Perhaps Bass should stick to nickels?

But, what was their hedge to the call and what was fund performance?

People hear the name and take the words as prophecy. Sheeple bitch.

Anything that is tied directly or indirectly to the big brother surveillance state is going to be the big winners...

A rigged market will guarantee those most important to the state's interests don't lose their money.

You don't need these sock puppets to do your own research into technologies the companies are pushing and their ties to the club through .gov contracts/board of directors, etc.

Thar 'tis, just buy the largest campaign donor Defense Contractors and kick back in the easy chair.

Richard Maybury's right.

These clown sare so confident and suave as are all the television and news commentators, politicians, and the experts that speak with such authority, I include the pundits and so called specialist. I must often remind myself that, you don't know that.

It is often not the message you put out, but how you project it. I can see you now, your head a bobbing and your arms moving all around, you state your case  with such brilliance and force that often we are swept away!

This rant below is in reference to all the pundits and so called experts, about all the words that spew from their mouths, about the reams of material they write, and the large quantity of often misstated facts they put forth.
