    "If we was ready for the green agenda, I'd raise my hand right now. But we're not ready right now. So don't let them fool you like this is a new agenda. This is not a new agenda," Walker said at a campaign stop in Peachtree City. "We're not prepared. We're not ready right now. What we need to do is keep having those gas-guzzling cars, 'cause we got the good emissions under those cars. We're doing the best thing that we can."

    He is being dishonest. What Biden is trying to do, as I see it, is to build the infrastructure that will make electric cars more viable. That's the necessary step to being prepared. He seems to be using the lack of that infrastructure as a reason not to invest in it.

    Walker's suffered many concussions. Graham thinks that's a good thing. I disagree.

    They ran Herschel because he is a black man with name recognition that will vote the way they tell them.

    Define "ready". The day is coming. It's a matter of preparing for it, or letting it hit us in the face.

    Disagree - what do we know about Trump's narcissism ?? Fetterman's stroke ?? Biden's stuttering ??

    To my way of thinking, Walker is a more sympathetic figure because he clearly seems injured.

    Maybe it has nothing to do with concussions. Maybe he's just a dim bulb.

    It is best to comment on what we do know.
    I didn't bring up the concussions; Lindsay Graham did. Graham seems to think multiple concussions qualify one to be a senator.

    looks like you are the one doing that.

    it's possible to speak critically of an individual without employing a demeaning stereotype.

    is the race of herschel walker convenient electorally to georgia republicans?

    Ready as in willing and able to make sacrifices for no direct personal benefit. The “day” is decades long with plenty of time to process new nformation and make changes. Those changes run counter to our psychology and the turbocharged growth that fossil fuels brought. A very simple example is the need to reduce gasoline consumptuon in transportation, a low hanging fruit. Doing that in the lowest cost way should come by planned increases in fuel prices to encourage less wastefull use. We’re 30 yrs since the last time the Fed fuel tax was adjusted for inflation and about 25 yrs since it should have been adjusted. But instead we effectively have subsidized fuel because more energy flow means more money flow. To deny ourselves the inheritance of fossil energy is like refusing any other found wealth, it aint happenin.

    you are the one using the demeaning stereotype, “boatbum”. twice now.

    just like donald, employing identity politics at your convenience, as a method of deflection from the very real dynamic. smear critics of walker and his candidacy with accusations of using a demeaning stereotype, which gives you the opportunity to gleefully employ the words yourself. nobody else is using that name. just you.

    is walker’s race convenient to republicans in a contest against another black man?

    is walker, the individual man, being used for his type?

    “look at my african american over here”.

    you voted for that guy. you share brain space with him. what’s it like?

    I used to think being able to speak in proper English, and put together proper sentences, was a requirement for higher office. Then Trump got elected.

    If Walker loses the runoff, how fast do you think he'll move back to Texas? A state where he claimed a "homestead" property tax exemption on his house for the past ten years before moving back to Georgia to run for Senate.

    Chappelle caught a lot of heat for his jokes on Saturday. The anti-defamation league went after him, too. I didn't catch anything especially offensive, but I was only half listening.
