@johngordon But I also agree that there has been a “let’s throw Reagan policy and current situation without adapting” problem in GOP. Again though I think Noah has the tail wagging the dog in terms of causation.
@johngordon Why the GOP chose those leaders has no small part of randomness to it. It wasn’t obvious in 1999 just how bad Bush was. I think rest can be explained by many putting expediency above long term success.
@johngordon Do think he’s right about lack of stimulus effect of Bush tax cuts though. That should have been a big wakeup call. But of course everyone still debates what stimulus did and can do despite Bush/Obama stimulus.
@johngordon The file system is a completely different group and is doing it ground up rather than trying primarily to work with a different OS. So I don’t think SMB tells us much. (AFP IMO was OK but very dated - more like HFS)
@johngordon Apple is stuck with what MS allows. Samba was non-Apple and arguably worked poorly due to MS trying to make it hard for anyone to connect without MS. Apple’s SMB is licensed from MS so I think MS deserves much of the blame.
Luke Cage trailer http://www.slashfilm.com/luke-cage-teaser-trailer/ I have to admit that Luke Cage & Iron Fist were among my favorite comics when I was a kid. (I didn’t know the films they were riffing on but just loved them on their own terms)
@johngordon but Romney definitely was a better person and far more competent than Trump. R also alienate Ts base plus conservatives didn't trust him. Trying to be what he thought cons wanted led to his self destruction with 48% video.
