    Wait, wait, wait, I thought if you throw money at problems they go away? :confused: If the problems don't go away that means you just need more money to throw at them, no? :confused:

    Yep. And the last additional tier of benefits (EUC) will expire in December, barring Congressional extension.

    You listed a single incident from this year yet you said you heard it was big in DC in borderline areas 5 years ago. Either it was happening all the time and is a serious problem or it is not. You can't have it both ways.



    I have no idea how to even address your ranting much less any inclination to take any of your babbling seriously

    Excellent comeback, let us all know as you work your way through the stages. You appear to be on stage two, so you have a ways to go.

    Ah.

    Separately, allow me to point out that you do not know what I look like, unless you are NSA.

    My avatar is awesome though.

    There was a time in my life when Yglesias' blog was taken as gospel. :lookaround:

    Manton, it defeats the point of your CE ban to turn this thread into a CE thread.

    This happened to me about 25 years ago in Berkeley/Oakland. Then again, maybe the kids were just good at spotting somebody deserving of a beatdown.

    When I run into the brick wall of lib stupidity-denial, and the shameless ignorant lying that must accompany it, old habits reemerge.
