Re: More Fascinating Connections (Manson and the CIA)

Speaking of Charley Manson I really enjoyed the movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" - the last one I saw in a movie theater as far as I can remember. Like "Inglorious Bastards" (which I thought was a great movie), it's a strange, completely fictional re-telling of history by Quentin Tarantino with...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Economic Club of NY today: "Trump rails on Fed, notes other countries have negative rates: ‘Give me some of that money’ What a d*ck. Negative interest rates are a tax on savers, a direct wealth transfer from regular people with money in the bank, elderly people relying on fixed incomes, pensions, a...

Re: Which camp?

I'm putting this in the category of "okay, even if what you say is true, so what?" It's hard to believe that the process of natural selection favoring a reproductive benefit wouldn't have resulted in some difference between male and female brains. But even if both males and females ended up with id...

Re: Familiar?

No. I was a volunteer, that led volunteers, who mostly did a good job, who mostly loved this country. I would guess close to 0% of modern fighting men (I'm early 30s) would carry that Zippo; they would feel disgraced by it. Vietnam 1969-70. I was going to comment on this but I've learned to keep my...

Re: Which camp?

I observed that the book had 2 reviews on Amazon, one glowingly positive and the other negative. But there were 3 positive reviews to be found online in Slate, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. I've never thought of any of those entities as being go to sources for accurate science but the...

Re: Countering medical cost myths

My 3 kids were born 1974-1977 and I can assure you they have seen plenty of hardship in their lives. So much so that my 23-year old adopted granddaughter just told me she has no intention of ever having kids. Had to tell her I didn't blame her at all, notwithstanding the fact that if I had felt the...

Re: Which camp?

I just finished listening to this woman's presentation on her book: Gender and Our Brains: How New Neuroscience Explodes the Myths of the Male and Female Minds She concluded by saying you are either in her camp or the "Men are from Mars; Women are from Venus" camp. When the latter book came out in ...

Re: Countering medical cost myths

Exactly, and likewise. These Millennials have no idea what having it rough is. Way too coddled. No Americans who were born Stateside after 1945 and who have never been in combat have any idea about hardship. I heard it second-hand from my immigrant parents. My 3 kids were born 1974-1977 and I can a...
