He spoke the truth.

And, the Republican party seems to be finally waking up to that, after all the Trump fellow election deniers went down to defeat in the November elections.

So he got beat in the election. Isn’t that good enough? No, the power of the state has to be used to destroy him, his family, and everyone in his orbit. Not just destroy him, but salt the earth from which he sprang. For the greater good. Right? Was it good enough for him to get beat in the election...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

Don't forget the Finnish example. They lost territory and hundreds of thousands of lives by refusing the Soviet offer/demand rather than gain territory and save lives. No certainty as to how it would have played out otherwise but that's what happened. The Polish example and the Finnish one should h...

That refers to non FDIC insured bank failures, and while really interesting (and scary) to read about, it isn't 100% relevant to the discussion. We can also talk about FDIC failing, which would have to assume the Fed Reserve or US Treasury wouldnt step in to help. I think they would step in, as the...

My calculations show this worse deal than Treasury money market. It would only be about annual 4% return if you could replicate every 60 days. Rough estimate 2000 of 300000 is .66 % , x 6 is 3.96. You would be better off buying 2 month Treasury that doesn't have state income tax for sure. Thanks fo...
