I bet they heard from a couple of their neighbors and found out that parents wanted kids bussed, and that taxpayers would foot the bill.
I doubt they factored lawsuits into it.
These are local school boards, not fortune 500 corporations.
Not sure that lawsuit would go anywhere.
Otherwise anytime any kid got hurt anywhere they would have been "on their way to school".
They're not *required* to take the bus now.
Or, we could, I don't know, fix the fucking tort system.
SCOTUS should eliminate all immunity for government...
We need to start adopting their buzz words.
If for no other reason than to demonstrate to people that they are meaningless.
"Texas just wants common sense protection for unborn babies, how can you argue with that" ?
Then the popular "Polls say that 99% of Democrats are against killing...
Been thinking about it. But they don't get very cool out here even if you dig them deep.
Will probably build one eventually anyway.
The climate out here will allow a much longer growing season if we irrigate so that will help though.
So, the solar company is putting in the panels and inverters and they are going to connect to a battery array I will provide. I'm going with a basic lead acid battery setup, haven't decided which batteries I'll build it with yet, but it's going to be 12V batteries, either 4 400Ah or 8x...
The left's entire argument hinges on the masses not understanding the difference between wealth, money, and income.
Sure the rich have almost all the wealth. That's why they're called wealthy.
But the middle class has all the income.
Actual money isn't all that relevant on a long term basis...
It's a corollary of the Mandela effect.
The only way for 70 million people to stop paying taxes would be to stop working.
You pay your taxes every time you get a paycheck. That thing on April 15th is irrelevant.
You can't just tell your employer to stop withholding taxes either.
Basically you are talking about a general strike...
Going with a pair of sol-ark 12k inverters and a 15Kw nominal array on the roof and a modest 400Ah 48v battery bank.
It can't run everything I want, but it should be able to run enough. The dual Sol-Arks will give me a hefty surge capacity for things like AC that draw a lot of power but have a...
Got my well drilling permit back from the state.
And have signed a contract for a 15kw solar plant for the roof.
If things get bad here, I'm not sure where you'd want to big out *to*. There might be some better locations in the middle of Montana or something, but I think we'll be pretty...
Well, the question "can I" is never appropriate.
If you possess a deadly weapon, you *can* use deadly force, for anything.
The question "may I" isn't the right one either. If deadly force is called for, then you'd better use it whether you have permission or not.
So, the proper question with...
Only a diplomat thinks you can "compromise" with the laws of physics.
"Sorry, an 18 inch beam is just too tall, do you think we can compromise and use a 14 inch ?"
No, dick, a 14 inch beam will collapse under that load. There is nothing you can offer it to change its mind...
It goes back at least as far as the first Clinton administration.
Seems to come up every time the left wants to spend money we don't have and the right manages to pull themselves together long enough to say "that's too insane even for us".
I think the media drags it out every time there is the "will we raise the debt ceiling" question.
I also don't think anyone ever takes it seriously, other than a few reporters who report on things they have no idea about.
Here's a few articles from the last few times this has come up. Note...
Don't know what his plan is, but my plan would involve shitcanning the 70% of the federal agencies that aren't authorized under the constitution.
That should solve the problem easily.
Bonus, it would solve the labor shortage too with all those guys looking for jobs.
A bunch of people with no...
Well, we would be back to 10 million humans living north of the Rio Grand pretty quick in that sort of world.
It's true though, the 350 million or so people we would lose would do a lot of damage in the month or so they would survive.
Most of them wouldn't make it out of the city though.
What about the guarantee for a speedy trial ?
Even if they are acquitted if all charges, Rittenhouse and the Jan 6th protesters have been run through "the system" for far too long.
The process *is* the punishment.
Compared to the original elecorate in the US the current one is actually very well educated.
Our system was originally designed with an uninformed largely illiterate populace in mind.
We have systematically eliminated all those safeguards.
From only landowners voting, to legislatures...
That's the thing about infestations of leftists.
You can't ever get rid of them one at a time.
It's like trying to eliminate your cockroach problem with a flyswatter.
No matter how many you dispatch, they're making new ones faster than you can swing.
NY passed the "tent and fumigate" stage...
I'm sure there were plenty of Jews who thought the same way about Germany in the late 30's.
NY state is already lost. There is no fight left to make there. By staying you are just wasting a vote/voice that could actually do something useful in another state.
Imagine if the British had taken...
You are correct about people being irrational.
But that doesn't change the fact that you *need* the vast majority or them to trust the system for it to work.
If at least 90% of the people don't trust the system to work, then you no longer have a government "of the people".
You will *have* to...
So, if voter ID is racist, why isn't requiring an ID to buy a gun ?
I *really* want someone to bring that lawsuit and cite one of these voter ID laws as precedent.
Even if all it accomplishes is to get a prosecutor to make the claim that the 2A is a lesser right than voting, that would be a...
