That’s hard to believe
Nearly impossible I’d say. Not calling him a liar but can’t say I totally believe it…

Have a PS5. Been playing Returnal lately. Very fun even though I’m pretty bad at it so far.

Someone will have to post what he says when he's done saying it. If time is money, that means I'd be losing big $$$ if I took the time to listen myself.
He’s ending the health orders June 2nd or in spocks case what health orders he hasn’t worn a mask in months and if anyone says anything he just leaves the store and goes elsewhere then[sic] that store becauseq no one tells him what to do then he makes his wife nut
The government in Ohio will never end it. People need to just end it on their own.
I refuse to spend money or go anywhere with a enforced mask policy. That is how you end it

How about civil asset forfeiture? If the feds cared about American citizens in the slightest, they would have banned this practice at the federal level before it started. But they don't, so many states rob their own citizens for profit. And cops are incentivized to partake in the practice because they get to keep a lot of the toys they steal. Sure, some of it is taken from drug dealers, but a lot of innocent people get wrapped up in the process with almost no recourse. The claim that you have due process but your possessions do not so we can take them without charging you with an actual crime is one of the most absurd distortions of rights I have ever heard.

Sounds like you two are really coming together and seeing eye-to-eye on yet another topic.

Don’t understand the endgame here. I guess science is different out there
I feel really bad for small business owners. BUT, you get what you vote for.

My guess is 90% of public places want nothing to do with this. It’s local health departments running around fining them.
Few people worse that the health inspector

Just changed parties over the last 40 years...
Ah, the old southern shuffle huh?
Just one question...
I think we can all agree that since the 1950s/60s and Jim Crowe era that the southern states have slowly become less racist over time, yes? I would hope we all agree that the south is less racist now than it was in 1960?
Given that agreement, as the south has become less racist, why has it become more Republican?
Just a thought experiment to counter the ole southern switcharoo.

They made some pretty big(bad) changes to early voting. I can't read your article, what are these experts saying they did to make this a net positive?

Can’t wait to see all the whining on Reddit about it later.
You don’t even need to go to Reddit. I’m whining 24/7 on here.

So this devastation waited through the whole year of the pandemic and waited until now to drive the price up?
Or, a more simple answer, speculation is driving it up as the speculators are worried after the shutdown of Keystone.
Actually yes, that seems about right. Gas is still cheaper now than it was pre pandemic in case you weren't aware. Like he said, the demand is going back up.

What’s the reason (that I can understand) why a barrel of oil has went from $25 to $61.40 in the last 3-4 weeks?
Oil price is a function of speculation, kind of like the stock market.
The speculators got scared when Biden shutdown the Keystone Pipeline.
