  1. No. Why would they be? They were not ignored, unless I missed something. People should also be able to disagree with that criticism. The Netflix CEO backed the show at first, then issued an apology for backing it. We will see if it survives or if he caves in. It should be based on how the show does and whether that is how he wants to do business. Netflix puts out lots of controversial shows, that both sides have protested.
  2. My guess is you think these threats come from domestic terrorists. The ask was way overboard and the DOJ should have told them so. The FBI could respond to a specific case referred from local law enforcement. I suspect the apology only came out because they realized what a political screw up it was.
  3. Good point, but we also can't have people just coming over the border, especially during a pandemic.
  4. Not a definition but an example. Dave Chappelle and his "Closer" show on Netflix are under fire. Employees of Netflix (and others) were offended by his routine and wanted his show taken off the air. I read this show earned 95% approval from the audience on Rotten Tomatoes, but if a few are offended they want it cancelled. How about they don't watch it and criticize it, but why cancel it? Below is a video from Bill Maher's show discussing this topic. https://youtu.be/WAUUgxQPwM0
  5. I finally saw a front and center article on climate change. It caught my eye because the headline said Florida residents are tearing down trees to fight climate change. I thought that was strange. I guess palm trees are not as good as other trees. https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/23/weather/weather-trees-adapt-climate-change/index.html
  6. It's not safe to them or people around our border. We need a way to have them migrate safely and orderly.
  7. Yes they did. And it will play out at the ballot box. If this is true, I hope the find the person and prosecute. Wouldn't it be up to local law enforcement first?
  8. Did the NSBA realize their rhetoric was out of line? I am guessing the original DOJ request will cost some elections. The DOJ made a mistake taking this on. Are they backing off now? https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/oct/23/nsba-apologizes-letter-linking-rowdy-school-board-/ “On behalf of NSBA, we regret and apologize for the letter,” said the NSBA memo. “There was no justification for some of the language included in the letter. We should have had a better process in place to allow for consultation on a communication of this significance. We apologize also for the strain and stress this situation has caused you and your organizations.”
  9. That’s because Manchin and Sinema won’t let him spend any money. Just kidding.
  10. A quick google search showed mostly conservative news outlets running with this story. At least the top ten hits. NIH admits gain of function research in Wuhan. maybe this should go in media bias. Maybe more outlets will show up later or it’s not considered relevant by some outlets and overly reported on by others. https://www.yahoo.com/now/nih-admits-funding-gain-function-125103852.html
  11. I couldn’t find the CNN video I watched. I think it was Setzer’s show. I did find this article. Sorry if it is paywalled. I was able to read it. All just theories at this point. 1) finding other ways to make money. 2) Not getting assistance as a privileged group. 3) Feeling that college is more expensive than it is worth. 4) Giving up/lost 5) a sharp increase during the pandemic due to #4 or needing to provide for family. https://www.wsj.com/articles/college-university-fall-higher-education-men-women-enrollment-admissions-back-to-school-11630948233
  12. Can I ask what school? I have heard only a couple complaints from kids, so far, but many of the kids I know in college are liberal or don’t care. The conservative kids went to private or small state colleges. The two complaints came from larger universities. CU and CSU.
  13. This topic really touched a nerve. Do you feel conservatives groups, students, and speakers have a voice at the larger coastal/urban flagship schools? People seem to be separating by ideology, religion, identity, even intentionally separated by race in dormitories at some universities. That seems like a bad direction to be headed. What do you think has caused the large decline in male (sorry if this is the wrong term) enrollment at universities in the last 1/2 decade? I just learned about this recently from a video on CNN. The guest was concerned about the long term consequences for our society. I was shocked.
  14. I Don’t remember liberal indoctrination when I went to college in the prior century. They were also both technical degrees. Although some of my more enjoyable classes were in the liberal arts.
  15. CNN, FOX, Times, The Posts, WSJ, other feeds I guess. Trump dominated CNN for 4 years, and the pandemic. It’s more likely I am just reading other articles. Can’t read everything.
  16. Yes. Two degrees, but it was a long time ago. This made me laugh. Thanks.
  17. First SW Airlines and now In n Out Burger. I know so many Californians that are nuts over In-n-Out I can only imagine how upset they will be if the government shuts them down. https://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2021/10/19/covid-in-n-out-burger-fight-san-francisco-health-officials-vax-protocols/ “We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant associates to segregate customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason,” the statement read. “We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business. This is clear governmental overreach and is intrusive, improper, and offensive.”
  18. There is a reporter from NPR...can’t remember her name...but I think she is or was a White House correspondent. I consider her left bias, and out of the mainstream. ...But that is just one reporter. Is NPR only radio? I never see much sourced from them. Is FOX #1? They claim to beat CNN and MSNBC, but I consider both of those liberal outlets. If you combined their ratings does FOX still win? Plus what about the audiences of ABC, CBS and NBC? Not sure about this Newsmax outlet, but I doubt they have much audience to contribute.
  19. Liberal. Haven’t heard much about climate change lately. Mask usage was all over the map and in some cases nonsensical, but still encouraged. It’s not that the media gets everything wrong, but they are still bias not only in how they report, but also what choose to report on. If a story is important enough I will read it from a liberal source and a conservative one. The difference is noticeable.
  20. My memory only goes back a few years. It is true that oil prices may not have had anything to do with Trump policies, but I think OPEC tried to produce a ton of oil to lower the prices and kill fracking. Not for environmental reasons either. Just wanted to burry the competition. my electric bill jumped a lot when the COOP got hit because of regulations on their new coal plant a couple administrations ago. However, it actually may have been more to do with losing their cooperative government subsidies put in by Reagan. I am ok with that. Make them compete.
  21. Conservatives college students exist? I suggest instead of protesting just don’t show up if you will be offended or better yet go politely listen to an alternative viewpoint.
  22. This is a good example. I would add that when politicians ignore their own mandates it adds fuel for those who do not want to follow them. I do not know much about Newsmax except I heard a person once say that FOXs is now liberal so they turned to Newsmax. If there was a news organization out there the actually investigated a story, backed it up with credible (not anonymous) witnesses and just presented the facts without opinion or bias, they would be the #1 on TV and it wouldn’t be close. Real journalism is on life support, and the ideas presented in this opinion piece aren’t going to help.
  23. if I remember correctly it was just a couple years ago we all enjoyed cheap energy and energy independence. This article seems to blame Manchin for the higher energy prices in his home state. I suspect the residents think otherwise. If we can be energy independent using alternative energy sources and get it cheaper, sign me up. https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/19/politics/west-virginia-coal-rates-manchin-climate/index.html
  24. I suspect the students that protested this professor are progressive Democrats. Doesn’t the cancel culture environment in our universities come from the liberal progressives? That is my perception.
