    Can you share some of those inaccuracies and/or the source that covers them.

    There may soon be many weapons to take on this beast. Of course identified folks still need treatment which is in short supply in Africa still but this is positive news.

    Awesome news.

    Hopefully it will not test negative if the virus mutates a bit. Sorry, military mind always looking for the weakest point in a strategy. Even so however its light years ahead of what we have now. I would assume they would be monitoring that issue if they begin to use these.

    Doc might be able to answer that type of question.

    MJ, "Breadth and depth of sources is the only way to arrive at our own independent conclusions."

    Well said.

    I have posted things are here but will sometimes mention it has not been verified from a second source or I am skeptical. I like to have multiple sources but keep one thing in mind. I have seen many sources report something but all those sources refer back to the same original source. That is not necessarily a verified data point for me and I have been caught by that trap more than once.

    If you ever doubt SNOPES here is another website that does the same thing.

    Stretch that first date back to 2000 and then look at that graph.

    How many of those homes were foreclosed homes. Earlier this year it was running at a 3 year high. That is not a sign of a good economy.

    "The talking heads reading their teleprompter propaganda machines failed to mention that distressed sales (short sales & foreclosure sales) rose to a three year high of 16.2% of all U.S. residential sales, up from 14.5% in 2012. The economy has been supposedly advancing for over four years and sales of distressed homes are at 16.2% and rising.

    The bubble headed bimbos on CNBC don’t find it worthwhile to mention that prior to 2007 the normal percentage of distressed home sales was less than 3%. Yeah, we’re back to normal alright.

    We are five years into a supposed economic recovery and distressed home sales account for 1 out of 6 all home sales and is still 500% higher than normal."

    Full link from the "Mighty Quinn" at the burning platform.

    Finally, never trust NAR. They have lied in the past. Their commissions count on rising home prices so they might have an incentive to manipulate those numbers just a teeny tiny bit.

    http://bit.ly/12q7qCj

    Finally at the below link from RealtyTrac this link states that the percentage of foreclosures is running at 13.6% still in July 2014. Also note that the huge blue graph on your link as compared to the blue bar link on the link below.......well someones manipulating the data or the chart to make it appear things are really looking up.

    Since NARs paycheck depends on that info....I would say we can safely point to the culprits.

    You could not have proven my point about manipulation any better.

    OK LT, you claim stuff is not manipulated then you tell me that the boomers are 55% of the population. Common core math or a manipulated number.

    Your a smart guy but this quote of yours should have been a big red flag....55% of the population!!!

    Your comment included: "The boomers are 55% of the population,...."


    Facts from the link below:

    "These 76.4 million baby boomers represent close to one-quarter of the estimated 2012 U.S. population of 314 million."

    I hope you just made a mistake or possibly you can write off that source as manipulated. What was that source. I am curious.

    Mark, I am just hoping that it is a crazy myth but there are FEMA camps all over this country. They could be going to any one of them. Just waiting for confirmation.

    I used to completely dismiss this type of news but to much of it has come true so now I read about it and look for something to substantiate it....but remain aware of the possibility in case I have to react to something before the mob gets wind of it. If you wait till then you could be trapped in a big cluster and its too late....your trapped.

    Initial jobless claims rise 17K but apparently they are manipulated.

    Watch the participation rate to get a better idea of what is going on.

    I think if the elections go the Republicrats way there might be a bounce up. Not sure how long that will last but it might happen. There I said it!!! Now it won't because I said it. Murphy hit me with your best shot.

    Since its more likely than not I have my broker putting a bit more cash to work before the election but ready to pull back out after. I feel like I am at Vegas every day I look at the stock charts (roulette table).
