    Stay safe in the southeast today. Awful weather overnight and it's going to crawl by today. Definitely need to bring in the lawn furniture, etc.. Suzanimal might be in it already (I never remember exactly where you are).

    Comparing it to everyone else, seems like it was more of an issue than that. Or maybe everyone else is on speed.

    Mostly it's because it's easier to screech for a law (when they're likely to get one) than it is to work to change hearts, minds, and private contracts of any sort. One of the other images you posted contains a great deal of truth. I could not afford to drop everything and go to DC for several days. Even when I lived in the area, the investment of time would be significant to get to a Metro station, park, take the train into town, get out, navigate this mess, etc.. Many of these women supposedly come from pretty far away. How did they get there? Did the celebrities bus some of them in? If so, how sick is that? Instead of donating to the causes they say they champion, they knit a few more hats and sent people on their way to protest? Not a one of them can name specific legislation they are against (especially since he hasn't been part of introducing anything yet). They are upset over things he said before, and they are upset over a bunch of petty stuff that has no relation to politics at all. Let's round it all off to 500k from all over the nation. Maybe if they'd been this passionate and this mobilized up front, their Hillary would have won. I am willing to bet a chunk of them stayed home, butthurt they couldn't vote for Bernie. Another portion stayed home because it was easy to do so. A small portion stayed home because they hated both options. That's fine, but then don't get this pissy over Trump winning; it's ridiculous. You know why stuff like "Christian Mingle" and "Farmers Only" and whatever get so much press and so many hits? Because people are desperate to avoid women and men like in the photos. Because I want someone who's never put on a sweater vest, and who doesn't have to think too long about whether they want to put on a bowler, or perhaps a bowtie, to go out to dinner with friends. Someone who opens doors and pays sincere compliments and is nice to old people, waiters, and dogs. He can be mean to cats, though. Cats are awful. Someone who likes to read and be quiet, but also has a sense of humor that may include a few more vulgar items that are only told under the right circumstances. Someone who's not easily offended at all, but does take it to heart if he offends someone else, taking it as an opportunity to learn something new (even if that something new is that people are way too easily offended). Also, at this point, he has to smoke or drink (or both) and be able to maintain all those character traits even when relaxed, drunk, or high. And he has to love my cooking. You will not find that marching in the streets at these damned protests.

    Tape aside, I don't see a whole lot of cleaning going on. If you bother to tape a child to the wall (or send them upstairs, or put them in time out, or wtfe), then CLEAN THE DAMNED HOUSE.

    Are you discussing laws or rights? I'm surprised to see someone mix the two up on here. Of course, that's one of the major problems with this march. There really ARE women's health issues that are a huge, systematic problem, but they have very little to do with legislation. Signs that say "stay out of my uterus" would make more sense if those same women were not screeching for funding for things to go in and around their uterus. If we are referring to laws, it's just going to become a war of anecdotes, and I'm not keen to get into that. I have been through some things where I was quite surprised to find roadblocks I hadn't considered, and that would definitely affect women at a higher rate, but I can also readily predict the arguments that would ensue on this board. Regardless, whichever gender is being treated "more unfairly," the solution is not going to be more legislation, societal backlash, or reparations.

    I don't really agree with that. There are still a number of situations where women are treated unfairly or downright terribly based purely on being women. These situations aren't new, as opposed to the relatively recent oppression of men (particularly via child support, etc.), so there are old injustices with new ones being piled on every day. Where I differ, though, is that these are battles that can be fought by people rather than Government. We don't need more laws, or special protection, or pandering speeches. It really is along the lines of all the other "rights" groups. We should be focusing on human, God-given, non-obtrusive rights for everyone rather than imposing laws on people to make life "fair" for others. The only one to profit from that is the entity making the laws --- and enforcing them.

    I'm quite sure Trump looked at the initial success of Ron, especially in Iowa and the rest of the early primary states in 2012, when it comes to being anti-establishment.

    I think it's hard to say. The LP could win a seat, I don't know.. There has to be a grassroots campaign though since the media will ignore them. And with ignoring I mean, zero airtime. And if there is any airtime it's probably to ridicule. They would need 15x the votes they got the last election or so to win a single seat. But then, anything can happen. I'm certainly talking to some people but I find that a lot people while receptive to lower taxes then say 'yes but not for the rich, they have to pay.', so I'm not sure if I can convince that many people to vote for them. On the other hand, I guess the people that voted in the last election are dedicated and will vote for them again. Which is a luxury that most other parties with no seats do not have. They are more of the same philosophy. I don't know about it becoming more libertarian. There are reasons why I think the future is great and then there are plenty of reasons why I don't think it will be so great. I think people want to be comforted by charismatic people and those charismatic people will run up the debt because they can, play to peoples fears... And while talking a great deal about good solutions, not actually accomplishing any of them. Overall though, I don't know. Anything can happen. If the LP for instance would be featured on some kind of TV program that people actually watch, a single seat would become easy to get. People with zero name recognition have successfully started new parties before, but they got media attention... In regards to an anti-immigrant stance, yes I do think people will become more anti-immigrant. Which I think is a sad thing since we're all people and there is no reason to have animosity towards others. I do think that we should stop giving immigrants benefits as soon as they come in. I'd like something where people are free to come but they have to provide for themselves for the first 5 years before they are eligible for anything. And I'm not against refugees but I don't like the way anybody can come over right now. It's not safe and we're allowing people with a vastly different way of life, ideology and birth rate over into our country, in large numbers. In my opinion anyone is welcome as long as they respect our ways and traditions.. I'm afraid though that the anti-immigrant sentiment that in the next years will become greater isn't based on such a rational thought. I'm afraid that people won't really see the difference. Which is a shame because there are some great people who happen to be immigrants.

    Oh also, I know we have some people in the area (relatively close, anyhow). Is there anything secondhand that would help out? For instance, if you were anywhere near me you'd have a quilt or two, some towels, and a TV stand. As it is, you're better off with me sending cash than spending it on shipping you stuff you might not like/need, but maybe someone is nearby if you need things to get started. Hell, I even have a set of plates lol I know there have to be people like that closer to where you are.

    I listened to a significant portion of it at work. Whether it's the portions I agreed with, or the larger portion I didn't agree with, it's still all words. I will admit to an unfounded hope that, when they were all smooching his backside while he was signing executive orders (not the important sort), he would tell them he was going to sign them all with the same pen. Instead he let them "remind" him into using a different one for each item, so they could be given away as expensive little mementos. Only time will tell what actually gets DONE in this administration, which is what is worrisome.

Marching to War Requires Two Feet

Marching to War Requires Two Feet
by Matt Malkus

America has become a nation marching to war in lockstep, left foot following right foot towards the all-too-certain future that has already befallen the body's other half. Crushing electoral defeats serve as little deterrent in a political system where the pendulum swings comfortably on the same axis, the defeat coming at the hands of the opposite extreme which just as aggressively pursues the same noble goals via the same dead
