According to Gallup, the 112th Congress set a record for unpopularity in February, when only 10 percent of Americans said they approved of the job Congress was doing. The previous record was set in December of 2011, when only 11 percent approved of Congress. So this Congress is number one ... in being hated by their constituents.
The 112th Congress was the most polarized since the end of Reconstruction:
In 2011, congressional Republicans came closer than ever before to breaching the debt ceiling and setting off a global financial crisis. In the end, they pulled back moments before we toppled into the abyss. But by then, they had already done serious damage to the recovery.
Early in the year, the economy seemed to be gathering momentum. In February, it added 220,000 jobs. In March, it added 246,000 jobs. In April, 251,000 jobs. But as markets began to take the Republican threats on the debt ceiling more seriously, the economy sputtered. Between May and August, the nation never added more than 100,000 jobs a month. And then, in September, the month after the debt ceiling was resolved, the economy sped back up and added more than 200,000 jobs.
So, I ask you whose policies are working? Yeah... Like we need another Bush to put us into total depression!
Obama Outperforms Reagan On Jobs, Growth And Investing - Forbes Magazine... Look it up!
”President Reagan has long been considered the best modern economic President. So we compared his performance dealing with the oil-induced recession of the 1980s with that of President Obama and his performance during this ‘Great Recession.’
“As this unemployment chart shows, President Obama’s job creation kept unemployment from peaking at as high a level as President Reagan, and promoted people into the workforce faster than President Reagan.
“President Obama has achieved a 6.1% unemployment rate in his sixth year, fully one year faster than President Reagan did. At this point in his presidency, President Reagan was still struggling with 7.1% unemployment, and he did not reach into the mid-low 6% range for another full year. So, despite today’s number, the Obama administration has still done considerably better at job creating and reducing unemployment than did the Reagan administration.
GET A LIFE... and stop with all the BS on this board!
You are crazy wrong and lying!
How Much Will Tar Sands Oil Add to Global Warming?
To constrain climate change, such unconventional oil use needs to be stopped, according to scientists
By David Biello |
"Moving to tar sands, one of the dirtiest, most carbon-intensive fuels on the planet, is a step in exactly the opposite direction, indicating either that governments and Mr. Norrisishappy don't understand the situation or that they just don't give a damn."
Alberta's oil sands represent a significant tonnage of carbon. With today's technology there are roughly 170 billion barrels of oil to be recovered in the tar sands, and an additional 1.63 trillion barrels worth underground if every last bit of bitumen could be separated from sand. "The amount of CO2 locked up in Alberta tar sands is enormous," notes mechanical engineer John Abraham of the University of Saint Thomas in Minnesota, another signer of the Keystone protest letter from scientists. "If we burn all the tar sand oil, the temperature rise, just from burning that tar sand, will be half of what we've already seen"—an estimated additional nearly 0.4 degree C from Alberta alone.
As it stands, the oil sands industry has greenhouse gas emissions greater than New Zealand and Kenya—combined. If all the bitumen in those sands could be burned, another 240 billion metric tons of carbon would be added to the atmosphere and, even if just the oil sands recoverable with today's technology get burned, 22 billion metric tons of carbon would reach the sky.
Last year was quite a year for oil and gas disasters. In addition to the BP blowout, there was a leak on BP's TransAlaska pipeline, a million-gallon oil spill in Michigan, and a gas explosion that destroyed 37 homes and killed eight people in California. So it would seem like a lousy time for a Canadian company to propose building a pipeline, the Keystone XL, right through the middle of the continent!
He is not just obsessed he is delusional!
Another reason is that some oil companies need to be over $80 to make a profit. A sustained period at current levels means some will go BK or at best merge with those with deeper pockets.
The 3 thumbs down are from your multiple personalities... Get a life!
Man you troll this thread everyday... non-related to anything pertaining to Line Energy ... You sad person... Get a real life!
Lower lows each day, but it manages to end higher.
Insiders Buy High At Limelight Networks
Jun. 18, 2015 3:44 PM ET | About: Limelight Networks, Inc. (LLNW)
Company has recently been beating and raising quarterly guidance.
Executives have bought the strength in their shares.
Positive industry and fundamental trends back further gains for LLNW.
We bought into shares of Limelight Networks (NASDAQ:LLNW) in late April, just before the company its Q1 earnings. Doing so risked entering the purgatory reserved for those who purchase stocks just before earnings releases. But given the bullish insider activity and the guidance-beating trends in its Q4 financial results, we decided it was a risk worth taking.
That risk was certainly rewarded. Limelight once again beat expectations in its Q1, and raised forward-looking guidance. The stock now has the look of one that has broken out on high volume into a new uptrend. That technical trend also appears to us to be fundamentally justified-and have legs.
Limelight Networks helps companies that deliver massive quantities of digital content, to securely manage and deliver it globally and on any device. The increased volume of streaming video and live events, interactive gaming, and cloud-based everything only make Limelight's services more necessary.
After presciently buying their stock last summer and fall, seven insiders bought over $1.2 million worth of LLNW last March at an average price of $3.44 a share. Yes, we know that insiders were buying in via an incentive program that also garners them restricted shares equal to 20% of their purchase amount. But the size of the buying cluster indicated that executives are obviously bullish, and not just cheerleading on the cheap.
Six of the buyers increased their direct holdings by 8% or more. One buyer bumped his stake up by over 20%.

A combo of Level 3 Communications (LVLT +1.1%) with Limelight Networks (LLNW +0.8%) would create a strong content-delivery rival to Akamai, figures Macquarie's Kevin Smithen.Verizon had passed on buying Limelight, choosing instead to go for EdgeCast 1.5 years ago to add 6K customers to its own content-delivery business. But Akamai could see real competition from a "credible second source" of a Level 3/Limelight combo."We continue to believe that value will be created over the long term, either by organic margin expansion driven by 15% to 20% CDN industry revenue growth over the next few years, or by what we feel is a logical combination of Limelight with Level 3's CDN business," Smithen says
