Re: Trump's letter to Pelosi

The letter states that Biden used US military aid to force the firing of a prosecutor who was investigating Burisma where his son was on board. I thought this all has been throuroughly debunked about five dozen times? But...politicians and their families taking nepotistic advantages is wrong. Hunter...

Re: Impeachment failing in battleground states

From sondlands opening testimony it seems like a lot of the Ukraine policy was filtered through Rudy Giuliani. Why does the president involve his private lawyer and a private citizen when conducting government foreign policy? Is Giuliani a firewall? A way to claim attorney client priviledge when con...

Re: Impeachment failing in battleground states

At the end of the day, its all so gross to me that I dont even care anymore. Let it all burn to the ground. I know I speak for a lot of under 40 citizens who really just don't care to vote anymore. Our democracy is a total sham. Sondland donates a million to president Trump...becomes ambassador to E...

Re: Impeachment failing in battleground states

Only because they arent paying attention or just don't care about presidential abuse of power. "I would love to send Ambassador Sondland, a really good man and great American, to testify, but unfortunately he would be testifying before a totally compromised kangaroo court, where Republican’s rights ...

I agree with Dalio's logic. I don't see any appetite for a return to a gold standard type era of monetary conservatism. Is inflation in the cards long-term? That is a much more complicated question. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-05-01/dalio-something-like-mmt-is-coming-whether-we-like...

Re: What Do You Do For Work?

Full time mustachian. As for work, whatever I could do. I've gutted and renovated houses, taught classes, land speculated, parked cars, written local newspaper articles, fixed bikes, washed windows, scrubbed gyms, taken care of dogs, run driving range. None of it glamorous, many times demeaning, alm...

Re: Budget Deficits

I also think it is completely ludicrous to compare Obamas unemployment numbers vs Trumps and not take into effect the business cycles that each president walked into. Obama swore in during an economic holocaust.

Re: Budget Deficits

Obama only ran trillion dollar deficits during first term in wake of biggest economic collapse since 1929. During second term deficits were reduced down to around 450 billion. Trump will be at around 2.5 times that this year with projections to increase should economy slow at all. His "miracle econo...

Budget Deficits

Very little is being said about how economic strength is being bolstered by massive government deficits. Not hard to have 4 percent unemployment during economic expansion when coupled with 1.2 trillion dollar government deficits and zero interest rates. Is this our new normal?

Re: Did you see Joker? What did you think of it?

Saw it last night. Sat next to five year old kid..great parental judgement that one. :o I thought it was very well done. A bit slow at times but you definitely walked out of the theater feeling something. I thought it was an especially dangerous film however in that by making the Joker an anti-hero ...
