    Could there be another round of big and beautiful tax cuts on the horizon…..

    I'm guessing the House Ways & Means Committee will say "No."

    So, the draft dodger president hates war heros.  What a surprise.  But a release of his records shows Trump wasn't 4F because of bone spurs.  He had an advanced case of Spinal Jaundice.

    The main symptom is a big yellow stripe down his back.

    He wasn't the only one. There was no heroism in dying in a jungle in Vietnam. Many of us worked to avoid being drafted. When I got 80 in the lottery, I was very unhappy and worried.

    I don't fault The Dumpster® for avoidance, but for his cheating to achieve it.

      I don't blame you or anyone else who dodged the draft.  But this coward goes on to  vilify those who did their duty, including the bravest of the brave, John McCain. For that he can kiss my E-5 ass.

    Pierre don’t know tRump . . . 

    . . . or Cory Gardner even.

    Both have demonstrated time and again that, today, memory is replaceable by even more lying. 

    Lying is only a problem in that quaint past world that valued accountability. Apparently we’re too busy listening to liars’ newest lies, today, to have any time for that?

    WOTD from Boulder: "Building Electrification Initiative".

    Boulder has developed a sophisticated system capable of producing an hourly energy model for every single-family detached residence in the city. This system can be used to create a customized “Roadmap to Renewable Living,” a comprehensive household energy assessment and transition plan. This gives participating households options for full home electrification, which includes energy efficiency, electric vehicle acquisition, on-site solar, and electrification of heating.

    Yeah, I know, "Roadmap to Renewable Living" equals stalinism.

  6. Voyageur says:

    You obviously don't know Uncle Joe, Parkie.  He was big on centralized power. 112, the seizure of 85 percent of coloradan’s mineral rights without compensation, was Stalinism. What Boulder is trying to do is just American ingenuity.

    Local boy makes good!

    On Tuesday, Sanders announced that he has hired David Sirota,

  8. DaftPunk says:

    Sirota is not a local.

    He's a carpetbagger purity pony who moved here and proceeded to tell everyone here how we were doing it wrong.

    He's also got some really stupid ideas about how Romney would have been no different from Obama on judicial appointments, and how Hugo Chavez was awesome. Sirota is intellectually dishonest on race, civil liberties, and is quick to dishonestly attack the messenger when called out.

    Most succinctly:

    Fuck Glenn Greenwald and David Sirota. Fuck them because their opinions don't deserve to be taken the least bit seriously. Their supposedly bottomless reservoir of intellectual honesty is really puddle-deep and, in fact, they're nothing more than what their fiercest critics have always accused them of being: sanctimonious jokes who pretend to be dedicated, indignant fighters of all manner of civil liberties injustices when in reality they've bequeathed to themselves wide latitude to choose which sins to prosecute and which to forgive or overlook completely.

    Testing comment functions. Some users were unable to comment this morning after an update; the problem appears to be resolved.

  10. Voyageur says:

    Alva, what happens if we can post again but the comments are stupid?  Uhhh, asking for a friend…

    Hick is on CNN doing Town Hall…..

    And he’s telling about the time he took his mother to see Deep Throat.
