overextension of attempts at extra border control, fundamentalist ideological rigidity, internal social theft and therefore fracture, and etc...

these are what he said are problems.. Trump is big on these. I don't need the interpretation of the media to know this. I just need to read his words and watch his actions.

Yes...and stupid and gullible people shouldn't be eligible.

So there now must be a universal standard. More regulations.

when our constitution was written

one had to be a white, male, land owner to vote

they felt that would indicate some evidence of character and perhaps intelligence

Pat Sajak (not say Jack) is the man (@ least so far), never laid a nasty hand on Vanna. Can you blame him. He's married to my cuz Lesly Brown.

BTW, no dirty laundry at all in this dynamic duo/trio.

As Wheel of Fortune approaches its 35th anniversary, it's obviously a good time to look back at everything the game show has done over the years, and it's no small achievement that Vanna White has managed to wear over 6,500 dresses and gowns since the show premiered in 1982, and without ever donning the same one twice.

All of y'all who have not man-handled women and/or contemplated doing so should get a life and stop hanging out with the riff-raff. One will be along shortly.

And Obama spent two or three hundred thousand to influence the last Israel election. No doubt we try to influence many elections all around the world in some way. At the end of the day, I’ve never read that the Russians hacked and flipped any tabs. Oh dear, they bought 100k in Facebook ads! And the trump admin had the audacity to make contact during the transition!! You libs are nuts. The reasons you lost were your shitty ideas, a deplorable, utterly corrupt candidate, and your own smug arrogance.

To hell with worrying about what's going on currently (TRUMP)...

Let's instead keep our focus on OBEEMER and HELLHURRY...

Makes total sense to me...

It should—if you want to know why you lost, and why trump is sittin’ in the White House. ;)

Why would you say that JohnM? You are one of the ones duped by that media into thinking Trump is the devil.

Yes Jody! Donald Trump is indeed the Biblical Satan!

Proof positive came this week, when he declared that the U.S. now recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, & he will move our embassy there.

That works for the Evangelicals, who believe that Jerusalem needs to be elevated by the Antichrist (that would be Donald Trump) so that Armageddon can happen, to further their strange biblical agenda.

When I was young, our pastor insisted that Jerusalem had an important role to play in these end-times events. When the Jews rejected Jesus as the messiah, he explained, God chose the church to accomplish his mission. Soon this "church age" would end with the rapture of true believers.

But God still loved the Jews, he told us, and wanted to redeem them. Thus, absent the church, the Jews would experience a great religious rebirth and rebuild their temple in Jerusalem. This would spark a series of cataclysmic events that would culminate in the Battle of Armageddon, the last war of humanity. But it would also cause the Jews to finally accept Jesus as their savior. After all this occurred, Jesus would return in glory and God's kingdom -- a thousand-year reign of peace. And it would begin in Jerusalem.

This theology -- a literal belief that all these things must happen before Jesus will return to reign on Earth -- is called "dispensational pre-millennialism" and it is not the quirky opinion of some isolated church. Although the majority of Christians do not share these views, versions of dispensational pre-millennialism dominate American evangelicalism.
It originated as a small movement in the 1840s, but by the 1970s, millions of evangelical and fundamentalist churchgoers had embraced some form of it.

Dispensationalism was popularized in a best-selling book called "The Late, Great Planet Earth" by Hal Lindsey; and later, in the 1990s, it reached an even larger audience through the "Left Behind" novels by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. The theology spread via Bible camps and colleges, through theological seminaries and revival meetings, in films and videos, by Sunday school materials, and in daily devotional guides -- all teaching that the end of the world was near, and that Jerusalem was the physical place where this apocalyptic drama would unfold.

Good work Jody! You are now supporting Satan (Donald Trump) in his biblical quest to bring on Armageddon!

And if he is not Satan, Trump has to be the biggest arse-hole on the planet & if you support him, you lower your status to “arse-hole” worshipper, from merely being an ass.

Fritz, that was one of the most convincing posts I’ve ever read. And boy, I like the way you went all-in on the whole millennial dispensational folks. Now THAT is some scary shit! You go Fritz. I look forward to reading what you have to say about fake moon landings and the melting point of steel. You understand folks like you who are in the know gotta be careful. We need you man!!

Crow Mortality Study.....

98% of crows have been killed due to impacts with large trucks and only 2% were killed by a car .

The State of Massachusetts hired an Ornithological Behaviorist from Boston to determine the disproportionate percentages for the large truck versus car kills.

The Behaviorists determined the cause in short order.
When crows eat road kill, they always set-up a look-out crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger.

His conclusion was that the lookout crow could say "Cah" ....but he could not say "Truck."

Now you know!

If Al Franken wants to stay in the senate...

He should just become a Republican.

Heard this whole agonizing, hand wringing piece on NPR yesterday that says, as its core and citing Franken and women of congress essentially drumming him out, as an example, paraphrased of course,

'the Democrats keep tke the high road and the republicans go low and win, and this keeps happening over and over again, then our principles are getting in the way of political progress. We have to go low too.'

Man, I don't want nothing to do with progressives who think like that. That's a sad, stinky sack of reasoning. It was a young person who stated it too, even worse.

"Democrats keep tke the high road and the republicans go low and win, and this keeps happening over and over again... That's a sad, stinky sack of reasoning."

It's sad and it stinks, but
it's also reality.
We have so many idiot voters who fall it.
The Repubhypocrits have used this strategy successfully for many decades.
Why else would we now be cutting taxes for the rich and proclaiming that it is reform?
Why else would the Supreme Court be stacked with fans of Citizen United and unlimited lobbying?
Why else would we be loosening up rules on conservative [religious] lobbying?
Why else would we be taxing grad students tuition waiver as income?
Why else would trumpy be president?
Why else would so many states be gerrymandered for republicans?
Why else would we deny AGW? Why else would we be eliminating net neutrality? Why else are we effectively eliminating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) from doing anything.
Why else are we crippling the EPA?
Why else has nothing been done to stop the trump crime family from profiting off government use of their private for profit hotels and resorts?

he is resigning. That doesn't mean he has resigned. The time issue is to allow his replacement to be found. The same thing happened with an Arizona senator who recently resigned. He was going to stay until Jan 1st. to allow the governor time to replace him. A few days later he changed his mind because he said his wife was ill, and left sooner. That was after more allegations came to light.

Will Franken actually leave? we will see.

But then, my guess is that you knew all this, you are just trying to stir the pot.

The real story here is the stark difference in the way Democrats treated Conyers and Franken. No racism here in D-land!

No logic involved at all inside Lituya-land of faux trolls, where facts are always ignored.

As a matter of fact, Lituya it is you who are being the exact Repubhypocrit that I just wrote about in my previous post, the kind who easily ignores serious sexual abuse by trumpy and moore.
