oh I see two cowards disagreed but didn't have any facts to post to prove me wrong lol. That is because you right wingers are WRONG and the facts prove it. Again show me one nation that is not 3rd world and some of the 3rd world have a better record on gun crimes than the US but show me one that runs against what I have posted. You going to believe your lying eyes or the facts? Your lying eyes of course because being cowards you must have a gun to make you feel like a man. What a factless bunch of nut jobs you righties are hell so deluded I think your mental illness should make it illegal for you nuts to own a gun.
Mr bs since when did ONE MAN become the Gov? The guy appears to have broken the law and procedure and no release occurred and he not the congressman is in trouble.
having one racist on the right wing does not make the whole right wing racist but by your way of looking at things one man makes the whole gov guilty. Lol you are paranoid and not just lately.
You gun supports at all cost want to quote everything but FACTS. Nothing shows the facts than our neighbor to the North. Not a 3rd world country at all. Fairly close to the USA in standard of living, education, social classes, job market, society class structure both race and eco wise.
Look up the gun laws of each nation and then compare the two countries gun related crimes and deaths of all types. Then look up cities like Vancouver and Seattle on the West coast and take your pick on the East coast and the middle as well. Do you believe the facts before you eyes? I do not believe you do nor will you as the facts show clearly that Canada has less a problem with gun crime than does the USA % wise.
Again either gun laws has an effect on those figures or folks in Canada or just plain superior to American's when it comes to crime with guns, accidents with guns, suicide with guns. But hey wants guns when we can quote some guys who died 200 years ago as our role models on how to thank about guns. I am sure the founding fathers would of wanted every American walking around with a machine gun or tank to drive. Surely they were as big a gun nuts as the gun nuts in America are today. For those that actually know a little about American history and the rebellion against the Brits it was not guns that won the war it was the French navy and help from the French army and French supplies. Oh how we loved the French back then but hated them when they dared not to goose step to war with little GW.
The Facts are easy to see and can be seen in every none 3rd world nation in the world where gun control is better than in the US so is all types of gun related crime and deaths. Now if you want to make America a 3rd world country like Mexico then maybe we all need lots of guns. But I would rather not become a 3rd world nation and actually act civilized but hey who needs facts.
nikk what scs is not telling you is that in Texas when they first passed the concealed weapons law not only was a criminal records check required but classes where required on guns and situations and also a lot of time at the range with YOUR GUN to actually shoot the darn thing. Over the years the study and training at range is no longer even required by the state. In other words if you pass a criminal background (we know that most of the mass murders were done by nut jobs and not criminal record folks) then you can buy your gun pistol or automatic or AK 47, AR 15, street sweeper whatever your little scared to death heart desires and tote it around for all to see. No need to go the range and learn the weapon just put it on and strut around showing all how bad you are. Cars can be dangerous when in the wrong hands that is why we require at least eye test every 6 years and a book study test and driving test at least at some time but in Texas nothing is required to walk around carrying what is a dangerous weapon (why own it if it is not?) with no proof required that you even know how to load the thing where the safety is located. Now that is what passes for wisdom in the Great State of GOP TEXAS. I go to a cafe that is 85% over 65 in age for those that eat there.
I can't wait to see how many of those folks show up with "heat" strapped on them. Talk about choosing a table with care get your back to the wall and always be in a corner if you can. YAHOOOOOOO ride um cowboy.
oropan Mr. BS is really upset with you for that seizure of personal assets forfeited. I just love it when you nighties end up in dispute lol. Actually it is YOU that is going BIG Gov. on us with such an idea? You want more laws from Big Brother it seems. More taxes and seizures and more penalties for using individual freedoms? Well I agree with you on health insurance and I think in some cases you might already find that when an individual shops for his or her own insurance it certainly does on life Insurance.
