Re: Texas Statewide Proposition 9, November 2019 Election

I know many of you gush about Texas, but I just looked at my property taxes, and they exceed 2% of the value of my property, which is pretty bad in my view. It's not a low tax State... it could be depending on your holdings and your sources of income. It's a mixed bag. Yes, it's a mixed bag: No inc...

The Epstein memes are superb.
I haven’t seen those, but there are some great limericks on twitter.
If you two are going to make comments like that, you could at least post a couple examples for the group. >:D

Re: Countering medical cost myths

58 and take 3. Mediocre genes. Or zealous MDs on the preventive med bandwagon. Most people aren't like this crowd though. Your typical 65 year old is on: aspirin +/- Plavix, a statin, 2-3 blood pressure meds, 2-3 diabetes meds, 2-3 pain medications, an antidepressant or two, a proton-pump inhibitor...

Re: Countering medical cost myths

The average 30-year-old is on SEVEN (7) prescription medications?? And 70 is pretty old, I guess, but TWENTY-SIX drugs is the average?? I read that 90% of those over 65 are taking either blood pressure or cholesterol medications. But I'm as astounded as you are by each of the stats you cited. I've ...

Re: The Republican Brain?

pug, You call that left wing propaganda. I submit that it is done on both sides, for whatever reasons. It's been climate based scare tactics by the left side for quite a while. They do themselves a huge disservice by putting dates on this stuff. 12 years to go right? Why would anyone do that? You j...

Re: The Republican Brain?

The Republican Brain: The Science of Why They Deny Science- and Reality ? Define 'science'. Left wing propaganda? Failed doomsday predictions from the last 50 years "based on science". The list is impressive. 1966: Oil will run out in 10 years 1967: Famines by 1975 1968: Worldwide overpopulation 19...

Re: How do you invest the Cash portion?

Does that whole process now seem like the Dark Ages compared to now? I also used to buy tons of stamps back and write a lot of checks. Now it's only a handful of stamps used ALL year and not that many checks written. Vinny Yeah... except just remember... common everyday email is NOT ENCRYPTED. If y...

Re: Agree or disagree?

I disagree. On the contrary, the left has actually made everything about identity politics instead of character and merit.

As far as maturity, if masculinity were not so repressed and frowned upon (again, by the woke left), men would be a lot more mature a lot sooner.

Re: MCD

You gotta know what to order. Coffee is excellent. ice cream cones rival DQ at a better price. the McDouble ia way better than quarter pounder at a better price ($1.69 here). Have two! the egg McMuffin is great, but only when on sale (use the app, or the current ongoing special is 2 for $4), no valu...
