  • Anyone had experience with binary options? [Vanity]

    I have tried a couple of the “Can’t Lose” programs out there. To date, I have been unsuccessful, and unimpressed.
    The sales propaganda looks compelling, but the results do not mirror the hype.
    Be careful, because most tie you into one particular broker, which may, or may not be a good thing.
    If you do, use ONLY money you can afford to lose.
    If you find something that works, congratulations and be pleasantly surprised.

  • Outrage as Waco, Texas biker fight is compared to Baltimore

    All three instances had violent reactions.
    The response is the difference. In Ferguson and Baltimore, the response was confused and withheld. This allowed the situation to escalate and require National Guard. In Waco, the response was immediate and decisive eliminating the need for the National Guard.
    Look at the press conferences after the fact.
    In Ferguson and baltimore, you had all of the media sucking political whores trying to get microphone time, and said nothing. In Waco, one spokesman who was direct, to the point and answered most all questions in his original release.
    Gee, I wonder if the political leanings of the three cities made any difference? If nothing else, competence comes into play and is very much on display showcasing the various cities.

    While I do not agree with her on many issues, I have always admired her for her classy approach. Ms. Powers does not resort to the name calling and mud slinging that most Democrats do. She does not deningrate her opposition. She lays out her facts and opinions and lets them stand on their own.

    Sadly, I agree we are on borrowed time, but there is hope.
    I do NOT believe that politicians will clean up the mess THEY made on their own. I do NOT believe the answer lies in the vote. Mark Twain once said that if it (voting) were really important, they would not let us do it.
    Do they send the police out to monitor voting? Nope. Not important.
    They do send out the police during demonstrations and peaceful assemblages. The politicians know that if it gets too big, they can not control it. Look at the Tea Party. It caused a minor revolt in the Republican Party which continues today. The People put down the TV remote, got off their butts and became involved.
    The problem is that We the People want instant results. The Progressives have been chipping away for the last 50 years. They have been patient, and their patience is paying off.
    They have been the only people speaking out.
    The Founders gave us an escape clause because I believe they foresaw what is happening. I refer to an Article Five Convention as described in Mark Levin’s book (The Liberty Amendments). To date, laws have only been passed by the House - Senate - President route. The second method, to date unused, is to call a convention of States. That move is on now.
    Those of us that do not believe the country is going in the right direction need to get more involved. Do NOT just vote (Still important). Get involved. Go to town hall meetings. Show up when your representatives are in town. Take a friend. Take two. It does not matter if they speak up. Just the bodies sends the message. Even better if they do speak up.
    From polls, 75% +/- think term limits for Congress are required. That is a GREAT starting point. Congress will never pass that. Only we can take back the Country and return the US to it’s place of prominence on the World stage.
    Like everything that matters, it starts small, and grows into something much larger. The time is NOW.

  • Has Obama ever done anything good while in office?

    Some people are realizing that government is not the answer as they see their freedoms slowly diminished. Sadly, I don’t think it is enough, as we have reached the tipping point. Romney’s 47% is now over 50% I fear.

    For broadband availalbility, you might try
    If you go with Hughes, read their Fair Access Policy carefully. It used to say that they could throttle back your speed based on their arbitrary judgement of your over usage. They would hit you without warning or notification of what was too much. Dish may have the same thing since the Satellite tends to be more prone to bottlenecks.

    Great post.
    Thank you.
    Do you know if anyone has done the same for the House?

    In my office, there were 2 who voted 0bama. About 3 years in, I asked the one who sat near me about this very thing. I I asked how would you rate him 3 years into his Presidency? His rating a C-, and he started rattling off all of the things he was disappointed with. He almost sounded Republican. At the end, I asked would you vote for him again? Without pause, he said yes. Go figure??????

  • Vanity: .357 Sig versus .40 S&W

    A search on
    980 hits for available .40 starting @ $0.25 a round.
    120 hits for 357 sig starting at $0.43 a round.

    Mirroring what others have said, I’d go with the 40. More availability and less costly to shoot.

    Be careful indeed. Rash action at this point would counter productive. Join NRA and/or similar groups. Encourage your friends and family to join. I read that the ranks of NRA have jumped 250K, bringing the total to 4 Million members. Surveys show that 47% of homes have guns. That is almost 150 Million potential NRA members. There is power in numbers.
