Re: Orange is the new President

My best guess is that 'The Situation Room' is actually a series of rooms - a real high level scif (like where you saw the gang watch the Bin Laden raid), a general purpose executive meeting room (which is probably cleared for Secret), and an anteroom or two where people can do admin stuff and standb...

Re: Our Friends, The House of Saud

This situation must be understood in the context of Saudi and Islamic culture. Any Arab leader, particularly a young one who has recently assumed power in a traditional and mostly tribal society, has to carefully maintain his and his country’s stature and prestige, what classical Muslim scholars ca...

Re: Orange is the new President

Like, it's likely Manafort would have still be living his best life if he hadn't become the center of the political universe. And it's more that peculiar and particular form the Mueller investigation has unfolded than the fact that he was very prominent for a couple of months in summer 2016.

Yeah no spark so not running.

And my place does set aside some time for classic/project cars. Also apparently 1970s now count as classic.
In Virginia right now you can get antique plates for any car built before 1992.

Like for instance that cop that is in trouble for shooting and killing that Bundy standoff guy is not in trouble for actually shooting the guy, but for not doing everything right afterwards.

Re: Orange is the new President

Trump runs his administration more like a mob boss. It certainly looks bad, and clearly it's not very efficient and often a chaotic mess, but that's just how he likes to do things. It's idiotic but I don't see it being criminal or some kind of shadowy cabal. Maybe its different for the high poobahs...

This is MBS's lack of maturity and maybe thinking the Trump style works 1) on the world stage 2) when you're not in possession of the most powerful military in world history.

Re: If We Build It, They'll Probably Still Come

An alternate take is that the Trump administration discovered and prosecuted a sexual predator who was hired under Obama administration policies. Your job interview is complete, you now have your choice of writing for the Federalist or the Tucker Carlson show. https://a.playmoss.com//uploads/images...

There's a case to be made that if employment was completely decoupled from health care, both businesses and employees (and potential businesses and potential employees) would be a lot better off.

At Dulles yesterday, you didn't need to take off your shoes or empty your pockets. Which would have been useful to know before I did that.

Almost all new construction in the city of Houston is infill townhomes. They squeeze about 6 in on a 10K lot. Shared driveway, barely a yard. Technically single family because they aren't attached.

Well, the other thing is you can't walk around naked in the backyard of your three story townhome.
