Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

Didn't realize the theory of relativity was politically unpalatable to the Right. It does get taught in schools, but never draws any ire the way evolution does. Weird how they're all up in arms about that but so thoroughly accepting of quantum theory they're wiling to do all kinds of gymnastics to r...

Re: The Russia Investigations and other Trump-related cases

My first thought, upon learning today that the Dept. of Justice in the Trump administration had secretly obtained subpoenas to obtain the phone records of members of Congress who had been critical of Trump, was that the very same DOJ argued in court that due to the separation of powers, Congress do...

Re: 2022 U.S. Congressional Elections

In Texas mayoral elections today, Republicans seem to have done somewhat better than expected, retaining control over Fort Worth (which is either the largest or second largest U.S. city with a Republican mayor: Jacksonville, Florida is about the same size), and flipping the mid-sized city of McAlle...

Re: The challenges ahead (Biden's America)

Even now, there are some web-based email services we can't access from the company network, but the cat videos, reddit, PubMed, Google Scholar, and online shopping are back. And the Hall of Fire, let us not forget. True. :oops: el, I have no idea. It was grossly inconvenient when the measures dropp...

Re: The challenges ahead (Biden's America)

You know what's really weird about the TX GOP's behavior? They did really well in the 2020 election. If there was rampant fraud in TX that tipped the 2020 elections in TX and that rampant fraud must now be countered with these measures, what does it say about the legitimacy of those who won TX 2020 ...

Israel inches closer to government without Netanyahu Wow. I've been feeling rather bad for the Israeli people. They've clearly been tryi...

Re: Why the hate on Russia?

So Disney+ doesn't even exist in Russia. Maybe it's an attempt to whip up a scapegoating frenzy of some kind? I have a feeling that all this is going to accomplish is a segment of the Russian population will now want to see the film come hell or highwater and there will be pirate copies everywhere.

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

So, having done signature verification in Colorado and thus been on the frontlines of detecting voter fraud in my state, my curiousity was piqued. From the article: Suzanne Morphew, 49, who shared two daughters with her husband, disappeared on May 10, 2020, near the small mountain town of Salida, in...

Re: Black Lives Don't Matter... As Black Lives?

I find the whole issue of racial identification troubling. It appears the only "pure" race is white, as any person with a non-white grandparent is automatically BAME, or some other umbrella term. How can this be right? It is chillingly similar to the "one drop" determination of ...

No, actually, it's more a comment on my suspicions regarding your motivations. And you didn't answer my question, BTW. It wasn't rhetorical. Why is this worth anyone's time and why did you take such a bass-ackwards approach to opening the topic in the first place?

To me, they taste of death. Those and kale are the only leafy greens I have compatibility issues with. I'm not sure what kale does that collards can't. They've got similar cooking times so I just substitute.
