re: CNN, NY Times, others blocked from WH Press gaggle - aggressor
[quote]quote: Sounds good to me. They want to attack a president, then they shouldn't have the ability to be there. It's pathetic that the media is so against the man who is the leader of our country. Traitor like mentalities that is actually put on tv. Do you really want a press corp that onl...

re: Who's watching the DNC freak show on CNN? - aggressor
Actually it's a win win for the GOP. Either you get the crazy, black power Muslim who the Bernie folks love but 75% of the country sees as a lunatic or you get the ultra liberal gay guy that isn't liberal enough for the Bernie voters and thus the DNC turns off the overwhelming majority of their bas...

re: Politico: Trump still beats Elizabeth Warren in 2020 - aggressor
[quote]I think one of Hickenlooper or Bullock jumps in to pitch themselves as the safe white guy. (Obviously this will be couched as "able to reach Trump voters" or something like that.)[/quote] If you think the Dems are going to the center for 2020 you haven't been paying attention. The base is...

re: Lincoln In American Memory - aggressor
FWIW, the whole point is that you are looking at and quoting only Lincoln centric or Union centric sources. There were a lot of people both North and South that felt differently as the vote of 1860 showed, it was an incredibly divided country and not just North/South or slave/no slave. There was a...

re: Lincoln In American Memory - aggressor
Oh, a book about Lincoln and his Cabinet. Well that changes everything. How about the fact Lincoln won the election with less than 40% of the popular vote and really had a very limited number of strongholds? He won because there were 5 candidates and the other 4 were on the other side of the issu...

re: Lincoln In American Memory - aggressor
What does a Lincoln quote have to do with why common people in the North served? Do you assume everyone felt as he did in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary? Your quote also ignores the fact the Southern states had grown far apart from the North and the North was furiously trying to ...

re: Lincoln In American Memory - aggressor
[quote]quote: If you look at the context of the 19th Century you realize that the reason the North opposed the South leaving had a hell of a lot more to do with Manifest Destiny and pride as much as anything else. Your whole note is a joke. The great influx of Union men into the federal ar...

re: Lincoln In American Memory - aggressor
[quote] Lincoln's death was a calamity for the South. Had he lived, there would have been no harsh reconstruction, and no resulting backlash that led to 90 years of Jim Crow.[/quote] Growing up I always admired Lincoln and believed him one of the greatest Presidents. That's what they always tol...

re: Sour Grapes Michael Sam Tells Bitter Sob Story - aggressor
Too small to be a DE, too slow to be an OLB. Hell he got a lot more of a shot than most. Even got drafted by St Louis which was terrible and would have loved a story to get a local kid on the team with all the surrounding pub. Making an NFL team is hard, DWI....

re: Texas Independent School District offering training on an exciting career... - aggressor
My HS had 592 of 600 people that went to college in my class and had a hairstyling class. Most of the girls (and one guy) that took it were using it as both a practical skill and as a job while in school. Cutting hair is a great way to pay for school and to make income. My sister in law went to c...

re: Trump to Mexican prez: take care of your bad hombres or my military might - aggressor
I bet it scared the crap out of the Mexican President though even though it was an obvious bluff. There is a lot to be said for being seen as a little crazy and unpredictable, especially when you have incredible power. Trump isn't stupid enough to actually do it but having Mexico think he might ha...

re: This tweet perfectly portrays liberal smugness - aggressor
This could really get ugly. Realize that Hillary was a mediocre debater as it was and she refused to go hard after Bernie because she didn't want to anger his supporters who she desperately needed. Bernie said a lot of really stupid crap that she just let go and that doesn't even consider the libe...

re: Trump sacks Chief of the Border Patrol - aggressor
The funny thing to me is the govt types live in their little bubble and think people will be outraged. The reality is that most of are thinking j"uh, hell yeah. If I was stupid enough to criticize my boss or employer publicly or go against policy they will fire me in a hearbeat. Why are govt work...

re: Trump’s First Budget May Zero Out Federal Transit Funding - aggressor
The only folks who care about Federal Transit Funding are folks on the East Coast and in a few urban areas, all of which are deep blue. The DC/Philly/NYC Amtrak train must be subsidized by the rest of us so liberals can have cheaper train rides. The media uses the crap out of it because they don't...

re: Under Trump, Blue and Red state divisions deepen - aggressor
The divide has been very deep for a long time, it's just the folks on the left and the MSM just ignored half the country. It still boggles me when MSM and folks on the left talk about Obama as this uplifting force that everyone was hopeful and excited about. You would think after a few blowout ele...

re: re Jimmy Carter's age--has any President lived 36 years after leaving office? - aggressor
He is the longest living after leaving office, Hoover was the previous record holder at just short of 31 years. I guess crappy one term Presidents at least get to live a long time afterwards....
