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

Wow. We're regressing through Neo-Victorian into Honor Culture dueling over giving offense.

Maybe my sword and pistol skills will be useful if I want to keep playing Scrabble at the local game night.

This channel is bonkers. I love the titles: "Top 10 Best Dangerous Superpowers of Water 2017"

A lot of the videos are junk, but the rest are pretty cool.

Re: Twitter!

This country can't have several carrier groups AND national health care. We can have one or the other, but not both. That's not an ideological statement, or a policy preference, or anything else. That's arithmetic. This is double good because that guy's Twitter handle refers to being a warship from...

Re: I just don't get it

Evidentiary standards are higher for people who are not blatantly bad-faith actors who have rejected the values civilization, like someone who shoots at the cops when they come with a warrant. If you won't come peacefully to court, you can't argue that you never got the benefit of a lawyer.

Re: Marriage is Totally Gay

As long as you aren't actively threatening people, human life has value. Thus emergency staff should always preserve life as a base value. That (emergency survival) is separate from transacting economically IMO. If a coffee house can rightfully not serve a group of skin heads who want to have a Nazi...

I think it's a good thing that they helicoptered in some real American heroes so there were fewer civilians at risk, rather than droning a while household. If the gummint only conducted raids like this, they would have less pushback from me. Matter of fact, if I was in a position where I had a priva...

Jason, what goes into that preference? I found the social media aspect of Venmo kind of off-putting, and the UI wasn't great IMO.

Re: Orange is the new President

Refusing to serve someone you despise is one of the joys of being the owner of a business. If I owned my own business, I would equally like to refuse business to Richard Spencer and the guy who bullied me when I was growing up. I doubt that you would extend the joy of refusal (I bet 'joy of refusal...
