    Dude, if your wife / baby mama isn't working a job that produces steady income, it's time to make that happen.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Auto Lending: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

    That hilarious episode about how the Clinton Foundation was really the State Department for sale to the highest bidder is coming any day now...

    This is the kind of hard hitting research we've been missing out on this past year!

    Man, I really thought it was -stein at the end.

    Here's a write-up that examines the issues that RRP raises:

    IN RESPONSE TO: Asian Preggers Scam

    My father-in-law in NJ works with an Chinese guy whose family did exactly this. It isn't some urban legend. The only question is how widespread is the scam and how much is it draining? I'd guess billions, but who knows.

    Six replies in a political thread and I agree with all six! What is happening to this site?

    IN RESPONSE TO: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Campaign Songs (HBO)

    Biv- thanks for the link, I read the article with great interest. For years I've been bothered by the lack of balance in political satire. I always chalked it up to the inherent vulnerability of stodgy institutions. This quote from the article rang true:

    One of the reasons she posits for a lack of conservative satire is that the genre has always been aimed at taking down the powerful, from the Revolutionary War through Vietnam and 9/11. “Conservatism supports institutions and satire aims to knock these institutions down a peg,” she wrote.

    As for Oliver, I'm pretty unimpressed with his show. I watched his segment on Brexit, and it was quite long on rhetoric and thin on fact. I got a few chuckles, but the humor is tempered by my knowledge that the public opinion is swayed by this kind of show.

    I'm looking forward to Oliver's in depth piece on the Clinton Foundation. I'm sure that's in the works, right?

    IN RESPONSE TO: Pokemon GO (Pick Team Blue)

    A couple weeks back I had the same thought RE: whither RRP? Even the hardest of hardcore true believers must get tired of having 100% of their posts laughed at. As such, I imagine RRP has gone to a more favorable forum and is now in casual lurker mode here are EN.com.

    Biv- I don't see RRP being a fan of either of the major candidates, though I bet he'd go Trump if put to the test.

    Really great guitar playing, but the homeless bit was a pure contrivance to encourage the video to go viral.

    Biv- A couple problems with that Dilbert blog link:

    1. His idea of an 8 judge Supreme Court split along ideological lines is absurd on a number of levels. Ideology changes over time, so today's so-called "Conservative" and "Liberal" split is merely a matter of perspective (subject to shifting). Then there is the obvious problem of trying to implement this system, since there is no provision for it in the Constitution. I dunno, he started with a strong premise (credibility) but lost me on this paragraph. It was kind of an aside for him, but he devoted a good chunk of his posting to it.

    2. His conclusion that indicting Clinton necessarily would usher in a Trump presidency is flawed. I think, more than likely, it would have brought about a Biden presidency. I never thought I would have said this 8 or even 4 years ago, but Biden is preferable to either of the mainstream choices before us now.

    3. Not related to the Dilbert guy's post: I've seen some Democratic spinmeisters trying to claim that if you attack the FBI's conclusion then you are spitting in the face of law enforcement, and by extension you do not believe in the rule of law. I wonder if these people are so skilled at lying and obfuscating, that they actually believe their own bullshit?

    IN RESPONSE TO: Woman Facebook live-streams her dying boyfriend seconds after he is shot four times by a cop

    Biv - I never got back to you on all the issues you brought up in the last thread. Frankly, when I considered the volume of typing I needed to do in order to adequately respond, I gave up before starting.

    As for the MN shooting, even if this was a completely justified use of force, I agree totally with your 1st and 3rd points. There's really nothing else to add to your comment.

    Based on the information so far, I am leaning toward agreeing with your 5th point as well. I highly doubt the officer woke up in the morning and decided to assassinate a citizen. It will be a question of the totality of circumstances that led the officer to pulling the trigger. I hope there was either a dashcam or a bodycam recording showing the entirety of the incident. Let the chips fall as they may based on the investigation.

    As an aside, that MN governor likes to pour gasoline on the fire. His comment about racism was totally inappropriate. It seemed like pandering of the worst sort.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Wow Hillary Escapes

    I've been talking about Nixon a lot lately, Meorah. When compared to Clinton and her email scandal, Nixon seems like an honorable man and Watergate seems quaint and inconsequential. Given the exact same set of circumstances that Nixon faced, would Clinton have left office?

    "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State." -Joseph Goebbels

    Sorry to say it, but you set a pretty low threshold for fame. Light blue shirt with the fist pump?

    IN RESPONSE TO: Sunday Random News


    Yup, the town settled. The officers were totally over the top. Bad apples. This is a pretty old story, really. Happened in 2012 and the settlement was reached in 2015.


    I prefer to see this response by police:


    These stories (none are duplicates) don't even make it past the 1st page of Google results for "police deliver baby in car". There are way more good cops out there than bad cops.

    Posted: July 3rd, 2016 @ 8:25PM

    I'm very pleased with the result. I've grown very wary of globalism the last few years.

    Conceptually, this is a big win for sovereignty and national identity. It remains to be seen what the actual mechanics of withdrawal look like. I've read more than a few articles that say Brexit is largely symbolic and will have minimal real world impact. However, I generally distrust the agenda of the media. Those articles could very well have been designed to dampen enthusiasm among the Leave voters.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Thursday Random News

    I hope the officers file civil cases against the state's prosecutor, Marilyn Mosby. That crooked and incompetent idiot held these officers out as human sacrifices to a lynch mob.

    IN RESPONSE TO: The Jerks at UCI

    If what the article reports is true, then this is an absolute disgrace. I hope UCI is ready for the lawsuit and subpoenas for records. I wonder if any other groups--groups more favorable to the administration's world view--hosted similar events and neglected to provide the required documents? This sounds completely trumped up.

    As an aside, I wonder if the ACLU will step up and assist these young Republicans with securing their right to assemble and promote free speech? Since UCI is a quasi-governmental agency, I should think the First Amendment applies here.

    Maybe Oliver will someday put his energies into debunking the bullshit "1 in 4 women are the victims of sexual assault" lie.

    I love the term "Gordie Howe Hat Trick." A goal, an assist, and a fight in the same game.
