  1. this thread is not helpful at all while sitting in front of a computer. Cruel, evil little bastards.
  2. From what I have read, this variant is more contagious but less severe in its end form. Also, those who are vaccinated are unlikely to have symptoms and less likely to spread it. In short, much ado about nothing.
  3. Not sure why but that tends to the trend everywhere I have lived (Boise, Salt Lake City, and Reno). The further up the hills/mountains you go, the more expensive and exclusive it gets. The rundown areas are the ones just outside the downtown radius.
  4. Never really been to TX. Hanging out in El Paso for 8 to 10 hours does not really count.
  5. I have no issue with people moving to a place and purchasing property. Most people know the basic layout of where they are moving to and so if you really find it that undesirable then simply do not buy the house and move there. Seems quite simple but apparently some can't process that kind of logic. As for myself, I refuse to ever move to Southern California, Phoenix, or Las Vegas. I know the areas and know that I abhor hot weather.
  6. for 99.9% of the US population, this is a non-issue. Most do not care that there is a 2800 mile gap between southern alaska and washington state.
  7. Now the ones that give me the itch to do bodily harm are those that move to these areas and then complain about how the locals (or the areas surrounding it) are hicks, inbreds, simpletons, ignorant. Having slightly different priorities does not make someone an idiot or inbred.
  8. On the other hand, the locals brag about the higher number of jobs, more things to do, higher selling price for their home. It seems like they want to have their cake and eat it tool.
  9. Reno, Boise, Salt Lake City, Missoula, Bend... places that CA expatriates have grown into large cities.. not exactly warm and comfortable in the winter either.
  10. Has already started to become expensive and on par with Salt Lake City, Boise, Reno, Bend, and Missoula. Why sell your average home in Salinas, CA for 500,000 and then pay the same amount in Fort collins and now be a 19 hour drive or 3 hour flight from family/friends/familar confines.
  11. Actually most fleeing CA are ending up in TX, NV, ID, UT, and MT. Southern CA are the ones moving to TX and those from Central and Northern are ending up in ID, NV, and UT in that order. I predict that the next state that they start populating is SD.
  12. Newsome has very slim chances of re-election. It is not due to CA becoming less liberal. It all comes down to his heavy handed approach during the pandemic.
  13. Well, you can have your imperialist dreams. I like the national boundaries as they are. Canada predates Alaska joining the US so Canada did not divide anything. CA's issue with their power grid does affect other states but other states have the same problem.. too many people living in hot, dry places where surface water is relatively scarce.
  14. As evidence, South of Fresno. The farmers and residents have sucked the groundwater to the point that the crust of the earth has lifted. They consume at a far greater rate than they replenish.
  15. CA is overpopulated. That is the issue when it comes to this, their water issues, and the oncoming fire season. Too many people live in places that are and always have been hot and dry. Even the native Americans mostly chose not to live in what we now call the Inland Empire, Central Valley, and NE California.
  16. FOX News is full of shows that are admittedly Op-ed. Do you know what that means? My guess is not. I know that you can't comprehend this but I do not watch any of these shows.. FOX, MSNBC, etc. Not one second. Why? I know that they are mostly opinions. If I want news, I can go online and find what I want to read. Lastly, I do not need to read/hear opinions on certain topics; unemployment, jobs, inflation. Why? I process the original data myself. I do not get it from someone else.
  17. I will admit that I did not predict Jan. 6 to be more than people doing their usual perpetual brand of bitching, complaining, etc. However, it was not a true insurrection. Or if it was... what a piss poor attempt at it.
  18. The things that folks do to pass the time. This is the "offseason" of sorts for politics so any approval ratings are quite meaningless.
  19. What a snorefest. It makes perfect sense that interest in the media specifically politics would decrease after the most polarizing, style over substance politician in modern times lost. Interest in politics will ramp back up around the next election time. That is the way of the world.
  20. Actually TV ratings have been declining across the board. Just because some of the dwindling base is moving from CNBC/MSNBC to FOX is trivial. It does not matter if they are partisan or not. The point is that their shows are opinions... everyone knows this except you apparently.
  21. Im pretty sure that this perpetual cry for impeachment occurred before Trump but was not as visible due to lack of internet. However, I think this is the new norm. When your candidate does not win, rail for impeachment over and over again.
  22. Better to play it safe than having blackouts or other partial failures of the power grid.
