Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

General moral decline of country is a personal problem for people who think women shouldn't vote and aren't allowed to have a penis. Good news! Everyone is now allowed to have a penis--and at taxpayer expense. I don’t have a problem with this. Only 50% of the population even pays any income tax. Th...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

China is a personal issue for people who are too lazy to learn to code. AntiFa violence is a personal issue for people who are nazis and are worried about being targeted by them. High taxes and socialism are a personal issue for people who have been able to avoid paying their fair share for years. L...

Basketball has been a historically African American sport and as a white person, I get disgusted when I see other whites cu...

Re: COVID Cases Sharply Declining: Why This Is Worst Case Scenario

Just a guess from an uneducated source but if Covid disproportionately affects African Americans as well as other dark-skinned people more than Caucasians it might have much less do to with racism than Vitamin D. Then again, I'm not a politician so what do I know? Vitamin D is a likely factor, but ...

Saying "i know a guy on the internet who goes by the handle KingKongAlBundy lost his great aunt from Covid" isn't really evidence of a pandemic.
I know 500,000 Americans who died of Covid. They were all my brothers or sisters. Dead.

I believe that Harry (selfishly) realized that his life would be better in the long term if societal issues were largely addressed. And that much more so if done in a non-coercive manner. Who said anything about coercion? Close the businesses for their own good. If everyone is dead then the busines...

Re: COVID Cases Sharply Declining: Why This Is Worst Case Scenario

Just out of curiosity, do you feel (what you call) collectivist tendencies are ever appropriate? For example, there were a lot of similar slogans after 9/11, and FDR famously promoted the same after the Great Depression. The WWII "we are in this together" was so extensive in popular culture that th...

Re: Minimum Living Wage

Back to single, unskilled workers, say a busboy in a Chicago restaurant. Making federal min wage of $7.25/hr. $15,080 gross per year. Is that livable in Chicago? With food, rent, utilities, phone, and possibly car expenses? Would seem to be cutting it close. I live frugally, I am pretty sure I coul...

Re: Minimum Living Wage

But do you have an answer that combines smaller government, less welfare and a higher standard of living for those at the bottom who can't make ends meet for their families? How about, don't have a family until you can afford it? Mr Levvy, you have hit on the point of underpaying the working class....

If businesses can't afford to pay their employees a living wage then those businesses do not serve a societal function except to serve the rent-seeking libertarian modernday slavemaster who as a small business owner is making record profits in 2021 and still paying their workers so poorly that they ...

Personally I'm never going without a mask ever again, indoors and out. I can't have it on my conscious if I unknowingly spread a deadly disease, disproportionately to poor minorities who serve the function as essential workers for less than poverty wages. The biggest hurdle has been showering with a...

Re: Somalian IQ is 68

The average IQ of China, sample size of the 200,000 Chinese Citizens specifically authorized to take the IQ test by Ministry of Education, is 193. This only further proves smart people choose socialism. Especially when compared to all of the Libertarian African countries with sub-70 IQs using Atlas ...

Re: COVID Cases Sharply Declining: Why This Is Worst Case Scenario

In my experience, masks do seem to provide some level of protection. Since March of last year, no one in my immediate family has gotten any kind of cold like illness. Sure, some can be attributed to not being in school. But for me and my wife, life has been pretty normal -- I go to work every day, ...

Personally, I don’t understand the concern with when we can stop wearing masks and being responsible. Are the same maskless people clamoring for self-driving cars so they can stop wearing seatbelts? How about this. We can stop wearing masks when we get 90% vaccination rates and $15/hr minimum wage. ...

The problem is the young would go maskless and spew large viral loads on others , especially the older . With 43% of positives asymptomatic that is a big problem .
