  1. DOJ Initial Russia Hearings

    @commando, are you sure they weren't referring to current FBI director Christopher Wray? That's what I saw about this.
  2. The Republican Utopia

    I feel like this is the best place to put this, as it's a look at a fairly prominent alt-right guy from Sweden. The American Right should know what they've gotten in bed with, what their party and a lot of their base refuse to get away from:
  3. Website Hosting

    https://sites.google.com/?pli=1 ? Google sites is free, and might suit your use case perfectly. You might also consider https://asmallorange.com/hosting/shared/ as well. Not a huge company, but I'm not a big fan of those. Nevertheless, ASO has been around for quite some time. If you're more technically inclined, you can try for a cloud solution: https://www.linode.com/pricing or https://www.digitalocean.com, set up your own server, and run the website from there. These are all in the $5-10/mo range for your needs, most likely.

      That's my favorite one! :D

      "The tall Death Eater was wearing a shirt that said 'Hermione Has Forgotten How to Dance', so Hermione dipped his face in the mud"


      "They looked at the door, screaming about how closed it was and asking it to be replaced with a small orb. The password was "BEEF WOMEN", Hermione cried. 



  5. The Republican Utopia

    Oh, man. I meant Strange, not Gillespie. But I think the issue is this: among people who are aboard the "reject Bannon" train, they already oppose Trump. Among people who support Trump, he can do no wrong. This is a natural cover, which Trump has already employed: he says he backed Strange because he knew Moore was less likely to win. Fox called this a referendum not on their Glorious President, but on Harvey Weinstein. In Alabama, the Republicans are furious and livid. But they're mad that they elected a "baby killer". They blame Republicans in the sense that they haven't accomplished passing the tax bill yet or repealed Obamacare. These people will come home.
  6. The Republican Utopia

    Hmmmm, or maybe it's going to be "we should have listened to Trump and gone with Gillespie."
  7. Dems Rebuild

    That'd be disappointing, to say the least. How can progress in this or any other area be made if we have Democrats expending energy pretending that political expediency is actually, in an alternative interpretation, really about values?
  8. Sexism - It's a Real Thing

    Slightly different, but connected topic. Good thread: This isn't about sexism or racism or anything per se. Just about diversity and how to amplify voices that usually aren't. Here's an example of one such effort: http://remezcla.com/lists/film/latino-film-critics-review-pixar-coco/ Posting in this thread just because I think it touches on a lot of the same ideas, when we talk about amplifying perspectives that usually don't, listening more to people who don't generally hold the megaphones, etc. It's a way of thinking about things outside of the pitchfork mob/threat response model.
  9. The Republican Utopia

    It's not just the conservative media, too. Everyone gets suckered into the game. An example I saw of a regular media headline: "____ becomes ___th celebrity to endorse Roy Moore's opponent." A microcosm of the general way this election has been covered. Yes, Roy Moore is bad. The bombardment is ineffective, a dangerous erasure, and a failure on the part of all media.
  10. Honest Expectations (Frost and Co)

    Clean program, represented with class, long term commitment to the coach, do not care about W/L.

    The Federalist.
  12. Sexism - It's a Real Thing

    There are some very, very good reads in response to 'Cat Person'. This from the Atlantic: https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/12/cat-person-is-not-an-essay/548111/ 'Cat Person' and the impulse to undermine women's fiction. Here, in The New Yorker where the short story was originally published, an interview with the author: And, of course, the short story itself: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/12/11/cat-person There's even a collection of responses, to save (some) the trouble of writing those themselves: https://www.avclub.com/a-twitter-account-has-begun-collecting-mens-reactions-t-1821203037

    I CAN’T WAIT!!!! AhhhhhhhhhHhhhhhhh
  14. Where to get your news

    Oh, they're well aware that this wasn't causation, I think. The reason for the connection is "lol, karma", in the same way we might look at an awful, say, child predator, and go "haha, something unrelatedly bad happened to them." The issue here is what Fox has identified as the crime: speaking out against Trump. And also, that they're not wrong about what their readers get up for.
