Re: The Cost To Be the Boss (Adam Serwer & Eli Lake)

Re: The Cost To Be the Boss (Adam Serwer & Eli Lake)

Oh BTW it's important to know why Ethiopia invaded, they didn't do it out of a duty to prevent "a militant Islamist government control a port country." They did it because the entire eastern half of...

Re: The Cost To Be the Boss (Adam Serwer & Eli Lake)

Yes, the ICU was a militant Islamic group who sought to install Islamic law...but who cares? Somalis ARE Muslims; they are very proud of this. Any legal system WILL be based on Islamic law, that's a...

Re: The Cost To Be the Boss (Adam Serwer & Eli Lake)

Adam is 100% right about Somalia.

Re: Communitas: Continuing the Race Conversation (Glenn Loury & Amy Wax)

Glenn is just a deeper thinking on this topic, he was constantly making a point that Amy misses. Race discussion shouldn't start and stop with listing off 'black cultural dysfunctions' and saying...

Re: Culture War on Islam Edition (Adam Serwer & Eli Lake)

This just completely fails. (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/30372?in=52:00&out=54:00)

1. Al Qaeda isn't the Islamic equivalent to Muslims as the Catholic Church is to Catholics.

Re: Science Saturday: Gulping Down the Potion of Health

Razib Khan... Why the hell is this fool even on here? The guy is an amateur (make that professional) racialist.

Re: The Fall Season of Western Civilization (Matt Yglesias & Alyssa Rosenberg)

Re: UN Plaza: Ambassadors' Row

Re: oh come on!

Such vitriol for a wonderful Diavlog. I enjoyed it and find that the only person who has "no ability to form a cogent sentence," is yourself.
