I had a long post for you and then I lost it. I will have to come back to rewrite it. I know how scary this is for you, and how strongly you need to do something. I believe the best action plan will be more a change in perspective than anything else. My instinct is your son is feeling like no one un...

Most anti-vaxxers don't want to take away people's choice to have a vaccine, though some do. It's more the fact that when they see people promoting authoritarianism, they fear that authority will envelope them. Offering vaccinations - even mandating them - isn't about authoritarianism, it's about k...

Ideally it becomes a choice, with a zoom view available, similar to the natural fall out that has happened in thousands of offices nationwide, and similar to the way many professional continuing education seminars have operated for years now. Choice is always good. Having fewer students in the class...

There is some merit in your speculation, how faster implementation might have affected the election (and the pandemic). We'll never know for sure. He isn't dumb but he does usually react to the political winds, so I'm not sure what his play right now is. Is he saying it because he knows its the trut...

Dox47, I completely agree that none of those fees would go away if a state income tax was added. I've watched local taxes and fees explode over the past four decades, including in states that have a high state income tax. Things cost what they cost, and the never ending quest to lower taxes often e...

I doubt Cheney was talking about taxes when he said he was disappointed with the GOP leadership


True, we went off-topic. Someone mentioned taxes (not sure why) and, well, taxes are one of the things I geek out about. I'm officially a tax expert, after all.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but a lot of more conservative politicians and pundits have caught and died from COVID than Democrat ones. Masks aren't a solution, no one has ever claimed they are, but they do improve odds at little to no cost those asked to wear them. It's different when they aren't the ...

I'm looking at the gigantic amount of income tax I'm having to pay and expecting to probably have to pay a lot more next year. I don't know about you, but I'd have a much easier time with it if I felt the money was being well spent, as opposed to being frittered away by political interest groups. W...

Thanks for all the cool video you pulled up. Not going to watch the giant spider one, though ... you and I might not define "wonder" the same. I prefer to see it as a positive word, not one I'd apply to something that will totally freak me out! The Grand Canyon is very much worth the trip....

Republicans are also calling for Cuomo’s resignation . Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) said the governor should never consider himself above the law. So what exactly is the problem that I am saying republicans wanted him to resign and be impeached. I am merely stating the truth? Dox47 said: I'm not &q...

Taxation and regulations are a price we pay for living in a civilized society. As I'm sure you know the complaint of the common man is against over-taxation. That's certainly my complaint. I've been working for the same company for 22 years, and the only perk I have from that is accumulated vacatio...

Smart, educated people can differ on how to prioritize politics. When its all narrowed down to two choices, neither is ever perfect, and the hyper-partisanship of the current era makes it inevitable that parties will have to do some pandering to their nut cases.. I translate this to mean that "...

As far as I can tell, everyone has their foolish moments where they take off their mask. Most people seem to feel that for photos and speeches they can and should have their masks off; part of the time v distance equation as developed before omicron; I've never gotten comfortable with it, but the pa...
