  2. Just immigrated to the US, and I am not familiar with American politics. I come from a place where I am told to leave politics at home when you come to work, but I was surprised to overhear quite a lot of discussions about politics here. I know that diffe ...

  3. So, FB appears to have banned ZH articles from being shared/posted or even discussed on its platform. I'm torn on this one. I believe in free speech, but also the rights of a company to have discretion on its arbitration of content. But, to me this i ...

  8. Romney vs Obama

    Off Topic

    God I hope Romney wins. I'd hate to see another 4 years of that clown Obama. I really love how he presents himself to be a man of the people. If you went to Columbia and Harvard Law, you are not a man of the people, and cut from the same deck as Romn ...

  9. Personally, I don't buy all the "green-shoots" BS. However, the jobs number today blew out all estimates. Unemployment has hit 8.3% down 9.3% from 3 years ago. Again, I don't really want to bring up the underlying systemic issues (ie: ...

  12. Last week I wrote a post which mentioned the potential to buy equity in Eminem's music catalog from 1999-2013. Since writing that post, Eminem went on the BET Cypher and lashed out at Trump with his freestyle called, " The Storm ". In light ...

  29. Although this is a fairly political post, I thought it was rather interesting that Romney is still having a problem with this, particularly this close to the general election. As new jobs numbers come out that don't particularly help Obama, one would ...
