Re: Jan 6 footage on Tucker

Sorry, Vinny, I may have been unclear. I'm not asking for your opinion of Naomi Wolf. What is your opinion of what she is saying here? He didn't have an opinion on Naomi Wolf. Wikipedia did. It is my perception that Vinny has no opinion on anything and no ability to critically think on his own, onl...

Re: Jan 6 footage on Tucker

Turns out Carlson said shot. Somehow I heard killed. My mistake, not his.

Re: Jan 6 footage on Tucker

Vinny, you often seem to strongly to see the forest and not the trees, imo. When you encounter an erroneous statement, your whole focus goes there, to the detriment of a bigger picture. So yes, apparently they were wounded, not killed. Does that really change the significance of the event that much?...

Re: Socialism - Should we be worried

It's good to know there is still a county where you can buy an average house under 300K. Actually I'm sure there are a lot of them, but most of the "good job" places are way above that. It's rough.

Re: Jan 6 footage on Tucker

January 6th stands alone in the annals of our country's history. Balogna. :) I have to credit Tucker Carlson's segments for reminding me of this. In 1954 Puerto Rican separatists killed, yes killed, 5 members of the US Congress in the House. As far as a riot type thing, in the George Floyd riots in...

Re: Jan 6 footage on Tucker

Releasing footage just to a guy on the right sure does sound like weaponization of government This morning I watched a couple of the Tucker Carlson segments. He has a very compelling case. The biggest thing he has shown is that exculpatory evidence against the "QAnon Shaman" was withheld from him a...

Re: Jan 6 footage on Tucker

This is all political on both sides. They are distressed by the efforts by MCarthy and Carlson to mitigate the perceptions, because of all the police who were injured. During all the “mostly peaceful” antifa riots, did the mainstream media spend much time on how many police were injured? No doubt th...

The whole video is enjoyable and impressive coming from the 90 year old Burton Malkiel.

You can read about it for hours on bogleheads. tldr you only need a handful of market makers. Even here many dont hold total market. They make sector and factor bets. I can see that making sense.

Re: When will indexing blow up?

I could see a future where people who start companies don't incporporate, {etc} This is quite astute. I like it. One of the difficulties that would have to be overcome is that of obtaining capital. Investors would need some mechanism to guarantee their equity allocation. That doesn't sound unsolvab...

Re: Great article on the new politics

I think the militia types were a small part of the article, more of the sizzle than the steak. You'll get no argument from me about their potential effectiveness if directly confronting the US government. The govt does not do a lot of things well, but one thing they are great at is killing you if th...

Understood.

But, there has to be a market share inflection point, when the index funds have no underlying price discovery and things go crazy.

Great article on the new politics

This is a long article in Vanity Fair that is a great read. I am posting it as a placeholder so I can come back later with more thoughts. It’s more about where the right wing is headed but also about the center. The right wing is not, as Vinny wrote, what the Republican Party does or says. And a lot...

I can’t view the article, but I’m familiar with the concept. I think your former boss was way too conservative on that. I agree. His other partner had no formulas like that for the salary / Sub S split. Were you a Sub S? If so, what was typically your split? In recently reading how health insurance...
