Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

This might get interesting. The treasonous president has decided to label the NYT treasonous, perhaps because they reported that US intelligence decided not to tell him what they were doing in Russia, on account that he would presumably just tell Putin.

Re: Random quotes

Not my field, but I thought that a lot of the action in this space had moved to FPGAs.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

While Trump routinely confesses to major crimes on national TV (because, like, who's going to do anything about it), here is the sort of behaviors he is enabling: https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/14/us/tennessee-preacher-cop-lgbtq/index.html Of course, you may find this to be OK, because it isn't going t...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

This is very short-sighted. What you failed to take into account is: how do you deter another Trump? Laws which are not being enforced start being ignored. Deter another Trump from what?  Obstruction of justice? Taking bribes from foreign governments. In the grand scheme of things, Trump’s corrupt ...

There is only one problem with the "silver bullet" resolution. It's called President Pence.

Re: We're all going on a summer holiday, the sequel

Emoluments, schemoluments... Obviously, he is on the take. And some interesting news today about the gross corruption of the dynamic duo of Mitch McConnell (Senate majority leader) and his wife Elaine Chao (Secretary of Transportation).

Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

Well, yes. It is pretty easy to forecast the path of the Johnson government. No deal Brexit, immediately followed by a constitutional crisis and PM Corbyn. Or a revocation of Article 50, immediately followed by PM Farage. I just occasionally visit, so could go either way, but I imagine I would have ...

Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

OK, we could turn this into a discussion of the FT's views of Brexit, which are well known (they are not in favor of it) and not particularly my goal. This was meant to be more about what it means to be a conservative (or, more like it, a Conservative). Is blasting your balls while trying merely to ...

Of course, with an IQ in the 80's, there may be extenuating circumstances.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

So, the bleeding orifice that is our president made this statement today:
 https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/12/politics ... index.htmlWe can only hope that he receives the punishment for the treason that he is inviting and committing, posthaste.

Re: Need Help: Vegetarian Recipes

Fantastic! Proud of you and happy for the tasters! :-) Raw veggies are a vitamin bomb - for healthy bones, teeth and mind! Not to mention home-made meals give extra powers for fighting monsters + perk "Daddy's girls!" in this case, to put it in the language of computer games :-) So, after a slight ...

Re: UK going to the dogs

That mirrors US sentiments, mutatis mutandis . In a Pew study from last year 77% of republicans and 35% of democrats were in favor of the death penalty for convicted murderers. Among evangelicals (aka Trump lovers) the numbers were 73% in favor vs 19% against because, you know, that's what Jesus wan...
