I had to google Alex Jones. Why would you even know about this guy?

He is just some goober to me.
Quotes are nice, so I don't have to scour the thread to find out what the hell you're talking about.

I sized him up fairly accurately the first time I heard him.
There's a first time for everything.

I am not a contrarian. It's just that you're wrong a lot.

Quotidian means daily. I don't know how that applies.

No wonder you have so many posts here at EvC.
I do try to reply to every post that replies to me. It would be nice if some other people did that.

The old codger will get blamed for the next great economic recession/depression, which will hit within a year.
Some people are predicting a MILD recession within a year.
And you have the GALL to call yourself a moderate when you call Biden an "old codger" and you call Kamala Harris and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez "harpies"?

Don't I have a right to an opinion?
The economy is not governed by opinions.
Phat writes:
The peanut gallery around here is in lockstep politically...
Nonsense. You'll find a broader range of political opinions on the left than on the right.
Phat writes:
... and wouldn't dare denigrate their prodigies in any way of course.
Calling people "old codgers" and "harpies" is not just denigrating them. It's a personal attack that has nothing to do with their political positions. It's based on hate. You're demonstrating that it's YOU who is in lockstep with Trump and his cronies.

I think that America needs to step back and fix itself before it attempts geopolitical alliances...
I think America needs geopolitical alliances so it can see how civilized nations behave in the twenty-first century.
Phat writes:
We made a big mistake when we took our priorities away from oil and gas.
You and Trump think so. The rest of the world thinks we need to get rid of oil and gas faster, not slower. Short-term pain for long-term survival.
Phat writes:
It is too soon to make the switch.
It may be too late.
Phat writes:
There is no way that 90% of our population could even afford an electric car. How are people supposed to get to work in the meantime?
You should have been lobbying for electric buses a generation ago.

And draining the strategic petroleum reserve is not a solution.
Turning off the tap is the solution.
