    Disagreeing with it is one thing; not even comprehending it another.

    It's similar to going to the super bowl and cheering for a team that didn't make the playoffs.[/quote]

    It's not really very similar to that, but if we're gonna with that, then what you've advocated is like rooting for a team you dislike, just to get to say "I cheered for the team that won".

    Close, but not quite on point. You root for the team you dislike the least. It is being pragmatic vs idealistic.

    Deez.
    Most everything is the same. Or will be the same in a few years. Republicans are already starting to talk about energy policy that would be their Green New Deal light.

    So if you don't like what Ds are doing. Vote for a R and get something very similar in 5 years.

    Yes. But Trump has been better on this than establishment Rs. He is also better on environmental regulations. He is worse on trade. If he abolishes some FDA regulations permanently, that would be better too. The only other Rs that would do that are Cruz, Paul, Lee, and Massey.

    Like I said wait 5 years and see where the Rs are these things. But your point stands. I have never voted for a D and never will.

    Garmel, the media has shown themselves over the last 3 years to be liars, even when trying to point out Trump's lies. You can't ever trust them. They will twist any fact about a news story to try to push a policy or ideological point. They are the enemy of the people.

    A few points in my defense. First, I grew up in Dallas, not Austin and didn't go to UT, so I wasn't really in tune with the Aggieness problem. In fact I really figured it out from her dragging me to a few games at Kyle Field where I saw their idiocy firsthand. Second, I hadn't dated anyone in a few years (after having to break up with a big boobed woman that I really adored), so I was a bit off my game. Third, she said the "right things," had a nice bod, and was a bit a freak (I still have a scar on my back 13 years later - no ****.), and I was still pretty young and hormone-raged. I was admittedly pretty "bootie-blind" and therefore willing to overlook some things. I'm not saying I did the right thing. I should have had better judgment. I'm just saying that it wasn't as crazy of a call as it seems, and I'll bet most of the men here have shown worse judgment.

    If you have anything specific, I'm open to looking at it, but I haven't seen anything from the GOP that remotely resembles the Green New Deal.

    I don't think the GOP will move hard left on social issues. It's the big way in which they distinguish themselves from Democrats, and it's how they win in swing states. If they ever do, it'll only be because conservatives have failed in the battle of ideas. At the end of the day, the GOP is a political party dedicated to winning. It's up to conservative advocates (including politicians, think tanks, and citizens) to make their case to the public. They haven't done a good job for the last 25 years.

    I absolve you. I also dated a few aggie wimmen back in the day. It was never very serious or long-term (The longest I ever made it with a woman was about 4 months before I met my wife of 27 years) but I know I was relieved when it was over because I would no longer have to make nice when they would talk about or partake in aggie things. Still, a$m has some hot women, so I get it.

    I'm sure we would have been tight if we had met up while I was still at 3M.

    Phil, when did you leave 3M and where did you work?

    We had some good political debates in the abandoned halls in the old building.

    We are in a new place now and there are too many people around to do that kind of thing.

    Thank you. My Aggie fling lasted about 4 months. I met Mrs. Deez very soon after it was over, and the Aggie experience definitely made my appreciate her more. I remember thinking,"wow. She's so intelligent, stable, and and mature."

    And of course, Mrs. Deez is three years younger (28 rather than 31), and though she has a Master's degree, the Aggie was working on her Ph.D. She should have been smarter and more mature, but Aggieness trumps all of that. Even an older, well-educated Aggie is as dumb as a box of rocks and as mature 12 year old girl.

    Is it "Mrs. Deez" or "Mrs. 'Mr. Deez' "? This is very confusing.

    Horn6721 Half of seeming clever is keeping your mouth shut.

    I just watched the presser. It really is remarkable how private enterprise was able and willing to step up. People who have never managed a business do not understand what is involved in pivoting. The CEOs were amazing in how they have changec their companies to make product the medical people need.
    The news on the malaria meds becoming more available for the virus was encouraging.
    But the best part if the presser? It was the way Trump handled Acosta and 2 others who tried to do a gotcha on Trump.

    That may be an insult to the box of rocks.

    No patient that’s treated on USNS Comfort will have to pay anything

    I would argue Rachael Madcow should not be admitted on that ship under any circumstances

    And you know if Hillary was in charge, she would only be talking about government "solutions".

    They want more checks, and they want to exploit it for the next election. It'll literally be vote buying.

    When will the American public learn, that printing money doesn't help anything!!!

    Even if you get a $1000 check, it won't help anything!!!

    Did someone take Jim Acosta out back last night? Dare I say he was actually respectful to Trump today.
