How Google Maps is way ahead of everybody else.

Just checked my neighbourhood & saw the same thing.

It's not complete: I checked where my horse is boarded. One side of the street shows buildings, the other does not.

I'm not sure Mike Pence would be much of an improvement. Isn't he a YEC?

Re: Spearfishing With Luke: The Last Jedi thread with spoilers!

especially since there are suspicions of a mole on board. Was this ever alluded to? From what I remember, everyone just accepted that "oh they can track us now."

I am going to go full MGTOW here for a moment. By the end of the movie, (and I agree it was interminable: I had to pee really bad by the time Luke Skywalkered in) I was starting to wonder: Is there a single decent male with brains in the entire Galaxy Far, Far Away?

Re: When journalism goes bad

Conservatives say follow the law and be compliant with the police because that actually works for the vast majority of white people. So in their view, since it works for them, those complaining about it aren't doing it right or have ulterior motives. Yes. I am a white male over 65. My experiences w...

Re: When journalism goes bad

There is conservative intersectionality with black church folk. It is a thing. See Prop 8 in Cali. If not for the whole racism thing that chases people into Team Blue,, so-cons would be even stronger in this country. Agreed. I think the GOP will ultimately turn towards someone like Huckabee.

Re: Orange is the new President

Trump's 'cognitive tests' just gave me one more reason to question the validity of intelligence testing. It's not an intelligence test. It's a basic mental functioning test. The doctor confirmed that he's coherent enough to know who he is and where he is. He can name animals and replicate basic sha...

Re: Orange is the new President

I think 'white middle class' includes going to church (not mosque or temple), eating American food (not curry and shit) and speaking exclusively unaccented (unless the accent is a local accent) English. Exactly. "Weird" looking people aren't that big a deal for most part if they have similar custom...

Re: When journalism goes bad

It feels like the racist veneer description is a bit too simple. By analogy the left just wants free stuff paid for by people they don’t like and left elites want the power to decide who gets what. There is some truth there but I’m not going to say that’s all there is. I think conservatives worried...

I mean ordinal. Like this is Trump's 70th worst scandal or some shit like that. What's the equivalent 70th worst scandal for Obama? Going on ESPN to fill out a March Madness bracket?
For Trump, I think we're going to have to expand that spreadsheet beyond 1,000 rows.

So if we were to rank presidential scandals 1 through 1000 for each president, is "Trump banging a porn star 3 months after his son was born" at "Obama wearing a tan suit" or "Obama putting his feet up on the desk"?
I think it is more on the level of the David Cameron 'Pig-gate' scandal.
