| Tech Board|| HDMI splitter - GeneralLee on 9/2/14 at 10:15 am|
There was a recent lightning storm that fried one of the two HDMI ports on my TV. I need to find an HDMI splitter that would allow me to toggle between two inputs (DVD player and satellite TV) on the one functional HDMI port left for view on one output (1080p TV). I went to Best Buy and bought a s...
| Political Talk|| Shouldn't FBI be focused on ISIS not Michael Brown? - GeneralLee on 8/20/14 at 8:04 am|
Holder and Obama are going to look really misguided if ISIS strikes America in a domestic attack while they are wasting their attention and manpower on racebaiting in Missouri instead of focusing on potential sleeper cells that ISIS might have here....
| Political Talk|| Obama policy in Libya vs. Iraq - GeneralLee on 8/8/14 at 8:47 am|
If I remember correctly, Obama ordered widespread airstrikes in Libya to stop the [b]possibility[/b] of genocide taking place in cities like Benghazi if Gaddafi's forces were to retake them. Yet, in Iraq, with clear actual evidence of genocides taking place, we are only airlifting water and food to...

I have a Roth IRA and then a taxable 401K. From a tax strategy perspective, would I be better off allocating assets with probable higher capital gains (i.e. small cap stocks) in my Roth IRA with tax-free distributions while allocating assets with lower probable capital gains (i.e. large cap stocks)...

| Political Talk|| Most likely path to repeal Obamacare? - GeneralLee on 11/14/13 at 8:19 am|
What do y'all think is the more likely option at this point.... a 2/3rd's majority in both houses of Congress to overturn Obama's veto, or a constitutional convention? I'd say today that the convention route would have a higher chance of success, although it would take longer to accomplish. There a...

| Political Talk|| Well my girlfriend is now in the 29 hour Obamacare victim pool - GeneralLee on 5/28/13 at 11:25 am|
She's an educational assistant for a public preschool and they are cutting all of them back to 29 hours per week. In addition to hurting the assistants, it will also harm the children's education as the turnover rate is going to be much higher and they won't be able to have the same assistant consi...
| Political Talk|| Obamacare question - GeneralLee on 11/10/12 at 9:40 am|
So the way I understand obamacare is that if you elect to not get health insurance you pay a tax. So are poor people able to get insurance through Medicaid which would exempt them from that tax? While middle class people would pay the tax if they didn't have insurance and made too much money to be o...

Playing around on 270towin.com and looking at the polls, it seems like a combination of IA and WI is Romney's best option if OH does not go his way. What do y'all think is his best backup state combo without ohio?...

How on earth can the media blow up the valerie plame "scandal" for months yet the Benghazi attack doesn't even make the front page? It a shame, for all Americans liberal and conservative, that there is no longer a non par...
| Political Talk|| Excellent article on 2012 election polling/outcomes - GeneralLee on 10/25/12 at 8:22 am|
This coming from a Democratic consultant. I really don't see how Ohio can go for Obama in 2012 when it was only 51/48 in 2008 in a wave election that was a perfect setup for him. The media will be shocked in just a few weeks.
