  1. This article basically blows gaping holes in the whole 'white privilege' bullshit that the woke Left likes to blather on about. It demonstrates that the biggest correlation to poverty in America is not race, but marriage. Poor black people who married before having children had the same rate of poverty as poor whites who married. And the biggest certainty for getting and staying out of poverty was to finish high school, get a job and get married before having kids. https://quillette.com/2019/10/16/why-white-privilege-is-wrong-part-2/
  2. He wants a new TV. Promise him a new TV.

  4. A Cambridge student asks Jordan Peterson a carefully thought-out and enunciated question on whether the world will pull together now to fight climate change. "No." Peterson gives a short, concise, educated answer on just what the world can and cannot do about climate change and global warming.
  5. I think this is an excellent example of giving a snapshot of the kind of place where Trump still gets support, mostly rural, with hard-working people who simply don't follow the news very much because they're busy with their own lives. According to a recent Ipsos poll, 36% of Americans didn't know what to think about the Syrian situation. An earlier YouGov poll had the number at 41%. Conversations with attendees at the Circleville Pumpkin Show the day after the Democratic debate bore these numbers out. College student Sierra Arrar said she doesn't follow the news. Lauren Esteph, who works for a local "good news" newsletter called the Dimple Times, said she tries to stay unplugged from negative things. Retired schoolteacher Spiro Spantithos said he was following the story and that he thinks the US should have kept troops in the area to ensure stability. "I don't believe in deploying troops that are helter-skelter," he said, "but when it comes to having security so that we're not worrying about somebody doing something crazy, we have to have something like that." Spantithos was the exception, however. Most at the Pumpkin Show were like Danny Evans, a construction labourer, who said he was too busy with work. "I leave at 4:30 in the morning, and I get home at 6:30 or 7:00 at night. I eat dinner with my kids, and I go to bed, and get up and go again." https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-50100808
  6. Let's add this into the mix too. “My wish is that we continue to increase levels in our immigration system for refugees. I’m very open to saying that, and I will do whatever I can, in whatever position I am in, to continue to push for higher refugee numbers every single year,” our Somali Immigration minister.

  8. I don't think, in this context, they mean 'educated' as in 'someone with a university degree' as opposed to 'someone who has taken the time to learn and understand the issues'. I've met and worked with a lot of university grads who are dumb as a bag of hockey pucks when it comes to political and economic issues facing the country, and kind of proud about paying little to no attention to politics. Like it's beneath them or something.
  9. I think the biggest danger to society is the uneducated, uninformed voter. They're easily swayed by things like names and faces and the occasional sound bite they've caught on the radio. They know little or nothing about the complexities of the issues. When you see the three main parties basically waving fistfuls of dollars around and promising the world for votes, you know they're appealing to the ignorant voter. We would be better off with far fewer voters if they were informed and thoughtful.
  10. Why on EARTH would you think that?!
  11. That was how I understood clubs were to be run, yes. If someone goes off the reservation I can just delete the posts.
  12. Not ALL of them, though, right? People can insult each other and curse in clubs...
  13. They are partly French, partly native. You're moved way over onto the far Left on almost every social issue. With that comes a vast intolerance of different views, which is why you were harassing someone. Their behaviour was not egregious nor their views out of step with others here. You simply didn't like their views, much as you don't like mine. You should go back to your protected safe space where no conservatives are allowed. You're happier there, unchallenged in your assumption virtually everyone agrees with you. BTW, Let me allow a brief LOL about the idea that your outrage at my saying you want to censor opposing views caused you to censor my posts on your feed.
