Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

Frankfurt is one of the most boring and crappiest little towns in central europe, the idea that London City boys would move there is extraordinarily retarded. After my 27 hr flight I was stuck in the only decent bar/club in that town. I drank good beer, and had a surprisingly good steak tartare, bu...

Re: Twitter!

It’s also a disease of the conservative instincts around thin veneer of civilization/slippery slope to chaos. It has a long history. I'd have a lot more respect for "law and order" types if they held LEOs to the same standard. It’s authoritarian down in its bones. They Do What Needs to be Done. I'm...

Re: Orange is the new President

I was wondering why all of the sudden a bunch of conservatives started to care about Pruitt's corruption this week. Was it some sort of delayed conscience? Or perhaps good old fashioned ag interests?

Re: Twitter!

Interesting thread showing the prior period where Romans 13 was frequently cited in American discourse. I'm sure you'll be shocked to read that it was in defense of slavery. After the Civil War, citations fell abruptly because people saw what a shitty argument is. https://twitter.com/YAppelbaum/stat...

Yes, that's about as diplomatic as Trump has ever been. Two problems: 1) Wouldn't it be nice if he could be at least as diplomatic with frickin' Canada? Sure. That's why I said it shocked me. That said, Canada isn't a twitchy little country menacing anyone with nuclear weapons. We can afford to dip...

Hey don't worry, we got an agreement that is deeper than the ocean, one that can't be described by mere words . “Not all of that work appeared in the final document,” Pompeo said. “But lots of other places where there were understandings reached, we couldn’t reduce them to writing.” “Not all of that...

It's a thing that the patriarchy makes women do but I'll be dammed if I can actually figure out what it is.

That interpretation is open to interpretation apparently.

They'll punt on it as a political question an...

Depends how egregious the impropriety is.

Also, the specifics here are covered ...

Re: Occam, Trump, and Russia

I'm more thoreau-ian on this. There's a reason why presidents divest assets of this sort. Jimmy Carter sold his fucking peanut farm. Avoiding the appearance of corruption is important for norms. Particularly since the SCOTUS has set the bar for corruption almost impossibly high.
