Let’s be clear on one thing. The Obama administration and their Congressional allies seem to have forgotten that they created this problem with their wild spending in the first two years of this administration.
The radical environmental movement, aided and abetted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, are engaged in a War on Coal as an energy source in the United States.

I am always amazed by the way some people manage to deny facts and then somehow get attention and even a measure of legitimacy for their bizarre views. People that deny the Holocaust have obviously never sat on a beach in Brooklyn in the 1960s and seen the purple numbers tattooed on the arms of old people [...]...More

BIG looks weak on the chart combined with a sell-off in the stock-
market, WMT, and DLTR I think that BIG is headed lower. BIG is
trading below the the 150 and 200 DMA and I do not think it is going
to puncture the $40 level.

It seems that when we try to fight that set point through rigid weight-loss methods, the body rebels by craving the foods we’re trying to avoid. This can lead to the familiar yo-yo cycles of dieting and splurging that play havoc with our weight and health.
