Re: Fly the Friendly Skies...

I think we might have finally reached pre-checkception. Over time I've noticed the lines getting longer and longer and flying today the TSA pre-check line was longer than the regular line. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted and at least you avoid the porno-scanner. Longer, but faster #twss ?

Yglesias had a good take re: the reaction to one journalist vs. Thousands of Yemenis. Stalin was right. That and, what would the US do that would have any impact on Saudi Arabia that we'd want it to do? Evil, shitty governments do evil, shitty things. Unless we're gonna bomb them or start an oil tr...

Re: Our Friends, The House of Saud

I'm trying to figure out how the NSA would have the bureaucratic wherewithal to be paying attention to the conversations by mid level officials of a nominally allied country about a fairly random dude who is a US resident but not citizen.

I mean, if management doesn't understand or even know how long a process is supposed to take, they aren't doing their jobs, for which they are ostensibly paid even more (or have some other perq or upward mobility)

To be clear, I was talking about the scenario where his business empire is dismantled, he loses most of his assets, Trump Tower has to be sold, the new owner evicts him, and he refuses to leave.

Donald Trump the guy probably won't ever face charges, but I"m pretty sure the Trump Organization can look forward to being gutted by the NYAG over the next 3-5 years, which actually might be worse for him.
