Re: Damn database problems

Yeah, it seemed at the moment like a possible explanation, but the moment didn't last very long. I'm going to float the idea of a Facebook Grylliade Group page as a safe-haven of sorts in the event the site crashes and burns. I know some of us are not active FBers and I don't see it as a viable long...

Shit, I forgot Six is a Moderator too. Something about this code specifically locks mods out? Has anyone spoken to Rachel lately? Is David's account accessible?

The one thing I do have to give him credit for is he hasn't started a war with Iran or North Korea.
I think the credit there goes to the fact that the leaders of those nations, though madmen, are not crazy.

Re: Orange is the new President

In fairness, Trump hasn't accomplished much of his agenda, such as it was or may at the moment be. I underestimated, as I suspect everyone did, his obliviousness and indifference to the rule of law is and grudgingly have to give him credit for using what unchecked executive powers he does have as we...

Re: Orange is the new President

*whispers* The progressive wing is actually pretty small outside of Twitter. It's small as a percentage of Democrats, let alone voters in general, but it's large enough among Democratic activists to make a difference in both the nomination and the party platform.

I just got in trouble on Twitter yet again because I asked Trump if Biden's latest ad would give him a stroke.
He usually takes three strokes per hole according to his caddies and hookers.

Re: Dancing With the Dems

I actually heard one of the talking heads advance the theory that Biden's supporters are fine with him sleeping and playing with his oatmeal all through his term in office because his staff will do a better job of running things than DJT. That's a lot of faith in a staff that hasn't been named yet....

I'm sure more living Republicans would have ranked Lincoln more highly if it weren't for that pesky Emancipation Proclamation and 13th Amendment.
Refusing to abandon Fort Sumter was also problematic.

Re: The son of "What the hell are YOU staring at?"

Knives Out was a fun whodunit. Good writing, excellent framing with numerous little visual jokes peppered in. With so many actors of note the talent couldn't help but be underutilized in a two-hour movie, but they all did well and will surely crowds. It did a good job of paying off the breadcrumbs ...
