Re: What did Scott Walker know about Trump/Russia?

because the Russians felt that the Republicans would be more amenable to their cause. HOW DID THEY KNOW THAT? The same way we would I suppose. Russia is an oligarchy. The US oligarchy uses the Republican party to exercise control over the US. There's a natural affinity there. These people aren't co...

Re: They admit Russia meddled

After undermining NATO and calling EU a foe, Trump and his Sith Lord master are pretending the attacks didn't happen. So, really successful trip! I had similar thoughts this morning, thinking about Putin coaching Trump and referring to him as "my apprentice". Funny, in a very sad kind of ...

Re: Republicans: Are they food, or something else?

I've been to Sweden and Denmark. They're as free as we are, and seem like great places to live. Sure, taxes are a lot higher. But everyone gets health care. Their infrastructure frankly makes our country's look like a shithole by comparison, and you don't see homeless people all over their cities. I...

Re: Rath puff piece

They just held a test of the F-35 against the A-10, the results of which remain closely guarded. The idea has been that the F-35 would replace the A-10, but I've read that the A-10 seems to be superior in some areas. I'm not enough of a defense person to know what the hell that might mean for the h...

Re: They admit Russia meddled

Look, I'll never argue that more nukes are a good idea. Except for each country that could protect itself by having them. This is why North Korea will never give theirs up. They've seen what becomes of every regime/country that has made that mistake. Nuclear proliferation aside, I largely agree with...

Re: Minn leading WI in job creation

You can't win, you know. Supermarkets understaff their checkout lines so that there is a ridiculous wait time to check out. So people give up and self-checkout. They're good at this game.
BTW, same logic would apply to ATM'S, right?

I watched him say it on Colbert this week. I know it's not the source you're looking for, but I'm sure Weather Bob will get around to it.

This hasn't been disclosed to my knowledge. I believe that he and other responders arrived to evacuate people due to the gas leak, and were killed/injured by the explosion they were trying to protect others from.

Re: They admit Russia meddled

The indictments also showed that Putin lied to Trump when he told him that Russia did not meddle in our elections (Trump said he believed him). Does Trump still believe him and will he bring this up during his meeting with Putin? He said he would. I imagine Putin will lie again and Trump will belie...

Re: Adopting a Cat!

Sorry to hear about your neighbor, but when you're single and own a pet you tend to worry about what will happen to the pet if something happens to you. It's nice to have this one covered. I was thinking about this the other day. I'm sure this is a huge relief for your neighbor. Even if he has othe...
