Re: High Weirdness in the Himalayas

In high gdp countries, most people work off from the farm, they don't need the child labor, social safety nets mean you don't have to live with your kids, etc. Theories behind this include: People earning more have a higher opportunity cost if they focus on childbirth and parenting rather than their...

Gravel ride, 21 miles, 1800’ vertical. Temps in mid 40s, leaves changing. Nice!

Re: High Weirdness in the Himalayas

Spoken like a true rabbit, imagining quantity could ever be preferable to quality. I'm not here to churn out yeast.

Re: Joker

Always well written, Kaz. My advice is, for the sake of your physical well-being, DO NOT WATCH THE NEW WATCHMEN SERIES. Had to watch it after that. In the classroom there was a poster about the anatomy of squids, and the later the falling squids. Had to see the whole episode at that point. My wife ...

Re: What to make of the election?

Rep Matt Gaetz has stormed the SCIF with an unsecured phone and is tweeting. A few reasons why this is quite bad: https://twitter.com/MiekeEoyang/status/1187032800572125191 I call shenanigans. Is it really a SCIF if you can tweet over wireless from inside? It depends. We used to be able to bring in...

I've brought a phone into a SCIF before. It got the cybersecurity version of prison sex before I got it back. There's already a bunch of republicans in the SCIF anyway.

Re: What to make of the election?

* sigh * We didn't go into Syria to do regime change. The Syrians did that themselves, in a civil war that extended out from the Arab Spring, and were gassed by Assad for it. We've done a good job of not getting involved in that. We are in Syria because that is where ISIS was, and now soon to be "i...

Re: What to make of the election?

I'm talking about Clinton insinuating the Russians want Tulsi to run as a 3rd party candidate as some scheme to hurt the eventual Democratic nominee. That makes no sense to me because Tulsi would pull more of the independents that would ordinarily lean Trump but would jump at the opportunity to vot...

Re: What to make of the election?

I think Tulsi would probably pull more votes from the Republicans than the Democrats... No way Look who is giving this candidate with sub-single digits polling press time. That tells you everything you need to know. She has ZERO chance to win the Dem nomination. Along with Beto. Crabs in a bucket.

Re: What to make of the election?

So apparently anyone who doesn't toe the Clinton/DNC line is smeared as a Russian asset. Nothing like a cackling bitch who funneled millions of dollars from Russia into her family's "foundation" calling out someone else as a Russian puppet. The DNC is looking more like a shit show every day, and th...

How is Bolton involved? Fiona Hill, in her testimony, quoted Bolton as to how he would have no part of the Mulvaney/Perry/Sondland "drug deal", and notified the WH lawyers of the shady doings. To get in on record. Good news on the tax document front. Pro Publica got hold of some tax docs thanks to ...

Re: China is the Enemy

When you say things or do things, you’re doing it and know the things that can be affected by it and the families and individuals that can be affected by it. Sometimes it can be changed as well.
A Trumpian word salad.

Re: LGBTQXYZ Town Hall Crazy Train

We had leverage while we had a presence there, and could help shape the post-ISIS landscape. Instead we ran away, thanks to President Bonespurs. It’s probably impossible for Americans to fully grasp the sense of betrayal felt by the Syrian Kurds, who suffered 11,000 dead and 24,000 wounded in a war ...

Russia, Syria, Iran, and Turkey all just pwned us in Syria, and with ISIS running around the neighborhood again... Why did we ever bother in the first place? The losers are us and our allies, the Kurds. Trump is doing what Obama did. Leaving too soon, leaving a vacuum. We've seen this before, it was...

Re: LGBTQXYZ Town Hall Crazy Train

I'll give Trump points for be being out and proud with his hate and racist lies (Obama not US citizen, etc.). It was an oddly winning strategy with the right.

I am sure Trump's odd knee jerk retreat from Syria, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, will work out well for all of us.

From guns to religion to abortion to climate, his views exemplify most of the candidates woke essence. What he says is a better r...

Re: Still not going gently into that good night

17.5 mile gravel ride, 2400’ el gain, 1+30 time. Was going to do a 25 mile loop but ran out of time. Chilly temps in 50s. Sun going down. Nice!
