What is the OT view of mass transit? - Slippy on 6/20/17 at 5:16 pm
Been in D.C. for a few days. Rode the Metro everywhere. Done NYC and London and other places. The number of people that can be moved into, out of, and around cities via trains is mind boggling. But people in places like the South, and especially in Texas, hate any form of transportation that...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (22)
Why does the US cling to a two-party system? - Slippy on 6/14/17 at 9:31 pm
The 2 party system has a number of problems. It forces disparate ideological groups to hold their noses and stick together despite the fact that they disagree on many things. People are forced to vote for platforms they don't fully support. It feeds the nasty polarization in the country today by c...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (24)

1974 was a musical wasteland. - Slippy on 6/11/17 at 8:11 pm
Today driving home from Shreveport I was listening to an American Top 40 broadcast from June 1974 on XM. I enjoy these things because they are nostalgic for me. However, I got on board in the late 70's. I was 8 years old at the time of this original broadcast. I was in shock at what I heard tod...

re: When did being a moderate become so frowned upon? - Slippy on 6/11/17 at 6:09 pm
If you look at it from the standpoint of governance, rather than ideology, being a moderate makes a lot of sense. The hard partisan divide creates only gridlock, since nobody wants to compromise. And in places where one side significantly outnumbers the other, you have one side steamrolling the ot...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

It's always the other side's fault, brah. You just can't see past your own partisan rage. Which proves my point. They are all worthless. They should all be tossed. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

La. legislature again proves is a useless body full of worthless people. - Slippy on 6/9/17 at 8:03 am
No deal on state budget reached. The politics and self interest on display in the room those last few hours was shameful and embarrassing.

re: UK Elections: Conservatives to stay in power; form coalition w/ N. Ireland right wing DUP - Slippy on 6/9/17 at 7:55 am
I've seen this characterized as "revenge of the young." Millenials are as leftist in Britain as they are in the US (likely moreso) and they registered and voted in record numbers. There is no way to sugarcoat this. This is a bad, bad development for Brexit. When you have to depend on a handf...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
