The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

How Far Off Was President Trump?

For John, BLUFThe control of history is the control of the narrative.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

The best part of this Ann Althouse Blog post is the clip of the song "You Gotta Have Heart" from Damn Yankees. The lede:
The BBC spoke to David Blight (Yale), Judith Geisberg (Villanova), and Jim Grossman (American Historical Association). I love the way they've broken this down into 5 individual statements, like whether Jackson was "a swashbuckler" and whether he was "tough" and had "a big heart."
By the way, I think the issue is not Jackson vs Lincoln, but rather President Lincoln's predecessor, President James Buchanan, who just let the South just slip away.  President Buchanan, like President Jackson, was a Democrat.

Here is Professor Althouse's final sentence:

One of the reasons Trump won was because he offered the common people liberation from that kind of bullying from the elite.
This is a very important point.

Hat tip to Ann Althouse.
