Same thing ww1 and ww2. US was forced to reevaluate the pillaging as Hitler deemed it unfair that certain peoples held most of the world wealth. I don't condone what Hitler did but understand the ramifications of wealth held by only the most powerful few. He who has the money makes the rules.
Anyone else want to tell our CEO at GE that we the shareholders want to get our shares in the IPO stock as shares, not a distribution? As shareholders we should be able to get first IPO shares not compete with everyone else. As shareholders we own the company we should have our say.
Hey who uses $500- $700 a month in health insurance? Ya really? I personally did the census in businesses and many didn't use their insurance at all. There were some who had cancer or long term illness who used it a lot but to the extent of say $72,000 a month for 100 employees paying into a plan? What you pay for in your premium is the nice shiny new buildings the insurance companies work in . Their health insurance costs, labor and of course the Millions the CEOs make on your health insurance premiums. Really non-profits just suck up all profit each year and cry poor to the american public just like our underpaid teachers who also cry poor. You can fix the insurance and school system by paying them what they are worth. Pay for performance. Educate students, no excuses. Cure illnesses and reduce costs for health care. How did farmers live to 100 yrs old, 100 years ago? They didn't go to the doctor or hospital but they survived. Are we a weaker race now? Or are we being told such fantasy so the insurance companies get richer and the average person will be poorer? All that money going to healthcare costs will not go to retirement plans. How long before that is mandatory and we are all down to a 2 child household imposed by our government intellectuals?
Obamacare screws the American people. Just goes to show what a few highly paid gov't employees who didn't do their homework could cause such a mess. High deductible plans were selling for under $300 for anyone with a HSA. Now the fools in Washington are screwing everyone with these high deductibles that only enrich the insurance companies. Top off co-insurance costs and millions who have a medical emergency will lose their homes, and life savings. There was no real understanding of what they were buying and no understanding of what insurance that could be available. Obama gave the insurance companies the right to screw the American public because he probably never bought his own health insurance in his life? These plans scare the hell out of me because they don't actually provide any insurance coverage for the high premiums. These were high deductible plans that only those with financial understanding and assets could afford and sleep well at night. Unless Washington changes these deductibles and co-insurances there is going to be a huge financial problem with these plans with-in 2 years as many will forgo them because they will find that they don't cover anything. Obama will be in the history books for the biggest blunder because of these "healthcare" plans. Most high deductible plans could be bought with a deductible under $2000, now they are so much more. Insurance companies got someone in their pocket?
The American people have been taught to be sheep. They don't think for themselves. 25 years ago teachers complained of children who would not go along with the plan, mindlessly follow authority. Remember all the drugs pumped into children so they wouldn't act like children anymore. Now we have a country full of sheep. The only value I can hold onto is that my ancestors came here to avoid the same lack of opportunity that now exists. Only difference now is that the gov't is not chopping off heads or throwing you into the dungeon they are passively letting you rot while those in charge pillage the lands.
Millions of donated funds that were ment for Sandy victims are being "given" to large non profit organizations to help those in need. The United Way is one of the organizations that is being given millions to help but remember that a large amount of funds for another disaster was kept by a local United Way who declined to tell the public how those funds were being used? Is this how you want your donations to a disaster to help? Tell your state and local representatives and tell your donation source how you want your donation used, otherwise they can do with them as they want and that means just about anything?
look at how the stocks price has been driven up? No one is paying attention.
Hey Biff, My dear expert friend. How are you doing? Well now that all the dust has settled on VC it is kinda boring here on the message board. I do have a question for you though? What happens if Visteon leaves the nasdaq and is on the Hong Kong exchange? Isn't VC an American company? Will it change its citizenship? How will that impact us shareholders now and down the line? Any thoughts? TY Taska
maybe a little more to $50, $51......couple bad words out of China will drop like a rock. I'm just waiting.
As the US did in 2007 so will the greed of China. as LVS goes higher it becomes much more volatile. Day traders dream.
Hi Greg, do you remember how much our warrants cost to buy VC shares? How do you do that?
Everyone of those bast**ds is raking in Millions. Who owns this company the stockholders or the management??
not a good entry point.........when it dropped to $48 a few weeks ago that was a good entry, but too much bad news out of China for policy change will lead to less gambling at least temporarily. PPS is not running up because of this impending news and change. Daytraders are running it up with low volume. Sit back and wait....
I see way too many dreamers......although expectations are good this quarter that LVS will show a marked increase it still does not take into account many factors such as long term growth. As China slows down and is affected by it's aggressive construction, loss of exports, lack of credit facilities etc. we will see a huge downside from China. Any increase in the PPS is just day traders luring in the dreamers. LVS will plunge as more news out of China confirms their troubles that will take years to recover. As LVS is planning on EuroVegas and those expenses going forward. LVS has become too risky with loss of income and greater expenses. I am out.
I agree, too much uncertainty to project that much increase. I think a short run to about 55 then a fall back to 52. I expect it to stay much as now until after October.
Also take into account that their strategy was put together some time ago and they bloated the staff and admin expenses by more than double. This in itself is thumbing their noses at the shareholders. I think they intend to keep it this way for as long as the money holds out?
