Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

On the home front, my daughter in Colorado called me last night and told me that both she and my son, ages 43 and 45 had both gotten Covid. Neither got tested but based on the symptoms they were describing, along with the fact another family member had tested positive and exposed others, it sure so...

Re: Jordan Peterson's Influence On My Life

Let's pull this thread back to Smith just being a guy that can look himself in the mirror in the morning and say "Man! I look good!" That really is all that it's about. How do you wake up in the morning happy with your life? Emerson, Whitman, Jordan, Newton? A gal that gives you a wink? A horse tha...

Re: Trump's Mt. Rushmore speech

What do you guys think of the announcement to create a new national park with statues of American heroes? I love it, for the same reason as technovelist. Ditto. It would be nice if something like this could/would give the violence lovers and those who are giving them a free pass some self-respect, ...

Re: Finally someone pushes back!

I did not fact check the following. Regardless, it is pretty funny and exposes the hypocrisy of the virtue signalers. ........ This is an e-mail sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington Redskins. Dear Mr. Page: I agree wit...

Re: Jordan Peterson's Influence On My Life

I don't think there's any greater way to say "you matter; you can do things" than to say that it is your duty to protect and defend the women and children in your life, even to the point of your own death. That's an interesting way of looking at it, Xan, but it's implicit in that line of thinking t...

Re: Trump's Phone Calls w/ Foreign Leaders

Here's what would make me vote Democratic instead of for Trump: A new candidate in place of Biden who is a centrist/moderate Democrat. That person explicitly repudiates most of the extreme Democratic positions on immigration, green new deal, BLM/reduced policing The person makes a statement that ra...

Re: Trump's Phone Calls w/ Foreign Leaders

Tech, is there anything Trump could do or not do in the next four months that could get you to not vote for him? Not saying you’d vote for Biden, but just sit out? I'm obviously not Tech, but to answer your question, I would not vote for Trump if I found out that he had died. ;) (Sorry, just trying...

Re: Should I self-identify as a woman and join this group?

Suggest you would get more creds with this POWER group if you self-identify as a LGBTQXYZRETXXXX person of non-white gender fluidness (current gender formerly known as woman) who never set foot in the country formerly known as America and whose mantra is 'free to be me and screw thee if you disagree...

Re: Environmentalist Apologizes for Climate Scare

Sales pitch for a book, or a ‘come to Jesus’ confession? My education tells the latter (but with a small dose of healthy skepticism).

Re: An outsiders perspective of the politcal turmoil

I'll chime in here....I also have suspected that masks are largely worthless, and there is certainly zero evidence in support of them. We had to take an online course in how to don and doff PPE at the beginning of the pandemic. It is not at all easy to get it right and there is a good reason why tr...
