Optimistic but not getting hopes up

"First of all, I think we shouldn't assume that Black Americans are dumb or insensitive or incapable of learning. They're looking at grocery store prices they can't afford, and they know it's Biden's fault. They're looking at millions of illegal immigrants coming into their neighborhoods, taking their jobs, threatening their families with violence, and they know Biden is responsible. You turn around, and they know the tools aren't working, despite all the money we pour into the teachers' unions, and they know the Democrats are responsible. They look at big cities where... Democrat mayor after Democrat mayor is corrupt, incompetent, and incapable of serving their interests. So what you're beginning to see is a movement that says… 'What have we got to lose by trying out Donald Trump?' 

I think he will get a higher vote than any Republican since Eisenhower and may, in fact, exceed Eisenhower, because the momentum for the next four months, I think, is all going to be in… Trump's favor… While Trump is at 21 [percent among Black voters] and people are saying, 'Boy, that's good,' Biden has collapsed. The number of Black Democrats, and for that matter, Latino Democrats who are now undecided and potentially could switch to Trump are breathtaking. And that's why you're beginning to see places like … Minnesota, the last poll, Trump's up four. Well, if he carries Minnesota by any margin, he's on the verge of a 1980 Ronald Reagan blowout of Jimmy Carter, and I don't see practically how the Democrats offset reality."

Supreme court overturns previous judicial homeless madness

The Supreme Court loosened the restraints on city officials confronting homeless encampments, overturning a lower court that found it unconstitutional to penalize people for sleeping in public when they have nowhere else to stay.

Writing for the court, Justice Neil Gorsuch said the Eighth Amendment ban on cruel and unusual punishments, which a lower court invoked to strike down the city's ordinance, had no role to play in limiting government responses to homelessness.

C-SPAN: President Reagan 1981 Inaugural Address

An $18 Big Mac meal sparked a revolt against high prices. Companies are finally listening | CNN Business


 I didn't watch the debate because I didn't think it wouldn't be very informative.  I thought that it might be disastrous because the moderators are very anti-Trump.

Most people have already decided, which makes debates a bit pointless.

However, I was very interested in what the commentators had to say about the debate.  The immediate reaction by everyone, including Biden supporters, is that Biden did badly and looked senile.  Even his supporters want a different candidate to replace him.  His opponents would be happy to keep him as an opponent because there is no way he can win.  

I think that the responsible thing for Biden to do is to stop his reelection campaign.  It is unlikely that Biden can survive another term, or at least do the job, so there should be another candidate.

Why This Tiny Jellyfish Is Much Worse Than You Think target="_blank"

If this creature is so bad, the world would be better off if we eliminated it.

There are many dangerous creatures, some of which kill a significant number of people.  We can't eliminate all of them, but this particular jellyfish doesn't serve a purpose.

It has been advocated that we get rid of mosquitoes. I agree with this. They kill more people than any other animal.  If they are killing people, then they are killing animals too.

Disney/Lucasfilm, maybe it's finally time to hear out the fans disappointed with Star Wars

Hey Thor,

If we are being honest, not all the hate toward The Acolyte is due to people thinking the show is poor quality although I am sure that is a major factor.  So many people feel "burned" by previous Disney girl-boss Mary-Sue shows that the moment they heard that it has a female lead and a gay director who made some controversial comments that were taken out of context, they refused to watch the show.  This is what my friends are telling me.  And those who feel so slighted are hyper-critical of it for its wokeness.  People have developed a knee-jerk reaction to anything that looks woke because they lump it all into the same basket as Captain Marvel and Rey.  The fanbase has built up resentment, so maybe the practical thing Disney should do is give us some classical male heroes which is what most people like.  There is still room for female heroes as there always has been. 

This is what happened to "Lightyear" which I thought was a pretty good movie.  Because it has a same-sex couple and a blink-and-you-will-miss-it lesbian kiss, there was a huge boycott campaign promoted by conservative talk show hosts.  The movie bombed because nobody watched it.  I tried to convince my friends to watch it, and they refused thinking it was too controversial.  People are reacting to what they hear instead of watching it and deciding for themselves.

I don't think that The Acolyte is bad.  I don't think that the third episode is bad for not revealing all of its cards.  We were told that the show's point was to have a mystery told from different perspectives.  I look forward to watching how the mystery plays out.  However, the show makes story-telling choices that don't sit well with the general audience. 

The Acolyte has enough of a budget that it could be better, but this leads to my second issue regarding Star Wars fans.  They expect perfection.  TV shows never have the same budget as major movies, and even The Acolyte has a lower budget than The Rise of Skywalker, so I am willing to give TV shows a bit more leeway.  I am just grateful that the show is entertaining even if it is not perfect.  Like you, I want it to be better, but that isn't always possible given the budget.  

