The economy is thriving under Biden. So why don’t Americans believe it?
  • It's not simply that it was absorbed by another ministry. 5 unrelated ministries were gutted and combined into an ineffective mishmash, incapable of doing any of the duties previously required.

    Here's your second source:

    https://www.theartnewspaper.com/2023/12/15/javier-milei-does-away-argentina-culture-ministry

    "Several other ministries were downsized and recombined into new entities. The Ministry of Social Development, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security will be pared down into a newly formed Ministry of Human Capital, headed by the former TV producer Sandra Pettovello."

    And, yeah, putting a TV producer in charge of what used to be 5 governmental ministries? Seriously?

  • The economy is thriving under Biden. So why don’t Americans believe it?
  • https://www.as-coa.org/articles/explainer-whos-who-javier-mileis-cabinet

    "Milei’s cabinet is smaller than usual, fulfilling his pledge to shrink the number of ministries. There were 18 ministries; now there are nine. The ministries of education; labor, employment, and social security; and social development are all now the ministry of human capital."

    I would call downsizing it to the point of irrelevancy and combining it with 4 other ministries under a new name does constitute eradication.

  • Filtered window fan?
  • Oh, agreed, but some places limit the use of window ACs.

  • Is it theoretically possible for Windows 11 to delete pirated content on your PC?
  • I would be more concerned about it deleting legally owned content that, for whatever reason, is no longer licensed.

    For example:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/18/technology/companies/18amazon.html

  • Finally someone agrees with me on The Shining
  • If Kubrick were a REAL auteur, he wouldn't have needed to adapt other works into films.

    With the exception of one of his very early films, all of them were based on pre-existing material.

    Even 2001 was based on Arthur C. Clarke short stories that were merged and expanded into 2001 with the cooperation of Clarke.

  • Filtered window fan?
  • I like the portable AC units, you get AC AND filtering.

    Just make sure you get a dual hose version. One hose is air intake, other hose is air exhaust.

  • Out shopping, found this:
  • Too much sugar for me, did not try it!

  • Trump told donors he will crush pro-Palestinian protests, deport demonstrators
  • That doesn't change the fact that the next President will be either:

    Self proclaimed zionist, Joe Biden:

    https://www.reuters.com/world/us/i-am-zionist-how-joe-bidens-lifelong-bond-with-israel-shapes-war-policy-2023-10-21/

    The literal pro-Genocide candidate, Donald Trump:

    https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/maddowblog/trumps-hardline-position-us-policy-gaza-matters-rcna150391

    “We have to let Israel complete their war on terror. It’s a horrible thing, but they have to do it.” Trump added that Israel must “clean out the cancer.”

    There are no other viable candidates. The only thing stopping one of these men from becoming President is a massive health event.

    Should it be Trump, things will not only be devastating for Gaza, they will become a nightmare here:

    https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-compares-political-opponents-vermin-root-alarming-historians/story?id=104847748

    "Trump compares political opponents to 'vermin' who he will 'root out,' alarming historians"

    "Trump Is Planning to Send Kill Teams to Mexico to Take Out Cartel Leaders"

    This is why it's contingent on everyone who cares to hold their nose and vote for Biden. The alternative is a disaster.

  • After Libertarians reject RFK Jr., what does success look like for third-party candidates?
  • The only time a protest vote makes sense is if your state is going to have an overage anyway.

    I voted Nader in 2000 as well due to:

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tipper_Gore

    and:

    https://www.ign.com/articles/joe-lieberman-outspoken-video-game-critic-mortal-kombat-obituary

    But I also knew, in my state, voting for Nader made zero difference.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000_United_States_presidential_election_in_Oregon

    Aaaand it didn't.

    Multnomah Gore - 188,441 - 63.52%
    Bush - 83,677 - 28.20%
    Nader - 21,048 - 7.09%

  • Hoo hoo.
  • Nobody cares for the America's Best owl who chose optometry.

  • Out shopping, found this:
  • I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.

  • Democrats plan to nominate Biden virtually to avoid missing Ohio's ballot deadline
  • Alabama this cycle as well, although they did pass the exception to allow Biden:

    https://apnews.com/article/biden-ballot-access-alabama-ohio-2c802f24e4b88a359c84b180f0e363ec

    Not that it matters, because Biden will not win either Alabama or Ohio.

  • One explanation for the 2024 election’s biggest mystery, a theory for why Biden is struggling with young and nonwhite voters
  • Every time he opens his mouth he invalidates their concerns? Ya think?

    "The economy sucks!"

    "What are you talking about? The economy has never been stronger..."

  • Found a t-shirt today...

    Can't remember the store, but the slogan is searchable.

    Good episode, maybe a little obvious where it was going. Way too much unexplained.
