He said something hideous in relation to the “angel” families, I literally gasped when he said it. It escapes me at the moment, due to the immediately following crazy talk on another subject.

Re: Virginia Governor's Mess

It might be helpful to distinguish between "socially acceptable in [location X]," and "socially acceptable within the white community in [location X]." Because, at least to me, saying that first one kind of implies that what members of the nonwhite communities in those places thought about the prac...

It was racist then, but it was socially acceptable, especially in the south.

Re: Michael Avenatti

Actually, that’s incorrect, in my experience. The attorney’s fees are awarded to the party, not the attorney. It’s presumed they will pay their attorney. But they don’t have to. That’s why attorneys file attorney’s liens in the case, which means the attorney will get the money directly from the cour...

Re: 2018-2019 Government Shutdown

I wouldn’t say that the shutdown was for nothing. We (and the GOP and Trump and the Trunpistas) learned, for example that the oft-recently-used government shutdown is merely a short term ploy, not a long-term move. It has real life consequences if it goes beyond a week or two, including ground stops...
