  1. in other paradox news Imperator Rome is getting a complete overhaul with the next patch. New UI new game mechanics and it sounds like a lot of elements from crusader kings three are going to be introduced there. Also in stellaris we have a new DLC to look forward to. Well, you can count me in on both of them.
  2. Reading about the plot to kidnap the governor of Michigan. I really don’t understand what their endgame was. What did they hope to accomplish by all this? Any concessions they got would be fake. And it’s not like they’re going to get to walk away from that. Maybe that kind of thinking just defies rational reasoning. Maybe guys like that just do things to do them. Hey I am 100% forgiving your life for the cause if you believe in it. I have said in the past with great conviction that I would defend my home and my property to my very last bullet. But this one doesn’t make a whole lot of
  3. Still working from home. State offices have not reopened yet. And as I posted earlier my home office never will reopen. What that means for me remains to be seen. Right now the theory is we continue with virtual offices with physical facilities for our district in Memphis when needed. That would not be so bad. You have to give corona credit for one thing. It has moved the Internet in the direction of realizing it’s true potential. meanwhile in a totally non-technology related direction I’ve been looking at a method to start a fish farm on my property. It would be easy if I could redirect
  4. While we’re at it we can make the citizens pay to use public toilets to. Another Roman innovation.
  5. US to impose tariffs on $1.96B worth of aluminum sheet goods Hmmm…. I don't recall Congress taking this up. What was that you said? They didn't? Really? But how could that be? I seem to recall in the US Constitution Article I Section 8: It's the FIRST GODDAMNED SENTENCE! THIS is why the country is f---d. This in not Trump. They should have put a stop to this s--t with Wilson. Trump is just the latest in a long line. Sometimes I think we'd be better off abolishing the Executive Branch.
  6. The red lights are flashing in the ****pit. But there is no pilot: https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/08/economy/deficit-debt-pandemic-cbo/index.html Guys, I want to stress to you that there is nothing that can be done about this. No possible outcomes of the 2020 election will help. To fix this problem the US Government must freeze spending for at least five years. No extra spending, no pay raises for SSN or folks who work for the govt. A real freeze. In five years (give or take) normal economic growth will make this manageable again. Don't think taxing will help. According to Kiplinger the
  7. The political spectrum is not a line. It’s more like a horseshoe. The two extremes are closer to each other then either is to the mean.
  8. I am very glad Reagan and Goldwater are not around to see what has become of the republican partyI am very glad Reagan and Goldwater are not around to see what has become of the republican party
  9. You have had the worst luck lately! Feel better
  10. All this talk about who "won". The Rays won! They beat the Yankees 8-4 in Game 3. There was nothing else worth watching on.
  11. Well, religion is pretty much what anybody makes of it. But the point I was going for was the church experience not so much as the religious experience. Being taught from a young age that you are a part of a community and that everybody in the community is valuable cannot help but have a positive impact on people. There’s something to be said about small town and rural life. Entire generations of people grow up together. You know each other, you know each other‘s families, there are strong community bonds and churches are a big part of forming that. Here in Covington there is a church softball
  12. You know what? I'd be OK with this. State and local governments are far more persuadable and in tune with their constituent populations. Plus if you find your current resident State heavy handed and ornery then it's easy to move to a different one. There is no escaping Leviathan-On-The-Potomac. States already do a good job administering concealed carry permits (which is a privilege not a right). So getting the goddamned Federal government out of gun control and regulation and making it solely a state and local government issue is a win. As long as they are mindful of Scalia's caveat that prohi
  13. I'm curious. To what do you attribute that fact? I have an idea that may or may not be correct. In fact the actual reason for that fact may not be knowable. But what is your best guess at the reason this is so?
  14. We just figure it’s better to die on your feet than live on your knees
  15. https://www.yahoo.com/news/no-charges-filed-against-white-191229680.html Just the cost of doing business? All these calls to defund the police are misguided. Perhaps a better idea would be to disarm the police. Non lethal munitions and weapons only. It seems like cops are panicky, frightened, and undisciplined types whose first reaction in any situation is to shoot everyone in sight.
  16. US Federal Debt Tops $27T so which of the two candidates is promising to cut federal spending? That would be neither of them. Someone explain to me how important this election is again. Someone better wake up Honorius the Visigoths are at the wall
  17. The Michigan state Supreme Court has stripped the governor of her emergency powers. Of course in my opinion they should’ve done that right from the get go but better late than never.
  18. As someone who hopes for the health and happiness of all his fellow humans I hope they are all asymptomatic. I would not wish wet lung respitory distress on anyone.
  19. Covid is hardly a death sentence. It does have a survival rate north of 99%. Even though quite a few folks have died. But this will certainly sideline Trump and possibly Biden right in the middle of the campaign. That means the next two debates are likely a no-go. So Trump loses two opoprtunities to make an even bigger jackass of himself.
  20. I was wondering about that too.
