If by "privatized forest management" you mean clear-cutting the forest and building luxury apartments and homes, you are correct.

Re: Guess what an idiot with a gun did this time

I'm not even taking sides in the matter but it's insanity to keep doing the same thing over & over and expect anything to change. It's insane to equate people who say we need more gun control with people saying we need more guns, and blaming them both for "same thing/nothing changes"....

Re: Politics & Current Events

Why is Nancy Pelosi in particular a good bogeyman, the fact that she's from California? All the 'liberal elite' scaremongering just uses her as an avatar, anyone they make Speaker would work just as well. Name recognition for one. She's done the job a lot, and has already had a LONG history of the ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I've been thinking, I feel like Theo is harder on the team than some posters here. Like, while some were trying to calm the fears of our offense being junk, I feel like he thinks it was total junk and horsefeathers needs to happen. I like that. I like to think this is especially true now. Missing o...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I think yesterday's outcome is as close to a best-case scenario as the Democrats could have hoped for. In Alabama, it turns out the Trump did fire up the blue hairs and knuckle draggers. I didn't help that Democrats don't have a functioning party apparatus. As for O'Rouke, Gillum, and Abrams, I'm sa...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I’ve been mostly driving African Americans to the polls so my sample is biased, but Black turnout is incredible in Montgomery Alabama.

I don’t want to get my hopes up, but they are.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Huge turn out in Alabama. No one knows what that means. It could be that Trump scared the knuckledraggers enough or it could mean a Democratic wave the likes of which we've never seen. There are some real horsefeathers stains holding office in Alabama.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Maybe for this horsefeathers to actually work out for once, the Cubs have to go back to being infuriating and they have to have a horsefeathers offseason and be mediocre next year. Like, the reverse version of how the Cubs winning it all ushered in Trump. The Cubs HAVE to miss on Harper, for the go...

I just can’t bring myself to believe that the Cubs won’t be in on Harper and Machado. I mean, sure, there’s a strong possibility they get neither. But all these reports read like they’re not even going to really try. And afte the way the season ended, that would be flat out negligent. It’s worse th...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a gun did this time

Another child was killed in Alabama close to my town. She found a loaded gun laying around. Here in Alabama, they arrest women when their babies test positive for trace amounts of drugs, but parents of kids who kill themselves or one of their friends while playing with guns get thoughts and prayers.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Lumping the military in with 2016-2017's "conservative apparatus" is a real low blow. Example A of pushback was Trump's order to remove all trans people from the military. Example B is the military ramping up war games with NATO as we speak. I'm not saying "it" CAN'T happen here...

The military brass would push back on that REALLY hard. Most especially anyone involved with recruitment, since that is one of their main recruitment pools, not to mention the enlisted soldiers themselves.
