Re: Service economy inspires crappy design

I am going to speculate that the vast majority of car owners who are not members of this forum or are extremely mechanically inclined have zero interest in doing their own maintenance on cars. With the onboard computers that control everything, anything beyond changing the oil is a major undertaking...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Biden proved his total cluelessness about healthcare. His implicit assumption is that the cost of HC in the US is somehow a universal constant like the speed of light, and he can't seem to entertain the idea that the entire system is screwed up, which is why we overpay for worse service in this cou...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Now Hasbro has joined the Woke crowd. ::) Monopoly, the infamous family board game that has ruined friendships for over 80 years, has decided to take a heavy dose of the “woke” pill. Hasbro is debuting a special edition of Monopoly which “celebrates women’s empowerment” by giving female players more...

She also wants to expand DACA and Temporary Protected Status, decriminalize illegal immigration, expand legal immigration, and take 5x more refugees than we do now. I would have to guess her hope is in all those people who don't live there yet. Candidates tend to lean farther from center in the pri...

Re: Bonds and IRAs

In Craig's PP book it says p245 - tax deferred accounts (401k/IRAs) should be used for lease tax-efficient assets first (those that produce interest and dividends). Assets should go into tax sheltered accounts int he following order: bonds, cash, stocks, gold. Do folks generally agree with that? Co...

Btw, PS’s bad Chicago photo was a back alley, not a street.
The first one is an alley. The second one, labeled 19th St is an actual street.

All of the alleys in Chicago look like that before the trash is picked up. At least the trash not on the sidewalks on garbage day like in NYC.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Ad O, I don't disagree with anything you said, except would qualify a couple of points. 1. The likelihood of the Dems not nominating a leftist nut is slim, as Biden is pretty much the only one who does not meet that mold. 2. The Dems need 'purification' more than the GOP in my opinion. Both sides ha...
