I've been urging him to register for remedial reading classes and, later writing, but, well, you know how it is, guess he's embarrassed and hesitant to take that big step forward.

“Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe," he said. "No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.

Isn't it funny that Obama accuses Romney of stealing peoples retirement, then why is Delphi suing the U.S. government for $450M?
Shafted Delphi Retirees Suing [U.S.] Treasury, Auto Task Force
Submitted by Mark Modica on Mon, 07/25/2011 - 13:25

The unprecedented intrusion of the executive branch of the US government into the American auto industry when the Obama Administration orchestrated the General Motors and Chrysler bankruptcy processes is now leading to unprecedented responses. Groups that were clearly discriminated against and had their rights subordinated to politically powerful unions may actually have a winnable case against our own government as lawsuits are being brought against the US Treasury Dept. and others.

The Delphi salaried retirees who saw their pension benefits disintegrate after the GM bankruptcy are now suing the US Treasury, the Auto Task Force, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, and ex-Auto Task Force heads, Steve Rattner and Ron Bloom. The first hearing against the Treasury Dept. and others will occur on August 17th. The basis of the suit is that the Obama Administration wrongfully used taxpayer dollars to pick winners and losers in the GM bankruptcy. I had a conversation with one of the lead plaintiffs, Chuck Cunningham, who explained how there was blatant favoritism and discrimination in regards to pension benefits for groups that should have had equal standing.

Mr. Cunningham, who is a retired senior executive of Delphi, informed me that the Delphi salaried workers' benefit fund was one of the highest funded plans that were taken over by the Pension Benefits Guarantee Company (an independent agency of the US government administered by Presidential cabinet members) during bankruptcy processes. Other Delphi groups whose pensions were taken over included the UAW, International Union of Electrical Workers and the United Steelworkers Union. Can you take a guess at which groups faired the best?

While the pension funds involved should have been treated equally, politically powerful cronies of the Obama Administration were favored through a process called "topping up." Treasury instructed GM to use taxpayer money to top up pension payments for the UAW, GM salaried workers, the IUE and the steelworkers' union while Delphi salaried workers lost the majority of their benefits. The favored groups lost none of their pension payments, courtesy of the US taxpayers, and retained health care benefits. The non-politically connected Delphi workers lost 70% of their pensions and all of their health care benefits.

A congressional committee has been investigating the unfair treatment that Delphi retirees received compared to other groups..........

Yep, Obama's U.S. Treasury/ Auto Task Force stole $450 million from their retirement accounts but, oh that Mitt Romney is evil!!!

Because people are brought up to live in the projects? Aside from being a classist remark, I'm sure the Americans who fought for usand gave their lives did not have your spending in mind when they did. Veterans and fallen soldiers have given up far more, gotten paid much less, and worked much harder, yet people talk about what 'they fought for'.

Well, when you are the baddest dude on the block, who's gonna mess with you?
In Germany around 1956-57 the 11th Airborne Division use to have a golden eagle at the officers club in this large cage and they use to feed him fresh fish. This was at Warner Kaserne on the North side of Munich. I am sure they do not allow that any more.
Oh, Warmer Kaserne , up until the finished the Pentagon, had the larges building in the world. Hilter had it built in the mid-1030's for the Waffen SS and it could hold 18,000 troops. Even today it is still the second largest building in the world.
When I was 5-6 years old I would get a quarter a week allowance and we would go on post and for ten events buy some pommes fritis (French fries) at the kiosk next to the building.

So classically childish and petulant.
There was NO IMPLICATION in my post of a "United States Stock Exchange" (all words capitalized as you have done). My reference was to "the United States stock market," a term understood by all rational and educated people.
BUT WHY do you continue to avoid the real question regarding what the DJIA has to do with "the United States stock market?" It is an almost meaningless piece of datum due to its inherent statistical flaw which is why economists NEVER use the DJIA as the measure of The Market.

Body in Flagler Beach ID'd as Delaware man who moved to St. Augustine: October 17, 2012 -

By Charles Broward
A body that washed ashore four moths ago in Flagler Beach has been identified as a 64-year-old Delaware man who moved to St. Augustine earlier in the year.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Tuesday that Robert Schmitt was discovered in the surf June 8. A medical examiner had later ruled his death as a homicide as the result of a gunshot wound.
The News-Journal said Schmitt had arrived in St. Augustine in March in an older-model white Volvo station wagon that was not registered to him and has not been found.
Flagler Beach detectives told the newspaper that Schmitt was a “loner” who frequented downtown St. Augustine and may have looked like a transient. But they said his nails and teeth were in good condition when his naked body was found and did not appear to be homeless.

And Lord, please reveal the basics of macroeconomics to Mssrs. Romney and Ryan who embarrass those of us who a true free market conservative Republicans by their complete lack of understanding of Economics and everything that has to do with a prosperous economic system.
It is not the fault of Mssrs. Romney and Ryan that they have NEVER studied Economics in a serious setting. They should be pitied for their abysmal ignorance rather than being scorned for their lack of education.
