Re: Republican Senate: Roadblock to good government
McConnell knows he desperately needs Russian help in 2020.

Re: Republican Senate: Roadblock to good government
It's the Democratic House that's the roadblock to good government, which is a gross understatement.

Re: What are the Rules for Radicals
So nothing? Not willing to point out which ones are evil? I expect nothing less from a troll.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Republican Senate: Roadblock to good government
Mitch McConnell is not in the House. He's the Senate majority leader. And the man who is ensuring we do nothing to protect against Russian hacking in 2020.

I wonder if that is connected to the fact that Russia supports Republicans.

And the evidence to support your assertion is ...?

As usual, nothing?

If there's one thing Trump does well it's negotiating.

Where's the China trade deal?

Where's the new Iran treaty?

Where's the deal between Israel and Palenstine?

Where's the deal with Democrats for a border wall?

I could go on and on and on.

The Republicans used the fillibuster a record number of times during the Obama administration. Republicans need to look in the mirror.

Republicans need to look in the mirror.

They shattered them years ago.

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

An exercise in futility. They cast no reflection.

Alabama Seeking the Bottom
Little known fact about Alabama, or at least I didn't know it: rapists can sue for custody rights of the children they conceive: For rape victims in Alabama, a second trauma

Let's summarize: Alabama forces raped women to carry the child to term, then allows the rapist to further torture them through custody battles.

Re: Alabama Seeking the Bottom
And it does happen.

https://www.independent.co.uk/...rental-rights-a8951751.html

quote:
That was the case for Jessica Stallings, who said she was 12 when her mother’s half-brother began climbing into her bed at night.

Before she turned 18, she had endured four pregnancies. The first ended in miscarriage, and one son died of a disease more likely to occur in cases of incest.

Then her family forced her to marry her uncle, she said.

Ms Stallings later fled, and a court deemed the marriage illegal because of a “familial relationship”.

She built a stable home in Fort Payne, Alabama, for her sons, now 15 and 12. But in the winter of 2017, she discovered that she was not yet free of the man she calls “Uncle Lenny”.

Despite DNA tests that proved incest, he maintained parental rights to the boys and fought Ms Stallings for visitation. A judge ruled he was entitled to see them for three days during Christmas.

Re: Can the right handle winning?
The border wall needs to be done. It's Congress that's making it impossible.

Well, thank god they're doing something right.


Eschew obfuscation. Habituate elucidation.

Trump enc felonies
https://amp.theguardian.com/...ctions-foreign-power-dirt-fbi

quote:
Donald Trump said on Wednesday that if a foreign power offered dirt on his 2020 opponent, he would be open to accepting it, claiming he would have no obligation to call in the FBI.

“I think I’d want to hear it,” Trump said in an interview with ABC News, adding: “There’s nothing wrong with listening.”



There is something wrong with listening; it's illegal.

quote:

(a) Prohibition. It shall be unlawful for—
(1) a foreign national, directly or indirectly, to make—
(A) a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State, or local election;
(B) a contribution or donation to a committee of a political party; or
(C) an expenditure, independent expenditure, or disbursement for an electioneering communication (within the meaning of section 30104(f)(3) of this title); or
(2) a person to solicit, accept, or receive a contribution or donation described in subparagraph (A) or (B) of paragraph (1) from a foreign national.

Of course Trump has no clue, but you'd think anyone who cares about election integrity would speak up.

ABE Fox and Friends mildly rebuked him. He's supposed to call them Friday morning.

Edited by JonF, : No reason given.

Or to put it another way - he’d be very happy to collude with the Russians.
