    Because if there's anything that says "best businessman ever", it's not caring about property you own in the state where property prices are sky-rocketing.

    CA gave HRC 62% of its popular and all its electoral votes, so the Child in Chief doesn't need CA. Presidential Pout.

    America is starting to resemble how things go when your favorite sports franchise, which was formerly a constant title contender, falls on a tough few years. Do you root for that 0-12 season so they clean house? We used to win championships, some mythical, some real, but now are we even a .500 team?

    Notre Dame is an 8-5 team with Brian Kelly at the helm. I'd rather go 2-10 -- or even 0-12 (the real 0-12 not the vacated wins 0-12) -- than muddle along. Is America even muddling along as a nation now? I guess even if we are, a hundred million idiots would still think we were great on one side of the ball and the other side is where we need to work out the problems.

    The Cleveland Browns kept their head coach despite a 1-31 record. Americans are just as stupid when it comes to our politicians, probably. trump's approval rating at the end of May was almost as high as it has been during his presidency and the likelihood of a Democratic takeover of congress, which looked certain in January looks like no more than a toss-up now. The problem with America being 0-12 or 0-16 though is that ain't just trade wars and recessions. That's a shooting war with the likes of China or Russia. Or with ourselves.

    Brit Hume of Fox News would like you all to know that what Roseanne Barr did and what Samantha Bee did are exactly the same. And that there is a double standard in America.

    ScoobyDoo would like you to know that of all conservatives in existence he finds Brit Hume one of the worst.

    trump's America. Mathew Martin's parents must be proud of the fine young man their son is turning out to be.

    If this story is accurate I dare anyone to try to convince me the world would not be better off if the roles had been reversed and Martin was the dead pedestrian after being struck by Sherell Lewis. Go ahead, convince me.

    It may be that he is unfit at an unprecedented level, but people still should express outrage and disgust at his childish behavior. Besides; I donít think he is trolling: this is who he is.

    The problem is Trump is the whacky coach who has come in after 15 losing seasons. He isnít the GM who screwed everything up. I agree he has done an awful job but people need to be careful blaming all our ills on him. There is major work that needs to be done after he is out of office and if people focus too much on him it will never get done.

    Are you equating the stewardship of GWB with that of Clinton and Obama?

    No. A lot of our problems, at least financially, have to do with congress. The president only has so much power, and much like a coach gets way too much credit both ways so does a president. Our country has completely gone off the rails this century and itís a lot more complicated than blaming one or even a handful of people. Society in general deserves a lot of blame for not paying attention and being disengaged.

    BC presided over that, but many argue that it was effectively dead already. Clinton also presided over some very damaging crime legislation, IMO.

    The "Three Strikes" was Clinton, IIRC. That backfired hardcore.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    A lot of bad foreign policy decisions have been made under pressure of fake patriotism, and a lot of bad domestic policy decisions have been made in the name of ''Fighting crime."

    It was a good idea in theory, but smaller crimes ended up putting people in prison, whereas they might have been better off going through probation/rehab/whatever, depending on that crime. There's a good documentary on Netflix about it, I'll see if I can find the info for it...

    "13th" is the documentary, and it's not all about the 3 Strikes law; it's more in-depth about the racial inequality of the US prison system; it DOES cover the 3 Strikes, and how that continued that inequality.

    And yet, you continue to support the party that votes for tax cuts and profligate spending, over the party of profligate spending and income sources to pay for it.
