Re: Calling 2024 for AOC

The Sandy thing, shouted as if it's revealing some dark secret, is maybe even more mystifying than the dancing thing.

She can spin up re-seeming outrage about the administration's worst policy. I can like her for that.

Re: Calling 2024 for AOC

She could lay waste to the economy if she means anything she says. Don't you normally bitch about hyperbole? I submit that she's not demonstrably worse than Trump by that strandard. Depends how seriously you take her spending desires on top of what we have now. Yes I agree if she gets nothing she w...

Re: I wanna see that!!!!

So they Ted Turnered a war. I'll pass They did substantially more than that. They added sound, remastered the images, and did frame correction to compensate for the different frame rates. It strips away the weird surreal feeling footage of that time normally has. Especially the sped up feeling it h...

I mean, Hell, Obama started out with a Blue-dominated Congress, and he didn't exactly transform a lot before the midterms.

Just in case you all were wondering if I'm really crazy.
It's a pleasing crazy.

If we have to have a jobs program, why not running around, picking up people walking through the desert, and giving them water, basic medical care, and a ride to civilization?

Or Californian cities, too.

Um, 3D printing is very different from chemical synthesis. After a discussion of 3D printed weapons elsewhere, it's become obvious to me that there are fucktons of people out there who believe, for whatever reasons of cluelessness, that these things are nigh-on Star Trek replicators, and that, Some...

We've been talking about Kondo on and off here since early 2016. There's even a Kondo thread. I know. That's why I assumed that when all my real-life friends started talking about this new thing last week, it wasn't Kondo. Because she's not new. Sorry, I was on the tablet or I would have directed t...

Weird. I'd suggest making sure Chrome is fully updated and restarting it. If it's still a problem and you use any extensions, try disabling all of them. If it works them, try re-enabling until you identify the extension that breaks it.

And I'm saying that institutional resistance might be (part of) the difference between somebody who comes across as a clueless racist uncle once in power, versus somebody who comes across as a fascist with a plan and the means to pull it off. Well, if you want to frame things as unfalsifiable claim...

It's weird, but all the "what fascists do next" stuff people have been breathlessly repeating to us since 2016 hasn't really been any more realistic than birthers going on about Obama intending to impose sharia law and whatever.
