They made his day.



"Yo, Junior, what are you doing?" That was one of Philly's finest to a young man who has been all over the news in my fair city for openly packing heat on a Philly street. Mr. Fiorino taped the entire encounter and Philly's finest didn't come out looking so good.

Sadly, they (the po po) weren't familiar with Philly's law as it relates to concealed weapons on city streets. (Yes, I know it's confusing and a little vague, but a police officer, of all people, should be familiar with it. You can carry openly if you have a license to do so.)

"On a mild February afternoon, Fiorino, 25, decided to walk to an AutoZone on Frankford Avenue in Northeast Philly with the .40-caliber Glock he legally owns holstered in plain view on his left hip. His stroll ended when someone called out from behind: "Yo, Junior, what are you doing?"

Fiorino wheeled and saw Sgt. Michael Dougherty aiming a handgun at him.

What happened next would be hard to believe, except that Fiorino audio-recorded all of it: a tense, profanity-laced, 40-minute encounter with cops who told him that what he was doing - openly carrying a gun on the city's streets - was against the law.

"Do you know you can't openly carry here in Philadelphia?" Dougherty asked, according to the YouTube clip."Yes, you can, if you have a license to carry firearms," Fiorino said. "It's Directive 137. It's your own internal directive."

The cops, department officials later admitted, were wrong. They didn't know that a person who has a license to carry a firearm can openly carry it in the city.

But the story doesn't end there. How could it?

After Fiorino posted his recordings on YouTube, they went viral. Members of pro-firearms forums on the Web took a particular interest in the incident.


The Police Department heard about the YouTube clips. A new investigation was launched, and last month the District Attorney's Office decided to charge Fiorino with reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct because, a spokeswoman said, he refused to cooperate with police.

Fiorino said he plans to sue the city whenever his criminal case is resolved.

Police spokesman Lt. Ray Evers said the department believes that Fiorino wanted to get into a confrontation with cops, that he wanted to see them lose their cool so he later could file a lawsuit.

Or, as one cop was overheard saying on the YouTube recording: "He set us the f--- up, that's what the f--- he did."

Terrified to be powerless
Fiorino, an IT worker who lives in Montgomery County, grew up in Feltonville.

A handful of his friends fell victim to random crimes over the years - a mugging here, a beatdown there, the kind of stuff that happens all the time in a big city.

It was enough to make him think about being able to protect himself if he ever ran into trouble. "It would be terrifying to me to be powerless," he said.

So, about a year ago, Fiorino said, he got a firearms license and began openly carrying his .40-caliber Glock.

"I did research for quite a few years leading up to making a decision to carry," he said. "I was ready to take on the responsibility."

His gun went with him everywhere - to the store, you name it.

After he began carrying, Fiorino said, he was stopped a handful of times by cops in Montgomery County and other parts of the state. The encounters were civil and quick, he said, and usually ended when an officer checked out his firearms license.

He also had encounters with Philadelphia cops last year near the Philadelphia Museum of Art and on South Street.

"Both times they told me what I was doing was illegal," he said. "They patted me down and said, 'We don't care what you consent to.'

"The second time, they did an official confiscation, and it took me five months to get back my gun." [More]



Mr. Fiorino, your ass is lucky to be alive. And why were you "terrified to be powerless"? Have you ever been a victim of a crime? I bet not. Yes, you can openly carry in Philly, but you must seriously have a death wish to do some dumb s&^% like that. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you have to do it. Look, I know you want to be a hero to the NRA crowd, so you leave home with your tape recorder running while looking for an incident. I am glad you have that luxury, but just remember, cops here have lost a few of their own, and they tend to be a little itchy with the trigger. So you might want to save your little social experiment for town where there are less killings every year.



The next time you go to the corner store conceal your weapon and don't go thinking you are Clint Eastwood playing out some damn Spaghetti Western. You recorded it all on tape, but that tape recorder wouldn't have stopped Michael Dougherty's bullet from putting a hole in your chest.




Oh well "Junior", you are going to learn the hard way how law enforcement works here. They didn't charge you with a crime for having your licensed firearm, but now you might have to fight that little reckless endangerment charged they just slapped on you.




That's the man for you ,"Junior", they just don't like you to show them up.

Don't know how I feel bout this one. Though I'm not big on firearms I don't like the fact our "rural" counterparts can have an arsenal while us "urban" folk have to jump over the moon for the same right. I'm a youngest child, if one gets to do something we all do or none of us does.

I'm not a big fan of gun control laws, either. I understand the basic premise of them, but in practice, they only serve to disarm people other than law enforcement who have legitimate reason to own a firearm and fuel black market trades of firearms.

On the other hand, I'm not a big fan of open carry, either. Some people get off intimidating others with an openly shown. In other cases, it's a big, juicy bullseye for those who are intent on offing those who seem most poised to stop them in a hostage/gunfight scenario.

BTW, I hate to drag the spectre of white privilege into the argument, but I happened to listen to the audio recording of the entire situation. Would the cop in the audio have tolerated back talk and "why do you have a firearm pointed at me?" if Mr. Fiorano was Mr. Diontaye Simmons from North Philly? How long would it have been before the cop decided to discharge his weapon into Mr. Simmons' cranial region, "in fear of his life"?

From Psychology Today--

Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?


