    Attempting to claim that isolation caused the death of a million Americans when we can measure, y’know, symptoms and physical damage from a virus, goes beyond simply being biased, or ignorant. You, sir, have achieved a remarkable level of idiocy or, to be fair, trollery if you expect anyone to believe that.

    If they both take each other out of the running – America.

    ONE MILLION deaths in the US is not “nothing.” And the vast majority of them were due to, or happened to, people like YOU who went unmasked and/or were unvaccinated.

    SIX MILLION deaths worldwide. And why does the US represent a disproportionate number of those deaths? People like YOU.

    And if you got it – and you don’t know, do you? – you could have passed it on to someone who was less resistant. Your selfishness could have caused numerous deaths, in fact – and you don’t even care.

    Fearful sheep? It’s not the sheep who followed the science. It’s the sheep who followed #45, who would have died of COVID were it not for brand-new medical therapies not then available to virtually any Americans, and then tried to pass it off as his superior manliness. Sure, right. Along with his false height, weight, and sexual prowess.

    Not solar, not wind, just nuclear? Seriously?

    Even leaving aside safety issues AND global warming, there are many reasons to promote solar and wind power.

    The cost of solar and wind has dropped steadily, as one would expect, and continues to do so. The cost of nuclear has not, and is highly unlikely to do so. Even if we finally get a handle on fusion (it’s been “ten years away” for over fifty years now), those plants are likely to be extremely expensive as well.

    Solar and wind provide individual power sources – it can free people from depending on power grids, especially in areas where they are more vulnerable.

    The reason Texas’ crap grid didn’t break down again last year is due to SOLAR power filling in the gap, which is not widely known, but should be. Yeah, the headquarters of the oil industry needed solar to save them.

    As a younger technology, there are more innovations possible – and happening now – with solar and wind. For example, there is a lot of work on bladeless wind turbines as well as other designs: Solar has been getting cheaper and easier to make year on year.

    I am not entirely hostile to nuclear, but it’s foolish to take ten years and tens of millions of dollars to build a new plant when you could provide a city full of people with equal power within a year for a fraction of the cost.

    Not a drag queen, a trans woman, as the woman in question corrected. Still, nice touch!

    Incorrect again, and you can not only see multiple links in the articles I cited to prove it, but a quotation IN THE POST ABOVE that says so. I will note again: some states use driver’s licenses, but “11% of voting-age Americans, disproportionately elderly and minority voters, lack the necessary papers.” If a law disproportionately affects certain categories of people, it is, by definition, discriminatory. If it disenfranchises legal voters, it is absolutely inappropriate.

    It is NOT a question of voter ID, and never was; it was the KIND of voter ID being used, and the laws being put into place that picked specific kinds that would exclude legal voters.

    Nope, wrong again! I will answer why. In fact, I did already, but the GoComics crash apparently eliminated it. (Also, I didn’t call you a coward, and I DID justify descriptions. RTFP.)

    Bottom line: If we provided Voter IDs at no expense to all voters without their having to ask for them, I’d be fine with it. But in fact the way they have been used is as a de facto poll tax.

    First of all: Voter ID is a solution to no problem. “Voter Fraud” as a major problem is simply a myth being used to justify Jim-Crow-style voter intimidation and harassment. The nonpartisan Brennan Center for Justice has a fine collection of research, which points out that the typical rate – studied by bipartisan groups, by the way – is between 0.0003 PERCENT and 0.0025 PERCENT, which means it has ZERO impact on elections.

    When you charge people for Voter ID or require them to go fill out paperwork they may not know about, it acts as a “poll tax,” which is illegal. “Some states insist that voters provide photo IDs such as driver’s licenses. But at least 11 percent of voting-age Americans, disproportionately elderly and minority voters, lack the necessary papers. Required documentation such as naturalization paperwork can cost as much as $200. By contrast, when the poll tax was declared unconstitutional in 1966, it was $1.50 ($8.97 in 2007 dollars).”

    Voter ID laws are block LEGAL CITIZENS from voting. If you don’t think that’s a problem, YOU are part of the problem.

    EVERY CITIZEN HAS THE RIGHT TO VOTE. Any law or organization (including the Supreme Court) making it harder for LEGAL CITIZENS to vote is trying to shut down democracy.

    And now the attempt to dodge by “whataboutism.” Man, learn some new tricks!

    Yeah, but what if he gets confronted on camera during a debate?

    Yeah, it’s a tradition of one – but precedent still matters to the lawyers, even if the initial precedent was idiotic. Except certain members of the Court, of course. #45 just seized the opportunity, and like everything else he does, used it without any pretense of honesty or legitimacy.
