KENNETH ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 63 years old) United States of America

[what is this?]
Kenneth Saul Rogoff learned chess from his father at age six, but only took up the game in earnest when he received a chess set for his 13th birthday. He was soon recognised as a chess prodigy. By age 14, he was a USCF master and New York State Open Champion, and shortly thereafter became a senior master, the highest US national title. At sixteen, Rogoff dropped out of high school to concentrate on chess, and spent the next several years living primarily in Europe and playing in tournaments there. When eighteen, he made the decision to go to college and pursue a career in economics rather than to become a professional player, although he continued to play and improve for several years afterward.

Rogoff was awarded the IM title in 1974 and the GM title in 1978. He came third in the World Junior Championship of 1971 and finished second in the US Championship of 1975, which doubled as a Zonal competition, one-half point behind Walter Shawn Browne; this result qualified him for the 1976 Interzonal at Biel, where he finished 13-15th. In other tournaments he finished equal first at Norristown 1973 and Orense 1976.

Early in his economics career, Rogoff served as chief economist at the International Monetary Fund and also at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. He is currently the Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

Jul-23-16  thegoodanarchist: < TheFocus: Get ready for the site's Muslim defenders to come out and talk about how these terrorist attacks are because of acts by the U.S. and Western countries.

Why not just admit what we all really know? Islam itself is nothing but a religion that feeds on blood.>

One of the (few) weaknesses of the Democratic Party, I agree.

Some on this board posit that an empty ignore list proves one tolerant. Nobody is on my ignore list, and I welcome free expression. I am truly delighted that you support the right of "liberal fascists" like myself (I never realized that I was one) to express ourselves freely.

< you APOLOGIZED to another member of your Liberal fascism team for discussing it >

Now, please explain exactly what the hell <it> you are talking about.

Your jokes are hilarious.

Now wait just a cotton pickin' minute there, son...

Jul-23-16  thegoodanarchist: <Big Pawn: ...

Merkel is covering up all the atrocities and dragging people out of their homes for saying bad things about Muslims on facebook.

The German people need to drag her behind a horse on the ground for 5 miles and string her up.>

Yes, we must all keep in mind the question "Who would Jesus torture?"

Jul-23-16  thegoodanarchist: <Big Pawn: When they commit acts of terror while shouting "Jesus Save" come find me.>

They got confused and shouted "Torture Merkel" instead.

Maybe you can lecture them on the difference.

On second thought, maybe not...

Jul-23-16  thegoodanarchist: <devere: You guess wrong, Little Pawn. Out of necessity I caused a few bloody noses when I was young, and I'd love to be 10 again and meet young Trump in a schoolyard. I hate and despise bullies! You yourself wouldn't stand much chance against me because your big white sheet would inhibit your field of vision. LOL>

You are one of the few conservatives on this site for whom I actually have some respect.

Jul-23-16  HeMateMe: I think Trump's kids might turn out to be better than their famous father. They all went to Wharton, high powered Ivy League type school. None of them have been busted for drugs, drunk driving, nothing stupid.

As I've read about it, they got an allowance of $100/week while on campus. That's enough for beers, maybe a dinner date here or there, but not enough money to turn into a Ted Kennedy or Lindsay Lohan.

Whitney Houston's kid is brain dead because she emulated how her parents lived (and died). Whatever else Trump is, he seems to have been a decent parent, despite dumping his first wife for a trophy bimbo after she got old and wrinkly.

Jul-23-16  saffuna: <They all went to Wharton, high powered Ivy League type school. None of them have been busted for drugs, drunk driving, nothing stupid.>

Except to go to Africa and kill wild animals for sport.

<Whatever else Trump is, he seems to have been a decent parent, despite dumping his first wife for a trophy bimbo after she got old and wrinkly.>

A very long-distance parent as they were growing up.

Ah say! ah, say!

You just reached the limits of mah librulism with your spelling, son!

Jul-23-16  HeMateMe: why was he long distance? were they in boarding schools, as teenagers? he was on the French Riviera with Marla while they were coming home to an empty house?

I think Trump's real estate job required a lot of travel. You can't fault someone for working hard. Of course if he was just running around having fun and leaving the kids alone in NYC, then that's another thing altogether.

Jul-23-16  saffuna: As I said, long distance. Ivana raised them before and after the divorce. Then he took a big role when they finished college and started working for him.

C'mon, <tga>. You can do better.

A girlfriend once told me that there is something worthwhile in everyone, and you should find out what it is.

But for that bit of wisdom, God knows why I hang out here ;>)

Jul-23-16  ljfyffe: <devere>Because it's not a socialist country or a paradise; you're very confused: dependence on a single product such as oil is no way to establish successful socialist policies that exist in a lot of developed nations, American 'exceptionalism' notwithstanding where public servicrs such as heath care and news networks are still strickly controlled by business interests.

Bobbi Kristina Brown died, very nearly one year ago.

"EXTREMELY EXTREME," in fact.

(But then, I suppose he *could* be worth while as an example of how human beings should *not* act.)

Point taken, but as you have stated before, <diceman> has occasional flashes of wit.

I put up a red cape, but you were not the adversary I first expected ;>)

OK, I yield.

Lemming jokes have NO redeeming qualities.

That is half-true. :-D

Jul-24-16  devere: "Trumpís Speech Makes It Official: Itís Democrat v. Democrat in 2016" by David French

<The GOP nominee proposes himself as the sole solution to the nationís ills. Thatís the opposite of conservative.>

http://www.nationalreview.com/artic...

A very interesting analysis of why conservatism is failing in the USA.

Jul-24-16  HeMateMe: <As I said, long distance. Ivana raised them before and after the divorce>

But--Trump is 70 years old. Wouldn't his first batch of kids have been teenagers, even college age, by the time he divorced Ivana? He must of been with them for at least their first 12 years.

I'm almost certain the divorce was his fault, Ivana was just getting too old to look good in the bedroom, but Trump doesn't seem like the type who spoils his kids. I think he worked himself, while in college.

Jul-24-16  HeMateMe: Moody's predicts that Clinton will destroy Trump, in an analysis of electoral college votes:

"With Nevada's six votes switching over to the GOP, Moody's forecasts a Clinton win with 326 electoral votes to Trump's 212. To win, a candidate needs 270 votes"
