Senator Franken and Aristotle. Five women have now accused Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) of sexual harassment.

In my previous S&t observation, I mentioned the senator's remarks on the first accusation that he wasn't exactly sure how that incident could have happened.

I supplied the answer: Practice, Al. Lots of practice.

When it comes to vices and virtues, Aristotle had it right: it's a matter of habit. [Ronn Neff]  Ω

The Daily Caller reports: "Study: Satellites Show No Acceleration in Global Warming for 23 Years" (by Michael Bastasch, November 29, 2017).

The report itself is here.

Does this mean that all that anti-CO2 legislation can be repealed? Naaaah.

What this report proves, Scientifically ('cause we all believe in Science, right?), is that the legislation passed before 1987 has WORKED! It's got to stay in place. Who knows what would have happened if it hadn't been passed?!

And, you know, maybe there's something we can do that's even better. Because (let's say it together), "There's more to be done." Even when we don't need to do anything. [RNN]  Ω

In the new tax bill, some taxes are reduced, and some deductions are repealed. Do the calculations, and you will learn that some people will pay less in taxes, and some will probably pay more.

But there are two things that are certain about taxes, and you don't need any calculations to understand them: (1) Eventually taxes will go up; and (2) you will never, never get those deductions back. Never. [Ronn Neff]  Ω

Al Franken says, "I need to be much more careful and sensitive in these situations."

Does that mean that next time he'll make sure there's no camera around?

He also says, "I've thought a lot in recent days about how that could happen." "That" in this sentence means "groping women." May we make a guess that may help him understand? "Practice, Al. Lots of practice." [Ronn Neff]  Ω

Thanks to Al Franken, John Conyers, and Bill Clinton, we can say with certainly that Roy Moore is eminently qualified to serve the American people in Congress.

He'll fit right in. [Ronn Neff]  Ω

A little noticing from Virginia. In 1993 Bill Clinton (D) became president. Later that year, Virginia elected a Republican governor. Clinton was reelected in 1996.

In 2001 George W. Bush (R) became president. Later that year, Virginia elected a Democratic governor. Bush was reelected in 2004.

In 2009 Barack Obama (D) became president. Later that year, Virginia elected a Republican governor. Obama was reelected in 2012.

In 2017 Donald Trump (R) became president. Later that year, Virginia elected a Democratic governor.

I'm just sayin'. [Ronn Neff]  Ω

TLD is a forum of opinion, edited by hard-core market anarchists, that does not flinch from any of the most pressing issues of our time. We are especially interested in questions of culture and ethnicity, our Polite Totalitarian ruling class, and the homicidal humanitarianism of the U.S. Empire.

Our writers include anarcho-pessimists, Old Believers in the West, unreconstructed Confederates, neo-Objectivists, and other enemies of the permanent regime. We are conscientiously indifferent to considerations of thoughtcrime. Thus, from individualist and Euro-American perspectives, we confront the end of civilization — and do our level best to name its destroyers. (More about who we are.)

But we desperately need your help! TLD has no multimillionaire patrons; we get no corporate or foundation money. All of our support comes from a handful of interested individual readers — and how we treasure them! We hope you'll consider becoming a cherished Friend of TLD by sending some greenmail our way. Here's more information on all that.
