See, this is why I couldn't find an image of you in our image guessing chain in the other thread, that I thought had any chance of being accurate. You're a wild card. I haven't talked to you enough to try to get an accurate read on you (by internet standards).

Now, I only "know" 1 person that supports Mitch McConnell, lol.

And no doubt he is smart, all of those guys/girls that have stayed in office forever are smart. But there are lots of smart people that don't use it for the benefit of others.

Edit - I found you...



That show is awesome and Charlie is awesome, this is a compliment, just in case it came off differently.

Since you bring up being off the rocker and on the street, I want to broach the school shooting in Michigan. Hearing that the school had a meeting with parents about a drawing of a gun and bleeding figures that says "the thoughts won't stop, help me. My life is useless. Blood everywhere." and they kept him in school is awful. This is a significant problem that we don't have more school psychologists and social workers, that schools do not have the authority to remove this student directly at the time of an incident like this (this is not exclusive to that school district, most schools just are not given that autonomy by state governments and local jurisdictions). I am actually glad they are charging the parents I hope they have evidence to support the charges but regardless this might be a turning point akin to when we started charging parents for serving teenagers in the basement.

Iím glad they charged the parents too..in fact I wish more parents would be charged when kids in their care, under the age of 17 commit gun crimes.

Parents should be held accountable

The real interesting thing is that they apparently questioned Billy Joel and an acquaintance about their involvement in it. He confused the cops with his explanation providing random events on the origins of the fire.

He was questioned at the location of the fire where he tried to fight it.

The way it was explained to me (this is the boiled down version) explanation is that Senators and Congressmen already rely on professional Congressional staff to navigate the Byzantian legislative rules and processes. Experienced members of Congress understand these rules and processes and are not dependent (or as dependent) on staff as are the newer members.

My friend painted a bleak picture of how powerful the staff currently is and how much worse it could be.

I understand that, but any term limit legislation could also set limits on staffers service in Congress. Not saying they would be kicked out of government service just limited in the time on Capital Hill.

Re: The Most Fresh & Cordial Political Thread Ever

Pick a side and read about the Congressional Budget Office's score of the Build Back Better Bill. Then read the other side. No wonder why we are so divided.

Watching a conservative show, shockingly I know, and even less shockingly, they talk about how expensive it will be and now we're finally all screwed.

Then I Google'd it, and the CNN's/etcs., tell me how it's all amazing and is basically free, and it's only evil republicans lying about it.

Neither are true.

Divide and conquer. Evil geniuses (for themselves). Politics now controls the MSM on both sides, and it's fucking terrible for our country.

That's my politics for the weekend.

Fuck Dallas!!
