This statement is correct to a point.
 
Trump has tapped into issues that people care about that the NR crowd (or The Atlantic crowd) didn't get.
 
He did it by not being a real conservative. He's the pseudo-con.
 
Because real conservatiism resonates with a very small subset of people. He had to be a pseudo-con to get elected. This is what the real cons don't get.

Smaller government and individual liberty only resonates with a small number of people?

When taken to an extreme, yes.

Which replacement plans are they using - yesterday, today or
tommorrow? Or maybe repeal with no immediate replacement as currently
discussed. Are they giving any thought to insurance claims when N.
Korea drops and ICBM on this country or the Chinese destroy our fleet
in the disputed waters? Or how many stolen guns will kill innocents?
Or having to pay insurance claims for all the people darkstar
exterminates?
 
If the UnACA is repealed and the GoP can't agree on a replacement the
rates would revert to pre-Obama. You know, BEFORE they started raising
the rates.

The guy (who knows who...they all sound alike to me) said "now that the media is melting down and Trump is exposing fake news...." I thought it's hopeless on the right. They get fed this every day. It's pure propaganda, pure nonsense but it's presented as fact. Sad!

That old gag, where the question of what policies we work together on never comes up because, obviously, we have to follow the lead of the Dem Party...which means the Clintons.

A CD? What year do you think this is, 2000?

SXM's survival is an interesting case. They aren't only surviving, they are thriving. I have it on two cars, on the $5/mo promotional rate that I have to jaw them to get every six months.
 
But now they have radios that can feed back to them what you listen to and how much (I really don't know the tech behind it and was skeptical this existed at first) and they've gotten really good at fine tuning their sales pitch based on their data.

Now that I am retired and am generating a lot of windshield time traveling
to bridge tournaments, SXM is more attractive to me. But I am still enthralled
with podcasts and books on tape that I get from the library.
 
By the way, I try to break the bubble a bit and listen to podcasts from
David Axelrod and Sam Harris, two (in Harris case mostly) liberal dudes.
I can't really stomach it when Axelrod has someone like Kamela Harris
on, way too much economic ignorance, but I try sometimes. Axelrod is a
halfway decent interviewer, and it is especially interesting to listen
to him subtly try to test out Democratic talking points in interviews
with conservatives like Mike Lee.
 
Harris is an excellent interviewer, and he definitely is one of the
smarter people I have been exposed to. He is on the leading edge when
it comes to some of my favorite topics, IQ, artificial intelligence,
and the singularity. He can be a bit dogmatic despite his relative open-
mindedness, but he is capable of keeping politics out of most things.

I think it is done through their terrestrial repeater stations, i.e. only
in metro areas that have those.

Lots of Christians forget a lot of what Christianity is all about. Par for the course IMO.

At least they have something they try to live up to. :)

It's tough being a conservative white male. You get up in the morning
knowing there are blacks to oppress, women to demean, an entire
ecological environment to pollute, unions to squash, children to
endanger, identity groups to offend, tax loopholes to exploit, and
countless acts of hatred to commit. With all that work to be done at
least your day goes quickly. -- Bobber Fleck

What ever made you think that was not the limit of liberal practical

When you have to try to legislate equality you ain't got much. Of
course that's the reason they legislate equality.

It did under Wallace Wade, Frank Thomas, Bear, Gene Stallings and

But that's like 5 Dolly Partons lying on the beach with four
flat-chested women between them.

So are goats, sheep, and cows, but that doesn't stop some people from having that particular fetish.
