It exists, sure. Much like my 96 year old grandmother suffering from dementia, mobility issues, and near crippling depression still exists.

And nothing's wrong with the 9th and 10th Amendments at all.

Quote from: Tinguren4 at Breitbart
After the endless chance [sic] of lock her up! How ironic will it be if Trump is the one that actually sits behind bars? Surely it would be proof that there is a God. It would also be proof that he has a sense of humor.

So I think I've finally cracked the code when it comes to Trump and how he views this investigation.

He has no clue how a real criminal investigation is actually run or proceeds.

He tweeted today about how there's no "smocking gun" found so therefore there's no collusion and other things.  The thing is, "smocking guns" only exist in crime dramas and the such.  There often isn't a concrete "ah-hah gotcha!" piece of evidence in real life.  But in the Orange Piss Pot's head, there has to be.  He doesn't get that all the testimony, all the investigations, and all the shit Mueller's been finding out about is the result of a real investigation.  And it's got him scared.

Ironbite-and his hand picked SCOTUS Bro just joined the majority in not taking up a case that could've spelt dire news for abortion rights.

Oh? A two-thirds majority, then; only four justices need to agree that the Court should take a case for them to consider it. (This is to prevent a majority on the Court from determining its docket.)

The four liberal judges, Roberts and Kavanaugh declined to hear the case.  So they only had three agreeing.

What might happen is that Kavanaugh just keeps declining to hear said cases, and lets the ever-more-conservative circuit courts uphold restrictive abortion laws in GOP-run states.

Also, fuck you, Harry Reid, you idiot.

Did he actually write "smocking gun?" He did it twice which gives me the impression that he really doesn't know how to spell smoking. When he was shitting on the toilet in the White House did he take the time to think about how to smell smoking? Did he go is there a c in there or not? I do have the best words so it must be a c. Or did he just type it out thinking he's been spelling the word right his entire life?

What do you think?

And today, Trump lost the shutdown fight until the end of this farce.  He gave a sound bite that can and will come back to bite him in the ass.

"I will be proud to shut down the government over the border wall."

Now, before people come here telling me that I'm wrong and it won't do anything, think about what has just happened.  We had a 40 seat pick up in the House giving the Democrats a very wide berth to do whatever they want.  And the biggest reason that most voters cited in voting against Republicans was Trump.  And he's just handed the Democrats a great weapon to use against him.

Ironbite-this man is....amazing.

If you honestly think that McConnell wouldn't have changed the rules the way he did regardless of what Harry Reid had done in the past, you're hopelessly naive and I hope you stay safe in this dangerous world.

Of course McConnell would've changed the rules. I have no illusions on that point. They learned from Frist.

What Reid should have done was either a) not change the rules at all, forcing the GOP to own the whole thing or b) change the rules as soon as possible after Brown's win in 2010, and then fill every court vacancy he could. What he should not have done is what he did, which is wait until shortly before the Democrats were almost certainly going to lose the Senate and leave only a year and a bit to get to putting ideologically friendly justices on the federal bench.

I think it's great, and tacking on the words "Trump Shutdown" is the icing on the cake. America responds to sound bites and democrats need to get better at their sound bite game so this is a start.

I've been thinking about trump's idiotic wall and that lead me to a thought. Who would actually build the wall? Ok, fine. Who would hire the illegals to build the wall? My shot in the dark guess is someone he personally knows, someone who will give him kickbacks. Nothing to do with his base or border security or even sticking it to anyone. For profit, same reason he's involved with Russia and China. Anyways, that's my thought.

That was kinda the point, Chad. Most of what he does and says is to profit him, his family, or friends.  From manipulating the markets to his dealings with countries, its done for short term profit. Follow the money, find the truth.
