Texas should bring Oklahoma with it. Then it should join OPEC.

A couple of Patriot systems isn't going to do much. The US only sent two Patriot systems so far? Why bother sending them if you are only going to send only two. The background behind this is that the Patriot system is cost prohibitive. It is impossible to rush these systems to Ukraine, as it would take years of accumulation.

I don't think the CCP cares much at all about Israel. Israel is not important to the CCP.

DeSantis marketed Florida with his own brand. Some things are outlandish, like the banning of fake meat. People do move to a state for the politics they agree with. People vote with their feet. CEOs change corporate headquarters because of politics. Talking with people who came from Hawaii, they decided to leave after the pandemic because of Draconian lockdowns. It seems the lockdowns really triggered the visible divisions on what is considered responsible government. You pay the expenses of living in the city, then you deal with authoritarian government that shutdown basically all your freedoms. That was the last straw for many. Florida did not do that and people saw that. The taxes are lower and the laws, for the most part, seem sensible. Disney threatened the marketing of the DeSantis brand and for that, it was taken to the woodshed. Ron does things to prove he is a conservative leader. No fence-sitting from him.

There is no scientific consensus that gender-affirming care fixes the mental problems of transgenders. Psychological problems are complex. You cannot determine the cause of dysphoria accurately all the time. What people think will make them happy, does not make them happy, and what makes them sad isn't always clear, because the right questions are not asked, or the answers are abstained. It is also clear that this type of dysphoria extends beyond perception of themselves, but what they expect from other people perceiving them. This doesn't appear much different than a weird or different looking person being ostracized. Teens have suicidal ideation that have nothing to do with gender identity. Yet, how do we treat those versus transgender youths?

The title is a bit misleading. This study isn’t evidence that gender affirmative care causes suicide.

How is the title misleading? The title does not conclude anything.

"Pride" is treated as a brand by companies that look to cash in.

This is true liberalism. To be multicultural, you have to accept the differences in culture. What neoliberal expansionist say, however, is that liberalism is the culture of humankind.

Argentina has had chronic inflation problems because it is the culture of Argentina. The locals don't like capitalism and believe democracy will fix all their problems. As far as I know, the vote wasn't for capitalism or economic freedom, but to fix the inflation problem. The only way for a South American country like Argentina or Chile to have a long-term free market oriented economy is by authoritarian control. Milei is a protest vote. The common Argentine wants something to be fixed by the government without any energy expended from themselves. They also don't follow rules. They have provinces that ignore and protest, and revolt against central government policy. Another thing that tells the extent of which Argentinians loved government security, that even Milei's reforms don't target all the spending with cuts, but with devaluation; the "blender" in his economic plan, not because he does not want to. I don't see this going very far.
