Yabbut... sometimes it seems like Trump doesn't want a second term. I mean, how else to explain his recent statement about gutting Medicare being a "fun second-term project?" :think:
I didn’t think he wanted a first term.

Re: Flying the unfriendly skies

I remember about 30 years ago, when I was a member of the Board of Trustees of Mary Holmes College, trying to board a Piedmont Air flight in West Point, Mississippi to Atlanta, Georgia. After being told my flight was late is said, "Whaddya mean, the flight is boarding now." "That's yesterday's flig...

Re: How Hard Will Donald Go Down?

'licious -- racism and Christian hegemony remain great motivators. Those hurt badly by the economy will stick by Trump because the collapse of the economy will be the fault of the international banksters and Trump was just trying to rein China in. :yeah: They don’t care.

Any particular reason why he would file it in the Virgin Islands? He had to have had that will drawn up while he was in custody. Give the guy credit for planning ahead.

I always think of that story W4 tells about her cousin who, on sunny days, stands on his porch, with his hands on his hips, and shouts, "We're making money!" :lol: We have solar.

Re: Residential Solar

We have solar. We’ve had it for about 7 years. We got the big federal tax break, plus a grant from the state (Virginia), so what would have been a $28K install ended up around 16K (I think). It’s pretty awesome.

Re: Paul Whelen - Spy?

I was wondering whatever happened to this guy. He’s still in Lefortovo awaiting trial, but apparently is suffering from a hernia which may require medical treatment, according to the Detroit Free Press. Also, supposed to be another detention hearing in August. https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/...

I find it sad that Commodore Popeye McAngryPants has been reduced to the rank of "former inmate" in the hallowed pages of the P&E.
I know, right? Maybe we should start referring to him as Inmate (Ret.)
And subject to recall to active duty.

Skeptical about what? I’m not saying you’re wrong to be skeptical, but there’s fertile ground for skepticism, so, just curious what triggered your skept-o-meter.
