You’re wrong about that bit. Ships routinely drop goods from Asia and continue on to the mainland. Foreign flag just can’t load goods from Hawaii bound for the mainland on the stop over. High prices are due to retailers capitalizing on the isolated market. They use the Jones Act as an excuse. Foreign fleets pay Read more

I didn’t think humanitarian aid after a massive disaster was “political bullshit”, but apparently even helping other human beings is now partisan. Read more

The Jones Act is terrible. It’s a major reason that Puerto Rico is bankrupt. The island could be a major shipping and trading hub, but it’s precluded from earning a living. Then what is supposed to drive its economy? Tourism alone isn’t enough. Read more

You mean a Star Trek show did something socially progressive? Will wonders never cease! I thought up till now that Star Trek was a safe space for conservative white guys.

That’s a very good point—how many people (hell, how many Trekkies) are going to be willing to shell out for a CBS-only streaming service? I have Prime and Netflix—do I really want to shell out even more money for a service that’s going to have only a handful of shows I want to watch?

Also, all these “no-one-cares-about-the-Rams” photos are at kickoff when half the crowd is still trying to get through security.

For those of us in SD, I’m actually surprised at how fast we’re getting (have gotten?) over the Chargers and the NFL. Turns out life post-football ain’t all that bad! I’m guessing history will point to this period as the beginning of the end for the NFL’s popularity, combined of course with CTE, wife beatings and Read more
