    You're going with really extreme takes on conservative arguments, and changing the goal posts from professions that offer steady income versus high risk-high reward professions to STEM VS Art.

    The...
  2. I have never stated that everyone struggling to...

    I have never stated that everyone struggling to pay off student debt is irresponsible.

    That doesn't mean it's a good idea for the federal government to spend over a trillion dollars to eradicate...
  3. I've been pretty explicit in my understanding...

    I've been pretty explicit in my understanding that policies have tradeoffs. Pretty much every policy is going to have some innocent people who are worse off and some who are better off. It's a matter...
  4. There are much better biblical comparisons for...

    There are much better biblical comparisons for anyone in favor of cancelling debt.

    But there's a difference between learning someone else got a free lunch, after you paid for a lunch, and learning...
  5. There is certainly a moral component here, but...

    There is certainly a moral component here, but logic should also apply. When two of the most prominent Democratic Senators are talking about this, it sends a signal for ordinary people to pay the...

    My apologies to Anya's fan. The Warren Ellis Avengers arc which focused on her was pretty good.
  7. The problem with this scenario is that people who...

    The problem with this scenario is that people who were irresponsible are getting the benefit compared to people who made sacrifices to pay off their debt.

    If this outlook were a unique problem to...
  8. For the sake of argument, let's give the...

    For the sake of argument, let's give the popularization of the 40 hour workweek as being in 1869, when Ulysses S Grant guaranteed it for federal workers.

    This gets into the question of why colleges are so expensive.

    One of the major problems is that there's no incentive to cut spending.

    One of the major reasons things are so expensive is...
  10. I can appreciate that. There are all sorts of...

    I can appreciate that.

    There are all sorts of tradeoffs. There is also a bit of a class element, in the idea that student debt would be repaid for college students, but that blue-collar workers...
  11. It's probably about both, as well as ego. ...

    It's probably about both, as well as ego.

    With the forty hour workweek, everyone who was working during the same time was treated the same.

    With a cancellation of debt, someone who went to...
  12. I'm generally not in favor of giving the wealthy...

    I'm generally not in favor of giving the wealthy money, or forgiving their debts.

    The COVID comparison isn't a great one. Everyone is going to benefit from a vaccine. Distributing a vaccine isn't...
  13. In this case, Silk fits the story he's telling...

    In this case, Silk fits the story he's telling (Spider-Women teaming up.)

    It would also be politically problematic to neglect the one spider-woman of color.
  14. Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren have suggested...

    Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren have suggested that Joe Biden should use an executive order to forgive college debt. This goes beyond earlier Democratic plans, in which there were promises to...

    To be fair, he does offer a solution.



    I'm not sure it's a workable one.

    Amazing Spider-Man Volume 5 #24-29:

    Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man #308-310:

    I bingeread the later Powers arcs to catch up on the end of the series.

  17. Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man #308-309:...

    Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man #308-309: I reread it because it was on two "Best of" lists. I'm not sure this clash with Sandman is quite on that level, but it's a good take on Spider-Man...
  18. The question is whether it's a principle or...

    The question is whether it's a principle or whether it's posturing.

    The standard is pretty simple. The way to determine that is to see how Democrats react in situations in which it doesn't cost...
  19. My argument was that Democrats step down until...

    My argument was that Democrats step down until there's a political cost for their party.

    I'm not sure this counts, given that Hill put them in a situation where there were going to be political...

    New York City schools went digital-only a week ago, after the city's COVID positivity rate hit a particular threshold.

    Read the original post and comments again with the understanding that Clickhole is a well-known satire website (an offshoot of the Onion that is styled on various clickbait websites) and see if...

    Doug Jones lost his reelection bid by twenty points, so I don't think the black women were enough to get him over the top. Presumably they went for him in November 2020 as well.

    Doug Jones would...

    In Fairfax's case, two women have independently accused him of sexual assault, and people were aware of the allegations some time before it came out.

    A Democratic Congressman was aware of the...

    Is this how you want people to respond to you if you get something wrong?

    Katie Hill had a relationship with a 22 year old campaign staffer, and there were leaked photos.

    She was probably not...
  25. With Franken, it didn't cost the Democrats much...

    With Franken, it didn't cost the Democrats much to push him out. There are enough members of the party who think it's a good thing that an elderly white guy would be replaced by a woman.
