  1. The snake handlers are getting bitten. --Brant
  2. Even a good doctor can be wrong. --Brant very wrong
  3. He can be impeached and convicted for treason without being criminally charged for same. It's just removal from office. WWII was the last declared war. War de facto is not war de jure. --Brant
  4. Vaccines--but they are not actual vaccines--seem to be making everything worse qua Covid. Also, some young people are being killed through heart inflammation. _-Brant
  5. All true and silly. However, the driver shouldn't have been listening to anything except at passenger request. A small example of the world gone mad. If a broad and deep part of society is denied free speech thanks to corporate fascism the guns will start coming out. --Brant there's no justification in libertarian theory I'm aware of for the existence of public corporations so their defense of censorship qua property rights is spurious
  6. Federal fiscal flows into the economy are extremely strong over month to month a year ago so current stock prices will be maintained or increased all else being equal. The caveat is failure to increase the debt ceiling in October. Investor sentiment is high, but while more investors aren't appreciably coming in those who are in will have more money to put in. When the market does suffer a serious correction the bull market will be gone for years. --Brant
  7. Rand made a decent, accurate statement. It stands alone. It's not refutable except by analysis of such, not by argumentum ad h. --Brant
  8. She took SS, so I understand, on the rationale that she was getting her money back. But that money had been spent by the government as soon as it came in. Arguments go both ways. Medicare's another matter entirely. You take it or you're playing with dynamite. I'm not going into this here but regardless,if you go to the hospital of Medicare age you'll find you're already covered by Medicare A (hospitalization) unless you've managed to get some special private insurance or are so wealthy you pay out of pocket. In regard to the last the hospital will throw everything they can on you at grossly inflated prices. When the insurance companies get these hopped up bills they choke them down. --Brant
  9. Impressive and timely said 49 years ago. --Brant
  10. Time to revert to climate change. --Brant the horses won't pull
  11. But Trump supporters are "enemies of the state." At least some of them. Depends on which state of being we are talking about. After all, Trump is a statist. --Brant
  12. He read the poem at the burial. If there was a subsequent reading I don't know know of it. "If" --Brant I was there
  13. The Biden Boys throw Covid this and Covid that around like a football with all passes definitionally completed to the desired receiver. --Brant you can't argue with the science
