    "You may be correct on the value today, but you may not be correct in the future."

    -That statement may be correct today, but it may not be correct in the future.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: European Stocks Rise As Draghi Readies QE [View article]
    I'm with gg on this one. The community I live in has people that are still fluent in Czech, and as a matter of fact, all Czech church services stopped in the 70's. Despite the language gap, all of these people are extremely proud to be Americans, with many, many veterans of WW1 to Vietnam. The lack of an official language is something I consider part of America's appeal.

    The cluster of cultures that make up our own is the "American Experience" that everyone craves. We are tolerent of you celebrating Cinco de Mayo even though it has nothing to do with America because we know that almost all of the traditions we respect came from outside of America's borders. For example, St Patricks day.

    "Let us also not forget that half of the US used to be part of Mexico, is it right to deprive the people we conquered of their language rights?"

    That seems a bit extreme to me. There's no such thing as "language rights" because an official language doesn't make speaking another illegal, just not binding in contracts and such. "Conquered" is another extreme word because we did not instigate the Mexican American war and very mercifully bought the west from them when we absolutely could have said "move over".

    "[The right wing] chose to develop a man crush on Putin for his statesmanship and leadership, rather than show any support for our own President. "

    berb let me assure you gggi is alone is his support for Putin. The unbelievably vast majority of conservatives cannot stand Putin and his dictator tendencies.

    A lot of Presidents have been doing that for a while unfortunately.

    "The reason Obama and his supporters are screaming mad about this suit is that they know this can stop his Constitutional violations even if the Democrats remain in control of the Senate."

    If the constitution didn't stop him, why would he respect a judge?

    I was looking for copper pennies last night (as I always do) and in on of the rolls I found a wheat penny from 1912. Then a thought hit me.

    When that penny was made:
    -The Titanic sank
    -The income tax didn't exist
    -William Taft was President
    -"Commoners" weren't allowed on golf courses
    -Women wore corsets
    -Women could not vote
    -Ford Model T's were cool
    -Anthony Fokker established the presessesor to Fokker Aircraft company
    -King George V ruled England
    -My great grandmother was 9

    After all it's adventures and all the transactions over the last 102 years it finally ended up in my hand. I do love history.

    How about instead of keeping foreigners out we actually try to make college affordable. Right now it's a $40,000 to $80,000 commitment one has to make when they are the least mature.

    If the Asians and Europeans are kicking our butt then I say good for them, but instead of complaining lets compete.

    "A quick search on "Texas poll tax" provides hundreds of stories."

    ...But zero of them involve poll taxes. They're about the voter ID cases. You do know what a poll tax is don't you?

    ""Obesity is a national epidemic that affects millions of Americans," says FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg. "

    When I read this stuff I laugh. It's like starting a charity that installs air conditioning in poor peoples cars. Obesity is a FANTASTIC problem to have, and is a byproduct of a country's wealth and excess.

    That said this stuff doesn't work. People who would read the calorie counts are people that care about their health, and people that care about their health don't eat that horrible (delicious) stuff. Health and obesity are lifestyles, one cares about what they eat, the other doesn't.

    Something else to consider is how deep today's television shows are. Burn Notice, The Walking Dead, The Office, and Breaking Bad are all shows that if you missed last week, seeing the next episode is going to ruin it. A lot of the old shows like Twilight Zone, and The Andy Griffith show could be picked up on a whim and enjoyed. The deep stories being told today require a service like netflix where the episodes can be watched in order.

    Ms. Jackson Lee continues to embarrass me. She and Pelosi both claimed they never sought impeachment on Bush.

    Even if Congress is dragging its feet it doesn't give him (or any President) power to legislate, and it is wrong for him to do so. If a jury is hung the judge cannot say, "If the jury won't act I will".

    "property ownership, "non-ignorant?", various other "skin in the game.""

    I can assure you that the majority of conservatives do not believe that, we believe that the right to vote, aside from the usual "citizen of good standing and sound mind", is unalienable and essential to liberty. Though the ones that do believe in the other qualifications tend to be very loud. IDs are meant to restrict non-citizens from voting.

    If the Republicans are elected they will not repeal obamacare, not seal the border, not balance the budget, not control spending, not cut out waste, not ease the stress on business, and not get to the bottom of the many scandals still unsolved. But you better believe they will get "comprehensive immigration reform" done about 15 times.
