so I added in a new line of slogans as a hedge on the biblical prohecies, we want to get a foot in before the prophets of doom send in the plagues of locusts at least. I reckon we're back into stonemason territory here.
1: "Life begins at 50" 2: "I didn't take Rami's advice..." 3: "The BOI 50 cent event" 4: "I passed the BIR stress test!" 5: "I bought the right pillar" 6: "My little FKIR just turned 50!" 7: "Holy ****! I held until Mulligans!" 8: "If you think I'm smart...you should meet our CEO" 9: "My other bank failed..." 10: "I took LSE every day until I turned 50" 11: "Thanks Richie", on the back "Thanks Wilbur!" 12: "Anybody seen Agro's Undies?" 13: "50 shades of gain" 14: "Halfway to a Hundred" 15: "BOI: the only 50 worth celebrating" 16: "The pints are on Richie...." 17: "My little BOI 50, she's rapid and she's nifty" 18: "I think it's time for a poem...." 19: "Sell BIR and buy shares in Noah's Ark, before the deluge..."....Ezekiel 7:19 20: "Renounce thine earthly wares at 50c and ask Wilbur what's next"...Doughnuts 5:1-5
well, our little FKIR doesn't seem to have dropped like a stone to the .24c levels. I wondered why. I think it could be because it defies logic. So, there isn't really much in the way of news (good or bad) coming out or due until next year when the results are out. So, it will probably keep trucking along towards that .32 or .33 level from now until Christmas, then drop like a stone when they release their amazing shock and awe results. Hopefully after that we can have a period of no news which will help it steadily recover.
I don't think it would be right of me to comment solely on the BKIR share price, as that is basically off topic these days. I don't think the world is such a bad place, however I think that if religion and money took slightly more of a backseat it would probably be a better place though. The little money I've made has been made ethically, the money I will hopefully make from BKIR will be used to spend more time with the family which I don't see as a bad thing.
Thank you for taking the words out of my mouth - an excellent reflection on the poverty of ambition present in some our current mega multi nationals and politicians.
Trading in weapons of destruction especially in the hands of some of our third world neighbours, is beneath contempt usually excused by somebody saying "but if we didn't supply them the Russians would" or the Chinese or the Israeli's who gave us all the Uzzi or the South Africans or the French.
Why do they do it - MONEY - once the bullets start to fly, who has questioned how much they cost along with the other weapons that are traded all over the middle east. We all know this is a wicked trade and what is left afterwards a country like Gaza which has no hope at all of recovery unless they are helped.
Gosh this subject has got my blood pressure rising mostly because like so many others I am powerless to effect it.
I was pleased to note that at least one of our premium contributors has recently "been saved" and now believes that usery is evil - it has been for 2000 years but it still keeps raising its ugly head.
Absolutely.... never wanted to overlook or disrespect good folk who do so much for others in many ways. Volunteers for the Ebola fight for instance. Unfortunately those kind don't seek / get into or stay in power.
Some interesting points and perspectives there.....thanks
.....and Allmoyne. I must add that one to my repertoire.
We have now discussed almost everything here, there is not much left to say but there will always be problems, wars, trouble, greed etc. we will not cease to be shocked by the continuous de generation of society, absence of good and presence of greed.
On the other hand there is also a lot of good in the world, more good than there was 100 years ago when people died young because there were no cure for diseases that can easily be cured today. There is an endless stream of good people who risk all to help the needy such as those with Ebola.
In my view the likes of Isis are a kin to the plunderers of old but they have better weapons and the media.
There are still people who give their lives to help the less privileged and there are those who try to right the wrongs of the past.
I do think however that the abuse of children at the hands of the church, state, war and those in power ranks as a serious issue as it destroys innocence, hope and dreams and in later life leaves the abused with no where to turn except to drink to wipe away the pain that's left to fill the vacuum.
How can it be that do many are blind to the plight of the Syrian children ?
Im not sure how useful quoting john lennons lyrics is to your argument though. Exceptional song writer but hardly a prophet. aspiring to a better world than the one we live now is nothing new and would be a common theme for many since the beginning of time. Its the promise, hope or dream of a better tomorrow that keeps many going.
What we have now is no different than what has always gone before. There has been and always will be an opposite to every side of the coin. Its just the simple progression of this world. Our time here is no more than a speck of dust in the sands of time . I'm not sure believing in a prophesy makes any difference. What we have now isn't even close to perfect. Its just a tiny step in the progress of the human race. It will change because it always does. The system isn't broken really, it's just shifting again. Not that long ago we as a race believed we would fall of the edge of the world if we sailed east. Now we can land a robot on a moving target a billion miles away. Its just natural progression. That progression may ultimately lead to our own destruction but it will have little to do with john lennon or Ezekiel. Its just life.
I think everyone has had a foreboding feeling for quite some time now. There are events unfolding in the world now that scare me. Attitudes are changing. Morals are not what they were. And I am not talking about the the moderate changes my generation went through that shocked our parents, I am talking about the lack of decency and respect that is abundant nowadays. I think there is also a lot of choas in the world. The rise of ISIS and their despicable lack of respect for human life. Israel and the trouble in the holy land. Russias activities and blatent lies. Drug gangs in Mexico killing students. Police in the states shooting defenseless victims. Wars, weapons of mass destruction, Ebola, swine flue, the twin towers. And I agree that money is the root of all evil. I have never really thought about rapture before. I suppose people who lived through concentration camps thought that the end of humanity had come in their time too. I do agree that we need to heed the bible. It regulates human behaviour, Moderates violence and concentrates the mind. Christmas is a good time for new beginnings.
