    I appreciate that. I think there is a major problem with social media and that it drives outrage. We often hear how people say they wouldn’t say the same things in person that they do online. My own view is that I would and have said the same things online as I do in person.

    Also I don’t believe that people can or should be reduced down to just one aspect of their personality. Especially there political views. We might not agree politically but we agree that we love Houston Sports teams (although given GARM and Astros forums those might be more divisive than politics)

    That's because you're a good person and you handle yourself with class. There's no question social media is extremely toxic. It's created an outlet for people to say whatever they want with little to no reprocussions.

    That is spot on. I separate politics from how I view people because they're so divisive at this point. We all love Houston sports teams (at least I think). Astros forum is tough right now. They're having a tough season and we've been spoiled with all their success. Rockets are obviously a work in progress. GARM is definitely hard to get through but I think a lot of it is just people trolling the site.

    Again, I really appreciate your insight and respectful interaction. It's very rare these days.

    The DOXIng thread to me was very strange. Most normal people wouldn't even have that cross their mind. I typically wouldn't want anyone banned because everyone has a differeing opinion on things but since he did that to you as well he probably should be banned. It's only a matter of time before he actually does it. You're 100% correct. They call Trump every name in the book and any criticism of Biden he flys of the rails. I dislike both of them. I dislike most politicians honestly.

    He wouldn't do a single thing to me that's why I just laugh it off. Plus, I'm an adult so I wouldn't be fighting people over the internet. He needs to grow up. Honestly, I'd buy him a beer and watch a game.

    I still have good friends who are die hard Trump supporters. We disagree a lot politically but still get along otherwise I get along with some of them better than I do some people who I agree with far more politically.

    Everything has been politicized in our culture and also people are thinking that insulting people whether calling them “fascists” or “wokies” is political dialogue. Does that really make a difference especially on largely anonymous social media?

    I don’t think so but also I don’t think spending so much of your time getting outraged and insulting people is a good way to live. There are important issues and yes we should speak out and express our views even passionately. That isn’t the same as just insulting and denigrating others. It also ends up hardening views rather than be convincing.

    And yes the Stros are making it hard to love them these days.

    Like always well said. Sometimes you just have to ignore it even when you want to venture a respectful response.

    We'll tough the season out. Probably not ideal for fans but we'll survive

    You have friends who want to fundamentally destroy American democracy and destroy this country. That's who those people are. Call a spade a spade

    Prepare for a second inflation shock like in the 70s.

    Central banks are buying gold.

    Interest rates and gold are climbing simultaneously.

    Modest US economic growth of 2.5 % GDP growth in 2023 was the result of an extreme fiscal deficit of USD 1.7 trillion (which accounts for 6.5 % points of GDP growth) and in addition a worrying expansion of consumer debt.

    Let's wager real money on this??? I guarantee you we won't see a second inflation shock within the next 3 years?? Let's wager 5k? 1k?? Talk is always cheap but very few people put money behind their batshit ideas.

    right wing donkeys always fear monger hoping the public buys it and stops them from raising taxes on them. Same Ole bullshit

    Eliminating noncompetes and airplane refunds are probably better domestic policy accomplishments than any Republican has had in literally 40 years.

    Also making the overtime threshold 56k provides a instant raise to over 11 million employees.... yet some morons think both sides are equally as bad. Utter braindead

    just lke Invisible_nomics, u have no idea what you're talking about

    which one? and so what?

    ATW, unknowing, just gave a thumbs-up to Biden's fiscal policies, when you factor in that this toke place on the heels of the pandemic / economic shut-downs and Trump's ill-conceived trade war,

    I'm confused. Are you up for a friendly wager? The environment moving forward is heavily deflation. AI will automate millions of jobs and drive up growth.

    China nd Russia buying up gold to hedge from US sanctions doesn't equate to some inflation cycle. China obviously wants to hedge in the event of a Taiwan invasion

    for the education of ATW, this move signals that

    the recent de-dollarization effort (by Russia/China/India) is not working.​
