“are we less safe because our efforts at obtaining resources cheaply, disregard for other nations sovereignty and general overall hubris have created more enemies than we had before?

that our 'war on terror' is misguided and perfectly designed to make the world view us as their enemy? that the policy of 'yer either with us of agin' us' is a false dichotomy that creates animosity?

that the concept of 'american exceptionalism' is the opposite of nuanced understanding? we have the moral/ethical/practical high ground because, uh, we just do?”

“these statements always avoid the real question, 'why do people (men AND women) think that thin is more attractive.

the answer is, all else equal (no famine, etc.), thin is apparently younger and NOT OBVIOUSLY pregnant. this gives a better chance for the new set of shiny genetic material that jumps on that bandwagon to have reproductive success. the rest is just 'fashion' and only relevant for time it takes for the fashion world to think up something else that is shiny...”

“the messaging is FUBAR, the message is if your insurance stays as is, you can keep it. the trouble is insurance is, was, and WOULD BE a moving target without government intervention.

the problem is that the roll out of 'obamacare, aca, sanity in insurance, whatever' was soooo inept it's unusable. people are uncomfortable with the unknown and need reassurances that this thing will work. so far all they've gotten is 'it'll get better' and that is not very reassuring...

this is 'windows vista' on steroids and they need to get out the jolt cola, the pizza, the macintosh/apple team and fix it. yesterday would be better than next week....”
