re: The American system was built on slave labor - BigB123
Even it were built in slavery, what is the proposed alternative? The biggest challenge I see with society today is we have massive groups of people who are excellent at pointing out imperfection but an inversely proportional volume of people providing any workable solutions that haven’t already b...

re: ONOZ - Texas Covid is on Fire - Sensationalist Headlines - BigB123
It has relevance because the higher the number the more likely there are undiagnosed carriers. The problem is there are so many factors that create a moving target (increase in public awareness, testing availability, contact tracing advancements) that you can’t really come up with an accurate numbe...

re: Durham Colleagues anticipating indictments before Labor Day - BigB123
I don’t get why he would wait anyway. They are looking at folks below the Director level of the FBI (and possibly CIA). That has little relevance to the election, unless you as a voter draw the conclusion that it shows weakness in the White House for being willfully ignorant of the activities of ...

re: Will we ever get to a point where "white" and "black" can be used interchangeably? - BigB123
How long do you think we will have “pure” whites people? Within 100 years, I will be expect there are no more than 10-20% of Americans who can trace 100% of their lineage to Europe. Eventually the only “race” in America will be the American race. Of course, the same type of mindset will just ...

re: dim wants history classes abolished in state's schools - BigB123
I’m still trying to figure out the gripe if these people. My high school and junior high history classes spent a sizable chunk of time discussing slavery (including things like 3/5ths rule), the Underground Railroad (Harriet Tubman), the 15th Amendment (Fredrick Douglas), early leaders of the NAACP ...

re: Why are stock market returns higher with a Democrat as president? - BigB123
In the last 40 years, taxes have generally gone down regardless of party. Clinton decreases the capital gains rate. Under Obama taxes went up slightly but he benefited coming into office right at the end of the Great Recession. Biden plans to dramatically jack up taxes. Basically, dig into t...

re: US Military question(s): Do all branches train snipers? - BigB123
The problem with trying to be a SEAL is....what are you going to do in the Navy before you get selected and/or if you wash out? I’d still recommend the Marines over the Army. If nothing else you have much better location of bases (almost guaranteed on the coast...Cali, Florida to Virginia, Hawaii...

re: American Conservatism is Fiddling While Rome Burns - BigB123
I’d consider myself a pragmatic libertarian. There are two things I disagree with in his classification of libertarians: 1) Border policy needs to align with social policy. In a vacuum, I would be ok with open borders with small government. My primary concern in the current environment is the ...
