Wasn't expecting a snarky Kasparov tweet in this thread. Awesome.

maybe you should keep your horsefeathering mouth shut mitch, considering that you're supporting a president who's a serial sexual assaulter and a future senator who's a pedophile.

As President Donald Trump delivered his inaugural address, incoming-national security adviser Michael Flynn texted his former business colleague about a plan to join Russia and build nuclear reactors in the Middle East: The project was "good to go," he told them, according to a summary of a whistleblower's account provided by a lawmaker.

The business colleague who texted with Flynn later recounted that he also suggested sanctions against Russia would be "ripped up" as one of the administration's first acts, according to the whistleblower


Nothing to see here.

hey who didn't see this one coming.



"We're going to have to get back next year at entitlement reform, which is how you tackle the debt and the deficit," Ryan said during an appearance on Ross Kaminsky's talk radio show. "... Frankly, it's the health care entitlements that are the big drivers of our debt, so we spend more time on the health care entitlements -- because that's really where the problem lies, fiscally speaking."

Ryan said that he believes he has begun convincing President Donald Trump in their private conversations about the need to rein in Medicare, the federal health program that primarily insures the elderly. As a candidate, Trump vowed not to cut spending on Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid. (Ryan also suggested congressional Republicans were unlikely to try changing Social Security, because the rules of the Senate forbid changes to the program through reconciliation -- the procedure the Senate can use to pass legislation with only 50 votes.


another big driver of the debt, not taxing people and businesses enough.

JC3 was already a poor option for a number of reasons before this; he was seemingly tossed out there literally for the name recognition alone.

Longer version of the weird Trump video. Does he have dentures? Are they falling out?

Ha! One more thing to make him insecure about so he can say some pointless self-aggrandizing thing on Twitter. Totally sounds exactly what my Grandma sounds like when her dentures start falling out.

Disagree. Democrats are fired up as heck, as we saw in Virginia. Any unenthusiasm is coming from Republicans.

I can tell you that I know at least 5 young women who have never voted who are voting for Jones. They work for me and are very upset. I do have two other older women who I think are voting for Moore. I don't know about the rest of the staff.

I'm totally unsure where Moore stands on this issue, so I wish we could've gotten an answer so voters could better make an informed choice.
