More thoughts on the MLB: this culture war stuff really screws up our ability to regulate corporations. The MLB and other corporations I believe made the bet that Republicans will never regulate or tax them no matter what they do. Democrats want to regulate businesses and tax them too. But once specific corporations take sides in the cultural war, Democrats become defensive of those corporations regardless of any prior issues because those corporations are 'on their side'. I bet you there won't be many democrats making a big fuss about cities paying for baseball stadiums now. I bet people on social justice twitter are going on about "Baseball is the great American pastime."

Amazon is going to eventually consume the universe but as long as Jeff Bezos continues to promote social justice in Washington Post and annoy Republicans, the democrats are going to let them continue to grow. No one wants to regulate Coco-Cola because they complained about the voting rights law and Coco-Cola is the not racist soda. (???)

What part of that commercial had anything to do with the Olympics. How many Olympic athletes regularly partake in giant glasses of Coca Cola.

I'm not sure what point you're making about cancel culture and Democrats though.

I guess since this is kind of the republican/democrat thread of choice still,

One of my "neighbors" a few blocks off now has a "Trump 2020, make liberals cry again" flag up. I have no idea what the purpose of all that yard litter is now. It's kind of a self-punitive way of being bitter or trying to annoy your neighbors, I think.

People still fly confederate flags with the assumption that succession and treason against your own country are still correct ways of doing things.

I can imagine trump flags will be around for years.

It's the "make liberals cry again" part. The ship has sailed for two consecutive Trump terms. Maybe he's banking on crossing out the 20 and replacing it with a 24.

Trump really delivered for America though.

Does this mean all the Republicans are crying now?

If he were a TRUE patriot, he'd have a 2024 flag already. I know they're selling those because a coworker has someone in her neighborhood flying one

The republican party today is full of dumb motherfuckers and fails to reflect the population at large or connect to them. If it can't reinvent itself soon, ditch the Trump strain and diversify itself, I don't think they'll be winning any election anymore. I've been saying this quite a few times now but really. How on earth are they going to win in 2024, 2028, 2032 with their current platform or trajectory?

From embracing conspiracy mumbo jumbo, outright racism, anti-globalism, outdated economic philosophies, being anti-diversity ... they're really not doing too well.

How did Trump win with, um, no coherent platform or trajectory at all?

Conspiracy mumbo jumbo, outright racism, anti-globalism, outdated economic philosophies, being anti-diversity worked beautifully for him didn't it?

And he only lost re-election by a narrow whisker, now isn't the time to write off the Republicans based on their views being marginal.

Meanwhile, I'm not sure what woke gibberish my sister is lapping up these days, she keeps coming out with weird stuff and finishing with 'hur dur stupid Republicans'.

"The patriarchy is preventing us making electricity from clouds, hur dur stupid Republicans"

The demographics are changing slowly but surely. Trump's voting base is almost exclusively older white men, with weird pockets like the florida cuban community mixed in between. He certainly doesn't appeal to a wider range of people and when the old & white population dies out, the republicans lose their most important voting population. Instead of reinventing the platform though I'm reading lots of stuff about attempted voter suppression in white minority areas.

Image from the Biden gas crisis. Took him only 4 months to destroy Trump's energy independence.

What's the deal with that? I'm out of the loop.

Some pipeline on the East Coast got hit with a ransomware attack. Something like 25% to 50% of the fuel goes through that pipe. Gas prices are expected to go up but it really isn't a big deal. Certainly no reason to panic stock up on gas.

How many times do people need to be reminded to not put fuel in grocery bags.

I was aware of the ransomware attack but not how that could be related to a gas shortage. Concerning that people are dumber than I expected.

Why would he be wearing a rucksack if he's just got out of a car?

Its just a red hat, no actual evidence its MAGA - except all the surrounding stupidity I guess.
