Re: “Not Going Anywhere

CW13 - Who said anything about being entitled to citizenship without going through proper channels? Nice straw man argument. DACA is not about citizenship.

Re: “The Skinny

"Does John McCain still have it in him to drive the final stake through the undead heart of this vampiric legislation?"

What do you know? It appears that he does.

With reference to who knows what is in which law or which bill, it is clear that not only does our loser POTUS not have any idea (a) what is in Graham-Cassidy or any of the other so-called "repeal and replace" bills or (b) what is in the Affordable Care Act, he also (c) has no idea what health insurance is. Here are two descriptions he has given of his understanding of health insurance:

"So pre-existing conditions are a tough deal. Because you are basically saying from the moment the insurance, youre 21 years old, you start working and youre paying $12 a year for insurance, and by the time youre 70, you get a nice plan.

Insurance is, youre 20 years old, you just graduated from college, and you start paying $15 a month for the rest of your life and by the time youre 70, and you really need it, youre still paying the same amount and thats really insurance."

It is obvious that our loser POTUS thinks health insurance works like life insurance. It is apparent that he has never had to worry about whether the doctor he wanted to see was included in his insurance company's network. He has never had to worry about a deductible or a copay. He has absolutely no idea how ANYTHING within this general subject works.

Re: “White Doesn't Make Right

Nathan K, of the three court decisions you described, all of them were so removed from the actual decisions as to make it difficult to determine which decisions you were describing. The last one was only recognizable because it pertained to the subject of the article above. I would challenge you to locate the phrase "raza studies" in the judge's opinion.

Honestly, with reference to the first decision you describe, I have no idea which decision you are attempting to describe. At all.

If she's waiting for the furor to die down, she'll be waiting for a LONG time.

Re: “Danehy

Who could possibly disagree that death is a bitch? Consequently, I will simply add:

I see Captain Kirk listening to the Rolling Stones' "2000 Light Years from Home" and/or Pink Floyd's "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun."

Re: “Trumpcare Is Dead

Minor point, but details are important: Mitch McConnell is not the "Senate President." By virtue of the Constitution, that title belongs to Mike Pence. For succession purposes, it is important to note that the President Pro Tempore (usually "pro tem") of the Senate is Orrin Hatch. If Trump were to leave office, and somehow Pence and Paul Ryan were eliminated from the succession by resignation, impeachment, or death, the next person in line would be Orrin Hatch.

Brrr. I just had a cold chill at that possibility.

Mitch McConnell is the majority leader of the Senate.
