Your theory makes more perfect sense than many of these naysayers want to, or are able to admit. We as mere citizens have little inside information into what is going on with this country or overseas. It's the movers and shakers, the ones with contacts and billions invested, who get the skinny of what's on the horizon and they get that information much sooner than we as the peons of society ever will. We are the backbone of this nation, yet they are the true muscle. We do the grunt work, they reap the rewards.

The stock market is and always has been a dead giveaway when something is looming. I am intrigued by your insight and honestly amazed that there are a couple of people out here who honestly understand the true underbellies of politics, along with how far the intestines can stretch once you slit them open. Once those intestines are in a straight line and laying wide, many of you would be surprised at the stench emanating from within the feces of political and corporate corruption.

There are growing number of us out here who are not taking what the media spoon feeds us as fact any longer. Watch the stock market even if you don't have a portfolio. You'll put it all together in time.

Well said and extremely well thought out, user named "Here".

LOL...so true...but they still don't get it. They will just repeat what Rachael Madcow tells them to say. That's how they roll. Is is funny but it's kind of sad how stupid they are and what their stupidity does to their kids lives. Oh well! lmao
It is sad, as they blindly follow the democratic line, and talk in circles, constantly bringing up rush limbaugh sean hannity, both guys I rarely listen to. But their favorite trying to make some cutesy insult with the word tea or tea bag in it. They constantly show a lack of critical thinking, and also a severe lack of originality.

You shouldn't be surprised when people question the substance of someone that doesn't even know that sentences start with capital letters. A fact is a fact. A fact is proven by evidence. Evidence that you have continually refused to provide.

The first answer is 12.5%. I couldnít answer the other questions because I donít have a Facebook account. Here are some typical questions all Harlan County 8th graders can answer. First Iíll ask the questions, and then see if you can get the answers. I may be wrong, so please check my work. These are just typical questions a person from Harlan might receive.

GEOGRAPHY:

1. Name the largest Island in the World?
2. What is the capitol city of Burkina Faso?
3. In what country is the Ob River found?
4. How tall is Mt. Everest in feet?
5. What is the smallest Canton in Switzerland?

MATH:(calculators are permitted)

1. A certain element decays from 1000g to 500g in 8 days; at what rate is the element decaying? Please give answer to 3 decimal places!
2. What is the 2nd derivative of sin(x)?
3. A sphere has a radius of 3000 miles: what is the volume of the sphere?
4. The area of a circle is pi times the radius squared. A certain circle has an initial radius of 100 ft. and is increasing at 30 ft. per second. How fast is the area of the circle growing?
5. If I put 100 dollars in the bank and the interest in compounding instantaneously at 3% annually, how much money will I have by the end of the year?

Answers:

1. Greenland
2. Ouagadougou
3. Russia
4. 29,028 feet
5. Zug

Math:

1.-.087g
2.-sin(x)

<Standing up, applauding user "Here">
the mkt. has always predicted whats shortly ahead when you know how read it.watch the middle east action.and then watch the mkt's now the usa. only gets 10% of its oil from their but here the thing if trouble begins and threatens the canal.then most other big nations like china Indiana and Germany gets most their oil from their,so these big oil co. here will raise the prices and sell oil from here to them .then the people here will pay the same price as them nations over seas'e do.its going up.it jumped 309 just today.so that tell you they going be big trouble in the middle east.with the mkts not investing heavy in that part the region .they are falling fast.these big boys know whats going be going on.and you can tell by the way they invest.its like tomorrow news paper.

The person with the Hyden, Ky proxy pretty much lives on this thread and repeats himself a lot. I'm not sure if he's mentally challenged, uneducated or maybe just a confused elderly person. Judging by the way he writes, he may be just as confused trying to process what others write, so he can't reply on point. Either way, it's a waste of time expecting to have a rational discussion with him.

Yeah, it's said how some people take this site so seriously they spend all day and stay up all night with it. With all the posting Hyden does, you'd think he'd be able to write properly. I see that his buddy from Someset has already come to defend him. Their locations are always the same. They're not fooling anyone by changing usernames with every single post.
The political trolls will never get over losing the election. That's why they hijack threads like this that don't even have anything to do with politics. Funny how the Munfordville troll who uses one of Rush Limbaugh's favorite kiddy names, Dirty Harry Reid, claims locations don't matter. But, when you have the same unique for Owensboro locations saying the same partisan political nonsense again and again the same day, it's pretty obvious. Especially obvious with the Hyden troll that's barely literate. I've seen it's best to just let them change names all day and agree with each all they want. The more they post, the more ridicolous they make themselves look.
