If it's not perfect we should do nothing you're right. /S

You want to address big problems? We need more Democrats in control of the Congress and executive branch. Republicans will always push us back untill their platform changes.

It's actually quite crazy to see the amount of change Biden could get done even with out control of the legislative branch. Adding to that, the Republicans are in disarray too yet things still got done.

I'm surprised OP didn't include the largest climate legislation in world history

I want to see another country or region beat us, as this would be welcome competition.

It's the infrastructure bill, not the climate change bill. Which, btw, Biden passed the largest climate change bill in world history but you just keep trying to convince people that Biden bad.

Yeah it did help some people? It still continues to help a bunch of people and was change so impactful that now, Even republican voters don't want it repealed.

Half measures is the only thing Democrats can pass with the limited power that they have. That didn't even have a full 2 years in control of the executive and legislative branch when the ACA was passed, with some Democrats being very conservative. the only way to get the law passed was by getting all members to agree, including the most conservative Members. The public option in particular was one of the things removed from the ACA because of conservative dissent.

What happened to the public option that candidate Biden talked about so much?

Pray tell, how would Biden get that passed with the current political setting?

Biden is a president, not a king, he can't just deschedule marijuana unilaterally without causing problems, he needs Congress to help. Look at your answer to my first question to see how that gets done. Some info: https://www.hrw.org/news/2023/04/20/over-80-groups-urge-biden-administration-end-federal-prohibition-marijuana-and

Our infrastructure is 10-15 years behind China and falling further behind.

Again, look at your answer to my first question.

It feels like you want Biden to fix everything, while completely unaware of how our government works. Which brings us to why people compare Trump to Biden, because people will have to vote for one or the other in the election. Is you want better and more extensive changes, vote for the Democrats that can only take baby steps at the moment. When they get more control on Congress, they can make bigger steps.

I'm not very familiar with how public companies work, but I'm surprised that a shareholder with only 3% of ownership can make such demands and can excel such control. I understand they're the largest shareholder, but I could imagine a large portion of the remaining 97% would pay for now following the Paris accords since it may main less money for all investors on the future.

Is dragon age playable on the steam deck or Linux in general? Feels like an out of place mention, or lacking clarification.

I feel it's been common knowledge since after the first month of the war that Russia has miscalculated significantly. They sent in paratroopers, some of the most time consuming and most expensive soldiers to train, into Kyiv where they were summarily killed or captured with no support. Other units ran out of ammo and fuel, with soldiers indicating they weren't expecting to invade.

Every day this war lasts is a spit in the face to Putin and his shitty planning.

Is this a good comparison? Feels like we're missing all of the US administration, insurance is just a part of it.

This may be one of the better options if epoxy or something else doesn't work. I think a larger hardware store would have these.

Its the next major step in the process of getting it rescheduled. Each step could potentially end that process, so each movement forward is great news.

Is there another way in shorter turns or the same amount?

I’m glad this was passed. Only worry I have is that the the corporations will have the money to take a hit in California. Keep the amount of money they siphon from CA high, translating to higher costs to the CA businesses and, despite the fact that more of their businesses will struggle, use that as evidence that this law should be repealed.

I'm doing interviews, and I wanted to get an idea of what other people are doing. Say a position offers a pay range between 50-65k. In my interview with HR (first interview), should I try to provide a more narrow range? for instance, " Based on my skills and experience, I'd expect a range between 56-60k" Or should I just tell them the range offered is good for me and let them actually provide an offer? This is of course assumes the entire range is acceptable to me. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Article is very interesting and talks about the mix of goals in regards to the protests, and how speech negatively and positively helps accomplish those goals.

A bigger “tax break” (in the form of allowing these businesses to actually deduct expenses like other legitimate businesses) for these dispensaries should mean cheaper products, less struggling businesses and also less black market marijuana.

I feel like hidden rooms aren't very transparently shown in the game. Currently there are usually 2-3 hidden rooms in each area, with an additional hidden room for every floor that has "many secrets". This is all totally fine, except that its sort of hard to identify them, even as someone that's rather familiar with what they are. By identify, I don't mean to search for them, but to actually identify whether a room is a hidden room or not.

My suggestion would be that all hidden rooms share some kind of identifier. some suggestions would be:

  • uniquely colored door that, even if burned, has a different color so you'll always know that was an entrance to a hidden room

  • Uniquely colored flooring

  • Uniquely colored walls

  • Indications in the logs when you step into an area or floor ("you have found 1 of 2 or 3 hidden rooms in this area" "There is one discovered hidden room on this floor")

Hidden rooms can affect your rankings score so allows for easier ways to track that would be welcomed.

What are your opinions?
