  1. NRA versus Gun Control

    Yeah, killing 10 kids before needing to load another clip is plenty really. I hate to say I told you so: But: "David Hogg, a Parkland survivor who has since become an activist for the #NeverAgain movement supporting gun control, described his high school as 'like a prison'" https://digbysblog.blogspot.co.uk/2018/03/turning-country-into-armed-camp.html Also, too: "The goal, then, isn't to protect children, but to see if any solution to the problem of mass shootings at schools exists which won't require conservatives to give an inch to gun control proponents." (ibid) Er, at a guess, people started using rifles to kill children in schools. Given that, maybe it's just me, but I don't think teaching children in high school to manufacture rifles is a particularly good idea. As I say, maybe it's just me... I guess it depends on what you mean by taking a life. I'll leave it at that.

    There's a word for places like that. What is it? Gimme a sec. Oh yeah. Got it. They're called prisons.
  3. The Investigation in Trump's ties to Russia

    It's staggering that I feel the need to ask this question about the President Of The United States.
  4. The Investigation in Trump's ties to Russia

    Questions, questions. The White House is sticking to Trump's assertion that the women who have accused him of sexual assault are lying: https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/10/27/16561704/white-house-trump-sexual-harassment-liars Given that Trump has bragged about sexually assaulting women: Ibid Is it the case that all the women, and Trump, are lying i.e. Trump does not sexually assault women, or is it the case that all the women, and Trump, are telling the truth, and Trump does indeed sexually assault women?

    Indeed, I can't.

    Ah, the old ones. They're always the best.
  7. The Investigation in Trump's ties to Russia

    Sorry PD, the only thing Obama brought out while in the White House was, racism. Fixed your typo.

    50% of people on this planet are female. When he shows them some respect I may show some for him:
  9. The Investigation in Trump's ties to Russia

    Neither do I. I see him as stupid because, yannow, he's stupid. Trump today on Chinese president Xi Jinping: The stupid. It burns!
  10. The Investigation in Trump's ties to Russia

    Definition: Crass. Adjective. Very stupid and showing no sympathy or understanding. https://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/definition/english/crass Synonyms: stupid, insensitive, blundering, dense, thick, vacuous, mindless, witless, doltish, oafish, boorish, asinine, bovine, coarse, gross informal pig-ignorant https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/thesaurus/crass Me too. We really need a very stupid, mindless, witless, pig-ignorant dolt with his finger on the nuclear trigger. What could possibly go wrong?

    So if it came to nuclear war you'd be OK with it. Oh, my. Oh. My.

    Source: http://www.defenseone.com/threats/2017/10/exclusive-us-preparing-put-nuclear-bombers-back-24-hour-alert/141957/ I guess I should feel reassured that Air Force C-o-F Goldfein is ensuring that we're prepared going forward. I just wish I had a clue what it means. More worryingly, Goldfein continued: Shorter Goldfein: "We have to ensure we nuke the right people." Further Goldfein: Unlike Goldfein, I'm not an Air Force Chief of Staff, but conventional conflict with a nuclear element kinda looks like nuclear war to me but WTFDIK.
  14. Who caused the housing meltdown of 2008?

  15. Who caused the housing meltdown of 2008?

    I've never said they did. I've never blamed the victims. I've always blamed the bankers, insurance companies, mortgage lenders and credit ratings agencies. Who borrowed the money is neither here nor there. What matters is who lent it and why. The film Inside Job explains how tens of millions of people lost their savings, their jobs and their homes. It's a tale of greed, corruption and fraud. A tale of private jets and private elevators. A tale of strippers, hookers and drugs. A tale of the "systemic corruption of the US by the financial services industry and the consequences of that systemic corruption." A tale of bankers, insurance companies, mortgage lenders and credit ratings agencies in other words. You can watch it here: http://documentarylovers.com/film/inside-job/ Also, too, The Big Short is terrific: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_big_short/ From memory, and I've watched both films twice, neither even mentions house flippers as a cause of the crisis.
