She won. She will now sport a lucrative career as a public... whatever. The narrative has been formed. Political Correctness has no room for objective truth. Just like the crumbling of lies surrounding the Rolling Stone/UVA 'rape', we shouldn't be looking at facts and events. Brianna's feels are more important.

Once again, the most dangerous group to women is formed of other women.

They establishment Republicans have already rolled over with the passing of Cromnibus. I expect that if the push Jeb Bush to the front there will be record apathy among conservatives in the 2016 election.

To amplify on that point, never underestimate the ability of the Republican Party to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. :-P

the composition and political thrust of the parties changed dramatically with the Republican southern strategy of the 60s

Let me put you some f'in knowledge.

And more.

And even more.

On top of that, how do you explain the Democrats' only really starting to lose their stranglehold on southern-state governorships and legislatures in the '90s and later?

No. The "warmth" he's referring to had more to do with the way a needle tracked the groove, the way a tube amp interacts with the speakers (damping and harmonics), and the way a guitar amp that uses tubes rolls off instead of clipping. All is not a bed of roses in analog land... Us old guys grew up with this stuff and remember it as "the way music is supposed to sound". Digital's not the panacea it's made out to be either... overcompression, lossy recordings and poor reproduction from most modern releases leaves something to be desired. You young guys have been trained to ignore all the high frequency digital artifacts that bug the crap out of some of us.

What if I want my server in a different room from my router?

Minimal solution: run a cable between rooms.

Better solution: put in structured wiring and use that to make the connection between rooms.

Best solution: buy a home where the builder put in structured wiring, and use it. :-)
