    U.S. Politics: For Whom the Bell Polls

  2. Thanks! I haven't read 1610, and I should check it out.

    Well, he did a whole lot of that in 2015 - 16.
  4. Regarding fantasy inspired by roughly the same period of GOT -- I'd forgotten Mary Gentle's Ash: A Secret History. It's as gritty as one get -- in comparison with Ash, Arya's character looks like dress-up. A Secret History (in 1999), Carthage Ascendant, Wild Machines, and Lost Burgundy (all in 2000. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ash:_A_Secret_History

    Well, there is the perspective, that one comes to judging by his previous behavior about the campaign funds raised, is that those millions are HIS MONEY and not to be spent on campaigns, as he doesn't need commercials, ads, signs etc, as the media does it all for him. Which last part is true. So that money doesn't get spent because any disbursement of that money to other candidates is STEALING HIS MONEY FROM HIM.

    Hmmm. I didn't see plot holes in the books. But then, I read them as they were published, with quite a bit of time in between readings then, not at a single go.

    As far as being as civil as possible to these people even when one beat them in a wah, as in the wah of the rebellion -- look how well that turned out. They murdered Lincoln, tried to murder Grant, who was truly responsible for treating the rebels well, and they immediately went to war by other means and the same means too -- and immediately began violently 'correcting' the African American populations, which they continued with impunity right up until sometime in the 1970's -- and now believe they can do again, thanks to their empowerment by the racist orange nazi. They didn't believe they lost the war because they weren't treated like losers, so they believed those who told them they didn't lose -- but somehow the Union cheated them out of their victory.

    There's a lot of Native American back in one part of my family that settled earlier in Kentucky territory and Arkansas, then Oklahoma. (The other parts of my family, well, no, not at all. For one thing they arrived after that era -- the part of the family with much Native American genes got here in the 17th century and others right before the Independence era.) In the meantime the orange nazi's howls at Warrne are even more disgusting than usual. Also, how is it we've got a sitting so-called POTUS who is part of a murder cover-up? O wait, he thinks journalists who write mean things about him should be locked up! Writing what he doesn't like should be legally prohibited. How far is that from stepping up to murder of journalists -- which is seriously on the rise in white nationalist supremacist Europe, and attacks on journalists by their counterparts here is seriously on the rise and began with orange nazi's campaign.

    This also is part of the whole strategy as the orange nazi gloated when called out on on denigrating Dr. Blasey at his rallies -- the point, as he said, wasn't about being fair or honest or the truth. It was to keep people riled up and angry and that is how you win. He said it, "If I hadn't done that, we wouldn't have won." These people are not only not playing on the same field, they're not even playing the same game. They are playing for absolute power for themselves. Period.

    Exactly! But the real point of this bullying, abusive mess is that the ORANGE NAZI LIED ABOUT EVERY ASPECT OF THIS MESS HE HIMSELF CREATED. he's on recorded record, live, it's on all the news media, but he blowhards, "I never said I'd donate anything." And, of course, he won't, any more than he and his family pays taxes. Man, my quarterly tax bill got paid, and as per usual, under the rethugs, the cost is way higher than under Dems. And this one was especially crazy. But HE doesn't pay diddly squat. And steals. And Lies.

    But, she did, by speaking at length of the charity to which she wants the orange nazi to write the check -- she's said several times now, "... Please send the check to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center." You could send a check too!

    Magicians is just batshyte crazy, and I love that. Don't think the books were, though. which makes the batshyte even more fun, because I think the author really believed in his books in a way that the television writers -- just don't. Discovery of Witches just doesn't go into that territory of tone and attitude intentionally or unintentionally. The books at least, believe in themselves.

    Bernard Cornwell - warlord chronicles and beyond

    Because the series Merlin and Camelot -- especially with Camelot crashing and burning just as badly as it deserved to. Also because Vikings rolling so well, let's find another take on that. Because Martin endorsed the Last Kingdom books. As you may have noticed, putting Arthur on the screen hasn't worked very well in these last decades. What have we had beyond that awful Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and the Tristan and Isolde romance of 2006. Excalibur had really good parts but even more really awful ones. The Sword in the Stone was a kids' flick. Someone ranked Arthur movies here: https://www.tor.com/2017/05/23/lets-rank-all-the-king-arthur-movies-to-find-the-true-once-and-future-king/ Nothing Arthurian has seemed to work for screen - stage, since Camelot.

    It's the same as when he bullied Obama to release his birth certificate. But his doubling down on saying he never said blahblahblah is such gross lying, it should get him removed from office as mentally deranged. This is most particularly so from a guy who WILL NOT RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS. Considering what we've learned about his s-i-l's non-existant tax forms, that is hilarious. HOWEVER! in the meantime! Take cheer from this:

    What is more relevant is that the orange nazi, recorded many times, sneering at Warren as Pocohantas, etc., and who promised on the record that he'd donate personally a million dollars to Warren's favorite charity if she took a test that showed there was any NA bits in her make-up -- says, "I never said that." Every time he opens his mouth he lies. Even his insults and sneers are lies.
