My favorite boards and replies to my posts have disappeared. Logging in and out has not helped until today. I had two weeks of unread replies waiting for me. I checked a few and then poof, they were gone again. The message says "you have never [more]

Re: How do you handle these?

I would have handed it back, saying I don't want to waste paper, turned, and closed the door.

Re: How Disgustingly Slimy Are Dems?

Registering voters.

Have someone explain to you what those two words mean. I'm a Democrat and I think everyone who legally can vote should vote, even if they vote Republican.

Re: Dowd on Obama

my 2 cents:

President Obama is a decent guy who above all trusts in the power of good ideas. He is a product of the best educational system money can buy and an expert in the Constitution. He came into office thinking he could simply [more]

Re: Execution

One shot went in and out of his outstretched arm. Was he raising his arm to surrender or lunging toward the officers? He was shot in the head while kneeling, bent over, or lunging toward the officers. See how this goes?

Re: The Crazy Left Explained: Great Essay

The great industrialists, like Julius Rosenwald, earned their money. So it is not surprising he was a Liberal. Now that these trust fund parasites haven't worked for two generations, it is not surprising that granddaughter Nina Rosenwald spends her [more]

Re: marching in straight lines...

The forces that kept them in place were greater than the forces prompting them to run away. You're right about muskets being less accurate. A glance at casualty rates ranged from <1% to 10% killed in most battles. Also, there was the promise of [more]

Thank you for the valuable source. Just in case you don't know, and I'm almost certain you do, PROSHARES TRUST S&P 500 ARISTOCRATS ETF (NOBL) tracks this group. I plan to read this board regularly as stocks get more and more frothy.

Re: One witness's story

Given the history between the mostly white police force patrolling a mostly black community, I think both sides are lying. It will be very interesting to see what the FBI can find.

Re: OT: Considering online coding training

Thanks to all who replied on this thread. I've decided to pursue this as a hobby. I'll start adding popular languages/certifications to my resume and see if anyone shows interest. If not, I've still educated myself.
