    See the problem with the way Snyder thinks is he thinks it's a coaching problem. That's one piece. It's a complete systems problem. His entire organization is run by morons. Bruce Allen is a dumpster fire and completely clueless. Tomlin was successful because Pittsburgh is a great organization and he was a good coach. That's not Washington. You're probably right though that he will go there. There are probably 10 great organizations in the NFL. But not many in the NFC East.

    Because first and foremost, common does not consider the state to be an interested party in the proceedings. Common law courts were a place where one individual could bring a claim against another individual and expect resolution between individuals. Enough claims built up over time , with enough actual interest in resolving disputes equitably, that these very concepts emerged to serve as guidelines. All of this liability talk not only presumes from the start that the state is an interested party, it assumes that the state is the PRIMARY interested party. The overt argument "people won't innovate unless they are free from liability" is a thin veil for the real argument - which is that we need the law and the courts to engage in social engineering. The primary purpose of that law, the primary purpose of ANY statute - is not to protect people. Statute's primary purpose is to further the aims of the state.

    It's really kind of funny to me that in this day and age people are outraged about funny business like family and other interests being involved in governement jobs and business. It's like they have no concept of the Kennedy or any other administrations historical roots.

    This was already covered by my second post here and the one by rev3.0 right above this. State and federal governments expressly passing statutory law absolving Michael Dell's corporation of personal liability in the pursuit of his business venture, is not the sole avenue for limiting liability. There is not only more than one way to skin that cat, but the previous way, through common law court cases, is the better way. Again, you're assuming the personal risk exists outside of the federal and state corporate law absolving it.

    All the previous talk about "they can't just get rid of the laws they have" falls flat with me, too, because a significant part of this is common law, or arose from common law. There is already a process for deciding equitable delineation of liability that has nothing to do with statute. The fact that it hasn't been used in recent history doesn't speak at all to whether or how much it is useful.

    Now that's really the main argument, isn't it? At least the one I've always heard. I want to hear examples where a company was stifled by not being able to grow to international, un-sueable size. I work in IT, and all the examples of innovation I can point to - all of them - were accomplished by a couple guys in a garage... and a large percentage of those innovations were actively killed by the exact same people once they got to mega-corporate size. Apple pioneered useful, affordable, user-friendly personal computers... and now they specialize in overpriced hardware that you don't have any control over. Google pioneered searches that actually return valid results... and now if you search Google you're tacitly admitting you don't actually want to find anything new. The narrative is that innovation wouldn't happen without the allure of becoming a billionaire world-changer, and that's just crap. One only has to look at porn - I mean, not literally, but look at the industry. The porn industry has been the biggest innovator on the web ever since the very beginning, and you can't name a single porn industry company unless you actually watch it. They have always been small and lean, because they don't enjoy (and therefore don't employ) the same legal protections as Facebook and Microsoft. But they keep innovating, long after companies like Microsoft "innovate" primarily by deliberately breaking their interfaces. I am one of those people who recognizes that once you kick that leg out from underneath the argument - the leg that says "they wouldn't innovate otherwise" - the argument collapses entirely.

    The sad thing is I've only seen two live McCartney in his prime and Brian Wilson definitely not in his. I missed Dylan last year and regret it. There are only a handful of bands I still like that I think carry on rocks tradition, but most of them are more in the alternative vein now. Greta Van Fleet is about the only band I know that has single handedly paid tribute to and also is about as close to a perfect mirror image of a famous band's style.

    Since when is the "We got a badass over here" meme "gay"? It's been all over the interwebz for many moons and it's used by all sorts of folks. There are several samples in the various "bestest picture thread evarrr"-s.
  8. The reason I have no use for monarchies is it's complete pot luck what you get. If your generation gets a Victoria, you could be in worse shape (assuming her advisors aren't lying to her about what they're doing), but if you get an Ivan the Terrible you're screwed. I prefer a system that at least holds out hope for nonviolent revolution, whether people are generally smart enough to use it or not.

    And I'm pretty sure you meant neither Bismarck nor the kaiser.

    You're right, I should have said the Kaiser, not Bismarck. :/ (My WWI history is rather rusty...I do remember Hitler suffered from mustard gas inhalation during that war and a bunch of other factoids) Yeah, monarchs have been somewhat fascist in certain occasions, but they always had incentive not to destroy their subjects' economy or their own respective societies as presidents and prime ministers or even legislators do. (such elected officials almost always leave office very wealthy and almost never face justice for their misdeeds) Generally speaking, the best to worst scale goes- voluntary association with government>hereditary monarchy>monarchy>classical republicanism>modern constitutionalism>democracy etc.

What has it to do with politics? Everything. Politicians piss us off, then try to misdirect our anger 'across the aisle' to people who are fundamentally exactly the same, but wear a different party label. The game is age old, but still works.

People are angry, but they are often in denial about it. They know they're angry, but they don't want to admit they're angry
