glorified TA ? Seems like you like to spin things also...mr moe. I do get tired of having to look stuff up all the time....you can depend on everyone being a spin doctor...even those critiquing others of the same.
"Q: Was Barack Obama really a constitutional law professor?
A: His formal title was "senior lecturer," but the University of Chicago Law School says he "served as a professor" and was "regarded as" a professor.
When I was in law school, I addressed all of my course instructors as "professors," regardless of their rank or formal position in the school academic hierarchy (tenured professor, assistant professor, adjunct professor, lecturer, etc.). Was Obama exaggerating or factually wrong in referring to himself as a "constitutional law professor" at the University of Chicago Law School even though his official title was lecturer?
Sen. Obama, who has taught courses in constitutional law at the University of Chicago, has regularly referred to himself as "a constitutional law professor," most famously at a March 30, 2007, fundraiser when he said, "I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president I actually respect the Constitution." A spokesman for the Republican National Committee immediately took exception to Obama’s remarks, pointing out that Obama’s title at the University of Chicago was "senior lecturer" and not "professor."
Recently, Hillary Clinton’s campaign has picked up on this charge. In a March 27 conference call with reporters, Clinton spokesman Phil Singer claimed:
Singer (March 27): Sen. Obama has often referred to himself as “a constitutional law professor” out on the campaign trail. He never held any such title. And I think anyone, if you ask anyone in academia the distinction between a professor who has tenure and an instructor that does not, you’ll find that there is … you’ll get quite an emotional response.
The campaign also sent out an e-mail quoting an Aug. 8, 2004, column in the Chicago Sun-Times that criticized Obama for calling himself a professor when, in fact, the University of Chicago faculty page listed him as “a senior lecturer (now on leave)."
because they rely on people being interested in what they report....you didn't know how news reporting works ? When you go to your favorite news source..they also cater to your interests in what they report.
don't take it so personal.
like your name...crabby and just proud of it.
yep, still law of the land...goes with the position I guess, next guy or gal can change it, and the band plays on.
short term, I think there will be another PM correction (not big)...but I sold some PAAS and Pslv today.
Sure hope there is not another housing correction...not sure it would be a correction in most markets, but more like a continuation.
just noting the correlation I see between strong christian beliefs and the abortion is murder perspecive.
Sure he does have that right. Interestingly, he is also an american indian (Lumbee), and from the southern bible belt. got it all going on :)
but good pushback....not sure why I felt compelled to respond like that.
yes, that is what they objected too. I don't have a problem with our tax dollars going to planned parenthood...correct me if I am wrong, but my single person tax dollars go to all kinds of things I don't necessarily support. I think all tax exemptions for religious groups, and support the have as many kids as you can (mostly christian) parents...should be removed. How about the big christian family folks pick up their own tab, or use their tax exempt church funds to man up for the cost ?
that is what I am talking about
jesus make you post that ?
how come, so many far rights tend to be religious ?...and show their christian beliefs by ragging on those with opposing views.
I have a co worker that is a one issue voter..and that is his perspective too (same as mr fair)...he also believes the world is only 5000 years old, and any evidence to the contrary is here to test our beliefs.
I think many with views like mr fair also believe in what my coworker does. Tough topic though...abortions. I expect Mr Hobby lobby will declare next that premature withdrawal is in essence...murder
if they financial force their decisons on employees...I would say yes to your question.
If a person does not believe in religions groups being tax exempt, and that passing on child support obligations to local, state and federal tax payers...should they be required to support it ? good for the goose, good for the gander ?
like it or not commrade..ths is the US, it';s how we roll.
don't forget some global pandemic too...lots of opportunities to be had !
maybe enough citizen stress concerning gmo products....could drive investments in organic industires, maybe increase doctor visits, quackery sales....
lots of possiblities based to consider
tired old analysis...imo. That theory could be applied to all commodities, why single out silver ?
At a practical level, I would answer this has been tried before (Hunt bros)....and at a point the market would react by traders going short, pushing more and more risk into the effort to "corner the market". I will also note that PM investors seem incessed about the "bankers" manipulating the market, but have no qualms about it being done if they could benefit.
froma science perspective....silver is never gone forever..the amount of silver on the globe is set quantity...it was mined, it is still around...it didn't go into space...whether it is impractical to recover is one thing, but it is not "gone forever".
somewhat random comments...I have some PSLV, and a miner in my investments, but think investment diversification is the best wealth retention approach, not buying metals.
the gpd decline was -.9 %, that -2.9 % if you assume it will continue at the same rate for the year. Just saying, ...not good performance...but it was not a 2.9 drop for the quarter, which seems to be what lots of people post.
not sure I would call it a dollar plunge..seems like it is trading about mid range based on the last six months...but near the low end of the range for the last year.
sadly, the squeezed consumers will still pay for smart phones, high speed internet and cars for kids, and cable TV. Somehow, I think that cost, which was not present two decades ago...has some impact in the loss of wealth for the middle class. I see phones, internet and cable being several hundred per month (or more) for the middle class...you do the math...that is probably almost a retirement IRA over a lifetime.
I pay 400 per month (excluding cars for kids)..for smart phones and entertainment...for two people. Wacky world !
why ? consumer preference is the obvious answer. Do you buy the best deal clothes, best deal car, best dealt home, best deal toaster? On one hand getting the best deal for comparable products makes perfect sense. On the other dedicaing time to find, and go to several places to get the best prices....that all has a cost also. The reason I like wf, is I get the biggest selection of high quality foods in one place. I also don't tend to buy veggies there.
if I can save 10 % on my food purchases...and have to spend another 2 hours per week communting to piece together the lowest price...not worth it to me.
me too. Meet you on the fantasypolician web site later and we can compare our fav's.
