WTI Crude (September contract) is currently trading at under $90 a barrel ($87.85 as of this post). Gas is trading at $2.92, which is the lowest since the end of Feb. Both have been steadily trending down since June.

Thanks Obama.

Re: Reliability of Witness Testimony

It’s not just eyewitness identification that is unreliable. It’s eyewitness testimony in general. Res Ipsa , I can imagine a number of ways in which memory or assessment of witnesses could be misleadingly inaccurate. I was wondering about how much limitation a defense attorney must work with regard...

Re: Faithful TBM to doubter in 6 hours on ex-Mormon Reddit

What it sounds like your argument boils down to is a claim that I have a moral duty to do something impossible. I even have a vague memory of saying something to that effect, fairly explicitly. I'm going to backpedal and concede right now that nobody has a moral duty or obligation to do something i...

Re: Mar-A-Lago Legally Searched by FBI

Not that folks could be blamed for wondering, after Don Jr, Jared and Manafort literally met with a handful of Russians in a hotel room, with the admitted intention of ‘getting dirt on Clinton’. Wondering is fine. Wiretapping the Trump campaign and knowingly using false documents like the dossier t...

Re: All atheists should be nihilists

I’m not sure I’ve met an atheist who was an actual nihilist. But I’ve learned to be skeptical towards theists who tell me what I must believe. 😂

Re: How long/intensely did you believe in the historicity of the Book of Mormon?

I believed absolutely until I parted company with the church at age 19.

Re: Polio...

I doubt it's political, either. in 2019 there was a severe measles outbreak, mostly in just 3 communities in the same county where the polio case is. If I recall correctly, more measles cases were recorded in these three towns than in the entire US the year before. Here's a pretty good summary: Cha...

Re: Mar-A-Lago Raided

By this reasoning, could Trump serve as president from a federal penitentiary? Trump can always be impeached and then convicted for these crimes. Separation of powers means that this is the mechanism to get him out should he be elected again, if he were to have been convicted of these crimes at the...

Re: Polio...

We’re specifically talking upstate NY. But the color of the state isn’t the important part. Antivaxxers trended blue until the merger with MAGA. Upstate NY tends more red, but I think it depends on the location. I haven’t seen polio vaccination really singled out, but they attack the whole childhoo...

Re: Mar-A-Lago Legally Searched by FBI

This is the first time I have heard any consideration of such an extreme possibility. (I guess Trump's action is supposed to be ok if it does not start nuclear war.) Perhaps if I watched more fox I would have heard this extreme diversion of attention. Obama still hasn't digitized as he promised the...
