KENNETH S ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 64 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.

  diceman: <saffuna: Obama had been a state senator for eight years. He was a United States senator for four years>

(with the inner-city murder rates
to prove it)

<All before being elected president.>

All those dead.

<He had considerable goverrnment experience>

A Democrat politician, Whooaaaa!!!

<he hired competent aides to handle different areas of policy.>

Based on the results, he couldnt even do that.

Horrific, multi-trillion dollar failure sounds so nice when a partisan sums it up.

Liberals found a way to create the costs, and carnage of war, domestically.

...but one must support the Political Industrial Complex.

  saffuna: Kushner, discussing the new Office of Innovation which he will head:

<“The government should be run like a great American company. Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens.”>

Say whaaa....?

As Colbert pointed out, "We are not customers, we own the store. You work for us, buddy."

How long will people continue to support these clowns?

(Colbert also revealed the original name for Kushner's agency: Bureau of Obvious Nepotism.)

  HeMateMe: <big religion> why don't you get some, before pointing fingers at other people? You're a loud mouth racist and a disgusting person. There's no church that would want you in attendance, other than perhaps a Baptist congregation with KKK sympathies.

You suck

  perfidious: <big lying catamite....You can't be a Christian and be a pot head....>

Perhaps, perhaps not, but you can obviously be a Christian of sorts and be a meth head--you constitute proof of that.

<....Polluting your sound mind and your body, as the temple of the Lord, is not something that a real Christian can do....>

<big hypocrite> riding high again, free of a promise he never intended to honour anyway.

<....You are a <big lying Christian> which is a fake, weak, wannabe little Christian. You make meth your God and you serve yourself, your feelings, your pride and your desires first, thus making yourself your own God. You are your own idol. When you say you are a Christian, you are a liar.>

You wouldn't have left out something there, would you? You know, like the rest of the sentence you took that from?

  TheFocus: <Big Pawn: <focus: And now he says he is sticking to a three post a day limit... we all know his limit was site-imposed.>

<<And the devil whispers to <focus>, "Hey, focus, <big pawn> is lying about posting three times a day. Call him on in in front of everyone and stir him up against you">>

Okay, I went back and read your baker's dozen. I got an extra one in my Forum.

I knew already that you had went beyond your limit before I challenged you. But I remember seeing your posts where you were almost "bragging" about your self-imposed post limit. It was so easy to see that you were wanting someone to call you on it.

So to have some fun and see how far you would go, I challenged you to a dozen.

Why a dozen? You would have proven yourself easily with four or five or six.

But if I wanted to make you dance, which I did and you so predictably did so by replying with such long-winded posts (probably you learned that from <Abdel>), all I had to do was pick a ludicrous number to ask you for.

I'm gonna chalk this one up in my win column over you because I did stir you up. I made you post a dozen times just to make you prove a point!

That makes me 2 and 0 against you, <Buffoon>.

Get yourself a new dance dress. You wore that old one out.

Okay, <Focus>, you've got me. I confess. <Big Pawn> is my sockpuppet. (It must be true; even <Aunt Jemima> said so.)

Not only that, but my sockpuppet has sockpuppets of his own. Beat *that*, Jim Henson. :-D

  Big Pawn: < OhioChessFan: <Focus: And now he says he is sticking to a three post a day limit... we all know his limit was site-imposed.> Sometimes, you're such an idiot. "we all" doesn't include me. In fact, he posted four times one day, to forestall anyone making such a claim! >

< thegoodanarchist: <Big Pawn: Okay, I have made my point with <the focus> and I forgive him for calling me a hypocrite and a liar> Damn, that was fun to see!>

<focus: I apologize. I was wrong.>

That's right, <focus>, nice and meek now. I didn't want to run the sword through you so brutally, but you asked for it. Others thought you were being an idiot too, but look at who is welcoming you with <open arms>: pefidious the liberal gambler and <abdel> the liberal Muslims. Those are your people. You are a liberal.

  Big Pawn: <thegoodanarchist: <<<tga>, this is a very interesting answer, and it seems to lean more toward straight up theism than agnosticism. You must have a mind that is very disciplined and ....> Soft soap for sale! Soft soap, only a dollar a bottle!>

Why are you so negative, <Abdel>?

Someone else gets a compliment, and instead of being happy for that person, you have to dump all over it.

Why are you so petty and negative?>

<abby> is, as I said earlier, jealous of your education, skill in critical thinking, and the fact that I admire those qualities about you and not him. <abby> has a big, sensitive ego, and it gets bruised easily and often. Same with the <chubby gambler>; he doesn't like to see compliments go out because it means he's not getting one, and these people are small, petty and hateful. What's worse is that <abby> spends most of his time here trying to smear me (unsuccessfully) and marginalize me, but to his sheer dismay, I remain as popular and relevant as always, and there is *no doubt* that this drives him crazy. But I have to admit, beating up on <abdel> is like brutalizing a man in a straight jacket and it *almost* makes me have pity for him, but I don't.

