re: Historically low 37% Gallup approval rating for trump - Volvagia
[quote]I think the majority of Americans not hypnotized by Fox News or breitbert see trump for what he is. A cry baby bitch con man. [/quote] And yet, you can find many polls, even on liberal sources which strongly affirms a widely held belief that he is being unfairly treated by the media....

re: Mortgage interest deduction what am I missing - Volvagia
Actually, you probably come out ahead really. With a standard deduction taking a sizable portion of the hit while overloading the following year, you'll probably come out ahead. Example: Interest + Tax= 7000 means ~250 on a single tax return. Interest + 2 year tax = 9000 means ~750 on si...

re: Florida gov reassigns case after DA refuses death penalty - Volvagia
[quote]Say another case comes along for a political crony and the governor thinks the prosecutor is getting too close to a conviction. He can reassign the SA at a moment's notice, to repay a political debt, or to shield shady activity. [/quote] Or he can nip it in the bud and issue a pardon.........

re: Star Wars vs. Star Trek in a battle for all the marbles...who wins? - Volvagia
Star Wars the ships can go from one side of the galaxy to the other in days/weeks. Voyager originally needed more than 70 years in warp to do the same thing. Also, as far as I know, only Star Wars had any kind of conflict outside the galaxy. ...

re: Star Wars vs. Star Trek in a battle for all the marbles...who wins? - Volvagia
Case in point: The Enterprise is often times depicted as the flagship of the Federation. In multiple places the most sophisticated craft they have in the fleet, which consists of around 10k ships at its peak according to the interwebs. Then you have the mass produced Star Wars equivalent...

re: Star Wars vs. Star Trek in a battle for all the marbles...who wins? - Volvagia
