Who can spot the BS in this series of posts...

Let me help this along... in bold....

Why did you sell? Is not the best of Obama yet to come?

But, but, but, it was Obama who is getting rid of those cap gains rates.

You seem to be confused about something?

Fail.
Not quite. As with so many programs the Federal Government offers incentives for states to conform to federal wishes. In this case taxes are paid by companies into a federal Unemployment program that "loans" funds to states that are upside down. Since all states now owe hundreds of millions to billions to the federal government (because of the recession) the federal government has power over state programs.

i sold because I have a lot of money in the market. The market is currently up. Cap gains rates are favorable in 2012. And no one ever got hurt by taking money off the table.

I don't mind paying higher taxes in 2013 either. But if i'm ready to sell now and have a need for the money (looking at a 50cc bird), then it makes sense to take some of the profits now. Let me reiterate that I didn't sell all of my long and short positions. I still have stock in those companies. I only sold enough to cash out on some of the profits.

again, i have a need for the money now, so it makes sense to cash out some of the long positions I have while rates are lower. Let me assure you i don't have any problems with the rates in 2013 either. But if I have an immediate need for the money, then might as well do it now.

i can't stress how much everyone should have a little bit of money in the market if you can afford it and have the time to ride out the panic selling that occurs from time to time. Yes, you'll experience some downs. But by and large, my short and medium positions that I use for frivolous spending on airplanes has been up for most of the year. It's a great feeling buying airplanes with the gains from investments (even after holding back 30% of it for taxes) and then showing the wife where this money came from.

Three of those presidents had valid certifictes of birth. The fourth has yet to produce one.
Three of those pictured had made public their educational background. One has refused to do so.
Three of those pictured never had a pasport issued by any country other than the US. One has traveled to countries that US ciizens are prohibited from visiting and cannot get a visa to do so. How did he manage that? What country issued such permission?
Three of those pictured could quote the Bible and were undoubtedly Christian.
one can (and does) quote the Koran from memory and attende for years an anti American church.

I wonder who that might be????

When was the last time the USA waterboarded a prisoner while following set policy?

Glad you are okay with obama making sure you have less next year. But don't feel bad, we all will have less together.

That's right. This poster has made much of O's responsibilty for all the wonderful measures improving the economy and that the ones about to take place such as tax hikes and spending hikes will actually result in even more profits and higher returns. Now we see the OP telling us he's essentially short selling which is not what you do if you're honestly certain of definite future gains, and I might also add, not what someone convinced that it's patriotic to pay more in taxes would do if not selfish.

Wasn't it you who claimed illegals in the US were suffering from a policy of abuse in cases where said abuse had been reprimanded and was illegally undertaken? Now it seems your claiming what isn't legal cant be considered a policy, whereas there you strongly implied that if it had happened, or still happened, it was a policy even if illegal.

are you familiar with what short selling is? If so, you'd know that's not what i did. Not even remotely close.
