  1. If you want to see Alaska the easy way, I would...

    If you want to see Alaska the easy way, I would really recommend a cruise from Seattle/Vancouver to Alaska, or vice versa. You could start out or end up visiting Denali National Park (which we...
  2. You could possibly leave the car in long term...

    You could possibly leave the car in long term parking somewhere and take a cruise from either Seattle or Vancouver. We once found a deal where we could rent a motel room for a night in Vancouver,...

    This is an old Russian trope used to deflect criticisms of Russian behavior that would otherwise be difficult to defend. Russians aren't the only ones who do this kind of thing, but it helps to...
  4. They are, but things have changed a lot on ships...

    Same. I’d only do a cruise because I’d like to see the shoreline from the water. Actually same for the Mediterranean. On one hand, I’d enjoy the views and generally enjoy being in the water. On...
  5. Right. When I started this thread, the reported...

    Right. When I started this thread, the reported outbreak was still largely confined the the Wuhan province in China, although we now know that the Trump administration and Congress had been well...

    We did have something of a bizarre incident on this trip. About halfway through it at 12:30 am, there was a sudden announcement "Man overboard! Man overboard! Port side!" We were already asleep,...
  7. My wife and I love to travel, and we always took...

    My wife and I love to travel, and we always took land trips until about 8 years ago. Then we took a transatlantic from Florida to Rome, and we enjoyed it a lot more than we expected. The idea of...

    Since the cruise reported on in this thread, my wife and I had not traveled on a cruise ship or attempted to book a cruise until recently. Most cruise lines appear to have survived by offering...

    Nonsense. Putin shoehorned himself into power on New Years Eve in 2000 by dislodging Yeltsin, a former local Party boss who was a corrupt drunk. Ever since then, Putin has schemed to keep himself...

    No surprise, but these leaked Kremlin documents represent additional evidence of Putin's highly successful intelligence operation to meddle in a US election.
  11. Poll: I understand, but I think that you are equating...

    I suppose that one would have to imagine a situation in which there can be racial tensions between poor people or middle class people of different racial characteristics. Can you imagine...
  12. Poll: I suppose that one would have to imagine a...

    They are separate. Wealth inequality has been around for ages, just look at the industrial revolution when adorable white children were working coal mines. At that time racism against whites (amongst...
  13. Poll: To the extent that those on the right try to...

    To the extent that those on the right try to educate themselves on what real Critical Race Theory is, they get that it is about pointing out institutional oppression. Whether or not racist...
  14. Poll: Gospel's question makes it clear why this law is...

    Then why the ban on handing out water while NOT in the role of somebody who is there to influence your vote?[/QUOTE]

    Gospel's question makes it clear why this law is considered a voter suppression...
  15. Poll: Metaphor, it is quite possible that you do not...

    I don't particularly see a problem with letting Americans know they have the right to request government information. Do you?[/QUOTE]

    That's a disingenuous strawman.[/QUOTE]

    Metaphor, it is...
  16. Poll: I was feeling charitable.

    I didn't even make an argument.[/QUOTE]

    I was feeling charitable.
  17. Poll: I am pleased to see that a few people have...

    I am pleased to see that a few people have actually voted in the survey, but I hope they take the question literally. It is not whether one thinks that SCOTUS ought to side with the DoJ but whether...
  18. Poll: Your argument is utterly absurd. If the concern...

    So it's ok for the local election supervisor to electioneer. I mean if the act of handing out water is electioneering then it should be illegal across the board.[/QUOTE]

    Not the act of handing out...
  19. Poll: I probably should not have tried to put a poll...

    I probably should not have tried to put a poll question at the top of this thread, but there is no way to edit it out. Literally nobody but me has bothered with it, so no harm done.
  20. Poll: Justice Department sues Georgia for voting laws that target black voters

    See In Suing Georgia, Justice Department Says State's New Voting Law Targets Black Voters. Assuming that this case reaches the Supreme Court, do you believe that the conservative majority will side...
  21. Poll: I agree with you on that point, and I also agree...

    I don't disagree. However, there is a very large issue here. When does the average republican (or people to the right) understand nuance? They have an incredible difficult time understanding the...
  22. Poll: Harry's point is that mortgages depend more on...

    Harry's point is that mortgages depend more on "objective criteria" such as credit scores than race, but I do think Politesse is right about how CRT works. The point is that one's general credit...
  23. Poll: There is no mention in your video of Critical...

    What's untruthful is pretending that this isn't being pushed in schools.

    DeSantis implied that this bill could be used to punish universities that were judged not to live up to his or the legislature's standards of academic fairness, but it is likely just going to be an...
  25. Poll: Critical Race Theory is a classic example of a...

    Critical Race Theory is a classic example of a shibboleth--an expression that identifies the group that the speaker belongs to. This one is a far right shibboleth that seems to have been resurrected...
