  1. Says the guy who gets socialized health care. Want to give up your Medicare and try to buy a policy on the private market? Didn't think so.
  2. Remember when Flynn was yelling "Lock her Up"?
  3. Could you clarify what you mean by "meddle"? I think it's been well established that Russia intervened and tried to influence the election. That was the unanimous conclusion of the intelligence community back in October. Are you saying there is something going beyond that? Does "meddle" mean direct involvement with Trump campaign or something along those lines?
  4. DH told all of us that Politico was fake news.
  5. And HM, I did tell you he was too dense to get the point.
  6. ^^^Had to have the purpose of the Doberman thread explained to him. Calls other people "simpletons".
  7. And yet...he's still too dense to understand the point.
  8. He can't help himself. "HM started it but I didn't make this thread to get back, that was just a second consideration, but it was totes about praising Deal and not about the Doberman thread even though that was the second reason." And the Doberman thread was obviously about parodying Snake's ridiculous anti-Muslim rhetoric, using the same "logic" he applies to Muslims to attack Dobermans. It had a point to make. This thread is just unmitigated d-baggery and nothing else.
  9. Oh I get that and I agree that reform is necessary. But the talk from Republicans and Trump is just about rate cuts. A lower rate (but nowhere near 15%) in exchange for closing all loopholes makes sense to me. But what they're talking about doesn't.
  10. I would love to hear a defense of Trump using the State Dept and embassies to promote his country club from one of Trump's supporters.
  11. Trump proposing a 15% corporate tax rate. Like s*** on a cold biscuit.
  12. DRAIN THE SWAMP!! State Department, U.S. embassies promoting Trump's Mar-a-Lago By DARREN SAMUELSOHN 04/24/17 03:50 PM EDT President Donald Trump isn’t the only one promoting his private Mar-a-Lago club as the “winter White House.” His foreign policy team is doing it too. The State Department and at least two U.S. embassies — the United Kingdom and Albania — earlier this month circulated a 400-word blog post detailing the long history of the president’s private South Florida club, which has been open to dues-paying members since the mid-1990s and is now used by Trump for frequent weekend getaways. He has hosted foreign leaders there twice. The blog post — written by the State Department-managed site Share America — describes the “dream deferred” when Mar-a-Lago’s original builder, Marjorie Merriweather Post, willed the property to the federal government upon her death in 1973, with the stipulation it be used as a winter retreat for the president. “Her plan didn’t work, however,” the post’s author, Leigh Hartman, wrote, explaining how the government returned the property to Post’s trust because it cost too much money to maintain. Trump bought the property and its furniture in 1985, and he opened it a decade later as a private club. “Post’s dream of a winter White House came true with Trump’s election in 2016,” Hartman wrote. The State Department’s efforts to share Hartman’s article – originally published just before Trump hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago -- drew newfound attention Monday after reporters linked to it on Twitter. Democrats quickly piled on.l Norm Eisen, a former White House ethics attorney and frequent Trump critic, said the State Department ran afoul of U.S. laws prohibiting public officials from using their office for private gain. Those violations “have gone viral thruout [sic] our embassies,” he wrote on Twitter. “Trump gutting foreign aid to covert embassies 2 trump promo outlets!” Oregon Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) also slammed Trump’s administration, linking to an April 5 tweet from the State Department’s Economic & Business Affairs office that promoted the president’s club by asking: “Curious about the President’s winter White House also known as Mar-a-Lago?” “Yes, I am curious @StateDept. Why are taxpayer $$ promoting the President’s private country club,” Wyden asked Monday on Twitter. A few minutes later, the senator postedthe full Share America article “in its kleptocratic glory.” State Department and embassy officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
  13. This is the last picture taken before this vicious monster mauled and killed an entire family in Albuquerque last year.
  14. My neighbor owns a Doberman and he agrees they are malicious, dangerous beasts.
  15. They are dangerous, vicious beasts bred only to mutilate people and animals. How anybody could own one is beyond me.
