Here's where we disagree, Chad.
 
I make no secret of the fact that I am a born again Christian. Didn't vote for Trump, though, if only because of very realistic concerns about the man's mental fitness to command, despite his recent conversion (so the story goes). Paul was nothing like Trijcomm, that's all I'll say.

The Dems don't want to keep Obamacare as it is. They want to fix it.

immoderate has no idea what the words paragon and probity mean so they

This one is problematic because it can very well backfire. The rates
that the USA currently charges American Enterprise for use of public lands
have been known to be well below "Market Reference Range" for decades,
despite the likes of cattle ranchers like Bundy complaining that they're too
expensive. Deliberately allowing these 'give away' rates to continue is a
form of Government subsidies to these industries, which means that from
an export perspective, other countries could rightfully raise their tariffs.

Plus what appears to be happening is that the Feds are demanding
local LEO's to take extra steps - - that means that it has the markings
of an **Unfunded Mandate**.

And making zero effort to actually fix things. As I've mentioned before,
the only way that healthcare costs will go down is for someone in the
business to get paid less - - so whose ox is to get gored? The most
obvious ones are the ones making the highest profits, which is why the
industry is overripe for disruption.

And even if there was a bad player to occur, that still doesn't change the
Constitutional principles. Overall, the whole 'extreme vetting' is just as
bad of a Red Herring distraction as the wall.
 
> > 5. Keystone Pipeline
 
> Great if you're a climate change denier.
 
I'm mixed on this one, as there's a couple of major factors. First one is
outside of our purview, which is the environmental risk(s) in Canada. The
second one is that a pipeline would displace use of rail, which has been
having recurring derailments & fires. Third one is that money going to
the railroads should theoretically help fund their infrastructure to minimize
future accidents. Fourth one is that the pipeline routing was done very
poorly in terms of respecting the ownership rights of others. Fifth one is
the joke about mandating 'American Steel' after 99.9% of the materials
had already been purchased & shipped.

That hardware was shipped to Afghanistan during the prior
administration and was simply waiting for the right target to
present itself to have the opportunity. Didn't require an
Executive authority to use, so neither POTUS would have
been in the decision loop ... thus neither would merit credit.

Just heard a Republican congressman from NM in an interview

the same "strengthening" thing and it made no real difference.
His basic message was 'how many times do we have to repeat...?'

$100 charity wager than it won't raise revenues & balance the budget.
 
And what **has** happened from the last Income tax simplification
legislation (Reagan) was that the rates were dropped & loopholes killed,
but in the 30 years since, new loopholes have crept back in, and since
the rates are lower, we're now worse off than we were before because
that reform. Unless the plan has a way to positively keep new loopholes
out forever, it isn't a good plan. And if it eliminates the AMT, it is most
definitely a horrible plan.

There's been a lot of damage done, although the good news is that
much of may only be fleeting from a diplomatic standpoint if there's
suitable corrections taken. So far, there's not been too much actual
permanent damage done yet. So while I'd give them an "F" for intent,
in actual execution, they don't get that bad of a grade; probably a "D".

One thing that makes me fear for the future is how thoroughly captured by
far-right propaganda the less able have become. They have no conception of
the scientific method, so literally everything devolves into a giant he
said/she said pile of shit. Now due to Russian interference they've help
elect a genuine weakling as president and they don't even know it.

It says that Trump called it a Muslim ban, and realizing that didn't

I ditch them until football season. Then, I turn them back on.
My cable/tv/entertainment bill consists of
- Internet (expensed)
- Sling (sometimes with sports) ($480/yr)
- Netflix ($120 yr)
- Amazon Prime ($100/yr)
- Amazon Kindle Freetime ($100/yr)
 
$800/yr or $66/month.
 
We could easily drop Sling.

If I actually had a reliable cell phone, I might consider dropping cable. But I often get complaints people can't hear me my on my cell. And cable/internet/phone happens to be cheaper than internet/phone from my provider.

Great show. Did you know:
 
1. Current FX series The Americans has the same producer as NE (Joshua Brand)
 
2. NE was originally supposed to be set in a resort town in Florida. Even though Alaska is what gave the show its quirky appeal the producers kept insisting it was character driven and the setting wasn't very important.

Prolly - esp amongst those w/ kids. The pre-kid yuppies won't like - but those with kids will *love* - no competing for schools, kids can play sports and participate, yard to play in, don't have to hover watch them all the time etc etc etc.
 
If only they had those sorts of places closer to the city - you know....sort of surrounding the urban area? Maybe close enough you could take a train to work?

Actually, I didn't know either of those. The setting seemed pretty important to me for Fleischman's character. I mean, it could have been a different remote place but I don't think resort town in Florida would have worked.
 
I got to stop and take a picture in Roslyn, WA, outside the Roslyn Cafe, which was changed to Roslyn's Cafe for the show.

I figure when a craft-beer joint opens in Red Lake Falls, it'll be time to find a new Shangri-La.

Reminds me of an article I read about Minneapolis. Headhunters hate Minneapolis because they can't get people to move there, and, if the do move there, they can't get them to leave.

If one ignores all the past and current violent rioting of the left
then TALKING about it on the right becomes an issue. I suggest you
enroll in a Putting Priorities in Proper Order class.

I'm for solving the problem. The best solution is not to cause a
problem by infringing on other people's rights. Preventing the right
of Coulter's free speech right is not free speech. Trespassers should
be violated.

If they were 130 miles from us, in practice they would. Certainly we have had
to defend our "border" with Cuba and Haiti.

I could live with that.

It's like every tax reform proposal ever. Looks good before the lobbyists get their hands on it.

Raising the standard deduction takes care of that for the middle class.

I wonder how many fewer people would end up itemizing. I'm sure the numbers are somewhere or will be shortly.
 
Note this also has the effect of reducing the value of the remaining deductions, mortgage and charity, for people who will no longer itemize.

Absolutely. The middle class should love this, for the most part
