Why is there so little traffic on this website. It looks exactly like reddit and it's dedicated to free speech, you'd think with all the bans at least some of the refugees would migrate. by yabbit in SaidIt

Consider the possibility that people do come here, look around, say "What a bunch of assholes!," and then leave.

Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon, D-Pa., was carjacked at gunpoint in a park in Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon. Note that she was driving an SUV. But she'll be happy to lecture everyone else about our carbon footprints. by Chipit in news

Per the article, the SUV was a "2017 Acura MDX."

According to fueleconomy.gov, that model has both "Hybrid" and non-Hybrid options available. At this point, both get more than 25 mpg highway, and about 20 city driving.

By way of comparison, if she worked in a job that didn't involve other people so much she might drive a Toyota Camry (the ultimate "mom car"). In which case her mileage (I assume she buys the V6) would be 30/21 mpg.

Since she works in DC and represents Philly, the only time she sees highway numbers are when she's commuting back and forth (which I assume she does - flying would make zero sense). She's on the Judiciary committee, so she may not have much to say about carbon footprints. On the other hand, there might be a quick federal law passed increasing the penalties for carjacking - those guys might have fucked with the wrong woman, unless they go for a quick plea bargain.

It continues to amaze me that in Florida, where you pretty much have to show an AARP card to buy a house, some disgruntled senior hasn't done a drive-by on DeSantis.

Nancy Pelosi just bought a 25m dollar beach front property, despite making only 170k a year and there being rising sea levels due to climate change. by Tarrock in politics

Nancy Pelosi is 81 years old. She's probably not too worried about rising sea levels and the long term effects of global warming...

They don't want the hassle of having to "negotiate" over this. Let the government require everyone to get the vax, and the deal is done. Not to mention that if union workers skip the vax and end up killing other union workers, payroll goes down...
