  1. The new, principled James Clapper would never have gone along with # if he was still on the # payroll. Well, at least "not wittingly". https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jun/07/james-clapper-says-watergate-pales-in-comparison-with-trump-and-russia-scandal

  2. #: please vote. The # has a bizarre Berlusconi/Frank Spencer hybrid. # has a queue of lobotomised nonentities waiting to be promoted then stabbed in the back a few months later. We need some hope! Hope wearing a cardigan, cycle clips and a row of pens in the breast pocket!

  3. Churchill looks like a bank manager, Stalin looks like Major Bloodnock, while FDR is elegantly lean and rocking a f***ing _cape_! The # used to know how to do presidents. http://ur1.ca/qywgx

  4. # is the year of watching # officials squirm. As the old # idiom goes, you wouldn't be dead for quids. Pass the popcorn. http://ur1.ca/qy0sy

  5. It's sad that the non-#AU-#NZ world lacks the # cultural reference. Particularly when the # drops "the nuclear bomb you drop when you're not dropping a nuclear bomb". http://ur1.ca/qr70e http://ur1.ca/qr70f

  6. @strypey Yes, but optimising the software for corporate use means de-optimising for other uses. In Evan's defense, apparently there's something about # corporate law that makes an IPO practically compulsory at a certain point. Then you're on the road to ruin.

  7. #: "Ivanka # to be assistant to # president" What the…? I don't even… http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39438769

  8. @strypey The # showered Marshall Plan $ on post-war Europe because they knew the $ would come home. It was more an indirect domestic industry subsidy than foreign aid.

  9. @strypey During WWI IWW members in #, # and elsewhere were rounded up and imprisoned (or worse) in large numbers. If the NSA has Facebook's data on members & sympathisers of activist groups, why wouldn't it be used in some future process of "extreme vetting"?

  10. I have to keep reminding myself that I live in a civilised country, so Thad and Maude's enthusiastic endorsement of discount meds is not relevant. # #

  12. A couple of weeks ago it was pepper spray and attack dogs. Now tear gas, rubber bullets and fire hoses. Bull Connor lives. #'s benign hopey-changey # at its best. http://ur1.ca/q3h6y

  16. 3% of the # population owns half the guns. Can't we put them all in a stadium and say "One of you can leave. Sort it out yourselves."? https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/sep/19/us-gun-ownership-survey

  17. @strypey I was 99% #, 97% # The two are not alike enough for this to be a reasonable result. The questions are skewed to weird # obsessions (guns, abortion) and in some instances are entirely misconceived (fed spending is not constrained by tax "revenue").

  18. @kat She seems fine, but without preferential voting in the # (as we have in #) a vote can't "degrade gracefully", as we say in web development, to the least-worst candidate from the duopoly. So she's a symbolic protest vote in safe districts & not an option in marginal ones.

  20. @lnxw48 You can't safely shrink a large financial bubble without government spending to fill the gap in demand. In the # and #, not going to happen (might have been possible under President #).
