When will Sharpton and Jackson work on solving the problems ailing the black community?
Presumably it is more THEIR responsibility to do so than it is the responsibility of either political party.
You're misinformed, Lake.
Canadian companies cannot impose eminent domain on US land.
Even US companies cannot impose eminent domain on US land.
You're confusing Nordea's *November* FRO rating with the one that several sites have posted within the past few days.
Here's the report:
Nordea Equity Research cut shares of Frontline (NYSE:FRO) from a hold rating to a sell rating in a research note issued to investors on Wednesday. The firm currently has $1.58 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $1.32.
Good idea. Consider yourself iggy'ed.
No, their tax rate should go UP... just like everyone else's.
Why is it so difficult for everyone, both on the left and the right, to comprehend the reality that virtually no one in this country is paying enough to fund the government services they demand?
I've never been able to figure out who was dumber, guys like Rove and Limbaugh for assuming they represent conservatives, or libs for actually BELIEVING what those clowns claim for themselves.
I've learned more about what Rove and Limbaugh advocate from apoplectic, hyperventilating libs than from those guys themselves (whom I never listed to because they represent political THEATER).
But if it suits your purpose to THINK they're normative for the "right", don't let someone who is actually ON the right dissuade your from your delusion.
Your message was about saving Federal expense on healthcare. We know that a, if not the, majority of healthcare dollars are spent in / on the last years of life.
So, if the rationale for terminating a young life is to save on federal healthcare costs, why should we not also terminate an old life if the continuation of that life would only result in significant healthcare costs to the Federal government?
If Federal dollars are to be spent in an effort to preclude medicaid expenditures on infants, it would be better that those dollars be spent on sterilization rather than abortion; preventing a conception is better than terminating a life..
Nope. You mistakenly assume that a couple of prolific message board posters represent the whole of the conservative wing of US politics.
Well, golly, then. Why don't we just euthanize all old people as that would save Medicare oodles of money?
Who said that? Some of us on the "right" always thought it was Obama's election to lose. Romney might have been surprised at the outcome, but many of us "conservatives" were not.
It's.. difficult... to compete with a politician whose intent is to take money from his opponents and giving it to his own supporters. It was unlikely that Romney could compete with that given that his messages was essentially that everyone needs to "tighten their belts" a bit for the US to prosper.
Tonight we'll hear more of Robin Hood politics. Instead of the country's leader admonishing the populace to limit their expenditures their income (or less), he'll advance the argument that all will be well if we confiscate more wealth from those who have and distribute same to those who refuse to live within their means.
Not if those new coal plants REPLACE existing plants.
YoY, Geman coal use declined slightly in 2014, even WITH those 6 new coal plants. Lower overall electricity consumption is part of the reason.
But I'd bet a beer that Germany, like the US, is closing older less efficient coal plants as newer, cleaner units come on line.
They should get some reduction in CO2 generation if the new plants are replacing traditional fired boilers and scrubbers, with combined-cycle coal gassification units.
Cut all the loopholes.
There is no reason why my effective tax rate should be less than 5%.
There is no reason why 45% to 50% of wage earners have an effective tax rate of 0%.
Given the instability of gas supplies from Russia, Ukraine, et. al. it is NOT a surprise that Germany is building new coal fired power plants.
The forecasts that I've seen over the past year or so suggest that German coal use will be flat until 2020 or so after which time it will begin to decrease. My beer bet is that the new plants will end up replacing older plants that will be taken off line.
Essentially they are capitulating on reducing coal use. Where the US has been able to reduce CO2 emissions by replacing coal with gas, Germany is, by default - because of the political instability in Russia / Ukraine et. al, reducing emissions by replacing nuclear and gas with renewable.
Sorry Lake, but... Coal is still king in Germany
2014 German Power Production by fuel
Renewable sources contributed 25.8% up from 24.1% in 2013. Solar improved from 4.9% in 2013.
Use of lIgnite, the particularly dirty brown coal, increased slightly: 25.6% in 2014 vs. 25.4% in 2013.
Bad idea. The middle pays far too little in taxes as it is.
Tax rates need to go up for all income levels.
Per the 20F, which was released in early 2014 and does not reflect lease cancellations, that occurred during 2014 etc., FRO's fleet was:
Class Owned SFL 3rd Party Comm mgt Total
VLCC 6 15 2 6 29
Suzie 5 5 2 6 18
Totals 11 20 4 12 47
The terms "owned", "SFL", "3rd Party", and "commercial Manage" are what appears in the 20-F, they are not an interpretation from footnotes, etc. Meaning, the above is FRO's own classification of its fleet ownership.
Yes, they should be making money on the charter-in fleet.
The re-negotiated charter arrangement with SFL granted to SFL 100% of vessel earnings above the renegotiated charter up to the amount of the original charter rate. IIRC, this arrangement expires at the end of 2015. Even with that arrangement, FRO should be making money on these boats.
Atheism is just as much a religion to its devout as any mono or poly theistic 'ism is to its devout, just minus the deity figure(s).
