    It's nice that they finally published a book that Republicans have the capacity to read all the way through.

    Almost as good of a troll job as the time Kansas elected a Republican legislature and a Republican governor and their Republican policies bankrupted the state, closed down schools, and chased jobs away from Kansas. Haha! Those wacky trolls.

    He committed perjury. Fuck him. Fuck Flynn. Fuck Carter Paige. Fuck Steve Bannon. Fuck Steven Cohen--who isn't even in the administration, but fuck him nevertheless. Fuck Paul Manafort. Fuck James Comey. And fuck Agent Orange who brought the entire shit team together.

    Let's just all take a moment to appreciate a foreign national lecturing an American attorney on Constitutional law.

    Must be horrible to live in a place where people with pre existing conditions get covered and dont get screwed over by chance disease. I mean, thatd be some moral hellscape that I cant imagine. Some sort of cold arctic tundra, or some desert that ingenuity brought to life by working together for a common good they were able to make the land worth fighting for. Eww.

    I have been around reading here and there, kind of disappointed with lack of good topics. So I have been super busy since January 1st. As most of you know my 17 year old daughter, almost 18 lives with her dad and spends time with me whenever. January 1st I get frantic call from her dad he doesn't know where our daughter is and it's 1 am. I got a hold of her to find out after work she went to friend's house and ate a pot brownie. I appreciated she was honest and thought she should not gi home until she's not high. Her father was frustrated I wasn't making big deal out of the situation. Then in the morning I got a call she's being kicked out and if I want to take her. I was there in a heartbeat. I find out she's been driving not having driver's license and no insurance. I wouldn't allow it so I got her enrolled into driving school. So between full time job and her school and her job, I was driving everywhere a lot. She's officially staying with us. She passed her DL test and driving and she got her DL less than two weeks ago. In the mean time MY parents contact me that I haven't seen talked to in 7 years! @kittykat My parents miss me and my family and accept my decisions and no longer care I'm out of their religion. Emblazon met them which I thought would never ever happen. The day we went to see them last Saturday, they gave us $5,000 towards my daughter's car!! That's huge since all we had was $500 for down. Huge relief and help. So my daughter as of last Saturday has a nice car, a used Acura. This past week has been amazing not to have to drive places other than job and groceries. So our little family now is four of us with my parents being part of my life. Couple people here reached out to see if I'm still alive. But yeah that's what's been going on. My life is actually in a very good place and I cannot believe things are in place. My spine issues are still there but not as bad as last 12 months. What's everyone else been up to??

    Yes. And because I own this place, I can do whatever the hell I want to. Privileges of private property from the Adam Smith School of Free Enterprise.

    I support the idea of basic income, if it's paired with the elimination of other welfare programs. All adults, regardless of income or means, should receive it.

    We do. Food stamps are a vital entitlement for many, food deserts need to be eliminated to bring about choice, and urban gardens and farmers markets should be much more prevalent. Why do you oppose literally all of these things?

    Honestly this sort of semantic horseplay doesn't bother me half as much as right-wing attempts to essentially rewrite the history of slavery to whitewash the fact that the U.S.'s dependence on slavery was uniquely robust among the world's great powers, and that it had a longer-than-average dependence on slavery for its economic output: That ostensibly intelligent people could believe this, and ignore the fact that most of the great powers of Europe had already abolished the institution of slavery decades before the U.S. ended it nation-wide in 1865, (Great Britain in 1833, France in 1848, Germany/Prussia in 1807, Sweden in 1813, Denmark in 1792 and in the West Indies in 1848, Spain with the exception of Cuba in 1835, etc.) all doing so relatively peacefully without devolving into bloody civil wars that tore them apart at the seams, and that they had already pretty much rebuilt their economies on a foundation of purer industrial capitalism--rather than having a whole half of their economies still depend on what was essentially a form of feudalism--is scary.

    Saying a slave was technically an immigrant is like saying someone technically moved into a single family home when they get tossed into solitary confinement.

    Remember when you posted a tweet asserting Obama had dinner with the judge in Hawaii, even though said judge was not in any of the pictures? Remember when you posted the tweet about the mosque shooter being a Muslim even after it was reported he was a white nationalist? Remember those?

    I know I shouldn't feed the troll but this is just too perfect. Two responses to the same post. TwinIon in one sentence says "no" that and he cites a credible source. Immediately afterwards is heyyoudvd's post where he blathers on for several paragraphs doing nothing but spitting out a bunch of talking points and say nothing substantive or sourced, and nothing that even addresses the question specifically.

