Re: Stock scream room

Nice recovery today. I’m almost sorry to see it. O0 Yeah, this seemed to be the first bona-fide "flight to safety" with some staying power that I've seen in a while. I think my portfolio is at an all time high. Let stocks "correct" all they need to. If it keeps up I'll be trading some long bonds an...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Yeah, Trump wants to reduce immigration from the current insane levels, and therefore he hates Mexicans, Africans, Asians, etc. Trump points out that Democratic leaders are doing a terrible job at improving places like Baltimore, and therefore he is racist against African-Americans. Ergo, we have a...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

My, except for the spam that got through it's getting pretty boring around here. So does anyone remember how the Republicans were all over Obama for the mass murders that happened on his watch? And that included the elementary school shooting in Sandy Hook, the Las Vegas country concert shooting, th...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I don't recall Trump running as a fiscal conservative in 2016. To quote Hillary Clinton, "what difference does it make at this point". G.W. Bush ran as a fiscal conservative and added $6 trillion dollars to the debt. The only difference between Dems and Repubs on this issue is that Dems believe in ...

Re: Data Breach Omnibus Thread

According to what I've read the data that was hacked was stored in Amazon's Cloud Storage and the hacker was a former Amazon employee. So it was another inside job which has been the case with every hack I was personally involved with in my IT career. They said it was a "poorly configured firewall"...

Re: Weird Weather

and a reminder that global warming can include local cooling. Yes, I learned that from the movie "The Day After Tomorrow". Actually, I learned that the oceans can even freeze. Hopefully Sophie is preparing to move away from NYC before the floods come. I'm not really skeptical of the science, just t...

Re: Mueller's Testimony

After a little nosing around, I see that Mueller has appeared before Congress a total of 88 times since 1990. Many, if not all, of those appearances were videotaped and are available on the internet. I went back and reviewed just a couple of clips from the last few months. Absolutely nothing in his...

He does love to troll his opponents. And it seems to work ...
