Permit denied because large gatherings are not yet allowed.

Just like last year.

They can go virtual again, and likely be back next year.
Did you read the article?

What should happen to them if they bike in anyway?

IN the world, but not OF the world
The IMF estimates that the world subsidizes fossil fuels at a clip of $5.2 trillion a year.

"Fossil fuel companies receive a significant quantity of what we might think of as conventional subsidies — government funding to reduce the retail price of fuel. The IMF describes these as “pre-tax” subsidies, and they amount to roughly $500 billion a year.

Countries like Malaysia, Nigeria, and Saudi Arabia are facing pressure to cut their subsidies for heating and transportation fuel (for budget reasons), but overall, these subsidies are on the rise again around the world.

But the vast majority of the IMF’s subsidy tally comes from failing to price greenhouse gas emissions, a.k.a. “post-tax subsidies.” In essence, the world’s carbon polluters are dumping their waste into the atmosphere for free. About 87 percent of greenhouse gas emissions don’t face any kind of carbon price at all.

Getting to do something for free that adds a cost to society does confer an advantage, but it’s debatable whether that should be called a subsidy."

Thanks for the link, but that is semantics, not subsidies.

From a friend.


‘The common factor in both the U.S. and Canadian governments’ schemes to “build back better” is the erosion of individual freedom. That is why such schemes cannot make our societies and economies better. They will make us only poorer—because lack of freedom drives economic poverty.’

Ugh!!


Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., supports pushing President Joe Biden's $2.3 trillion infrastructure bill through by using the budget reconciliation process – only Democrat votes in the Senate – if that is what it takes.

"We now have a new president, and we have passed a historic rescue package," Warren told "CBS This Morning." "So often in Washington, the doors to change are just locked tight. But right now, they're open, they're open just a crack, but people across this country want to see us make a change."

The point is what, then? Just wanna bitch about Democrats? 🤷‍♂️
The point is to make people aware of this typical Dem racism.

The point is if that were a "small time" Republican the left and media would have made this into a major deal but since it's a small time Democrat, we should ignore it. Racism is racism and the Democrats are guilty of it in spades.

Yup. Mercedes driving DEM/Racists are fairly common these days.

This video is infuriating. Does anyone think she sounded tipsy?

By what right does any politician or political group have to confiscate wealth of any sort.
