The Birthers will be excluded from the real Presidential hopefuls soon! UPDATE

Much has been made about the latest assertions of Donald Trump and his pushing the "birther" claims that President Obama was not born in the US. He has risen to the top of the Republican Presidential hopefuls with these assertions as it has played well to a minority, a loud minority, within the Republican Party. In my view, the 'birther claim is code for we never will recognize any black man as our President. But soon this "birther" gauntlet will be abandoned by the extreme Republicans in favor of more moderate ones within the party.

You see right now it is a litmus test to show if you are conservative enough. Soon it will revert in the other direction, as a test to separate out the extreme candidates from the more serious Republicans, and it will happen in the blink of an eye. Several respectable candidates have stood up and renounced there idea that the President wasn't born here, like Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty. Mayor Bloomberg did this week. These are the adults out there. People will be reminded by the media of their position on this issue as time carries on and those who sided with the birther thinking will be left out of the running. That will include Donald Trump, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Mike Pence and Michele Bachmann. You just watch!

UPDATE: Wednesday, April 27th
Well today President Obama through his complete Birth Certificate on the web dashing the Carnival Barker, Donald Trump, under the bus in as classy a way as our President has behaved since his Presidency. For his part, Trump claimed how great he was that he was able to force the issue on President Obama to finally present his birth certificate, but he said he had to see it first and go over it carefully before he was willing to proclaim it valid. What nonsense by Trump. He is a fool and a racist. I would never watch his TV show and I hope you give it up too!

Forget "the Donald"! He is the conservative media's current frontman; just the latest in its attempt to control the political agenda: focus on the "birther" issue, anti-gay issues, abortion/Planned Parenthood, etc., rather than overturning "Citizens United",enacting a fair tax structure, saving Social Security, reforming Medicare so as to save it, preserving the middle class and developing an energy plan that considers the environment.

Amen to your amen, Charles. It is all Bread and the Circus, and I think humanity has always been hoodwinked by this sort of sleight-of-mind.

My 401k hit a record high yesterday, Friday, 29 April. Meanwhile, I will lose everything on Beacon, poor company with such an excellent - even proven - technology. The TZA also will bankrupt me, and I'll have to depend on my little 401k and SocSec, plus the miracle that my (Japanese) company will give me after maybe 20 years of work, when I retire. I'm giving Beacon two more years, therefore, to somehow manage to increase ten-fold, so that I break even on its stock, while they give their CEO a "reduced" compensation package, since they missed every one of their important goals. My friend sold out, but I'm too stupid to do so.
Anyway, I'll just go back to listening to Brahms. He was smarter than any of the politicians - and far more loving. Poor Obama, I feel sorry for him. I think, although he's a kind of moderate, Eisenhower type Republican, he sincerely wants to do a little good for the people; I hope he is realizing how important the Supreme Court is, and that he will keep learning how to use the Bully Pulpit. If he can get public opinion behind him strongly by the election, and have the Dems strongly re-take charge - highly unlikely right now - he may be able to accomplish something. After all, Pelosi passed just about everything on the agenda. Too bad we don't have a parliamentary system here.

Obama should work very hard to make a peace between Israel and Palestine. If he were to do so, he would not only earn his Peace Prize, but ensure his reelection by a landslide, I think.

In long-distance cyber-friendship,

Jerry, thanks for your comments. So sorry your personal financial situation is bad. I sold much of my BCON when it went to $1.99. I too think the company has a good product and technology, but they were undercapitalized so they borrow money until their plants start generating income. They do get grants occasionally too, and that helps, but consider this reality. They have taken on debt and the interest on that debt may cost them their income from electric storage. So no net gain. In my view this company needs to be purchased by someone with deeper pockets.

Regarding TZA, I too have taken a shellacking. I have been surprised the market pushed up so high without any major correction and I can't last longer than the Fed has money, as they can just keep printing. So when this starts to move down more seriously, I will most likely buy TZA Call Options as I don't need much cash up front and can get great leverage. That is how I plan to try and recoup my losses on TZA as well. But that day has not yet arrived. So I wait patiently.

Good luck, Jerry. All the best.
