She is one of the reasons I love politics as much as I do! Hope your 25th Birthday is AMAZING. Now onto less important things: Republicans need to take a chill pill with the Supreme Court. The Hammonds received a presidential pardon. All’s well that ends well with the Thai Soccer Team and their coach. What is this world coming to? What have you accomplished this summer? Theresa May cannot catch a break. George Clooney was in an accident yesterday in Italy, but he’s fine, y’all. I know. It scared me too. Shouldn’t the Space Force have detected this? Oh, well, I guess I can take that bottle of multivitamins back to GNC… I KNOW this isn’t funny. I barely laughed. Just only kinda laughed a tiny bit.

The Trump baby blimp made me laugh.

Pope I heard Noway is outraged by this injustice!!! https://www.wjbf.com/news/crime-news/georgia-closes-childcare-center-after-molestation-charge/1293028890 July 11, 2018 9:30 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope So it looks like we’re kidnapping American kids now: “1 child cannot be reunified at this time because the parent’s location has been unknown for more than a year. Defendants are unable to conclusively determine whether the parent is a class member, and records show the parent and child might be U.S. citizens.” https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/4593359/7-10-18-US-Notice-of-Compliance-Ms-L.pdf July 11, 2018 9:38 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Moreeeee…Democrat sexual harassment… http://klcc.org/post/gov-kate-brown-calls-democrat-nathan-boddie-withdraw-candidacy July 11, 2018 10:08 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope So I take it this is the one kind of Democrat you’re willing to support? July 11, 2018 10:20 AM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Hey Noway, are you going to mail some water wings to your swamp dwelling buddies so they don’t drown under the liberal deluge of swamp water we will see from Strzok tomorrow! Let’s see if these clowns are still in denial (De Nile -that big river flowing north through Egypt) about this horrible partisan witch hunt! Can you swim Caroline?! July 11, 2018 6:51 PM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope De Nile -that big river flowing north through Egypt Trying to figure out if you explaining the joke is an admission you suck at making jokes or an admission Noway is too dumb to get it. Friendly reminder that you were talking a big game about how Wray and Rosenstein would be the final nail in the coffin for the Mueller investigation. Granted, that was before Jim “I spent years turning a blind eye to rampant sexual assault but I’m sure paying attention to this” Jordan proved just how little he knows about how investigations work. July 11, 2018 7:25 PM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Seriously, if there was gold in Strzok’s story, ish would’ve been leaked by a handful of over eager Republican legislators or staffers. July 11, 2018 7:28 PM Log in to Reply Caroline Exactly. So far they’ve only done a cut and paste. They made Daryl Issa proud. Strzok has even asked for his testimony to be released and it’s crickets from the GOP. July 11, 2018 7:55 PM Andrew C. Pope And to think, Noway was whining and handwringing cause some teenager got a drink thrown on him… https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2018/07/11/woman-arrested-in-assault-of-91-year-old-mexican-man-who-was-told-to-go-back-to-your-country/ July 11, 2018 11:24 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn The Lt Gov and his wife are in Savannah to open his Coastal Georgia Campaign Headquarters today. Note, in same building as Rep Carter’s office. July 11, 2018 11:38 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Rafa’s success is still too one surface dominant for me (12/18 GS wins have been at Roland Garros) while Fed has 6 Aussies and 5 US Opens in addition to his 8 wins on grass. July 11, 2018 1:09 PM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Oh sweet Jesus. Can we get the dang edit button back, please? Y’all cutting costs around here or something? July 11, 2018 1:10 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Federer out. If Rafa wins, GOAT debate wide open… July 11, 2018 12:49 PM Log in to Reply alpha male No doubt. In fact, imo if Rafa does win Wimbledon he will sooner than later, catch Feds in overall slam wins. July 11, 2018 1:00 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 At five years you ger, rafa is sitting pretty July 11, 2018 1:16 PM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Djokovic looks healthy. Murray just announced he’s ready to return. Delpo looks re-energized. Not to mention these young dudes like Zvrev and Shapo. Rafa will still dominate clay, but I’d hesitate to call him the GOAT even if he passes Fed on the back of winning like 18 French Opens. July 11, 2018 1:30 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn It official. The man in charge of the criminal division of the DOJ is a former lawyer for the Russian bank with ties to the Russian government with little or no back ground in criminal prosecution. July 11, 2018 6:56 PM Log in to Reply Caroline I guess there just isn’t anybody these days in the GOP that doesn’t have ties to Putin. Putin is laughing because the communists were so stupid. They spent all that money on military equipment while he was able to buy the GOP for kopeks on the ruble. July 11, 2018 7:07 PM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope It’s not “little to no background” it’s “he’s never prosecuted a case.” I’ve got more experience than the head of the DOJ’s criminal division. Sweet Lord. July 11, 2018 7:20 PM Log in to Reply xdog Another former Sessions aide. His predecessor was Chris Wray so I guess we know his career path. July 11, 2018 7:42 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn And then there is this… Don’t we have crimes these 100 plus prosecutors should be trying? Besides the Russian ones… https://www.axios.com/rosenstein-prosecutors-review-kavanaugh-documents–60cacccd-c1af-4606-8321-ef8c1c49b8a3.html July 11, 2018 6:58 PM Log in to Reply Caroline So Manafort tried to get to stay at Northern Neck detention center and the judge said this: While denying Manafort’s request to stay at Northern Neck, the Judge said: “The professionals at the Alexandria Detention Center are very familiar with housing high-profile defendants including foreign and domestic terrorists, spies and traitors. Yeah, Alexandria is well versed on dealing with traitors. Good luck Paulie Walnuts. July 11, 2018 8:45 PM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
