Spin Zone / Re: Eric Holder says Barr 'unfit' to serve as attorney general

Does anyone care what Holed says except CNN
The most political and partisan AG in modern history thinks Barr is unfit? 

Day drinking is fun, but not if you need to be in an interview soon.

Rush, get your mind out of the toilet!

(Sorry, couldn't resist. Low and away, you gotta swing!)

Yep, every single morning I have to flush 6 times whereas with the huge amounts of water in the old potties, I only needed to flush ONCE. It is a daily reminder of how much I despise this overreach of federal government into my very bathroom habits. And that doesn't even account for the rest of the day, every time I turn on the faucet and have to walk away and do my taxes before the hot water reaches the sink. I have yanked the flow restrictors out of all our shower heads.

A shower flow restrictor is installed either inside or outside a shower head, and it works to reduce water use. For example, the average person uses about ten gallons (approximately 38 liters) of water for each minute he or she showers. The installation of a shower head flow restrictor can cut this figure in half, allowing users to save on water expenses and water heating costs in addition to promoting green living. For the most part, high quality restrictors do not decrease the overall quality of the shower and are therefore virtually unnoticeable.

This is a LIE. It greatly reduces the quality of the shower.  If you shower for the same length of time, you do not adequately rinse all the soap and shampoo off you, and this promotes unhealthy skin problems. If you double the shower time, you are defeating the purpose of saving water AND you are uselessly wasting minutes of your life. It takes x amount of clear water to rinse y amount of soap off you; mathematical reality. These things give you the illusion of a lot of water by having very high pressure pin pricks of water hitting you, that feel like needles and do nothing to get you clean. Give me a big open pipe with a large diameter flow. It feels soft as silk and I will be washed, rinsed, done and clean in a quarter of the time. Stop lying to me.

People wonder why Trump got elected. THIS is why. Not because I'm racist or hate homosexuals or don't like Hispanics. I voted for Trump because I am sick and tired of Federal Government interference in every aspect of my life, politicians and bureaucrats fucking around with MY day and the quality of MY LIFE. This isn't freedom, I am fucking sick of it. Trump was outside of this monster the Feds and career politicians have become, and was promising to reign it in, and that is why I voted for him.

There are still no facts to support these conspiracy theories, just speculation, supposition, and spin.
Sounds like you are talking about 3 years worth of charges against Trump.

Article I.  Congress makes the laws.  Congress can impeach the president and remove him from office.  The president can't remove anyone from office. 

Also, Article II, the president is required to report to Congress, not the other way around.

Again, you have your nose pressed up against a tree and miss the forest.
That is NOT what you said. You said under the Constitution Congress oversees the executive.

That is false, and if that’s what you learned in law school, you should demand a refund.

This is what Article II Section 3 days about “reporting:”

“He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in case of disagreement between them, with respect to the time of adjournment, he may adjourn them to such time as he shall think proper; he shall receive ambassadors and other public ministers; he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all the officers of the United States.”


And the ability to Impeach is just that. It does NOT give Congress the right to “oversee” the Executive branch. 

Yet you and every leftist lawyer seem to claim that the Legislative branch has oversight and dominion over the presidency. 

Congress can pass no law that gives it power or control over another branch beyond what is allowed by the Constitution.

And true to form, you have to take a jab at me for missing the forest. Why, because if the goal is to remove the president, all means are on the table? 

Typical leftist.

The Trump effect at work.  I landed at Chester County once.  Flew in to see my nephew in prison there.  Got raped up the six by the airport, never had seen a jet in a ditch before.

 So you got raped going to see a nephew in prison that's by the airport, and for some reason a jet went into a ditch because of it?

I don’t understand the link.

That's OK.

