Re: Like Access to ePLAYA? Last Best Chance To Save Net Neutrality Today!

I for one trust the "greed" of big corporations--which after all we all are shareholders of and thus the beneficiaries--over the tyrannical over-reach of the federal government every day of the week.

Re: Like Access to ePLAYA? Last Best Chance To Save Net Neutrality Today!

There is another side to New Neutrality. Before 2015 we didn't have it and things were fine. The problem is with Net Neutrality what you have now is what you're going to get. There is no incentive to innovate because there is no reward in doing so. That's what makes capitalism work so well. Now if y...

Re: Politics, Everyday, All day... morning, noon and night....II

It will only add to the deficit if we keep the miserable rates of return (GDP growth) of the Obama years. But if we get growth over 3%, which historically is where we ought to be, then the growth in the economy will eclipse the "cost" of the tax cuts and return a positive (read: cut the de...

You say you are a half million ahead, how much is that after you take the actual inflation rate into consideration? Zero. I look at my 401(k) and it has appreciated nearly $400,000 since Donald Trump was elected. Considering it would have likely lost around $100,000 if Mrs. Clinton had been elected...

I only used the people from 2017, trying to be current. I didn't mention Trump (or Bill Clinton) because, as guilty as they may well be, they're (comparatively speaking) old news.

But should you manage to get arrested in China for shoplifting and facing a jail sentence and the President intervenes and gets you released, your father should show at least some class and say "Thank you." That's really quite enough.

Say what you want, but since the rich pay the most taxes and the poor, by definition do not, who else should get the tax cuts? Certainly not those sucking off the public teat of governmental largess.

According to Curt Gentry in the book, "The Last Days of the Late, Great State of California" the bear on the flag, which indeed became extinct in the 1920s, was actually known as Ursus horriblus Californicus. One bad ass bear I would imagine.
