NYTimes: Madeleine Albright: My Undiplomatic Moment
I should know better than to tell a group of women to go to hell. But the sentiment behind my statement is true: Women need to help one another.

Scary. I really wish that they would stop trying to shove religion in our face.
“We are at a cultural crossroads in our country, and if we can be in this race to show this country the face of the God that we serve — this Christian God that we serve is the foundation of our country, our country was built on Judeo-Christian values, we are a nation of freedom ...

Paxton just seems slimy altogether. Let him get disbarred and the state of Texas get on with obeying SCOTUS.

America hasn't so much flirted with fascism, as had a life long affair with it.

If there was any logic to it, the same side demanding less interference from the government in their lives would not be the side demanding the government control who and how you can fuck or marry and who, how and if you have religious beliefs.

And while they're swabbing his feet and hands allegedly looking for chemical residue from bombs, they're forcibly obtaining his DNA in violation of his constitutional rights (yes, I realize the US Constitution doesn't cover you outside the US). People will defend this and claim the government isn't compiling DNA data from these collections. Yup...you keep believing that.

This is a game changer.
Justice Scalia, whose legal theories, vivid writing and outsize personality made him a leader of a conservative renaissance, was found dead on Saturday in Texas.

The seat needs to be filled so justice will be fair, not to mention legal.

They're not claiming they traced the signal to a source, so how exactly does one "replicate" this?  And will you be satisfied if all they do is wait to see it happen again?  Are we not playing along with allowing them to lower the bar here?  I'm not sure I can think of a comparable example where this would be convincing in astronomy today ...

"We saw some signals which look like something we think occurs.  We can't locate the source, but we're pretty sure that it's a black hole merger."

People seem to have forgotten how to doubt the pronouncement of authorities.  This is cosmology, folks.  It's at the edge of science, and arguably mostly metaphysics.  It's not the same as the physical sciences; we shouldn't accept ideas just because we like them.

As Brooks wrote:

"Obama radiates an ethos of integrity, humanity, good manners and elegance that I’m beginning to miss, and that I suspect we will all miss a bit, regardless of who replaces him."

Story
Tagline
Love learning new things.
Introduction
Dad, Consultant, Cornellian, traditional liberal (it's about free markets, free trade and free speech), avid reader and film buff, youth soccer, basketball, little league coach, tech geek, policy wonk, historian, SF lover, sports fan and even more which at some point I'll get to. I truly enjoy open, tolerant, frank yet respectful exchanges. Love learning new things.

I love to share all kinds of posts and have respectful, intelligent debates and conversations. While many posts will be related to politics or issues of personal liberty and freedom, you'll also find a fair number of other things given my wide range of, at times, eclectic interest. The main thing is to be respectful and have fun. Also, don't be afraid to moderate the comment threads on your own posts (I'm not). If people can't be polite and civil, don't be afraid to block them. Being open to conflicting and different ideas does not mean you have to accept rudeness.

Grew up back East in NYC, engineer and ROTC in college, though now live on the West Coast and have lived and traveled all over the world as a kid and an adult (if i can just get to Antarctica, I can nail down every continent). Member, Pacific Council on International Policy.
