I posted about this in the fake hate crimes thread. It is a great story.
Yep. Dr. Strange was great. Didn't love the attempts at humor, though. Fell flat and didn't really belong. Or were at least the wrong style. Stoner/trippy jokes would have been better.
I watched the first Episode of Arrow this season and that turned me off to all the CW superhero shows. I had watched all of Arrow, Flash and LoT until now, but the risk reward ratio seems too low. Arrow has a good stretch in the early middle and Flash and LoT were occasionally fun, but it got to the point where I would watch each time hoping it would be o.k. rather than expecting it would.
I am sorry no one here paid attention to this. Despite getting a lot of attention from Guardian readers and Glenn Greenwald, it turned out to be a hoax article written a a parody and planted by a trolololol. So it really was a fake hate crime.http://heatst.com/world/satirist-claims-he-tricked-guardian-into-running-fake-alt-right-confessional/
On the assumption that turning someone into an alt-right racist is a hate crime - fortunately, the author had some sense and caught xirself in time: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/nov/28/alt-right-online-poison-racist-bigot-sam-harris-milo-yiannopoulos-islamophobia?CMP=share_btn_tw
Yes. And, in any event, I did mis-remember. The Democrats didn't lose their Senate majority. They only lost their ability to break a filibuster, which is why things played out as you described. http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/01/20/coakley.brown/
My recollection is that by the time actual, rather than theoretical or promised Obamacare, had come to a vote, the Democrats had lost the Senate (after Ted Kennedy died and was replaced by a Republican), largely over Obamacare. But maybe I am remembering wrong.
I didn't mean capability. I meant policy.
I've also been told that the strikes were from over Lebanese airspace and that Russian AA cover for Syria doesn't extend into Lebanon.
IAF strikes in Damascus?!?! Would this require consent, or at least coordination with Russia? I would have assumed Russia would say "no". Or am I mistaken on one or both accounts (i.e., the IAF doesn't care about Russia or Russia doesn't care enough about Hezbollah)?
