Is this the same Scott W that posts ad nauseum on the Steamboat Today blog
So now Scott W. is telling us what type of costumes we can wear. Good Grief. I wear a Bavarian outfit for Oktoberfest- makes the Bier taste better, I wear a sombrero and a big moustache for Cinco de Mayo - makes the margarita taste better, I wear my Sunday best for Kentucky Derby - makes the mint julep taste better. Went to a Halloween party this year as a cat burglar. Which was I disparaging - cats, burglars or both.
Safe spaces for college students. Good grief. University of Minnesota. 1970 - 1974. Vietnam War, protests, tear gas. No safe spaces. No cookies, cupcakes. We all survived. We accepted there were people with other views. We engaged in dialogue.
Dan S, keep those posts coming. they are a constant reminder of how we ended up with President elect Trump.
In the category of what goes around comes around, AKA payback is a beach, AKA OOPS
Here’s Senator Chris Coons of Delaware, basically begging Senate Republicans to reinstate the filibuster for nominations:
BOLDUAN: But Senator, also a rules change the Democrats put in place could also come back to bite you. I mean, I don't get into the weeds, but Democrats made it much easier than a simple majority can push through presidential nominees. Democrats did it for themselves and now Republicans can do it as well.
COONS: That's exactly right. The filibuster no longer acts as emergency brake on the nomination --
BOLDUAN: So do you regret that?
COONS: I do regret that. I frankly think many of us will regret that in this Congress because it would have been a terrific speed bump, potential emergency brake, to have in our system to slow down the confirmation of extreme nominees. We're instead going to have to depend on the American people, on thorough hearings and/or persuading a number of Republicans in those cases where President-elect Trump might nominate someone, who is just too extreme to the American people.
“Dear opponents who I have consistently demonized as the root of all evil for the past few years: please give up a power we gave you to save us from the consequences of our own decisions.
From - Thoughts from the ammo line.
"The white working class, indeed the middle classes of every color and gender, have had it up to here with the morale-crushing insults and psychological beatings by our snotty, politically correct elites in academia, government, Hollywood and the media. This election said, “No! The beatings will NOT continue. Hit me again at your own risk. Call me vile names and I will see that the other guy wins.” And it was so."
Looks like about 4 million of HRC's 2.2 million advantage comes from California. - Perfect - Let's let CA. determine who is president each and every year. Then we wouldn't need a campaign or an election. Scott - you sound surprised about a Democratic Routt County. Interesting, as the last time a majority of Routt County votes went for the Republican candidate was 2000.
Dan S. Read it and weep. Maureen Dowd
You need a whaaaambulance. LOL
Dan S. whines about the "treatment" Mary received. I wonder if he even reads the hateful rhetoric he posts. I think John W. said it best when he posted his definition of bigot. I am amazed that Dan S. continues to be allowed in this forum. Ah yes, free speech. What a hoot.
Chris, is voting to move a bill forward the same as supporting it. Or is voting to move the bill forward done to get the bill to the final vote. I believe when the final vote was held to determine whether the ACA became law not a single republican voted for it.
