Not really. It was originally invented to circumvent law and government, so it's been associated with all sorts of crime since the very earliest days. What's new is that it is emerging into mainstream finance now. I would expect the mainstreaming to continue. Increasing regulation is very likely, though.

Which is another way of saying they are now the majority. After decades of dogwhistle appeals to racism and winking at loony conspiracy theories like the Clinton Body Count, the QOP has been eaten alive by its own creations. Mitch McConnell will be wishing he had voted to convict Il Dufus by the next election cycle...

It really is astonishing how deep the grip of Il Dufus has become on the party in four years. Around three quarters of Republican voters believe what he has been spouting about widespread election fraud being the only reason Biden won, despite the inability of numerous Republican election officials to produce any evidence of it. And even the party establishment has been subverted. Remember, Linds

Looks like a graduate of the Trump school of social and political science, and a graduate of the Trump elementary school of illiteracy. I count five obvious spelling/grammatical errors, in a tweet. But at least he suffered some consequences. The Covfefe guy just kept on tweeting until the Twitter service itself realized he was a danger to the public and cut him off.

Quote Trump just declared war on Mitch McConnell and I’m literally laughing my ass off. McConnell was just re-elected in this same cycle where Trump lost. He's got 6 years of security while he plays the long game for control of the party. Trump is not going to get anywhere threatening him. And even other Senators who do not support him, like Ben Sasse, are not likely to be seriously threatened

They've got the same sort of nationalist fever in China as in most of the rest of the world. It then follows that conspiracy theories suitable to the Chinese mindset would start to spread in China as they do in every other country with this ideological virus. China thinks of itself as the source of civilization. It largely was for eastern Asia. But eastern Asia is not the entire world.

Yeah, the Capital riot/insurrection was ANTIFA, because ... well, obviously only ANTIFA would want to prevent the election of the 'radical leftist puppet' Joe Biden. Yeah, that's it. And the failure of state of Texas energy infrastructure has got to be due to a 'radical leftist' legislative package at the Federal level that hasn't even come to the floor yet.

Well, that is relevant for people acting in good faith. What I was trying to highlight is the contrast between the bureaucrats we've been told for hate for decades now and the 'conservatives' from outside government who we've seen trying to break things almost for the sake of breaking them. Simply not kicking over the traces in defiance of tradition/convention/experience for the sake of being 'bo

Quote For interest. I would love to know how an Aftershock happens after 10 years. It just may be a technical term which I am not aware of. A very interesting question. Stated more broadly: Since tremors occur along any given fault line for millions of years, how could there be any earthquake that is NOT an aftershock? Apparently the transition from aftershock to new earthquake cluster is

Yes, it's easy to find people now. That in itself is part of the problem. Researchers used to have to physically visit repositories of records, whether those were libraries, court houses, newspaper archives, or other such places full of physical paper. And sometimes you had to provide justification to the custodians of the records for the right to search. And then had to physically dig through th

Since I didn't see Mitch McConnell in the list of Republicans who voted guilty, I'm curious if he explained in his speech why he didn't vote to convict? Is he really stupid enough to stand on the whiny claim that Trump was already out of office and removal is all impeachment is for? That clearly cannot be the case since misconduct -- "high crimes and misdemeanors" -- can be committed ri

The chaos over vaccine distribution is scary when you are on the margins, not old enough or having an 'underlying condition' to qualify for the first wave, but not very young anymore. The effects of covid are so widely variable that there is no way to know how it will affect anyone. It's frankly amazing that anyone would sell their appointment. If this person was old enough to legitimately qualif

Well, it did escalate to a sharp but short crisis after the Languages Act had passed but not really been fully implemented. But these 'radicals' were a very small number of people. The broader population of Canada was adjusting to the new reality, and that's the important thing. It could well have become an ongoing problem, similar to Northern Ireland, if not for the decisive action by the Nation

As it ramps up, though, expectations ramp up as well. Around here we're seeing batches of hundreds of appointments taken within minutes of being made available. It's going to be interesting when I become technically eligible to see if I can actually get a vaccine.

Quote Like they say, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, and the evidence that it is genuine seems to be lacking. I don't think the argument that "it couldn't have been created with the technology available in the 1300s, so it must be genuine" is that compelling. That's wrong anyway.

Fox has paid some fairly large financial penalties already for inattention to sexual harassment. Bill O'Reilly paid something like 40 million dollars total before he was shuffled off on 'vacation'?

I've heard that 'other ingredients' than the actual immune-provoking agent are added to some vaccines because they enhance the immune response. Do you know what exactly is in the the two currently used vaccines? Have whatever adjuvants they may be using been used in many other vaccines? Is it common for the adjuvant to cause more trouble than the 'foreign' substance being immunized against?
