Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

I'll be astonished (in a happy way) if you (or anyone else) can convince someone with rampant TDS to actually notice media bias, no matter how extreme. A person who is willing and able to do that wouldn't have been brainwashed in the first place. It usually takes getting hit over the head, figurati...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

I'm not sure what you mean by "withdrawing from the world". I don't want the US to be the world police. Limited immigration according to merit, fine. Tourism, fine. Otherwise it's up to US citizens and companies how they want to relate to people and companies in other countries. From what I've read...

Re: Investing Twice Monthly Into PP

It would be more work for me since I'd have to put new numbers into my spreadsheet, but it's not that big of a deal. If there are no transaction costs I wouldn't worry about it.

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Most of the work being done to divide the people is being done by the mass media, which fits with Trump's accurate description of them as the enemy of the people and fake news. Absolutely. WRT Mattis' statements that doodle referenced; I agree that this is a law enforcement matter, but some of his ...

Re: Another angle on the recent events in America and the world

Owning a gun has scant relevance to defending yourself against terrorists, burglars, or flying saucers. It’s about defending yourself against a police state that does not care for your well-being or your liberties. Man arrested for holding a rifle while group of protesters advanced on him. It appea...

Re: I'm shocked, shocked! that most Americans don't want the cities burned to the ground

By the way, that Reuters article repeats the lie, since walked back even by Pelosi, that tear gas was used on peaceful protesters. So Reuters is part of the "resistance" too. I've noticed that more and more bias has been creeping into Reuters articles recently. They used to be good old fashioned bl...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Police arrested the 36 on suspicion of trespassing, burglary, causing property damage, stealing and assault. They range in age from 17 to 36 but the majority of them are teens and people in their 20s. "In a stunning development, our office has learned that every single one of the St. Louis looters ...

Re: I'm shocked, shocked! that most Americans don't want the cities burned to the ground

Just saw a poll from Reuters/Ipsos, "The survey conducted on Monday and Tuesday found 64% of American adults were “sympathetic to people who are out protesting right now,” while 27% said they were not and 9% were unsure."

"We're on your side!" as rocks come smashing through the windows. Doesn't seem to work.
