Starting what could be described as 2 racially provocative threads on the Poliboard within the last half hour. Potential for lots of bannings in those 2 threads. I don't know what his/her agenda is, but if early posts are indicative, it isn't good. Can't really tell if trolling (modest proposal...

| Political Talk|| Spinoff: How can we simplify the tax code? - Ace Midnight on 11/12/15 at 11:26 am|
Inspired by Powerman's "fauxvertime" tax credit thread. Obviously the progressives want the home mortgage interest deduction gone. It is wildly popular, but a key point of class warfare they want to pursue. So, I'm fine with it being gone - IF we knock a lot more out of the code: EITC? Is...View Topic - Replies (14)

Just a suggestion - it may cut down on duplicative threads being started, which is now generating some RAs (not by me, FTR). It is a Louisiana story that has gone national. Maybe for a day or two then re-evaluate?...

We lost Pops a couple of years ago. Today is his birthday. Because of the timing of this, during his lifetime, the LSU-Bama game was held, ON his birthday no fewer than 7 times, or approximately 10% of all of his birthdays. And aside from that, the game with within 5 or 6 days, either way, of his...View Topic - Replies (5)

Looking for recommendations - budget is $500 - it will go with a new Skylake build next month. It will be paired with either top tier Nvidia or AMD card (or 1 behind). I would like to go display port, but that's not required. I have a brand bias towards ASUS, generally, but have never used one ...View Topic - Replies (1)

I know they're polarizing on this board (and other places). Few doubt their raw talent and productivity, but combine that productivity with the work ethic in the studio and on the road, an intact, working lineup that is unchanged for 40+ years, and their philanthropic efforts. Is Rush the hardes...

And, is USB 3.1 a must have for a general purpose desktop? I pretty much keep them in service 5 years or so. Any ot...View Topic - Replies (4)

Millenials will be coming of age (barely) in 2016, but if we get a 2-term boomer or the first Gen-X President in 2016, the younger remain...
