Gavin Newsome signs into law rent increase caps....to help solve nothing at all, really.

Meanwhile, Turkey has already begun a military offensive against the Kurds in northeastern Syria.
Sounds like someone somewhere is making a lot of money double-dipping in military hardware.

My first thought as this Turkish aggression was reported last night was what that must be like as a Syrian Kurd to now see F-16s dropping ordinance on you instead of in your defense.

Only a matter of time before Graham and Trump have another golf trip.

What's really amusing (in a shafenfreude kind of way) is how this is spurring more vocal GOP pushback than anything else Cheeto has done.

Yeah, especially because Graham said the other day that he'd move to block anything impeachment related.

But this is his line in the proverbial sand, apparently.

Maybe Shad isn't familiar with the extent of Weiss' idiocy, but being aware of such exploits, I came to the conclusion that Shad has some tacit understanding, and that is why he chose to exhibit that take as "from the NYtimes" and not to post the link to her column.
I've actually never heard of Bari Weiss in my life. As a matter of fact, when I saw your post after mine I had to Google her name.

Do people actually believe that he cares about the Kurds?

He cares about his political donors that are department of Defense contractors. So of course this is the “line.”

https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/a ... omen-book/
While the president has publicly faced allegations from two dozen women, this book reveals another 43 allegations of alleged inappropriate behavior, including 26 instances of unwanted sexual contact. In this exclusive excerpt from All the President's Women, Levine and El-Faizy investigate an alleged wave of unwanted touching that preceded his proposal to Melania Knauss, including a disturbing instance of groping at Mar-a-Lago.
I would have guessed higher.

The shooting incident in Germany was a terrorist attack on a synagogue. The shooter livestreamed on Twitch, and two people have died.

I wouldn't really expect most players to give a **** about the HK protests. Adam Silver is being a dodint for the owners, as that's his job as the commissioner.

But, right, that answer from Kerr is the definition of gutless. The dude has branded himself an enlightened social commentator, pleading ignorance is not the way to go.
What a world we live in where he’s considered gutless because he didn’t give an answer on this. Maybe he is, but he’s got a pretty long history of being pretty smart.
