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.
DecisionDeskHQ FINALLY Calls the Arizona GOP Gubernatorial Primary Race
Many Lake supporters were concerned when the final county to report was corrupt Maricopa County. It was the epicenter of voter fraud during the 2020 elections and many feared we were seeing a repeat. Some, including me, have speculated that there must have already been massive voter fraud in this race because it was far closer than what polls from even the day before indicated.
Lake was winning in-person voting by a 40-point margin, but somehow there was a massive surge of mail-in ballots that put Robson in the lead early on. While some can argue that it’s normal for Democrats to be more inclined to mail in their ballots, this was a GOP primary. Why would Robson attract only Republicans who acted like Democrats? Something didn’t add up.
Voting in Maricopa county won't be a moot point until the precinct has a thorough house-cleaning and new procedures are adopted. Any organization that fights a performance audit as hard as this one did, should not be in a position of authority and can't be trusted with something as important as free and transparent elections.
On the Canadian graves story, the media got it so badly wrong because they thought they would make money doing it. It's not as if the evidence was mistaken and they thought they were right - there was no evidence aside from rumors, legends, and some disturbed ground that was interpreted as being burial sites without a single bone present. The media doesn't really care if they get it right - at least until they're defending a libel suit.
The admin state needs a thorough revision. It is boated AND partisan and needs a severe cut to the point that congresscritters need to make every decision in each bureaucracy. That is the only way that government can be miniaturized, and politicians held directly responsible for their lawmaking.
People are not creatures of the state to be educated for its purposes. I got no problem with not oppressing women & BIPOC by teaching them math. Don’t want to learn—guess what? You don’t gotta.
Like choosing your gender, math is best learned as an adult. I think WA schools should suspend teaching math beyond arithmetic. After the children of feminists, democrats, and socialists have chosen their gender, they can choose to learn algebra.
