re: $250 a month for every kid under 18 - permanently - Ace Midnight
[quote]The benefit could prove costly, increasing the federal deficit by as much as $120 billion for one year[/quote] Would you believe closer to $180b to $200b? I mean, 20% of 330 million is 66 million. 66 million*$250 is shockingly close to $17m a month. My wild arse guess is better than ...

re: I disagree with Dan Bonginos about 3rd parties. He is massively opposed. - Ace Midnight
This is all academic and largely moot at this point. The Dems cracked the code. They don't even have to mobilize their own base or voters ever again. They manufacture push polls during the campaign and just run their vote farms in key cities to make up whatever the deficit is, over however many...

re: When did people stop dressing nice as a rule and more as an occasion - Ace Midnight
The Boomers (especially the younger ones, coming of age in the 1970s, but the hippies for sure) did a lot of damage. Gen-Xers always love the casual look so there was no real population to bring it back. GI and Silent Generations dressed to the nines for work and church, baws....

re: PTI’s Mike Wilbon asks if the NFL is stuck in 1964 - Ace Midnight
I generally like Mike Wilbon. I think he's a thoughtful, intelligent, sharp guy (Caveat: For a guy in sports media.) Having said that, this take is dumber than dumb. The NFL bends over backwards to be #Woke and SJW-friendly. Black head coaches have a relatively poor record overall. I'm not ...

re: What are the chances the GOP takes House and Senate in next election? - Ace Midnight
They have to worry about survival, first. The Dems have cracked the code, can win any election they decide and there is nothing GOP voters CAN do about it. Let's see if there is anything the GOPe politicians will even TRY to do about it....

re: Any major differences between Kindle tablets? - Ace Midnight
I don't have a lot of experience with any of the 7s, but my research led me to conclude that the 7 to 8 is quite a big step up. I have bought several 8s for others. Frankly, the 7 isn't much bigger than a hefty phablet (TWSS). For a phone, it would be overkill. For a tablet (even if the processo...
