I see life like a mirror
And I see life so much clearer
We move so quickly
Who knows where the time goes
Where does this road lead?
No one knows, no one knows
Listen to the single heart beating
Rhythm for an ever-changing song
I see life with surprise
And I see life, oh, in your eyes
Take all your troubles
Put them in a common file
Light a fire with reason
Watch it rise, watch it rise
Listen to the single voice singing
Lifted in an ever-growing song
I see life without anger
I see life all together
I see life go on forever
Life goes on forever
Life goes on

I'm not pretending to have the answers, but it seems to me that compromise might end up being just as self destructive as using Republican bad behavior against them.

Trump might put forward a raft of traditionally left wing legislation that he requires help to get through a Republican house. It might be difficult to find excuses to block half of it.

Science / "The Case AGAINST Dark Matter"
« Last post by shnozzola on Today at 10:05:52 PM »
I can't say I understand it, but here is the latest......

Quote
Many experts have called Verlinde’s paper compelling but hard to follow. While it remains to be seen whether his arguments will hold up to scrutiny, the timing is fortuitous. In a new analysis of galaxies published on Nov. 9 in Physical Review Letters, three astrophysicists led by Stacy McGaugh of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, have strengthened MOND’s case against dark matter.

The researchers analyzed a diverse set of 153 galaxies, and for each one they compared the rotation speed of visible matter at any given distance from the galaxy’s center with the amount of visible matter contained within that galactic radius. Remarkably, these two variables were tightly linked in all the galaxies by a universal law, dubbed the “radial acceleration relation.” This makes perfect sense in the MOND paradigm, since visible matter is the exclusive source of the gravity driving the galaxy’s rotation (even if that gravity does not take the form prescribed by Newton or Einstein). With such a tight relationship between gravity felt by visible matter and gravity given by visible matter, there would seem to be no room, or need, for dark matter.

That is all very nice verbiage about being liberal and open minded and free thinking but you remain a nonintervention-est
I don't really understand what you're trying to get at here.  I was saying that we shouldn't use Republican bad behavior as an excuse to behave in a similar manner, so I don't see why you would conclude that this is "non-interventionist".

Are you kidding me? Waiting for them to compromise! My mother had a saying for that "you might as well hold your hand on your ass."
When did I ever say anything like that, stuffin?

Not stooping the their level as you call it, just changing tactics to get the results I want.
You're basically talking about doing the exact same thing that the Republicans have been doing all along.  You might be able to fool yourself into thinking that's not stooping to their level, but I know better.

As Grasshopper once said, "when in a den of rattlesnakes, you must become a rattlesnake."
This is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard.  When you're in a bad situation, you have to maneuver to get leverage and then act decisively to take advantage of it.  You aren't going to be able to beat a rattlesnake by trying to act like one.

Yeah. And it came right on time. It was sort of perfectly bitter sweet for an album coming the same week we elected a fucking twitter troll as our president.

It tripped me out. I took Phife's death like he was a family member so hearing new verses from him got me square in the chest. All the feels. Like I've always been kind of ambivalent about the addition of Consequence. But on this, it felt comforting. I also came away wondering why Tip doesn't do more one off productions. And I liked seeing Jarobi stepping up. All in all, it's pretty great.

Yeah I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised because I wasnt expecting too much but it was a fresh throwback to better days of our genre. A few nicely placed features too.

The Common album wasnt bad either

Tax payer money isn't used for abortions--Hyde Amendment. Planned Parenthood receives funds for the same sorts of services that other providers receive federal dollars for. Furthermore, cutting Planned Parenthood would result in more unwanted pregnancies not less since it would limit access to contraceptives.

Please, this is the Trump Era, no logical thoughts allowed ...
