Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Not sure if anyone’s noticed, but the flow of information on the internet has changed a bit since Drudge was a “major influence” TWENTY YEARS AGO. I may travel in too small of circles but almost everyone I talk to about politics who identifies as a conservative or right leaning libertarian still sa...

Re: Unit 29155

A Russian military intelligence unit has had the decades-long goal of destabilizing Europe. But that's ok, let's like make friends with Putin. :P https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_29155 based on https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/08/world/europe/unit-29155-russia-gru.html I wonder what the decades lo...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I don't know what will be on the news tonight with all the networks except Fox but I really don't need to watch to make a prediction. The main topic of conversation will be the godawful thing that Donald Trump did or said that day which will be the most outrageous thing that any American president ...

Re: Syria

Trump and the military/intelligence services know the most of anyone, and there are many varied opinions, I don't think the issue is knowledge, it's just different opinions and perspectives. Some general might say, "hey, if we leave them to their own devices, ISIS is going to take over and train pe...

Syria

It's really hard to figure out what is going on over there what with Turkey, the Kurds, Isis, Assad, etcetera. Damn if I can figure any of it out. Does anyone here really understand a bit of it? What I do wonder about is why in the hell is the whole goddamn thing the problem of the U.S. taxpayer? Th...

Re: Investment locations?

I would not waste valuable space in tax deferred accounts to hold any interest bearing instruments with no potential for large gains at any where near these levels .that space is way to valuable to take up with investments that pay so little No. Tax deferred accounts expose your gainful investments...

Re: Baseball?

Big baseball fan when I was younger but not so much nowadays.

I could give you all the statistics of the L.A. Dodgers (Koufax and company) back then but the game has gotten far too boring since then.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

When it comes to those on the left standing up for the "truth" I think you need only look to judge Kavanaugh. On the one year anniversary of his confirmation to the supreme court there was a group of protesters outside the supreme court building protesting that they had put an "obvious" sexual preda...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Is it just me, or is the crop of 2020 Dems unusually filled with liars? I don't try to memorize the offenses, but I'm pretty sure several of them have proven track records of lies. And I can think back to the same thing in other years. John Kerry, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Hillary. Usually they are in...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

The Democrat Congress and Presidential candidates seem to be doing everything in their power to alienate independents and even moderate Democrats. If everything goes on as it is, Trump will win in a landslide and the Republicans will take back the House and keep the Senate. The George McGovern/Rich...

Re: New investments?

I'm retired so I don't have a lot to think about in regards to "New Investments". Just starting my SS benefits this year after delaying to age 70 and I have been running a bit of a surplus lately so it is something to think about now. My wife still works and her 401k investments are apportioned each...
