CNBC sure does pick on Ackman....they've driven his reputation right into the ground.
So one-sided, it makes Michael Moore look like Mr. Objectivity......
More like...Teachers (being the perpetually lazy people that they are....otherwise they wouldn't have chosen teaching to begin with) have found a terrific excuse to cancel another field trip so they can remain in the teaching lounge doing nothing. I "object" to the treatment of the whales, when in reality what they object to is WORK.
Some of the video displayed at the parks and shows is obvious "property of Sea World" pilfered by their employees over the years. Used without permission, things could get very dicey for the people behind Blackfish....
Thanks Blackfish producers...it was very eye-opening.....maybe you'll get nominated for a Woody at the AVN awards show in Vegas....
The female monkey creatures gather up my sperm and I enjoy it alot. When they don't do it, I try to tell the trainer by grabbbing their arms and feet. Sometimes they stop living, oh well that's showbiz..
But US Air is up for it, now to fire most of those American slackmos.......
The meat in the wraps is so old, it might've been cooked THE PREVIOUS DAY.
You have got to admire the franchise's cleverness. They don't say No to the coupon, they just make the "experience" of using coupons similar to being examined by the Border Guard of a Police State. Customers think-twice about using coupons at THEIR store. So I go to another McDonald's that gladly accepts the coupons as a cost of doing business, I drive more so the Franchisee can keep his precious money....thanks Ronald McDonald, you 've done it again.
Staff at my McDonalds will not honor ANY coupon without a manager looking it over first. They always nod OK. What they're trying to do is make it a spectacle when someone uses a coupon. Make the customer feel like a criminal by having the manager look over the coupon like he's reviewing a Passport or something. Hey Donald-heads, if your franchisees don't like the coupons, get with the program and just don't issue them.
What kind of cars are you building? America loved Paul Walker and now American hates you and every single one of your exploding products.
CDMA....friendly to both dissidents and terrorists alike.
China sees the truth of things. They see a company that is clearly parasitical in nature. Qualcomm takes profit with none of the associated risks. Reminds of Shark Tank, where the clever sharks try pulling a "Qualcomm", "I'll give you the money you're asking for, just give me 4% of sales in perpetuity". One of CDMA's selling points is how "secure" it is...really difficult to eavesdrop on conversations. For a totalitarian regime, that would be a very bad thing, the Chinese Secret Police need the ability to monitor calls. They are probably thinking about banning CDMA from their entire country....I know I would.
Why the big delay?, the White House Turkey gets his pardon sooner than I get my sentencing hearing
The crisis is also known in Spanish as el error de diciembre—The December Mistake—a term coined by outgoing president Carlos Salinas de Gortari in reference to his successor Ernesto Zedillo's sudden reversal of the former administration's policy of tight currency controls. While most analysts agree that devaluation was necessary for economic reasons,[who?] Salinas supporters argue that the process was mishandled at the political level.
The root causes of the crisis are usually attributed to Salinas de Gortari's policy decisions while in office, which ultimately strained the nation's finances. As in prior election cycles, a pre-election disposition to stimulate the economy, temporarily and unsustainably, led to post-election economic instability. There were concerns about the level and quality of credit extended by banks during the preceding low-interest rate period, as well as the standards for extending credit.
The country's risk premium was affected by an armed rebellion in Chiapas, causing investors to be wary of investing their money in an unstable region. The Mexican government's finances and cash availability were further hampered by two decades of increasing spending, a period of hyperinflation from 1985 to 1993, debt loads, and low oil prices. Its ability to absorb shocks was hampered by its commitments to finance past spending.
Mexico did the same thing a dozen or so years ago. What stocks perform best in a currency reset or devaluation?
