How could healthcare possibly be an emphasized issue for libtards? I thought 404care fixed everything.

For Janet... forget filling potholes, Milwaukee is wasting money on a trolley. And whining about a gas tax increase to pay for their potholes. Bad schools, high crime, and a trolley that goes around a 5 block loop. Perfect... you stay there, we'll drive around you and get on with life.

"I think the rules in Congress and, in particular the rules in the Senate, are unbelievably archaic and slow moving and, in many cases, unfair,” Trump said

Somehow Carlos Slim's barely house trained chimps missed the dumbest retard to crawl out of Scranton's pledge to not run in 2020:

Biden said he hasn't seen a more dire time for the country since his first days as a backbencher Labour MP, and that his wife, Mrs. Kinnock, feels the same way.

I posted this at the end of the previous thread before I realized there was a new one:

Old Lurker,

These are 4 articles, all related, which relate to your concerns. It is why I am patient, because I understand who is wielding the influence and who is writing the legislation. It will take time to fix this.

I also think once you read this you will see that Rush got all of his show prep here and did not attribute it to Sundance. According to what I read on the Treehouse site, it was almost word for word from Part 2.

Jim Demint is apparently leaving Heritage. I also saw a director of a big medical clinic (Mayo or Cleveland, can't remember which) who has been consulting for the White House has also turned in his resignation. This sounds to me like they are bringing more people in to write legislation.

At any rate, I am optimistic that things will get done in unexpected ways.

I hope you take the time to read those articles.

It's a desperate time for Dems. Their last bastion, as I think many have realized, is the GOPe.

Old Lurker

Thanks, MM. This was near the end of #4:

"President Trump needed only three legislative items to fulfill his policy mission:

...Repeal of ObamaCare.
...Passage of Tax Reform. -OR- Just the targeted portions of the tax proposal.
...Passage of a budget.

Despite all the media protestations to the contrary, these are the only three essential ingredients in the President Trump domestic policy agenda."

MM, I would add a fourth:

...Build a wall along our Southern Border.

So I worry because:

...The only O'care repeal was anything but a repeal, institutionalized many super dangerous features of O'care, and never got the votes. The amended version looks even worse, but so far does not have the votes either.

...To soon to say on Tax Reform but if it is handled as the O'care Repeal and the CR and the Wall have been handled, his grand plans have zero chance.

...Pass a budget? This first half year budget looks like a Chuck Schumer Barak Obama bath house wet dream. Yes I know they say the next one will be all Trump.

...Build a Wall? Then why would he sign a CR that not of does not fund a wall, but prohibits one?

Your links make my points.

They caught the Austin stabber. One dead apparently.

“That’s an internal war of politics in the US in which the Democratic party has taken a suicide pact or something to blow him up; in other words, to completely de-legitimise him and in so doing blow up the US essentially,” he said. “What they’re doing is destroying the trust that exists between people and government. It’s a very dangerous position to make accusations you cannot prove.”

Hi all, was just returning to campus from jury selection (cancelled) when I saw the emergency vehicles coming in. Parked and called Mr Porch who checked Twitter and urged me to come home (we didn't know the suspect had been apprehended). The police said to stay away from the area, but I feel bad not being with my people at work. So sad. I may go back in later if they give the all clear. Can't seem to get in touch with anyone.

The stabbing was right near my building, at the gym which is kitty corner across the street. If it's true that a CC person stopped the spree, that might ease some liberal minds on campus....maybe.

Turns out the stabbing was just outside my building on the steps. Holy cow. My buddy the guard ran out to help one of the victims. I wouldn't have been able to get into the library even if I had headed into work. They're letting people out of the building but they're not letting anyone in.

Times change..people change when they die, or when they see death and desire a change in themselves to avert death, but NO other motivation is strong enough.

But they can enter the mode of behavior modification, or fooling yourself with different habits.

Identity politics is stupid and inane. Political correctness is a philosophical trap set for the sincere so they will.pressure the rest to comply. DACA progressive failure is tied to their requirement that the disadvantaged should move to the front of the line against the resident citizenry.

Many stipulations to progressive stupidity ongoing. Try not to match the idiocy.

Yesm thank you Marlene.

Mark McKinnon, who did the crappy ads for W. I could have done better ads in my basement.

W had a lot of mediocre hangers-on who got their reputations because they hooked up with him, not because they were brilliant.

W was sort of the anti-Trump when it came to choosing staff and cabinet. Colin Powell is all I have to say on that subject.

HOF zombie:

More Madness: Pomona College Protests the Hiring of a White Professor

Not sure if this info was known at the time, but the story is 100x more schadenfreudlicious than previously realized.

The white professor who was hired (and whose hiring caused the fracas) is no ordinary white professor, but instead is a leading warrior in the "fabricate anti-white narratives in order to bring about the Black Revolution" cause, and it was for that very reason she was hired -- because although her skin tone may be white, she's so left-left-left-left-wing and so pro-black that she makes Rachel Dolezal look like Edgar Winter.

Her masterwork? Writing a book called "On the Run: Fugitive Life in an American City" in which she "goes rogue" and basically joins black gang members on their crime sprees, then wrote about it for a white intellectual audience -- showing the criminals' humanity and blaming the racist police for the criminals' misdeeds.

Wait for it -- yup turned out she TOTALLY FABRICATED MOST OF THE BOOK solely in order to increase her street cred amongst white academia.

But it gets better. Even though her book was factually debunked, LEFTIST ACADEMIA DIDN'T CARE THAT IT WAS DEBUNKED and lauded her to the skies and -- the point -- hired her as a professor.

Basically, she thought the she had blacked herself up enough and debased herself with gangsta culture enough that she would be essentially made an "honorary black person" -- she she has learned the hard way that THE ALLIGATOR WILL NOT EAT HER LAST. Instead, she is the first one eaten. Shock!

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

I guess I better address that goofy stuff from the last thread.
I know a lot about very little and a little about a lot and absolutely nothing at all about an embarrassing number of things.
I know a lot about tractor logging and trees, native to my home area.
I know a lot about some old rifles.
I know quite a bit about the things of God, breast cancer and European and Mopar cars of the sixties.
That's about it.
I went to about two months of college and decided I wanted to spend my life outdoors instead of on a drafting stool.
Mrs Iggy regularly made fun of me because I liked to read the old Encyclopedia Britannica she owned.
As a kid I liked to read and mostly pretty weird stuff for a kid. My parents had the complete works of Shakespeare with footnotes, so I could tell what the heck the old wanker was saying, and I read most of those when I was in grade school along with the nice concise Funk and Wagnalls encyclopedia they had. They also had the Harvard Classics and I waded through The Odyssey early on and Two Years Before the Mast, Voyage of the Beagle, Don Quixote.
But my favorite reading was often the dictionary. I like words. At one point I started at A and was going to write down every cool word I came to. But by the time I made it to anthropophogite and was on my seventh or eighth page of cool words I realized I wasn't really slimming down the dictionary much and so just did the hunt and peck thing after that.

When I happen upon something that is interesting and I don't know much about I like to find out.But there are many people here and everywhere else who know vastly more than me.

Admittedly though there are very few who are as rakishly handsome and irresistible. :P
