6 The Calpers story is really under-reported. They admit to $175 billion in the hole, but try to imagine if the state were required to live up to financial reporting rules imposed of private business. One trillion in the red is not out of the question.

11 Good morning all.

From this week in 1944 - Anzio, Italy

21 - 26 Mar 1944 - The EZ Dog Journal
Five days in a row with nothing exciting enough to even write about. Weather fair - occasional light showers. A liberal sprinkling of 170's is connected with the atmosphere. Had one land fairly close - a few fragments lit around, but nothing very scary. Some indication that Gerry has something "in the air", though nothing definite yet.
Had my first "Cub" ride along the front the 25th. Very quiet. A 155 shell came buzzing very close to the plane to add to the interest.




More about the observation plane in the coming weeks.

14 Mexico is mounting an unprecedented effort to turn its permanent residents in the U.S. into citizens, a status that would enable them to vote -- presumably against Donald Trump.

Officially, Mexico says it respects U.S. sovereignty and has no strategy to influence the result of the presidential race. Yet Mexican diplomats are mobilizing for the first time to assist immigrants in gaining U.S. citizenship, hosting free workshops on naturalization.

15 So I kind of got into it with stupid aggressively gay acquaintance over the weekend.

He was trying to be all philosophical and shit, saying "it's funny how life comes full circle - I hated the Electoral College, but now it's going to save us from ourselves."

I couldn't deal with it. I said "No, that makes you a hypocrite."

It went downhill, with him talking about Trump's "ugliness" and "racism" and all manner of shit. I'm no Trumpista, but I kept asking for examples and all I heard was how he called all Mexicans rapists and he's buying the election.

I guess supporting candidates that call all male college students rapists is peachy, plus I'm laughing as if the DNC never tried to "buy" an election.

I gotta switch to Sanka.

Hosting a Super Bowl isn't the economic stimulus the NFL like to pretend it is.

Someone asked where we were going, and I told them Dauphin Island. There was a reply about the USS Alabama, docked in Mobile Bay. We worked a day trip in on our return drive, and it was truly incredible. Toured the restored battleship, and as a bonus, toured the USS Drum, a WWII era submarine, also restored. There were volunteer docents all over both ships, and they added a ton of depth to the tour. Amazing what America is (was?) capable of.

87 On that HA Link about GA's religious liberty law...

I'm not surprised that someone at HA is a little bit timid about supporting such a thing. I would make two notes, however:

1- The very fact that businesses, including the NFL, are threatening Georgia is evidence that this law must be passed and vigorously defended. The People of Georgia (as represented by their legislature and Governor) do not answer to the NFL.

2- The part where the author claimed that a religious organization being able to fire someone who does not share their beliefs (rough quote) "goes beyond defending your religious liberty and into discriminating against someone else's" is just stupid.

As an employer, I do not owe anyone employment. If one of my criteria for hiring/retaining an employee is that they are of the same religion as I, that's my business. Your "religious liberty" does not, in fact, include any "right to be employed."

I'm going from memory, but I seem to recall a case or at least a legal tenet that supported hiring discrimination based on race, in the context of a non-Chinese person applying for a job at a Chinese restaurant. Hard for me to see much difference between that and refusing to, say, hire an atheist church official.

What I don't like is his insistence that something devious is occurring if they just don't give it to him by virtue of him having the most delegates regardless of how close he is to the required number .

Just another case where he sounds ignorant of history and acts like a liberal.

252 Apparently battleship docents are a class unto themselves ("soo-ee Je-naris").
I was aboard Missouri at Christmastime, and they couldn't do enough for you. Except for the most crowded days, there's no need to pay for the special guided tour, as you'll get one anyway if you exhibit the least special interest in any one aspect. And they're whip-smart, too, a nice mixture of mil-history academics and real salty sailors. Eager to please and show off the boat.

Only complaint, to get to the engine room you have to pre-arrange, certain dates only, hefty extra fee. Understandable security precaution, though: can't have just anybody touching off numbers one through four and making ready for sea (happens in every movie).

Thing of the day to see was, Japanese-speaking docent with a small group of suitably serious and reverent Japanese tourists, doing a longish lecture immediately adjacent to The Surrender. You always hear about scads of them grinning and doing selfies on the Arizona bridge. This did not look like that at all.

