Re: “Now and then

So - if Trump/Putin did plan this whole thing - Trump really liked those photos of the children affected by the gas - this retaliation was all fake - he didn't care one bit for those families - and this is perfectly plausible to Lyons - that Trump is a murderer - well, it certainly makes one want to re-visit all those ridiculous (?) stories of all the people around Clinton who "mysteriously" have been killed or it was said committed suicide. I always thought those conspiracy theories were from nut jobs - but - gee, maybe not. Read about them - Clinton was a murderer? Don't worry Vince Foster - you will be avenged - ooooo - but that is different, ain't it Gene. Don't you realize you have entered La-La Land with this horrendous plot you are oh-so implying??? You are no different than the people you make so much fun of. It is quite sick - that is what it is. And so very sad..

Re: “Now and then

How one wishes Gene Lyons had come out and had the courage of his convictions - just say, "Trump cooked this alllllllll up himself - this whole Syria attack - in cahoots with Putin." Instead of such slyness as, "Meanwhile, Trumps son Eric may have inadvertently given the game away ... " See, Lyons just KNOWS this was "a game." And we all know, Mr. Gene "It's all over but the counting" Lyons is so correct in his assessments ... Yep. If (God forbid) Russia and the United States would engage in a nuclear war - countries destroyed on both sides - Lyons would raise his head from the ashes and shout, "It's all a game, a distraction!" And I thought only the far right came up with evil conspiracies - as Lyons so often maintains. Nope.

Re: “Tribal loathing

In other words - what exactly is your point? For example - that Scotland isn't "advanced"? That is ridiculous - what are your standards? They seem very narrow, And, may I remind you, they are YOUR standards. I've traveled a lot in Scotland - I found lovely towns, a fantastic countryside, and many wonderful people - individual people - many of them think our manner of politics is crazy. Look, everyone can be tribal and petty if they so choose - to use your words in describing the Scots????? Which is the point that Gene Lyons made, and I reiterated. And, yes, I include many of today's "liberal" Democrats. And snobs such as you seem to be. The end.

Re: “Tribal loathing

Societies, tribes, nations, "they" are made up of PEOPLE - remember? You have a narrow definition of "advanced" and advancement" - and are so engulfed in semantics as to be silly. Do tell me what nations you are talking abouit - that are so well-integrated and nationalized they have NEVER succumbed to internal wars or if they were involved in external wars - ALWAYS won and engulfed their neighbors - from an anthropological viewpoint or a historical one - I mean from the very, very beginning? You are lost in words, words, words. Try simple. What superior group of PEOPLE have done that? What superior PEOPLE?

Re: “Tribal loathing

Ah, yes, the old EUGENICS argument, dressed up. My, how us "grown" nations are so intelligent - we have evolved into being able to destroy each other completely with nuclear weapons! The whole point of Jared's (on a first-name basis, are we?) book is why "resources" are, were, not developed because of mitigating factors - even weather! No, Mr. E., women, blacks, Jews - the list goes on and on - are not inherently stupid as peoples - and no critical reviews by any "historians or anthropological" experts of merit espoused this - not since the Nazis - that I read. Implicit bias, indeed.

Re: “Tribal loathing

Why not look at the "ill-informed" tribal instincts of your own side - To Gene Lyons credit - he did. Both sides - both sides - that is the sign of intelligence. Otherwise, it is childishness. But I bet you might still be a cutey ....... alas.
