It wasn't a question.
ROFL!

It means why does what a Virginia legislature do have any concern for you other than to shove it up the rear of those pushy gun-grabbers.
You're not too bright are you? That's a question.
And I answered.
The answer Ward gave was, "No, I'm not to bright. How could you tell?"

Yes, that is a statement.

"The biggest danger to Australia today is Conservative politicians who are embracing the leftist/green "net zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2050" drivel" - no1 radio host.

He didn't say 'drivel', he said some other word that means the same thing...maybe "bulldust".
In another rant about it he said 'fantasy'.

#1 radio host is full of #2.

Laughing my ass off

Every Sunday it seems Chris Wallace goes after Kelly Ann Conway re:  Trump. 

Same result.  No sale.

No one is buying trump, but she sure offers a sad pitch for America’s single worst product.

The better sales people have all found better opportunities by now.

Wishful thinking on your part, methinks.
Many people are buying Trump.
Wouldn't surprise me if he gets re elected.

Many outside of America are also cheering for Trump to be re-elected, as they see him as their only hope.

Yup.

About 20% of the rest of the world is still "many," even if a much lower percentage than you are thinking. Bambi.

I think they're from New York so it's a Constitutional no-no.

She can move to Wyoming.

Worked for Cheney!

How do you know when Trump is lying?

His lips (or pen) are moving:

Quote

“But as it turns out, a related question soon emerged about the Republican's case study. The Philadelphia Inquirer took a closer look:

“President Donald Trump turned a Philadelphia fourth grader into a poster child for the school-choice movement Tuesday when he told the nation that thousands of students were "trapped in failing government schools" and announced that the girl was at last getting a scholarship to attend the school of her choice.

“But Janiyah Davis already attends one of the city's most sought-after charter schools, The Inquirer has learned. In September, months before she was an honored guest at Trump's State of the Union address, she entered Math, Science and Technology Community Charter School III.

“Oh. So Trump was delighted to announce that Janiyah Davis' family would receive a voucher so that she could attend a good school, but in reality, the Philadelphia fourth-grader is already going to a good school -- which receives public funding, and which doesn't charge anything in tuition.

“The Inquirer article added, "How she landed in the audience during Trump's prime-time speech Tuesday remains a bit of a mystery even to Janiyah's mother, Stephanie Davis."

“The girl's mother added that she doesn't see her daughter's current school as one "you want to get out of at all." Davis added, "I view it as a great opportunity."”

Ways to know that Mike Bloomberg is not serious about wanting to be the Democratic nominee, part 357. Mind you, the URL/headline oversells it for clicks. "is thinking about" is a more accurate reflection on reality.

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/02/banana-republic-judge-slammed-doj-for-stringing-along-mccabe-investigation-to-help-trump-politically/

Quote
According to revelations from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), Justice Department attorneys were met with “mounting frustration and skepticism” from a federal judge regarding documents related to the investigation of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, The Daily Beast reports.

According to federal judge Reggie Barnett Walton, President Trump’s involvement in the McCabe investigation was “disturbing,” a “mess,” and reflected a “banana republic.”

“I think it’s very unfortunate,” Judge Walton told prosecutors as the case stalled in late September. “And I think as a government and as a society we’re going to pay a price at some point for this.”

Quote
Republican Sen. Ben Sasse (Neb.) rebuked President Trump's latest attack against the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Monday, warning Trump that the United States "is not some banana republic."

Sasse condemned Trump's tweets Monday afternoon in which the president criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions for pursuing criminal charges against two GOP congressmen.

Trump argued that Sessions should have taken into account the political ramifications of pursuing the cases against GOP Reps. Chris Collins (N.Y.) and Duncan Hunter (Calif.), who were both early backers of Trump.

“The United States is not some banana republic with a two-tiered system of justice – one for the majority party and one for the minority party," Sasse responded in a statement.

Trump has had Barr create a special Adderall division at the DOJ to manufacture evidence to support his paranoid delusions and to attempt to confuse the trail of his criminal rampage.

President Donald Trump is deeply invested in the idea that there is a "Deep State" embedded within the government bureaucracy -- and centered in the Department of Justice -- which actively worked to defeat him in 2016 and then sought to undermine him once he won the presidency.

That conspiracy theory, which has never had much merit, suffered a near-fatal blow Friday afternoon when the Department of Justice declined to pursue criminal charges against former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe.

I know plenty about med and hospital bills.  Does take a chunk of your rainy day fund and other savings.  I would recommend to your friend the very popular GO FUND ME avenue.  No shame in this.

Lots of shame in this - not theirs, but society's shame.

Looks like Barr's complaints were issued with Trump's advance permission, after all, give the Twitterer-in-Chief's only reaction has been to claim the absolute legal right to tell the doj what to do.

US reaches TRUCE deal with Taliban

Still just first stage but could lead to US troops leaving Afghanistan

At which time they resume doing what they were doing before we got involved.

And we will have wasted a ton of money and lives. while betraying even more people.

Oh boy.
