    The Dems just need to find the right Billionaire to run. Then they’re in business. Too bad Soros was born overseas.

    On edit: You know, the Hawaii dept of vital statistics has been looking for Soros’ birth certificate, and they may have just found it...:rolleyes1:

    Joe, I would laugh at all those skits. But I doubt all the Millenials would.

    Her grandfather was named John Herring? To hear her tell it I would have guessed his last name was Proudeagle or Runningbear, something along those lines.

    I am spending a few days skiing with the family in Colorado. I was refused a six pack of Coors at the grocery store unless I could show ID’s for myself, wife AND 20 year old child. Then, they asked me if I wanted to pay for my bags to self check out. Yet there is a dispensary about every block.

    Liberal nanny state ain’t for me. Time to split the USA up before a civil war.

    For a party that’s all about diversity, there sure was a whole lot of whiteness up there on stage. :smokin:

    Would Coors Light have been ID free?

    To be fair, buying Coors when there are so many good craft beers in Colorado is pretty indefensible.

    No kidding. That was a request from one of the family members. The craft beers on the mountain are great.

    Just read this which summarizes the most meaningful attempt to rein in federal spending. A bit long but the question is, DID IT WORK? WHERE IS SPENDING NOW? And if spending blew through this like a speed bump then that right there is the case for Conservatism in America. Not social problems but the control of the government. JUST SAY NO is apparently the only answer. You can argue the definition of socialism all day long but to me it is most illustrated by the growth of the federal bureaucracy; a workforce that is unaccountable and permanent. It creates no economic value but relies upon the taxpayer for it's existence. In order to justify itself, everything must be seen as a moral imperative. And we know the politicians are uninterested in discussing the bureaucracy except during election time when they regale us once again with notions of cutting government waste.

    How many times have you heard that one?

    "In 2011, sequestration was used in the Budget Control Act of 2011 (Pub. L. 112-25) as a tool in federal budget control.[2] This 2011 act authorized an increase in the debt ceiling in exchange for $2.4 trillion in deficit reduction over the following ten years. This total included $1.2 trillion in spending cuts identified specifically in the legislation, with an additional $1.2 trillion in cuts that were to be determined by a bipartisan group of Senators and Representatives known as the "Super Committee" or officially as the United States Congress Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction. The Super Committee failed to reach an agreement. In that event, a trigger mechanism in the bill was activated to implement across-the-board reductions in the rate of increase in spending known as "sequestration".[14]

    The Sequestration Transparency Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112-155) requires the president to submit a report to Congress on a potential sequestration which may be triggered by the failure of the "Super Committee" to propose and for Congress to enact, a plan to reduce the U.S. Federal Budget by $1.2 trillion as required by the Budget Control Act.[15] The report – which was issued September 14, 2012, and was close to 400 pages long – provided the warning that "sequestration would be deeply destructive to national security... and core government functions".[16]

    The start of the sequestration was delayed from January 2, 2013 to March 1, 2013 by the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, which was passed by both houses of Congress on January 1, 2013 as a partial resolution to the fiscal cliff crisis.[17] The bill also lowered the sequestration cap for 2014 to offset the two-month delay in 2013. Also, for 2013 only, certain "security" funding such as homeland security and international affairs were included in the sequestration cut in order to lessen the cuts to defense.[18]

    In December 2013, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 increased the sequestration caps for fiscal years 2014 and 2015 by $45 billion and $18 billion, respectively,[19] in return for extending the imposition of the cuts to mandatory spending into 2022 and 2023, and miscellaneous savings elsewhere in the budget.[20]"

    It seems like all that talk from progressives about the wonders and joy of diversity do not apply to their presidential field?

    The 2016 Republican field, on the other hand, .....

    Looking at him now and seeing what an obvious weirdo he is, I can't believe that guy almost won a Senate seat.

    Ted Cruz is not a weirdo? And what is his real name anyway?

    I did not vote for Beto but I would not vote for a guy who would assume the position after Candidate Bonespurs accused my dad of being a Castroite and insulted my wife.

    Speaking of wives, Bonespurs married a gold digging clothes horse who posed topless. Sterling values he has

    First, I voted for Cruz over Beta because Beta had a ******** policy agenda, and Cruz generally doesn't. It wasn't anything more than that, and I don't particularly care who's weird.

    Second, I'm a one-percenter or at worst, a five-percenter. Most voters didn't know diddly dick about either of their policy agendas. The voted for Cruz because he had a R by his name or for Beta because the media licked his nutsack 24/7, so they thought he was cool. And by the way, that's fine because most of them are too dumb to know a good policy agenda if they saw one. However, the point is that they actually did care who was weird and who wasn't.

    Finally, I didn't vote for bonespur (again, because I didn't like significant parts of his policy agenda or likely policy agenda). I never cared that his wife posed nude 20 years ago. She's Slovenian, and that's part of being a model in Europe. And it just isn't that big of a deal to me. I live in Europe. I see naked women every time I get gas.

    I suppose that's a lot better than getting gas every time you see a naked woman.
