There are 57.5 million Hispanic’s in the US. A few of them might not be big fans of a giant “burning cross” being constructed by their government.

My dad buys those horrible grifter books "written" by O'Reilly and the like and actually reads them and tries to hand them down to me after. Life is rough.

I'd like to welcome those people from citizenship-limbo with a big hug.

Like Lamar in Revenge of the Nerds after his triumph in the javelin event of the Greek Games was enveloped in the congratulatory arms of his fratmates.

AOC is just the beginning of the younger generation entering politics. Wait til the Parkland age crowd gets involved. GOP is done. No wonder they cramming in judges and SCOTUS frat bros. Only way they can stay relevant.

I love AOCs “**** you, I am a young smart woman” attitude.

AOC is the 2019 version of 1953 JFK.

No way, Paul Ryan's message of "we've been dreaming about this since we were doing keg stands in college" as he signs in a tax cut bill is totally gonna resonate with the kids

Bill Ackmam is an insufferable POS but he was right about Herbalife. LOL @ one of these Ayn Rand douchebags losing money because the regulators didn’t do their job.

A certain man had two sons. And one day the younger of these sons said to his father, "Give me my share of your estate now." So his father divided his wealth between his two sons. And a few days later this younger son set off for a distant land. And there he pawned 'See, I Told You So' by Rush Limbaugh to better indulge his riotous living.

But didn't you just say earlier that term limits actually make it more likely to be beholden to special interests:

So the positions with "power concentrated" should get term limits to make them MORE susceptible to special interests?

Schlitz mmmm,

I'm glad you like that photo, but I'm going to go ahead and give you 20 infraction points for posting a doctored, inappropriate and trolling photo in the trump thread. Don't do it again.

Guess I'm just glad it took this long for Trump to start thinking of just doing everything he wants to anyway.

Also did not know about 2.2% out there :/

This can’t go on for months

Airports will shut down at some point when TSA and Air Traffic Controllers stop coming into work without getting paid

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

yeah, at some point these employees are going to strike. I get that it’s technically illegal but i fail to see any court enforcing that against them when they’re not getting paid which is also probably in violation of several statutes.

Aren't the courts that would enforce this closed also anyway?

I'm not sure about this. Could be wrong.

This.

I know we're all probably on the spectrum here but I think some people's lack of empathy is showing even above that.

I practice in federal court and all cases in my district are stayed. No idea if this applies to all districts or just mine.

I'd jump in a pool fully clothed for $100, as long as I can dumpoff my iphone, wallet and car keys first. And I hate money.

Well as long as it's not -5, I have a change of clothes available, etc. But $1000 removes all realistic restrictions.

My Mom kept trying to convince to read the latest Killing [blank] book by O'Reilly for about a decade then finally gave up.
