    Leave the dirty wars to the enemies. We’ll fight clean.

    Now, imagine our tanks using clean energy, and our planes flying with corn-based fuels. But, the U.S. can go and create ‘clean’ hydrogen fuels to fly our planes, and when they get shot down, the plane itself can be used kamikaze-style against the enemies (but, would that be playing dirty?).

    Next idea from Obama will be for our troops to fire blanks at their enemies. After all, ‘we are all Muslims now’.

    Her Father Shot Her in the Head, as an ‘Honor Killing’

    It's a cultural and religious thing, and when we Americans get more Muslims into the country, we'll then understand and see honor killings as a normal and natural thing, and most importantly, as what Allah intended.

    Kids in school now and in colleges, are all beginning to understand (indoctrination can perform wonders) the importance of being tolerant towards other religions, no matter how horrific we might view the practices of those religions now.

  • The Anti-Trump Network: Fox News Money Flows into Open Borders Group

    "In asking the question of “what’s wrong over there?” Trump has shined a spotlight on one of Washington’s best kept secrets: namely, Fox’s role via its founder Rupert Murdoch in pushing an open borders agenda."

    That's a whole lot of B.S.!

    Murdock may or may not be pushing for open borders, but, that didn't stop Trump from using the network to advance his campaign and other endeavors.

    Trump did not mention the open borders issue when deciding to boycott the upcoming debate. He mentioned Megan Kelly, and she is not involved with open borders.

    If Trump was concerned about Murcoch's views on open borders, then Grum was being a hypocrite by going on FOX news for anything. Besides, Trump never mentioned his concerns about Murdoch's open border issue. It's being mentioned now, because, there is a perception that FOX and Megan Kelly are not being fair to Trump.

    After the debate (with Trump or not), we'll see if he continues being a hypocrite and goes on FOX to seek more air time for his campaign. I'll bet he doesn't even mention the open borders issue at all.

    The FBI Will Recommend Prosecution For Hillary

    "For the greater good", the FBI should postpone any indictment or prosecution of Hillary, until after the election; and, if she's elected president, the FBI should hold off until she serves her one or two terms.

    It's what any good liberal would wish for, especially Obama and Hillary and Bubba.

    Mostly, the FBI should consider how damaging it would be to the 47% who need a liberal such as Hillary to continue the government giveaways. The illegal immigrants would also be affected, and so would ISIS and Al-Qaeda and Iran, who, for certain, would prefer Hillary to push around.

    Hillary and Bill are both known to be sleazy, along with being criminals who got away with their crimes (so far). If the above perpetrator had been Clinton or family of Clinton, it's highly unlikely that he would have gotten any jail time, and his punishment would not have been greater than a slap on the wrist.

    The sleaze above can easily identify with Hillary and her husband. He likely believes that, if Hillary were president, that his crimes could be reduced to misdemeanors or to petty crimes. With the Clintons, there never was such a thing as crime, since they knew they could get away with anything, especially with a democrat at the top.

    Show you the money? How about the facts, as they appear on the ground right now?

    Apple is about 70% dependent on iPhones to rake in the revenue and profits.

    The other services Apple offers, are dependent on iPhone usage. So, basically, even the ‘iStore’ and iCloud and every other service, is an extension of the iPhone. Take away the iPhones, and the other services collapse. So, iPhone and ‘iServices’ are one and the same; it’s one ecosystem where everything revolves around the iPhone. Were the iPhone to lose its luster, the profits at Apple would drop precipitously. The 12% or so marketshare of the smartphone market that Apple enjoys, would not be enough to produce enough revenue from the ‘iServices’. The Android marketplace doesn’t have to worry about the number of users dropping precipitously, and whatever money is made from the ecosystem won’t be affected.

    Apple is its own worst enemy,where they control the whole ecosystem, from hardware to software, and all of that serves to keep the number of users to a relatively low number when compared to Android/Google.

    When it comes to your ‘straw man’ references, there aren’t any. The facts speak for themselves. It is you, as a member of the Apple-cult, that prefers to remain in denial about the problems which Apple faces. Throwing the argument back at me, doesn’t change the facts, and the investors and analysts are all asking the same questions that I have.

