99% of white nationalists are reliable voters for the good ol' gop, Ken. I know thats a sore point for the vast majority of y'all non-racist goppers, but it's still true.
 
The only more reliable republican votes are the young earthers (99.9%) and the doomsday preppers (99.99%). Don't look those figures up though - just be wowed by my faux precision.
 
Cheers.

The only thing the GOP health care plan eliminates is a $trillion dollars a year in Obama Care taxes!
Not to mention that the entire Obama Care fiasco was in a death spiral. However, they should
have served Guinness.

Everyone does have access to healthcare. However, they don't have a right to compel others to provide services for free.

It is amazing how some people think they have more right to the money
in my pocket than I do.

Then make the argument. But you do not. You repeat another
sophisticated rhetorical device out of the book of sophisticated
rhetorical devices.
 
Right to life is the inalienable right to defend one's life.
Here inalienaable means that no person and no agencey and no
government can abridge that right. Stand your ground is grounded
on the right to life. The right to bear arms is based on the
right to life. Demanding that somebody else nurse you to health
is not based on the right to life.
 
> Some, I think, take the position that that would mean the right to "birth" and that after that you're on your own, buddy!
 
Not quite. Two people who engender a child are responsible for that child.
Otherwise they are prosecuted for abuse or murder. Upon attaining your majority
you are on your own, buddy.

The usual opposition media agents have all refused to air an ad created by
the President of The United States of America and have deemed it to be
fake news.
 
These pompous bastards are now refusing to allow what they consider to be
uneducated yokels and trash from even being allowed to hear the words of
our president.
 
Wow.

It's not just CNN: Now ABC, CBS and NBC all refuse to run Trump re-
election campaign ad that blasts them as 'FAKE NEWS'
 
President Trump's 2020 reelection campaign is blasting 'biased' CNN,
ABC, CBS and NBC for refusing to run Trump's first re-election ad
 
The ad includes five TV news anchors and personalities as it blasts
'fake news'
 
CNN pushed back at the 'false graphic' as says 'the mainstream media
is not 'fake news'
 
The campaign planned to put $1.5 million behind the 30-second ad
Instead the publicity will drive millions of eyeballs to see it, free of
charge

Donald Trump's ongoing feud with TV networks not named 'Fox News' has
clicked into a new gear as ABC, CBS and NBC have all joined CNN in
refusing to run an ad from the president's re-election campaign committee.
 
The ad shows hosts from all four networks under a banner that reads 'FAKE
NEWS.'
 
It's the Trump campaign's first commercial since winning the White House,
and although it is three years out from the next election, it declares the
nation has 'rarely seen such success.'
 
The ad blasts the 'fake news' media for failing to see things that way –
and includes CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Also included are MSNBC's Rachel Maddow
and Andrea Mitchell, CBS's Scott Pelley and ABC's George Stephanopoulos in
its rogues gallery.
 
Nowhere to be found is the right-leaning Fox News Channel, Trump's
favorite network.
 
The first big planned ad buy from Donald Trump's re-election campaign
blasts 'fake news' from (left to right) MSNBC's Andrew Mitchell, CNN's
Wolf Blitzer, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, ABC's George Stephanopoulos and CBS's

The president's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, says the four networks are
engaging in 'an unprecedented act of censorship'
 
Presidential daughter-in-law Lara Trump, a consultant to the campaign
organization, said in a statement that '[a]pparently, the mainstream media
are champions of the First Amendment only when it serves their own
political views.'
 
'Faced with an ad that doesn't fit their biased narrative, CNN, ABC, CBS,
and NBC have now all chosen to block our ad. This is an unprecedented act
of censorship in America that should concern every freedom-loving
citizen.'
 
In an appearance Thursday night on the Fox News Channel's 'Hannity'
program, she called the move 'really ridiculous' and 'really sad.'
 
CNN was the first to take a pass on airing the ad, a move that generated
news stories and publicity – and drove millions of eyeballs to the 30-
second spot without costing the campaign a cent.
 
