Still Winning? (MJ)

Are liberals still wee-weed up and acting the fool over taxes, Big Bird, or microwave spying?

Then yes, still winning.

I'm happy when they are sad; it's a simple political philosophy for those of us who don't really pay attention to the blue check mafia or the whatever those kooky shade throwers are calling it these days. Dig me homes?

Oh, and pssst...Hillary won't ever be President.

27 Apologize!

Pelosi says today that Trump must -- must! -- apologize to His Eminence Obama.

She's not the only one demanding a Trump apology.

Ninth Circuit said that Trump had a Bad Heart and upheld Seattle's knocking down the Old Travel Pause Order. Hawaii judge says the same thing about the New Travel Pause Order, ignoring the changes that were made, because Trump still has a Bad Heart.
So the Hawaii judge addresses, well, what must Trump do to not have a Bad Heart, so that he can do what Congress has already authorized him to do.

Answer is in footnote 17. Translated fro High Legalese, Trump must give a public, heartfelt and abject apology to Muslims everywhere. And bring the judge a shrubbery

I read a few of the comments and it struck me that those people are so angry it is making them insane.
They have no game plan, either, just hate in their hearts.
Were we that pissed off that Obama won? Or were we making plans to take our country back, no matter how long it took?
Seems to me that unless they get past the anger, they will never find their way out of the wilderness.

71 Back during the campaign, Trump was moving the Overton Window on several things, especially Illegal Immigration. No other candidate was moving squat.

During the campaign, Trump also gave fairly detailed lists of what he'd do in office, especially the first 100 days, and he's been moving on all of it, despite having to fight MSM, Obama, Chuck Schumer, the GOPe, and the federal judiciary. Anyone with a working brain should know that Trump's campaign promises were best efforts and that he might not deliver 100% because of the array of forces lined up against him, but if you had any faith in the guy you'd know he'd give it 100%, and he has.

Kimmel was my Leno substitute (yes I knew he was even more lefty then Leno but he still was mostly funny to me until last summer) but he just cannot get past Trump. It is sad, bigly sad.

You know, we had to go over and whup their asses twice, then spent trillions building them back up and protecting them from the wrath of the East, and it's about time to say enough. I say let them fall and the hell with them. They don't know how to be decent members of a civilized society, apparently, so why not let Putin and/or millions of ragheads have their way with them.

186 Hillary was literally the worst candidate I have ever seen in my considerable life span. A voice that sounded like metal scraping on rust. Reminded every man of their ex. Everything she touched turned to crap. No accomplishments whatsoever. Zero. A trail of corpses everywhere she went.
And yet, some thought she should have won.
Unbelievable.

100% agree.

I also think that the many people who work with the "artists" are enablers-- the "artist" doesn't meet a deadline, but their boss is OK with it, because the person is an "artist" and that's "expected." Then as it becomes worse, the boss bitches to his reliable people that the "artist" is hard to work with.

No. Sh*t.

Smaller states get an advantage in the RC, and they're mostly Red. Hillary did many things to run up the vote in Deep Blue States that antagonized swing states.

Because of this my prediction was that Trump would get at least 300 EVs even if he lost the popular vote.. by 2% to 3%.

200 I, too was convinced from the very start that Trump would win, and it was because I read his book Crippled America that outlined his proposed actions. I knew that would resonate with the people, and as anyone who lives outside the Beltway or NYC knows, the American people are still decent and intelligent. I was further convinced when I watched videos of his rallies, where tens of thousands would turn out on short notice and stand in line for hours to hear and applaud him. The mirror held up by the MFM was a false one, not truly reflecting the thoughts, hopes and dreams of we ordinary folk.

There's a guy playing for the Ravens who is working on his PhD in Mathematics. Another Raven is an opera singer. Now that's exception, but if you look into what ex-pro atheletes are doing, you'll find doctors, lawyers and successful businessmen.

255 Roman Polanski?

You are conflating the artist as a person with the production of his art. They are two different things. Polanski is a swine who deserved prison in one of those hard-case places with Bubba as his cellmate. No doubt. But should he make a good film, that is something entirely apart from his personal behavior.

