Certainly not, I just feel claims of it being of specific intent require more evidence than general untrustworthiness.

At this point I am convinced corplinx is right about what happened in Florida, even if his line of reasoning was a bit defective.
Is that a superpower? :notsure:

As for gnome, he certainly didn't win me over by means I was consciously aware of. :o

A Cigarette for a Fake Signature? Election Fraud Charged on Los Angeles’ Skid Row
They are a familiar sight at farmers’ markets and public squares across California every election season: workers gathering signatures needed to place voter initiatives on the ballot.

Nine people have been charged with felony election fraud after they went to a different part of town to collect signatures: Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles district attorney announced on Tuesday that the nine had been charged with paying homeless people off — with one dollar bills and stray cigarettes — in exchange for signing fake names on petitions for the initiatives or on voter registration forms. (People who sign petitions are required to be registered voters.)

The petition gatherers were charged with a dozen felony counts after gathering hundreds of names in the 2016 and 2018 elections, prosecutors said. They face up to seven years in prison. The charges include circulating petitions with false names and registering a nonexistent person.
Well, we shall see what will happen...

That's the most communisty shit I've heard: "“Green New Deal” to fight climate change".
Depends on the details. Anyone remember when Republicans used to support fighting climate? Now it's just a partisan thing, like as if it only affects democrats, but it reality it will affect everyone. People who live in hot places near the equator more than others, but eventually everyone. I can envision more refugees, more "caravans" of desperate people trying to come north as those places become uninhabitable.

And yet the reality of the situation is that USA is meeting all its goals set under the likes of Paris Accords.

I don't know where this narrative started from, but I have not seen any evidence that current waves of refugees and "caravans" are driven by climate change. Political unrest and shitty governance in South America are not caused by climate change.

According to John Kerry, everything bad that is going on is in some way driven by climate change.
