  1. For many less well off its food or AC in super hot temperatures. In a poorly insulated mobile home a window AC is all they can afford. However the well off have made additional choices. Here is the new Tesla killer if you can afford it.
  2. The intersection of the delta variant and FOX's trump crowd will have predictable Darwinistic outcomes.
  3. That an average per school. College football stars could be earning as much as $2.4 million per year, based on NCAA revenues: study Time to call it what it is. Student slavery. Everyone makes money but those who put their health on the line in every game and some practices. Perhaps if they weren't playing football they could study. Get a second degree.
  4. His supporters love everything about that event. The court would have acquitted him and the DA would not have charged him if the pair was truly defending their home.His supporters love the idea of a AR-15, "defending the home", confronting "liberal Black supporters". Even more so now they are "victims" of a liberal DA.
  5. Thats the old GOP. The new GOP just threatens to kill off opponents.In secret recording, Florida Republican threatens to send Russian-Ukrainian ‘hit squad’ after rival
  6. "Journalists at the Dutch publication The Correspondent tracked down an educational video Shell released in 1991 called “Climate of Concern,” which warned, “Global warming is not yet certain, but many think that to wait for final proof would be irresponsible. Action now is seen as the only safe insurance.” There’s good evidence Exxon knew a decade earlier" Above from Shell Is Looking Forward The fossil-fuel companies expect to profit from climate change. I went to a private planning meeting and took notes.
  7. Mark McCloskey, who announced in May that he was running for a U.S. Senate seat in Missouri, was unapologetic after the hearing. After all pleading guilty in such an offense for a lawyer is a big plus in GOP circles "A St. Louis couple who gained notoriety for pointing guns at social justice demonstrators last year pleaded guilty Thursday to misdemeanor charges and agreed to give up the weapons they used during the confrontation. Patricia McCloskey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harassment and was fined $2,000. Her husband, Mark McCloskey, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor fourth-degree assault and was fined $750." As if campaigning for a a senate seat already “I’d do it again,” he said from the courthouse steps in downtown St. Louis. “Any time the mob approaches me, I’ll do what I can to put them in imminent threat of physical injury because that’s what kept them from destroying my house and my family.” Guilty of assault and harassment and using a AR-15 in commission of those offenses. That has to be gold star GOP references.
  8. Sure California should shut everything down. Absent that they should not expect sympathy. Florida could start abandoning low lying areas in flood prone areas. As the US federal government continues to subsidize Florida hurricane damages. Coastal damage and increasing salinity in Florida freshwater supplies. It pretends global warming is a democratic issue.
  9. The President of Switzerland arrived in his tractor! Typical Swiss culture, understated practicality.
  10. Holy crap! Are you trying to give him the heebie-jeebies. He has to get back to driving well rested. Have you never watched "The first 48"? Those places are dangerous.
  11. Substance eh? Your problem Brent is that you endlessly throw out quotes and references to the positions that you hold. Yet there is never any substance to what you reference. You either move the goalposts, ignore the more pointed counter-positions to your arguments. Or most commonly pretend as if you're right all along. Why you bother with your global warming position can only be put down as trolling. There are many, many issues to criticize President Biden and democrats on. Regurgitating FOX talking points is never successful because they have no fundamental analysis behind them. Perhaps if you broadened your conservative information sources your analysis would get deeper. Until then get used to the label. Because John is right. You lack any substance in any of your positions of debate.
  12. I've never lived under communism and the purest forms lasted for only a decade if that. Before corruption of the leadership and those who were insiders took over. Same for pure capitalism. Democracy introduces caps on the laissez faire of capitalism. It allows subsidies for sports including professional sports. They would not typically be called free if they are corrupted by any party to the election. Not when Black residents in America had the full rights of citizenship and the votes that came with that. More commonly known as democracy and free elections.Don't forget other young democracies at the same time as US slavery. Recognized that slavery was inconsistent with all men being equal(women too). With the associated equal right to vote on the direction of the state. I'd suggest how democracy and the vote has molded the Nordic countries. Far from pure capitalism yet more egalitarian than "communist' Cuba or even the purest forms of communism. Their GINI coefficients and rankings illustrate this.
  13. learning The beating will continue until morale^ improves.
  14. Democracy is an economic system. Free elections and a free media keep controls on the excess and corruption of governments. IMO any government needs a strong opposition otherwise corruption, cronyism,etc.is the natural result. i.e. All power corrupts, absolute.... we all know the rest. Democracy adjusts stimulus, taxes, etc. as the voters demand. Not immediately but the pendulum does swing. Democracy will always win in the end because autocracies always end up looking after themselves. Singapore the likely sole exception. Looking in the rear view mirror is trumpism. No populism isn't dead. Poland, and some other countries are still dealing with populism. America is moving ahead taking stock of the lessons learned more or less.
  15. Established, adjudicated, ruled, decided and finalized some time ago.
