Don't you still have to pay for it?  I think that's Kid's issue, rather than hiding his whereabouts.

I don't know that it works in explorer.

I use Google Chrome and can read Wash Po articles via "open link in incognito window."

One of the benefits of having a slow connection is that I can just stop the article from fully loading, before the paywall kicks in.

The NYT is easier, as you can just hit reload as many times as you want if you stop loading too early or late.  WaPo is a little smarter and if you try to reload an article that didn't finish loading, it will send you back to the home page, where you have to click the link again.
But after you do this for a while, you get to know pretty well when to stop the loading process.

There's probably a cookie you can delete to reset the counter as well, I'd guess.  Makes more sense to keep the counter on your computer than on their servers.

Donald Trump understands;

There are about 1600 coal-fired power stations either under construction or planned, in 62 countries around the world.
Something like 583 in China, 273 in India, many in Japan, etc.
Yes, everyone's dancin' "coal"!

They've seen the folly of 'Paris' and the climate change/global warming folly.

Last year China canceled 103 coal plants that were approved and/or had started construction.  China has implemented a national coal cap to limit the amount of coal being burned (actually a cap on the amount of energy capacity from coal plants).  China is moving ahead with new nuclear plants, and making a major push into solar and wind.

When even China is bailing on coal, you know the show is over.
Not that it won't drag on for some declining decades.  India is probably not at a level that they have other options readily available.
Still in an economic growth over quality of life phase (ie pollute like mad to build up wealth).

Right now in the US solar is on par with coal costs, and if you add in all of the coal externalities, such as ripping open mountains, transporting coal, and air pollution, (not even to get into miner health), solar is cheaper.
 
In the US, cleaner fossil fuels (ie natural gas) have undermined coal.
The idea that coal could or should have a resurgence in the US is myopic or a cruel joke.  Also, no one really wants to be a coal miner -- it's a shitty, unhealthy job.  People in Appalachia want jobs. 

And China is a firm backer of the Paris Accords.
They believe in climate change and witness unhealthy pollution levels.
But it's a big, still largely poor country and has until 2030 to cap its greenhouse emissions.  But they are serious about meeting those commitments, and moving away from coal.

And even though Trump made a Big Show about withdrawing from the Paris Accords, each nation set its own target and these goals are voluntary.  There is no enforcement mechanism or punishment attached.  It's simply a general pledge to pollute less.  With the goal to stabilize planetary warming and attendant global disruptions.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/judge-says-trump-campaign-screwed-wording-confidentiality-agreements-025613573.html

Judge rules there are flaws in the confidentiality agreement:

Quote
“As an initial matter, the Court observes that the arbitration clause confines arbitration to ‘any dispute arising under or relating to this agreement,’” Bluth wrote, adding with emphasis, “It does not require arbitration for any ‘dispute between the parties’ or even ‘any dispute arising out of plaintiff’s employment.’”

Oops.

So much for that effort!

p.s. This one is not satire, unlike the one about the apology.

Kid, you and the other remaining GOP hacks are too flexible, with no fixed principles just a love of crime and tyranny and a need to debase and degrade the American identity.

It’s why you must be inflexibly and universally opposed.

Blow me.

Sometimes you can learn more clearly the mistakes being made by examining others' mistakes.

Does this phrase sound familiar, white people?
"I'm not a racist, but..."

"He is a sick f---ing tyrant... and we keep showing up and dancing for him... We just keep showing up and eating the lobster. Nothing changes."

"Don't fool yourself... That money we have is blood money."

"You know he has killed people in Ukraine? Knowingly... As a tactic to outrage the world and get focus on Ukraine. Remember when there were all those deaths taking place. A while back. About a year ago. Revolts and what not. Do you know whose strategy that was to cause that, to send those people out and get them slaughtered."

Will? Daddy is on the verge of being bumped off for Russian mob debts.

There is no one who actively supports or supported trump who is demonstrably above doing some killing. America believes the daughter over any apologists.

Good that you know when you are out of your depth. You will need to ignore quite a bit if you hope to maintain your pitiful bubble. It’s all because you have thrown in with scoundrels and betrayed what brought any goodness to your own life.

“Et tu, McGahn? Sad.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/18/us/politics/don-mcgahn-mueller-investigation.html

For a lawyer to share so much with investigators scrutinizing his client is unusual. Lawyers are rarely so open with investigators, not only because they are advocating on behalf of their clients but also because their conversations with clients are potentially shielded by attorney-client privilege, and in the case of presidents, executive privilege.

Don McGahn saw it coming, he knew Trump was gonna through him to the sharks so he jumped into a lifeboat after he opened the seacocks.

Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others.......

This from the fellow who wants the right to shut down media sources (NYT, CNN) that criticize him.

Kid

taking a play from the Trump/Repub playbook and just pretending this stuff isn't there will not work.

You will end up like our idiot president, babbling bullshit to yourself.

When the history of this sad chapter is uncovered and exposed, the cowardice and complicity of the Republicans will damn the traitors as the pathetic collaborators they are.

And the treasonous quislings should be executed.

And I'm serious.
