re: Prices of goods we use every day are rising at their fastest pace in three years - Scruffy
[quote]The republican candidate. Then when he lost, they should have accepted the results like every other losing candidate before him did and moved on. [/quote]Lets be honest here. The Democratic Party didn’t do that for 4 years after the 2016 election. It is the height of hypocrisy to deny ...

re: Prices of goods we use every day are rising at their fastest pace in three years - Scruffy
This thread consists of 2 types of posters: 1. The doom crowd - predicting hyperinflation and a collapsing dollar 2. The “we are perfectly fine” crowd - rejecting any and all signs that something is wrong economically Is it better to be a 1 or a 2?...

re: Prices of goods we use every day are rising at their fastest pace in three years - Scruffy
[quote]Its coming by the end of summer [/quote]Definitely. Scruffy is more interested in the moment they decide to, if ever, reinstate evictions. That will likely result in another stimulus check to counteract evictions. There are probably a few more on their way. ...

re: Prices of goods we use every day are rising at their fastest pace in three years - Scruffy
[quote] So much melodrama in this thread. [/quote]It is human nature to reject the possibilities of an event like this until it happens. There were likely countless people saying the same thing in 1928. And, no, that isn’t Scruffy saying that there is a repeat of the Great Depression on th...

[quote]Yes. I love the posts in this thread pretending that 1) Trump wasn't POTUS the last time we saw inflation like this and 2) Trump didn't pass 2 massive stimulus packages that kicked all of this off Biden is going to grab the torch and keeping running with it, and should not...

re: Why does society worship science, but ignore natural selection in the human race? - Scruffy
[quote]Those children will never procreate, so their effect on natural selection is nil. [/quote]From a genetic procreation standpoint, you are correct, but Scruffy was referencing survival of the fittest there. Let us be honest here though, there is a multifactorial aspect to this beyond procre...

re: Why does society worship science, but ignore natural selection in the human race? - Scruffy
Honestly, to counter Scruffy’s own opinion, natural selection may not even apply to humanity anymore. We currently define the rules within our system. Is it natural selection if one group of human was to eradicate another? Possibly, depending on how you define it. It is interesting how e...

re: Why does society worship science, but ignore natural selection in the human race? - Scruffy
[quote]Is now and always has been the engine that drives natural selection. The definition of the word "fittest" is ever-changing, to make sense in terms of what characteristics of a mutated individual give them a significant advantage to survive and reproduce, while the rest of it's non-affecte...

re: Why does society worship science, but ignore natural selection in the human race? - Scruffy
[quote] ramble much?[/quote]He is right though. Scruffy has seen children born with essentially no brain, who will never have any comprehension of their own existence, will never speak, can’t see, can’t hear, can’t eat, have seizures almost every day, etc., and many other degrees of that as well....

re: USPS going to crap again? - Scruffy
FedEx is trying their best to follow suit. Ordered something and it was sent out on the 24th. Made its way from Indiana to Tennessee. Then, rather than heading to south LA, it instead went to Auburn, PA. Haven’t had an update in 3 days. fricking Fedex....

re: Surprising: Austin overwhelmingly votes in favor of prop b, which bans public camping - Scruffy
[quote]Dude voted for Biden and for the homeless camps in Austin but thinks he’s a special liberal who isn’t really like the others. [/quote]He has the mentality of individuals who cannot or will not accept their personal responsibility for the actions taken by politicians they voted for. “I vote...

re: Get ready for shortages on air conditioning equipment - Scruffy
Threads like this amaze me. Did no one recognize the shortages, beyond toilet paper, during the last year? Do people still not recognize the decrease/shortages that are still present? Do y’all not actually pay attention when you walk through grocery stores?...

re: Wouldn't it make sense to incentivize people to get vaccinated? - Scruffy
[quote] Why listen to the liars at all? What's the point of listening to the propaganda?[/quote]It has zero to do with me listening or not. When entire industries are forced to comply vis government fiat, there is no choice. ...

re: Wouldn't it make sense to incentivize people to get vaccinated? - Scruffy
[quote]Your entire argument is based in the non- American belief that your rights as a citizen come from The State. That being the case, wouldn’t it make more sense for FREE citizens just to exercise those rights and do whatever the frick they want?[/quote]Absolutely, but if you are trying to incenti...

re: Wouldn't it make sense to incentivize people to get vaccinated? - Scruffy
[quote]Seems with all the bitching on here about things being closed, attendance at sporting events being limited, restaurants not being the same, etc., that'd be incentive enough to get out and get vaccinated so we can go enjoy all those things again.[/quote]Then tell all of the politicians and pol...

re: Wouldn't it make sense to incentivize people to get vaccinated? - Scruffy
[quote]The CDC and local governments generally have the same rules in place for people that are vaccinated vs those that aren't. If there is no benefits to getting vaccinated, then most people think: What is the fricking point? [/quote]Said this many times already. Why would anyone on the fence ab...
