Bye, dumbfuck.

No one could blame Stebben84 for deciding he's got better things to do with his time, but losing another actual contributor at the hands of this abusive troll is a real shame.

Re: if we're gonna insist on being technical about it

Wait a second -- what's this? You acknowledge that the actual name of the Democratic Party is... the Democratic Party (of wherever...)? So when referring to it by its' correct name as a political party -- as opposed to the various nicknames used for its' members, supporters or adherents and the der...

"A tireless champion of the rule of law"

Joe Arpaio once faked an assassination attempt against himself, to gain sympathy and TV coverage ahead of an election. The (innocent) man he accused spent four years in jail, waiting for his "trial" for a nonexistent crime. When the guy Arpaio attempted to frame for the phony "assassi...

Major security breach in Oval Office

A year ago Donald Trump had a very strange meeting in the Oval Office with Russian foreign minister Lavrov and ambassador Kislyak. During the meeting, Trump told Lavrov about a critically important Israeli intelligence operation : Israel had succeeded in placing a listening device in an ISIS safe ho...

Re: Lower Voting Age to 16?

Let me ask you both something. What about people with a mental disability? Should they not be allowed to vote? We currently don't allow 17-year-olds to vote. Does that mean that people with a mental disability are also not allowed to vote? My dad is 83 and he is a hell of a lot more informed than s...

Re: Lower Voting Age to 16?

Lower Voting Age to 16? I've said this before , and I'll say it again. There should be a maximum age for voting and running for key offices (like the minimums of 18, 25, 30, and 35). Say, nobody votes or runs for office after 65. Nothing personal against all you boomers out there. I'd be fine with ...

Re: Election day

Excellent. In a district that had been R+21 in 2016 and R+25 in 2012, Hiral Tipirneni came within 5 points of winning. That's a 16- to 20-point swing towards the Democrats ... exactly in line with other recent special elections. This district is as Republican as can be. It's overwhelmingly white, el...

Henry Vilas wrote:Cohen to take the Fifth

I'm not surprised. Cohen is hoping for a pardon from Trump. But that won't help him get out of state charges or civil suits.

To be clear, this is in Cohen's civil case (a lawsuit filed by Stormy Daniels). It's not the SDNY FBI investigation.
