heh

poor Red when the truth is inconvenient just he resorts to distort and distract

More 3-card Donnie

The Repubs have the House, Senate, WH, and McConnell has openly cried he's got no idea what Trump will Chekov (heh) on. And Trump reneged on the bi-partisan deal hammered and sickled out.

Repubs have shown they can't be trusted to govern, and only the theft of $1.5 trillion and the ability to screw the middle class and vulnerable Americans, got them 51 votes in the Senate.

Schumer’s shutdown plans deliberately targeted January 20 as the obvious date.  
His political capital runs out at midnight.

In fact, it was Mr. Trump who opted not to accept a deal that he and Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the top Senate Democrat, had hashed out over lunch at the White House on Friday. Such an agreement would have kept the government open, funded a border wall and extended legal status to undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, while including disaster aid funds and money for a federal children’s health insurance program. John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff, later called Mr. Schumer to say the agreement lacked sufficient immigration restrictions.

15+ game score in 18 of 31 games.  20+ 12 times.  30+ 2 times.  47.9 as a high.  5 games under 10.0

For comparison's sake, Porzingis -

15+ in 21 out of 39 games.  20+ 13 times. 30+ 1 time.  34.3 as a high.  11 games under 10.0

Heyyyyy.how ya doin, pal?

The stats are right

Now go see what a game score is.


Get your fucking stats correct.  Porzingis has some of  the most 30pt games in the league. Embiid is fragile.  Popularity contest of fans who were drooling over ESPN hype voted him a starter.  Coaches and players went Porzingis.

Note to the Right also for and from the Left.

It is what it is.

The guy is susceptible to flattery. Condemnation will get you less than nowhere.

We'd like to think this is a peculiar trait. and while it is an "In Extreme" example of the condition it is not unique to Trump.

Watching Nick Mulvaney on Face The Nation and he let it fly.

It is important to note here, that there are degrees (see the "New Rules" by Bill Maher in re #MeToo -> #MeCarthyism) to the insult thrown. This is something that is bothersome, less than when GWB pronounced it "Nukular" proudly displaying dyslexia and illiteracy somehow simultaneously, yet more than "Have A Good Day."

It is certainly less annoying than the N word is to anybody it is directed at. But the way Mulvaney launched it, not even seeming to care that it is a pejorative is along the definition of systemic racism, the racism we don't even think of as present. I refer. of course, to his use of the term "Democrat Party."

Why is it "Democratic Party" versus "Democrat Party?" IDK, perhaps because "Democrat" is singular and that makes the single word an oxymoron. And maybe that's why the wags like to use the term, because it trivializes the power of the many. "Democrats of the nation unite!"

Are Democrats "democratic?" As a party, I'd be able to say both Yes and No. The government isn't a true democracy anyway, so having a faction of the government that runs as a true democracy would do nothing but cede all power to the party that runs as an oligarchy. (Theoretically.) But the ideal is still there. That the majority of the time, the majority of the people know enough about the situation to come to a sensible solution to what the reality is.

Was there other stuff that Mulvaney said that was disturbing? Yeah. sure, as I see it he was lying out his shithole, spewing shit and blaming everyone else for the stink, that he also insists is the fragrance of flowers!

So when RSW says "Democrat Party" he knows he's being insulting. And we know that it's childish for him to taunt people he is supposedly having a conversation with. And, duck's back, who cares what he says? it's just more of the same.  I don't know if Nick Mulvaney meant to be insulting, that's part in parcel why there is the dysfunction in D.C., there is no self reflection required in the party of the oligarchs.   

It’s a deliberate slur dating back to pre McCarthy days but codified by Newt Gingrich in the mid 90s with the GOP’s messaging guru Frank Luntz.

interesting game yesterday.

paul was on fire and curry was not.  don't expect that to repeat over a 7 game series.

GS is the favorite to repeat.

OKC still has no bench and the Cavs are clearly not interested in playing hard.  LeBron looked disgusted with his teammates.

why is JR smith starting?  the guy is cooked.  done.  finished. 

if anyone thinks he stays in Cleveland then you are a Cleveland fan and in denial.

Listening to Mitch McConnell complain about the politics in politics is the height of hypocrisy and pretty funny.

Two words for Turtle Head: Neil Gorsuch.

That's WISDOM, not politics.

When the GOP brownshirts goose step down PA Avenue NW you won’t  be asking “what happened? How did we get here?” you’ll be right there cheering them on.
