RCV is less complicated than the caucus rules, so I think Iowa can handle it.

Re: Petty annoyances

Airlines shrunk seats because people didn’t want larger seats. If you want more leg room, airlines have created a class between coach and business class that is a relatively reasonable cost above. Piffle. On next to no flights is there any option besides sardine class, save that if you book early e...

It’s amazing, though unsurprising, how little people know about other universal heath plans. Most have the equivalent of a public option a very small percentage ban private insurance, an even smaller percentage cover dental, home care etc and an ever smaller proportion have no copays or deductibles....

I have the concern about huawei and don’t have a particular take about us having monitoring capability. I mean it’s bad but not the same as chi coms with finger on the pulse. I don’t want China with that kind of ability. The difference being that lots of folks assumed the company was clean and didn...

Re: Living in an Age of Decadence?

Slower productivity growth isn’t bad but it means quality of life will improve more slowly than before. You get jumps in productivity growth in new eras (industrialization, electrification, etc). The most recent burst was the computational driven burst that went from ~1995-2005. The thing is that on...

You're seeing almost all her breast. Her costume was a proto-wonderbra. Everything is pushed together.
But now I'm thinking you don't care about that though.
Now I'm curious how Warren defines cleavage.
