    Ummm, 2nd highest military spending in the world. They might be first but it's cheaper to steal military technology than buy it or develop it yourself.

    China is growing fast because they had very little to start with and are basically in the middle of their industrial revolution. When they are more developed, when regulations, working conditions, and wages catch up to the rest of the civilized world...when they stop the gov't sponsored stealing intellectual property their growth will slow. It's BEYOND STUPID to think China is nirvana and the US is a dumpster fire. For example: https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-34592336

    The world is a scary place, man. Shit like that has happened under every president.

    Kinda surprised CNN even ran this article https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/19/opinions/mueller-report-obama-jennings/index.html

    Washington DC is a dirty place where money & power is routinely wielded to influence, control, and shape the outcomes of all things political. If the amount of resources spent to investigate this whole shit show, were spent to investigate any other US President they would find plenty of unflattering, possibly-criminal things. When you pull back those political covers you're going to find plenty of shit that was never meant to see the light of day. I don't defend any of that, but I am aware enough to realize that's what happens. The fact that there is no "smoking gun" is enough for me in this situation. I never cared for Trump long before he ever considered politics. He is not someone that I would enjoy spending time with. He is not a role model. His personality is not "Presidential." He's arrogant and oddly consumed with his image, etc. I do agree with some, but not all of his policies, however. He's right on tariffs and trade agreements. He's right that other countries need to step up and pay their fair share (NATO for example), and stop treating the US like it's an ATM. He's right about illegal immigration in the respect that it is a huge humanitarian crisis and getting worse. Our immigration laws are a joke, something both Reps and Dems have said for years. I don't think a wall is the best option...the best option is for Congress to pass stronger, sensible immigration laws and ACTUALLY enforce them, but we all know that isn't going to happen. So, If I'm forced to choose between a wall or nothing...I'll take the wall please. In 2020, I'd be happy to vote for a candidate that's better then Trump. But I haven't seen one yet. The Dems seem to want to continue parade out race-baiting-talking-heads, with no real platform besides "we don't like Trump." I'm going to need more than that.

    I tend to agree with this. I'm a right leaning moderate that doesn't vote with any party as a rule. This investigation was a witch hunt, meaning that many would only be satisfied if the result was Trump being removed from office. Check the top 10 headlines on CNN if you disagree.

    I have a 1911 Gold Sovereign coin worth about $500.

    Let's say you're a decent human being and you genuinely have our country's best interest in mind...then you find out that a US President DIDN'T collude with a foreign government. Wouldn't relief be a more appropriate response than utter disappointment? Looking at you CNN. At least try to pretend that you haven't been doing anything you can to try to take down a sitting US President.

    I don't see it hitting $40 again unless there is a major financial disaster. But, I do see it increasing again during the next bear market. It's right around 15 right now.

  14. What weekend do you have in mind? Since people are traveling on bikes, would it make sense for everyone to kick in $$ toward a food fund rather than bring food?
