    You say you don't believe in miracles, well I have a story to share

    Thanks, that’s incredibly generous and entirely unexpected. Merry Christmas my friend add: I want to apologize for my diatribe, I’m a little fired up. Because I went over every bill line by line checked it against insurance statements ran that against my sons health plan, (what I was...

    You say you don't believe in miracles, well I have a story to share

    Well here we are on Oct 60th (there’s a backstory here but suffice it to say, Nov has not been kind to our family for the better part of 8 years now, so we simply extend October to 61 days) the day after Thanksgiving and I could think of no better time to update those of you who have asked. We...

    Judgement

    I never said he was or wasn’t but that was never the topic, nice straw man. You’ve presented a great case that he was a racist and I’m not going to rush to the Internet to prove or disprove, I’ll acknowledge your professional search engine skills. It was said that the issue of marijuana was an...

    Judgement

    Anslinger has said years before that marijuana wasn’t of concern, I don’t remember the quote but he said something to the effect of, absurd fallacy, when he was asked about mj causing people to become violent or act strange. However when faced with losing his job, one he had only held for a...

    Judgement

    The criminalization wasn’t racist, it’s widely known that Anslinger knew that his entire department was going to be eliminated at the end of prohibition. He had said years before he didn’t think it (mj) was of any danger or concern and it wasn’t, as long as his department had bootleggers to...

    Some Children born out of country to US troops and Americans no longer automatic US citizens

    I am about 99% certain that there’s at least 2 posters in this thread that haven’t bothered to read the actual policy or the clarification statement that was issued.

    Some Children born out of country to US troops and Americans no longer automatic US citizens

    If this administration, or any ftm, were modifying a rule/law/regulation/policy to increase its oversight your point would be valid, regardless of who it was. This is simply restating an existing rlrp and memorializing so there’s no confusion when it’s enforced. It’s no different than Gorsuch...

    Bye Bye Trade War? China Plans $1 Trillion Buying Spree to Reduce US Trade Deficit

    The euros appreciate our stance now, a couple of years or so back it was a different story. Decorum aside, Trump and his team have been effective, imo, precisely because they haven’t approached trade politically they’ve approached it for what it is, business and you always negotiate from your...

    Trump admin rescinds approval for immigrants in the US seeking medical treatment not available in their home country. They must leave by Sept 9

    This reminds me of Buffett saying he doesn’t oppose higher taxes, ok, then write a check to the gvt, nothing stopping you.

    Bye Bye Trade War? China Plans $1 Trillion Buying Spree to Reduce US Trade Deficit

    China's has a few strings pulling on it beyond the current trade distractions. The Chinese gvt is looking at issuing a China gvt backed crypto that will still be controlled by the state owned banks, so they want to replace their worthless fiat currency with a less than worthless crypto currency...

    Not sure if you saw but China currency hit a 10 yr low, just the threat of American co’s leaving is causing major upheaval.

    Some Children born out of country to US troops and Americans no longer automatic US citizens

    No it’s really not, I might disagree with a law I might consider the law or regulation as overreach but if they enforce a law on the books that’s what they’re supposed to do. To combat that we have to elect officials who will remove bad laws and gvt overreach from the books, iow, don’t like the...
