  1. I've been making sure that I kept my employment. Educating you ladies and gentlemen had almost become a full time job, and I had to quit cold turkey in order to keep my posting under control and get my work done. I had tried half measures before and they never worked. oh and **** you :laugh:
  2. Perhaps. But it still is a good idea. something about a blind squirrel and an acorn
  3. We've seen it before. In Germany, around 1932. I wish I was joking but I only partially am.
  4. "Probably?" Bezos is worth 100 times more than Trump and is the richest man in the world. It is true, however, that it makes no sense for Amazon and other online retailers to pay no sales tax. It is a huge and unfair market distortion that penalizes brick and mortar stores for no good reason, and is easily fixed.
  5. No, Rubio is 100% neocon, and always has been. He legit loves Bolton (and Cheney,and Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz, and Kristol, and all the rest that got us into the Iraq debacle).
  6. I do not doubt the sincerity of anyone's beliefs, but I strongly suspect that if the same people who firmly and sincerely believe in Christianity had been born in rural India rather than the USA, they would just as firmly and sincerely believe in Hinduism (or Islam). In my view, if God exists, he will treat those people exactly the same as Christians when the time comes to judge their worth. If salvation can only come to those who were raised in the correct faith, the system is fundamentally unfair - and fundamental unfairness is the anthesis of the alleged perfection of God. In my view, if
  7. Bullcrap. Its a huge threat. You don't have to win to steamroll people and threaten to bankrupt them with legal fees. Trump has been doing that crap since he was 30 years old and had Roy Cohn do it for him.
  8. Raised catholic. Agnostic now. I'm pretty sure that the details of all the the various religions are wrong (especially the ones that claim that their interpretation of their own writings somehow proves that their religion provides the EXCLUSIVE way to salvation), but there may be something greater out there that is beyond our comprehension and may have created this universe and may have a plan for us that we don't understand. I just don't know and I don't expect to know in this life and I'm pretty sure that no one else can tell me, either.
  9. Nowhere has the Overton window applied so directly as in legal appointments. Ever since W open politicized the judicial appointment process, the GOP only puts up extreme conservatives, directly vetted by the Federalist Society. The Democrats only put up moderates, because the GOP blocks anyone with any possible connection to the left. The GOP is organized and it never gives in. The result is a massive overall move to the right - and the ideological conservatives are much younger.
  10. Depends if the GOP pays the political price for having done all this. If they are able to wash their hands of Trump too easily, they will keep on trucking with the same old Fox/Rush/Breitbart/culture wars/immigrant bashing/veiled racism/Federalist Society/dishonesty/extreme partisanship stuff that has worked so well for them for the past 20 years. If they get trounced in a couple of elections, they might have pull back toward decency in order to return to relevancy. Unfortunately, I'm not counting on that happening. They are too good at what they do in terms of d
  11. Ummm... Slander? Libel? Assuming of course that her story of the affair was false (as Cohen has repeatedly stated). Yes, but I think it was a referencs to Daisy Suckley, who was a far-distant cousin of FDR (and he probably did not have an affair with her anyway).
  12. I agree with your general point, but the FDR anecdotes are not accurate. FDR did have an affair with Lucy Mercer and likely several others, but not with any first cousins, and he died in a living room with several other people around him.
