I just realized that it's been 18 years since the invasion of Afghanistan. This means that for the fresh, bright-eyed recruits we've always been at war with Eastasia.

Re: Dancing With the Dems

Without real accountability, platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are ignoring the negative impact of their services on our children. As the father of two young boys, I worry about what this will mean for the generations growing up with these technologies. Our kids have access from infan...

I'm not seeing "possessed of considerable talents" either.
I think "managed to become a TV show host and President despite being devoid of any other apparent talents" has to count for something.
Going broke running a casino also has to be a sort of talent.

Wasn't Truman a haberdasher before becoming a senator and then FDR's VP?

That house wouldn't be at all unusual in the San Gabriel Valley. It wouldn't be unusual anywhere. One of the features of McMansions is thier genericness.

The general rule I'm proposing is that when people responding to emergencies on behalf of a government entity are hurt or sickened as a result of those responses, then that entity should pay for the cost of care. This is the same principle that underlies the VA. To DAR's point, I would suggest that ...

Hard for me to understand how that law would stand up to a 1st Amendment challenge. I mean, taken at face value, it looks like it criminalizes saying "christians r dum lol".
Well, no. Christians are oppressors, not oppressed. So laws like this will never be applied to them.
