  1. Trump Domestic Policy - Budgets, etc

    and they'll get to run against the Dems raising taxes.
  2. Racism - It's a real thing.

    The next time someone says they don't understand what 'white privileged' is, show them this story.
  3. Paul Ryan not running for reelection

    This person gets paid for his political opinions.
  4. Stormy Daniels vs. The Donald

    It also means that it's almost certainly not Stormy Daniels related which I believe is still a civil matter. It would have to be a significant criminal matter for a federal judge to sign off on it. A crime is a crime but no federal judge is going to authorize a raid like this over something trivial considering the target(s). They're seizing documents protected by attorney-client privilege.
  5. Stormy Daniels vs. The Donald

    It's hard to overstate what a big deal this is. The lawyer of the POTUS was raided by the FBI. Holy crap.
  6. Trump and the Press

    If the item you purchase from Amazon is fulfilled by Amazon they will collect tax. If the item you purchase through Amazon gets fulfilled by one of the thousands of online resellers that use Amazon as their storefront, you probably aren't paying taxes at the time of purchase. I'm not clear why there is a difference in the way it's handled but I'm guessing fairly complicated. We the consumers are supposed to report the non-taxed sales at the end of the year but nobody does it. It's not like this is an Amazon problem either. You don't pay sales tax at the time of purchase if you buy through Ebay. Right now most of the best electronics deals available are done through Ebay because you don't have to pay tax on your $2000 OLED tv. Anyone can do it too as long as the sale is made across state lines though we're supposed to be reporting these annually. It's not just Bezos that should be upset about this. Shareholders should also be livid about what is going on with the Trump/Amazon feud. He's destroying value in that company when their share prices go down because of his tweets. It's lunacy to watch the President attack a private business.
  7. Gun Control

    Keep those thoughts and prayers on deck.
  8. Trump's America

    It's official. She lasted 197 days.
  9. Trump's America

    WTF is going on? This isn't some jackhole in the youtube comments section. This is an actual elected congressman.
  10. Poll: Abortion legality belief spectrum

    The problem with a limit of 10 weeks is that testing for things like downs syndrome and spina bifida occur around weeks 16-18 if I'm remembering correctly.
  11. DOJ Initial Russia Hearings

    The President has to grant the authority for the NSA to do that kind of work? It seems like ensuring our elections are free from outside meddling would be standard NSA business.
  12. Parkland, FL High School Shooting

    I had the same thoughts in regard to both high capacity magazines as well as semi automatic. What possible need is there for either thing beyond the obvious that the bad guys have it and so should the good guys? Then I saw an article about someone in one of the more southern states that uses his AR to hunt feral hogs on his property. Makes total sense and its something I would have never thought of. There are reasons out there.

    There's an approximately zero percent chance that McConnell and/or Ryan ever allow a gun control bill to make it to the floor of congress to even be voted upon. The only way anything happens is if a veto-proof Democrat majority is voted in later this year and I'm not even sure that's possible. Trump will never sign a gun control bill which means the earliest anything possibly changes at a federal level is 2021. They couldn't even get legislature done on bump stocks after Las Vegas when almost everyone hates the things and don't use them. I applaud those high school kids in Florida for doing what they are doing but at the end of day I don't think it's going to make a damn bit of difference. Sad.
  14. Parkland, FL High School Shooting

    I think the number of people who would ban all guns is higher than you think. I own a couple and I'd happily give them up if everyone else did it as well, but I think we all know that simply isn't realistic.
