I have trouble with any sentence that has both Trump and intelligence in it.

Well, duh. The question is whether the United States, politically, morally and ethically, decides it wants to do anything about it. This is a serious existential question we seem to be treating with the seriousness of the winner of the last season of The Voice.

And the Sandy Hook incident was a mass killing by one deranged individual with a gun.

Now: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

They're not traitors! They're just incompetent!!!

Don got conned. I don't know how you can grow up in that family and not know to validate the goods first. Or how to recognize the "there's much more, we just need a minute to put it in a box before we send it to you" ploy.

Hey now, at least the Lions lose honorably.  The Trumps cheat AND lose money.  The Trumps are like if the Patriots had the Browns' record.

Question is, what's gonna happen when we hit stage 3?

Interesting article, but you don't have to be an intelligence expert to see that this was probably a feeler operation meant to test receptivity.

Then they start getting stuffed into squad cars and we start debating what kind of federal prison they are going to vs. execution techniques that are still on the books for treason.

We still have a functioning government.

The cartoonist didn't even need to identify halfscoop in this. That weak ass chin is recognizable anywhere. Beavis and Butthead ending up with the worst combination of trump genetic material (I know, I know- any trump genetic material is the worst) is the cherry on top for me. They hit every ugly branch in that family tree.

The Trump version of Operation would have an empty head, as there would be no brains. Or it has his head where his ass should be to make the shiat come out his mouth much easier.

I'd say that season of Star Trek TNG that was shot during the writer's strike. (Can't remember if it was 5, 6 or 7).

The one where every other episode was a clip show or a dream sequence.

Except they won't.   This was pretty evident with the first attempted travel ban, it was being enforced nearly a whole day against a court order.  It became very obvious that the people who control the courts don't have any power, its the people who control the military and the police.   That was very much a "whatcha gonna do about it?" moment and a glimpse of our future.

I remember that season of TNG. The one with Pulaski. And Riker with the disease that hates certain memories. And...
Like you, I don't remember which season it was.

Any suggestions on how to read Wash Post on a smartphone? Incognito with cookies deleted doesn't work. Not paying $10 per month when TF only $4.  Otherwise I will simply read the Fark comments. Thanks.

I just went ahead and paid for a subscription. I live in the DC area, and they generally have all the juicy dirt that will be the next day's water cooler conference at the office. I'm a defense contractor, we usually find the Post a more reliable source for info than the agencies we work for.

I like that systemic corruption is now a stabilizing force. When guys like the Russian lobbyist start taking the moral high ground, it's because they know that things getting worse means the FBI starts getting subpoenas.
