Re: Trump to eliminate birthright citizenship

The way that could work would be to instruct the Department of State and the Social Security Administration not to issue passports or Social Security numbers to babies born after a certain date in the future unless at least one parent is a citizen or green-card-holder. That has FAIL written all ove...

Re: The Fractally Clueless White House

Years ago, I worked with a woman whose husband was stationed in Thule, Greenland. She pronounced it "too-lee" and told me it was the origin of the expression "out in the "toolies". In classical and medieval literature, ultima Thule (Latin "farthermost Thule") acquired a metaphorical meaning of any ...

I rather suspect that 99% of the people who had contact with Epstein on a regular or occasional basis prior to 2009 had no clue about what he was into.

After 2009, I bet that many still remained clueless.

We have a Walmart and a Sam's club near me.

The Sam's club closed unceremoniously Jan. 1 a couple years ago. The building is still empty.

I don't get the logic of that. It's not OK to fire someone for being female, but it is OK to fire them for being a female who transitioned to male?

Word of the day

One of the technical terms that my son learned in Greenland.

Kleptoparasite

A word which I like, and feel that describes the current administration very well.
