  1. Did you have to use that 4 letter word??? LOL B/A
  2. Farming is a great example. Honestly, do you see young Americans from age 15 to 30 working as hard? I just don't see it. When I've hired companies for construction, landscaping or whatever, the immigrants (Legal or illegal, I don't know which the companies hire ) work much harder than the Millenniums. B/A
  3. I have a friend from Panama. He and his wife are both legal immigrants and both work for a company called Shaw Industries in Dalton, GA., a small town of less than 100,000 people. You may of heard of Shaw Industries, they are the largest flooring manufacturer in America. The funny thing is, both Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush visited Bob Shaw the owner when they were running for president. Why would presidential candidates make a stop in such a small town? That's easy they were looking for contributions. And they got them on a large scale. So my friends who work there at Shaw Industries get very disgusted by the illegals. You see, they came here legally, have paid their dues and are living the American dream. Here is what makes them angry. Not the illegals, but the owners of Shaw. You see, they hire many illegals to work cheap and without benefits. In the many factories they own there is a big red light and loud siren. These warning devices go off every couple of months and the illegals all scramble out of sight as they have been instructed to do by management. Then about 15 minutes later the INS shows up and does their routine inspection. They find no illegals and go on their way. As my friend put it to me, the owners get a call before the inspectors arrive and avoid getting caught using illegals and avoid paying the fines. So like it or not, Shabs is correct that the problem does not lie with the illegals, but with the companies who hire them. Pretty simple. The illegals would not come if they were not hired. So call your Senator and Congressman and remind them that they are in charge and they need to cut off the head of the immigration beast and go after those who provide the jobs. Let me know what they tell you... B/A
  4. And so it begins... In 6 months people will be hearing how their retirement just got wiped out and wonder where all the money went... It is a cycle. Wash, Rinse, Repeat B/A
  5. The Fed is a private bank owned by the Rothschild's... They only have one purpose... to make money. At anyone's expense. They play a game. They buy everything low after a crash then cash out at the next peak. They will again drive the market up and will wait until the average guy invests their life savings via 401K, IRAs, etc.. Then they will crash the markets by cashing out causing another massive sell-off. Then they will take their profits and buy everything cheap again, then drive the markets back up... Well you get the picture. Wash, Rinse, Repeat. These people have been controlling the markets with this simple game for a long time. They take advantage of people's greed. As professional banker/traders they understand when people see huge gains like they have seen recently, the average person (retail investor) gets greedy and thinks it will keep going up. Average investors don't understand, professionals see gains like 30 or 40% and take the money, while the uneducated and greedy think gains will go to 100% or even more. They (The Rothschilds, Illuminati) or whatever else you want to call them start selling early, then the investment companies see this and start selling too. Soon things start crashing and average people panic and sell. Sometimes they sell for less then they paid. When everyone is bummed out and afraid of the market, they (the masters of the game) come back in and buy everything cheap... It was a Rothschild who coined the phase "buy when there is blood in the streets". http://www.investopedia.com/articles/financial-theory/08/contrarian-investing.asp?lgl=v-table B/A

  9. Great tune.. Thanks
  10. Stocks are selling off, Dow down 350 Myles Udland Yahoo Finance May 17, 2017 Stocks were selling off on Wednesday after hitting record highs earlier in the week. Just after 2:45 pm ET on Wednesday, the Dow was down about 250 points, or 1.7%. The S&P 500 was down 40 points, or 1.7%, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq was off 146 points, or 2.3%. Gold prices were up about 1.8% to around $1,258 an ounce, while crude oil prices were up about 1% to trade just above $49 a barrel. Treasuries were also rallying, with the 10-year yield falling to 2.26% and the two-year moving to 1.26%. Treasury prices rise as yields fall. Stocks are selling off on Wednesday. (Source: Yahoo Finance) More Wednesday’s drop in markets comes after Tuesday evening saw the second damaging story for President Donald Trump in as many days. The New York Times reported Tuesday evening that Trump asked former FBI director James Comey to to end an inquiry into ties former national security advisor Michael Flynn had to Russia. And this report came just a day after The Washington Post reported Trump revealed “highly classified” information to Russia’s foreign minister. And as Bespoke Investment Group pointed out in an email early Wednesday, the market reacting negatively to Trump-related headlines is a definite change in character from what we’ve become accustomed to in recent months. After the market’s violent election night reaction, stocks have more or less moved up and to the right unabated, with the political chaos roiling Washington, D.C. seeming to have little impact on financial markets. Stocks, as we noted above, are near record highs and volatility in the market has collapsed. But this does not mean that the oft-mentioned political risk is completely gone from markets. As Bespoke notes, if and when political headlines begin to move markets in earnest it will happen quickly. On Tuesday, Yahoo Finance’s Sam Ro highlighted commentary from Greg Valliere, chief global strategist at Horizon Investments, who said that “nothing” is likely to derail markets. “North Korea is getting closer to having an ICBM that could get close to Hawaii, with a scary payload; a U.S. pre­emptive strike is still on the table. And cybersecurity finally has emerged as serious threat,” Valliere wrote. “Markets will have to worry about these issues, but they won’t significantly affect interest rates or earnings.” And while this may be true, another thing worth keeping in mind is that while stocks have enjoyed a strong run over the last six months, most every year features a decline of 5% or more in the stock market. No matter the catalyst, then, investors ought to always be ready for a big drop in the stock market.
