  1. I don't think you'll get beat up for that. It isn't unreasonable and perhaps the 47 republicans who are allowed to be in the interviews might actually attend instead of acting like spoiled brats and storming the house and putting on a show, when they were already supposed to attend. This is like a high school drama. B/A
  2. Thanks, I didn't think you were much of a ruby type guy.. 😎 B/A
  3. Whatever... You post crazy stupid humor about the left all the time... I never neg that... I can laugh at jokes, too bad some people are so wound up they simply can't let go for a minute... No wonder that type of person is never really happy. They are always stuck looking for negatives and cannot enjoy basic human nature and laughing because it's funny regardless of politics... That is really an unfortunate way to go through life. B/A
  4. True Dat... Last week it was all about how Congress needed a vote to move forward and now they announce a vote and guess what??? The crybaby snowflakes come out whining about how it is unfair... The right has got it all wrong n this issue. They introduced the process, they voted on the process, a republican president signed off on the process, and now they don't like it... That's lesson the left should learn. When you create dumbass policies, eventually they will come back to haunt you, just like we are seeing today with the republican's dumbass policy they put into place... Do we really elect these inept people year after year? B/A
  5. You guys really should try to enjoy life... It's okay to laugh at humor.. If this was exactly the same video but said Obama you would love it. I don't understand that mentality. B/A
  6. WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sought Monday to deprive President Trump of a legal and political argument against the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, announcing she would hold a vote in the full House this Thursday that “affirms the ongoing, existing investigation.” “We are taking this step to eliminate any doubt as to whether the Trump Administration may withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard duly authorized subpoenas, or continue obstructing the House of Representatives,” Pelosi said in a written statement. “Nobody is above the law.” Pelosi said the Trump White House has made a “baseless claim that the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry ‘lacks the necessary authorization for a valid impeachment proceeding.’” That was a quote from a letter that Trump’s White House counsel, Pat Cipollone, sent to Congress on Oct. 8 rejecting cooperation with the impeachment inquiry. “They argue that, because the House has not taken a vote, they may simply pretend the impeachment inquiry does not exist,” Pelosi said. “Of course, this argument has no merit.” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during Pelosi's weekly news conference at the Capitol on Oct. 2. (Photo: Jonathan Ernst/Reuters) Much of the reason that the House held votes in 1974 and 1998 to begin impeachment proceedings against President Richard Nixon and President Bill Clinton was because such a vote was needed to do the investigative work of issuing subpoenas and holding depositions. Over the last decade or two, the rules of Congress have changed so that a full House vote is no longer necessary. Nonetheless, Pelosi’s announcement is both a strategic tactic and perhaps also a concession that Democrats were seeing the legitimacy of their inquiry weakened somewhat by Republican arguments that they should keep with precedent and hold a vote in the House to get every member of the chamber on record, even though another vote to approve articles of impeachment is likely to come to the House floor in the next several weeks. Pelosi’s office said it will announce more details on Tuesday about the next phase of the impeachment inquiry, including when public House committee hearings will be held and the process for the release of deposition transcripts https://www.yahoo.com/news/pelosi-trump-impeachment-vote-201816643.html Ask and you shall receive???

  7. This is funny... I don't care who you are. B/A
  8. Thanks MD.... It has been both a test of patience and very rewarding... I'm not sure I would recommend it!!! LOL B/A
  9. I missed that one... But I do agree with you on the first part. As for the worlds, not so much. B/A
  10. Thank you for your kind words and yes, taking in a teen at 14 who grew up with zero fundamental values has been tough. We've had her for over four years and it hasn't always been easy. I think we have had many really good days, and I like to think that some of what we had shown her will get through. We had two main goals. The first, is based on the fact that no one in her family ever, graduated high school. She will be the first come this spring. The second even more important, is pregnancy. Her mom and sisters have all had kids by the time they reached 16. She has not. That goal was the most important one to us. To end the cycle... And no, my wife doesn't post on DV. I don't know why some people here thought I was a female, maybe it is because I tend to show compassion. B/A
  11. Yes that is my confused face... Everything you post and I do mean everything is a lovefest for Trump. You accuse me of being a liberal, but I do post things that are negative about the left. Have you ever posted anything negative about Trump? If so, I must have missed it. B/A
  12. Yes Trump is a cult of personality, and you are one of his followers. Caddieman posted pure facts about his people and you outright denied it. Trying to change history and deny facts is what cult members do. B/A
  13. Deep Purple was great... I saw them live in 1978 or 79... B/A
  14. Great facts you brought... His hires have been a complete failure. Did you see what John Kelly said this weekend? B/A