As for as forfeiting vehicles and personal assets that too happens when drug dealing is proven but for mere personal use I am afraid you find yourself standing against the tide of "New Tax money from drug taxes"crowd that is more and the cry by most rightist like you. Having a drug in your car does not mean you are on drugs while driving just as having a cell phone does mean you are texting both of which "could" cause a wreck.
I will put you down as in favor of tax and spending when it comes to drug laws hummm does that make you a RHINO?
Lake have not you heard "Guns do not kill people kill"? That is the cry of reason(???) from the gun nuts.
How about "People do not kill Terrorist Kill" If that is true then why do we take measures to protect ourselves from people who happen to be Terrorist? Why do we do all we can to punish and restrict Terrorism?
That is all we can do except try to keep them from getting guns or explosive as that it seems is their God given right to get them but only becomes a problem when they use them to kill others? Any Terrorist (people) can walk into any gun show and load up on all he wants because Guns do not kill Terrorist do so why worry about them getting guns?
The great majority of Americans are for gun control but the minority lead the majority around like lamb. Money and political influence is a lot stronger for those who are pro gun than those who understand that only by an effort (which will of course fail in some cases) to try to keep guns out of the hands of Terrorist.
Terrorist have gone into schools of all kind and murdered students with Guns for years but the response is to arm more not let less. Any FACTUAL comparison of nations that have strict gun control to those like the USA shows clearly more gun related deaths of all kinds across the board. So lets make sure we have more guns to inflate the death rate even more is our answer. Gun related crime is a fast and easy way to see how stupid the gun nuts crys are. Just looking at the border between Canada and the USA shows cities very close together on both sides of the border have a huge different in gun related shootings. That difference has to be because of either Gun laws in Canada or Canadians are superior people to Americans. Take your pick.
scs you got to be kidding. It was the Federal Gov who cleaned up the Houston Ship Channel to the state it is now in which is a lot better than when Industry and Business was doing their own policing. The most serious problems still facing HSC is caused by Business lying and hiding facts from the Gov. Then they go BK and stick taxpayers with clean up. The GOP own Texas and OH how they hate being a Gov that takes away people rights or so they claim. But it was they who passed a law that said the people of NO TOWN or County in Texas could pass a law against Fracking. Yet they speak out the other side of their bought and paid for mouths and say that "texting" while driving is an individual freedom and the STATE Gov should not pass a law to make it illegal and it should be the Cities that pass such a law? I guess folks that text do not give the kind of money the oil business does to the STATE GOP boys to protect them from cities and counties who might want to pass a law which clearly would save lives.
President Carter passed and enforced very strict clean water laws that in a short period of time clean up many of the streams and rivers in the coal states area. RR comes in and ends those laws and enforcement and the streams revert to polluted again. Where was the rights of the individual protected in that? The coal co. have right to pollute everyone's stream or river to make money is all that matters.
If you want clean air and water for your children and you really expect business to do that under Good will and civic pride then you are a lot smart than I thought you were. There is no free rides when it comes to job safety, clean air, water,. Either you want it or you do not. You will pay both ways maybe one way in money and in the other in how long you and your children live and the quality of life. Do not try to fool yourself into believing that business will on their own "do the right thing" Show me examples of where business on their own acted.
7% jump in one day is only pink? My My your standards are high. Most would take that for a year of return.
The rates jump up big time in VLCCF and if they continue to rise or stay where they are you better get out the red lip stick with gloss and eye shadow.
scs your funny if it is Mrs Clinton turn then it must be Jebs WAY DUE TURN. Of all the GOP out there how does it feel to you to once again have to vote for a Bush lol. You will make you a bet on that.
Ks pro family? As in let a family starve if they need food stamps to eat? Pro life? For the fetus only it seems as they love the dealth penality and they do not want to pay for the child or mother to have health care even while still a fetus and certainly after birth. Pro get a job? That is why they support globalism that sends our jobs overseas and why they do not want to raise the min wage and in fact many want to see it done away with.
