Re: It's not the size of the screen...

I saw that one. I was fine with the mid century modern, but the 70s one was too literal. I didn't care for the frisbee wall at all, and the Burt Reynolds thing was visibly poorly crafted.

Re: Orange is the new President

It normally would be something that the President of the United States undermined public confidence in the entire aviation industry, but I guess that's the advantage of having a complete joke as President.

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

Wasn't NYC occupied by the British for most of the war, and thus not really good Narrative?

(edit - there's also the problem that the greatest hero in the Hudson Valley theater of operations is also the greatest villain)

Re: Neoliberalism - Booga Booga

Shem I agree with you on the New Deal. But the conditions for 'revolution' are much riper when there's 25% unemployment (& only about 30% of working age women were in paid employment) than the current unemployment rate of 4% (and a bunch of old people pushing down the participation rate)

I'm sorta with Jason in that I agree with Delong that the right side of the political ideological spectrum is a smoking radioactive crater, but Delong I think is significantly discounting the downside risk. The status quo right now is not quite getting poked in the eye with a sharp stick. It's more ...

Until reading that comic, I did think perhaps quesadilla was not actually etymologically related to queso (the same way hamburger is not related to ham).

Jason, I'm with you, but trying to get people to like banks has been the uphill fight of politics for all of American History. It's probably the 3rd most defining feature of American History after slavery and western expansion.
