  1. What percentage of Texas's population do you...

    What percentage of Texas's population do you expect to die as a result of Abbott's decision?



    It probably is something to aim for, but it doesn't seem to be the prevailing attitude.
  2. These are good questions. The policy solutions...

    These are good questions. The policy solutions are going to vary depending on where you are. The average salary for teachers is okay, especially when you take into account the benefits (insurance,...

    It is also worth noting that winning CPAC straw polls isn't always a great indication of political success. Ron Paul won a few times in 2010 and 2011.

    Rand Paul won three times (2013, 2014, 2015)...

    Many politicians got a shot of the vaccine, including Pence. If Pence was eligible, an older, fatter guy was too.

  5. I don't think hiring new teachers leads to more...

    I don't think hiring new teachers leads to more experienced teachers getting pushed out. It's more that programs meant to hire smart people to be teachers for a few years, like Teach For America or a...

    It's a fair point that some of the people who take a teaching job expecting it to be temporary do end up sticking around.

    Teaching does still have a high turnover rate, so that's a major issue to...

    Soule is a decent writer, and can probably be even more prolific than Spencer (he can write seven issues in a given month) so he would provide Marvel with the bonus of at least 24 issues an year that...
  9. There's an idea that the majority of education...

    There's an idea that the majority of education spending is local spending from property taxes and the like, but it is really messy and variable. On average, state sources provide more funding than...
  10. A problem with this approach is that doing the...

    A problem with this approach is that doing the equivalent of expanding the likes of Teach For America and Teaching Fellows is mainly going to fill the teaching profession with people who have no...

    In the US, the majority of the debate is about what the minimum wage should be. If it isn't updated often enough (in the US, it hasn't been increased since July 2009) it's almost the equivalent of...
  12. I am legitimately interested in what you have to...

    I am legitimately interested in what you have to say on the topic. It's a public forum, so there isn't much point in DMs on a question of policy.
  13. To be clear, I do consider athletics to be one of...

    To be clear, I do consider athletics to be one of those nonessential services that raises costs of tuition.

    I certainly agree that there should be more room for trade schools.

    I'm not convinced...
  14. Many forms of price fixing would be difficult,...

    Many forms of price fixing would be difficult, but there are a few major categories where we can cut costs: rent, higher education and health care.

    These are costs that have been increasing...

    That's not entirely true. Nate Silver thought Trump had a shot in 2016 based on the polls.

    There is a statute of limitations of ten years for mortgage fraud (up from five years as the result of a 2009 law) so it would need to be something he did recently to be prosecuted.

    In a recent poll, only 4 percent of Trump supporters are in favor of QAnon....

    For February, I'm continuing with sub-challenges of watching at least five films by black directors, five films nominated for Critics Choice awards this year, and five films starring one actress:...

    There are two main knocks against Newsom.

    The first is personal hypocrisy, with the incident where he was at a fundraiser at the French Laundry, which violated the spirit of the rules he had...

    This is a valid point.

    I'm sure there are examples of this in the past. Progressives liked representative Barbara Jordan after she gave two of the top speeches in the 20th Century....

    It does raise some weird questions.

    One factor is that it seems the penalty is the same no matter what. There's no grace, or sense of proportionality.

    Jonathan Chait has written about some of...

    The comments on RBG didn't reference her lung cancer, and were more about progressives making inflated claims about her qualities.

    If someone were to mock the most ridiculous praise of Limbaugh...

    There were nastier allegations in Leaving Neverland, including Jackson exchanging jewelry for sex. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/jan/25/michael-jackson-documentary-leaving-neverland

    Nope. But that is a different argument than the idea that the response of unnamed conservatives to Ginsburg’s death justifies progressives acting a particular way.

    Which ones are you talking about? And do you think they were right to do so?
