Why is it so hard to find information on CHAZ?  The media doesn't really cover much of it

This is from a right wing site but helps add perspective (NYT and WP are pretty left wing these days, regardless of what they like to claim):

I was pretty hardcore liberal for a long time...not anymore.

Yea "pretty liberal" has also changed quite a bit. You used to be liberal if you thought paying a little bit more in taxes and providing some welfare programs was acceptable. Now? It involves paying people for something they had no involvement in(reparations), wiping out everyones debts, eliminating police and border patrol/immigration, and basically whatever else CNN feeds you. Which in and of itself is quite amusing and batshit crazy sometimes. Like how on one hand they run adds about an apple not being a banana or whatever, but then tell you with a straight face that a woman can actually be a man..... bizarre times. As long as these whackadoos stay in the liberal cities I dont really care.

Why not just count your blessings where you find them? This is not a bad thing.

The only thing I see from "the most trusted name in news" CNN's homepage is reporting about Fox's reporting of it.

Yes, I'm sure the news that Jaws is 45 is more noteworthy but...yeah, no it's not.

Found this on a google search:

Peaceful, meditation society. That place is like utopia!

but then tell you with a straight face that a woman can actually be a man.....

“it is impossible to discriminate against a person for being homosexual or transgender without discriminating against that individual based on sex.”

“If the employer retains an otherwise identical employee who was identified as female at birth, the employer intentionally penalizes a person identified as male at birth for traits or actions that it tolerates in an employee identified as female at birth. Again, the individual employee’s sex plays an unmistakable and impermissible role in the discharge decision.”

- Justice Gorsuch, today.

(and Trump nominated him, so don't blame the Liberals)

It's so hard to be conservative nowadays. Just when you think you have your guy in the White House, he sends out $1200 checks to everyone in the country. With his name on them. And even boasts of it.

And that conservative Supreme Court... Eric covered that already...

Tough shit.

This deals with discrimination, not biology.
