    that is ok,
    - just because YOU can't figure out the burden of proof, the courts can and that is how they rule
    - so those who try to follow the courts will have a better estimate of the effects of existing lawsuits and investigations

    actually given
    - the regulatory agencies and courts follow the law and case law,
    - I try to follow the laws and case laws and the process that they will follow
    - those who follow the law and case law will be closer in their estimations than those who do not

    so yes there is some expertise involved.- attempted snark by others notwithstanding

  • Walgreens Boots Alliance: M&A On The Way? [View article]
    If I might add a few comments

    Length, by itself, is not the measure. CONTENT is king. I have read short comments that were everywhere from terrible to great.

    Longer comments also can range in merit. The key to length over terse comments is that one can add detail to build the argument or add NUANCE as few things are black or white.

    kill the attitude

    you are now acting as badly as CBN

    I have consistently said that unless you follow the existing law, then any putative analysis will be unreliable.

    ANYONE can make claims, assertions, and accusations. The INVESTIGATORS will then look at those to see if they have merit ACCORDING TO THE EXISTING LAW, now what folks want the law to be.

    Indeed the court just dismissed the latest suit PRECISELY because the plaintiffs FAILED to meet their burden of proof. Herbalife WON that round, though the court gave the plaintiffs a small window to amend their case. The stock market rallied.

    You can say whatever you want within the rules of the board

    Others are free to point out your comments have flaws.

    Yet unless you use the correct law, case law, economics, and FACTS [not opinions], then any comment you make will NOT be what transpires except through random chance.

    Thus your comments are, at best, WORTHLESS for analysis.

    I can still be wrong and we should let the investigations fall out. Yet, I try to speak to the PROCESS that those investigators will take. So far the courts have agreed.

    It might be if I said something on the order of ALL folks who do A are B,

    but most IMPLIES that there is a middle ground of some. Indeed read more and see the comments about the original EPA and their success.

    but logic and reading are not your friends

    prove any allegation that the investigators are not doing their jobs or not following the law

    but first one would have to know what the EXISTING laws are instead of what you WANT them to be

    I think everyone has noticed that you are not trying to find agreement with reality either

    "HLF wrote:
    "All the NEW Regs will work in Herbalife's favor."

    Not sure about that, but in a round about way, if the current investigations lead to nothing more then a hand slap, that would be an implied Gov. blessing, so yea, they would ultimately be in HLF's favor"

    - if you had stopped here then most everyone would agree with you

    "because they are allowed to continue the scam." - presumes it is a scam CURRENTLY which has not been proven and

    of course "if the current investigations lead to nothing but a hand slap" IT WOULD NOT BE PROVEN

    if they cannot differentiate from the legal MLM and the illegal pyramid schemes then yes they are CLUELESS and should not be relied upon.

    Would that be the same person at the SBA who was clueless and who you relied upon?

    Lots of good things are good in moderation, nor is regulation bad in and of itself.

    The ORIGINAL EPA as proposed by Nixon has had a huge positive impact on the US. Yet it has metastasized into something far beyond its origins.

    The mis-logic of the excluded middle raises its ugly head with false dichotomies and strawman arguments

    unfortunately for that scenario,
    - is that Obama has restricted the exploration on government lands
    - has tried to restrict fracking and other techniques for boosting production
    - the PRIVATE SECTOR found more in spite of him and his regulatory climate
