    Yeah that’s a stupid answer nobody actually believes, especially coming from Democrats.

    It’s a stretch coming from a Federalist Society member, but completely ridiculous when it comes to the party that prides itself on crapping all over federalist principles.

    Good lord. Why don't people support something they've never shown any interest in supporting? I don't know. Why don't you ask them? Or you can just make up a reason.

    I love the disagree from folks apparently intellectually unable to explain them. There ought to be a requirement that those responses and come on man must be accompanied by an explanation. I've never been in a group discussion at work or elsewhere where someone who says "I disagree" isn't immediately met with "why?". That's especially true with come on man, which is a derogatory insinuation that demands an explanation.

    I don't understand why this site doesn't have that requirement. As it is, I just end up ignoring those who chronically post such responses.

    Demand did go up while supply was down. That is sorta the point.

    I don't think making it a requirement is possible. GC doesn't have a proprietary software. It is a common forum software used by all sorts of forums and message boards web wide. GC is bound to it's limitations.

    Your point is a good one though, and I say that as someone guilty of the occasional drive by rating.

    I’m guilty of it too! I guess I was think about those who do it ad nauseum.

    Thanks for the clarification about the software. I thought GC had its own.

    Demand didn't go up until 2021. When everything was shut down in 2020, demand collapsed.

    Semantics. It was all a residual impact from the shutdowns.

    Again, not even taking a right/wrong position, I am just speaking about economics.

    A claim on causation without evidence is not a matter of semantics. You claimed that a loss of demand shut down ports and airports (not really true) which caused inflation and then made the claim that local shutdowns caused the inflation (without evidence and contrary to Economic theory).

    As always, Trumpy Nikk is vile.

    Nikki Haley took a purple pen, crouched down in a tactical vest and signed an artillery shell while visiting Israel this week. “Finish Them!” she wrote.

    "War is neato and super rilly fun when your cheering for the side most people like, even though they're killing tons of civilians!" she also said. (OK, no she didn't, but she felt and meant it.)

    "Hopefully this gets me into the cabinet of the criminal rapist who bad mouthed US veterans! " she also didn't say, but meant.

    Yet all the libs still remind us of "mission accomplished" and how Dubya didn't "finish" Al-Qaeda.

    Seems your outrage is selective.

    (My post is not a defense of the orange criminal btw, but of Israel)

    I rarely rate a post and then respond because the response provides enough clarity that you dont need a rating. Imagine if people did that for "likes" or "winners". Just my opinion but ratings dont need an explanation.

    I do not think that Nikki Haley making light of the war in Gaza, and choosing to strike a pose of laughable false bravado really has much to do with what the left may have criticized George W. Bush for.............20 years ago. In fact, if anything, I recall that criticism of Bush being for a similar photo op that dismissed the gravity of war.

    Whether he completed the task was pretty irrelevant to his posing.

    None of which has anything to do with Trumpy Nikk shamelessly posing here. But then, hte Trumppublicans have made a great deal of political hay out of this invasion of Gaza.



    Edit : Also, I'd be similarly disappointed with a Dem politician posing in a war zone AND similarly making light of the conflict. Like signing a shell "Kick some a$$, Ukraine!!" (Even though the Ukraine defending themselves is different from the war crimes Israel is committing.) But that hasn't happened, has it?

    So no, my outrage is not selective.

    So the ships circling in the ocean because there were no workers on the docs or truck drivers to accept the goods was a figment of my imagination? Had not as much to do with closed stores as it did that people weren't there to move and accept the goods, not to mention other countries were closed down as well where we were getting those goods. How long does it take to "recoup" from what, three of four months of being closed? It's been 4 years! Margins have been hugh for these corporations and they didn't want to part with it. Do you blame them?

    Personally, I would have no problem with providing noncitizens lawfully admitted with permanent residence the right to vote. Lawfully admitted permanent resident immigrants are required to pay tax and much more significantly are required to register for the draft and if conscription was ever reinstated they could be drafted in the military and could end up paying the ultimate sacrifice for the United States as they did in both World Wars, Korea and Vietnam. For obvious political reasons its extremely unlikely that Congress would enact legislation allowing noncitizens to vote in Federal elections.

    Its all true. But to say it wasnt from shutdowns is nonsense. It started with the shutdowns and worked its way out.