Posted by: Ignoramus at March 19, 2017 07:59 PM (bQxkN)


Pussygate was not to destroy Trump, it was to give the waverers and the voters who liked what he stood for but didn't like a crass business man persona a pretext for voting for someone else.

Unfortunately those someone elses were Hillz, McMuffin, Stein and Johnson.

I really think McMuffin was a put up to suck up Trump defectors in the wake of any and all October surprises. Too bad for his backers he sucked balls.

Sure, but when do you think that is going to happen? There was no Social Security or Medicare/Medicaid when Coolidge was president. Tell me how the country would react if Trump said "We need to get rid of Social Security if we are to regain our independent spirit."

Yeah, that would go over real well.

Trump will have a difficult time just trying to repair some of the damage done by Obama alone, nevermind all the administrations going back to FDR. He'll have to fight members of his own party as well. Coolidge didn't have such problems.

I have to work with a professionally diagnosed Narcissist. He's a photographer. His product is fairly consistent (he's not as good as he thinks he is), and he is demanding, unreliable, cannot meet a deadline if his life depended on it and requires lots of gushing over how wonderful his work is. I choose the photographers for the work I do, and he is always last on my list.

Perhaps if you're layers away from the "artist" and don't have to personally deal with daily tantrums, excuses, meltdowns and the inevitable threats of suicide, they're perfectly OK as part of the team.

The Daily Mail article is pretty misleading about this. Schultz announced in December that he was stepping down, and the anti-Trump stuff (and the pledge to hire 10,000 refugees) came in January.

Politely disagree. This was planned for among MSM and Hillaryland, who did a set-up during one of the debates. They pressed for Republicans to drop support for Trump ... in October. Cocksuckers like Scarborough called for Trump to drop out of the race.

They never thought Trump could survive and thought Hillary only needed to step over Trump's smoldering corpse and walk into the White House. Which is why Hillary and the Mooks got lazy in October.

Trump survived because we already knew he had been a pussyhound. So he kept Evangelical support but lost some with suburban women, but not enough to make that much difference.

I am now his great friend and mentor, and it's almost more than I can stand to cater to his enormous ego.

"We have one of those in Target, too. (And one in Kroger.) Seems like
it's just a matter of time before they start putting cupholders in the
shopping carts."

"already have them at Albertson's (Montana)"

Have the StarHuckster and cupholders at Albertson's and Fred Meyer (local Kroger buyout) in Idaho.

Don't drink coffee and I think I've had a StarHuck's cocoa maybe twice in my life...

367 I got a kick out of this this morning. It's a story about wrestling and Twitter, which probably doesn't sound promising. But that part is kind of irrelevant. It's really just a story about a competitive kid savoring his revenge:

All-time great H.S. wrestler Mark Hall gets whipped in one of his first college matches, back in January.

Two-time defending NCAA champion Isaiah Martinez tweets about it: "I've always said it, college wrestling is a different game." Hall bites his tongue.

In spite of that early loss, Hall ends up winning a national title. (This was last night. It happened to be immediately after Martinez lost his own national final match.)

And then Hall finally replies to the tweet from January: "Wrestling is wrestling, buddy."

A Note About Our Coverage Of Donald Trump's 'Campaign'

After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won't report on Trump's campaign as part of The Huffington Post's political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump's campaign is a sideshow. We won't take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you'll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.

LOL. When did Trump announce his candidacy, by the way? I didn't take him seriously at first, but I sat up and took notice when he went to the Iowa State Fair and gave children rides in his private helicopter.

A number of candidates were there to see and be seen, and he promptly sucked all the air out of the room with that little stunt. I thought, "Wow, he's good at this."

Trump started this at CPAC in 2013, and I remember watching it on CSPAN. At first, the audience there did not know what to make of him and what he was talking about. But they eventually warmed up to his stream-of-consciousness populist talk.

I think even then, he was thinking about it. He didn't like Obama (Obama made fun of him) and could see how bad the economy was at the grass roots level, how stagnant it was.

I remember watching one of his rallies in 2015 with my then-wife, and her remark was that she sure hoped that he would repeal Obamacare, as he talked about then.
