    Scary stuff but glad they caught it. Hope it's all routine and back to normal soon!

    It's been reported for months that the FBI sought and obtained a FISA warrant in October to surveil members of Trump's campaign for espionage with Russia. It would seem the president has just confirmed that through his bizarre Twitter rant. And why now? I suspect the FBI investigation might end up yielding something.

    I ended up buying into Alphabet. Probably paid too much but that's the company I want to hitch my wagon to.

    From the intoxicated man POV, this is a good way to lose money.

    I'm nervous buying at these heights. The indexes seem overvalued and excessive optimism keeps pushing them higher. One twitch from Yellen or a bill stalling in Congress and the bottom could fall out. But what the hell do I know? I'm probably going to add to my defense ETF though.

    This Is How Your Hyperpartisan Political News Gets Made - BuzzFeed News I thought this was interesting. This company has a liberal and conservative "fake news" site that publishes identical stories with just a couple of words switched around. Of course, none of it's true.

    Well, I could certainly come up with a more caustic definition, but I'm not sure that would foster much discussion beyond trading the usual barbs. So I went for neutral and hoped people would take a stab at the questions.

    Good idea. Let’s say for the sake of discussion that nationalism is the belief there is an identifiable national identity connected to a specific territory and sovereignty over the territory is essential to supporting this national identity. I think that’s sufficiently broad and neutral enough to work here. If someone has a better idea then please add to it.

    What do nationalists want? I thought this was an interesting piece from one of the more thoughtful conservative voices out there. I thought it raised some questions worthy of discussion, which will hopefully be a diversion from the usual sniping and gotchya games. I'll add a few questions of my own: At least part of the support for “strong borders” and restrictions on immigration is to maintain or restore a national identity. How should...

    The notion that if we just say "radical Islamic terrorism" the problem will go away is one of those feel good things people love to share on Facebook but ultimately makes for useless and self-defeating foreign policy.

    I think that's by design. Trump is targeting outlets people turn to for information, not the ideological driven places like MSNBC or Vox or whatever. As much as I loathe CNN, it's the channel likely to be on at the gym or where more casual observers turn during breaking events. If you're flipping to Fox or MSNBC you're already converted. But if Trump (read: Bannon) turns reading prominent newspapers or turning on a mainstream news channel...

    Since Trump directs his ire toward (among others I can't remember off hand) the New York Times, the Washington Post, and (gulp) CNN, why don't we link to their allegedly false and/or deceptively scewed stories. We'll exclude opinion pages and CNN's mindless debate "panels" and stick to their hard news stories. I think that will at least keep us on the same page here.

    I'm not big into rewatching movies, but these are movies I either hold people down and force them to watch if they haven't seen it or will watch if it's on.

    It's crazy. There's a trendy home store nearby that's filled with stuff that's basically pallet wood - excuse me, "reclaimed" wood - and paint for absurd amounts of money. It's one giant eye roll walking through there.
