Re: “Seeds of Conflict

All laws, whether by legislation, or initiative, have unintended consequences, and need tweaking. The problem with a citizen's initiative such as this, is that it, for the most, would be unfixable by the legislature.
IMHO, this is something that should be done by legislation rather than by initiative.

I have no skin in this game, however, because as a CCP holder, I am forbidden the use.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: A Nationals Impeachment

How about the odds of getting a conviction in the senate? Had the democrats had done their constitutional duty in 1998 al gore would have become president and no dubya ;but instead played partizan politics with women in the feminist movement demanding they wanted oral sex with bubba. Now they hippocritically ask republicans to do their duty.

Re: “Danehy

Great job by Danehy, must have been hard for him. One comment needs more thought. "all racists are Trump voters". Maybe all white male racists are Trump voters. That way we don't insult those who are racist but have a different target.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Yippee Ki-Yay Rudy

groves you forgot to mention that biden/bhr used the commie money to buy defense contractor cnc. which is now being prosecuted for giving defense secrets to china. james biden got a contract of over a billion dollars to do construction in iraq while qid pro quo joe was in charge of iraq for obama. also hunter was getting 4100,000 salary from MBNA while father joe was pushing anti-consumer legislation that would help MBNA

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Yippee Ki-Yay Rudy

I have to agree with him.

"MBNA was one of the most powerful corporations in Delaware, a state with no shortage of major companies thanks to its lax tax and regulatory approach, and has since been absorbed by Bank of America. Biden in the 1990s was known half-jokingly as the senator from MBNA, though he didnt find it funny. Im not the senator from MBNA, he said in 1999."

This is a lot of smoke for no fire.

Hunter Bidens transparent cashing-in on his name was becoming a political liability for his father, so Joe Biden pushed him to find non-lobbying work, Anthony Lotito, a New York financial adviser, said in a complaint he filed in a New York state court. (James and Hunter, in a separate filing, denied that Joe Biden had made the call to Lotito.)

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Yippee Ki-Yay Rudy

I don't know why the ill informed like cap always say Hunter had no experience in business, he's actually quite a lot. Note that Caps income figures are far higher than the reality. But the fringe elements never really get into facts.
'After graduating from law school, Biden took a position at MBNA America, a major bank holding company which was also a major contributor to his father's political campaigns. By 1998, he had risen to the rank of executive vice president.[4] From 1998 to 2001, he served in the United States Department of Commerce, focusing on ecommerce policy.[16] Biden became a lobbyist in 2001, co-founding the firm of Oldaker, Biden & Belair.[17] According to Adam Entous of The New Yorker, Biden and his father established a relationship in which "Biden wouldn't ask Hunter about his lobbying clients, and Hunter wouldn't tell his father about them."[4] In 2006, Biden and his uncle, James Biden, attempted to buy Paradigm, a hedge-fund group, but the deal fell apart before completion.[4] That same year, Biden was appointed by President George W. Bush to the board of directors of Amtrak; he was on the board of Amtrak from 2006 to 2009.[16]
After his father was elected as vice president in 2008, Biden resigned from his position on the Amtrak board of directors and left his career as a lobbyist.[4] Along with Christopher Heinz, stepson of John Kerry, and Devon Archer, Biden founded the investment firm Rosemont Seneca.[17]

He also became an attorney with the law firm Boies Schiller Flexner LLP,[4] and founded Eudora Global, a venture capital firm.[15]

In 2013, Biden, Devon Archer, and Chinese businessman Jonathan Li founded BHR Partners, a business focused on investing Chinese capital in companies based outside of China.[4] In September 2019, President Trump falsely claimed that Biden "walk[ed] out of China with $1.5 billion in a fund" and earned "millions" of dollars from the BHR deal, while Trump was also accusing Biden of malfeasance in Ukraine.[20][21] Trump publicly called on China to investigate Hunter Biden's business activities there while his father was vice president.[22][23] On October 13, 2019, citing "the barrage of false charges" by the President, Hunter Biden announced his resignation from the Board of Directors for BHR Partners effective at the end of the month.[24][25] According to his lawyer, Biden had "not received any compensation for being on BHR's board of directors," nor had he received any return on his equity share in BHR.[26] Biden's lawyer, George Mesires, told The Washington Post that BHR Partners had been "capitalized from various sources with a total of 30 million RMB [Chinese Renminbi], or about $4.2 million, not $1.5 billion."[20]

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Yippee Ki-Yay Rudy

Clinton news network asked biden soft ball questions in debate. everybody else got tough questions except tulsi gabbard who kept getting shut out. she is the only one on that stage who could slug it out with drumpf in debate. the media pulled the same stunt with clinton during the primary.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Shep Ditches Shemps

Google is your friend beneal. The US copied the retirement program from capitalist Germany that was established in 1899 to stave off radical socialist ideas. Because the collections flow into the general fund we have no idea how bankrupt these two ponzi schemes are.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Shep Ditches Shemps

Robert C, for your information it was the Republicans that fought health care till they made it a shell of what it was intended to do. Germany has had Universal Health Care since 1885 and the U.S. can't get it's shyt together enough to do anything. Republicans managed to convince their brain-free minions that free health care was bad for them and all that had to add was that Hillary Clinton wanted it for them. Also if you expect to receive Social Security then you are a part of Socialism. If your parents or relatives receive S.S. then you know that Socialism has aspects that can benefit a Democracy.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Shep Ditches Shemps

Let's call progressives what they really are. They are socialists leaning towards communism. That is the main reason Trump is going to be re-elected. I have nobody else to support. Now I understand why gun rights folks will not negotiate with democrats. Everything is incrementalism. Just look at the mess they made out of health care. And now they promise to make it worse.

Hunter biden interveiw: "why no I didn't know anything about oil or gas! I was still totally qualified to sit on the board of burisma!" ( $600,000 a year) As for 1.5 billion I got from communist china glad you didn't ask.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Shep Ditches Shemps

Calling real documented news fake doesn't make it so. Saying bidens have been totally investigated and exonerated by liberal establishment media is fake news. ( they pulled the same stunt with clinton in 2016 ) brian williams admitted after the election they were politically correct with clinton and wouldn't admit how she was hated as much as trump. Groves you, the establishment media and dnc just like in 2016 say we have no choice but vote for who ever they try and foist on us like qid pro quo joe biden. 2016 many democrats and more independents hated corrupt hillary as much as they hated trump. I like 1.5 million democrats voted for jill stein costing hillary mi., pa. and wi. Another 6 million democrats stayed home who voted in 2012. In detroit 70,000 voters voted down ballot ;but left presidential ballot blank. If the dnc puts up qid pro quo joe after putting up corrupt hillary we will do so again. Unlike you and the clintonistas we don't hate trump we just dislike some of his actions like what he has done with migrant children is an abomination. Remember base will not except a corrupt corporate establishment candidate but moderate wing of democrat party hate trump so bad they will except a progressive base candidate to defeat trump. Don't ask purists to compromise moderates by definition will compromise.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Ruffin' Fur Rudy

Stephen M Zumbo You are so right. The startling revelation yesterday about CNN is just the tip of the iceberg. The Democrats do not want you to figure out how this started. Hillary knows it was her involvement with the Russians and it will soon be revealed. The one worlders struggle with all the rights that we do enjoy. Religious persecution is just the latest. Look at how far we have slid.

maybe the NBA should move to China.

Alas, the problem is that the last two sentences are inevitable in that world view. We are what we claim to fear most - religious zealots.
