"A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything."

Right in your backyard, automatic voter registration moved a step closer to reality this week and didn't even get a casual peep. Surely driftglass could have shortened his Thanksgiving fantasy conversation and mentioned that the state senate overrode Rauner's veto of the original bill. If the house does the same, an estimated 2 million voters could be added to the Illinois rolls in 2018, just in time for Rauner's re-election.

Winter is coming.

We'll try to keep the campfire warm out here in California for our compatriots. Left a tip for the good bourbon your pour.

Thank you so much for coming right out and saying what I've been trying to write everywhere I go on the internet: don't buy the bullshit about some white working class uprising. They got the same 60 million votes they always get, even given the increase in population since the previous two elections. It's a strategy to consolidate their race based power right now when doing so is really important to them, with a sideline of maybe getting us to water down our progressive platform and dissipate the fervor we were generating in the primaries, all in the service of attracting voters who hate us and will never vote for our candidates. If you are so driven by revenge that you just voted to kill your own health insurance, I don't think I can afford to have you on my team. We said it was a bad idea when we saw the Republicans invite them into their party, so how can we think it's a good idea to invite them into ours now? I know Democrats are known for shooting themselves in the foot, but can we please just not pick the gun up this time? It never ends well when we do.

When it comes to the big "M" ban.
Cheer up, he never said he would make it apply to the 2nd largest shareholder of FOX. Saudi Arabian Prince Al Aweed.

None of this immigration cleansing shall apply to "Cuban's invading Florida and their wet foot dry voot" policy to be able to stay in America.

See how they can hang that "make America Great" hat on this strong empathetic good will from Trump.
I think some of our problems are because we are like the Divergent" from the movie.

Or perhaps a study needs to be done. To find out why certain people are only responding to their GOP marketing. Like those marketed for the iraq War and others didn't buy it but had to pay for it anyways. And to think of their whining of paying for ObamaCare.

Next time you watch some of those big pharma commercials. Where if you think you have a light case of allergies. Ask your doctor about "Allergpoint". (then a long list of internal bleeding, blood clots, brain tumors, arms falling off) warning may occur but ask your doctor for it. These effects occur to live people, Ask your doctor if you are alive and Allergpoint is for you?
TTell me, why doesn't these marketing ads work on some and not others?

Thank you for this podcast. It went a long way to helping me deal with the knowledge of the clusterf**k heading our way and how to prepare for it. And let's get one thing clear--the mainstream media is not our friend. Hasn't been for years. They let Trump get away with things that would have sunk any other candidate. Then again, this isn't the first time they've tried to normalize such a disgusting piece of human waste--they did this with Bush too.
