Chuck Todd will rename "Meet the Press" to...

"This is bad for the Democrats".

Every show is the same for Chuck:

Democrats launch impeachment -- "This is bad for the Democrats".
Democrats don't launch impeachment -- "This is bad for the Democrats".
Democrats fight back. -- "This is bad for the Democrats".
Democrats tweet that they like Baby Yoda. -- "This is bad for the Democrats".

Every fucking show is nothing more than a lame ass attempt to make Democrats feel bad about themselves no matter what they do.

Jimmy Hoffa

So, I was watching the new Scorcese film, "The Irishman", and I started to think. If we still had labor bosses like Hoffa around, would we still be dealing with this level of income inequality?

Yes, Hoffa and some other union bosses were corrupt, probably racist, definitely sexist, etc. However they did fight hard for labor's share of the pie.

Something tells me that Jeff Bezos would have to give back more than a few of his billions to his workers.

The Astros' sign-stealing setup may have been revealed in their World Series documentary

For the Trump theory that Ukraine, not Russia, interferred with our elections to be true,

then our ENTIRE:

-FBI
-DOJ
-NSA
-CIA
-State Department
-Bi-Partisan US Senate Intelligence community

All, and I mean ALLL, of these different groups of highly educated, highly trained, deeply experienced people who worked hard all through school and their careers to get to their positions, ALLLL of these people are wrong...

and Trump and Guiliani are right.


Do I have that correct?

No, no, no. You're not the Messiah.

Watching Bill Moyers with Chris Hayes is like...

watching a Master with his heir apparent.

Is Greta Thunberg a Time Traveler?

When 16-year-old environment activist Greta Thunberg isn't busy challenging global leaders to reduce their carbon footprint or mobilizing young people to strike for the climate, she's...time traveling?

That's the consensus on social media, at least. Savvy users dug up a 19th-century photo of a girl who looks eerily similar to the 21st-century teen.

Warm Cookies Are Served By The Bucket

Can someone quickly summarize today's hearings, 11-20-2019, for us cubicle dwellers?

I'm seeing bits and pieces, and I need someone to tie it all up.

Thanks in advance.

My humble solution to the massive housing crisis in some large American cities

Make more cities like LA, SF, NY, etc. People want to live in more urban settings where goods and services are within walking distance, where there's greater social interaction, where there's human diversity, where there's art, music, dance, etc.

In economics, there's the law of supply and demand. Demand for living in an urban setting like SF or LA or NY seems high. So, why is the supply so limited?

--ON EDIT--

When I posted "make more cities like LA, SF, NY, etc.", these new cities do not have to be in CA or NY. They can be any other state in the union, PA, MD, VA, W VA, etc. People want to live in cities not isolated suburbs.
