  1. 1. Well, according the DOJ, twice, a sitting President cannot be indicted. Though my guess is that wouldn't cover murder, etc... But I truly don't know. And, don't care. If a serious crime is committed, like perjury, for instance, or working with any foreign government to hurt the US, I think they should be dismissed from office, charged, and prosecuted immediately. But, the lawyers will have to figure all that out. 2. But the presumption of innocence is supposed to be the way it goes. The left believes he's guilty of everything anyone can make up. He may be guilty, he may not be. I personally find it amusing that people act like meddling in elections, by every friggin country than can, including the US, hasn't been happening forever, and will continue to, forever. Funny, after all the years of dead people, non-citzens, and double dippers voting in our elections, the left all of a sudden cares about election security.
  2. Obviously, the flip side of this is that, the mental gymnastics reside almost exclusively on the left. The "smoke" as you call it, comes from left wing fantasy land, backed up by CNN, and shrieked daily by never Trumpers. The sudden concern over sexual discretions by the left is cute, and all, but it rings hollow after the last 20yrs, in combination with the plethora of sexual deviants coming out of the woodwork on the left. So spare me the indignation. We'll have to see how it all ends.
  3. Yeah, but they need the most help. And as a humanitarian, I must try.
  4. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/op-eds/judge-brett-kavanaugh-faithfully-applies-the-law-instead-of-making-it-up Sure I can. Because the charge of collusion, is an illusion, born of confusion. Common sense demands it. Prove collusion. Then we'll talk. BTW, media reports, allegations, and continued shrieking, isn't proof. Sorry
  5. No, they're both despicable. Neither side is worth saving in their present form. But obviously, I consider the D's to be far more damaging, to everything, than the R's. But as an Independent, their mutual destruction would be the best thing that could happen.
  6. Both party's need to be burned to the ground.
  7. Not to mention, the ultimate goal of government controlled cradle to grave healthcare.
  8. Our costs I listed were AFTER the company paid half. (We had a different deal than most in the company, as a perc) Used to have limitless doctor visits, with a $20 copay. Now we get 1 yearly checkup, with a $50 copay. Others are now $80, out of pocket, until deduction is met. As part of all our old plans, Spiriva script was $30 month. Latest plan is $75 a month, on top of a yearly $250 deductible. I think it's a $20 increase for referrals. Which is new to our latest plan.
  9. No, you're right, Bang. The insurance companies are a major contributor. But just like a QB gets the blame, or the credit, for whatever happens, Obama was at the helm when this thing was forced on the country. That's the way things go. in reality, I think the d leadership had much more to do with plan than Obama did. But, he was the guy in charge, and could have held them up to do a better plan, instead of ramming it down everyone's throat. Knowing once it was implementing it, it would be damn hard to get rid of. Wasn't even one of the main the architects of it caught on tape laughing at how the media and the public were intentionally duped into buying the lies used to sell it? Can't remember his name. I also left out ****ing about prescription costs because it's not fair to pin that on Obama. Although he, like every other President so far, failed to do anything about it, that made sense.
  10. Well, I'm not putting my information on here for you to see. And I don't really care how it's affected other people. I know what it's done to me. I pay the bills. Not going to put my friends business on the web either. But I know what they tell me, and I believe them. Even the uber left friends that I have. My assertions are based on that. We used to pay, in the last year of Bush, around $200 a month, with a $250ea deductible, for a good family plan. We now pay $1000 a month, with a $2000ea deductible. And our increases are now paying for our insurance, plus people who I don't know, or give a rats ass about. No, healthcare is not a right, IMO. So, for me, Obamacare has been a botched abortion. And my money is all I care about.
  11. I don't now what people you're talking about. But I would think it's likely that they are the ones receiving something without having to pay. While they exist, I'm sure, I don't know a single person who saved $2000 a year with it's passage. To the contrary, everyone I know is paying higher premiums, and have higher deductions. And the rate at which these things have risen far exceed any other time period before it's inception. The company we get our insurance through has had to switch plans 4 times, trying to reduce the impact on employees. Resulting in many having to switch doctors. It's a horrible plan that the D's are responsible for. And the spineless R's are still more concerned with trying to impress the media, so they will like them, (which will never, ever happen) and not surprisingly lack the balls to take full ownership of burying the piece of garbage, with the elections coming up. If they can increase their numbers in the midterms, they may finally take a weedeater to it. I for one, hope they do. EDIT: I do have some Democrat friends that **** and moan as much as I do about the astronomical rise in their costs since it's inception. But they're staunch D's, and will never criticize anything their party does. Especially President Obama.
  12. The thing is, Chang, you don't have to like the terms. But they're accurate. Draining The Swamp: I, and many others, have, will, and do believe, that term limits are desperately needed for Congress. Far too often we're stuck, for years, with the likes of Robert Byrd, Strom Thurmond, Nancy Pelosi, etc... That's one form of draining the swamp. Getting rid of dumb laws, regulations, and backroom deals grandfathered in from year to year, is another form of draining the swamp. There's more than that, but I'm sure you get my meaning. Using the phrase is just quick and easy. But it covers a lot. Witch Hunt: With little more than a Hillary financed dossier, filled with unverified drivel, supplied by those rascally Russians, Bob Mueller, who tried to ruin the life of a previous target, based on the testimony of 2 barking dogs, is now using a team filled Democrat hacks, to try and find something, anything, to bring down the President. Although he hasn't laid a glove on him, to date, the left wing media has been reporting that, "soon" the smoking gun is coming, since the day Mueller was named to investigate...something. There were no witches. That's why the hunt was ridiculous. Unless and until Trump is proved to have committed a crime, and not by some internet Marcia Clark wannabe, it's just another witch hunt. Or, if you prefer, a farce. Democrat Dossier: See above. The left, doth convict without proof, too much.
