Re: Politics

Mueller will get fired as soon as Trump realizes he can do it with impunity. For now he probably still has too many people whispering in his ear that if he fires Mueller it'll trigger impeachment but lol no it won't and sooner or later, he'll realize that.

Re: Politics

Looking back at it now, this is actually the post that stuck in my memory more than anything you said, mean I just think the specific comparison of "Obama is a Muslim" to "Trump was installed by the Russians" is a false equivalency. The topics are different, the goal is to use an item of moral or et...

Re: Politics

I didn't actually go back to look at the old posts so I don't really recall what the specific argument was, just that my side of it was that it was a false equivalency

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was also 29 years between any postseason appearance at all for the Royals, so the Dodgers have had it a little better on that front

Probably true -- they found severe CTE in Aaron Hernandez's brain (while offering the various disclaimers that CTE wasn't definitely the cause of his behavior, but....)

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

Oh absolutely, it's frustrating that football is entertaining to watch since literally everything about it -- the health ramifications for the players; the players' penchant for, and the league's readiness to look the other way on, domestic violence and other violent criminal behavior; Washington's ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I honestly think the LaGuardia Airport makeover is a huge waste a money. I know LGA is a dump but the thing that is most frustrating about LGA is the constant delays due to air traffic or minor weather issues and that is not going to be solved in a billion dollar makeover. Have to strongly disagree...

Re: Politics

You are super overthinking this if you've talked yourself into thinking there's a scenario in which impeachment is on the table and Dems don't vote for it. Whatever political advantage they have going into 2018 they owe to the fact that they are the opposition to Trump. If impeachment comes to the f...

Re: Politics

"All Lives Matter" is a racist movement not because the statement "all lives matter" isn't true on its face but because that's not what the movement actually stands for. I'm not taking about the ALM movement. I'm just saying BLM and the alt right don't seem to believe that all lives actually matter...

You know if you really think about it, people who think black people shouldn't be murdered and people who think black people should be murdered are actually just two sides of the same coin, right???

Re: We need a new airport!!!

That said, LaGuardia is one old airport and is about as or even more obsolete than KCI and probably should be replaced. Construction is already underway (which, incidentally, is leading to the real problems with getting in and out of LaGuardia -- not the security lines, which I always find pretty m...

Re: San Francisco Pictures

Incidentally, although it does take an hour, I've taken that Caltrain ride before and it's not too bad. But if I lived in Palo Alto it's probably long enough that I wouldn't regularly head into SF unless my job was there (in which case I wouldn't live in Palo Alto, so)
