So your ancestor was someone who couldn't let a feud drop.  Shocking.
Also, someone who thinks nothing of spreading hoghly personal lies about someone his.disagrees with, to deliberately offend them, and then blames the person he lied about for being offended. Shocking.

My ancestor proved that some people can't handle criticism, as this board still proves today. RIP, Alex.

If you’re ancestor made a statement about a historical event he would written a thousand words to back up his point.

He wouldn’t simply ignore the question. He would even explain when he didn’t really have to, a la The Reynolds Pamphlet.

How was an 1862 Civil War naval engagement more historically consequential than D Dai in June 1944?

We are paying $750.00 per day to house our immigrants in detention centers, from what I understand, we could turn them free in Detroit with an EBT card with $1,000.00 on it, and we could help them to get settled with housing, and the Unions can help them find jobs, etc, and in Detroit there could be redevelopment money and business loans.

Some of our cities are shrinking, and they are dying cities, we can bring the cities back to life by busing our immigrants to Detroit, Michigan, and to Gary, Indiana. Our new immigrants can breathe life into our dying cities.

Detroit City Council Member Raquel Castañeda-López wants us to bus our new immigrants to Detroit, she wants our new immigrants in her area. Our new immigrants can save Detroit. Detroit needs the people.

And Nevada is wide open and cheap.

We can easily welcome our new immigrants to the USA, and they can help to save the USA.

Salute,

Tony V.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied to a record high on Thursday, led by UnitedHealth shares, after testimony by Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell this week that signaled easier monetary policy could be implemented later this month.

The 30-stock average broke above 27,000 for the first time in its history, rising 227.88 points, or 0.9% to 27,088.08. The Dow first closed above 26,000 in January of 2018, so it’s been a little more than a year-and-half trek between 1,000 point moves. The gains were largely driven by expectations the Fed will cut rates, insulating the market from a slowing economy and a trade battle with China.
The Dow now joins the NASDAQ and the S&P 500 in record territory.

Trump is wanting to make a data base of the info of the illegal immigrants.

It is all bullshit. And the USA belongs as much to me as it does to him, and the USA belongs as much to the next guy as to me and Trump. The USA belongs to humanity. Trump needs to read the words on our Statue of Liberty again.

And we have dying cities with shrinking populations which need the new immigrants, such as Detroit, Michigan, and Gary, Indiana, which need the people. We need to bus our immigrants from our Southern Border to Detroit, and to Gary. And we are all good Christians here in the Western Hemisphere. (Of note, Raquel Welch's father was from Bolivia, the Latin women are beautiful.)

We also need workers in the vineyards, etc.

The USA is for everyone, it is as much yours as it is mine, and it belongs as much to the next guy as me and you.

Salute,

Tony V.

I remember a time wheen the economy was strong, the govt used growing tax receipts to pay down our national debt.

Pres. Clinton managed to balance a budget as he got his dick sucked and the Repubs recoiled in horror

Today the largest corporations and wealthiest individuals largely escape the responsibility of paying taxes.

What's going to happen when the opiate of lower interest rates no longer delivers the high, and the economy needs a greater fix?

Or the no regs/low regualtions on corporations leads to the next financial crisis?

Will the Chinese be the lender of last resort?

Caveat emptor.

I do not support Trump on a lot of issues.

Thank God that in the USA the people are in power, and thank God that we have checks and balances, in Congress, as well as with the Supreme Court, and thank God for states' rights.

And I have always been a Republican, I loved Reagan, and I even was front and center when Reagan gave a speech at Edwards when the first space shuttle landed. I remember when Reagan made all of our immigrants legal so that they could legally work, and pay taxes, and so that they could join labor unions, etc, and so that they could come out of the shadows and so that they could call the police in the case of an emergency, etc. Reagan was great. And Reagan was against walls, he told Gorbechev to tear down the Berlin Wall.
 
I wanted Marco Rubio for President of the USA, and I think that Marco would have been much better than Trump, and Marco supports our Latino allies here in the Western Hemisphere.

And I am against putting children in cages, and I am against separating families, and I am against putting people in detention camps. We can bus the people to Detroit, Michigan, and to Gary, Indiana, and we can set them free with help to get settled. Etc. There is no reason to put children in cages or to separate families, just put our immigrants on a bus to Detroit.

Salute,

Tony V.

Don’t buy on margin, bruh...

(Roughly to the tune of ‘Give My Regards to Broadway’)

Put my dough on Wall Street
in early 1929.
When my stock went all the way up
my broker said a million bucks was mine!
Then the stock went down and
he told me it was just a scare.
Put my dough on old Wall Street
and now I sell my apples there!*

*One of those Mad Magazine parody tunes... I think.
