No one cares. It means nothing and is just a way to get people brainwashed to watch TV ads.

b. h. obama was pathetic during the debate and after the debate he's even more pathetic. He's running his mouth like a bully who got his azz kicked, saying anything to regain lost credibility...Credibility that he never really had because it was all smoke and blue mirrors created and maintained by a marxist media.
If by chance you are one of the applauding screamers who attended an obama speech you may want to contemplate the fact that you are a fool....A very big fool.

Stewart suggested on the Daily Show that Obama looked like he was on Ambien, and Romney like he'd tried caffeine for the first time...LOL

That still won't stop most of you idiots from babbling about how Obama is one, though, will it?

You get your news from Jon Stewart.

It figures.

He's a stupid man you know. Everyone knows his audience is made up of pot heads who'll laugh at anything late at night with zero options, including ambien and caffeine jokes. Jon Stewart and the rest of ya know much about Ambien. Your leader is choom gang Barack. There's no help for you, you know. You'll grow old with Jon Stewart in a parallel yuk yuk universe while others go on to live their dreams with hard work and a purpose.

MOSCOW – Russian government leaders recently returned from a fact-finding trip to Washington, D.C., Houston and New York City to learn about the way the United States conducts and regulates derivatives markets.
The trip, hosted by international commodity trading firm Koch Supply & Trading, allowed representatives from the Central Bank, Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Antimonopoly, and Russia's national legislative body to meet with senior officials in the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the New York Mercantile Exchange, as well as experts on the legal and marketing issues of commodity derivatives.
“We are poised to develop a strong derivatives market in Russia and are actively seeking information about how others have implemented such procedures,” said Victor Pleskachevsky, chairman of the Property Committee of the State Duma.“We hope to learn more from the experience of Koch Supply & Trading, as well as other American firms, as we implement reforms and create new risk management tools specifically for Russian businesses.”
“We are impressed with the progress the Russian government has achieved thus far in building a strong derivatives trading market in Russia,” said Sergei Timokhovitch, Koch Supply & Trading general director for Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States trading.“We are pleased to be involved with committees working to develop these markets.”
A KS&T company recently became registered on the St. Petersburg Currency Exchange, an important achievement as it continues to grow its Russian trading activities and better serve Russian markets, said Timokohvitch, who manages KS&T's office here.
The company has a significant role in Russia as a purchaser of crude oil, fuel oil, naphtha and other petroleum products, and is among the most active U.S. traders in moving Russian crude. In 2002, KS&T purchased about 4.2 million barrels of Russian crude, about 20 percent of the total imports by U.S. companies. In addition, the company purchased about 18 million barrels of Russian fuel oil. Koch Supply & Trading also delivered the first-ever shipment of Russian crude oil to the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve in October 2002. The company moves products through hubs, ports and terminals around the world, including the United States, Europe, Singapore and the Middle East.
Koch Supply & Trading is wholly owned by Koch Industries, Inc., a Wichita, Kansas-based firm that owns a diverse group of companies engaged in trading, investment and operations worldwide.
Koch companies have 25 years of trading knowledge – expanding from trading domestic crude oil to globally trading a host of commodities from locations in Wichita, Kan., Houston, New York, London, Moscow, Mumbai and Singapore. Koch companies also have a long history of involvement in Russia, begun when Fred C. Koch, co-founder of what is now Koch Industries, developed a process for making gasoline out of heavy crude in the 1920s. In the 1930s, he helped upgrade two Russian refineries during a modernization drive. More information is available at and .
