Apple Corporation looks very attractive under $100 a share

Apple has long been a leader in innovative technology.  AAPL stock has traded much higher prices in the past, and probably will retest those highs around $200 at some point in the future.  Great investments are made at times of weakness into corporations that should be part of the solution.   Apple has great capacity to improve people’s lives around the world in a sustainable way.  I-phones are a revolutionary cell phone that is a great resource to owners.  Offering all the features of a phone, music player, and small personal assistant.  Including access to the Internet.  The idea that schools would cut payments to buy computers over payments to retired teachers , and law enforcement is pathetic in Topstockblog’s opinion.  Particularly to retirees’ with new jobs, and large savings.  Wake up America!  Make sure all children have access to technology.   Profit measures are inappropriate over relied on when valuing corporations like AAPL who have the ability to build a much better world.

Responsible government ideas, lower taxation

The government has an obligation to pursue a course of business similar to that of a corporation in an effort to protect the people, reduce fruad, and promote a successful society.  Reduced taxation is needed to maintain a global competitiveness, and follow our developed understanding of the course of evolution.    With government ownership in business fruad can be greatly reduced, and eliminated possible.   On the other hand,  high rates of taxation; led by greed, results in predictable destruction.

  Corruption related concerns, and known benefits of a steady hand in developing a society must be acknowledged.  George Bush, and many other people have failed in life to do their best respecting others.  The possibility that many people in government do not have the people in mind must be addressed.  The government should only be granted $100 billion dollars at a time.   $100 dollars is a lot of money to the majority of people around the globe.   $100 billion dollars is a good number to start with moving the economy to a more stable position.  Money in the hands of a few suspect characters or corporations will surely insure more of the same predictable destructive forces that led us here.  The allowance of dividends to be paid with government money is ridiculous.     Lower taxes should be accompanied by government ownership or participation in joint projects to most efficiently meet the needs of the world.   Cooperation to reduce interest payments of the United States of America, and to most effectively reduce predictable disfuntion in the future for the world as a whole is a good idea. 

  When profit rates of corporations dip below zero in a purely capitalist society taxation moves to zero.  Yet consumers are still expected to pay property taxes even when they have lost thier job or personal circumstances prevent them from doing so. The clear benefits of working with nations around the world  can be achieved.   With consumers tapped out, and tax collections declining the world as a whole loses.  If we work together with an understanding that society as a whole can grow together.  Through honest effort we can work to resolve important issues of all people.  We can work towards a healthy world working towards honest goals.

Congress Representative Kirsten Gillibrand and the Public Forum Institute hosted economic summit on energy, and technology opportunities in New York

The 2008 economic summit was a great experience, and well attended at the Gideon Putnam Hotel.  The conference brought together influential people interested in economics of the region.   I learned about some interesting opportunities.   New windows that save great deals of energy in each installed house, and the strength of the windows was a highlight that stands out in my mind.  Classes on  gaining access to capital, and how to employ existing capital in the New York region.   Wind Farms can be created, and are being created.  

 

(8/21/2008) Congress Representative Kirsten Gilibrand of the 20th District of Upstate New York is proving to be a strong member.  The government website linked above documents and provides links to much of the hard work she has put into action since she took office.   Kirsten Gillibrand, and The Public Forum Institute is hosting an economic forum in September to discuss ideas to build a bright future for the region.  Topstockblog is very happy about receiving an invitation to the event and will let readers know more after attending the event.

Should congress prosecute Karl Rove the brain of George W. Bush?

Democrats.com supports prosecuted Karl Rove and switching away from ATT phone services.  I have attached an impressive list of sources included in the email.  Toptsockblog like takes a bearish position on ATT going forward.  A friend was sold the stock through soliciation over the phone at much higher prices in the IPO that was well over priced.

