    Buchanan's a nut. His politics don't really jive with a lot of your views. But the isolationism stuff does.

    You're wrong. But this is still true.

    I know a lot of them, even Rush Limbaugh came out on oppostion but a lot of them are just silent on it. Sasse is a genuine, pragmatic conservative and he has been very consistent in his oppostion to Trump. People like him, John Kasich, Mitt Romney, John McCain, Susan Collins and Jeff Flake actually care more about their country than they do their party, which is admirable.

    Ted, as a self-appointed evangelist for Libertarianism, how do you feel about Trumpís threats against 1st amendment?

    Nebraskans just get it, amiright?

    Edit: my primary votes in the last three elections were Romney, Romney, Kasich. Those guys and Sasse are my kind of conservatives. I think the country will be fine after Trump but I will never forgive him for dynamiting the true conservative movement and making us all homeless when it comes to a political party.

    Anyone see the General John Kelly press conference. Very impressive. So glad he is chief of staff and not Bannon as gloom and doomed predicted.

    I also really like John Kelly and Tillerson and Mattis. I didn’t like Tillerson at first but he has proven he is responsible and capable. I don’t need his IQ trat d either.

    Just the kind of dismissive response that typically sets you off.

    Totally justified in my response to Old Greg. Only one conversation concerning a financial matter with him and as I thought at the time, he had,his head up his butt.

    That's cool. You don't have to respond to anything if you don't want to. Just thought it was funny that that exchange would be classified as a "debate".

    Also, and I am not happy about this, according to FANews CPA's are the most trusted financial advisors. Investment advisors come in fourth.

    Yikes. Reminds me of when Jon Stewart was ranked the most-trusted news source among millennials.

    By saying that Drumpf's exercise of free speech may come back to bite him in the ass? He can use his 1st amendment rights to say any crap he wants but he may be held accountable. Stuff he says on twitter may be viewed as official statements from the white house.

    So after repeatedly failing to enact any meaningful legislation during his first year, Trump is now going to blow shit up using executive orders? Nice.

    Remember when folks used to complain about Obama abusing his executive order privileges? Good times.

    This is a kind of scary headline from the Washington Times:

    Congress warned North Korean EMP attack would kill '90% of all Americans'

    I have no doubt and EMP would be catastrophic, but 90% mortality seems far fetched. I don't have any meaningful knowledge of how it would work, but if it burned up the computers in farm machinery, we would definitely be hard-pressed to feed everyone. Popular Mechanics published this article in March, so there is some disagreement among experts.

    No, North Korea Can't Kill 90 Percent of Americans
    Pyongyang isn't going to knock out the electrical grid and cause riots at the supermarket.
