Kerrys to divest some holdings
Boston Globe, by Bryan Bender

Original Article

WASHINGTON -- Senator John F. Kerry and his wife have agreed that should he become secretary of state they will divest nearly 100 separate investments in the United States and abroad -- ranging from oil companies to weapons makers and a Chinese food company -- in an effort to avoid conflicts of interest, according to a copy of his so-called ethics agreement. “I am committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct for government officials,” Kerry wrote in the agreement with the State Department’s ethics office. “...

Comments:
you need to read the actual PDF of what Kerry is proposing, and have a law degree to figure out what it might mean. It looks like he can get a waiver for anything (presumably from Obama?, Justice Department?), and "divest" doesn´t mean "get rid of" . And what does the phrase "direct and predictable effect on my financial interests" mean?? This thing is leakier than a sinking boat. Which raises the next question, has he paid those boat taxes yet??

John Kerry wasn´t concerned about ethics when he threw someone else´s medals over the fence, or scratched himself and applied for purple hearts.

Compare and contrast Kerry´s upcoming treatment by the far-left and the media (but I repeat myself) with the treatment Cheney got in the context of Haliburton.

When Kery ran for president in 2004, his billionaire wife told us that her investments were none of our business.

Oh well, I can dream.

I don´t believe that the fraudster has yet paid the MA sales tax due on his yacht purchase of a year or two ago. Correct me if I am wrong. Is it still berthed in RI? If yes, then he hasn´t.

I am guessing that Theresa has her toyboy on a short lease when it comes to mid-life crisis purchases. So he has to budget somehow - in spite of the fact that he married into a massive fortune. So tax avoidance (or more accurately tax evasion) is one of Jon´s budgeting tools.

I suppose the getting rid of all appearances of conflicts of interest doesn´t go as far as Insider Trading. I believe he was on the list of fat cats and used Te-raz-aH´S MONEY when he got wind of tidbits due to him being a "Senator".

Oil companies? Weapons makers? This hypocritical worm actually has the gall to admit he is involved in those anti-liberal activities, and then wants to take our guns away, and use less oil? Disgusting dog doody piece of garbage.

They are dumping them because his pal Obie has ruined the companies chances of making any profit. It´s as simple as that.

Another fine example of Libs playing the market to get richer while middle class Americans can´t find jobs...does anyone see a pattern here?

Abu Ghaith, Bin Laden’s Son-in-Law,
Is Convicted in Terror Trial

Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the most senior adviser to Osama bin Laden to be tried in a civilian United States court since the Sept. 11 attacks, was convicted on Wednesday of conspiring to kill Americans and providing material support to terrorists. Mr. Abu Ghaith, a 48-year-old Kuwaiti-born cleric known for his fiery oratory, had recorded impassioned speeches for Bin Laden after Sept. 11, in which he praised the attacks and promised that future attacks would be carried out.

Bosch to abandon
solar energy business

German engineering company Bosch said Friday that it is abandoning its solar energy business, because there is no way to make it economically viable amid overcapacity and huge price pressure in the industry. The solar power industry has been hit by falling subsidies, weaker sales and increasingly stiff price competition, especially by Chinese manufacturers. Robert Bosch GmbH´s move came after German industrial conglomerate Siemens announced last October that it would give up its loss-making solar business. Bosch said that it will stop making products such as solar cells,

Why Has SodaStream Gotten
So Aggressive All of a Sudden?
New York Magazine, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: heartsurgeon- 12/9/2012 1:08:18 PM     Post Reply
Maybe you´ve seen this newish SodaStream commercial that was banned in Europe but airs carefree in the U.S.? The one that features attractive people hitting the carbonating button atop their machines to make seltzer, but also thereby remotely detonating bottles of cola and orange soda in warehouses and bodegas, as if they were two-liter bogeymen? Last month, the U.K. regulator Clearcast banned the ad for "denigrating the soft drinks industry." The company insisted they didn´t mean to offend anyone, but, as stated in the commercial, using the appliance will spare the environment."With SodaStream you can save 2,000 bottles a year,"

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
