Re: the NFL

Those who voted for Trump have no moral standing to talk about this issue.

Anyone who voted for someone as corrupt and dishonest as Hillary Clinton have no moral standing to talk about *any* issue.

Re: Hillary Lies Yet Again

This woman needs serious help. I'm talking medication. Every stop along the way she has blatantly lied about something. And then when it is easily debunked, she moves on to the next lie.

Re: Single Payer is a Bad Idea

Yeah, and government projects always come in on budget.

You are missing the point. The point is just because the government pays, doesn't mean it gets to dictate. At least it is not working with defense contractors.

Re: Single Payer is a Bad Idea

If I pay for your health care, then I'm going to tell you what to eat and how fast of a mile you're going to run.

Hmmm.. not really. It is not working with defense contractors. Take a look at F35.. 2 decades late and double

Re: Single Payer is a Bad Idea

Lifespans are an incredibly bad measure of health care quality.

Re: Obese & Healthy: No Such Thing

Just read a CME article talking about CHD (coronary heart disease), obesity, and metabolic health (dealing with diabetes, hypertension, and cholesterol). There has been a recent argument that one could be overweight/obese and healthy. This [more]

Re: OT: EXCEL test question

I think another way is to set it up as a vlookup table and try to look up 1 through 5000. The missing number(s) will give you an error.

Thanks for any advice to me as the beginner.

The best advice, whether a beginner or not, is don’t act on stock tips and other advice on internet message boards without doing your own thorough due diligence.
