    Ring’s latest security camera is a drone that flies around inside your house

    Brought to my mind the intro to 1984: “In the far distance a helicopter skimmed down between the roofs, hovered for an instant like a bluebottle, and darted away again with a curving flight. It was the police patrol, snooping into people's windows. The patrols did not matter, however. Only the...

    Who here used to ride around in one of these sweet chariots?

    I have a silver 2010 of these caddy wagons. 3.0 liter, since I didn’t trust buying a 7 year old GM supercharged engine. Not as fun as the 2003 Z06 was... When it does croak my brother wants to install an LSX. Tempted.

    The return of American fascism

    “Mussolini, who did not allow his work as dictator to interrupt his prolific journalism, wrote a glowing review of Roosevelt's Looking Forward. He found "reminiscent of fascism … the principle that the state no longer leaves the economy to its own devices"; and, in another review, this time of...

    Republicans- does it bother you that your party lied to you about the SCOTUS pick in 2016?

    “Does it bother you, though, that they claimed it was about letting the people have a say?” Political split between WH and Senate in 2016, who resolves that - voters. Voters put same party in WH and Senate for 2020, what is there to resolve?

    How many innocent people are we ok with the police shooting?

    Give them armed drones and looser ROE and they could do better. And call them something snappy, like ‘signature strikes’. Then no one, least of all Belem, will care how many innocent people they kill.

    How Sorry Do You Feel for the Folks Along the Gulf Who Keep Getting Hammered?

    If the zoning hasn’t changed why can’t I build a cinder block house on the ground like the ones I see along the river? If I bought a lot next door I’m only allowed to build 19’ above sea level. The cinder block houses went in during the 50s.

    How Sorry Do You Feel for the Folks Along the Gulf Who Keep Getting Hammered?

    You’ll see the poors pushed from the beaches as they won’t be able to afford to rebuild to new code. Obama and others will still have their beach houses.

    POLL: Worst-Handled Crises of This Millennium

    US meddling in other countries need its own category. How many countries have we turned into hell holes? Afghanistan? Iraq? Syria? Libya? Yemen? Ukraine? Low grade participation in wars from the Philippines to sub-Saharan African. What a colossal waste.

    The unanswered question of our time: Is Trump an agent of Russia?

    “For any American who wants an answer sooner, there are just five words, among the thousands of suggestive texts Page and Strzok exchanged, that you should read. That passage was transmitted on May 19, 2017. "There's no big there there," Strzok texted. The date of the text long has intrigued...

    Page 17 of Bob Woodward's book, Rage

    I explicitly said in his case Biden is going to do what you expect him to do, but you learn that Russia wants him to be President, does it change your vote? We can safely assume Biden is going to ‘work for Americans’, but if Russia approves of it what does that actually change for you?

    So you wouldn’t want him to be President to do the things you think he will do if you found out the Russians wanted him as President? How would it matter to you?

    So if Russia went all in to help Biden get elected, would that change your vote, or does what Russia wants not factor in how you vote?

    Space Shuttle Challenger documentary

    My fourth grade teacher at the school at Rhein-Main (just occurred to me his name was Mr. Norvell) was one of the folks competing for that ride. I was stateside in Florida in fifth grade when Todd Bladel came into our classroom and told everyone the shuttle had blown up. I remember how stricken...
