  1. That, and while 4 weeks of paid leave ain't enough and should be higher, right now we have unpaid leave only. Perfect doesn't have to be the enemy of advancing a good cause and having something there. Many programs that progressives cherish were not in fully-formed when they began. But what you're saying is likely falling on deaf ears. As it stands, I may have to abandon this thread. It's reading more and more like reactions from left-wing pundits and what some members' Twitter feeds look like, and regular stories on it aren't shared or discussed. And since everything is negative, everybody who broke after 2016 is going down a toilet bowl of emotions, so every 10th post is somebody talking about the end of everything. Maybe it'll improve. Or not, I've kind of given up on that front.
  2. The number of houses on it had been extraordinary. Well deserved. Switch still kicking ass, which isn’t a surprise.
  3. That answer by Powell on the birther/Muslim racist garbage sounds ahead of its time even now. Full quote: "And I think it has made the McCain campaign look a little narrow. It's not what the American people are looking for. And I look at these kinds of approaches to the campaign and they trouble me. And the party has moved even further to the right, and Governor Palin has indicated a further rightward shift. I would have difficulty with two more conservative appointments to the Supreme Court, but that's what we'd be looking at in a McCain administration. I'm also troubled by, not what Senator McCain says, but what members of the party say. And it is permitted to be said such things as, "Well, you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim." Well, the correct answer is, he is not a Muslim, he's a Christian. He's always been a Christian. But the really right answer is, what if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer's no, that's not America. Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet, I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, "He's a Muslim and he might be associated terrorists." This is not the way we should be doing it in America. I feel strongly about this particular point because of a picture I saw in a magazine. It was a photo essay about troops who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. And one picture at the tail end of this photo essay was of a mother in Arlington Cemetery, and she had her head on the headstone of her son's grave. And as the picture focused in, you could see the writing on the headstone. And it gave his awards--Purple Heart, Bronze Star--showed that he died in Iraq, gave his date of birth, date of death. He was 20 years old. And then, at the very top of the headstone, it didn't have a Christian cross, it didn't have the Star of David, it had crescent and a star of the Islamic faith. And his name was Kareem Rashad Sultan Khan, and he was an American. He was born in New Jersey. He was 14 years old at the time of 9/11, and he waited until he can go serve his country, and he gave his life."
  4. Biden to meet with House moderates and progressives Tuesday as Dems struggle reach reconciliation deal WWW.FOXBUSINESS.COM President Biden is also making calls to many House Democrats Monday and will also go to Scranton Wednesday as he pushes for trillions in social and climate programs.
  5. Being 84 with cancer and Parkinson's makes you most susceptible to death. "Breakthrough" cases aren't "skyrocketing." The fact is if a country is 0% vaccinated, there are no breakthroughs. If it's 50%, you'll have a higher number that are breakthrough. If it's 70%, probably a higher number but at this point, you're getting to herd immunity. You really should read the subreddit HermanCainAward to see how horrific non-breakthrough deaths are to normal 30/40 year olds.
  6. I always figured he was backstabbed, putting his trust in people he's known for a long time only for the trust to be betrayed on WMDs. He seemed like one of the most hesitant ones in that Bush administration to go to war and was a figure way back in 2008 who was trying to stop the far-right lurch of his party.
  7. Just broke. COVID. Colin Powell, military leader and first Black US secretary of state, dies after complications from Covid-19 WWW.CNN.COM Colin Powell, the first Black US secretary of state whose leadership in several Republican administrations helped shape American foreign policy in the last years of the 20th century and the early years of the 21st, has died from complications from Covid-19, his family said on Facebook. He was 84.
  8. Used to be a bunch of little boards out there. Now it's Reddit. And Reddit can be extremely enjoyable, so I'm not peeved at that, but I never understood the idea that boards are outdated. Since I started on the internet, chat rooms and boards have been a thing, and Discord is basically just a 21st century version of those old chat rooms.
  9. Which I don't really get. Long-form discussions and reading multiple conversations and being able to say something and come back later is way easier on a board, and chat rooms are just as old. Plus, Reddit is a supremely popular site and basically a bunch of gigantic boards; I think it succeeds because you can go to a billion different boards but only have to know one username/password.
  10. I don’t even know anymore with these interceptions.
  11. Many of us have posted with each other for 15 or 20 years now. Many of us came from IGN but not all of us.
