Re: It's nice to get some recognition for one's work

I wonder how many tech-oriented people and coders are as into gold and as wary of stocks as you are. I would think it's a small club, but you never know. You might be surprised. I've known quite a few anarchist programmers, and they tend to be gold-heavy from what I can tell. I am one. Not an anarc...

Re: Democrats reversal on illegal immigration

Yet another indicator of hypocrisy. National debt terribly bad when GOP in congress and Dem in white house. Debt conveniently not discussed by GOP when reversed. Actually not discussed by anyone anymore. I think they realize we've crossed some event horizon we can't return from and better to stay si...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

If you listened to the 60 minutes interview of the woman he raped and read her story, Turner should have gotten much more than the time he did. If I was king... I've been drunk many times in my college years and doing something like that never, ever, crossed my mind. And certainly not when sober. I ...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Here is the most interesting thing to me -- the people Trump has pardoned: https://www.justice.gov/pardon/pardons-granted-president-donald-trump Most sentences were WAY lighter than I would have expected. Like this below. One year for 5kg of cocaine? Michael Anthony Tedesco Offense: Conspiracy to po...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

Not sure if this deserves a separate thread, but what do people think of the recent pardons/commutations?

Re: Wuhan, China Corona Virus 2020

"But the WHO and CDC are covering up this inconvenient fact in order to protect communist China" Dammit, does everything in this world have to be a potential conspiracy with two sides. Can't we just all settle on one truth when something this bad is happening? Meanwhile stock futures are green again...

Re: Patent pending

tech, I've worked for companies that made it a point to file as many patents as possible. But I currently work for a company that simply keeps things secret and encrypts/secures code when necessary through hardware means. I loved the patent bonuses and the recognition, but for keeping IP from gettin...

Re: the New Way Forward Act

Here are a few clips. Again, I am not for or against this...it seems it will never gain enough support anyway. Tell me what will destroy America? I am not seeing anything that will hamper capturing illegals, only that when it happens, the resolution of the cases has to happen faster? ------------ ‘‘...

Re: the New Way Forward Act

Has anyone truly read this and did all the text replacements as the document shows? I suspect the reality lives somewhere between the end of the republic as Carlson paints it and the beautiful reasonableness Garcia paints. All this does again is divide us. I picture my 87 year old dad watching Carls...
