McCain said today that apparently he has had a very poor prognosis for his brain tumor:

These videos of people burning their NFL tops (yeah, that'll teach 'em!), are they dousing them in accelerant first, or are those things just really fucking flammable?

The irony is that many of these people are pissed at the protests because it's not going to do anything.

Amazing how this was almost literally a plot point from this season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Whoah, hold on there - let's not slander Carter Burke by comparing him to Miller.

 

Burke could at least fake compassion and sincerity, suggesting he at least understood the concepts. He also demonstrates a dark sense of humour - 'Maybe we could build a camp fire, sing a few songs?' 

 

If Miller were in Burke's shoes, he'd slap Ripley awake and start demanding he tell her where her crew found the aliens, interrupting her to call the colony and tell Newt's family 'To get your expendable asses out there at fucking once, I pay you to do what I fucking tell you.'

Nope, "Dr." Cassidy says he intends to keep fucking that chicken past the end of September.

 

I'm amazed these people can walk in public without being pelted with rocks and bottles.

Seabass, they can walk it past September all they like, but once September 30th passes, it becomes a lot harder to.

Yeah, after september, they need 60 votes, so it's dead for this year.

 

Then next year, they want to use their lone 50-vote bill for tax reform (oy). So it's either dead for 2018 too, or they'd have to do a dual-bill with it and tax reform, when they can't pass health care alone... which means it's dead for 2018 too.

 

In 2018, barring God being real and turning out to be a real dick, the Republicans will lose the House, and the dream of murdering the poor via health care dies through 2020.

 

Right now, the Republicans have managed to somehow make it more likely that we see universal health care than they get their ACA repeal. They are truly impressive in their incompetence.

Great for them!  They'll all still be rich, and have access to the levers of power, no matter what happens!

 

Yeah, that's me being my usual paranoid self, but hell, the channel is well and truly flooded.  I'm still amazed Mnuchin hasn't been run out of town on a rail for being a literal robber-baron, while his wife screeches 'let them eat cake.'

Seems like the Trump administration was using private email accounts for government business like it was going out of style - Priebus and Bannon were both doing it too, among others.

Yes, my point was to show how desperately these alleged people want to see you either enslaved to your employer for the insurance or living in fear of being bankrupted by a busted ankle or something.  There is something really, really wrong with the glee these people have in making people suffer.

Trump is finally taking some time to talk about Puerto Rico's crisis, and he's essentially blaming the island:

 

 

Also, water is absolutely not "doing well."  Right now, 60% of the island's inhabitants don't have safe drinking water.

 

How crazy is this?  American citizens are in dire straits right now, and we're talking about fucking Wall Street?  Gross.

While I am glad that the anthem controversy blew up in the Donalds face, I am annoyed at the apparent lack of understanding of the fox news crowd.  It has nothing to do with the flag or the military at all.

 

There's a striking piece in the Broad museum in LA.  The last time I was there it was not on the wall anymore but here it is

And I'm seeing on twitter that the official reason for not sending the USNS Comfort, the hospital ship built explicitly for disaster relief, to Puerto Rico is because 'there aren't any ports large enough for it.' Even though PR has several deep water ports. And the Comfort has a flight deck and could just anchor off shore and fly patients to and from.

No chance. Republicans don't care about Puerto Rico. Louisiana they needed to remain reliably red.

The White House is preparing to blame McConnell for this week's likely failures of health care legislation (again) and Luther Strange's loss:

Quote:

The Trump White House is gearing up to lay blame for a series of likely failures this week squarely at the feet of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), according to sources in and outside of the administration.

 

On Tuesday, Republican primary voters in Alabama are poised to reject Trump and McConnell’s preferred pick for the seat, Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL). The next day, a Republican-authored last-ditch attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare is almost certain to go down to defeat, if it comes to a vote at all.

 

The dual setbacks could have profound ramifications throughout the party, forcing it to reckon with a Republican electorate deeply upset with its inability to move an agenda and its own inability to get that agenda moved. The rush to assign responsibility for that failure is taking place before it even occurs.

 

One senior Trump administration official told The Daily Beast that the president is “well prepared to” shovel blame onto McConnell if and when the latest Obamacare repeal effort goes down in flames later this week. Another Trump confidant noted that the president regularly vents about “Mitch’s” seeming inability to get “anything over the finish line.”

Trump never tried to craft a compelling vision for health care reform. He just wants a fucking bill to sign. But of course the piece of shit will never accept one iota of responsibility for his failures in office.

post #32683 of 34264
I support the ACA, but McCain's support of a repeal and replace plan was never framed as unconditional. He wanted something demonstrably better, passed under regular order. Graham Cassidy failed both tests. Say what you will about McCain, but he's not going to simply support any health care bill that's put before him. Unlike Trump, he at least cares about the substance of reform, not just the optics of a signing ceremony.

Tired Shit: reading the news in the morning and, for the last few weeks, constantly seeing close-up photos of DJT and NK Supreme Leader. Remember when the architects of the apocalypse used to be ordinary looking people? Not that Hrustsev, George W, Castro, Saddam Hussein and Bin Laden could form a successful boy band, but at least they looked like mentally and physically functioning adults.

Really? I always see him as a 12-year old with a thyroid condition. There's a very strong chance that he keeps a Hello Kitty backpack in his closet.

"Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick takes a knee during the national anthem in San Francisco last year. We noticed, but very few players joined him.

He can’t get a job in the NFL now, and very few have said much about that, either.

But the president says he wants that peaceful protest to stop… He says those players should be fired if they take a knee during the anthem, and calls those players a name I never thought I’d live long enough to hear a president say.

Now, everybody cares.

Donald Trump has said he supports a peaceful protest because it's an American's right… But not this protest, and there's the problem: The opinion that any protest you don't agree with is a protest that should be stopped.

Martin Luther King should have marched across a different bridge. Young, black Americans should have gone to a different college and found a different lunch counter. And college kids in the 60's had no right to protest an immoral war.

I served in the military during the Vietnam War... and my foot hurt, too. But I served anyway.  

My best friend in high school was killed in Vietnam. Carroll Meir will be 18 years old forever. And he did not die so that you can decide who is a patriot and who loves America more.

The young, black athletes are not disrespecting America or the military by taking a knee during the anthem. They are respecting the best thing about America. It's a dog whistle to the racists among us to say otherwise.

They, and all of us, should protest how black Americans are treated in this country. And if you don't think white privilege is a fact, you don't understand America.

The comedian Chris Rock said it best: There's not a white man in America who would trade places with him, and he's rich.

It has not gone unnoticed that President Trump has spoken out against the Mexicans who want to come to America for a better life against the Muslims and now against the black athlete. Ht he says nothing for days   ... about the white men who marched under a Nazi flag in Charlottesville except to remind us there were good people there. And when he finally tried to say the right thing not 1 of them was called an s-o-b, nor did he say anyone should be fired.

Maybe we all need to read our Constitution again. There has never been a better use of pen to paper. Our forefathers made freedom of speech the First Amendment. They listed 10, and not one of them says you have to stand during the national anthem.

And I think those men respected the country they fought for and founded -- a great deal more than the self-proclaimed patriots who are simply hypocrites -- because they want to deny the basic freedom of this great country…

A country they supposedly value, and cherish so much."

Holy shit. Sports commenters are saying what political reporters should be saying.
