  1. I'm with Zwiebel on this. Run fast and far.    I do money transfers with Forex UK but that is only one part of their business. This sounds fishy.   Just my gut feeling.
  2. Sometimes the CEO buying some shares can be a sign of desperation and a tactic to get others to invest. 3 mil is peanuts to him after all. I hope I'm wrong. GE is sentimental to me for certain reasons and that is one of the worst reasons to hang on/keep buying a stock.   Individual stocks are just a part of my portfolio. Diversity rules.   Let's see what happens next week.
  3. Politics Gen XYZ

      I'm pretty sure that is what's happening in the U.S. People can no longer depend on Social Security because it is just a top up but many don't realize this. The vast majority of jobs have no pension plan. People really do need to save/invest for their own pensions but many can't afford it.

    Sounds like a 20 penny nail in the U.S.   Looking good. The landing came out nicely.
  6. Anderson Cooper called out President Donald Trump on Thursday for apparently breaching the Constitution when he urged a foreign government to punish members of Congress who had been critical of him. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided to bar Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) from entering Israel in retaliation for their support of the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. Netanyahu took the action following “intense pressure” from Trump, The New York Times reported, and shortly after the president appeared to flaunt his influence in a tweet:   72.4K people are talking about this   “The president and the courts have a sworn duty to not interfere with duly elected lawmakers going about their jobs,” Cooper said. “Which, today, it seems the president did — with a foreign government’s help, no less.” “This is certainly not normal,” Cooper added. “Except abnormal is kind of now normal.”
  7. Now Trump and Fox News are saying that the media is creating a recession in order to throw the election to the Democrats.   here
  8. Landlord Reneges on Buying Kitchen

      There's the proof he broke the verbal agreement. You have it in writing.
  9. What's got you flummoxed today?

      Once banned, no PM's.
  10. Knitting translation

      I told Himself about your moth problem and he said "probably came in some yarn.".
  11. Laws on leaving a dog indoors while one is away

    Was it a muzzlelos dog that should have had one? What kind of dog was it?
