I'll also note that every Jew doing that would be tantamount to ethnic cleansing, there would thus be no Jews remaining in the US.

Stop. Please stop.

get ready for giant budget deficits

Yes. It will be interesting to see how the left finds a way to attack this though.

The same way the right did by attacking Obama's deficits after years of Reagan and the Bushes driving the debt through the roof.

Of course Democrats have Bill Clinton's legacy as proof they can balanc a budget. Republicans have Eisenhower for those who still remember him.

At this point, aren't they both equally irrelevant to now?

Fair enough.

It's always worth remembering that Bannon really is scary, but I can't help laughing at how his media image is outright demonic while Paul Ryan's intentions, which are just as radical in their own fashion, have been treated by DC journalists as the height of serious, urbane wonkery for years.

THANK YOU! Cheesy

I hope Curtis wins the primary, she seems like the most formidable Democrat in the field.

Republicans hope she wins too. Just sayin'

Collins only votes against her party when she'll be the 48th or 49th vote. Never the 50th, if you get what I mean.

I never thought I'd say this, but the white nationalist guy from the Trump administration is right.

I don't agree with the title of this thread........it's about time someone told these guys like it is.....we're coming to destroy you. 

lol Trump cultists still buying his campaign slogans....I guess Mexico's gonna pay for the wall is no longer avaliable

I see nothing wrong with calling out ISIS........but I do want results, not slogans.  Kthx.
Reread. (or read) the article, Grumps. We need to fight ISIS intelligently based on thought out long ccrafted intelligence analysis , not based on the feelgood drunk at the end of the bar mentality.

It's not a matter of elitism , its avoiding counterproductively HELPING Daeish.
87  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Americans Getting Cold Feet on Repealing Obamacare on: February 28, 2017, 09:20:55 am
And now, John Boehner says ObamaCare will stay the law of the land. I'm in complete agreement. There will be mild modifications, probably requested by the governors, but the Medicare expansion is here to stay, so are the exchanges, and so are the subsidies (guess who they go to? That's right, a lot of Trump voters!). Big Pharma and all the people who benefit will stand on the tracks to stop the repeal.  

I imagine the Trump base will move on swiftly to other issues and the GOP will gain collective amnesia that they ever wanted to repeal the law. In five years, it will be remembered as the "Affordable Care Act," not "ObamaCare."

Obama's victory on his healthcare law is breathtaking. He rolled the dice and it looks like he's won the game after all. And it looks like ObamaCare will be the transition point between our prior system and single payer. (Or as they will call it, "Medicare for All.")

The RNC really fumbled badly on not using the 5 years to come up with a replacement plan.

I'm not seeing how Obamacare will be replaced by single-payer if Republicans end up repairing (instead of repealing) it.  If it's running like a well-oiled machine by the time 2020 rolls around, there will be very little incentive to take the next step and institute single-payer.  And -apart from some left-wing activists- why would we?  Why change that which is no longer broken?  Unless you are proposing it will be done by stealth, step-by-step, without anyone noticing.   

The real next battleground is instituting the public option, which most analysts (CBO, OMB, plenty of private sector and academic experts) agree would help bigly in slowing costs.
88  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Protestors confront politicians at town halls megathread on: February 28, 2017, 09:13:13 am
Technically doesn't belong in this thread, since it's about a lack of town halls, but:

Flawless Marco: I won't do town halls because people might yell at me

I'm glad I voted for John Kasich instead of Marco Rubio in the Virginia GOP primaries. What a spineless weasel.

dittoo (for Ohio of course)

Broken Clock

on at least 4 different points at once, though. Credit where credit is due.

who knows?  maybe he'll be the Republican version of Jimmy Carter period and ineffective president who was a vastly superior source of moral guidance after he left office. He'll of course never hold a candle to Saint Jimmy in that regard comma but he could do a great deal of help for the country and showing that aversion to trumps crazy extremism is hardly partisan
90  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: President Trump orders his steak well done with ketchup on: February 28, 2017, 09:06:19 am
This is the second time I've read such a story about Trump. A worker from Kathie Lee Gifford's yacht reported when Trump was a guest there they served him fine Kobe beef cooked appropriately at medium-rare to rare temperature. Trump or it sent back and cooked very well done, and after it was returned he proceeded to douse it with catch up. Kobe friggin beef!

Yet another reason to dislike this guy. One would think with his Persona at least he's the kind of guy that would enjoy some great 25 year old single malt scotch or fine wine that one could relate to- - assuming Yours Truly could afford such beverages - - but no, he's going to freaking teetotaler. Not a thing about this guy I can even personally find to like.

97  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: 8 people flee U.S border patrol to seek asylum in Canada on: February 23, 2017, 03:32:21 am
The sad part is that both sides have slipped into the surreal quagmire of unrealistic immigration views.



Right - No Immigration
Left - No Limits on any one crossing any borders

This is insane of course.

1. You have to have immigration
2. You have to restrict and control who comes in and out of your country.

The lack of the latter, for so long a period of time, is the precise reason you now have so many people now oppose the former entirely. Anyone with eyes could have seen this coming and many have warned about it for years, including myself.



I'm not aware of anyone oon the left of note arguing for open borders. That argument. Was usuallly spewed by Libertarian (note the capital L) types.

Of course, the right isn't QUITE opposing ALL immigration--yet. Just non-whites (usually not overtly stated that way outside of Atlasfront, of course, but nevertheless.....)

Exactly. Jesus died so Heaven didn't need extreme vetting.
