  1. Can we stop acting like Opinion anchors ourselves and not speak in hyperbole? It's utter nonsense to say Tucker isn't any worse than any CNN/MSNBC/FOX anchor. He and Hannity are the worst of the worst. Picking Lemon is a lot different than saying they're all like Tucker.
  2. I think it's a mix, like the flat earther thing. Now chem trails is more of a left thing I think. That politics made people decide not to get a vaccine is scary. A cousin of my mom had 2 siblings die to polio and she won't get it - and obviously that means she is in the age group that is vulnerable.
  3. Haven't watched it yet but American Vandal looks good. It's a mockumentary (or mock true crime) about a high schooler wrongly(?) accused of drawing penises on faculty cars.
  4. Unfortunately the longer people hold out the more likely it starts to negatively impact people who are vaccinated.
  5. Please don't do your own s#!tty internet research. That's a huge part of the problem right now, and not just with Covid.
  6. I don't think it will happen within the next 8 years. I can see it happening if he beats Biden in 2024 and refuses to leave in 2029. But he'd probably win and stay in power until he dies at the age of 86 or whatever.
  7. Some of them are just doing it to get votes, but the GOP leaders and candidates are prepping their base so they'll be ok with an authoritarian takeover. If it happens they will simply say "The Democrats got into the habit of stealing elections so something had to be done to stop them and stop communism. If it hadn't been us they would've done it first" and bam Republican voters fall in line.
  8. Way more people should be disgusted that a f#&%ing moron like this can get elected.
  9. When you put it that way it sounds like a terrible idea for me, but I think there are better ways to put it... E.g. the health care costs for pregnant women could be paid for by the rest of the population. If not through medicare for all then through some sort of specific to child birth program. I would think both the Democrats and Republicans could get behind this. Instead of fighting abortion the Republicans could incentivize not taking that option. I'm guessing part of the problem is having a lot of jobs that are used to support a top heavy population, so when the bo
  10. We actually slowed down not only manual labor but also skilled labor from entering the country during the past 4 years. We need both.
  11. The steel industry is lobbying him and he may not be smart enough to see the purchasers'/customers' loss as more important.
  12. Ya, I dunno wtf he is doing. It was a bad idea and still is.
  13. You maybe read too much from me linking it, and it doesn't show things are good. Here is a closer view of the past 5 years which you can get if you go to the website. This shows we are not back on the pace we were on yet, and we have been way off the pace for more than a year now including the huge dip. Even when/if we get back to 7500 tonnes per month, we need to do that for months and months and months to make up for the time of low production.
  14. Here is an interesting chart that shows U.S. steel production (in thousand tonnes): https://tradingeconomics.com/united-states/steel-production
  15. Yes CNN at the least leans left but your post doesn’t show that. I believe the latter is Red’s point. It can be evidence for it but logically does not show it. Really it only takes one far biased network to push people on the other side to a different network. Fox News is objectively far more biased than CNN. Almost no Democrat is going to choose that and almost all Republicans who watch news channels seem to, so that can cause the viewership trends you are seeing even if (hypothetically) CNN was completely neutral. @nic Maddow isn’t on CNN.
  16. I thought he was calling him a dickce and I don't know what that means.
  17. I don't think you know what "exact words" means.
  18. No, they are overqualified. Being taxi drivers and doing construction of obsolete structures with no immediate danger nearby is beneath them. There is no reason to use the national guard on the border when we have a border patrol. It's overkill and it's stupid.
  19. The national guard is way over qualified to be providing the services mentioned. He is talking about using the national guard. Not about having Border Patrol.
  20. They aren't though. We keep adding more border agents and the apprehensions per agent decreases. We definitely do not need the national guard there, nor do we need more border agents. And we are going to face worse and worse labor shortages. We need more immigrants, not less. We should reduce the the # of agents and increase the maximum number of legal immigrants we accept.
  21. Can we, including people on HB, stop acting like it's an apples to apples comparison between the DNC and GOP?
  22. Regardless, none of them are needed.
  23. Deadwood has gotten lame for other reasons already but now they have dumbass pro Trump tshirts in basically every f#&%ing store window.
  24. Ya, I didn’t really notice the CPAC part so i thought it was “pro” merchandise.
