In January of this year, near Stuyvesant Town in Manhattan, a coyote stalked the streets around a Con Ed power station until it was captured, given the unlikely nickname of “Stella,” then released into the Bronx. In March, a coyote taunted photographers from the rooftop of a bar in Queens,...

Even in the express settings it asks you if you want it to associate new apps. Just say no and uncheck a couple boxes. So easy.

And if you forget, Chrome and Firefox both belly ache as soon as you open them. #firstworldproblems

I'll save my outrage for something worthwhile.

BBC America's "The Last Kingdom" has quickly drawn comparisons to several well-known series: Imagine a mash-up of the action of "Game of Thrones," the historical particulars of "Downton Abbey," drama of "The Tudors" and the grittiness of "Vikings" all set against the backdrop of the nascent England's lesser-documented origins.

Now that Beijing has been chosen as the city to host the 2022 Winter Olympics , it faces a number of obstacles -- outrage over human rights abuses, its strangling pollution and a problem very specific to the season: Where is a city notorious for bone-dry winters going to get enough snow?

I think the real pressing issue is the lack of human rights in China. Snow can be bought and transported from elsewhere.

There was an article in the paper the other day listing local cities here in Orange County and how they had fared with water reduction goals. Most of them did fairly well. The main failures were in south county where the malodorous plutocrats live.

"The Iran hearings have shown how the Republican Party can no longer be trusted with the presidency."

"If Republicans win the White House next year, they’ll almost certainly control the entire federal government. Many of them, running for president or aspiring to leadership roles in Congress, are trying to block the nuclear deal with Iran. This would be a good time for these leaders to show that they’re ready for the responsibilities of national security and foreign policy. Instead, they’re showing the opposite. Over the past several days, congressional hearings on the deal have become a spectacle of dishonesty, incomprehension, and inability to cope with the challenges of a multilateral world."

+Jeff L The Iraqi government forced the US out of Iraq in 2011. Obama had no choice but to pull out. You people really should get your facts straight! Furthermore, we could stay there until dooms day and it would never make any difference! Islam and democracy are incompatible. Muslims, especially Arabs, love sectarian slaughter!

"Public Service Announcement: The right to free speech means the government can't arrest you for what you say. It doesn't mean anyone else has to listen to your bullshit or host you while you share it. The 1st Amendment doesn't shield you from criticism or consequences. If you're yelled at, boycotted, have your show cancelled, or get banned from an internet community, your free speech rights aren't being violated. It's just that the people listening think you're an asshole, and they're showing you the door."

Hypocrisy at work.

"While touting his hardline on immigration on the campaign trail for the GOP presidential nomination, Trump's companies have been recruiting foreign workers."

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.