The only thing I can think of that might potentially explain the lower average level of physical attractiveness among black women is testosterone. Africans on average have higher levels of testosterone than other races, and testosterone, being an androgen (male hormone), affects the physical attractiveness of men and women differently. Men with higher levels of testosterone have more masculine features and are therefore more physically attractive. In contrast, women with higher levels of testosterone also have more masculine features and are therefore less physically attractive.

It is very interesting to note that, even though black women are objectively less physically attractive than other women, black women (and men) subjectively consider themselves to be far more physically attractive than others. In Wave III, Add Health asks its respondents to rate their own physical attractiveness subjectively on the following four-point scale: 1 = not at all, 2 = slightly, 3 = moderately, 4 = very. As you can see in the following graphs, both black women and black men rate themselves to be far more physically attractive than individuals of other races.


http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3412493


I think another thing that makes black women unattractive is they tend to talk out the side of they neck.

mack lyons wrote on the previous post:

Oil drilled from American oil wells is not, and will not be earmarked solely for American consumption.

Oil, like money, is fungible. Thus, it's not overly important where a barrel of Texas crude goes. But it does matter that Americans are getting paid to find it, drill for it, pump it, refine it and sell it.

It's very simple -- if we drill more here, we import less. Don't you wish it were that easy to bring auto manufacturing back to the US?

It's going on the open market, where the Chinese, Indians and any other national interest can purchase it.

Yeah, well even though your statement is factually correct, you might want to look into the actual flows of crude oil. There are plenty of oil producing nations that send NO oil to the US. And since we are net consumers, we don't export very much of our domestic oil.

At best, it'll put a next-to-insignificant dent in US fuel prices.

Lowering prices is not the primary objective of producing more oil domestically. The world consumers about 85 million barrels of oil per day.

Total production has to exceed 85 million barrels by at least 2 million before the world would see a noticeable drop in prices.

But the real bottleneck is in refining capacity. We can have an oil glut, but still see higher gasoline prices because the world's refining capacity is at its peak.

At worse, the effect is totally nonexistant.

Nonsense. If daily US production went from 9 million barrels to 10 million barrels, thereby reducing imports by a million barrels a day, we would pump $100 million dollars a day into OUR economy, instead of sending that money to a foreign economy.

It's like building cars. I hope you're bright enough to know that building a million more cars in the US, instead of importing a million Volkswagens, is the better choice.

You want to drop the price of gas? Crack down on Wall Street speculation that keeps the price of gas at record highs.

More nonsense from the peanut gallery. Speculators bet on prices going up AND down. However, if the commodity exchange were to increase margin requirements, we would see less volatility in oil prices. But no matter what, the price of oil will continue to go UP and DOWN.

But Obama has said he wants the price of oil to go way up, way up. But he wanted to raise the price artificially -- with taxes, to put money in the hands of politicians, in the same way they've gotten their hands on tobacco tax money.

Fiorino, the Glock-head, was looking for trouble and he found it.

A 40-minute debate? He's an idiot. Was he thinking he could provoke the cops into killing him? Yeah, maybe a family member might benefit from a lawsuit naming the city as the responsible party, but winning wouldn't do anything for Fiorino.

He said he studied the handgun laws for years. Sure. How about an hour. He's 25.

If he had any sense, he'd stay out of bad neighborhoods at night, and if possible, during the day too. That makes carrying a gun unnecessary.

Of course he would have had no problems if he had had a license to carry a CONCEALED weapon and done so.

Instead, the moron wanted to flash it around so everyone would see it. Not smart, as he is now learning.

Was Mumia licensed to carry that handgun he used to kill Officer Faulkner?

Last Thursday evening a petite woman was closing her beauty salon when a man got out of a car ran up to her put a gun in her back announced a holdup and when she turned around shot her in the chest. Buuuut she had been trained in the use of and had a legal gun in her purse which she was able to get out and shoot him in a testicle and both feet as he fled.Imagine his surprise! Pardon me for gloating but it just doesn't get any better than that! LOL! Now everyone is calling her a hero and applauding her actions.

So today this senator Albita Rivera goes on a crazy media tour saying that what the woman did was wrong! So we're supposed to let these criminals rob, shoot and kill us?

Last weekend 18 people were assassinated in San Juan alone! The police here just cannot keep up with the crime wave. It's like a war zone here. SomI say a gun in every home equals peace of mind!

As for "Junior" well, he went out looking for trouble and he found it!

This is funny on so many levels. Perhaps, because the author of this article is Japanese. Apparently, Satoshi Kanazawa has issues with people of African decent. He feels they are not fit to live. So much so that his articles have appeared on Stormfront and Vangard. Sounds like Satoshi is suffering from some serious, internalized racism. I don't know why he chose to attack black women. Could it be that they have their own perception of beauty- instead of a European ideal? Or, is it some kind of projection going on? After all, Asian men are not so desirable. Living in London, he has probably been rejected. However, it appears that he is a believer in racist stereotypes-and- is using bogus science to perpetuate them. P. Z. Meyers an evolutionary biologist at the University of Minnesota, has called Kanazawa "the great idiot of social science."

By the way Psychology Today has scrubbed its site. Don't let them get away with this!

"Mr. Fiorino, your ass is lucky to be alive."

His ass was lucky it wasn't black. Fiorino would have been a dead duck, shoot first no questions ask. And that's how I just knew he wasn't black.

