Otherwise reasonable people (people I personally know)

saying REALLY stupid things on FB...

“I begin with the young. We older ones are used up but my magnificent youngsters! Are there finer ones anywhere in the world? Look at all these men and boys! What material! With you and I, we can make a new world.”
― Adolf Hitler, Hitler's Letters and Notes

"Scary. Sounds like the far left manipulation of the young today, i.e., crazy media, public school indoctrination, etc."

I get so mad when I read SHIT like this. There is no helping these people. They are lost to me.
Look you stupid fucks....they just don't want to be killed going to school, or even go to school in fear of BEING killed.
It's so hard to believe you idiots(repugs) are too stupid to realize that.

Please help me understand something about self-driving cars

Why in the world would we want these vehicles to take jobs from people who need them? This isn't Star Trek people. We don't live in a utopian world where all our needs are taken care of by automation.
So, please help me understand why normal, average Americans would want these cars and trucks to be available, notwithstanding the safety issues.

For me, this is a WOW moment....

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) urged President Donald Trump and his lawyer on Sunday to stop flailing at special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and to let the probe continue unimpeded.

"When you are innocent … act like it," Gowdy said on “Fox News Sunday“ when asked about Trump's repeated Twitter attacks on Mueller, whose probe has become increasingly perilous to the president and his inner circle. "If you’ve done nothing wrong, you should want the investigation to be as fulsome and thorough as possible."

"This" guy telling it like it is....now that is shocking to me.

Did anyone else listen to Da Mucch on NPR this morning?

It was hilarious. Even Scott Simon had to admit, after the segment was over. that it was like a job interview for his old position. When asked about the PGIC and his stand, or lack thereof on recent Russian missile videos, Scarramucci said something to the effect that he was "keeping his powder dry".
If you can stand it, it's a good listen.

NPR's Scott Simon talks with Anthony Scaramucci, former White House communications director, about the announced departure of his replacement, Hope Hicks, and this week's other political news.

Texas Wesleyan University baseball coach won't recruit from Colorado

The response he got from coach Mike Jeffcoat that shocked him.

The coach said he's no longer recruiting athletes from Colorado because of the state's pot-friendly drug laws.

He went on to write that players from the state have had trouble passing the school's drug test. So, they've made the decision not to take a chance on student athletes from the state.

Jeffcoat wrote, "You can thank your liberal politicians. Best of luck wherever you decide to play."
