Howard Dean should retract comment that the Donald might be a cokehead. In bad taste. Plus no known drug can make anyone such a dickhead. - Laurence Tribe

how stupid do you have to be to use a phone traceable to your family in a bomb?

Not sure who exactly this would be for, but there was a regular commenter at zerohedge who dropped off the map a couple of months ago. It was a severe blow to my politics, foreign policy, and military information intake. The guy is/was really knowledgeable and a great writer too. I learned so much over the past couple of years from reading his comments. Anyway, after some googling today I just found that he is still a regular commenter, only now at moonofalabama (which I knew - sort of a breakaway crowd from the old billmon blog - but never read religiously.) So happy to be able to read his thoughts again. His name at both sites is PavewayIV. Google can find his words with " pavewayIV" (and then you can click on Search Tools and then on Anytime to narrow the time range so you only find recent comment threads.) Worth a look if you're interested in geopolitics and suspect that the US MSM might not be teaching you what you should know.

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....
