  1. All kinds of things get introduced in the house. This is meaningless.
  2. Primaries lead to more extreme candidates winning and thus more polarized general elections
  3. The government would need to become trustworthy to regain public trust
  4. The vast majority of wealthy people were born into wealthy families. It is substantially easier to accrue wealth when you start with some than when you don't.
  5. The most proximate cause of the wealth gap in the US is the end of the de facto gold standard that came from the collapse of the Bretton Woods agreement. That increased currency speculation, burying the value of money in developing countries and making outsourcing of relatively high paying unskilled and semi-skilled jobs to those countries more profitable despite the attendant problems (shipping costs, security of proprietary information, lower productivity of workers, etc.).
  6. If he's reasonably healthy he'll run again. It's too soon to tell what his chances of winning will be.
  7. So many of them are spy movies, not my favorite genre. Cold War films I do like... The Bedford Incident Charlie Wilson's War The Death of Stalin Fail Safe The War Game (not to be confused with WarGames, also a fine film)
  8. For the record, the LP had a good showing. Jorgensen pulled a better percentage than Gary Johnson's 2012 run.
  9. That suggests his attributes should be even lower, since he got all that free media coverage and still finished 7th in popular voting.
  10. "Fetch me a fag and a rubber!" the English writer bellowed. He soon regretted hiring an American assistant.
  11. Should be "colors" in PI, "Colours" in PMI
  12. It's a waste of time and money. The election is over. Biden won. It's time to start the transition.
  13. Here's a list of candidates with ballot access in at least one state. Biden, Jorgensen, and Trump were on in every state plus DC. If that's too tiny to read, click here: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EnD-kFhW4AIIlE-?format=jpg&name=4096x4096
  14. He's now dropped behind de la Fuente and La Riva and is just ahead of Donald Blankenship of the Constitution Party
