We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

The Trump administration is doubling down on its view that transgender female drag queen athletes are taking away opportunities from cisgender normal girls in violation of Title IX, and it argues that the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision that federal anti-discrimination law protects transgender sexually deviant employees does not alter that equation.
There, I fixed it for them.
To those mathematicians grappling with the reality that some problems have no solution, I say hand it off to a politician. Politicians know that all problems are soluble if you just give them more money and more power, there's nothing that government can't accomplish. Controlling the global climate, creating an infinite supply of free healthcare, fairly redistributing all the wealth in the world, it's all child's play to these omniscient and omnipotent gods who dwell among us mere mortals.
You nailed it: the problems a politician can solve with other folks' money!
Now Joe Bidden, taking a page from Obummer's play book, is promising to control the weather?
I continue to pray that the American people are not really this gullible. Unfortunately, I think they are. If not, they would have ripped off the stupid masks by now.

Re: Antifa and BLM, the Democrat party's stormtroopers
I would have said "Brownshirts." They become stormtroopers if they take power.
...and the brownshirts were the useful idiots that were later dispatched with as they were a threat to the "party".
“As Four Alleged Arson Suspects are Arrested for Wildfires, Media Fans the Flames of Climate Change”
Can’t even call it “anthropogenic” Cause those are not humans. They are leftoxenomorphs.

“Antifa and BLM, the Democrat party's stormtroopers”
A prelude to war doesn’t last forever.
There comes a time when you have to do what you should or understand that your choice, by default, is surrender.
You can have one or the other but you can’t avoid them both because although you may not be interested in war, war is interested in you.
The “point of view” of leftoxenomorphs is like the point of view of an ant.
We don’t have to consider it.
Think of the “Alien” monsters.
Who gives a thimble of sh!t for THEIR opinions?
We just can’t coexist.
We have to kill them.
It’s us or them.
It’s the only way to be sure.
We should focus on that and act accordingly.
Math is hard! There are a lot of 'Hard problems'.
Here's one that can be solved.
The new Chief of a large Indian tribe decided that he need a few wives.
The first squaw he asked said: I will but I need a deer skin to sleep on. He got her one.
Same thing happened with the second one.
When he approached the third one who was the most beautiful one in the tribe she said: I will but I'm special; You must give me a Hippopotamus hide to sleep on.
The first two wives each had sons.
Then the third wife had twin sons.
Which proves that the sons of the squaw on the Hippopotamus is equal to the sons of the squaws on the other two hides.
Trump should invite that female deputy to the White House.
...as a member of his Presidential Security Detail. I suspect the Secret Service pays better than the LA County Sheriff's Department.
When Math Gets Impossibly Hard: Life's a bitch and then you die.

Re: U of Chicago English Dept Won't Accept Anyone Unless They're in Black Studies
It doesn't matter to me what sort of rules the University of Chicago wants to make. They can do whatever they like. There is, however, one thing that I would like to see: A chart which students can use to pick a school; ranked by philosophical position. But you'll never see that chart, because our communist government doesn't want the kids to have a choice.
There is only one correct answer: Communism. And immortality.
I am beginning to suspect that the real purpose of BLM and all that rioting/looting, etc. Has really been created to establish a test battlefield--to battle harden members of a particular group to be prepared to come into physical confrontation with the rest of this country. BLM is a training ground for more physical/person/one on one confrontation. They are training these young people to do hand to hand combat--to harm other human beings--just as if they had been trained by the army.
Macy's could have their parade if they'd just call it a Peaceful Protest.
As I've said before, they're not anti-fascist; they're people who think the wrong fascists are in charge.
As to math, there's two kinds of un-solvability. In problems like constructing a square with the same area as a given circle the downfall happens because of something fundamental to the system of mathematics itself, here the irrationality of pi.
Policy problems tend to be unsolvable for a different reason. Typically they involve trying to come up with a statement of the problem that all players can agree on. Otherwise you get trying to simultaneously optimize multiple variables in an n-dimensional space, where even what "n" equals is not clearly defined. It's the problem of getting three people to agree on a pizza expanded to six billion people and an entire economy.
"Democrat party's stormtroopers"
Much like the KKK was, way back when.
With regard to the University of Illinois English Department.
man was the leading organizer, department chair and bully for many years.
He was also the primary force for the
AAUP --American Association of University Professors. This is the self appointed agency that makes a decision as to whether to censor or sanction a university for misbehaving in some way.
But not to worry because he was so much
Of course, he was also one of the active organizers of the Chicago Democratic Convention Riots of 1968--
Ehhh...c'mon--it's Netflix. Would Netflix even exist if we didn't need an antidote to Puritanism?
