Open Thred 2-10

- In short, compared to other parts of the country, we don’t go to church that much. Not that we aren’t spiritual, we just as a region don’t go into churches. And, we haven’t for a very long time.

Hey NFL, Seattle is Gay!

– I don’t know if Lee is going to have a larger piece but on Twitter he noted this piece about the legislature moving to make localities take marijuana businesses.

The good news is that we haven’t yet seen any evidence that the US is doing this. On the other hand, we’re very good at outsourcing our dirty work when we need to, aren’t we?

– Whatever snow related fun we had over the weekend, I’m certainly glad not to be on the East Coast right now.

    There are no words.

    These people are psychotic. They lie to each other, to themselves, and to anyone within earshot.

    This is how Fascism looks up close. These people would happily murder 2/3 of the country to prove themselves right.

    EvergreenRailfan spews:

    With the recent accidents hauling crude oil by rail, naturally the railroads are taking a hit in the press. The Association of American Railroads, and the tank car builders are working on new standards, and there is a backlog for orders for new cars based on tougher standards adopted in 2011. This is a traffic line that they lost to pipelines before, won back, and this time will not give it up without a fight.

    Liberal Scientist is the "Most vile leftist on this blog!" spews:


    I’m sure the set of people defined as “Violent misogynist” and the set of people defined as “child molester” have some serious overlap.

    “Christianist”, “Teahaddist” and “Tallibangelical” would also define sets with serious overlap with the first two as well.

    “Catholic priest” as well. I recall a lot of the Madonna/whore dichotomy in Catholic school.

    I love Venn diagrams, especially higher-order sets. So cool.

    Carl, no plans to write at length about the moratoriums and the pending bill. Sharing these links on Twitter is about all I have time for these days. One of these days, I’m gonna hit the Powerball!!
