Re: Affordable Housing

Recent graduates in Manhattan and San Francisco are not the real victims of the affordability crisis. It's fair to expect transplants to be able to afford to live in the place they're moving to, whatever it costs, and to not bother moving there if they can't. The real victims are the blue collar (of...

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All great points, the Chiefs totally didn't blow an immanently winnable playoff game for the nth time. Very sorry, I didn't mean to raise any hackles by suggesting that they could and should be going to the Super Bowl. You've been watching this team for a long time, so you know that it's no choke to...

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't disagree that the defense on this team is terrible, but I have a hard time pinning this on them (except for that egregious and inexcusable offsides) when this team was built all around offense and the defense did, all things considered, a pretty good job of keeping the game manageable while th...

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Third highest scoring team in NFL history gets shut out in the first half; incredibly dumb and pointless offsides penalty wipes out game-sealing interception; game-sealing interception was needed in the first place thanks to terrible clock management (3:32 left in the game and five timeouts between ...

Re: Politics

Not sure if PATCO 1981 is a super apt comparison given the unique context here though. Trump would find it politically more difficult to mass-fire federal employees who are striking because they're being forced to work without pay due to a government shutdown that a majority of Americans already bla...

Missouri governor wants repeal of new redistricting law When then-Missouri state Sen. Mike Parson didn’t agree with a voter-approved law imposing tough regulations on dog breeders, he led a legislative effort to repeal the measure and replace it with a tamer version. Now eight years later as govern...

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

Great, criticize it all you want. I don't even have a horse in this race, I'd probably err on the side of "if the community around the street wants to change its name then change it," but it ultimately doesn't make a difference to me. It was still a bad post. I restated it in starker terms than he p...

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

I wasn't responding to "everyone," I was responding to "can't we just give them a puzzle to distract them until this goes away?" by the dude whose only stated reason for opposition was not wanting to learn a new street name. It was a bad post.

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

It's pretty cool how the $1.5 billion deal Andrew Cuomo cut with Amazon that everybody hates and that he intends to circumvent the City Council to push through got announced a week after the election. The system works!

I think you’ve been going to too many communist reading groups or antifa protests. It’s time to get out into the real world. Claire McCaskill is probably right where America as a whole is on policy.

Hillary won five states by less than 5%, and only one (Nevada) didn't go for Bernie in the primary. Granted that the primary electorate isn't the same as the general electorate, but it does give you a sense of what kind of Democrats are in these Democratic states. I'm curious which specific states y...

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

Complaining about companies exploiting labor is way closer to what the book actually talks about than "desiring a govt to force social engineering conditions on capitalism."

And then, specifically, linking to it for sale on Amazon was a joke.
