I come not to bury c99 but to praise it.
Having been called an asshole by one of our communitarians provides the impetus to comment. Sob, sob (I feel better now, thank you). Sticks and stones, et cetera.
But please take into account several confounding variables, as they say in statistics land. One is, as mentioned the climate change induced by the Klown Kavalcade. This in my limited sensibility will be the most fun of 2019. The ultimate Dem nominee will certainly be a Debbie Downer (or more likely a Hillary Downer). At that point, I may consider getting my passport renewed.
The second point, which has been under-appreciated to date, is the presence of a communitarian who seems to be pro-Trump. For which reason I say, hurray for us, c99. The fact that such an individual and perhaps others as well, are tolerated here is a glorious statement of this site's civility. Sometimes pro-Trump sentiments produce snide remarks from others here--but they have not crossed the proverbial Red Line (or, as we used to have, many of us, the Orange Line).
My most recent foray into community annoyance has been about Trump playing the Dems for the complete fools that they are. Unfortunately, as my admiration for El Trumpo grows in respect to his political genius, my contempt has grown apace because of his--yes, I'll say it--deplorable policy decisions. Talk about being conflicted.
I can't wrap my head around Trump in any way which translates to my mental coherence. To remedy the situation, I have grown a second head, hoping it will do as well as the first one.
Thanks again, JtC, for all you do.
