Re: House Judiciary: AG William Barr Public Hearing - 5/2/19; Mueller Report

“The business of government can move on,” Romney continued. “Even so, I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President.”

My read is that the Barr summary provides cover for the senators who do not want to convict.

Re: Mueller's investigation

The wording is a bit strange. The talking heads are yappin' about this "unredacted" version for Congress, but the words seem to imply that there are severe limits to the "unredaction" .. like maybe just the Stone-related stuff.. Starting to smell like a way to say "see? we gave you an unredacted ver...

Re: Issues 2020: Medicare for All/Public Option

Health insurers siphon money out of healthcare and send it to their executives and shareholders.

So yeah, they are a critical part of the healthcare system. :sarcasm:

Re: Hijack this thread

My objection to the gas grill is that it didn't add any flavor to the meat. Reverse sear. It's on my list to try. I've been a charcoal fan forever, but thinking using the reverse sear technique with the smoker will let me move to a gas grill.. https://www.traegergrills.com/smokenomics/reverse-searing

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

Trump once again shows how he is not a world leader.

Trump is all about things, not people. Provides "helpful hints" about the building. Does not even think about reassuring the people (of Paris, of France, and of the world).

What an asshole.
