Currahee! “Somewhere above you among the living weak princes and fat bureaucrats and rank traitors mumble platitudes and empty praises about actions they never knew and men they cannot hope to emulate.”Ouch! The Army of Dennises fails gloriously. Pass the popcorn! Your next business trip should be interesting. The danger of spoons. LA isn’t all trash and cooties.

June 7, 2019 10:19 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn Remember when in December of 2017 when the tax cut was being signed and I said the majority of the money corporations were going to get from the tax cuts and returning capital was just going to go towards M & A, stock buybacks and dividend payouts – not back towards the workers or capital expenditures… Good times. https://www.axios.com/money-companies-investors-assets-buybacks-dividends-f0a4d79b-bfa7-4205-9d27-f09b50266307.html June 7, 2019 10:26 AM Log in to Reply Benevolus That “pass the popcorn” story is funny. “I have all along believed that part of President Trump’s mission in the U.K. was winning over British support for fully outing the role of its intelligence services in the Russia Hoax. … The next P.M. cannot take office without going to her (The Queen) for permission, and in that conversation she is fully capable of laying out her expectations that this affair be made public to the extent that President Trump demands. The serene continuation of the Special Relationship with the U.S. is precisely the sort of institutional matter of utmost importance that a British monarch has a legitimate and important voice on.” Really? June 7, 2019 10:36 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Log Cabin Republican Karen Handel has taken to calling Lucy McBath Lyin’ Lucy. It’s Trumpian, and Trumpian means Republican these days, to accuse others of what they’re guilty of. The sad thing is Log Cabin will support her if she’s the nominee, despite her disavowing she was ever a member. June 7, 2019 11:39 AM Log in to Reply NoParty4Me Isn’t that cute of “Krooked Karen”? June 7, 2019 11:43 AM Log in to Reply Grindelwald I thought we were going with, “Kollege-Degreeless Karen” or “Kancer Screenings Shouldn’t Be Made Available to Women in Need Karen” or “Kids Should Be Separated From Their Families and Placed in Internment Kamps Karen” or “Kouldn’t Hold Down a Real Job Karen” Lots of options, really. June 7, 2019 2:07 PM Log in to Reply alpha male Don’t worry. Running against empty suit McBath will make it easy for you. You will just be calling her Congresswoman Karen. June 7, 2019 4:38 PM Log in to Reply Benevolus I hope she wears an NRA patch on her clothes, like a NASCAR driver. June 7, 2019 12:30 PM Log in to Reply auh2o Trump relentlessly works to stop the invasion and keep another campaign promise. Say what you want. This man loves the USA. https://news.yahoo.com/us-warns-mexico-tariffs-imminent-migration-row-simmers-165915953.html June 8, 2019 10:11 AM Log in to Reply Gregs Add this to the fact that North Korea is no longer a nuclear threat, Russia didn’t interfere with the 2016 elections and Mexico just made the last payment on the wall on the Southern border and you get the complete picture. June 8, 2019 11:26 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn So we got 2014 like ‘Programa Frontera Sur’ protect of Mexico’s southern boarder (which the US asked for and got – for nothing in 2014. and no headline creating press) and an agreement to hold asylum seekers on the Mexico side of the US boarder until there hearings or sending them back to their county of origin that the US federal judicial system has already rule against at least once. Basically, ‘Creating a pearl clutching tariff threat for no reason so Trump can take create for solving Trump’s own tariff threat’ agreement.

Right away, I had a different problem.” June 10, 2019 7:38 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn Interesting Read https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/06/chernobyl-hbo-miniseries-lying-radioactive/ June 8, 2019 11:35 AM Log in to Reply auh2o After Trump’s thunderous beatdown of Hillary in 2016 in Florida, what makes the opposition say this? Hope, I guess. https://www.nbcwashington.com/news/national-international/Official-Tells-Florida-Democrats-to-Expect-Recount-in-2020-511023232.html June 9, 2019 9:10 AM Log in to Reply Grindelwald The last three gubernatorial elections have been within 1 percentage point. The 2018 Senate race was decided by 10,033 votes. The 2018 Ag Commissioner race was decided by 6,000 votes. It’s a purple state chock full of Boomers that don’t know how to fill out election ballots. Guarantee you that Republican officials are also expecting (and preparing for) a recount. June 10, 2019 7:55 AM Log in to Reply tbogcw No us senate (Rubio 22) or governor (desantis 22) race in FL in 2020. Just presidential. Highly likely Trump wins without recount. June 10, 2019 8:42 AM Log in to Reply Grindelwald I think it’s too far out to say anyone is “highly likely” to win Florida. More importantly, Democrats and Republicans are prepping for recounts in Florida and every other state that could potentially be close in 2020. They hire lawyers every cycle for this express purpose.
