    I could get used to seeing that!

    All fair points, but would you rather be up 10 or down 10?

    I can't imagine a realistic better start for this team. Maybe it's low expectations, but wow!
  4. The randomness in hockey is hard to overstate. The puck bouncing over a stick or settling perfectly can be the difference in a game, in a series. Skill and gameplan matter, but they don't determine outcomes. How else do you explain a blowout each, while the rest of the games were hard fought and close (empty netters aside). Last year, everything broke right and we won it all. I just hope it happens again in my lifetime.
  5. I wonder if intentionally walking him every at bat, like the Cubs did, would mess with his mind again. I'd rather that than him getting any kind of hit today.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    You made a specific claim, that over half of the country support Trump. That claim is wrong. If it didn't matter, why did you make it? And why can't you admit you were wrong, rather than retreating to "It doesn't matter, the point still holds". Facts do matter. If someone said Trump had a 10 percent approval rating, I'd correct them as well, but no one other than you is presenting false information right now in this thread. Get your facts straight before you make a claim.

    What all trades? Edit: Seriously though, this administration is a nightmare.
  9. It seems obvious that there will be an attempt made by the Russians to snuff her out. It would be a feather in the cap for them, and what would be the repercussion? I hope whoever is in charge of keeping her safe is smart and vigilant.

    Let's talk about investing! Stock market, ETF, etc.

    I thought about starting a new thread, but this one is still active, so... What a wild year. I know the long term strategy for success is to buy low overhead index funds and leave the money in, but it certainly seems like the market is primed for a big fall. Though it has bounced back several times already when it seemed about to crumble. Down 800 today. If only McD5 was here with his charts to tell us for sure what is about to happen. So we'd know to do the opposite.

    There aren't mail in lottery ticket results. If the voting system was entirely electronic, you'd get results as fast as the lottery.

    Obama definitely could and should have been stronger about several things. Syria, realizing that the R's were at war with him, stuff like that. But he didn't make a show of strength to mask weakness, which is what Trump does. It's all bravado "I'd run into the school without a gun" "Rough him up" "Guys that bodyslam people are my kinda guys". He talks big and tough, but we all know he isn't. It's the obvious hypocrisy that bothers me. If you have an example of Obama being a hypocrite and feel compelled to share it, go ahead. But it doesn't in any way change what Trump is, and seems like you're looking to deflect from that by going this route.
