    Yep. I'm good with strikes. And a proper alliance of rural counties would make alternative sources harder to come by.

    With friends like these..... As if we're not setting enough bad precedents by having the government deposit money into people's bank accounts, now this fool wants to allow the government to deposit money into people's accounts once they've completed some government ritual??!! I don't how that could go wrong.

    Good. It looks like the farce of an election is already paying dividends. The first step in getting out of any hole is to stop digging. And falling for a conman who advocates more digging was a bad sign. Yeah, gonna have to go ahead and disagree with that one. We tried to tell you, but you were wedded to the con.

    What about some sort of Alliance of Rural Counties? Think of it like this: When workers felt as though they had lost power and influence among the businesses that employed them, they unionized to form a collective power. Could it be possible to "unionize" the rural communities within states to gain influence? They could form voluntary cross-state alliances as well. At some point, if their desires are still not being considered, they could threaten to secede and form their own states. Upstate and Western NY could merge with Western PA and Eastern Ohio, for example. It seems like something like this could start small, then escalate as necessary.

    My guess is that if people really got serious about secession, and wanted to move somewhere to do it, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan would be one of the places where the calculation of how costly its loss would be to the feds and the State of Michigan versus how costly the fight to keep it could be (if enough people came together to pull it off) would be most favorable to success.

    The value of Alaska to the regime in Washington DC alone makes it a uniquely difficult state to remove from its rule. How much would it be worth to the powers that be to stop Alaska from seceding? It would be worth more than most other states. War to some degree would be likely in almost any secession scenario. But for any secession to succeed, it would probably come down to a cost-benefit analysis on the part of DC where the trouble of keeping rule over these people who don't consent is costlier than just letting them go, not unlike what happened to Britain in the Revolutionary War. But with Alaska, it's not the submission of that state's tiny population that would matter, but the geography. It might even be worth killing off the entire state's population if necessary, just to retain control of that particular land.

    To the extent that there's any truth to that, it has nothing to do with their immigration status. It's an entirely separate issue. Natural born American citizens take entitlements without paying taxes all the time. And illegal immigrants often do the opposite--pay taxes by working under a Social Security Number that isn't really theirs, while not being able to get entitlements since only citizens are eligible for them.

    Funny you mention that. I was just wondering if this controversy has come up in the world of serious chess tournaments yet. A guy could be near the bottom of the top 1,000 men in the world and decide to call himself a woman and become the world's champion in women's chess.

    That is a very good point. Instead of saying that the regime lacks legitimacy on account of not winning a fair election, we should say that it lacks legitimacy whether it won a fair election or not. Winning elections doesn't confer legitimacy on governments that exercise powers that never rightfully belonged to the voters themselves in the first place so as to be able to delegate them to those they elect.

    I don't see it that way. We should be free to set up sports that discriminate by sex or handicap (and schools that don't depend on federal funding still will be able to do that). But we shouldn't have government mandates that artificially promote those things by requiring schools to divert money away from revenue-making mens athletics to prop them up. Undermining Title IX may not be the intended effect of this EO (and again, I'm skeptical that it will even do that). But if it does have that unintended consequence, as the OP predicts, then conservatives should welcome that. I also suspect that if this action does result in that consequence, it will serve to drive increased public opposition to the transgender movement, which I would also welcome.

    If the executive order really will have the effect Shrier predicts (which I doubt), then "eviscerates" is not really the right word. It just would remove the artificial propping up of women's sports that Title IX gives them. Women will now potentially have to compete for athletic scholarships on the basis of their athletic abilities and the abilities of their teams to draw revenue to their schools, instead of getting them just by being good at their sports in comparison to other women. I'm not sure that's a bad thing. The only glass ceiling this would place over them is the glass ceiling of their own lower athletic abilities in comparison to men. That glass ceiling has always been there. It just didn't stop them from getting athletic scholarships that would otherwise have gone to men with higher athletic abilities than them on account of Title IX.

    I have yet to meet anyone on the left that understands the Paris Climate Agreement. Each country makes their own goals (which they set lower than how they're trending, anyway) and then they report on their progress towards their self-chosen goals. And there is zero enforcement for meeting those goals. Zero. Imagine everyone on RPF agreeing to state their weight loss goals. I say I plan on gaining no more than 10 pounds per month. Then, I let you know how I'm doing. If I gain 11, no big whoop. Oh, and we put a bunch of money into the pot to help people with their goals.

    It's gonna get expensive. As far as the energy footprint, it's measured pretty well in dollars. Believe it or not, Bezos has streamlined the logistics thing better than any company in history. That saves energy. But if you're talking about a "carbon footprint", it's not accurately measured because of the variables. But Amazon is one of the ones pushing these carbon pricing games because they can afford to put their competition out of business. They've already got aggressive goals and contracts lined up to reduce their carbon output. But your small business can't compete on that scale.

    The problem was that the TV show was about "fraud" in the election. When it should have been about all the rules changing without a proper debate. They just did it. Had everyone covering their faces. Allowed the voting to go on for months. Circulated crazy amounts of ballots through the mail system for months. Social media handing out "likes" and badges to idiots for voting. Can all the lead to fraud? Yes. But that's not what makes the process illegitimate. But I'm glad all that false hope was finally crushed. Many of us never subscribed to the con to begin with and we were pulling our hair out trying to wake up others. Maybe after a soul-crushing blow like this, people will stop putting their faith in a broken system to fix itself.

    You're the one sitting in your ivory tower & pointing fingers- and you can smack your damned head all you want. This whole thing has been nothing but a charade- and I've been saying this since the last election- Kabuki Theatre up the ying yang for all desperate suckers to fall in line with TPTB's plans. Now we have lockdowns, a false "plandemic", mandated masks & home prisons, more division than ever, a killer vaccine for the masses, the economy drowning with no probable return- and guess who fronted all that? Clue: It wasn't Creepy Biden.

    Good example. There's a reason Next News Network (along with countless other clickbait sites) does that. They're not trying to make productive contributions to a forum. They're trying to get people to wonder what those suggestive titles are talking about, and then click the link and get redirected to their website or Youtube videos, which they then have to watch in order to get the answer to the question.

    Another big name on the anti-Keystone side is Warren Buffet. His company, Berkshire Hathaway, owns Norfolk Southern Santa Fe Railroad, which is in direct competition against the Keystone Pipeline for the transportation of that oil. Buffet was a huge donor and supporter of Obama, who refused to issue the Keystone permit when he was president. His relationship with Biden doesn't seem to be as tight. I don't think he even endorsed him. But I'm sure that he's still a factor here. As for the issues involved, I'm more concerned about the private property rights of land owners. I don't recognize the existence of a right for the oil company to build a pipeline on other peoples' land, if they don't want to sell their land or to have a pipeline go through it. I don't see any real impact on fossil fuel use here. That may be the issue that both sides want to publicize this as being about. But I don't think that's what it really is about.