Teach them how to fish?? Really how do you do that when they want to end public schools and no Gov job training programs? Do they wish to take them to their jobs to show them? or take off time from their work to teach them? reduce the massive government. Ah yes get rid of welfare, EPA, OSHA and end all those terrible rules and regs on Big Business that make them hire based on equality or pay based on the job not sex or race or do away with the labor laws. Yes they are all for those things indeed they are. Are they stupid?
Some are but the ones with power are most certainly not stupid but very smart and totally devoted to their own wellfare with no care at all of others. They are supporters of child abuse and all maner of other abuse by Capitalist laws all without any Gov. restraint.
My question to you is just what laws would you support to protect human life? Or do you feel that someone who cannot take care of themselves deserve no protection at all?
Stupid no DANGEROUS is more what they are and the funny thing is that most of them or dangerous to themselves and their kids. As the majority of them or not in the top 20% of the ruling class that is against all that you are against. No Ks if you are part of the top 20% then congrats but look out they will next want to reduce that number to 10% then 5% as do all 3rd world countries. The great hope of the white man is that the GOP will save them and keep them elite but in fact they will in time reduce them to "poor white working trash".
lake you do not understand the mind set of a huge % of GOP voters. They are about 25% of the GOP voters that do so because of their strong religious belief's. That does not make them greedy or racist. The truth is that once the Demo party had most of the religious vote in the US as they championed most of the "rights"movement that attracted religious voters. Today the sin of abortion and homosexual acts brings them from the Demo tent to the GOP tent. I am not saying I agree with the embracing a party (GOP) that does in fact base it core belief on greed and protection of the rich at a cost to the poor but understanding why people vote the way they do is important if you want to beat them. The GOP right wing is as blind to truth as you are by your post. They are racist that will go with whatever party appeals to them the most. Today that is the GOP. They are gun rights nut job that do the same and clearly the GOP is their party. Lots of American's that want stronger gun laws vote GOP lots who do not want to see homosexuals discriminated against vote GOP. Lots that are poor and need higher wages, safer working conditions, job protection also vote GOP.
Emotions seem to decide a lot of votes today and the GOP is far better at appealing to emotions than are the Demo. It is easier to point a finger at the illegals and brand them "the problem" than to appeal to embrace them as the pope pleaded. Many American's are scared and the GOP has lies that tell them what they fear is caused by "liberal ideas" and again the Demo have no FDR to tell them that all we have to fear is fear itself.
The Demo's do a terrible job of "marketing" their agenda. Sadly a lot of those they try to help turn around and take the help then vote GOP. At most 20% of the voters are rich enough to benefit from the rich tax breaks that the GOP gives to the rich. The other 80% vote against their own best interest or for "ideas" that the GOP plays too.
rails look like the "players" got it as low as they wanted now running it up again. This stock was made for a play if you have cash and balls to play with these boys. With rates back up and all the news hopefully out of the way maybe we can now move toward the 4 buck price it should be at now. 5 or higher later of course that is if SA does not decide to cut back on production.
fisher yes the poor pope a man who can speak other tongues better than American how can he be trusted?
He must have a lab to form an opinion has he? Where is your lab? So when the pope calls for caring and loving people instead of using them for profit I suppose you him wrong on that as well? What other teachings of Jesus do you reject? Achievers and non achievers based on their bank account? Is that your way to judge the worth of a human being? If they had value like yourself they would be "comfortable like yourself"
That is your doctrine of life? You pursue what you believe sir. If your wrong God have mercy on your soul.
lake did you notice the replies you got to your post? You a non believer has eyes that see while the other guys are blind as can be. As you may of read the bible foretells of such people. This pope has not changed his tune since he was made pope. He is at war with the right, left, the old guard, religion and capitalism which most on here really worship but delude themselves into thinking it is Christianity. Child abuse is not Christian regardless of who does it. You can worship God and manna and capitalism always puts manna first.
