  1. I think the only thing you could say about Churchill in 1940 was that Chamberlain was worse.
  2. Yes, Jeff. You've said many things. You've even called yourself a liberal. But you have to admit, 4.5 years is pretty long winded.
  3. It's funny watching our resident Fakebertarian complain about a whistleblower who is trying to keep him alive by exposing govmint malfeasance. I guess Stites Rats do matter.
  4. Considering the size of the government budget, the size of the bribes in order to control it, positive control (spend this on the F35) and negative control (don't spend this on infrastructure), is nothing. How did we let this happen? Media. We conflate politics with entertainment. That's got worse with TV and the interweb. Dunno if there's a way out.
  5. Rebekah Jones, former Florida health department employee, gets whistleblower status https://www.wptv.com/coronavirus/rebekah-jones-former-florida-health-department-employee-gets-whistleblower-status This was actually 3 weeks ago. Hi Tom!
  6. Not a Barbara Lee fan at all and she is my Critter. She’s a grandstander but with no accomplishment. She’s never been a committee chair because she’s basically lazy, a time server. AOC she ain’t.
  7. That's already happened ... in Texas. Well, suspended at least. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/covid-vaccine-houston-methodist-hospital-system-employee-suspensions/
  8. This is about right. The right wing nutjobs haven't demonstrated any command of the ideas. Indeed, the Texas law doesn't even define what it is against. So, yeah, they're opposed to the idea of ideas. Also, statistics is taught at Oakland Tech. Sadly, it's that frequentist drivel because that's what the AP syllabus demands.
  9. Ethno-mathematics Reminds me of Michael Savage, née Michael Alan Weiner, who got his PhD from Berkeley in nutritional ethnomedicine. But seriously, ethno-mathematics sounds like a fine subject. You should start with the Egyptians. The Rhind papyrus dates to 17th century BCE. Maybe the House of Wisdom in Baghdad. The Chinese were also very big on math. The master race, the Germans? Well, they were kind of slow learners. Hard to do geometry and algebra in runes. But I think we can all agree that it would be a bad idea to teach Arab numerals.
  10. Jeffski, I'm sorry that your ladyparts are feeling a little scrunchy today. I did go through the first 10 or so on the GVA list and not even the majority were 'gang related'. Not even. You're welcome to look for yourself. https://www.gunviolencearchive.org/reports/mass-shooting Most of these shootings are just dumbfuck on dumbfuck violence, well except that one of the dumbfucks had a gun. https://www.gvpedia.org/gun-myths/gangs/
  11. Well, I dunno if directing insurrecters inside the Capitol while wearing a MAGA hat exactly qualifies under de-escalation.
  12. No, the Capitol Police don't work for Shitstain but the DC National Guard does. https://www.reuters.com/world/us/congresswoman-says-trump-administration-botched-capitol-riot-preparations-2021-05-12/
  13. The vast majority of plane drivers never commit a crime either. Nevertheless, plane drivers have to be licensed and insured.
  14. Jeffski, did they teach you the difference between states and counties in flight school? Did they tell you that sovereign sheriffs don’t get any electoral votes? I remember Hillary losing the election by -3M votes in 2016 and something about Vlad. But I don’t remember anything about counties.
  15. You know it's getting serious when RedState quotes Daddy Vladdy asking who ordered the assassination of Ashli Babbitt. https://redstate.com/shipwreckedcrew/2021/06/15/vladimir-putin-asks-nbc-news-who-ordered-the-assassination-of-ashli-babbitt-by-the-capitol-police-n396923
  16. Hey Buttplug, definitely fuck Ashli Babbitt. Sorry she got killed (no, not sorry) trying to overthrow an election that your boy Shitstain lost in November. In fact, your boy now admits that he lost it which make you a two time loser, loser.
  17. The Capitol Police Chief, the Senate and House Sergeant At Arms were all told to resign the next day. Four people died that day. Bobitt died from acute stupidity. Benjamin Philips and Kevin Greeson died from heart attacks. Rosanne Boyland, who wanted to be a sobriety counselor, died from amphetamine intoxication. The IG report said the police were told to hold back and not use their most aggressive tactics. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/13/us/politics/capitol-police-riot-report.html That said, you may be right about this being a good outcome. Indeed it may have been the best outcom
  18. That's what Orwell said in Homage to Catalonia. Orwell was in Spain to fight the Fascists but the Communists were in Spain to fight each other.
  19. Tourism. That's just a spelling mistake in a filing.
