    TFG and TP vs Biden and formula

    It's a bummer the right Wing posters here are dwindling because I really want to know why many think Biden is somehow at fault for a baby formula shortage yet TFG was not at fault for TP and other shortages in 2020.  I have my own theories but I am honestly here to learn.  Please tell me what...

    Biden cancels leases

    https://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/3485545-biden-administration-cancels-oil-and-gas-lease-sales-in-alaska-gulf-of-mexico/amp/ Obviously not the best move politically but why sell leases if oil companies won't pump more?

    Go Joe!

    Absolutely loved the President's speech.  Maybe more confrontational than it needed to be but the truth needs to be told.  I LOL'd when he noted the recounts that actually found more votes for Biden. There truly are 2 sides to this and I believe one is right and one is wrong.  What's happening...

    Oh my heck! Racism in Utah schools?

    Forgive the colloquialisms but this is a big dill.  Davis School District is one of the largest in the state.  It is also the second most Mormon school district as well. There's also a lot of swinger activity, but I digress... Racism is not gone.  It seems it's actually growing.  The irony is...

    Nostalgia and the complaints about modern AC racing

    I've been debating this with people ever since 2010 when it was decided to go the AC would go with cats, then foiling cats and now foiling monohulls.  There seems to be this cry that the AC needs to return to "real" match racing and boats that somehow make close quarters racing more common. ...

    It's a New Day!

    The contrast couldn't be more stark.  Yesterday, one guy rambled on about how great he thinks he is. The other memorialized the 400,000 Americans who have died from COVID.  Today, one guy was again talking about how great is then slunk off to his palace filled with pictures of himself and golden...

    AC boats fail

    A quick reminder and counter to the cynicism in visual form... It can and has been fatal.  I suppose we can all stay home if the risks don't suit us.

    Junior calls for war

    https://www.huffpost.com/entry/donald-trump-jr-total-war-2020-election_n_5fa47d09c5b6600956980c69 So, like a real war?  A thumb war?  A war of words?  As the kids say, "I can't even".

    Repeal and replace

    The GOP has been unable to repeal the ACA.  They keep promising a replacement.  I'm pretty good at the Google thing and seriously, I came up empty.  Does anyone have an inside line?

    Police and Military Worship in the USA

    I've been thinking about this a lot in the last 5 years or so.  I have never been comfortable with the "support our troops" mantra.  I remember being a freshman in high school in the swim practice car pool when it was announced on the radio that the US had entered Kuwait and Desert Storm had...

    Hunter vs. Jared vs. Andrew

    So, since Republicans are so concerned over Hunter Biden's qualifications for earning a high but not out of the norm salary for sitting on the board of an international energy company.   What qualifications does Jared Kushner have to set Middle East policy?  Supposedly he's read 2 dozen books...