I give the pope credit for standing in front of those guys and taking them on and in the UN as well but nothing will change. Human nature is corrupted and I doubt they are a few hundred million who agree with the pope much less billions. The ones who have the money and power do not that is for sure. Children will continued to be offered on the alter of Capitalism as will all the poor.
From 1932 to 1980 the well being of the people of the US was at least something a political party would have to pay some attention too. From then till now less and less attention is paid to the less fortunate among as the Great RR cast millions out of mental hospitals into the streets and not an outcry followed. Since that was done the punishment to our country has been none stop as more and more abuse is pressed on the lower classes by the very small class at the top. The pope is lucky he has no real power and is of no real threat or he life would be snapped from him for "preaching" as he does. We have earned our fate.
audio you actually think putting up a fence on our Southern Border will make us safe from terrorist? If so that shows the mentality of Trump supporters. Did you not notice how EVERY Terrorist of 9-11 entered the country? Or the two who tried to blow up airplanes? You are a simple man with simple solutions who react to Trump simple and foolish solutions. Build your fences, That will end all our problems. Stop spending money on the poor that will end our problems. Elect Businessmen that will end our problems.
You are a man so afraid of life in the US that you grasp any straw that appeals to you. Trump is not as stupid as you but he knows how to appeal to stupid people like you. You long for easier times when the US didn't have these problems to deal with and you grasp at any hope a man like Trump throws you his bones.
Fence off Mexico and charge a tariff on all goods coming into the country to pay for it. Had a Demo suggested that (it is protectionism) you would call him a Marx's. I am all for it the fence will accomplish nothing to stop drugs or illegals but at least we will end lots of jobs in Mexico and collect more taxes (and I thought you were against more taxes lol) The big US Corps that use the cheap labor would have to go to Asia to abuse workers and avoid the tariff. Maybe even a few US jobs would result. Turn the US into a police state as we do all we can to find and deport 15 million or so illegals. Oh my and how the right screams now about the Big Bad Gov. yet you want one that hunts down using whatever means they must to find and deport ALL the illegals. No cost of liberty or money to pay for all the hunters or maybe you favor using US military in the US to hunt down illegals? Against the law but laws can be changed.
Yes looking more like a 3rd world country every day. The new American Dream .
suggp he wouldn't be a GOP if he had any other idea lol. Of the top 10% of the country's earners I would say that the GOP gets 8% of their vote if not more. I give them credit for knowing who butters their bread.
The pope brings a two edge sword to the floor of Congress. The conservatives NEED the votes of Catholic Christians but will hear much against their agenda. The Liberals NEED the support to social issues to get votes but also must endure the area's of disagreement. I doubt neither party will walk away from his speech without feeling both agreement and disagreement with his words.
In terms of votes (lets face it that is what our system is all about getting the votes by one means or another)
the Pope has more votes in the undecided area than did the Israel Prime minister. The Pope does not "Fit" into either party and in fact has made even the Catholic Church uncomfortable in some of his stances.
Who has more influence on Congress the Israeli PM or the China leader or the Pope. I doubt none of them will bring a "switch" or get the vote out but my bet is that the Pope will be harder to deal with to "spin" to the voters. He raises the bar for both parties and frankly neither has any desire to reach his bar as American politics is far too dirty and corrupted to rise to his level.
daniel look at all tanker stock today rates are up for them all and NAT will benefit the most by the HUGE jump in Suez but what are they doing today? The whole market is nervous and acting like a bear and have you heard the talk of the shut down? Not to mention the 4th blood moon and what happens when it happens on Sept 28. It is always harder for a stock to run up against the bear flow downward. Fed interest rate at most .25 is being blown way out of reality but anything gives the hedge funds and traders a chance to "play" the market. Looking at FRO today as two weeks ago and the rates today as two weeks ago is the correct way to be looking. If rates stay high some form of dividend will be paid. If you think rates are pretty "safe" then so is an investment in FRO old or new. The unknown figures of the merger is having an effect as well on fund mangers and without a dividend the stock can not be put into a income fund.
