  1. Sway them to what? I think we've seen how a lot of conservatives in this country "sway" and I'm not eager to watch them storming the Supreme Court building to stop a ruling.
  2. @knowledge dropper provides the amusement. Don't worry about whether he honestly believes anything he writes, as it doesn't matter. He's self aware. As for the rest, I'd be prepared for the depression to exceed mild. The good news is it's a great primer for who should be put directly onto your ignore list.
  3. Canada guy has a much clearer grasp on the present situation in the US than many Americans. Witness the fanboys in this thread as crystal clear evidence.
  4. Jesus. I'm a pretty pro-2A guy, but after reading SC's posts, I'm beginning to swing the other way...
  5. Completely against what is going on with regard to the videotaped messages during services. However, I voted On the Fence, as I could see a situation where a parishioner was running for office and I don't think I'd have a problem with the clergy or church administration supporting that. File this as one of the many reasons I don't go to church anymore. I would also fully support removing tax-exempt status for all churches and religious organizations, right now.
  6. I had a similar experience with my Pfizer booster. The second shot just made me achy and abnormally tired and sluggish. The booster was the same symptoms, but all worse, plus chills and a slight fever (100).
  7. Your wife and I are in similar situations, but my company's deadline is in December and was just announced this week. I have spoken to a few of my co-workers who are talking about leaving because of the mandate. Not sure how serious they are, and frankly I'd be interested in one of their positions if they did leave. Another just caved and got the shot after it was announced. Please keep us updated on how this goes, as it could inform me on what to expect.
  8. Criminal charges against Bannon? By Luke Broadwater Oct. 14, 2021Updated 2:49 p.m. ET WASHINGTON — The chairman of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol set a vote next week to recommend that Stephen K. Bannon, a former top adviser to President Donald J. Trump, face criminal contempt charges for refusing to comply with a subpoena. The move would escalate what is shaping up to be a major legal battle between the select committee and the former president over access to crucial witnesses and documents that could shed light on what precipitated the riot, when a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol and disrupted Congress’s formal count of the votes that confirmed President Biden’s election. It came after Mr. Bannon informed the panel that he would defy a subpoena in accordance with a directive from Mr. Trump, who has told former aides and advisers that they should not cooperate with the inquiry because he is claiming executive privilege, which can shield White House deliberations or documents involving the president from disclosure. “Mr. Bannon has declined to cooperate with the select committee and is instead hiding behind the former president’s insufficient, blanket and vague statements regarding privileges he has purported to invoke,” Representative Bennie Thompson, Democrat of Mississippi and the chairman of the committee, said in a statement. “We reject his position entirely. The select committee will not tolerate defiance of our subpoenas, so we must move forward with proceedings to refer Mr. Bannon for criminal contempt.”
  9. I would argue that despite how poorly things have gone, the upgrade was still way more than marginal over the last guy.
  10. The PSF in it's original incarnation was my primary news source about politics. It isn't as good now as it was then, as a mass exodus of posters has steadily whittled away the diversity. But it's still pretty solid.
  11. Those people aren't being paid to stay home anymore. Yet the labor shortage still in full effect. I've read quite a bit about why that might be, and what I'm seeing is that no one has any concrete answers. If you can link something that might, I'd be very interested in reading it. My employer is in a giant labor crunch right now and is incentivizing like crazy, with no tangible results. I'm devoting a lot of time and energy to hiring new staff, and frankly it's not a part of my job I relish.
  12. Inflation is all Biden's fault? Has nothing to do with Covid shutting down most of the world for the last two years and all the supply chain and production issues that resulted?
  13. Yes, really. This has been gone over ad nauseam. It wasn't about Orange Man Bad. It was about Orange Man So Bad that our entire way of life felt like it was being threatened by a megalomaniacal narcissist that showed us every day that he cared about nothing other than himself, his power, and his money. He didn't care about you, or any of his other supporters. He didn't care about policy, the nation, the environment, foreign relations, none of it. He would burn it all down for his own edification. Meanwhile his supporters told us the exact opposite, and believed it. Talk about ignoring all the signs! That is what led us to vote for anyone but Trump. Biden just happened to be the anyone. To be clear: I am very disappointed in Biden's presidency. But I would still vote for him over Trump, even knowing what I know now, with no hesitation whatsoever.
  14. That's a whole lot of words, very few of which are related to the topic at hand, to basically say... what are you trying to say? We're all soft middle aged men that deserve to have their throats cut? I mean, I'm honored that you chose to quote me before going off on your diatribe, as you are currently the gold standard amongst the right-wingers here for the bloviating "own the libs" types of responses they're so fond of. And of course I will defer to you over the opening of your rant somehow being tangentially related to my post, because you're so obviously intellectually superior to me. Please humor my weak-minded inability to find that relation.
