  1. I didn't know much about Bernstein apart from a few articles, nor his affiliations, but it looks like he has distinctly broken ranks with the Orthodoxy. He wrote a very good essay arguing why collectivism is the greater evil, and sure enough Binswanger entered in a debate to (not effectively) counter that. Seriously? It is controversial for O'ists to support individualism (by the dreaded religious conservatives) over collectivism (by the Left)?

  2. 6 takeaways from Joe Biden's CNN town hall President Joe Biden took part in his first town hall since entering the White House last month, answering questions from CNN's Anderson Cooper (and audience members) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 1. A hard deadline on vaccinations: Less than five minutes into the town hall, Biden made a promise that will be the big news not just tomorrow but for months to come: He said that "by the end of July, we'll have over 600 million doses, enough to vaccinate every single American." . . . . 2. Clearing up the school reopening question: Biden's p

  3. From Fox News: The Republican Party appears split after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and former President Donald Trump exchanged harsh statements following Trump's impeachment acquittal by the Senate over the weekend, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told "Hannity" Tuesday the feud has got to stop. "Mitch McConnell working with Donald Trump did a hell of a job. They’re now at each other’s throat," he said. "I’m more worried about 2022 than I’ve ever been. I don’t want to eat our own." "President Trump is the most consequential Republican in the party," Graham continued. "If M

  4. Well said. I agree. How did, and does, the news in general “spin” whatever President Trump says? No matter the headline they will add a twist that is derogatory to former President Trump but not to President O’Biden. I have a few examples below but be on the look-out for more test patterns in the news. Below, if the name Biden is replaced with the name Trump how would the following blurbs read? Peter From The Hill: Biden reassures child with COVID-19 fears: 'I wouldn't worry about it, baby.' From CNN: Biden shows he is the voice of presidential sanity. From Politico: Reparation

  5. It may have been more than 19 at that SCOTUS gathering, Michael. But at a later indoor gathering fewer germs were spread and there was social distancing and masks worn. Peter From Medical Daily. The question remains: How many of President Trump's 200 guests contracted the coronavirus after attending the announcement of his next Supreme Court nominee? The Sept. 26 gathering, since branded a super-spreader event, has resulted in at least 34 people connected to the event or to the White House testing positive for the coronavirus. An infected person could infect at least two other people.

  6. To Biden? Was he and his cartel fair? I'm only posting here because I like you. So if you want your thread, you've got it. I doubt you will get much interest in it, though. Biden's not worth taking seriously other than as an impostor and thief and enemy of the US and probably pervert. The only thing I hope from him is his ineptness will keep the agenda of his handlers paralyzed for the most part. Michael

  7. Peter, Did you check the sources they used? The mainstream media lies by default, including Fox. It's what they do. If repeating their story is your only source, you have a media narrative, not a fact. For it to be a fact, you have to check it against real sources, not made up ones. Liars lie. A is A. And these liars even give their sources: "a person with knowledge of the issue," or "an expert," or something like that. They do it all the time. Michael

  8. I thought I would be fair and do Joe's Presidential thread the same as the best President ever's thread. This is mostly some things I said about Joe Biden over the years. Peter My Dad Harley Taylor was the commander of the Ocean View VFW and then the assistant State Commander and finally he was the State Commander of the VFW for Delaware. Although Joe Biden was invited to my father’s inauguration he never showed. And for Dad’s other events he would send a “representative. Senator Blowhard was my name for him. The moderator for the Biden/Palin Vice Presidential debate was a biased Oba

  10. Peter, Where did the number 19 come from? And how was it proven to be linked to the event? Fake news media? Based on a source like "someone close to the issue with knowledge of the case"? That's one premise that needs to be checked if you want to use the word "fact." Facts should be verified if one wants to use the tone of certainty, not simply repeated from gossip. Michael

  11. This new thread may have a few bugs in it but I am sure it will be working correctly in a day or two. We have need of a "Biden" thread just as we needed a "Trump" thread.

  12. SL, I wouldn't take it that far. Besides, there is a rule of thumb I believe is always good to follow, especially with philosophy. When a person habitually says one thing and it conflicts with what a person habitually does, what the person does is the better indication of what the person truly believes and will do in the future. A good example with Rand is that she constantly said evil was impotent. Yet in most of her fiction, one of the main conflicts is between a virtuous individual and an evil state. And the evil state was always there. It was not impotent, but
