    If you don't notice the difference in the approach to impeachment with this episode and the one with Trump, then you aren't paying much attention. Not to mention this isn't necessarily a GOP thing, but spearheaded by the Freedom Caucus crew who will, undoubtedly, pursue a Benghazi-like parade of hearings if guys like Jim Jordan are given the reins. It does remain to be seen if McCarthy has the votes to become Speaker as it is, so we'll have to find out which faction of the GOP is able to hold sway to know the real direction of the GOP.

    China being a cluster [uck fay] and in collapse and the FED isn’t easing on tightening and raising rates is the biggest reason

    Never, I guess. Gas was cheaper when oil was more expensive.

    if it was that easy to manipulate and make big margins for refiners i doubt all of the major oil companies would have spun off their refining operations.

    WTF is the point of a strike if Congress can use brute force to nix it? I hope the rail workers tell them to fu€k the hell off.

    Quiet quitting, sabotage, whatever you call it they need to do it. Don’t put up with it.

    Quit being [ussies pay].

    It was insane. Four legit neo nazis with Jones trying to be the voice of reason. Unbelievable.

    This is why I never have understood the concept of deplatforming people. People with abhorrent views should always be allowed to display their idiocy to the masses. Shining light on the nuttiest of nutty ideas only enhances the overall MarketPlace of Ideas.

    If anything decreeing individuals are "too dangerous" to be allowed to share their views on traditional/modern mainstream media platforms only emboldens their agenda. America use to have zero fear of "platforming" the most controversial and extreme thought influencers amongst us. Powerful platforms like the Phil Donahue Show (probably the biggest national daytime TV talkshow of its era) would never hesitate to allow characters such as Ferrakan, Duke, Black Hebrew leaders, neo-Nazis, ect. to explain their stupid points of view as a way to educate the masses why some people hold disgusting, controversial viewpoints.

    Also I know Trump has shattered the once conventional idea that only Governors, Senators, and Generals can run for High Office. But the idea that Kanye could ever actually be a serious threat for the Presidency like some believe has never made any damn sense to me. Say what you want about Trump, but at least Trump could somewhat talk shop when it came to politics. Whereas I've never heard Kanye make an actual coherent political argument. There's just no way he could garner any real grassroot supporters.

    Kanye was on Alex Jones show today and basically defended Hitler, nazis, etc. And Jones was offering him every lifeline to stop and he kept doubling down.
