Re: When journalism goes bad

It's The Guardian, it's an opinion piece, and again, it's The Guardian, so I'm aware this isn't journalism on 3 levels. But still bad: Do you boast about your fitness? Watch out – you’ll unavoidably become rightwing

By that standard, based on her photo, she's clearly not rightwing.

I'm sorry, I can't parse 'dislike of Natalie Dormer'. It looks like English but it makes zero sense to me.
I had no idea who this person was, and upon googling her, it appears I have seen zero things she's been in. This hermit thing is going better than I expected.

I want fewer voters, not more. Like maybe no votes for employees of any level of government. Or require that voters had to be born in the lower 48 and all parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents were US citizens (tough luck for you, McCain and George Romney!).

I assume this would include active-duty military?
Sure. I don't see why not. And any "no welfare" rule would certainly encompass most farmers and ranchers.

Re: Guns and Whatnot.

The government would never make up allegations against a political enemy. They'd never do something like claim someone had hired a hitman to kill 6 people to smear them in a pending case and then never bring those charges.

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

Much of the red pill/pua stuff snaps into focus when one replaces "women" with "women with lots of cluster B personality traits." When the guys engage in behavior specifically designed to attract those women, what a surprise, every woman they deal with is a borderline or narcissist. I wonder what th...

Re: cars and how they get that way

It's not just profit margin, it's volume. Porsche's Cayenne has always been the highest selling vehicle they make, from the minute they started selling them. SUVs are what lots of people want to buy. That's proof we live in a horrible simulation: people are going to Porsche dealerships and buying a...

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

The science journal Nature publishes one sci-fi story a week. A lot of them are boring, notable only for their high-art pretensions. But this one is good: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-06698-2 OK, maybe I only like it because it appeals to my libertarian sympathies via a scenario of "I...

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

But the idea that politeness and civility is owed to anyone in a position of power is one of the great gotchas of liberal thought.
I'll read the piece later, but I wonder what the author's opinion was of the people who didn't show politeness and civility to Obama when he was president.

You know the profit margins in SUVs are large when Ferrari, Bentley, Maserati, and Lamborghini are all jumping on board.

The memes flooding forth using the "believe in something" ad language have really been making my week. My favorites so far have been the plane heading towards the twin towers, the Killdozer, and the Heaven's Gate aftermath.
