We are watching Seattle literally eat itself over the Amazon tax.
The wonderful thing about spending a weekend not working is that one has time to think about things. Which, technically, is working after all because I make my bones by forming opinions about things about which I have spent time thinking. So I guess I spent the weekend working after all. In addition to battling the lawn into submission.
Nevertheless, after thinking about some things, specifically the Iran Nuclear Deal, I am puzzled about the Iranian reaction.
After the whole “Death to America” spectacle in the Iranian Consultative Assembly, what happened? Did Iran automatically announce that they were unilaterally withdrawing from the agreement? Isn’t that what you would think that they would do if they really believed that the US abrogating the agreement was harmful to it?
Politics as usual means that, whichever side of the aisle you think has your best interests at heart, Congress will on the one hand try to pass laws that are clearly Unconstitutional because they believe that people who vote for them will like the law, while at the same time refusing to pass laws to fund Treaty actions that leave Military Aircrews basically abandoned on the ground in Russia.
Yes. That Russia.
The 100th Episode of Plausibly Live has Dave wondering why the Air Force even bothered to put out a 231 page report debunking the Roswell UFO Crash story? Reflections on 100 shows and the future, as well as tomorrows important episode of Constitution Thursday. Oh… and a really amazingly stupid Gang Banger…
Bobby Jindal will announce “soon” that he is running for President. Why? Given how hard the GHOP is working to alienate its base with things like TPA, it seems like a long shot for them to win the White House anyway. Which has Dave talking about all those internet stories about “This is the One that Will End Hillary’s Chances” which won’t do anything of the sort.
The Council of Concerned Citizens, a well known White Separatist organization, supposedly influenced Dylan Roof. They deny that, of course. But did you know that they got their 501(c)(4) status? democrats are complaining about that republicans “have made it harder” for the IRS to revoke their status, after the “so-called Tea Party” scandal at the IRS.
Modesto’s City Council votes to go ahead and put Measure A on the ballot. But not until after some illegal fireworks.
