    I heard the tail end of that report on NPR last night and didn’t catch the airline name. Shit, I was going to book my flight today on American. Small hometown airport, limited airlines service the airport. Maybe I’ll be driving this year....

    In the "gee, I'm shocked. No really." category:

    Vladimir Putin announced on Wednesday he would seek re-election in March 2018, as opinion polls show he should win comfortably.

    Anyone following the gay wedding cake situation? Shit is fascinating. Way more going on than I thought based on the shit media coverage.

    There was no refusal to sell a cake. It was refusal to decorate in a specific way... which is art... which is speech. It's on par with asking a muslim baker to decorate a cake with the face of Mohammad.

    I'm sure most folk are sick of all the Donald Trump talk, well the New York Times ran a couple of interesting articles today...

    Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O. Program
    https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/12/1...arry-reid.html

    Apparently the study of UFOS was in our military budget.

    How was it asked to be decorated? How is that different from most weddings where the bride wants the cake to look a certain way? Why has this not been mentioned by a single person until you and now?

    This man is starting to become a threat to Vladimir Putin enough of a threat to take note of, if something big becomes of this in Russia the chain reaction could be immense globally, he has galvanized a huge amount of people, may cause big waves next year. could expect massive protests if this man is not allowed to run.
    To be honest I don't know why Putin has not done more to 'sort him out' already.
    but don't expect Putin to leave without a fight if it does become intolerable for him, problem is that fight could be very violent. Putin knows he will end up with a rope around his neck like Saddam Hussein or Muammar Gadaffi if he loses power and people find out how much money he has stolen from the Russian public.

    I just hope this new guy stays alive and do what needs to be done. Then we can get rid of the asshole at the White House.

    Holy shit, Hawaii just got an actual missile threat warning on the news and on their phones.

    Confirmed that it was an error, but the videos showing what was on TV when it hit are fucking terrifying: https://twitter.com/bubbaprog/status/952246857933221888
