Sweet. They’ll be selling you your energy shortly.

Exactly.  Another positive.  The poor indigenous folk might start profiting from their interior scrubland.  Though it won't surprise me if they get bypassed and don't.

More likely the energy bill will arrive in Chinese.

It's very complicated...Black and White [including the rest].

Maybe the lovely Carol and Fabiola should go read "Hispanic Leaders Speak Out" in Google and read all that...might give them a clue.

These gems but 4;

“Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die … Through love of having children, we are going to take over."

“They’re afraid we’re going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They’re right. We will take them over … We are here to stay.”

“The American southwest seems to be slowly returning to the jurisdiction of Mexico without firing a single shot.”

“California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn’t like it should leave.”

Over in the Biden Administration, I drew a line:
Quote
1. Do not talk about people's real lives without their explicit permission in a disparaging fashion. There are two arbiters of that - the person whose life is being discussed and me.

2. Do not expose, seek to expose, or pretend to expose any member's real life facts. There are only two arbiters of that - the person whose life is under discussion and me.

3. Do not threaten another person, on the site or off. Do not propose that a US politician should die or, if you are from another country, a politician of your own country. I am the sole arbiter of that.

In the event that one of those things happens, I will indicate that it needs to stop. If it does not stop, I will given the offender a timeout of one sort or another for 5 days.

A repeat offense after the 5 day timeout will get a longer ban.

Seeking to get around that ban, going forward, will bring a report to the ISP of the offender.

In your opinions, are those too loose, too stringent, too something else? What changes would you make in them, if it were your call?

It implicitly allows the ongoing lies and insults that seem a staple of the political spaces and sometimes the sports spaces. It doesn't seek to control language - swears will continue to appear with great regularity.

Are those both okay?

Why is the GOP censuring Cindy McCain, Jeff Flake, and Doug Ducey?  I thought they were against cancel culture?

When they do it, it's not cancel culture. It's protecting their purity.
