Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Do some Google searches. Tests are probably ok for several months past expiration date. There is a list available (I don’t have with me) that tells new dates by mfg date and company. I think I saw it on Popular Science but not sure. Good luck. Edit: Supposedly Walgreens also has free Covid antigen t...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Just booked a flight for this coming Saturday to the city of Edmonton, Alberta. Going to buy a house there. I have a budget of about $500,000. For that amount of money you can buy yourself a very decent single family home. That same 500k will barely buy you an apartment here in lower mainland BC, a...

Re: Figuring Out Religion

From Portals of Prayer: Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” JOHN 6:68 On the heels of a hard teaching, many of Jesus’ disciples turned inward with discontented complaining. To them, His words were a “hard saying.” The Greek here means “hard to a...

Re: Scarce and high priced energy in Europe

I remain energy policy agnostic. I like it cheap and I also like it as minimally polluting as possible which are in conflict some but that's ok. We can ask for and expect both. I'm also not an expert or very knowledgeable in the energy area, but I've learned over my life that you can learn from/bui...

Re: On the subject of Trump

Did not hear a word of the speech and only have read a handful of comments about it. But did find this somewhat humorous. The background does look like something vintage Nazi Germany.

It's not the wealth per se, it's how the wealth was gained and is retained. If you're on the far right side you should be able to instantly get this example. Company X hires illegals. Illegals suppress wages. Company X has more wealth now and took your potential wealth for themselves by pocketing t...

I don't quite get what the problem is with wealth. You can transfer wealth (e.g. like bartering, or when the wealthy one dies) but you can't spend wealth without turning it into some sort of income.

Pulling the wagon boosts self esteem much more than riding in the wagon. Too many riding results in a downhill spiral and depression (double entendres). Depression leads to unpredictable results.
