re: Anybody Who *ACTUALLY* Believes That Kobe > Lebron... - buckeye_vol
[quote]One finals victory, which isnt won without Kyries game 6 heroics, has made Lebrons legacy. Its faulty because, in a sense, Kyrie carried him to the game 6 win. [/quote]What are you talking about? Lebron had 41 points, 8 rebounds, and 11 assists in games 6....

re: Scottie Pippen: LeBron James not what MJ or Kobe were as players - buckeye_vol
And I remember when he was basically saying LeBron was better than MJ after they beat the Bulls his first year in Miami. 3 championships and 8 straight finals appearances later and now he’s not even as good as the far more inferior Kobe. ...

re: John Bel Edwards gets an F for fiscal policy per Cato Institute - buckeye_vol
[quote]Considering that true leftist policy is the antithesis to "fiscal responsibility" I am not sure of the point you are trying to make.[/quote]That’s not true, since their fews are actually based on a historically classical liberal ideology. The progressive statists have distorted what libera...

re: John Bel Edwards gets an F for fiscal policy per Cato Institute - buckeye_vol
[quote]The Cato institute's "vision" for fiscal responsibility leans very heavy right. If a left leaning think tank did these grades, they would look very different. [/quote]Cato is a libertarian think tank. Their views across policy areas are consistent, yet depending on the policy, their views are...

re: Dividend Stocks - buckeye_vol
[quote]T and MO yields are ridiculous at this point.[/quote]Yields can be deceiving though since a major drop in stock price (like MO) often results in a major increase in the yield even if the dividend payout amount didn’t change. ...

re: There are some major issues lurking in the US financial markets - buckeye_vol
[quote]You might need to check your math. From the latest spreadsheet that I downloaded from the BEA at Commerce, I calculate that only 2.2% annualized real GDP growth for the 4Q is required to achieve a 3.0% figure for all of 2018, assuming no other revisions of course. [/quote]The math is correct....

re: There are some major issues lurking in the US financial markets - buckeye_vol
[quote]“Paul Krugman doesn’t see return to 3% growth” [/quote]Well unless Q4 GDP grew by 3.64% (annualized) over the third quarter, it won’t reach 2.95% to round up to 3.0% for the year. Although the difference between 2.90% and 2.95% significant isn’t enough to call it a good prediction for a no...

re: A Scientific dissent from Darwin - buckeye_vol
[quote]Macro is a term generally used by creationist loons. [/quote]I think it’s been co-opted and then misrepresented by them. [quote]There’s no scientific distinction.[/quote]And that’s my point. It was used to describe a practical and understandable difference in the scale of study of a theory. I...

re: A Scientific dissent from Darwin - buckeye_vol
[quote]I am amused however how by the amount of faith out into something that is demonstrably fallable.[/quote]Like pretty much any scientific theory, I’m not pretending that theory is anywhere near complete and perfect. I mean if it was then there would be no need to study it really. But that do...

re: A Scientific dissent from Darwin - buckeye_vol
[quote]There’s no such thing as “macro” evolution, loon.[/quote]Well that’s not really true, but the terms and their distinction seem to be misrepresented as if they are essentially different theories instead of the same theory with a difference of scale. In other words, I think the term “macro e...

re: The Stunning Statistical Fraud Behind The Global Warming Scare - buckeye_vol
[quote]You don't have to be commiting intentional fraud to be using poor statistical methodology.[/quote]I agree. And I think that’s one of the major reason why the predictions have had an upward bias. That being said, they seem to have improved, as they should. Regardless, I can now see that you...

re: A Scientific dissent from Darwin - buckeye_vol
[quote]You should have FAITH in scientists. [/quote]I have faith in science, its process, and the evidence it provides, which limits and corrects for the fallibility of scientists, who are humans after all. I don’t believe in evolution because scientists said it was so. They are necessary conduit...

re: The Stunning Statistical Fraud Behind The Global Warming Scare - buckeye_vol
[quote]I want to see all that data plotted. I'm inclined to think that if plotting it out in that way would strengthen the case against objections you would see that graph everywhere.[/quote]There are many reputable scientists who have made valid criticisms of the current theory. Yet, I can’t thi...
