31 But choom has a brilliant idea to allow student loans be rolled into home mortages



This actually seems possible, if you could find a house sufficiently
under market value, which seems unlikely. It would be like paying off
your college loans with a 2nd mortgage.
==========
I've heard that done; back in the housing bubble run-up.

Some guys who bought houses to "flip." Instead of using the loan surplus to renovate the houses, they used it to pay off their student loans.

Then they filed bankruptcy on the houses.

It's well established in bankruptcy that it is not fraud to prefer one creditor over another when you're making your payments.

Even worse with the sound and inappropriate laughter. Public corruption is a different investigation than the classified info investigation.

Repost from stomped dump:
Big happy news today is that the left got Scholastic to yank a book titled "A Birthday Cake for George Washington" because it showed GW' s cook and niece smiling as they bake the cake. Doncha know they were slaves and therefore never smiled in their lives, oh no, they spent their life weeping and wailing in pancakes as they drudged through the President's mansion.

35 I generally like Judge Judy on Fox (although she has one of the most irritating voices in existence), but she really has the kneepads on for Trump.

I was quite irritated by a segment on her show last night where she did man on the street interviews with New Yorkers regarding Ted Cruz. "What do you think of Ted Cruz?" "He's stoopid!" "Why are people so jealous of New Yorkers?" "Because we are awesome!" "Where is Ted Cruz from?" "Canada!"

I enjoyed my visits to the Big Apple, but that segment actually did the reverse of what Judge Judy thought it did. It made New Yorkers look like a bunch of assholes.

And the New York assumption that any criticism is due to "jealousy" is ridiculous. I am personally more comfortable in smaller cities. The entire universe is not secretly dying to live on a crowded, expensive island. There are people who want a house and a lawn and more than 1 kid and the ability to exercise their 2nd amendment rights.

He cited the case of South African artist Steve Cohen who was found guilty of indecent exposure in 2014 after dancing around in front of the Eiffel Tower with a live rooster attached to his penis with a ribbon.

It's the mouth of the Merrimack River, which like my home river (despite the fact that I'm in exile in CT) the North runs directly W->E. When there's a dropping tide and a wind from the east, both of them set up an impassable chop at the mouth.

297 "Ship of Fools " is a great essay. I remember one part when O'Rourke was listening to some American lefty savage America in front of the Soviet Intourist guides and O'Rourke became so angry he had to leave the scene. Later on one of the Soviets says to O'Rourke, "We were not so impressed with what (American lefty) said. After all, we can read Pravda."

O'Rourke was at his peak in the 1980's. The essay about traveling through Lebanon during their civil war was great too.

304 "Constitutional convention could ..." turn into a disaster.

A few decades back, after Roe v Wade, the idea of a constitutional convention came up among pro-lifers. Ultimately, it was nixed because there was no way to contain the damage a constitutional convention could inflict.

The definition of "state" was a bit obscure when applied to a constitutional convention. Did it mean the Governor (not likely), the state legislature or the delegation to the convention. If it is the latter, the power of each state delegation could rewrite the Constitution without limit. Since they are the "state", the normal requirements for ammending the Constitution would fail on their shoulders, rather than the state legislators. Additionally, given the venue, it would be unlikely that states could reign in their delegations, except by the selection of the delegates. Remember, they are the "state" at this point.

If the state delegation was overrun by "forces not akin to your values", expect a disaster.

Yep, but it is hardly worth standing in line for 2 hours for twenty seconds.

I am terrible at predictions, no ability whatsoever.

But the next president is going to have to know enough of the right people to set up a cabinet and give him good advice.

TFG didn't know anyone and had to rely on his fixers who only knew people like themselves, so everything is done in secret, behind closed doors and in a corrupt manner completely divorced from the law and from the constitution - and they never gave a damn.

This is a potential problem with all the newcomers, in various evolutions of the dilemma. (who does Carly know, who does Carson know?)

