“Be careful you don't catch Agema, everybody -- not many health insurance policies cover treatment for that. It is a fatal disease -- to the brain and soul.”

“I salute the fortitude of these writers, and am encouraged by the growing number of people world wide who are uniting in outrage at these abuses of power. But I am afraid I must add this cautionary note: does anyone really think we are capable of constraining the largest, most secret web of intelligence organizations in the history of the world? I wonder if this battle is already lost. It may develop that the only way to fight them is to change our use of personal technologies, in order to become more difficult for these organizations to track our lives. Are we willing to stop tweeting?”

“Think of the almost incalculable number of times this man must have been rejected, insulted, or rebuffed by women. It's no wonder he hasn't a shred of decency left in him. And, of course, he would blame them for that, too.”

“well sure there are only so many times a grown man can relive swirlies and crushing rejection before he goes all to pieces but as someone ointed out,he has money and there is always therapy.”

“"The idea that police can obtain such a rich treasure trove of data about any one of us without appropriate judicial oversight should send shivers down our spines."
True -- but that presumes that the great majority of Americans actually have spines.”

“First of all, this is about unemployment benefits, NOT welfare, and if you conflate the two, it speaks volumes about your ability to understand this issue. Second, I happen to know someone, a life-long hard working person over 50, who tries every week to find work, and is frustrated by the flat economy and the predisposition of employers to look askance at people over 50. I don't think you live in a fantasy land, but it wherever it is, it is overrun with cynicism.”

“Seems we're seeing a bit of that Oz Macho I was talking about. Look, I was trying to push back against the absurdity of the "10 reasons" format (10 Reasons Why Breathing Is Good For You, 10 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Live On The Moon, etc.) by trying to point out that Australia is not paradise. No place is paradise. Surely you would admit that every country on the face of the earth is a mix of good, bad, and indifferent. Peter Weir is a great filmmaker; Baz Luhrmann is a fraud -- and they are both Australian. That's life. Should we only talk about the wonderful things? I'll say it again: lighten up. Apparently deadpan humor is not your thing.”

Banjo Patterson on Dec 7, 2013 at 18:43:53

“Finally....that's all you needed to say in the first response. It wasn't me being macho. It was me asking you to clarify. It really wasn't that hard was it? If that was humour then I'm hoping you don't make a career out of it.”

“"A failure to grasp the historical character of racism is not merely a recurring problem for conservative racial thought, it is its defining quality," Chait concludes.
Amen. Don't let Cruz, Boehner, et.al., get away with pretending that they were (or are) on the right side of history. When push comes to shove, they will always be for limiting the rights of non-whites, whether they be majority or minority.”

Unpartisan on Dec 7, 2013 at 19:37:28

“This wasn't a racism issue. They opposed Mandela because he helped direct bombings against civillian targets. That is what we call terrorism. The man turned his life around in prison, and apartheid was wrong, horribly wrong. But we should never tolerate terrorist attacks on civillians, and that includes when our own government does it as well.”
