    LOL! FWIW, I'm rooting for it to pass, but not optimistic. I don't want the rich and powerful deciding what we see on the internet any more than the next guy. They can't control what you write, so...

    The bill passed the senate. It still has to get through the house, which it won't. Then, Chump has to sign it, which he won't. Don't hold your breath.

    However, what should trump a person's "right to self determination" is the risk of endangering others, especially if the vaccine risk is small (and it must be for approval of the vaccine). In the...

    That is a great example of what I was getting at, Enzo. The point being that there are fewer elected practical moderates and seemingly more (both) right and left wing extremists. Although they aren't...

    edit: @ bob p (I took too long to type) :)

    IMO, your post highlights exactly the problem- politics before policy. If party "A" believes "this", party "B" must believe "that", regardless of policy or practicality of policy. The good of the...

    That is precisely my point. Why should one group of people (the rich and powerful) be given a vehicle to disseminate their ideas and not the rest? It's a recipe for disaster. I don't see it as any...
