    I heard someone on CNBC (grain of salt please), say they expected the export ban to be lifted in the 4th quarter and this will hurt the refiners.

  • Report: K+S asks German government to fend off Potash takeover [View news story]
    The fascist bargain goes something like this. The state says to the industrialist, “You may stay in business and own your factories. In the spirit of cooperation and unity, we will even guarantee you profits and a lack of serious competition. In exchange, we expect you to agree with — and help implement — our political agenda.

    Fascism, at its core, is the view that every nook and cranny of society should work together in spiritual union toward the same goals overseen by the state. “Everything in the state, nothing outside the state,” is how Mussolini defined it. Mussolini coined the word “totalitarian” to describe not a tyrannical society but a humane one in which everyone is taken care of and contributes equally.

    The major flaw in all of this is that fascism, properly understood, is not a phenomenon of the right at all. Instead, it is, and always has been, a phenomenon of the left. This fact — an inconvenient truth if there ever was one — is obscured in our time by the equally mistaken belief that fascism and communism are opposites. In reality, they are closely related, historical competitors for the same constituents.

    Same stuff, both left, Obamacare is fascist right now, until the gov't takes over, then it will be socialist. Either way gov't controls, just take the memos sent to each insurance company who got out of line as an example. Now the insurance companies are all merging until there's only 3 or 4 big ones, then even more control from gov't, until they (government) start talking about "lowering overhead" and "eliminating the middleman", then complete gov't control. Right now they can blame insurance company greed for any problems, it's convenient........for now.

    Bunch of damn socialist fascists. Why doesn't Canada take K+S's mine in Canada for the "common good" then? Reminds me of that time an Amercian company tried to buy Dannon yogurt and the French rebuffed the offer and called Dannon "A Crown Jewel" of France........it's friggin' yogurt for God's sake.

    So you're fully ok with a dictator instead of a president, because that is what you'll eventually get, and it will work when a republican is in office too.

    Yes, you must be referring to that secret part of the Constitution that says if congress doesn't do what the president wants then he can go ahead and take executive action.

    WASHINGTON — President Obama has issued a form of executive action known as the presidential memorandum more often than any other president in history — using it to take unilateral action even as he has signed fewer executive orders.

    When these two forms of directives are taken together, Obama is on track to take more high-level executive actions than any president since Harry Truman battled the "Do Nothing Congress" almost seven decades ago, according to a USA TODAY review of presidential documents.

    In a Sept. 23, 2009, email, Mr. Gruber emailed Ms. Lambrew saying “pharma is going to be a huge winner from this bill—maybe $15 billion/year in incremental revenue. Any way to go after them harder for financing?”

    Here's an investing tip from someone who is definitely not the architect of Obamacare.

    The White House has described Mr. Gruber as having a limited role in crafting the law. President Barack Obama in 2014 said Mr. Gruber was “some adviser who never worked on our staff.” Mr. Gruber told Congress last year he disagreed with the widespread characterization of his role as the “architect” of Mr. Obama’s health-care plan.

    “Thank you for being an integral part of getting us to this historic moment,” according to Sept. 9, 2009 email to Mr. Gruber from Jeanne Lambrew, a top Obama administration health adviser who worked at HHS and the White House. In a November 2009 email, she called Mr. Gruber “our hero.”

    Mr. Gruber received nearly $400,000 from HHS for his work focusing on health-policy computer models, according to public records.

    Factcheck.org, that's cute. Gruber was right about the stupidity of the American voter.

    The "intent" was to blackmail states to set up their own exchanges or not get any of the money that they paid in:

    “What’s important to remember politically about [Obamacare] is if you’re a state and you don’t set up an exchange, that means your citizens don’t get their tax credits—but your citizens still pay the taxes that support this bill. So you’re essentially saying [to] your citizens you’re going to pay all the taxes to help all the other states in the country. I hope that that’s a blatant enough political reality that states will get their act together and realize there are billions of dollars at stake here in setting up these exchanges. But, you know, once again the politics can get ugly around this.”-Jonathan Gruber

    It doesn't get any more obvious what the "intent" was.

    Ummm, more people showed up in emergency rooms after passage. People who get free healthcare paid for by someone who is not themselves really don't have any reason not to go to the emergency room, why make an appointment? It's free.
