Re: The cars we love/hate & the cars we may buy.

Is it in bad taste to refer to things like this as the Brazilification of the USA?

Maybe it's less offensive if we just call it the shithole-country-ification of the USA.

Re: "What is your political orientation" Poll

The guy's making $25M a year, and he wants us poor schmucks to feel sorry for him? Does he feel sorry for me that I will never be able to afford a yacht? At some point, people just have to grow up and decide that they don't care what anyone thinks about them and that they are going to work hard and ...

Re: "What is your political orientation" Poll

The founding fathers and stock of this country were white. People automatically favor other people who look like themselves, starting first with their own family members and then radiating outward from there. So yes white people treat each other better than they treat darker people. If you go to Afr...

Re: My Wife’s Jewelry Is Getting Really Expensive!

I was talking to my 84-year-old mother last night. She said that when she was in college, she used to clean houses at $1 per hour to make money. We started wondering how much $1 back then is worth today. We calculated that at an average inflation rate of 3%, $1 in the 1950s should be worth about $8 ...

Abolish ICE

Abolish DHS

That's going to end well. We already don't have enough jobs for our low-skilled workers. Let's just let a whole bunch more into our country. What could go wrong?

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

A good Tom Woods podcast recently discussed the problems with Abe Lincoln. The historian being interviewed said that the states prior to the Civil War made up a republic. Whereas the states after the civil war are a "union" essentially in the same sense as the Soviet Union was a union, i.e. under co...

I like the sound of that! Very nice, congratulations. I would hope to be there one day, but probably not. That's okay, I can admire the view from here.

Re: Dr. Fauci today!

This guy says that Fauci is lying and appears to me to make some good points: https://www.unz.com/mwhitney/looks-like-sweden-was-right-after-all/ Personally I don't know who to believe any longer. Maybe Fauci is right. Maybe he is wrong and lying, or wrong and not lying but just very cautious. Altho...

Re: George Floyd

That's fine, that's fine. The whole purpose of the thought experiment was to identify persons who have been resistant and require higher levels of social programming. Your results have been noted and will be passed for action to the proper department. Let there be no ill will between us. We do not ...

Re: George Floyd

It's called being holier than thou. Very common among people who aspire to be pastors. Also very common among SJWs. This guy was a completely nice guy. Everyone loved him.