  13. Well kb, there aren't many, if any, guys here that will actually change their views. Some may claim they would. But few actually ever do. So. I fit in very well. I also know few believe me, or even care, but I don't love every despicable thing President Trump may do. I also don't blindly believe every accusation against him, just because it's against him. Like so many here do. It all came down to two choices for me. Him, or Hillary. Two equally despicable human beings. But policy wise, for me, Trump was the only choice. I pulled the lever fully aware that I was voting for the lesser of 2 evils. And remember, Mueller, Comey and the FBI went after Steven Hatfill as the anthrax perpetrator. Based mostly on the testimony of 2 barking dogs. Hatfill was exonerated, and won a multi-million dollar lawsuit. So, it's not out of the realm of possibility for swamp members of the FBI to "get" the guy who said he would drain that swamp. Between two barking dogs, and a Democrat paid for dossier filled with BS acquired by Russians, you'll have to excuse me for having a lack of faith in the witch hunt.
  14. Are you wooing me, you old scoundrel?
  15. Just doing my part to Make The Tailgate Great Again!
  16. I see the mob has failed to scare him off too.
  17. Sorry, I missed the allegation of forced intercourse against Trump. Not saying groping and kissing are acceptable behavior. But they don't equal forcing a penis into a women. Hey! Nowhere to go but up! Winning!
  18. There are many distasteful things about Trump. I've already said I wouldn't want him married to my sister. I also know, if he ever groped my sister, like some of these women have alleged, she would have knocked him out on the spot. If he's dumb enough to continue this kind of alleged behavior, knowing the microscope he's under, then he deserves to get caught. But so far, there's nothing close to a stained blue dress.
  19. Well damn. I was wrong about there not being a number of women making allegations. Some are most likely true. Damn perv. But actually reading the whole story, it's also most likely that most were indeed politically, or financially motivated. I still don't equate "his hand then brushed against my breast", with, "He raped me."
  20. I can only speak for myself, t, but I'd say moral standards in this country have accelerated in getting worse since the Clinton Sexcapades. On both sides, and in the middle. But we survived Clinton. We'll survive Trump. However, a big difference here is that, so far, Trump's infidelities happened before he was elected. Unlike Clinton, and Kennedy. Their's were before, and during. Trump's all seem to be consensual. Like Kennedy's were. I haven't seen where numerous women have accused him of varying degrees of rape, like Clinton. And, to date, no assertions that the Secret Service had to participate in White House rendezvous as they did under Clinton, and Kennedy. I'd say the feigned moral outrage is coming now, from the left, over affairs that happened years ago. Outside of the White House. Many of the same ones who said, "It's just sex", to cover for Bill. If Trump gets caught getting blowjobs from an intern in a White House foyer, or has the Secret Service shuttling his dalliances in and out of the White House. Or otherwise being forced to put up with it, I'll scream as loud as anyone to throw him out the door.
  21. https://nypost.com/2018/07/28/trumps-demise-has-been-greatly-exaggerated/?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=NYPTwitter&utm_medium=SocialFlow Trump's Demise Greatly Exaggerated By Kyle Smith "If you ever lose faith in fairy tales and it occurs to you that Trump isn't going anywhere anytime soon, though, there is something you can do. You can keep smashing up Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with a pickaxe. That'll show him."
  22. 1. Yeah, millions seems a stretch. Tens of thousands are probably the minimum though. 2. Oh, Hillary knows what happened to them, so they're not missing. Too bad the FBI never got access to all they wanted to. Whether they're still hidden, or physically destroyed like so many other electronic devices were. 3. They all play that game. But the historically low unemployment among blacks and Hispanics are happening under President Trump. 4. Lots of people enjoy fiction. 5. True. 6. We'll find out if it was legal or not. but it happened. 7. Didn't hear that one. But anything that says that man made global warming is BS, is closer to the truth than man made global warming. 8. They meddled. China meddled. Others I'm sure. Just as we meddle in theirs. But they had no effect on the election. Shrieking that they did doesn't make it so. 9. He knows what the fake news headlines will be if he ever says anything like that.
  23. Might be mildly amusing if it actually happened. But like so many other leftwing fantasies, it didn't. Maybe the Marcia Clark's of the world are impressed. I just see as more of the left inventing what happened, or what was said, and then being critical about, while slapping each other on the back in congratulations of burning another straw man. Weak sauce!
  24. Gonna be a lot of disappointed people here once this farce of an investigation is over. No charges against Trump. How could there be? Even Obama said it was impossible to rig the election. Which it is. No impeachment. Hold both the House and Senate in the mid-terms. At worst. Gains in both a good chance. Re-election in 2020. At least 1 more Supreme Court appointment. Might have to rename the forum Trump's Tailgate. Hell, he already occupies a lot of space here.
  25. Not sure I'll make it back here tonight. Hopefully have some time tomorrow. In the meantime, calm down ladies and gents. Life ain't so bad. The country has survived every President so far. It will survive Trump.
