    That's a perverse disincentive to keep someone at the edge of the poverty level from crossing over into productive society. Let's say the poverty cutoff is $25,000 per year. So I go from zero taxes to $2,500? And there is still "meddling in your affairs" because there is still a yearly income report.

    Utah's 4th district's previous republican representative was Mia Love, a black woman of Haitian decent. She lost her seat to a democrat after a spat with President Trump over his alleged "shythole countries" remark. Now former NFL player Burgess Owens has retaken her seat and vows to fight the squad as a part of "Freedom Force." https://www.foxnews.com/politics/utah-rep-elect-owens-dems-hating-business-owners-freedom-force

    AP reported the same thing happening in 2017. Then it was democrats complaining about the voter fraud. What's consistent is Brian Kemp. He could be going along with voter fraud now to cover up fraud that helped him last go round. https://apnews.com/article/877ee1015f1c43f1965f63538b035d3f A computer server crucial to a lawsuit against Georgia election officials was quietly wiped clean by its custodians just after the suit was filed, The Associated Press has learned. The server’s data was destroyed July 7 by technicians at the Center for Elections Systems at Kennesaw State University, which runs the state’s election system. The data wipe was revealed in an email sent last week from an assistant state attorney general to plaintiffs in the case that was later obtained by the AP. More emails obtained in a public records request confirmed the wipe. The lawsuit, filed July 3 by a diverse group of election reform advocates, aims to force Georgia to retire its antiquated and heavily criticized election technology. The server in question, which served as a statewide staging location for key election-related data, made national headlines in June after a security expert disclosed a gaping security hole that wasn’t fixed six months after he reported it to election authorities.

    In terms of political victories: Rand Paul (Senate), Justin Amash (Congress: now gone), Thomas Massie (Congress), Glenn Jacobs (Kane of WWE fame: Mayor of Knoxville County) and now Kat Cammack (First time Congress). Agorists in Texas got the TSA pushed out of one of the local bus system. The feds had to stand down from the Bundy ranch dispute. In terms of educational victories: The FBI is no longer trusted by conservatives. (One good thing from the Trump administration). People are wary of vaccines like never before. (Ironically Trump pushing vaccines makes democrats wary). It's no longer taboo to question 9/11. Marijuana decriminalization passes every time it's brought up for referendum. Technology has really made gun control irrelevant. Alternative platforms to YouTube, Twitter and Facebook are gaining steam. Crypto currency is now mainstream.

    True. I do think not actually getting involved in a hot war with Iran is worth something. But yeah. A big part of the reason we aren't at war is Iran decided not to escalate. And yeah. There is no such thing as "bad publicity." The opposite of love is not hate. It's apathy.

    Of course. But on top of it she pushed a candidate that was guaranteed not to go after her because he was as dirty as she is. She picked a candidate who also pushed the gun control agenda (gun control by executive order with bumpfire stocks, pushing the red flag law trial balloon so effectively that even Rand Paul fell for it, and who pushed for an assault weapons ban in 2002 and later on as president). She picked a candidate who expanded the surveillance state in the name of "border security." (Face scanning cameras at airports and along the border). When it came to COVID-19, Trump was all in on vaccines, he criticized a governor for not locking down enough, he shot the conservative movement in the foot by secretly telling Bob Woodward that he "knew it was bad in January but downplayed it to not cause a panic", he never fired Fauci but just pussyfooted around on it. I know you know all of this. My point is Trump for the little good Trump did, he has been one helluva distraction from real advocacy. Look at how much energy on this forum goes to defending Trump's position on hydroxychloroquine, which despite being out of patent is still a pharmaceutical, versus pushing the fact that tried and true supplements without the dangerous side effects are undeniably effective! I guarantee you that you are better off taking a combo of vitamin D, vitamin C, zinc, NAC and melatonin than you are hydroxychlorquine. But anything pushed by Trump becomes clouded by politics both pro and con. You know what's funny? I heard a right wing talk show host just this morning attacking Democrat governors for questioning the safety of the new Pfizer vaccine. I get it. The Dems wouldn't be questioning this if Hillary had been president. But shouldn't the efficacy of a rushed vaccine backed by Bill Gates that may have fetal tissue in it be questioned? The "I gotta back it because it came from Trump" mentality is just as dangerous as the "I gotta be against it because it came from Trump" mentality. Anyhow, the deck was stacked in 2016 and they doubled down on stacking in 2020. Yeah it's terrible. At some point I'd rather just play a different game. And no not the "Let's have a civil war" or "Let's secede" game. Sorry but I have no more trust in the vast majority of the 70 plus million that voted for Trump than you have in the 70 plus million that voted against him. Jeff "asset forfeiture" Sessions not only voted for Trump, he was part of the freaking cabinet. Same with John "reject peace with Iran at all costs" Bolton.

    Roy Jones Jr. "won" by getting $10 million without having to suffer a traumatic brain injury. Seriously that was some smart fighting. He didn't try to box Mike as much as he grappled him. James Buster Douglas and Evander Holyfield used similar strategies against Iron Mike Tyson in his prime. Mike after the fight congratulated Roy for taking some hard shots to the midsection. And Mike got his $10 million too so both men went home happy.

    I supported some live music just last night. I went to a local tavern to grab a couple tacos and a couple beers and one of the musicians came in early to set up. Only three customers in the venue at that point. I bought him a beer when he was setting up and when he and his partner were playing, I dropped a $20 in the tip can. I doubt I'll ever see another stadium concert again. They were fun in my teens and 20s, but too much overhead these days even without covid passports and TSA. Three figure ticket prices? I'm pretty much tavern-only these days.

    Further to which (bold emphasis added; source: https://greenwald.substack.com/p/the-new-ruling-coalition-opposition): And that’s the key: the “disinformation” which these NBC, CNN and New York Times “gatekeepers” combat is not the truly potent propaganda that spews forth from the most powerful and pernicious sectors: CIA, FBI, Wall Street, and the corporate media outlets for which they work. That is the propaganda and disinformation they specialize in endorsing. These are not anti-disinformation warriors: they are disinformation agents. But they have become beloved icons to a significant segment of American liberals, who have somehow become convinced that these corporate media giants — in a radical reversal of the core principles of “Manufacturing Consent” — have suddenly transformed into truth-telling, power-confronting armies of anti-propaganda warriors. All of this is directly related to the overarching debate referenced above: what are the real power centers in the U.S., the ones most responsible for its worst acts and greatest dangers? Few things will provoke the anger of liberals, and amazingly even some on the left, more than criticizing the “disinformation” reporters of NBC and CNN or the “tech reporters” of The New York Times who perform the same dissent-suppressing, censorious functions. Three decades after Chomsky’s comprehensive warnings, much of the American liberal-left has come to see these corporate outlets not as the instruments of authoritarianism, oligarchy and propaganda but as their opposite: the noble bulwarks against it. That’s because — just like neocons, the CIA and the security state — these media outlets have recognized that they can lure liberals into adoring them by posturing as crucial allies in the fight against the rising threat of domestic fascism. Under this rubric, the most acute threats of authoritarianism and fascism emanate not from the FBI or CIA or their corporate masters and media outlets; instead, these factions have been elevated into the bravest and most important soldiers protecting us from those regressive forces.

    This question should be phrased in the reverse: why has the left hopped into bed with the CIA and FBI (and the corporate media)? The CIA, FBI and corporate media collectively used to be the bęte noire of the left. Once upon a time, they were regarded by the left as mortal enemies. But now, the left in the U.S. has been overrun with illiberal authoritarians. This last fact is true of both the establishment left (e.g., the Democrat party) and the radical left (e.g., Antifa/BLM).
