Re: $250 investment for a 19 year old?

Have them buy VTI and EDV. They'll learn about markets: bid/ask, limit order duration etc.

Inserting politics for the lulz: VTI and EDV are poised to shoot up when the money printer restarts approaching the 2024 election. "Its the economy stupid" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ygln5S-9hIw

Re: More Money != More Inflation

If inflation is 8% the Fed should offer us a 6% (at least) savings account. They are supposed to push back on reckless spending.

> Scott Adams has been right about Trump's ability to live rent-free in people's heads

True. And thats funny. But Adams suggests Trump is 200 IQ. Will be interesting to see if the left slanders DeSantis just as fanatically. I think they will, and it will vindicate Trump a little.

Re: When is it time to load up on bonds.

Is the future of the US to become Japan or Argentina/Venezuela? Biden is getting away with very high inflation. No riots in sight.

The majority of voters are ignorant and will vote themselves into communism. We live in a republic and Newsom violated our constitutional rights of religion and assembly with his curfews and house arrest. All while the overflow hospital facilities stayed empty

Re: Anybody got Beef with the Dispatch, Jonah Goldberg, David French etc.

Public unions can agree to vote for candidate X, if candidate X gives them a raise. Any why not, tax dollars are unlimited. Starbucks can explain to the union that they'll all go broke if wages go over $X

How do we weaken public unions without violating freedom of assembly

You libertarian types dont get it. When there is an EMERGENCY like a SURGE in PCR+ tests, you are going to need to do what you are told. Just voluntarily mask up and we wont have to force you to.

yeah the oligarchs let an intern set that up. Tight budget. Biden is trying to unify, not distract from the crumbling pandemic narrative and resultant record inflation.
