8/17    Why is McCain so bad again?  He seems to be the least
        pro-torture Republican candidate.
        \_ His immigration stance killed his candidacy.  McCain-Feingold didn't
        \_ Talk about damning with faint praise.
        \_ If you're a (D) then it doesn't matter.  If you're a (R) then you'd
           know why.

8/20    when was the last senator to actually win the presidential
        election?  I mean 'senator who is a senator while running',
        not former senator.
        \_ JFK. From wikipedia entry: "Kennedy is the most recent to be
           elected while serving in the Senate."

        Jim Cramer, reacting to 50bp drop in discount rate:
        "We will go to 14,500 by year-end"
        \_ looks like the fed is doing a lot. HALF PERCENT baby
           \_ you know it was to the discount rate, not the fed funds rate.
              the response was to the change in bias, the expectation of a
              discount rate cut soon - the "half percent" was for the unwashed

8/17 (
        L.A. Times reports CFC bank web site slow, so customers crowded branch
        offices to transfer out money that exceeds FDIC coverage
        \_ Panic on the streets of London. Panic on the streets of
           Birmingham. I wonder to myself, could life ever be sane again?
           \_ Panic isn't insanity.

8/15    Fascinating interview with Ayn Rand by Phil Donahue.
        Ayn Rand says Middle East's oil belongs to us because of contracts
        everybody signed that gave us all rights to their oil. In addition,
        we have better use for oil thus we're the ones deserving oil.
        Also look at part 2-- Altruism is horrible, says Ayn Rand. By
        helping retarded kids, we deprive ourselves of resources that
        could be spent on gifted kids.
        \_ Are there really any Randites here to be trolled?
                                \- Randroid(tm)
        \_ On a related note:
             -- ilyas
           \_ Interesting article. The Brazils live in the land that
              loves mediocraty, what did they expect-- royal
              treatments for being special? BOO HOO! Our kid is smarter
              than YOUR kids but we don't get special treatments! Our
              system is failing! America sucks! Fucking whiners.
              \- does it sound suspect to anybody else there would
                 be as many people at +3sd IQ as -3sd? ...
                   "only about 62,000 have IQs above 145.
                   (A similar number have IQs below 55.)"
                 i would think there are many disorders which
                 could push people into the lower domain. so
                 this may be a property of the IQ test score
                 distribution, but maybe not a property of the
                 underlying population. once again test outcome !=
                 population distribution. e.g. a "geography quotient"
                 test that ask "what is the capital of england, france,
                 russia, and burkina faso".
                 test that asks "what is the capital of england/france/
                 russia/burkina faso". although it's possible the
                 mass distribution on each side of the mean isnt
                 too asymmetric.
        \_ part 5-- "Charlie's Angels is my favorite show. The Angels
           are elite and I love them." Dumb bitch.

8/16    This is a funny SAM
        \_ Funny, good one thanks for posting!
        \_ Don't know about the two Koreas, but this is very true for the
           Chinese communities.  Chinese communities of Mainland, Taiwan and
           Hong Kong origins unite well whenever issues of Imperial Japan are
           brought up.
           \_ If there was one good thing about Hitler, it would be that
              mentioning his name tends to unite the Jewish communities
              \_ What is a "Jewish communities"?  Can you name a few?
