I find it refreshing that someone looks at problems that people express themselves, and then looks for accessible frames of reference to present solutions in a digestible format.
Round these parts we call that therapy.

So, uh... who's going to tell him that the version of the story he's going off of was largely invented by the same people who did Frozen? They can also be the ones to note that nobody ever got an A by watching the movie instead of reading the book.

Doesn't the current evidence suggest it *doesn't* work for ducks? I thought it was more that they were locked in an evolutionary battle, much like the crazy alt universe guys on ST:TOS.

The whole, is the dress blue or gold thing is getting ridiculous now. I do not know why Team Blue and the MSM thinks anybody besides themselves cares about Trump's affairs.

Since the President is the wellspring of all classification, I'd say it's not even a matter of meeting the standard. It's like asking if Article II of the Constitution is constitutional.

1 . Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes - Apolitical
Don Quixote is one of the most famous satires ever written. It was political from start to finish; we just don't notice because unless you've taken classes in the Spanish Golden Age, you don't have the context it was written in.

The draft dodging, weed smoking plus hiding affairs (making him vulnerable to blackmail) would have sunk WJC. The first two happened long enough before that they'd be quickly chalked up to being youthful indiscretions. The adultery, on the other hand, would have gotten him bounced. Not the fucking ...

If the commercials weren't effective then the advertisers wouldn't be able to afford to run them.
With a $40 price tag on what's probably a $5 bear, you don't need many hits to come out ahead. Especially when you're advertising on what is essentially the Dogpatch Herald of the TV world.
