Re: Occam, Trump, and Russia

In a year, when we're talking about Senator Arpaio, I'm going to remind you of this. Ha ha ha. That would be scary. If he runs, he'll take the nomination. From there, your only bright spot is that it stands to be a very bad year for the GOP. Well that and he'll be in his late 80's before he takes o...

Can't say I'm surprised. While they had great selection of high quality tea. It always seemed like they were trying to make their nut on vastly overpriced accessories.

So, you don't support him but you do think his unique traits make him better than the alternatives, and you don't want him removed and replaced. In political terms that is awfully close to support. Well in that case, he hasn't "lost" me yet either. I am still irritated by the Arpaio pardon, but in ...

I've lived in Atlanta long enough to note the local youth fashions and can confirm: yes, that's definitely the wrong underwear for those shorts.

We're totally getting a Saudi civil war. Also, if MBS sells out the Palestinians in exchange for foreign policy cover from the US, this will delegitimize secular reformers on the Arabian peninsula for a generation.
MBS? Is Palestine sub-prime?
Please elaborate.

I heard the exact same things said about Japan in the 80's.
Smoot–Hawley was 1930. Protectionism is as constant as the wind. It's fervor waxes and wanes. The current climate is by no means a high water mark.
