Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

Politicians might not care about the cost to us, but some of the people that they have to keep happy care very much about the bond markets. We cannot have a bunch of aircraft carriers AND single-pay AND tax rates that get them re-elected AND anything approaching economic stability. We can have two ...

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

Time to go cross eyed staring at our future so I can choose the least destructive among them. At some point, you don't need to look too close, because the actual thing imposed (if any) is going to fought over (and fought against) by people who don't give a shit what we think. Plus both sides will t...

Blues have convinced themselves that Single Payer will be affordable because the profit motive will be taken out of the equation and suddenly prices and costs will fall to levels like those in Canada.

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

In the Senate, there are a lot more Red seats up than Blue seats in 2020. The Blues could win control of both houses. If they get a Blue president, I think some form of Universal Plan is inevitable. The only question is "How big will the bill be?" I am sure that the Blues will indulge in a lot of ha...

Re: If We Build It, They'll Probably Still Come

ICE puts out call to have immigrants help kids locked up. They come and it’s a sting they use as an excuse to check criminal backgrounds and deport people. This is fucking depraved.

Re: Inequality

Never mind that, every other generation turned out OK, so all those indicators that don't match the past are totally wrong. Since the industrial revolution, each successive generation has had problems previous generations did not. And, of course, they were doomed because 'things are different now.'

I also wonder if superhero fatigue is going to finally start setting in at some point. I don't plan on seeing every Marvel movie as they come out as I did a few years ago. I'll wait for the reviews and make a decision. And in most cases if I do decide I need to see it, I'm still waiting for blu-ray...
