It's too bad. I admired them back when they spent their time puncturing too-funny-to-be-true urban legends. (The guy who JATO-bottled his car into a cliffside, for instance, or the poor diver whose charred remains were found high in a burnt-out tree after a forest fire.)

117 The entire paradigm of fact-checking in the political sense is stupid anyways. Most statements have some amount of nuance and don't easily fit a binary true/false assessment. You can't treat "Politician A says Bill X won't raise the deficit" the same way you treat "Did Rod Stewart really have to go to the hospital to get his stomach pumped because he downed three gallons of semen?"

Sure, some political statements are blatant lies. But a lot depend on which numbers/projections you use.

After I convinced their foes that this structure was a peace offering, the Trojans happily accepted it and brought the horse within their fortified city.

203 O/T - Had a great experience with smartphone insurance today.

When I was on vacation, I dropped my phone and cracked the screen. When I got back, I filed the claim to get it repaired. The deductible was $29. I was then able to schedule someone to come out to anywhere I specified to repair it.

They guy came to my work today to do it. Turns out, he couldn't repair it at that moment because they gave him a defective part. He told me for my inconvenience, they are just going to give me a brand new phone for the same $29 deductible. I could have had it brought to me today, or wait for overnight shipping and receive it tomorrow.

I was so pleasantly surprised at the level of service.

Yes, the puppets in congress do as they are told. The real action is in the media, social and antisocial. This means the entire congress with a few notable Republican exceptions.

This means that the media Have three arms of the government: congress, Supreme Court and the Deep State. The people only have the president.

That's a more optimistic outlook than I got, that people are so damn greedy that they'd rather die in comfort and miss out on their kids starving than deal with the alternative.

You may be right. I can't argue it. I just instinctively doubt it, because I'm sure that people suck.

212 "80% of the answer was correct, and it's only the one additional number that was a mixture of truth and falsehood."

right ... so when I say "I spent four years in Vietnam rice paddies, fighting commies" ... that is 80% true ... all the words are correct, except I really spent zero years, zero days ... in Vietnam. But only the number was wrong. Mostly True.

But Biden adds in more wrong things ... who cares? It's just Joe.

The "debates" would be pure comedy gold. Not even the media would be able to help him with the answers flashing on his teleprompter and fed into his earpiece. He'll go off on some tangent about burnt toast suits and a rubber dingy named Fred.

236 Nice strawman you got there, Snopes. No one is saying a solider doesn't exist. We're saying Biden got all of the details wrong. These details seem to change from recitation to recitation - it was a navy officer, it was an army solider, it was a burning humvee, it was a fellow solider shot who fell into a 10' ravine, it was a 60' ravine, etc. If the narrative is as impactful as Biden says, then he doesn't get nearly the entire story wrong in the re-telling, and the story doesn't change so drastically depending on which version you happen to hear from him.

238 TX killer had also called 911 and FBI with some rambling complaints, right after he got fired, just before the shooting (one source said). Makes me wonder if they had a bolo for him and that was why they pulled him over ... that report said the employer had also called ... the cops, iirc ... somehow complaining about the guy after firing him.


We do need to stop crazies from getting guns ... but it needs to be a certified thing, not Google analytics. And safeguards against taking guns from all of some ideology ... like "whack a doodle tea party members are all crazy, can't have guns", or whatever ... so of course that is a recognized problem.


idk if "red flag" really addresses that ... seems more like it overrides due process. Most of the nut cases had longer history so a single call from a neighbor would not be enough (he put out a Gadsden flag ... take his guns")
