alternative facts

You are wrong Gromnir. There really WAS a Bowling Green massacre. Last September Ohio State beat them 77-10, That must be what Conway was talking about!

possible.  am knowing ohio state has more than a few student-athletes who likely scored worse on their sat/act than would the typical somali refugee, but as flagrant as is urban meyer's abusing o' ncaa regulations when he were at florida and now at ohio st. is hardly rising to the level o' terrorism.  close, perhaps.

 

Pelosi just said she can't work with President Bush. I'm not butthurt like some, so I'll just say she misspoke.

am thinking you aren't quite getting into the spirit o' the this the way vol did.  a simple slip o' tongue, momentarily confusing new hampshire for vermont, or similar such stuff is not gonna get the alternative facts treatment.

 

HA! Good Fun!

“I watched last night in amazement and I heard things that I couldn’t believe, things that really had nothing to do with what I just read."

 

“I don’t ever want to call a court biased, so I won’t call it biased, and we haven’t had a decision yet, but courts seem to be so political and it would be so great for our justice system if they would be able to read a statement and do what’s right, and that has to do with the security of our country, which is so important.”

 

“I was a good student, I understand things, I comprehend very well, OK? Better than, I think, almost anybody. And I want to tell you that I listened to a bunch of stuff last night on television that was disgraceful, it was disgraceful, because what I just read to you is what we have and it just can’t be written any plainer or better.”

Trump really should be a president for life of some banana republic.

The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

He might get to be anyway. All he needs to do is start pushing up daisies during the next 8 years and he was president for life. He is kind of old anyway, and lots of presidents died in office. *shrug*

Give me ears, so I hear
Give me love, so I know what love is
Give me freedom to think, to believe

Trump seems like a pretty contemptible person, but wishing for his death seems a bit harsh.

Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

Quote

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Sorry, I don't catch the meaning. People thinking the same for Bush? ...Course, others thought the same for Obama, and others still thought and even planned worse than that still for both of them, and I'm sure the same will be true for Trump.

Oh, there were quite a lot of hoping for Bush to die to downright assassination-fantasies on other gaming-forums i frequented back in the day. Point being that things haven't changed much.

I don't know, Trump seems to have incited the disdain of a good deal more of the typically moderate or apolitical crowd than any of our recent Presidents. Sure, the typical liberal is going to froth at the mouth just like they did with Bush, but that is to be expected. Just like the hardcore conservatives are going to blame the media for all of their woes. But the divide seems much sharper right now with very few people landing in the middle.

Seems like a general trend though; it's getting more and more difficult to stay moderate in the polarized U.S. political environment. It's not a very healthy environment for democracy.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-questions-credibility-of-senator-who-disclosed-comments-by-judge-gorsuch/ar-AAmL7Aj?li=AA5a8k&ocid=spartanntp

 

multiple sources has confirmed gorsuch comments, but trump loves alternative facts.

 

gorsuch were our personal top pick 'mongst trump's finalists.  is our opinion gorsuch would be, from day 1, the third best writer on the Court.  given time he might even eclipse roberts, though am thinking kagan gots a significant lead.  from our perspective, gorsuch is a bit too polite in dissent, and am suspecting he lacks the humor and wit o' a scalia or kagan.  for those who is unaware, kagan actual used a dr. seuss cite in a dissent from 2015.  regardless, am hopeful trump alternative facts doesn't impact gorsuch confirmation.

 

HA! Good Fun!

No they don't, read more carefully:

Ron Bonjean, a spokesman aiding Gorsuch in the confirmation process, largely confirmed Blumenthal’s account, saying Gorsuch didn’t use the word “abhorrent” but did say “disheartening” and “demoralizing.”

Don't know why Gorsuch is conspiring with his enemies against the man who nominated him though, talk about an ingrate. If he has something to say, say it to Trump's face.
