Racist sexist reactionary assholes should be worried about aggression from decent people of every political and religious orientation. That is how we keep civilization civilized.

The trump administration canít vet. If they could vet, trump and pence would have to be removed. It is scumbags and criminality that are trickling down, not prosperity.

She makes a lot of damn good points. Itís no wonder most of those who voted in 2016 wanted her to be President.

Defanging fascist billionaires is the project of the decade, starting with Mercers and Kochs.

Seems like Brett is hitting a few road bumps on his way to a stolen seat.

One candidate, staffer, and nominee after another, trump is having a harder time normalizing rapey behavior and rapey individuals than he thought he would.

Porter, Moore, and Kavanaugh are all peas in a pod.

Also based on those identical trends, year 1 to year 2, his 2pt percentage should fall to .250, he should pull 0.1 rebounds, and he should play in 3 total games.

Maybe as a guy who knows his NBA career is on the line, he has transformed himself into a much more useful player. The picture will get clearer in a couple of weeks.

Come - We will invest in you here because you will return the investment ten-fold unless our insecurities hamstring our society and we treat you like dicks because listening to idiots like Kid, thatís what weíve become.

Since you have zero basis for this, I am not going to believe you.

Baker is going to lock down Jimmer in pretty white boy battles in the Far East.

Tony

I will indeed pray for you, sir.

But two things about your passage:

Selfishness causes depression?  Really?

And as for the immigrants "afraid to go to the police" - too much made of this.  Someone does you wrong - you say so.

Probably not if you're in the country illegally.

So when you report a crime the first thing they do is see if you are a citizen?

I dont think so.

That was the whole point of a sane, non-rabid immigration policy now referred to as a ďsanctuaryĒ policy. It explicitly removes that concern.

Considering the people pulled from school, hospital, court, work, etc., to get locked up and deported under the dumb ass zero tolerance policy there is no reason to think you wonít get snatched and sent to a for profit prison used up for slave labor then deported whether you are here legally or no for the simple act of reporting a crime.

Itís a two pronged attack by trump and his craven republican minions to turn American cities back in to war torn hellscapes.

Itís why immoral fucks who wanted Bush to be more like Hitler are so happy to support trump.

No question Trier is better than Baker. I wonder if Allen is better Trier at this point as well as being better than Baker. If so, Allen should get Bakerís spot and Trier should remain a 2-way guy.

 Reflecting on the rally a year later, in an interview with local media KTAR, Sinema said the war was about American access to oil.
"So this is not about the United States doing the right and moral thing by a toppling an evil dictator," she said. "This is more about the United States having access to the oil and the power and control and world stature that it's seeking. It's not about the individuals in Iraq."   

heh

yeah - the prevailing "wisdom" of the time.

Even more ridiculous now

Itís only ridiculous because your k-pop band of wanna be tyrants and empire builders failed epically. The goal was to have the war pay for itself through Iraqi petroleum concessions. When it turned out Rummy and Brenner didnít have the juice or organizational acumen to pull it off, the corrupt party of crime and incompetence did what it always does when it fails. It moves the goal posts.

This is why you and Mrs. Kid disagree so sharply about how many years itís been since youíve had sex.

On the bright side, thereís really good money in putting degenerate treasonous losers like the ones you mention in their place. Really really good money.

They want Trump to take more blame for PR.

That could only happen if he were actually president. Since he hasnít won any elections and hasnít been fulfilling any governmental functions, the buck obviously wouldnít stop with him.

The republicans should have run a candidate for president in 2016.

Further -

Trump's statement, "They are just trying to make me look bad"

is true.
Nobody has to try to make Trump look bad.

Defending trump makes kid look bad, so someone is looking worse because of trump.

The Nixon guys were very explicit in their retrospectives about the reasoning behind their decision to ratchet up the drug war. The White Caucus, which spans both parties but consumes the vast majority of the goons on the right, has held that line and cultivated those tools as it has evolved. The work to get America to disempower its racists is going to be like hunting pythons in the Everglades Iím afraid.

Shit, America is so racist, protesting racism and police brutality is seen as Un-American

Thatís mainly on the wrong side of the tracks in the cracked-up part of towns. Most places see it every day and are ready to try new approaches and force old demons to either change or get out of the way. Roy Moore and Sheriff Joe stripped of power now must resort to taking it out on friends and family.

The tide of stupid bigotry has been coming in awful hard, but thatís no reason to stop swinging our buckets.
