Re: Joe Biden fans?

I am considering voting for a Democrat, provided they are not a lunatic. That however, is a pretty short list. Both Bloomberg and Biden are wrong on most of the issues I care about. But they are not nuts or morally bankrupt. And I am reliably informed they can read and write. As for the others... I ...

Re: Joe Biden fans?

Re: Tesla Motors

Looks like a combination of irrational exuberance and a classic short squeeze. Tesla has been one of the more heavily shorted stocks for a while and the recent run up has absolutely murdered the shorts. So there has been a scramble to "cover" their positions before they loose even more money. Which ...

A recording of Charles Lightoller, second officer of the Titanic, describing his experiences during and after the sinking. There are a (very) few key people on the Titanic whose actions saved hundreds of lives, and he was one of them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WT8W1E3ctvs Also, I highly recom...

Re: Who Killed Kennedy?

Should probably ask Chuck Schumer. He warned Trump that if you piss off the intelligence agencies they have "six ways to Sunday" to come after you. Maybe he should be put under oath and asked to reveal what he knows that led him to make that statement? (Note: I generally pay very little attention t...
