Maybe somebody pointed out to them this could be used to justify running over abortion-clinic protesters.

That’s the problem with being a single-issue voter — and also precisely the reason the GOP has been courting the pro-life vote in the first place.  They’re so easy to please.

It really was just because of COVID that mail in votes were more likely to be democratic.  Typically absentee ballots skew republican because they’re mostly old people.

Yeah, this is a case of a child who is on the lowest end of the recommended time for their age range, but they’re probably still getting enough sleep for them. If them sleeping until 8 a.m. isn’t a problem for your schedule, I agree with Michael Ann Dobbs’s suggestion to let them read or play quietly in bed but they Read more

I’ve said this before, but he’s only as good as the director will let him be. Argo is fantastic. Fight me. BvS and JL were directed by Zack “Sucker Punch” Snyder and Rise of Skywalker was directed by J.J. “Empty Mystery Box” Abrams.

Chris Meloni is in that rare category of actor where the “subversion” of his persona came first, at least in terms of early notable roles. Meloni’s goofy, lovable, reliable-best-buddy energy is exactly what made Chris Keller such a deranged, dangerous and compelling character on Oz. His charm was only used Read more

There’s a big difference between a personality clash and actually having a character do something objectively bad. Harry is a dick to Sally when they first meet because he’s young and immature, he doesn’t secretly drive her to Vegas instead of New York or something.

Hue bulbs also work really well! I keep them on red and the lowest brightness. It’s enough to see by, without waking baby up too much

Since, as the commenters below have noted this is an inversion of the Vesper, I humbly suggest calling it the Matin.

Eh, I would argue that everyone removing their glasses makes everything equal, but not fair. It’s fair that the people that need something have it, but it is not equal. Handing out band aids for unknown medical issues seems like just poor medical practice. The difference between fair and equal is really just

This review makes me kinda want to see a movie I had no interest in before. Kudos

Yeah, it was weird to have a movie with an in-prime Sarah Jessica Parker and (we thought, at the time) McConaughey, and the only funny, sexy, or romantic thing about it is a sidekick subplot based around the idea that Zooey Deschanel thinks To Kill a Mockingbird is an instructional manual.

I agree with the underlying intent of your criticism here, but likening Amazon to forced slave labor is a disservice to the horrific reality of multi-generational slavery. Amazon may be scoundrels in respect to their treatment of their low/no-skill workforce, but they are not even a little akin to the practices of the Read more

Of course, in a functioning society, philanthropy wouldn’t be necessary. Both Bezos and Scott would be taxed appropriately, and their wealth would be redistributed