  15. Like many people who have rescue animals, I have a rescue teen. My wife was her big sister in a program for underprivileged kids and one day the kid's mom left her at a crack house with a bunch of guys... She was 14. So we got custody of her and have been trying to right her ship and keep her out of that toxic environment. So far so good. B/A
  16. WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal deficit for the 2019 budget year surged to $984.4 billion, its highest point in seven years, and is widely expected to top the $1 trillion mark in coming years. The 26% surge from the 2018 deficit of $779 billion that the government reported Friday reflected such factors as revenue lost from the 2017 Trump tax cut and a budget deal that added billions in spending for military and domestic programs. Forecasts by the Trump administration and the Congressional Budget Office project that the deficit will top $1 trillion in the current budget year. And the CBO estimates that the deficit will stay above $1 trillion over the next decade. Those projections stand in contrast to President Donald Trump's campaign promises that even with revenue lost initially from his tax cuts, he would be able to eliminate the federal budget deficit with cuts in spending and increased growth generated by the tax cuts. The budget showed that revenue rose 4% in the 2019 budget year, which ended Sept. 30, but that spending surged at twice that rate. Spending increased for defense programs and for the government's big benefit programs for the elderly, Social Security and Medicare. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin asserted that Trump's economic program was nevertheless working, with unemployment at its lowest point in nearly 50 years. Mnuchin argued that to put the budget on a sustainable path, Congress must enact proposals "to cut wasteful and irresponsible spending." So far, though, neither party has shown much interest in reducing the soaring deficits. Trump and Republicans seem content with the $1.5 trillion tax cut measure that Congress passed during Trump's first year in office. And Democrats who are running to oppose him in next year's election have proposed their own expensive spending plans, including Medicare for All. While pledging to protect Social Security and other benefit programs, many of the Democratic presidential candidates have said they will roll back Trump's tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations to pay for their programs. Against that backdrop, budget deficits are on track to keep rising — thereby raising the national debt, as a percentage of the economy, to its highest point since the end of World War II. The government did previously run $1 trillion annual deficits from 2009 through 2012, when the Obama administration was spending heavily to combat the effects of the 2008 financial crisis and the worst recession since the 1930s. This time, the deficits are occurring at a dramatically different time: The unemployment rate is historically low, and the economy is in a record 11th year of expansion. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/us-budget-deficit-hits-984-180152481.html Now that's HUGE B/A
  17. "We're doing very well in Syria"... Not according to his interim Secretary of Defense. "The American public is outraged" He is correct over 50% want him gone. "This was a perfect conversation" Yup perfectly illegal. "This was a hoax just like there was no collusion, they wasted 45 million dollars" No the 45 million was paid for by your campaign chairman's fines after he was found guilty. "Adam Schiff made up the conversation" Not according to your diplomats. Just release the transcripts that are hidden on the secret server and prove it was nothing. "Rudy is a great crime fighter and a good man" Ahhh he is being investigated for illegally making policy and his client's are in jail. "Hunter has no experience in oil and other nations are coming out. I won't embarrass the nation." You have no experience in government and using anonymous tips doesn't go over well with your base. "We're doing very well with China, a lot of things are happening right now" There is no agreement signed with China and they aren't hurrying to make a deal. He's a never Trumper and they are a dying breed. See number 2 "We have a great republican plan and will take over the house by big numbers" He lost congress and may lose the senate. Republicans are retiring in record numbers before they are ousted. "We'll great healthcare. Deductibles will be lower." Is Mexico going to pay for it? "Farmers are doing very well" Farmers are suffering and his bailouts don't cover their electric bills. "I read the papers. I read them in greater detail than you" The White House has recently began cancelling their newspaper subscriptions. "Investigate the investigators. You'll see thing you aren't going to believe. The worst hoax in the history of our country" Dodge and distract. We've already seen things we can't believe. I thought it was a hoax when he was appointed by the minority. " More people working today in The United States than ever before" There are more Americans living than ever before. The economy and jobs creation started in 2009. Did he just wake up a year ago? "I don't have teams. I'm the team, I did nothing wrong" So when things go wrong don't blame him blame the team. That's he does than fires them. Or they quit to keep their dignity. "I beat the Obama people. I beat the Bush people. I beat the Clinton people. With no experience. That's a lot of people" And now it looks like you are beating yourself... B/A
  18. The people around Trump keep finding their way to jail... Maybe you and your cronies should be working on a prison break strategy. It's looking like he might need a plan. B/A
  19. Thanks for your usual calm and sensible post. Although there are a very few people who might go out and want to start a civil war, the reality is, our military would put them down in a minute and the rest of our public would be happy they did. The idea presented by so called preacher is nothing less than deplorable.... B/A
