Brexit! Obviously it's massively complicated and I don't think anyone has a real grasp on what the ramifications will be. I think this article is an even handed look at the range of possible economic implications, and it shares (mostly) my general pro Brexit feeling at least insofar as it represents a strike against the clearly failed policies of neoliberalism (failed, that is, for all but the very top of the economic ladder.) Interesting times and all that....
explain to me why we cant vote with our phones yet?
more or less only of interest to former residents of providence though he was a larger than life character in general.
When I heard the news that Buddy Cianci — serial felon, wearer of atrocious toupees, revered and reviled former mayor of Providence, R.I. — had died on Jan. 28 at the age of 74, my first thought was not about death. It was about my birth as a writer.
Any candid opinions on Nader's spoiler effect on the 2000 election? Wiki seems inconclusive. i voted Nader in NJ where Gore was a done deal and i thought bumping Nader's numbers would help get a message across. My second disclosure is that I'm onboard with HRC this round. My rationale is we need to bring our biggest stick to knock down the opposition on election day and I think that's HRC for better or worse (i'm not blind). I dont think Sanders can beat any of their top 3 in a general election. so i guess there are two points embedded in this post.
