Re: The Inflation Spike Probably Won't Last

I've been astounded with how much of my Amazon orders do arrive in two days. In one case the next day when it was supposed to have taken two days. Sorry for hijacking the thread, but am too curious to hold my horses.. Are those 2 days considered a short period ? What about Prime members ? At amazon...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

I tend to think of the internet like any other tool. Can be very useful, or dangerous when used improperly. That goes for everything from shovels, knives, guns, the Bible, hammers, to computers and cell phones. Temptations for improper use abound. Discernment is key quality. I again completely agre...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

There is a lot of disinformation out there. One can just spread it around and compound the problem, or actually take a few minutes to check the facts first. Where do you propose one should go to "check the facts"? Google is your friend here. You can look up many articles and papers describing the C...

a 2.5% hit to gold doesn’t seem so bad.

Apples to oranges. Maher is a comedian and Romney is a politician. It wasn’t a serious submission, hence the “J/K” for just kidding.

I heard today that someone who is unvaccinated is 12 times as likely to die from Covid 19 than someone who is vaccinated. If you stipulated that that is a true fact....would that sway you from being unvaccinated to being vaccinated? Or, are you seeing that either that the odds of you contracting it ...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

On the other hand if Trump wins the nomination he could make DeSantis his running mate and put him in charge of the border like Biden has done with Kamala. Would be an increasing contrast, would it not? So 4 years of Trump, followed by 8 of DeSantis doesn't sound so bad either. Only problem with th...
