The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life. Although it seems to be the prerequisite for advancement in the FBI. We would have just flung poo at him and thrown him out of the troop

FBI supervisor's gun stolen from hotel room after a night of drinking, officials say

Any of you CCLs care to speculate what would happen to you if you get popped for carrying while hammered? And getting robbed by a hooker?

That's one of those gun laws that actually makes a fair amount of sense. But the odds of this pathetic loser losing his right to carry is somewhere between "never" and "oh, fvck no!" And $50 says he is corrupt. A $6,000 Rolex?

From commenter "Sam in VA:"
Just my $0.02, but a republican "tax plan" doesn't even move the needle for me. It's all just tinkering at the margins, and at the end of the day neither party has the balls to do what needs to be done which is - wait for it - start taxing the bottom 3 quintiles of income earners who have basically had a free ride (the bottom 5th actually getting PAID from filing) for two decades. The only tax reform I care about is one that has EVERYBODY paying, and nobody working more than 1 day a week to pay for the federal government EXCEPT the ultra rich who are all social progressives anyway so screw 'em.

What would motivate voters isnt a tax plan, but rather a GOP that lays out a clear set of reforms (as Trump has) and then actually makes a REAL effort to deliver on them, and that means putting the likes of Sue Collins' & Lindsey Graham, and Cornyn and McCain to the absolute screws if necessary. The GOP has serially betrayed its voters for four elections cycles in a row now, and they've only gotten bolder in doing so. The Dems are going to win back - probably - both houses of Congress in 2018, but in doing so they will profoundly misunderstand why.


Good points all, and what resonated with me is the disconnect between the Republican party and its roots. And that's why Trump's populism became so popular so quickly. If the Republican Party withers away, it will be because it lost its focus on its constituents; the people. When the Chamber of Commerce drives policy, it's time for a change.

Ned Ryun: Stronger Evidence Of Russian Collusion Between Fusion GPS, DNC, And Clinton Than Trump
"The reason I think the Intelligence Committee is trying to get ahold of all of their bank records -- I think Fusion GPS was actually paying journalists to promote their manufactured news," he said. "And so you asked if there was anything illegal. We'll have to find that out and that's why I want to see the DOJ to go under the RICO statutes and look what Fusion GPS has done. It's highly unethical."

[Bolding mine...]

Maybe all of this is simply the fourth estate protecting its payoffs. Wouldn't that be just awesome? Jake Tapper's Jaguar paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign via Fusion GPS...Chris Matthews' booze bill...Rachel Madow's strap-ons....

Look, I know that little Georgie-Porgie is a bit of a dim-wit, but he is either overly impressed with his writing ability and simply doesn't know how to signal sarcasm in his writing, or this was tweeted unsarcastically, in which case...wow!
