It would be an astonishing coincidence if he posted that today and didn't intend it to be a tie-in to the Medicaid story.

In any case, I'm aware of what their argument is. I find it dodgy on principle, and more to the point, contrary to what they actually care about.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

Good point.

I don't know who "they" is. I am personally tired of seeing millions and millions of dollars spent on homeless services that do nothing to actually address the situation, but instead not only make it easier to perpetuate the situation and attract more and more vagrants to my area, all while creating more and more 6-figure government positions and Non-Profits for their friends. The Military Industrial Complex is going to seem like an anthill compared to the burgeoning Homelessness Industrial Complex.

We can take this offline or to a non-humor thread.

President Donald J. Trump, 6'3", 239 pounds.   NFW, mofo.  I'm 5'8" 240, and there's NO WAY Trump is more svelt than I am.   Muscle is heavier than fat, granted, and I'm jacked*, but still. 


* Not jacked, under any definition of the word.  None.

Regarding the update of Toto's classic *vomits on to keyboard song Africa, maybe we need to change other things, like Neil Diamond's song America.

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves."

"The quantity of money becomes to an ever greater degree its sole effective quality. Just as it reduces everything to its abstract form, so it reduces itself in the course of its own movement to quantitative being. Excess and intemperance come to be its true norm."
