    Yay! A democrat from the hellspawn caucus. Yep. That’s what we need. More hellspawn democrats in the Senate.

    A very, very, very, large number of civilian activist casualties, followed by a media-lapdog propaganda blitz that Goebbels would have admired.

  • Ahhhh! Elizabeth Warren is all steamed up about something team D did? And people are…. Just this. Nothing more.

    Having said all that, you still have to weigh whether such a diffuse generation scheme really makes more sense than large, concentrated solar power plants in optimal, tropical locations, together with HVDC transmission lines. This option may very well make greater economic sense.

    Now if we’re talking elevated solar over the roadways…that’s a different question.

    Yes. Exactly that. I’m sure a fairly cheap, light frame design could be developed for exactly this purpose. In the end, the biggest problem would be making them stable in high winds, which would require suitably deep and solid concrete foundations, but nothing more. The main issue is being given the use of the ground above the road for nothing or a nominal fee. Once you have that, the project could rapidly make economic sense.

    But building solar generation into the road surface itself is a non-starter on a huge number of levels.

    What about “hellspawn Democrats” – for instance Wasserman-Schulz, or Hitlery herself? Do any in the survey self-identify as “hellspawn”?

    The home isn’t the only part of the estate that can be seized, and there are legal repercussions for attempting to transfer assets to avoid seizure.

    Exactly. Any such action would be transparently obvious as an attempt to avoid “estate recovery”, and would be rapidly determined to be illegal, risking additional costs besides the estate recovery [...]

    I’ll quote the whole passage.

    V. Are There Any Exceptions to an Estate Claim? A. Surviving Spouse: The state is prohibited from recovery while a surviving spouse of a deceased MediCal beneficiary is alive. However, after the surviving spouse dies, recovery may be made against any property received by the spouse through distribution or survival, e.g., [...]

    Sorry, but your proposal sounds like a legalese fairy story. Try that kind of crap with the authorities and they’ll run over you with a freight train. Stop selling false hope stories of how you can “get around” this rule. You know it must be bollocks. So why are you promoting it here? The only [...]

    The spirit of truth visited me too. What a coincidence.

    I was told that Putin also killed St. Princess Diana, and plotted the Kennedy assassination. Fogh-Wolfowitz is particularly mad about that. I was unfortunately sworn not to reveal any of the evidence I was shown. But trust me…

    Wow, why yes. How we will thank those 45 senate-heroes come the day they stand firm against that Putin supporter! How we will throw ourselves down at their righteous feet, and beg forgiveness for all those years we shamelessly mocked and derided them, when in fact, the oligarchy they represented only wanted the best for [...]

    Second that. Truly superb writing. The utterly uncompromising and clear thinking of Debs versus today’s hackery makes a sad contrast.

    But perhaps the 1% party is losing steam now? Maybe they’ll even have to resort to full-on election fixing (like their not-friend, Vladimir)? Risky strategy in the US, maybe.

    I’m not sure how this does help that, though.

    Paul is clearly not of purest hellspawn. He represents something genuinely different. It would be interesting to see what he could get done. But most of his positions put him at total variance to crony capitalist interests across the government and international business. To many ordinary people, he could appear far, far better than any LOTE candidate.

    The problem for Paul is that he strays so far from the Uniparty line on some issues dear to their hearts, that they’ll go to absolutely any lengths they have to (you know what that can mean) to stop him.

    No point thinking of him as Demopublican or whatever. He’s not of purest hellspawn. Therefore, he is a potentially enormous threat.

  • As a general aside to everyone. As far as I’m aware, Edward Snowden does not have a college degree. What most degrees are worth these days is, of course, another issue. After all, both Obama and his predecessor have them in abundance. But. If you want to see a real intellectual, engaging in deep reflection, [...]

  • Good for Obama if he likes art, architecture, and literature

    But this is the problem Stewart. He doesn’t like any of them. He likes to wear the clothes of one who does like them, though. He wants to appear to be the intellectual, and is probably convinced he knows something too because of his raging, out-of-control [...]

  • But the one obvious difference between Obomber and Bushie is that Obomber’s self-regard knows no upper limit. It’s hard to believe Bushie ever took himself seriously. He loved baseball and discovered one day that pretzels were dangerous. He loved clearing brush. Obomber sincerely believes he’s clever. In fact, he’s sure he’s the smartest guy in [...]
