Re: U.S. Politics

. General Motors and the United Auto Workers are making headway in the strike negotiations. According to negotiators for the UAW, GM has agreed to invest $7.7 billion into US factories.

Re: U.S. Politics

. Trump pulls off another endorsement WIN, but the media isn't reporting the juciest outcomes because it was ALL bad news for Democrats. Trump went to Louisiana for a rally in Lake Charles for the purpose of bolstering ALL Republicans in that state. His rally was on the eve of the primary election f...

Re: U.S. Politics

. Another record fundraising haul. September showed the RNC taking in over $27 million in that month alone. This is the highest amount ever taken in by either party in an "off-cycle" month. The Republicans continue to DOUBLE the Democrat Socialists in fundraising. The RNC attributes the large donati...

Re: US Sports News

Dietze and Rabb, those are some historic names in LSU football. You are fortunate to have befriended them. The Gators seem to be a one=dimensional team - great defence - and they have reverted to the uniforms they wore in the 1957 (?) Gator Bowl when they lost to Ole Miss, 7-3; however, I am pullin...

Re: US Sports News

I am not a fan of the Big Ten and think that the Tide, L.S.U., Georgia, Florida, Auburn and Clemson could defeat Ohio State. My dislike of the Buckeyes goes back to Woody Hayes and his 3 yards and a cloud of dust philosophy. I saw Minnesota beat Georgia Tech last year in Detroit and was impressed b...

Re: U.S. Politics

FddjtuMGwaw Cramer and Krugman are both seeing the light. If it does not benefit China, it is not done. That's why China is confounded by Trump. "America First" means the same thing. All of that said, US trade with Mexico and Canada is HUGE compared to China. That's why Pelosi won't bring the USMCA...

Re: Cost of Medical Care - Clinics vs. Private Hospital

. I think it's like anywhere else where there are price differences. Shop around. Every pharmacy that I've ever used in the last decade has been less expensive than the cost of the same medication at the hospital pharmacy. That wasn't a big surprise. I expected it to be that way. However, I have fou...
