Re: Politics & Current Events

I've wanted to like Bernie. Dude talks a good policy game, but I just don't like the cut of his jib. Among other things, I get this feeling he wants to talk policy more than actually enact & administer it. His views on eliminating the filibuster are a case in point. How does he expect to pass e...

Re: Politics & Current Events

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/04/15/william-weld-will-run-against-trump-for-gop-presidential-nomination.html William Weld is running as a GOP candidate for president in 2020. I don't think this challenges Trump's chances in ANY way, but I approve of forcing him to waste time and resources on the primar...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Sanders is as close as the left can come to Trump. He’s been in congress forever and hasn’t passed any major legislation. He and his wife are corrupt as horsefeathers. He encourages his followers to do stupid horsefeathers and the best he’s going to do is gift wrap another four years for the orange...

Counterpoint. Why would a traitor like Flynn get a plea deal if Trump isn’t implicated? Isn’t the whole point of it so you can go after someone higher in the chain?

Maybe if he changes his name to Max Power It sucks; the guy is great, but the second Trump mouth-farts out something, like, "what is this guy called? BUTT GIG?!?" he's toast. Meanwhile, if Joe Biden actually goes through with this "I'm announcing my VP when I announcing I'm running, ...

I attended an Arkansas Traveler game when they were the AA affiliate for the Cardinals. A guy named Tyrone Horn hit a HR cycle in order-solo shot, 2 run shot, 3 run, grand slam. Pretty sure his game bat and gloves were sent to Cooperstown.

I really liked Chuck Todd at the time he took over Meet The Press but good lord is he awful. “You aren’t the first candidate to say, ‘I’m going to bring this country together,’” Todd told O’Rourke (see the video above at :50). “The most recent Democratic president, a lot of people put their hope in...

No, they exist (it's people "in the middle" who basically don't exist); they just suck, and courting them has been a losing game for the Left for too long. And this part. You do realize that a huge part if not most of the blue wave in November was courting moderate districts? I’m not sayi...

Not the biggest AOC fan, but that’s awesome. She's been phenomenal in committee. No grandstanding just pointed questions. She is extremely impressive. Check out her questioning of Wilbur Ross.
