Re: Niccolo Soldo Interviews Glenn (GAY) Greenwald

Greenwald around the time of Snowden was presented pretty well and was reasonably coherent. Once he quit from the Intercept and no longer had editors editing him, the crazy came out in full force. A general inability to present arguments and apply consistent reasoning. Unless he went completely off ...

Re: Niccolo Soldo Interviews Glenn (GAY) Greenwald

Seeing Citizenfour Glenn Greenwald vs post-2018 Gleen Greenwald has been super jarring. He is the best example of "This is why editors are important" I've ever seen or heard of.

I asked a buddy who's a pulmonologist and has been treating COVID folks in and out of the ICU the last year. "it seems like it's probably a thing, but it's still way too early to really know anything with any reasonable certainty yet. There is talk of setting up specialty clinics for these pati...

Re: LEO Foot Chase Policies

It's not that hypothetical at this point. Newark has solved this problem. General American police culture is extremely anti-accountability and they play up the deadliness of a job that is safer than being a roofer and where most deaths are traffic-related. Large city cops and firefighters are extrem...

Re: Biden's America: rioting in Minnesota

Because if you did, or didn't just select the question I asked about what the riots served, you'd see that I noted that police reform was on the table, and the violence and destruction destroyed that opportunity. I saw it, it's just dumb concern trolling. I think if your mindset is: "I thought...

Re: Biden's America: rioting in Minnesota

What does this reaction serve? How does destroying a local community help either disadvantaged communities, or address the issue of poor training, poor screening, generally poor policy regarding police? I feel like the missing of the point here is willful. I don't think the Boston Tea Party was a p...

It is so, so strange to me this title and content.

My response would be, "MSP cop panics and kills another black man, after the last cop got off." How frequent do the bad shootings without consequences for the officer have to be to piss you off?

Re: Biden’s America: 200,000,000 vaccine shots in 100 days

Things might be changing. I signed up with the state early last week, got a notification on Sunday and got a vaccine today. State gave me a choice of vaccines and locations. I chose J&J and a local location— in a very blue area. Only side effects so far are mild muscle soreness and a tension he...

Re: The Sopranos

The biggest shock to me was finding later how young Gandolfini was during the series. He started that show in his 30s. When he died and the news said he was 51 I was sure that was off.

I rewateched it a couple years ago, it is really weird watching a show all at once that you followed through a period of younger years.

Something weird around here: I know 8-9 guys, myself included, whom have signed up for the vaccine and not been called the last 3 weeks. Meanwhile, they are basically out in the streets jabbing people. I don't know if your experience will be similar, but my industry happened to get put in 1B, so I ...

Re: Biden's America: Fuck Your Rights

Confiscating firearms from a potentially suicidal person is a good idea. Not my body, my choice? 72 hour psych holds are already a thing. As long as it's temporary, it's hard to argue someone's gun has more rights than the actual person. How do you determine "potentially suicidal"? Somebo...

Re: Biden's America: Fuck Your Rights

Confiscating firearms from a potentially suicidal person is a good idea. The GSW I treated back in the day would have been avoided if this was more easily done, since people were trying to get the guy help. Currently, and as your article points out, this is legal in many places, and I'm not aware of...
