  1. GOP Rep. Trump evil Forest Gump

    More like 80% agree with me. They may not like Trump but Congress only has a 14% approval rating. And most people have a very low approval rating for most US Gov't agencies too. When Obama was President, most people still didn't have high approval of Congress either.
  2. GOP Rep. Trump evil Forest Gump

    Some of the Republicans want to blame Trump for their woes. The only negative thing Trump has done is expose the Republican establishment. The Dems with HIllary were already exposed, The Republicans are the ones hurting themselves. Trump obviously upsets people, on a daily basis, but the results have been strikingly positive. The fact that Trump does piss off so many people does mean to me he is doing his job, not because of it, but because of the status quo establishment do-nothing attitudes in Washington DC. From our congressmen to bureaucrats. Most of them think its all about them. They want things to move slow and easy and thats just not the world we live in anymore. Everyone is upset Trump keeps bumping the apple cart. But the Republicans were given control of the Congress and the Presidency and they act like their the minority party. THATS why Republicans are in trouble in the midterms.
  3. Paul Ryan will not seek re-election

    I claimed victory on the tax cuts! The gov't has taken more than its share of my earnings during my lifetime. I'll take any break I can get! And this massive spending bill they just passed was several months AFTER the tax cuts took effect. OVERSPENDING is the problem. And thats definitely a bi-partisan issue. THeir all guilty.
  4. Final Nod to the Josh Allen Hype Train

    So right now still with 2 weeks to go, I don't think Allen is in the top 4 picks. I suspect Cleveland takes Darnold at #1, Giants take Rosen #2 and Jets go for Mayfield at #3. I haven't seen anything that says Jets are interested in Josh Allen. Then Cleveland probably will take Barkley or Chubb at #4. I just don't think Broncos will take a QB in the first round after the Paxton Lynch pick and they will take Chubb if they can get him. The next several teams - Indy, Tampa, Chicago, SF, Oakland and Miami aren't likely to take a QB in first round either. Allen could end up to Buffalo at #12 or Arizona at #15. Or some team could trade with one of these to move up and get Allen as well. But right now I don't see him as a top 4 pick.
  5. Top 125 Best Places to Live in U.S.

    So I went to go look at this trailer in Denver last weekend, I got off I-25 and went west on Alameda, which is a major avenue in Denver. Um, what a complete sh!thole. Miles of sh!thole, seedy bars, liquor stores, pot dispensaries and run down businesses. And many of the folks you see walking around probably don't speak english. Not all of Denver is new and shiny.
  6. China blinks first

    Here's the thing with China, their great at talking the talk! Trump is more astute than most will give him any credit, he knows their not going to change a damn thing until they have to. And as much as the US can hurt China in any trade war, China will be hurt much more. The trade gap is already over 4-1 and growing.
  7. No more financing

    I think this is mostly symbolic. But before some of you start rejoicing, there's boatloads of foreign money out there that could care less what you think of them.
  8. Paul Ryan will not seek re-election

    I'm not a big fan of Ryan, but I like him more than I did Boehner. But the big problem with Congress is the US Senate. You truly have to pay off each one of them for every vote.
  9. It could be a wild evening in the Middle East

    Maybe now Democrats will get what they've been wanting! War with Russia.
  10. Spring Football Reports

    I was looking at the conference statistics, OMG Wyoming's running game was pathetic in 2017. By far worst in the conference (stats). This is why Josh Allen had a much tougher year, no running game, offensive line was worse, and receivers were much less talented than previous year. The fact the Pokes went 8-5 is kind of amazing. The defense was much better this year though but still very tough for any D when your O has as many 3 & outs as Pokes did.
  11. Another Chemical Attack in Syria

    Biggest thing the US and Europe could do would be to get Russia to stop supporting Syria. But thats probably not a real possibility due to Russia wants to be there and the US and UK are more concerned with a Russian spy being killed than innocent people being gassed. The only long term way to get Russia to be a better actor in the world is if they are more involved in the world economy and actually have something to lose. They primarily just export raw materials abroad and energy to eastern Europe. They don't have much economic incentive to not stick their nose in things.
  12. I really don't see how anyone could sue Facebook, which is a social network, because their data wasn't private. Nothing about FB is private. Your bank has private info, your doctor has private info, things you voluntarily put on FB could hardly be considered private. That doesn't mean CA or others didn't misuse data, certainly that data wasn't meant to be used in those ways and FB shouldn't be using it or allowing others to use it like that. But its also not any worse than what Google does, they capture all your data, where you go, how much you spend and who you talk to. And they use it to make money.
  13. Trump Addresses Spending Bill

    Speak for yourself. The tax cuts were great imo. I personally would have made the Corp tax rate more like 24-25% but thats just me. However Congress doesn't have a revenue problem, doesn't matter how much they have they spend more. They have a spending problem, in every area. Yes I like having a good defense, No I don't like how much we spend (and waste) on defense. And everything else. Everything should be cut until we're at least in current balance, then look to pay down the deficit slowly.
  14. Trump Addresses Spending Bill

    I don't know how any Democrat, Republican, Independent, Libertarian or anyone who doesn't even vote could support this bill. How is this any different than 3rd world countries who bribe gov't officials to get what they want? This shows how dysfunctional and corrupt the US Congress is. You vote for my stuff and I'll vote for your stuff and we'll just borrow more money. These guys don't even pretend to try anymore.
  15. UNR Sucks

    If only Nevada had ever seen the basketball layup before, they might have won that game. Its hard to win when the other team is being tricky and doing things like driving for easy layups!
