  1. Oo, I must have hit a nerve. I really hope the Tulsi thing is a rumor just like the Bloomberg/Hillary thing. I hope he is not that stupid. I'm not helping any? Fair enough. Neither are they and they're acting like goons. Did you see what they did to Joe Biden? Keep it classy, Bernie bots. If we elect him we'll just be trading one cult for another. No thank you. I'll vote for him, and then spend the next 4 years making him a one termer.
  2. They won't. Bernie is willing to burn down the Democratic Party, just like Trump did the GOP, if he doesn't get the nomination. I for one am sick and tired already of my party being held hostage to these goons. They are just like Trumpers--there's no reasoning with them and they can't see the forest for the trees. I saw on Twitter this morning that Sanders might nominate Tulsi Gabbard as VP. Like I needed another reason to suspect he's in cahoots with the Russians. One destroyer per party--he's no more a Democrat than Trump is a Republican. If he does nominate Gabbard we will absolutely hand Trump the election and it's sayonara United States of America. When this is all over we should do what the Republicans should have done to the Tea Party: banish the left to the fringes or force them to start their own party. They are blind and ignorant and short-sighted and we don't have time for their childishness and selfishness. They need to grow up and deal in reality. I used to think there was room in the tent for them, but no more. They are holding us hostage to their adolescent whims and Bernie does nothing to put them straight. Why? Because he, too, is a narcissist. That's not to say I'm not sympathetic to some of their positions. I am. But Bernie is a demagogue just like Trump and he is not the person to deliver that message. That being said, I would pull the lever for Bloomberg. Anyone who thinks he's as bad as Trump is an ideological fool. This is not a policy election. It's about getting rid of Trump. They Bernie bots are either with that or they're not.
  3. You do realize that when Trump says he's not leaving and drops anvil sized hints about 3rd terms, and when Pence blatantly says that Pelosi may well be the last Speaker of the House for a very long time...they're not kidding? You do know that, right?
  4. I have no idea. But SOMEONE is going to have to do it. DC police? The military? Edit: NVM. Tywin answered that pretty well.
  5. Then We the People storm the Bastille and he'll go out just like the Romanovs. Before anyone gets their hackles up, I hope that doesn't happen. But if he refuses to leave and the Secret Service doesn't do its job and remove him, then there's really no other option.
  6. Democrats will never forgive Jeff Flake for Kavanaugh.
  7. Ours isn't till April so the field should be winnowed pretty good by then. The pragmatic part of me says Biden. We need someone who doesn't need on the job training and can hit the ground running on Day 1, someone who can start to repair the damage done with our allies. Nobody knows foreign policy better than Biden. Nobody. He'll surround himself with smart, dedicated people. I would love to vote for Warren--I just like her. But nothing--NOTHING--is more important right now than getting rid of Trump. Policy can wait. I cannot vote for Bernie. I'm sympathetic to some of his positions, but another cult of personality is something we don't need. His "supporters" are just like Trumpers and he does nothing to rein them in. Bloomberg is actually growing on me. He knows Trump personally, knows his weaknesses, and can beat him at his own game. He's vastly more wealthy than Trump and it's a joy to watch him put the knifebin and twist it every chance he gets. He's also said he'll flood the airwaves no matter who the nominee is, and I can get behind that. Too bad he doesn't just buy Fox News...
  8. Especially in this part of the world. My (Democrat) rep made sure one of his campaign ads showed him shooting a gun.
  9. Those redneck cowards will piss their pants and run home to mama when (not if) the left starts shooting back. They're all talk.
  10. It means the Emperor is going to dissolve that body permanently.
  11. I don't either. The oldest Gen Xers will be 55 this year if you can believe that. But lumping in 45 year olds with senior citizens? Our "whatever" attitude has kept us relatively sane. We just sit back and watch the boomers and the millenials go at it and pop the popcorn.
  12. Hi there! No. I'd prefer a harness. If you teach them young enough they take right to it. Older cats can be taught to use one, but it takes some work.
  13. Nah, she's found her forever home and she knows it. It will just take her a few days to get acclimated and settle into your routine. ☺ Good luck!
  14. This is the craziest game I've ever seen. Andy Reid is going to get his ring.
  15. The thing that bothered me was Kylo dying. Now hear me out. He and Rey had a very strong bond that always seemed to me meant that light and dark aren't opposites and that there is a middle ground that should be embraced, not defeated. Like ice and fire, they're complementary and mirror images of each other. Light and dark belong together. Yin and yang. The Ouroborous. Two sides of the same coin. Recognition that light does not always win. It would have been more faithful to the struggles of the human spirit to show that light and dark can co-exist without being self-destructive. One does not need to be pure evil to embrace the dark side of his nature. That, in my opinion, would truly be bringing balance to the Force. There is rarely pure good and pure evil in this world. We are all light and dark. So instead of learning to live with both aspects, in 20 or 30 years there will be a new baddie because the dark side has been repressed and feared. All this has happened before and it will happen again.
  16. I agree. For all that Democrats are supposed to be pro-LGBTQ and love Mayor Pete, they can't stand the thought of two women having sex with each other or a threesome. Another relic of our Puritan heritage, I suppose. Although I can't help but think if photos of Lindsay Graham having sex with teenage boys were released, he'd win re-election in a landslide. I'm a Democrat, but I think we need to do some soul searching as a party. We need to keep in mind here that she's a victim of domestic violence (and the husband has proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt), and she's being victimized again. I expect that from Republicans, but not from Dems or liberals. The quest for fairness and equality is turning into the Inquisition.
  17. I agree it's her decision to step down. Maybe it's the abuse talking but if she resigns then HE wins. He gets what he wants, and so do the Republicans. Rule #1 of dealing with abusive ex husbands: never give them what they want. Break their power over you and don't under any circumstances allow them to rule your life, no matter what. I have no doubt she is suffering--he has done the worst possible thing to her short of killing her because that's what abusive men do. But if she drops out, she is setting women in politics back decades. She's showing that we're not tough enough to go right in the gutter with the men and slog it out. We're always afraid exes are going to do something to get back at us and most of them do just that, although it usually involves the children. I'm sorry, I just think she should stand and fight.
  18. Hill wasn't even in Congress yet, so I don't think the subordinate part is relevant. And even if it is, so what? Again, men do this shit all the time and that's just fine and dandy.
  19. It's like women aren't allowed to be human and have sex and relationships with the people of their choosing. I'll say it again: she should NOT resign. Personally, I think MeToo has gone way too far and this is the result. Democrats are so anxious to take the high road when they should be worried about WINNING. At most, she should have finished her term and not run again. Let the voters sort it out. What happened to Al Franken was a travesty. He should never have resigned either. Her husband committed a crime. So did everyone who disseminated those photos. And I hope they go to jail for a long, long time. Now, on that note, let's see some Epstein photos. Fair is fair, after all.
  20. I don't understand why it's even an issue. Male politicians have affairs every minute of every day and it's just another day at the office for them. Yet another form of misogyny from holier than thou old guys. She should NOT resign over it. Men don't; in fact their wives stand by them and bear the brunt of the humiliation.
  21. And Barr was talking to Murdoch just yesterday. Coincidence?
  22. They can't if they don't know about it. Women are way smarter about this than men. We've been dealing with this for millennia, and we'll always be one step ahead. We shouldn't have to resort to such methods in this day and age, but here we are.
  23. And we women will go back to the old fashioned way, the way we did it for tens of thousands of years. And men will never know we were pregnant in the first place. What are they going to do, exterminate pennyroyal and chamomile? I'd love to see them try.
  24. Make no mistake, this benefits Putin. EVERYTHING he does benefits Russia.
