henry @ 35:14 Well, like they say, even a broken clock is right twice a day. Actually, "a snob bereft of elementary quality as a human being" is pretty mild criticism of Biden, when you really think about it.

You know, I am of the mind that the entire post high school university model is broken beyond redemption It absolutely is. The most important thing we could do as a society is DESTROY the terrible, harmful, financially ruinous idea that a four-year residential college immediately after high school is the desired path for everyone.

I am so very tired of the media finding Trump supporters who say they don't like his demeanor. Funny how the media never, ever, ever manages to find any stories about Dem candidate supporters who don't like their demeanor.

I don't want to sound like a Luddite, but white America tore black American culture apart. And we gave gave them nothing in return, other than a reliance on the state instead of their culture. NO. White progressive leftist democrats tore black American culture apart. And once they did that, they turned the same tactics on white middle class American culture.

Instead of race, isn’t this damning a welfare system that provides little incentive to work, a concentration of poverty without opportunity in urban ghettos, and the school systems they find there that have been pillaged of useful content? It SHOULD be. Of course, that's what the GOP should have been saying (really, shouting at the top of their lings) for the last four decades or so.

I'd call that quadrupling down on the stupid, henry. And this guy is supposedly a libertarian?
Good question, MM. My guess is that neither Gillibrand nor anyone who was responsible for the story realized they were wrong.
Also re: Gillibrand, in the article where she’s fully quoted, she refers to the “tenants of our faith”.
Gillibrand: Georgia's Heartbeat Abortion Law Is 'Against Christian Faith' So is participating in a violent, deranged and abusive sex cult, but she doesn’t seem to have a problem with that.
Meant to post this link yesterday - a ridiculous piece in the NYT by a former Major League Baseball player about “racism” https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/18/opinion/sunday/doug-glanville-cubs.html It goes well with anomom’s Scott Adams link and the idea that “facts don’t matter”
MM @ 6:53 That story is appalling but not surprising, sadly. I’m truly embarrassed by the people who run Arlington County.

And here is the headline of the day. I defy anyone to top this: Ex-baller Lamar Odom used a fake penis to pass Olympic drug test

Ig @ 11:48 "Shameful" is a good baseline description for Romney.

Fantastic Pieces, clarice! One note. You say: My practical view is that it is absurd to create well-endowed institutions of higher learning and fill them up with students unprepared by inherent capacity or education to benefit from them. You're assuming that the schools see their primary mission as actually providing the benefit of a good education to their students. That's clearly not true anymore, and hasn't been for a long time. Oh, and: The author of the adversity score nonsense was College Board president David Coleman, the architect of Common Core I think there's a good argument for Mr. Coleman to be tried for crimes against humanity, and that's not me being hyperbolic.

The interesting part is, allegedly, abortion rates have been dropping. Particularly among teenagers. I'd say "allegedly" is the key word here. At this point, I don't trust any of these statistics. Who is reporting? What is their methodology? Do they have an agenda? Do they control for bad data, or for respondents lying to them? How are they ensuring they get a truly representative sample of the populations they're describing?

my 2024 ticket (and if things keep up, 2020) is Cthulhu-Ronan Most Evil. Evil. I'd put Ronan first. At least he'd have a strong foreign policy.

If they are real they would be very useful. A cruise missile then can pulse microwaves over a 700 mile path frying electronics in its' range. Shocking? Anybody else heard of, or believe this? I'd like to believe that, if our military officials are talking openly about that, that we've got stuff far more powerful ready to go that they're NOT talking about.

How does The Omen know those numbers are legit? I doubt she knows that 1+1=2 without the aid of a calculator.

If the existing rules were violated, what is the point of making new rules? “We really mean it this time!” Or “We’ll add a rule that the current rules should be obeyed.” That's the overall Democrat approach to legislating.

Other than ginned up attacks on unsuspecting US citizens do these guys ever succeed? You know, when the adversary is another nation state How many people are dead at the hands of ferrorists that the FBI and other reds knew about but couldn’t be bothered to do anything about? Their track record at pre-dawn SWAT raids against nonviolent suspects accused of made up process crimes is pretty good, though.

Before Rove became a talking head it was easy to believe that he might actually know something. Then he started talking. Then again, the Dems have plenty of Bob Shrum's themselves, so I guess Campaign Manager must be an easy slot to land. Rove is like a coach who had one great season and got immediately bailed as a genius. Nobody really looked too closely at whether he really was one, or whether his great season was due to every bounce going his way, or the team having an easier schedule than usual that year or a couple of his players had anomalously great years, or what. He was just a genius, and other teams threw money st him well past the point of good sense, and everyone who declared him a genius made excuses for why his great success was never repeated.

"As the digital technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution continue to drive change throughout all sectors of the global economy, a unique moment exists to create a more inclusive, innovative and resilient society. Central to this change is the use of data. It is abundantly available but if improperly used will be the source of dangerous and unwelcome results." Am I a moron or a luddite if I think that Big Data is making everything in our society worse, rather than better?

No benefit has been shown over the "renewal" that was enacted Oh, there's a benefit. The renewal fees benefit the licensing board.

One of two things is happening - more people in California are becoming homeless or homeless people from elsewhere are moving to California in some sense thinking they will find a better environment there. I'd guess it's both things.
