    I heard some guys talking about how crazy strict Illinois gaming commission is. IL aren't near as "pro-gaming" as perhaps Vegas. It was the IL gaming commission that shut the casinos down.

    So my latest understanding is the UK is just pushing forward. They are going for herd immunity. This concerns me, as I think the cooperation by private enterprise and some state/city governments will have done enough to lower the infection curve, but I also suspect this will make it so that a new epidemic is possible for a longer period of time.

    Depending on lots of things, it could make sense to actually want a casino's worth of staff to catch this damn thing ASAP.

    You need to go thru the threads in the LV section. Go back several years to see what has been put in the LV section. Itís the catch all section. Always has been. Always will be. Have you noticed Dan doesnít care about your complaints?

    Yesterday, I actually posted in the RIGHT Forum Whatever's On Your Mind about my concern about my Walgreens Stock plummeting to a sad $42 a share, HALF of what it was just four years ago. Even sadder is that with commission and fees I'd end up in the RED since the commission and fees combined are $69, $27 more than the share!

    Most brokerages are NO commissions. Even if you are dealing with a ghetto brokerage like a ďBuy Here, Pay HereĒ car dealer the fee is overall on the trade. So a $69 fee would be for the entire trade, not per share. The only way you would be negative is it you only have one share.

    Is this money in an employer sponsored retirement fund? If so you would also pay an IRS penalty for taking it out early as well.

    While the smart thing might be to take your losses, sell it and try to gain it back in a penny slot, you might just want to hold it and wait it out.

    If anyone is putting threads in the wrong section it’s ex-AP. He’s putting machine play threads in Whatever’s On Your Mind.

    I only have one share available since Walgreens puts restrictions on my Shares. I have 7 shares available bit can only touch one.
