  1. Wait, let me guess. You didn't vote for him.
  2. I just think he has atrocious communication skills, no malice intended. I do find this heartless: General Kelly has been very private about his son's death in combat. Trump just throws out a reference to him, of course trying to smear Obama. Grotesque. http://www.politico.com/story/2017/10/17/trump-obama-military-calls-john-kelly-son-243863
  3. So they had it comin' huh? Bet you have a US flag decal on your car, and consider yourself a true Patriot.
  4. When the people on the ground are incompetent, and that incompetence is causing US citizens to die? Yes. And he wouldn't have to personally do anything. Pick up the damn phone and order the military to start transporting these patients. He's the CIC. Is the PR army going to stop them? Pretty sure the PR people wouldn't object to saving lives. "U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, like Trump a Republican, had earlier called for the appointment of a single authority to oversee all hurricane relief efforts, and said the Defense Department should mostly be in charge." "The full weight of the United States government is engaged to ensure that food, water, healthcare and other life-saving resources are making it to the people in need," Sanders told reporters. That full weight isn't what it used to be, huh? He seems to have plenty of time to micro-manage NFL players' behavior on the field. But this, oh noes, hands off!
  5. The person who wrote the article identified where some of the people in need are, very close to where the ship is. And the governor confirmed it's a bureaucracy problem. "CNN asked Gov. Ricardo Rosselló why so many are in need of help and yet a ship with operating rooms and intensive care units sits nearly empty. "The disconnect or the apparent disconnect was in the communications flow," Rosselló said. He acknowledged that the system must get better." Trump can't overrule the PR Health Dept? To cut through red tape? Well sure, I can see that, we know what a stickler for protocol he is. I don't care who is to blame. But US citizens in danger of dying when aid is near? My God.
  6. You're missing the point while people are desperate for medical they could get ON THE COMFORT. I don't defend the PR authorities. But Jesus can't the FEMA command or military command on the ground, or yes Trump, just step in and says this is what were going to do? Trump likes to pound his chest over his power, well hells bells, use it!
  7. http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/16/health/puerto-rico-hospital-ship/index.html This is unbelievable. Somebody has to step up!
  8. Don't seem to recall journalists having a problem with Clinton and Monica? And who broke the Hillary email server story? Pretty sure the NYT.
  9. So Trump was asked about McCain's thinly veiled criticism of him last night. His response: "Yeah, well I hear it. And people have to be careful because at some point I fight back," Trump said. "I'm being very nice. I'm being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won't be pretty." Responding to Trump's threat, McCain bluntly told reporters Tuesday: "I've faced far greater challenges than this." It's actually comical. What exactly does Trump think he can do to an 80 year old man facing a fatal form of brain cancer? What a dolt. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2017/10/17/politics/trump-john-mccain-feud/index.html
  10. Goal accomplished for employer based plans. Individuals getting screwed. You know what would help that? A public option. https://www.forbes.com/sites/robbmandelbaum/2017/02/24/no-obamacare-hasnt-jacked-up-your-companys-insurance-rates/#11f5dd023a01
  11. Exactly. Not to mention worker replacement issues. It's the continued denial of facts that typifies Trump supporters and apologists.
  12. Why don't you expand on your profound insights--that "lefties" bit, whoa--and see if you can get into the running for the literature prize?
  13. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/stuartanderson/2017/10/08/immigrants-keep-winning-nobel-prizes/amp/ The beauty of being a nation of immigrants!
  14. I think the point is, were he a top notch QB all this angst would likely disappear. Meaning it's not a matter of principle with these owners, rather a simple risk analysis. Still think someone might pick him up. There are a number of teams for whom K would be an upgrade at QB--this is a bad year for that position.