—– Below Sources cited in Democrats.com newsletter  to support claims ——

Sources:

1) Just a few weeks ago, CREDO teamed up with Brave New Films to help deliver more than 120,000 signatures to House Judiciary Committee members, calling on them to hold Rove in contempt and arrest him if necessary to compel his sworn testimony.

Some people believe Karl Rove should be prosecuted for criminal crimes.
Topstockblog is not sure on the best course forward. An investigation seems like a step in the right direction. Certainly political activism like reading and or discussing tough topics would be helpful. Can we really expect government to do all the policing if the peole do not care or take the time to care? does believe in governing using methods from the 1800’s. Comedian Ben Stien calls Karl Rove a good friend and describes Karl as good hearted. Topstockblog believes an appology from Karl Rove to the world would be appropriate.  Karl is said to have been part of a conspiracy Topstockblog recently watched on a plan that ws formed by the rich and elite to control the world forever with little concern for others.  Again, mistakenly a few individuals had innapropriate influence over important details in the economy with out concern for the people.   ignorant did not account for principles of technology, innovation, and intelligence to be able to do more with less while taking other complex variables into account to maximize satisfaction while minimizing harm. For example a basic principle of doctors of do no harm could be brought into all industries to increase the friendlyness of our economy.
Just because strategies of trickery used during the 1800’s worked in business, doesn’t mean we should not work to find better ways. The world needs to work to find ways we can work towards solving problems in the most positive way. Setting minimum standards and aiming towards other appropriate standards.
Democrats.com is an aggressive website targeting illegal, inappropriate, and other bad intentioned behavior that has gone on in Washington D.C.

Barrack Obama should choose Senator Patrick Leahy from Vermont to be vice president

Barrack Obama is in search of the next possible Vice President of the United States.

Topstockblog thinks Barack Obama will select senator Patrick Leahy from Vermont to be his Vice President.   Topstockblog has sent letters to many senators around the nation to help solve and prevent major problems in America.  Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont has communicated back personally, and recently shared his intentions to keep Topstockblogs words in mind, when negotiated with Iraq’s government on policiy going forward with the intention of Iraq taking responsibility .  Senator Leahy was effective in getting millions of dollars in cash immediately handed out to the Iraqi people to meet daily living needs for food, water, and housing.  Followed by Iraq spending 47 billion dollars  or roughly just under half the money Iraq had saved up from oil sales.  Spending the money effectively ended the war because the people and the world gained enough trust in the governments intention to support the people and use the oil money for good.   Serving to reduce political corruption, ensure money in Iraq is spendable, and eliminate the terrorist ability to use war to drive America broke.  Senator Leahy is a great asset to America.     Al Gore together with Barrack Obama would put a solid duo in the White House.   Al Gore has previously stated he is not interested in the position.  Maybe, Al Gore would be open to some part time communication with the White House?  Barrack Obama shows a tremendous ability to learn, listen, and communicate effectively.  

 Obama seeks info on Dodd in vice president search
“Dodd, 64, is a five-term senator with a lengthy foreign policy resume. A fluent speaker of Spanish,  served in the Peace Corps and has had a strong interest in Latin American affairs throughout his career. A longtime member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he’s been able to wield a heavy influence on U.S. involvement in the region.” Quote taken from the above link 7/11/08

Maybe Hillary Clinton could end up being the next vice president? No news reports on this subject since early June.  Hillary Clinton put her full support behind Barrack Obama for president of the United States of America with former president Bill Clinton in tow.

Jamaica proving to be the fastest humans; Topstockblog sponsors 2nd child through Christian’s Children’s Fund.

 

 !Congratulations Jamicai!  Beijing, China –
The Jamaica track team is having a very strong performance at the 2008 Summer Olympics.   Shelly Ann Fraser won the women’s gold medal followed by teammates dead heating for the silver.  She is beautiful.  check out joyous picture at Yahoo Sports.

