    Well, at least you're consistent. Consistently wrong, but consistent nonetheless.

    The best activism is to use the exit. It always is. That's one of the reasons the free market works so well - it's easy to exit if you're not satisfied. Trying to get a school board to listen to protesters may work a little sometimes. I'm sure there'll be some wins there. But removing children is THE best thing anyone can do. We should make signs to picket along side these parents, "PULL YOUR KIDS OUT: They won't understand anything else." And then give them the information in those online resources. I wonder if there's any organizations that would help with that effort?

    Man, the more I see this guy, the more I like him. I'm not necessarily a religious person, but it's great to see the value that his religious understanding is giving him. They're going to try to tear him down. They'll say he's promoting his book and apparel company. They'll demean his motivations. They'll dig into his past. And they'll make sure those ventures fail. He'll be lucky if they don't fabricate some scandal against him. He needs strength, but it looks like he has it. He just needs to keep it.

    Perhaps. But even if that's true, it will never do it as quickly and efficiently as eliminating regulations and taxes. Plus, the cost is, especially under current economic circumstances, extreme economic hardship for almost everyone. https://mises.org/wire/against-trumps-tariffs-0 https://mises.org/wire/how-look-tariffs-1

    Exhibiting your keen economic insight again, I see. Despite your pathological love for them, protectionist tariffs do not ameliorate this situation even the tiniest little bit. Manufacturers didn't move their operations overseas because of a deficiency of tariffs here in the US. In fact, most of the industries concerned enjoyed such tariffs, at least occasionally, before and during their moves overseas, and many continue to enjoy them afterwards. No, inadequate tariffs didn't cause the problem and they won't fix it. Manufaturers moved their operations overseas because here in the US they were burdened by massive overregulation and taxation. Reduce or eliminate those and manufacturing returns. Furthermore, given the current economic situation, with the liklihood of significant price inflation looming, adding the burden of price increases due to tariffs unneccessarily increases the economic hardship we'll all soon be suffering. Pitch your economic illiteracy elsewhere, please.

    The more I think about it, this is the angle with the best payoff here. And not just to make this point ourselves, but to point out the obvious fact that Buttigieg himself apparently agrees that the job of the Transportation Secretary is not really all that important. Even as much of an unabashed champion of central planning in transportation as Buttigieg, and even at such a historically crucial juncture for that issue in federal politics, he considers his job as unnecessary.

    On the other hand, his being gay and publicly celebrating that aspect of his personal life, is a major reason he was so prominent in the 2020 primaries, and then elevated to such a high position at such a young age and with so little on his resume compared to what is typical for a head of a federal department. He made it an issue. And now look at the results. Imagine if a straight man in his position just decided to take a months long paid leave at taxpayer expense, neglecting work that according to his own worldview is vital to the nation at a time when according to his own worldview it's even more vitally important than normal, because his wife had a baby.

    Due to nominal rigidity or "price stickiness", electric rates may stay low for longer. Because most electric distribution rates have to be "approved" by utility commissions, they have to build complicated rate cases to raise their rates. That doesn't hold true for all generators or utility co-ops, but it means it'll take awhile for inflation to hit that sector. Now, working in this industry, it concerns me because the costs of materials is rapidly rising and it is becoming harder and harder to get transformers, poles and wires... If major storms come through this winter and the ice damages the lines, utilities will have to operate at HUGE losses which will have to be worked into a future rate case. Not to mention that labor costs are going to skyrocket the next time the annual review process or union contracts come up. Those signs point to LONG restoration times, cuts in preventative maintenance, and political pressure to slash the utility return on equity. In other words, keep that wood burner handy - we're going to need them!

    That's the thing. It's a premise. A mere assumption. Not a conclusion that can be drawn as either definite or probable from the evidence given. You don't talk as if you're hypothesizing and may or may not ultimately be proven right. You make absolute statements as matters of fact that you can demonstrate to be true. But again and again, your demonstration is sorely lacking. You have some good points. But they'd be stronger, not weaker, if you could bring yourself to be objective about them. The fact that you feel the need not to be betrays that you don't think you could prove the conclusions you want to prove with the level of certainty that you want to pretend to have if you confined yourself to rules like that.

    Who said ANYTHING about the strikes being vaccine related? Are you trying to change the thread subject again?? The government’s insane intervention (takeover) of the economy is doing this. And it’s escalating quickly with every new contract that is coming up. But yeah, vaccines. :rolleyes:

    You just answered your own question. Dr. Quay, when you actually hear him speaking his own words, is far more objective in that radio interview than the article that selectively quotes him in the OP is, with omission of qualifying points (which I have already pointed out multiple times in the thread). The OP is the opposite of objective. If you can't see that, it's because it's doing the same thing you constantly do here, apparently believing yourself to be objective too. Notice that Bongino himself is much more cautious in this interview, making a point to bring up some of the same counterpoints that I did, and Quay even more so.

    Granted, I don't watch a lot of media, but are they being kinda silent on the current labor strikes going on?? Like every thing, you can find the stories, but why isn't it making it into the narratives? Or maybe it is and I'm missing it? But, Kellogg, John Deere, Kaiser Permanente, Film Crews, Hospital Workers... There are lots more on the way... Basically, any contract that is coming up is getting held up because of the various reactions to the government's Covid response/inflation/panic. Yet another unforeseen consequence of this insanity. But is the media narrative linking these all together for the purposes of implementing their Marxist paradise??

    Thats great. I hope whatever you two learned sticks forever. We're really struggling financially and of course we have other problems, but we're together, pretty happy and have faith that it will be OK.
    I forget where you went. Can you tell me about the place? I also wnt to know (if you want to tell me) where you took her on date night. On our date night we went out to dinner and had some horrible conch fritters. NEVER AGAIN on conch fritters. But then we went out to a bar on the beach, and took a moonlight walk. Wound up nekked making love on the beach and got caught by a couple walking by. Allin all it was a great trip. Our's was in Delray Beach Florida.

    I do not think your wife would have any problem finding a nursing job up here. My sister-in-law is going back to school just so she can become a nurse and she plans on moving here from Florida, that was the reason for her career change. They have visiting nurses. There are lots of good hospitals like Dartmouth Hitchcock.
