Re: Politics

I'm not saying that you have questions you aren't asking, I'm saying you just ignore the point and respond to something that's actually not the point instead. I mean above I tried to make the point that, even if he magically becomes a great president from here on out, Trump has already done genuine ...

Re: Politics

The founders were well aware of the dangers of partisanship (or "factionalism") but apparently failed to foresee a time when politicians in power would put their own interests ahead of the country's . You think this is something new? Can I ask you what the point is of excising an entire p...

Re: Politics

If there's one thing we've learned about bankers over the past decade it's that they're always looking ahead with the long game in mind. Yes, a lot of investors think in the short term and make knee-jerk reactions. But the Dow hit a record high after Trump became president. Maybe that was a positiv...

Re: Politics

Whatever other reservations people might have had about Hillary, nobody was worried about her starting World War III. But yes, through selective responses and then selective quoting, feel free to dodge the issue of what stock traders are "certain" about and what implications that has for ...

Re: Politics

That's quite a low bar to clear. Indeed. But look at the top two choices we had this past election.

Re: Politics

That's pretty simplistic but we'll skip that discussion and get to the important part, which is what "things" do you think they're "sure of"? That we're not in World War III yet. That's quite a low bar to clear. This is really a cowardly answer. You're either in favor of the con...

Re: Politics

By the way, to earthling's point, the Doomsday Clock is at two and a half minutes to midnight now, the closest it's been since the US and USSR conducted competing thermonuclear tests in 1953. It's the first time it's ever moved based on one man's statements.

But I'm still withholding judgment!

Re: Politics

Oh, so like the final 7 years and 10 months of his presidency? Yes. What investors hate is uncertainty. So the more sure they are of things, the more likely the stock market will go up. But the stability of the stock market isn't the only thing I use to judge how a president is doing. That's pretty...

More on uber and whether it's more efficient than other transport modes (spoiler alert: no) https://ftalphaville.ft.com/2016/12/01/2180647/the-taxi-unicorns-new-clothes/ As shown in Exhibit 2, for the year ending September 2015, Uber had GAAP losses of $2 billion on revenue of $1.4 billion, a negati...

Re: Politics

Actually I'm tempted to say that kind of stuff is much more rampant on the right, but that wouldn't be based on anything more than my own anecdotal experience, so I can't really make a strong argument there I would argue there's equal number of people in both groups, but the left claiming it's more...

Re: Politics

You seem to be treating this potential "outright era of hostility" as an opportunity to "make tough decisions," and if that's not your point then I'm not "missing it," you're not making it. My point is the "tough decisions" are fine enough if you're a white gu...

Maybe he's going too far, and I would argue he is, but sometimes we have to spill a little blood, even if metaphorically, to not get stuck in a rut and kill the country. We could end up a stronger country after going through some pain. We've failed to make tough decisions on race, religion and such...

Regardless of what he personally does -- although he's already doing things, like bringing white nationalist Steve Bannon into the fold -- his election has already driven a spike in hate crimes. Easy for white men to say everyone "will be fine," but lots of people are already not fine righ...

I'm not proposing anything specific, just pushing back on the shortsighted and irresponsible mindset of "I won't worry about it until it happens." But there are plenty of avenues, including, yes, protests (which is what we were talking about in the first place), but also advocacy and activ...

Re: Politics

I literally gave you a list of links to articles about things that are already happening. And I gave a link to a video that pretty much sums up where I'm coming from. Does your video make it so that the things described in my links actually never happened after all? Cuz otherwise you can post as ma...