 

Topstockblog sponsored a 2nd child through Christians Childrens fund.  Topstockblog is now the proud sponsor of a handsome and intelligent 7 year old young man from Northern Vietnam.  His community has a vast number of needs that often go unmet.  He lives in a community that follows Thai belief system.  To raise True ( American translation) out of poverty I have to help his whole community.   True goes to school almost every day in his community.  The school is very poor, and has no electricity or water flow.  Topstockblog is very excited about this opportunity to help True, and his community.   Looking forward to learning more about his life, and culture.  I sent his community $500 dollars to help meet needs.  I sent $24 a month paid for the next six months, and $200 for the community to use to buy goats for breeding.   Goats are a tough animal that adapt to many conditions, easy to raise, and sell quickly.  Topstockblog bought Sandra’s family some goats over the years, and this is helping Sandra’s family out greatly.
In my seven year experience with Christians Children’s fund it has been wonderful. Most positive experience of my life. My first child Sandra is ten years old. She lives near Mexico City, and currently enoying being a ten year old kid.  Sandra, and her family express their thanks in writing, and through good actions.  All leters are translated free of charge, and typed neatly with the original letter.  Accounting standards are hight at Christian’s Childrens Fund.  I recieve pictured documentation of all the supplies + holiday gifts I have bought Sandra over the years.  I am very proud to help her family live a better life.  Her parents work very hard, and make good choices.  Sandra wants to be a school teacher when she gets older.  I hope to share more in the future about my experience with my sponsored children with respect for their privacy.

Georgia should make peace, Russia should re-explain the military actions.

 

(Update 8./20/2008 – Russia still has yet to figure out how to go forward with Georgia.  Russia and concerned citizen’s around the world world the United States government is biased against Russia.  Topstockblog asks readers what is best going forward for evolution?  Topstockblog has no idea; but, a careful guess tells me Russia should establish some kind of comprehensive understanding with the United States on reducing bias.  For example congress may be responding to filtered data provided by the executive branch on the subject.  An honest senator may well have voted for the war in Iraq regretable because of filtered data.  Honest leaders, careful communication, hard work, technology, people, and innovation all should play a part in resolving the conflict.  )

(Update 8/15/2008 – Russia explains that Georgia has been posturing, and speaking aggressively about the military plans towards Russia.  Topstockblog reafirms it’s support to Russia, and to work with Russia.  Russian diplomat expressed a strong willingness to work with the United States to meet challenges of the world, and a firm respect for the United States.)

Google has deleted Georgia maps indicating Russia has won the war annexing Georgia.  Topstockblog supports the Russian move to take over the geographically desirable land of Georgia.  Georgia will bring a beautiful part of ocean front property to Russia.  This move greatly increases Russia’s ability to be a lasting world power.   The move is aggressive.  The territory is historically under Russian rule is in part why Topstockblog stands behind the aggressive Russian military excercise.

  The move does violate international aggreements.  I encourage Russia to come forward with an intelligent explanation for the decision to take over Georgia.   Topstockblog stands firmly against evil intentions; please explain your actions Russia.

Daily excercise suggestions for all

Any exercise is better than none at all.  Finding the time to take care of your body will have a positive impact on your life, and the people around you.

Getting in good physical shape is a challenge. With busy schedules, air conditioning, and conveniences it is easy to see how people become over weight.  In fact getting in any type of shape at all is a mystery to millions of Americans. As my father would say “being over weight is something I understand.”

In Topstockblog tradition I found some exercise websites to share.   This exercises/health website has a nice article on Daily excercise suggestions for adults.

 Video Jug offers free video’s on a variety of work outs, and a number of other subjects.

Ask Men the benefits of Aerobic exercises to burn more fat. Ask Men boasts over 5 million readers a month.

Plyometric excercise is always something Topstockblog has wanted to learn more about.  About.com offers some insight in Plyometric excercise is used by high level atheletes to improve athletic performance.

Womens’ Health Magazine online looks like a great website for the latest exercise tips.   The website site is very funtional, comprehensive on the subject of fitness, health, and diet.   Men and women can benefit from this website.
