So we should have voted for Clinton?

Re: An historic day

I'll be watching today online for sure. Launch time is 4:33pm EDT. I've watched some of SpaceX's unmanned launches live at Vandenberg Airforce Base in California. We were parked several miles away, and our minivan still shook from the sound. It's an awesome display of controlled power. I'm hoping so...

Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

I think he's forgotten what 2016 looked like. All we read was 12 months of articles telling us that Trump wouldn't win, right up to 5 minutes before the returns came in. It won't be any different this time. I'm not saying for sure that Trump will win. But for sure, the media will tell us that he can...

Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

Unpopular with whom?

They are very popular with me. Why should we be friends with a totalitarian regime that steals all of our best ideas and jobs?

And where did COVID start anyway?

Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

polling https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/05/media_in_panic_mode_over_latest_presidential_polls.html That is excellent. I'm still predicting Trump, and Republicans in general, win in a landslide in November, if nothing else goes seriously wrong before then. I think (and hope) Trump will...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

So much for hydroxychloroquine as a COVID treatment, not that this should come as a surprise: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2012410 I am sorry that this drug ended up being used as a political football, resulting in raising a lot of false hopes. Other treatments are perhaps more promi...

Re: Atlas Shrugged Book

Hey great, thanks for the feedback. I kind of figured that the negative things I had read were from people who I probably wouldn't agree with on most things. I've already read about 5% of the book and have mostly enjoyed it. If it's like most longish classics I've read, it probably just gets better ...

Atlas Shrugged Book

Is this a good book? I've read and heard mixed reviews. Please don't write any spoilers in your answers. I started it a few days ago. The writing seems good to me, and I've enjoyed the read so far, but some of the plot points seem strained and unrealistic. It's a long book. I don't want to waste my ...

Re: Intellectual Property (IP) & Theft

Does the restaurant owner deserve to be paid their desired asking price for chicken marsala when someone decides to instead make their own chicken marsala at home? ... Should I not be allowed to make chicken marsala at home without also, at the very least, paying my local restaurant owner for the r...

Re: The effects of COVID-19 on Dentistry

Pugchief, Good on you for continuing to pay your staff. That's very commendable. Just out of curiosity, because I don't really know much about this stuff, wouldn't they make more money if you laid them off so they could get the expanded unemployment benefits? Or is it because those benefits only las...

Re: Would you start a PP for a 6 year old?

Too conservative in my view.

Here's what I might do. 50/25/25 between VTI/VGIT/GLDM.

Rebalance annually and have them participate in the rebalance process so they see how it works. This teaches them to invest in low cost funds, keep an eye on them, and rebalance infrequently.
