  1. I'm pretty sure that black kids are not afraid of confronting their past. Unlike the lily white snowflakes of the valley.
  2. You are a fine man and a shining example for all. Unfortunately everyone else in the world is racist and at least part of the way that we all judge character is by the appearance of a person at first impression. It saddens me that I can not be the perfect person that you are.

    It’s so hard to keep track of the Federalist Society judges.

    As far as Gorsuch is concerned girls are for holding down and assaulting.

    I'm sure it's funny, but not available in my country.

    Privilege

    I've said this before. Here where I live people regularly complain the first nations peoples are given too many advantages for free. I have never once heard anyone say that they would prefer to change places with them though.
  7. Well.....they do claim it will somehow make white children fill with shame and even hate themselves. A little projection perhaps?

    Well then, that's a cool way of completely ignoring the point.

    And I suppose you believe that you earned all the privilege you were born with.

    Indeed. And some people are dealt better hands than others. Part of playing the game is knowing when to sit out the round and get a better hand next time. Life is not fair and it is not a casino game either. I have no idea why you would think that the playing field is level. How ridiculous.
  11. This disgusting and inaccurate accusation has been repeated by the same poster in this forum several times. He appears to be obsessed with the woman's sex life for some reason.
  12. People are still people and tribes are still tribes. The decline in the number of lynchings shows that progress is occurring. It is hard to change people but it is possible to change their behavior.
  13. There are a lot of inherent advantages to EVs over soon to be obsolete ICE powered cars. And really few disadvantages. The writing on the wall is pretty clear. As evidenced by every major automobile manufacturer's statements. Even without considering greenhouse gases the days of inefficient reciprocating pistons and prone to breakdown driveline components for autos are numbered. Trucks and buses that need to go further are another matter at this point.

    covid-19

    Good old Manitoba deplorable truck driving anti-vaxxers had a "protest" near the border today. Canada now requires them to be vaccinated to cross the border. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/manitoba-truckers-vaccine-protest-international-border-1.6317604
  15. Yes, the culture warriors who insist that the European Heritage is what defines the USA and can "Never Be Forgotten" also say that the history of everyone else is just ancient and irrelevant and to "Just Get Over It".
  16. Sure, you could just adopt the UAE model. Then rebrand it as "The Great Society". Just what you need, another class of non-citizens. Steven Miller style.
  17. Walmarts in Canada often have McDonalds stores in them. Is that not a thing for you?
  18. I hope so. The winter here has been colder and wetter than last year, as predicted. I miss El Nino.
  19. That's fine if it enrages more of the deplorables and gets them riled up and demanding vaccinations!

    The Australians bungled the whole thing terribly. But in the end with all the publicity it got maybe it will contribute to more people realizing that even if they don't believe they are better off getting vaccinated than not. It certainly is a lesson for those few refusing high profile sports stars that not everyone will accommodate them.
  21. In all these years the only time I've come close to rear ending someone it has been my own damned fault. Yes, suicidal drivers are a possibility, but the classic "brake check" is someone pissed off at being followed too closely. And many truck drivers do that all the time. There is no shortage of idiots driving trucks. If they have US plates I always assume they are armed idiots.
  22. That can't happen if you don't tailgate.
  23. I have met the enemy and it is us.
  24. And Harris too. Make room for President Pelosi.
  25. NOAA has an agenda. From their website. How can anyone trust a government agency with such a mission statement? Our mission To understand and predict changes in climate, weather, ocean, and coasts, to share that knowledge and information with others, and to conserve and manage coastal and marine ecosystems and resources.
