    I think Grenell will be the first openly gay person to hold a cabinet level position
    But of course the media is looking at that

    (I dont think Shalala was open. Reno denied it)

    If it were me, I would make it clear that if they participate in the same type of thing again, we are not going to invade a second time. Instead we are just going to flatten the place, without warning

    This chart is good at showing the changes among labor force dropouts. Under Obama, there was some peaking in long-term unemployment. But Trump has changed all that. Among the standouts is a massive improvement with the disabled. About a third of new hires are coming from the ranks of people previously non-employed due to disability.

    Sotomayor accusing people of doing what she is guilty of, ruling based on policy preference rather than law.

    Trade needs to be more and more universal, then supply disruptions and restricting trade with bad actors is less of a problem.

    Am I incorrect in thinking the US government encouraged and directly worked on developing trade with China?

    Yep. Her entire judicial philosophy is based on doing what she accuses them if doing.

    I was there in mid-December. Amazing place. The Agra fort was just as impressive.

    I wonder if I could dig up an article that says suicide rates among helicopter manufacturers are at an all time high.

    Give hope a chance. If this can work on your children, it might have worked on this POTUS.

    “The exercise stuff never took off as much as I wanted it to,” he said. “But we were working on his diet. We were making the ice cream less accessible, we were putting cauliflower into the mashed potatoes.”

    Trump doctor hid cauliflower in mashed potatoes to improve diet: report

    Give this man your money! Ronny Jackson is running for a seat in Congress for Texas’s 13th District, one of the most conservative districts in the country, to replace retiring Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas)

    Cruz explains it to Sonia
    "“If you look to the facts of what’s happening with nationwide injunctions, I think it will explain why the Department of Justice has had to ask the Supreme Court to intervene over and over again,” Cruz said.
    Cruz noted that one-third of all nationwide injunctions have come from California courts, and that two-thirds of the states have not produced any.

    “So you have a handful of courts that are driving this," he said.

    Cruz also pointed to the disparity between the number of nationwide injunctions granted against the Trump administration compared with previous administrations.

    “In the eight years of the George W. Bush administration, district courts issued a total of 12 universal injunctions against the Bush administration,” he said. "In the eight years of the Obama administration, district courts issued 19 universal injunctions against the Obama administration. In just three years of the Trump administration, we have already had 55 national universal injunctions issued against the federal government."

    Cruz defended the Justice Department, stating that the administration is fighting back against activist judges who are trying to interfere with politics."

    I cannot say for certain this is due to the USMCA but it seems like it is -- the cost of avocados has come way down. I bought some for 17 cents a piece yesterday. I cannot recall them being that low in a long time.

    She has got to be the worst SCOTUS Justice ever. She is so incredibly racist. Her entire being is her race. It's incredible that Obama chose her. That is why I will vote for Trump. We ABSOLUTELY can never pick another Sotomayor for our court again. She is just a big-mouth activist. She has zero sense of dignity as a jurist. She is only there as a quota hire and to protect HER PEOPLE which are not the American people. Only a sub-set.

    It would be game over. I'm a one trick pony at this point. A decisive Conservative majority on SCOTUS. PERIOD. Let Congress deal with "democracy." The Court must only rule on the law. PERIOD.

    I like saying PERIOD.
