re: Sonnie Johnson rightfully places the mantle of racism squarely on Dems... - Joshjrn
If Republicans were willing to embrace limited government and end the War on Drugs, they would have a chance at peeling away support in the black community. As long as Republicans aren't willing to do so, they won't. ...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Joshjrn
I'll be keeping my CSR. Not sure why anyone would drop it at the current benefits package, but to each his own. I guess if you can't make up the $300 travel voucher ....

re: President Snowflake - Joshjrn
[quote]Obama talking down to people gave us Trump, Trump's excessive insults will give us someone to the left.[/quote] If the pattern holds, "someone to the left" is an understatement. In my opinion, Bush governed further right than Clinton did left. Obama governed further left than Bush did ...

re: A $5,000 hamburger? - Joshjrn
Sounds amazing. It's also more appropriately in the neighborhood of being a $50 burger, which I don't find particularly objectionable. With that said, I hate bull shite pricing clickbate like this article. If I give you a free hotdog if you purchase a car, you're an idiot if you run a headline saying ...

re: BR restaurants with patios suggestions - Joshjrn
I'll add Bin 77 (probably my favorite patio dining in the city) to the already extensive list on this thread. ETA: I now see "Perkins Rowe restaurants" listed generally, but still, Bin is worth its own mention :lol:...

re: Best pizza place near heart of Times Square? - Joshjrn
[quote] I will be staying in the middle of Times Square for a couple of days next week and I am looking for the best, convenient pizzeria nearby. Also any suggestions for a good sit down Italian restaurant nearby would be helpful too.[/quote] There's nothing inherently wrong with [i]staying[/i] ...

re: President Snowflake - Joshjrn
[quote]And yet you claim to be a libertarian. LOL.[/quote] I'm a libertarian and believe Trump has been behaving like a petulant child. How are these two positions inherently incompatible? And for the record, I'd like to see Trump do well. The current political paradigm makes it much more lik...

re: Poll: Would you pay more for American made products if they are better? - Joshjrn
[quote]Lodge is a fine American brand[/quote] I was very disappointed when my cast iron set was delivered and I saw how rough the iron was. At some point, I'll probably sand it down myself and reseason it. Or just replace it. We'll see. ...

re: Poll: Would you pay more for American made products if they are better? - Joshjrn
[quote]It used to be that the "Made in USA" automatically meant that it was a superior product. Automobiles not withstanding. [/quote] At least that's what the marketing told you. In the same way that "made in Germany" or "produced in France" doesn't automatically make something superior, there ...

re: Poll: Would you pay more for American made products if they are better? - Joshjrn
Your question is unnecessarily compound and should be separated into: 1. Are you willing to pay a premium for a superior product? 2. Are you willing to pay a premium for a product made in America that is otherwise identical to an imported product? The questions really have nothing to do with ...

re: Financial Advisors? - Joshjrn
You would choke if you actually did the math and saw what something like Edward Jones costs you over your lifetime, once you take into consideration lost compounding. Unless you've got a crazy complex situation, just go self directed with Vanguard. ...
