Re: Politics & Current Events

Do we know when the CBO score is coming out? It can't be good, given this bill is almost exactly the same as the House trash passed earlier. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/cbo-score-expected-next-week-on-senate-healthcare-bill/article/2626803 The score will be bad but not as bad as the house bil...

Re: Politics & Current Events

There are a couple of long form stories out now about Trump's shady business on the bloomberg website. I think he's in bigger trouble than he thought. https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2017-06-21/trump-russia-and-those-shadowy-sater-deals-at-bayrock https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2017...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

That's great. I dont have super high hopes for Eloy, yet he's still a top 10ish minor league player and the Cubs are not trading that capital for a Bad SP or an injured one that has also been bad . Or at least they shouldn't. I don't think anyone here would suggest such a thing. Except you just did.

Also, there are a horsefeathers ton of senior citizens who are going to pissed off when the ACHA gets passed. We just have to hope they can hang on for a few more years to vote.

Re: Politics & Current Events

GOP has really been a more or less single issue party for at least 40 years. Lower taxes. Yea, there's other issues, pro-life being the big social issue that keeps the religious right on board, but basically people know a vote for the GOP is a vote for lower taxes. It's an easypopulist promise to c...

They've already done this, they did the 2016 election like this and lost to a bad spray on tan version of a George Jefferson/Archie Bunker offspring.

Sure you can advocate for them, but there is a great fatigue among voters with millionaires posing as populists. "Millionaires are evil and are hoarding all the wealth! I mean, not US, but, you know, the OTHER ones!" You mean like 90% of Hollywood? Ppl are sick of hearing from Alisa Milan...

Republican Light when out in 2000. People voted for Obama because they thought he was something he wasn't.