The Cup, and all its content, including any air in the supposedly 'empty' portion of said cup, are US Government Property.
We will allow you to fill the cup, but only with Health Services approved ingredients, and you must of course, place both a warning label, and list all contents of the cup, upon said cup.
When filling said cup, you must abide by all Federal Guidelines and laws about Gender Equality, Disability Access, and Labor Laws, while paying the Federally mandated Minimum Wage.
The Empty Portion of said cup is of course, under the auspices of the EPA, and will adhere to all Federal Air Quality regulations, or the cup will be confiscated.
You will also pay property tax upon said cup, yearly, or a Lien will be placed upon the cup, and it may be sold if back taxes are not paid.
Is this cup is in the possession of an Undocumented American, then all of the above will not be enforced, due to the soon to be enacted Cup Immigration Bill.... which will soon either be enacted by Congress or enforced through Presidential order.

431 US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro voiced a particularly sharp attack against Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria on Monday, accusing Israeli authorities of holding them to different standards of law.

He expressed the unusually harsh criticism during a speech at the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) conference in Tel Aviv.

Shapiro condemned two brutal stabbing attacks on Sunday and Monday as "barbaric acts of terrorism," before launching into a critique of Israel's policies concerning the communities in Judea-Samaria.

I think Cruz's general inclination toward more freedom/less government interference is way more likely to actually improve the business climate in the US.

I'd think DT would be far more aware of the deleterious effects of unnecessary overregulation than Cruz would be, being as how he has to deal with them in his work. He's well aware of the role that high taxes have in discouraging business, he mentioned it today in that speech.

To my knowledge, being a Senator (or a lawyer either, for that matter) has far less governmental restrictions than a developer.

And another point, I think DT makes the crowd laugh a lot more than Cruz does. Don't get me wrong, Cruz reciting lines from The Princess Bride is all kinds of cool, but he's not known for it.

478 I'd think DT would be far more aware of the
deleterious effects of unnecessary overregulation than Cruz would be,
being as how he has to deal with them in his work. He's well aware of
the role that high taxes have in discouraging business, he mentioned it
today in that speech.



To my knowledge, being a Senator (or a lawyer either, for that matter) has far less governmental restrictions than a developer.



And another point, I think DT makes the crowd laugh a lot more than Cruz does. Don't get me wrong, Cruz reciting lines from The Princess Bride is all kinds of cool, but he's not known for it.

Posted by: BackwardsBoy at January 18, 2016 12:39 PM (LUgeY)

I don't agree.

One of the things that bugs me about Trump is he is perfectly fine with crony capitalism which depends on not the lack of government regulation but instead gaming regulation for one's own benefit. Business men are no more inclined (in fact less inclined) than the average person to actually want a free market exactly because they can game the system to benefit themselves. Its why Trump's immediate goto is tariffs and its also why he supports ethanol subsidies/mandates... because he does not have an intellectual attachment to the idea of smaller government and gaming large government is his comfort zone.
I much prefer Cruz's intellectual hatred of government in general as I believe it is more likely that he will actually shrink the size of the government.

So, story time, I shall tell the story of my Bourbon Awakening. For the purposes of this discussion, Jack Daniels is Bourbon. I am familiar with all of the debate, and whether it has to be from that county and how many times distilled and also shut up. JD tastes like Bourbon so it's bourbon.

I grew up not knowing anything and thinking that Jack Daniels was white trash hooch. And Scotch was sophisticated. So I'd drink Dewar's (blended fecking whiskey! I denounce myself).

So I moved to Germany in the early 90s and Jack Daniels cost exactly the same as Dewars. And I said to myself, "Self, why are these Euros paying as much for hillbilly shine as they are for noble Scotch?".

So Self drank some of the Jack Daniels and found it to be superior.

I think the acquisition of the Penn Central Railyards on the west of Manhattan was arranged with personal political connections and pull. If I remember correctly, and I may not, it was funded either with city funds or investor funds, or both, not Trumps personal money. I think his development of the Commodore was similar.

