The logic in your second paragraph leaves a little to be desired, but whatever.

There is no way I am watching a significant portion of this thing, but if someone could let me know when Joe Biden challenges Trump to a fight and/or starts doing push-ups, that’d be helpful.

I don’t think there is really much of a downside to a candidate having a twitch account. Notwithstanding any persistent issues with turnout young voters experience, it is probably not a bad idea to engage with them where they’re at! It is not like 0% of young people are going to turn out. Read more

Great. Again, parenting priorities are different. For me, for a variety of reasons, it is not worth forcing my kids to go hungry or forcing a fight or a tantrum, which is unpleasant for me and I imagine produces a fair amount of anxiety. I honestly don’t care whether their expressed preference is borne of immaturity Read more

I don’t necessarily think having a fight over turning video games off and having a fight over me forcing a kid to eat something he says he doesn’t like or making him go without food are the same thing. But in any event, yes, you have to force your kid to do things they don’t want to do, that is indeed part of being a Read more

Thanks, but I’m guessing most parents are aware that they can just refuse to give kids what they want. For a variety of reasons, I’m not particularly interested in making my kids go hungry if I make something they haven’t tasted before and they say they don’t like it. Nor am I interested in having a fight or inducing Read more

Let what happen?  Your kids eat full sized, adult portions?

When I first saw this tweet, I was mostly just confused. What does it mean that you are not going to “assent” to a kid’s menu? That you aren’t ever going to order off one for your kids? I mean, alright, enjoy paying $15 or $20 for an adult entree that your 7 year old will take 3 bites of. Or is she, like, going to Read more

I understand what the article is going for, but it sure seems like it is significantly easier for her to vote, not harder. Because while I’m not one of those people who thinks “I’ve never been to a post office” is an “excellent” reason not to vote, I don’t know that anyone needs a lecture from someone whose state Read more

Uh huh. So you went from “Here’s what people should do 13 years so they can keep driving a gas powered car for another 15 years beyond 2035” to “I am seriously and earnestly considering an EV purchase right now because I am now environmentally conscious.”  Good for you, don’t get whiplash.

Then I guess we’ll just have to add “considering the consequences of your actions” to the long, ever-growing list of concepts you are just unable to grasp.

You seem to be confused about my point here. I am not claiming to have the authority to force you to buy an electric vehicle at any point. I am simply asking that you consider the fact that your actions have consequences for other people, that maybe your desire to drive a gas-powered vehicle (a desire which exists why Read more

Fair points all, and my point is not that everyone absolutely must have an electric vehicle by 2035 or else they are an asshole. I can think of lots of good reasons why someone might not be able to have an electric vehicle by 2035. “I just don’t want to,” which is essentially what the OP is saying, is not one of them.

Or people can accept that internal combustion engine vehicles contribute to climate change that could have catastrophic consequences (not to mention just regular old air pollution), and just transition, as they are able, to electric vehicles that contribute less to climate change. Like, we can all just take seriously Read more

Assuming someone gets into the governor’s office who is inclined to rescind the order. First of all, it’s difficult to believe that taking action to address climate change is going to become less popular in California as time goes on. Second of all, the next election is 2022, and presumably you’d pencil Newsom, as the Read more

well, that’s BS. Are you telling me that if I filled up a plastic milk jug with gasoline, stuffed a rag in the top, lit it, and threw it in your kitchen window, it wouldn’t burn your house to the ground? Read more

You are right, I wasn’t laughing at the idea that we should cut defense budgets, I was laughing at the idea that Joe Biden or Congressional Democrats would do it.
