    Trump willing to meet with Iran

    Iran has currency trouble and there could be an opportunity for change? Probably a bigger nut, or, get rid of a hardliner? https://www.bloombergquint.com/markets/2018/07/31/iran-guards-head-calls-on-president-rouhani-to-halt-rial-s-drop#gs.FOP5DgI

    North Korea Summit

    Yep, getting back servicemen is good, but this is not.

    DW. Dislocated patella and torn mcl

    Knee cap dislocation does not necessarily mean tears Torn MCL sometimes goes along with torn meniscus. If just torn MCL, he will miss half the season. Probably not bring him back if we are sucking, if we are doing well, then might bring him along
  5. Please don't throw me in that briar patch
  6. Impeachment then treasonous. The battle of hyperbole. Stupid to call for his impeachment, stupid to call their political move treasonous. If there were only more words......
  7. Yes, I definitely see more "runs" in his future
  8. Well, you have started about 38k Trump threads, so you would be the expert. They seem to run together for me however.
  9. The whole "Trump is now desperate" thing is kinda silly He has acted like a Tasmanian devil during the campaign and all through his presidency. In fact, he is probably calmer now than ever. He is more like an EF2 at this point. We have seen him much wilder

  14. Think Dems will gain more traction from Trumps infidelity. Said it many times. Media has hyperventilated for 20 months and not much to show for it. Collusion will be elusive. Girly stuff is just sitting there

    Brett Kavanaugh to SCOTUS

    Like the NC 12th district? Guess both parties have been in office for a multitude of years and you complain about it now? And, would Mel Watt ever have been a congressman if not for the gerrymandering? Could be that other districts if drawn better could have spread out the AA vote to help more districts, but the other side to that coin is, a Mel Watt might not ever have emerged. Each party has saw benefit in the 12th or it would have been changed.

    Brett Kavanaugh to SCOTUS

    Then the people will have to vote their interests and elect people who represent them. That is sort of how the constitution was written. The problem is, that the people are stupid and want to stay that way. 30 second ads used to do it, now INTSTAGRAM is all they need to make decisions. Just a few demonizations and you get their vote. But to override the whole voting process by electing judges to give you what you want because you are too lazy to get it through your representative further screws up the system. Your local "representative" is the way to go. Now, if a D or R is bought off, then you have to go elsewhere And as far as the abortion card that is played with regularity in every election and every SCOTUS nomination, just how illegal would it be? Conservatives should probably leave it alone because if it goes back to the states, not telling what will happen, probably much worse. But besides that, Roberts want entertain it and it would probably now be 6-3 in favor that it is precedent.

    Brett Kavanaugh to SCOTUS

    They are to be champions of the law, not people and not business, the law. Congress writes the laws, they are the "champions". That is why we elect them every 2 years as they are to be close to "the people"

    Brett Kavanaugh to SCOTUS

    Wow. Walking right wing nut job litmus test.......insert name. Yeah, we heard it all BEFORE any pick was made. This is all just the normal hyperbole. Even Ruth G and A Scalia got about 90 votes in the senate and they were definitely more ideological than most. But things have changed. Everyone is the devil now, everyone. Or so says Fox and MSNBC and CNN. So it must be true
  21. The new offense, the new OC and the new QB/RB/WR looks The rest is just dressing

    Brett Kavanaugh to SCOTUS

    Probably as close to Kennedy as you will get. Will be a swing vote Lots of conservatives not happy. Replaces Scalia with a conservative similar Replaces Kennedy with a swing guy similar For all the rhetoric, not much changing
  23. https://www.peacecorps.gov/news/library/peace-corps-announces-2018-top-volunteer-producing-schools/ I remember, 30 years ago, that the Peace Corps was the primary way that people out of college "helped" people in other nations. Not sure if the participation rate is as high percentage wise now. How many Huddlers have been to another country in a humanitarian capacity? Been to several on business. I have done quite a few domestic helps as in floods and tornadoes, but only one outside the 50 states. Basically Puerto Rico (51st state), some 10 years ago. We painted houses and ran water lines for people with no running water. Hot as crap every, single, day. Anyway, might go with my church back to Guatemala later this year. We have one remote town that we go to every year and continue building buildings for schools and such. It seems to work well as we now know them, then know us, etc.
