IFL vs. PFL Seems obvious to me that we should use the IFL because that's what the autistic people themselves prefer.

Thanx to sciamanna

America’s oldest communal passion: the ecstasy of sanctimony--Philip Roth
We're having another one. The poly dating site Ashley Madison was hacked, and lots of narrow-minded people are going, "Cheaty bastards have it coming to them!" bart_calendar attempts to reason with them.

The Republican Primary Reality Show appears to have an opening for a candidate who meets Lenny Bruce's classic version of diminished expectations: "Vote for me. I don't wet the bed." Gov. John Kasich may be such a candidate.

Thanx to Whatever.

The IMF says giving money to the rich actually hurts the economy; giving money to the poorest helps the most. As I may have said here before, "trickle down" is the wrong scatological metaphor. The right one is "Money is like manure: If you spread it around, it makes things grow. If you pile it up in one place, it just stinks."

You don't have to be as old as I am to remember when the bookstore chains were the Great Satan. Then Amazon came along to give us a new appreciation of them. Here is Sarah A. Hoyt, explaining that Borders killed itself and Amazon merely helped.

Content note: This being a Sarah A. Hoyt post, it contains a bit of Commie Menace Boogie Boogie. I believe she is a PTSD anticommunist, so traumatized by what Marxism did to her beloved Portugal that she sees it everywhere and thinks it's even worse than it is.

Thanx to File 770
