Doc,
I'm not buying anything right now. Mostly just watching what I have right now -- with sometimes mixed emotions.
MSFT, which is my largest Common holding, has been very good to me lately.

Re: Chick-fil-a in the news.

Trying to recalibrate target market to something dramatically different than what got you to a certain position is an inherently bad idea. . Vercingetorix, I served on a Board of Directors with the then CEO of Pier 1 Imports (during their glory years). One day in a meeting, he said something I have...

Re: Chick-fil-a in the news.

Maybe, but I am sure the executive team considered that. Doc, I'm not so sure. That's what they thought at Target and Bud Light. When Dan Cathy announced his opposition to LQGBT, ad infinitum, the restaurants in the South were flooded with appreciative customers. Customers can be funny creatures. R...

Doc,
If it becomes widely known, it will cost them business in the South, which is their strongest area.

Perspective

Whether it is a good day or a bad day is just a matter of perspective.

Re: Reparations demands are spiking

My great great great grandfather was a racist. You need a couple more "greats" in there to be sure you're not tainted. And, before you whip out your "racist card" which you have done before to me, let me ask you an interesting question: What is the number of black kids (mostly boys) for whom you ha...

Re: Reparations demands are spiking

The way I see it, the US has been paying reparations since the establishment of the Freedman's Bank in 1865. Since then civil rights programs, poverty programs, social welfare programs, equal opportunity education programs and public sector affirmative action programs have been "reparations." Nero,...

Re: Reparations demands are spiking

Cultural yes. I'd say a lot of these cultural issues were developed by left-wing policy and especially the "Great Society".

Re: It was inevitable

Those things always find a way. We had several inches of rain in May and they are now hatching. Doc, It doesn't take much. They can breed and hatch in the water in a curled up leaf. Fortunately, they won't last as long in your climate as in mine. Also, I have a creek out back and a little lake not ...
