From that source



Legal scholars said they could not remember a time that a sitting justice expressed regret publicly for something he or she said

I was impressed she offered a public apology. I doubt she would receive one were the roles reversed.




Be careful what you wish for ... typically, one-party states aren't a lot of "fun" to live in.

And I thought that was exactly what the op was attempting to mock?
I just find it funny how quickly this is all deemed a fail. Like there will be no more opportunities to pass legislation.

In America it is different, people pay for the right to collect Medicare benefits.


United States Medicare is funded by a payroll tax, premiums and surtaxes from beneficiaries, and general revenue. It provides health insurance for Americans aged 65 and older who have worked and paid into the system through the payroll tax.

You're crowing about what you think will be a one-party state.

I was answering the ops question. Did the results of the election change somehow? I thought everyone realized it was a one party state at least for the next 2 years? The real question will be what they do with it. At least some of the gop in the house have the stones to vote against their own party. Too bad we didn't see that from the dems in 2010.




You're mistaken in that but that's off-topic.

How so? Did Reid not make things easier for a simple majority in the senate?


Gorsuch is not the bogeyman the senate dems try and make him out to be.

I'm a strong believer in natural law. Natural selection. The weak do not need compassion. Pets have genetic diseases compared to their natural counterparts because they lack natural selection and the weak are saved by medical care. Billions are spent on medical care for pets on diseases that do not exist in their natural counterparts. I do not believe society should spend money on medical care for the poor who cannot afford doctors because they cannot work due to disease or drugs.

If society saves the poor and the weak by paying for their medical care, then over time more and more people will be poor and weak, in terms of proportion of society, and society would collapse like what happened to the USSR.

Medicare, Obamacare, socialism, it's not sustainable under our current technological stage of society where money is so important.


Utter tripe.

If you are such a fan of natural selection, you should move to 1930's Germany, they also believed in that.
I hope you never suffer tragedy and end up poor with no safety net to no fault of your own.

"If society saves the poor and the weak by paying for their medical care, then over time more and more people will be poor and weak, in terms of proportion of society, and society would collapse like what happened to the USSR."

Simply not true and i'm 100% confident USSR's healthcare bill had very little to do with the downfall of USSR.

Yes, more opportunities, but that's not what Trump is known for.

If he doesn't win the first time, he moves on.

He was serious about letting it all blow up.

Agreed. Nor is he the bastion of the Scalia Doctrine the Republicans think he is.

Actually, life shows us quite clearly that social animals evolve to maximize individual strengths and minimize weaknesses. So called "weaker members" contribute to the group in unexpected ways. Primates, wolves, ants, bees, etc.

I have found that the toughest talkers are usually compensating for some unconscious sense of failure or weakness.

Our obsession with what we have deemed as perfection will likely be a factor in the speed of our demise on this planet.

Nature prepares for changes in our environment by creating traits that will improve our possibility for survival. The diminishing and lost of one trait, like a tail or an appendix, while developing and altering another, like bigger eyes spaced wider apart, or a flatter nose, may be the traits that our species will need to survive gradual Earth changes. If we destroy all Earthlings that don't fit our jaundiced eye and restricted view of what is normal, we may be killing off the very mutants that Earth created to ensure our survival.

Ill tell you what im seeing:

- The entirety of DC seems to be playing party politics and pissing matches with Trump because they want him to fail. Let me repeat that differently: the entirety of DC is trying to derail the office of the president for the sole reason of who he is. Yes, this always happens, which is more disgusting. But im pointing it out here because its now, now "then". This, to me, is treasonous behavior. They don't care if what he wants to do is good for the country.....they simply want the office of the president to fail.

- Trumps a wildcard. I want to think he's a moron (he plays the part), but until Congress tries to work with him and its him that fails, i put all blame on Congress. Congress is a freaking joke. They divy up into their little caucuses and play clique politics. Until they can get their act together and stop acting like high school children trying to rig the prom queen vote, i just can't take them seriously. They are the greatest point of failure in our Republic, and they get a free pass....WHY?!?

- Paul Ryan needs to step down. His leadership is a joke. The circus is a circus because the ring leaders make it so. And he looks enough like Anthony Weiner he creeps me out. LOL

- The CIA seems to be operating within our own government. This is as treasonous as it gets. I cannot believe they are still around.

I for one am glad you could come out of the "triggered" closet and show your inadequacies to the world. It will make you a stronger man Chuckles. Don't fear the future, embrace it. Trump is likely to "trigger" you a few more times in the coming years and you just feel free to let all that fear and anguish out. Your buddies here on ATS have got your back and we are happy to let you vent. Good job you cute little snowflake.


Love always,

A member of the Trump Cult, (better known as proud American)


I've seen you criticise Trump so I'd hardly consider you part of the CULT, mate.

I'm glad I have your blessing to vent though...

Has the travel ban failed?

Has the healthcare bill failed?

How so?
Travel ban (muslim ban if you like) is working its way through the court system, not an immediate success but in progress.
The healthcare bill was a disaster; anyone sad that did not pass?
I read earlier a rep from alabama has put forward a bill to repeal the aca. So there will be more opportunity to pass a bill that will actually help americans.
It appears the clean power act is going to be struck down today.

Some bumps in the road but, not bad for a novice politician. A 65 day sample is pretty small.

My point is that for many people Trump being blocked at all turns is 'winning' ... even if what Trump is doing would help them. If Trump helps America they 'lose'.

I pulled this snippet out because I think it is so important! I have never seen Washington in this shape. If they can't get their stuff in gear then they need to be gone.

If my boss thought that I was ditching my work just because of who asked me to do it, he would fire me. And every single person in Washington needs to be fired!

I get that there are TONS of people that don't like Trump. Don't care. You still have a job to do. Their job is to work for the American people not against someone that they don't like.

If you voted for Trump, your legislators are betraying you. Plain and simple.

If you didn't vote for Trump, your legislators are taking the game thats always existed and turning it up to 11.

I've not seen this before myself. I've said it before, but I didn't vote for Trump. I don't like Trump. I tried to talk my mother out of her support for Trump, and spent time harassing my other relatives over it. Not aggressively....you see how i talk with people who are friendly. So my support of Trump as noting to do with me liking him, his policy promises, or anything else but the sheer volume of unfair treatment being given him. Our legislative branch has completely disrespected the office of president. Not just Donald Trump. The office of president has been diminished. Simply because they don't like Donald Trump.

And then people actually think its because he can't unite his own party. That decision was made above their heads. Just because Donald won't bow to the dark overlords doesn't mean the rest of government won't.

If we could ever get around to discussing Trump as president, instead of hating him for being Trump, id be literally ecstatic.
