    Humans in the Americas before last Ice Age

    Pretty cool reading this. Apparently, humans got here before the last ice age, so they sailed over here or something way back when? Does this push back civilization and advanced humans even further? I know ancient finds, like Göbeklitepe have pushed it back a bit, but this might push it back...

    Claims in book about Gen Milley false.

    Seems like people are getting spun up over a book again to bilk people out of their money. How many times does this cycle have to repeat itself? https://www.politico.com/news/2021/09/15/claims-that-milley-made-secret-calls-to-chinese-leaders-exaggerated-sources-say-511918 Claims in an...

    Tired of politics?

    Is anyone tired of politics? Like...just bury your head in the sand and just busy yourself with distractions? I'm kinda getting to that point. Pessimistic that anything positive will come out of either side, so it's ultimately futile to care about the ebbs and flows of it. I've always...

    SC Justice Breyer resists calls to retire.

    What is it with the liberal SC justices that keeps them from making the expedient choice? Is it ego? This came back to bite them in the butt when RBG didn't retire, even though we all saw her literally falling asleep all the time, among other health issues compounded by old age. This resulted...

    Post that only criticize the source

    ...should have a rule against that. If someone comes into a thread, and only criticizes the source posted, that should be stopped. I don't care if they actually address the OP and then also criticize the source. Combative posts are fine so long as the actual point is still being addressed...

    Dungeons and Dragons

    So I've just started getting into Dungeons and Dragons recently. I only played a little when I was younger because that was the era of "your kids are going to get demon possessed" or w/e that made parents freak out about it in the 80s. I'm working on a campaign for my daughters, and it's a lot...

    No gaming allowed in blue states.

    So, apparently, there are a handful of blue states that won't let the lowly peasants use a little more electricity for their entertainment if it involves video gaming. They say it uses too much power. The states that have restrictions are California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont and...

    48 Canadian churches burned or vandalized last month.

    This doesn't seem to be a story that has much traction, likely because the actors are white progressives. However, it seems that that particular violent demographic isn't relegated to the U.S. They are burning churches to the ground in Canada. It becomes even more sick when Canadian...

    Challenge for liberals/progressives

    I'm posting this challenge for anyone who identifies as a liberal/progressive to post something positive about the United States of America, and to do so without equivocations or disclaimers.

    Family Budgeting and Finances

    So I was talking with my wife, who played an episode from some podcast and they said something that just doesn't make any sense to me. They say that you're supposed to first build up a nest egg/emergency fund of 2-3 months, in a high yield savings account, and then you pay off high interest...

    When you're so woke you destroy yourself.

    So they have this cause that they really believe in (if I'm taking them at face value). They seriously believe we're heading for global extinction and catastrophe of biblical proportions. But, they disband themselves because their membership and participation is "too white"? That doesn't make...

    North Korea defector says the left is nuts.

    It's pretty bad when someone from a completely oppressive radical left regime comes to the U.S. and says that the left here in our universities are just as crazy as they are in North Korea...

    "Snowflakes" by Tom MacDonald

    This came out two days ago and already has over 3 mil views on YouTube and is the #1 song in all genres of music right now. It's almost as if there is a message here that resonates. Also interesting to watch reaction videos to the song on YouTube. Also, the woman in the video is Blaire White...

    China threatens nuclear war over COVID probe.

    This will be a test of the Biden administration, and the will of the United States and it's ability to build an international coalition to confront an ever-growing threat that is China. This is a very complicated and difficult issue because of our deep economic ties, as well as the rest of the...

    Racism is prejudice + power, right?

    I keep hearing from progressives that you can't be racist against white people because they have changed the actual definition to be prejudice + power. Even in this definition there can be anti-white racism because there are dynamics where a white person would be in the minority and the...

    "Anti-Israel isn't anti-Semitism" or is it?

    Of often see people, mostly from the left, going on and on about Israel, while ignoring worse atrocities in neighboring countries, but will claim it's not anti-Semitism. The claimed distinction never seems to hold up. Here we have multiple attacks on Jews in the U.S. (i.e. not Israel) because...

    The future the left wants/creates.

    With their divorcement from reality, destruction of American norms, disregard for property, and corrupt ideology Portland shows us a good example of what happens when you start tipping too far to the left. They've run Portland into the ground and what you see here is spreading. Similar...

    No one wants to deal with far-left Evergreen Collage

    This is quite hilarious and I have to say, these three finalists to be the next president of Evergreen State Collage dodged a bullet. All three have withdrawn after interviews conducted with faculty, students, staff and alumni. I wonder what kind of batshit crazy stuff went on during those...

    Puppy sitting duty/Show your doggos

    We picked up a baby Shih Tzu for a family friend and are watching her for about a week, and my wife will fly out to visit her friend and take her her dog. We also have a Shih Tzu, this is his baby sister (same parents). I never thought they'd be cute but they are a bit cute in their own derpy...

    Chauvin juror lied about BLM protest attendance

    This definitely increases the likelihood of a mistrial or supporting an appeal. I think the jury got it mostly right (not sure about all three charges but for sure manslaughter and maybe more). This isn't about that. This is about the issues of our jury pools being tainted more and more. We...
