Re: Grown-Ups Only Edition

I also wanted to chime in here and say that while most of the people here will think Mis. Hays either evil, or horrible, or what she is saying unconscionable, I would like to say that some of what...

Re: Iraq By the numbers

I do think that the facts on the ground have changed to a large extent, which makes setting a timetable for drawing down troops seem like a reasonable outcome. So if there was a compromise that said...

Re: The Inefficient Market Hypothesis

Thanks for putting pretty words to my comment. I agree 100%.

Re: Iraq By the numbers

Do you favor a gradual draw-down over the next 2 or 3 years, keeping our foot on the brake and seeing how the security situation goes? Because I can't tell from what you're saying whether this is...

Re: The Inefficient Market Hypothesis

So unlike the religious fundamentalist, there is a kernel of truth in the stance of the market fundamentalist.

Let's not take me too far out of context. Whether or not there are kernels of truth...

Re: Iraq By the numbers

I appreciate your response (sort of) but it suffers from the tendency amongst people who hate Bush to fail to distinguish between the politics of reversing a domestic policy and reversing a foreign...

Re: Iraq By the numbers

Way to make your point quite well. And I'm glad you brought out that nice little piece of absurdity by the state department. You all read that right, the State department is touting it a success...

Re: Iraq By the numbers

I think a number of factors (some good, some bad) have made an eventual end to the civil war a real possibility. These would include: the success of ethnic cleansing in increasing the homogeneity of...

Re: My Dingalink of the Week Prize arrived!

One thing the book already has done, however, is add another data point supporting my theory that depth and breadth of intellect is inversely proportional to penmanship.

If that's true then I'm a...

Re: The Inefficient Market Hypothesis

I hardly think he is predicting doom, rather that the market fundamentalists (like Megan) will someday be given as much intellectual respect as the religious fundamentalists. I don't know about...

Re: Dec. 4?

I agree, too much delay although I thought this one held up pretty well despite being from the distant past.

Re: Melting Into Air Edition

This is a good point as Democrats have been trusted more on the economy for a long time now and now Democrats are more trusted on the deficit. No matter how much loyalist conservatives want to...

Re: Melting Into Air Edition

If there are hard times, people will be thinking more about how to get the train moving again (i.e., tax cuts)

Exactly, and then when the economy turns around we can cut taxes again in order to...

Re: Iraq By the numbers

See Yglesias for more of what I'm about to say: http://matthewyglesias.theatlantic.com/archives/2007/12/the_long_haul.php

This is what the surge all boils down to. Do you want to commit to a...

Re: Avatars, post counts, member levels

I think we should move up as contributers, starting as Ann Althouse, moving through Johah Goldberg, Mickey, Bob and of course the pinnacle, Ezra Klein.

I doubt there would be any objection to my...

Re: Goodbye to All That Green

First off, I could find your responses if you would reply to my posts instead of burying them. I assume the normal rules of deterrence apply because there is no evidence that they don't. The burden...

Discussion Side Story

I'm with you GarbageCowboy. I'm a threader (or a Jet). Been a threader since I could type and will always be a threader. The Linears (the Sharks) are disorganized loons and should head back to the...

Re: Goodbye to All That Green

I don't trust my sense of trust with politicians. I think it is created for us by media narratives even if we are aware of them and attempt to censor them out. But I can't deny that that sense is...

Re: Goodbye to All That Green

Agreed. But that's why I don't see any point to torture. What good is it to force our prisoners to do something? Torture is not worth a few propaganda victories. You confuse me as I thought you...

Re: Goodbye to All That Green

Two things.

Your understanding of Strangelove seems fairly pedestrian to me. The film, on one level, was about the self-fulfilling nature of making your enemy out to be scarier than they are. We...

Re: Goodbye to All That Green

Agreed. And that's exactly the rhetoric that should be employed to make the point that pressure should be exerted. Talking about 10 hidden nukes is counter productive to say the least. Although I...

Re: Goodbye to All That Green

Your choice I guess, but I'd urge you to think about it a bit more. And ask yourself if you've ever seen any actual evidence that torture works.
