Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

I appreciate Ted Cruz going to Cancun so that people can dunk on him without having to be dicks about innocent people suffering. He is truly a humanitarian.

Re: Observations of the Random sort

Everything was way more expensive back then. Remember my " historically rich " game? I still play it, almost unconsciously/automatically, anytime I read any well-done, well-detailed piece of historical fiction or non-fiction. I've been trying to make a modern price comparison of sorts -- I've been ...

Re: Random covid-19 observations

Why are states loosening restrictions right before the Super Bowl? Even if you think loosening restrictions is the right thing, wait until after the super spreader event. Like here, before CNY, they adjusted the 8 houseguests at a time rule to 8 houseguests per day, to prevent the possibility of mas...

What is Trump even doing these days? With the caveat that I'm not the most informed person, it seems like after he got booted from Twitter he dropped off the face of the earth. He has set up the "Office of the Former President". Also his lawyers are bailing on him setting up the hope for him to rep...

Re: Surprise! It's Government's Good Side

Hey, if it makes an idiot babble, maybe it has promise. Haven't followed the whole discussion obviously, but I agree with you about private prisons needing to go.

Re: No Sandwich is Safe: The Joe Biden Presidency

If you think it's bad that the government can do things/make decisions, the filibuster is nice as another way of the government failing to do things or make decisions. If you think it's important for the government to be able to act, then the filibuster is a giant middle finger with no real princip...

Re: No Sandwich is Safe: The Joe Biden Presidency

I just watched 4 years of a senate that had to include their cross party brethren in most matters for fear of organized filibusters of important bills. Earmarks are gone and I don't see how the back room deals end just because there is no filibuster. The only thing that passed, aside from a basical...

The Bucs were an ideal team for Brady to go to weapons wise and the Pats were a hot mess close to the brink. Belichick did take a Matt Cassel led team to 11-5 (though they missed the playoffs)

And Congress' inability to get bills through puts pressure on the Executive branch to rule by presidential and regulatory fiat, rendering Congress even less relevant. This. It not a coincidence that the imperial presidency accelerated at the same time that routine filibusters did. The other thing i...
