As a side bar my wife and i were watching tv and a bizarre commercial came on for the NYT. It was very weird imagery and they kept flashing "truth" on the screen. Pravda anyone?
You can call the material in the NYT a lot of things, but 'truth' is not one of them.

It is actually lack of proper laws and regulations that creates a lot of the situation

The last thing health care needs is more regulations. Less rules would would create a better market based solution. But of course, that's way to Libertarian of a perspective, so never mind.

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

I'm hardly neurotypical, but I confess that my one exposure to Monte Python (a movie about 40 years ago in which the characters pranced around on make-believe horses) left me thinking, "I don't get it!" I generally 'got it', I just never thought it was all that funny. Unlike many friends who though...

Re: Bitcoin as a complement or alternative to gold in the PP

The fact that IRS form 1040 now asks
"At any time during 2020, did you receive, sell, send, exchange, or otherwise acquire any financial interest in any virtual currency?"
leads me to believe that bitcoin might be good for speculating, but not much else.

Re: How does the G-Fund Work?

The federal government is hiring dentists. I believe the retirement "vests" after 5 years, so if you want to work for 5 more years you could do it for the government and get a pension. From what I've been told, the minimum vesting period is 10 years, and then at only a small fraction of your final ...

You basically get the return of ITTs with the stability of a money market fund. In it's entire history the G fund has never went down even for a day.