587 Excepr Trump saying he identifies more as a democrat than a republican, that the economy does better under Democrats, that only police and criminals need assault weapons, that he wouldn't ban partial birth abortions , that it was cruel and malicious to deport illegals, that single payer healthcare should be implemented in the US , that we should tax the rich 15% of their assets. , that privately owned real estate developers should be able to declare eminent domain to seize property, that people on the no fly list should be banned from buying a gun, that we want Russia to bomb Syria, that we shouldn't let Russia bomb Syria , that we should let in Syrian refugees , that we should ban Syrian refugees, that we should continue to fund planned parenthood and that everything will be awesome with him, he's the perfect GOP nominee.

Heh, I looked at his Oscar nominations, because I thought he was nominated for the wise and slightly supernatural caddy thing years ago, but...


Ali. Lost to Denzel for Training Day.


The Pursuit of Happyness (which I never saw/never heard of). Lost to Forrest Whitaker for Last King of Scotland (which I never saw/never heard of).


So yeah, those happened in the prior decade. Hollywood did their black thing. This is the era of LBGTQRSTUV. The Fresh Prince has to play a dude what wants to wear dresses if he wants another nomination. And maybe keep the accent. With some wise/supernaturally stuff going on. It can't hurt.

605 Some of the Trump critics begin to sound like the story of the guy on the roof in a flood, praying to God for rescue.

Man in a boat comes by and offers to save him.
Guy says no, God will save me.
A helicopter comes by and dangles a ladder.
Guy waves it off, yelling that God will save him.
The flood water rise and the guy, about to drown, says, "God, I have been a good man all my life, why have you abandoned me?"
God replies: "I sent a boat and a helicopter. Why did you reject My help."

God works in mysterious ways. Don't let your biases blind you to what may be happening.

Ace, having not seen it, continually excused himself from the table to avoid being outed as less-than-informed, thus spending the bulk of the evening fapping in the restroom.

In order to catch up, he spent all of Sunday, late into the night, binge watching Netflix, trying desperately to become informed.

Now, filled with knowledge, he sleeps the sleep of those poised and ready to speak on the subjects of the day.

Blue collar whites make up a smaller slice of the demographic pie than they did in 1980. That's one reason the Dems feel so free to give them the finger. If they had the pull they once had, Sarah Palin would have been elected VP.

708 Here at the HQ posters have repeatedly commented on the new tactic the TFG administration has pioneered for getting its way and changing laws without Congressional action.

The administration convinces some SJW org to file a lawsuit challenging the law and then the Justice Department "settles" the lawsuit and "agrees" to change enforcement as TFG wanted to do all along, but was prevented from doing by the inconvenient law.

Now, NYC has adapted the same tactic and eliminated some useful tactics in pursuing terrorists. They've even agreed to throw away knowledge on radicalization, gained over years in tough investigations. Fucking amazing.

717 "conservatives" seem especially hostile to Trump supporters, I'm guessing because they feel the finally have a chance for POTUS and Trump is ruining it. True Dat ...

But conservatives that support Trump see the dynamics he brings, the media attention, the huuuge excited crowds. The open border and China issues are now "in play", not an issue relegated (in the MSM) to racist xenophobic conservatives.

On the biggest issues, I think Trump moves the needle most. Border control is a must, and Trump is less likely to be bought off by the CoCs. Cruz not long ago wanted 5 times as many H-1B and other work visas. But now they both say they want to save American jobs first.

Making better deals with China is right, and business guys on Cavuto felt Trump understood the issues best. He won't just throw tariffs on everything, but he will negotiate much better, starting from strength (tariff threat). Trump is likely to win back the Reagan Democrats, and even union bosses see many members flipping to Trump partly on trade.

And only Trump took the strong stand on stopping the Muslim invasion (till we figure wtf is going on). He said there would be exceptions (business), but few are willing to even breach that subject for fear of the PC police. Looking at Europe, a leader that will say NO in no uncertain terms is vital.

