    That’s a different accusation from alleging that Billy made this about race.

  • [4] November 7, 2014 at 2:51pm

    Billy didn’t make this a racial issue — Pew Research did. Those are their numbers and their graphic that he included.

    That fact is heavily detailed in the full magazine piece — including a special sidebar all about that topic.

    “Self-appointed expert” Steven Crowder is a Millennial.

    While I certainly understand your point, these answers given by Millennials have nothing to do with party and/or social conservatism. These reflect their actual beliefs:

    ➤ 74 percent: government should guarantee every citizen has a place to sleep and enough to eat;

    ➤ 72 percent: raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour;

    ➤ 69 percent: government should guarantee everyone access to health care;

    ➤ 68 percent: government should ensure everyone makes a living wage;

    ➤ 66 percent: raising taxes on the wealthy would help the economy;

    ➤ 63 percent: spending more on job training would help the economy;

    ➤ 58 percent: government should spend more on assistance to the poor even it means higher taxes;

    ➤ 57 percent: spend more money on infrastructure;

    ➤ 54 percent: government should guarantee everyone a college education; and

    ➤ 51 percent: view Obamacare favorably.

    This report reveals that, actually, young voters really aren’t so libertarianish after all. In fact, they’re more likely to lean toward Big Gov’t than toward smaller gov’t.

    What about the Eucharist? It looks a little like Passover.

    Considering it’s a book about God, what would have been the right reasons?

    Don’t tell anybody (since we’re reserving the full piece for mag subscribers) but De Niro is #3 on the printed list.

    Yeah, that seems like the Christian response — especially in a fight over Christian symbols.

    The piece does not include discussion of an EMP weapon like that of Ocean’s Eleven. This is all about the launching and detonation of a nuclear device in the atmosphere, which, as you note, would knock out power.

  • [2] September 12, 2014 at 1:45pm

    And if we have no idea of knowing who launched it, then what? That’s part of the problem. Once detonated, many of these weapons leave no fingerprints, no evidence of who did it.

  • [7] September 12, 2014 at 1:41pm

    From the full story, as printed in the magazine:

    “An argument against the likelihood of such an attack is that the disappearance of the United States would instantly destroy 25 percent of worldwide GDP, thus causing mass starvation of millions inside China, Russia, Iran and North Korea as well as the Third World.

    But what if the Axis is fine with that? What if its calculation is that a thinning of its own populations would make the imposition of tyranny over its peoples more manageable?”

    The full story, as published in the magazine, addresses just such a concern. Part of the problem is that the weapons we document have been created and tested have no fingerprints. We would not know who launched it. Unless you’re OK with bombing everybody we suspect without evidence, our retaliatory measure would be extremely limited.
