In Major Order, Appeals Court Blocks Student Loan Forgiveness And Lower Payments For 8 Million Borrowers
  • I wonder if marketers realize I'm so desensitized to ads that I have no idea what any given one is even for. I'm just looking for a way to close the damn thing. If I can't, I leave the site entirely, still with no idea of what product or service they were trying to shove down my throat.

    Shirley I'm not the only one like this.

  • What a time to be "ALIVE"
  • It's about assets. In an economic crash, the 1% buys up the assets for pennies on the dollar, generally receiving an enormous government bailout in the process.

    Housing/real estate is the most obvious example of this over the past fifteen years or so.

  • Trump documents case dismissed by federal judge
  • I may look into the other genealogical direction. My daughter has skills that are globally in demand and she's probably more upset about America than I ever could be. Maybe there's a bring your parent along program out there somewhere.

    I'm fifteen years out from viable retirement. If I can hold on that long, there are several places I could go on my own accord.

  • Max Speed Limit by State
  • I've driven the entirety of that road one time. It ran me about twenty bucks in tolls. To do it once was worth it. With an 85 limit, most were pushing a hundred. I got down to San Antonio in a fraction of the time it would've taken via 35. I certainly wouldn't want to pay that on a daily commute though. I also don't think I'd want to navigate the speeds some of the more aggressive drivers were going. I did feel a little bit unsafe.

  • A little bit of patriotism - as a treat
  • To the since birth part, I was raised in a particularly fundamentalist cult/sect/denomination (hint: two high school classmates died in Waco) and attended their schools from first grade through high school.

    I graduated some thirty four years ago.

    Looking at classmates today in our fifties, the delineation is interesting. All of us either completely abandoned religion to the point of hostility toward it or became zealous adherents to it. Very little middle ground.

  • A little bit of patriotism - as a treat
  • You realize you're up against the tried and true no true Scotsman defense, right? You can point out the fallacy. You can present facts and logical arguments. Nothing penetrates the "you're talking about a few bad apples" argument.

    The part I always enjoy is to put any two Christians in a room together and watch them argue until the end of time which of them is the true Christian with the correct interpretation of the infallible word of God from their book. Even as a child I thought an omnipotent God should've provided a much clearer instruction manual. But of course, that gets the "he works in mysterious ways" defense.

    How do I find available communities?

    This seems like a good platform. How do I find communities to subscribe to? I've got maybe fifteen showing up as default, but don't know how to dig deeper.
