This is a first battle - the war over this court case is far from over.  However, it is encouraging to see.

I see this as a states rights issue anyway, Congress does not have the authority to make laws about everything.  Push it to the states and let the states decide what their citizens prefer.  If it's really good, then all the states will implement something like it.  If its not good, then we know that Democrats have been tyrannical in pushing this legislation in the first place because they're forcing some places to do things they don't want or value. 

State based laws is really the the way the US should work.

I don't doubt for a minute that obama would use the government to blackmail John Roberts into violating his oath by legislating from the bench.

And I don't doubt for a second that the same criminals at the fbi and doj blocked any attempts to investigate it.

Why are schools not preparing our children for real life anymore?  What motivates school districts, administrators, and teachers to want to hamper children without the necessary skills, and attitudes for success?
Parents. (or lack of parenting).
A school trying to motivate some students is like pushing water up a hill unless the parents push too.

Spin Zone / Re: Cohen and Attorney-Client Privilege
« on: December 14, 2018, 02:25:34 PM »
I think Cohen's disbarment is a foregone conclusion.  If the felony conviction isn't enough, New York is probably going to disbar him because he worked for Trump.

 Not necessarily.

 Bar associations for each state are just that, lawyer associations.  They are not a part of government.  They govern themselves and their members.

 There are many attorneys that have committed crimes and other misdeeds that still have a law license.  If you think the local ambulance chasing shyster lawyer is a lowlife, go take a look at his Bar Association that admitted him.

Only like minded democrats (communists) could possibly think that a gun ban would not be used as a way for traitorous governments (like democrats) to slaughter their political foes. It has always come to this, and always will. Give any government enough time and freedom to take your right to defend yourself away, and slaughter always follows.

Why is it that democrats (communists) ALWAYS and ONLY support things that are bad for the country?

The US has honest to goodness gosh grievances against the Chinese that were not addressed by the Short Fingered Vulgarian's Processor.  I do think the Mango Mussolini is going about it all wrong, though. I think the thing to do with the Chinese was to use back channels and fairly private communications to get the point across.  His brazen diplomacy by Twitter has caused Xi Jinping to loose face, and the Chinese are all about face.  He can't negotiate, he'll loose that much more face.  He has little choice but to retaliate, or he'll appear weak. But in retaliating he appears strong, and it gets good internal consumption, making him that much more popular.

Xi Jinping is ruler for life, which means the only way he's going to stop being ruler is if he dies.  If he appears weak those who would like to supplant him are going to try and arrange just that, and he knows it.  One needs to look no farther than Libya to see the fate of dictators who loose control of their fates, and no farther than Syria to see the lengths dictators will go to to keep from losing control.  I think these sorts of autocrats needs to handled carefully, something for which a Secretary of State and fully functioning Department of State can be a big help.  A pity Trump savaged the latter.
I’ve always wondered why America is supposed to give two shits whether or not a communist “leader” loses face, when you and your fellow socialists live for the day when you can get Trump and other Republicans to lose face. You could see the attempted set up with Chuck and Nancy in the Oval Office. They failed miserably, because they didn’t expect Trump to take responsibility for a partial government shutdown. But it is game on, 24/7, with the democrats.

Fuck the shit horn dictators. Lose face, kill yourself, I couldn’t give two shits.

I’m SO tired of the US being told we must conform to some foreign cultural standards, when the same is not offered to us.

I’m glad Trump doesn’t give a shit either. He knows EXACTLY how to negotiate.

Bill Clinton has been a private citizen for 17 years, and his wife couldn't get elected dog catcher now.  But you guys just can't give it up.  I guess you need your boogeymen to distract you from the utter incompetence of your precious leader.

?  How is Trump incompetent? I and most the rest of middle class are going to save a couple thousand this year in taxes thanks to him. The unemployment rate is at record lows thanks to him. We have a chance to finally corral NK thanks to him, we are finally not letting China get away with unfair trade that was hurting our economy, we have opened up the energy industry and made the U.S. an energy exporter again, investors are bring money back home from overseas, wages are finally rising again, black new business ownership is up 400% just this year, welfare rolls are at historic lows, ISIS is gone, he's rolling out plans to cut foreign aid, he's cutting regulations left and right, I could go on and on.

Even if you disagree whether it's good to do all the above you can't say he's incompetent.

They hate any state that isn't controlled by one or more Metro Areas (city and burbs) which are now overwelmingly Democrat.  So, the coasts, and states like IL, MN, etc, they like.  Others, not at all. 

I have said this before.  Our divide is largely Metro/Non-Metro in this country.  We are losing the battle as more people are urbanizing, and either are Democrat, or become Democrat.  These metro areas control every state in which they have the population to do so, and more often than not, they do.

The urban/Dem areas are the new aristocracy, totally disconnected from the workers and farmers that feed their asses, and deliver energy and goods across the country to their asses, and they are completely contemptuous and snobby in their disdain for the "inferior" lowly classes: rural, hillbilly, redneck, mouth breathing, knuckle dragging, gun loving, religion clinging low brow uneducated unsophisticated lesser forms of human.

