Re: Roolz of the Rode

Is there any rule against crushing a cyclist who runs a red light on a merging road and blocks me from entering a turn lane immediately after the merging road? If I'm allowed to revoke the license of any sonnabitch that blocks the bike lane. Fair enough. Looks like they have North Florida Virginia ...

Re: The Not-So- and All-Too-Real World of North Korea

My read on Trump is he treats those he perceives as threats and rivals with cordiality while treating those as less so with disdain. It's all part of that "Art of the Deal" crap he seems to live for. He knows he has leverage on Canada and Mexico so uses it every chance he gets to get the "best" dea...

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. *checks secret bunke...

JFC. I'm amazed Trump's arm isn't broken from jacking himself so hard.

Re: Orange is the new President

North Korean State media says Trump agreed to lift sanctions. So either it happened, in which case he offered to give away the house for nothing, or it didn't happen, and the North Koreans are already lying about the content of the meeting. Either way, this whole pageant was just as idiotic as ever...

Wait, why would North Korean state media treat sanctions as a bad thing?

Why would they care if they can't trade with us when they already have the good stuff? I...

Re: Orange is the new President

It should be well established now that Trump just likes to spontaneously say stuff because he thinks it sounds good to him (often much to the surprise of his own administration). We'll have to wait to see what actually happens later. He does seem to base everything he does on media, and that's how ...
