Re: For those who need reassurance that backing Trump is the right thing to do

Good points by Tucker Carlson last night too. He’s been on a roll lately. https://youtu.be/NS-bsetu01w Skip the first 2 minutes if you don’t need the rehash of of the previous night’s appearance by Mike Braun (R-IN) although it does set the rest of it up. Yes, he has been quite forceful lately, but...

Re: when "google it" became usless

The search engines are all a bit different and “the best” is very subjective. I use Duck Duck Go by default but if I’m really looking for something sometimes I also try Google and Bing. YouTube itself is actually the world’s #2 search engine. There used to be (and maybe still are) search aggregators...

Re: An outsiders perspective of the politcal turmoil

There is no "average American". There's conservatives & liberals who will always stay on their end of the spectrum and vote accordingly, and a centrist population straddling the two sides. It's that centrist population that decides the election (voter turnout among the other groups is a factor too,...

Yes, people are most certainly using them wrong. Yes, I am sure I am using it wrong.

Re: An outsiders perspective of the politcal turmoil

Back to the original topic... I saw this posted by an acquaintance on social media: "Agree to disagree" is reserved for things like "I don't like coffee". Not racism, homophobia, and sexism. Not human rights. Not basic common decency. If I unfriend you during this, it IS personal. We do not have a d...

But as a shareholder myself it's probably not an irrational thing to do - if you can avoid the "racist" label or even having your company attacked and office buildings burned down by rioters.
That's a bad strategy because as we are now seeing, the mob is never satisfied.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

The best theory I've heard about why this has been the case is because in the hot weather states we stay inside with the circulating A/C on. I have heard the theory that northern locations had the biggest problems earlier because everyone stays inside with the heat on, but southern locations are ha...
