  1. Just like any other ordinary tourist.
  2. Funny, it kinda seemed like you thought what Europe is doing meant something when you started this thread yesterday. If you’re now saying that what Europe does is irrelevant and therefore your OP is pointless then I guess the thread can end here.
  3. Commercial car washes don't wash the same car 100+ times per day.
  4. See, that's exactly it. You seem to need it to be proven that something has happened before you can countenance any possibility that it will happen. It is a frankly bizarre misunderstanding of the relationship between present and future. There is over 20 times more wind power in Europe now than there was in 2000 and it's being built at an increasing rate, yet the idea that there will be more of it in future seems to fill you with the same incredulity as if an elephant walked into your kitchen wearing a top hat, smoking a cigar and challenged you to a game of tennis.
  5. Because there are enough coal powerplants sitting around and not enough wind and solar - yet. Time and again you appear completely baffled by the concept that if something doesn't exist now, it could exist in the future if we build it. Please let me know where it is in that thought process you get lost and I'll do my best to try and explain it to you.
  6. No kidding. And this is where reporting matters. I mean, is that headline really representative? I'd have thought that "Jordan bullies DOJ employees over refusal to investigate Youtube conspiracy theories" would give a better snapshot of the story.
  7. All of Trump's boys were involved with his campaign, his business and his ongoing publicity machine. They were active and public participants in Trump's candidacy and presidency. Hunter Biden is none of those things.
  8. Why is Hunter Biden one of the things they should be reporting on right now?
  9. The news is wrong because they're not buying into your Hunter Biden derangement syndrome?
  10. Balls. Wish I'd thought of that now.
  11. The tactics don't make either speech good or bad, the speech itself does. Imagine a private school or university run by religious nutters who give their full approval to a valedictorian speech about how Jesus will cast the transgender abominations into the fiery pit of hell - would that speech be a good speech because it was given without subterfuge? Would it be qualitatively any different to the same speech given in a different school without the teacher's knowledge? I don't see it.
  12. What social programs? You've stated that you support them, you've stated what they should not do (ie actually provide any form of free healthcare or other handout). What do you want them to do that is directly helpful to a person who's just been forced to have a baby they can't afford to adequately care for?
  13. So how, specifically, do they have the strongest support for them? So again what, specifically, do conservatives advocate for and endorse? If you don't want a safety net that provides anything not paid for at point of supply then what do you want? Please try answering with details rather than platitudes.
  14. I think you're right that John is looking at the Bush era with rose tinted glasses, but there's elements of both. On a personal level he genuinely does seem to be a decent man, but that doesn't take away from his horrendous political decisions. He may have convinced himself it was for the good of his country but 100's of thousands dead in Iraq and the surrounding area (never mind the rise of ISIS) from a war he started under false pretences and the full embrace of torture as a tool of the state alone were morally bankrupt choices he has to take responsibility for. I think the idea of him as just a convenient stooge for Cheney and Rumsfeld et al is both too charitable and an underestimation of his abilities.
  15. I find whenever you visit a new DZ you can always tell the people who love gossiping and backbiting the most because they're the first people you'll hear moaning about 'all the drama'. Same with the last word online. The only people who care about having it are the ones who keep complaining that other people want it. So why did you start this conversation? are you just looking for an excuse to have an irrelevant argument that you can bitch about not getting the last word in? Whatever floats your boat, I guess.