Doesn't anyone here believe that both the Bidens and Trump are likely guilty of wrong doing?  I do not doubt that the Bidens were dirty in their dealings especially considering that Hunter had no special skills to earn a job paying $50k/month.  That reeks of being a payoff.  Still, no matter how dirty the Bidens were, it is unconscionable that a US president would ask a foreign leader to investigate a political rival and threaten to withhold congressional approved funds in the process.    Which concerns me the most?  Trumps wrongdoings as he is a sitting president.  However, if there is any chance that this country will elect Biden then his crimes need harder scrutiny as well.  But it needs to be investigated by US officials, not some foreign power who is having his arm twisted by the current president for political reasons.

He's asking to investigate corruption, that Biden happened to be a part of. It is coincidental that he is currently a candidate?  Kind of like saying, we can't charge Biden we can't investigate Biden for murder right now, he's a candidate for President.

You are a bit dense, aren't you.

The vast majority of the Media is no longer the referee.  They are the opposing team.  CNN, NBC, MSNBC (Comcast), CBS, ABC PBS, NYT, Washpo…….and the rest.....all on the Democrat Gilligan's Island.

Drudge use to have a great website.  No more, now it’s just an aggregate site for liberal outlets.

What is false about it?  It looks pretty accurate to me.  Trump supporters seem not to remember that he won by less than 50,000 votes across 3 states.

No, President Trump won by 77 Electoral College votes. 

I hope that people understand how the US Presidental elections are determined.

It is a problem.  A basic business, economics and finance course should be mandatory in High School, and a core requirement in college.  Probably two of them at least.  Government creates NO WEALTH.

Then where does my tax refund come from?

Never saw the point of life insurance and never bought any.  I think I have a policy through my work.  I pop off Mrs. Steingar has plenty of money, and once she get mine she'll be fine.  to me life insurance is just betting you're going to die, which seems like a chump bet to me.  House always wins unless you decide not to play.

Not everyone has the same situation you have.

In fact, I'd wager large sums of OPM that relatively few people have the same sitution.

6 is false.
7 I learned as a kid, as would anyone who has been exposed to carpentry.
19 is not likely, though reminds me of a bunch of Spoonerisms.
The rest are interesting, if dubious, but remind me of politics anyway.  :)

Spin Zone / Re: Manufactured recession
« on: August 21, 2019, 06:52:47 AM »
If there is no impending recession why is Trumplethinkskin acting as if there is one?  He's asked the Fed for a 0.75% rate cut.  Last time they did one that big was I think 2009.  Now he's looking at payroll tax cuts, which will balloon the deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars.  These are moves you make when the economy is in trouble, not when it's as strong as he's been claiming.

Tax RATE cuts don't "balloon deficits".  They typically grow revenue as they spur economic GROWTH.  More people and businesses making more money pay more total revenue. 

Trump is trying to avoid the SELF FULFILLING prophecy the Media and Democrats (same thing) are creating of a recession.  It is called being PROACTIVE.  This is how businessmen think.  You act BEFORE there is a crisis, and avoid one.

Problem is always in figuring out what’s “catastrophic” and what isn’t. Medical costs aren’t meristic or threshold, they’re quantitative. Should your illness fall just short of “catastrophic” you could be royally fucked.

I thought “catastrophic” in the case of insurance was the point at which the covered medical bills reached the agreed upon out-of-pocket limit. That limit could be reached by getting treated for cancer, accident injuries, diseases, and so on. Paying the bills up to that limit isn’t getting fucked.

Example: our ACA mandated insurance premiums the last 5 years averaged $13,524/year and our out-of-pocket expenses were $5176/year (mostly due to periodic doc visits for my rheumatoid arthritis.) We never reached the deductible. When I checked the price of non-ACA compliant catastrophic insurance the rates were in the few hundred a month range - depending on deductible, amount and types of coverage, and so on. I think I estimated for roughly equivalent coverage I could more than cut our premium in half.

The premiums were where we were getting fucked, not medical bills. The ACA is downright evil against that portion of the middle class that are self-employed or having to buy individual insurance.