256 Who wants a brochure of overpriced cigars and cheap prostitutes? From the chatter from Canadian and European men, that seems to be their biggest draw.

Don't know about the hooker part, but Cuban cigars simply aren't worth it. Last one I had, a Cohiba Esplendido up in Toronto (and yes, it was real...) was just not as enjoyable as the La Aurora Preferidos that are in my humidor.

What was the script, five pages?

It was perhaps the most *stupid* film I've seen all year. Impressive cinematography for an idiotic script.

Of course, Di Caprio being a "man of conscience," there was the gratuitous shot at Texas.

262 Apparently, the "in" thing now is "Modern Depression".
Depression used to be for those in their 50's but now with "Modern Depression", those in their 20's can be depressed now too.

The symptoms of "modern Depression":
1) can't go to work
2) able to go drinking with your friends

Now, I know what you're thinking, but apparently "Modern Depression" isn't for the lazy. In an extensive clinical study out of Japan, it was determined that 20-somethings just don't take criticism well, especially from their bosses. After a few weeks of unwelcome criticism, they become depressed.

The way I figure it, any form of mental illness, the drive to get it out there in the public eye has one of two purposes: some new drug on the market (legal or otherwise) needs a client base. Or, some new employment benefit/disability needs to be defined/funded/supported by people who actually, you know, work.

Hours before President Barack Obama landed in Havana to meet with high-ranking members of the island's repressive communist regime, more than 50 pro-democracy dissidents were beaten and arrested, shoved into buses to be shipped into the nation's jails to prevent them from disturbing official activities.

At least 50 of those arrested are members of the Ladies in White, a mostly-Catholic dissident group comprised of the wives, daughters, mothers, and sisters of prisoners of conscience....

323 Lots of Cuba myths being peddled by the MSM these days. Myth #1: the U.S. embargo impoverished Cuba. Fact: while the U.S. has boycotted Cuba, almost no one else has. Cuba is impoverished because it is a Communistic slave state that no longer benefits from massive Soviet subsidiaries to maintain a public facade of socialist success.

Posted by: Citizen Cake at March 21, 2016 09:11 AM (ppaKI)

Correct. In fact, the US was the ONLY country to maintain a trade embargo on Cuba. Hence Cuba could trade with literally anyone else on Earth, but it made no difference. Without those subsidies from the now-defunct USSR, Cuba, being your typical Stalinist state was nothing to write home about at the best of times, rapidly devolved into your typical Third World shithole.

What they have been wanting all along, and will now get thanks to the Obambi, is that big influx of cash from us in the form of "foreign aid", so as to prop themselves (Raoul, Fidel, or whatever Commie douchebag is running things over there now) up for a little longer...

325 Survivalist note (this will show up on that post-series, I'm sure): Kentucky burley is fairly easy to start and grow compared to other tobacco, bears hugely, is really pretty and smells good growing in the garden, and is good for the tomatoes. One of the few leaves you can just line-dry and crumble up into good pipe tobacco. Making the mixture and grind for cigareet rolling tabac is an incredible PITA, so pipes are going to be very popular on the New Frontier.

Sure a cigar is in theory just one rolled leaf, but, as noted above, short of virgins.

You laugh, but this is a legitimate reaction to having all responsibility removed from your life.

The antidote is to give individuals more responsibility, not less. The human spirit, and the American spirit, is resilient enough to handle it.

When you castigate millenials you are playing right into the left's hands by buying their argument that they're too weak to shoulder the load required to run a free and open society.

Is that a fact? Because as far as I can make out we don't live in one. We have de facto 50% taxation, a shit job market, QE, a predatory education system, and have become a renter's society instead of an owner's society.

People in their late 20s and early 30s aren't having kids for financial reasons. The game has been rigged by the left.

A friend of mine is a service member and is going to grad school in DC starting next year. After some research they're looking to buy a small lot and build one of those prefab homes on it. It makes sense by the numbers, it's hundreds of thousands of dollars cheaper than buying a real house. But this is an intelligent, highly motivated soldier who's gonna be living in a fucking house made of shipping containers instead of a home. This generation has been priced out of the lifestyle they grew up with.

