re: In 2018, which seats are up for grabs? - Eurocat
I didn't take his post to mean "up for election" I took it to mean "up for a surpise, up for a party switch, up for an upset, etc". Everyone knows every House seat is up every two years....

re: Trump is our ONLY HOPE - Eurocat
Every day at lunch, a handful of teenagers in Frisco, Tex., would pop into room C112, face a whiteboard and kneel for one of their five daily prayers. It was just a spare classroom, used for everything from teachers’ grading to Buddhist meditation, school officials say. But Muslims at Liberty Hig...

re: Trump reduced the debt by 100 billion in his 1st 2 months. - Eurocat
This is probably the best book I have read about Obamas first year in office and it explains why infrastructure spending would not have accomplished much. Give it a read when you get a chance. Put simply the reason he didn't do infrastructure is that it would have taken four years or so to get up...

re: Trump is our ONLY HOPE - Eurocat
And what will we do when in some of the more Muslim communities of America the schools will want prayer rugs and bowing towards Mecca and all that? It could very well happen in parts of NY, Chicago, Detroit, even Houston. The heck with all that. Keep schools neutral places of schooling, not place...

re: The Judicial Branch needs to be brought to heel - Eurocat
So......why was the right wing so hopeful that the Supreme Court would overturn Obamacare and "make things right again"? Seems like courts suck when they rule against you, but they are the best things ever if they rule in your favor....

re: The Real Danger - Bernie Sanders - Eurocat
[quote]But he's for "equality" and "tolerance" and everyone getting their "fair share". He's not about making the US better for everyone. He's for turning everyone into a number that mindlessly relies on the Federal government and worships the collective.[/quote] You write that as thought that ...

re: The Real Danger - Bernie Sanders - Eurocat
I just finished reading his book Our Revolution and I must say there is nothing particulary objectionable in it. A fair days pay for a fair days work, Health Care for all. College and worker training for those who want it, Child Care. Regulation of our banking sector - no more 2008 co...

re: Let's talk about military spending - Eurocat
But we could not meet our Asian obligations. The reason America kicks arse in so many things is that we are - America. I mean sometimes it is said as a joke on this boad but there is a lot of truth to the sentiment 'Murica damnit. The world always wants (or will get, want it or not) a world ...

re: Let's talk about military spending - Eurocat
For one, we have told Japan that we do not want them to. This was US policy (still is). Seriously, how can you blame Japan for this? We also wanted to keep Germany weak so we have more or less the same deal there, but now in one fell swoop Trump starts complaining about, it is insane and un...

re: Let's talk about military spending - Eurocat
Yeah, telling our allies in Europea, Japan and Korea that, meh you know, we are bored with you, so, screw you, yeah, that will really be great for US interests. Because after all, nothing is less important than American strength in the world and goddamn we need some tax cuts so I can buy cable. ...
