    I never felt like Cap'n crossed a line.
    Then again, there is no official line
    Everyone has their own personal line

    I can respect Capn as my elder. He has been around, owned a small business (I hear), and raised kids. I do take that life experience into consideration when trying to figure out where someone is coming from.

    But I just could never seem to agree with anything he said and got sick of the blanket "faux news" insult. Sometimes people can disagree without the other person being an "idiot" or a "fool".

    I don't understand the Sauce thing at all. Is he a Dodger fan?

    You and I both know that is effectively a ban. Cap has dignity. He will not reregister and profess that he is reformed in order to be accepted back. If he is only welcome if he comes back neutered, then he is as good as gone.

    I don’t recall reading a post where I felt Cap blatantly crossed a line. I mean, as a daily reader of DSP for over 10 years, I have been conditioned to believe there is no such thing as “crossing the line.” And that’s what makes DSP so special. You are allowed an outlet to speak your mind without any repercussion. If that is no longer the case, then what made this site special no longer applies.
    Yes.

    Yeah, we are a mess.

    Still, they will never pull that ballot hoax off without a massive lawsuit that'll extend beyond the actual election date. If they do, by some chicanery and dubious election rigging, the blowback, even with rampant leftist support here, will make for a decade of legal hilarity worthy of Laurel & Hardy. The Twitter mob thinks they know what's up. They do not. California will obviously vote Dem, but the GOP will get enough ballots in to help the national count.

    I look forward to this goat rodeo of an election. We are likely moving to Denver, San Antonio, or maybe even Spokane, but that's a year plus away. Until then, I'm ready for war.

    Both of my siblings moved to San Antonio. Don't go. It's becoming California-lite.

    I'll probably be here for a while. Almost moved a couple times in the past for career opportunities but I decided to go down a different path. One of those jobs was a 3 year contract that would be ending this year. Sometimes I wish I went ahead and gave it a shot just to experience something else. Get a taste and see if I could permanently ditch this hell hole. I don't have any regrets, though.

    Saving up $200-300,000 for a down payment on a house isn't all that appealing, either.

    San Antonio offers a superb job for me. But yes, its SoCal Light for sure.

    I lived in Denver for seven years, so I know the life. My wife is a native Californian. It'll be tougher on her.

    Denver is great city, but it's California with snow.
    On the plus side, not every beer at every brewery is an IPA.

    Colorado Springs is nice too

    And Colorado has a similar problem to Illinois:. About half the states population is in the Denver metro area, so they control the politics of the state.

    They do shitty things like pass water consumption taxes that screw rural farmers, then exempt themselves from the tax.

    Don't remind me. In 2003, Denver residents were charged extra for water because of a drought, then put on strict water restrictions to save water. People took it to heart, and used 31% less water over a year, and then the rains came, making it a win-win, right? Wrong. Rates went up again because the district lost money on account of budgetary shortfalls due in part to - you guessed it - people using less water.

    Yep. What country ...

    We wouldn't move to Denver. We are priced out there. We are looking at Centennial or Parker. That's more to our interests anyway. Denver city went ghetto since I moved...

    I know ... rkacist!

    We have an office in Centennial. It's a nice area. Very suburban, if that's your thing.

    It's not bad, although, as you say it's suburbia (aka white bread honkyville).

    I recall it 20 years ago before it was a formally recognized city. It had a feel like you could stretch out a bit ... and then the state consolidated in 2001, and the stampede began. I had my eye on a place there back in 2003, and now, it'd be almost triple what I paid for it. Oh well...

    CA has moved a little too close for comfort to being in non compliance with the Feds.
    Trump is getting smacked around with the whole Venezuela thing.
    That's all fake news.
    The reality is that Russia holds too much influence in south america and Trump wants to curb that.
    But he cant short of military action. Which is what his generals want.
    If Trump loses down south he may decide to take it out on CA.
    Southcom has been massing up which means that the next series of wars will be in our hemisphere and close to our continent.
    Brazilian president is moving towards stronger ties to Russia and China who are about to reinvigorate the old BRIC system with Iran.
    Things are coalescing together to create 2 strong world factions.

    1. The petrodollar and who controls it. Right now its the US that controls Saudi oil that backs our dollar which is the global standard for trade.
    Russia sells its oil cheaper and is therefore the competitor to the Saudis who have better more expensive oil but oil whose tap will eventually run out. Russia will never run out of its cheap shale so the Saudis are about to make a deal with them for their long term prospects. This is a big part of why we are in Venezuela.

    2. US Liberalism and how its viewed across the world. Folks in more socially conservative latin american countries and muslim or african countries see how the US has become a haven for things like the church of Satan, sexual depravity like sex changes for boys who had been raised as drag queens paraded in front of men at gay nightclubs, and old men who think they are little girls and boys being given the right by the courts to enter enclosed bathrooms with real little girls and boys and hang out.

    These two things plus a third thing that is hard to talk about are the 3 main reasons why there is a war brewing.
    Where each of us fall on those 3 things will determine what side you will be on in the war.
    To make it a little clearer.
    The war is coming to Venezuela.
    A small part of the military was induced into backing the guy who was worked up into declaring himself the new president of the state.
    That military group was given a map and told to meet up with the civilian militia and the foreign forces that were backing the new president. There they would receive new uniforms, food for their families and safe passage for them, and a few thousand dollars each as hero pay or something.
    They took the maps and headed to the jungle border with colombia.
    They waited and nobody showed up.
    The colombians were supposed to greet them as allies and help them but instead the colombian military looked down on them as deserters of weak faith.
    Nobody is helping them in colombia and the new venezuelan president and his people have forgotten them.
    They can't go back home as they are deserters at best but most likely viewed as traitors.
    No country promised them asylum and colombia does not want them there.
    Guaido is losing his support and most countries have backed off.
    The US will have to go in and take out Maduro.
    I don't think that will happen anymore now that Trump had to call Putin due to the little escalation between Pompeo and his equivalent in Moscow.
