Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

So I had some people knee jerk about me being a stupid trumpkin based on my observations that 1) a mask mandate if actually enforced isn't a minor change, it's the illegality of public socializing with food and drink - restaurants and bars and 2) the link above about mask behavior being oddly diffi...

Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

I suspect public transit and masks in that space are a gigantic effect in many countries and the overall story is very hard to figure out. The UK and Scandinavian countries for example have very low rates of mask use, almost no mask mandates and very low infection rates. I'm talking infection rates ...

Re: The Enemy of My Enemy

Who said nothing is beyond the pale? I'll tell you one way we shouldn't be deciding what's beyond the pale - people saying they are going to die because of a Tom Cotton op ed should have no input in what's beyond the pale because they aren't even making an argument. They don't even believe what they...

Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

KY implementing mandatory masks in all public spaces tomorrow. That's the end of bars. Self reported mask wearing behavior meanwhile seems to have very low to no correlation to spikes in infection rates elsewhere FWIW. https://www.economist.com/graphic-detail/2020/07/08/face-off-over-face-masks-euro...

If he chose anyone else, Lindsey Graham, Jeff Session, or Lynn Cheney it wouldn’t have generated half the outrage that it did.

This is an untrue statement. My evidence for this is the completely garbage reasoning they published.

Did that CA guy seriously suggest Rushdie had it coming for being problematic? He positioned the "motley" group with juvenile labels insinuating each had special cause to worry about the Righteous Purge. What was that all about?

The other thing in there about differentiating your product from your competitors - it's super weird how such a thing is not required of people trying to get people fired. They have no obligation to differentiate anything. All they have to do is say something then suggest that disagreement makes you...

Re: The Enemy of My Enemy

I'm sorry that's terrible and a red herring. That argument entails the idea that "You are a White Supremacist if you disagree with me in any regard" or literally flat out lying with "I'm in danger when you say anything I don't like, my life, my BODY is at stake" then amplifying those messages challe...

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

I'm more and more interested at looking real hard at the Cantonic model of local government in Switzerland. The normal answer people give to local corruption is to nationally regulate something something, but it isn't at all clear to me that works here. Local governments it seems to me are deeply, d...

It looks weird only if you think there's anything other than "give me cover for the outcome I want". But yeah, the idea of activism has always had that problem. I'm skeptical of the judiciary rewriting laws but would prefer they rule narrowly on elements that entail rights violations. For the most p...

Re: The Enemy of My Enemy

I think my last Pledge was in like 5th grade. Regardless if we are saying the movement itself and institutions supporting it are engaging in Falwellian religious activity, I completely agree with that but I'm surprised it counts as an excuse.
