  • Coca-Cola not taking Ackman criticism lying down [View news story]
    To all who disagree with my statement I wish you well and I respect you views.

    However I am much more that a person on a social rant....I am a victim of this systematic poisoning. Whenever a company knowingly infuses a product with so much of a harmful ingredient far exceeding the U.S. RDA for women and men and most others who use it there is something very wrong and it needs a strong public airing everywhere.

    It is different if you do something knowingly to harm yourself and you are aware of the dangers, you are right choice, no disagreement at all. Smoking today would be a good example. The case here is that for far to long no one was aware of the harmfulness of these products and these products where deliberately made harmful for almost everyone who uses them just for the sake of more sales. Company's like this are morally and ethically wrong and the unsuspecting innocents who will be suffering the long lasting health consequences have a right to know on every type of forum available. The government whose job it is to protect and warn of these types of products has been SILENT FOR FAR TO LONG! Is it for PAC's or jobs or other gatutious actions? Thats why this post belongs on SA and everywhere else that it can be seen or heard.

    It truly is a part of business and a businesses' conduct to enhance shareholder value and the methods it will go to to achieve that end deserve a hearing on SA.

    Dear BAHAMAS1

    Who made you SA's site administrator and censor? Or should I say BULLY!

    Do yourself a favor and never bother to tell me what to write on this site or any other until you can measure up and get the authority to do so!

    Free speech... perhaps YOU should move elsewhere where it's not allowed......try China, you might look good on some poster.

    If you do not like my statements why don't you try writing a constructive article of your own about these "wondrous products" if you are able, and all the good they do for the children of this world.

    I hope this ends our little conversation because if you have nothing constructive to say except threats you are not worth my time or anyone else's'.

    Good night, Sir.

    THANK YOU! Bill Ackman and Mayor Bloomberg of New York.

    What a rotten harmful company Coke is. Some of their products have more sugar or sugar alcohols in them than the U.S. RDA for a man or woman.
    The World Health Organization is dropping its sugar intake recommendations from 10 percent of your daily calorie intake to 5 percent.

    For an adult of a normal body mass index (BMI), that works out to about 6 teaspoons -- or 25 grams -- of sugar per day. There are 12 in some cans of Coke.

    Their very harmful products offer no other benefits but an overload of sugar poisons...and that's what to much sugar or sugar alcohol is... a poison!

    Coke and the other soda company's know this but they are willing to kill you to sell you one more lousy bottle of soda.

    The FDA is to blame here also. Just because a product is legal should not give a company a free hand to abuse it and overdose it in a product to the point it is harmful to consumers. The FDA should be protecting children, the elderly, and the general population from this type of abuse....NOT the mayor of N.Y. or people like Bill Ackman. The FDA after careful research sets RDA's so they know these products are harmful and yet they stand idly by and do nothing to correct the problem except feed the poor unsuspecting public their brand of pabulum.

    But as we all know Coke and the other garbage pushers have to much money and many powerful people in their POCKETS who are willing to turn a blind eye as millions of people are slowly and systemically destroyed every day all over the world from these harmful toxic products. Omaha ought to make a strong statement and ..SELL!

    Important to remember...Any company that will hurt you once on purpose will always seek to hurt you again for the sake of a sale. They just wait until some reforms happen and than look for their opening again. Coke, long ago synonymous with cocaine is just such a company. Stay away from all of these products and company's for the rest of your life. Your health is worth it and their junk is not. Irreversible health damage along with all of the accompanying pain
    will make a person regret ever ingesting any of this garbage. The feel good high sensation will be long gone but the debilitation and pain will be there to remind you of your poor choices for as long as you live.

  • Philly city council nixes $1.86B sale of gas utility to UIL [View news story]
    Rate payers you are smart to stay away from UIL unless you want to pay the highest rates for electricity in the country just like we do in Connecticut.

    That my friends is ultra poor management for the consumer. that is exactly what our rates say.

    This is the kind of company that helps drive business and jobs away, just look at Ct's high costs....and electricity is one of them. BEWARE!

    Most of the country pays far, far less for the same kind of electricity.

    Time for you to elect a new mayor. Maybe he can get a job with UIL.

  • Moody's cuts Russia's sovereign debt rating [View news story]
    This is what happens when people have a leader who knows very little about economics.

    Russia has such a vast store of material assets.....So much they bring in billions and billions and still more than enough left to build a great economic/industrial world class powerhouse rivaling any nation on earth. A huge land mass to expand and grow on, great barriers to overcome to showcase a world class leaders talents as the Russian people grow and prosper, a leader they could look-up to and admire.

    Instead, what do these types of leaders do..... with their lack of understanding, they always go for the small prizes and destruction and death.

    What a shame, there was a time when I thought his candle had a chance to burn brightly for the greater good. And now all he offers is a waste of time as he let's his golden opportunity slip by to someone else and gets remembered by history as a failure if he continues to go down his current path. This has been proven time and time again.

    Let us thank our Lord for OSHA in the 'Good-O-USA' where dust control is under close supervision for just this reason. Cost's more sure, but we go home to our family's.

    I think most people can read between the lines what's being said here.

    Ichan is right.
    When common stocks are the only game in town it can not end well. We all really know this.
