Our leaders and media push time-worn nonsense about American innocence, while taking aggressive moves. Look out

Is it just me or is Minjee Lee on fire? I'm referring to her golf game today, of course.

Trolls are disempowered individuals who seek control over others by evoking emotional reactions. They call you names. They say you and your friends are sluts. You can disarm them most effectively by ignoring them. So ignore them. They don't matter (in fact much of the time they don't even believe what they say).

Apology accepted and keep spreading the word. 
By Mark Lynas - I want to start with some apologies. For the record, here and upfront, I apologize for having spent several years ripping up GM crops. I am also

Because they're easy to lie to...
The midterms were as much a referendum on Obama as they were the byproduct of GOP's successful fear-mongering

I'm with you, Timmo, but legalizing weed is the best solution to the meth scourge. Colorado figured it out. The geniuses in Nebraska will need at least another 2 decades and years of irrefutable evidence to finally figure it out (that's being optimistic).

A lot of risk remains: Debt and (not much) deleveraging.
Global debt has grown by $57 trillion and no major economy has decreased its debt-to-GDP ratio since 2007. High government debt in advanced economies, mounting household debt, and the rapid rise of China’s debt are areas of potential concern. A McKinsey Global Institute article.

I noticed Fox News turned it up to 11 on Net Neutrality as well. I am glad Obama made the statement he did.

Finally a sensible analysis of the subject, that highlights why I feel self-piloted airplanes will become widespread sooner than cars. 
A good technology demonstration so wows you with what the product can do that you might forget to ask about what it can't. Case in point: Google's self-driving car. There is a surprisingly long list of the things the car can't do, like avoid potholes or operate in heavy rain...

The Mud Pie shake was pretty bland. I should have gone to McDonald's to get the same quality shake for half the price.

Good beers, decent burger. Got a side of veggies instead of fries and they were grilled perfectly, not too soft or oily. Good experience overall. Probably best menu in the immediate area.

Easy to overlook among the nearby Starbucks and chain restaurants, but this is the place in the area for a friendly experience with locally sourced foods.

The Guinness was a piss pour substitute for a real pour. Tasted awful. Weak sound system. Nice decor, good service, good location.
