Re: Jack Bogle has died

I only know of him from a few Youtube videos. What I remember most is being impressed by how mentally sharp he still was for a man his age and I found that encouraging.

My response was to Jackson's seeming double-standard... and as he's someone we action have to interact with on the forum, I felt it was worth responding.
I'm flattered.

Re: Figuring Out Religion

It sounds like burnout was a sad result of: a) "decision theology" - the idea that it is up to you to decide to be a Christian, and b) emphasis on personal experience - as you have indicated and shown, such things can be induced Mountaineer and I (I think I'm speaking correctly here for Mountaineer...

Re: Figuring Out Religion

Stillwaters, I just realized that I had left the "s" off your name in my responses. Sorry! Don't stay under the rock too long before you come back, it was a joy and interesting to converse with you. I have a few questions based on your opening post in this thread about dualities, time, space, etc. ...

Re: Figuring Out Religion

Longtime PP’er and Lurker here. This is my attempt to prime the pump on the Religion thread for 2019! Here is an inquiry that has long fascinated me: The apparent reality that we currently reside seems to be made up of an admixture of various 'Polarity of Opposites". Light/Dark Male/Female Empty/Fu...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

How about this: However, I wonder if she, as a Muslim woman, has any sense of appreciation for her right to say that without having to worry about having her head chopped off. This is fun. Let's try re-writing a whole bunch of other posts and see who can do the best job. That sounds even better. Fu...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

Maybe jackson didn't play sports and thus doesn't know the proper way to deflect a ribbing. A standard "you son of a bitch" would all have been suitable. I would have gone for a "yea, my red burka says MAGA on it," but I have style. Actually I preferred Xan's response because I really did want to k...

I’m shocked. I had no idea JacksonM was a Muslim woman!
I have only a high school education in grammar. How could I have better said what I did to indicate I was not the Muslim woman I was talking about and avoid the confusion?

Re: Limiting tax-deferred savings

This is the year my RMD's start. Also SS since I've been delaying for the max. With my wife still working that's going to put us into a much higher tax bracket than the previous two years of retirement when I had zero income. Best I can figure right now I've discovered the true purpose of my tax-def...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

Of course, it’s just words. Let’s see how the deeds go. (I was about to use the word ‘behavior ‘, but for that I would inevitably be found guilty of white-/man-splaining). Good for you that you even knew that; I can't keep track anymore of what is acceptable to say and what isn't. Best just not to ...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

No pun intended, but I'm trying to wrap my head around the fact that one of the two first Muslim women elected to congress decided that her first public statement after being sworn in was going to be "impeach the mother*****".

Only in America.
