  2. The Absurd Criticism of Rand Paul’s Rachel Levine Questioning https://www.nationalreview.com/2021/02/the-absurd-criticism-of-rand-pauls-rachel-levine-questioning/ Having reviewed the evidence from all sides, the judges in Bell’s case concluded that it was “highly unlikely that a child aged 13 or under would be competent to give consent to the administration of puberty blockers,” adding that it was also “doubtful that a child aged 14 or 15 could understand and weigh the long-term risks and consequences of the administration of puberty blockers.” Accordingly, the court
  3. You do realize Griddy only has something like 29,000 customers, and those customers were made aware of the risks associated with the Griddy model? Griddy even sent out 'flash notices' that their electric rates were poised to skyrocket and even suggested to customers they switch to another provider, which in Texas is a fairly quick and painless procedure. Do TVA customers have a viable alternative?
  4. Corporations are creations of the State, and shall therefore conform to State dictates.
  5. I'm sure a number of Texas citizens and their families did. They were prepared.

  8. No, I won't freeze. I personally have backup plans in place in case of an extended power outage. Do you?
  9. Good. Texans are great people, wanting less federal government intervention in their lives. Something socialists like yourself and Mr. Cillizza can't stand. I'll take independence over dependence on the federal government any day, as apparently so do most Texans.
  10. Nobody or no organization is perfect, Dante. Even your precious federal government.
  11. So you are saying Mr. Paul shouldn't have an opinion when it comes to offering gender altering medicines and surgeries to minors? If that is so then exactly who in Congress should have an opinion, only those who are sex change "experts"?
  12. Because it is. Unless you hate the concept of Freedom of Association, which apparently you do. Because it is. Why the hell have a vote to organize if the rules/laws are now slanted enough that it will pass every time?
  13. The next time I have issues with my teeth, I shall call Rand Paul.
  14. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9300987/Rand-Paul-likens-gender-surgery-genital-mutilation-exchange-trans-nominee-HHS-deputy.html Rand Paul compares gender change surgery for minors to genital mutilation in furious exchange with Biden's transgender pick for assistant HHS secretary Rand Paul angrily confronted Joe Biden's pick for assistant secretary for Health and Human Services on Thursday, likening gender changes surgeries to genital mutilation and pushing the transgender nominee on if they would allow minors to decide if they want to go on hormones to stop puberty.
  15. Syracuse University Is Not ‘Okay’ https://www.nationalreview.com/2021/02/syracuse-university-is-not-okay/ Even this goes much too far. Was all of the offense and anger really justified? Was there any supporting evidence to suggest that the student who made the post even knew that the OK symbol was sometimes appropriated by hate groups, much less that she was using it with similarly bigoted intentions? No, but sadly, the statement gets much, much worse. It goes on to call the post “an unacceptable lapse in judgment and lack of awareness on the part of our entire team,” apologize
  16. https://mises.org/wire/pro-act-not-just-union-handout-its-assault-freedom-association-itself There have already been mountains of coverage of the disastrous results of this policy. Former Mises summer fellow Peter St. Onge has written about how the scheme is likely to result in lower wages for contractors turned employees. But that only applies to those fortunate enough to keep working. Writing at Reason, Billy Binion has documented numerous instances of freelancers in California being basically blacklisted from numerous companies located outside the state because of the new bureau
