at $32 and $28? Little wonder why the average joe investor loses money in the markets. You never buy a stock that's headed to zero.
They're now talking about limiting the GOP debates to 12 people which means some of the hopefuls would be barred from the debates. Even with 12, that only leaves between 3 and 4 minutes for each candidate to talk. How much could you possibly learn from each candidate in that short of a time frame? Come to think of it, 3 or 4 minutes might be too much. You could learn everything that those clowns know in about 20 seconds. This is going to be a laugh riot. I can't wait. I've got my popcorn ready along with my body massager to use on my sides when they start hurting from laughing so hard.
Lesson to be learned for investors. Never invest in a dying company. Trying to convince oneself that WMT has a future because Cooter, Cletus, Eunice, Ruth Ann, Eleanor, Vickie Sue, Billy Bob, Sally Ann and Sandra Sue from your trailer park all shop at WMT is a sure way to poverty.
Here they are stuck with a room full of face masks, gas masks and medical coveralls after their republican puppet masters scared them into thinking that ebola was coming to get them unless they take drastic measure because President Obama wasn't going to protect them. Not a peep about ebola anymore. I guess there are no Mexican immigrants crossing the border into the country anymore either because the Mexican immigrants coming into the country were bringing the ebola virus in with them. Amazing how they can manipulate the sheep with the dumbest stuff that anyone ever heard but the sheep eat it up like its the gospel. LOL
I read that article. It talks about how traditional grocery stores are now eating WMTs lunch when it comes to growth in sales and how customers like being able to get good prices at the traditional stores and how its a better shopping experience.
based on how much money they make after leaving office. They say the bill doesn't target anyone. LAUGH LAUGH. They're targeting Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama when he leaves office because these are the smart presidents that people want to pay for speaking engagements and write books that people want to read. Nobody wants to hear Bush speak, either one of them, much less pay them anything to speak.
"The House bill would set presidential pensions at $200,000 a year, nearly the same as the current amount, with an additional $200,000 set aside for office space and other expenses. The bill would reduce expense payments by $1 for every dollar above $400,000 earned by a former president.
Under the legislation, ex-presidents who earn more than $600,000 a year would not receive federal funds for office expenses or travel. Presidential pensions would not be affected by the amount of income earned.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Oversight panel and a co-sponsor of the bill, said it was not aimed at anyone, but was a simple matter of fairness."
Now don't you just love that last paragraph? Republicans are concerned about FAIRNESS. LOL
The Walton's today are considered to be #$%$ Royalty'. Adored by dim-bulb southerners and laughed at by the rest of the country.
Don't the republicans remember that the last time they went on a bash Hillary campaign, they ended up with what they call a black Kenyan Muslim as president. To say republicans are slow learners is an insult to slow learners.
The light bulbs of these morons finally turns on when its too late and the republicans have destroyed their minds and lives. Republican supporters have to be the dumbest creatures walking this earth and there are others who are quite dumb, so that's saying something.
I have been watching Letterman lately though as the who's who of the greats have been making their appearances to wish him well on their last visit. I liked it a couple weeks ago when President Obama was on and told Dave that the two of them could play dominoes together. That brought to mind that he could also brush up on his shuffleboard and join Pops Buffett and Carl Icahn at the Holiday Shores Retirement Village. I also enjoyed Bob Dylan last night. What a great talent he is and unequaled in modern day songwriting.
Congrats on a long great career. I've never been a big fan of his show but always respected him. I think Steven Colbert, his replacement, is going to be one of the all time greats and right up there with Johnny Carson as the best late night show host of all time. Jimmy Fallon is talented and seems to be quite a nice guy but I never did think he was a good pick for a late night show host. He just doesn't have the right personality for that type job, in my opinion. Anyway, when Colbert takes over, he's going to blow everybody away in the ratings. I had never thought about him in that position but as soon as I heard CBS announce he was the one to replace Letterman, I said to myself, this is a genius choice.
Waiting for the comments that Target and WMT are not in the same type business and not competitors. Hey, they've tried that one before and when you're desperate, you will say anything, no matter how stupid. Just like they think Costco and Sam's can't be compared. They are right in one way, WMT and Target and Costco and Sam's cannot be compared. Costco and Target carry quality merchandise at a good price and WMT and Sam's carry overpriced junk. So in that way, you really can't compare them. I feel sorry for the people that have to or are too dumb to know better and shop at WMT and or Sam's.
Next month, the Supreme Court will rule on King v. Burwell. If all five Republican appointees support the plaintiffs (there’s no chance any of the Democrat-appointed justices will take the lawsuit seriously), some 7 million Americans will quickly lose their insurance. The prospect that this will occur has induced a wave of panic — not among the customers at risk of losing their insurance, who seem largely unaware, nor even among Obamacare’s Democratic supporters, but among Republicans. The chaos their lawsuit would unleash might blow back in a way few Republicans had considered until recently, and now, on the eve of a possible triumph, they find themselves scrambling to contain the damage. It is dawning on the Grand Old Party that snatching health insurance away from millions of helpless victims is not quite as rewarding as expected.
Its hoped that the memorial can be unveiled on what would have been Michael Brown's 19th birthday before his heinous murder. Nice to see some honest adults taking control in Ferguson thanks to the last election. I guess we could call Michael Brown the Emmett Till of Missouri.
They also said $30 was a good price to get back into WorldCom WCOM, then they said the same thing at 20, 15, 12, 8, 5, and than it went to zero. Never play with a disaster.
You may laugh at the story but it truly did make me cry. Think about the reality of what could happen. When WMT ends up closing and the stock end up being worthless, how are the Walton's going to be able to get by? After all, they have no skills nor any abilities to make any money on their own. Sure, some may think they have it made but when you acquire no skills and become a spoiled member of society and come to expect everyone else to provide for you without earning any of it, its a shock when you have to face life's realites. Sure, they could try to make some by continuing to steal from people but lets face it, they'd be out in the real world on their own and they wouldn't last a day if they tried to steal from everyday people without the protections they're now afforded. At best, they'd be beat to a pulp by people who don't like others stealing from them. Living your entire life on welfare and than having to suddenly fend for yourself if something many can't handle.
Rauner wants to cut cut cut. Oh, by the way, he wants to spend 8 million dollars sprucing up the governors mansion in Illinois. Another republican do as I say, not as I do joke. He also gave his staff (buddies) huge raises over what the staff for former Governor Pat Quinn was making and in some cases the increases amounted to over 100%, for the very same positions. Of course, he doesn't want the very wealthy in Illinois to pay higher taxes to fix up his home (governors mansion in Illinois) and instead has asked school children across the state to start a penny drive and the school children across the state are asking to bring in their change to donate to fix up the governors mansion. After all, shouldn't poor school children pay to fix it up instead of him having to spend some of his billion dollars so the mansion will meet his standards to live in?
I'm not a crier but this made my eyes well up. How about passing the collection basket? LOL
Sam Walton's Heirs Lose Almost $6 Billion in One Day

Four Wal-Mart heirs shed $5.7 billion from their collective net worth yesterday after the world's largest retailer posted first-quarter earnings that missed analysts’ estimates. The Bentonville, Arkansas-based company's U.S. sales grew more slowly than projected and currency fluctuations ate into profit.
