I know exactly who you are then.

You’re Pierce Brosnan in Dante’s Peak — except even more dashing! ;D
I can neither confirm nor deny that. :D

Re: A Dallas doctor on her experience treating covid-19 patients

I have never seen anything like this controversy over hydroxychloroquine before. Go to foxnews, especially Laura Ingraham, and you will learn that it is being used effectively to treat Covid-19 all over the world and that it is a very safe drug that has been used for years to treat malaria, lupus, ...

Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

That is excellent.
I'm still predicting Trump, and Republicans in general, win in a landslide in November, if nothing else goes seriously wrong before then.

Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

Vinny, that's because there has been a concerted effort to condition you to instantly label anyone who says anything even remotely positive about Trump as a Trump die-hard fanatic deplorable probably KKK member/Nazi sympathizer/white supremacist etc. Trump is like your garrulous old uncle who you h...

Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

It is indeed hard to beat an incumbent. But Trump is a bit of a special case. Never before in history have we had a president that was anything close to this polarizing. Trump's entire term has been a roller coaster. Trump's actions have polarized a lot of swing voters and people that normally woul...

Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

I predict that Biden won't be the nominee. The most likely way they will fix it is to pick someone else at the convention. Anyone want to guess who it's going to be? Hint: initials are HRC. This has been mentioned before on this board. I just don't see how HRC can be the nominee when she didn't par...

Re: Gold Has Outperformed Stocks Over The Past 20 Years

Gold has demolished stocks over the past 20 years. (Yeah, yeah start date sensitivity. Whatever.) 8.69% CAGR for gold vs 5.62% CAGR for the US stock market. Similar standard deviation while gold has had superior drawdown and worst year metrics. goldvsstocks.png My plan for world domination is worki...

Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

I think it may just be really hard to oust a sitting President running for another term. I couldn't believe it when Obama won in 2012, especially since Scott Brown had just been elected in Massachusetts of all places running on an anti-Obamacare platform. The reason Obama was re-elected is that the...

Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

A Hilary-Trump rematch? Oh that would be special! It would be a lot less sinister and more, well, democratic if another candidate were chosen openly at the convention. In fact, the more I think about it a constitutional crisis could result if the President were effectively appointed by a bunch of b...

Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

Not really surprising. Keep in mind that Trump is repeatedly hammered in the media while Biden has been mostly kept out of sight, and polls are little more than popularity contests at this point. However - I predict there will be some pretext to cancel the debates and limit Biden's public appearanc...
