Easy for you to say, pigs don't sweat much.
Don't think so. Yahoo wants an affluent demographic to click advertising links and use other Yahoo services. Finance boards can deliver that demographic. Political boards don't. That is why Yahoo deleted the politics boards long ago.
Why are you so eager to transform this board into a politics board?
Funny Hobomtsz. I earlier gave you a thumbs up to counter the joker who gave you the thumbs down.
Docent, I have seen nothing to suggest that Yahoo has immediate plans to eliminate financial boards but it wouldn't surprise me. Yahoo earnings were not great so changes are coming. If the finance boards continue to deteriorate, then management may decide to cut them.
Like you, I have been guilty of political discussion. I have always felt that a certain amount of political discussion is fine, but we get carried away with the attacks. I'll agree to refrain from the foolishness for a while and see how it goes. I'm skeptical that it will work but we should give it a try.
As you said below, Corning is interesting again.
libtardbarry is yet another Franz alias. Franz is a racist coward who lives on government hand outs. He wastes his days posting moronic insults on stock boards.
Read an interesting debate about this lately. Is it better to inform Fox fans that they are being misled or is it better to leave them in ignorance.
Historical fact that Klansmen became Republicans after the Southern Strategy. Then they took over the tea party wing. Now they post messages on internet boards to promote their racist agenda.
Obama's speech was a good one. People are tired of Republican obstructionists. The speech signals that Obama intends to use more Executive Orders to bypass them.
Republican obstructionists will cry foul but their cries will be empty. Obama has issued far few executive orders than Bush or Clinton.
Hahahahaha, CL has fired up at least six aliases. That boy is frantic to find an online pal to comfort him during the SOTU. I imagine a racist loser like you feels equally dejected.
President Barack Hussein Obama will deliver his State of the Union Address this evening. Not to be usurped by the duly elected President of the United States, Republican blowhards and teabigots have taken to stock boards in a frantic attempt to preempt the president.
The GOP's will try extra hard to deliver a response this year. They will offer not one, not two but three responses.
Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers will deliver the official GOP response. A team of medical techs will be on hand to ensure that she is adequately hydrated.
Sen. Mike Lee (Utah) will give the teabigot response. Can he do better than Rand Paul's forgettable 2013 teabigot response?.
Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), will deliver his "please stop ignoring me" response. Everyone will ignore it.
You need to direct your ire at it the real trouble makers instead of interrupting good people. Mikeinwestac,uses his many aliases to add an average of ten worthless OT posts per day. Pack_en averages more but he's a troll.
Thank you in advance for putting things in perspective.
Glad to hear that you are well. We too are well.
Tough week in the market and maybe this is the promised correction. Hard to know.
Steamboat Springs is great place. A couple of years ago we rode our motorcycles through the spectacular Colorado Rockies and spent a few hours there. It was a good day. Never did have the opportunity to ski there though.
Stay warm, stay safe, and stay cheerful.
As opposed to the old system where people found out that their insurance was junk after they got sick. Deductibles are clearly laid out on the exchange. People cant be denied treatment for pre-existing conditions. People can't be hit with lifetime caps that lead them to bankruptcy.
Some people wanted the ACA to fail. They are in denial of its success.
Hello Benny (AKA Vinnie). I am Vinnie (AKA Vinnie). I agree with Docent (AKA vVnnie). Good post.
You/we/I know that ACA success is bad for Republicans. They wanted to fight the 2014 mid-terms on an ACA failure narrative but the numbers show ACA successes. Republicans said that young folks wouldn't sign up and they signed up. They said that doctors would refuse to accept ACA patients and doctors accepted them. They said that people would lose their insurance and people found better insurance.
You helped that co-worker. This story, and millions like it, seem to be happening across the country. Republican attempts to spin the ACA as a failure will backfire.
TCK is off topic for the GLW board - this board is for politics and occasional talk about glass. However, I have followed TCK for years so will chime in,
The company has a spotty history. Beats often but can miss by a substantial amount. Was trading around 34-36 at the start of the year and is now down to 24. Trailing P/E around 16. Divi around 3.5%. It was recently named to the global 100 most sustainable corps. Have no idea of the relevance of it.
I do not hold TCK. They are on another acquisition binge. They almost went under in 2008 when they acquired Fording with debt. They claim to have learned from past mistakes and they are picking up assets at good prices but they still issue debt. 2019 notes are at 3%. 2042 notes are at 5%.
Probably not a mistake to buy TCK but I am not there yet.
Shame on barrythelibtard. Always cheering when there is bad economic news or the markets decline. Why does he hate America?
Some one close too me took in a Gutamalan girlfriend with three children. All good kids. He trained them to hopscotch. They aren't comfortable around me because they know how I feel about hopscotch, especially non citizen hopscotch. When the streets get tough, me and my septuagenarian buddies are gonna put an end to hopscotch.
You are right Docent, Boxhead is almost too easy. His rants are so bizarre that you start to wonder if the ya re intended as parody.
A bit over the top maybe, but the ACA will be considered a positive step for this country. Even Republicans know that it is quickly approaching the point at which it will be politically impossible to reverse.
Know what they have in common? Michelle will be living in a nice house on Pennsylvania Ave for the next three years. Hillary will get the eight years after that.
