  1. Dems Rebuild

    How is teaching teenagers a trade at a tax payer funded high school any different than teaching them those same trades at a tax payer funded trade school? I guess they enter the workforce 12-24 months earlier but it's still 'free' education.
  2. The Way to Early 2020 Presidential Election

    I don't think they need to have 15 candidates during the primaries but I'm going to be pretty damned upset if we only get two options like the last time around.
  3. The Republican Utopia

    This photo is from October 20th, 2008 and it took less than a minute to google that info. I'm sure Weinstein was preying on women ten years ago but it's impossible to know if Rogan knew anything about it.
  4. Immigration Ban

    The only sense I can make of this is that the white house strategists want to use immigration as a wedge issue to get people to the polls in November.
  5. Trump and the Press

    That whole interview on the lawn was nuts. If you click on the tweet by Aaron Rupar that is quoted here you can see a bunch of crazy clips.
  6. DOJ Initial Russia Hearings

    Manafort is almost certainly going to jail later this week when his bail is revoked.
  7. The Way to Early 2020 Presidential Election

    We also need to see where health insurance premiums end up two years from now. It's going to be hard to blame Obamacare when Trump was declaring it dead a couple months ago. Canada will probably make the same targeted tariffs. Another big influence is what happens to congress in 2018. People like the balance where one party doesn't control both congress and the Presidency.
  8. POLL: Did you vote for Hillary or against Trump?

    I'm really curious how many people across the nation feel this way. There just aren't that many states where a single voter can feel like they've really made a legitimate difference in how things turn out, for both the winners and the losers. Locally it feels like my vote matters but at the state and national level, not so much.
  9. Healthcare Reform

    He almost has to be giving them something. What other reason is there for massive price decreases? I can't imagine shareholders will be too excited about voluntarily slashing profits.
  10. Worst loss of the Pelini Era

    Wisconsin didn't even have their starting QB (Stave) for this game. Any decent gameplan would have revolved around stopping the run and making the backup QB try to win the game in the air.
  11. The Republican Utopia

    I see comments similar to this on twitter and I dismiss them as trolls and bots. Then later in the day on a talk radio show I hear how the conservative host is very upset because a bunch of people are texting in these same kinds of comments. What a bunch of s#!tty people.
  12. National Popular Vote Interstate Compact

    Use the census every ten years to re proportion the electoral college votes and call it a day.
  13. Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been pen tapped

    I think you're right about all of this. I've always believed that Comey didn't reveal the Manafort/Papadapolous/Russia questions surrounding the 2016 election because they thought Trump would lose and they didn't want to burn an ongoing investigation. The voters deserved to know that members of his campaign were under surveillance just as much as we deserved to know about Hillary being investigated.
  14. Healthcare Reform

    Between this revelation from Tom Price and yesterday Marco Rubio realizing that the tax breaks aren't trickling down I think I see the re-election plan shaping up. Feigned ignorance. I mean, who could have predicted that these things were going to happen?
  15. Kanye West is woke
