Some nitwit on Fox News is advocating making China pay the US for damages. Great, China already holds a large share of the US debt and we are going to be looking for a whole lot more money. Yeah, let’s piss China off. Brilliant!

The world has 2,134 billionaires with a combined wealth of $1.4 trillion. Time for these whales to help out, for a change. If they don’t, the party ends. The goose quits laying the golden eggs for these money mongers.

I have been told it is not polite to discuss politics or religion.
I got my first ham radio license at 10 years old. My dad told me then it was OK to talk on the radio about anything but politics or religion. That was over 50 years ago, the rules still stand.

I'm very thankful that I'm NOT aboard the "U.S.S. Stock Market". I dipped my toe in the stock market in the mid-90s, it coincidentally took a 5% dip the following month, so I pulled out and invested in a portfolio of classic motorcycles, parts, and equipment.

I was taught to diversify very carefully, and with tremendous blessings from God (had to be Him, there's no way it was me), we should be insulated COMPLETELY from the stock market and only indirectly affected by the U.S. economy in general. I can simply halt sales of my bike collection if the market on them drops, and we'll still have a reasonable "hands-off" income stream that is based on necessities which have a very limited "economic climate" dependence.

All those nebulous ones and zeros turn me RIGHT OFF. There is no actual "product" behind the vast percentage of it. NO THANK YOU. Billions lost in minutes, when no tangible goods ever changed hands, nor was anything tangible destroyed by flood or fire. Simply the IDEA that something MIGHT happen, causing that level of devastation, is INSANE (textbook definition, really)

Senator Rand Paul, Republican, is holding up a $850 billion stimulus bill. Says he wants to vote on ending the Afghan war.

We can beat this thing and lessen the consequences, but not with little bitches like Rand Paul
