    I know exactly why your laughter is so uncontrolled. Too much of that Obama Kool-Aid, you are close to an overdose.

    Your approve of an $18 trillion national debt
    You agree there is not a smidgen of corruption as Lerner took the fifth
    You find the Bergdahl (deserter) swap for key terrorists wise
    Billions wasted on green project and gas at the pump is a bit over $2 - that OK by you
    ISIS is JV by you as well
    Ambassador Christopher Stevens, dead and his requests for increased security ignored
    Average family income down since he took office
    Blaming Republicans as blockers to bills but over 300 were sent to the Senate & Reid blocked them
    Rebekah presented as an average American but is a Democratic campaign worker
    If you like you plan, your doctor, you can keep them NOT TRUE
    Gruber knowingly misrepresented the ACA - he had people like YOU in mind

    IMO Obama may be the most dishonest president since Nixon. Trying to pass off a party operative as a regular person, it's a disgrace to the office.

  • He is a great speaker one with charisma that easily matches that of Bill Clinton. factcheck website goes into the SOTUS. ◾The president boasted that the U.S. has gained 11 million private sector jobs in five years. Yes, but that ignores his first 13 months in office and a net loss of public sector jobs. Total employment growth during his time in office is about 6.4 million. And as I have noticed, many of those out of college are forced to accept jobs far below their educational ability. There is much more to be found at factcheck. Also heck the website advisorperspectives, their headline of 12/24/14
    Real Median Household Income Rose 0.57% in November
    In real dollar terms, the median annual income is 6.3% lower ($3,651) than its interim high in January 2008 but off its low in August 2011. My overall assessment of our president, incompetent and distorts the truth. Even tried to distance himself from Gruber. Yes, you can be elected president. You need no real world business experience, you can be deceptive but be sure you are a superb public speaker with extraordinary charisma.

    I won't judge those that voted him in for another 4. There are guilt-ridden whites, you know with a past of being prejudiced, now seeking a sort of moral redemption. Another segment would vote for him no matter how big the blunders. I left out ISIS is JV. Another Obama ooopsie.

    I warned people prior to the president winning a second term. The man is in way over his head, he's a ideologue that leans toward socialism. He takes little interest in extracting truth out of highly controversial situations, I. e., fast & furious, IRS Lerner taking the firth, the lax security Benghazi 9/11/2012, Gruber, bloating national debt, failed green projects in the billions.
    He is divisive, the deaths of Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin, where our president revealed his own bias in his early statements after those 2 deaths. Our president's bluff called in Syria, the informant to taking out Bin Laden still jailed, the Bergdahl deal, Putin taking Crimea, the current president is an incompetent on many levels.

  • Get a clue people, bad people in every walk of life. Most cops are good people IMO. BTW, I'll never pay for a movie that has Samuel L. Jackson in it.

    Surely I am not. I was at this board before his securing a second term warning voters. The warning was ignored by too many.

    Obama has humiliated every one of us by our conspicuous absence to the protest of the murders in Paris. I understand Holder was in Paris but still a no show of support. Unbelievable!

    There has been a tremendous amount of fear peaking during the close of 2014 with tax loss selling. Greece has shown early signs of an improving economy and previous austerity measures are generally accepted. What I thought would be a quick 5 or 10% catch the bottom trade has become an investment. I will buy throughout the next 6 months to a year on dips. During 2016 I expect a double from my average cost.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    I don't get your point. Cramer has a sell rating. A default would means Cramer is right.

    mak_000 referring to me as BL suggests I am back_lava and I am not. To drive that point home, NO that is not an alias I use. Having my screen name since 1999, I am familiar with what people do using multiple names to further their agenda. Make no mistake; do not to refer to me as BL. Understand should you continue to do so, I view that as you hinting I'm dishonest. Your questions will go unanswered since offering my opinion matters little, extremely little actually. At the same time, according to the news of short thru options, Yahoo concludes the position is not a hedge. I've already given my views on that aspect.

  • towncryer911 by towncryer911 Jan 8, 2015 3:17 PM Flag

    Thank you for the kind words. My view of the CNBC segment was pure chance. I was ready for lunch, sat down, turned on CNBC and there it was. I wondered if it had been discussed here. I offered what I heard. I noticed the bearish option play at Yahoo news as well. It does strike me as odd that such a position was taken this late in the overall scenario. Wasn't the big bear giving any thought to the downside momo because of tax loss selling? Is the bear thoroughly convinced that the outcome of the election will absolutely be fulfilled to the bear's expectation? After all the margin by recent polling suggests the certainty of that has diminished, and the margin is slim anyway. And then there is George Papandreou entering the bid for reelection. The possibility exists he may win votes away from SYRIZA. Overall, at present, it's quite the convoluted mess. At the same time IMHO, remaining short isn't worth the risk. Should the debt terms be extended or SYRIZA lose, the rush to own combined with short covering, the chart will go parabolic. Therefore, the risk is large here. Along with that big risk comes the potential for an impressive upside. Honestly, I have a small long position. If I lose it all my life will go on with the smallest of speed bumps. If the news favors longs, then I treat my self to a new toy or two, or perhaps a bit of travel.

    I doubt it. However, it sounds as though you missed the CNBC report. Talking head Michelle Caruso-Cabrera said Greece and it's debtors are in talks. It appears, according to her report, that 2 tiers of debtors are in play. There may be a forgiving of debt, restructuring it to extend the duration including lowering the interest rate or some combination of the aforementioned. Importantly, it appears that a Grexit, an exit from the Euro by Greece, is less likely to happen. Maybe it will show up on Youtube.
