re: are cd's a good idea? - Joshjrn
In light of the fact that the national average rate on a 36 month CD is less than half a percent and Ally is offering 1% for a normal savings account, I have no idea why anyone would ever consider it. ...

[quote]Now he is an absolutist? How interesting. [/quote] You can spare me your Trumpkin aspersions :lol: There's nothing inherently wrong with being an "absolutist" on an issue. I'm an absolutist on a whole host of issues. Rubio is an absolutist on abortion. I feel like he's said that...

[quote]And Rubio has supported legislation aimed at restricting abortion, but with exceptions for life of the mother, rape, incest etc. I know less about Pence, but do know he voted for a partial-birth ban that included an exception for when the life of the mother was threatened. Can you cit...

re: Whatever happens this election, the GOP is done as a single party. - Joshjrn
[quote]I used the numbers in your own post. 38% think abortion should be legal only in a few circumstances, and 16% think it should be completely illegal. Abortion is currently legal in far more than "a few circumstances". So it doesn't matter whether people know what the law is or not. What they th...

[quote]A clear majority, 54%, favors greater restriction of abortion than is currently the case. And that majority position status is consistent year to year. This issue isn't hurting the GOP.[/quote] Citation? But as before, your numbers are only as good as the knowledge of the people answer...

[quote]Mine came from Gallup.[/quote] Appreciated. Instead of hunting down your source, I pointed out that asking people whether they are "pro-life or pro-choice" is useless. It's like asking people whether they are "liberal or conservative". A few people can tell you, and the vast majority have ...

I would ask you for a link, but polls that reference amorphous terms without defining them are useless. This is what the numbers look like when you actually ask people what they think: [img]http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r286/joshjrn/CNN%20Abortion%20March%202016_zpss7iddxdl.png[/img] Now...

I've spent a fair amount of time dealing with Hyatt on redemptions, so I wanted to throw this out: For some reason, some properties have unspoken soft restrictions on award availability online. For example, I recently wanted to book a four night stay in November at the Park Hyatt in NYC. No avail...