If Trump is getting smoked by Hillary, yet Cruz can't beat Trump, how does Cruz beat her? Go ahead, square that circle.
We'll wait.

Posted by: rickb223 at March 21, 2016 09:36 AM (LtRrq)

You won't wait long. At 40-45%, Trump supporters are a minority in the GOP, which makes them (you) a small but significantminority in the party as a whole. Cruz, on the other hand,consistently beats Hillary in head-to-head matchups. The reason why your guy does so well in the primaries is because his many competitors have been going after each other since they're seeking the same voter base, the not-Trump voters.

Right now, for example, Kasich is bleeding votes from Cruz, not Trump. You know this. Don't know why you're saying it's squaring the circle since the rationale is straightforward enough.

As an aside, I won't berubbing it in and saying 'I told you so' if your guy wins the nomination and then loses to Hillary in the general election. A Clinton presidency would be/will be a disaster for the country from which there's no going back. A Trump presidency, no matter how incompetent and ridiculous, would be endurable.

So tell me, Trump supporters, how's Beloved Dear Leader's take on Cuban reparations sitting with you? ThinkTrump can get a good deal with the Castro Brothers, maybe set us up with a payment plan?

386 > I'm a Cruz supporter. I find a Trump/Cruz ticket hard to imagine. Cruz is a conservative. ... btw, how are you Trump supporters spinning the latest numbers showing Trump getting smoked by Hillary in Utah, arguably the most loyally Republican state in the Union? I can't imagine how you rationalize that one.

This is a telling response. It reveals how out of touch Cruz supporters are. Not just regarding Cruz or Trump, but the pulse of our highly diverse country and what the base looks like.

It's very simple, and there is no spin here, Cruz is not a conservative, he's a zealot. He is not someone most of the people around here would identify with at all. And as a Mormon, born and raised in the LDS church, served a mission, the whole 9 yards, I know a thing or two about Utah and mormon culture. Mormons ARE NOT conservatives as is conventionally thought. They are tribal voters that tend to go with whatever the church tells them to do. They are also emotional thinkers, voting with their hearts rather than their minds.

Who is the most prominent mormon in elected office? Harry Reid. Who was the first bonafide american socialist? Joseph Smith, the mormon prophet, founder of the mormon religion and church. He founded a no-joke socialist government in Nauvoo IL back in the early to mid 19th century. They even had their own militia which at the time was 1/3 the size of the US army. At the time of Joseph Smith's death he was actively running for POTUS. And why did Joseph Smith die? Because in a very authoritarian/theocratic kind of way he ordered that a local printing press be destroyed because he didn't like what it was saying about him.

Currently within the LDS church there is a strange dynamic. It's a mix of very right-wing and very left-wing people. BYU did a poll recently and Bernie won. The current mayor of Salt Lake City is a lesbian. There are huge feminist and liberal undercurrents within the church. A lot of issues with the gays. The right wingers like Cruz because he's openly pious and steadfastly homophobic. You've got Glenn Beck running around saying Cruz is the fulfillment of end times prophecies and talking about kids fasting for Cruz.

And they hate Trump for superficial reasons, like appearing on the cover of a playboy. Mormon culture is kind of a ninny culture. There is a phrase called "peter priesthood." Other phrases like "primary voice." Watch a LDS general conference, you've never seen so many crying men in your life. Modern LDS church produces a very femmy "soft" male culture. Go visit BYU, it's a campus of pussies. It ranks highly on lists of the gayest campuses.

Mitt Romney is a good caricature of a mormon man. Plastic. Self righteous. Soft. Who are other notable products of mormon culture in politics? You've got Reid, Hatch, Huntsman. Yes, and also some good ones like Lee, who's a real exception. Most of the LDS politicians are an embarrassment.

Go take a stroll through mormon blogs and see the sissy on full display. Here's a list of some of the most popular mormon blogs.

bycommonconsent.com
rationalfaiths.com
feministmormonhousewives.org
lds.net
mormonstories.org

oh, you want something that is more representative of the extreme right wingers? ok, take a stroll over to ldsfreedomforum.com, a hotbed of 911 truthers. Stephen Jones that BYU professor that supported 911 truth hangs out there. these people think the apocalypse is around the corner.