Also, I have a problem with the average Joe Blow walking around with a loaded firearm. I hate guns period, they can do more harm than good for the average gun owner, especially inside their homes. Furthermore, I don't see how walking around with an exposed firearm is going to protect you, is that suppose to scare the bad guys away? Oh Really? And at least conceal the weapon, why should other people have to feel uncomfortable in a public place knowing they're at your mental mercy while things could easily turn into the wild wild west?

I know for a fact I don't ever want to own a gun. People drive so stupid where I live, I'm liable to show it to somebody in traffic and get my ass in trouble.

Btw Field, have you ever heard about this racist crap during the 2009 Obama inauguration? "Drunken Negro Head Cookies: The cookies depict black faces with bloodshot eyes and the usual stereotypical features (over-sized lips and noses)". The baker store owner saw nothing wrong with them. Typical.

It's very simple -- if we drill more here, we import less. Don't you wish it were that easy to bring auto manufacturing back to the US?"


In regards to job creation, it might. As for lowering gas prices? Not so much. As I said, burst the speculation bubble down on Wall Street, so per-barrel prices of crude plummet from $100+/barrel to $30-$40 per.

"if we drill more here, we import less"? Aside from the job creation aspects of increased US oil production, how is that going to affect how much goods we import from China, et al?

"Yeah, well even though your statement is factually correct, you might want to look into the actual flows of crude oil. There are plenty of oil producing nations that send NO oil to the US. And since we are net consumers, we don't export very much of our domestic oil."

I'm reading data on crude oil and petroleum-based product exports from the US Energy Information Administration. So far, Canada is the only country with figures listed for crude oil exports, at 847,000 barrels per month for Feb. 2011.

"Lowering prices is not the primary objective of producing more oil domestically. The world consumers about 85 million barrels of oil per day. "

The "Drill Baby Drill" crowd linked raising oil production to lowering gas prices. If lowering gas prices isn't the objective of increased oil production, does that mean the "Drill Baby Drill" crowd knows fuck-all about what they're talking about, or are they simply packaging this to a general public, hoping they'll associate more drilling with lower prices at the pump?

"Nonsense. If daily US production went from 9 million barrels to 10 million barrels, thereby reducing imports by a million barrels a day, we would pump $100 million dollars a day into OUR economy, instead of sending that money to a foreign economy."

Technically speaking, we pump way more money than that per day into foreign economies with military spending, but that's beside the point. Seeing an extra $100 million/day directed towards our economy is a good thing, but it still doesn't address how to lower the price of fuel. And farther down the road, you get to balance the extra influx of revenue with the raised environmental costs from increased drilling.

Mack Lyons said...

"It's like building cars. I hope you're bright enough to know that building a million more cars in the US, instead of importing a million Volkswagens, is the better choice."

From the average American's POV, yes. From the POV of an automaker looking to cut costs and increase profits by building their vehicles in locales offering cheap labor? Not so much. Unless the locale happens to be a southeastern "right to work" state that's willing to shower the company in millions of dollars worth of tax cuts. But building VWs in Pueblo and shipping them into the US courtesy of NAFTA may still be cheaper than building VWs in Tennessee with a labor force largely sourced from temporary labor agencies.

"More nonsense from the peanut gallery. Speculators bet on prices going up AND down. However, if the commodity exchange were to increase margin requirements, we would see less volatility in oil prices. But no matter what, the price of oil will continue to go UP and DOWN.

You may see something that will curb excessive speculation: naturalresourcereport.com/2011/05/wyden-targets-oil-speculators/

But Obama has said he wants the price of oil to go way up, way up. But he wanted to raise the price artificially -- with taxes, to put money in the hands of politicians, in the same way they've gotten their hands on tobacco tax money."

Do you have a link for this? I recall some talk about adding $1-$2 in taxes on fuel to pay presumably for repairing road infrastructure and possibly funding rail and bus transport, but I figured that plan was essentially DOA, given most Americans' hyper-reflexivity towards resisting tax increases.



"This is funny on so many levels. Perhaps, because the author of this article is Japanese. Apparently, Satoshi Kanazawa has issues with people of African decent. He feels they are not fit to live. So much so that his articles have appeared on Stormfront and Vangard. Sounds like Satoshi is suffering from some serious, internalized racism."

I wouldn't be surprised. He comes from a homogenous nation that indulges in rank xenophobia. Foreigners are treated warmly as long as they spend their money and leave. Problems come up when they attempt to integrate themselves into Japanese society, which with them being "not Japanese", well....

The great thing about the US is that practically anyone can become an American. It's a national identity that (most times) transcends ethnic backgrounds. It's something you can't do in Japan. Being "Japanese" is as much of a racial concept as it is a national one, so outsiders have no choice but to stay outside, generally speaking. And it gets even more complicated when you have mixed offspring...

"He say me no wan mud guppy, me like pwetty small light nice smellin women..you ugggllly you go home now I know dat not your real hair my sister put weave on you in her shop..go home now."

I wonder if at some point Kanazawa got shot down by a sistah and had to live through the indignity of seeing his female counterparts pass him up for black and white guys? And since veiled Asian racism towards whites isn't exactly in vogue nowadays, he had to settle for picking on blacks?

Amazing the lengths some people will go to conceal their bigotry so they can say what they feel about [add ethnicity here] without running the risk of being called "racist".

