  1. Just stopping in to echo this. I come from a land where I chose not to give a platform to people who are either stupid or intellectually dishonest. Believe me, the world is a much better place if you just hit "off" on those people instead of playing into their desire for attention or to social media relevance algorithms. There's a reason that the dumbest comment on any FB article is at the top and getting the most exposure and that's the world in which people like BH thrive.
  2. You've made a pretty big leap between him writing an article debating actionable legislation regarding hate speech and him calling for penalties for thought crimes. The first ammendment and for that matter no law is so absolute as to ignore it's implication regarding public safety and nation security.
  3. You're the one who started this entire hurricane thing, chose your method and said it was a valid metric for disproving what you said is a claim about global warming. The argument you've lost is with yourself utilizing a claim that you have made. The thing is that your argument is again based upon the words of people you like to pick out of the mix who say everything is caused by global warming. Scientifically speaking that's not verified by those who study it the most, it is only a possibility and there is no evidence that in the last 100 years that the increase in reported storms is because of anything more than increased maritime traffic having been a witness to storms. Next, what happens next year does not prove or disprove anything, not because of the relvance of a La Nina but because that's not how averages work. Yearly data is all over the place and doesn't even become usable until recorded beyond a decade. This is like your claim that we would all eat crow if the NOAA Climate report showed that one year's Febuary was cooler than last years Febuary (link below). It wasn't, and it was funny to watch you go silent on that one too but it also doesn't prove anyone else's point. For reference here is a valid sources writeup on the relationship between climate change and hurricane/storm activity (Note that it was written recently and at the end of an immensly active storm season yet they still don't say that this year proves anything): Here is the referenced data source for the long term trend on rising worldwide temperatures:
  4. What, it’s the first time we’ve ever had a La Niña? I decided to check in here to see how your stance was standing up that man made global warming coincides with the presence or absence of hurricanes. I see you still won’t listen to the metrics that YOU establish.
  5. Funny enough I didn't. Just clicked through so the pages would show as read.

    That's incredible. Keep us posted. That is some seriously Nazi shit.
  7. Without a doubt. Trump's only salient goal has been to undo and defund and that means the people best capable of identifying and working through the initial stages of this who had done it before and knew what to do were all gone.

    Again, I do not want the executive branch involved in this, they need to run the country. The New York DA's office can deal with Trump and they are equally capable of tapping federal resources where needed.. We will very quickly put our country into a cycle of one administration investigating the last if Biden and his office and cabinet have anything to do with Trump. They absolutely do NOT need to be involved and therefore shouldn't. They DO need to lead the country and should.

    Like what. If it's related to Trump then I'd prefer that our Executive Branch spend their time on better things. Trump wasted enough of our national capital on pissing matches and there are plenty of others to pursue valid legal issues.

    There certainly will be a quantity of legal garbage to undo.

    That could be because you were group tested but if so then they should've told you your group was negative. If you're not familiar with that (and for other readers) it can be cost and time prohibitive to test every single sample so it's more effective to test a group of X samples. The plus side is saving 10's of thousands of sample and man hour units but the downside is that you have to retest the 10-20 people in the positive group. However, that's supposed to solve the issue of month long delays.

    I think Susan Rice is a better choice because of her international experience and I think she could appeal to a wider range of the American demographic. Kamala appeals mostly to coastal states which aren't as important to the election. Fox News is already starting up its "get her" machine by trying to invoke Benghazi.
  13. I realize I'm 5 pages back (Been on Vacation) but this is worth replying to. The entire point is that cops should be able to do their work WITHOUT killing people who pose no threat to them.

    Again, you seem unable to make a principled comment regarding support for a woman who has spent her life procuring underage girls for a sex offender. This should not be difficult.
  15. You have to give people the opportunity to paint an exasperated picture. Sure, it's not even a very strong dog whistle, but you have to look at the guy and say, "Come the fuck on, man...." I know it's ridiculous to point out all the people he SHOULD be wishing well but in regards to women who very obviously spent their life procuring underage girls for a pedophile it's a better move on his part to simply keep his mouth shut. Could you imagine the Fox News shit storm if Obama had said something like that to a woman like that?
  16. I don't. I hope he dies of a painful feverish infection and spends his last days in the same absolute terror he imparted on his own citizens knowing that his body will be left to rot in a shit filled ditch.
  17. I like that I can come to and learn about what BH thinks people are alarmists about. Thanks, never heard of that glacier and after a perusal of valid sources it appears to pose no imminent threat although if it fully melted, which would take a "very long" time it could cause seas to rise anywhere between 3 and 10 feet depending on worldwide oceanic evaporative snowfall over the next century or two. That was a close one, I almost became alarmist!
  18. In fact, this will serve as a good stress test for humanity who will come back stronger and more efficient after this stress has passed.
  19. You think that's the norm? Because if it were then why isn't everyone doing it? Also, do you know that NASA has given SpaceX $3.1 billion dollars?
  20. Are you incapable of reaching your own educated conclusions about someone who spent most of her life enabling a pedophile?
  21. Yup. Exactly what I came here to say. There is ZERO reason for him to do anything but put a giant wall between the two of them and he has all the information at his fingertips to know exactly how guilty she is.
  22. That's the quickest way to give up ownership of technology and development while other countries get ahead of us. Don't ignore the vertical aspect of industries, if you want US companies to excel then you need US money putting them there and not everyone has a Scrooge McDuck bank of money to throw at R&D.
  23. From what you're saying you'll probably buy an EV of that weight/class before many people.
  24. No "competition" should come at the cost of lessening the value of the education that children receive who can't afford public schools and don't win the lottery to attend charter schools (which by all metrics are no better than public schools). So, how do you then make it competitive without deliberately making a charter school better (we can leave private school out of it)? I ask this question because there's no answer to it that doesn't fuck over public schools. A charter school may lend some diversity to the type of programs in schools but if you're trying to get them to compete with public schools you're doing so at the expense of other children. Edit: Also, I don't think property taxes is a good way of paying for school funding. It CAN be used but the reason it IS used is because schools are funded by local property taxes, therefore voters feel like they receive a local benefit. The problem is that in economically depressed areas the schools suck ass because people can't afford the additional taxes that are absorbed between fewer people. Long term residents with no children vote "No" every a tax hike comes up to fund schools.
  25. This line of bullshit is what's used every time teachers ask for more resources or pay, that they're the ones hurting the children.
