Re: Where would you move?

I live in one of those North Texas Suburbs. People are moving here in droves but personally I don’t see the attraction. The weather is terrible. It is 10pm as I write this and the temp is 92 with a “feels like” of 100. The “feels like” during the day is 111 and that will last until October. North T...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Just got back from Florida, with parts of Fla and Tx requiring masks now.

This is why I seem to be getting hypoxia while wearing a mask.

Re: John Nolte on CHAZ

He's assuming that CHAZ is sustainable. I think it's a pretty safe assumption that the rosy picture painted in the press is not the reality. As far as I can tell reading between the lines, the place is totally dependent on a combination of handouts and raiding existing supplies and businesses. That...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

I'm saying that the GOP defending the Confederate legacy is strangely ironic but more importantly divisive and bad policy. If you want to erect a Confederate statue on your front lawn go ahead...I don't see how anyone can justify naming a high school after Robert e Lee. Not only statues...Trump jus...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

I think at the root of all of this is that many people don't want to live in a truly 'diverse' society.. I understand that. I know that a great deal of cultural diversity can create tension. But let's be scientific about this and discuss our honest beliefs about the functionality of the American me...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

Going by memory (most recent readings) and no research...this is what I currently believe (subject to change by any countervailing facts and logic).. 1) Why the South fought the Civil War 100% Slavery At the time cotton was one of the largest and most lucrative industries in the world. It only viab...

What would happen if Trump read that letter as his sole campaign speech and then dropped the mic at every rally between now and November?
My guess he would be called Racist,Homophobic, White Privileged etc. the usual. by the Left wing Press.

Re: Every knee shall bow, every tongue confess

I can't find the link but I read an article the other day about how racism has become the new religion in America. The photo I posted at the start of this thread with Dems kneeling in congress under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi just confirms what that article was saying. And then there was the re...

Re: Privatizing the legal system

But it is true that recent real-world experience is limited. That means we have to explore these possibilities mostly by one of two means: 1. Logical arguments about how they could play out; and 2. Fictional depictions of free societies. "For a New Liberty" is an example of the first of these, whil...
