    My side? Have I presented some unrealistic plan? Isn’t the old talking point (sarcasm) that you presented unrealistic? Certainly so if one has a bit of knowledge of...

    Biblically, we are all bad apples. If Christians weren’t bad apples, they wouldn’t need a Christ.

    Well not normally. I suppose in an act of sabotage it would be quite effective to unload a mag into the cockpit. That’s what these clowns don’t understand. If winning any...

    If an F-16 is the ultimate weapon , why would an F-16 pilot carry a 9mm handgun? To shoot down Migs? How many fighter aircraft in WW2 were shot down with sidearms? Not zero,...

    Is everyone getting tired of buying 10 ounces of something in a 16 oz. sized bag for triple the price? I bought some boxes of candy for a gift to a relative in the hospital....

    LOL. Nobody is discounting “results” of science. I’m simply attempting to get you to reject fallacy. Logical fallacies are….get this…rejection of logic. And logic is...

    LOL. More fallacy with no science from you. Nobody in this conversation has said or implied coral will not and is not affected by acidification. Because nobody has made any...

    Thought I’d add a little more science to counteract the UN corruption of science and fallacy that is polluting the thread. Another serious concern with coral health and...

    The narrative you follow is dishonest. I deconstructed your cite on coral as incontrovertible evidence this is accurate to claim. You CHOSE a source that was intentionally...

    Looking into the reasons is great. As long as we accept biological science as a foundation, not voting habits. The problem is our public health sector isn’t interested in...

    You do realize death rates of Covid in urban areas are lower than in rural areas? I don’t think you are looking at facts as much as how you want things to be. There are...

    I used the 2019 time point rather than the 2020 time point for my calculation. Why? Because 2020 Black Friday spending was artificially inflated due to the government...

  33. 557 replied to the thread if the economy is bad, why were there record sales last weekend??.

    Oh, I agree the spending in 2020 isn’t indicative of a strong economy. It’s an indictment of the folly of trying to spend our way out of problems. If the only strong positive...

  34. 557 liked Quantum Nerd's post in the thread if the economy is bad, why were there record sales last weekend??.

    That's a good point. However, the amount of 2023 holiday spending is up 7.5% from 2022, not 2020. Prices have increased by 20% since October 2019 (that's a better indicator...
