  1. So good... This article explains a lot of the little Easter Eggs (eggs!) from the episode. https://slate.com/culture/2019/12/watchmen-finale-faq-angela-abar-manhattan-trieu-cyclops-keene-blake.html
  2. Pourquoi? Fox Polls aren't really that bad in spite of what we might be predisposed to thinking.
  3. One thing that strikes me is tha lack of voices here or elsewhere to defend against this worst act against democracy. Sure, you're against the abuse of FISA warrants. Me too! We should totally hang out. Oh, you don't give a fuck about how we silence the voices of folks who might actually affect change through their representatives? Shove that white hot poker up your ass, Anastasis.
  4. I don't get a lol out that at all. They should be immediately kicked out of West Point for flashing white power hand signs instead of infiltrating our armed forces with their sick ideology.
  5. In 2012, Carlson and his brother, Buckley, filed a lawsuit to determine succession of his estranged mother's –– Lisa Vaughn –– right to oil and gas royalties in B&N Minerals Partnership, in which she received royalties to nearly 70,000 acres of land in Kern, Merced & Fresno counties in California, initially valued at over $125,000. In 2015, after several appeals, the value of the rights was found to be over $2.5 million. However, in a one-page handwritten will produced during the proceedings, Vaughn explicitly expressed that she did not want Carlson or his brother to receive any inheritance from her: "I leave all of my earthly goods and possessions to my husband, Michael Erroll Vaughan. This includes but is not limited to; all of my shares of our jointly owned real estate, personal property, common stock, mutual fund shares, bank accounts, silver, paintings, jewelry and vehicles. I leave my sons Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson and Buckley Swanson Peck Carlson one dollar each; $1.00 each." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tucker_Carlson?wprov=sfla1 In fairness, she doesn't come off great herself (left the family when he was a kid, which might explain why he's such a cunt himself).
  6. And their country is literally dying a slow death. ETA: Birth and death statistics show that the pace of Japan's population collapse is speeding up, The Japan Times reported. About 127 million people live in Japan. The population could drop below the 100 million mark by 2049, according to the National Institute of Population and Social Security Research. Not only is Japan expected to enter a long period of population decline, but also its inhabitants are aging out of the workforce. By 2036, one in three people will be elderly, researchers project. https://www.npr.org/2018/12/21/679103541/japans-population-is-in-rapid-decline
  7. Hungary certainly has. Poland is on the brink. Greece and Italy have dabbled in it some.
  8. Next time you see him, ask what it's like to be so loathed by his own mother that she left him $1 as his inheritance. Then call him a semiliterate primitive monkey.
  9. Agreed. Trump's defenders are not "big C" conservatives. They're only con men or marks.
  10. Good for you. We need pragmatic conservatives around to help provide us guard rails as we pass down this mountain. What we don't need are retrograde assholes to stomp the breaks or slap it into reverse.
  11. No one knows the future with certainty, but remaining nimble is the only way to ride the foreseeable waves. Fighting it is pointless. Navigating the flow is the only manageable or rational choice. It's like the NIMBY's refusal to adapt to Austin's inevitable growth, fucking it up for everyone.
  12. Or it could just be a complete lack of acceptance that the world could be or certainly will be different than they can imagine, which might be at the heart of conservatism. Conservative beliefs aren't necessarily a bad thing as they might provide a useful "tap the breaks" purpose to head-long change. Where it becomes dangerous is when they're a refusal to accept reality or, worse, an insistence to try to reverse the clock to the detriment of all of us: conservative, liberal, black, white, latino, men, women, and otherwise.
  13. Like all of you, I kinda feel like this is an immediate power grab, knowing that most every demographic and economic trend runs against them. After that, my guess is we'll see their painful retreat holding on for dear life to maintain every advantage they made during this period. In the long run, they know they can't stop the wheels of time nor history, but they will hold off the power of progress as long as they can -- hoping that they'll personally never see the day again that a middle class minority attains the highest office -- while indoctrinating as many of the young 'un alt-righters as they can for some future date beyond their own mortality. It's my view that the techie Parscale/Spencer hipster dress-up incel types will be the ones that our kids will be dealing with in the foreseeable future as a radical terrorist minority. In other words, everything we're seeing now is the precedent for a protracted rear-guard action following our current "Battle of the Bulge" situation.
  14. It's quite possible the Brexiteers inadvertently opened the Pandora Box of making separatism seem like a viable solution on the island and it could come to bite them in the ass.
