Re: Putin on the Writs

Most here I think are of the opinion economic sanctions don't actually make countries (their governments more specifically) behave better. So does that mean we should treat shady foreign businesses legitimately even if we know they are not in hopes that the broader culture and market will push them...

Re: Orange is the new President

The funny thing is that Republicans are actually proving that SJW stuff is more important than real issues. Stephen Moore's nomination is not being threatened by the fact that he is a wholly unqualified crank and hack, but that he wrote some sexist stuff in NR almost 2 decades ago . If you want peop...

Oh look, those godless heathens at the Christian Science Monitor used it too.

Alabama's latest effort: criminalize abortion TWO weeks after conception, and make it a death penalty offense to boot. In some wishful part of my mind, I want the next Roe v. Wade challenge to be something so stupid that it gets slapped down 8-1 or 9-0. And yet, I'm not confident that would actuall...

And the Iron Curtain going down was only good for a brief lull in anxiety.

On the other hand, they're playing deceptive Y-axis games, making a ~12% rise since actual attacks on US soil look like a ~33% jump.
Iraq and the Balkans align with the bounceback, so it makes a bit of sense.

Re: When life gives you Yemens

But unlike some of the other items that Congress has tried to make unvetoable, they are more akin to legislation. Warmaking is an explicitly Congressional act with no presidential involvement.
