  1. I really liked Promising Young Woman. Wife did too. Definitely worth the $20.
  2. Was just thinking about this yesterday! I knew there had been FBG tournaments in the past, but haven't participated. Starting to take it seriously again after being inspired by Queen's Gambit. I'm in, username BruinsMurph (Also play on Lichess as Murph119 if anyone wants a game there)
  3. I thought this article in Politico was pretty good: How the Senate Could Speed Up the Impeachment Trial A long trial could really hurt Biden in terms of getting things done.
  4. No offense taken. Never stop bringing the jokes.
  5. All good. Just don't think it's a worthwhile conversation.
  6. You know what, I don't want to re-hash the 90s either. I'm just having a ####ty day and am extraordinarily pessimistic about our future. I'll delete my posts and show myself out if it will make everyone feel better.
  7. Voted No to all. I am most confident my Snowden vote. I am least confident in my Trump vote.
  8. Anna Khachiyan and Red Scare Podcast accounts were suspended.
  9. Montage was great. Not sure what climax you were looking for. It was a regular old episode, I cant think of a more fitting way for Alex's tenure to come to a close.
  10. No. But William Henry Harrison will be rolling over in his grave. He earned the shortest presidency distinction.
  11. This reminds a lot of what we used to hear from the Bush administration. But what if the terrorists get nukes!!!!!! Let's take a deep breath here. We need an inquiry into the failures of the Capital Police and possibly the FBI. We need to prosecute any rioters we can find to the fullest extent of the law. But let's stop it with the threat inflation. This is how civil liberties get curtailed, surveillance authority expanded, etc.
  12. He conceded so he could get his Twitter account back 
  13. Conversation I just had with my wife: Me: I could really use overtime...... oh yeah but this guy's terrible isn't he? Wife: Actually he's been amazing this year. Me: Told you so.
  14. Hedonic Treadmill As I've advanced in my career and made more money, I've found it more important to try to actively practice gratitude. Easier said than done sometimes, but it helps.
  15. Thank you. Tanden at OMB, Fudge at HUD, Rice on Domestic Policy, and now Pete at DOT make no sense whatsoever. But hey at least Vilsack has experience. Too bad nearly everyone agrees he did a terrible job in the last go around and he is particularly loathed by African-Americans in Georgia due to his handling of the Shirley Sherrod fiasco. But at least there's no important elections coming up there.
  16. Klobuchar sits on the committee that will confirm Buttigieg. O/U on number of staplers thrown?
  17. Andrew Yang lobbying Congress for direct cash payments to the American people.
  18. The 87-year-old former space security chief gave further descriptions about exactly what sort of agreements have been made between the aliens and the US, which ostensibly have been made because they wish to research and understand "the fabric of the universe." This cooperation includes a secret underground base on Mars, where there are American and alien representatives. If true, this would coincide with US President Donald Trump's creation of the Space Force as the fifth branch of the US armed forces, though it is unclear how long this sort of relationship, if any, has been going on betw
  19. I agree with a lot of this. But to bring it back to what Joe's been harping on. The lack of a unifying fight also makes you more susceptible to the opponent's slogans. Being painted with the defund/woke/SJW brush works because Democrats can't articulate what they are for*. So it's easy to pin the worst of the extremists onto the party as a whole. *Whether it's because they don't actually stand for anything or because their messaging is bad is debatable. But the end result is the same.
  20. I don't know if "too shy" is the phrase I'd use. I think many Democratic politicians genuinely don't want to raise the minimum wage or expand Medicare. But I think we've kind of been talking in circles. Your original statement I responded to was: The democrats' problem here is that this country doesn't have many problems that are solved by sound byte length honest slogans. I disagree with that statement. But whether I'm right or wrong, the appetite to fight for these things (and to get the messaging right) does not seem to be there in the Democratic Party. What that bodes for their
  21. Your union can negotiate the greatest health coverage on earth but if you lose your job what good is it? As for minimum wage, Florida just went for Trump and passed a minimum wage increase. It's a popular policy. But of course if anyone can screw up selling it, it's the Democrats.
  22. $15/hour. Legalize Marijuana. Expand Medicare. All of these are concrete policies that will actually help regular people and can be reduced a sound byte. All of these positions are more popular than the Democratic Party overall. Make them happen and maybe you can build a coalition to do even bigger things.
  23. If you can't articulate what you're for, your opponent will (truthfully or otherwise).