So, there is your answer, it's very simple, Utards are CRAZY!!!! There are some seriously crazy fucking people in UT. Thank UT for the recent supreme court decision imposing gay marriage on the nation. If those assholes hadn't stirred a hornets nest with prop8 and all the crazy anti-gay measures they were taking, none of it would have ever happened. Mormons truly couldn't leave the gays alone. They passed insane laws making it legal and encouraging open discrimination against them, kicking them out of housing, etc. Subjecting gay youth within the mormon community to electroshock therapy and the like. Nutty nutty nutty stuff that rightly enraged the gay community and turned it into a big fight. Gays didn't give a shit about marriage, it simply became a means to an end - getting crazy people like those in UT to just leave them the fuck alone for once. Mormons gave us this supreme court decision.

BTW, there are some sane mormons too. Like Robert C Oaks, retired USAF general, former general authority within the LDS church, who has endorsed Trump.

Most think of socialism as a big warm govt hug, instead of the mass starvation, political imprisonment and firing squads that it usually becomes.

Posted by: Make America Great Again at March 21, 2016 10:16 AM (LXJ1e)


Having "millenials" fix things is the only way out. Deregulate, lower taxes, slash spending, and let people start their own businesses without permits, licenses, training, healthcare costs etc etc.

"Millenials" is a pejorative for "everybody born after 1985."

If you believe in capitalism and limited government, you want the state out of the way so people can live their lives. Well those are the people who will be doing the living (and the building, inventing, selling, buying).

It's not hyperbole, Seamus. The only way to get the milquetoast mamas boy to stop being a milquetoast mamas boy is to stop treating him that way.

Should also be noted that Trump once publicly (and approvingly) remarked on Epstein's penchant for young 'women'. Do you suppose Trump suspected how young they really were? Do you suppose he'd care if he did? More importantly, would you Trump supporters care if Trump knew Epstein pimped children and did nothing?

When conducted by reputable firms, pollstend grow more accurate as candidates drop out and the race tightens. Fewer undecideds, fewer variables.

Insofar as the GOP nomination goes, if both Trump and Cruz come to the convention with less than the requisite number of committed delegates (1237), all bets are off. I don't think there's a poll in the world which can accurately predict which way suddenly uncommitted delegates are going to go on a second or a third ballot.

These 20-somethings are virtual debt slaves to their student loans but yet remain profoundly uneducated. They have been fully immersed in the dominant secular, progressive, participation trophy culture their entire lives and most cannot function in an environment which requires critical thinking and perseverance. As a result of their choices they will be the first generation in a long time not to enjoy a standard of living equal or better than those before them. If by some miracle most the them finally figure out what is wrong and seek to correct it it will already be too late. The "regulatory capture" of their generation is complete.

Better to focus attention on those even younger to try and make sure they do not replicate such mistakes.

526 499-And Kasich wants to let them all in. This is why Trump is resonating with people. I may not like him personally, but I am sick and tired of non-citizens being treated better than citizens by our government. I am tired of Foreign officials (and I count the Pope in this designation as well) telling me I need to provide more and more of the rest of the world, while they are corrupt and graft-hungry.

The Republicans have refused to embrace the borders/citizen debate, because they stupidly think they can convince these people that working is better than free shit. And in the case of Kasich and Rubio, they have stated that these people are welcome, and can have free shit on my dime. That's what makes me frustrated with the establishment of both parties. Especially knowing how long it takes people to come here legally. They should get the priority, for doing it the right way. Yet they are punished.

I think you are far overestimating Trump's appeal. He happens to be the right vessel at the right time, a time of inarticulate rage at the status quo.

4 years ago this site was all about conservative purity. Hardly anyone gives a crap about that now. Now it's all about settling scores. That's what Trump is good for.

How that plays in the general is anyone's guess. There has never been a policy free candidate in my lifetime so trying to make a prediction between someone with no core and an unindicted felon is a roll of the dice.

"If you see a bully stand up to him..." (cough, cough......)

What happened to using "she" or "her" when referring to a general unidentified person? You know, for example "When a student enters medical scroll, she should be prepared to work hard". It is almost a hate crime to use "he" in that sentence. I suppose the new grammatical rule is if use the feminine pronoun if there is a positive or neutral idea expressed the sentence. Use the masculine if there is a negative one.

