Shocking poll results /s
Apparently, inaction has consequences.
What does shock me is why anyone would make a long-term financial decision based on any politician’s campaign promises.

Not sure how to answer. I own guns and hunt and shoot a lot. I have two amazing labs and hunt ducks, pheasants, and grouse every Fall. Yes, I think it’s fun but also enables me to put over 100lbs of protein in the freezer each year. I also shoot a lot of sporting clays and coach the local high school trap and skeet team. I shoot 3,000+ rounds a…[Read more]
It reads in tone and tenor like a Brietbart or Alex Jones commentor. Without a citation or background it’s hard to take credibly.
I think the gay community has the same problems most other communities seem to have these days, a vacuum of leadership. Messages are driven by media and sound-bites and not by real leaders.
It’s interesting, two of my…[Read more]
BHO, “This isn’t a real solution. It’s a political stunt. This is what Washington does whenever there’s a big problem. Politicians pretend they’re looking out for you but they’re just looking out for their poll numbers.”
Also if I recall, when others have done this – it…[Read more]
A buddy just bought a new EV very fancy. Despite its emissions benefits almost every component is loaded with plastics. Same with appliances, building materials, and tons of other stuff. I hope I’m wrong, but market forces to get beyond plastics may be a decade or more behind emission technology.

Please stop evicting, terrorizing, and killing people ahead of my photo opp. Is it too much to ask for a two week pause? Please.

They are changing people’s lives!
This goes into effect next week Tuesday June 21. It blocks all sorts of imports from Xinjiang from cotton to solar panels to pharma ingredients. Are Biden’s handlers really ready to worsen the economy right now? Let’s introduce more supply-chain chaos, regulatory red-tape, and increased costs to the economy ahead of mid-terms! What could go…[Read more]

The former CEO. How is he helping patient outcomes today?
He’s only benefitting the private jet and yacht industry.

In my opinion people will not panic or really revolt until the Big Mac machine stops working. Meaning fast food in general. Poor and other disadvantaged people disproportionately rely upon fast food every day. Worsening food inflation, supply chain issues, fertilizer shortages, etc. will continue to impact supply well into 2023 regardless of…[Read more]
Sorry so gloomy. I agree with most everyone’s points on this thread and zillions of others. I think we’re all screwed. I’m interested in continued JPR perspective on current events since they align most closely to mine. I don’t think there’s any redeeming qualities about our current government and economy and I believe the only changes will come…[Read more]

Shocking! How can this not be intentional? Plausible deniability?
“We do not have an adequate level of control and explainability over how our systems use data, and thus we can’t confidently make controlled policy changes or external commitments such as ‘we will not use X data for Y purpose.’ And yet, this is exactly what regulators expect us to…[Read more]
QuietYooper replied to the topic Retirement savings reform is a good idea that both parties can get behind in the forum General Discussion 2 months ago
Like @dunatus says above, they were concerned about excess savings last year and now we have a war and rising inflation so they can get those idle savings. It should be interesting to see what happens with crypto in the next few years. Most of the young people I talk to are either dabbling or all-in with crypto and they’re not putting much of…[Read more]
it doesn’t mean they won’t stop trying. It’s funny many people younger than me text complete conversations with emojis.
A similar battle is happening with privacy. EU has better-than-average privacy rules (GDPR) but governments are trying to erode its effectiveness with CSA (Child Sexual Abuse) because stopping it is more important than anyone’s…[Read more]

Gee wish I had money to buy stocks of these companies with huge guaranteed future windfalls but this transitory inflation is eating into my discretionary budget. With the exception of Boeing all these stocks are at 5-year highs. Deja vu from 3-years ago with BigPharma and vaccines. I always seem to be on the wrong side of this wealth…[Read more]

Biden waiving ethanol rule in bid to lower gasoline prices
E15, releasing reserves, and gas tax holidays are feeble and temporary attempts to reduce symptoms not the cause. But I guess they look good in pressers.
But we’re up near Scandia in the NE metro. We will do about 50 foot rows which should yield about 50 canned quarts which is plenty for us and the people we share with. The composted manure is ready to go we just need some spring weather so the tiller can get through the soil.
