It's a wise move.

Smile in your mugshot. Fix your hair. Dress well. Whatever is in your power, do it.

If you are exonerated, or pay your debt and move on, or live it down, or if you're guilty as hell and not sorry, or anything in between, it doesn't matter. There's no outcome where a sullen mugshot is preferable over a smiling mugshot. In any imaginable scenario, the sullen, whipped dog look in most mugshots doesn't help you. If you're going to have a photo of you spread all over, on a million websites, a photo whose copyright you have no control over, do whatever you can to look your best.

And if you are guilty, a mugshot that some on the internet disapprove of is the least of your worries.

If you're anything less than 100% in favor of whomever can WIN, then you're saying you'd rather have four more years of Trump unless you can get a womxn, poc, lgbtq prez. Fuck that.

Don't care if it's an old white man. Don't care if they're rich. Don't care if they're a talk show host or a CEO. Whatever it takes to win.

If you're telling me that we shouldn't ever compromise our lofty goals and deeply held values just for the sake of winning, then why the fuck did I vote for Hillary fucking Clinton of all people? I didn't like it, but I did it because winning matters. So now don't give me any shit if it turns out the one who can win is an old rich white man. Not saying it has to be an old white rich man, but if that's what it takes, I'm in. No reservations at all.

Nobody will explain what they would be saving the filibuster for if they are afraid the Republicans will take it away. If Republicans would take it away over Gorsuch, then why won't they do it over any other future nominee? If fear of losing it is going to hold the Democrats back, it's tantamount to not having a filibuster option at all.

The only reason the Republicans don't want to take it away is that they would miss it when they're out of power, and they might want to cling to some vestige of legitimacy. But those reasons are their own. Whether the Democrats use the filibuster or not has no bearing on their reasons for wanting to keep it.

So use it. If you can't use it now, then you can't use it ever.

If they install their Justice by removing the filibuster, after their Garland coup, that's just one more nail in the coffin of their illegitimate rule, from their popular vote loss to gerrymandering to Russian influence to Comey's shenanigans. It it worth it, to hang on to power for another year or two, and then have to answer to the voters?

Besides which, when Democrats get a Senate majority, Republicans would have no power at all. They couldn't say no to anything. What's not to like?

Block Gorsuch. If it works, great. If not, the consolation prize isn't so bad.

It's true that older people are quite safe drivers. They get injured a lot because their bodies are fragile, but they don't cause the crashes. Stop lying about old people. Stop lying about Millennials. Stop lying about other generations.

And it's not a question of whether Darcy was drunk. If she's a duck passenger, it's how drunk was she?

I like Kristin Stewart no matter how much she looks like she smokes a LOT of the crack.

Like a reliable witness would buy a ticket to ride on a duck boat. Nice try, Darcy.

So where do these guys all shop now? Do they get all their UnderArmour coffee at Hobby Lobby?

Yeah anytime the anarchists are doing anything bad, a good scolding is all they need to set them aright.
Mar 15 Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn commented on The Guardian: Spokane Is Such a Shithole, College Basketball Is the Only Thing Keeping Everyone There from Committing Suicide.
I could have said so many worse things about Spokane than this Guardian article even begins to touch on. If Gonzaga is the hook you're going to hang your Spokane hit piece on, you have to at least mention the comically overpriced tuition, third tier academics, and considerable negative impact the entitled frat boy culture has on the sea of poverty that surrounds the campus. Topped with an insulting veneer of smugly superior Catholicism.

Spokane thinks the reason their faith- and free market-based solutions to their crime and violence and addiction keep failing is... Seattle. They think all their tax money is wasted on liberal social programs in the "ghettos" of Seattle while Seattle's felons are shipped to Spokane when released from prison. Spokane should be a paradise, but for the west side holding them back. Why do the data say it's the other way around? Liberal conspiracy, fake news, and lizard people.

I won't go on. Spokane is definitely a shit hole.

Huh. Since nobody cares about Trump's tax returns, the only reason Rachel Maddow could bring the world to a standstill with a tweet and draw a record audience is people, folks they're just out for anything to break up the monotony. Yeah. That's got to be it. There's been too much winning! The whole country is tired of winning!

Yes that's it. It's so simple a child could understand. So sick of winning they will even watch Maddow! Why didn't I see it before. So simple. It all fits together perfectly. The fools that mocked me at the university I'll show them I'll show them all everything makes sense now can't you see! Can't you all see the winning it's all winning everywhere listen damn you all listen!
