    Wuhan Coronavirus epidemic spreads from China to US

    US has 5% of the world population and 30% of the worlds wealth, 42% of the worlds guns, 17% of the worlds top 1,500 universities. Belgium has 0.15% of the population but 0.84% of the deaths. These all statistically mean nothing and are neither causal or correlated. The only things that have...

    100,000 cases of coronavirus already in Ohio

    Another big issue with the way Fauci and CDC keep pushing the new normal or wait until 2022 is how much it hurts the push for vaccination. If one can't return to normal or go maskless after the vaccine what's the incentive. From minorities to the elderly, across the political spectrum, there is...

    Paid (well) to be a junkie?

    But we are paying for the social safety nets and extra government services regardless. Right now, its a large police force with budgets driven mostly by pensions, enforcing laws through violence and locking people up. Some offenders will get rehab and recovery services and other won't, a...

    Paid (well) to be a junkie?

    No MSM has endorsed legalizing drugs. The only media that has easier either far left or Libertarian. Vice on the left and Reason Magazine on the Libertarian are about as close to Mainstream that has actually had any real sustained support for ending the War on Drugs. And yes most people are...

    Paid (well) to be a junkie?

    Yes, a government that open murders its citizen for non-violent offenses should be the example to follow. And a government under heavy influence from the Chinese Communist party can be trusted to not lie about their numbers. Or you know you could be like Portugal and treat people with respect...

    Catholic schools in US hit by unprecedented enrollment drop

    The OP was complaining about Private schools "bribing" politicians for more money. Which is true, and even more so for public schools. You also missed where the words were changed in the quote to reflect public school language.

    Is it Time = Balanced Budget Amendment and Re-Establish Constitutional Limitations on Federal Spending

    Correct. No Freudian slip, its just mind-boggling that within a decade we gone from arguing over billon dollar budgets and stimulus in the Bush and Obama administrations to seeing Biden considered the centrist because his budgets are still only in the 13 figure numbers. The sheer size of these...

    Catholic schools in US hit by unprecedented enrollment drop

    The exact same thing can be said of public schools. Money isn't the problem. A one-size fits all model based on a 19th German socialist social programs hasn't adapted to the modern world, public or private. Private schools advantage is that they have more parents who care not that they have more...

    Catholic schools in US hit by unprecedented enrollment drop

    Yeah, it seems if anecdotally every day there is a new article about private schools seeing a rise at the expense of public school enrollment. Seems that it might be in larger, metropolitan areas, which are more likely to be closed, we are seeing a big switch from public to private. With...

    Is it Time = Balanced Budget Amendment and Re-Establish Constitutional Limitations on Federal Spending

    After a Trump budget of 5.4 trillion and Biden proposing 1.9 Trillon as first step stimulus to his budget it's clear no politician actually cares about long-term fiscal responsibility. The nature of politics is only to focus on the immediate short-term gains that help politicians get elected...

    Democratic senators introduce bill to limit Section 230 protections

    They are not going to. Big Business always welcomes regulation because it favors the status quo. Regulatory capture is always inevitable, no doubt the advisors or lobbyists who will actually shape any bill, or more likely, department regulation will come from the big businesses. The "experts"...

    Wealth Tax Cometh

    When originally proposed the federal income tax was only on the top 1%. Giving the government that kind of power will only eventually lead it to be expanded. Pretty sure this type of tax is unconstitutional anyways. The effectiveness of these types of tax is pretty weak as well. Most countries...

    Wealth Tax Cometh

    Because people making under $40,000 a year are the ones most likely to bear the biggest burden of the economic impact of raising the minimum wage. A small percentage will now make a little bit more and at the expense of a larger percentage of those who no longer have a job opportunity. This is...

    Harriet Tubman $20 bill was set for 2020. Now Trump administration says not til 2026

    This is a not an issue and just a petty partisan squabble that was only ever made an issue because Trump idolized Andrew Jackson. The real discussion should be removing all persons or at least politicians/ government officials from money. It only serves to further the idolization of people and...

    100,000 cases of coronavirus already in Ohio

    While Trump can take blame from a PR standpoint, the absolute failures of the CDC are abundant and symptom of bureaucracy and the stubbornness of entrenched science. The incompetency at the CDC was made super obvious before the pandemic when the CDC went all out against all forms of vaping being...

    Excess Deaths

    I would add that this has been a huge gap in what is actually "science" and which softer science are more rooted to individual interpretation and personal politics. As well as the vast difference between a doctor working in a lab, a doctor working with patients, and a doctor who works in an...

    25th Amendment time

    Nope, her actions since the beginning of the nomination process made that clear who she is. Tulsi just made it obvious to the masses. She literally went from MCA to against in less than 24 hours when it turned out not to be as popular in the nomination process. She literally lied about smoking...

    25th Amendment time

    Harris is literally whatever gives her the most power and praise. She has no real ideology other than power and control. As a prosecutor that's being the worst of the worst kind of cop. As a Senator that expanding the size and scope of government and pandering the constituency that reassures...

    Democrats: The Obamacare Lie and the Radical Left Healthcare Plan= "Healthcare for All"

    I mean we already have 2 government run healthcare plans - Medicare and Medicad and they are the largest drivers of a federal budget that is already deeply in debt. We could cut the entire defense budget and take all of the billionaires money and still not be able to fund the government as it...

    UC Bearcats 2020

    Freeman interviewing with LSU and Notre Dame, Auburn and Texas also thought to be in pursuit. Not sure if UC can keep him unless his ties to Ohio are strong enough or he'll only leave for a HC job, or if Fickell provides him with some large incentive or coach in waiting plan.
