    Democratic Party Presidential Candidates for 2020

    Did she say she wanting to fight in Iraq or that she wanted to serve in the military? No idea here, but wanting to serve your country says nothing about your beliefs about a given war.

    Watch out, here come the calls for a "Unity Ticket"

    The donnie parter has run off anyone that could form a unity ticket anyway. With an R statesman maybe .... but they are few and far between now. Have been for a few decades.

    Government shutdowns

    Talk about petty! If it was previously undisclosed there may have been a reason to not tell people. But donnie needed it to yell about, right?

    Government shutdowns

    Exactly. Even the president does not have the ability to invite themself to give the SOTU, they need to be invited. She is simply saying she can not invite him unless the government opens this week. He is more than free to give it from the oval office (or another location), send congress a...

    Government shutdowns

    A local news station had a poll on that this morning. Support for not having a SOU address was 87%.

    Brexit.

    To be fair politicians are like that all over. The only way to get them to decide anything most of the time is to do what A50 does: state what the default is as of what date if they do nothing.

    Government shutdowns

    Looks like Pelosi is not inviting donnie to give the state of the union either. :)

    #JAILTOTHECHIEF- Shit Just Got Real

    Exactly, I have seen restaurants close because they were on tight margins and simply could not afford to have a chunk of their regulars (government employees) not being at work for a week or so. It seems donnie refuses to say yes. Against what people were urging them to do the Ds gave them...

    Brexit.

    From the fact that some people are saying it will happen and others not? I just put 50/50 as a shorthand for 'maybe yes/maybe no' but was more making the second half of the point: that a second extension is unlikely but good luck convincing a politician of that.

    Trump's border wall looks more like a fence

    The amusing thing is NH (and maybe others?) has the right to revolution in their state bill of rights. It is generally understood to be a nonviolent overthrow but I wonder if that has ever been tested.

    Brexit.

    Yes, I give the odds about 50/50 on getting an extension of March 29. The odds of a second extension are pretty close to zero though. The annoying thing is politicians will 'work' under the assumption that they will get that second extension right up until they do not though.

    Disgusting. Especially since the primary mission of coasties is to save lives.

    Government shutdowns

    The ripples are more than direct contractors too. All sorts of businesses rely on the money that is now not going into the economy. The annoying thing is this is basically a self-inflicted wound, the government will still owe all that $$ afterwards but will not have gotten as much for it.

    Now this farce of some people thinking it will pass is over with and they can move things forward at least.

    #JAILTOTHECHIEF- Shit Just Got Real

    It sounds like he is taking a different tack than with covfefe. With covfefe the WH insisted it was a real word and they knew what it was. This time they are just playing 'nothing to see here' with the typo.
