January 6, 2019 9:35 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse “You’ve had very foul language used,” said House GOP chair Liz Cheney, Yet it was crickets when dad former VP Dick Cheney, in 2004 told Senator Patrick Leahy to “f—k yourself” while the two were on the Senate floor for a group photo. The only reason for publicity is that Dems are now beginning to play by GOP rules. The Federalist website has a nice little video of the dirtbag President saying the word dozens of times, including at least a half dozen as candidate for President or President.

HS diploma unemployment close to twice college grad employment, No HS diploma unemployment close to three times college grade employment. The best thing about the graph is the large increase in absolute numbers of less educated people working. The worst thing about the graph is the large numbers of less educated people that will be out of employment when relative unemployment differences hold during the next recession.

Comrade NoWay! January 6, 2019 9:37 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 So Breitbart makes the content less true? Keep on whining, Ricky! LMAO!!!! January 6, 2019 12:43 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Comrade…in what way? Did you check the Communist Party USA yet Comrade?! Here it is again. See if you find anything you disagree with. You wont. It is identical to the DNC. I find that stunning myself. CPUSA.org. January 6, 2019 6:14 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Electing a president for 240 years…and NOW we have to change it? Because liberals lost a couple of close ones? Is that like banning free speech on college campuses if you dont like it? What state wants liberals in California and New York to elect our president? I suppose most of the country and 48 states would say you are out of your freaking mind! But this is what the modern liberal movement is trying to do. Who in their right mind is for this? Didn’t liberals win close elections before? Didn’t Truman beat Dewey in a squeaker? Didn’t Kennedy win a close election over Nixon with a bit on controversy from the Chicago and Texas machines? And after this past election we have to listen to why the Russians stole the election– which is absurd. Yet folks believe it. Enjoy this upcoming election. Elizabeth Warren said yesterday she is not a person of color! Wow, I thought Harvard proudly promoted her as a minority professor for decades! Hmmm. At least we have our first bisexual Senator. That seems important for sure… Maybe folks will look at competency one of these days. January 6, 2019 9:49 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse What Trumpers believe is that Obama is a Kenyan Muslim, pizzagate is real, Trump has a really big brain, and whatever the lie of the week is.. Competency? Come on. The GaGOP just nominated and elected Steve Kemp, a three time incompetent that threw in willful lying the third time around. January 6, 2019 3:31 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle No Dave. Obama’s dad and family were Kenyan Muslims. His mom was not. I guess every dummy is a billionaire and able to get elected to the presidency in their first try…This despite all the liberals against him, 95% of all of the press, a lot of the republican swamp against him, the intelligence services colluding against him….and he still won!! Why? How? Americans wanted him. They were tired of the lies and dysfunction. And the same clowns are still at it! You have to admit that this is a story line that no one would believe. Not even a liberal. Trump’s pigeon size brain seems to be wining quite a lot and has you guys acting as if you lost your mind. And another Supreme Court pick likely soon. 3…man. A great economy. China is going to improve their dishonest trading policies that no one on earth was brave enough to confront. You know they were cheating. Are you doing to thank Trump? He is actually addressing the immigration disaster instead of punting it down the road like every weak kneed president has for the last 35 years! And Americans know this. Our allies are actually paying a little for more of their own military for a change, millions more jobs coming back to this country…..none of this would be happening if we were following the socialist agenda would it? If you truly the support the radical leftist agenda, you might have a case there for losing your mind! January 6, 2019 6:25 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Over the radical leftist. Thank goodness. Pure competency at work! January 6, 2019 6:54 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Yea Andrew, that is why she lost little buddy! Keep deluding yourself. Sure 48 states are stupid enough to let California and New York radical leftist socialists rule the country! You are out of your hate filled mind! Change the Constitution if you can. If not quit whining. Its the Russians fault right? Spare us please! A white supremacist?! You are a sicko my friend! The same guy that Jesse Jackson gave a lifetime achievement award when he was groveling for money. In New York City yet…a liberal bastion and he is one of the leaders there. And democrat for what 40 years or more?! When did become a boogie man? As soon as he runs for office right? What liberal hogwash. Why would anyone believe such bilge? Why don’t you name any policy that is racist! You cant do it! So you should shut the heck up since you cant back it up.. He sure is happy that EVERYONE including all minorities are enjoying record unemployment. The hatred you have inside you is simply stunning. Hey tell us about the Neo Nazi’s the conservatives support. That would be news to me! Oh by the way, Robert Byrd was a Klansman. And a democrat. Which party is the party of the Klan? Oops! Which is the party against women voting? Oops again. Which party was the home of all of the Klansmen and racists in the south? Oops. Which party called the dogs on the kids in Alabama? The firehoses? Oops. What party was against the Civil Rights act? What party depends on race baiting to get out the vote and screams RACIST RACIST every election!!! Oops again. Check your last email. More racist lies and Nazi bullsh–! From YOU! Oops. It aint from me and Noway is it? Hardly. January 6, 2019 6:01 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Weak. Very weak! Can you read? I want you to tell us what racist polices Trump has. I want you to tell us what Neo Nazi group Trump or any conservatives are supporting! That sure would be news to me. Matter of fact when you see some idiot Klansmen anywhere, maybe 20 folks show up, 200 liberal cameramen from CNN and no one on the damn planet supports them…Thanks the Lord. Those idiots were founded by the Democratic party and their time has long passed. Tell us when Trump became a racist okay? He was a democrat for 40-50 years…most of his life. Or did he become a “racist” because he ran against a liberal in an election? That seems to be all it takes these days. Does anyone get tired of this nonstop name calling? Is it divisive. Is it helpful? It is uniting the country? Is it true? January 6, 2019 10:35 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Yes, Shrivler, they did. But how did that work out for the Libs in 2000 and 2016? And please, be honest in your hate. It might prove therapeutic… January 6, 2019 6:12 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Andrew, do you know what the electoral college is? I hope to hell the liberals lose another close one. Maybe you guys can come a little closer next time. If you can just get a few more million illegals in the country and have no voter ID… you might just pull it off!! If I can figure that out don’t you think the rest of the country can see what the democrats are doing? Aaaawwweee NNNNaaawww. I don’t think this Pelosi- Chucky baloney will be a winning issue. Why doesn’t Fox and Trump just run the tapes with those 2, Obama and the Clintons talking tougher than Trump on immigration over and over?! Were they lying now or then? January 6, 2019 6:30 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Andrew, here is another liberal race ranger! This Cortez babe right on cue with Anderson Cooper calling Trump a racist!! She sounds just like you Andrew. And no evidence of it at all. But it must make you guys feel better. This gal’s main idea so far is to raise tax rates to 70% and higher and call Trump a racist!! Tell me how that platform will lead to economic growth…or economic ruin!!?? Does she sound like a complete dimwit to anyone? I am just wondering. Is this an inspiring person to you? Dogwhistles… Some folks need help… January 6, 2019 8:04 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Well those economists are stupid SOBs! Duh, why work? I guess we can all be liberals and live off the state. Okay genius, tell us commoners how a 70% tax rates will create wealth, jobs and do anything positive! Give it about 2 or 3 years. What happens? Go for it little buddy! Maybe this is why 48 states don’t want anything to do with this socialist BS self destruction! January 6, 2019 9:52 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle What states other than California do you think would vote for relinquishing their power in the electoral college? Those states are so large ad so far left and that they benefit from it, so they might like the idea. Tell me what other states would do that? What the hell is in it for them? Is that questions that difficult? I think I is an idiotic idea. And the founders realized that and set it up that way to protect the other states. I want you to explain why it is a great idea and why any state would do that. January 7, 2019 8:38 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 What’s that old saying? “If at first you don’t succeed….” https://www.yahoo.com/news/nevada-inmate-whose-execution-called-off-found-dead-081744319.html January 6, 2019 6:37 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Pelosi was right to wave off Kristjen Nielsen’s briefing on border statistics. Nielsen has the credibility of someone not sure if Norway is mostly white. And Pence as chief negotiator? Any deal Pence offers that is less than the $5.7B Trump said he’ll take is absolutely worthless. The $5.7B is the third number Trump said he’ll take, but at least Hannity and Coulter haven’t expressed disapproval. Give sixth grader Trump a billion wall in exchange for amnesty for DACA people. The Pentagon wastes that much every week. Adults can then hash out real and cost effective border security improvements to add to that to bump up the amount. The wall photo op will satisfy Trump, and Trump’s word it’s a terrific deal will satisfy an ignorant base. And how about the paid vacation Trump is giving mostly Dem federal workers? Is that a good deal for their support of wall funding or what? The delay in pay is a big downside for many, and of course the there’s the uncertainty that Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter will approve.