I see a Trump schlonging of Hillary more likely than Rand Paul's "lose in a landslide" concern trolling. Cruz has to find big money and has to win over the GOPe that do seem to hate him. Trumps favorables keep climbing as he becomes candidate more than TV celebrity.

If Cruz is going to be the nominee... and that's a huge IF, he's going to have to survive whatever Gope has in store, ALREADY. Trump isn't doing anything that Rove and Steve Schmitt and others of their ilk haven't already put together.


Months and months ago, the theory was, Obama was putting all Hilery's dirty laundry out there, so it loses its value AFTER she gets nominated. People believe that, and maybe it's true.


Have any of the folks here who are worried about Trump and Cruz going at it even considering the possibility they WANT to put this stuff out there? In case, you know, they have to team up at some point?

Trump doesn't yet have anywhere near majority GOP support. As weaker candidates fall away, anti-Trump primary voterswill coalesce around either Cruz or Rubio, which is--in my view--is where the real fight is.

So no, neither Cruz or Rubio have to make a sweep to stay in the game. The others fall away and then they duke it out. The one who puts the other away takes on Trump. How that turns out is anybody's guess.

And then Jeb Bush, always considered the smartest and best Bush Brother, driven mad byshattered dreams, goes beserk and kills everybody in a bloody, chaotic denouement reminiscent of the robbery scene in 'Heat'.

773 As weaker candidates fall away, anti-Trump primary
voterswill coalesce around either Cruz or Rubio, which is--in my
view--is where the real fight is.

Posted by: troyriser at January 18, 2016 01:53 PM


Leaving aside the strengths/weaknesses of the individual candidates, I think you -- and a lot of the Mighty Conservative Political Anal-yst Hotshots -- are missing is this: Trump has changed the dynamics of the process in a major way. A lot of his supporters are not Real Republicans or Reagan Democrats or susceptible to any of the standard labels. They are plain ol' folks who have been attracted to the notion of a candidate who says what they think and represents a turn away from Professional Politicians.

It's Common Core Math, where two candidates whose poll numbers are steady in the 0-10% range will coalesce, and the total for the surviving candidate will still be in the 0-10% range.

We refuse to launch an expensive and probably unsuccessful missionary effort to save New Yorkers and the residents of other Democrat dominated cities from themselves and the consequences of their bad choices.

Just as Winston Churchill refused to be intimidated by an appeal to the tradition of the navy, dismissing them as rum, sodomy and the lash, it is reasonable to dismiss New York values as arrogance, sixewalk masturbation booths and an unwillingness to pay their bills.

Not true. Big rallies are a possible indicator of support but not a guarantee of majority support. As I recall, Crazy Uncle Ron Paul had some tremendously dynamic and crowded rallies in the last presidential election cycle--thundrous rallies which amounted to approximately jack and shit when it came to primary victories.

It is cute how Trump supporters run to protect their Beloved from any remark that might be viewed as less than flattering. Also reminiscent of Ron Paul.

I'm a fairly hardcore conservative/ Tea Party type, and honestly, what Republican is conservative? None of the ones out there.

Trump isn't a conservative, however, he is an outsider, so he's not a RINO, and he's not playing the Washington game. Which is why I support him and his potential SMOD/ LIB administration.

Honestly, I don't know how much that matters. Palin drew huge crowds too. (Yeah, I know those rallies was much closer to the election and not enough to counteract the Cult of JEF.)

Yes, it seems necessary for a candidate , whether it's JEF, Bern, Palin or Trump, to elicit powerful support and devotion from their followers and draw huge crowds at rallies - but that doesn't necessarily tell you how well they will do in the general. Polls, at least the presidential ones, have done a much better job at that. Trump's unfavorable are pretty high.

But then, I know only 1 person who is a Trump supporter, or who admits to being one. Both the libs and the conservatives I know (and the conservatives are not GOPe either) hate Trump. I mean, really hate. So when you talk about cross over appeal, you have to remember that he also repulses many people across the political spectrum.

