Re: The Permanent Mental Health Regime

Guys, what do you do to make sure you stay mentally and emotionally healthy? As I've gotten a bit older, and a bit wiser, I've devised strategies to help keep my mind healthy. My teen years and early twenties were an absolute disaster in particular. It's better, but I still struggle sometimes. Some...

Re: Figuring Out Religion

Two Types of People Points to ponder: A. Is one Type better than the other? B. Are both Types necessary? C. Does evil have to exist in order to understand good, or vice versa? D. Do people go back and forth between these two types, or just slide somewhere along the scale in only one direction? E. W...

Re: Figuring Out Religion

Do you try to justify yourself? https://www.lhm.org/dailydevotions/default.asp?date=20190711 Did you ever ask a question so messed up it not only wasn't right, it wasn't even wrong? That's what I see happening with the lawyer who decided to test Jesus. "Teacher," he asks, "What shall I do to inheri...

Re: The Green New Deal

“The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all. Do you guys think of it as a climate thing? Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” - Saikat Chakrabarti link I think of it as how can we most quickly turn America...

Re: Why are older gold coins often pricier than new ones?

For example, 1 oz gold krugerrands. Random year is cheaper than 2019 coins, fine. 1980 coins are on sale at Apmex, but they are more expensive than 2019 issue coins. Are they collectors’ items or something? I think the answer to your last question is yes. At some point gold coins take on a numismat...

Re: Epstein

You've got to wonder. . . Why now? And for whom (or for what faction) was Epstein amassing control files? It crossed my mind to ask what monumental event(s) might be about to occur that would require something this scandalous to divert the public's attention? I don't know what you have in mind but ...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Shall we also ban face masks for bank robbers? My point is this: If your intent is to enforce the law, as opposed to continually standing down, it doesn't matter one hoot whether the perp is wearing a face mask or not. The jail strip search pretty much bares all. A ban on masks for bank robbers pro...

Re: How do you invest the Cash portion?

T bills for me too. Some of it is in various money market accounts at Fidelity and Vanguard for convenience sake but basically if I have a big bunch of cash it goes into T-Bills. As for why I do this, it's because that was what HB suggested in his book and also the authors of the newer book by the f...
