And they're about the same age as the "99's", which is 99.


Didn't we establish the convention of green text denoting sarcasm?

Or was that POA Spin Zone (may it rest in chaos)?

It's absolutely incredible that the president's "political rivals" have a vote (pre-determined to convict) and can actively participate for the prosecution in his trial

Kangaroo court, anyone?

Your guys butthurt over Biden is pretty funny, seeing how the current officeholder installed his own entirely unqualified children into the halls of power. But that was OK because, er, ummm, Trump!
Once again you show yourself to be a complete fool. The only child of President Trump who has an official capacity at the White House (Ivanka) is as an adviser to the president. It's not a "do nothing" job . She takes no salary. She was very accomplished in business before Mr Trump won the election.

Very interesting. I’ve always thought engineers were more likely to be conservative because they have to use natural, immoveable laws to build things that actually work, whilst IT usually involves mostly the manipulation of information in a limited number of ways.

Good analysis. Software "engineers" are definitely left leaning, vs those of us who deal with real objects.  With most software, the behavior can be changed to correct mistakes after release; with hardware, it has to be right when it leaves the factory, hence "conservative" design.

Last week I put everything I wanted to say on the subject of politics into a snail mail to POTUS. Now trying to get some real life stuff done.
Physical mail can take a long time to reach anyone's eyes because of security concerns. Best to use fax.

I'm a casual fan of the band, but didn't know of P-ear-t's (I wish the suddenly fawning YouTubers would learn to pronounce the man's name correctly before going online and tearing their garments in their eulogies) writings.

I have a number of new books to read.

Just another sign of a roaring economy and record low unemployment.  There are more jobs than people to fill them.   Companies are having to get creative in attracting new employees, and retaining existing ones.

Maybe, but job reqs are still specifying unicorns, and I haven't noticed any uptick in compensation.

That says it all.

Call me crazy, but this thought has crossed my mind:

OK, so maybe someone in the Iranian leadership had determined that Qassim Suleimani had grown too big for his britches, maybe a loose cannon even. But, Iran couldn't be connected with taking him out I'd think, knowing his power and following. So, Trump takes out the bad General, both the US and Iran benefit, and Iran lobs some softballs at the American base to appease the masses.

Nuts, or .......

Agree, had similar thought. The leadership doesn't seem too heartbroken over his demise.

Just the lifestyles of the politicians, celebrities and activists indicate the lie of Man Made Climate Change.  Oh they may buy a Fiskars, or drive a hybrid for the media, but own multiple mansions, ocean front property, yachts, private Jets, and use caravans of SUV's to get around.  They claim having a large carbon footprint is a bad thing, yet they have some of the largest.  Total hypocrisy.

They know it is a hoax and a scam, but the rich and powerful will benefit from draconian regulations and more taxes on the masses.  My other gripe is with pilots and aircraft owners that are Democrat supporters.  The same as gun owners that are Democrat supporters.  Either they are stupid, or just more huge hypocrites, or both.

Carbon footprints are for the "little people."

There used to be a guy on POA that worked for the National Park Service as a ranger.  He was one of the most radical, far left progressives around at that time.
