Republicans for the Rule of Law — an initiative spearheaded by a cadre of GOP politicos and conservative commentators — kicked off its campaign to defend special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into Russia’s 2016 election meddling and its alleged ties to Trump’s campaign with a television ad that aired on “Fox and Friends” ...
No doubt that caused a bit of indigestion ...
Well, if we want to have a clear picture of all the issues, you'd be hard pressed to find a better place to start. Week 2 especially interests me. I've read most of these over time, but could sure use refreshing the old grey matter with this particular focus in mind.
Bookmark this one. You'll need it when the next mass shooting happens (and I'm terribly sad to have to say that).
Because the biggest savings associated with single-payer come from reduced payments to service providers, the switch would require American doctors and administrators to work for significantly less than they currently earn. But how painful would those sacrifices be?
Many I know went into healthcare to help people, not necessarily to feather their nests. If the overall emphasis changes from the current model, would not the former make for better healthcare? I constantly hear physicians complaining about how things are currently, the lack of time to diagnose patients properly, the excessive electronic records documentation to collect insurance billings, etc. It points strongly (to me) that they'd like to simply do their jobs and return to their domiciles at the end of a workday with feelings of accomplishment.
They said Trump was 'over', multiple times, going way back. I think a more historical view than the current reactionary one (that attracts clicks), is a better way to view all this.
Or am I the only one imagining some sanctimonious Presidential run by Ryan, offering to 'restore the soul of the Republican Party'? Those dewy eyes, appealing to red-state voters ... ? The lonely widows chucking their retirement leavings at him, much as men do at strip clubs?
The Kochs and dozens of other free-market folks were invested in Paul Ryan’s future. Those investments were squandered like Granny’s Social Security check at the Trump Taj Mahal.
And that makes me so happy. Yet I smell a Presidential feint in his future. Man the barf bags.
Fake celltowers, everywhere in Washington D.C.! Heaven forfend, they might have to talk face-to-face! I suspect this one may end up being more complex to permanently fix than these initial news reports.
After five years of research and the publication of The One Percent Solution, Lafer concluded that by lobbying to make changes like increasing class sizes, pushing for online instruction, lowering accreditation requirements for teachers, replacing public schools with privately-run charters, getting rid of publicly elected school boards and a host of other tactics, Big Business was aiming to dismantle public education.
Bear with me on this one; I know that title's twitching the 'sensationalism meter.' Read about his theories (remember they are such). The concept of most college-educated (the non-hereditarily-affluent) individuals entering the workforce with the reins of debt upon them, allowing 'control' by external economic and cultural forces, hits particularly hard.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security wants to monitor hundreds of thousands of news sources around the world and compile a database of journalists, editors, foreign correspondents, and bloggers to identify top “media influencers.”
My goose is well and truly cooked. Anyone want to share a cell in Guantanamo? I'm terrible at chess, but I could probably make dolls out of jail-soap ...
As I sadly must repeat (for how many years now) that the military is trained to use lethal force as a deterrent. Police are not trained in this fashion (though that is changing swiftly for the worse). We've seen this on the border before, we've seen it in the policing of Iraq.
People have died. People will die. Because we perceive them as "other", noone will raise their voice with the vehemence required, I suspect. Public opinion will only move when the first child is killed - or will they? It will have brown skin. "Other."
I was trying out NBC News as an alternative for autoplay CBS, but this article makes me rethink the choice. Lard all this on Kennedy, with only one mention of Bill Clinton? Not a peep about Anthony Weiner? Really?!?! Some progress.
If farmers are worried, so are Republican politicians, who depended on small-town America to hand them control of Congress and know how quickly those voters could take it away. Just seven months before the 2018 midterm elections, Trump's faceoff with China over trade has exposed an unexpected political vulnerability in what was supposed to be the Republican Party's strongest region: rural America.
Aw gee. Supposed to feel sorry, are we?
Republicans are more eager than Democrats to discuss impeachment, as they want to wake up a lethargic conservative base with alarmist predictions of what a Democratic House might do.
He's right. Pipe down about impeachment, left. Concentrate on your PLATFORM damnit.
Though the asteroid certainly played a factor, the psychological deficit which rendered dinosaurs incapable of learning to refrain from eating certain plants had already placed severe strain on the species.
You'll excuse me if I find a commonality with the working class voting for today's conservative party.
It’s hard to think of another work whose interpretations so uncannily identify what the play calls the “form and pressure” of “the time.”
Related to this, another link: Atlantic, How Roseanne Divides the Left. Do you not remember the "Dukes of Hazzard", "Carter Country", etc.? Television shows throw us programming in what they decide is the flavor of our culture, as channelled through the stereotyped personality of our Presidents. Some have pointed to things like Trip Tucker's resemblance ["Star Trek: Enterprise"] and accent to George W. Bush.
@^#%Z%&^$. This man wouldn't recognize judicial activism if it bit him in the you-know-where. Trouble is, he's right. And it is going to be a very large problem for the remainder of my lifetime.
I don't especially appreciate his efforts.
