For one reason or another it's incredibly important to Republican lawmakers what sex we choose to present ourselves as, which sex we choose to have sexual relations or love affairs with, and ultimately who we marry. It's important to them where you pee too.
Marriages between people with different coloured skin is frowned on but grudgingly allowed due to "liberal" court decisions. Oh and queers can get married now too but they plan to change that back along with the SC abortion ruling. There aren't enough people on the planet and so women should be forced to bear the children of their rapists, children forced to bear the children of their fathers to fulfill the word of God when he commanded that we "multiply."

Point is...Republicans not only want to tell you what you can and can't do on your own property, they wanna control what's in your pants too or under your skirt. And they better find the government approved plumbing in there when they look too!

The government has exactly two jobs as I see it. Providing for the general welfare and for the common defense. Defending us against sodomites is perhaps a Biblical thing?

What if we could unspend all the f*cking money that government has spent on marijuana prohibition?
What if we could magically have all the taxes that should have been levied on its use for the 100 years? What if government got its goddam nose out of our pants, out of our living rooms, out of our bedrooms and off of our property?

Get rid of Republicans and you get rid of most of the world's problems.

The funny thing about that South Carolina bill to ban medical intervention for trans kids is that it explicitly says "external genitalia AND genes" determine gender. But what about genetic females with male genitalia, and genetic males with female genitalia? These both happen. What does their law say about those cases? Or kids who are born with both sets of plumbing? What about all the kids who are not XX or XY genetically? There are several other possibilities.

It's like they have passed a bill declaring pi to be equal to 3.

And just for what it's worth, how about those kids born with severe gender dysphoria? Do we just call them crazy and force them into a life of misery?

That's the Republican answer.

If they have parents who go along with this BS, they are going to be forced into 18 years (or longer) of that misery. If they have parents who care, the family moves to a more enlightened state. They can come back after the surgery. I doubt South Carolina wants guys with dicks and beards using their ladies rooms. Because that is exactly what their stupid rules would require.

Well shee-it howdy, that's some libertarianism I can get behind!

So how many movies and TV shows did you work on that still have overseas sales?


None that went to China, that's for sure.
Yes, of course we're selling movie and other IP over there now, but look at the terms of the agreements.
What I was getting at is, we can't all be IP folks, or in IP marketing and distro, and we can't all be CEO's and day traders and sell insurance to each other all day long.

Some people have to work at making stuff. Hard goods, finished goods, durable and expendable. We can't just have all our raw materials siphoned off and sold back to us.

If manufacturing ever returns to any significant degree, much of it's going to be highly automated, of course. But we still have to have people engaged in manufacturing.

Nations that have narrow economies that are strictly focused on a limited range of things are vulnerable. We've seen it too many times.

That's not libertarianism...it's democratic socialism. And unlike libertarianism it's been tried, it's working, and it's spreading.

It's kind of like global warming. People deny that it's a thing. They call it another thing and point in a different direction.
I say science, and they say God.
I say Switzerland, they say Venezuela.
I say Sweden and they say Cuba.
I say Denmark and they say CCCP
Y'see?

The ultimate goal, I admit, is socialism. But only if Society wants to be socialist. That could be a thousand years in the future or never. If you don't yet understand social democracy, Please Read the WIKI explanation.

I think it's where we're headed. Witness the rise of progressives among blue voters. It scares the establishment. As it should because it is the beginning of the end for them. It is the new status quo. Where government works for everybody.

And I think that unless we start moving more quickly in that direction we might very well be doomed as a species.

Convince me I'm wrong. Please.
