    Imagine still trying to argue with those still defending Trump as though something you say is going to make them see the light after 2 years.

    At this point I understand the Trump defender more than I understand the ones trying to convince them not to be a Trump defender. Facts are irrelevant. Logic and reason are irrelevant. He's the leader of their team and they're going to the mat for him. That is the only fact that is important.

    I was going to respond to you in the Trump thread but I'm trying to stay away from it out of respect for its denizens. I am totally on board with you not wanting your tax dollars propping up some millennials with no ambition. Cool. But your wealth redistribution argument seems like it's missing some points. You and I prop up the entire government through our taxes. Amazon, Google, Apple, GM, et al. pay NO FEDERAL TAXES. Many extremely wealthy people (like Trump) pay little or nothing in taxes. How exactly is the little guy paying 30% or more of their income when they have comparitively little wealth while obscenely wealthy people and corporations pay almost nothing NOT wealth redistribution? You and I are getting screwed and you're complaining about some kids (including poor and underprivileged kids who may have no other options) getting a free ride to becoming productive members of society? Seems like weird priorities to me.

    My son is in Beijing for the semester right now - talked to him this morning (our time, 12 hours behind) and he said he was about to go out for a run. He's been working out mostly at the gym but apparently it just changed to some beautiful fall weather. He says the air hasn't been too bad, but it supposedly gets much worse in the fall and winter when everyone starts burning coal for heat. He'll be back right before Christmas - had talked about switching to stay for the full year but has now thankfully dropped that idea. One of the TA's he had for Chinese class last semester here in the US has now graduated and is working for McKinsey in Beijing. They met up this week for a drink at some fancy place and my son - who didn't take any nice clothes - wore a Hawaiian shirt. USA! I've been super stingy on my calories lately and after 7 weeks of dieting and starting to run again have now officially reached half of my 30-pound weight loss goal. My wife is the one who got us going on the diet train and now she's irked it's "so easy" for me to lose weight. To which I say let's see you put up a 30-mile week on 1,500 daily calories and see how easy it is. Of course part of my diet has been cutting down to 1 beer a day (2 on weekends) so I'm sober and sensible enough not to say things like that within earshot. Gonna keep taking it slow and building my mileage until I lose at least another 10 pounds, then begin to think about ramping up the intensity of running. Maybe the Coastal Delaware Marathon in mid-April....

    The problem is you guys just change your definition of wrongdoing to whatever is one step beyond what the president did, and then when that new definition is hit you one-up to something one step higher and pretend like that first thing is totally normal. @apalmer is completely right. If irrefutable evidence came out that a quid pro quo was involved you would just move one level up, pretend that a quid pro quo is totally normal there, and say "well it's not like he <insert new higher level of wrong-doing here>". Trump has said as much himself with the whole 5th ave quote. He knows he has you guys wrapped around his finger to the point where nothing he can do would lose you because you will always just make excuses for him. Though I do admit this strategy of normalizing egregious behavior and focusing the public on one level higher of corruption every time is a pretty good one. The quid pro quo is not necessary here. The wrongdoing occurred even without it. But the Trump admin knows all they need to do is focus public opinion on something worse and it will give his senate lapdogs enough to deflect to in order to avoid voting for impeachment. If the quid pro quo came out they would simply redirect to something one step worse and pretend the quid pro quo was normal and a part of his duty in defending the country or some nonsense, and you would eat it up.

    HERE IS WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN Every high ranking GOP from McConnell to McCarthy to Nunes to Jordan... Needs to tell Trump “It’s over. Time is up. We can’t back you any more. Dozens, maybe hundreds, of GOP careers are at stake. Resign now. Feel free to rant and rail once it is done. Tweet, go on TV, stand in the street and shake your fist. Hell, we’ll jump in with praise and thanks and ‘he was railroaded!’. But you are done when it comes to public office. Done. And if you keep your mouth shut when it comes to illicit stuff, you and your stupid kids will be protected. If you try and drag anyone else down...it will not work out for you and yours. We are at the point where we will throw any of your toadies under a big freaking bus. Comprende? Now let us go on and try to un#### this party.”

    So Trumps no quid pro quo defense goes up in smoke, so we’re left with it’s OK to seek foreign assistance. Just sickening. All Republicans should be ashamed of themselves, but I’m sure they’re not.

    I never really believed that Trump himself actively colluded with Russia in all their election interference in 2016; he was just a useful idiot. I have changed my mind.

    GOP needed Russian disinformation apparatus in 2016. No longer. It’s now baked into the mainstream media strategy to brazenly lie without consequence or rejection. It’s amazing how far we fell, and how fast. We now have the equivalent of the FSB operating out of the Admin, with President, Sec State and AG as patrons. We are lost.

    Not impeachable in itself (I don’t think) but we shouldn’t pass over the news that Trump told Xi the United States wouldn’t comment on the Hong Kong protests so long as trade talks continued. Its completely disgraceful and outrageous.

    I think one of my main takeaways between the Russia investigation and this current one is: encryption really does work. The only reason we have the messages that were released last night is because they were provided by some of the participants, as they were done over an encrypted messaging service. In the Russia investigation nearly all of the parties involved used encrypted messaging apps and had zero interest in providing any copies of their communications via such services. The most damaging information that came out was stuff done the "old fashioned" way via email or phone texts.

    I really have to know who came up with the brilliant strategy of challenging the whistleblower complaint as hearsay when you know there's a metric #### ton of corroborating evidence days from being disclosed.

    Only response now is just to point and laugh. As if any Republican wouldn't vote to impeach a Democratic President for this ####.

    I think the reason Trump is publicly asking China to investigate the Bidens because he already has behind closed doors and he knows it's going to come out. So now when the news breaks, it won't actually be news because he already said it out loud.

    Those texts are more direct evidence than I ever thought that they would have. They are more direct evidence than the Watergate tapes. Its up to the Republicans now.

    Great to see him making the big play but he seems to be losing snaps to Brown and Moore. Dissly has also been stealing targets. In a bind he is a “what the heck” flex due to a big play possibility but doesn’t appear to be consistent enough to count on a weekly basis. Hopefully he can continue to develop his route running for dynasty owners and become a staple in an offense that is lead by one of the leagues best quarterbacks.

    Or people that were in the left turn lane but realize they want to go straight so they put right blinker on, but of course they can't move. Left turn signal comes and then nobody behind them can move either. Thanks for making me miss the light because you are dumb.

    If...by bad at this...you mean crazy enough to keep falling for your blatant trolling...then yeah, Im bad. But Im damn good at linking facts showing my point to be correct...and you to be completely wrong. 2.88 > 2.80 (2014 vs 2017) 2.03 > 1.9 (2016 vs 2015) So stop with the attempted insults...and either refute the facts I pointed out...admit you are wrong...or just walk away knowing what everyone who has read this back and forth has seen. I proved my point...backed it up with links and numbers...and you have brought absolutely nothing to the table other than your opinions which have been disproven.

    Redraft, only have to start 2, so I have been getting by while waiting on AJ. Starting to wonder how healthy he actually is at the moment. Is he semi-holding out right now, and we just don't know it?

    I am thinking he could take it up, and then immediately table it for a future date - or adjourn the senate until a Supreme Court position opened up.
