Re: HOOOO.LLLLEEEE.SHIT.

It looks like he is winning. I predicted up-thread that he would, in part because Montana is a very conservative state and in part because most of the votes had already been cast by mail. I think he will be seated unless convicted. Huh. I didn't even bother addressing the question of whether he'll ...

Sprats

We don't have these in the lakes, do we? I believe they are saltwater fish, but could be wrong.

Re: HOOOO.LLLLEEEE.SHIT.

I know you're being all humorous and ironical and all, but in the interests of accuracy there were at least three Fox News employees who witnessed the event: Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him. Faith, Keith and I watched in disbelief as Gi...

Bats

Is that white-nose disease still killing off all our bats in WI? If so, does that mean more mosquitoes this summer around the lakes?

Re: HOOOO.LLLLEEEE.SHIT.

I dunno, bdog; I'm not sure where you're going with this. Are you questioning the eyewitness accounts of what happened? Unlike the Prosser case (sorry, Shortbeav) there doesn't seem like a lot of room for ambiguity or doubt here. Or maybe you're just marveling at Jacobs's ability to recover from tha...

Re: The GOP's health care dilemma

This is a really good summary of the core problem for small-government conservatives on health care: Why Republicans can't fix health insurance The more market-oriented your approach, the more it’s going to cost. https://www.vox.com/health-care/2017/5/25/15688408/government-insurance-is-cheaper?utm_...

Carrier lays off workers, moves jobs to Mexico

Trump said he would save jobs at Carrier. The layoffs start July 20. Carrier, the company President Trump pledged to keep on American soil , informed the state of Indiana this week that it will soon begin cutting 632 workers from an Indianapolis factory. The manufacturing jobs will move to Monterre...

Re: A hypothetical question

Guess I spoke too soon there. The Manchester bombing leaks have taken a turn for the much worse: U.S. Reportedly Cut Off From Manchester Attack Intelligence After Leaks to Press BBC reports that British police are “furious” because they believe the photos [of bomb remnants, i.e. evidence] were leake...

Re: HOOOO.LLLLEEEE.SHIT.

Is it normal for police to take statements and then allow someone to walk away, when there are eyewitnesses who saw him commit an assault like that? Just curious ... I kind of assumed that if you did that you'd be arrested, rather than allowed to leave the scene. But what do I know, after nearly 20 ...

Re: HOOOO.LLLLEEEE.SHIT.

Yeah, I had some of the same questions (about what exactly is a "body slam"). Here's what the Fox News people said happened: Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him. Faith, Keith and I watched in disbelief as Gianforte then began punc...

Caveat: note the broken Y axis at left. It looks like Trumpcare would more than double the number of uninsured, but it's actually slightly less than a doubling.

Re: The GOP's health care dilemma

So let's see. TrumpCare v3 still destroys health coverage for 23 million people . It weakens the protections for people with pre-existing conditions . It allows insurance companies to provide "coverage" that doesn't cover emergency care, outpatient care, pregnancy, medications, or other co...