Once upon a time, when a white guy didn't like Negros, he'd call them "niggers" and just said how he felt about them, without shame. Ugly, but honest.

If possible Fiorino should sue the police and DA. The charges against him are obviously b/c he showed them up.

That said although I admire his knowledge of the law and willingness to challenge unlawful authority he could very well have done all that while obeying the officer's command. Were he black he would have been shot or beaten.
So that part was stupid beyond belief. Fiorino is lucky to be alive.

That said although I prefer concealed carry, if the law allows open carry then I can understand why some people prefer that.

As far as "looking for trouble" or "trying to set the police up" that is what anyone who's in a vanguard of social activism does. The police come off as whiners - "This guy he knew his rights and set out to show us as the ignorant bullies we often are"...

Here we see a good example of how all standards are being degraded all across America, even in the law.

The rule of law, in Bennett's view, should be subordinate to personal and group opinions. "That's how they roll".

Love how the jerkholes support the 'rite' of another to be a flaming jerkhole. Wasn't there another whiner about open carry in Lebanon County PA? Took her manly manhood firearm to football practices? Because there are such terrible dangers when small children play games. One never knows when OBL will send armed goons to flyover areas.
Why yes, I did see where brave heroic hero avoided 'those' areas of Philly. The ones where young adults have 'open carry' for reals. Funny how he picked places where he would not be double-tapped for being a jerkhole.
Lucky, lucky heroic brave hero. Trying to shake down the City.
And I would be ridding my firm of anyone who needed a firearm to bully or intimidate others. Queue jumpers beware! Flipping this dude off while driving the Sure-kill Expressway could be deadly! Watch out parents of football playing children!
He wants to carry so badly...let him enlist...

Mold, why do you think he was carrying his gun to bully or intimidate others?


Fiorino, an IT worker who lives in Montgomery County, grew up in Feltonville.

A handful of his friends fell victim to random crimes over the years - a mugging here, a beatdown there, the kind of stuff that happens all the time in a big city.

It was enough to make him think about being able to protect himself if he ever ran into trouble. "It would be terrifying to me to be powerless," he said.

So, about a year ago, Fiorino said, he got a firearms license and began openly carrying his .40-caliber Glock.


By and large the people shooting each other in the streets are not the people with valid licenses to carry firearms. Whether you like it or not individual right to handgun ownership has been established by the SC. PA evidently allows open carry.

So what Fiorino did initially was legal.

Giving a Type-A personality, high testosterone police officer reason to shoot you, taze you, mace you or beat you over a principle was extremely foolish imo, particularly since Fiorino eventually submitted anyway-making his initial refusal pointless.

But for those people who are concerned with self-defense or not becoming a victim I can't be angry at them for whatever legal steps they take-whether that's just avoiding certain areas, becoming a judo or silat serak expert, or carrying a valid registered firearm. It's up to the individual to choose how to best protect his life and property.

In regards to job creation, it might. As for lowering gas prices? Not so much. As I said, burst the speculation bubble down on Wall Street, so per-barrel prices of crude plummet from $100+/barrel to $30-$40 per.

Where do you get this nonsense about "speculation"?

In your imaginary world the market is one-sided. But in the real world, it is two-sided.

As the world knows, commodity markets are volatile. But volatility is NOT a one-way path to high prices. It means prices go up and down, sometimes rapidly.

If you want to slow the pace of change, then the best way is to raise the margin requirements for trading. But slowing the pace of change will have only a small effect on the peaks and valleys of oil prices.

Meanwhile, you seem to think that oil has an intrinsic value of $30-#40. This is your imagination at work. Something is worth whatever consumers are willing to pay.

As we're seeing, there is limited willingness among buyers to pay $100 a barrel. Thus, the price of oil has begun to drop.

How low will it go? Who knows? But after peaking at $147 a barrel in the summer of 2008, it fell to $38 a few months later. It bounced off the low price and hovered around the mid-point till recently.

Aside from the job creation aspects of increased US oil production, how is that going to affect how much goods we import from China, et al?

What? You're saying that if we increase our domestic oil production and pump the extra money into our own economy, that's not good enough because the extra oil money doesn't solve ALL our economic issues. Wow.

You better go back and re-read the chapter in your economics book titled "Comparative Advantage."

Trade is good. But increasing imports because we've created our own internal tariffs is bad.

One way countries overcome their own idiocy is by devaluing their currencies. Then imports become too expensive for the citizens while exports become cheap for people in other countries.

That's where Obama is taking us. Unfortunately, that gambit won't work very well for the US.

Shady says, "Field, what does the law state about a citizen's right to refuse a patently unlawful request from a police officer. I know the wise thing to do is to comply and fight it out in court."

In effect, you've answered your own question. There was a common law right to resist. Some states codified that right. But that right has been dispensed with by many state courts, on the grounds that you mention: a person has legal venues to redress the wrong, so physical means should not be allowed.

I don't know about PA in particular. Still, as always, rights often only belong to those who have the money to win in court.

There was a similar case in MD, in which a motorcyclist recorded his speeding stop via a helmet cam. When the video was discovered on youtube, the police retaliated with a wiretapping arrest for recording the stop.

The two countries sending the most oil to the US are Canada and Mexico.

