Re: Time to expand the Strategic Petroleum Reserve?

There's plenty of wasteland west of the Appalachians to use for this reserve. :thumb: Agreed. We should use the entire State of Oklahoma for it. Just dig a giant underground pit for it. That state is decimated by tornadoes anyway so doing underground reserves makes sense there. What about all the e...

Re: The Trump Whistleblower Extravaganza Thread

Yeah, I don't know what to think about this. A person gets voted in to represent the local views and/or follow the party lines. It seems switching parties is a bit extreme. Going independent seems to be a more practical approach so that you can truly sort through the legislative decisions that best...

Re: LPGA Q-School Controversy

It would be the same 2 stroke penalty regardless of when they were notified. The advice rule has been around as long as these players have played the game. I don't believe they didn't know about the rule.

Most people don't play golf. They are pretending to play golf.

Of course of someone didn't pick up a soccer ball and run with it, we wouldn't have rugby or american football.

Re: Korean PGA Ban

So what if the caddie stood facing the golfer and told them how to move their feet? Penalty there too? I know golf nerds love the arcane rules, but there are plenty of really dumb rules in golf. I believe that's fine, but I can't imagine anyone doing that. Give me some examples of the ones you thin...

Re: Rural Americans would be serfs if we abolished the Electoral College

The now Democrat-controlled House of Representatives introduced a bill to eliminate the Electoral College. Since they didn't win the last presidential election under the rules that have existed for almost 250 years, they now want to change the rules. Below is the explanation of why this is a very, v...

Re: What if red states and blue states became two countries

If you look at the detailed voting map vs. States, the area of Country Red would be quite a bit larger. Look at the map of NYS as an example.

Re: Climate Change Beyond Reversal

There's a us geologic survey plate on the side of the building I used to work at in downtown Albany, NY. It was something like 16' above sea level. 60 meters would be way more water than that map is showing.
