Just be grateful that you exist at all. ;)
I didn't ask to be born in this lousy world!
Or any other world for that matter.
Well, there is a nice little planet at the far end of the galaxy that I'd be okay with.
It's very cold and lonely on Hestonia. So I've been told.
On Hestonia, the sane man is king. But is surrounded by the insane, so … meh.

Mildly interesting interview with Grand Dragon Tucker Carlson. The reason I offer it up is as further evidence of neoliberalism's eroding appeal, that reality is intruding too harshly on free market eden's faith even on the right. None of this suggests a turn to the left but that ideas of community and responsibility and regulation might be infecting the right. Which can turn into Progressive Era-style reform, which was classist and racist at its core, but the idea that even on the right some might be questioning the blind faith in free markets would be valuable because it would better validate left criticism of the same, too. Amusingly, too, Carlson smells bit Marxian in his suggestion that talking about Trump's personality is a massive distraction from conversation of more structural points.

The original New Deal was fundamentally just for whites, so there is precedent. Good book on that topic is Ira Katznelson's When Affirmative Action Was White.

i was worried i wouldn't get to really experience the existential dread of nuclear war that has shaped some of our stalwart posters here:
The Trump administration just announced it will officially withdraw from an aging nuclear missile treaty with Russia, a move that could kick-start an arms race and threaten the European continent — but also allow the US to better prepare for a war against China.
cool!

from: https://www.vox.com/2019/2/1/18206619/i ... mpeo-trump

Addendum: the argument for leaving the treaty rules
Other experts are equally passionate that leaving the agreement was long overdue. The main reason, they say, is that America should have these weapons if other countries won’t stop building them.
they're literally just arguing we need to get into an arms race
