    In the 1950's there were 102 "widely recognized sovereign states" (per wikipedia), that's now up to 195. Certainly not a direct indication since none came from the USA but it's still something. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states_in_the_1950s https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states_in_the_2020s

    There is no indication it can be done successfully, much less peacefully. As for me I am ok with staying if the federal government was under control as the Constitution prescribes. End fiat money, go back to legislatures electing US Senators, and abolish the income tax, commerce clause abuse, etc. But since none of those things are likely to happen, I'm ok leaving if there is a chance of success. But there are sadly no options in front of us at present. As I've reasoned for a number of years, I think the federal government may either collapse or become impotent due to a currency crisis and that could be the thing that allows the US to regionalize / balkanize. Again though, the enemy isn't just in DC or "up north" or "in California" anymore... it is in the next largest urban area.

    It won't be them people will be fighting, it will be the government. Who do you think enforces all of these draconian anti-freedom "progressive" agenda laws?

    they don't just let you leave peacefully... besides, the country isn't divided on geographic lines as much as it used to be, it is non urban vs non-urban. Suburbs are the battleground.

    The Corny-Murphy Senate Gun Control Deal: - BANS gun possession based on juvenile records for all gun owners. (Section 12001) - STRIPS gun rights for adults based on mental health care after the age of 16. (Section 12001(a)(1)(A)(ii)) - Opens up decades-old juvenile records, dumps them into the NICS prohibited persons list, uses them to disqualify gun purchases for law-abiding adults. (Section 12001(a)(2); Division B, Title I) - Makes it virtually impossible for 18-20-year-olds to purchase any firearm. Includes a 10-day waiting period. (Section 12001)

    The Texas GOP concluded their state convention in Houston today and per reports... There are now platform planks that effectively call for a state wide vote for Texas to reassert itself as an independent nation and otherwise call for state sovereignty due to federally mandated legislation that infringes upon the 10th Amendment. The Texas National Movement (TNM) is the force behind this: https://tnm.me/ Their Texas independent booth was quite popular at the convention. Learn more about TEXIT: https://tnm.me/texit

    BETRAYED: The back-stabbing GOP Senators involved in the gun control deal announced today are John Cornyn (TX), Lindsay Graham (SC), Thom Tillis (NC), Richard Burr (NC), Mitt Romney (UT), Bill Cassidy (LA), Roy Blunt (MO), Susan Collins (ME), Rob Portman (OH), Pat Toomey (PA). Worse, Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell is signaling his support too. The deal reportedly includes Red Flag Gun Confiscation, Expanded Gun Registration, and restrictions on the rights of military age Americans to purchase firearms. If these are your Senators give them an earful! And wherever you live, tell BOTH of your Senators to oppose this gun control deal! https://www.facebook.com/nagrfb/posts/10159048893160432

    Considering total cost of ownership for a fully capable vehicle, I don't see anything close to a hybrid. Been this was for 10+ years. Toyota has hybrid SUVs that get 40 mpg, cars at 60. https://www.toyota.com/hybrid-suvs/ https://www.toyota.com/hybrid/ Lots of people still don't understand the keys to why it's effective as it's a bit nuanced, so: - you can get away with having a very small gas engine because when you need max power, you have two motors providing power at the same time. Peek power needs are short bursts but needed. So you start with a small gas engine that is very fuel efficient. - the gas engine can shut down for low power demand situations, when the battery can handle it. - the gas motor can efficiently recharge the battery in moderate power demand situations.

    That's really the crux of the problem, young kids don't have much interest anymore. Hell, most of them don't even want to learn to drive. This will probably start leading to cabotage, if anything. No, a Pt 141 university BS + flight training is about $200k now. It is nearly impossible to get your tickets for less than $100k.... the only trick to it (besides military) is to buy your own plane and hire a flight instructor... and then sell the plane when you're done. I am a commercial pilot but at the moment I'm back working in politics due to a series of unfortunate events (layoffs, mergers, injury, covid, etc). However I'm actively looking to get into another flying job again. I started in 2016, got all of my ratings in 8 months (I'm not an instructor).

    If you go to one or two of the big flight schools, loans from Sallie Mae are given. Anyone can become a pilot as long as you don't have a disqualifying condition.

    Not even close. A trained monkey could fly an airplane; it isn't that hard to program from a coding perspective. However pilots get paid to make decisions. And AI is many many many decades from being able to make the same level decision making as a human, if at all. Not to mention the psychological, marketing, and regulatory factors which are a bigger hurdle than the technilogical factors. You'll start to see cargo airlines maybe start to have drones or remotely piloted aircraft. But as far as passenger airlines? Nope, no time in the foreseeable future. The pilots in those crashes were poorly trained on how to disable a system that was faulty. MCAS took control of the plane and it didn't matter what their stick and rudder skill level was if they couldn't disable the faulted safety overrides.

    Obvious attempt at infringement, but also one not well considered. It would just incentive selling stripped lowers (aka the gun)... at $60, the tax is a minor obstacle.

    I've been thinking about how predictable politics can seem and wondering if there could be laws akin to physics laws to govern them, so I came up with the three laws of politics: 1) Every opinion in a state of uniform motion will remain in that state of motion unless an external force acts on it. 2) Political energy can be neither created nor destroyed. 2) For every lie there is an equal and opposite lie. Any thoughts/criticisms/additions?
