The Israeli-Palestinian conflict basically boils down to one thing:

A group of people who believe their imaginary deity promised them a piece of land, which just so happened to serve a major trade corridor during the Bronze Age. That’s what the religious zealots are fighting about: their interpretation of a “promised land.”

Ladies - how have you dealt with your SO’s mom being stand-off (ish)? For context, my SO and I have been dating for some time, come from different cultural and religious backgrounds. Neither one of us is religious and we value each other’s cultures. His dad is very open and takes an interest in us. His mom keeps it to small talk, mostly “how you been” and that’s it. Recently found out his mom has concerns and thinks I would make him convert to my religion. Not sure what gave her that impression

How many rounds of interviews do firms usually do for laterals?

If relevant, I’m being poached by a partner that just joined from my current firm so my understanding was that I’d be fast-tracked.

I am starting to think that Ford has the right idea when he pardoned Nixon. The amount of time and money we are spending on the investigations into the former President is obscene (as we’re his actions). Nothing will come from these investigations other than the further division of our country on political and ideological lines. E cannot heal unless we look to the future and stop relegating the past.

I currently believe that the Republican position on the debt ceiling is equivalent two people agreeing to drive around fast in a car. Person A, who is driving a car really fast turns towards a cliff, speeds up and put a brick on the Excelerator, jumps out at the last moment the person in the passenger seat goes to try to stop the car and then person A (republicans) blames that person for the accident and not the person who had been driving up in to that point. They both have some blame but…
