Re: Virginia/New Jersey Elections

Indeed. It's not really rocket science - we flood the market with money (COVID relief bills, and as you say, the one passed this year was clearly too much too late, and likely the last one under Trump was too much), we hamper the supply chain (restrict energy production in the US, dis-incentivize w...

Re: Kyle Rittenhouse Trial

Agreed on most of it, he's guilty of the misdemeanor, anything after that is looking pretty clearly as self-defense. The first guy he killed said he was going to kill Rittenhouse, the second guy he killed was pummeling him with a skateboard, and the third guy ran at him with a gun pointed at him (h...

Re: Coronavirus COVID-19

Is the administration pushing to have all folks on the government dole vaxed? Wouldn't they fall under the large company fold? They're two different things, and the administration has vastly more power with the federal workforce than they do with private industry. In all likelihood, the federal man...

Re: Kyle Rittenhouse Trial

I'm not sure murder was the best charge. The kid drove from out of town (out of state), with a weapon (he couldn't legally have), and ended up killing 2 and injuring 1. Regardless of your feelings towards the protest - the kid fucked up and should be held accountable. :twocents: He should be held a...

Re: Virginia/New Jersey Elections

Have to agree with JSO on this one TBH. People think of inflation as being created by demand shocks like a greater money supply but they can also be created by supply shocks, which we clearly have with our supply chain and labor shortage issues. As for blaming Biden, what goes around comes around. ...

Re: US SOCCER

How important is the game Friday? Obviously the only thing that matters is finishing in the top 3, so we probably won't know for a while if it's really important. My guess is a 1-0 or 2-1 loss, which will be blown off as nothing. Nah, you can't lose at home. The game's in Cincinnati, so they've pul...

Re: Сделаем Америку снова великой! Trump - Russia megathread

As bad as Jan 6th was, and people trying to call it a coup attempt (which it may have been), history is not going to judge the coup attempt that started before Trump's election and many years into it any better. I don't like Trump a little bit, but what went on to try to smear him prior to the elect...

Re: Kyle Rittenhouse Trial

This trial never should've gone forward with the murder charges. You have to think the prosecution had at some point talked to the people they were calling for witnesses and realized they would never be able to get around the self-defense claim of the defendant. Taking him to trial on something less...
