    Rents Are Through The Roof >10% Over PrePandemic Levels; In 0 of 50 States Can a Minimum Wage Worker Afford Housing

    While high gas prices are a real problem for working people, it gets so much attention from the media relative to high rents. The mainstream media's choice of what to cover and what not to cover, is usually based on the hopes, dreams, fears, and prejudices of middle-upper class homeowners. In...

    Happy Juneteenth My Kings and Queens

    They'll find a way to commoditize any emancipatory movement and/or symbol. As a thought experiment for the black people in this thread, I ask the following. If it ever comes to pass that black people enjoy full legal, social, political, and economic equality, would this kitschy ice cream and...

    The NYT called David Perdue's comments "racist." I'm in shock, they called him racist, not "racially charge" or "controversial" or "racially tinged," but racist. This is like seeing an NBA player score 108 points in a game, something theoretically possible but something I never though would...

    I don't think its a hard and fast rule for all of them (unlike mash bills and aging times and barrel types), but it does seem like Irish Whiskey is usually triple distilled and comes out pretty light in flavor and American and Scottish whiskeys/whiskys are not usually triple distilled. How was...

    Even when I was libertarian/conservative, I never liked cops and saw them as, at best, a necessary evil to uphold property rights. I remember it was 2012 and I was watching a panel discussion on a morning show on MSNBC. The topic was Trayvon Martin and one of the panelists said that many white...

    I just watched the clip you mentioned and oh lordy. Bill Maher prides himself on being smart (or at least smarter than conservatives) and yet he hasn't considered the fact that there's always been LGBTQ people and that prevailing legal and social conditions will encourage or discourage LGBTQ...

    Of course, this country is based on white supremacy and fears of whites being replaced, ran off, or even just specter of other whites making common cause with black and indigenous people has haunted white settlers in what would become the US since the 17th century. What is new or at least is...

    I light of what has happened in recent years and continues to happen, the Demographics as Destiny take comes off as very naive. It’d have to be amended to Demographics AND access to the ballot and no gerrymandering, and no malapportioned Senate and no filibuster and no federalist society are...

    TC is correct when he says that a more diverse electorate tends to benefit Democrats. Now his interpretation is that this is sinister and that Democrats also want to remove white people. Meanwhile, most on the broader left would say “good.” I want an electorate that renders white identity...

    Could we get a sticker of every GOP house member saying “I did that” and put it on gas pumps all over the country.

    I disagree with liberals on some things but it’s stupid to then decide that you’ll believe the opposite of whatever liberals say about an issue. BJG should realize it’s ok to agree with liberals on sometimes. Calling Tucker Carlson a white supremacist is one such area.

    He doesn’t say “whites, let’s go kill brown people because the Jewish cabal that runs the country won’t stop the brown hordes.” He’s more like, “You see it, you see it every day. Things are getting worse, this country is changing and they say you better be happy about it. How much more of this...

    She did not say that Tucker Carlson is not a white supremacist. She has been saying that Carlson says white supremacist things through an ostensibly race neutral lens, it causes liberals to overreach, and a neutral observer will think that liberals are being unfair to Carlson which further...

    Conservative forces, both the GOP and big city mayors and police unions have very cynically and very effectively been able to blame crime and minor increases in crime on “woke” policies and rhetoric. Related to this is the tendency to blame inflation and recessions on relatively mild...

    With all this talk about pedophilia and grooming, I am reminded of that fact that most acts of child molestation are caused by people whom the child knows. It is rarely a stranger who does it. Patriarchal societies, which hold up the family as supreme over the state are more likely to have...

    In the late 2000's and early 2011's, the conservative argument was that California is bad because it ran deficits and now CA is bad because it churns out surpluses. It was set up, by conservative media, as a tale of a profligate, socialist State failing and Texas was held up as the foil, a...
