    It's only fair to point out that he could have and would have finished them both at any time.
    That Putin ordered it done.

    I've been meaning to mention here the news stories from the last few days concerning the alleged hit man accused of killing crime boss Francesco Cali, and how he "flashed signals of support" for Trump during a court appearance.

    I guess it's official - Trump supporters now have gang signals.
    I suppose they'll have "colors" and "turf" next.

    Thank you to all my Democratic friends who have decided that truth is better than hatred and we can come together as we ALL work to make America great. Thank you to all my Republican friends who chose dignified humility instead of gloating. And to the rest of you... do better today. We are in this together.
    By the "rest of you" she means the haters who don't support Bonespur. So I go,
    Hate has nothing to do with it for me. I don't support Trump and that is my choice, not my hate.
    And some chick asked me who I did support if it wasn't Trump. I said Biden. She was like, Wow. Okay. And so reacted with a .

    Close - it may be the only thing to sort of like about the guy.

    Nah - Hillary is too "middle of the road" these days.
    Wave a little AOC or Sanders at her - tell her that the pendulum has swung too far right and needs some major leftward movement to get it back toward center.
    Maybe tell her and her kind that you're going to be a volunteer for AOC when she runs for President against Trump.

    If only AOC was of age she would make a great President.

    So I gather I'm not the only one who loves AOC to pieces??? She is making Hispanic women look brilliantly amazing.

    I'm not that big on socialism, but for a mouthy broad from one of those Mexican countries, she's sort of refreshing as far as politicians go.
    Wait - that was probably insensitive and rude of me - one should never call a chick a broad, it's disrespectful.

    Seriously though, I think her being labeled "AOC" is pretty cool.
    It's sort of like "Bono" or "Sting" or "Cher"; just memorable, and when you hear it; you don't wonder which AOC they're talking about.

    That sort of label is kind of common for rock stars, but it isn't that common in politics, although she's not the first.
    We had FDR and JFK and LBJ, and I'm sure some others I don't recall at the moment.

    But like I said, I'm not that big on socialism but I do admire some of her convictions concerning human rights and environmental stewardship.
    I suspect that she would be very interesting to talk to, and I'm sure other politicians both past and present would have found her interesting too.

    FDR likely would have wanted to talk to her about her ideas on gainfully employing the masses for their own personal welfare and to strengthen the economy to boot.
    JFK probably would have picked her brain about how to be more inclusive of minorities and how to encourage immigrants and the children of immigrants to "become American" without feeling like they had to abandon the culture of their parents.
    LBJ no doubt would have wanted to balance her socialistic ideals with the humanistic ideals of his "Great Society".
    Bernie Sanders would likely just want to discuss many aspects of their somewhat similar political philosophies.
    And Trump undoubtedly would just want to grab her boobs and then maybe offer her a few bucks to keep quite about it while telling her what an important guy he is.

    So yeah, I'm interested in watching her develop and grow into her role and see where things go.

    So is assuming all Spanish-speaking countries are Mexican. AOC is Puerto Rican. Since Puerto Rico is a US territory she's a US citizen.

    Puerto Rico?
    Yeah, that's one of those three Mexican Counties that were in the news last week.
    Trump cut 'em off - no more aid for you, Mexico(s).

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/31/media...ter/index.html

    I just saw a headline on Yahoo News saying that Trump was being blasted for an "idiotic comment".
    I started to read the article but thought, damn - I've got to get to work, I don't have time to start reading a new novel right now; even though I really enjoy reading non-fiction writing. Besides, I can always read it later after they add more pages - it will certainly be more substantial tomorrow than it is today.

    Apparently, he made some comment about wind turbine power generators causing cancer or some such thing, which is what people should really expect out of him at this point.
    Next, he just needs to deny ever having said it while a video of him saying it plays on giant monitors, and then that news story will be complete.

    And BTW - I called AOC a "mouthy broad" just so that I could later call her a chick.
    A character in a Weird Al movie from the late 80's admonished a co-worker, "Never call a chick a broad - it's disrespectful...", I've been wanting to use that ever since; and I only had to wait 30 years - thanks, Trump!

