… that someone has exposed which were behind a paywall. I’m merely acknowledging its existence.

@bskeet said in moderates and progressives:
Curious if a moderate like Klobuchar or Pete could pick up votes if they repositioned themselves as a ‘progressive that isn’t a socialist’ and push Bernie and Warren further into a fringe space.
I doubt it. I don’t think there really is a moderate in the D field per se. They all message on progressive bona fides. Bernie is Bernie is Bernie. I don’t think he’d change his message with a gun to his head.
Yea I agree. Yet we Are promoting a perception as fact. I’ve yet to hear or see any evidence that trump (like me, hate him) actually said investigate joe Biden. Have you?
Also just look at the articles of impeachment? Obstruction of justice? Because Trump did not respond to some of the subpoenas by the house. If your check, every president has done that. Why wouldn’t all those presidents even the great Obama get impeached?
Like I said this a which hunt. I’m mean you have Joe Biden on camera demanding a quid pro quo. And his son who has no experience in energy and oil gets the most Cush job in the world. But we don’t investigate that? we don’t look at that? no we speculate on what trump means by what he says, and present evidence off persons testimonies that didn’t even hear the phone call. Let’s not forget trump released the transcripts of such phone call. Also as by standard, there were a A minimum of 20 people that where on that phone call with President Trump. Yea twenty. Yet the evidence lies with persons that heard from a friend that heard it from a friend.
Yep, then Chief of Staff Mulvaney admitted to the exact thing the House accuses Trump of doing. It’s not even really debatable. Congress is entitled to whatever documents it requires for an impeachment proceeding. Executive privilege in this context is nonsense. The only time a President can lawfully withhold material documents from Congress is when they don’t have anything to do with Article I power. For example, the House doesn’t have the right to internal Article II documents related to foreign treaties, but the Senate does because it has the sole power to ratify treaties.
Whether DoJ investigates the Biden’s is another matter entirely and not related to this impeachment. There was no transcript. There was a memo written later but not a verbatim transcript.
By the way, I did not - no bullshit! - post this trash topic (just now saw it). Someone edited what I originally posted, which was so freaking long ago that I forgot what it was. If it were mine, I’d own it - but it is not.
from Muslim apologist Obama?
Tell me more about what you mean by Muslim apologist. I’m honestly curious.
Still curious on this one.
@Crimsonorblue22 It’s fine when he does it. You see he’s white so in his mind that means he is above black people. To him they are all rappers and thugs. The hate u give, right? It just blows me away that someone who likes the Jayhawks as much as I do could be a white supremacist (Pretty sure this is the first time I’ve called HEM a name but at this point he’s earned it). Guess it means I shouldn’t really generalize about a large group of people. Maybe we should all try that.
@Crimsonorblue22 We’ve seen that movie too. Great stuff. If you want to hear her speak, there’s a podcast called “The January Series of Calvin College” and she spoke at that school in 2011. The podcast is still there. Fascinating story from her.
As per the other discussion it varies a little place by place but as a rule, public schools can’t just kick out a kid because they’re disabled. But I’ve been on the receiving end of many a kid kicked out of public charter schools (in almost all cases because of behavior) and we had no choice, we had to serve them educationally. They generally were not my best and brightest unfortunately.
This remind me of…
First They Came by Pastor Martin Niemoller
First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me
@approxinfinity If you read what I actually wrote, I’m not addressing what he did (founder and sole employee, apparently). I was addressing the type of structure, not the activities, and the comments that seem to find it nefarious that the conservative donors are not disclosed. Planned Parenthood is also a dark money group.
A little food for thought:
Most immigration to the U.S. actually comes from Asia now - primarily India and China, but other places as well.
Many of the “illegal” immigrants in the country were actually once “legal” immigrants. They are now here because they have either overstayed their work or student visa, or have not met the conditions to have their visa renewed.
Asylum seekers are a different category than regular immigrants. Lumping them together is lazy because they come to this country under different programs and must meet different requirements.
I’m not going to try to dive into all of the politics of it because immigration and asylum are complex things.
I will note that just because Democrats don’t support a border wall doesn’t mean open borders. Did you know that Mexico actually has had a negative immigration rate with the U.S. over the past few years. That means more people went from the U.S. to Mexico than from Mexico to the U.S.
Just a few items to think about while you sit on the couch in a food coma over the next few days.
I am very familiar with Government issued offcial ID card; in most of Latin America it is called Carnet de Identidad and it is required to do any paperwork with the government. Unfortunately, every time this has been proposed in this country it has been opposed…by liberals…that claim big government is trying to keep track of everybody. if you think this will ever be implemented in this country you are absolutely dreaming. BTW, all this countries that have the government issued ID have even bigger problems with vote fraud so it is not the solution.
Having to show proof of identity such as a valid license or birth certificate is not not that much of a burden and a samll price to have clean elections. We have to present proof of identity to buy cigarettes or liquor, legally drive, see certain movies or apply for government benefits and no one seems to have a problem with it; it becomes a problem when you want people that cannot prove they can legally do it to actually vote. Do you know the Lakeland Shooter registered to vote from jail, gave the jail address as his address and was legally registered? Our system is broken because there is a vested interest to have ineligible people vote…it is really that simple and fraud is rampant.
A tour of the White House is a great experience. It’s something that you should do if you get the chance. I have been in DC a couple of different times, but both times no tours were available the days I was free to go. Maybe next time. There is a lot of history around DC. Not just the White House, but all along the Mall. The White House is tough to get into now (for good reason), but the Smithsonian and all of the memorials and other museums make a DC trip worthwhile if you are into the history at all.
