@ The Insane Asylum – regarding your comment “That’s why you don’t pick a senile weakling.” Reasonable people had no choice. President Biden was not my first choice. But, compared to the previous guy…
So, Mr. Bok. You don’t believe in looking at our societies’ history, identifying mistakes and trying to do better in the future?
I am a resident of New York State and very much a voter for the Democratic Party. I have had a longstanding dislike of Andrew Cuomo and I am in no way surprised by the revelations about him. (Although I must admit he did a good job handling the pandemic.) I don’t watch CNN so I rarely saw his brother. But, it does not shock me that Andrew’s brother was also a bit less than honorable.
I am impressed with my restraint. In a private conversation I would use much coarser language than dislike and a bit less than honorable. The terms scumbags or pieces of dirt come to mind. Oops. There goes my restraint.
I have no idea how anyone can believe that. To date, the exact opposite has been true. Economic growth although a wonderful thing in many respects has damaged the environment and caused environmental and climate disaster. A serious question. If we regulate and guide economic growth in a helpful direction we could change that. I hope.
Damn. Daeder beat me to it by a couple minutes
It could be any book on any topic that is mostly truth and is accurate :)
The Republican Party and some Democrats are stuck on their ideology. Free Markets good. Government regulation bad. They can’t give an inch on that or the whole concept comes tumbling down.
That really isn’t fair. There are more sensible Republicans than that. I think the number is close to double digits.
You are correct. I was probably still falling for the official line that drone attacks never caused casualties that weren’t the actual target.
This is a problem that goes back to the Obama administration. It is why I have always questioned the use of drones in this manner. I remember discussing this with a co-worker who unlike me disliked Obama. My point was that during the Obama administration there would be little frank discussion of the collateral deaths caused by drone attacks. Democrats would never criticize Obama and Republicans had no problem with the collateral deaths because they were part of the war on terror. I was correct until now.
