Re: What makes some microbes cause transient sickness while others become a permanent part of our bodily ecology?

You could say cold/flu is part of the human herd genome, and like cancer, its so much like us that the immune system has trouble distinguishing it. It'll get worse every year because the population is aging. Even stranger is self/non self with consciousness. Are you the same person you were 10 years...

Re: Coronavirus Conspiracy Theories

Deep State/Fourth Estate grabbed Trumpy by the p** He cant call it overhyped, and has to concede everything to end the recession before election. Whats happening with his tariffs?

Re: The Bond Dream Room

Only the Fed would buy long bonds with negative rates. When does it make sense to underweight them in the PP?

Re: The Bond Dream Room

Re: PP vs Dividend Growth Investing

Non profits can hire extra administrators and pay them exorbitant salaries.

Xan your not wrong, net profit expectations are part of the equation to value a company. The word "dividend" is narrowly defined as a forced quarterly withdrawal. It's not always a good thing.
