    Can you believe Ben Carson said the same thing Obama himself said regarding slaves/immigrants? Yet only one side revealed nasty vitrol.

    Where do I start on the Women's March? What a sham of a movement. I wonder how these women brand themselves as "brave" for marching in favor of taxpayer funded birth control, yet completely ignore the complete subjugation of women at the hands of Muslim dominated countries. So brave. The women's march put their feelings above the education of American children as numerous school districts closed because their teachers and admin decided to march wearing hats that symbolize genitalia. So let me get this right....you don't show up for work, to make a point that you're, "not paid fairly for equal work" and then put the education of girls on the backburner to your political views. Well okay then.

    But then isn't gender just a social construct?

    The mental gymnastics required to understand this is beyond ridiculous.

    Kory, don't get me started on liberal women. The whole genitalia hat wearing club does not speak for me. I can't even take them seriously with that...that...thing on their head. Just...no. They want attention. Not respect. I want respect. Not attention. We could not be more different.

    Oh I know it doesn't represent all of the female population. It's just a vocal minority. Much like the millenials are not represented by that vocal minority.

    Vast majority of women were out working and/or contributing to society the day of the Women's March. It was just a few derelicts of society who weren't.....

    Quite robust job/wage growth in February...beating projections by a large margin. Most notable was the growth in construction.

    Good, this job growth is in line with the past two febuaries. 237,000 in 2016 and 238,000 in 2015.

    It's quite comedical to see Trump claim credit, especially last year when he slammed Obama and the government for their 4.7% unemployment rating .. suggesting they were "cooking the books" ; now that it's 4.7% under Trump it's "GREAT AGAIN"!
    "It's a good jobs report, but he hasn't done anything yet," says economist Doug Holtz-Eakin of the right-leaning American Action Forum.

    Rather troubling comments regarding the greenhouse effect by Scott Pruitt, new director of the EPA. Aside from some qualms I have with the EPA, the greenhouse effect is a well established theory within science. CO2 is a very efficient trapper of longwave radiation (that is radiation between between 4 and 30 micrometers). That is well established in science....

    This is what happens when someone with no science background leads a scientific agency. What we don't have a good handle on is the climatic feedbacks (which there are numerous ones such as ocean carbon uptake and storage in deep ocean sediments). But hey, let's not focus on areas of science that we're shaky on....

    What's it gonna be next? Does lead above MCLGs not have a detrimental affect on humans?

    Except these are full time, high paying jobs. Not the part time service industry jobs created during barry's two terms.

    Unbelievable...


    "Unsubstantiated claims by US President Donald Trump that he was wiretapped by Barack Obama were not meant literally, the White House press secretary says.

    Sean Spicer said Mr Trump had broadly meant "surveillance and other activities" when he made the allegation in a tweet earlier this month.

    He also suggested the president was not accusing his predecessor specifically."


    What Trump said couldn't have been more accusatory and specific.


    "The president used the word wiretap in quotes to mean broadly surveillance and other activities," Mr Spicer told reporters.

    "There's a whole host of tactics that can be used to monitor somebody either through wiretap or other ways," he added, without giving details.

    [​IMG]

    What a pathetic move by Spicer. And does he offer any evidence for this supposed alternative surveillance? Of course not. He's trying to change the context over a week later because he knows they've dug themselves in a hole they can't get out of.

    What does Trumps words mean if they don't mean what they say?

    LOL @ Rachel Maddox's epic buildup to the release of two pages of Trump's 2005 tax return on her show last night, only to have it reveal that he paid a 25% tax rate paying $38 million in taxes. It proved that he pays a higher tax rate than Obamacare (19%) and Bernie Sanders (13.5%).

    If I were to channel the collective IQ of MSNBC workers into electricity, I might be able to mildly toast a piece of bread.

    That display last night was literally the definition of fake news.

    Finally. Tillerson is threatening to withdraw from the UNCHR if they do not reform. Trump has proposed reducing payments to the U.N 50 %. About damn time!

    Terrorist attack in London today. Very little is known about the suspects but they used a vehicle to mow over people. That fits ISIS's modus operandi....
