You’re Often Judged By The Company You Keep…

I noticed this rider on an email i received from a FOREX trading company:

FXGiants does not offer its services to residents of certain jurisdictions such as USA, Iran, Cuba, Sudan, Syria and North Korea.

Now while i would not recommend this company as being one of the better or more trustworthy examples of an investment company I did think it a little telling of the current world view of the USA that they would associate it with the other countries mentioned.

      P.S. I forgot to mention…. by way of ‘owing me one’ – you have already paid it in spades. Your suggestion of how to propagate Kalanchoe has seen to that.
