    115th Congress. In Bridge, Can Hearts be Trumped? In Spades!

    Less than a month to go.

    Meanwhile, Chuck "I love TV" Schumer has fired almost all of tbe Senate's Democrat TV staff. Apparently the message was not received. Merry Christmas!

    Subscribed because this Congress will decide how many decades we set ourselves back.

    I wouldn't trust the fake news, "authorized" by the NDAA by repealing Smith-Mundt.

    The test comes when it's over killing Medicare or Social Security, because AFAIK Trump doesn't support, and may actively oppose, that. Are the anarchists really going to follow his lead against something the GOP movement conservatives have been dreaming of for 50 years?

    Trump has stated in interviews since the election that he opposes repealing Obamacare, but thinks it needs some tweaks. And as we all know, that man's word is worth his weight in gold.

    Check the foreign policy thread. Unfortunately the answer is yes.

    Cruz wants to drain the swamp with term limits, I'd love to see it but we all know that is going nowhere. And yes I know we have term limits, its called voting but we also know your guy sucks and mine is great so we keep electing them no matter what. Call it saving us from ourselves
    I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.

    Saw Schumer and Bernie on Maddow last night. They're going to fight. Schumer even hinted that no Supreme Court Justice will be seated by the Orange Babboon.

    If that's the route they take, then they will get crushed. And frankly, I'm with Kep on this. Don't pull the same crap republicans did.
