re: Obama's Farewell Address and what you will remember him for. - The Spleen
I really shouldn't be baited into responding to a Tillman post, but here's some evidence to the racists Trump's campaign attracted and gave a voice to. There are many other articles like this that have been written since the election. [link=(http://m.indyweek.com/indyweek/in-wayne-county-nc-trump...

[quote]they just really hated them some Hillary and would've voted for an AIDS infested needle before they casted their vote to her. [/quote] I have no love lost for the Clintons, but one thing this election opened my eyes to was just how hated they are, especially her. I knew there was a lot o...

[quote]The fact that people on the left really think that's why he won is the reason he'll likely win again in 2020.[/quote] I never said that's why he won. I said it was a central theme to his campaign. ...

re: Mall looks empty - The Spleen
THey have attempted to block some of them, but police have dispersed them here and there. Security lines are taking a little longer than expected. But reporters that have covered other inaugurations are saying it's a really light crowd. This all according to various Twitter feeds of people the...

re: I've got to hand it to Barry, he's really being cordial - The Spleen
[quote]You're shocked a career politician made a hollow, politically-neutral statement?[/quote] Let's call it what it is. Hillary is only there because her husband is a past President. Were she not married to Bill, she wouldn't be there. ...

re: I've got to hand it to Barry, he's really being cordial - The Spleen
He's always carried himself with dignity and class. The night before his 2009 inauguration, he hosted a dinner in honor of John McCain. Today's behavior from him should not be a surprise to anyone that's paid attention to his tenure. ...

re: Obama's Farewell Address and what you will remember him for. - The Spleen
[quote]If I had to bet, I'd say things will only get better moving forward.[/quote] No, it'll get worse. Trump's entire campaign fed off the paranoia and angst of the white man that feels his country has been lost to blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, etc. Those people are are on full display righ...

re: Can you criticize Trump without melting? - The Spleen
I got all my melting done the week after the election. I don't think it's all that unreasonable to be concerned over an incoming president that has no political experience, has shown at times a lack of understanding of the role of President, and has surrounded himself with people of questionab...

re: Common Core Math - The Point of it All - The Spleen
[quote]However, mental math shouldn't be forced.[/quote] They don't try to force it. They still teach the old way, or at least the schools my kids go to do. It's providing an alternate method to simple math problems. Some kids will get it and use it, some will still use the old method. [quo...

re: Excellent Analysis of the Fake News process, Re: NYT, Perry - The Spleen
Where am I defending the journalist? I said it was a lazy article with a weak justification for its theme, and I stand by that. Fake news to me is something completely made up. He didn't make up the quote to craft the piece. He jumped to an awful conclusion from a real quote. So yes, bash away...

re: Excellent Analysis of the Fake News process, Re: NYT, Perry - The Spleen
[quote]In my opinion, there is a major distinction between subpar journalism and fake news. [/quote] Agreed. It's a lazy article with a weak supporting quote for its theme. It's fair to discount it and be skeptical of its conclusion. Unless the quote was simply made up, it's not fake news. ...

re: Excellent Analysis of the Fake News process, Re: NYT, Perry - The Spleen
Yeah, that's not "fake news." Shoddy, lazy reporting maybe, but not fake news. They got a quote from an energy lobbyist that both advised Perry in his 2016 presidential campaign, and worked on Trump's transition team. It's safe to assume he talked shop with Perry somewhere along the way. Perhaps...

re: When ACA Is Repealed will Insurance Premiums go down? - The Spleen
Depends on how it is repealed. Right now, they plan on repealing it through budget reconciliation. Doing it that way can't fully repeal it though, and the parts it can't repeal are the insurance regulations. So premiums would likely drastically increase absent a replacement plan, or setting the repe...
