Put drunk drivers in rehab instead. We can't stop back alley abortions so lets decide that abortion is a right and the federal government should pay for it.

Oh, how I do hate the word "reform":

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) are eyeing a new round of election-year talks aimed at winning a deal on international corporate tax reform.

Any deal would allow companies to bring back to the United States overseas profits at a reduced tax rate and set a new worldwide rate on future international earnings. Ryan and Schumer worked jointly last year on a package, but differed over how much of the revenue from reform should be targeted toward new infrastructure funding.

http://tinyurl.com/j8lx2gj

The reform being a massive increase in US corporate taxes, that whole "inversion" thing. With a one-off shakedown discount. And all of the new loot to be shoveled out the backdoor in new spending to favored interests.

Donald Trump is poised for the strongest primary performance in modern history

For months, the press and the Republican establishment alike have been expecting the Trump bubble to implode. Now that it's clear Trump isn't going anywhere, we're seeing stories about a long slog of a campaign or even a brokered convention.

But there's a very real possibility that, far from those kinds of days of reckoning, Donald Trump could actually "run the table." Ironically, Trump not only could win, he could win more decisively than any non-incumbent Republican contestant for the nomination since the dawn of the modern primary system.

I really would love to know what he and Cruz talked about in their secret meeting last year.  I can't imagine Trump told him "I'm going to blow your ass through the door, but we'll get back together when I win the nomination," so what could they have agreed to?

Those are the youngest, newest crop of conservative people, a-holes, fighting it out with the vermin on a daily basis. So an attack calling supporters of a candidate for president flat-out failures and sexual predators is ok as long as it's the ALT-right that does it. Thanks for the tip guys. What the fuck am I doing here.

113 "The [alt.right] are Nazis/White Supremacists."

Some of the bloc being called alt.right are. Perhaps "some" is too strong. A few?

I'm not actually seeing white supremacy or Nazi stuff being all that widespread among self-described alt.righters.

A fair number of people in that bloc are instead just whites who feel that they are not bought in to the malarkey about persons of white ethnicity having been some horrible historical plague of awfulness inflicted upon every other ethnic group on the planet, thanks, and who are also not especially enthused about the idea that it's necessary for whites to be engaged in endless autoflagellatory self-abasement over imagined crimes against nonwhites.

Which should not be an especially controversial position to be holding, to simply insist upon the dignity of one's ethnicity and defend it from unfactual insult. That to do so is controversial should tell you something about where the trend of discourse is going.

Yes, it's politics. They're on the home stretch. The Donald is who he is, I don't get why people are upset that he's being Donaldish. And this is entirely Sarah Palin's M.O. I don't understand why anyone is surprised. Trump has a legitimate shot at being nominated by the Republican Party. Endorsing him doesn't mean "I agree with everything he says and has done," it mean's "I'm on board with this guy, and let's see where this goes."

Exactly. Trump is a total wild card, and *he* is the only guy who was talking sense and getting heard. Even my preferred Cruz was wobbly on immigration until Trump stomped all over what had become the narrow slice of opinion allowed on so many political discussions.

So, the MSM-GOPe alliance kills Trump....and they go right back to crapping all over conservatives and telling us that's the best they can do, you have to work within the system, blah blah blah. Not like they'd support Cruz swooping in and picking up all the lead.

Not a Trump supporter, exactly, but a BIG fan of how he's changed the game.

I'm not a Trumpkin -- I don't have a dog in the hunt at all -- but it would be worth voting for Trump just to make every single one of the aforementioned heads explode like water balloons on a hot sidewalk.

Also, the chattering classes in the UK seem to be completely horrified by Trump, and they actually are talking about banning him from entry to the country, formally and permanently. It would be incredibly fun to watch Whitehall and Westminster realize that they've just profoundly alienated the new President of their most important ally, and have to engage in an elaborately obsequious apology dance trying to worm their way back into Teh Donald's good graces.

It would be even more fun if DT simply ignored the Brits. If he didn't even post an ambassador to the Court of St. James's. Refused to accept the credentials of their ambassador. Didn't sign any of the pending arms and trade deals which the UK is desperate to lock in. Just nothing.

