O’Reilly on Hannity last night. Great TV. And Hannity is slaughtering Maddow in ratings!! Folks saying the Moore win is bad for Trump. BS! It’s great ’cause Trump didn’t want to support Strange anyway. He did so for political expediency. Trump loves Moore and will be in AL repeatedly and enthusiastically. Bank on it! MAGA…slowly but surely. It took 50 years of Lib and Dem nonsense to get us in this mess. Getting out of it won’t happen overnight but it will happen. Ohhh, and you NFL weenies keep on kneeling! LOL!

Another self-proclaimed patriot that doesn’t know the difference between making people stand and salute the flag, and people wanting to stand and salute the flag.

So your theory is even though the GOP held the White House for 29 of the 50 years you cited, the “libs” were so much more powerful then folks like Nixon, Reagan and Bush Sr., and that time Bush Jr. was in office with full GOP control of congress, that the GOP was some how doing as the libs commanded to create “this mess”?

As a side note, what do you put in your coffee each morning before you type out your rewrites of history? I want to get some for my brother for Christmas.

Sis, the Dems controlled congress till 94. Next!

The Dems controlled the House till 1994. The senate had a few years of GOP control. There is also this thing called VETO if a GOP president wanted to make an issue go away. Not to mention most of the Dems became Republicans in the late 90s and 2000.

What point you are missing is both parties made the mess. And we the voters let them.

’94 was 23 years ago.

What “mess” started in the mid-to-late 1960s as a result of “Lib and Dem nonsense?”

I think ol’ Noway is trying to stake out his opposition to the Civil Rights Movement.

Keep up the “racist” meme, Drew, ’cause name calling is all you and your side have!

I don’t know what other 50 year “mess” brought about by “Lib and Dem nonsense” you, Roy Moore, and Donald Trump could all be opposed to. I mean, the Trump supporters in Charlottesville made it pretty clear what the Trump-Moore wing of the GOP thinks about civil rights.

I’ve read that Kaepernick (and others) have chosen “kneeling” as a way to express themselves specifically because it IS respectful.
Is there any conceivable circumstance where we would have imagined beforehand that kneeling could be redefined as disrespectful?
And yes, if a white guy had done the kneeling, would the reaction be the same?

For all the journalists who pretended to believe Republicans who pretended to care about Clinton’s e-mails: The NYT reports that many of Trump’s closest advisers, including Kushner, Ivanka, Bannon and Priebus, used private email to discuss White House matters.
.
The “lock her up” bunch is so outraged that they’re doing…….nothing. When you’re a Trump Republican, rules are for other people. And when you’re an establishment Republican, you do nothing. There’s no significant difference.

Hmm, I’m not sure I see the difference between a private server and, well, a private server?

The NFL owners and players have picked a wrong and costly approach by disrespecting our anthem. The diviseness will cause a revenue drop which won’t help with paying or public support for billion dollar stadiums or multimillion salaries. Halftime might be a better time to list grievances on police brutality, racism, giving illegals a voice, concussions, whatever, before one grabs all the attention.

Think I met an owner last night taking about lady liberty.

You say that halftime is a better time to list grievances on police brutality and racism, yet everyone at Fox News crapped their pants when Beyonce referenced Black Lives Matter during the Super Bowl halftime show. The truth is, it doesn’t matter when these players protest or how they elect to protest. If you’ll recall, Kaepernick started out by sitting during the anthem. Then, after consulting veteran’s groups, he began kneeling, as a way to signal that his protest wasn’t intended to disrespect the flag or our military. There’s only one acceptable form of protest for black folks in this… Read more »

Purina is opening a $320M manufacturing and distribution facility in Hartwell. The new plant will create up to 240 jobs over the next five years.

Sounds like Hartwell has really…

” according to a Purina spokesman, … the area has a good talent pool and existing distribution network. ”
A good talent pool in Hartwell? I guess they can get enough people off of meth to drive the forklifts but who is going to actually make the dog food? And what “talent” is that, anyway?
I predict a lot of names on those I9 forms ending in “ez” and no need to look too closely at those ID’s.

We should all praise the dogged efforts of Hartwell’s economic development team. Also, not everyone at Clemson is on meth.

Can some one explain the logic behind the Jones Act being t lifted for ports effected by Harvey and/or Irma for a few weeks, but they will not lift them for ports in Puerto Rico or the USVI? (Logical answers please, I already know the snarky ones.)

Andrew C. Pope
Andrew C. Pope

1) USVI is already exempt from the Jones Act.

2) The shipping-related challenges in Puerto Rico right now are (1) rebuilding port infrastructure so that ships can actually access the island and (2) having enough port capacity for offloading. CBP said that the reason the Jones Act was lifted for Harvey and Irma was to facilitate the more efficient transport of fuel to areas facing fuel shortages. FEMA is anticipating that most humanitarian aid is going to come via Jones Act barges, anyway.

Because in addition to wasting your money on cushy private jets, Tom Price is also overtly trying to sabotage Obamacare marketplaces:
