  1. Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump My warmest condolences to the family and many friends of Congressman Elijah Cummings. I got to see first hand the strength, passion and wisdom of this highly respected political leader. His work and voice on so many fronts will be very hard, if not impossible, to replace! 8:54 AM ยท Oct 17, 2019 Just horrible.
  2. I worked at an interesting conference the other day with some apparently big names in the economics and financial world in a panel discussion. The topic was on preparing for the coming recession. They all agreed that obviously yes, it will eventually happen but outside of some emerging markets, there wasn't a huge concern near term in the US, UK and Europe. Consumers are driving the US economy but concerns that slowing manufacturing will eventually affect that. Uncertainty with tariffs are making companies hoard cash but once that is resolved, and they agreed it would be eventually, one guy thought that M&A would be the next driver of the economy but might also be a signal of slowing after that. There were also concerns that new tools needed to be added to the toolbox, especially in Europe, to help once the inevitable comes. That the global economy isn't preparing as it should. Given the topic, I was expecting doom and gloom but was encouraged, at least in the short term, by the conversation.
  3. Challenge yourself and create new memories. I'm semi-retired and still don't have enough hours in the day to do all the things I'm trying to do. My wife and I have been together for 30 years, no kids (by choice!) so we lived through our 20's together. We rarely talk about the past because we always have things planned for the future. We're both somewhat introverted so group settings can be draining, especially when, like with so many old friends, get togethers devolve into talk about "glory days" It gets boring when it's the same stories over and over. But we both push ourselves, my wife with her gym/running friends and me in voiceovers. Both have a lot of younger people that push us to keep up and do better. Our usual 4 or 5 vacations a year has been replaced by a condo we just bought in Boise, that will be a second home for a year or two until we move there full time. Neither of us has lived anywhere other than Queens in our lives. That has opened up so many exciting opportunities. You avoid being a "glory days" guy by looking ahead. I know it's easy to say for me with no kids but find something that will make you look forward to the future for yourself.
  4. Didn't get to see it but am glad to read that Pete and especially Klobachar are getting good reviews. Yang as well.
  5. Most of what you said is not being disputed in the article. I'm in the camp that thinks most Presidents have done shady #### while in office, even similar to what Trump did in the phone call. The difference is that Trump got caught and exposed and should face whatever punishment is coming his way. But the reason he got caught is because of leaks and whistleblowers who, miraculously, didn't seem to appear as often under previous administrations. No doubt Trump has brought a lot of this on himself but it's been obvious that there are certain people who have had it out for him from Day 1. Those same people probably let a lot slide in years past.
  6. I cant see how anyone can defend Trump's decision here. This is worse than Obama pulling out of Iraq because anyone with half a brain could have predicted the immediate impact this decision would have. This wasn't an "endless war" situation. Our mere presence, even if just 50 troops, was preventing this from happening. Sick to my stomach over this.
  7. There was more than one lesson learned here. I only did a search because it was mentioned that the term was only used in Who's Hottest threads, which I thought was odd since most, if not all, have been purged. It wasn't for a "gotcha" Once found, I didn't think it was something that should be ignored given the heat taken by rock to begin with. You're free to judge whether the charges of hypocrisy are inane or not but the point wasn't missed.
  8. I voted Cruz in the primary. Unfortunately, Rubio wasn't still an option at the time.
  9. Mostly background while I'm working. I'm not sitting there watching it.
  10. I've already said I'm in favor of the impeachment inquiry but I'm not sure what that has to do with lying under oath.
