    Except that "study" remains garbage.

    I mean, that their methodology is a hot mess isn't exactly news, so it's really weird that the same nonsense keeps getting reposted by sentient brainfarts. Cato institute has an up-to-date analysis of the most egregious flaws:

    Did anyone post about Trump's bizarre word salad on Russia/Afghanistan? We know he doesn't read, or listen to his advisors, and he knows more than the Generals so who's whispering this revisionist history in his ear?

    And WTF is up with these Game of Throne style posters?

    Interesting commentary on how public we can expect the Mueller report's findings to be, by one of the people who crafted the SC regs:

    Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is questioning how terms such as "white nationalist" and "white supremacist" became offensive in the U.S.

    “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” King asked...

    Never say "no" if you can ramble on in about 5,000 words which say anything but.

    "It's a stark threat toward an ally in the region that has partnered with the US in the fight against ISIS. Turkey views some Kurdish groups in the region as terrorist organizations and Kurds make up the majority of US-allied fighters operating in Syria in the civil war against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
    CNN reported on Thursday that the first US military ground equipment has been withdrawn from Syria, according to an administration official with direct knowledge of the operation.
    Last week, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan publicly lashed out at US national security adviser John Bolton for saying the US withdrawal was contingent upon Turkey's pledge not to attack US-backed Kurdish fighters in Syria once troops leave.
    "Bolton made a serious mistake. If he thinks that way, he is in a big mistake. We will not compromise," Erdoğan said.
    "Russia, Iran and Syria have been the biggest beneficiaries of the long term U.S. policy of destroying ISIS in Syria - natural enemies. We also benefit but it is now time to bring our troops back home. Stop the ENDLESS WARS!" Trump continued in the second tweet."

    We'll see how much is posturing and how much isn't from Erdogan.

    Right, as if Trump actually has cogent, comprehensive foreign policies and plans.

    There was already talk about shutting off his water, what about Captain Crazy's data plan?

    It looks like another example that money doesn't buy class. But someone did manage to fix it already.

    And that's Why I'm Voting Leave.

    So many places in DC would have jumped at this for a similar price too. Without having to fill silver gravy bowls with unopened sauce packets.

    Sad to see this has gone unnoticed:

    "I have a substantial chance of winning. If I win, I don't want to broadcast to the enemy exactly what my plan is," the Republican nominee said at an NBC-hosted commander-in-chief forum in New York. The gathering was the first time both Trump and his rival Hillary Clinton have shared the same stage in this election, albeit at separate times.

    And yet...

    I find it confounding that the Republican majority in the Senate is supporting dictatorship in the United States of America.

    The irony of your statement, if he was a dictator there wouldn't be a government shutdown. Please get some perspective.

    dic·tate
    [dictate]
    VERB
    dictates (third person present)

    lay down authoritatively; prescribe.
    "the tsar's attempts to dictate policy" · [more]
    synonyms:
    give orders to · order about/around · boss (about/around) ·

    In other words, not going with the majority. And more specifically, constraining some of the majority with threats.
    .

  26. #4976
    That's not what dictator means. Hint is that the word ends in -or and not -er it isn't conjugated from dictate like that and has it's own definition.

    dictator

    /dɪkˈteɪtə/

    noun

    a ruler with total power over a country, typically one who has obtained control by force.

    synonyms:autocrat, monocrat, absolute ruler; More

    a person who behaves in an autocratic way.

    (in ancient Rome) a chief magistrate with absolute power, appointed in an emergency.


    Trump doesn't have absolute power.

    His threat to use emergency powers for a non-emergency comes dangerously close to the definition, though.

    We are already there. Ordering something like 36,000 employees back to work without pay and without the risk to life or property that the law would require for such a move. Just to shield himself from the outrage the public is slowly waking up to. And of course the Senate and it's turtle has given up pretty much all their responsibility at this point.
