re: Juneteenth to become federal holiday - Big Scrub TX
[quote]Except the proclamation was made on January 1st two years before Juneteenth. And the 13th was ratified six months after Juneteenth. It's odd to elevate a local Texas holiday to federal status, no?[/quote]The celebration is of actual, practical emancipation - not nominal emancipation....

Jackson Browne and David Lindley - Big Scrub TX
Jackson Browne stands head and shoulders above the other singer/songwriters of his era. His work - particularly the first 5 albums - is just sublime in almost every way. On top of his gorgeous voice and haunting melodies, the instrumentality of the songs is immense. David Lindley is obviously a big ...

re: Annual Juneteenth was not really a thing thread - Big Scrub TX
[quote]I'd literally NEVER heard of "Juneteenth" until the end of May last year. Over, no exaggeration, a two DAY period, I saw Google add it to their calendar, my wife asked me about it because there was a FB banner "ad" about it, and I heard some 15 second news blurb about it on the radio while dr...

re: Why can’t U.S. car manufacturers, make some cars without chips? - Big Scrub TX
[quote]I’m not pretending that computerized technology isn’t great or hasn't advanced our civilization. I’m saying relying on any one technology, especially one where an enemy nation is supplying all the parts, isn’t a great idea. [/quote]I agree (with Trump) about not letting China control this typ...

[quote]Prices will eventually drop, lumber isn't going to stay at 1400 a thousand board feet once the federal government end their covid welfare programs and US lumber mills get their workers back.
