chairmanbarack, you hit it right on the head: Buffett is pulling the strings in this situation so he can make billions from his railroad holdings. The old mercenary never fooled me, he's not a nice old man like he tries portray himself, but a money hungry cutthroat cad.
I have been holding since '07 and remember those precarious days, but held on because something was telling me it would sail under its own. Somehow I knew it would not go BK, and would do it w/o TARP or a merger. I still enjoy the buyout posts, though. Who's the next one to buy them out, Wendy's? Just kidding. Life is good.
Good to see there's some intelligent life left on this board. I glanced at it today for the first time in two weeks and saw a post. I usually get a blank page because I have all the yo-yos, who I think are the same person, on ignore.
They will tell you that it would've been 25 inches if it were not for global warming. They always come up with an answer.
I have often wondered what happened to Moony. I guess he burned himself out with all his predictions, which never came about when he was here.
Good thing we have the 10 commandments, otherwise this would be a rotten world with wars hunger,hatred, and who knows what else.
Bring on the SUB's and the pickup trucks. Gas guzzlers welcome, gas is cheap. Go ahead make me feel like a fool for adding to my DO holdings.
Yes, the idiot from Crawford is gone, but some of his stench still lingers on. Thank you President Obama for the great job you've done in spite of the repubs' continuous obstructions.
And you and I pay for it with our tax money , which goes there in the form of foreign aid.
President Obama has fixed most of the damage. Other parts of the damage done by bush will take years to fix, if they can be fixed..
crk, thanks for the advice. You have what it takes to weather a storm like this. The special dividend was just that: "We give it to you if we have it, but when times are bad, like now, you don't get it." I am adding every chance I get because oil will not be replaced as a fuel for a long time to come and demand will eventually rise use up the surplus, or glut. When that happens we'll be moving up again. JMHO.
They will have to implement a system where only one user id from each computer will be allowed to be used on each message board. Can this be done? I hope it can.
Perhaps there was a problem and the pilots could not find their birth certificates?
And all based on mythology: The creator,heaven, hell, etc., of which there's not a single shred of evidence. It has all been invented by human minds and adhered to by weak minds.
Beaver, I am sorry you got offended. I was going top send you some of my old ones.. Maybe you have some snap-on tools to attach to them.
Thanks for the advice. I don't read what he has to say. As soon as I see his name I know it's nothing intelligent or important and skip it.
