Thank you for proving my point. :ohno: :coffee:

Not to go all JSO, but he trashed POWs with that comment.
'I like people who weren't captured'


I'm not trying to defend the guy. He's a tool. But brokeback is acting like he's the only one in DC doing this shit when the motherfuckers running for the Donk nomination have perfected that crap over 40-50 years....

And my apologies to 93 for hijacking the thread. Back to regularly scheduled programming.

I've always like Jon Stewart. His first show after 9/11, the opening monologue, is extremely powerful. Go watch it.

Fair points. Heard a counter argument to this issue being that the burden for funding these kinds of added benefits for first responders should be funded through the state and not the fed...but given the massive implications of this attack I think asking the fed for money is fair game...


...and I'd have no problem funding medical support for these folks than about a few hundred other wasteful expenditures by the fed.

The day I finally realized the elected were really the Uniparty, was after Conks had been ripping Obama all month over something, and then when he gave his State of the Union, the same Conks were clamoring to shake his hand.

I don't have any problem with it either, but I find their grandstanding and sense of entitlement distasteful.

Rand Paul blocks vote on bill to aid 9/11 first responders

Sen. Rand Paul blocked a vote to permanently reauthorize the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund, which provides financial assistance for first responders suffering from 9/11-related medical issues. Paul prevented the Senate from voting to approve the bill through unanimous consent because of its cost.

"It has long been my feeling that we need to address our massive debt in the country," Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, said on the Senate floor. "And therefore any new spending ... should be offset by cutting spending that's less valuable. We need to at the very least have this debate."

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, who introduced the measure for unanimous consent Wednesday, said that she was "deeply disappointed" by Paul's actions. Under Senate rules, any one senator can propose that a bill be considered for unanimous consent, but one senator can also block it. The bill can still be brought to the floor for debate and a full vote.

He’s consistent about his message of needing offsetting cuts with each spending bill thats passed, but this was a dick move, for sure. Very, very bad PR.

Agreed. What was the point? Lots better ways to go after Congress for a budget-busting (if that exists anymore) vote.

He did...you’re correct...

But I believe actions are louder than words...and his administration’s actions towards veterans has been so much better than any previous administration (from either party)...

Successful at what? Coddling dictators? Enriching the wealthy? Destroying the Environment? Pissing off our allies? Trashing veterans? Embezzling hundreds of millions? Obstructing justice?

If you are into those things, then yes he is successful.


Coddling dictators? “I’ll have more flexibility after the election....”
Enriching the Wealthy? Do you really want to compare balance sheets of lifelong senators and congressmen who have magically become multimillionaires on a salary that probably is barely above the poverty line in DC?
Destroying the environment? Who is it that sold enriched unranium to the Ruskies?
Pissing off Allies? DO. NOT. CARE.
Trashing Veterans? Just one...and you don’t like him anyways.
Enbezzling hundreds of millions? I think you’re thinking Of Hillary and her “Foundation”.
Obstructing Justice? Again, Hillary.

Try harder, rube.



Man you have gone off the deep end. Moving to Texas has turned you into a flaming conk parrot
LMAO at your non-responses and lies

Yes Trump is coddling Dictators, far more than anything Obama did that you had a hissy fit over.
Trump's tax giveaway continues 50-years of class warfare on the middle and lower classes
Wow, you managed to give a non-answer AND A LIE about Hillary in one sentence. Well done, Trump.
Doesn't care about allies. Pathetic
He has trashed more than McCain, dumbstein
Trump's Foundation was shutdown. Clinton's got an A rating. Trump is making hundreds of millions off the Presidency.

The Mueller report was very clear he obstructed justice.


I guess you gave your brain to Trump. Sad.
