Women helmed the three most exuberantly prosperous and enlightened eras of my nation.

Elizabeth I
Elizabeth II

The UK prefers a a queen over a king any day. I don't know why. We just to seem to feel at our proudest and best when there is an impressive lady representing us.

I'm not sure if the same thing would apply in a democracy, however...?

Didn't the GOP have a childhood?

If, by now, it is not *crystal clear* who belongs on your ignore list...

Just look at the front page of GD.

I strongly advise the avoidance of the "I have no-one on my ignore list" policy. The magnanimity of those of you who adhere to this strategy is not reciprocated.

Oh, the KARMA! Is anyone else pleased by the random flailing of the GOP?

Isn't it nice to see their inherent hideousness actually resulting in awkward, nasty consequences for them for a change?

"I'm comfortable with it."

What a grotesque phrase.

It's always uttered about something perfectly ugly, masquerading as a legitimate defense. As if personal comfort is a political position.

It's nearly as vile as the use of "loser" as an insult.

I have come to a resolution.

From now on if anybody anywhere says "I'm comfortable" with some thoroughly idiotic position, I will be responding like this:

"Ah, yes... I'm comfortable too, with the idea that you're a nincompoop. In fact, all the soft, sensitive, fleshy parts of my body are oozing into position around the idea that you are an insensate nitwit of no consequence. Hmmmm, there goes my ass-crack around your soft, pliable non-thesis. I'm drifting away.... mmmm, so comfy! Like a long, hot, steaming bath. I'm bathing in the mild, satisfying irrelevance of your ideas... Just so relaxing! You could market your opinions as aromatherapy, you know. They're of such negligible pertinence minds would go numb at the first sentence. Ahhhhhhh. What were you saying? I can't hear you above the imaginary radio next to the soap dish emanating warm, fuzzy, wry observations regarding your insignificance. Whoever you are."

There was never any advantage to compromising with the GOP.

The reason being - there was never any advantage to the GOP in actually compromising with Dems. In reality, the only strategy available to them, if they wanted to preserve right wing ideology, given the nature of the coming demographic shifts, was to play endless games of chicken.

They knew that from the start.

So did some of us.

Assemble, DU nerds!!!!! Describe this thing to me...

from this site...


How many can you get? I think I'm missing about 7 bits...

$trillion coin....



So we need 20 Republicans.

Who are good bets? Who should be mailed and phoned?

Spanish Cave Paintings Discovered to be Some of the Oldest in Europe

"Cave paintings at the Altxerri cave system in the Basque region of northern Spain are about 39,000 years old, making them some of the oldest in Europe, Popular Archaeology reports.

A team of French and Spanish scientists analyzed the paintings, which include images such as the bison shown here, as well as finger marks, a feline, a bear, an unidentified animal head and more abstract markings. This early dating of these images puts them in the Aurignacian Period, believed by most archaeologists to be the first flowering of modern humans in the region, although whether or not there were still Neanderthals in the area at this time is an open question..."
