Re: The Demise of the OC Weekly

Yes, I am afraid that our friendly virus will drive the last nails into the Postal Service and print publications. Strange to visit a doctor's office and not having any magazine to leaf through.

Re: Renaming John Wayne Airport

George Argyros? The worst ambassador (to Spain) that this country had?

In reality, though, John Wayne hated the airport.

I donated most of the stimulus funds

Back in March, when it was announced, I knew that we did not need the $2400. We are retired, did not lose any jobs and our Social Security Benefits are still arriving (fingers crossed) and am withdrawing from IRA as needed, about half of what the RMD would have been (the other half is being rolled o...

The Demise of the OC Weekly

Yes, just found out about it. One more nail in the demise of the print media, even before the virus. (snip) The newsweekly, which was founded in 1995, had been offloaded from Voice Media Group to local publisher Duncan McIntosh in 2016. The next year, OC Weekly’s editor Gustavo Arellano, who is now ...

Who's Zooming Whom?

Zoom has been one of the hottest stocks on the market this year—just not the Zoom you think. Shares of Zoom Technologies have surged 10-fold since the first of the year. But most of those traders likely think they are buying Zoom Video Communications. ZM 7.47% The latter is a Silicon Valley wunderki...

Biden and Sanders Offer a Choice: Unite or Fight?

(for the ones still in love with Sanders) It isn’t hard to imagine a Joe Biden administration in which Kamala Harris is vice president, Michael Bloomberg is treasury secretary, Pete Buttigieg is homeland security secretary, Tom Steyer is climate-change czar and Andrew Yang is commerce secretary—or, ...

Yes, they develop medications to make money. This is human nature. Do you think that Edison, or Steve Job or others develop new products to make other people happy? No. Profit motivates innovation.

Let them wait in line for long time. Why bother to be innovative? Sanders had a least heart attack t...

Re: He is not a liberal, he's the end of liberalism - interesting perspective from... David Brooks

A recent poll found that a high percentage of voters in CA and in TX have a "positive view" of socialism and I have to wonder whether they even know what socialism means. Just as many support Medicare for all until they hear the details and then they no longer do.

He is worse! Like Trump he admires strongmen. He does not care about anyone. His so-called "care" are just vehicles to advance his ambitions. He is not even a Democrat! Has never been a Democrat, has actively campaigned against Democratic candidates including hoping for a primary challenge to Obama ...

StarTribunr editorial: Sanders tries to rewrite his past on authoritarianism

For the last three years, the U.S. president has accommodated autocrats. November’s election threatens to make it eight years — even if President Donald Trump isn’t re-elected. Based on favorable comments he’s made in the past on Cuba, Nicaragua and even the Soviet Union, Democratic front-runner Sen...

(snip) I’ve just watched populism destroy traditional conservatism in the G.O.P. I’m here to tell you that Bernie Sanders is not a liberal Democrat. He’s what replaces liberal Democrats. Traditional liberalism traces its intellectual roots to John Stuart Mill, John Locke, the Social Gospel movement ...

AI Is the Next Workplace Disrupter--and It's Coming for High-Skilled Jobs

The next wave of labor-saving technology will wear a white collar. Artificial intelligence—programming machines to think more like humans—is expected to alter how Americans work on a scale similar to the impact of robotics and desktop computers. But employees affected by it are much more likely to b...