The possibility that we export some oil to those countries while simultaneously importing oil from both is tied to operational issues. Net net, we import a lot of oil from those two.

We also pipe in -- import -- huge quantities of natural gas from Canada. Mexico is also increasing its US-bound shipments of natural gas.

In the case of Drill Baby Drill, it's the spirit that matters. It's the spirit of putting a lot of Americans to work in high paying jobs.

If lowering gas prices isn't the objective of increased oil production, does that mean the "Drill Baby Drill" crowd knows fuck-all about what they're talking about, or are they simply packaging this to a general public, hoping they'll associate more drilling with lower prices at the pump?

It means that PRICE isn't what people want to believe. It's a matter of importing versus consuming a domestic product.

When people say "Buy American" do they think if enough people buy Fords made in Detroit that Ford prices will drop? No.

But Ford does have some control over vehicle pricing, whereas the oil companies have no control over oil pricing.

As I said, the more oil we find, drill, pump, refine and sell in the US, the more American workers get paid for all the work involved. That's what economic recoveries are made of.

Your focus on all the externalities is an exercise in irrelevance and evidence that you have no grasp of economic reality.

Seeing an extra $100 million/day directed towards our economy is a good thing, but it still doesn't address how to lower the price of fuel.

There is NO absolute method for lowering the price of oil to a level that YOU think is the "correct" level.

Buyers decide for themselves. If the price is too high, they cut back. But where is that point? It's different for every buyer.

And farther down the road, you get to balance the extra influx of revenue with the raised environmental costs from increased drilling.

Nonsense. EVERY form of energy comes with environmental costs. If nations operated on the standards you're implying, then NO energy source would suffice.

When the day arrives that solar panels are efficient enough to compete with oil at $100 a barrel, you'll see solar companies trying to paper millions of acres of real estate with their panels. The plants and animals that had been living in those hot sunny desert-like regions will die when the ground is shaded by the blanket of solar panels.

There will be huge fights over ruining the environment for Gila monsters and other desert reptiles.

Anyway, clean-up costs are just part of life in the oil & gas industry. Not a problem.

Clean up is a source of meaningful work for many, and the cost of cleaning up will work its way into the price of oil.

Yep. You're right. Low taxes and free-market wage rates are just the ticket for attracting world-class manufacturers that bring jobs and prosperity to their locales. See how simple it is for American manufacturers to compete, even when they operate in the US?

Somebody in Detroit should consider the obvious.

But building VWs in Pueblo and shipping them into the US courtesy of NAFTA may still be cheaper than building VWs in Tennessee with a labor force largely sourced from temporary labor agencies.

Yep. Could turn out that way. But, as you noted by not mentioning it, a place like Detroit isn't worth mentioning because it has sacrificed its competitiveness as a manufacturing site by creating the internal tariffs that send work as far away as possible.

US car companies could easily compete with foreign manufacturers IF it were possible to dump ALL remaining union contracts and related obligations.

However, due to the fact that the restructuring of the US auto industry was only partial, the US car companies will always operate with a ball and chain on one leg.

Obviously you have no understanding of commodities markets. Or the concept of "stability."

Airlines buy futures contracts on oil-related products to control their fuel costs. Their goal is to "hedge" against rising prices, which they have been doing. But, as recent airline reports show, high oil prices have overtaken their hedging actions.

Nevertheless, as always, they have made their best estimates of fuel prices and hedged themselves accordingly.

Instead, they have become gambling parlors. Everybody has paid an inflated price for gas these past weeks because the gamblers made it so. Supply and demand wasn't changed, the Saudis made up for Libya.

All nonsense. On one side of a futures contract is the airline that is hedging against higher prices. The airline buys its contract from a participant who is speculating that prices will go higher.

YOu don't get one without the other.

We now have a situation where a small number of people gambling with a relatively small amount of money can and do set prices for consumers.

Gambling with a small amount of money that's leveraged into a much larger total does not ipso facto mean that prices go to the moon. But it does mean that prices can become extremely volatile.

You simply do not understand that oil has no exact value. Airlines can pay varying prices and still remain solvent. But there are a number of examples of airlines that went bankrupt because they did not hedge against their own internal limit on fuel costs.

I recall some talk about adding $1-$2 in taxes on fuel to pay presumably for repairing road infrastructure and possibly funding rail and bus transport, but I figured that plan was essentially DOA, given most Americans' hyper-reflexivity towards resisting tax increases.

Let's see. Gas is $4 a gallon. If it were $3 people would feel relieved. If it were $2 a gallon, people would be positively ecstatic.

On the other hand, if Obama hit America with an extra $1 a gallon today, the $5 price would bring on a firestorm of protest. If gas were pushed up to $6 due to Obama gas taxes, the nation would demand his resignation.

So, rather than risk his political neck, he's taken steps to restrict supplies by refusing to expand domestic drilling into areas where oil reserves are easy to tap. ANWR and off both coasts there are known, easily accessible oil fields that would soon boost US production by a significant percentage if we were to start the drilling process now.

Instead, Obama has made the oil companies the villains. Their profit margins are generally less than 10%. Whereas Apple and Microsoft have profit margins around 25%.

@Cereal Box- yes if I were Fiorino I would have complied with the officer's order immediately rather than delay but then again that's me. But my question is more along the lines of how the law recognizes a citizen's right to resist assault, rape or other celarly illegal "orders" from police officers-where to comply with a clearly illegal order causes bodily harm. That wasn't really the case here but I just find that question interesting as the officers were in the wrong.