    You remind me of that other cult, namely the Muslim-cult, where nothing that can be said will convince them that, they have a problem with their religion. Your religion is the Apple-cult. Try to get a ‘real’ and ‘normal’ religion.

    Winning for a business isn’t copies.

    Winning for any business is profits.


    You're still having a huge problem understanding what you read or what I wrote.

    I made it a point to mention that what I was referring to, is the number of copies 'sold'. Not the amount of profits generated from those copies. Any dope nowadays would rather sell just one copy of an item that generates a million dollars in profits, than selling a million copies to generate the same million dollars or less. It's common sense and good business practice.

    You insist on prolonging an argument which isn't anywhere within my comments.

    Apple has been raking in the dough with its iPhone, and nobody will argue that it isn't a productive product as far as generating revenue.

    Windows is a generator of profits too, but, at a small scale per copy. 1.5 billion copies of Windows will generate a lot of revenue; not from sales of those copies, but from the potential after-market sales of other services and products and software and content, etc.

    There may come a time when the iPhone doesn't generate as much in profit per device as in the last 8 years that it's been around. The profit margin per device may eventually come down to resemble the same low margin that the rest of the industry enjoys, and that would spell disaster for Apple and for its investors.

    Android devices are low profit items, if they generate any profits at all. But, the Android ecosystem for Google and others is not dependent on the profit per device. It's about selling in volumes in order to make the profits in the back-end, like with advertising. If Apple's devices become less profitable, Apple will be left with a low number of users, though still significant. But, that lower number of users would not be able to generate the same amount of revenue from after-market sales, as the Android ecosystem or the Windows ecosystem.

    Expecting that Apple will forever be able to count on the high-margin profits, is foolish and not good business. Apple needs other products and services, and counting on iPhones for about 70 percent of revenue, is, again, not good business proactive. Apple needs to diversify, and I think they're trying, while understanding that the iPhone can't carry them forever.

    And, again, I just mentioned number of copies, not the amount of profits. Entiende?

  • Obama’s Gun-Control Order Is Dictatorial, and It Won’t Work

    01/05/2016 6:28:58 PM PST · 6 of 18
    adorno to richardb72

    Obama is so misunderstood...

    I think the president is right on with his executive order to cut gun violence. He has the right as president to go over the congress to impose his way on the people, especially when the congress gets in his way and tries to stop his every move.

    Obama is the president, and, nobody has the right to question his actions, especially if he can save at least one life. Never mind all of the other laws and restrictions and regulations already in existence to control guns and gun violence. One more regulation and one more executive order won’t be felt much.

    Also, never mind that the criminals will still be able to get their hands on guns, no matter what current laws and regulations exist, and no matter how many executive orders are imposed on the people. Criminals are just that, criminals, and they will not obey any laws or regulations, no matter what. What Obama is doing is for the good of the people, and most law abiding people won’t violate the law, so, hopefully, Obama’s new regulations will keep the good people from obtaining guns, which could find their way to the law-breaking bad people.

    Oh, by the way...

    Obama might have broken constitutional law by going over congress’ head, but, when it’s “for the good of the people”, any law can be broken. And, while Obama doesn’t have the right to limit the right of the people to practice their right to bear arms, it’s still for the good of the people, and so, the 2nd amendment right to bear arms is secondary to the good of the people.

    The executive order could have the effect of disarming Americans while the bad guys will still be able to get their guns, but again, since we can’t keep the criminals from getting weapons, we have to do the next best thing, and keeping guns from people who could potentially harm someone accidentally, is of the utmost necessity.

    Obama believes in what is best for the American people, and breaking the law and doing things that are unconstitutional, are okay, because, it’s “for the greater good”.

    Repugnicans will never understand the goodness of Obama’s heart.

    But, Apple is the darling of the industry,and when the darling starts looking ugly, the investors might get spooked and so might the consumers. In fact, the consumers might start thinking that sales are bad because the device is less than the 'perfection' the expected from Apple, and could start looking for other makes/models.

    For certain, Apple does make most of the smartphone earnings. That’s because of the high margins that Apple charges.

