re: US to arm Kurds in syria, strongly against wishes of turkey - GeneralLee
Turkey can go f*** itself. They have been supporting ISIS for years as they view ISIS as a nice pawn to kill Kurds for Turkey. We should get all our nukes and armed forces out of Incirlik airbase in Turkey, send those armed forces to new bases in Kurdistan, and kick Turkey out of NATO!...

re: Don't forget to zinc ya pecan trees - GeneralLee
Foliar zinc sprays are a good way to get faster growth out of younger pecan trees. You spray zinc once every two weeks from budbreak to midsummer. Not needed so much for mature pecan trees. Link below is to a good handbook describing all the ins and outs... [link=(https://www.agrilifebookstore...

re: Investing In Tesla - GeneralLee
My main concern is that Musk will be so focused on saving the world (see new ventures with Neuralink, etc.) that Tesla ends up commanding a smaller and smaller % of his time in the future. I'm not sure if the vision is to have lots of separate companies (SpaceX, Tesla, Neuralink, etc.) or to eventu...

re: US Presidents in your lifetime - rank them from best to worst - GeneralLee
1. Reagan (America FTW) 2. Clinton (in large part due to prodding from Republican Congress) 3. HW Bush (maybe the last serious statesman we'll ever have as President) 4. W Bush (Iraq, ballooning national debt, economic crash, led to Obama, etc.) 5. Obama (by a long long shot) Too early on Tru...

re: White House to unveil new Obamacare replacement deal tomorrow - GeneralLee
[quote]Absolutely brilliant politics[/quote] I tend to agree. I would have each state vote on this during the 2018 midterms. Would be an added boost to kick out the Red State Dem senators that are left. Also, the structure of this bill gives an out for GOP senators that are hesistant to suppor...

Here's what GOP should do on Obamacare - GeneralLee
Screw reconciliation, draft a bill based on the Rand Paul/Mark Santorum plan. Put it up for a vote which will almost certainly fail in the Senate. Get these GOP cucks and Red State Dems on the record for continuing to defend this abomination. Put the bill up for a vote again and again each time t...

re: American Health Care Act (Obamacare Replacement) introduced - GeneralLee
[quote]Trump administration is inviting everyone's input while making this legislation. Compare that to Obama's administrations you have to pass it to see what's in it! [/quote] Eh... 48 hours for a 123 page bill with this one versus 24 hours for a 1000+ page bill for Obamacare. Not really that ...

re: Need financial advice - GeneralLee
So sorry to hear your diagnosis, your family is in our thoughts. One question I have for this scenario you detailed is would the bank let you refinance into a 30 year mortgage if neither you nor your wife worked anymore. I'm not sure if the disability payments would count from the bank's under...

re: Is leverage a must to your investing? - GeneralLee
Your example is too simplistic and inaccurate in large portions. Good luck achieving a 10% return in Lending Club. I did a trial portfolio in Lending Club and was targeting a 10% return but came up well short and am in the process of liquidating those loans. Their borrower underwriting process ha...

re: How the heck does GOP Obamacare plan not include interstate competition - GeneralLee
I read an article on zerohedge about it, and according to them it starts interstate competition and medical malpractice reform can't be passed under the reconciliation process, so those would have to be separate bills. [quote]A breakdown of core aspects removed from the existing law (courtesy o...

re: How the heck does GOP Obamacare plan not include interstate competition - GeneralLee
[quote]Because this is the start, it will change as the debate begins.[/quote] Why the hell should there even be a debate about having more competition? And I thought this is the one shot, they probably don't have time to draft a new bill and get a budget passed in time....

How the heck does GOP Obamacare plan not include interstate competition - GeneralLee
for the plan premiums? This is the biggest no brainer to bring healthcare costs down in the system, as right now there are many states with only one or two insurers. It would be better to leave Obamacare in place and let it die on its own course than pass this joke of a replacement plan. GOP will...

Obamacare fallback strategy... - GeneralLee
Let's say for some reason that a full scale repeal and replace of Obamacare can't be passed this year. Why couldn't they pass single, popular elements of the replacement plan as separate bills? I know this would open it up to needing 60 votes in the Senate, but do you really think 40 senators woul...
