Re: Rand Paul Fears Someone Will Be Killed

Perhaps Mr. Paul should be reminded someone already has been killed. Her name was Heather Heyer. She was from Charlottesville, Virginia. It happened in August of 2017. We were told there were very fine people on both sides of the incident. "Her name was Heather Heyer." Plagiarism. You're not gonna ...

Cruz wins by 190,000 votes.
Out of 16 million voters, that's what, 0.02 percent? Conceivable, but it sure as heck won't be 7.5%

Re: Could Cruz Really be ousted?

A PAC funded by the left advocating violence. No surprise there. Well it appears we've unearthed yet one more thing you're completely clueless about, that being any grasp on the 'ways of Texas'. If you've spent more than a nanosecond in the state you'd be aware the characterization in the ad is spo...

Re: Sexual assault allegations against Judge Kavanaugh

Nice to see a leftist show her true intentions. And this lady is a writer for Late Night with Stephen Colbert. But I'm sure she'll get a pass, will keep her job, and that Colbert himself won't have a word to say about this. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Do3bXG8UYAAz7kf.jpg As soon as you hold the Pre...

Re: All 3 statewide ballot proposals should be voted down

We should have ballots by mail. Cheaper, more effective, less chance of fraud. My ballot arrived yesterday I will probably mail it next week. Matt, when did you go all soft on me? Here's a link to a piece put together by Oregon Public Broadcasting for the 20th anniversary of vote-by-mail in the sta...

Re: Is a Red Wave forming?

I don't look at it in terms of whom is more damaged. There appears to be plenty of hurt to go around. No, I just happen to be of the opinion that, politics aside, what kind of human is repugnant enough to induce a crowd to jeer a sexual attack victim and for you, what kind of humanity is in your sou...

How is what Trump said two nights ago "mocking a ridiculing sexual assault"? He was only stating the obvious - that Ford's testimony was full of substantive holes. Spin it however you like but there's something very fucked up about whipping a crowd into a frenzy of contempt for a sexual assault vic...

Re: Google Removes First Amendment Blog

Sounds like Ambien, or worse, possibly LSD. Before some of you become armchair Wikipedia Pharamacologists, I have looked and seen that Ambien was not available in 1982. But other drugs, marijuana and even certain mushrooms, have hallucinogenic effects like stationary objects moving. I don't normall...

Monday: (Contradicting his sworn testimony?) Police questioned Kavanaugh and four other men, and Kavanaugh “did not want to say” whether he threw the beer. He was not arrested. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/01/us/politics/kavanaugh-bar-fight.html BTW - If you're looking for a character witness to...

Re: Sexual assault allegations against Judge Kavanaugh

Trump doesn't need anyone on the Court to stop anything. If he finds himself in a worst case scenario (which he won't), then he has pardon power. Trump picked a conservative because that's what he campaigned on. End of story. So you're saying the better alternative to having someone else getting hi...

Re: Sexual assault allegations against Judge Kavanaugh

The reason Trump’s selected Kavanaugh is because he needs the court to stop any legal action against him that comes up from the Russia Investigation or any lawsuits filed. Trump is exclusively all about TRUMP first. Not anyone or anything else. No matter how he cons you into believing otherwise. Bi...

Re: Sexual assault allegations against Judge Kavanaugh

I've been watching a lot of crime drama and Dateline type shows recently. The Dateline shows reveal that phone records, cell phone pings, texts, social media posts, and videos taken by the suspects themselves, as well as DNA and ballistic evidence, convicts them. There was very little concrete evid...

Re: Sexual assault allegations against Judge Kavanaugh

I wonder though if Ford would have never brought up the allegations if Judge Kavanaugh wasn't nominated or nominated by Trump.
