Re: Food

I've started adding a dash of the Mexican vanilla to my cold-brew coffee, alongside the sugar and half-n-half I already add. Very yummy.

Re: The capitol insurrection and its aftermath

By now, I suspect, even the densest of Trump fans is figuring out he is not going to pardon the capitol rioters after all. Who would have guessed that Trump would throw his most loyal supporters under the bus the second they became a liability. As low as that bar is, tens of millions of Americans s...

Re: The capitol insurrection and its aftermath

I'm taking for granted that of course McConnell knows things about the Capitol riot which us ordinary folk haven't learned yet. It's possible he said that in reference to things SO incredibly bad, even the Trumpiest of Trumpster Republicans would have to admit he's at fault (assuming anything could ...

Re: The capitol insurrection and its aftermath

Woooo, I wonder what this means regarding the chances of Trump's impeachment being approved by the Senate as well as the House? Mitch McConnell, speaking on the Senate floor, says the rioters were "provoked by the president and other powerful people."

A few of us here once had a chat about how much we dislike those "consequences" dreams where you have to deal with the aftermath of some cataclysmically dumb, or even ultra-evil, decision which your real waking self would NEVER be dumb or bad enough to do. I thought about this after reading about Ri...

The GOP’s existential crisis, explained by a former Republican Congress member -- “There’s no post-Trump plan. And they all know it.” What the hell happened to the Republican Party?

I saw something similar, about a woman on Tinder who changed her profile to sound very MAGA, accepted every request she got, and when MAGA men tried to impress her by bragging about their role in the capitol riot and/or sending her photos or videos, she'd send them to the FBI.

(Facepalm) This is from Wikipedia's page about Ku Klux Keller:
He was able to be recognized, in part, because of his height [6'6"], the fact that he was wearing a U.S. Olympic team jacket, and that his face was unobstructed in the video

Boebert is a piece of shit who should be expelled for supporting insurrection, but she didn't actually tweet Pelosi's location. She tweeter that Pelosi was no longer in the room.

The Capitol Police were seriously understaffed that day, compared to just about any other time ANY sort of public protest was planned there. Something definitely stinks about this.

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

If the allegations are true, it should be fairly easy to check the security camera footage from the day before to verify the claims. I also hope they look into the congresswoman who tweeted "1776" at the beginning of the day and then, while the mob rampaged through the capitol, live-tweeted Pelosi's...

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

Anyone suggesting complete overlap or complete separation of BLM protests and whatever we are calling buffalo dude insurrection isn't really taking analysis seriously. I feel like there's a decent-sized overlap between BLM riots and "Qultists smashing federal buildings" riots, but almost no overlap...
