    Teachable lesson here is that Lochte should have kept his mouth shut, as once he admitted he lied in the beginning, everything he says after that is suspect. And who exactly does he think he is bashing the Brazilian authorities after being caught intoxicated and no doubt driving around with his buddies looking for no good. As he clearly stated he has embarrassed himself, his teammates, his coaches and his country.

    “The policy is anyone who’s here illegally is here illegally, does not have the right to be here,” she said. “We’ll decide whether it’s in our interest to let them stay or not. Perhaps it is in our interest to let some of them stay.” Translation…. Trump and Coulter have been contacted by wealthy small and middle size business owners who will have to pay more for legitimate workers and then might actually have to treat them as real employees. This has nothing to do with ideology or whether Cruz was right or not. This is all about $$…. As there aren’t enough illegal immigrant owned businesses to hire all these illegal workers… so who exactly are they working for? Go ask the company who is cleaning the office buildings, go ask the company who is mowing lawns in your community. Go ask the nurseries? Etc. This is as much a problem of businesses breaking the law as it is about illegal immigration.

    Actually the only real libertarians were the Bernie Sanders supporters because they recognize the unholy alliance of the government and large corporations / wealth. An alliance which is akin to the alliance between governments and the Catholic and Church of England during the Inquisition. So spare me the analogy between a symbolic and convenient joining of libertarians and conservatives because there is none. Libertarians believe government should be tethered to the constitution which means a military for national defense only and government should get out of individual citizens business and make sure large corporations and the wealthy have no influence beyond the common citizen. It is we the people, not we the capitalists and not we the wealthy.

    “Amen! the so called conservatives that are in the never Trump movement are mindless and more like democrats than they realize.” Actually you are the problem in this country. A broad brush statement regarding people you tag with some convenient label such as liberal, progressive, democrat, etc. is childish at best. Warren Buffet is a progressive, democrat and you couldn’t carry his cup of coffee relative to brains, accomplishments, integrity, ethics and thus character. Please tell us you are a 5th. grader so we can at least write it off as childhood ignorance.

    Ok koz, spare us the “democraps typically do” as no one does this more than alt-right sites like Brietbart and misinformation gurus like rush…. Having said that this isn’t news because Bannon is not running for office and is not the candidate. tre’ how’s about considering some posts regarding real issues facing this country and doing some research on the actual policy positions of the candidates….. this kind of stuff is crap and exactly why this country is going to hell in a handbasket.

    Consentual sex between two college student where the coed decides to claim she was “drunk” and didn’t know she said yes is not rape, unless the coed can prove it was the guy who poured drinks down her throat. And it is time for the media to stop referencing global statistics on everything that is labeled “sexual assault” and then reference the rape word, like all sexual assaults are rape. And no a guy bumping into a girl at a frat party is not sexual assault. Nor is telling a girl at a party that she has a nice body. Coeds that drink too much and act out during parties need to first and foremost take responsibility for their own actions. And a good start would be to recognize they have had too much to drink and not start hitting on guys and engaging in levels of sexual activity. And for the record a guy who refuses to pay an escort because the sex was terrible, did not rape her.

    “We have one rape of a woman by the name of Juanita Broadwick (sp?) by a man named William Clinton. Apparently that rape wasn’t so bad. The guy never served jail time, was promoted and praised by many, and people have even said he could be a great feminist.” Ok well in this country you have to be CHARGED and then processed by the judicial system in some manner before anyone can claim you raped someone. Go visit a prison and interview some convicted rapists and come back and tell us how many were liberals. Its a crime of violence no sex, but again that is something they hide in books.

    Ah yes let’s post about the VA as it will no doubt generate a bunch of bait clicks. kate, have you ever even considered posting a balanced story. For example, how many students committed suicide on college campuses last year? Did you research that? Or even better how many enlisted military personnel committed suicide last year? Di you research that? Really no need to answer.

    “There’s no safe places in Hell” Guess you would know as someone who believes they can stand in judgement of large groups of people no doubt has ended up there after multiple previous lives. An indication from the Hindu philosophy that you have progressed little during those lifetimes. But alas I state the obvious.

    U of C is one of the truly great universities in the US. Milton Friedman’s Free to Choose book was fairly good although like most pro free market types he discounts the concept of utility, particularly social utility. Clean air and water are fundamentally priceless so any business analysis should always find in favor of clean air and clean water. What we are doing to the oceans and lakes in terms of chemical pollution and noise pollution is a disgrace.

    ok kate saying the she was “grilled” is almost as funny as saying you actually research any of your posts. How about a post on how fake this woman’s smile and answers are.

  • [3] August 24, 2016 at 11:31am

    Yep classy move, perhaps someone should have added this one also….”meleniaescortagency” My point being that in days gone by the media made a point of pushing candidates for recognition and answers regarding their policies on the real issues facing the country….not on promoting unfounded attacks and misinformation. Particularly the segment of the media who claims they are not the biased “drive bys” no actually they are much much worse in that they will say and repeat whatever their wealthy ad buyers want them to for the $$$.

    Seriously, what does the state of the Catholic church have to do with the issues facing this country or the remote possibility any of the political campaign hacks or their conservative media partners in propaganda would care about them. Certainly a sign that this campaign has not made any attempt to class up its act.

    profanity-laced rant against a Politico Florida reporter Sunday during an interview with TheBlaze TV’s Dana Loesch…. no doubt he was prompted by DL to do exactly what he did and of course there is the need to keep wording of all statements under 5 letters for DL and her audience.

    With all due respect this is nothing more than an opportunist trying to make money off a worthless book simply because Trump is an atypical candidate. Its almost as absurd as someone writing a book regarding a false 2nd. amendment conspiracy or a book about middle america being different than the coasts. The only difference is that ann coulter is educated and can actually articulate something without showing her chronic insecurities byway of yelling or making unfounded inflammatory comments. Right DL?

  • [-8] August 24, 2016 at 11:15am

    Wow great eye contact and stage presence. Guess there was a need to avoid hiring and presenting someone who was actually educated and could put forth a rational position on anything….we wouldn’t want to challenge dana or make her feel as ignorant as she is.

  • [8] August 24, 2016 at 11:11am

    of course they both should, but not surprising this hack post implies that a letter from a specialist is somehow a complete medical record or history. And carson lost a lot of credibility in the segment because he wouldn’t say that the crap that is floating around the internet and being repeated by the lowest of the low (eg. dysphasia) is unfounded and thus BS.

    “We need a new strategy and it starts with holding physicians accountable.” Well said but I would add the need for pricing oversight that prohibits congress from blocking Medicare’s ability to negotiate drug prices and global price stabilization that prohibits companies from selling the same drug in the US, under a different name for 2,3,4,5 or more times what they sell it for in Canada, Europe or other countries. You want to worry about corruption and pay to play in government, start with big pharma and Congress, which of course means most republicans.

    Bingo, exactly. Time to look int he mirror and examine how she raised her daughter and what she did and didn’t do relative to her drug problem. If she was even a minimally involved parent she would have certainly known her daughter had a drug problem.

    “To this day, he still converses with angels and spreads their wisdom to the living.” Ah so we are to believe his after life experience has now become his life and he talks to angels on a routine basis. There are over 5 billion human beings on the planet and you have sites like this and people who forward a handful of “near death” accounts as evidence of their deeply held religious beliefs. Of course you have a factor of 100 times this number of near death experiences of individuals who have traveled to South American and actually experienced DMT induced trances that are equally if not more remarkable. Either do some research regarding DMT and its effects on the sensory realization before you put forth another one of these nonsensical faith based stories.