    No, you're describing textualism. Originalism means "original intent" or "original meaning." Please see Scalia's dissent in Lawrence v. Texas and DO please stop trying to fuck with me on this shit.

    I just finished my shift an hour ago in an inner city ER and reflecting on this mother fuckers utter bullshit is pissing me off more now. This cowardly troll pos who enjoys universal healthcare lambasts poor Americans with esrd/htn, standard health issues, while dvd who would love to deny tax paying Americans live saving treatment due to ideology, despite providing nothing to the system he supports while enjoying the superior system of universal healthcare. You fucking coward troll. I saw 14 patients as one nurse in the busiest ER in my city this night. I'm tired of ignorant weak mother fuckers, I over head press more than you bench dvd pre pec tear you wake pathetic fuck, telling me what healthcare is while they work as factory workers. Their ideology doesn't meet reality. Fuck you dvd.i hope you move to the us you cowardly weak fuck and have your lithium denied as a "pre existing condition."

    DVD, if you really can't see the difference then I don't know why it's worth even bothering to have a discussion with you. If you also don't think the right puts out similarly slanted news stories then I also don't think it's worth having further discussions on this topic with you. The bottom line is that Trump's "FAKE NEWS" line of attack on CNN and other news outlets is dangerous, juvenile, lacking in all nuance and is just plain dangerous. If you can't see that, I don't know what to say. I don't even like CNN. I think it's a shitty news source. They suck. But what Donald Trump is doing is dangerous. And when his followers, like you, parrot his little FAKE NEWS talking point doublespeak bullshit, it's also dangerous. If you want to have a conversation about media bias, go for it. But just shouting FAKE NEWS over and over is unbelievably dishonest and dangerous.

    I remember back in 2009 on the CEB when a bunch of people were mortified by Barack and Michelle giving David Cameron a set of region 1 DVDs. Simpler times.

    The reason that the cbo is cited is because it is a relatively impartial, apolitical organization to make difficult economic projections based on the legislation in front of it. If you're going to not trust their projections, you best have a better way to evaluate the legislation, and citing the heritage foundation or economic policy institute or some other biased think tank is worthless unless you want to dive into the actual assumptions used in the projection, or their model, or etc etc. Just saying they've been wrong before (oh look they're human) without a better evaluation is just spitting hot air for the sake of discrediting results you don't like.

    Declare health care (not health insurance) to be in the national security and economic interests of the state, and elevate health care professionals to the status of national heroes on par with military personnel. Health insurance executives are declared as "enemies of the state" and they and their families are publicly executed.

    Dude... This is about people losing jobs and not having any options, not about playing too many games and being on Facebook. You've got a real anger problem, man. As someone who's dad killed himself, I'm saying you can shut the fuck up.

    This is almost as good of a troll job as when Dick Cheney and the rest of the Project for a New American Century manipulated intelligence and preyed on the fears of a scared American electorate and an easily influenced president to send us into a rabbit hole quagmire in the desert, killing over a hundred thousand Iraqis, thousands of Americans, destabilizing the entire Middle East, and creating numerous refugee crises that precipitated the rise of nationalism, hate crimes, and President Donald fucking Trump. GOOD ONE!

    If there was a 4th grade social studies project and they had the kids making crayon drawings of what their plans would be like, this is the kind of title several of their presentations would have. Incredible.

    I didn't tell my nephew that I had ordered a Switch for him too, he really didn't know what it was, but I knew that he loves games, and he also wants to do anything me or my dad do, since his dad is a deadbeat and we're trhe only father figures he really has in his life. So tonight I picked him up after he got home from school and daycare, and brought him to my parents for supper and to hang out for the night, since he's staying with me for the weekend while his mom works. It's the perfect weekend since switch launched today. So, without telling him it was his, I set it up at my parents for him. He fell in love with right away. Of course he asked if he could have it. I told him it was mine, and it was expensive, so I had to keep it. I've never seen a more broken hearted child. It was something like this: "But papa (what he calls my dad), no papa, its a toy, tell him he doesn't need toys, Papa!" (by this time his lip was curled and tears were starting flow) "He's a big boy, Papa, look at him. Tell him I'm just a little boy, and little boys are supposed to have toys, not big boys!" By this time, my dad started teasing too. "Funny, aren't you always telling us you're a big boy now?" "No Papa, i'm a little big boy! He's a big big boy. Pleasde uncle, I really want a Nintendo Switch!" We teased him for another minute or two before he we told him the truth. He went from from crying to absolute elation withing 15 seconds, lol. Children are great, as long as they aren't mine!
