Re: Another angle on the recent events in America and the world

So far, I don't know that a single other soul has looked at the John McWhorter interviews I've posted. It may be because there are more than a dozen threads on the riots now and I haven't kept up with all of them. Or, it may simply be that the videos are too damned long! How about just a few minute...

Re: Illinois Will Be The Poster Case For State Bankruptcy

Illinois keeps kicking the can down the road. I always figured they would get a federal bailout when it gets bad enough. But it's possible that the feds will resist because of moral hazard. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

People I know in Arizona told me that during the whole time of stay at home, if you went into a Home Depot or Lowes, only 1 in 20 people were wearing masks. Including store personnel. And the stores were very busy. So I can imagine that once general society actually opened up, people were not going ...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

So what is going wrong in Arizona?
I see that on a per capita basis, the Native American counties are off the charts.

Guns guns guns

I can't believe how many people I know have run out and bought guns, are getting their carry permits, etc. It's like everyone is doing it. These are people who are basically conservatives, but just never felt the need or desire to own a gun. 70 year old men, 22 year old women, you name it. It's cool...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Couple of comments. Trump is a poor extemporaneous speaker. He has good, maybe excellent problem solving and decision making instincts but can't explain things very well. Think of Mayor Daley the elder. Think of how Daley would have been in the face of a relentless, hostile press, celebrities, media...

Re: I wonder if the 180 degree turn made them dizzy

It's really quite simple. If they place a higher priority on gathering than on safety, it's okay. If you do, you're deplorable.

Re: Lockdowns, where effective and where not

We should be able to see the new outbreaks as a result of the flagrant Memorial Day weekend celebrating.
Are they happening? Serious question.