It was to spend $1.5 million to put the ad on the air.
President Trump has repeatedly referred to the 'fake news' media and has
clashed with correspondents and anchors on nearly every network

President Trump has repeatedly referred to the 'fake news' media and has
clashed with correspondents and anchors on nearly every network
 
The ad has all the hallmarks of an early campaign push, including Trump's
ubiquitous slogan
 
The network 'requested that the advertiser remove the false graphic that
the mainstream media is "fake news," a CNN spokeswoman told DailyMail.com
this week.
 
'The mainstream media is not fake news, and therefore the ad is false and
per policy will only be accepted if that graphic is deleted.'
 
The statement didn't dispute any of the ad's other claims lauding Trump's
moves to slash regulations, create jobs, and confirm Supreme Court Justice
Neil Gorsuch.
 
The Trump camp didn't shy from CNN's pushback – blasting it out in a press
release to its base of supporters and contributors.
 
'It is absolutely shameful to see the media blocking the positive message
that President Trump is trying to share with the country. It's clear that
CNN is trying to silence our voice and censor our free speech because it
doesn't fit their narrative,' said Michael Glassner, the campaign's
executive director.
 
It yet another release making hay out of the blowup, Glassner piles on.
The email missive is headlined: 'CNN EPITOMIZES MEANING OF FAKE NEWS,
CENSORS TRUMP CAMPAIGN AD.'
 
'This is censorship pure and simple,' he says in the email. 'By rejecting
our ad, CNN has proven that it supports censorship is biased and fears an
opposing point of view. President Trump's loyal supporters know the truth:
The mainstream media mislead, misguide, deceive, and distract.'
 
Glassner concludes: 'CNN epitomizes the meaning of fake news and has
proven it by rejecting our paid campaign ad.'
 
The four-network shoving match comes less than a week after the president
engaged in long-distance sparring with the media during the annual White
House Correspondents Dinner, which he did not attend.
 
Trump instead held a rally in Pennsylvania where he blasted the media in
front of nearly 10,000 screaming fans.
 
'We are not fake news, we are not failing news organizations and we are
not the enemy of the American people,' said WHCA president and Reuters
correspondent Jeff Mason during his remarks at the dinner.
 
Titled 'First 100 Days,' the highlights Trump's initial achievements in
office and blasts 'fake news' for downplaying them.
 
'You wouldn't know it from watching the news,' a moderator scolds – as
huge red letters screaming 'Fake News' cover the faces of TV personalities.
 
'America has rarely seen such success, the ad's narrator says.
 
'A respected Supreme Court justice confirmed. Companies investing in
American jobs again. America becoming more energy independent. Regulations
that kill American jobs eliminated. The biggest tax cut plan in history.'
 
'You wouldn't know it from watching the news,' it continues.
 
At that point the ad flashes the words 'FAKE NEWS' on-screen, complete
with pictures of five TV news anchors.
 
The ad touts the 'biggest tax cut in history' – which hasn't happened yet
since Congress is still wrangling over the details

The ad buy, announced Monday, is paid for by Donald J. Trump for
President, Inc., and was to air in major markets throughout the country in
addition to targeting specific voting groups online.
 
A statement from the campaign said the ad is part of Trump's 'approach of
reaching out to the American people directly by highlighting his work over
the first 100 days and fighting back against the continued media bias.'
 
'I'm Donald Trump and I approved this message,' the commercial concludes
in the president's voice – just like the campaign ads Americans saw non-
stop.
 
'America is winning,' the voice-over says, 'and President Trump is making
America great again.'

It actually is...I was worried about that because my Nissan econobox is getting a little tight, but the Cayman seat and front felt much roomier
michael anderson <mianderson79@gmail.com>: May 05 04:29PM -0700

I realize the boxster and Cayman are very similar and share the same engine and chassis and whatever, but(conv vs not aside) they look different to me. The Cayman has different angles and a little different look.
