    Looks like they are walking him through how to do basic grocery shopping, like a guy who was just released from a 40-year prison term.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Maybe they told Trump that a person visiting the Bishop's storehouse has to show their order from the bishop to get groceries and he made up the ID part in his own mind... just trying to give him the benefit of the moronic doubt.

    Looking at this picture makes me wonder how fidgety, bored, and utterly disinterested Trump got while these men briefly talked about ways of efficiently providing succor to the poor.

    The comments from Trump supporters arguing that the Nobel prize winning economist who wrote this doesn't know what he's talking about are fun.

    Why are you pretty sure about that? It seems like that achieves their apparent goal of undermining confidence in the system quite nicely.

    Its not just a matter of the orientation of American foreign Policy. It's a matter of sowing dissension within the country to such a degree that the system no longer functions properly. For a foreign power engaged in a non-shooting war, like the US and Russia are now, to some degree, the best thing the foreign power can do is convince the other country's population that it is no threat at all. The second best thing it could do, and the more likely to be achieved, is that it is an all-encompassing existential threat in every aspect of life. Russia is managing to pull both of these off at the same time with large chunks of the population.

    On purely domestic issues maybe you have a point. On other things like trashing current alliances and trade agreements, and pushing for trade wars, Russia would prefer Trump move ahead with that kind of stuff unopposed.

    The Nobel ain't what it used to be. After Obama won it for basically just winning an election, I quit paying attention. While I don't disagree with this guy on the trade war, I think he's out to lunch on our low savings rate being a bad thing. I don't know anything about him, but the nobel thing reminds me of Krugman getting eviscerated by another economist in this video starting at about the 1 minute mark. For Krugman, it was right on the mark.

    If you had the means that Madonna had- why wouldn't you "flee" to Portugal? You think her lifestyle is anything but ridiculous over there?

    The upper tax bracket in Portugal is only 48% so I guess she is saving money in taxes given that she was fleeing from New York (or was it California?). Good move for The Material Girl. Of course she could have done better fleeing to Texas or Wyoming.

    Ha. I wonder when the last time she even touched a tax return or even thought about one was.

    The Kremlin would prefer the Democrats not have full congressional investigatory and subpoena powers at their disposal. Foreign policy-wise, Trump, and the geldings in the GOP are wonderful for Putin.

    So the Republican won in Ohio.

    The headlines are “still too close to call.” Republicans should panic about the house. Great news for Dems.

    Not to go all Trumpian but you can see why people hate the media.

    In context, this would be like a democrat coming close in one of Utah's districts that hasn't had a close race 40 something years. But I agree the average person probably doesn't pay attention to the same things a political nerd would, so it would sound strange to them to call it a good night for the losing candidate's party, and make it easy to bash the media over.

The funny thing is, this seat is up for election again in 3 months.
    Like Jim Matheson close? Or closer than that?

    Maybe I wasn't clear. I meant one of Utah's districts that hasn't been close for a long time. I didn't mean the one that Matheson has held that covers most of Salt Lake. Of course that district has always been not like the others.

    It is like when the Buffalo Bills lost to the NY Giants in Super Bowl XXV by only one point... It was still a great victory for the Bills!

    I didn't know that Utah democrats spent over four times more money as their Utah GOP opponents on ads and still come up losing...

    According to media buyers and party sources, Democratic nominee Danny O’Connor spent $2.4 million on the air, while Republican nominee Troy Balderson spent a bit less than $600,000.

    Put another way, this is BYU connecting on a last second field goal to beat McNeese State. We can all go home thrilled with the exciting outcome and blame the media for being too negative if they question why the game was close to begin with.

    And here's a fun story on state-run media about it. No need to worry if you're a republican.

    Oh yeah... that is a much better way to put it. BYU is the GOP and McNeese State is the Dems. The dems suck.
