The Trick

In other news, the Maryland Attorney General's Office is investigating Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner's real-estate business for "allegedly abusive debt collection practices' and poor property conditions. He's a slum lord.

Meanwhile, Speaker Paul Ryan says Mueller finding evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trumps won't distract them from cutting taxes for the rich. Of course not.

Finally, Politico has a very eye-opening profile of former Speaker John Boehner that I think is worth a read to understand how completely fucked up the Republican party is. There's a whole juicy section on the budgets deal that President Obama found a way to pass. I wanted to get into this today, but there was an avalanche of other news that felt more important. I may still go into it because there's so much there.

On an unrelated note, I don't know if any other casual gamers are reading this, but I binged Life is Strange over the weekend and I can't recommend it enough. It has maybe the most impressive writing I've ever experienced. The game isn't exactly new (it was released in 2015) but what can I say? My backlog is extensive.

I'll recommend Stranger Things Season 2 while I'm at it. It was a great continuation of the series that hit all the right notes, at least for me.

    The only reason the GOP exists these days is to cut taxes for the 1% ( see ultra rich). What other agenda besides voter suppression do they have?

      Well, cut taxes and also return the world to a feudal system where the rich have everything, the poor have nothing, a state of war is permanent and the church is the government.

        Funny you should mention it. I have always thought that Ayn Rand was just the Social Darwinist version of Thomas Hobbs. He was around during the English Regicides and and wrote Leviathan as the moral and political justification for Divine Right of Kings. His ‘thinking’ was that in the natural world, someone who can kill you and doesn’t kill you is someone who you owe your allegiance to because he didn’t kill you. It is therefore that persons right to rule over you and basically give you nothing and kill you later if it suits them. And you should have no complaint. He saw this is man’s natural condition and more than that could not be hoped for. He preferred the order of the Crown to the disorder of Parliament. Feudalism’s fascists.

    Stranger Things 2 was great, (Steve is my 80’s boyfriend now) and I finally got to watch a show the same time as everyone else.
