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: Kavanaugh

The bigger picture is that this is just another day in the life of the "by any means necessary crowd" who have not yet hit bottom.

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...

Alternatives to selling stock for mortgage down payment

Buying my first house so I'm new to all of this. I was going to put 20% down and I'd get a 3.375% mortgage. However I realized that selling off stocks, etc is not optimal tax wise so I'm looking for alternatives. I ran across things called a. pledge assisted mortgages and b. margin loans. Thoughts o...

Re: 2018

Maddy, 1. I agree that MGs boxes and the idea of looking at all the different facets of aging are something worth discussing, though I don't have the biochem/expertise to contribute that much. I don't remember if it was one of MGs boxes, but something that does contribute to aging is minimizing bloo...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

The deep state is all too much in charge in many areas.

If Trump were more ruthless and authoritarian as people think, he would have fired Comey day 1, cleaned house as fast as possible and the country would have been better off.
