This is what I’ve been saying about Trump. His personal style can be pretty abrasive, and his motives might be self-aggrandizing or shallow, but his ability and purpose is to do those things which cause the greatest benefit for the citizens of the USA. We haven’t had a POTUS with that goal in my lifetime. He’s the first, and he’s been able to get a surprising amount done with a hostile government and media arrayed against him. His headwinds were incredible, but he keeps tacking back and forth and keeps making progress against the Leftist Storm.

I don't care much about conservatism per se, but I do think traditional values became traditional exactly because they helped us survive into the next generation. Pretty much everything the current identity-politics left promotes is fatal to humanity in the long run: feminism, homosexuality, Islam, relentless division by race, promotion of grievance studies, open borders.

Trump's presidency is a massive win for freedom from an ever-more-oppressive thought police. It gives me hope that the left will not actually succeed in killing off humanity "for the sake of the planet".

This is easy to parse:
As car manufacturers raise their prices higher and higher, more people decide to buy cheaper models or just keep driving their older cars longer. This leads to massive unsold inventory.
This is not great for the car companies, so they relax their credit standards for losers and deadbeats, offering them a chance at a loan on an overpriced vehicle. While some, perhaps even most of these people will pay the loans off, as a group they are not a good credit risk. So they default.

And two years later they’re given another loan by the car companies who just need to sell their inventory!

It’s a death spiral.

I will note that Patrick has evolved politically partially as a result of the unreasonableness of the left.

@CovfefeButDeadly Yes, I think you're right about that. I feel driven away from the left. Like Reagan said, I didn't leave them, they left me. I started out from an exclusively Democratic family, but that was all about labor. My immigrant ancestors all just wanted a better deal for themselves as farmers or working people. It was just about wages vs profits for owners. Nothing about race, gender, gays. Both parties were about the same with respect to those issues.

But now the Democrats have substituted race, gender, and gays for the labor issue. They not only gave up the fight, they actively betray labor daily by supporting the biggest banks, globalization of manufacturing, and importing literally millions of illegals to keep wages down at the low end.

I don't think I'm overreacting. The Democratic Party has become a basket of deplorables joined only by their grievances. I wish they would get back to issues that really matter.

Personally, I feel frustrated that the popular obsession with CO2 distracts from more important forms of pollution.


This is why I hate the phony AGW crowd. Pollution and resource depletion are real and a current threats best handled by letting population stabilize to a level sustainable by renewables, and curtail importing products from high polluters like China and India. The AGW solution is always some form of vote Democrat.

Horrible bullshit article. NYT journalists show yet again that they should stick to transgendereds, 234221 genders, and race issues. In science, they are clueless and should remove carbon from the atmosphere by not writing anything. Or they should hire someone who has a degree in chemistry and engineering, as opposed to gender or ethnic studies.

Two sentences are the key to understanding this bullshit:

(1) The machines [that remove CO2] themselves require a significant amount of energy.
(2) The company is not turning a profit.

For tens of years companies capture CO2 in cement production plants (the reaction in question is CaCO3 → CaO + CO2), where it is economical to capture and sell the product. Now we have the same product obtained in a more expensive and more energy-consuming way. How is this good in any way, shape, or form?

Haha he don’t give a fuck! Now Democrats are going to have to be in the position of either defending their colleague despite her horrible behavior, or agreeing with ORANGEMANBAD!!!!

Classic Trump!

The real story is that Yahoo made up this “story” by gathering stupid and silly tweets from stupid and angry people on Twitter and mashed them into a narrative about white privilege.
You will be literally dumber and less informed by reading this sort of “news.”
Which may just be the point.

Reading some of the comments on this article, I don’t think many people were fooled. The grand grand majority were disgusted by Yahoo and their toxic point of view!

Whatever it is, I like it. She's the best GOP spokesperson since Pelosi.

I am consistently amazed at the disregard for free speech in the UK.

The Nazi pug incident was just one of many where speech that would be protected in the US is actually forbidden over there.

Goran_K says
Her chief advisor, Saikat Chakrabarti, has been calling out all kind of DNC powerhouses like Pelosi, Schumer, etc and forcing them to defend themselves as “radical conservatives within the Democratic Party” for not supporting 70% taxes on millionaires, getting rid of planes and building train tracks to Hawaii.

...and Pelosi's guy got Grubered for telling insurance companies behind closed doors not to worry at all about the 'Medicare-For-All thing'. Someone got a hold of his slide show deck and gave it to the Intercept even.

Goran_K says
This fracturing of the Democrat party is exactly what the rest of the sane world needs to keep the DNC from the Oval Office.

In Game of Thrones terms, AOC is the Sparrow to all the crooked Cersei Lannisters in the Dem party who are nothing but globalist whores.

Dude...think of it! The high drama that is going to go down with this civil war will make Trump look like a Saint even on his worse Tweet Day by comparison! This is going to be awesome to watch! Fuckin' A-level Schadenfreude!

Yup, the Dems are being burned by their own lunatic fringe. Ocasio For President, Yay. Hey, I'll even contribute money to that.

Occasional cortex has destroyed 25,000 direct jobs in New York and at least another 25,000 in support jobs from Amazons presence in the state.

50,000 jobs destroyed by OCA and not even 1 year in.

De Blasio and Cuomo are such retards. Turn away 25,000 well paying jobs because they won't agree to a per head luxury tax.

This is also the reason why high tax policies are retarded. Wealth can flee at a moments notice, the world is very big.

What's funny is many people from SFBA and Seattle bought real estate (some of them sight unseen) in the vicinity of the future AMZN HQ there. Yuuuuuge profit!

Collectively they're like the little twerp kid who couldn't play as well as the rest, lost many games and said "I'm taking my ball home!" while tears stream from his nerdy twerp eyes.

Well, HeyYou's mom did pay for that ball.....

There are the clawbacks, too, because Social Security becomes 50 percent, then 85 percent taxable at certain income thresholds. If you had the common sense and restraint to garner your own retirement savings, SS punishes you with higher taxes.

Better, but CNN still desperate to make the racism accusation seem possible. Read the article. They never mention the elder as the known liar he is, and they quote NAACP leaders who refuse to give up their narrative.

Fake news, again. Sigh.

If we pull all the co2 out of the air what's going to feed the plants? If we don't feed the plants what is going to make oxygen?

You have to think things through.

What ignoramus still thinks co2 will melt all the ice and flood Manhattan?
