  1. Good signs for the Dems: Democrats Just Flipped Seats In 2 Districts That Voted For Donald Trump - HuffPost https://apple.news/ARlnLwB-SSiusC82ZSi8xew
  2. It doesn't need approval by the City Council. Because the number of verified signatures exceeded 10% of eligible voters in the City, per the City Charter the Council must either approve the project or put it on the ballot. The Council could put the election off until the 2018 primary instead of November. There are no other options.
  3. BTW, I don't think it's been mentioned that a day ago the City Clerk verified sufficient signatures to ensure that the proposal must either be approved by the City Council or placed on the ballot for approval or disapproval with a simple majority. In my opinion SDSU needs to engage. I think it will pass.
  4. They're both assholes. As would be both people in your scenario.
  5. African Women's Health Centers?
  6. “The mob takes the Fifth Amendment. If you’re innocent why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?” Trump said at a campaign rally in Iowa in September. Flynn (who of course asked for immunity in exchange for testimony) himself said during an interview last year "When you are given immunity, that means you have probably committed a crime."
  7. It's actually "boondocks," from which "boonies" derives. It's from the Tagalog word "bondok," which means "hills." It was almost certainly brought back by GIs who had to patrol the bondok while putting down the Moro Uprising. A similar situation happened after Viet Nam with the word "klick" being used for kilometer. It faded out though, I suppose because we really don't need a word for kilometer. I looked up yoyo. The origin is unknown so you could be right, although who knows where the yoyo started?
  8. Here's one: What is a relatively common American English word (the only one I'm aware of) that comes from Tagalog, the most common language of the Phillipines?
  9. Ah come on. You're not at kindergarten level. I give you credit for at least 6th grade.
  10. Sheesh yourself. When someone used such specific and strident language on the campaign trail to rouse the Deplorables I think it's only natural to call him out.
  11. I was fine with O's approach.
  12. THEN: Trump had plenty of harsh words for Saudi Arabia before his election. He accused the kingdom of curtailing the rights of women and gays and lesbians and suggested the country was behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. “Who blew up the World Trade Center?” he asked during one Fox News appearance. “It wasn’t the Iraqis, it was Saudi — take at look at Saudi Arabia, open the documents,” he demanded. NOW: In an ornate hall, Trump heaped praised on the Saudis, describing the country as a “magnificent kingdom.” ”I am honored to be received by such gracious hosts,” he said at the start of his address. “I have always heard about the splendor of your country and the kindness of your citizens, but words do not do justice to the grandeur of this remarkable place.” http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/saudi-visit-trump-contradictions-campaign/
  13. From now on I'll refer to it as "the Foundation formerly known as Ivanka's."😉
  14. According to Mug's Factcheck link 89% of the Clinton Foundation $$ go to charity. I would be surprised if the % is that high on Ivanka's after it works its way through the World Bank.
