One leftists woman complained:

"It’s the same few names screaming for anyone who is not a white, heterosexual, Republican to be fired, arrested, or executed. The bigotry on this page is absolutely sickening."

Umm, nobody said anything about white, Republican, male and heterosexual being a requirement for teachers, but is the school psychologist advocating for gender blockers or telling 11 years old that they're not really a boy if they have a penis?

“Just once, I’d love to see a Republican candidate stand up in a primary and say, ‘I am a moderate, establishment squish. I stand for absolutely nothing.’ It would be refreshingly honest at least. But nobody says that,” Cruz said during a campaign event for Pennsylvania Senate GOP candidate David McCormick this week. Trump has endorsed McCormick’s rival in the primary race, Mehmet Oz.
“And by the way, they all pledge their love for Donald Trump,” he continued. “‘I love Donald Trump,’ ‘No, no. I love Donald Trump more.’ ‘No, no, no. I have Donald Trump tattooed on my rear end.’”

The Woke stuff is only accelerating this trend, and with decent paying jobs out there without a degree requirement, college is looking like a sucker's bet.

Complaint against Abbott and the factory was made in October of 21, FDA/CDC didn't get around to looking into it until February, they shut the plant down, Abbott did a review and cleanup and demonstrated that the complaints were not the fault of Abbott baby formula, The FDA/Administration, knew there were going to be shortages because Abbott supplies the majority of baby formula for the US, The FDA is slow walking clearing the plant.

Meanwhile unlimited formula for illegal aliens and for Americans?

What annoys me is that you can no longer buy pipe tobacco -- the real leaf, not those silly "cigars" -- at the convenience store or drugstore or grocery. I think I picked up the last pouch-in-a-box of Carter Hall in America at my grocery last year. There's not the huge market any more, I guess, and you can still get the classics like CH and Sir Walter Raleigh online; and pipe shops carry all sorts of tobacco. But it's sad when you'd discovered that you love these old classics, but you can't pick up a pouch anywhere.

Sooooo....I am making and installing 74 solid wood plinth blocks, lovingly cut from 2x4, and properly beveled to follow the diminishing thickness of the casing as it nears the edge of the door opening.

It is practically socialized right now. Fascism is the Way To Go:

Through the power of passive investing, the "private sector" underwrites the operations and "owns" the business. The administrators of the operation are basically puppets of the regulators so government is indeed fully in charge.

When things go wrong, the politicians can always blame "capitalism", and lawyers can sue the business. In the meantime, there is a ton of lobbying money and sinecures as long as there is a facade of a free market.

So far they have come up to the Russian border, but have not crossed it. Some are thinking that Putin is going to unilaterally annex the occupied areas of Ukraine and then threaten to use nuclear weapons to prevent any attempt to retake them.

Russian sources today report that they are conducting an "orderly withdrawal" from the Kharkiv region (meaning that all remaining units are fleeing rapidly) The area around Izyum is going to be the next focus of operations for both sides.

Since Abbott pledged to bus migrants to Washington on April 6, a total of 35 buses have arrived in the nation's capital in response to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) announcement that Title 42 would end May 23, according to the press release.

From what I hear about the crowding and traffic there, that's about as fast as one can go!

I wasn't driving yet when the 55-mph limit was instituted -- so I don't recall. It was being enforced (as in tickets) when I began driving, and my Ford Maverick I think had a little square around the "55" mark on the speedometer. Or maybe that was other cars I rode in then. As a new driver, I thought 55 was pretty fast. When I started driving the courier van 2 years later, I did 70 wherever I could on the interstate, and realized how much quicker you could get somewhere (when the company paid for the gas, of course).

with constant CO2 emissions from many sources over the eons, why hasn't the earth's CO2 levels changed much? Because sea life uses CO2 to create calcium carbonate, CaCO3, for their structure, which then falls to the bottom. This eventually becomes limestone, of which there are many thousands of feet of deposits all around the world.

It's almost like the planet was built with a self-regulating C02 control system that keeps everything in balance.

Serbia has also done away with ALL Rona regulations: free living, free entry, no masks, no shots, no nothing. It's OVER.
This has led to Belgrade turning into The Hot Spot, and I have never seen so many people here, it's incredible. The biggest problem businesses have here is trying to keep up with the traffic and getting enough staff to cope with the Rona Tourism.

293 I meant to say 85MPH... back in the late 70's and early 80's when there was both a push for the metric system and a push for a national 55MPH speed limit many cars had speedometers that only went up to 85.

The famed DeLorean of Back to the Future speedo went up to 85MPH too.

As I mentioned, I had the Z-28's speedo pegged many a time so I've no idea how fast I was really going. The only ticket I ever got in it was for a missing front license plate shortly after buying it. There was no bracket to mount it on so it was on the dash. Fucking VA state police Nazi gave me a rash of shit about it. And a ticket.

I don't think you appreciate how incredibly complex the energy industry is and how entangled are investments and property rights.

For example, oil severance taxes play a very large role in the State government's income. Mineral rights and royalties from leases on private property. The property taxes on the land I sit on are paid directly by the oil that is being pumped around me. The lease arrangements with the original property owners is often tied up as collateral for loans or has been factored in as revenue streams to support other operations.

That is just the financial side. Nationalizing would collapse the banking industry due to the huge amount of money involved with every aspect of oil production and distribution.
