    Ok, but my point is that speculation is a business forecasting tool that without, many could not accurately do the jobs that they do, hence they would have to hedge their costs themselves, increasing pricing to the consumer.

    And you think that Soros funding this sham, and Unions co opting it have nothing to do with Obama's campaign? Tell us another one please?

    I have no problem with businesses forcasting their future needs.

    If that is the latest right wing meme, it reveals they are terrified of this entire movement - only really in its beginning stages.

    Mostly BS
    increasing pricing to the consumer
    as I said a certain amount of speculation is good for the market, after that it's nothing more then thievery

    I never said that all speculation is bad, what I did say is that when speculation is sucking the blood out of our economy it's time to identify the problem and put regulations in place to keep it in check

    FactCheck.org : Playing Politics with Gasoline Prices

    Oil industry analysts say several factors contribute to high cost of crude oil: increased demand for oil as the world economy begins to recover, turmoil in oil producing countries in the Mideast and North Africa, a weaker U.S. dollar, and speculation in the oil futures market.

    yes, that is because (as I noted above) PP specifically counts each event separately in order to minimize the focus on paper. so, for example, if you come into PP because you believe you are pregnant and want to abort, and PP confirms that you are pregnant and sets up a date, and then you come back on that date and abort your baby; that is counted as a person coming in for a pregnancy test, and a person coming in for an abortion rather than the same person taking multiple procedures in the process of getting an abortion. slap on a post-abortion checkup and you've already reduced the number of patients receiving abortions to 1/3.

    It doesn't change the fact what you claimed is completely false. The report states that: [we] provided nearly 11.4 million medical services for three million people

    Assume the 332,278 abortions were done for individuals who get however many procedures you want, they are still only 11% of the people served. Far from the "overwhelming majority" you claimed. Unless you want to claim that each abortion can be done on more than 1 individual.

    You used the word "you" when referring to the haymarket's post. So now you are moving away from your claim?

    I keep asking for evidence of who these "libbos" or "those who lean a bit left" who say all these things as has been claimed, from Thrilla and another poster, but still no evidence has been forthcoming. The infantile claim is from those who make the claim but can't back it up.
