    The college/university thread

    How are kids chosen to go to their primary and secondary schools in those areas? Is it purely geographic or are there other factors?

    The college/university thread

    That's data, not the actual metrics/scoring method for this program. I don't disagree, there are a lot of logistics to sort out. I don't pretend to have all the answers, but my larger point was that this problem can only be solved with a slow, ground up approach that goes beyond the short term...

    The college/university thread

    Except you don't know what metrics they are using and how they are weighted. It's all being kept secret. That's asinine. Also "adversity?" That's entirely subjective. It's bullshit. Anyone who really cared about this beyond a quick talking point would deal with it from the ground up. I.e., if...

    The college/university thread

    It’s positively Orwellian. A scoring method that they refuse to actually explain in detail, and applicants themselves will not even get to see. This is a way to socially engineer outcomes as a means of achieving an arbitrary goal of diversity.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    It's generally easier to spot right wing extremism because mainstream media and academia both lean (increasingly) left, and therefore you're less likely to see reporting on left-wing extremism for what it is. Think of a straight line, with a right side (-), left side (+), and a center (0)...

    Do it, and tell me your planned itinerary through BC (if any) or Alberta. I can make road recommendations.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Fine. Too bad he applied it incorrectly. Blasie-Ford was the one who came forth with an unfounded, 35 year old accusation against a then Supreme Court candidate Blasie-Ford's lawyer didn't object Blasie-Ford wasn't disclosing confidential information Blasie-Ford wasn't interviewed by legal...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    I wasn’t accusing you of being a so called expert. That particular vitriol was directed towards the “judge.” I then took that opportunity to editorialize about so called experts in general. Correct, but my point was that unless you know of documentation that supplements/contradicts what I...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Not one second of that piece was devoted to discussing Congress’s request for redacted information. Here’s what was said, though. Andrew Neopolitano: - said that the word collusion entered the political discourse courtesy of Rudy Guiliani, blatantly ignoring the last 2 years of leftist...

    On my way home I saw a cute Japanese girl driving a Tacoma. I was nursing a semi. The two may have been related.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Yeah, but decisions based on sophomoric attempts at media journalism appears consistent with modern Democratic mien, sadly. (That’s a shot at the Dem Party, not GRtak) GRtak... you were making the legal case for the AG to break a particular law. Therefore, you should have no problem offering...

    I agree with this. What else got him banned, then? (Before anyone here disingenuously tries to assume I am defending Alex Jones... I think he's a raving lunatic/conspiracy theorist, but that alone shouldn't get you banned... not unless Facebook wants to do that to everyone else guilty of the...

    2019 Chevrolet Camaro - now even uglier

    I liked the 5th gen... although I was initially harsh on the revision (I called it a Camarolude), I’ve warmed to it. I also liked the 6th gen initially, except the rear was just too tame. When I first saw the 6th gen refresh it reinforced my belief that GM can never get it all right. They made...

    :oops: Really? For cruise control? How high is that engine revving if you’re on a steady cruise at 110-120 kph?
