    lawyering up on anything is the surest way to put it all away in deepfreeze rhetorical meaninglessness. Anyone who thinks our courts are efficient determiners of truth..... just doesn't know our courts.

    Bannon may have gone a bit far, overplayed his hand. He may be worried about all the powers-behind-the-throne who are not on his political fav list, may have tried to discred some of them. I don't think he is capable of sustained political influence. He's got too much his own idea of things. politicians have to care about what others want.

    It is literally irrelevant whatever Don Jr. said or tried to do. the meeting was a trap to begin with, and Jr. a fool. But he was surely a lightweight compared to standard international dealmakers of the CFR globalist crowd, and whatever he could have said, or wanted.... far less serious as "treason" than Obama or Hillary's standard daily grind.

    I haven't been back to Breitbart for some weeks. I don't even care. Breitbart's only chance to be credible news is to tell the story our lying media won't tell.

    Lots of "moral compasses" are in freespin mode I suppose. The easiest thing is the call everybody else liars or whatever. But since the 1960s I've known our media is dishonest, really really dishonest.... and our national community a sort of fraud pretending to be the ensign of liberty while we're the world's best UN backer.

    you smoked too much peyote out on the Hopi mountain, bro. read too much psychological mumbo jumbo from the college books.

    seriously, you don't notice people around you talking about "deniers" and whatnot, and you just went on a binge actually lumping flatearthers and all kinds of ignoramuses to the general class of folks who just don't believe the obvious truth you know.

    pretty loose talk.

    you're not really a "spiritualist", you're whatever you imagine in your own mind perhaps..... but there's no "spirits" and nothing "spiritualist" in reality as what you've been pleased to imagine.

    I think the reason we have elections is to allow the people, generally, to have some kind of a check on our government. If enough people get concerned about something, and vote for some change.... the election should settle it until the next election.

    Some people can't stand Trump won, and they're just being spoilers.... brats.... trying to interfere with what the people voted for. I don't respect them.

    Funny coming from a person when asked how the voter fraud in Alabama could have possibly happened you just say "It happens all the time, everyone knows it. Soros always loads up busses full of black people and delivers them to voting booths, it's his thing, old news." And you've worked in several departments in several universities studying a varied assortment of things from political science to climate to physics and even marijuana. You've hob-knobbed with English royalty, had an in with LDS church leadership, associated with our local political elites. All while single-handedly working your own farm, keeping up on all the latest conspiracy theories, writing the longest thread in the world, and mastering philosophy. You've been everywhere, seen everything, done all there is to do. You must be about 200 years old and able to be in multiple places at once. I mean, I'm not accusing you of telling tall tales over and over, but, well, okay maybe I am.

    Investigations take time. Mueller is a bad *** and has assembled an all-star team to look into this. Honestly, if at the end of it Mueller says "It doesn't seem like Trump colluded with Russia and I have no proof that he did." I will accept that and move past that issue. If he says "Trump may have colluded with Russia but I have no definitive evidence that he did." I will move past the issue, understanding that it will never be proven that Trump colluded with Russia. But if he says "Trump and his campaign engaged in a concerted effort with Russian intelligence assistance to undermine the U.S. presidential election process, and here's the evidence..." I will expect an impeachment, or I will expect unrest in the streets, and I will participate in the unrest.

    Well, about the closest I've ever been to being drunk is stepping over a man passed out on the living room floor, in a puddle of ethanol/urine. Intoxicating fumes. Well, scratch that. In some tropical isles the natives can make effective liquor outta things you wouldn't imagine..... tuba from some marsh reeds, etc. etc. I made one batch of bakers' yeast/sugar brew and distilled it. What's that stuff you have to get out of it before it can be used??? filtered, I figure. And that 195 proof ethanol with what is that phenolphthalein in it to make your pee run red???

    I'm sure as hell I know nothing about brewing good beer.

    never hob knobbed with anyone. I'm the fly on the wall most places I learn things. I was raised on family legends, and had an aunt who put them in print, in between rescuing stray cats and trying to single-handedly finance an animal rescue house next to the vet.

    creative writing is a high art form.

    I get smarter when I listen to other people. That's all it takes.

    True, but congress has done a lot to negate those taxes for the middle and lower classes. There are also easy ways to play the inflation game and come out a winner. The upper classes pay a whole lot more because they have the means to gain from the system much more. I.E. I don't pay a dime in capital gains taxes or on US corporation dividends. It's pretty cool.

    His fiscal responsibility take is fine but it's obvious to anyone with half a brain cell. His hard line stance on debt issues and may others are outright stupidity, and very irresponsible to teach people en masse using his own reputation as an appeal to authority. Fiscal responsibility is not a blanket approach designed as one size fits every single person. Any counsel should be on a case-by-case basis, if you are responsibly giving advice.

    yah. Most people don't see that. I mean if you're doing regular average jobs and trying to get ahead, I can see not eating out, or vacations until you've got some breathing room. Most wives don't get that though.

    obviously, some loans are actually the wise course. If you need a car to get the job, take the loan whatever the terms.... In some markets, homes are also essential loans.... well, look at least in growth areas they are.

    “Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

    But you can keep people from s**thole countries:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/blog...t-a-white-supremacist/?utm_term=.e915ab6ab1f9

    "In September, ESPN anchor Jemele Hill tweeted that President Trump is a “white supremacist.” An avalanche of criticism followed: The White House demanded her firing; conservatives and even some liberals condemned her as hyperbolic. ESPN issued a statement that her tweets “crossed the line” and Hill was forced to apologize.

    On Thursday, Trump proved once and for all that Hill wasn’t crossing a line, but merely stating a fact: The president is, by definition a white supremacist.

    According to The Post, while meeting with lawmakers to discuss an immigration deal, Trump asked, “Why are we having all these people from s**thole countries come here?”

    He did so in reference specifically to Haiti and African countries, and went on to suggest that the United States should let in more people from Norway, whose prime minister visited the White House Wednesday."

    No, I'm being honest with you babe. But I was a punk at one time. Only Irish family in an all Italian neighborhood. Guy downstairs from us was a made man in the Patriarca crime family. My friends and I ran errands for those guys. If my family had not moved when they did, to the suburbs from Providence, no telling where I might have ended up. That move, and my education, helped put me on a better path. But I learned what I really believe, and what I told you, what I know to be true, from a near death experience as a result of my first heart attack. We are all spiritual beings on a human journey. That's the truth, and no matter how far short I fall myself, it remains the truth. I will try harder not to engage you though; it's not doing either of us any good.

    I've been to Norway, relatively recently, no Norwegian is cashing their chips in Oslo and coming to a country that is the dumpster fire that the US is.

    When I heard this discussed on MSNBC they mentioned Hati but not Africa. Did you just decide to add that because it bolsters your interpretation that the quote was racist or did he say it? I know that the left is so politically correct that they have a difficult time admitting that there are any differences between Hati and Norway other than the predominant skin color, but if you were to leave race out of the equation and make a list of the other predominant traits of both countries I wonder how long it would take to determine whether there is anything other than race that he could have been talking about.

    do you think there's a possibility that the basis of what he is talking about might not necessarily be 100% skin colour but things like ... standard of living, levels of education, infrastructure, political and social stability and so forth when making the assessment that a country is a ******** ??