(I would vote for Trump in the general, I like some of the things he says, but I simply don't trust him. I trust the Dems even less, but that's not saying much.)

849 A rich Arab walks into a bar and is about to order a drink when he sees a guy wearing a Jewish skullcap, a prayer shawl/tzitzis, with traditional ear locks. He figures the guy to be a Jew and wants to embarrass him so he shouts to the bartender: "Drinks for the house, everyone except the Jew."

Soon after the round is poured, the Jew gives him a big smile, waves at him, and calls out: "Thank you!" This infuriates the Arab.

He shouts out again: Drinks for the house, but not the Jew. Again, the Jew is not fussed, continues to smile, and yells:"Thank you!"

It happens a third time. The Arab, real cranky and asks the bartender: "What the hell is the matter with that Jew? I've ordered three rounds of drinks for everyone in the bar, over a 100 drinkers, all except him and all the silly bugger does is smile and thank me! Is he nuts?"

"Nope", says the bartender. "He owns the place."

878 Folks, Trump isn't winning because of conservative values. I don't think anyone's going to mistake the man for a rock-ribbed philosophical conservative. No, he's winning because he's a non-weirdo economic nationalist with at least some signs of being a cultural traditionalist. Right now, that is the message people want. They want things stacked for them (the way it "should" be) rather than against them (the way they see it having been for years and years). Trump promises that and people are looking for someone...anyone...to turn the tides back their way.

Will he? No clue. Can he? Hell if I know. Is this what's best? Eh...what's the old phrase about democracy beginning at 1200 calories per day? That's what we're seeing the economic equivalent play out right now.

I'm comfortable in my own skin and know with some certainty who and what I am, what I could be if I try hard enough.

Posted by: ThunderB, Bitchin Betty at January 18, 2016 02:06 PM (zOTsN)

I don't think Trump is a hypocrite for this... those are the rules and he knows how to game them. As I said last night to someone, what worries me is that Trump has no natural conservative instincts that I can identify beyond immigration.


What he has is a history of being very comfortable with a crony capitalist system that has enriched him and no evident inclination to want that system to change. His eminent domain abuse more than the buying of access is actually far more worrisome as a character issue is it shows a willingness to hold the government gun to the head of actual identifiable people in order to rob them of their property.
I love Trump on immigration and I am ecstatic about his giving the middle finger to the press and the PC police BUT I worry about what else he will do if he becomes president. That said, he is my second choice after Cruz because he is the only other real choice for conservatives in the race.

976 Listening to the Trump speech excerpts on Rush, it's clear he is quite unfamiliar with Christianity or the Bible. "Two" Corinthians. The tone of his voice sounded insincere. I would have spoken of protecting Christians rather than Christianity, but whatever.

Just noting this. It's not very important to me what he said or how he said it.

Out of all of the contenders, Cruz is the one I trust the most to protect my rights as a Christian. As much as one can trust a politician, that is.

I agree with you, generally speaking that a spouse's job shouldn't be an issue for a politican. But Cruz's wife is more than just "an employee" of GS. She's pretty high up the food chain, managing director.

The thing is anyone who goes to Harvard Law and then ends up a US Senator is most likely going to be married to someone who is an executive somewhere. Either GS, or a law firm or a Fortune 500 company, each entity having done some bad stuff at some point. So if we're going to disqualify Ted Cruz cuz his wife is at GS, then we're going to have to disqualify pretty much every one.

In my mind's eye, the commercial continues, with a dazed Jerry Jones standing in the elevator, alone as the doors open. He's not hurt, mind you, but he's standing there in his underwear. His fancy 10 thousand dollar suit gone. Along with his can of Pepsi.

You really didn't think we were going to win that one, did you? Oh, yeah, it was tough to have hopes raised and then crushed.

