Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

When it comes to those on the left standing up for the "truth" I think you need only look to judge Kavanaugh. On the one year anniversary of his confirmation to the supreme court there was a group of protesters outside the supreme court building protesting that they had put an "obvious" sexual pred...

Re: Trump Is Quietly Deregulating All the Things

Who are the "good alternative sources" that you follow? I have C-Span on a ton so I get a fairly balanced and, oftentimes, at the source point of view. The latter is raw with no editing or opinions. Right now I have on C-Span 2 - which is Book TV on the weekends. Vinny Why should the media report o...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Is it just me, or is the crop of 2020 Dems unusually filled with liars? I don't try to memorize the offenses, but I'm pretty sure several of them have proven track records of lies. And I can think back to the same thing in other years. John Kerry, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Hillary. Usually they are in...

Re: Trump Is Quietly Deregulating All the Things

Why should the media report on this? It's so much more entertaining to write snide comments about Trump's latest faux pas. After all, who cares about the financial health of the US economic system for the next few decades when you can instead get red-faced screaming angry about some entirely outrag...

Re: Estate Taxes

Of course it is wrong. That money has already been taxed. The money has already been taxed (possibly... we don't know what form it came in) to the giving party. The receiving party, just like any business establishment that might otherwise receive the money if, say, it was spent with a lawn mowing ...

Re: Estate Taxes

Inheritances are income to the receiving party. Forget the estate tax. Tax it within the income tax regime. I'd think that would have the same problems as the wealth tax. If your parents liked to collect art or cars or nice tools or some other non-financial things, and passed them down to you, you'...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

The Democrat Congress and Presidential candidates seem to be doing everything in their power to alienate independents and even moderate Democrats. If everything goes on as it is, Trump will win in a landslide and the Republicans will take back the House and keep the Senate. What do you consider a "...

Re: Monarchism

Ad, I'm curious...What were the problems with the Enlightenment? I hadn't heard that described negatively before. Also, you could make a case that the history of the Roman Church's dominion prior to the Reformation was no better than what you described post-Reformation: it effectively shut down sci...

Re: Ukranian phone call

Here's the thing that gets me, guys and gals. Trump I'm sure is no choir boy, but he made his money in business before entering politics. The Biden family has made all of its money essentially due to politics. So, putting aside personalities and styles, which one of these two do you really think is...

Re: Ukranian phone call

Okay, I've been trying to make heads or tails out of this whole situation. It seems that the Biden family may have used the leverage of US military aid to Ukraine for personal gain: specifically in order to get a prosecutor fired and/or a case dropped. Trump asked the Ukranian president to help inv...
