Pride is an oxymoron

Generally, you show pride in yourself, by showing respect for yourself and others

Think of the message these same youth would send if they worse suits, ties, had bathed, and looked like they were respectfully and someone you would actually associate yourself with

Instead of being a caricature of themselves; they would look like rational, intelligent and human beings you could talk and learn about.

But, that’s not the path they chose - or ever even consider

No, you can't drive a car - you are a child No, you can't drink alcohol - you are a child No, you can't sign a legal contract - you are a child No, you can't buy a home - you are a child No, you can't buy a firearm - you are a child

Why don't you take an experimental RNA modifying vaccine, that has created hundreds (if not thousands) of cases of myocarditis and heart problems in children instead?

The damage to Twitter, exposed by Elon, cannot be understated.

Oxley-Sarbanes Act of 2002 - Sarbanes-Oxley makes it a crime to defraud shareholders of publicly traded companies through the filing of misleading financial reports. Executives face fines of up to $1 million and ten years imprisonment for knowingly certifying financial reports that don't comply with the SOX's requirements

Elon can walk away, without incurring any penalties, due to fraud. So the stock could then go into free-fall.

Shareholders now have cause to sue Twitter. First, by fraudulently filing SEC reports, shareholders were intentionally given bad information, by which they made financial decisions. This is a Class Action Law Suit.

Advertisers were defrauded, as the rate they were charged for advertising on that platform, was based on the number of Active Accounts, which were intentionally inflated. This is a Class Action Law Suit.

It's bad, it's very, very bad.

The entire value of Twitter, just like a Newspaper, TV show, sport team, or brand of underwear - is all based on the size of the market it commands. Not the marketshare, the size of the market. You may have 98% of the grilled Liver hamburger patty market locked up tight, but I suspect your sales are not very high.

Twitter falsified the number of active accounts, and used these bogus accounts to set it's value. Musk is many things, and being a good businessman is probably one of his biggest skillsets. Why would he buy something when he knows the price set is fraudulent?

Nope, looks like the price of Twitter just imploded.

If a vote counting machine MUST be able to print (such as a stamp to say it was counted on machine#/date/time/location# and validation code) - why can't that ink be a specific color?

UV visible only? Red, green, blue? Why would it be the same 'color" as the ballot or a black pen?

Simple questions, one could also ask why it would print at all, if all the above could be done with a hand stamp, with complete traceability.

There is no valid reason for the machine to have the capability to print at all.

I beg to differ. The decision is between my, and my MD. For example, if i want Liposuction; and my MD says "No, that would be foolish for you at your age, weight and health"; he wins. Despite what I do, no matter how I stomp my feet, shout and scream; he is the MD. If in his opinion, this process would be akin to suicide - he has a DUTY to refuse to provide this service. Whether I am anemic, or morbidly obese - he is the health professional.

However, if he demands I get a process, take a vaccine, being an exercise regiment, or take a medication - I have final and absolute right to VETO his decision. For any reason, or no reason at all.

Decisions are joint, requiring agreements between BOTH parties. And as a Patient, i hold the upper hand, because I may chose, at my discretion, to find another health provider for any reason, or no reason at all.

A high percentage of the Carbon Fiber material is epoxy. The carbon fiber is more or less like rebar, in that it gives strength to the epoxy; I would guess that the carbon is no more than 50% of the material.

A lot of carbon fiber is created from cotton. Carbon usually falls into 4 distinct forms, diamond, graphite, graphene and buckminsterfullerene. Given the amount of impurities in these blades, I don't expect you are going to get much of a profit from grinding them up. Carbon is generally pretty plentiful, and about as precious as sand.

You are aware that Telsa sold approximately 349,000 EV's in the last quarter, right? That Tesla has so many backorders on the books - right now - that they may stop taking pre-orders, because the backorders are going out beyond a year.

Compare against GM, that sold 349 cars; after dealers marked the prices up $10,000 over sticker. You cannot even order a Ford Mustang EV this year.

Batteries are growing in technology by leaps and bounds. Lithium Carbonate, Lithium Peroxide, with Toyota coming out with their prototype of a solid state lithium based battery (think SOLID chunk of ceramic, with about 240% charge density of current tech) and Tesla announcing a Lithium - Sulphur Battery with a life cycle measured around 4 Million miles.

These newer technologies will likely give ~1,000 miles/charge. And the R&D is being done by CAPITALISM.

There are also some very new revolutionary changes coming in the mining industry - in how we GET these minerals. The way we got Gold in the 1800's is not the same way we get Gold today. The way we get Lithium, Manganese, Graphene, Cobalt and Nickel is going to change. Northern Nevada has enough Lithium trapped in the clay deposits to meet the US needs through the year 2050 - just in Nevada.

There is a reason why every single car manufacturer is moving to EV.

If they are aluminum, they are recoverable; however if they are carbon fiber, once they develop stress fractures - I don't think they can be repaired.

Wait until the Copyright Laws that apply to everyone else, are applied to Disney. Micky Mouse and the gang, and many of the old Disney movies will all become Public Domain.

The Death Spiral is real.

So tired of the duality of laws.

If I accepted bribes that in any way could affect my professional decisions, I go to jail, and likely spend a good portion of the rest of my life behind bars. The legal costs would bankrupt my family.

But, if a DEM does the exact same thing, the laws are ignored and they receive accolades.

And yet some religions have internationally renown Physics professors, Neural designers; all working to improve life. The more you understand Quantum Physics, Entanglement, String Theory, Black hole theory, relativistic theory and even chaos; the more evident God becomes.

When you begin to understand the complexities that make life possible, the trillions of complex things that had to happen - just right, at the precise moments in time, the harder it is to believe that we are just 'happen stance".

The biggest problem religion plays, is it's inflexibility in grasping ideas from a different perspective. I offer the number of lives that were tortured to death, for daring to state that the earth is not the center of the universe.

Poor thing, she had 10 years reduced off her sentence; only to commit suicide mere hours before she was set to testify.

Naturally, the cameras that were set to monitor her; all malfunctioned. The guards that were hired to watch her, all decided to take a nap. Nobody saw anything. No investigation will be made Just another unpreventable suicide.

Any wagers that unlike the Jan 6th protesters, who were invited into the White House; these Election Fraud Mules will get a speedy trial, be released on a technicality, and have their legal fees paid for by some rich liberal?

That beats the living crap out of 99% of the trash enshrined in the Smithsonian Museum of Modern Art. That is a waste of AC

If I saw that crap along the side of the road, I wouldn’t slow down.

Funny how some Copyrighted material has a limited timeframe; and “special” companies get “special” deals that only apply to them

Are we equal, or are some more equal than others

Hmmm, Trudeau is unusually quiet. Probably hiding in a closet somewhere; dressed in his sexiest dress.

Funny, Trudeau was pretty brave and brazen when it came unarmed truckers, who peacefully protest on the street, and "free" Canadians who felt that they could donate $50+ to whomever they wanted.

But, he is a shy cuck when it comes to dealing with Russia

I do not understand how Roe vs. Wade made it past the 10th Amendment.

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

It appears that D'nish's company rented the auditoriums at AMC, and paid for the seats in advance; as YOU CANNOT BUY TICKETS TO THE MOVIES FROM AMC.

You MUST buy the tickets from 2000mules.com - this will prevent any AMC manager from deciding to cancel at the last minute. The seats were bought and paid for, payment has been accepted - and with sold out auditoriums, any manager who refuses to provide service, should be on the hook for a full refund to each patron - plus damages for breach of contract.

Seems like a good way to defeat any attempted censorship by Liberals.
