Re: Next Up: Lancaster PA

I agree completely on the political ramifications and I’m not rationalizing anything. It’s similar to the wealth inequality argument. The poor just need to work harder and make better decisions. Buying a TV, car, or home you can’t afford is irrational. That doesn’t mean that at some point the serfs...

Re: Political memes, Posters, Funny Pics, Etc.

Did the Minnesota governor or Minneapolis mayor force Flloyd to take enough fentanyl to kill him? Having fentanyl in your system and dying from a fentanyl overdose are different. I haven't seen a report from a credible source that says Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose. Toxicology (see attached rep...

The bank announced plans to start returning employees to the offices. We will learn 30 days before I return date and it will begin in the Fall. Everyone should be back in the office by Spring 2021.

We're going to need a new term - I'm not sure if that term has the racist connotations it sounds like it does, but even if it doesn't it just sounds bad and that's enough these days to make something verboten (crap, can I even use the word verboten?).

Sadly, I disagree. For one, Trump is incapable himself of national leadership - it's just not what he does, he's a disruptor and that's all that he knows to do. He's chaotic and as such, sometimes he'll even hit on some good ideas almost by chance (e.g. China as an enemy of the US). However, he's a...
