Did you know that for data they outsource the collection?

Re: Scott Walker Wants Canadian Border Wall

I would like to see the engineering drawings for building a wall down the middle of Lakes Superior, Huron, Erie, Ontario, Puget Sound, and the Saint Lawrence River. I am sure Donald Trump can pull it off.

Re: Texas secession - again

Texas secessionists launch petition drive for vote to break away

That is going to be one longass wall, separating themselves from Oklahoma, Arkansas, New Mexico, and Louisiana. But heck, if they want to pay for it, OK by me.

Re: Rally for Secession Fails

If support for the secession of Alabama from the United States can be measured in rally attendance, it's safe to assume Alabama won't be seceding any time soon

See, that's their problem. They held the rally in Alabama. If they wanted [more]

Larry King - on fading out

We stopped back at the Kings’ house to pick up Karl Engemann, Shawn’s 85-year-old father. He is a sweet and gentle man, and an observant Mormon. King introduced me to his father-in-law and started in on one of his riffs about how religion is a [more]

Re: Creating Your Own BRK Dividend Question

Two questions:

One answer, and one which I acknowledge is purely psychological, makes no sense, but I cannot shake it.

Re: Joe Biden and the Democratic Vacuum

Well Goofy you say not sketchy but they are all issues that have come up with her fingerprints on them. It just gets old that there is that much baggage she lugging around with her.

Re: Joe Biden and the Democratic Vacuum

Come on, you can put your time to use helping to establish a new party of Progressives. Why waste your remaining years on the side of Oligarchs?

Re: Fed to raise rates why?

And here we were told that the problem was that banks wouldn't lend on houses that were underwater (i.e. homes upon which the current mortgage was more than the current appraised value during any of those years). Who knew that the Goofster had the [more]

Trump the Traitor

I found this thought provoking, and not in the way the title suggests:

Donald Trump, Traitor To His Class

These two elements of Trumpism are intimately connected. In American politics, the two-party system, no less than [more]

If you disagree with my above assertions, you may be very clever at explaining why. However, if you disagree with my above assertions, you will be wrong.

Re: Fed to raise rates why?

Leaving rates this low for this long after a recession ended (sometime in 2009) is not evidence of more sense than they're given credit for - just the opposite.

Re: Fed to raise rates why?

Lastly, to add to your wonderful observation, I've been hearing and reading that the Fed can't take into account the effect of low oil prices because it is transitory. For the love of Pete! What price variation isn't transitory? Housing? Rentals? [more]