152 As for the alt Right crapitola, it's what drove me away from Lucianne.com. I had been a daily commentator there since the site debuted, but, then Romney, and anyone who voiced even the mildest criticism of him was labeled a mouth-breathing illiterate Nazi. When they dared to protest that it was unfair to characterize them that way, they were instantly banned. I was not one of the ones commenting either for or against Romney, but, the whole thing was very distasteful and left me with a very poor opinion of the site administrators, so I left the site and never looked back. I understand that politics is passion for a lot of folks, but, with that said, I think Mr. Wilson's writing about the alt Right was inflammatory, dismissive, and more than a little unfair. I hope the whole thing does not destroy this site. If this post leads to my banning, I will miss all of you.

I don't think Trump is going to be as destructive to the GOP as much as people think he will be. I'd make the argument that Ted Cruz has the power to be a more destructive force to the GOP and really change its direction. Lest anyone think I just loathe Trump - I do not. I actually quite like him - just not as President.

158 141 G of K I think I wasnt clear enough. The Gamers and the Libertarians are not Nazis. There is however a subset, of undetermined size, that loves some neo nazi stuff. I dont think its as big as it seems, but the crazy peopleare the loudest. And by crazy people I meant neo nazis, not gamers or libertarians Posted by: ThunderB, Bitchin Betty at January 21, 2016 10:16 AM (zOTsN) Right, I assumed you were conflating the two. There are tons of gamers who put nazi and n-word shit in their handles and pictures, and that's because they're spoiled 13 year old idiot children. Of course, this is all valid when discussing a republican candidate - and you'll see republicans make these low blows so that 1. the lefties don't have to 2. they can tell their mom they got inteviewd on teh news But bringing up Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, the black panthers, la raza, van jones, or anything to do with any demo is inappropriate. And this double standard is enforced by a certain kind of nanny on the right, as well.

I said this yesterday, so I'll say it again. I don't think Trump is going to be as destructive to the GOP as much as people think he will be. I'd make the argument that Ted Cruz has the power to be a more destructive force to the GOP and really change its direction.


That's certainly possible. 

But I also think that if Cruz was the only problem in the GOPe's way (in the election), they'd have a far easier time getting rid of him than Trump.

172 "Apparently someone with a copy of Windows 8 found his computer installing Windows 10 without any prompt to him."

Microsoft screwed up at one point and included the W10 upgrade on the list of automatic scheduled bugfix upgrades to earlier releases. They apologized and yanked it at once. But that was a while back, three months or so, I think.

Another good reason to never let upgrades run unattended and automatic. Always inspect the list of packages that are due to be downloaded and installed and manually approve them first.

185 But I also think that if Cruz was the only problem in the GOPe's way (in the election), they'd have a far easier time getting rid of him than Trump. ------------ Agree. My argument is this. Cruz has the potential to be a more revolutionary force. Trump seems to be more a temporary disruption. But I'm not sure he is really going to disrupt how things are done. Trump's big issue is immigration. Well it is no secret that the public has been against the GOPe and the Dems on that issue for many many years. Perhaps a Trump victory finally drives that home. I suspect many would find that to be worth it. But outside of that one issue - Trump does not appear to be much different from the uniparty. Trump is a boomer with boomer beliefs. He isn't likely going to lead a revolution. A Cruz victory, on the other hand, potentially is a radical shift away from the GOPe. Not just in terms of ideology but also a generational shift away from Boomers to Gen X. A fulfilling and potentially sustaining of the Reagan revolution. None of this is a certainty. It is just how I kind of see it. If you want a revolution, Cruz is the better option.

He saves his sharpest remarks for Trump supporters. He got called on his remarks by Nero, and thats when he said he meant Alt.Right. I still think he painted with too broad a brush. As I said Alt.Right seems to mainly young people, gamers and libertarians. But there is a neo nazi subset who seem to be glued to their computers all day. And yes they are Neo Nazi, for real. In addition to calling out Rick Wilson for being overbroad and crude, it would be helpful if Trump people (and although I prefer Cruz I guess you could lump me in here) were as vocal calling out the neo nazis who are polluting thier space.

208 The biggest thing I hate about the Trump attacks on Cruz is this: He's a business man. A very successful business man. There is absolutely no way that he doesn't know that the loan Cruz took out was a perfectly, average, legal everyday sort of collateralized loan from the bank his wife worked at *thunder**horses screaming*Goldman-Sachs. There is nothing, zip, zero, nada, illegal or suspicious about this. Now, if Cruz had gotten one of those magic, no-interest, government guaranteed, no*winkwink*payback loans the Democrats and Obama And Hillary! and all of their cronies are so fond of...yeah, sure, go nuts. But, this tack of trying to make the perfectly legal and average simply fits in- with the Left's tactic of exploiting the economic ignorance and paranoia or stupid people. I was hoping Trump's entry into the race would help get rid of that cancer in our politics, but- Nope. This sort of thing makes me much less enthused over a Trump Presidency. Which i would like to be assuming Cruz doesn't make it as the nom.

