  1. Bad news - Holy schitt....I actually agree with Sarah Palin Good News - this hopefully kills any chance of her getting a job with the new administration
  2. Un-fucking-believable.
  3. Got through the season coming home from China. overall, I thought it was great....but the finale felt a bit rushed. Kinda like "oh schitt...we gotta wrap this thing up 'cuz we only have one episode left". Thought BBT and William Hurt were both great.
  4. Seriously...WTF. Yeah, double down on the stupid...that's the answer. Our whole "One China" policy is a "wink wink, nudge nudge" / don't' ask, don't tell policy. Diplomacy is as much about what is not said as what is said. The fact that he doesn't grasp this basic fact is frightening.
  5. Yeah, just saw this when I landed. Absolutely shocking development. "Ignorant" doesn't begin to cover what he just did. Even worse, he is making all these calls to world leaders WITHOUT and briefings from the State Department before he does so....simply unbelievable.
  6. One month ago today.....
  7. If it is possible, I actually dislike Lewandowski and Conway more than Trump. Horrible, disgusting individuals selling their souls.....fook 'em both.
  8. OneWest was also personally named by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2013 for not paying out insurance claims in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, which caused billions of dollars in damage to homes and businesses in the Empire State. Cuomo’s website called out OneWest for holding onto almost 40 percent of insurance payments that should have been disbursed in the wake of the storm, amounting to over $14.3 million. While OneWest was recently sold to the CIT Group, turning into CIT bank, Mnuchin still owns over $100 million in CIT stock and sits on the board of the company. Senators Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) have vowed to do everything in their power to stop Mnuchin from becoming the next Treasury Secretary. While this is clearly despicable and disgusting behavior, saying that Munchkin foreclosed on a 90 YO woman is sensationalist. He personally didn't do it and the odds that he knew the details of this, or any of the foreclosures handled by his firm, are about zero. Just to be clear...I am NOT defending the actions of OneWest, but saying that these are "horrifying new details" about Munchkin is clearly misleading.
  9. Listening to Bush 43 speak was like nails on the chalkboard for me.....stopped listening to SoU and other speeches as a result. I now long for the past.
  10. Depends on why you are "standing up", I suppose.....as noted, before now, I never would have considered it. But if someone truly tried to enact laws such as what Trump suggested, yeah, I'd burn a flag in defiance in a heartbeat.
  11. Sure, if they are doing it out of anger or protest. For a crude example, how many people torched their $100+ Lebrun James jerseys when he signed with Miami? i never would have considered burning the flag....but as I noted, if Trump seriously plans to pursue his idea (which I doubt), I will no longer stand for the NA, recite the Pledge (which I have long thought of as dumb, anyway) and will gladly burn a flag in protest.
  12. Again, seems to me the best way to honor those sacrifices is to utilize those freedoms and stand up to those who want to limit them. Kimda lessens their sacrifice if we just stand around and let the government strip away that for which they sacrificed.
  13. Who said that it doesn't mean anything at all?
  14. Blocked.....but I'll make a note to avoid any fish options on my way to the airport today. Getting sprung a day early!
  15. Just like Google and YouTube, posts from Andrew are blocked in China. What did he say?
