Re: Texas: all hat no cattle?

I could be a lot more impressed by Ms. AOC's love for the state of Texas if she would perform her charitable acts without injecting politics into her effort. It appears she saw a wonderful opportunity to belittle Mr. Cruz, and at the same time help in the disaster relief. As you know, Cruz was almos...

Re: Texas: all hat no cattle?

You do realize, if left alone, Texas would be the 10th largest economy in the world. If Texas were to secede, keep all of the taxes sent to Washington, you think federal aid would ever be needed? Texas has been a "recipient" state rather than a "donor" state since maybe 2017 or so; if Texas seceded...

Re: The American Flag

I'm like GT, I have my preference but as long as it's done with respect, and with the right attitude, far be it for me to judge. I'm still just amazed that in my lifetime we have come to such a level of disrespect for our country, and it's symbols, the flag and anthem. Also, I'm still having a diffi...

Re: The American Flag

[ At the time, World War I was nearing an end. Singing The Star-Spangled Banner that day was a well-timed display of comradery and patriotism. Harry Frazee, then owner of the Red Sox, subsequently began each other game of the series by having the band play the song. Is not comradery and patriotism ...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

The official recommendation is that you're supposed to get the vaccine even if you've had COVID or evidence of past infection. No reason or scientific rationale given, so I can't explain why. What is your source for this? There have been bulletins distributed from my hospital and also NY DOH, but h...

But the conspiracy isnt grand enough such that there's been a cure since 1981 with Ivermectin
Although not indicated for treatment, Ivermectin appears to be most efficacious in the treatment of Covid. Why have we not heard more about this?

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I've got a question. We are 10 months into this pandemic and we are still arguing over the effectiveness of wearing a mask. There appears to be an issue of personal rights, efficacy of the mask, as well as the subject has obviously been politicized. Do we have any high quality studies on the efficac...

Re: Poll: What percentage of your gold is held in physical form?

For new money into gold, right now I'm not sure ETF's might make more sense considering the high markup over spot price that most dealers are charging for bullion. Lock in gains (or losses) with ETF's then convert to bullion when markups come down..............assuming they ever will.

Re: Biden’s Gun Plan

But I think before guns, women and physically weak men had pretty much no way to protect themselves from strong men wanting to do harm to them. Reminds me of the old quote "God made men, Same Colt made them equal". This reads quite transphobic. Since physical strength differences between men and wo...

How do you "pardon" someone who has not been formally accused or convicted of an actual crime? Throughout Trump's administration the MSM as continuously based their rhetoric on "what if" scenarios.