233 Re: Davos If the "global elite" i.e. unelected bureaucrats who are really running the government that I'm supposed to be in charge of (in theory at least) are afraid of Donald Trump's Hair becoming preezy, then that's more the reason to consider supporting him. Maybe it's just me, but I'm way past tired of being blamed for all the world's ills and feel no need for us to give up anything to the rest of the world. During our history, we demonstrated the power of freedom and individuality and in so doing, raised the standard of living worldwide as no other society has done, peacefully, I might add. If no other countries wished to follow our lead and transform their nations into the same model of freedom that we established, that's not our problem. Their failures are the reason why they're so bitter and like immature children, seek to blame us for their own failures. See virtually any ME country for an example. These global elitists want to destroy us and seem to be doing a pretty good job of it thanks to our spineless leaders who dare not utter a word in our defense lest they be labeled as some sort of xenophobic, racist knuckle-dragger. Trump seems to be the only one standing up to them and willing to promote what were once American values. IMHO, we've been sold out by the Prog/Com Left who align with their beliefs that there's something inherently wrong with American. I'm way past tired of being blamed for other people's problems and failures. All I want is to live my life freely and peaceably to pursue happiness.

America was a repudiation of all that, and they will never stop hating us for it.

Don't think so. Late primary 2008 when it looked like Romney's campaign was about to fall apart -- that was a street fight.  Especially since a lot of "new friends" flooded into the blog to note their concern. Electable, Supreme Court nominees -- you know the drill.

The GOPe fold since they took the Senate in 2014 has sane'd up a lot of folks this time around. Passions of the moment aside, it's two arguable conservatives fighting for the final prize, which is the best of all possible worlds.

A fair number of people in that bloc are instead just whites who feel that they are not bought in to the malarkey about persons of white ethnicity having been some horrible historical plague of awfulness inflicted upon every other ethnic group on the planet, thanks, and who are also not especially enthused about the idea that it's necessary for whites to be engaged in endless autoflagellatory self-abasement over imagined crimes against nonwhites.

298 Ace wrote a two parter on it in fact, on July 24 and 25 he writes, in part I did not know there were so many white supremacists (though, I have to say, of course, there were only about six buzzing at my face, but it's more I've ever seen at the same time), and 3, while I have of course known there were racists in, or adjacent to, the conservative movement forever, and have really not denied this (I tend to instead point out, for the sake of context, all those xenophobic bitter clingers in the Democrat Party that so bothered our Lord King Barack Obama in his Glorious Ascent), I am right now thinking that there are more white supremacists than I previously acknowledged, and am currently up in the air as to whether to dismiss this solely as a fringe-of-the-fringe phenomenon. So that's what Gabe was reacting to. As I commented on Twitter: I think this is the ugliest development I've seen online. It came out of nowhere and it came all at once, and when it came, there was no ignoring it, and certainly there was no denying it. I was saying: It's as if, on the heels of last month's raacial shooting, someone gave the GO code: Now we show our hand. What makes it really annoying is that the Social Race Warriors are using many tactics of the Social Justice Warriors -- swarming, attempting to pressure by dogpiling, argument-by-insult, etc. It's like a Reeces Peanut Butter cup of awfulness. "You got your Social Justice Warrior mob tactics in my Racial Purity!" It really is something. Expect to see some coverage of this by the liberal press in the coming days. They have made their presence known, for good or for ill.*

Although I never actually supported him I liked what he did to shake it up, but I am very weary of him at this point. ------------- He is to me nothing more than your typical politician albeit one who commands a presence more than most. He is not anti-government. He brings a different style, and he has found an issue that resonates.

310 Reading Jonah Goldberg's article I get the impression he's not happy, talking about establishment republicans vs conservatives and the fact that Trump is neither. Trump has the ability to change things that the establishment republicans or the conservatives won't touch. Our military, if reorganized with common sense, could be stronger and keep our country safer with a 25% cut to the overall spending. No democrat could ever propose that and no republican or conservative would ever mention it. Only an outsider who believes in actually getting value for the dollar would go there. The same thing goes in education, energy and a number of other areas.