For example, there was an outstanding George Lucas movie that was effectively turned into a TV show and nobody complained about the show being inferior even though it was.  The show was a huge hit.  The movie was American Graffiti and the show was Happy Days.

I would feel honored if you would comment on this. 

Best wishes,

Some Reasons why People Suck

The data shows the temperature has taken 140 years to go up 1 degree Celsius.  This is relative to a dangerous and deadly cold period in the 1880's.  This slow rate of change shows that there is no climate emergency.  The current rate of change is at most 0.2 degrees per decade. 

We will be running out of most fossil fuels by the year 2100.  Coal will be the last fossil fuel to go.  At the current level of usage, we only have 40 years of oil reserves remaining. 

CO2 is a valuable resource.  It keeps the earth from freezing and it is plant food.  There is a greening of the earth because of it. 

The CO2 level over the last 40 million years has been in a nose dive.  This is because calcifying marine organisms sequester CO2 (indirectly).  The CO2 level got so low during the last period of mass glaciation that it reached 180 parts per million.  This is just barely above the 150 parts per million where all the terrestrial plants die. 

A funny thing happens to the climate roughly every 100,000 years.  The data shows that the temperature will quickly shoot up 8 to 15 degrees, level off for 10,000 years, and then go back down almost as quickly.  Then we get 85 to 90 thousand years of mass glaciation where New York is covered by ice. 

We should already be in the cool-down cycle of the interglacial.  The only thing that has prevented the planet from cooling is those pesky humans who added 150 parts per million CO2 into the atmosphere.  The infrared absorption range of CO2 is much narrower than other gasses like water vapor, and it has already reached 90% of its absorption capacity. 

Climate alarmism is dependent on as-of-yet unproven positive feedback models.  There are many feedbacks, some of which are negative.  There is much controversy over clouds, where common sense would indicate negative feedback to temperature, but the IPCC says the opposite. 

True science looks at data and then comes to a conclusion.  The IPCC does the opposite.  They start with a conclusion and then support that with evidence.  The IPCC refused to hire anyone who did not already believe in catastrophic man-made warming.  This shows their bias.  The IPCC actively suppressed skeptical papers and tried to get skeptical scientists fired.  The head of U.N., António Guterres, was a Socialist Party politician in Portugal, and he routinely makes outrageous statements about the climate that are completely inaccurate. 

Socialism is not palatable to the American people, so the socialists have been pushing false crises to divide and conquer and to give us more government control in incremental steps.  I'm sorry that you have been duped by this mass hysteria. 

Best wishes,

Conservatives Must Improve Their Ground Game To Win Big In 2024

He assumes that the Democrats cheated in 2020.  I wish that we had better evidence. There were so many irregularities that it seems likely some cheating took place.  I don't think it changed the result, although Dinesh Desouza pointed out there was enough illegal ballot harvesting in the swing states to sway the election.

The left argues that the Republicans lost all their lawsuits over the election.  This is not true.  About 80% of the cases were dismissed over jurisdiction before going to trial.  In the cases that went to trial, the Republicans won most of them.  The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that Pennsylvania violated its election laws.

Why Socialism Always Fails

A pyramid scheme is ultimately unsustainable because it is based on faulty principles. Likewise, collectivism is unsustainable in the long run because it is a flawed theory. Socialism does not work because it is not consistent with fundamental principles of human behavior. The failure of socialism in countries around the world can be traced to one critical defect: it is a system that ignores incentives.

Socialists point to a false sense of victimhood.

Yet, nobody starves to death under capitalism.  There are many programs, public and private, to help the poor and an abundance of food.

Meanwhile,  you have food lines under socialism.

Matt Walsh Attacks Voting Rights

Everyone needs to be able to vote so that nobody feels disenfranchised.  Voting is a substitute for war to be able to make political change.

This is a bad look for Republicans.  This take is political suicide.  I'm sure that the left will immediately run with this, and claim that the Republicans want to take away your vote.

Donald Trump Found Guilty Of Running For President

Trump Conviction Outrage

There is less outrage on YouTube over Trump's conviction than I expected. It is like the news has died down.

I assume that some people feel like I do, that if the political system is so corrupt that they put Trump in prison for political purposes then it is the end of the Republic. Especially if Trump loses the election because of it. I'm thinking that there should be a secessionist movement.

I don't expect that to happen for a couple of reasons. Maybe not enough people feel as strongly about it, and maybe there are some lines even the political left won't cross. They should at least fear the backlash.

Trump wasn't even my first choice. He is a flawed individual, but such injustice should spark outrage.

I have a suspected a secret plan where Biden pardons Trump, maybe stopping any appeal, but also indebting Trump to Biden and setting a precedent. Biden could also get convicted, especially if the political winds change. Maybe Trump will owe him one.

Best wishes,

John Coffey