Thank you for you apology and your further comments, <focus>, and in return I will pray that you overcome your addiction.

<hmm:> "RACIST" (LOL) this isn't the Oprah show! You think I'm a disgusting person because you're a broken man, a liberal that hasn't gotten over MOMMY yet, a weak, sorry, poor excuse of a man that isn't used to seeing or hearing a real, masculine man say it as it is. All of you liberals have the same problem in that you are WEAK, GIRLY men and in order to cover up your weak girlyness, you attack masculinity as if it's bad. YOU DON'T FOOL ME!

NEXT!!

  saffuna: I'm curious to know if anything of the page's conservatives can defend one or more of the following:

1. Kushner being given control of four major policy areas.

2. Ivanka receiving a top security clearance despite Trump calling it fake news that he would give his kids clearances.

3. Kushner referring to the people as "customers," even in a metaphor.

4, Trump saying health care reforrm is "an easy one."

I won't hold my breath.

It is morally uplifting to watch <Aunt ButterTux> in action over his/her/her last 17 posts and to be reminded once again that real men always control their emotions, never get angry, and never even slightly cut loose with a completely disproportionate, scorched-earth response to an essentially innocent if provocative question.

  saffuna: We should have some sympathy for <big pawn> and understand his acidic posts of the past few days. It can't be easy to see your absolute hero, the person you have centered your entire attitude on the page around, it can't be easy to see that hero shrink to about a third of his previous size when pricked by the failure of his very first attempt to get legislation passed.

  HeMateMe: throughout all of this, not a word from Dr. Ben, Ben Carson. I wonder if he still has a pulse?

There's so many sneaky things going on in this 'administration,' I think it's going to collapse under it's own weight. So, Ivanka and Jarod both have offices in the White House. What next, a cabinet post for Beiber?

Remember Trump's 'charity,' the one where no one quite knew where the contributions were going to? The same charity he shut down after it got investigated? This was during the fall, before the election.

Everyone in that charity was an unpaid volunteer except--two of Trump's children. I would bet any money that they were each getting paid $100k, something like that, for jobs they worked 8 hours a week at, if even that much. It was just a way for Trump and his family to keep donations sent to him by wealthy Republican donors. ["Hey, it looks better in my back pocket than theirs, right?!"] When the media turned up the heat Trump folded up the chairs, pulled the shades down and disappeared. The flim flam man.

  Colonel Mortimer: I reckon <Big Pawn> has clicked on the chessgames.com feature "Can you play like a Girl" and got most of the moves wrong.

For an <Alpha Male>, that's like going on a porn set full of horny women and offering a limp dangler out of stage fright.

Mar-29-17  Mrs Butterworth: <Big Pawn: <TheFocus: <Big Pawn> has sunk to the level of <Big Buffoon>. It was beginning to get boring watching his three-pronged attack (or was it four?, so difficult to keep track with his many caricatures of himself) that kept fizzling out...> Hey <focus>, what is an Indian?

Proof that Mexicans once *%*#!@ buffalos.

Five. >

LOL! LOL!! LOL!!!

Hope you're listening <focus>. Ask a stupid question, and <Big Pawn> tears your face off and stomps on it!

Next time, stay in your own weight class <boy>. You can contend in sweathog food fights with the likes of <bartle>, <jiffy>, <gambler> and the other special cases at the loser's table. Those are your people.

You thought you'd stir up the <Big Pawn> and you were right! Now you regret it, like all the fools who think they have to go poke a stick into a beehive, but too late.

Have a nice day <idiot focus>. This is only the beginning.

  Colonel Mortimer: The reverse metamorphosis is complete. <Mrs Butterfly> transforms back to the ugly caterpillar that <Big Spawned> her.
Mar-29-17  Mrs Butterworth: < Big Pawn: <focus>, I want you to think about something important. You can't be a Christian and be a pot head. Polluting your sound mind and your body, as the temple of the Lord, is not something that a real Christian can do. >

As an atheist, I'd put this a little differently, but <Big Pawn> is right. It's never good to pollute your body -- the body you were born with and the only one youll ever get -- for the fleeting pleasure of intoxication with drugs or alcohol.

If you're high or buzzed, you can't fulfill your potential. You're hurting no one but yourself, and it makes you a LOSER.

No wonder so many of you will never be anything but sweathogs.

Mar-29-17  Mrs Butterworth: <colonel morterror: The reverse metamorphosis is complete. <Mrs Butterfly> transforms back to the ugly caterpillar that <Big Spawned> her. >

Another "decent scientist" like <abdel>?

Butterflies spawn caterpillars, not the other way around.

Pretender.

Mar-29-17  Mrs Butterworth: < john barleycorn: <Marmot PFL: ... Democracy only works when the majority party can unite and impose their will upon the minority, and on this occasion they couldn't get it done.>

Good point. <marmot> is talking about mob rule, not democracy.

As usual, it takes <jbc> to see through the pretend intellects and stick a pin in the pompous balloons in this thread.
