  6. True. Unfortunately, we were made to have a live fire exercise to find out. Now, he can brag on the campaign trail that he didn't nuke Guam.
  7. A shocking result. I guess Senator Feinstein does not need to retire now? Newsom beats California recall The governor will remain in office after crushing a conservative-driven effort in the blue state. https://www.politico.com/news/2021/09/14/california-recall-election-newsom-511858
  8. If you were a Seattle sports fan, you would assume this at all times. I mean I witnessed the Utah Jazz fans throwing fing ice at the noble and heroic Supersonics, huge bricks of the stuff. And the refs refused to see it.

The main character is a former torturer at Abu Ghraib and the few scenes from there were extremely disturbing to me. Tiffany Haddish was excellent and I wish we had got to spend more time with her character. The film really bores down on Oscar Isaac's William Tell character.
  13. No, but there is a precedent for if the state willfully secedes. The southern states were put under military rule.
  14. Senate Democrats Close To Agreement On Voting Rights Compromise The bill is being crafted by Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who opposed the original bill, and a group of Democrats. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/for-the-people-act-compromise-joe-manchin_n_613a6127e4b0628d0958fbf9
