  1. The president, AKA National Command Authority and Commander-in-Chief, cannot go to Congress every time a military action is necessary. That is why he is the C-I-C! There is a difference between a military strike in response to an attack on US forces or even our allies and authorizing an expensive, prolonged action. In this case, a proportional response to an unprovoked attack. Congressional approval would be warranted in the case of an invasion of another country or similar.
  2. I agree with this as far as restricting women's sports to biologic females.
  3. All the sources, including those in Texas state government and power industry, unequivocally state that the loss of wind and solar power providers had practically ZERO effect on causing Texas power outages. It was due to failures of nuclear, coal and natural gas power providers. Most importantly, it was due to a failure of Republican governors and state legislatures to effectively regulate the power industry in Texas. Aided and abetted by power companies run by Republican supporting executives. It happened in 85 or 86 and then again in 2011 and ALL were told it would happen again.
  4. You don't seem to be able to comprehend. Maybe you should stop trying to read this on a PHONE. Not disagreeing with your opinion, BUT AS I HAVE SAID THREE TIMES OR MORE BEFORE, EDDIE DID NOT EXPLAIN WHY IT IS A NOIR THAT PEOPLE SHOULD WATCH. What is so hard to understand about that????????
  5. About damn time! Get it done ASAP and fire DeJoy. Incidentally in yesterday's testimony, DeJoy told Congress that he will be around a long time -"get used to it."
  6. As I have stated at least twice already - Eddie did NOT state why it is a film noir or why viewers should watch it as a film noir. Others noted the same thing. I watch Noir Alley as much for Eddie's commentary as for the movies he picks as I have already seen most of them. That is where I learn why he thinks it is a significant noir and why it should be viewed.
  7. No, I said Eddie did not give an explanation of why it should be considered a Noir film. Others noted the same thing. I didn't watch it any longer because I found it boring.
  8. Because the OMB director has far more power than than the NSA.
  9. Another useless post that is a tweet and therefore has no substance that can be accessed here.
  10. Don't mean a thing. Trump would lie under oath as readily as he does not under oath.
  11. "Lies, damn lies" to quote a movie character. Trump did everything he could to avoid taking responsibility or actions on the Pandemic until he had no choice. Even then he did not really support any of the efforts to actually combat Covid. He made statements and recommendations that were false and endangering to peoples lives. Many died because of Trump. He placed his incompetent son-in-law in charge of distribution which is why we have so many problems now. Where is the Hell have you been for the last year????? And don't blame the Democrats because they inherited a disaster and
  12. MM always finds these obscure (in most cases) articles and posts them without attribution. Then he adds his comments which are usually untruthful and with sole purpose of building up Trump or attacking Democrats.
  13. May be the smartest move. Why put somebody in the job that will be relentlessly attacked from day one? There are a lot of other qualified people who will not be a distraction from Biden's goals. Also, a lot of other jobs she could do.
  14. Good news, but I doubt the American people will ever know what his returns actually show.
  15. I applaud your efforts, but does no good to try and explain anything to MM. He can't handle the truth, so he does not wish to learn it. I read somewhere (here maybe) that Griddy actually told its people to change providers because they knew the rates were going up astronomically. Personally, I cannot understand how an individual homeowner/business can just change providers in a day or so. Of course I live in one of the other 49 states.
  16. The fact it happened is true. Your implications that it only happened to Japanese AND that the Democrats were responsible is what is NOT true. And you know it. The Republicans agreed wholeheartedly with what FDR did-and probably would have done worse.
  17. The US also interred Germans and Italians during WW II, as well as Germans sent from Latin American for internment. The numbers were far less than the Japanese interred though. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internment_of_German_Americans#:~:text=During WWII%2C the United States,ethnic Germans%2C overwhelmingly German nationals.&text=Similarly%2C a small proportion of,total population in the US.
  18. I try to avoid your idiotic posts, but was interested in what Bogie said. Then I read your post. As usual you have it totally misconstrued. Do you think a Republican president would have done any differently? Of course not. What FDR did was wrong, but the times were what they were. Or as your hero would say: "It is what it is." What you copied from some unidentified, secret source is not inappropriate. YOUR comment below it is. Incidentally, most of the racism in the US today is the fault of Republicans.
  19. I listened to Eddie's intro and then watched about 20 or more minutes of it and then gave up. Eddie did not really give a reason for watching it as a Noir.
  20. As I understand it each voter can have more than two rankings?
  21. Failing party playbook: 1. Change the rules to improve their chances 2. Prevent those they disagree with from participating in the democratic process 3. Instill fear in their supporters if the ‘other’ side wins 4. No ideas, only power Georgia Republicans are doubling down on racist voter suppression After Black voters turned out in record numbers, the GOP wants to make it harder to vote. motherjones.com F
  22. As I noted in thread on Republican voter suppression, just one state of many. Even FL, where many GOPers use mail-in voting, is trying to change the rules. They have used mail-in voting for years and it has been very successful. In fact, it is what helped the GOPers build the majority they have in legislature now. Many of the retirees vote by mail and majority of them vote Republican. While the Dems had a huge mail-in vote majority over GOPers this time, much of it was fueled by the anti-Trump vote. Without Trump as the enemy will the Dems be as successful in the future in getting pe
  23. I agree on both points. Almost any other Republican would probably have won the 2020 presidential election. While Trump's base would not have come out, neither would the never Trumpers and those others vehemently opposed to Trump. As for AOC, she is a child of the media and will be as long as she is in office. She seeks it out and evidently enjoys it and knows how to use it for her benefit. She is enough of a politician to recognize that it helps to get her progressive message out, but also to keep her in the spotlight. Not saying she is not altruistic in her efforts to help
  24. For years, I have been telling my readers that they have got to have a back up plan for power, because during a major emergency the grid can fail. And when it fails, it can literally cost some people their lives. I was deeply saddened when I learned that one man in Texas actually froze to death sitting in his own recliner… Most Americans don’t realize that much of the rest of the world actually has much better power infrastructure than we do. Just check out these numbers… As our population has grown and our infrastructure
