Re: This is also NOT from the Onion

I'm listening to this testimony and it is fairly devastating. And, within the first two sentences of Nunes's opening statement I could see that the Republicans strategy is to ignore facts and engage in distraction. Too much to expect them to put country ahead of party. Vinny What specifically do yo...

Re: The Republican Brain?

One could also ask why Democrats deny math.

And some of what’s labeled “science” is actually “religion”, so there’s that.

But neither discussion is likely to generate much useful insight.

Budd, if you hate gold so much... oops, wrong thread... or is it?
What should I do? Leave the country? :D

I can't divest myself of Trump for about a year...
One option would be to stop allowing Trump to live rent-free in your head and then just vote accordingly in 2020.

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

This article in The Federalist makes some good points:

Why It’s Not Surprising Voters Don’t Think Trump’s Rhetoric Is Disqualifying

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Not sure if anyone’s noticed, but the flow of information on the internet has changed a bit since Drudge was a “major influence” TWENTY YEARS AGO.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

doodle, the trumpsters/goldbugs/libertarians like that he's (unintentionally) increasing government dysfunction and making it harder for gov to do anything (like "regulate," tax them, take their guns n'gold). When someone's doing something you like, cognitive dissonance prevents you from admitting ...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Actually, I'd be a lot less comfortable about them if they're all telling the truth! No kidding. The deep pockets and motivated niche voter groups in the primary are clearly all single-issue ideologues, and by pandering to each one the candidates all sound completely insane. One theory is that the ...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I’m not a Constitutional scholar, don’t play one on TV, and didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn last night. But this thread regarding the House “subpoenas” and their enforceability sounds interesting. No idea if it actually holds up.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

All I wanted... ...was someone who my kids and I could at least respect, if not look up to. I'll admit I'm highly cynical, but this is where I think many people are simply expecting too much. I also question how much respect and reverence of previous presidents and other officials is the result of ...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

So, yes, compared to what else is on offer, I personally think that Trump's demeanor reflects well on our country. He's comfortable in his own skin (as creepy and scaly as that might be). I'm not following this argument... An authentic asshole, who doesn't try to filter his public behavior or react...

Re: Ukranian phone call

Perhaps this is what’s going on:

Nancy Pelosi is “Grubering” The American Electorate on Impeachment – Committee Requests, aka “Subpoenas”, Constructed to Manufacture “Obstruction”…

Certainly doesn’t seem like they’re following a “proper” process.
