I made the coffee too strong and was a bit sick during my workout.

Silly season: good scientists often don’t tolerate bad arguments. So, I’ve been amused to watch this scientist attack some bad arguments.

Now, I’ll say that I have a much higher opinion of Hillary Clinton than he does; I see her as smart, tough and someone who can think on her feet. Evidently people like Paul Krugman agree with me, and I take solace in that.

But I’ve think that we’ve reached a point where some of the criticisms are silly.

Yes, I agree with Mr. Trump that our infrastructure is antiquated and an embarrassment to our country.
And as far as Alicia Machado: yes, being Ms. Universe means that one is obligated to keep in shape (just like, say, a military officer, dancer or an athlete is). Yes, she has a very checkered past. Personally, I’d hope that Hillary Clinton would leave this one alone, though I wonder why Mr. Trump doesn’t have anything better to do than to fire off a bunch of late night tweets attacking her. And Mr. Trump publicly chiding people for being fat…well, isn’t exactly a winning strategy and isn’t presidential. And one might look at who is supporting Mr. Trump….

  1. I read your sidebar and noticed you aren’t a fan of socialism. However, in this post, you criticize the US for its crumbling infrastructure. With the exception of Cuba, socialist countries have had historically impressive infrastructure. The USSR, for example, took a feudalist society, and, in 30 years, Stalin helped to turn it into an economic and industrial powerhouse. What was once a society where people gleaned from the dirt was now a nation that ended up beating the US in the space race. I feel that if you’re a fan of infrastructure, you should be fan of socialism. There’s no incentive for a free market, capitalist economy to build roads.
