Speaking of FEMA, is there any word of them going to NorCal?
But...

He is right. They cant support PR long term. They cant juat fix their infrastructure. They cant fight the hoarding and mishandling of aide..

He wants to pull out FEMA almost right away. That's far from long-term. And FEMA isn't even supposed to do long-term help. It's supposed to do short-term. Give people food, medicine, clothes. No one expects FEMA to rebuild their houses or pay the medical bills.

And he said that where?

Or was his tweet that "they couldnt stay there forever"?

You kind of were, but let's ignore that for a bit and focus on the tweet.

Apparently FEMA responded to it, saying that they were going to stay with Puerto Rico. So, woohoo, I guess. Still not sure how they're going to handle this along with NorCal, if at all. I don't have a lot of trust in them after Katrina.

Honestly, this whole "everyone to the right of me is a Nazi!/everyone to the left of me is a communist SJW!" bullshit feels like this is a pretty simple thing to figure out. It's the goddamn extreme Alliance fans vs extreme Horde fans all over again. Each side is convinced the "story" (media) is biased towards the other side, while their side is getting the spiky, four foot shaft. They've pushed the fringes so far out that even those people who agree with them, but not to the same extreme extent, aren't true fans of the Alliance/Horde, but plants for the other side.

This has had the amazing side-effect of making the moderate opinion ("yeah, the Alliance/Horde has problems, but they're not that big a deal", or worse, "both sides are getting the spiky, four foot shaft!") this huge expanse. And from the extreme edges, everyone who is not in their camp (which is moving further and further out there) must be just as bad as the guys who are way the hell out there.

...and all the while, the moderates are just getting sick of the extremists insane bullshit. It just depends on which side is being louder and more hostile at the moment.
As Grackle said, it gets even worse when there are actual neo-nazis and communists muddying the waters, so the moderates have to qualify their statements even more than usually do. Since saying "No, those with whom you disagree aren't nazis/communists." doesn't really cut it when the clashes in the streets involve protesters chanting Nazi slogans.

That's not to say we shouldn't still strive for calm and order over rabid factionalism/tribalism. It's still, in my opinion, anyhow, a noble aim.

And also, did William McKinley really deserve to get shot?

Are Republican voters dumb or just filled with self-loathing? Looks like the latest fulfilled campaign promise is going to hit them hard.

How will they spin this one to try to say it's Obama's fault?

A prison healthcare contractor with 660 malpractice suits under its belt recently let a guy die of meningoencephalitis because they thought he was being lazy. They get funded a flat rate per prisoner and get to pocket the difference if they don't use it all.

I've been thinking. Throughout my life, I've often heard some variation of, "I don't respect President X, but I respect his office as president of the United States."

But I'm not sure I respect the office anymore. You know? Some jerk plays the game, gets in with the parties, works one system or another to get elected regardless of ability/experience/mental capacity, and after being elected proceeds to expand executive power beyond the point his predecessor left off... a practice he is allowed to do thanks to the historical progression of the office of president.

And maybe that's how it has to be; maybe that's the only way it can work. But that doesn't mean I have to respect the office. Grudging tolerance is NOT the same as respect.

No. I'm pretty sure I can't respect an office that produces Clinton, Bush, Obama, and then Trump back-to-back.
