The Proud Boys rally in Oregon... not everything it was cracked up to be.

But they're still assholes, even when there are not thousands of them.

By any fair appraisal - brilliant, yes.

"Fair" defined the same way President Trump and Fox News define it.

We get it, Kid.

He's right.

But it is a surprise to hear him speak out, albeit a pleasant one.

Thanks for educating, Red!
You asked.

Not you he didn't, but we don't expect reading comprehension from you.
YankGuy asked Barton
“Are you arguing that the state should criminalize the consumption of alcohol by expectant mothers?”


Exactly.

He asked Barton what Barton meant.

Your answer has nothing to do with it.

See what I mean about reading comprehension?

Even when you correctly identify what happened, you still can't figure out how to respond to it!

The Tongass has been in the crosshairs for some time.  I remember making a donation to protect it back in the eighties.  This is a battle that has to be fought over and over.   

There are too many people on the planet.   Three billion is sustainable, maybe,  but any measures to get us there are simply taboo topics.   So we'll keep making babies,  who will grow up and want wood furniture and houses, unless we find some other natural rigid fiber that can be grown on massive plantations with high per-acre yields.  But logging rainforest makes less than no sense,  with only short-term gains because you can't just grow another crop.   It's basically loot and pillage agriculture.
That damn Christopher Columbus. Native Americans before him pillaged and looted but, by golly, they didn’t bother the trees!

Ever notice that unless we spell out the point, Ward cannot figure out what the point is?

Whereas, if we spell it out, he only misses it about 70% of the time.

What a weird time it is when I start agreeing with everything George Will writes.


Josh,  I hope your sister and niece/nephew are doing okay.

Thanks, Barton. I appreciate it. My niece recovered first, mostly, since she was the spreader in this instance. Both of them are past their quarantines, but still have some strength and lung recovery to go.