LMAO! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6558285/Little-Ice-Age-hundreds-years-ago-cooling-bottom-Pacific-researchers-find.html January 6, 2019 4:55 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Darn that sounds like my email from a couple of days ago. Hope the libs read this closely. Does anyone know how to get this to Al Gore? January 6, 2019 6:09 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Yep! I think DTM is the new Nostradamus!!! January 6, 2019 6:40 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Noway, do you think the blog will read the part about the famines suffered during the Little Ice Age? Hmmm. So I guess the warming has led to abundant crops, wealth and a global population boom that has helped us to where mankind is today… Darn that is what I have been trying to tell them!! Great article. Now lets clean our environment up more each year, enjoy our lives, have economic growth and not global depressions from buffoons running the price of oil to $8 a gallon or worse….to grab your money, gain power and control….and to save the planet. Be sure and vote for the liberal. That is what you will get. Like I have said before, the next Ice Age is the crippler. Not a little warming. But why put reality into a great global warming panic. Would anyone like to see the Panic Stricken Headlines of the Next coming “Ice age” Yes Ice Age from the same green party anti- capitalist alarmists? Here you go if you have a short memory! Were the panic peddlers right then or now? Who knows?! And neither do they! Isn’t that the point? https://longreads.com/2017/04/13/in-1975-newsweek-predicted-a-new-ice-age-were-still-living-with-the-consequences/ January 6, 2019 6:49 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Nahhhhh, they won’t read it. They’re all consumed with Their Socialist Agenda. One Note Ponies all of them. Sad… January 6, 2019 7:10 PM Log in to Reply Will Durant Does anyone have anything to clean the crap off of the chessboard here? January 6, 2019 11:27 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Yea, the Nazi, racist nonstop nonsense is tiresome. I would rather find out how a 70% tax rate will help America, how $8 a gallon gas will help save us from the evils of climate change and what are all of these racist policies there are in America today that some keep referring to.