I happen to think that viewing "act in your own self-interest by making good deals" as a lack of ideals, or a lack of policy, because it doesn't fall on the left-right spectrum is closer to having "no core" than being a prole on partisan issues. Thinking "I just want to get stuff done that's good" regardless of political ideology IS a political ideology.

Trump will go in trying to "make a good deal" and give us a 50-50 or 60-40 split on conservative issues simply by showing up and asking for something.

And that's better than what our "pure" conservatives have done for us.

One of the interesting things coming out of this Political storm... is the fact that the 'old' bipolar labels of 'conservative' vs 'Liberal', which were ALWAYS an oversimplification, are being destroyed.

One of the more interesting new labels to come out is Cosmopolitan. Its defined as those who don't really believe in borders... the one worlders... the World Citizens...

Its those who have diluted the meaning of what a citizen is...

But its also those on the Right, who are for allowing Industries and companies to migrate, and total Free Trade... (the type of thing that results in the Saudi National Oil Company now owning the largest oil refinery in the US).

Trump may offend GOP Establishment sensibilities because he's so boorish and crass, but--should Trump somehow win the presidency--I think Establishment types will get along with him just fine.During the later debates, just prior to Rubio dropping out, Trumpeven agreed that Rubio's incremental amnesty position on immigration was a good starting point, a statement which puts him in exactalignment with the GOPe on the issue of most concern to them.

And why would Trump say such a thing, which is seemingly a repudiation of his whole, supposedly strong anti-illegal immigration position?Because you Trump supporters don't care about issues or policies or principles; otherwise, you'd find a demagogue--one with hair--who at least pretended to believe in conservative ideals..

He's been a businessman. You don't like that he's a reality TV star as well, you might not get the state of our society and economy. He's running as a pragmatic businessman and reaching out to the right.

The important thing isn't him or his candidacy, it's the public's reaction to an unapologetically conservative candidate. It's positive. It is just as important for the electorate to realize it wants and is allowed to want borders and prosperity as it is for the candidate to be Mr Perfect.

For the hundred billionth time: you don't believe he's a conservative. But that's how he's running. And he has pushed the entire republican party to the right on immigration and trade and cornered the nomination.

You aren't citing results of anything other than elections.

Just because you are a youngster doesn't mean the rest of us only became politically aware in the last couple years.

So what he's a businessman? So am I. So are lots of people. That doesn't mean we have to espouse liberal ideas. Being a businessman is not an excuse for spending your entire life on one side of the political aisle only to flip to the other when it is politically convenient.

What is conservatism?
Or is it one of those things that you know when you see it?


I thought you'd never ax.

Conservatism is the adherence to certain principles of governance unique to America. Primary among them is the idea that there should be a limit to governmental involvement in everyday life and that everyone is equal before the law and that laws make sense. (In the case of "global climate change," many of the laws and regulations today have no basis in reality. At. All.)

No group should be elevated above others and government should not favor one group over another through laws or regulations.

Finally, government should uphold the morals of the people. We are a Christian nation and our laws were once based upon the Ten Commandments.

What it boils down to is freedom: you either have it or you don't. The socialist nation we've been fundamentally transformed into radically over these past seven years is so far removed from what the Founders established as to be unrecognizable to many of us.

Conservatives believe in individual freedom and want merely to be left alone in a free society to build the best life possible for themselves and their family in peace. Many powerful forces are aligned to make that an impossibility. These anti-people want us all to have less while they have more.

This only scratches the surface of conservatism.

Posted by: BackwardsBoy at March 21, 2016 11:35 AM (LUgeY)

655 Maybe it is just me, but I do not see much difference between Clinton, Trump and Sanders. They are all old and pretty much fixed in their ideas and methods. Using strictly utilitarian 'who would run the government' Clinton has the most experience, like the early primaries where GOP wanted governors who had experience. The fact that she is a lying greedy dirtbag is irrelevant. Sanders is an idiot who has not moved beyond facile college communism. Trump is an old man full of sound and fury signifying nothing.

A vote for any of the three is a vote for continuing the same old politics and insider practices -- maybe with a gloss of reality-show voyeurism.

In retrospect, it looks like a beautiful piece of strategy. On the ground, all improvised, scared shitless, every tank (looked like) a Tiger, and a god damned miracle anybody survived. Like most war. Spoiler: good guys won.

