Re: Thank you coal!

How can something that provides 23% of the grid power going offline NOT be “significant”? "Least significant." The entire system failed spectacularly, including fossil fuels and nuclear. Again this is not a indictment of one energy source over another, but it's an indictment of the people...

Re: Thank you coal!

Before global warming was imagined, we would go a week with -20 for the high, and no talk of power outages. Something change over the years. Aging infrastructure and decades-long tax cuts. Some states and localities decided to increasingly privatize utilities to offset the lack of incoming money, b...

Re: 2021 Motorsports Thread

I grew up going to dirt track races. Rarely go anymore. One of my little brothers is going to the race today. He has timeshares in Daytona for the races. I enjoy almost all the forms of motor racing. I do not enjoy the constant talking of the commentators, but that isn't confined to motor racing. N...

Re: Cancel Culture thread

AOC and Tlaib are the closest to real socialists, so I'll amend my prior statement and you can move them left.

Bernie is not a socialist despite whatever he wants to call himself. Progressive? Yes. Socialist? No.

Society cancels Nazis and other far-right political ideologies, so I'm not sure why we shouldn't cancel Trumpism too. It's an economic and social threat to our Republic which was confirmed on January 6th. It's not a movement that will be looked at kindly in 20+ years. Trump and his people can still ...

Any other era in American history, Trump would've been hung and buried by now. Many of the insurrectionists too. Glad all the evidence is being aired out for the history books, but our descendants are going to be puzzled at allowing Trump and his merry band of traitors get away with this (as they w...