@Mold
It's not Fiorino's fault that he's white. It's not the path I would have chosen but as it turns out he was right on the law and the officers were wrong. He had a license to carry and state law preempts local law. Both sides should have handled it better. And my understanding is that PA is a shall issue state, which means that if you are not a criminal/insane or under a protection order, you can't be stopped from getting a license to carry.

Very amusing and naive writing, proving only that our legislators are a lot dumber than 5th graders.

In the end, the blame for oil prices will be placed on ghosts.

For now, it's either villainous oil companies or green-eyed, greed obsessed evil speculators.

The following was especially amusing:

“Last week crude oil prices unexpectedly fell by nearly 10 percent in one day defying the basic economic principles of supply and demand and today they are back up over $100 a barrel,”

I love the part where he claims prices fell "unexpectedly." In other words, he believes that most of the time, people know -- in advance -- that prices will rise or fall. What a moron.

Wyden said. “The wild fluctuation could only be the result of rampant oil speculation, plain and simple...

Oh. The drop couldn't have anything to do with herd behavior and the sudden sense that airlines had reduced their hedging efforts.

Takes two sides to tango. Meanwhile, Wyden seems oblivious to the difference between the spot market and the futures markets.

First, he has to admit he knows nothing. Then he might begin to learn a little about the nature of dealing with expectations of what might or might not happen in the days ahead.

Haha, in ego-land, only slappz understands all, and everyone else is inferior. What a supercilious twit you are. (Since you 'debate' by constantly inserting demeaning language, I've dropped down to your level so you can understand me.)

Contracts were meant to exist between buyers and sellers of commodities. Farmers wanted to know what a crop would sell for at harvest, before they decided how much of a crop to plant in spring. The crop buyers likewise wanted to know in advance what they would be paying, so they could enter into contracts with their own customers. That's called stability. It doesn't mean whatever you fancy.

Speculators were allowed in order to provide liquidity to markets that needed it. There is no need for added liquidity in gasoline trading, therefore no need for speculators.

The situation that exists now allows speculators to place leveraged bets, and the bets in large part determine the price that consumers eventually pay.

You apparently are rather dull witted and think that fuel prices rose because those who eventually will take delivery of the fuel were the same ones bidding the prices up. In the real world, the buying pressure came from gamblers.

The solution is to allow only those who actually buy and sell fuel to participate. The overall trend would remain the same, yet we wouldn't be hijacked with spikes that are caused by gambling activity.

Well, you think like a fair-minded judge would. It's likely that a decision would be made precisely along those lines of imminent harm or not. But it's not "settled law", AFAIK.

Yet note that according to the post, he is not charged with resisting (or obstruction), but instead with reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. DC is the catchall charge that says "we want to get you on something". (Did Fiorino raise his voice?) The oddly applied endangerment charge might be related to the claim that police cars racing to the scene might have caused an accident.

As always, your state law may vary.

Still, Fiorino would likely be convicted by a judge in Phila, because of political considerations. A jury might be more likely to acquit.

However, the case became one of retaliation, since Fiorino was not originally charged on those counts. So a US court will decide that in a civil rights complaint, if things get that far.

@Shady: there's also the unremarked upon civil rights aspect of the recording itself. One officer sees Fiorino's recorder and says, "that's illegal".

Yet there was no charge on that matter. So maybe PA has settled that and it is no longer considered illegal to record an LEO in the public conduct of his official duty.

But then what about a bystander doing the recording? Fiorino has legal bills because he was doing something legal, though unwanted by the police. What if the police decided to charge a bystander with obstruction for recording, even knowing that ythe bystander would be acquitted - yet figuring that would discourage others?

Contracts were meant to exist between buyers and sellers of commodities. Farmers wanted to know what a crop would sell for at harvest before they decided how much of a crop to plant in spring....

Where did your quote come from? A high school US history book with a few paragraphs on agriculture and commodities markets? Please tell me how farmers SELLING contracts for FUTURE delivery of wheat, corn, etc, can incorporate the effects of drought or bumper crops.

They only know how much they will receive for the quantities they sell into the futures markets. By setting the price of their crops for sale in the future, they make manage to keep their own businesses going, but these deals do NOT stop prices from going way up or way down.

If every wheat farmer in the country tried to sell futures contracts to unload all their wheat crops in the same month, the price of that contract would drop way way down. But Farmer A does not know and cannot control the plans of Farmer B, or Farmer C, so they all have to live with the results.

Check the price of wheat today. Guess what? There's a drought that no one foresaw. Prices are way up.

What do you think the flooding from the Mississippi will do to supplies of crops nearby?

How high will prices go as a result of the drought? How high as a result of the floods?

... The crop buyers likewise wanted to know in advance what they would be paying, so they could enter into contracts with their own customers. That's called stability. It doesn't mean whatever you fancy.

Yeah, that's all very nice and it's what hedgers and speculators have always done. Nothing new here. Nothing new at all.

Nevertheless, prices have always swung from one extreme to the other, always as a result of perceived levels of supply and demand. NOT actual supply and demand -- but expectations of FUTURE supply and demand.

We can estimate and project with some confidence. But we can NEVER price to perfection.

