i don’t fit in with the cool classical liberals because i don’t hate communism enough

You don’t fit in with classical liberals because you are offended that slaves were “only” 3/5 of a person. As you’ll…

v-p is defining Classical Liberal (rather strangely) as “People who argued against the Three-Fifths Compromise" - in other words, anti-slavery delegates at the US Constitutional Convention. They are also claiming (again, rather strangely) that these anti-slavery delegates were actually secretly pro-slavery against the brave anti-slavery southerners or something (its a bizarre chain of reasoning).

I wouldn’t worry too much about it - it is a flawed position based on twin misinterpretations of both the definition of classical liberal and the Three-Fifths Compromise.

(Also, I have enough communism disdain to go around, you are welcome to share some of mine :P)

Love this idea, mostly because fresh herbs are crazy expensive and I never use them all up before they go bad: chop up your herbs and stick them into an ice cube tray, then cover with olive oil and freeze.
Toss a cube or two into your pan whenever you’re in need, and presto: fresh herbs, all winter long.

Frank Underwood is just a later life alias of Keyser Söze.

Truth is the oldest of all the virtues; it antedated man, it lived before there was man to perceive it or to accept it. It is the unchangeable, the constant. Law is the eternal truth of Nature—the unity that always produces identical results under identical conditions. When a man discovers a great truth in Nature he has the key to the understanding of a million phenomena; when he grasps a great truth in morals he has in it the key to his spiritual re-creation.
