    NeoconMan, what do profit margins of corporations have to do with voters? You seem to be confusing corporations with government, which theoretically, in the US, is supposed to be responsible and represent the interest of all of the citizens of the US, not just some subset of them that you label ‘voters’. Corporations are supposed to be responsible and represent the interests of their shareholders, not citizens, much less the ‘voters’ in general. Maximizing current and future profit in response to changing external factors is how they do that.

    Wily Bily, supply and demand curves set the price. If supply is limited and demand is high, profit can also be high. Gouging is a subjective term meaning that you don’t like the price because of external factors limiting supply and thus allowing high prices, no? Seems to me that the factors limiting supply of oil at the present time have to do largely with political activity. The oil company executives are doing what they are hired to do; maximize the return on their shareholders investment as external factors change.

    Why do you equate national productivity with corporate profit margins? They are the result of completely different decision making processes, aren’t they? Just because it is politically expedient to make decisions that increase inflation and debt doesn’t mean that corporations have to or should follow suit and cause their investors to lose money, no?

    A few bullet points on why renewable energy is a very expensive proposition:https://fee.org/articles/41-inconvenient-truths-on-the-new-energy-economyIf you are math and science literate, unlikely for most commentators here obviously, here is the source article with details, math and physics explained and sourced: https://www.manhattan-institute.org/green-energy-revolution-near-impossible

    Frankly, green energy, unless you include nuclear as the EU does, is ridiculously expensive, inefficient and polluting, at least when it is scaled to meet the demands of an industrial civilization.

    Didn’t crime increase dramatically in most big cities after the George Floyd incident? So if the Starbucks that are closing happen to be in one of the areas in a particular city with a dramatic crime increase, which certainly wouldn’t be every Starbucks in a particular city, it is quite possible that the closures are actually just due to the crime uptick. On the other hand, if I worked in a Starbucks that had an increase in crime with no increase in compensation, I might be more inclined to join a unionization effort.

    Looks a lot like evolution in action. People removing themselves from the gene pool, and the same with their beliefs, just not being propagated to the future. Not necessarily the ones that you think should. It’s like that a lot in complex systems.

    I’m just wondering how many women in Colorado, where abortion is legal up to birth, will take advantage of New York’s generous offer of a free flight to New York and an abortion, as a kind of vacation? If you’re using abortion as birth control, this could be a win-win; the libs in New York can virtue signal and you get the flight to New York. As long as you do it in the first 8 weeks or so, it’s really nothing, right? I wonder if they provide a hotel stay too, and how long a person can stay.

    alan.myers14 about 9 hours ago: “Also, closing loopholes like no background checks at gun shows and on-line sales would go a long way towards reducing the number of guns available.” Background checks are required at all gun shows. On-line sales require the gun be shipped to a gun store or FFL holder where the individual purchasing the gun has to pass the same background check as if he were buying the gun from that store or FFL. Exactly what loopholes did you think you were pointing out, or are you just parroting gun control talking points?

    I thought that it was the evil Republicans who want everybody to have an assault rifle. How does that work for totalitarians who want everybody disarmed?
