Make politics boring again. I want to be able to check Sunday papers, watch the news a few times through week, and casually read WSJ. Not wake up listen to four podcasts to ensure world isn’t burning

Please don’t

It feels like a lifetime ago that I could go an entire week without seeing, hearing about, or thinking about the president. Time was that you’d hear a clip once a week or so about a trip abroad, or a leader who was hosted here, or taking a working vacation at Camp David, or progress on some legislative initiative.

Gods, we were young then.


That’s cool, M2, until newly slack environmental regulations mean you’re choking on air, unable to drink the water, etc.

Uggh, I heard 0-3 goes really well for elections

I think all reasonable people would agree it’s not appropriate to impeach him for the same facts/events. But if he did something new today that we the people felt was a high crime or misdemeanor, then he absolutely should be impeached. The Senate’s (disgraceful) acquittals are not carte blanche to go do more bad acts.

To bring it back to the criminal law analogy, just because you were acquitted of all charges for embezzlement doesn’t mean you now have free rein to commit armed robbery for the rest of your life.

Hi all. I am licensed in life, accident and health and am looking for new opportunities. I’ve been working in employee benefits in a small brokerage firm on a book of business of over 400 clients, I’m the only account manager. We’ve had 100% employer retention since I’ve been here. I am a high performer, but not sure I’m valued much at all . I want to reach the top and become partner in my career ; this is why I went to work for a small firm.

Somewhat related to salary negotiations but say you receive an offer but you want to wait until a 2nd offer at another company comes in before responding to the 1st — what’s the best way to delay/stall — or be transparent without making the 1st offer company feeling like the 2nd choice?

MA insurance coverage question. Client insurer is trying to close out a claim where insured was reasonably liable and insurer paid out the claim. Insurer sent a general release to claimant.

Any healthy fish take an omega-3 supplement? I don’t currently take one but thinking about it. Not sure it would be beneficial tho because I’m a healthy 43 year old female with better than optimal triglycerides and cholesterol levels.

I'm starting to grow concerned that so many auditors don't seem to know the difference between the UAE and Palestine, which are entirely different countries. One of which has a large history of war with Israel. One does not. One just signed a peace agreement with Israel, but it wasn't the one stuck in a decades long war. One constantly is under threat of having land annexed by Israel, but it isn't the one in the peace agreement, and Netanyahu has already said this agreement doesn't alter plans


The co-founder of the federalist society, who called the Mueller investigation “unconstitutional,” just wrote that Trump’s tweet seeking to postpone the election is fascistic. And argues that it is grounds for his immediate impeachment and removal. Holy sh*t, when you lose the Federalist society, then you REALLY messed up.

The heart of totalitarianism is xenophobia and unchecked nationalism.

That was the message behind 1984 by George Orwell, based on his experiences fighting fascism in the Spanish civil war.

Do you think his warning is relevant today?

A Capitol Police officer has died as a result of injuries sustained when beaten over the head with a fire extinguisher by one of Trumps adherents.


Another day, another opportunity for Donald Jabroni Trump to drag more grown adults to the Land of the Unhinged.


Stating the obvious

Normalcy has returned because Twitter took away Trump's loudspeaker with which he spread lies and hate. People haven't felt this normal since 2016.


Raise the bar!
