Re: Gentry from the block

Biz-gentrification: A West Loop alderman who often presses developers to set aside more units for low- and moderate-income residents than they are required by city ordinance now wants a developer to set aside affordable commercial space as well.

Fuck that noise. Lets get high and have sex. Yeah, I never get why people are sad about not having some higher purpose. Bacon, rubbing one out, and reruns of good sitcoms are more than sufficient to qualify as a good life for me. I like those things too but the feeiling I get when overcoming obstac...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

That is a good quote to illustrate my overall experience of the guy in relation to my worldview. See, to me, the idea of "having a point" isn't a great question. I don't know that anything has ever had a point in the way people seem to throw that phrase around, but I think that's an indictment of t...

Re: Orange is the new President

Nearly half of Republicans (47 percent) believe that Trump won the popular vote, which is similar to this finding. Larger fractions believe that millions of illegal immigrants voted (68 percent) and that voter fraud happens somewhat or very often (73 percent). Again, this is similar to previous pol...

I would use vestibule (or airlock) if it’s enclosed and one door goes outside. For me foyers have to be open. Our building has a vestibule but our apartment has a foyer.

It's all good, guys, Trump misspoke yesterday. He meant to say there was no reason it would NOT have been Russia! (But also, it may have been someone else, because there are a lot of people out there.)

It seems like I've seen a lot of pearl-clutching from Trump haters, though. Unless I'm just noticing that more because it's on the brain, when really it's just one in an endless series of their pearl clutches for the week. I think it's because actually experiencing things like that press conference...

Just pathetic excuse-making for Trump this morning. Even though he says he agrees that the Russians did try to meddle! But they were just revealing “uncomfortable truths” about Hillary, so they’re really the heroes of this story, and we meddle in elections all the time so it’s not really a big deal,...

So he's moved on from complaining other NATO members don't spend 2% of GDP on defense to advocating an increase in the target to 4% of GDP. Great.
