Re: Stupid Politicians

I think that your non-recognition of reality when it doesn't fit your narrative seems to be a matter of principle to you. I nominate this for the least self-aware post in the entire history of the interwebs. I meant, the cuts that Occam's Razor left on the original post would have caused any mental...

Re: Stupid Politicians

So by past experience, if people are willing to go through the roof of a bank or tunnel up from below or use brute force to get what they want; if that does not deter them from getting into even a bank vault, why would anyone think that having guns locked in a gun cabinet would deter them? Because ...

Re: "Why do liberals keep losing the gun control debate?"

In your case, 'struggle' isn't really accurate. More like, 'prolonged and agonizing public fail.' I was polite and respectable with my comment, and truly do not understand why you feel the need to treat me with such hostility. I never claimed to be as smart as you or Jonny or jman or Bland or Henry...

The meaning of the word 'most.'

You also biffed it in your ludicrous 'fact check' of Roy's bullshit.

In your case, 'struggle' isn't really accurate. More like, 'prolonged and agonizing public fail.'

Re: The Giant Wagstaff CD Listening Project Thread

Final note: post-Slim Chance, lane colloborated with Pete Townshend for the album Rough Mix . I love that record, but it's filed under T. I'll get there, but in the meantime, listen to this: "April Fool" One of my favorite records, and favorite songs. He is also featured on "Evolutio...

Re: Nazi Punks f' off

It's not enough to succeed. Others must fail. I think this is the basis of the core Trump vote. They didn't have a rationale in the rational sense. They were operating out of some pre-verbal brain center that says "Me angry! Hate! Destroy!" While this may be true for many, I think you're ...

Re: New Orleans

There's always the Kickapoo Reserve . The La Farge dam was proposed as early as the 1930s as a means to control flooding in the northern part of the Kickapoo River Valley. After many false starts, in 1962 Congress authorized a flood control dam at La Farge. With some modifications, it took its final...

Re: Nazi Punks f' off

What I'm increasingly struck by is the weird mixture of ignorance and naivete being exhibited by our local right wing. It takes a particular kind of stupid to say, as Roy did recently, that 'Black Lives Matter is more racist than the KKK ever was.' But is that even stupid? I guess I see it more as a...

So is Trump a Communist or a Nazi? CNN.MSNBC can't make up what passes for their "mind". 2017 to Ned: Russia hasn't been a communist country for decades. Hmmm. I thought Trump's hero Putin was a Commie? So that's your response? "Hey, look - a red squirrel?" I can't say I'm surpr...
