Penrodster comments on May 15, 2019:
I chose Fact Based Trolls (TM) But with caveats. My personal example is Rosa Parks. She's been sanctified by the history but I figure she was a stubborn, angry, sore and tired person and that was exactly the hero we needed right there. Churchill and Socrates were jerks who helped save the world. That's not really a support of the troll, almost always the world is better off if they would fall into a Cheeto induced coma. But every once in a while that jackass 6 std out from the norm is useful.
I’m new to the group... has anyone read Alex Epstein’s “The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels”?
Penrodster comments on May 13, 2019:
I've seen a YouTube presentation of his, I largely agree with his take. My opinion: A hundred years ago gasoline was a waste product dumped into rivers. A hundred years from now people will be shocked we burn oil and coal by the ton. The technology will evolve and improve but trying to force the issue will be catastrophic.

Penrodster comments on Apr 28, 2019:
Put me in the lukewarmer camp also, though I don't put much weight in CO2 as a driver. I think it's an indicator. Worse, I believe the focus on CO2 makes it difficult to deal with larger climate problems.

Why do you think IMMIGRATION is a VERY touchy topic?
Penrodster comments on Apr 23, 2019:
Before it became the screamfest it is now (10 yrs?), I saw a co-worker (Mexican) yell at the news because there was argument in congress over limitations. It wasn't a rational response and I think it was borne of desperation. His family is still there, I'm sure he helped with money but crime, cartels and govt are largely the same thing in Mexico and further south. If we can't help there is no help. We have more resources but we can't take everyone that's being hurled at our border. All the solutions are somewhere between terrible and God-awful.

Mueller Report Makes Obama Look Bad This opinion piece posted today on CNN.

Hi, Folks! Thanks for Visiting! Just a quick pulse of visitors and members.
Penrodster comments on Apr 23, 2019:
Bring it on because it will come anyway, we may as well prepare. This won't be easy. Logging was hard work but a moderately intelligent (but conscientious guy) could do it. New technolgy 3D scans and then cuts the log in the most efficient manner possible. Great for forests and mankind but only loggers that can handle PLCs will work. We're leaving people behind and I see no solution.

Out of a group of 20k I would guess there are 5 you can outright identify as uncivil without any equivocation. I would suggest eliminate those, use some star chamber methodology to choose candidates.

I've gotten a lot of backlash for the truths I have said about Trump.
Penrodster comments on Apr 22, 2019:
I have to tune out most of the lying claims. I start checking in and it's some idiotic thing about "these hamburgers are nowhere near a mile high." It's difficult to wade through he mass of attacks when the media goes full tilt on simple hyperbole, they still go insane over "Mexico will pay for it!" I had to leave FB because I was having to defend someone I did not like and did not vote for from idiotic attacks.

Penrodster comments on Apr 19, 2019:
Fixing the executive pay packages is fraught with peril, most suggested methods are a top down approach that would be administered by other executives. I'd like to see what you suggest but implemented by stock holders. Harsh light of day on their books would help this happen but I have little hope.

Who are "they"?
Penrodster comments on Apr 19, 2019:
I think the opposition to Trump is making him a better president. I do wish they would be sane about it but maybe their insanity is a requirement for Trump working out so well. If it was possible to work with the left wing of the govt I think he might compromise on issues I care about.
Do you consider yourself to be a feminist?
Penrodster comments on Apr 19, 2019:

In sowing chaos, the media has done the work of the Russians.
Penrodster comments on Apr 19, 2019:
DEAR GOD, YES! I like that opposition is holding Trump in check some, that's the job of opposition. BUT every indication is the loudest mouths out there are completely willing to subvert the country, foreign policy, economic policy, regular peoples jobs, regular peoples health care. Any claim of collusion I check on immediately leads to the accuser making a $100,000,000 off of a shady business deal with the Russians. Meanwhile, Trump is arming Ukrainians against Russian troops and killing Russian troops in Syria. (Excuse me. I will take a deep breath now. I apologize for yelling. I frightened my dog and I need to calm her down, let her know everything is OK.)

Penrodster comments on Apr 18, 2019:
I didn't vote for Trump, I'm more conservative-libertarian and hated him during the primaries. However, while I still hate what he said during the primaries his actions as president have been mostly good (IMO.) Anymore, I ignore any twitter storm and wait to see what actions result before making my personal yay/nay decision. Trump has been surprising me enough I've had to re-evaluate my methodology.

Is the 'Intellectual Dark Web' Politically Diverse ?
Penrodster comments on Apr 18, 2019:
There is not biased attacks against Liberals, there is decidedly attacks against identitarians who hold fascist views. Morons like AOC who hold they should be allowed to bulldoze houses because gov't workers can remake them to a higher standard. Those people get mocked, those people that never had to fix a DMV mistake.

Huge tracts of land through middle America taken for railway and other projects. I felt like GW was a scam to increase gov't power before, the idea is cemented now.
