Re: Tucker Carlson: Biden is Done

Tucker Carlson nails it again. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2023/01/tucker-carlson-hunter-joe-biden-crimes/ I infer from Pence's "me too" statement (his gratuitous admission that he, also, is in possession of classified documents) is supposed to make us go, "Hey, no big deal, everybody's doing i...

Re: Tucker Carlson: Biden is Done

This is no longer about the mishandling of classified documents. It is about the trafficking of national secrets. From Miranda Devine at the New York Post, regarding a "curiously well-informed email about Ukraine, Russia and the UK on Hunter Biden’s laptop. . .that links the President’s classified d...

Re: Tucker Carlson: Biden is Done

In other words, you took a wild pot shot at a position with which you were predisposed to disagree. No. I try to go into these things with an open mind and ready to have it changed with facts, logic, persuasion. Tucker Carlson failed on all those counts. He's strictly an entertainer playing to his ...

I assume every one of his "entertainment shows" are as laden with this one with half-truths, lies, exaggerations? Thereby rendering it of no intellectual value other than whatever entertainment value one can derive from it? That's it? We don't get any analysis, facts, or even elaboration, to suppor...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Hey guys, question for you all that I'd like your opinion on. A friend who I attended college with has some money stashed away (about $5,000) and she wants to get some graduate level education. She's debating two options for that amount of money: 1) Get a master's degree at a low end school (not di...

Re: The State of the Economy

I would just like to point out again that debt as a currency user (an individual, a household, a state, a country with a currency that's backed or pegged) is qualitatively a completely different thing from debt as a currency issuer (a nation-state with its own fiat currency). Yes, but is it differe...

There is now an ICD diagnostic code for "unvaxxed." A set of international codes are used by the medical industry for billing purposes under Medicare-Medicaid and the private insurance companies, but it’s not just about billing. These codes are part of the International Classification of Disease (IC...

The State of the Economy

In another thread, my assessment that the U.S. economy was "in shambles" was challenged, but without elaboration or argument. I'd like to explore this issue a little further, and in particular to understand whatever counterargument there may be to my view that our economy is not only in dire trouble...

Re: What's the future for Conservatism?

It's not only the parents. Today's "rubber room" culture makes sure that kids don't have any skin in the game. I honestly believe that many of them have no idea what it feels like to work hard at something--anything--and to reap the reward.

Re: What's the future for Conservatism?

Has there been a time in history when, in the course of a generation, a culture defined by moral relativism, lack personal responsibility and the glorification of degeneracy moves in the other direction? Or does it take the destruction of a civilization to bring about a social reset?

Re: Mar A Lago documents

There was an article about two weeks ago that highlighted a trendy new ethic among young professional people known as "work your salary" or something like that. The idea is that you work only as hard as you subjectively feel you're paid enough to do. As a trend this might be new, but it's been going...

Kinda surprised you trust organic labeling to be anything more than a license to charge more. I've had more than one farmer tell me it's a scam of bureaucracy. This said, I've noticed how much better produce seems to look and taste in developing countries where mass farming is not an organized indu...

Re: Mar A Lago documents

I'm not going to dispute all of the above but I don't buy that the economy is in "shambles" and that we have (or even had at the time of the midterms) anything close to "runaway inflation". Yes, inflation was running hot through June but CPI-U numbers have come to a near standstill since then. . . ...

Was the reason for the raid that the former President was in possession of the documents? Or was it that he allegedly refused to give them back? Or was it something else?
