Re: Summer upstairs, Winter downstairs

The issue in the summer is that to keep the main level upstairs comfortable, the lower level gets incredibly cold, even with all the registers down there closed.

Registers are only approximately closed, even when closed. There's a lot [more]

Re: Benghazi

But, I think the security arrangements were horribly mismanaged

My point is that there are 300 places that need to be protected, and yes, it's 300. (It's actually thousands, of course, because each embassy has people who have to [more]

Re: Denali/McKinley

Trump has already weighed in that he would return the name to Mt. McKinley, calling it an insult to Ohio.

Yes, Republicans are outraged at this insult to McKinley, who they have cared about since, uh, day before yesterday. [more]

Re: Benghazi

Of course there are 300 embassies but that argument is a red herring. I am sure that the emabassy in Copenhagen is pretty safe.

You would have thought the President's residence in Washington D.C. was pretty safe in 1950, too, and you [more]

Though I don't have the figures to back my hunch, if you looked at "pure" on line retail, being revenue from goods sold on line by a firm from their own inventory less cost to do so, I suspect Walmart makes more total net profit on it [more]

Anyone have recommendations for dashcams?

Just got my first one from Amazon yesterday, haven't even set it up yet, so … no. It's a cheapie, so I wouldn't recommend it until I've used it a few dozen hours.

Re: Benghazi

Benghazi was a terrible misjudgement on the part of the Sec of State in not providing appropriate security.

The US has something like 300 embassies and diplomatic missions around the world. I am fairly certain that the Secretary of [more]

Re: WaPo: What Happened To Scott Walker?

I think Sanders v Trump would work out very well for progressives.

Re: When will we get a "tradeable bottom&qu

If you asked me why a -30% to -40% drop might be coming, I would say not because this Bull has been going on for so long, but because this Bull has been going on for so far.

Most likely a year or so from now at -30% or -40% from current levels

Do you have a reason for this, or is it just because this Bull has been going on for so long? Corrections turn into Bears about 40% of the time, but historically [more]

Now to go out and practice backing up.

Re: When will we get a "tradeable bottom"

I got most of the way out a couple weeks ago (market timing doesn't work!) just before the worst of it, so this is now academic to me. But if you held a gun on me and forced me to guess, I'd say: We're actually fairly close. There will probably be a [more]