RICK WILSON: Well, look, first off, I think that`s absurd. I think there is definitely still a very significant portion of the party that is a limited government conservatism based faction of the overall coalition.

Now, the screamers and the crazy people on the alt right as they call it, you know, who love Donald Trump, who have plenty of Hitler iconography in their Twitter icons.

HAYES: They sure do. I can back that up.

WILSON: Who think Donald Trump is the greatest thing, oh, it`s something. But the fact of the matter is, most of them are childless single men who masturbate to anime. They`re not real and political players. These are not people who matter in the overall course of humanity.
***************************************************

I think it's pretty clear that he is referring to a subset of Trump supporters in the Alt.Right who are exactly as he describes them. Was he trying to blur the lines between them and normal Trump supporters? Of course....he is a sleazy little fvck. But he didn't say it. He hinted. He played with words. He did what he always does.

And particularly for going against her citizens and others in her government who had concerns. Saw the TIME editor announcing this and she said that this was key. She painted as some sort of bravery to insist on "helping" these masses despite strong opposition. Same reason why the Left loves Obama - because he is willing to overreach his executive powers to make or defy laws that they believe are the right thing to do.

334 I am not advocating the taking of rights from anyone. I am arguing that they need to be confronted on the field of ideas if they are neo nazis. Didnt realize that was a controversial position.

As for cites, see Aces article HERE in the archives on people polluting his timeline and using the word "cuckservative"
---
ThunderB, I have not seen enough incidence of this to warrant comment. I don't do Twitter so I just have to take ace's word for what's going on there, and for all I or he knows folks may have just been yanking his chain. The controversy if any is over how much energy any of us should put into a problem that may not even exist.

Is Trump (or anyone else making) them policy promises? If so we could argue that. And even if there are some, and their ideas are reprehensible, remember this is the big tent republican party that insists we tolerate folks who think sodomy and infanticide is okay. So my willingness to play enforcer on their bugaboos is minimal.

Further, how would we go about it? It's kind of hard to argue against whites' racial grievances (at least as incorrect) when that's all the dems do for their constituents, and in fact members of the obama regime have bragged about replacing WASP civilization with their multiculturalism. Heck Donn Brazille did that election night when she talked about proving the dems could elect a president without whites (in context she meant without 50%+ among whites, but with majorities among other groups, but it's pretty easy to take hostility from her statement).

As to cuckservative, it is a devastatingly accurate description of the congress and its supporters. They sought to tie it to neo nazis in hope of stopping its use to stave of the damage to themselves, not over some principle.

342 Also, the chattering classes in the UK seem to be completely horrified by Trump, and they actually are talking about banning him from entry to the country, formally and permanently. === I seriously wonder if we can trust Britain any more. They seem to be eagerly submitting to Islam. They host radical Islamic clerics and terrorists. They allow Muslims to commit atrocities like Rotherham, and arrested the father of one of the girls involved who tried to save her. Now they think that calling for a temporary pause in Muslim immigration is an unspeakable crime against humanity? They're insane. Or worse, they're on the other side.

Trump isn't a general, so he will leave the specifics up to the generals. O-Care - plan is to expand and improve, not repeal === Completely false. He says in every speech that he will have Obamacare REPEALED, and replaced with something better. No plan has been specified yet, but he has said he wants insurance companies to be able to sell insurance in any state to create competition. I think he has said the rule preventing insurance companies from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions should remain. And he is NOT calling for single-payer, for those who keep repeating that lie.

And that NYC is only liveable because of the efforts of Rudy Giuliani who was, get this, a REPUBLICAN.

But nobody ever says anything. The Democrats don't want to be reminded, and the Republicans are afraid to. It's a perfect issue for the GOP to run on, but they'd rather hate-fap Donald Trump.

Not sure how long he did that, but at least he had some experience out here in the real world. This new crop of actors don't seem to have any such experience. Hence, it's like watching aliens do something. I can no longer relate and haven't been able to for a long time. If any of them were to swap places with me right now, I doubt they could handle it.

So they would go Lake County?

Posted by: Methos yes some of them seem to be eastern european. And no they dont show up here because they get confronted and/or shown the door. They do show up at 4 chan and zero hedge and Twitter. Two of those I avoid for that reason. But they certainly show up on pro Trump threads, or anti Trump threads on other sites and on Twitter.

