Re: Trump as tragicomedy

While you folks are busy being offended by words, people of asian descent are being actually harmed by college admission policies e.g. Harvard, Yale, etc which actively discriminate against them. Not only doesn't this bother most of you, but you have never even thought of it.

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

Kung flu is racist? So the majority here really see it as racist and not simply a joke?

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

There are weeks of reporters from many networks all calling it the Chinese /town name virus (you can find them on YouTube) History is full of flu’s being named by location. Smith: Trump purposely called it that. He’s not going to let left wing turkeys tell us what words are and aren’t acceptable. Ha...

Re: Forum Members with COVID-19

I doubt anyone is sure, but don’t take NDAIDS eg Advil, Naproxen, etc as I saw at least one article suggesting it may worsen things. Don’t remember details.

Re: Kavanaugh

. I have no doubt that on the left the narrative will continue that the Republicans put an attempted rapist on the high court by covering up the evidence against him and not allowing women to speak "their truth". The right will continue to believe that the Dems used dishonest smear tactics. I happe...

Re: Kavanaugh

Moda, I started thinking Ford was sincere and her story need to be looked into. OTOH Kavanaugh's testimony was very credible and was also that of someone who was sincere. In addition Kavanaugh has what, 65 women writing letters attesting to his character. Offenders tend to repeat and not just have o...

Re: Kavanaugh

This whole thing is obviously a left-wing hit job. Agree. Moda imagine if after Dan Rather's fake documents were discredited** someone came up with another and worse fake document. And than another. You don't see it this way, but most of us (and based on polls lots of voters) do see it this way. **...

Re: The Intellectual Dark Web: A home for heretics of all stripes

Reasonable minds can differ is an obvious (I would argue) statement. Alas today many look at things as you must believe our dogma (subject to weekly revision) or we will totally destroy you. Dave Ruben has nice podcasts. A married gay man, certainly not a conservative (classical liberal is how he id...

Re: Alternatives to selling stock for mortgage down payment

Thanks everyone--sell the stocks it is. Don't ever buy on credit unless you can pay off totally when the first payment is due. No matter how good it sounds, it isn't. Do not mortgage yourself to someone else. YMMV Mountaineer--I'd have to sell all the non-retirement accounts investments, take the $5...
