Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Those figures presuppose China has been on the level with their numbers. Nothing about that country or the history of its ruling party causes me to believe that.

Re: Berned Out

Politically I've always seen Sanders as basically a commie light and there is no way I'd have ever voted for him. But while he may have been a bit of a political nut, he was a relatively honest nut. And that is a rare quality in politics.

Re: Stock scream room

I will officially freak out at 3082. Not before. Instead of freaking out, get a plan in place in case you're wrong, imo. We are in a trading range right now, and I have a plan for both bull and bear cases. Mind you, my portfolio is obviously biased to the bear case so I'm right there with you in ex...

Re: YouTube Junkie

I can get everything else done that a cell phone can do better or faster or both in some other way. ESPECIALLY when I am home. Vinny How do you text? My adult children, friends and GF using texting as their main form of communication. When my phone rings, I expect to hear a human voice. If you want...

Re: Falling Victim to a $10,000 Bitcoin Scam

The word "scam," when following the word "Bitcoin," is redundant.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

My view of the census: It'll be a cold day in Hell before I volunteer information about my household's demographics given the very real possibility of civil unrest. Are census data for specific addresses public record? I.e., anyone can search census data to find out how many people live at a specif...

The only way I am sure Trump is still alive is if he is lying about something.