Speculators were allowed in order to provide liquidity to markets that needed it.

I have a feeling you don't know the definition of liquidity, or what it takes to create a liquid market.

Without liquidity, there is no market. If you want and example of a buyers and sellers making deals without the benefit of liquidity, all you need to do is to look at the trading in credit derivatives during the Financial Crisis.

Or, you could look at Lehman Brothers and Bear Stearns. both collapsed when the liquidity in the markets they depended on suddenly, very suddenly disappeared.

There is no need for added liquidity in gasoline trading, therefore no need for speculators.

Right. Sure. YOu seem determined to miss the central point of commodities markets, which is that it takes two sides to make a market, and the two sides require a hedger and a speculator.

The situation that exists now allows speculators to place leveraged bets, and the bets in large part determine the price that consumers eventually pay.

Do you think airlines are unleveraged operations? How many months ahead should they purchase fuel? Or should they stick with the spot market only, figuring that what goes up, must come down?

Do they ever sell their contracts before maturity? Or do they always take delivery?

How about refinery companies? What about companies that only drill for oil and pump it? Where do they stand?

Who or what is on the other side of these trades? Nobody? The government?

How about companies that drill, pump, refine and sell refined products? HOw do they utilize the commodities markets?

no_slappz said...

white foreman con't:

You apparently are rather dull witted and think that fuel prices rose because those who eventually will take delivery of the fuel were the same ones bidding the prices up.

That wcenario exists in your mind only. Whereas, you seem oblivious to the fact that after Egypt began its revolution and the idea began to spread across North Africa and the middle east that somehow it was/is known how these upheavals will affect oil supplies.

Libyan production is down and Saudi Arabia cannot crank up production by a million barrels a day on short notice. It can definitely increase production by a million barrels a day -- given enough time and enough effort from the US and other nation's companies that actually manage the Saudi oil industry.

How long will Libya be offline? What will happen after Gaddafi is gone? Libayan production is very low because muslims are always extraordinarily incompetent at everything and Gaddafi was no exception. Thus, a sane leadership in Libya can expect to crank up oil production by a multiple of five or six, no problem. What will that do -- if it happens?

In the real world, the buying pressure came from gamblers.


You have no idea what MIGHT or WILL happen in the real world, which is why you believe it's possible to have a one-sided market.

The solution is to allow only those who actually buy and sell fuel to participate.

Really? Here's some hot news. Those guys are called speculators and there are a number of hedge funds (which should really be called Speculator Funds) that do exactly what you're suggesting. They buy and sell fuel. That's it. If they take deliverty, they warehouse the fuel in storage facilities, of which there are many around the world.

But mostly they scalp small profits trading contracts.

The overall trend would remain the same, yet we wouldn't be hijacked with spikes that are caused by gambling activity.

In other words, you believe the markets would find a perfect balance as every variable on the planet fell into a state of equilibrium.

What do you think about the price moves in gold and silver over the last 30 years?

white foreman,

Recently there was an article in the Wall Street Journal about a hedge fund (speculator fund) that was heavy into trading oil and energy contracts.

Unfortunately for investors in this fund, the strategist predicted prices were about to change direction. The fund placed its bets according to the predictions of the resident genius. But the genius was wrong and the fund lost 20% of its value in a matter of weeks.

The same happened a couple of years ago to a trader/genius running a fund focused on natural gas. Hunter-something was the name of the fund, and it got crushed.

If you want to know about disasters you have to keep up with those who report this information -- like those who collect data on hedge fund performance.

White Foreman said...

slappz, you really do make me laugh with your inflated sense of self importance. Take a chill pill, as these negroes say. Haha.

I'll take the last point of your misguided diatribe, since I don't want to get too bogged down in your clouded thinking:

me: "The overall trend would remain the same, yet we wouldn't be hijacked with spikes that are caused by gambling activity."

you: "In other words, you believe the markets would find a perfect balance as every variable on the planet fell into a state of equilibrium."

no, I believe what I'd said. Just reread it. It doesn't make much sense for you to incorrectly restate what I'd said, then take that restatement as if I'd said it.

One last thing: you have a penchant for using stats, yet you miss out on actually understanding things. The main stat that explains the price spike(s) concerns how much money has flowed into buying contracts. When the speculators decide that is a hot market, they pour in and drive prices up. Too much money chasing the contracts makes them rise. It's simple. It's not about too much money chasing the actual fuel, it's a temporary artifact of the gambling dens.

white foreman, you wrote:

me: "The overall trend would remain the same, yet we wouldn't be hijacked with spikes that are caused by gambling activity."

Is there some market that's run according to your standards that reflects the pricing pattern you believe in?

Meanwhile, if the "trend" were to remain the same, then the prices would reach the same peaks and valleys, but get there at a slower pace. In other words, in your scenario it's likely that the weighted average price over a one-year stretch would be higher than the average in which swift up and down spikes occurred.

The main stat that explains the price spike(s) concerns how much money has flowed into buying contracts.

But not the contracts sold short? Again, you are fixated on the idea that a market is one-sided.

When the speculators decide that is a hot market, they pour in and drive prices up.

Up? How high is UP? When has a "hot market" boiled over? Do you believe speculators hear a bell ringing when the price peaks?

Is there a corresponding "cold market" in which price are driven down? Or is do the prices simply fall due to gravity?

