How about the role Palestinians played in the ACTUAL Holocaust?

Yeah. How about the role Palestinians played in ACTUAL Holocaus?

I know you won’t respond because that conservatives do, throw out some bullshit, get it knocked down but ignore the facts and then throw out more bullshit.


WTF is a mufti?

There goes the rest of your credibility on international affairs or religious matters, not that there was much there to begin with.

Donald’s subtle way of letting us know he expects to be indicted soon for more fraud and racketeering.

If he’s sure he’s that sloppy and dirty, I won’t argue with him.

Proposed: An act to compel the IRS to publish the federal tax returns of the President, Vice President, highest ranking member of every executive department, their immediate families, and any private entities in which any aforementioned party owns ownership stake as a majority or minority partner with or without operational control.

Questions for investigation and debate include what would it entail to give the public a full fair and accurate accounting of the personal financial interests influencing behavior and policy in the executive branch?

Is is sufficient to publish only those currently serving, or should the recent tax history of candidates and appointees prior to confirmation also be mandated?

Re:  "Republican screw ups"

Well... we got the important one right in 2016.

McCain couldnt get it done.  Mitt (who should have been nominated in '08) fell short in '12.

Got it right this time.  Nominated a guy/gal who could win.

Let's see if you guys can match.

No, Kiiid, you got it wrong.

This is what I mean about being unable to admit mistakes.

You will burn for your sins. Unfortunately, so will the rest of us.

I happen to think this presidency is going just fine.

You don't - because you think he is a loud mouth prick.

Open your mind to the state of the nation.

No, Kiiid, open your mind to what I am saying.

He is a loud mouthed prick. It's not why I think this presidency is going poorly. I thought Bill Clinton was a loud mouthed prick, too, if more cogent.

I think the refusal of this president to address Russian interference with our elections is terrible.

I think the failure of this president to even begin to the address global warming is criminal.

I think the active efforts of this president to unravel environmental protections is unconscionable.

I think the decisions of this president to undo decades of civil rights protections is evil.

I think the embrace of dictators and "strong men" leaders by this president is irresponsible.

I think the repeated undermining of our intelligence services, the FBI, and the news sources are revolting, uncalled for, and destructive of this country.

I think the verbiage and actions of this president that are tantamount to endorsement of white nationalism are hateful and incite violence against minorities, including (but not restricted to) Muslims and Jews.



Is that clear and specific enough for you, Kiiid?

Can you hear me now?!

To paraphrase you, "Open your mind to the state of the country and the world."

I respect the effort.  And could add considerably to your list.  But the fact is, we post substantive critiques of this "President" on this forum every day.  kiidcarter8, because he likes the racism, the homophobia, and the anti-abortion judges, has decided that those critiques have no merit.  Not because he can disqualify them with facts.  Just because.

And I have no issue, for the record, with Presidents being loud-mouthed pricks if they can back it up (ie. Teddy Roosevelt) when their words are ones of conviction, and when people address them with respect because they come from a person they respect.

Trump's loud words are hot air and lies, which not only our international opponents but even his own people ignore.  As David Frum wrote recently on NK:

North Korea has resumed missile testing, disregarding both Trump’s wooing and his threats of “fire and fury.” It has taken the U.S. president’s measure—and found him weak and empty.

If you bring facts, they will be respected.  You're among grownups, kid.  As Moynihan said, we're all entitled to our own opinions, but we aren't entitled to our own facts.  Facts consist of true statements about reality.  Facts are the statements no one can poke holes in.  Water is wet.  Tucson is often sunny.  Fire stops when you cut off the oxygen. The national debt is so many dollars.  If you've got solid ones, great.  If you don't, then you can be grateful for advancing your learning when someone pokes holes in bad information.  This is the process by which we all stay intellectually honest. 

I'd like to think you're not just making excuses and ducking a chance to increase knowledge.

News Item - May 16,2019


Something rather remarkable just happened in Idaho. The state legislature opted to—in essence—repeal the entire state regulatory code. The cause may have been dysfunction across legislative chambers, but the result is serendipitous. A new governor is presented with an unprecedented opportunity to repeal an outdated and burdensome regulatory code and replace it with a more streamlined and sensible set of rules. Other states should be paying close attention.

The situation came about due to the somewhat unconventional nature of Idaho’s regulatory process. Each year, the state’s entire existing body of regulations expires unless reauthorized for an additional year by the legislature. In most years, reauthorization happens smoothly, but not this year.

Instead, the legislature wrapped up an acrimonious session in April without passing a rule-reauthorization bill. As a result, come July 1, some 8,200 pages of regulations containing 736 chapters of state rules will expire. Any rules the governor opts to keep will have to be implemented as emergency regulations, and the legislature will consider them anew when it returns next January.

Idaho lawmakers have essentially seen the governor and raised him through the roof. Earlier this year, Gov. Little followed the example of President Donald Trump and issued an executive order requiring state agencies to cut two existing rules for every new one they impose.

A hellscape for Idahoans but an absolutely heavenly playland for industry lobbyists.
