    The Impeachment Thread

    There was a suggestion in the Russia investigation thread to start a new one for impeachment. With the investigation now over and the SCO dissolved, the next phase begins. There is growing support among House Democrats and one lone Republican (Justin Amash) on starting impeachment hearings over the 11 counts of obstruction highlighted in the special counsel report.
  2. This is just a general rant. Over the past few months I have been traveling quite frequently for work. Flying is just an absolutely horrendous experience at this point. It is remarkable that in a country where a substantial chunk of the population is obese or overweight, seats on aircrafts have gotten exponentially smaller to squeeze more and more people into a single flight. The end result is a miserable experience for everyone involved. Yesterday on a three hour flight, I was squeezed into my already tiny seat because the passenger adjacent to me couldn't fit into her seating space. I had to give up about a quarter of my seating space to her. Most airlines have instituted policies for larger passengers of size, and countries like Canada mandate that such passengers be given a 2nd seat at no additional charge. I know most US airlines have policies in place to accommodate passenger comfort but I don't think this ever gets enforced. Something needs to change.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Why do you say that? It seems like the more NBA relies on analytics, the more likely it is that spacing and shooting become central to the game. Barring rule changes, I doubt we see an NBA that allows teams to feature someone like Ben Wallace. This team needs to start drafting well and getting value out of its draft picks. The biggest failure of the Wall/Beal era has been the downward spiral of poor FA signings patched through trading of draft picks. They need to first draft valuable role players and then use FA to patch in the holes or bring in complementary pieces.
  4. I was holding off on posting this because I wasn't sure where this dumb conspiracy was headed. But this has now reached enough of a mass popularity in right wing circles so here you go. Tl;dr: people are convinced that a Trump admin official who they have dubbed "QAnon", is posting subtle hints of a massive conspiracy on the 4chan board /pol. http://nymag.com/selectall/2017/12/qanon-4chan-the-storm-conspiracy-explained.html

    When I wrote the poll, I only asked if he should be impeached for obstruction as laid out in the Mueller report. Silly me doubted Trump’s ability to commit even more high crimes and misdemeanors in the future.

    Sorry, difficult to pick up on it these days.

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    Atomwaffen Division is a terrorist group. “Opposing the current political powers” is an interesting way of framing their recent spat of killings and hate crimes around the country.
  8. https://thinkprogress.org/trump-ichan-steel-imports-cf7deb8beaf0/ Insider trading 101. If the SEC still does what it's supposed to do, this should be a major scandal that demands an investigation. This is the kind of corruption that is a hallmark of oligarchies. Also might as well make this the trade war thread. It seems like the tariffs won't just be for steel and aluminum.

    Election 2020 The Non Presidential Edition

    Bernie should be asked how he will get Dem caucus votes for his completely unreasonable M4A proposal. In no universe is M4A passing with a Dem Senate that has Hickenlooper, Manchin, Warner et al.

    It is worse than that. The “missing DNC server” is a dumb conspiracy popular in QAnon circles. Somehow a completely insane fringe theory got picked up by Rudy and now Trump is getting impeached because he’s a fwd:fwd:fwd grandpa email come to life.

    Everyone saw it coming. “No quid pro quo” was always going to morph into “it’s perfectly fine” because only a dumbass believed “no quid pro quo” two weeks ago. Now with multiple government officials, inside and outside the WH confirming that this was basically a dumb, criminal scheme carried out by even dumber people, we end up with “nothing wrong went down”. ”Nothing wrong with it” isn’t going to work when majority of the public believes you did something wrong already.
  21. I actually like the mall, it's the best in the area. But there is just no easy way to create an urban-style environment when you sit on the intersection of 7 and 123, with enormous parking lots and strip malls, an above ground metro and poor walking access to essential amenities like grocery and convenience stores. Better off living in Reston/Herndon, paying lower rent for better accommodation and you can just drive to Reston Town Center or One Loudoun, both which are more enjoyable than Tyson's if you want a faux-urban atmosphere and you're still in close proximity to Tyson's office and major highways. Speaking of renovated mall areas, anyone been to Ballston recently? The new Ballston food space is actually really nice. Hot Lola's