Biggest survivors' impression: surprise attack my ass. German center was preceded by largest artillery barrage of WWII, you could probably hear it from England, and although we did not know how short of fuel they were, it was obvious the Germans were out of grease. You could hear their armor moving from 10 miles away. One of those sounds, like hobnails on cobblestones, buzz bombs, and screamin meemies, not likely to ever be heard again, but if you heard it once, you never forget.

You're implicitly stating that since Trump is beating Cruz in delegate count right now then both should lose to Hillary--not just Trump--because Trump beats Cruz and Hillary beats Trump.Trump vs Hillary and Cruz vs Hillary are two distinct hypotheticalevents. Claiming these two events should have identical results is invalid because these two events are not identical.

While I haven't done a deep dive in polling results, I can guess Trump does worse than Cruzin a hypotheticalHillary matchup because Trump does worse than Cruz with women voters, which is THE most crucial demographic for any candidate anywhere.

And his answer is, the GOPe hates Cruz, too, just like they hate the Tea Party. They're spitting on people who want to support them and then they wonder why Trump is getting support.

Where are these magical voters coming from? Mexico? Honduras? They're not here yet, correct? Posted by: rickb223 at March 21, 2016 11:43 AM (LtRrq)

The primaries aren't over yet, Rick. RealClearPolitics has Trump is at 678 and Cruz 423. Rubio had 164. Kasich has 123. If Rubio voters move to Cruz in the remaining primaries, then Cruz has a slight but real chance to win, and has a very good chance at denying Trump the requisite 1237 it takes to win the nomination outright, possibly forcing a contested convention.

It isn't that your Beloved Dear Leader is so incredibly popular. It's that--until recently--his opposition has been so fragmented. Things are different now that not-Trump voters are coalescing around Cruz.

722 "Trump does worse than Cruz with women voters, which is THE most crucial demographic for any candidate anywhere."

He does now but were Cruz to get the nomination that would change, especially because of abortion.

"Women voters" is too big a demographic to be meaningful. e.g. look at College Single No Kids; No-college Single with Kids; Blue Collar married with Kids

And you need to look state-by-state. The women who hate Trump are disproportionately in states that are already Deep Blue. So Trump will lose MA by 5% more than Romney did -- who cares.

Question is whether or not Trump can shift the demographics enough to win states like FL and OH.

OK, maybe this would be a better analogy as a definition of conservatism:

I want my government to operate like my home.

I have a front door for a reason: I only invite in those whom I'm reasonably certain won't rob me or cause harm to me or my family.

I don't spend more money than I bring in.

I expect everyone to be respectful (if not happy and joyful) at all times.

If there is anything happening in my home that you don't approve of, you're free to leave.

I comport myself with honor (as much as a Moron can, that is) and honesty.

What I see happening in DC is pretty much the opposite of all that, and no, I don't like it. We didn't used to be this way.

Posted by: IC at March 21, 2016 12:13 PM (a0IVu)

765 There is another thing that most people don't know about these 'protestors' who get arrested.

It's a misdemeanor offense. The protest organizers have lawyers who will represent anyone arrested. They make a deal with the prosecutor for a reduced sentence. The protest organizer pays the fine, pays the lawyer (or the lawyer accumulates 'favors' to be repaid at a later date, i.e. employment), and all the protester has to do is not be arrested again for a probationary period. After that period (six months or a year) the arrest record is expunged.

In other words, the professional protestor suffers no consequence, and is well protected by the organizer. These professional protesters are trained, and well practiced.

The prosecutor doesn't want the expense or the waste of time over a misdemeanor. The local government doesn't want the expense of incarceration. They think the sensation of having those handcuffs on your wrists and the ride to the local jail, and the booking process is enough to intimidate the professional protester who is laughing all the way through the thing, or screaming at the officers just to be a nuisance. The professional protester is a true believer, and being arrested is proof that he is being abused by the oppressive police state who is violating his constitutional rights of free speech. All of the professional protester's paranoia is validated by the arrest, and he becomes even more convinced that his cause is righteous and just.

In other words, we're losing this battle.

It's like the Robert Bork nomination never happened.

