    this, is future Erich.

    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    In every way except location and scale.

    You know, or should know, as well as I do that the shenanigans the social networks themselves get up to make CA look like some lawn signs.
    Well, not in terms of impact or intent. I mean, ultimately, it's really just about advertising dollars, whereas CA were most definitely not.

    It's basically just facebook now, with this.

    The same lithium required for EV batteries? Their fault for putting their country in such a valuable resource...

    Also, aren't the CIA/Deep State busy trying to bring down Trump?
    Phew! That the Cia is watching out for the status quo gives me a quantum of solace. I.E. Fiction is based on reality and vice versa.

    Well, I did say "to be fair" about this one specific instance of authorities and cops being anal about some minor code. You should come to Switzerland for many such delicacies.

    In regard to US cops and their quaintly trigger happy and often bafflingly retarded ways in general, then no, the US really is in a league of its own there.

    In the run-up to the 2016 election, White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller promoted white nationalist literature, pushed racist immigration stories and obsessed over the loss of Confederate symbols after Dylann Roof’s murderous rampage, according to leaked emails reviewed by Hatewatch.

    Bob help me, I watched some of the hearings today. Dems were calm and organized and questioned effectively, and Republican members were shrill and yelly and spun conspiracy theories with their time. Their lawyer who did a lot of the questioning was much more reasonable, but still seemed to be working overtime to Imply Implications rather than defending Trump's behavior on the merits.

    Day 1: No Alarms and No Surprises, except for some new testimony about Trump's direct involvement with making demands on the Ukrainian President.

    So when are the Dems going to summon Rudy, or hold people in contempt of Congress for ignoring subpoenas? I mean, there's no point issuing subpoenas if you're not going to throw your weight around.
