"bit of land" = the displacement of hundreds of millions of people across the globe.

AKA your kids get to grow up in permanent refugee crisis world.

And you know what ? I am a fool to care about this, because I'll be dead before shit gets really real. Hope you leave your kids some money!

The only "tech" things I ever seem to use in a car are cruise control and the entertainment system. On a recent trip I had a rental car with all the in-car controls on a touch screen. I appreciated the convenience of being able to adjust the cruise control and climate control, play tunes, tune the radio and so on, all from a common interface. This is a car, dammit, not a mobile computer laboratory. Techie toys must do more than be cool. They must solve problems.

I'm reminded of airplane glass cockpits. Pilots rarely need exact numbers, most of the time they just need a glance at an analogue display. "Full power...confirmed! Gauges green...airspeed alive...rotate..."

Yeah, didn't the republicans win the house?

They held it, but lost eight seats. Not like the House has gotten much done under Boehner anyway.

And then two years later they got the senate too?

Yawn. Off year elections are almost useless for comparison to general election years.

There's a lot of morons out there.

Yup. Cuts both ways though.

Ted Cruz can still win.

As I've said before, show me an America that could elect a Canuck with a whiny voice and cultural tastes older than he is. I'll wait. Shit, they won't even elect Trump, and he's a hundred times the American that Ted is.

I will preface all this with an honest admission that this...scandal...could derail her chance at nomination. It could even, theoretically, leave a bad enough impression on a big enough chunk of the electorate to lose her the general that far. It might. Certainly a lot of man-hours and money will be spent trying, that's for sure. Though it is nice to see Republicans finally doing something about unemployment.

Remains to be disproven, though.

No, y'all are just still in the denial stage. Remember the polls in 2012? The ones that were ignored so badly that Karl Motherfucking Rove, of all people, was shocked?

Actually, there's that really great Christian parable about the dumbass who refuses aid 3 times then asks God why he wasn't there for him. Have a re-read, see if it sparks anything.


Oh dear. That means you're dumber than I thought. Nothing better than free money after all.

I think that the stock script was a 1992 replay.

It's that kind of hackneyed thinking that's making you losers.

You do know spending the last few years having your words fawned over by your cultish imbeciles isn't doing you any favours in the analysis department, right?

Which reminds me: What does Stacy pay you with, peanuts or promises?
