Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

So, imagine having a tight budget for both time and money. Then the grand fucker comes to give a speech, and your choice is to come and listen or to forfeit your hard earned time or money. Hardly fair! https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/17/politics/workers-trump-speech-attend-pto-no-pay/index.html

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Nancy has been saying that for at least a couple of months, and definitely means it. Meanwhile, if there were any doubt that Mitch Fucking McConnell was as corrupt as Trump, that has been removed. And as slimy, which is an accomplishment! Basically, another Putin stooge with a nod to the evangelical...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

So Trump is pissing all over the prime minister of Sweden because a friend of the Kardashians is being prosecuted for a violent attack that he carried out in Stockholm a couple of weeks ago. Because Trump had seen a video on the internet (just slightly edited) demonstrating the innocence of said wr...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Trump is very comfortable working with people like Putin, Kim and Duterte. Somebody with slightly democratic leanings, I don't think so. There is certainly no evidence to date for such a thing.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

In principle, I'd be pretty comfortable with $1 million, but there is an obvious verification problem based on the fact that Trump's minions will be in charge of the investigation. As a Bayesian prior, I'd put a far higher probability of the death being caused by somebody from the Trump camp than f...

I like his late 70's stuff. Paradise by the Dashboard Light is a definite classic.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Once in a while I will grudgingly admit to miss ppauper. Had he still been among the living, he would have been all over the conspiracy theory that Bill and Hilary Clinton killed Jeffrey Epstein, probably even before Trump promoted it.

Re: FX Hedged UST

Part of what you pay for when you have a Bloomberg terminal is a pretty high-touch customer support model. Hitting the green Help button on your keyboard twice in a row will start a chat session with support. If your keyboard doesn't have a green Help button it is a good chance you don't have a Bloo...

Re: Festivals and events this summer

Wow! Even more creative. Using two separate identities to advertise the bus service. But why?

Re: Are you ready for NO BREXIT?

Wait - was that post really just an advertisement for a Danish bus rental company? I guess they'll be flooded with orders now!

Re: Brexit - the last 50 days

On the ethics of a no-deal Brexit: https://www-rte-ie.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.rte.ie/amp/1067523/ I wouldn’t take the opinion of one academic philosopher too seriously, and I really don’t think he argued his case terribly well. While there ought to be some ethical (or moral) foundations for poli...