But losing that game was no where as bad as losing to the Seahawks in the playoffs last year. Now, that was devastating.

I'm not sure TARP kept GS afloat - obviously it helped. And yes there is an incesstuous relationship between GS (and WS) and DC. But I have no clue if that means that Mrs. Cruz holds the same view as others within GS. She may. I have no clue. I'm certainly not certain of that.

Another was a grand redevelopment for Bridgeport (the asshole of CT -- Atlantic City without the casinos). Post Kelo it might have gone through.

That's the difficulty for *everyone else* in this election.

Trump is uniquely about the rejection of DC generally and the GOPe specifically. With a proposed crackdown on Mexicans and mohammadans being the primary policy question that's of any note.

Everyone else is running on fixing the system from within, so all they have is policy positions to question (which is to say, doubt). For them any reason to suspect they might be loyal to DC or the banksters is disqualifying.

See, here we go. You are just rationalizing why we should ignore Trump's major flaws.

First, what makes you think Trump would "reject" DC? What does that even mean anyway? President Trump would... close cabinet departments? Fire a bunch of people? When has he said he would do this? Which departments would he close, and whom would he fire? Does that even matter to you? And what makes you think Trump would "reject" the GOPe? Of all of them he'd be the one most likely to make deals with them. He is not personally invested in destroying Ryan or McConnell or any other of them, because he's not an ideological conservative. He doesn't care if he makes a deal with McConnell or if he goes over his head. If you want Trump to "reject" "DC and the GOPe", don't you want at least a few details on what he is going to do?

And once he is done "rejecting" "DC and the GOPe", then what? Do you even care?

I understand, but what is anyone supposed to do? You can ignore the law, as it's interpreted, and risk either criminal or civil penalties. You can implore your legislators to change the law, but you know full well these people are no more or less a corrupt process to the law as the courts.


The implication of course, is that Trump is a bad man for following the course that leads him to make money.

I get it. He's either a slimy, greedy businessman, or he's a shrewd wheeler dealer (to borrow the phrase from upthread).


Or he's both. I guess we don't have to like it, but I have to admit, when it comes to THIS Presidential race, this is not a make or break issue for me. Not even close.

In other words, he didn't look at the SC decision and go out and get gay married, or go out and start killing babies.

1271 Goldman Sachs would have gone broke in the financial crisis were it not for extraordinary actions taken by the Federal government, including the Fed ignoring the law to make it a bank holding company eligible for Fed emergency loans. Had the Fed done the same for Bear Stearns months before, it wouldn't have gone broke. Hank Paulson, former co-head of Goldman was Treasury Secretary at the time. Coincidence?

Goldman profited greatly from the subprime crisis until the bear turned around on it. It just paid a $5 billion fine related to this.

I could go on. Maybe Bernie Sanders is on to something.

As to Cruz, it's "bad optics" as they say in the business. It adds to his challenge that he's not a "regular guy."

Heh. Time for an old Texas joke.

One day, back when Texas was a Republic, a wealthy English gentleman was traveling about in his fancy carriage looking for some suitable land. He happened upon a rancher ankle-deep in his corral. Pulling up his team of matched black beauties well back from the mess, he gazed upon the rancher, mistaking him for an employee.

"Good morning Sirrah", he called out. "Mornin'" replied the rancher. "Where is your Master?" the gentleman inquired.

The rancher squinted at the carriage and said, "That sumbich ain't been born yet."

Current and former U.S. military officials tell me that the U.S. and NATO mission in Afghanistan is almost entirely focused on the re-emergence of al-Qaida and that strikes against Islamic State leaders are scarce.

-----------

On this I disagree. If there is a law that is a violation of the Constitution, then the Court must declare the law "un-Constitutional" as the Constitution is the supreme law of the land. But that does not make the Court's decision the supreme law of the land.

We can at least stop saying a judicial decision is the supreme law of the land - it is not. The Constitution is. Nothing more.

