  1. Government shut down coming?

    Or Trump doesn’t really care about a wall, he just wants it as a talking point.
  2. Government shut down coming?

    Schumer said he offered Trump to authorize funding for the wall in exchange for CHIP and DACA and Trump turned him down.
  3. Vrabel named Titans HC

    Except that Ohio wasn’t even a state yet when DLB went to school there...
  4. Vrabel named Titans HC

    Haley was fired before we interviewed Vrabel
  5. Vrabel named Titans HC

    Chris Palmer as OC. Chuck Cecil as DC.
  6. Vrabel named Titans HC

    I don’t really see any problems with the Vrabel hire. They interviewed 3 good candidates and picked one. And he seems qualified, even though he hasn’t been a DC for long. Hiring any new HC is a risk. Vrabel is no different. But there wasn’t a list of sure thing candidates out there to choose from. Why not Vrabel?
  7. Government shut down coming?

    It’s too bad Republicans have never controlled all branches of the government since then so they could pass immigration reform. Like now. Or under Bush...
  8. Is Trump having an affair in the White House?

    Well the media hasn’t really picked up the story as reportable so I feel like it’s an argument in their favor that they aren’t just going with any anti-Trump story they can find. There’s no evidence out there, so it isn’t going to get coverage. And clearly the Trump Suckers aren’t going to turn on him just because he's a simpleton or because he says something racist or he gets us into a shooting war. They like that shit. He pretty much would need to do something that embarrasses them.
  9. https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/01/author-of-fire-and-fury-michael-wolff-suggests-trump-is-having-an-extramarital-affair-now.html I don’t see any evidence of this yet, but Wolff suggested last night that he is. They will need more than speculation on this one to make that claim. That said, I’m thinking if it’s true then her secret service code name is Cheeseburger. It would explain a lot about what they say about his nighttime routine...
  10. Hacking of missile alarm systems

    Yes, I hear there are a lot of those on PornHub...
  11. Cryptocurrency

    Not quite the same as a cryptocurrency. Yes, valuation is in some ways arbitrary even for stocks because if analysts decide one day that XYZ is overpriced the stock plummets, but that’s still different. Having a legal ownership stake in a real, profitable company means that there is a valuation based on some measurable financial results. Now, there are plenty of penny stocks you can invest in that are equally as speculative as bitcoin. I lost plenty betting on a battery company based on possible future profits. But even then it’s based on having a real product and the possibility that it would generate massive sales growth.
  12. Government shut down coming?

    Well, the shutdown is official. Hopefully they will make it a short one and work out a deal.
  13. Hacking of missile alarm systems

    Errr... ummm... research into this whole Stormy Daniels affair story. Yeah, that’s the ticket... Or it was posted on Reddit that day and it was funny.
  14. Cryptocurrency

    Investing in corporate equity isn’t “tangible” in the physical sense, but if I invest in IBM it has a perceived value based on income, revenue, dividends, new products, and all sorts of other things that rationally affect the value of the thing I own. Owning bitcoin is like owning a currency, except the currency is not backed by anything and you can’t necessarily liquidate it conveniently. There is zero intrinsic value. It produces nothing by its existence and can’t be used for anything practically. Why does it go up and down? What mechanism decides what it’s worth? Basically its a purely speculative investment that other people will want to invest in it. But other than it being an investment, why would anyone buy a bitcoin?
