  1. If people's actual goal is to save the PSF, then perhaps the discussion should pivot to discussing concrete steps for saving it. I would recommend establishing some very simple ground rules for discussion (MT's list is a great place to start), and then sticky them to the top of this forum. If we need more, we'll add more - like amending the constitution.
  2. I don't post frequently, but I lurk here daily. I think it would be a shame to lose this forum - but it's also a shame that some folks aren't able to discuss topics without targeting others. And frankly, that is a reflection of where we are as a society. We need to be better, and has been called out already - debate the issue, not the person. It's Joe's website - he can do whatever he wants with it. I just think it is sad that there are so few places on this vast internet that allow for a discussion across political spectrums. If we want echo chambers, then we would go to the Democratic Underground or Free Republics of the internet. I think that even with media frequently choosing one side or another (FOX vs. MSNBC), the benefits of having a forum that is open to everyone's ideas and opinions - and even spirited debate - is exactly what our country needs right now. Do I expect Joe and his football website to be the protectors of our democracy? Of course not. But we need all the small wins we can get.
  3. If I’m a Minneapolis baker, I’m retiring on the sales of Impeach pie.
  4. Looks like Rudy thinks the State Department asked him to step in, but they seem to have claimed otherwise. Rudy Giuliani told Sean Hannity on Fox News Monday night that his recent dealings with Ukraine were initiated by the State Department. "The State Department called me and said would I take a call from Mr. [Andriy] Yermak, who's No. 2 or three to the president-elect who is now the president," said Giuliani, one of President Trump's personal attorneys. Giuliani said he then spoke with Yermak and that he then passed along the "enormously important facts" to the State Department. When reached for comment, a State Department spokesperson said, "Mr. Giuliani is a private citizen and acts in a personal capacity as a lawyer for President Trump. He does not speak on behalf of the U.S. Government." https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/462761-giuliani-says-state-department-asked-him-to-take-call-from-ukrainian-official
  5. I’m curious why Trump asked Ukraine to meet with his personal attorney (Rudy) rather than the state department. That seems a little odd. Why is his personal attorney getting involved in international affairs?
  6. Pelosi has always been very measured on impeachment looking at the larger picture, so for her to move forward is a big step. I hope you are right.
  7. I despise Trump with every fiber of my being, but with no transcripts and not having seen the complaint, unless the dems have more evidence, this seems pre-mature. If I’m a TV District Attorney, I’d be like “This isn’t good enough - we need more”. I actually thought they had a better case with obstruction on the Russia investigation. Mueller set it up for them on a tee, and the dems kept swinging and missing.
  8. I love that she changed her Twitter bio - ""A very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future." Trolling the troll...
  9. ""I am from Sweden, a small country. And there, it is the same argument. 'Why should we do anything, just look at the U.S.,' they say. So, just so you know, that is being used against you as well." - Greta Thunberg
  10. For those of you that don't believe in climate change, I'm curious what part of the argument you dispute? Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere creates a Greenhouse effect, impacting the temperature of the planet Some Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere is good for humans, as it actually keeps the planet comfortably habitable Too much Carbon Dioxide is bad for humans, as it heats up the planet Scientists are able to determine historical Carbon Dioxide levels by probing ice cores For the last 800,000 years, Carbon Dioxide levels were below 300 parts per million Since 1880 (the start of the industrial revolution), we have seen an increase in Carbon Dioxide levels Since 1950 (the last 70 years), Carbon Dioxide levels have increased by over 30% - to over 400ppm The levels of Carbon Dioxide are expected to increase in the coming decades Automobiles, airplanes and factories, which weren't around just 100 years ago, emit Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere
  11. Maybe if we surround the White House with homeless, the current tenant will want to leave too. Dear DNC, I have an idea.....
  12. I can’t even... I mean...I don’t understand how... Nevermind. {sigh}
