  1. Good way of doing it. It also shifts the overton window as was suggested. This is good.
  2. This is great news. I'm really excited to see what manufacturers offer in terms of trucks. I would love an all-electric truck. I bought a F-150 a few months ago. All in all, it's pretty efficient for having a 400 horsepower V8 - I got 23 mpg on a recent trip to and from California. But I wouldn't mind getting an electric version in 5 or so years.
  3. Make it even spicier: 1. Full repeal of the preexisting conditions clause for private insurance 2. Fold all existing federal healthcare programs into Medicare (including VA healthcare) 3. Remove the tax incentive for employer provided health insurance. Instead, give the tax incentive to employers who deposit money into employees' health savings accounts. This money can be used to pay for medical services "out of pocket", purchase private insurance or enrolling in Medicare (see #4) 4. Open up Medicare for anyone who wants it. If private insurance cannot cover you, you can enroll in Medicare and pay monthly premiums and copays.
  4. This is either a joke about being old and developing Alzheimers, or it's about Rudy being bat boy. Either works, really.
  5. Pete't plan is what a lot of countries use quite successfully. There are only a handful of countries that have completely socialized healthcare. Places like Japan, Germany, France, and Australia all use a mixed system as far as I understand it.
  6. So what options do the Democrats in House have? How can they extract this information from Intelligence Community IG or the DNI?
  7. Meh. I just bought a couple of lower receivers last month from a mom and pop manufacturer. I'm building a pistol and a full length rifle over the next few months. There are dozens of choices of finished rifles and build kits out there. I never even considered buying a colt, honest.
  8. I dunno. That probably wouldn't fall into whistle blower territory in my opinion. It would have to be something promised to another leader for personal gain, or at least illegal behavior. Simply promising Russia you'd stay out of Russia's affairs in Ukraine doesn't seem like an illegal move to me. Dick move? Sure. But not illegal. We make those types of agreements all the time I would imagine.
  9. It's the perfect set up for the GOP to go after Democrats though: "They do want to take your guns". Any waffling there may have been with conservatives and gun owners about voting for Trump, as repugnent as he is, will all fade away if the Democrats run on a confiscation platform. Do they not remember what happened in 1994?
  10. What's crazy to me is that not a single Democratic candidate (AFAIK) has argued for ending the war on drugs. The war on drugs is what has fueled gun violence over the last 4 or 5 decades. Ending the war on drugs and investing heavily into inner cities will have more impact on gun violence then confiscating AR-15s.
