Re: Orange is the new President

I just don't really see how Trump wins against a hella mobilized voter base. He's basically pissed off everyone that isn't a Trumpkin. I think it will be closer than it should be but I think he loses. Uh huh. That certainly seems to be the case. At least until you fill in the blank. I think he lose...

Re: If We Build It, They'll Probably Still Come

Jesus was a refugee (after he was born, his family had to flee to Egypt to escape being killed by King Herod). They're trying to point out that Christians supporting current immigration policies are not only ignoring Jesus's teaching in Matthew 25 (whatever you do to the least of my people, you do ...

You may be on to something there. When Ed Meese was running around off the leash, we had the likes of James Baker and Casper Weinberger taking care of business.

Re: Orange is the new President

How electable do you guys think E Warren is? Even money against Trump at this point. I still think it more likely than not that Trump is actively trying to not be president. Would not be surprised if he torpedoed his own campaign. But honestly, where can he go from here that would make himself more...

Trans-Siberian Orchestra's "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo" stands the test of time, I think. I think by this point, it's getting up on the age of some of the other classics when I was a kid.
It works well with the Hallelujah Chorus if you put the intermission in between.

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

I will say that one thing that I’ve noticed as the big difference between this side of the pond and the other is that government in general is much more effective. Part of it is the fact that you don’t have a bunch of overlapping, independent layers with their own graft and inefficiency. You have, ...

I don't count myself as any of them. Odo was the most wanting of a wanting cast. Quark however, made up for at least three other lackluster characters.

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

Let’s have that discussion. The real comparison. Corporate tax rate is about 20% in Finland. VAT is 24%\14% on essentials. Progressive income top rate is 32% paid by lots of people. Median income total tax burden is about 45%. Try to sell it that way with all the goodies. See what happens. I'd buy ...

Re: I just don't get it

There is a loud minority on the internet that believes a woman improving her appearance to appeal more to a man is sexism/misogyny/patriarchy/etc. I don't see that in the Peloton ad. All Peloton ads strike me as with "I'm doing this for me" vibe, with an emphasis on health over appearance. As the s...

Re: DOOM! (Insert extra Os as you see fit)

Gold has done nothing exciting. Silver is in the toilet. And platinum has been flushed right into the septic tank.
But I had the providence to acquire a handful of palladium some years back, the sale of which should support me through the coming year.
