Re: Rand Paul.....sigh.

rand paul is kind of a piece of shit and i think everyone needs to be ok with that. In the context that all politicians are pieces of shit and he's a slightly smaller piece of shit I can agree. No, I'm squarely on the dhex xpress on this one. Rand has gone full-on Trump sycophant to the point where...

I know the Supreme Court has basically made bribery legal, but what the fuck?

Re: You Learn Something New Every Day

The USAF proposed using 1000 rockets to pause the earth's rotation in response to a nuclear attack in order to have the missiles miss their target. A RAND engineer thought this force would rupture the earth to the core.

Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

What are you talking about? I'm talking about everyone that got a bonus check from their employer last year. House GOP leaders are making the midterms all about the tax law and it's not a challenge to sell. That's 3 million people, which is 1% of the population or 3% of households. As for running o...

Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

Trump isn’t a reaction to Blue policy, he’s a reaction to Hillary. Obama would have mopped the floor with him. If anything, his victory in the primary is a reaction to Red policy. He spoke a lot of pieties about maintaining the social safety net. The Obama repeal went down in flames, despite only ne...

Re: Good Cover Versions

Couldn't part of that be that female instrumentalists for classical orchestras compete on a level playing field (auditions behind a curtain), while pop music does not have that. Also, the commercial pressures in both markets select for different talents.
