    Dumb/Sometimes LOL Political Pictures

    Ok, so revenues are flat when historically they would have increased, not technically declining. Not sure that minor detail changes the point at all. All that spending you just spoke about is long-term mandatory and is the exact same stuff every other president managed without causing the...

    Dumb/Sometimes LOL Political Pictures

    Maybe the businessman president could explain this. The former non-businessman "CEO" of the our company was able to deal with declining revenue for the company due to hard economic times in 2009 by putting us into significant deficit. And we complained. But, the revenues started increasing as...

    MBB: Texas Tech vs OSU Sat at Noon

    If the refs are gonna watch for tiny slides of the pivot foot starting near the end of the conference season, can they at least watch both teams for it??

    Tweet of the Day

    I cannot imagine that the measure names the current president specifically but it is pretty fascinating that every single news article models this as "congress restraining president Trump" instead of "congress restraining the powers of the presidency." Every single one that I saw of about 20.

    Torturing animals is just part of daily life in China. They have no regard for animals. None.

    I’ve been ranked choice voting in Australia. I didn’t mean his idea as in he created it but he was the only candidate specifically running on it. Given our system I think a 4th place person getting the win for president would be a theoretical risk more than a common issue. And, I think is a...

    The subject that I was talking about was principled voters. You brought up a new subject, stupid voters. I do not have a burden of proof about something new that you brought up. The thing I was talking about was the difficulty faced by principled voters in our "lesser of two evils" system. I...

    It is sort of like 90% of drivers believing they are better than the average driver. All of us think it is the other guy consuming and believing BS while we are the ones appropriately analyzing good sources.

    The stupidity of particular voters has absolutely no relevance to my post as the discussion was about principled voters, not stupid voters. There is no "burden of proof" for me to fix your stupid sideswipe of a post. And, you get the last word if you want it because I will not chase you down...

    The Stock Market is gonna crash!?

    Gotcha. I thought you were saying that particular platform did something. Just like the early 2000s, about the time regular people are talking about stocks, probably time to take a good hard look at what you are doing. Similarly, when I was living in Vegas, and junior airmen were buying...

    The Stock Market is gonna crash!?

    I'm confused. Why would putting thousands in Robinhood be riskier than using Schwab, Fidelity or whatever?

    Democratic Iowa Caucus: "An fing disaster"

    Exactly, with similar but different issues for Native Americans. Which makes saying that the playing field is now basically level kind of like playing a basketball game with the refs blatantly on your side until halftime then bringing in new refs while continuing to play and saying it is now...

    I don't necessarily agree with your contention that only dems are low information voters as I know many democrats that know a hell of a lot more than you or I. Comparing people dumb enough to be put on a right-wing website video to be made fun of vs actual people you associate with then you are...

    One idiot votes in a stupid manner on the current system and that proves that a more functional method of voting would not work. Sure, whatever. Yet another splendid post with logical assessment not far off from hers. Thanks, prof. I suggest not showing this to any of your statistics classes.
