    Canadian Politics: Revenge of the small minds

    Further complicating things is that apparently a bunch of those rail lines are going through disputed territory. Ultimately the Wet’suwet’en land issue seems to have been something of a rallying point that's bringing up a bunch of older issues that were never resolved. https://realpeoples.media/video-two-row-teachings-on-the-track/

    US Politics: I Say a Little Prayer for You!

    Probably wasn't the best idea to start courting support from outside the party when you're still at the point when you're supposed to be convincing your own side to support you. I know a lot of LGBT+ people, specifically trans people, who are worried that this is a sign that Bernie and his bros will be willing to throw them under the bus.

    Star Trek: Picard

    Hmm, potentially unpopular opinion but I kind of hope they get Garrett Wang to guest star in a few episodes. Give Harry the promotions and development he damn well earned on that show. Also have him direct and episode since he got screwed out of directing one on Voyager.

    Gun Control

    Nah, we're talking about deadly weapons. If someone was capable of stealing them, you clearly didn't secure them well enough.

    Canadian Politics: Revenge of the small minds

    Erin O'Toole was a the RMC vs Westpoint Hockey game last Saturday. If it wouldn't have gotten me into a lot of trouble I would have taken the opportunity to tell him what I think of him to his face.

    What shouldn't be done...about climate change

    Should be noted that the sun was much weaker at those points where CO2 levels were much higher. Were CO2 level to get to that point now with the Sun as it is, I don't know about "venusian" But it would make those "damn near tropical rain forest at the poles" days look absolutely frosty by comparison.

    None of the seeming front runners for CPC leadership seem to have any better chance of beating Trudeau than Scheer did, so that's good news. ETA: Also there's a $300000 dollar cost to run for leadership. And the CPC has the fucking gall to do the Republican style "we're against the elitists" horseshit.
  9. Interesting twitter thread. Shit like this is why security clearances are a thing and politicians shouldn't spout off on twitter.

    US Politics: Nancy's Knock on the Senate Door

    It's pretty amazing how powerful and evil this guy who no one had ever heard of until 3 days ago was. Would have thought this guy would have been covered more before the US assassinated him since he was apparently the cause of all terrorism ever.
  11. "People are who know stuff are authoritarian cause they recognize and tell you when you do stupid stuff." is an interesting argument, since trying to poison people against "intellectuals" is itself a very authoritarian method.
  12. I've recently started to come around to the idea of weighted votes in some fashion. After all, as a 20 something any long term policy is going to impact me far more than an 80 year old. So shouldn't my vote count somewhat more? Not sure there's a practical way to apply such a thing though.

    U.S. Politics: Huff and Puff the Socialism away

    Assuming you think they were telling the truth about the numbers, and besides even with a smaller number of employee's based on the sheer size the the tax break I'm pretty sure New York comes out ahead.

    The Mandalorian (Spoiler Thread)

    Not disagreeing, but wasn't it KOTOR that actually got that started? I'm almost certain that I remember Canderous going on about basically that during one of his many rants. As for the keeping the helmet on thing, Canderous didn't seem to give a shit during the events of KOTOR, on the other hand the mask of Mand'alor was a big deal. So maybe it's just a cultural difference within Mandalorians?

    Is it more difficult to get rid of a monarch? British monarch's have been made to abdicate before. The last one to do so did it because he wanted to marry someone who was divorced. So I'm not entirely certain it's more difficult to get rid of a terrible monarch than it is a terrible president.
