Tuesday Open Thread

    1. Win.

      Current polling would have Trump beating Hillary by about 3 points.  As the Dems move further and further to the left and throw away the middle, they have even less of a base which they consistently fail to turn out.

      1. White House: Government Shutdown Possible If Democrats Keep Hurting Trump’s Feelings

        Weird. Trump doesn’t like it when people spike the football.

        Democrats have made clear that they are very happy with the spending deal and that they, not Trump, are the winners. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called it a “defeat” for Trump, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) gloated, “I think we had a strategy and it worked.” 

        This outcome has made Trump, who prides himself on being the best negotiator ever, incredibly angry. On Tuesday, he took to Twitter and threatened a “good” shutdown in September: 

      2. You mean the polling showing Trump with the worst approval rating in history?.  Kissee kissee trump butt, shill boy must earn his pay. Or do you mean the pictures showing the largest crowd in history at his inaugural?   

        Kissee kissee, Trump butt, shill boy must earn his pay.  I sense our first rap opera coming on boardsmiley

  1. 9 News is reporting that the Firestone explosion was caused by the nearby extraction apparatus.

    A cut, abandoned gas line leading to a nearby well cause a deadly home explosion in Firestone April 17, investigators announced Tuesday afternoon.

    Ted Poszywak, chief of the Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District, said the cut line allowed unrefined, odorless gas to enter the home through a French drain and a sump pit in the basement.

    1. Interesting.  Natural gas is usually odorless from the well.  The smell you associiate with it is added by public service as a safety device.   

      1. If true, wonder what liability the developer will have for building and selling homes that close to an existing well? 

        1. Good question.  The well owner, Anadarko, and the land use authority, probably the county, may also be liable.   The lawyers love this stuff.

  2. Oh, boy.  PeePee, can you fruitsplain' this one?  A senior advisor to the Republican President of the United States of Merrika is in debt to GEORGE SOROS?!?!

    Jared Kushner didn't disclose business ties to George Soros, Peter Thiel, and Goldman Sachs, or that he owes $1 billion in loans

    The top White House adviser and son-in-law of Trump failed to identify his part ownership of Cadre, a real-estate startup he founded, which links him to the Goldman Sachs Group and the mega-investors George Soros and Peter Thiel, sources told The Journal.

    Kushner also failed to identify debt of more than $1 billion from 20 lenders and personal guarantees to pay more than $300 million of that, according to The Journal.

  3. This is bloody terrifying.

    Trump's "confused mental state"….it's like he "doesn't remember what he said 5 minutes ago".

    Scarborough, Morning Joe 5/2/17: My mother has had dementia for ten years….that sounds like something she would say (Couldn't the Civil War have been avoided? Couldn't "that one"  have been worked out?)

    And this is the President who has expressed admiration for Putin, invited Phillipine murderer Duterte to visit, has said it "would be an honor" to meet with Kim Jong Un.

    Bring on the 25th amendment. Impeachment will take too long.

    1. Did not his doctor say he was on Propecia which explains the beautiful luster in his hair? It does have two side effects: causes dementia and E.D.

      1. Yes. I think that we're seeing the "brain fog" side effect of Propecia. Coupled with his odd affinity for short, murderous autocrats, I think that we're in trouble, and I hope that the nuclear codes have a fail-safe.

        1. There is precedent….

          During Nixon's final days, Def Sec Schlesinger, Al Haig and Gerald Ford had an understanding that if  any unusual military orders were issued, they would not go down the chain of command unless Ford approved of them as well.
