I'm not trolling...I really do have the following opinions.
1. People who believe in organized religion should not be allowed to vote, let alone run for office. They are just not rational enough to lead society.
2. There should be no border patrol. Let them all in. The more the merrier. I l...

Suppose you are a juror at the trial of Jodi Arias. Suppose her lawyer came to you with a secret deal--she offers sex in exchange for a vote to acquit. You have to stick by the deal or an automatic mafia hit will take you out, if you double cross her.
I would vote--Not Guilty.

Last week I listed my favorite beers. The list got totally panned, but nobody mentioned what brand of beer they like.
The only beers I don't like are Colt 45 and all light beers. Colt 45 tastes terrible and is not really beer...it's called "malt liquor."
Light beers don't taste bad...they ju...

Read this in a business column this morning.
In 1981 gold was $613 an oz. Adjusted for inflation that would be worth $1727 today.
The current price of gold is ~$1552 an oz. So if you bought gold in 1981 it would be worth much less today.
Plus it pays no dividends. A gold buyer in 1981 wo...