Too much money chasing the contracts makes them rise.

Really? How many contracts are there? In your scenario, there are a fixed number of contracts and all that changes is the amoung of money moving into those contracts.

But we're discussing FUTURES contracts, which involve unknown quantities of commodities. Unknown quantities. Nevertheless, you seem to think the markets function in a world of certainties.

It's simple. It's not about too much money chasing the actual fuel, it's a temporary artifact of the gambling dens.

Based on your willingness to ignore my questions in a previous comment, in addition to your statements here, it remains obvious that your views of commodities markets and how those markets reflect human behavior were formed with the help of journalists who are mystified by both.

As I keep saying, it takes two to tango. If there is no one to buy a contract from a someone looking to hedge his risk, there is no market. You seem to think the buyer is evil.

YOu might want to keep in mind the fact that oil companies are pleased when they can sell FUTURE production for high prices. It means they have money for more drilling projects. But here in the US, Obama and his Department of Energy killjoys have gone a long way to cap the expansion of drilling, which is one way of minimizing future production, which is a factor in higher prices of oil futures.

If Obama were to announce that oil companies could drill anywhere and everywhere, oil prices would fall due to expectations of increasing supplies in the future.

Would prices drop to $30 or $40 and stay at that level? No. But $60? That's possible. $70? Probably.

Just like the fantasy that everybody benefits when jobs are exported to China.

No responsible and credible economist has ever made that statement. But plenty of irresponsible gasbags have probably made the claim.

Just like the fantasy that Wall St employs the 'best minds'.

No credible source will stand behind that statement either.

But here's what is true: When it comes to prices found in commodities markets, EVERYONE can register his opinion on the "right price" by buying or selling a contract. Geniuses, idiots, everyone, and almost instantly prices reach a clearing point.

RAPE VICTIM IN THE DOMINIGUE STRASS-KAHN ARREST IS AN AFRICAN IMMIGRANT. ACCORDING TO SOME FEMINIST WEBSITES HER NAME HAS BEEN RELEASED.

If you missed the news about the president of the IMF, and potential president of France, Dominique (kosher)Strass Kahn was arrested for the rape of a maid, in New York, yesterday. As soon as I heard about the incident, my reaction was- this is pathological behavior. This man has probably been doing this for most of his life. Nevertheless, the French papers are crucifying the victim. Already top French intellectual,(I think he is living in New York)Bernard Henri Levy is outraged that a man of Strauss-Kahn's caliber would be held for such as crime. Will he be prosecuted? NO!
-----


Excerpt From article:

Dominique Strauss-Kahn accused of attempted rape of African maid


Strauss-Kahn appeared grim-faced and kept his mouth shut late Sunday night as he was taken, handcuffed, from the Manhattan office of the NYPD's special victims unit to the medical facility.

His accuser, described by a co-worker as a single mother of African descent, stared down the political star during a police lineup at the special victims unit.

She isn't the first woman to identify Strauss-Kahn as a sex fiend. Anne Mansouret, the mother of French TV reporter Tristane Banon, said that when her daughter interviewed Strauss-Kahn in 2002, he tried to attack her. Banon, goddaughter of Strauss-Kahn's second wife, spoke about the attack in a 2007 TV program, but Strauss-Kahn's name was bleeped. She described the politician as a "rutting chimpanzee" and claimed she had to kick and fight him off.

Sunday night, Mansouret told reporters in France that she regretted talking her daughter out of filing charges. " "I bear a heavy responsibility," Mansouret said.

The maid at the Sofitel hotel on W. 44th St. who accused Strauss-Kahn on Saturday told cops he was naked when he attacked her as she went to clean his $3,000-a-night suite. The maid, 32, told cops she tried to run away from the randy Frenchman, nicknamed both the "The Great Seducer" and "Hot Rabbit." But he chased her down a hallway and yanked her into a bedroom, she told police. He then dragged her into a bathroom, tried to strip off her panties and forced her to perform oral sex on him, police said.

I heard Strauss-Kahn had just called down to room service & ordered him up a ho dressed like a French maid.

Just a case of mistaken identity.

Don Siegelman, anyone?
Michael Jackson, OJ, Clinton....the list of MSM guilty verdicts is long and should give us pause...particularly when they treat Brietbart and OKeefe as if those two and their cohorts were honest.
Did you not know how racist Sherrod is? Or that pimps could go to ACORN and make up poo. Or that Planned Parenthood was eveeel?

I smell set up on this one. Strauss-Kahn literally managed a globe of money at one time. Are you telling me this man choose to sexually harass a lowly maid over purchasing a piece of ass in NYC?

"And you return and think everyone who already schooled you in this very bit of grammer has either left or forgotten. Typical liberal, can't hang with the content, it is over your head, so then try and discredit the source with something assinine. Well "YOUR" mistaken, we can still see your content even with the attempted distraction."


Yeah anon, you still are too ashamed to create a name and still don't know proper grammar. I know, third grade English is a bitch huh? Maybe YOUR buddy can teach you some English after he/she/it teaches you how an expensive gas guzzling SUV is more efficient than a car with good gas mileage. Conservatives love to create their own little worlds in which they are always right and change the rules to make it so.

"So you believe in separatism, huh?"

No Foreman, we just love having to read ignorant racist filth from ignorant hillbillies. Every sista and brotha should be so lucky.
