    Depends on whether or not Obama is successful in achieving the leveling of the playing field as he wants it.

    Considering that most of those who think he'll be judged the truly horribly also tend to be the most prone to hyperbole and melodramatics, I'd bet my house and my life savings on it being a lot better than they expect.

    The last time I looked at my paycheck, it did not indicate that I spoke for the President. Regardless, many Americans are doing quite well in schools and many fine graduates are produced each year.

    so kids who can't spell or add fractions at the state level are suddenly gonna perform when the fractions and spelling are nationalized?
    There is no American school system. There are tens of thousands of different school systems each with its own individual curriculum that is not totally integrated or dovetailed with national standardized test like the Japanese are. As such, students are often measured on what the DID NOT cover in class and what WAS COVERED in class is NOT on the standardized tests. The Japanese, with their national curriculum, do not have this basic problem.

    I have no idea what the rest of your smart alecky, insincere, comments have to do with anything, other than you trying to look clever..... and falling far short of the mark.

    U. S. JUDGE FINES AGORA SUBSIDIARY AND EDITOR $1.5 M FOR SECURITIES FRAUD

    An investment newsletter’s publisher and its editor have been hit with $1.5 million in financial penalties after a U. S. federal judge determined they defrauded their own subscribers in a securities scam.

    Judgment in favor of the Securities Exchange Commission and against Maryland-based Pirate Investor LLC, now called Stansberry & Associates Investment Research, LLC, and Frank Porter Stansberry was issued at the U. S. District Court for the District of Maryland on August 1, 2007 – 28 months after the completion of a bench trial. The penalty comprises disgorgement of $1.3 million in profits and interest from the fraudulent activity, for which Pirate Investor and Stansberry are jointly and severally liable, plus a fine of $120,000 against each defendant.

    U. S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis found in favor of a third defendant, Pirate Investor’s parent, Agora, Inc., determining that it could not be held liable for the fraudulent statements of its subsidiary simply “by virtue of its ownership and ability to control Pirate”. There was no evidence that Agora, as opposed to Pirate, directly made the false statements at issue, determined Judge Garbis.

    The SEC had accused the defendants of fraud concerning a “Special Report” authored by Stansberry, using the pseudonym ‘Jay McDaniel’, about publicly-listed uranium enrichment services provider USEC, Inc. and a promotional “Super Insider Tip Email” offering the Special Report for sale that was distributed on May 14, 2002, after which Pirate Investor sold 1,217 reports for $1,000 each.

    The promotional material offered purchasers of the report the opportunity to “double your money” by acting on “inside tips” that Stansberry had obtained from a “senior executive inside the company”, according to the SEC. However, the SEC alleged that the report, which included a claim that Government approval for a lucrative new pricing agreement involving USEC would be announced on May 22, was replete with lies and the judge agreed.

    “The Super Insider Solicitation and the Special Report contain numerous statements that were untrue,” he commented. “Some of the untrue statements may not be actionable. [For example, the use of the pseudonym “Jay McDaniel” or even the predictive nature of some statements.] However, the essential fraudulent element – the misrepresentation that the purveyor of the Special Report had a particular inside source for the precise date on which the stock price would rise – is definitely actionable.”


    Consider the source would be the rule here when viewing the DiSalvo link.

    Just google the name PORTER STANSBERRY and you get a whole bunch of information available on this scam artist running a decades old con to get rich. And he uses Alberts "the end is near" scare tactics to laugh all the way to the bank.

    You can't mention that word without violating a Forum rule.

    Edit: I've been spanked severely by moderation for that.
