    DeSantis’ Florida continues to persecute academic freedom

    The college board is changing the curriculum of the African-Americans studies course. Critics say it’s being done to appease DeSantis: https://www.npr.org/2023/02/01/1153434464/college-boards-revised-ap-african-american-studies-course-draws-new-criticism Let’s see if Florida accepts the new course. I’m betting they won’t. If they do, I will be forced to reassess my position.

    Debt Ceiling 2023

    Yes I know. It’s one of the rare times that I strongly disagree with them.

    Those were exactly what I was thinking of when I wrote that.

    Debt Ceiling 2023

    This issue isn’t going away. Republicans say they won’t agree to raise it unless Biden and the Democrats agree to negotiate over the budget. The Democrats say no, don’t take the US economy hostage. But the bigger problem is that Republicans can’t agree by themselves about what they want. (IMO, that is because what Republican politicians really want is to show their supporters that they’re serious about cutting spending without ever really cutting spending.) None of this would be bothersome to me, it’s just politics as usual and eventually, towards June, the two sides should get together and work it out….except…my biggest fear is that there are some extremists on the Republican side who don’t want any kind of deal. They want to blow things up.

    Incredible that people who claim to care about freedom are defending this.

    Why should I care about Hunter Biden?

    Appreciate the sarcasm. Look, I’m not gonna hide that I begin from a perspective of deep skepticism. But Strike is wrong; if something truly damning comes out I will change my mind.

    Why should I care about Hunter Biden?

    First you have to prove that Joe Biden corruptly accepted money. Next you have to demonstrate that this money caused Joe Biden to take actions and policies which he otherwise would not have done. I think it’s going to be impossible to prove these two points. I think that anyone watching is going to be confused by the details- the reason I think this is because I’m a political junkie, I’ve tried to follow it with an open mind, and I’m honestly confused. I don’t think the public will care about this, and frankly I don’t think they should.

    Trump vs DeSantis

    That’s fair. But I think you’d be hard pressed to make a compelling argument that re-electing Donald Trump would move this nation in a good direction.

    Trump vs DeSantis

    I really wish her well. Unfortunately I don’t think the base of the Republican Party is where she is right now, unless she panders to them. I hope she doesn’t.

    No topic on George Soros?

    Also- what makes the President of NPR vile? I don’t know who that is, so just curious.

    The article isn’t about any of the issues you mentioned; it’s about Soros’ work in Eastern Europe in the 1980s and 90s. Do you challenge any specific fact that appears in the article?

    But most of the nation would not.
  13. Since nearly all of the posts in this thread come from people who are opposed to the Democrats anyhow, it’s difficult to look at the criticism expressed against Kamala as anything but partisan. I won’t judge her as a Vice President because I think it’s pretty dumb to judge them: they never do anything (with the possible exception of Cheney who was seemingly heavily involved in Bush’s decision making.) As a politician she is just OK, nothing special. But since it appears that Biden is running for re-election, she will be on the ticket again. I doubt the ticket will be harmed by that.

    Taxes are racist

    Like a record baby! (Right round round round)

    So what? None of the facts are wrong,
