    House Formally Launches Impeachment Inquiry

    A couple of reasons. Impeachment is equivalent to the indictment stage of a criminal case. That's what you issue when you have sufficient evidence a crime/impeachable offense has been committed. The criminal justice system doesn't stop working just because they might lose a case, and neither...

    Nobody Cares: PRS

    Obviously I was joking, but when I lived in Seattle, I climbed halfway up Mt Rainier, which is still considered active, and have visited Mt. St. Helen's visiting area several times. The dome growing in that crater is visible evidence of it being very active. Not many people know this, but the...

    Note that the average for each group is distorted by the exponentially higher incomes at the high end. The "entry level" for the 1% is $328,500, where the average is $1.1 million. If we subtract out the top 0.1%, the average for the lower 9/10ths of the 1% becomes ~$670,000.

    Yay! Christmas Season Has Officially Begun!

    Sure it is. So far I've traveled from 1958 to 2019.

    Well, his dad was arrested at a KKK riot in 1927, so possibly.

    The Future is Shocking

    I've been worrying about the "technological unemployment" problem for half a dozen years now. It's not just people being put out of work becoming poor. It's that they can no longer pay rent or mortgage payments, so landlords and lenders lose out. They don't pay sales taxes, so local...

    Well, that's the last time I book a tour to an active volcano.

    Yay! Christmas Season Has Officially Begun!

    Since that photo is dated in the future (2031), apparently the North Pole has melted by then, and Santa has been a homeless drunk for several years.

    Apparently Trump wants to ban all births in the 9th month, including from male wombs:

    Kamala Harris Drops Out Of Presidential Race

    Gaetz' district is in what we call "South Alabama", the panhandle area just south of Alabama proper. At most he might resonate with south Georgia politically, being more or less similar populations, but not with the northern part of the state where most of the people live. For statewide...

    Kamala Harris Drops Out Of Presidential Race

    She was *not* Trump's choice. He wanted one of the current Republican House representatives from GA to take the seat, I think one of the very conservative ones. Governor Kemp won his seat by 2 points. He knows to win in Georgia these days you need to appeal to more than the far right. Ms...

    Anyone else getting seriously worried Trump will win in 2020?

    Banks are fairly far down on people's hate meter. Both houses of Congress just passed a bill against robocalling. Passed Senate 97 to 1. Passed House 417 to 3. That's at the top of the hate meter. Health insurance costs and rich vs everyone else probably rate a lot higher than bank reform.

    Kamala Harris Drops Out Of Presidential Race

    Meanwhile, here in Georgia, the governor just appointed the wife of the CEO of the NY Stock Exchange to replace a US senator who's retiring for health reasons. Yah, sure, she's the best qualified for the job.

    WTF Climate Change News

    Cheap batteries are necessary for widespread clean energy, and to make electric cars affordable. So the good news is they have been getting cheaper this decade, a lot cheaper. They are needed for clean energy because sources like wind and solar are variable. So you need a way to store it for...

    House Formally Launches Impeachment Inquiry

    Senators will vote in their self-interest. If they think their election prospects will improve by voting for Trump, they will. If they think he's toxic to their re-election they will dump him. The question is how the public will feel when it gets to a that point. Given national polls show...

    Kamala Harris Drops Out Of Presidential Race

    That's not how it works. That's not how any of this (politics) works. This is basically a game of "Survivor", and we get to vote people off the island. The voting is with dollars in the early stage (which is why Harris dropped out), and with actual votes in the later stage.

    Maybe on what people want to watch, but their search engine is a garbage dump, and the average video quality is low.
