Amir Taheri Frames Obama's Islam Naivete Quite Well - RedStickBR
I agree with everything Mr. Taheri has said here. It appears President Obama is embracing political correctness for the sake of political correctness, and with very little effort made to actually understand the various sides of the debate. Political correctness is an ideal Obama believes should be a...

Boston Victim: What I Learned From Losing My Leg - RedStickBR
I honestly don't know how I'd feel if I were in this woman's position. I severely doubt I'd be able to be this strong. This is an amazing read. http://www.vox.com/2015/2/3/7963093/boston-marathon-survivor...

For context, roundtrip to Paris from a small, non-international airport in the US in the peak of summer is about 60k miles, so the 50k is significant, especially since you get it for about 90 bucks....

From the TOS: [quote]Bonus Dividend Miles: Fifty thousand (50,000) bonus miles will be awarded in the first billing cycle in which you have made a purchase or balance transfer (that is not later returned or rescinded) and your Annual Fee has been paid if applicable. There is a fee for Balance Tr...

re: Money Talk Reunion Thread - RedStickBR
I just don't even think it's almost always predictable. Even though the supply side can be forecasted, short-term demand is almost entirely due to weather, which is inherently unpredictable, at least in any sort of fundamental value sort of understanding. Sure, we can make long-term demand projectio...

re: Anyone use the U.S. Airways Premier World MasterCard? - RedStickBR
I'm transferring a small balance from an existing card which I think qualifies as a purchase. Does the annual fee appear within your existing balance or what? I want to pay it ASAP so I can use the points for a flight but don't see an option to pay the annual fee yet. ETA: I just opened the accou...

Anyone use the U.S. Airways Premier World MasterCard? - RedStickBR
This is easily the best sky miles deal I've ever seen. Sign up, make a purchase (even a de minimis amount, which is what differentiates it from other cards) or transfer a balance, pay the annual fee, and you get 50k miles. For anyone who has used this card, when does the annual fee become payabl...

re: No Topic on SASOL? - RedStickBR
You've got the crude oil futures curve still showing $50s on the bid all the way out to 2023. While we all know how wrong futures can be, I also don't think SASOL wants to be in the business of trying to outsmart the market. They've got to adjust based on current information. Do we have any idea wha...

re: No Topic on SASOL? - RedStickBR
I believe the delay is associated with the GTL project, as Flask mentioned. With the drop in oil prices, it's not as economic anymore to convert natural gas into gasoline. This isn't an LNG export project, to my understanding....

I was sold on McGregor when I saw the sports testing they did on him. Better balance than a professional surfer, faster hip speed than Rory, and can land kicks with twice as much force in the same amount of time it takes him to land a punch....
