I'm worried that I'm going to overplay this song, but it hasn't happened yet. Enjoy.

Impressive. I chuckled.

Not always - some people are just really bad at it.

Holy shit, they don't sound very good but goddamn that is impressive. Whoever made this happen must be extremely knowledgeable.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm not very well read in this area, but it seemed like Reagan and Thatcher had some very similar views. While perhaps Reagan was sort of a George Bush figurehead who had his minions do most of the dirty work, he was nonetheless a figurehead of some extremely damaging and regressive controversial shifts in policy. When he died, there was none of this celebration, but an outpouring of sympathy.

I found the UK's reaction to her death kind of odd. It seemed as though Reagan and her were viewed in a similar light by similar groups of different societies.

I'm a big fan of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. However, the entire highway 101 and highway 1 route is spectacular all the way down the pacific coast.

My pictures don't do it justice

I was thinking this was a #history post, and an article from the 60's or something. Holy shit.

I'm not saying the North Dakota thing is acceptable. It's not, it can endanger peoples lives. The point I was trying to make (and wasn't very clear about) is that this sort of legislation won't be effective in stopping what they want to stop. The only thing it accomplishes is putting mother's lives in danger in the case of an emergency, and making it inconvenient for women to get abortions. No matter your view on abortion, it accomplishes nothing.

Right, but does anyone have a solid grasp on the future of economy and work? Plenty of people have opinions, and are skilled enough to persuade you of their validity, but my gut feeling is that no one really has a fucking clue what's going to happen. And that's why I think it's such an interesting discussion.
