"Again what is wrong with not lying, stealing or cheating..." - #26 | Posted by 45_Long_Colt at 2017-06-28 09:21 PM

Why is it you a$$holes are so stupid?

1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
No laws about that.
2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
No laws about that.
3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
No laws about that.
4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Only so-called blue laws, but that only stops buying alcohol on Sundays, not actually drinking it.
5. Honour thy father and thy mother.
No laws about that.
6. Thou shalt not kill.
Laws about that. But, then again, almost all civilizations, whether adhering to the Old Testament or not, have such laws. So nothing unique about the 10 Commandments here.
7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
There are, no doubt, some laws still on the books (plus the UCMJ), but we'll go with this one as "codified" by the 10 Commandments.
8. Thou shalt not steal.
Laws about that. But, as in #6, not unique to the 10 Commandments.
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
Unless someone is under oath, no laws about that.
10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's.
Not only are there no laws, but our entire capitalistic system is dependent upon coveting what thy neighbor has. "Keeping up with the Jones" sound familiar?

Get back to us when you have something - anything - better.

This is how mean he thinks it is:

Here's the truth:

He's a fucking retard and he doesn't have a fucking clue what is happening.

I think the next time a Dem takes advice from a Trump voter will be the first time.

Your ilk elected Trump. In your case it was more xenophobia, and vast stupidly, than anything else.

Thanks for the rwing SC for the next few decades.

There are at least as many citations already made on these pages for the racial animus held by many Trump supporters.... something that has been obvious to everyone with at least half a brain cell since Trump's campaign started.... which suddenly disappears as causation for some now because, well, they don't want to deal with it honestly, and it's not too useful politically.

- but about the "ground game" to reclaim local, state and federal races.

That's what it's about no matter the motivations of the Obama voters who moved to Trump. Try to stay focused for a change.

It's also obvious that of the factors associated with that motivation, both economic and racial motivators are present, though most of the experts in a half dozen of the most popular liberal news media point out various studies which agree that Clinton won the economy voters, in every swing state, and that the only real differences between the 2012 and the 2016 vote was not economics, but Trumped up racial and xenophobic fears.

That's all in links at the last 2 or 3 threads you've lost this argument on.

Dem policies are not going to change; they don't need to be either Trumpublican light or Full Bernie or they won't win those folks back. They just need to be presented in a better way, which is what Shumer is doing now.

And they aren't going to address these racial fears either, in any significant way, as that would annoy both the rwingers and the squeamishly precious lwingers whose handwringing over this fluke of a loss which has reached MTW proportions, so you can at least stop your whining about something that was never going to happen in the first place.

"Okay, let's start this meeting. We need a strategy on reforming health care. Bitch?"

"It's Mitch, Mr. President."

"Not from where I'm sitting. Bitch? What's the strategy for getting this through the Senate."

"Well, many of our colleagues our convinced that forcing 22 million people off of health insurance would be bad for their electoral chances, but several of them are convinced that we're not forcing enough people off of health care. Right now we're trying to figure out how to be more cruel ... but in a nice way. Senator Cruz suggested a compromise where some poor people can have health insurance, but only if they eat a live puppy."

"Puppies are good. People love puppies. I like it. We'll get good ratings. I, of course, prefer -----. But I get it. Paula?"

"Paul, Mr. President."

"Are you into this whole puppy eating thing?"

"The House Freedom caucus objects to the government giving free food to anyone, even if it is a rather cute puppy that they must horribly butcher and eat raw. They suggest that people have to go and buy a puppy on their own to eat."

"But what if they can't afford their own puppy?"

"The Freedom caucus suggested as an alternative that they could eat one of their children. That'll not only feed them, but also free up some of their income so they can pay higher insurance premiums."

"I like it. Always a parent's prerogative to eat the weaker of their spawn. Tried to do that with Tiffany, but she was just so fast and nimble. Could never get the drop on her. Just like her old man. Let's go with that then."

Transcript from Trump team's meeting with GOP Senators today:

"Okay, let's start this meeting. We need a strategy on reforming health care. Bitch?"

"It's Mitch, Mr. President."

"Not from where I'm sitting. Bitch? What's the strategy for getting this through the Senate."

This seems to hit the nail on the head:

In recent days, particularly since the Ossoff loss, Democrats have been doing a lot of finger-pointing.

There's been a movement to stop blaming the 2016 presidential election loss on Russia. And there have been calls to cut ties with current Democratic leaders like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). Some of those calls, within the House, come from lawmakers such as Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), who is worried about losing the white working class.

On the other end of the spectrum, some say Sanders's bashing of Democrats has only deepened wounds.

"A lot of people are sick of it," said Manley, a former adviser to then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). "The mainstream part of the party has had it up to here with what he's been saying."

Some Democrats are seeking to build a bridge between the two groups.

In an interview Sunday on ABC's "This Week," Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said the party will unveil a "strong, bold, sharp-edged and commonsense economic agenda" in the coming weeks.

Michael Tyler, a spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, said Democrats will look to expand their support across the party.

He acknowledged in an email to The Hill that in order to win elections, Democrats "have to focus on broadening and turning out our base and on reaching out to Americans who cast ballots for Donald Trump or didn't vote at all."

Tyler said Democrats are in the process of rebuilding a party "from an organization whose mission was solely to elect the president of the United States to one that organizes to elect Democrats up and down the ballot, from school board to Senate."

Glad to see that someone recognizes that this is not about the 70K voters that gave the election to Trump or identity politics but about the "ground game" to reclaim local, state and federal races.


Well... I was wrong, for now at least...

Senate Said to Delay Health Bill Vote Until After July 4 Recess
www.bloomberg.com

Senate leaders put off a vote on Republicans' health-care bill until after the July 4 recess, according to a person familiar with the plans, amid growing opposition from GOP members to the plan drafted in secret by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The decision to delay the vote planned for this week follows announcements by at least five Republicans that they'll vote to block Senate debate on the bill. McConnell needs support from at least 50 of the 52 Republicans to move forward with the measure.

President Donald Trump invited all Senate Republicans to the White House for a meeting on health care Tuesday afternoon, according to the person.

The delay is the latest roadblock Republicans have encountered in trying to deliver on their seven-year promise to repeal and potentially replace the 2010 Affordable Care Act. Repealing Obamacare was also a top campaign promise by Trump. The House mustered barely enough votes to pass its proposal on May 4 after having to cancel earlier vote plans for lack of support....
