Re: Stock Trading Bill

It's important to focus on the legislators themselves as not only can they benefit from insider trading, they actually can write legislation that can directly affect the stock price. Yes, and they can write legislation that benefits companies they plan to join after they leave Congress. Nothing is ...

Re: U.S. four-star general warns of war with China in 2025

What benefit would it be to China to go to war with the USA or any other country at this point in time. The economies of the U.S. and China are so intertwined that war with each other would cause serious, long-term damage to their economies. If China is to go to war it would probably be with a coun...

Re: Stock Trading Bill

This bill sounds good but I don't know it applying it to the spouse and dependents is Constitutional; I hope it is. I was looking over the wording in the bill and it looks pretty good. Once the bill is enacted, all members would be required to place their investments in a blind trust within 120 days...

Re: Interesting Report on Who Died From COVID

Yah well, a lot of Independents aren't really independent. They might make that claim but then only vote for Republicans. Just like we have around these parts.

Re: Interesting Report on Who Died From COVID

The independent numbers are interesting. It seems there numbers are very high. In the article, the Pew Research Center said Independents tend to lean 48% to Democrats and 39% to republicans so it's not surprising the number of deaths among Independents would be closer to the death rates for the two...

Interesting Report on Who Died From COVID

The Voice of San Diego is a digital, nonprofit news organization that covers San Diego County. They cover stories more in-depth than the local news media and they usually only do one news story per day. They did a study of who died from COVID by political party during the two years of the pandemic. ...

Re: U.S. four-star general warns of war with China in 2025

I wouldn't put too much stock in this since it's only one person's opinion and like they say, opinions are like noses; everyone has one. About 1977, a MSgt (E-8), who was also our First Sergeant and on our squadron bowling team, told me we'd be at war with Russia within five years. I disagreed with ...

Re: fake Congressman George Santos

I've known a couple of people similar to Santos. I worked with a guy back in the 80's, a guy in his early twenties. Literally, if he had just come in out of a pouring rain, soaking wet, and you asked him the weather, he'd tell you it was sunny outside. I came to think that he believed every bit of ...

One of the things the computer has allowed to do is to spell words correctly with auto-correct. While it's helpful it also hurts in that we don't concentrate as much on learning and retaining the correct spelling of words. So, with this in mind what word(s) do you have trouble spelling. For me it's ...
