Re: When journalism goes bad

conservatism was always more or less a polite veneer on racism in the domestic sphere. I tend to agree, and it's from years of watching conservatives engage with libertarians. When conservatives speak/write for themselves, they couch everything in terms of social institutions and a law abiding soci...

Re: Mattingly, I thought I told you to trim those sideburns!

I pulled out my Norelco the other day, and it was not as good as a Mach III. Had to pull out the Old Spice (just the after-shave, which is probably a bottle I bought before they even started trying to be the New Axe) because my neck was burning. Maybe the blades are dull.

After 7 years, I've gone back to clean-shaven. We'll see how long I can tolerate dealing with razors again. Are razors easier to deal with than Norelco?

I saw a work van yesterday with this name on the side: "Mason's Plumbing."

Would I like this to end with the double benefit of the cops disbanding or severely curtailing the use of SWAT teams? Yeah. We've seen that most of them are used for dubious deployments, for drug raids and non-violent offenders. Would that end up with an increase in the danger to cops? Yeah, it pro...
