This article is dead on. The #oldmedia is dying and they are trying (desperately) to pull a fast one while they can.
This is the beauty of the marketplace. And by the way I’m all for veganism. I wish I could do it.
I’ve been watching the “fake news” nonsense very closely. It seems to be a mix of partisans looking for a reason, any reason, why so many people just rejected Hillary and by extension Obama when in their opinion Clinton was clearly the superior choice, (Remember the whole email private server thing, and the Clinton Foundation money, and the quarter million dollar “speeches” to the bailout banks, and the get out of jail pass from Comey, and the rigged primaries,
Joburg is one of the great cities of the world. But it has long been very poorly run. Now a bit of hope.
This is an interesting argument but the gay marriage decision wasn’t THE deciding factor in the election. It was A deciding factor. There was a bouillabaisse of deciding factors this go’round. Regardless the article is worth reading.
2 things for the record. 1. We at ACC are not opposed to gay marriage. 2. I actually think that the single biggest factor in pushing Trump over the top was William Weld’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton even while he was running for vice president as a LIbertarian in the closing days.

The fact that Obama’s home town of Chicago, which has very restrictive gun laws, is a virtual war zone might give the soon to be former president a clue as to why Americans are/were not keen to part with their guns. In fact if Obama is “frustrated” that he couldn’t get gun control, how does he feel about the fact that his presidency was the biggest boon to gun manufacturers ever?

Good that this guy works with Theil. Not so good that he has Bush administration ties.
The Pentagon has for too long been given a blank check by “conservatives.” That has to change.
