  1. Take a break with Ladyva. Damm, she's good.
  2. C-Span recently had Greenspan discussing, along with his co-author, his new book "Capitalism in America: A History" Here's the video:
  3. Thanks Michael. Hope you are well. The Donald sure draws real, not paid for, crowds. Lets hope that translates into votes. -Joe
  4. I find lots to like about Ted. Especially since he did a nice job marketing Atlas Shrugged. -J
  5. Zack Snyder Announces an Adaptation of Ayn Rand’s ‘The Fountainhead’ Is His Next Movie
  6. LOL. I'm reminded what the little Russian lady wrote (don't remember where): "It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master"
  7. Thought I'd pass this along to those, who like me, are dealing with arthritis. Anything that can reduce the inflammation I'm all for.
  8. ISIS claiming Paddock was one their supporters:
  9. Is this Paddock (pink cap & t-shirt) at an anti-Trump rally? at 0:17 into the video
  10. Here's an update from Clark County Sheriff, Lombardo. He seems skeptical (go to 21:13 in the video) and now I do too, that the shooter was acting alone...based on the amount of rifles, ammo and other material found at the hotel and his home. It's not inconceivable others would be joining him (why so many rifles) in the room? Add to that how could he get all his supplies up to the room without help from others? ...inside/ outside help.
  11. lol Michael. I'd add Somalia to the group offering asylum. --J
  12. The "never let a crisis go to waste mentality", particularly when it is she that will benefit, rears its ugly head. -J
  13. Well, reality bites. More difficult now, with Trump to deal with... "running on empty"...who can we loot, if not the U.S.? -J
  14. I'm enjoying the footage, most of which I have never seen before. I guess most of it was obtained from Russian, Chinese & the Vietnam governments. I was stationed in Japan (1968-69), in the Army, as a offset press operator. I remember printing, for days on end, tens of thousands leaflets which were dropped by plane, with Thieu's face on it...along with his plea to the S. Vietnamese people for their support.
  15. Sen. Rand Paul said he won't be bribed or bullied into signing the repeal. A salute to him!
  16. As I recently told my Dr. @ the annual physical exam..."well here I am, older and uglier than I was a yr. ago. The doc laughed and said..."so's everyone else".
  17. Sell? based on what? Non taxable distributions (dividends), which I've received over the last 5 yrs or more are an attractive incentive to stay in the game.
  18. Here's a report from Energy Transfer Partners, a large player in the energy sector & a stock I own, on the effects of the hurricane on their operations.
  19. Indeed. I believe AR said or wrote...Those who fight for the future are living in it today.
  20. Try this:
