| Political Talk|| Cop Kills Suspect Sitting in Car... Update: Not officers first shooting - Lsut81 on 1/10/15 at 9:03 am|
This cop needs to be charged immediately for this BS... The cop did nothing to try to defuse the situation and the suspect did absolutely NOTHING to warrant lethal force.
This is far more outrageous than either Garner or Brown... If people want to protest something, this should be it.
| Money Talk|| Better Play: Oil or Energy Fund? - Lsut81 on 1/7/15 at 5:39 am|
With crude as low as it is, what is a smarter semi long term play? Would you throw money at Oil alone or would you buy into an energy fund like VGENX.
Would ideally hold either until there was a 50% increase. So Oil up to $75/barrel or VGENX up to $75/share...
