Side note, anyone big on financial markets and macro US enomics? Would like to have a spit ball session on an outlook of the next 6-36 months. Would prefer to keep politics out of it as what is aboit to occur is independent of who is president as it is a mess in the making for several years now. Would be happy to take offline or move into the forums.
Bats, I doubt anything has really changed. Anyone who tells you they know what is going to happen in the next three years is either lying to themselves or to you. A widely diverse portfolio with investments mostly in indexed funds has, is, and will continue to be the way to go.

If you are really stressed about it because you want to retire in three years or some other large financial change in your life, you should talk to a certified financial planner. You should able to get consulting from one for either a flat fee, or possibly even for free for the initial consultation.

Hmmm, I partially cleared my cookies to fix an issue at another web-site and now I am seeing odd behavior on the News Forum index. Topics I have looked at, when they receive new posts, are not getting the red asterisk... anyone seen this before and have a fix?

I try hard not to be a conspiracy nut, but I have to admit I have a hard time believing Oswald assassinated JFK on his own. I don't worry about it much though -- I figure we'll never know for sure one way or the other unless someone builds a time machine or a "Wormcam" like the one in The Light of Other Days.

Interesting - reminds me of the plot of Deju Vu, which was out 6 years later...
Yeah, it is great idea to write a book around. Just think about how it might modify your actions if you knew anyone who wanted to could observe you. Or how it would modify things like what politicians or corporations do. When you can actually witness the back room deals... or hear people planning crimes. It would cause major upheaval... another which would really change the world is The Truth Machine. Such a device would turn the world upside down overnight...

If you want to defend Trump in general, I have no beef with that. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and only time will tell who is right about what a Trump presidency will mean in the long haul. But trying to defend Trump University simply shows you haven't spent any time looking at what was going on there. Pick better battles to fight...

You need 3/4 ratification to remove the electoral college and there are far too many small states over-represented by the current system to ever change it that way. Short of a constitutional convention (which is just... terrifying) I don't really see it ever going away.
Actually there is another way, and people are working on it. Since each state controls how their electoral votes are cast. ie.. a couple do it proportionally, a couple of others by the voting districts/regions, currently though the vast majority cast all the votes for the candidate receiving the most votes in their state. The idea is for states to pass laws saying the all their electoral college votes will be cast for the candidate receiving the most votes, nationwide. If the electoral votes in states passing laws like this exceed 270, you will have effectively made the EC null and void and presidential election will be based on the national vote total.

I've been following the progress on this thing for a few years now, and it just keeps being amazing.

I sure hope the test in space in a few months will bear out.
Hmmm, interesting. Count me among those who "missed the hype", guess I'll go see what I can find out about this thing because that article definitely tweaked my interest...

Wow, yeah -- the kid on the "Free Skates" is quite impressive. In my youth I think I could have propelled myself on those things, having been a big roller skater, but nothing more than that.

Six inches or longer? *shudders* I do tend leave small spiders alone unless they are building webs in inconvenient locations. But most everything else I get rid of with extreme prejudice.

While his fumblings are amusing, his selections are not. Jeff Sessions as AG? What a freaking joke. At the time of his nomination, he was only one of two people rejected by the Senate for a judgeship in 50 years -- rejected by a GOP controlled committee no less... *sigh*

I probably need to start getting flu shots again. I've only ever gotten them when I was in the military. I justify this to myself based on, as far as I know, I've only gotten the flu once. That, or my immune system is good enough that it never feels worse than a minor cold. But as I am getting older now... I should probably should bend to better practices...

Is this military mandatory vaccinations?

It was when I was in, probably still is.
