    Judgement

    I never said he was or wasn’t but that was never the topic, nice straw man. You’ve presented a great case that he was a racist and I’m not going to rush to the Internet to prove or disprove, I’ll acknowledge your professional search engine skills. It was said that the issue of marijuana was an...

    Judgement

    Anslinger has said years before that marijuana wasn’t of concern, I don’t remember the quote but he said something to the effect of, absurd fallacy, when he was asked about mj causing people to become violent or act strange. However when faced with losing his job, one he had only held for a...

    Judgement

    The criminalization wasn’t racist, it’s widely known that Anslinger knew that his entire department was going to be eliminated at the end of prohibition. He had said years before he didn’t think it (mj) was of any danger or concern and it wasn’t, as long as his department had bootleggers to...

    Some Children born out of country to US troops and Americans no longer automatic US citizens

    I am about 99% certain that there’s at least 2 posters in this thread that haven’t bothered to read the actual policy or the clarification statement that was issued.

    Some Children born out of country to US troops and Americans no longer automatic US citizens

    If this administration, or any ftm, were modifying a rule/law/regulation/policy to increase its oversight your point would be valid, regardless of who it was. This is simply restating an existing rlrp and memorializing so there’s no confusion when it’s enforced. It’s no different than Gorsuch...

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

    The euros appreciate our stance now, a couple of years or so back it was a different story. Decorum aside, Trump and his team have been effective, imo, precisely because they haven’t approached trade politically they’ve approached it for what it is, business and you always negotiate from your...

    Trump admin rescinds approval for immigrants in the US seeking medical treatment not available in their home country. They must leave by Sept 9

    This reminds me of Buffett saying he doesn’t oppose higher taxes, ok, then write a check to the gvt, nothing stopping you.

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

    China's has a few strings pulling on it beyond the current trade distractions. The Chinese gvt is looking at issuing a China gvt backed crypto that will still be controlled by the state owned banks, so they want to replace their worthless fiat currency with a less than worthless crypto currency...

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

    Not sure if you saw but China currency hit a 10 yr low, just the threat of American co’s leaving is causing major upheaval.

    Some Children born out of country to US troops and Americans no longer automatic US citizens

    No it’s really not, I might disagree with a law I might consider the law or regulation as overreach but if they enforce a law on the books that’s what they’re supposed to do. To combat that we have to elect officials who will remove bad laws and gvt overreach from the books, iow, don’t like the...

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

    I’m not sure where it starts, Austria or even France or Denmark, none of those would be a big surprise, from what I’ve read Macron is being pressured heavily to review France’s position, obviously Poland as part of the visegrad group has already voiced their displeasure, and Spain is a wild card...

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

    I don’t disagree with anything you just said in fact I think you understand this in a way most don’t. My point is that everything you posted, to my way of thinking, emphasizes the precarious nature of the economic footing of the EU. So now I’ll say what I’ve been hinting at, imo and it’s jmo...

    Some Children born out of country to US troops and Americans no longer automatic US citizens

    So when people say we don’t need more laws and regulations we just need to enforce what whats on the books what they really mean is: enforce selectively and add or subtract based on what I deem appropriate, and regardless if it comes from this administration, act with righteous indignation based...

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

    I’ve found it strange, there’s a lot about what happened out there but not much in the way of detail, I suppose that’s what they do it for, the g7 (as all of these summits are) is the dog and pony show and all the grooming is done in private. My opinion, for what it’s worth is, there’s a concern...

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

    I haven’t had a chance to read anything yet, I’m, to quote that famous trio of the past, leaving on a jet plane later this morning and I’ll grab copies of most of the papers to read on the plane, at that point I’ll give you a more thoughtful reply. My initial reaction is that it doesn’t...

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

    M My opinion is that in the next 30 days you’re going to hear that most, if not all of the added, read new, tariffs have been lifted, that’s not the same thing as a trade agreement and it doesn’t have to be. I think though that by the end of October you’ll see the framework of, if not a...

    Cim had a professional life change so, like me, no consistency of time, he may play but he’s not going to run it. A word of caution- unless you want to use the spreadsheets I foolishly created when I was helping Cim, (damn you Cim for not warning me) use the honor system, much less time...
