In Topic: Will Trump appear in the GOP debates?

If the MSM are truly liberal shills, why are they trying to trash the Donald? Does anybody think he's electable in the general?

Stranger things have happened. Back in 2007 HRC thought Obama was a nice fellow who might have a chance in 2016. As long as Trump isn't taken seriously, he can adopt whatever populist positions work for him.

I'm all for free markets, but the fact is at least some of the medallion owners took out loans to buy their medallions, and then they drove many, many miles just paying the interest on their medallions before they ever got into the principle.

Don't forget that the low prices of taxi medallions in the 1980s was in part caused by the high interest involved in buying/earning them. The drivers who went into hock to buy them were clueless enough to think that their medallions might be their retirement nest-egg. They did all this in good faith, just as commercial fishermen buy and sell their licenses/quotas.

In Topic: 2014/15 Ski Season

Why are Australians so fixated on Nekoma when it comes to Japanese skiing? There is a lot of good skiing on Honshu, Hachimantai is totally underrated IMHO. APPI is another Honshu resort that has both the skiing and some lively apres ski. Compared to the outrageous lift ticket prices at Whistler, I can see why Japan is sometimes a bargain.
