It doesn’t look like there’s any news out there — not our kind, anyway — so we’re on our own. Your Curmudgeon therefore declares another Intellectual Free Fire Zone.
The Iowa caucuses are tomorrow. Wanna talk about that? The Republicans are trying to pick someone who is opposed to everything that’s been going on for the past seven years, and the top candidates seem to be competing over which of them is the most fanatical “social” conservative — something that appeals to a lot of Iowa voters. The Democrats are trying to choose between two socialists, one of whom proudly admits it, while the other may soon be indicted for her handling of state secrets.
Aside from that, we’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, whatever — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters.
We now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it.
