It's an interesting article for sure. Lots of Obama bashing, which admittedly rubs me the wrong way, but there are still some salient points made here.

It can be painful looking back and being critical of better days.  The Left is pretty much fracturing to pieces over here over Blair's legacy.  And I've not much time for the man, but he did some good things for the country that some on my part of the left ought to do better to remember.  I notice it a bit with Obama too, some want to be scathing as f***, which I can understand, but don't forget before (Bush) and certainly see how much worse it can be now.

Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

We went from 40th to 1st in economic growth during his tenure as mayor of denver + governor of colorado. I've only been here over four years but it's been insane to see and been really impressive to live in the state/city with the lowest unemployment rate in the country year over year.

Was a lot of that growth tied to the marijuana legislation?

The curve got markedly steeper once that passed but it was already heading in the upwards direction. Denver (and Colorado) is an incredible place to live and offers a lot for the people that reach for it. We were always going to be popular, the weed stuff just made it that much more enticing and profitable. It's pretty much ruined the fast food industry though which admittedly is something I could give two s***s about anyway.

Man, thought Beto was/would be a popular choice. :lol:
Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal: "From impending tragedy to near-triumph via the most improbable route possible - 95 minutes that neatly encapsulate 130 years of football on this particular piece of grass. Newcastle, United, will never be defeated."

Sir Bobby Robson - What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses or the marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

He will be. Part of that article talks about him being dangerous because he could win.

Y'know, if nobody tells him that you need to do more than tweet 'VETO' for it to happen, he might just assume he won and stop paying attention.

I haven't been paying attention really. Warren aside is there anyone that's basically Bernie but 10-20 years younger?

Elizabeth Warren is pretty Bernie-adjacent, I'd say.

Warren is kinda sorta the reason we've got Katie Porter in our lives now and as far as I can tell she's been decidedly on message for the last 20+ years.

I know we should file this under trolling, but I was genuinely a bit shocked by that. Is that legit?
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.
