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...

Re: Observations of the Random sort

Exactly 0% of the people that say, "Mark Wahlberg is one of Hollywood's biggest stars because look at how much money his movie makes," would also say, "Sam Jackson is the biggest star ever to grace the silver screen." I would like to know the percentage of people that subscribe to either of those p...

It adorable that Tom Cotton thinks he can be president. He's basically Ted Cruz without charm, looks or charisma.

Maybe it is time to stop paying attention to the media. All of the media, including the intertubes, twitter, and whatever.

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.

Re: Observations of the Random sort

To me, the stock market hype right now feels much like January 2000 and November 2007. Everybody seems to be predicting that the market will continue to make huge gains.

Maybe they are right. But my gut says 'bubble.'

The story doesn't give actual reasons for why the HOA thinks this is an appropriate remedy, nor verification that "people living in a garage" is the reasoning for the rule.
