Re: The gift that keeps on taking

The cherry on the top of this shit sundae is State highway planners are studying the possibility of including special lanes for driverless vehicles on I-94. Sure, why not? Hey, great! Maybe WEDC can count the jobs making the driverless vehicles as Foxconn jobs and manufacturing jobs! That way Foxco...

Re: Re: Make a Choice: Do you want to be Dead or Do you want to be a Felon?

Grandma wrote:She was threatened and beaten and coerced into ingesting the heroin.


And she would rather live her life as a felon than try to prevent the man who did that to her from doing it to anyone else's granddaughter. How do you think the other Grandmas might feel about that?

Re: What's wrong with the GOP, anyway?

I'm getting very tired of Trump's kind of "winning." Wow. That's gotta hurt, knowing you've got at least three more years of it left. How so? You think Trump's the only one who "wins!" that way? You think all the status-obsessed, power-hungry narcissists are going to disappear i...

Re: What's wrong with the GOP, anyway?

Trump Nominee for Federal Judgeship Has Never Tried a Case Despite the fact that he is totally unqualified, every Republican on the Judiciary Committee voted for him. This has been another episode of "Profiles in Courage", brought to you Sen. Flake and Corker. Nothing succeeds like nepoti...

Re: Election day

I'm o.k,. with the lessons the NYT Editorial Board is finding in Tuesday's results -- a mixture several flavors of diversity in response to Trump's message of intolerance, plus some new bread-and-butter ideas and some old bread-and-butter ideas, from motivated political newcomers and a few seasoned ...

Re: House hunting

I love the no-railing second floor deck! I'd be fine with it but I'm surprised they're trying to sell it that way. I'm not, given the peeling paint/unwaxed wood floors and trim look of the place. Maybe the seller is looking for the opposite of people who buy flipped houses -- some do-it-yourselfers...

Re: Election day

Sounds like Big Pharma's propaganda and $$$ won the day in Ohio, unfortunately. My friend from Brooklyn reports that she voted today, even though it was for "the same old Dems" as usual. I thanked her for voting :-D Wish we had had an election today. Another year until we can dump Walker s...

Re: Today in voter suppression

I'm not sure that the study "confirms" that. A decline alone wouldn't. But "more than four times the national decline" is pretty damning. That is a fair point, but Wisconsin is not an outlier among states in requiring photo ID's, so I'm at somewhat of a loss to explain how our r...

Re: World Series

That was indeed some game! Though I'm sorry I missed the 9th inning (because I thought it was more or less over after the 8th, and needed to wash the dishes) and that it didn't go to the 11th (because I'm supporting the Dodgers/routing against the Astros for the flimsiest of reasons). That really wa...

"How many people on this Forum do you think voted for Trump?" My guess is about 80%, including the person who posted that. Most people here are very right-wing. Roy appears to be a paid shill of the right. Skipping Roy for the moment, let's just contemplate that 80% for Trump estimate. &q...
