  1. Golfboy believes He still believes in his golden god, who cheats at home, who cheats abroad, who will not call the righteous friends, and flatters vicious enemies, and only pursues greedy ends, and will betray the very ones that offer troth. When the edifice of falseness falls, who will the cheater blame to save his skin? Here's another query: Malicious? or merely mercenary? Both, I think. I think it's both.
  2. On McConnell: one phone call between the president and the Kentucky Republican devolved into a "profane shouting match." Trump has made and continues to make enemies of everyone. In a government where anything you want to do requires cooperation, he's guaranteed that he won't get cooperation. He is already a failure.

    Well said, Skewsie-Q. Continuing the pattern of failure, he can't appoint people who stick because he's a poor judge of character. Gone are these appointees: Steve Bannon, Anthony Scaramucci, Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer, Michael Dubke, Michael Short, Katie Walsh, and Michael Flynn. He also alienated good people into resigning, or fired them, people who were holdovers from previous administrations. Gone are: Preet Bharara, Sally Yates, James Comey, and Walter Shaub.

But ... he thinks ... since he's going to keep it all secret, he'll claim victory no matter what. His problem is that the news will be all over it. It will be publicized and it will be on film. And even Fox News will have that film and show it.
  4. Yes indeed, Wernher Von Braun, and 1600 other German engineers and scientists. He was instrumental for WWII Germany (military V-2 rockets) and for the American space program (Saturn V rockets). In case you don't know this, in the 1960s, the mathematician and comedic singer/pianist Tom Lehrer wrote and played a song about Wernher Von Braun:
  5. Hatred of Jews, Blacks, and gays. Possibly hated of other races too. Hated of liberals. Stupidity.
  6. Pot killed their son

    Scientists go by facts not by safe political responses. Quoting a pro-pot advocacy group doesn't prove anything.
  7. Hmmm. I think they is teaming up because they is all on the same page, ancestrally. They have a common goal, to end all Jewbilation and then to to get rid of "all highly rhythmic individuals and sissy boys". That goal has done nearly suck-ceded once, in a country much more educated and cultured than this one is edjimacated and kkkultured. We got a lot of good refugees out of that: Albert Einstein Walter Kohn Enrico Fermi Robert and Ugo Fano ... and many others. If the Knazis and KKonfederates and KKKrowd can suck-cess, I'm sure Germany will get back lots of refugees and refujeesiz to replace the ones they lost 80 years ago. And of course England will get a bunch too.

    Are you sure it's not ancestrally arriving into separated biological collectives of life-sustaining orders? And if so, how can you tell, bot?
  9. Pot killed their son

    So guns don't kill people, but pot does? I'd bet that a kid that would steal his father's car is already well on the road to a bad end. Pot was just another pebble on that road.
  10. Pot killed their son

    Your link is broken. Here's a better one: https://www.today.com/health/family-believes-marijuana-killed-their-healthy-son-t115183 For the record, I'm not for recreational pot, but I'm ok with medical pot. Even recreational marijuana (while probably not good for you) isn't the end of the world. From the article: "But the medical examiner said he cannot say for sure whether cannabis was involved in Michael's sudden death and notes there’s little evidence about what marijuana does or doesn’t do to the heart." So while I'm certain that smoking marijuana has ill effects, your assertion that it killed the young man in this case is unsupported. What we have here is correlation: he smoked pot. He had heart problems. He died. Correlation is not causation. On the other hand, I'd have strongly advised him against smoking pot, especially with a pre-existing heart problem.

    Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?
  12. RIP Jerry Lewis

    Spoken a true AI bot.
  13. RIP Jerry Lewis

    You are one sick AI-bot. He raised hundreds of millions of dollars for a cure. By the way, he was a Trump supporter. No-one's perfect.
  14. RIP Jerry Lewis

    He was emotionally affected by the children with muscular distrophy, that's clear. He hosted the telethon for 44 years, 1966 to 2010. That's a long time, and he was old and sick at the end. He never said why he was so involved with that particular disease. If I'm permitted a thought, it's this: maybe it started as a good career move, and then the emotional reality sunk in: what the disease did to children, and whether it might not be cured.
  15. RIP Jerry Lewis

    The modern cinema originator of this style of comedy was Charlie Chaplin. The influence of Lewis's comedic style can be seen in Jim Carrey and Rowan Atkinson's "Mr. Bean".
