Well, in talking with my former colleagues, they are very busy now. And in talking with people in the golf business outside of the Palousian wasteland, business is better. And of course, health insurance companies continue to flourish. :kisswink: Whoopie anecdotal! I have a relative about to declar...

Re: Chinese Trade War

So Trump turns up the heat on Xi, and now Xi is saying N Korea is headed in the right direction. Makes it look as if China was actually calling the shots.

Where's MJ#1 and #2 to tell us this was all due to Obama's leading from behind.

Re: RE: Re: Chinese Trade War

The article points out Xi has few good options. Taking a meeting with Trump at G20 or face more tariffs? That's a lose lose for Xi. I think you overestimate China. Trump's been kissing business ass all around China's neighbors. Let's send our business to those guys. We already sent “our business” t...

Well well. Seems the FBI didn't actually even get to see the Crowd strike report on the Russian hacking of the DNC.

I think Hanauer nails it here. Average Americans are more educated and more productive than ever but the wealth gap increases. Education isn't the problem, consolidated wealth and power is. Talk about wealth redistribution... I'll be curious to see Ganny's and AZ's take on this. For all the genuine...

I know Trump is a con man. But I'm also able to be intellectually honest and admit he's done some good things and had positive accomplishments.