    Once the sales start to fade, and Apple has to lower the prices, Apple won’t be looking so good; not to analysts and not to you either.

    Apple might have had good growth from the iPod, but not as dramatically as they did after the iPhone took off. The iPod is not as important to Apple anymore, but the iPhone is. Once that starts becoming “just another phone”, there goes the high valuation and there goes the earnings and there goes the high-profits and there goes the majority of the Apple hype. BUT!!!! The Apple-cult will remain, moaning the passing of the good times, and hoping for another round of Apple magic via some miracle and ‘innovative new device’ Hey, I’ve got an idea for Apple: there is a device out on the market known as the Surface 2-in-1 device, and another known as the Surface Book. Apple should reinvent the Surface devices, and call then the “UnderTheSurface” or Underneath devices. ;)

    Problem with your ‘preferred’ set of analysts is that, they don’t want to acknowledge the simple fact that, Apple got to where it is now on the back of the iPHone, and that’s what I’ve been saying, and I’ll say it again. Apple is mostly dependent on the strength of the iPhone, which, sooner or later will be relegated to just being another good smartphone and not the premier phone that it’s been thought to be for the last 8 or so years. Once that happens, it won’t matter what YOUR set of analysts want people to think; the market will dictate the value of Apple on the lack of strength of the iPhone.

    Basically, Apple is the “iPhone Company”, and might as well change their name again to ‘iOS Inc.”.

    Problem with your P/E ratios is that, most investors don’t buy a stock because of the earnings they’ll be getting from their investments. Most people who invest will be looking to ‘get rich’ via expectations of a stocks price going up.

    Earnings at Apple are great and fantastic, but, the stock and the market cap are what people (investors) get excited about.

    So, if the stock is what gets people excited, then the excitement subsides when it’s very noticeable that Apple is mostly a one-trick pony when it comes to sales and earnings. If the iPhone were to lose its appeal (which will happen sooner or later) and just became another good smartphone, then, Apple would be in deep ‘sheet’ when it comes to its market cap and company value, which is what is worrying market analysts. Right now, besides the Macs computers, Apple diversification can be spelled with on letter of the alphabet, that being ‘i’, or the iDevices. Not a great prospect.

    I knew enough to switch over to Linux. It's not that difficult In fact, it's simple.

    But, almost as soon as I started using Linux, I gave up, and luckily, I still had Windows running on my main partition, and I then uninstalled Linux. Linux is a fine OS, but not form most regular PC users.

    But, why the fear of upgrading to Windows 10? Don't believe the FUD. It's better than Windows 7 and better than Windows 8/8.1, and faster too.

    Trump’s popularity, and his poll numbers, can be explained by one simple sentence from the movie “Network:

    “We’re mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore!”

    The media and politicians and pundits are not taking Trump seriously, but Trump represents the pent up anger from the people. Trump could easily win the presidency if the people continue to believe that Trump best represents their moods and needs and desires.

    ...can we now build a machine to detect radical Islamic terror attacks?

    That device already exists.

    It's called a brain, with common sense.

    ...the ripples emitted by a pair of orbiting black holes would stretch a million kilometer-long ruler by less than the size of an atom.

    Okay...

    The experiment seems simple enough...

    Just create a pair of orbiting black holes, and place a million kilometer-long ruler between them. Then, measure the rules as the black holes dance around each other.

    Hillary Clinton Calls for Overhaul of Justice System

    Let's make this as simple as possible. After all, according to the democrats' treatment of blacks, they can't do anything on their own.

    So, to keep it simple for blacks...

    All laws and regulations will not be applicable to blacks (just the white racists).

    I don't know if he's committed any violent acts in his life, but, the biggest law-breaker in the land is Obama, a well-known democrat.

    Obama knew inherently that he alone was vastly more important than all other speakers

    I'm surprised that the others were even allowed on the same stage as 'The One'.

    They aren’t exactly “one big happy family” and the spirit of cooperation isn’t quite what one might believe.

    I found that to be true in many companies I worked at, and I worked at small, medium and large size companies. Competition, and jealousy abounds everywhere.
