    Judgement

    where's Rx? I'm just reflecting back on the olden days when the medicine cabinets were awash with Valium, Percocet and the like... are these "opiods" different, and when and why did the change happen?

    Bye Bye Trade War? China Plans $1 Trillion Buying Spree to Reduce US Trade Deficit

    I think it's much more complicated than that... China has $50 trillion "off the books" (according to their financials), half of which they loaned to themselves (banks), and half of which they put in shell companies that purchased US stocks, commodities and real estate. Allegedly, China is...

    Trump "Orders" American companies to find an alternative to China

    I think that you are over simplifying things by a whole lot, for starters, I am not for more government spending, and prefer a balanced budget (any budget would be a huge start). Second, that period that you're referencing just happened to coincide with the baby boomers starting to leave the...

    Trump "Orders" American companies to find an alternative to China

    actually... there is a right and a wrong... and it goes well beyond "opinion". Socialism is wrong (AOC)... Nationalism (Trump) is "opposed", but is not necessarily wrong.

    Trump just hammered the oil market by selling US reserves.... LOL (it's killing Russia, and Saudi has also cut back production to try and boost prices), while the US is selling it's cheap reserves Energy Department Announces Congressionally Mandated Notice of Sale of Crude Oil from the...

    Trump "Orders" American companies to find an alternative to China

    well... actually, IMHO, there is a big difference.... Obama was telling us (citizens) and US Companies not to challenge HIM because he was KING and he knew best what is good for us... Trump, on the other hand, is just signaling to the US businesses that America is not going to be supporting...

    Trump "Orders" American companies to find an alternative to China

    that graph is pretty interesting.... the market didn't do much for decades between 55-85, then once Reagans policies and economy took hold, it climbed like crazy until Slick Willy finally stopped it with his dotCom crash and high taxes... this chart doesn't show it, but hopefully we're in for...

    Trump "Orders" American companies to find an alternative to China

    yawn.... no difference... Barack Obama tells Americans 'don't go to Las Vegas' Obama tells insurance companies to shut up, if they know what’s good for them Obama tells bankers it's payback time Manufacturing Jobs Aren't Coming Back, No Matter Who's President Promise Broken rulings on The...

    Trump "Orders" American companies to find an alternative to China

    Seth dropping out of the race is probably more significant than China trying to keep up with Trump's punishment of their improper trade practices. China is very close to collapse, their debt levels are killing them.... go Donald go

    Trump "Orders" American companies to find an alternative to China

    Trump is saying the things that need to be said. Companies need to understand that if they want to do business in China it will not be receiving help from the US Government. This is the type of transparent communications that we've needed politically for a very long time

    Dumb/Sometimes LOL Political Pictures

    You are correct. Yang is simply yet another idiot offering free stuff to everyone if they'll just give him power (as is the rally cry for all socialists). We already had this guaranteed income discussion about 9 months back, and there was not even one legitimate case made to support that...
