“The government” doesn’t want to argue that. Some idiot politicians do.

Just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed reading your take on Swift. Thanks for sharing. ☺️

Whoa, I haven’t seen that new guy. Gross. That doesn’t seem like a Nebula-type creator.

Thanks, I was wondering if Taylor Swift’s team won!

Do you have a source with numbers from before the pandemic? This site only includes numbers for the past four years, which have to have been increasing because immigration almost ground to a standstill in 2020-21. We need an accurate starting point in order to have this conversation.

Swift could easily be 6’5" in the right heals.

I would bet that tiger attack insurance for someone who brings a tiger with then in public would be astronomical.

The point is to put the burden of cost where it actually belongs. Instead of society footing the bill, now gun owners will pay into an insurance system that will cover costs in the event of damage.

Personal liability insurance exists. It’s often included in home or renter’s insurance. If someone knows they’re likely to end up in a lawsuit because they love punching people, it would behoove them to get that.

But the damage that can be done by a pair of fists is often a low enough dollar number (and jail time) that it can reasonably be paid by the person owning them. A broken orbital socket is a hell of a lot cheaper than, say, three people’s lives. There’s also unlikely to be collateral damage with fists, since they can only travel so far. Most people can’t pay for the damages in a shooting event, and right now that cost is instead being covered by taxpayers.

Insurance isn’t for the small things, like a broken window or punching someone. It’s for very expensive, sometimes catastrophic damage.

Psychiatric wards in Korea filled up with depressed teens and 20-somethings (www.chosun.com)

Shin (14), a middle school student in Daegu has been addicted to gaming for years. He stayed up all night in his room playing games. He was always late for school, and his friends teased him, calling a “game otaku(maniac)”. Shin blamed himself for being “someone unnecessary.” Late last year, he was diagnosed with severe...

For my generation, it was mostly TV. Same for Xers and Boomers, though they were also allowed to roam with no adult supervision. The habit of neglecting children is ingrained in our society, and computers are just the newest method.

I’m thinking it’s a way of treating Taiwan more like other countries we deal with, rather than treating them as a part of China.

“Subtitle B – United States-Taiwan Tax Agreement Authorization Act Because the U.S. is unable to enter into a bilateral tax treaty with Taiwan due to Taiwan’s unique status, subtitle B provides authorization to the President to negotiate and enter into a U.S.-Taiwan tax agreement that includes provisions generally conforming with those customarily contained in U.S. tax treaties.”

A State Supreme Court Just Issued the Most Devastating Rebuke of Dobbs Yet (slate.com)

The Supreme Court’s eradication of the constitutional right to abortion in 2022’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization had an immediate and devastating impact on gender equality in the United States. With a single ruling, five justices wiped out millions of women’s access to basic health care and handed control...

But first the democrats should do their duty and pass federal laws allowing access to safe abortions.

How, honey? Seriously, lay out for me how you think this happens with the current makeup of Congress.

You should probably ask the people of Puerto Rico if they even want to be a state, first.

The 'God's army' convoy traveling to Texas to stop migrants has seen a vehicle get lost, tires slashed, and someone stranded on the highway: report (www.businessinsider.com)

A convoy of vehicles headed to Texas, organized by a group called “Take Our Border Back,” has had a chaotic start, including slashed tires and a stranded participant, according to WIRED....

This headline is the opposite of clickbait. The details are amazing!

“WIRED reported that, at one point, the convoy’s main bus pulled over onto a highway shoulder and kicked out one of the passengers.

It was unclear why the man was ejected, but he was left stranded in Florence, South Carolina, without his wallet, according to details from a livestream of someone in contact with the man.”

Ha, that was my dream car when I was 16! Or an RX7, I think it was called.

It’s the result of manipulation from the true evil actors, those in the billionaire class.

So help them vote. Volunteer with efforts to get out the youth vote. Push for universal mail in voting where you are, or at least early voting. Help get politicians and initiatives on the ballot that they actually care about.

Shaming and complaining about the demographic you want to reach accomplishes nothing.

I know one! She’s on a local city council.
