Re: Calling 2020 for Entropy

One of the small joys I am looking forward to - assuming Trump loses * - is rubbing the noses of the MAGAs in their own shit. What would you rub their faces in and what would make you think they would feel shame about it? Nothing more than their own boasting about how Trump will win in 2020 by a la...

Re: Calling 2020 for Entropy

CoSprings is balanced out by Boulder. Denver is reliably Blue, and I don't get the sense that the suburban counties surrounding Denver are buying Trump's apocalyptic rhetoric, though it's conceivable that JeffCo could turn red. Rural and mountain counties are reliably Red but sparsely populated. It ...

Re: The son of "What the hell are YOU staring at?"

Charley Varrick , a 70s small-town crime thriller starring Walter Matthau with Joe Don Baker in the Anton Chigur role. Really good at ramping up the tension and keeping you guessing at what Matthau is up to now. Oh, and it featured a young Andrew Robinson, who I didn't recognize without his Cardass...

Re: the entirely civil and thoughtful israel thread

I gotta admit, I kinda like Trump/Jared's approach of piecemeal normalization of relations between Israel and various other players in the ME. I'm not 100% sure whether its a real thing, or other leaders pulling the wool over the Trump Administration's eyes. Hopefully Hunter Biden keeps it going com...