More and more insulated and the young ones coming up now, attending urban universities are totally and completely devoid of any understanding of the entire 50% of the country that does not follow lockstep to the unified leftist monochrome that is now academia.

Trump himself said he would happily own the shutdown in the name of national security. Of course he’s happy to give the Russians and Saudi’s a pass, but some poor schlubs trying to sneak in across our Southen border are a big threat.
Grow up. Trump is playing varsity ball in global international affairs, and you’re playing Stratego in your basement.

That was just painful to watch. It may have put me off politics forever. A couple of grade schoolers could probably make better decisions than those two self-serving party hacks. America should be ashamed.

I suspect you would quickly realize the difference had you a sauce freshly made from fresh tomatoes.

I suspect you might be surprised to learn otherwise. Many of the best pizza places in the country, and I believe in the world, are using canned tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes have, obviously, a lovely flavor if they are good and in season. But they are perhaps not what the pallet expects on a pizza. Another challenge - fresh tomatoes out of season can be truly underwhelming, whereas good canned tomatoes are canned during season.

On Jeff Varasano's page, he says this -

Using Fresh Tomato

An alternative to canned tomatoes is fresh tomatoes. Even the best cans have a tinny odor, so you'd think that nothing could top fresh tomatoes. But using 100% fresh tomatoes is not necessarily the best thing. If you prepare fresh tomatoes and taste it raw, compared to canned, the fresh will win. But somehow, on the pizza, the canned will win. Partly it's that the fresh tomato taste is simply different than we are all used to and so it never tastes like your favorite pizza place.  I've probably not experimented enough to say for sure.

He does go on to suggest a procedure for using fresh tomatoes, and suggest Ugly Ripes as a commercial possibility for fresh tomatoes.

I have a local farmer where I buy as much of my produce as I can.  He has chickens, so I get brown eggs.  But he also usually has a selection of vegetables, and fruit in the summer and fall.  I get my tomatoes there as they actually have taste.  The best tomatoes I get, come from my neighbor who grows them.  They taste like real tomatoes.  Totally different from the grocery store.  I have no idea what they sell.
I built my wife 400sf of vegetable garden beds.  About half of that is tomatoes of different varieties, including heirloom tomatoes.  She cans, and last year canned 144 large jars of tomatoes. So if the zombie apocalypse comes, you’re all invited over for spaghetti.

Bullshit. I was outraged the day I read about it.  The President of the United States ignored US law and authorized murder against American citizens because it was easy.  That act reduced my respect for him more than any other thing he ever did.  Benghazi might have been a mistake, it might have even been incompetence.  But it wasn't premeditated.
A Stand Down order was issued by somebody, at a time when our men could have been rescued or the enemy defeated. That is not a mistake or incompetence.  It was a purposeful sacrifice of Americans for political purposes. Someone had to make that POLITICAL decision.

Just put this on POA we'll see if anyone bitches....
Not to offend anybody, but....🙄

It Snowed Last Night..

8:00 am: I made a snowman.

8:10 - A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn't make a snow woman.

8:15 - So, I made a snow woman.

8:17 - My feminist neighbor complained about the snow woman's voluptuous chest saying it objectified snow women everywhere.

8:20 - The gay couple living nearby threw a hissy fit and moaned it could have been two snow men instead.

8:22 - The transgender man..women...person asked why I didn't just make one snow person with detachable parts.

8:25 - The vegans at the end of the lane complained about the carrot nose, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with.

8:28 - I was being called a racist because the snow couple is white.

8:31 - The middle eastern gent across the road demanded the snow woman be covered up .

8:40 - The Police arrived saying someone had been offended.

8:42 - The feminist neighbor complained again that the broomstick of the snow woman needed to be removed because it depicted women in a domestic role.

8:43 - The council equality officer arrived and threatened me with eviction.

8:45 - TV news crew from ABC showed up. I was asked if I know the difference between snowmen and snow-women? I replied "Snowballs" and am now called a sexist.

9:00 - I was on the News as a suspected terrorist, racist, homophobe sensibility offender, bent on stirring up trouble during difficult weather.

9:10 - I was asked if I have any accomplices. My children were taken by social services.

9:29 - Far left protesters offended by everything marched down the street demanding for me to be arrested.

Moral:

There is no moral to this story. It is what we have become all because of snowflakes

Here's how it works in a nutshell:

Find a problem, hopefully one that is inconclusive.  Begin promoting what the "dangers" of this new problem are, get some bogus "experts" to attest to the coming doom and gloom.  Have your MSM buy in hook, line and sinker.

Propose new taxes to "combat the problem".  Use this revenue to fund pet projects and "spread the wealth around" by giving massive grants and loans to a new industry "working for a solution". Of course, these new industries make sure those campaign contributions pour in back to their new found friends.

 How many times have we seen this?
