And other people like us we gotta go on TV and deny that racism is still a problem.
I think Billy took the "You better hit her" line from "There She Goes" a bit literal in his marriage.
We reach the parts other combos cannot reach
We beach the beachheads other armies cannot beach
We speak the tongues other mouths cannot speak

Hoo, just watch me now.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

TrumpCare is almost amusingly deranged. As I commented to KP on Facebook, it's like a parody you'd invent of what a Republican health care bill would be. Hard to see how it gets the votes to pass (although in this political climate, lord knows).

I'll never get why Repubs don't just copy Singapore's health care system for their initial proposal. For whatever reason, conservatives seem to find it acceptable and it actually has some merit as a system. You probably couldn't end up passing it, but start from a point where you'd have some political capital to spend.

(Of course, I'd make the same argument to Dems on single-payer, so obviously no one is listening to me.)

Obamacare has always been time bomb for the Republicans, exposing the deep divisions within the party and the fundamental intellectual bankruptcy of conservative politics. Demonizing what was already a basically Republican (pre-Obama) type of plan for the sake of agitating the base was always a suicide pill if they ever found themselves in power, either forcing them to renege and be exposed as corrupt or inept political hacks or see it thru and make their base realize how precarious their medical situation is. Apocalyptic tactics only work if you know there's no tomorrow; suddenly, these assholes have realized that the sun came up and they're standing in a burning building of their own design. But that's what you get when you treat politics and governance so cynically.

It's been said many times before, even by me, but there's no room for parody on the planet any more.

The legislature then voted to declare him a Democrat, followed by a round of condemning typical liberal behaviour, then cancelling all children's aid.

Seems like a good strategy for dealing with people whose entire existence is founded in being obstructionist.

Sorry, Wally, I don't know his position on sheep freelove...but I can happily say I voted against this turd twice and that he's probably dumb enough to get bitten by some poisonous fauna while getting off the plane on first visit to your whimsical land.

It's a bold election-closing move, punching a guy with glasses. Let's see how this plays out.