In relation to what it was, prior to a massive infusion of investor cash, yes. When some poor Pine Barren resident goes from selling bloodworms at a rotting pier to flying halfway around the world to spend a couple weeks vacationing with his wife at an exclusive resort, that's bringing prosperity.

My Dad bought a home in the area for less than 10k. At the height of the boom, brought about by investors and jobs, he could have sold for over 300k. To put in today's numbers, multiply by three.

GOPe runs Congress, Trump doesn't

Even if Trump wins, GOPe will still run Congress

Where is Trump saying "Primary Ryan" or "Get rid of McConnell"? At least the Tea Party actually sponsored candidates to get rid of GOPe fossils and enablers.
That is another reason that I don't like him. He is not leading a movement for fundamental change on any level. He is just saying "trust me I'll make everything all right all on my own". But we all know he can't.

1379 See, here we go. You are just rationalizing why we should ignore Trump's major flaws.
---
I didn't do any such thing. Vote for whichever fool suits you.

I'm saying the appeal of Trump in the campaign, the reason people are supporting him, is largely a rejection of DC and the GOPe. To the extent that's true, no policy matters, the only thing that could make him unappealing is cooperation on his part with the uniparty. Anyone who's on that train has already concluded that the promises of republicans don't matter, so worries about actual policy don't apply-we have no influence on that question today in any case.

A second set of people which I assume includes you, is people who still think the promises of republicans are worth something. On that assumption, you can then discuss policies of the other candidates and pick your preference. But those arguments aren't going to be of any great interest to those in the first group because of what we see as a faulty assumption you've made.

On the one policy that matters to Trump supporters, the crackdown on mexicans and mohammadans, none of your guys are credible, where there's an open question of what Trump will do. That makes him the superior, if still lousy, choice.

To answer the rest of your question, no I don't much care what he does in office. Government's choices no longer matter in the macro sense. Nothing will be done to deflate the Fed-GS-JPM-etc bubble, so instead it will burst with whatever consequences that has. Iran will go nuclear, as will multiple Sunni states in response, and shortly after that "stateless terrorists" will start setting off nukes against anyone who upsets them. Russia and China will continue pursuing their interests because A) they want to, B) there's no cost to them for doing so, and C)wars are less costly to them than unrest at home.

So halfway through Triumph of the Will on YouTube. Had never bothered to watch it.

Not a film expert, but I can see how it was fairly sophisticated for its time, as an inspirational documentary.

Interesting, of all the Nazi bigs, only Goebbels had a speaking style/voice that was tolerable. Hitler's a bit screechy, unless he was being sarcastic. Never realized Hess had a high-pitched voice, sounds almost silly when he does his over-the-top intros of the Fuhrer. The others (Ley, Rosenberg, Darre, et al) mostly sound like your typical Kiwanis chairman obligated to do a public talk but really no good at it.

Chilling to think that all the young enthusiastic faces in the massive assemblies would be mostly dead in the next 10 years (film was done at the 1935 party rally in Nuremburg), after the idiots on stage had led them into a helping create a nightmare of evil and destruction.

1390 I'll vote for Trump if it comes to that, and I'll do it enthusiastically, considering what the other option is.

However, in addition to getting immigration under control, I think the rule of law is incredibly important. In fact I think it is the most important thing, and fixing the immigration problem falls under it.

I am not convinced that Trump will view upholding the rule of law as one of his important functions as president. He strikes me as someone who will act to get his own way, without paying too much attention to how it is being done. I'm not saying that he will deliberately set out to define and undermine the rule of law like Obama did. Just that it won't really be on his radar.

Not that I trust any politician, because politician, but Cruz seems to me to be the most likely to try to restore the rule of law. without it, we are no better than third world basket cases.

Canadian-born, Harvard-trained, Goldman Sachs-connected, former Bush official permanent government employee lawyer is too.

1414 1406 If Cruz's wife's no longer with GS, this is a moot point, but if she were there in *any* capacity, if Cruz were President, of course she'd be used as a point of access to Cruz by GS, if there were something they needed that she could facilitate.

