    Cuban sold his soul for money. I am an extreme capitalist, but nothing in this world works without morality and honesty to mitigate profit motive or self interest.. Cuban has neither

    My view on this is evolving
    On the one hand, I enjoy seeing people wake up to liberal disasters and fleeing.
    On the other, I fault them for then trying to change the place that was so great they wanted to go there to begin with

    Let's all hope and pray Elon is right. The Left for their part is trying to shoo them off.

    Anybody see Pramila Jayapal's "questioning" of Barr? She's another nut job brought to you courtesy of the state of Washington. Barr wasn't even able to rebut her crazed rant. Disgraceful performance. If I was Barr, I wouldn't go back to Congress again.

    Is this fixing it?

    1) Open borders, benefits for illegal aliens, abolishment of the enforcement arm, amnesty for DACA kids (the only thing I actually support in this grocery list of vote buying) and general pandering to the Hispanic tribe (racial politics).
    2) Reparations (do we end all set asides, affirmative action and provide a credit against the reparations for the trillions already spent on racial equalization?)
    3) Defunding and demonizing the police.
    4) The absolute destruction of patriotism and attacks on those who merely wish to wave a flag on the 4th of July?
    5) The white privilege campaign which is the modern day equivalent of Hitler's attacks and blame on the Jews for the ills of the nation?
    6) Appointment of SCOTUS Jurists who will CLEARLY rule from the bench and rubber-stamp the political desires of the Democrat party? Can anyone imagine a John Roberts type scenario from the Left where their made as instructed appointee achieves an interesting balance, irrespective of who nominated them?
    7) Formally labeling Christians (right-wing white Christians) as a hate group?
    8) The continued use of immigration as a tool against Republicans by allowing fundamentalists from the ME and uneducated Catholics (pro-life, anti-gay, macho culture) to enter our nation even though the demographic of both groups is an anathema to feminists?
    9) Absolute quota's to equalize outcome?
    10) The virtue signaling and political correctness campaigns that will create a nation of block captains who will cancel and destroy ANYONE not openly parroting the company line.
    11) The cultural influence of leading sports figures such as Popovich, James and Kerr, who attack Trump with venom while giving a pass to China.

    I don't see much from the Left that is not completely tied to buying votes and winning elections and they're doing it in a vile and vicious manner.

    I'll play.
    1. I mostly agree with you.
    2. I'm good with some form of reparation via education but not much else.
    3. Re-funding the police by providing them with more social resources.
    4. Patriotism will not die regardless of who wins. Can we get on the same page with confederate flags?
    5. No comment.
    6. The Court is 6-3. The most that will happen is a migration to 5-4.
    7. Liberals are Christians too. The middle eastern carpenter might have been on board with some social programs. I wish we taught more of the Beautitudes.
    8. Immigration is a bigger problem to you than it is to me.
    9. See #8.
    10. We will see some push back on the cancel culture, I think.
    11. Trump is giving China a pass as well.

    I'll play.
    1. I mostly agree with you. [Awesome]
    2. I'm good with some form of reparation via education but not much else. [That's fine but I wonder what that would actually entail]
    3. Re-funding the police by providing them with more social resources. [I'm good with that. I remember Serpico. I don't have an unconditional love for the police. I have some very good friends who were policemen in Laredo and they were appalled by the Floyd matter. Those are the type of people we need to hear from. I still think it's easy to say we need to change the culture, but if the criminal element (of all colors) continues to behave as usual, then can we achieve a true super cop with the moral strength and courage to approach every suspect as if they are innocent and not as if they have a gun waiting for them?}
    4. Patriotism will not die regardless of who wins. Can we get on the same page with confederate flags? [Absolutely I'm on the same page as you concerning the confederate flags and monuments too.]
    5. No comment. [I think this is what we are seeing. White people are being demonized all over the internet. I'm not saying the gas chambers are next. I'm saying white people are now under the microscope and the vast majority are being told their decades of hard work and personal responsibility don't mean squat. I resent that with all my being.]
    6. The Court is 6-3. The most that will happen is a migration to 5-4. [From a current and practical matter, you are correct. From a long game perspective, I think what I said is the game.]
    7. Liberals are Christians too. The middle eastern carpenter might have been on board with some social programs. I wish we taught more of the Beautitudes. [I agree on all of that. I don't know that Jesus spoke of government action. He came here to talk to us individually. The plank in our own eye. Giving (not by force). He never went to Rome and made demands. That didn't seem to be his purpose.]
    8. Immigration is a bigger problem to you than it is to me. [Doesn't mean I'm wrong and the hypocrisy is pretty bad in my book. It's a huge deal in South Texas where the ranchers are having to open carry due to coyotes and their human cargo crossing illegally: trespassing, property damage, threats etc. Not a peep from the Left]
    9. See #8. [My point is hypocrisy. Fundamentalist Muslims and Catholic men from Mexico are the exact opposite of green feminism. Yet, we see how they are being used.]
    10. We will see some push back on the cancel culture, I think. [I hope so. Al Franken should lead that push-back.]
    11. Trump is giving China a pass as well. [Maybe, but I don't get the arrogance of the people I mentioned in the face of their enabling of China's despotic (TRUE DESPOTISM) as a communist nation and world bully.]

    Thank you.

    I can say I don't have all the answers. I'll look at this more later. Thanks for the friendly back/forth.

    Sure. I don't want any conflicts.

    I guess I'm alarmed by the anger of AOC and Harris. The sanctimony of Beto and Warren. The tribalism (in my opinion) of Sotomayor. The clear position of Bernie in the middle of Communism and Socialism. The general feeling that mastery of virtue signaling your social activist position qualifies you to be the President of the greatest military and economic super power in the history of the world. The open courting of voters with money (as I've mentioned).

    I don't trust this anger with our nation, flag and anthem. I don't trust the normalization of full-time activists/protesters or the anarchy of destruction. I don't care about the confederate stuff (good riddance) but I don't trust a mob. EVER. And the idea that to question them is to be a racist on par with Robert Byrd's old self is sickening to me.

    A tale of two candidates
    This is PA17 (northwest Penn, outside Pittsburgh)-- I think this is the district that the court forced to be redrawn in 2018)
    Sean Parnell vs. Conor Lamb (R)
    A clear contrast has been presented to voters

    Can you guess which one is Lamb?

    California seems to have finally realized that each year more and more of its educated citizens are fleeing the state due to their bad political policies.
    In response, instead of some solid self-examination, they are working on legislation that would allow them to tax former citizens who have left for 10 years.
