    Capital Police to use Military grade surveillance equipment on U.S. citizens

    The fucking republicans are probably salivating over it. They think they stand a good chance of taking back both houses over the next few years.

    Capital Police to use Military grade surveillance equipment on U.S. citizens

    Yep. Nationwide police force controlled by Congress with ZERO oversight or control by any other branch or the People. And the House already passed a $1.9 Billion windfall for the Capitol Police.

    Factories struggle to employ workers and compete with fast food restaurants pay

    Generally, I don't think either of them need to be at $15 an hour necessarily. They need to be paid what the market will bear for unskilled labor. I could see manufacturing paying more, logically, because they generally require a set schedule and more hours. From a societal health point of...

    Factories struggle to employ workers and compete with fast food restaurants pay

    NY has to have a fucking calculator to figure out what your minimum wage is. That in and of itself is fucked up. Minimum Wage Lookup The icing on the cake is that, in most of NY, fast food is at $15 now and most of the rest seems to be at $12.50. In what world is fast food more important than...

    Current State Election Audits of 2020

    Good point. I doubt it's about machine integrity. It may be the start of a narrative to resist audits in other states. "The AZ audit messed up the voting machines and it cost [20] million to replace them. We don't have the [time and/or money] to do that. There's no way we can perform an audit...

    Current State Election Audits of 2020

    Interesting. This seems to be a political Rorshach test... or maybe TDS just gives it that appearance?

    Current State Election Audits of 2020

    Well that was a giant waste of time and I loath having given NBC watch time. It was just he said, she said. 'Our numbers are right, and I definitely won.' 'No, our numbers are right and you couldn't possibly have won.' It's the whole election argument in a nutshell. Why on earth did you post this?

    2021 Gardening Thread

    Thanks guys, I don't feel quite so bad now. We just got stuff in the actual garden a week ago. Some of the beds needed repairs so most of the plants spent a couple weeks on the deck in intermediate pots. Thanks to phatfarmerbob's advice about a heating mat, we have 50 tomato plants. 1 seed out...

    Visualizing change in ammo prices during covid

    I don't like how there seems to be convergence of several calibers at current prices. Most of them are still in a downtrend but 22 is already pretty level.

    State fair is back

    Normally there are both open and 4H competitions. You can enter the open class without 4H affiliation but you will be competing against adults that have aged out of 4H. My stepfather handled all of the admin stuff when I was a kid so I can't really help there. He was involved long after I moved...

    State fair is back

    I was on fairgrounds for an event this past weekend. Everything was outdoors but masks were supposedly required for all on the grounds. Bastards took and recorded everyone's temperature too. I did a bunch of the 4H stuff there when I was a kid. Now, fuck that place. Just one more decent thing...

    Now nuclear power is good? At least Bill Gates says so

    What's the deal with molten salt reactors that use thorium? That seems like the way to do nuclear power. Extremely low risk of meltdown, and much less waste to deal with.
