Apparently you fell for the propaganda. That number is most likely for private electricity consumption only. But electricity and private electricity in particular is a small portion of Germany's total energy consumption.

You thought Germany is run 50 % by renewables? Laughing It's 1.5 % from photovoltaics and about 5 % by wind. Laughing

Oh shit you're actually right, I spaced on the whole thing and really was looking at private households, am in a rabbit hole for solar panels atm, I apologize!


Not your fault, the propaganda in media and politics makes it look like we're close to autarky if we just build a few more solar panels and windmills. 90 % of Germany wouldn't be able to estimate the true numers, i. e. 85 % of the total energy consumption comes from fossil and nuclear sources, 15 % is renewables, yet half of those 15 % is actually "bio masses" aka burning wood. lol

Precisely. That's like us in the US saying Connecticut is the best run state in the Union. Not even close.

We're going to be in a recession, too, but next year. Material prices went down but companies aren't buying because they expect lower demand in near future so they produce less. Hard times are ahead of us Very Happy

Who on the Left is saying we're not in a recession? Multiple signs point to it with the most prominent sign being the falling gas prices.

Kansas voted 2:1 to reject abortion, a notable showing for a red state. This needs to be the issue that dems build their midterms around.

Notable indeed considering Trump won Kansas by 15 points a couple years ago. If this can happen is a clearly red state, this can happen anywhere.

Dems tend to fumble the bag when it comes to victories like this though so my expectations aren't high on what they will do with this.

Just another day in the US when your former president is being investigated for the espionage act

In a situation where you have to assume that he ends up being charged because there is absolutely no way the FBI could be this goddamn careless to go through all of this and then fuck it up

Now the brutal reality of abortion bans are beginning to dawn on some Republicans:



And yet this waste of space still has done nothing to even try to roll back the damage that has been caused by his vote.

So is he trying to repeal it or... ?

Fact is a lot of these people passed these bills in cynical plays that assumed they would never stand because of Roe v Wade. And now they do. Conservatives love to complain about virtue signaling but that's exactly what they did.

I haven't been able to find anything in local news in South Carolina that indicates he's working to repeal this legislation. I hope that's happening in the background, but its South Carolina so I don't have much hope.

I also follow this guy on Twitter. I like him. And he's correct here.

Last night was proof of the fact that the economy is not nearly as bad as pundits in the media want you to think or would like to yell about. That's not to say it wasn't an important issue: it was, and a lot of people voted on it.

But in a truly bad economy there is no fucking way Dems would have done as well as they did last night.

Also, pollsters did well with a slight anti-Democrat bias, just to remind us polling errors can work both ways and that the idea that polls are always wrong in places like WI, PA, MI because they can't reach the mythical secret trump voter is bullshit.

Ron Johnson being reelected is a travesty but Evers being reelected is...amazing. I would have died if I had to suffer a fucking trifecta in Wisconsin. Absolutely massive supreme court election in WI next spring. We are getting closer to bringing back our democracy. Thank you Tony and in a way I guess thank you incumbency advantage

She's only 63 votes behind now, lol.
Still counting though.

In general though, my making fun of America might come, not to an end, but maybe to a middle - basically all the "big steal"/"big lie" candidates underperformed. Republicans still taking the house, but this a rather decent election for American democracy.
Even Trump candidates like Oz properly conceded their races.
