"The constitutional prohibition on people under the age of 35 serving as president is just one of these weird lacuna that was handed down to us from the 18th century but that nobody would seriously propose creating today if not for status quo bias."
Like, say, needing to be born in the US? Didn't stop rightists from making an issue of it for a decade and change....

Who else but young adult site Vox would argue that 29 is old enough to be president? Laughable.

Nice non-argument, lightweight.

Reread my post and I'll bet you can guess why!

"Not that it was necessary, given that virtually everyone in Chile had abandoned support for Allende by 1973...including his former allies."
Because the US created an economic crisis, yeah. This is all well documented. The US government has ADMITTED TO IT.
They have declassified the documents.

This time it's a bunch of left-leaning tech giants who wield more power than the likes of Rockefeller ever could have imagined.

Jeff sure is scared of tech giants now that they are deplatforming his Nazi buddies.

Turn me once,
You go where you want.
Turn me again,
You stay till you rot.

But I live or die,
By my crooked teeth,
What am I?

Screw all those stupid, illiterate Chileans who were rioting as a result of his policies.

They were rioting because the US drove a wrecking ball through their economy. The documents have been declassified for decades, straight from the CIA. The whole situation was manufacturered to produce the coup that was backed by the US and put a horrific tyranny in place. You are the last person in earth to believe it happened organically.

It's my superpower. I can spot a false equivalence at a 100 paces.

In terms of climate, regions closer to the equator are less susceptible to change. It's the northern latitudes than experience the most profound changes.

And PETM is totally the same as the current warming trend! No differences at all! Wow!

Argument from authority... without you actually presenting an authority. Convenient! Magically fallacious!

And I'd still be happy to provide it...but I think it would jut be deleted again. It wasn't even crazy stuff...just reports on the effects of PETM on plants in the equatorial regions. But it did paint a less than bleak picture on the effects of climate change.
