Re: Brett Kavanaugh threw ice on someone in 1982

I honestly don't care at this point about the usual libertarian "objections", because there isn't a much more principled alternative to him but whoever the Dems accept instead, if they realise their electoral ambitions in November. Like much mainstream libertarian thought at present, it amounts to ...

Re: Today in stupid

The Kavanaugh hearings. Republicans want Kavanaugh's accuser to testify. She keeps stalling, and then they push the vote back further. Now today, more sexual misconduct allegations have come out of the woodwork at the 11th hour. In all these scenarios, everyone was supposedly drunk at the time, deta...

Re: Today in stupid

Agreed. Hopefully, he comes back around. While secession is probably the only realistic option, I'm reluctant to cede any more territory.

Re: Today in stupid

The Alt-Hype's new video has caused quite a stir. I'm curious as to what you guys make of it. Most reactions from the Alt-Right seem to be negative so far (not really surprising). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yx5lABaziSM Here's what I wrote.

Re: What would a free market in transportation look like?

It seems reasonable that there could be more trains. I always thought they were more efficient and not as complicated with regard to revenue collection compared to private roads.

They like to repeat old news every once in a while and pretend it's some big revelation, usually to make sure there is a constant stream of negative Trump stories.