541 I often get the impression the white supremacist types (besides the eastern Europeans) are mostly Soros funded agitprop liars.  They might each have 200 various IDs and cruise around spewing crap on 4chan, and any other place that will have them.  That stupid Roof kid/murderer maybe just got caught up in the hate, idk, but he got his rant from 4chan, not from his own life.  He said he had to do something because of Obama's war on whites via Trayvon or something, but he basically copied his final words from a 4chan (posing as a?) Klanner.

Soros well understands how to create instability in a country, as he seems to be supporting the chaos of Muslim mass migration/invasion of Europe.  From the globalist view I suppose tearing down all western structure is an necessary first step, as the atheist Marxists learned.  They have been in the US infiltrating forever.

The left messed with Santorums name on Google, and it seems the right also does some of this.  A guy from my hometown (I'd never heard of him) was allegedly a friend of Breitbart, and praised for his work.  Part of his secretive work was undermining the enemy via kinda sneaky stuff.  I guess subterfuge is all part of the game, and its hard to root out.

The upset and caps was because I made a quip about using and losing them the way the gope does us and somehow you took that to mean embrace them. The caps are just frustration on my part because I thought I was careful in picking my words, but apparently wasn't.

591 Yeah, it's just politics. And if Cruz wins the primary, you know the Dims will try to use that against him, and worse. So he should be grateful to Trump for giving him an opportunity to counter that blow now. ------------ If Cruz does somehow managed to win the primary (which I think is a big if - though I am hopeful), he will have been pretty battle-tested, which should serve him well in the general.

In addition Dole and other old timers have said they prefer Trump. Stories are being written about how now Trump is GOPes preferred candidate I dont think thats true. I think they have no idea how to attack him since conventional attacks have not worked so far. If they do prefer Trump, its because they think he will lose the general and they would rather work with President Clinton than President Cruz Therefore they attack Cruz, do nothing about Trump and work for a Hillary win.

There's a defensible school of thought that would explain this as "gope prefers Trump to Cruz".

However, since the basis is the ad buys, I think it is more likely that they want to knock Cruz out of the 2nd place spot so that when the consolidation begins in earnest, one of their guys is there to benefit. It remains to be seen whether the 59% not currently on the Trump train are actually opposed to Trump, or if they simply have other preferences.

660 I'm just tired of hearing about a president needing to be "presidential". Fuck that. Will you cut taxes? Will you do something about illegals? Will you stop the global warming bullshit? If the answer is yes to those question, I don't give a fuck if you install a stripper pole in the oval office and have orgies at Camp David every weekend.

662 Former Republican Party Chairman Haley Barbour played the part of elder statesman Friday, warning delegates to the Republican Leadership Conference that the party must embrace compromise to win more elections, particularly the 2016 presidential contest. "In a two-party system, purity is the enemy of victory," Barbour said. "Never forget that the purpose of winning is to govern. And never forget, you have to be a big party before you can win elections." The former Mississippi governor drew a standing ovation for his lecture, but the same crowd spent the afternoon cheering a parade of archconservatives eschewing the calls for pragmatism.

668 Unless you're going to coffee a horde on a regular basis, I'd say buy a Kuerig single shot that takes K cups like this one. There are a million different models with somewhat different features. At about $0.50 a cup it is every bit as good as S-Bucks or other elite coffee providers at a fraction the cost. If you've got a dozen coffee drinkers living with you it's probably cheaper to go with a traditional coffee maker but if you're talking just a couple of cups at a time, this the way to go. http://tinyurl.com/zfc544r

675 Well great, good luck getting LIVs to vote for the adult in the room. Rubio and Paul have tried to go in that direction, Rubio talking about rap, etc. And what was the reaction on the right? OMFG!! How dare he talk about that stuff, when we have a $19T debt to deal with. Because it's simply impossible to both discuss rap music AND worry about the debt simultaneously.

Thank you for making my point. As someone observed here they other day, Cruz looks like an insurance salesman from 1962. So for him to try to look "cool" is an effing joke.

734 I roast my own coffee beans. I also own more than one type of coffee brewer. Does that make me a coffee snob? I'll confess to coffee geek. It's just a hobby I enjoy. Coffee geeks roast their own beans and enjoy it. Coffee snobs tell me I'm doing it wrong for drinking Folgers.

736 I grow my own beans, force my civet cat to eat them, then I take them to an African witch doctor and a Catholic priest and they do...something with them. Then I grind them in a grinder made by NASA. Finally I use the grounds in a coffee maker designed by James Napier hiself using only pure peruvian spring water. Are the beans shade-grown fair trade?

