Re: MAT?

Mat has a 24 year dividend history, with dividend cuts in 2000, 2001 and 2002

Re: Poll: OT: What kind of fireplace???

Depending on where you are, an outdoor hot tub might count as a major appliance. When we had one, the tank rental was about $75 for the year. They tried to put us on a monthly fill plan for a monthly contracted fee, but we opted for fillups at least [more]

Re: Good question

Not only Hillary loved Alinsky. Our POTUS also studied his beliefs and techniques and is now putting them to the test while the citizenry sleeps.

Look up Saul Alinsky on Wikipedia and take note of the very first sentence. [more]

Re: 4 Step Plan To Stop Illegals <g>

1. Buy a few MREs for each illegal alien along with several bottles of water apiece and a gun.

Re: Engineers not not get enough respect

Engineers have a high starting salary after graduation. However, after 10 -15 years, their salaries start to plateau. This is not true for medical and legal professions. Here is a listing of median expected annual pay for a typical:

Re: Engineers not not get enough respect

Engineering salaries start high but stay low (unless they go into engineering management)

I'm not sure what you mean by this - particularly the stay low part. Maybe the salaries of bad engineers stay low, but most engineers are well [more]

MAT?

MAT is down 7% today and was down over 10% at one point. Earnings were abominable. The yield is 4.16% as of today's close, so you could get paid to wait, but you might be waiting awhile. This is a dividend growth stock, at least so far. [more]

Re: Roads & Bridges

The existing energy grid should be redesigned and rebuilt from scratch. ~jerryjibjab

Well, we agree on this.


Except, the energy grid is privately owned.

Re: Roads & Bridges

$50B is nothing to fix existing infrastructure problems. Figure a couple T to start.

Wanna bet? I-4 Ultimate, through downtown Orlando, will be widened to 10 lanes at a cost of $2.4 Billion. This is a 20+ mile stretch resulting in [more]

Re: Roads & Bridges

White House: Those bridges we promised to fix back in 2009 are totally falling apart

This is a lie, at least in our state. Every structurally deficient bridge has been replaced.

Re: 42% of Millennials say they're Socialists

I hope it's just youth and the effects of indoctrination, it wears off, i was heavily indoctrinated in high school and college with propaganda. Real life experiences will reverse some of it, but a lot won't break free because they really aren't [more]

Re: Obama's thug nation

Even threats against teachers are ignored, as administrators' hands are tied by the new policy. Knowing there won't be consequences, thugs can control the classroom, disrupting lessons for other kids, including minorities, who want to [more]

Re: Just gettin' started

If you think the scandals are going die down, I've got news for you. Zero knows that he doesn't have to lie to voters again to get elected, so he's going to appoint even more fervent Marxist tyrants. It may get so bad that Hillary will run as a [more]

Re: Redskins v. Teabagger

The first big day for this movement was Tax Day, April 15. And organizers had a gimmick. They asked people to send a tea bag to the Oval Office. One of the exhortations was “Tea Bag the Fools in D.C.” A protester was spotted with a sign saying, [more]

Re: Redskins v. Teabagger

If it's offensive, one wonders why Tea Party first used the term to describe themselves.

This is a lie! Your own 'source' says so. Nowhere does it pronounce Tea Party patrons call themselves tea baggers. Very clearly, the 'article' [more]

Re: Rodney King Baby!

The brief EBT card outage was the result of a routine back-up check on the vendor’s Xerox Corp. systems.

So the EBT system is backed up, but the IRS e-mail system isn't?
