Re: Never thought I would see the day that....

Why Newsom banned in person services The Polish trade union, which helped end communism, had to meet in church to avoid surveillance and lockdown. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solidarity_(Polish_trade_union) It's 2021. Church services were banned because quite honestly, they're not necessary anymo...

Should we limit price increases?

Inflation is at a healthy number a small bit above 2% which is a good thing because it was unhealthily below 2% for many years so this averages it out to the 2% goal. The problem is everything I buy is going up way more than inflation. Rent is up 20%. Food is up 15%. Gas is up 15%. Health insurance ...

Can Greed Be Taught? How Can I Learn?

CEOs on average make 204 times as much as their employees! Wow! It's well known that corporate CEOs are the greediest people on the planet. Which explains how they make millions while their employees earn a pittance. The CEO does not generally "own" the company, they are employees who are placed by ...

I'm still in favor of people going to the polls, showing an ID which can be confirmed to determine if they are a registered voter in the precinct where they are voting and then privately casting their vote.
So you want to bring back Jim Crow laws.

Well, we hit the milestone. More Americans have been killed from COVID than the 1918 Spanish Flu, and COVID isn't even over yet!

Calculating Word Worth of Videos

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and they're right. How does one calculate how many words a video is worth? Assuming a video is 30 frames per second, does that make the worth 30k words per second or 1.8 Million words per minute? Or is it more fair to calculate each second as one image, s...

Sep 18 Right Wing Riot in DC?

For weeks CNN has been pumping up support for a extremist right wing riot in DC for this weekend. I didn’t see anything about it in right-wing media, so I assume it’s something CNN was trying to get going. Well today came and went and I didn’t hear anything about it. I can only assume this means the...

That does help the math add up a bit better, but still, any further detail you'd care to provide would be welcome.

Year is 2031. You are 10 years older. Covid is an endemic disease, like flu. Variants every year. Covide shot is like a flu shot, most people just get it, maybe feel bad for 24 hours, and move on. All covid vaccines have long ago moved from experimental stage to general use. So in 2031: Are you get...
