Gen X is the demoralized generation. They just called it "ironic."
Okay. You're probably right about that one. But the election was rigged for Kennedy. He might not have done it, but it was definitely rigged. And there were fishy goings-on in the 1912 Republican Primary.
If your saliva is as thick as honey, you might want to see a doctor.
Are you so sure about that?
I just realized my living room kind of IS my study. Only thing missing is MOAR BOOKS!
Zimmerman was also following a minor who had every right to be where he was. Martin attacked him, and he had every right to defend himself, even to the point of death, but Zimmerman really did put himself in a situation where he didn't belong.
Rittenhouse was putting out fires and helping the injured in the middle of a riot that police and military were refusing to respond to when he was attacked by a mob.
The situations really aren't comparable.
Isn't a symptomless variant what we used to call a vaccine?
My grandfather got past that. He went from "if it's my time" to "I'm ready to go." And when he went, it was fast.
And who decides what the "facts" are?
The problem with this idea is it ends with the government being the arbiter of truth.
I wondered why there were so few police to control such a massive crowd. Now, I know. Fewer leaks to plug.
Where can I get information about the Dewey/Truman election? I'd never really questioned it before, but knowing what I know now, I'd like to hear the argument for Dewey's victory.
Hold the lettuce.
Edit: I stand corrected. I'd always assumed the name was Dutch because his son immigrated from Holland.
Right. But the American Rittenhouses are descended from Sir Georg Claus Rettinghausen. So it doesn't make sense to try to translate his anglicized name into Dutch or German.
Okay, but the name is Dutch, not Deutsche.
The problem with this argument is it assumes a perfect government can exist. The world we live in doesn't allow for that possibility. The founders realized this, which is precisely why they advised us that periodic revolution would be required to keep our freedoms.
You're an optimist.
Where do you live that NEW houses are selling for 200k? 2005?
That argument is growing stale since inflation is making $15 seen like pocket change. A year ago, it was true. Now, $15 an hour pays for gas back and forth to work.
WHY SHOULD THAT MATTER?!
This wasn't from minimum wage increases. This is from choking the supply chain and kneecapping gas production. Wages have been artificially deflated for the last 30 years. Minimum wage increases weren't going to fix that, but they also didn't cause this. Of note, specifically--the inflation is not happening in the states that increased wages. They're happening mostly in areas where transport is difficult.
I'm not surprised. Could be as distantly related to our Kyle as I am. Best guess, Kyle is probably my 5th cousin.
