I would not be surprised if Amash lost the primary. If he does, the Michigan 3rd District is going to be (D). Not a chance. West MI is deeply wedded to the GOP they will vote R no matter what name follows it. This is the place that gave us Jerry Ford after all. (oh c'mon I keed I keed) (and yeah i ...

Re: Petty annoyances

It's just brilliant that Apple puts the dictation options in the Keyboard preferences, and not in, say, the dictation portion of Accessibility, where I logically looked getting more and more frustrated and angry until googling.

Re: Iran (so far away)

It just seems so transparently obvious though? I haven't dug down more than headlines but what possible motivation does Iran have for doing this sort of thing? Flase flags have to be plausible.

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

I do get perturbed at how much lefties sometimes push this idea that restraint is impossible and that there aren't 5 billion ways to get off with each other that don't involve impregnation.

What a dishonest piece of shit. I'm sure you've seen the video of the Dean hearing but for Gaetz's youtube channel they edited the part where Dean pwnd him, and they didn't do it just by cutting it out, they spliced it so you think the laughter was to something other than Gaetz being a moron.

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

Economic growth matters more than almost everything else in a practical sense. I dunno, does the practical sense involve things like the environment? Avoiding civil unrest? You call it an unwinding, I think of it as re-orientation. I think people are getting smarter about economic growth and realiz...

Consumers got inventive; word art, in particular, combined individual tastes with easily marketable inspirational catchphrases. ...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

Hmm. I wonder if the prevalence of social media now amplifies how insignificant everyone is. Because yes, you can now connect with just about everyone on the planet that shares your interests and outrages, but the fact that everyone else is also screaming into the cacophony, it only magnifies how y...

Enjoying Good Omens. Except for this empty feeling that however it is, it would be better if it could have had Alan Rickman in it, in any role at all. And once again Jon Hamm somehow irritates the heck out of me. I have yet to see him in anything post-Mad Men that I didn't find him to be jarringly d...

Re: Inequality

On further thought, I believe a problem is that we don't really have a concept for what a truly mixed income community would look like. It's so baked into our cultural assumptions that the rich and poor will naturally separate into different living spaces, and that that is indeed part of the whole p...