That alone should be enough to dissuade anyone from voting for him who's sick of the crony capitalism and MSM/Dem incest.

I am mostly sitting out the Trump Wars, but Methos that was a pretty good taxonomy of many people's perspectives and motivations on the candidates. And your tour d'horizon of policy areas was pretty solid, too.

Anything is possible, but I see little reason for optimism on the big questions, regardless of who's in the Oval. Lawlessness (executive, administrative, judicial) now suffuses the civic culture, and in the fertile environment thereby created, rent-seeking, self-seeking, irresponsibility, and a frightening basic stupidity are romping around. Unlikely that will change substantially.

1425 A lot of people do not like "judicial review" but I don't see judicial review as a problem. With respect to Obamacare, we had all wanted the Court to use its power of "judicial review" which is an implied power under the Supremacy Clause.

The real problem is with substantive due process which is used to find rights never imagined. Of course, thanks to Kennedy, the Court no longer even uses substantive due process to find rights. Now we have some sort of inherent dignity process that certainly is to be found no where in the Constitution.

But judicial review. I'm cool with that - when properly applied.

1454 1390 I'll vote for Trump if it comes to that, and I'll do it enthusiastically, considering what the other option is.

However, in addition to getting immigration under control, I think the rule of law is incredibly important. In fact I think it is the most important thing, and fixing the immigration problem falls under it.

I am not convinced that Trump will view upholding the rule of law as one of his important functions as president. He strikes me as someone who will act to get his own way, without paying too much attention to how it is being done. I'm not saying that he will deliberately set out to define and undermine the rule of law like Obama did. Just that it won't really be on his radar.

Not that I trust any politician, because politician, but Cruz seems to me to be the most likely to try to restore the rule of law. without it, we are no better than third world basket cases.
Posted by: chique testing testing at January 18, 2016 03:56 PM (+wjl1)

---------------------

I think it is just the opposite. Permanent government employees know nothing of the rule of law. Private sector employees in real estate, construction, manufacturing, etc know all about it.

A plant manager once told me, "my #1 job is not to go to jail".

Compare and contrast private sector accounting with public sector accounting.

Sure, judicial review - while questionable in its basis - is not neccessarily a problem.

But when it is used simply to legislate, as it has been for decades (recently acquiring a more farcical and transparen, brazen character), obviously, big problems.

Not that it helps much, probably, but the dark humor of short, illustrative examples is getting better as things get more ridiculous: it's a deep mystery what sort of infringements are allowed on an expressright specified as NOT to be infringed - meanwhile man's oldest institutions need to be redefined by fiatof a half-dozen people in order to pwotect the feeweings of a tiny minority whose case has been rejected by the culture.

1467 However, in addition to getting immigration under control, I think the
rule of law is incredibly important. In fact I think it is the most
important thing, and fixing the immigration problem falls under it.
---
That isn't possible unless folks who abuse the power of their offices go to jail or worse (depending on the circumstance). Plenty of folks want to raise money on the awful behavior of Lois Lerner, but I haven't heard anyone promise a prosecution (and if not her, any of the folks who covered for her). I haven't even heard anyone suggest taking away her pension. Plenty of folks want to raise money on the mess obama's made in the middle east and increasingly here with his open borders, but no one's promising treason trials for everyone involved in those decisions.

My hope, and I'm massively projecting here, is that Trump gets into office, and the bottom falls out of everything. I think this will happen in any case, but what makes him different is the lack of loyalty to anyone in DC, so when the time comes for scapegoating the shit out of the problem, he'll lay waste to the cozy bipartisan crowd that made it all possible. But he's not campaigning on it, and I'm not counting on it.

Yes, unless we gain control of our immigration you will end up with whackos and seized guns anyways because voting won't mean a hill of beans. Look at California. It's wacko land because of uncontrolled immigration. If Trump stops that then everything else can be taken care of.
