  1. In this thread we share our worst experiences with far left people. Besides annoying people on this forum, there are far worse out there. Some of them are chill, more than often, but some of them are incredibly crazy. Recently I defended the market with my economics degree to some leftist and he accused me of practicing eugenics and blocked me on facebook. I have more personal stories but I think sharing them would get me doxed. And in middle school I was especially a right wing troll. The teachers put me in detention just for being conservative.
  2. Fox news has been pretty bad, thats where hydrocloroquine came from. But the WSJ is really good, I'd say its top notch. Some people prefer the FT, but I don't really. I like the WSJ.
  3. Who did the best and worst on coverage during the Pandemic? My vote goes to Worst: Bloomberg News Best: Wall Street Journal The difference between Bloomberg News and the WSJ's editorials on the virus is night and day. One offered the most horrific and fear inducing coverage and one offered reluctant and careful fact checking. Bloomberg seemed to post anything and everything relevant and horrifying to scare people about the virus... and to sell ads. The WSJ had opinions and editorials that reflected that while the virus was bad, it wasn't as harmful as we thought it was during the initial spread. The WSJ focused more on the economy (what they actually know about) and bloomberg made debunked speculations that the virus reinfected people and that the virus was changing in ways that made it more deadly. An example of a bloomberg article: "What we don't know about the coronavirus may kill us" https://www.bloombergquint.com/business/where-did-the-virus-come-from-scientists-race-to-find-origin An example of a WSJ opinion piece: "Is the Coronavirus as Deadly as They Say?" https://www.wsj.com/articles/is-the-coronavirus-as-deadly-as-they-say-11585088464 it feels like whenever bloomberg released a faulty assumption about the coronavirus, the WSJ was there to pick up the misinformation. What does the forum think?
  4. I have no idea why Trump attacks him so much. He was the first sitting senator to endorse trump. like WTF.
  5. Is there anything not about race? Part of me wonders if the race brainwashing is a good thing... but it makes us so blind to reality.
  6. Pretty good article I found defending standardized testing. https://www.jamesgmartin.center/2018/10/the-evidence-for-standardized-tests-already-exists/
  7. To tell you the truth, I'm probably what they call an "academic racist..." but I don't post hate speech or talk about dying black people and make fun of them like some people on this site do. That's just rude.
  8. liking gay and gay things is pretty normal. 80% of people support LGBT in America. In university there is an issue of adverse selection, where more lefty people want to be university staff than right wing people. It's also the case that universities are in left wing cities....

  10. https://www.wsj.com/articles/university-of-california-will-stop-using-sat-act-11590099469 Sad The SAT gives people an opportunity for people who dislike public school but are forced to go anyway. Ever have bad grades in high school but a good ACT or SAT test? That allows you to get a education at a good school. Testing is a better indicator of success than high school grades. But we are removing proven, effective tools for schools to find promising students because minorities score poorly on those tests. We are a decaying society.
  11. Jerry is just a weirdo, but I don't mind his presence in the forum. Its fun to dunk on him.
