Re: Politics & Current Events

Not gonna happen. Ever. The man has a pathological hatred for Obama, and the current health care system was Obama's baby; there's maybe LESS than a zero chance he'd ever tolerate having his name attached to the ACA. Why does he have to? He can tweak a few things, call it Trumpcare and claim victory.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Why the horsefeathers would the guy who has seemingly gone out of his way to be as horsefeathering evil and stupid as possible suddenly want to work with the Democrats to fix health care? "Oh, yeah, I gave jobs to actual Nazis in my White House, but I'm going to give America the health care it...

Re: Politics & Current Events

If I'm the democrats, I go to Trump and I offer ways to improve Obamacare. 1000 x this. One thing unifying voters is their hatred of gridlock and politics as usual in Washington. Do something for the good for Americans and score some points as the party that puts people above politics and gets thin...

Re: Politics & Current Events

This article was an interesting read back in January listing the 14 different possible outcomes for the new Trump administration. I have to go with a combo of numbers 8 and 12 so far.

It's going to be one of these idiots that eventually unravels all of this. Trump and Bannon are too well protected and used to getting out of controversy.

Re: The Cardinals

It really is a win-win, but I think going to another team would be more entertaining from an "angry social media" perspective. Exactly. Seeing him sign with another team and play at an All Star level would be glorious. BFIB would unleash the full Royce Clayton treatment on the new catcher.

He's constantly getting that kind of pushback. And we have to wait to see if that pushback amounts to anything.
