Re: Hillary's new book: "It Was My Turn"

The comment was not difficult to recognize as pure satire. The exaggerated font was an essential part of the political commentary being offered--a commentary, incidentally, that this moderator has made abundantly clear is disagreeable to him. If moderation on this forum has come to this, I won't be...

Re: How to convince someone to use HB-PP

In my time publishing portfolio data, I've had the opportunity to talk about investing with a bunch of different types of people. The experience has taught me a lot about how to effectively discuss money with others. In general, trying to convince somebody to invest in a certain way is completely c...

Whose were they, then? He had an accomplice?
It sounds like you read dualstow's post emphasizing the word "his".

Re: Analysis of an anthropological expedition from NPR land into flyover country.

Here's a link to the Ken Stern article: Former NPR CEO Opens Up about Liberal Media Bias For an entire year, I embedded myself with the other side, standing in pit row at a NASCAR race, hanging out at Tea Party meetings and sitting in on Steve Bannon’s radio show. I found an America far different fr...

Re: Trump and sexual harassment and the media

Judging by the number of politicians caught in actions that could be categorized as sexual harassment, pedophilia, or adultery, I would guess that if all prominent members of the US or state governments who have engaged in such behavior were to resign, the stampede out of Washington and state capit...

Re: Trump and sexual harassment and the media

1. I don't believe that Trump knew he was being recorded at that moment. NBC and the Washington Post are hardly unbiased sources, so I don't believe their claim that he knew it. But even if he did, so what? He was saying that women let you do anything to them if you are famous. While crude, that is...

Re: Tax Bill

However, I do recognize that the federal government should not be subsidizing high tax habits. I suppose that is one way of viewing the deductibility of state and local taxes on federal income. For me, the deductibility of state and local taxes is an application of federalism. That is, it seems rea...

Trump and sexual harassment and the media

Michellebell brought up Trump and sexual harassment allegations in the Hilary Clinton thread (that thread is kind of a mess... too many different subjects, and hardly any about Hillary Clinton... blame the moderators :)). I wanted to bring that subject into its own thread. Also, regarding the conver...

Obviously you don't know that he is LITERALLY HITLER!!!!! So if you fail to attack him in ANY WAY, you are a LITERAL NAZI!!!! The purpose of this forum is for people to discuss issues and maybe learn a little bit (about different subjects, and about each other) at the same time. Obviously, we don't...
