    US Politics: 40 Acres and Barack Obama

    Eh, I'd have to disagree for Sanders. His policies are fairly unworkable and have no chance of becoming law. Warren's probably don't either, but at least she has strongly studied the issues. Sanders, OTOH, is just an old man screaming at clouds.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Getting Sneaky

    Watched three movies this weekend. First up was Captain Marvel. I'm not a Marvel fan boy/girl, so I tend to take these movies for what they are. I thought the movie was okay, but largely forgettable. Second up was the big disappointment, Us. I expected so much from this film and it did not live up. Peele definitely took a big swing with this one, and while it was solid from a technical stand point, I found the plot to be kind of boring. Perhaps this was a good example of why we hate having movies spoiled (I usually don't, but a friend told me the twist in it a while back). And lastly, I checked out A Fistful of Dollars. It's not as good as some of Leone's other Westerns, but it's still a great movie. I highly recommend it.

    Women's World Cup 2019

    What was the second PK for? Anyways, a win is a win, but it doesn’t feel too good to only get by on penalties. Both France and the US seem shaky going into their match. That said, I think the winner of takes the tournament.

    Women's World Cup 2019

    I’m at work and can’t watch, but it sounds like the difference in the game is that our goalie made a horrifically bad play and basically gave them a goal.

    It’s not mean enough to just keep kids in cages, so now we’re denying them soap and toothbrushes. This is embarrassing. How the mighty have fallen….

    Oh yeah? Hold my beer. That’s what political prisons will look like in a hundred years. You’ll be uploaded into some nightmare scenario where you’ll die over and over and over again. We’ll call them Jacelands.
  8. I've never heard some refer to a bike as a "pedal cycle." Congratulations on being 800 years old.
  9. There's no need to be so absolutest about this. There are good and bad cops, just like there are good and bad teachers, lawyers, judges, businessmen etc. Is biking after drinking illegal in the U.K. like it is here? Because if so you did just self snitch on illegal activities being committed by a cop.

    Historically speaking, you're correct, but I just have a hard time seeing any type of shift occurring until a lot of people get old and die. This also opens up the philosophical conversation regarding will we retain the right to vote once we become cyborgs? We're in the theoretical age range for that to be a possibility, though I think both of our enjoyment of numerous vices might hinder our ability to make it there. Goes double for @Jace, Basilissa. Sorry @Ser Scot A Ellison, you're SOL.

    NBA Offseason: From KD to AD

    Sorry @Fragile Bird, but this just means two Canadians are doomed. Pray for them, and have all flagpoles readied to be lowered to half mast on a moment's notice.

    We're taking Canadian jobs?

    US Politics: 40 Acres and Barack Obama

    I'm not sure why you're so dismissive about this possibility. In 20 to 30 years, roughly 50% of the country will live in eight state, 30% will live in 35 states and 20% will live in seven states, assuming no territory receives statehood. There will be a lot of blue states in that 70%, but they'll just get 30 votes in the Senate. That 30% will be overwhelmingly red, and if 75% of them go red consistently, they automatically have over 50 vote. Throw in TX, FL and a few other states from that 70% and you'll have close to a consistent super majority absent any major changes. Never doubt Biden's ability to say something idiotic. Hopefully it will have him at under 10% by Christmas.

    Also could be that someone was coughing so Trump decided to cancel it so he could leave the room. Who knows with this idiot man child.
