  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Elderly Cynic @ 393: Oh, PLEASE, let Nauseating Nige be extradited and be forced into a humiliating plea bargain! Only if y'all will agree to take Cheato-lini iL Douchebag in exchange, lock him away in some deep, dark dungeon and...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    whitroth @ 385: Deport him off the freakin' planet, and I ain't exactly picky as to how, or in how many pieces. Ironically, his grandparents were illegal immigrants to the US, and his grandfather was deported from Germany as a...

    Greg Tingey @ 374: Interesting to see that I have come to the same tentative conclusion as P Watts - that the US will go to civil war during/in the wake of DT. Whilst California burns, at least partly because...

    _Moz_ @ 338: You lot are awful, all these books you remind me of that my local library doesn't have so I end up biking several kilometres to another branch to get the book. Just FYI, I don't need more...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Trottelreiner @ 336: Problem is he's still hasn't done anything THAT bad, hell, the execution scene at the beginning is horrific, but then, the guy is described as a Da'esh sympathizer. But, IS HE? Or is Mr Kadir just someone...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Troutwaxer @ 334: I'd have to disagree. By 1980 or so much of the prejudice was dissipating, and things were definitely looking better. The older people who had planned the resistance to Brown V. Board of Education were rapidly aging...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    RonaldP @ 327: I'm reading some real moder horror, "Adults in the Room: My Battle with the European and American Deep Establishment" by Yanis Varoufakis ... I've been working on that one for a couple of months now. It's a...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Greg Tingey @ 320: So the 4-year contdown to the next Civil War in the US starts when the Trump/Kavanugh court re-defines citizenship in the US - right? Wrong. There is no 4-year countdown. The "next Civil War" started in...

    Greg Tingey @ 309: JBS You say worse ... in what way, please? Dred Scott was before the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments were ratified extending citizenship rights to ALL who are born here, no matter what the color of...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Greg Tingey @ 304: In other words, they are going to declare the rigged vote legal & then hope that Brett K will do as he is required to do for the Rethuglicans ... This is getting as bad as...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    JamesPadraicR @ 300: Meanwhile, yesterday in Colorado it was announced that future driver’s licenses will have a new option under gender. People who do not identify as either of the traditional options can pick X rather than M or F....
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Greg Tingey @ 297: Is the Georgia election yet settled? AIUI there is much questioning of the legality of the vote .... The last information I have (before I went to bed this morning) is that Georgia's Republican "Secretary of...

    Ioan @ 291: I have a question for those of you who are complaining about the results of the midterms: what exactly were you expecting to happen? The consensus before the midterms was that Dems would take the House while...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    JamesPadraicR @ 289: I’d say that’s when it became more solidified, but it started with FDR and the New Deal, and Southern Democrats objecting to the ‘Socialism’ of it. They split themselves off - see Dixiecrats, until the late 60s...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Greg Tingey @ 274: No, it's MUICH WORSE than that ... The outer reaches of the US Repubs are openly fascist-to Nazi. They have candidates/congresscriiters who would be in secure mental institutions in Britain ... And christrofascists as well .......
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Troutwaxer @ 272: I think Nunez is in the House, so the Democrats will have every advantage over him. I don't know if they can run him off the committee, but they can definitely make sure he is the least...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    David L @ 266: A key point here. GM did not spring up from the R's. It has been in force for decades (centuries) in the US. Mostly by the D's. It's just that when the R's took control of...

    paws4thot @ 214: Also copying from Wikipedia "a fuse is an electrical safety device that operates to provide overcurrent protection of an electrical circuit. Its essential component is a metal wire or strip that melts when too much current flows...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Charlie Stross @ 212: The USPS had a somewhat different raison d'etre (how to bind twelve colonies scattered across a continental seaboard into a single nation) but it was also in the opening-your-letters-and-reading-them-in-search-of-blasphemy business, as witness the work of Postmaster...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Troutwaxer @ 211: The Firefox extension I was using to block annoying comments is no longer updating. Does anyone know if there is another extension available for plonking those who deserve it? Blog Comment Killfile was mentioned earlier when I...

    whitroth @ 188: A tad confused here: the Great Game is, to me, the one played by the UK, and France, and Germany, and Russia....https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Game Governments may have come and gone; India & Pakistan gained independence; some new players have...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    whitroth @ 186: The Malignant Carcinoma, if we don't take back at least the House? And de-gerrymander for 2020? Horrid thought. Listening to NPR on my home from voting this morning, one of the election day stories said North Carolina...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Wulf @ 171: Sorry, Charlie: But I'm getting more confused with what seem to me to be accumulating loose ends in your series. The biggest question I'm puzzling over is why the Black Chamber was encouraging Reverend Schiller to release...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Bellinghman @ 167: & 169: In cities, that is. That and the big external water tanks. Rural electricity poles are another matter: they're not worth trying to bury. I think the "big external" tanks are to supply water pressure. Takes...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    paws4thot @ 165: The scenario you describe would require the existence of the relevant hardware, in particular the pole-mounted breakers. I believe the industry term is "fuse cutout". That would cover not only pole mounted ones like they have where...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    douglas clark @ 140: Set in the (then) future, humans had taken to living in rooms, all alone, never going out, and doing everything by “computer”, including having food delivered by machine. They had lost the use of their legs....
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    bsmithwins @ 128: It depends what's meant by 'a safety'. The P226 (and the whole series) have an internal safety that prevents the firing pin from moving forward to hit the primer of the cartridge and the sear blocks the...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    bsmithwins @ 114: Technical nit picking from a gun nut: It’s established early on the Sam’s duty pistol is a P226. In chapter 8 (A Game of Vampires) he’s “holding his gun muzzle-down and safety off”. The Sig P226 doesn’t...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Greg Tingey @ 107: Like so-called "smart" electricty-&-gas meters, which are being foisted on the Brit public. Not having one at any price .... What exactly does the "smart" meter do other than the utility not having someone walking meter...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    JamesPadraicR @ 49: Franconia has a Metro station now? Okay, it’s been more than 30 years since I lived in the DC area, and they were still working on the Forest Glen station in MD when we moved from there...
