    Erich Zann has nothing on this old Black man. Maybe Mo should take up the guitar as a replacement instrument! You could just about read COVID news as a unicorn chaser for this one....

    Agreed completely, though I hope he'll pick Liz Warren!...

    It's a reference to the Watchman Comic books. The SQUID was a ruse meant to unite the world against an obvious external threat....

    Unfortunately, COVID-19 is a very credible SQUID....

    I think Bass is already out. She also said something very complimentary about the Church of Scientology. The ads just write themselves......

    An electric leaf blower? Do you mean a fan?...

    But the Sergeant does not traditionally use that authority. And I'd be thrilled if Nancy Pelosi would rebuild the jail in the basement of the Capitol...

    I think this is something the U.S. does a pretty good job on: We have something called a "Hate Crimes Law" which allows the state to add charges if someone commits a violent crime on the basis of some kind...

    Probably some different attractors for Democrats; Equality for all, a safer financial system, don't screw with Social Security....

    The office "Sergeant At Arms" of the House of Representatives is not an important law-enforcement position. It's far more ceremonial, much more along the lines of "Sergeant At Arms, are the chamber doors open and are all dressed in their...

    All you've done is demonstrated that Turner is sane. In the U.S. right now it's like running for Captain of the Titanic. It's either "I promise to build bulkheads around the engineering room as soon as I'm elected," or "What...

    I'm definitely in the anti-Kamala camp. She's got that "I'm a sociopath" vibe in a way that's obvious even without knowing her record, which is terrible. Susan Rice is what you'd expect of a former "National Security Advisor." My favorite...

    That's the one I keep seeing....

    Apart from getting on the warfarin Really Fast what steps can one take to resist or diminish hypercoagulation - just in case? I take an aspirin and a multivitamin (for D and zinc) every day. Hopefully the aspirin thins the...

    If you take what I wrote and apply it to what the Many Named One wrote, maybe you can make sense of it now. I'm not gonna....

    Note: Posting the above as a Jew - these tensions are one of the stupidest thing you can find in U.S. society, where both sides should be looking out for the real enemy!...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    Without reading the bird-lady's comments, I suspect she's pointing at the tensions between the Black and Jewish communities in the U.S., which have been an ongoing thing because some Black people and some Jewish people are idjits. On the Jewish...

    I wonder how I missed that one....

    IIRC, they're all paid and there aren't many of them....

    Like with any religion, there are a lot of sects, some much saner than the others - grouping all Libertarians together is like grouping all Christians together. Are we talking Grifting, Fundamentalist Prostetants, or Peace Churches with a history of...

    Part of the problem here is that Libertarianism has very much been captured by the right. Saying "I'm a libertarian" is the way a Republican lets you know that they're educated enough to read either Rand or Heinlein and discuss...

    That scenario is entirely artificial - the Knight may simply be using fancy language to make sure you know that knights and knaves are visually identical, or the Knave may be using fancy language to lie to us about the...

    "Near-infinite time wasting" is more a matter of self-discipline. Gnome-3 is so badly broken in terms of configurability that you have to allow the UI to dictate your workflow, which is my idea of hell. I'm not someone who tweaks...

    I probably should have said, "Infinitely configurable in terms of appearance." I'm sure there are things you can't do with the system, but those wouldn't be very sane... but just to give you an example, my desktop has an invisible...

    My dislike for Windoze10 is mainly because it was an unmitigated, worthless PIECE OF SHIT. That goes without saying. It's just appallingly bad....

    IIRC Volvo makes a decent wagon....

    I'm also a big fan of IceWM, but I stopped using it when they underwent a development hiatus a few years ago. These days I use XFCE, which is near-infinitely configurable and very pleasant to look at. I'd give the...

    I didn't find XP aesthetically horrible, it was just another variant of Windows. Seven was almost likeable, at least until it was time to upgrade MS Office. My comment about how nice it would be if Windows had a package...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    My dislike for Windows 10 is mainly aesthetic. Have you ever seen an uglier-looking window manager? Looking at it makes me want to go out and work in the yard or something......
