    Yup. I'm starting to use "against their own enlightened self-interest"....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    "How do I justify the state"? Let's consider the question. I have been, a couple times, a dues-paid member of the Wobblies. I moved back to being a socialist. Why? Ok, at a socialist meeting a couple years ago, one...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Sorry, I vehemently disagree. I want to go back to the 90% inheritance tax. In the US, it's on estates over $5M? $10M, but not 90%, they rolled that down. Let me put it this way: back in the nineties,...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Note: all research done by the US government, and any contracts as work-for-hire, unless the contract says otherwise, is legally in the public domain, as it was paid for by my tax dollars....

    That's the best product I've seen since the $1k USD for the cryogenically-treated speaker cables....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Oh, come on, I thought I read that a year or three ago. And we know that there's life on it, and the planet's name, and how to get there: Rann, and just hop a zeta beam, right, Adam Strange?...

    I've yet to see *anyone* on the left (well, Liz Warren tried, but no one wanted to read or actually report on her plans) tell them not only what you're going to do, but why what your opponents are doing...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    I'm lost: the greens, as opposed to the environmentalists? I would assume they're the same thing....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    For this whole thread... Breaking even is preventing the other side from dragging us more towards fascism. Winning is beginning the long slog *back*. Over here, if my Congressman were not good, I'd have run for this year. I have...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Ahem, ahem. Speaking as the former co-chair, and then the chair (retired) of the Committee To Save The Brontosaurus "Although the type species, B. excelsus, had long been considered a species of the closely related Apatosaurus,[3] researchers proposed in 2015...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Can we drop this? I mentioned that it was my opinion, and had ZERO intention of going any further with it. Oh, yes, the medical examiner's report... from a "medical examiner" who, a few years later, was found to have...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    And it *stops* in the middle! Ya bum, Can you see that as an elasmosaurus?...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    My late ex and I had two cats, and lived in the exurb in an immobile home. The big one, we decided was going to be an indoor cat after the second $200+ vet bill in six months (fights). The...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    I know. [shakes head] "Oh, we have to come up with new names", partly I think they went to "primary care" because it allows large practices (esp. when owned by hedge funds) and insurance companies in the US to make...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    My late ex was, as she put it, an ovo-lacto-seafoodo vegetarian. Her thing was "didn't like meat", and also all the resources to raise meat. Lobster - she was also a master diver (that's a certification), and had gone hand-to-claw...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Oh, by the bye: one of my favorite columnists, Marinna Hyde, has a column in today's (Wed) Guardian. One cmt, referring to Bojo and Cummings: Or to put it in the complex intellectual terms it deserves, some street heckler once...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Perhaps... but the real point is that this is FIFTEEN (or so) YEARS LATER. He's using it to attack Scarbourough (who I think accidentally killed that aide).... but for the Orange Scum, collateral damage is a nothingburger....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    The left REALLY, REALLY needs to go full-bore aggressive, and jump down the right-wing media's throats with hobnail boots... AND LIBEL LAWSUITS....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    By the bye, has Bojo & co increased the NHS budget by, what was it, 154#, or 354#?...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    I think we need to pass laws, that abt demonstrably false advertising in a political campaign, or by elected officials, is illegal, and the persons using it are liable, including, if it goes over a clear line in the sand,...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    I was going to respond that my favorite, when I was around 12, was the baluchotherium... but a princess riding an elasmotherium... Sorry, I see someone in opera-style valkyrie clothes... it's a WABBIT.......
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    I think I've said before: vaccine is "riiiight, one of these years". I want *effective* treatment....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Sorry, I'll take my old family practice (GP) in Chicago over any of your "primary care providers". Of, course, he started doctoring in the late eighties/early nineties, in the middle of the HIV epidemic.......

    No, the worker-student-academic alliance! (needs a bheer)....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    The few times I've most $10k or more, I never had to fill anything out. However, there's a 10 day, I think, period were you cannot access the money, while they investigate. Money laundering, y'know....

    Life and Death in the Great Depression - sounds like a lot of people were being worked to death, and in utter terror of losing their jobs....

    "Piers Crowman"? A search gives me some TX country singer, Mike "Crowman"......
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    The obvious answer is to make two kinds of money: plebian money, and Real People money. Give them all the Real People money. With them in a large valley, and the money dropped on top, by the ton. With pallets,...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    "Recently"? In 2000 or 2001 - I forget which year, my son was driving out car, coming back from the Chicago 'burbs, when the engine caught fire. My insurance company had to pay (car was too far gone by the...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Simple: ask him if he's prepared to pay 100% of all additional medical bills, and, if necessary, for any funerals resulting from his visit. For example, a nice coffin cost me about $1300 to effectively *RENT* in 1997 (my late...
