How awkward! The standard bearer of your party reiterates that he believes Islam is a religion that fundamentally hates America, and now you’re asked to defend or refute that idea. What’s a not-quite-identifiably-racist politician to do? Refute for the sake of decency? Defend in case the leader of your party ever becomes President?
Nah. Just talk about “melting pots” till your hosts ears explode and they cut off your mic.
Among the reasons floated for Bernie Sanders’ success in Michigan has been that Rust Belt states take a dim view of Clinton’s ties to the acts and policies that helped destroy good union jobs in the region. Talking Points Memo amplifies that message in a new article, arguing that it is Hillary Clinton’s association with her husband’s policies – enhanced by her current chumminess with banking – that may dog her through these Mid-western states.
Rather than have to admit that Trump Steaks is a defunct business, under questioning from Anderson Cooper, Trump prefers to say that they sell the steaks in his clubs. And he has, in his own words, “many successful clubs and restaurants.”
Not to belabor a point, but if you didn’t kill the cow and you didn’t butcher the meat and no one opened a box that said, “Trump Steaks,” then all you did was feed your guests steak. Not Trump Steaks.
It turns out that, while the Black Lives Matter movement undeniably gets at the heart of at least one social issue, the victims who sparked the protest also had something else in common. They were all disabled. And that, this report suggests, is the real and ignored issue.
I wonder if a similar pattern can be seen here in Rochester?
Even the biggest asshole is useful for something, I suppose.
Leave it to Ted Cruz to be handed an opportunity to look presidential and turn it into an opportunity to act like a complete asshat. This is why literally everybody publicly associated with him seems to hate him. Because absolutely nobody buys into the argument that Ted Cruz didn’t engage in the same flaccid counter-bullying that Rubio tried and failed at.
Like any good SNL skit, this one just says out loud what we have been thinking all along.
And no, they absolutely did not miss the opportunity to point out that Ted Cruz ate a booger.
This is as incredible as it is horrifyingly predictable. As states across the country look towards harsher and harsher restrictions on abortions, so as to do an end-run around the SCOTUS and federal statutes, analysis of Google searches reveals an unmistakable trend. The more restrictive the state laws, the more home remedy abortion information is sought after.
It’s no surprise. Home remedy and witch doctor abortions of the 50’s claimed many lives and did not just spring up unbidden. They were and are a reaction to very real health concerns, the ignorance of which in state laws does nothing to solve.
So, for the sake of forcing people to abide by an arbitrary moral code, we allow actual humans to face death on their own.
Where white middle-aged men die at higher rates, there is a corollary high turn out for Trump. Super Tuesday confirms this, per the WaPo
That is incredible. The Republican Party is on it’s last legs.
I’m sure Donnie needs to look into this further before making a pronouncement.
This is the kind of thing that studying the genomes of species will reveal that no other method until now could possibly have done.