I don't trust the Republicans to attempt to confirm any truly conservative justice. I expect that if there is someone nominated (by anyone - Cruz, Trump, or even Hilary for whatever reason) who is a strict constructionist/intentionalist, then the Left will suddenly re-discover the fact that the Senate is a co-equal branch of government, and isn't actually required to confirm anyone. And I expect the Republicans in the senate to capitulate. Again.

In some ways, it's this "strange new respect" for the Separation of Powers which will come if any Republican (Trump, Cruz, or even Kasich) is elected that makes me quite sanguine about the ascendancy of Donald Trump - the MFM and Senate won't give him the same blank check that they've written for TFG for the last 8 years. If he tries anything along the lines of DREAM by fiat, or giving unlawful orders to the military, or any such thing, you'll be amazed at how fast a President can be impeached.

Trump can do this. Cruz can try but won't be effective.


I doubt Cruz would even try. He lost my support when he blamed Trump for the unrest at his rallies instead of the protesters and their enablers such as MoveOn/Soros.

Trump talked about that yesterday with George Snuffleupagus, axing why the double standard?

786 In some ways, it's this "strange new respect" for the Separation of
Powers which will come if any Republican (Trump, Cruz, or even Kasich)
is elected that makes me quite sanguine about the ascendancy of Donald
Trump


Well let's see. I suppose there are two hypotheses on why Congress has been unable to substantially stop Obama's plans:

1. Congress has the power, but they choose not to use it because they secretly agree with Obama on everything and/or are full of spineless weasels.

2. Congress has lost a considerable amount of power over the years due to delegation to the executive branch and the general growth of executive power in general, and therefore aren't really able to stop much of what Obama wants to do.

So if we elect a Constitution-shredding executive-loving Trump, and Hypothesis #1 is true, then Congress might suddenly grow a spine and restrain his worse impulses. But if Hypothesis #2 is true, then we're all boned.

How much do you want to believe that #1 is true and #2 is not true?

3) The Establishment representatives of both parties hate Trump enough that they'll move jointly to block him.

Which is more-or-less what I believe. What prevents Congress, today, from blocking the President is that they are not unified in an attempt to do so. Remember that you need super-majorities.

We can discuss the ridiculousness of the... that phrase I can't use because AtC will hurt me... all we want, but there is no "growth of executive power in general" other than what Congresses has ceded and could reclaim if they chose. The President's powers are designed such that, in a divided Congress, he has considerable "flexibility" within such powers as he already has. And, yes, Congress has ceded much of its authority to the office of the President at the present moment.

But get Donald Trump in the White House, and I think you'll see that change. He really will be a unifier: no more "Democrat v Republican" it'll be "Congress v the President." And the Constitution is written so that Congress generally gets to win.

846 3) The Establishment representatives of both parties hate Trump enough that they'll move jointly to block him.


No, they hate Cruz. They can make deals with Trump, because Trump is completely flexible and has absolutely zero convictions corresponding to his "bottom line" position beyond which he won't negotiate. Trump will demand that people from "his party" had better fall in line and vote for his "new brand of Republicanism", and he will do so in the time-honored way of proposing extravagant spending that Congresscritters can't refuse. Which he will justify as "make America great again" infrastructure stimulus plans.

If Congress was full of a bunch of rigid ideologues that are horrified at Trump, they would have shown evidence of such an ideological position by now, but they haven't.

but there is no "growth of executive power in general" other than what Congresses has ceded and could reclaim if they chose.

They could, but the barriers to doing so remain high. Such as the effective supermajority requirement in the Senate that you point out. So effectively they have ceded power on a more-or-less permanent basis to the executive branch.

no more "Democrat v Republican" it'll be "Congress v the President."
And the Constitution is written so that Congress generally gets to win.


I think that is wishful thinking at best, in two ways:

1. The incentives are for Republicans to get in line behind a Republican president because that leads to greater chances of electoral victory in offyear elections.

2. As we have seen, the only Congressional power that they really have left is the power of the purse. And that can be subverted with these mega-omnibus last minute spending bills. If Trump proposes these massive "make America great again" spending plans, which I think he will, where would Congress find the will to resist such things?

847 I can understand somebody making the electability argument with a candidate like Rubio (who left) and Kasich (even though I have major issues with them) but the electability argument with Ted Cruz makes very little sense.

