  • Commented on Upcoming travel
    Yes, that's groups as in classes of people. My sister-in-law was one of 8 Women Respond to Trump's Immigration Ban profiled by elle.com a couple weeks ago (hint: the one with the Scottish name). She has citizenship, but I doubt...
  • Commented on Upcoming travel
    think they gave her some kind of paper "pass" that you carry with your passport during your visit. Yeah, someone I know mentioned this a few days ago, said that they gave her a removable page for the passport,...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    Politeness doesn't correlate with firepower. Nope. And Fear doesn't equal Respect, but people who believe the above think it does. Meanwhile, just saw a report on surveillance cams in DC being hacked during the Inaugeration*. I'll admit to thinking, Thank...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    I was going to stay out of this, and I don't really believe this, but my two cents. WRT "TheSunx3": I sort of took it as a Beatles reference, Good Day Sunshine? "Sun, Sun, Sun, Here we come." Not a...

  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    (Thanks again for the history posts. Seriously fun.) What he said. I really need to read up on my ancestral history—both sides. I hadn't put it together that Hadrian had an impact on each. And, just added the Himmelfarb book...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Just read this article by Ron Rosenbaum Against Normalization: The Lesson of the "Munich Post" Inclues this tidbit: And in their biggest, most shamefully ignored scoop, on December 9, 1931, the paper found and published a Nazi party document planning...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    It's a topic that I'd suggest everyone step away from and remain somewhat polite about, the fallout could get genuinely nasty. Agreed. I'd never say anything about the kid, or even his mother. But the father... I'm simply wondering about...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    It's a shame there isn't more about the psychological effects, and it's an example of him putting his vanity over other things....
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    This could explain a lot: Potential side effects of the drug Trump reportedly takes for hair loss The constellation of potential symptoms, sometimes referred to as post-finasteride syndrome, may include sexual, physical and psychological changes. Of these, the sexual side...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Okay, thought that was a possibility, wasn't obvious. Forget it Jake, it's the internet....
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Normally I don't bother replying to a comment if too many new ones have been posted. In this case there were 50 before I saw it and wasn't going to bother, now it's more than 100, and it's still bugging...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Oh, and that means a big blandification of cuisine, nothing but Good Ol' Fashioned American Food, meat and potatoes for everyone. None of that fancy foreign food. And as for them hippie vegetarians.......
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Stopping all food exports Of course, in the US we import a lot of food, and we can expect everything from South of the Border to get more expensive, or not available, once The Wall goes up. So, perhaps a...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Well, closing the borders from refugees seems like a 'fine' start... Stopping all food exports, because "We have our own mouths to feed", along with pretty much all Humanitarian Aid are a couple more steps....
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    My take is that The Rump's chief advisor essentially has access to his own Intelligence apparat, and may end up on the NSC, bumping traditional members who have more business there. Why would he leave something so useful to him?...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    The third implication has to do with why Trump filed for his Presidential reelection campaign already; he doesn't want Cambridge Analytics to get hired out from under him You all didn't notice the mention that Bannon is on the company...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Also, stating the obvious, the longer this clown and his crew are running things, the more damage they'll do and the longer it'll take to fix—if possible. Let's hope the rest of GOP wake up soon enough to put a...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Shit's gettin' real, and personal. My sister-in-law was at the protests at JFK last night. AFAIK she' the only member of her family with US citizenship, her mother has a green card but travels back and forth a bit. I...
  • Commented on Theme, Fiction, and Empire Games
    I've looked at several obits for John Hurt, seems about half don't mention him playing Winston Smith—too close to home, or more likely there're too many roles to mention. There goes my other choice to play Angleton....
  • Commented on Empire Games
    Still haven't had a chance to get started on the book. Just read the Big Idea post on Scalzi's blog. "given perfect foreknowledge of the next sixty years of technological development, a government on an emergency footing, and a budget,...
  • Commented on Theme, Fiction, and Empire Games
    Sorry, last thing. Honest. Then I'm done. Personally I abhor violence, but I'm not a pacifist. Sometimes asses need to be kicked, and if someone hits me I'll hit back. Though first I'll work to see that the situation doesn't...
  • Commented on Theme, Fiction, and Empire Games
    Okay, I apologize for the last bit in Third. This sort of thing pisses me off, can you tell?...

  • Commented on Theme, Fiction, and Empire Games
    First off, I'm not talking about 'Political Opponents', I'm talking about people who think I should be murdered for being a Jew. We had a rather Big War to kill these Nazis, and people are whining about some asshole getting...
  • Commented on Theme, Fiction, and Empire Games
    I've worked with people with tattoos on their wrists or who were sole survivors of their families Now that we're losing the last of the Survivors, I occasionally point out to others that those "Old folks with numbers on their...
  • Commented on Theme, Fiction, and Empire Games
    I like the story that last year during the Democrat's sit-in in the House, the Republicans sent security to confiscate their phones so they couldn't live-stream from the House floor—Duckworth supposedly hid her phone in one of her prosthetics. Oh,...
