Common sense! Bill Maher. Bill Maher! OP is quite the scholar, why aren't we listening to this genius?
Just saying. He is a big lefty and can't believe how dumb the left is now. Good grief ..... more than 2 genders. Letting your kids decide what their gender is when they're in preschool or kindergarten. The party of no common sense.

As war rages in Ukraine and debate over drilling on American public lands is once again in the news, a new dashboard from the Center for Western Priorities highlights the hypocrisy of the oil industry’s push to throw even more public lands open to drilling. Combined, the oil and gas industry holds leases to more than 25 million acres of publicly-owned minerals, roughly half of which sit unused. Companies now hold more than 9,000 approved, but unused, drilling permits on national public lands, all of which could be put to use today. Further, oil production on public lands is near all time highs, despite industry claims that the Biden administration has suppressed domestic production.

for all you guys who let politics run your lives, I feel bad for you .
There is not a damn thing any of you can do to prevent what’s happening out there . All politicians suck a$$. They only care about their status and their wallets. Sooner you guys accept this the happier you will be .

“The Center for Western Priorities is a (non)partisan conservation and advocacy organization that serves as a source of accurate information, promotes responsible policies and practices, and ensures accountability at all levels to protect land, water, and communities in the American West.”

You don’t drill for oil where none exists and you don’t drill for oil where the cost exceeds the profits in the end. Keep blabbing about data with no context. Oil is selling at record prices, if these companies could, they’d be pulling as much as possible out of the ground.

Your point?

There are cultures all over the world who assign more than two genders and have for centuries. Native American societies recognized as many as seven with apparently all of them naming at least three and most recognizing five. Bisexuality and homosexuality - among men - appear to have been common in ancient China with the records of many in the nobility engaging in same sex relationships and it wasn't regarded as unusual. Women, even then, were considered far less important so their relationships are rarely recorded. The "two genders" binary construct is primarily Christian European in origin.

We should teach that in schools, huh?

Yes, I believe in an infinite number of genders. We shouldn’t be tied to such stupid concepts in our society and treat everyone as an individual. No more public bathroom/locker room separation. Everything goes. Let it all hang out.

Shock Doctrine… disaster capitalism. Wish more people understood this type of opportunism.

Maher did an entire segment recently talking directly to right wing folk who think he suddenly agrees with them. He basically said he’s sick of the very vocal minority on the left and that more of then left needs to slap them down but that the right is out of touch with reality. Basically he’s like most of us, he’s wants the weirdos to get slapped down, we can be understanding and inclusive without allowing insanity to rule everything.

I used to dislike him because he was so lib but I agree with his criticism of right and left. Unfortunately for the dems., weirdos are controlling things way too much. The right has a disgusting faction but they aren't controlling things nearly as much.

Open borders, printing money, regulating gas causing inflation. Let criminals out of jail when crime is spiking. Defense of crime because someone had a relative who was wronged in the past. Just too many examples. Does Jimmy carter's regime ring any bells? When bill maher starts pissing on you, you need to wake up. It would be like rush telling Republicans they have no common sense.
This is a lot of bullcrap in one post.

You mean the pipeline that was only 20% complete and never had a drop of oil passed through it? And even if it was complete and operational, it would have Canadian tar sands oil that cannot be refined in our refineries. Talk about exposing your partisanship as well as your ignorance.
My coworker who thinks she is in the middle dropped Keystone on me when complaining about gas prices being Biden’s fault. “Deb, Google is your friend.”

When you can't dispute their points, you attack the source. Not typical for Mr. Christ.
That’s sir savior to you. I always consider the source, hence the independent status. Misinformation is mainstream now, the bobble heads feed on confirmation bias.

The nonsense suggesting oil companies are chomping on the bit to explore and drill more would be amusing if that misinformation wasn't so damaging. Fact is oil companies have chosen to reward their investors rather than invest in new exploration. They are loving their profitability and have no intention of changing course to help resolve social issues.

Our political parties aren't driven to achieve and make progress for Americans. They're driven to argue and point out how inept and corrupt the other side of the aisle is.

I’ve noticed “common sense” is frequently used by people who engage in simplistic thinking. Your posts in this thread are an example.

Dems pander to the AOC crowd similar to Rs with the MAGAs to get votes. No implication of which one is worse.
Democrats have to pander to the far left of the party because there aren't any republicans that will work with them to pass legislation. MAGA's have made it impossible for the GOP to be a governing party.

Current problems with guns and inflation? Most in this country would agree on background checks before you get a gun. Most would agree that too much regulation on drilling is causing inflation and should be lightened up. The extremes of each party will not allow it.
Um, no.
