    Trump issues statement claiming he won 2020 election, blames, Voter Fraud, Pence, Cheney, and McConnell for loss

    I have no clue who would have won if every legal vote was counted. Americans are so arrogant to think voter fraud happens everywhere but here. Besides, after the Russia hoax I can’t blame Trump for being skeptical.

    Derek Chauvin verdict

    The real beef should be that this shouldn’t be a national story in the first place. None of us should have ever known that this happened and the only reason we do is that a narrative is being pushed.

    Derek Chauvin verdict

    I haven’t studied stand your ground. Does it allow you to move forward and be the aggressor once you have been threatened?

    Derek Chauvin verdict

    I’m sure the investigation will determine whether others there committed minor crimes. But as far as the girl, she might have initially been the victim but clearly she turned perpetrator at some point and tried to murder another person. Watching the videos tells us that aspect of it.

    Derek Chauvin verdict

    People say things they don’t believe all the time to push their agenda.

    Derek Chauvin verdict

    Man that cop is a hero. I hope he gets treated as such.

    Derek Chauvin verdict

    More info is needed to determine what exactly?

    Derek Chauvin verdict

    Nobody really thinks we have a police problem.

    Derek Chauvin verdict

    Seems like a fast verdict. I would think that’s not good for Chauvin.

    Covid-19

    You keep saying stuff like this but we don’t know what will happen even with a near 100% vaccination rate. I don’t think promising something that quite possibly can’t be delivered is the way to get skeptics to do something. I feel like this would just make those types of people dig their heels...

    NCAA threatens pulling Women's College World Series in OKC over Transgender athletes bill

    If I was a fan of women’s sports I don’t think the numbers would be the concern. I think it’s more about relative dominance. Like say if the next Marion Jones, Serena Williams, Annika Sorenstam, Ronda Rousey, etcetera of their relative sport was trans. In that case that sport is effectively...

    NCAA threatens pulling Women's College World Series in OKC over Transgender athletes bill

    I don’t really have a dog in the fight because I don’t watch nor really care about women’s sports. It’s an interesting topic to discuss but at the end of the day destroying women’s sports doesn’t really bother me. But as far as I can tell you guys sound like you are both pro women’s sports and...

    Covid-19

    I think the problem in your “realville” is you assume that if X happens, it will automatically result in Y. I think that’s fine from a common sense perspective but that ignores who and what are the decision makers. Common sense doesn’t necessarily apply when we are already hearing that many of...

    Covid-19

    You seem to be predicting the future on a lot of things by saying for example California “will” return to this or that. To me these are the things that are still unknown and I’m not ready to make those kind of predictions and state them as high likelihoods to people on the fence. That’s all...

    NCAA threatens pulling Women's College World Series in OKC over Transgender athletes bill

    It seems like the only real reason to have created organized women’s sports was so that biological women wouldn’t have to compete against biological men. If that’s going to be undone I think you might as well scrap men’s & women’s sports and just have competitions or teams without gender...

    Covid-19

    Oh there’s certainly nothing wrong with touting the things that are known to come with getting the vaccine. I’m talking about promising the unknowns such as no more masks or a general return to normalcy. I think those are the things most people crave and I don’t see any signs that those things...

    I don’t know that smoking anything can be considered “healthy”. AFAIK even smoking pot is bad for your respiratory system.

    Covid-19

    I feel like trying to bribe hesitant people into getting the vaccine by saying “XYZ will happen” if they do is essentially lying to them. Once you give up certain things to authority it’s really hard sometimes to get those things back.

    Covid-19

    I wonder what vaccine fence riders think of your approach at trying to get them to jump over to your side? When I read your daily posts urging people to get vaccinated my gut reaction is that you aren’t helping but maybe it’s just me. I know your intentions are good though.
