Re: Putin on the Writs

Optics? I mean I assume it's easier to be corrupt and have more influence if people think there is an actual process over there and not a capricious dictatorship. Why would you invest anything over there knowing you can be shaken down with no recourse? I don't think it's about more power just the sa...

Re: Putin on the Writs

People. When he says that he is transferring more authority to parliament, including the power to choose the prime minister and senior cabinet members, instead of the president as under the current system he means HE is going to do the choosing when he's elected to parliament. And by that you mean,...

Re: Observations of the Random sort

I mean I just dont understand the top down approach on climate change. They know all the major polluters and they know they will weasel out. There is a large incentive for cheating. It feels like a waste of time. I think we should be figuring out how to live with a changing environment not trying fo...

I just dont see how it would work on a large scale. Reimportation will just push other countries to ban it at some point when it makes more economic sense to send limited meds over to the us.

Dolomite is my name is a lot of fun. It's actually more of a feel good movie. Best stuff Eddie Murphy has done in a while.
I was afraid to watch it. Dolomite is just to damn bad. It would break my heart if they fucked it up. I just assumed it was as great as Black Dynamite and moved on.

Re: Iran (so far away)

There are stories coming out that we used the Iraqi PM as a middle man negotiator to lure Soleimani. Soleimani was supposedly in Iraq carrying Iran's response to negotiations. Oh, shit. If that is true, that is REALLY bad. Also, Pence is trying to blame him for 9/11. https://twitter.com/janearraf/s...
