Re: Fiscal 2020 First Quarter Budget Deficit Up 25%

All we have to do is buy our own bonds. Pluses and minuses don't matter anymore.

Re: Will the Astros be forced into bankruptcy due to sign stealing?

Manfred choked on the punishment. The lawsuits honestly won't go anywhere. The MLB had one shot at showing they had the cajones to punish cheaters, but they booted it and now the Astros are barely sorry they got caught. Maybe they won't, but maybe they will.

Re: Income Inequality

I was listening to NPR dribble for 15 minutes today. It was rather sad. They talked about Andrew Yang as the future of the Democrat party. His message on how bad income inequality, etc. Yet he was somehow smart to make money. It's kind of tough to have income if you don't plan, adapt, have flexibili...

Re: WSJ: Credit card debt soars to record

Sometimes I wonder if some of the credit card increase is kinda outright crime....people getting a credit card with no real intent to pay. What do I know. Also, I have heard some people may start a business with a credit card.

Will the Astros be forced into bankruptcy due to sign stealing?

Frankly, I think the owner will probably have to sell the team. The lawsuits are beginning.

What say you?

Maybe Bloomberg shouldn't talk about crime statistics as it relates to race?

Re: Glad I live in middle road USA. NUTS on each coast

You might want to buy your sweetie of half a century a nose plug for an anniversary present. ;) Congrats on your upcoming 50th. It's a notable milestone that my wife and I passed 5 years ago. True disclosure...I didn't mean to mislead, but it's going to be over a decade away, but you have to plan a...

It's America, folks. Don't be surprised that money may be able to buy anything -- even a national election.
I really know nothing about Bloomberg, but kinda reminds me of an accountant...with the same charisma. :) I just want to be able to buy a 20 oz soda when I want it!