Ted Cruz's campaign would be like a somebody at Hillsdale College running for President of the College Republicans, and then throw in some SoCon weirdness. He just assumes there's this natural conservative, Evangelical super majority in America.

That might be Texas, but it's not America, unfortunately. I could see him shrinking the map from Romney in 2012.

854 768-AllenG, I haven't seen your nic in a while. How are you doing?

Not too bad. Work is kicking my nether-regions - which is part of why I haven't been here that much.

In point of fact, I'm only online now because I somehow managed to score a lunch where I don't have work to be doing while eating.

855 So, that asshole Kim shot 3 missiles in the general direction of the Stennis Carrier Group. He knows the do-nothing Obama probably won't even squawk.

I've got a grandson on the Stennis so I'm watching.

856 And you really think those numbers would hold up through a campaign?

Does anyone really believe Katshit beats Hillary by 7 points? That's like a near landslide. He looks "good" right now because everyone is ignoring him.

I've also seen polls where Bernie Sanders beats Ted Cruz by 17 points. Does anyone really think that's how that election would turn out?

When you see one set of polling that
"everyone" knows is nonsense, you can't really cherry pick from that same data to make some point about electability.

858 Mero, GoK is making fun of cucumbah who said he wasn't sure Cruz could beat Trump even in Texas.

859 Trump dares to mention that we shouldn't be letting the rest of the
world walk right in and do as they please and just look at the shitstorm
that's been unleashed against him.


Do you *honestly* believe that even the major reason so many people on the right are upset with Donald is because he proposed building a wall? Really? Building the border wall has been a part of Republican platforms for at least 10 years now. It's not exactly a new idea. Hell, I'm in favor of the wall, and I'm not exactly a friend of Donald. People are pissed off at Donald because he is an unconservative boorish authoritarian lout, who is ideologically *barely* to the right of Hillary, who has no principles or convictions, who is a con man selling a swindle.

861 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin furiously typing inane comments with a fevered vomitous intensity reminiscent of the deranged denizens of a cholera isolation ward at an asylum for the criminally insane.

Idk Mero, I don't think Cruz stands a chance in Oklahoma or Kansas.

863 More than 40 millionaires, including members of the Rockefeller and Disney families, are asking to have their taxes raised to help address poverty and rebuild failing infrastructure.

Feel free to write a check and send it in, geniuses.

Funny thing - we have an optional check-off box on our tax forms here in the People's Republic of Massachusetts that allows all those patriotic liberals to be taxed at a 5.85% rate rather than the 5.15% rate the voters approved (the voters actually approved a 5% rate, but the legislature has been ramping it down from 5.3% since it was passed in 2000).

How much did that bring in to Mass.GOV last year? About $250K from 1,083 people in 2013 - or roughly .0000008% of the $32B budget for that year.

Liberals are really generous with everyone else's money but tend to throw their own nickles around like they're manhole covers.

865 I recall how in 2012 many of you thought the election was a slam dunk for Romney despite what the polls say. Once again you think 2016 will be an easy for Trump despite what the polls say. If he loses, will any of you reconsider your political observations?

866 "hypotheses on why Congress has been unable to substantially stop Obama's plans"

A lot of it is Obama specific. Congressional R leaders are afraid to use the power of the purse because they think they'll get blamed for any gov't shutdown and, worse still, a Federal default, which is dangerous uncharted territory. Obama has proven crazy idealogical enough to create a default and has MSM on his side.

Add to that, there are enough Rs who are happy to have the pig trough get filled as long as they get a share.

Re the many scandals, there should have been special prosecutors but there weren't because MSM didn't demand it. You'll see the MSM double standard in the next R administration. We have a politicized DOJ and Congress is ineffective at investigations. Compare the Gowdy Commission to Judicial Watch on Hillary's e-mails.

867 Minor correction in @863...

Income tax rate in 2000 was 5.85%, not 5.3%

869 All in all, it's hard for me to not conclude that I have basically wasted my life in being associated with the United States military. Because I have.

Lots of potential, still zip to show for it, and now not enough experience to ever really make up the gap. A complete and total waste of a life, perpetually stuck in second gear.

Leadership in the United States military is a myth.
