Re: The Dawning of a Golden Decade

356 pages? I'm glad I have a lot of spare time and that I read fast.

Re: Would You Take This Risk?

As you guys know, I'm a fan of using balanced funds in place of the stock/bond/cash portion of the PP. (At least for people outside the U.S., who really need some international exposure.) I've got a nuanced question for all of you brilliant people on the forum. I'm going to try and make this as suc...

I recommend that you splurge and buy an insulated metal cup to take with you on your walks.
It's not the same "feeling."

Oh god, I sound like such a diva.
Starbucks sells ones with their logo on it. Wouldn't that be good enough?

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

I remember when Trump was campaigning he said that he would tackle the debt with unequivocal action. He said that if we allowed the debt to hit $22 trillion "we're going to be like Greece." *Looks at U.S. debt* :P Fine, but what would you have him do? Veto every spending bill? That would be fine wi...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Black professionals have to endure this kind of treatment because a large percentage of crime is done by black people. It's that simple. Even black cops treat black people with more care than they treat white people. If you want to call that racism, then fine, call it racism, but it's not going to ...

I don't feel we have heard the last of Hunter Biden and Tara Reade just yet. Seems it would be to the RNC's benefit to have these issues reemerge again in say........October maybe.
Yes, assuming that Biden is actually going to be the nominee. That's not a sure thing.

Re: Let the investigations begin

Interesting article - you can tell that it's a bit biased in its outlook, but it provides a nice "birds eye view" of the landscape. It makes Watergate look mild in comparison. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2020/05/27/what_the_obamagate_scandals_mean_and_why_they_matter.html Amid the fl...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

ALSO. (And sorry for the rapid fire posts.) I've come up with a solution to the death by a thousand cuts phenomenon that occurs when you buy coffee every day. I'm going to keep some of those coffeeshop to-go cups at home and drink my homemade coffee out of that during my daily walks. This seems to ...

Re: An historic day

Yeah, thanks. Just read this after quitting my yard work on a very hot day. Now I'm motivated to go outside and get back to work some time before lift off. If the sky was clear, like it surprisingly is today, we could see the space shuttle launch even though it was over a hundred miles away. This i...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I think, ironically, a failure of the U.S. bond market and the dollar would precipitate the greatest period of outperformance for the PP. Ever. And Technovelist would be the richest man in Texas. I doubt I'd be the richest man in Texas, because I'm pretty sure there are people here who have 1% in g...

Mitch Albom: Hey, President Donald Trump, her name is Gretchen Whitmer She has a name. It is not "the woman." It is Gretchen Whitmer.
