    US Politics: What goes up, must come down!

    The thing about the Dulles Dance is that when you are a minor player and some foreign superpower like the US has decided to fund assassinations, coups, propaganda, invasions etc. to topple you, you Autocrat or you die...at which point they can point and go ‘see, Autocrat!’

    NFL: Super Bowl, offseason and quarterback musical chairs

    Cheers! Both girls doing great, aside from not eating much. Loooong night, but we’re getting there. Might have to stay in hospital until ~ Friday.

    OP folks, but off to the hospital, should be back in a day or so with 2 new 9er fans in tow. Bit nervous tbh, but I’m sure it’ll go fine. One of the girls flipped to breach so it has to be a C-section, which is less than ideal but happens every day, they tell me. Wish us luck. Bye for now.

    Lol, but there has never been anything anywhere near this ‘out of thin air’ before, has there? Like 18 months ago no one outside of Indiana had heard of him, and the only thing he’s done since is just campaign. It’s crazy.

    Words and Phrases that Bug You!

    My guess would be it dates back to the time when getting a cold or flu wasn’t something to be taken lightly.

    Eh, we’re all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at Childish Gambino.

    No, I realize, I’m saying Auden is often seen as being the clarion call for the second WW war, and his admiration of Yates earlier experiences with the troubles/WWI were later layered with an increasing understanding of a Yates’ own understanding that the artist can’t actually do anything to prevent the horror he or she sees coming. Once he realized that Yates had written with that understanding already in place, it pushed him into other places in search of any kind of solace, ultimately arriving at his Agape phase. Though again, in that he wrote to explicitly be opaque he might have had that understanding before his epiphany in Surrey, and just felt it less important than the other issues, often sexual identity and homosocial dynamics, that were driving him at that time. I am sick in bed and probably rambling atm. Auden’s a...hard to say love, because he’s often not enjoyable, but interest of mine. Maybe it’s my background in semiotics.

    It was. Auden was the pre-WWII poetic Cassandra.

    I’d be crying into my beer, but I ain’t got any beer.

    I said when they called that one on Kittle ‘okay, so long as they call it that way going the other way.’ So much for that.
  15. I think that’s slightly refuted by her reference to taking it to the SC, which would only be something the Democrats would have to do.
