OK but that's just a different "They" and a different "Something." Also Aligators don't eat people. Crocodiles! They're the ones!

You’re right. Crocodiles.

Tick tock. Tick tock.

I knew this story  had a hook.



I read a review of it. It got panned.


Hehe.   Probably because of the small peter that wouldn't grow up.

LOL, indeed,  the Onion couldn't produce funnier material than this.

And now I see.....

This circus has at least 3 rings.

I see the Giulani appointment as some sort of clumsy attempt at optics, both for the general public ("look, we teamed up with Mueller's old pal, so how could we be hiding anything??") and for the special counsel's investigation ("look, here's your old pal joining the table, Bob....we clearly want everything to go smoothly and keep this all friendly-like....")

Whatever happens, we now have better documentation of an attempt at obstruction, an attempt at influencing an active criminal investigation by pressuring the FBI, and then derailing that investigation by firing the head.  You need motive?  It's clearer than ever now.  So it doesn't matter if Clarence Darrow is sitting at the table when Trump is deposed.  (hey, neat double meaning there)

...some of the most beautiful hookers in the world

Just mentioned in passing I'm sure...

The real gem to be found - Kid, you will love this - is what Donald Trump himself tweeted just one day earlier before that particular meeting with James Comey which took place on 8 February 2017 (from which my above quote comes):

 
Quote
   7.11 am 7 Feb 2017
    “I don’t know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy - yet Obama can make a deal with Iran, #1 in terror, no problem !


Note the timestamp on that Tweet. Trump is such a complete imbecile he either cannot remember what he posted on his own Twitter feed just 24 hours earlier, or is incapable of telling consistent lies from one day to another.  One day later, he tells Comey that Putin, who he just claimed he doesn't know, confided to him that Russia has some of the world's most beautiful hookers.

And knicks not to unduly tax your capacity, but to clear up my real point, which you missed, or misunderstood, as you did with my other observations,

 knicks I make fun of stupidity, Red's, kid's, or yours, color doesn't matter to me.

I've only recognized that ignorance and intransigience is free of color.


and it escaped you because you're not very bright.




I said what I had to say. You don’t like? Cool.

But calling me stupid or not very bright is ridiculous on your part because you know it isn’t true but yet you must assert your dominance. I understand that. It’s what white people do.

I was agreeing  on J Baldwin and the rage as a fitting  response.   I was agreeing  that the "not bright" ad hominem was unnecessary -- and maybe that's a guy thing,  punching  and counterpunching, but your last line about what white people do seemed no better than  Bambi and his line about blacks carving their world out for themselves.  You write with eloquence here from time to time,  IMO,  but you will reach for racist mud to sling just like a lot of people do when they are pissed.   I would  guess it's  more frustration with not getting something  across than real venom.   I truly hope you don't believe white folks are all about asserting dominance.  Some are.   Usually the ones who fester with insecurities and need for control.

For.what it is worth, I do not believe this is accurate. Repos are a huge registration advantage here. Dr. Tipirneni has worked the district much more than previous Dems, but anything under double digits would surprise me immensely.

What's weird is that was a landline poll.  Which would tend to skew Repub, wouldn't it?  So the dead heat result is all the more perplexing.  I don't understand, as a general thing, why landline polls are even remotely considered valid nowadays.

Bambu, you need to stop draining your life force into booze benders and dingo vaginas.

Fuck Starbucks and fuck that woman who worked for them who called the police and had 2 black men arrested for basically sitting there and waiting for a friend to arrive before ordering.  If an incident like this doesn't dope slap you into consciousness regarding racism in the U.S. then your IQ is lower...than my dress size. 

What I find so contemptible is that this retarded [female expletive even I won't use] couldn't even engage these men in some kind of rational dialog to determine that they were sitting there not ordering for the same fucking reason that 47 pazillion previous white customers have sat in a Starbucks not ordering (and not getting arrested). 

Godammit, what is wrong with people??

White folks, especially men, be like Slim Pickens riding the bomb in Dr. Strangelove...



http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/economy-helps-trump-approval-personality-women-poll/story?id=54445035

Thought women like tall, rich, strong and powerful men.
Thought women in general will do anything to live in a $3m house, have nice cars and a very large expense account.

Mr. Bambu, your grasp of "women in general" is deeply in error.

You are a master of tact and understatement, Ev.

LBJ was the first president to show he was the boss, running to war half cocked with The Gulf of Tonkin Resolution.  By 1968 when the CRA was passed a majority of citizens were sick of him and his bloody war, rioting in the streets. MLK was not fooled but the congress was. Now you have this crazy pushing the power of the office with nothing reconciliatory. Please, make him go away!
Your insbility  to understand Article Two is noted.
Inability?

So Article 2 expert, why was there a Gulf of Tonkin Resolution? Or the recently re-enacted AUMF?
Ask Congress. But even under them the Syrian action was legit. 
It is amazing that most of the yappers  in here keep predicting a fascist like Trump will lead us to nuclear war. Yet the Syrian action was a coalition including France and the U.K., was targeted to Assad’s illegal poisonous gas production,avoided Russian or Iranian targets, and was clearly not an act of War.
Putin’s defenses were silent either because they are incompetent or he saw no reason to intervene.
His perfunctory UN Resolution of Condemnation went nowhere.
The justification for the action and the legal authorization for it are separate matters. But you knew that. Just like you knew the answer to my question and deliberately chose not to answer.

And just to remind, this started because you ignorantly likened the attack on Syria for which there was no Confessional authorization to the attack on ISIS, for.which there is.

Yeah, why didn't they run it past the nearest priest?

Thought you were another spammer or spambot. 

If not, then take my rejoinder as a joke, too. 

Most of the recent newbies, since the site crash last September, have been sock puppets, so try not to take it too seriously if you get some suspicious looks.  Cheers.

(Veteran members have made your joke several times lately.... I guess it's hard to resist that one...)
