Re: Roger Stone Freed by Trump

Gregg Jarrett: Trump right to commute Roger Stone’s sentence – Stone committed no crime, was framed by Mueller Stone was convicted for “process crimes” that simply could not have occurred without the bogus Russian collusion investigation. That’s different than the previously mentioned cocaine exampl...

I agree completely.

It seems that whenever that problem is raised, even by black men and women, you get crucified. It is like a third rail that is untouchable by anyone.

Re: BSV for cash portion

I have a sizable amount of my "cash" allocation in a 401k Mass Mutual stable value/Fixed Account that guarantees 3%/yr. "The Fixed Account is not a mutual fund. It is an investment choice available through a group annuity contract or group funding agreement." My plan was to draw from it as needed. ...

Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

Trump has 91% chance of being reelected according to model that has correctly for 25 of the 27 elections since 1912, when primaries were introduced. Sure.... This is by no means a normal year, nor a normal primary season, nor a normal anything. You can find anyone with any opinion out there on anyt...

Re: Schools and Covid

In this morning's news, Washington's governor Inslee has declared that schools will reopen in stages, in a manner sensitive to social inequities. White children will be the last to go back. I'm kidding you not. Once again, how is this legal? Can someone provide a link? A quick Google search isn’t t...

Re: Texts vs. Emails vs. Phone Calls

In a similar way, I miss the old Internet where most people shared ideas by blogging instead of using social media. The longer format of blogs motivated people to organize their thoughts much more coherently. I've sometimes wondered, if an online discussion forum were to limit each member to a maxi...

Re: Schools and Covid

My daughter will be a sophomore in high school with an August 5th start. We should hear about that this week, and it may be some kind of hybrid solution and almost certainly with masks. But it's clear that the kids need to go back in some capacity. They need the structure and accountability that co...

Re: Schools and Covid

My son will be a freshman at Indiana University (in-state) this Fall. They will finalize plans for classes next week. It's expected that there will be a mix of online and in-person classes, at least partially at the discretion of the instructor. The school has been making a lot of adjustments to de-...

Re: Trump's Mt. Rushmore speech

Vinny, with all due respect, you don’t seem to have an accurate understanding of Trump’s base. And some people just like a good kick-ass tune, especially at celebrations, events featuring kick-ass military hardware, or campaign rallies. It’s more about setting the mood than analyzing the lyrics.

Re: Question on the media

I think it’s more than the usual tit-for-tat and Trump not being cut out for the job. He may or may not be right for it, but the political establishment and the media are actively trying to subvert him and his administration. That takes things to a level we haven’t seen before.