    I'm so progressive I'm going to vote for a candidate who doesn't even exist!

    And then I will be smugly superior throughout Trump's second term!

    Also, I may be mentally handicapped!

    A guy at work today explained to me how Trump is either the first or second greatest President we've had during our lifetimes.
    He's done so many great things during his first term, that if he can just serve a second one; he'll have everything all straightened out.
    What's more, the Russians and the Chinese know that we've got a President now who won't hesitate to bomb them back into the stone age if they push him too far, and that's a good and respectable thing.
    He was serious, too.

    A friend of mine would think the same thing. I can put down the phone and do my laundry or maybe even go for a drive and when I come back he is still talking ! LOL

    I'm just going to copy and paste my latest Facebook rant:

    Okay, this post will be a little longer. So long, in fact, that Facebook won’t let me put a pretty picture behind it. But bear with me.

    Regarding these “heartbeat bills”: Conservative legislators in Alabama, Georgia et al. didn’t suddenly decide that they wanted to take us back to the Dark Ages.

    This is about Donald Trump, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Roe v. Wade. Trump has been able to put two Justices on the Court SO FAR, and the “heartbeat” people feel (rightly, I fear) that Roe is ripe for the picking.

    What can be done about this? Right now, not much, other than have faith that the courts will strike these laws down and it doesn’t go any further than that. Oh, and we can make memes about the issue. All these memes are AWESOME. They change absolutely nothing, but they are nevertheless AWESOME.

    But there’s something EVERYBODY can do in 2020, specifically on November 3rd. Vote for the Democratic nominee. Don’t vote for Jill Stein 2.0. Don’t stay at home as a “protest.” Don’t make an asinine argument that “all the major party candidates are the same.” That is patently false, and our current waking nightmare is a perfect illustration: If HRC had been elected, we would NOT be in this situation. Period.

    Also, if between now and Election Day, the Supreme Court actually issues a ruling that protects Roe, everything I’ve said still applies. These states can always pass new laws. And Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 86 years old.

    With the level of concern these states are showing for human life, you'd think they'd be all in favor of free food, housing and medical care - necessities of life - for those who can't afford it.

    Many would.
    And therein lies both the rub and the key.

    States or governments which mandate that pregnancy must end in birth maybe should be able to do that - as long as they also mandate and enact laws to ensure that birth begins a fruitful life free from want of the necessities of life and well-being. Establish laws to protect the unborn, then also establish laws to protect those who are born. You mandate the birth, you also have a moral obligation to see to the lives of mother and child for forever thereafter. Let the judges who rule on such laws require that, and watch the crawfishing begin: "But, but, but... that's not our problem!"

    Besides, I think we can go more directly to the real heart of the matter simply by criminalizing unplanned pregnancies.
    If every pregnancy was the result of deliberate planning, the abortion issue would go away except in cases with medical considerations.

    That poses a problem or two of course, so it logically follows that sexual intercourse should be a criminal act except when it is intended to result in pregnancy. Unfortunately, sex doesn't always result in pregnancy, so something has to be done to make sure that it will do so more often, just to make sure that people aren't doing it for improper reasons.

    Perhaps the Catholic church could go back to putting aside concerns about priestly sexual abuse of minors long enough to educate us on the matter; as proper sexual motivations and the evils of contraception are already a part of their doctrine.

    That should have a significant impact and do much to alleviate the issue and address the moral concerns of most people with an opinion in the matter.
    It gets closer to the root of the problem rather than merely addressing the later consequences.

    Drawing from the wisdom an icon who was far ahead of his time, who seems to be the philosophical and intellectual role model for many "mainstream" conservatives today:

    You've got to nip it.
    Nip it in the bud.

    Mandated sanctity of birth must be followed by mandated sanctity of the resulting life.

    The US is all about the sanctity of life, as long as the child has not actually been born yet.

    George Carlin had a bit once about how maybe we could get more support for abortion rights if we could just figure out a way to get a tiny electric chair in the womb.
