    Dogs, EM has to be one of the most volatile stocks out there. If they're making all these profits, it's not reflected in this insane market. Day traders of EM are either getting rich, or going broke on them in October.

    Well said Cogito, I wish I had some shares of EM, they must pay a good dividned. Your very correct as far as the unions taking your union dues and giving it to someone you don`t support. A perfect example of dirty money. The unions at one time ruled Detroit and the automobile business, not anymore and look what happened to Detroit, the big 3 are no longer. If Obama becomes President there isn`t a damn thing he can do to get Detroit back in the automobile business since they and all move to the southeren part of the US and work just fine without the unions. A fair wadge that all the workers are happy with.

    I own stock in big oil,so I'm glad their doing well. Nobody is forced to buy gas from Exxon/Mobil. EM just paid more taxes than any corporation in American history. Unions use money taken out of their members paychecks to give to politicians they don't support. That's dirty money.

    So it's OK for Lungren to take money from special interest OIL money. Unions are not all bad.Where do you get your facts? Lungren says he takes from the oil companies and says he would take more if he could.

    Cogito and EJ00114 you have received your instructions from the ref, now go to your cornor`s and come out swinging at the bell. I have never heard to differences of opinion concerning one man. If Durston is involved with as Cogito makes the claim, is in some way dirty with union money, the choice is clear for me, Lundgren by a KO.

    If a paper as liberal as the Bee recommends a candidate as conservative as Lundgren, that should tell you all you need to know about his opposition.

    Durston represents everything I despise in a candidate. The dirty union money is just the icing on the sewage. Lundgren gets my entire families vote.

    Galt deserves better representation, not Dan Lungren. He is a disgrace to his own party. I have canceled my Sac Bee due to their endorsement of this idiot. Even they couldn't say anything good about the man but support him anyway. The paper was filled with outrage our their choice. Lungren has never been challenged with a stronger candidate until DR Bill Durston entered the race. Durston would represent Galt better an a excellent choice.
