Re: America's Exit May Have Improved the TPP

Don't we already have a thread for stupid shit said on H&R, when anyone bothers to look? This is for substantive discussion of articles and stuff at Reason. Right. I took Aresen's post to be about the stupid response there. A little bit guilty as charged. I did object to the stupid response, but I ...

Re: Bill Clinton, #MeToo, Feminism, and 1998

Now, Dems appear to be willing to throw Bill under the bus. No, there's a huge difference between people anonymously acknowledging, "Yeah, he probably did it." in a poll (or even a few writers giving excuse-laden condemnations) and throwing him under any kind of bus. Ot even something as minor and ...

Re: I bless the rains

You guys know that Africa is generally doing pretty good right now, right? You've actually paid attention to reputable foreign news coverage about the region, correct? Explain "pretty good."