750 I have two ways of making coffee that don't require electricity. The first is a traditional Italian stovetop espresso maker. The iconic hourglass shaped things you may have seen. Water goes in the bottom, steam passes through the grounds in the middle, lovely lovely espresso collects in the top. They take a little management and might occasionally explode if you get the water level wrong, but whatevs. The other is a French press. I'd used it only for tea when my espresso maker broke. I was looking for a way to make cowboy coffee and how could I ever filter out the grounds? Oh right, I own a French press. I used to be a coffee snob and I do quite enjoy fresh ground coffee, but the Spanish espresso that sells for $3.50 is really quite good and quite the value. Cafe Bustelo, and there's another one I forget.

752 If anything they show about Trump is negative, how do they keep from getting smeared themselves?

I can't think of anything that would be a big deal that Trump might have done that wouldn't come back on the Clinton's also.

An offer of a bribe? Tit for tat?

One then has to wonder why they continued to do business/accept donations from him. (if they did)

This is all going to be innuendo and spin.

We DO have the facts about slick willie though and I'm sure that Trump will feel no compunctions about showing more of it to the point where even the lapdog media has to report it.

757 Posted by: Ghost of kari at January 21, 2016 01:10 PM (xuouz) I was always wary of Trump, but I was willing to keep an open mind until he went after Cruz, not on matters of policy, but on the stupid birther issue. I think his swipes at Cruz since have been pretty underhanded (not that I was ever under the impression that Trump is a man of principle) and so is his whoring after the ethanol vote to win Iowa. My opinion of him has certainly become negative over the past week - but that's because of the crap that's been flowing out of Trump's own big mouth, not because I woke up and decided I wanted to be a "hater." I think a lot of people here who have expressed reservations about Trump were certainly willing to praise him for moving the Overton window about immigration - but the people who are his most fervent fans seem to rationalize everything he does as some sort of brilliant chess move, instead of admitting The Donald sticks his foot in it quite a lot.

761 Gotta love capitalism. The same system of "markets" that keep bringing better and better stuff to the masses, gives us the reprehensible douchebag. It never fails. Whatever product group, today we're talking coffee, there's going to be people who NEED to spend more for a more obscure brand. One you've never heard of, ideally. Beans, grinders, coffee makers, etc. You could spend thousands making a cup of coffee. At home! It's coffee. My favorite genre of douche is the axe douche. 300 for an axe? You can get a chainsaw for less.

765 I'm not as worried about Trump domestically as I am about his foreign policy. He's recently said that both Israel and the 'Palestinians' have things they both need to change. I'm sure he has revised that statement since then but his knee jerk responses concern me. Declarations by Presidents are not easily walked back in international affairs.

My favorite American coffee brand is Community Coffee, out of Baton Rouge, LA. They sell on-line, too. Their Dark Roast is yummy, and is what you get if you are on an offshore rig in the Gulf.

769 The "I'm not a Trump fan, but he's been good for the party" types will be back on this board late in 2016, whining about the incoming Clinton/Agnew administration, instead of laughing at the local Dem apparatchik's exploded head. Caveated Trump support won't burn anything down, and I'll take "four years of liberal Trump" with a smile if only to raze the GOP and start The Rebuild. More of the GOP same is worse than (almost) anything, and the "caveated support" is like all the malcontents aimlessly standing around in a circle with torches and kindling, talking about "let it burn"...long enough for the commissars to come round them up for "thoughtcrime with intent to arson."

I have made plenty of good coffee using a funnel and filter paper.  In a pinch, you can use a paper towel instead of filter paper.  This takes up less space but if you have something to boil water over the fire of burning furniture and something to hold the coffee as it comes out of the funnel, you can enjoy a nice cup of joe along with your meal of roasted human flesh during the burning times.

774 I think it's awesome that the national GOP is doing doing so fabulously right now, and has such a rosy future outlook, that Rick Wilson feels like we can just shit all over so many potential new members because they're not cool enough.

Oh, sure, he mentioned neo-nazis, but I think that was really just to tie them together with weeaboos, gamers, MRAs, Bronies and Trump supporters and discredit the whole lot of them all and say, "Guess what? we don't even WANT your votes, your money, or your support."

Do you ever see Democrats doing this? No. Democrats just think, "Okay, you're a little weird, but your vote is as good as anyone else's", and then they say, "I understand your concerns, and I thank you for your support".

Consultants like Rick Wilson are a big part of the reason Democrats win.
