Russia has escalated things

Re: Elon Musk, rip-off King!

The TeslaReal account always Tweet about a second Tesla slamming into the World Trade Center. Of course, this was all expected. I did set up a website wherein people could lookup if a user was verified before things changed. Looking at the analytics, nary a person has visited :) (aretheyauthentic.com)

Re: Elon Musk, rip-off King!

The guy who gives Trump bad legal advice chimes in, Elon responds. Advertisers are allowed to make their own decisions. It’s part of that whole freedom of speech thing. It's weird that they believe that companies don't act in their own self interest. Perhaps I will try to force Tesla to advertise o...

I thought that maybe Elon was good at business but I'm now beginning to question even that.

He's a poser. No idea why people still believe he's some sort of genius.

People claim all kinds of things. I like 538 because it weights pollsters based on their history of accuracy, which makes a lot of logical sense to me.

It isn't as if KSA is going to come right out and say that they'd manipulate oil prices to favor Republicans, so if you're expecting video evidence it's going to be difficult to provide it. Now, is it something that the Saudis would do? Absolutely, undeniably. They've been playing the USA for the lo...

Re: After today you are either calling for impeachment of Clarence Thomas, or

It's not really my place to call for his impeachment.

All I know is that the country's commitment to law, order, justice has taken a real beating the last several years as though it was slogans without meaning.

Re: Rear taillight Replacement on an EV Hummer

That's well more than I paid for my entire Ford Ranger.

I like it, but it's on its way to become a Flintstone vehicle as the the floor pan rusts away.

My Elantra had no rust issues. It did, however, have various suspension issue.

I'd fix the issues but I'm not so good with bodywork.

Re: Mass Shootings/Gun Control Reform Thread

As a general rule when a mass killer is African American the press isn't as interested. No, I think that the body count was insufficient to rate higher coverage. It was covered but just didn't make it to lead off anything. I mean, it could have been bigger news considering it was someone who wasn't...

If there are no Republicans who are fascists, there are certainly Republicans who are fascist-curious.

Donald and the adulation he receives have hallmarks of fascism.

In other words, Russia is planning on using a nuke. They like to make those threats but I still think it is highly unlikely for nuclear weapons to be used.

Absolutely.

There are lots of people who could take a balanced approach. I mean, I could. Yes, I have a bias but I can operate independently of that bias. It happens all the time, all over the world.

So what age is appropriate for a child to announce their gender identity and at what age should the change begin. Depends. At what age did you say "I think I'm going to be a heterosexual cis man"? It's not a decision you reach after weighing the pros and cons. It's innate feelings, a sens...

It would be free and fair if you had an independent, non-partisan group overseeing the elections. It's less free and fair when politicians make the rules.

Re: Texas Sending Students Home With DNA Kits

To fix the problem of mass shootings they'd have to regulate firearms. If they go regulating firearms, how will they scare voters? If voters aren't terrified, then they lose power.
