Yes, respect for her work, and condolences to her family... But this is just about the worst thing that could have happened. You know the Republicans will not wait for the pending election. Oh no, when they are in power SCOTUS positions must be filled as quickly as possible. It's only when Democrats are in power that you must wait for a pending election.

No, WhoWeird left after getting too aggravated at the Trumper cult. He posted a flurry of angry messages on August 29th-30th and hasn't posted since. But it is interesting how someone always takes up the slack when someone else drops out of the resistance to the right-wing clique here. Quote You fucking idiots.

Many states prone to wildfires, including California, already have laws about keeping trees and vegetation a certain distance away from structures in areas where fires are likely. But how much space can you afford to mandate? When fires get huge the smoke, and embers, can drift for hundreds of yards. A really huge fire can alter weather enough to keep itself going, too. We're talking about hou

Arizona is mostly desert. Actual desert. They have a wet season every year, and lots of plants do bloom for a short while and drop seeds for next year. But they don't leap up in crazy piles of brush that then dries out and becomes tinder for the "fire season"... Even their forests are pretty sparse. Open stands of trees adapted to a dry climate, not like the forests of the north. Mos

Most people here are probably familiar with Joe Rogan since he often has guests like Graham Hancock, Rupert Sheldrake, and other 'alternative views' people. He is moving to Spotify in December and now there is an announcement at the end of his shows that there will be no other way to listen to his podcasts after December 1st except to subscribe to Spotify and use their app. Is this true?

Well, usually it is the rightists who cannot understand sarcasm. You did see the quotes around 'Libtard' since you copied them along with the word. And surely you have seen our rightist trolls using the world all the time here. Why couldn't you understand that my use of the term was ironic?

I'm not commenting on the fairness of the situation, just the reality. And anyway, the Senate is not meant to be representative of the population. It's the chamber of the state governments. (Which is why the 17th Amendment made no sense... it kicked a leg out from under the Federal government by changing the Senate to popular election.)

That's an interesting question. The only answers I think anyone could come up with would be some of the ethnic nationalists. "Nation of Islam" for Blacks or the "Aztlan" movement (literally "Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan" -- "The Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan") for Hispanics. They are pretty strident, and could certainly be called hate group

Despite the propagandists flooding this board, the sentiment of the population is running much more against Trump than the previous election. I forget now who said "They were both running against the only candidate they might conceivably defeat" in regards to the Clinton/Trump contest. Both terrible candidates. Even against such a corrosive public persona as Hilary Clinton, Trump won by

Yes, there are multiple similarities between Rome and Washington DC. One is deliberate, the Neo-classical architecture of so many government buildings. The proliferation of monuments to past leaders is another, but that's pretty much inevitable in a capital city. (Though The Apotheosis of George Washington in the Capital dome is a bit over the top...) Both cities are built in low-lying areas arou

Um, no, not 'dead wrong'. Only off slightly. It's still on the banks of the Potomac and prone to flooding when there is a rainy spring. And it's quite humid and uncomfortable even when it's not in danger of flooding. It wasn't a very good choice for an important thing like a capital city.

Because of this huge groundswell of insanity, many BBC shows have been focusing on conspiracy theories in general and QAnon in particular.

The city of Washington D.C is built in the swamp. It's physically a low-lying area along the Potomac river that had to be drained to make it possible to have the city there. So, calling DC "the swamp" is a double metaphor. It's associating the physical location of the city with the traditional image of a 'swamp' as a dank, over-grown place that isn't very hospitable to humans, and to th

District Attorneys let people go all the time. It's part of their job to decide when it is appropriate or worthwhile to prosecute someone, and when to save the courts from unnecessary backlog. Civil offenses like rioting are often particularly difficult to prosecute, so a large proportion of rioters who can't be documented to have destroyed property are generally "let go". WHERE is it d

A seriously in-depth series of articles/essays on QAnon and conspiracy thinking in general is appearing on Salon.com right now. Three so far, but there is no clear plan given for the series, so it could be ongoing for a while.

The closest thing he resembles is a mob boss. But that's not surprising. His father was known to cooperate with gangsters in the NYC area. He avoided having to pay extortion to the mob for his construction projects by accepting them as partners. So, that seems to have been the role model young Donald grew up with.

Please don't forget to note that the "insurrection" is by the Trump supporters. They are shooting people. There is no such organization as "Antifa". It's a name for anyone who thinks they fit into a vague category of anti-authoritarianism. Much like the hacker group "Anonynmous", anyone can claim to be "Antifa".

"He was trying to flee the scene during the shooting and defended himself when a molotov cocktail was thrown at him, he was beat with a skateboard, and someone pulled a gun." You don't get to claim self-defense when you start a confrontation and then have to resort to deadly force because you are losing. Prosecutors are smarter than that.

An interesting experiment... but it sounds like the consumers were not aged in the heat and sun along with the food stores. Imagine living on a sailing ship in that era. If you are not an officer, you spend the whole day on deck in the sun and (salty) sea spray, or climbing the rigging, which means getting waved around in the air as the ship rocks in the waves.
