Re: Petty annoyances

Google News' "Technology" section is now about 45% videogame stuff and 45% cellphone stuff. I would like to revise my opinion. It's about 48% each. My beef with The Algorithm is that I watch a bunch of gardening videos, three lectures on soil biology, a blacksmithing playlist, and *one* GPU teardow...

Re: Putin on the Writs

The 2016 election result is legitimate. I'm not in the "After we impeach we need an election do-over" camp. We impeach Trump for the things he's actually done (emoluments clause violations, obstruction of justice, and probably collusion with a foreign adversary after Mueller's report comes out), we...

Re: Putin on the Writs

Personally, I think it is moot. Trump is not going to be convicted in an impeachment trial The GOP is still running scared of the Trumpists, who will never accept anything less than absolute loyalty to Trump from their Congresscritters. Even if Team Red's wettest dreams come true and they win contro...

Re: Putin on the Writs

All this talk of voting machines and hacking makes me feel like a yokel, what with us Canadians relying on primitive paper ballots.*

(*OK. I shouldn't snark. We almost never have more than one position to vote on at any election and referenda are very rare.)

Re: Twitter!

Even if Sesame Street gets enough with the times that Bert and Ernie got married , I still doubt any little kids watching will think about them having sex with each other (unless they hear their homophobic parents ranting about it).

So, denying the citizenship of Latinos born near the border was only step one.
