommends PSA as a way of preventing death by prostate cancer. It can not stop it from happening but can be a way to detect it.

    I read the article as I stated before it did not give definitions of what the writer meant to the terms referred too.

    No way to compare apples to apples unless you know you are looking at apples.

    You tell me since you know so much about prostate cancer what test cause 1/3 of the men who take them serious problems?
