It’s Valentines Day, the perfect day for my fellow conservatives to celebrate the fact that we are hotter—and have better sex!

    When Finding Nemo came out in 2003 children were flushing their fish down the toilet to set them “free.” I think the real problem about the scene in Peter Rabbit is that it could make children think it is funny to prank a person who has food allergies, and they might try it out for themselves. At this point it is a parent’s responsibility to explain the scene if they are concerned. The film makers should have stuck to the original source material, and skipped the homicidal bunnies.

    Dude. No.

    Things were going so well. The Monday shows are a really good idea.

    Remember how I keep saying that the Traditional-Republicans and the MAGA-GOP are like a couple who need marriage counseling to learn how to talk to each other and get along better?

    Out in the real world with facts, logic, and reason you look like a buffoon… I want to help you to stop doing this.

    That’s not how you talk to each other. That is how a passive aggressive partner starts a fight.

    It’s called an “intervention.” Is your pal your pal if he lets you walk out the door with your fly down? Hit on a “chick” at a bar who has an Adam’s apple? You gotta get your friends’ back–or you’re not a real friend.

    Bless you for trying Michael, but sadly I don’t see it working. Some people are too emotionally invested. If you criticize Trump you criticize them. Others see it as Trump or a parade of Jeb! style republicans losing to democrats forever. Both will defend Trump no matter what.

    Unattractive people, male and female, are more likely to be dissatisfied with a status quo that doesn’t give them the recognition they think they deserve. They start out disapproving of society’s aesthetic judgments, and eventually extend that disapproval to other aspects of society.

    I have assumed that Omarosa was brought into the White House to mollify the race and sex bean counters. It’s much in the same spirit as when universities bring in insufficiently prepared minority students to temporarily inflate their affirmative action stats before most of them flunk out.

    @0:30 Peter Rabbit is a stupid book about a stupid rabbit who steals vegetables from other people’s gardens.
    @1:45 The other people’s name was MacGregor.

    Some of us just want to know the names of these people who need intervention, and what is it they said that (a) makes them spokesmen for everyone who supports any of Trump’s policies and (2) reflect Trump policies. Today Michael Graham finally mentioned Sean Hannity. But who takes Sean Hannity seriously? Michael Graham doesn’t, I don’t, I’ll bet a steak dinner that JuliaBlaschke doesn’t. Michael Graham was correct over ten (10) years ago when he criticized Sean Hannity for being too reflexively “if GWBush did it, then it’s right.” Michael Graham on the other hand properly criticized George W. Bush for expanding Medicare, for signing Ted Kennedy’s disastrous DoEducation-expanding No Child Left Behind Act, and for signing the constitutionally repugnant McCain-Feingold restrictions on free speech, among others. Michael also prematurely declared the Iraq War lost, then GWBush gave General Petraeus free hand to win it.

    So Michael, get Sean Hannity on the podcast, and ask him how he became spokesman for all of us who support Trump policies on energy, taxes, government regulation, the Middle East, North Korea, …

    No you are wrong. I think many people do take Hannity seriously. Fox News takes him very seriously as they do Lou Dobbs, Laura Ingraham and even Judge Jenene (or whatever her name is). All of these people were tolerable (barely) before Fox started their Trumpalooza (in the Primaries, for crying out loud!) but are now simply ridiculous. And if Trump supporters don’t want to be put in a basket with them they need to stop defending the President’s every stupid utterance. Fine to support “Trump” policies but also fine to see the obvious truth that Trump himself is a problem.

    I specifically identified me, Michael Graham and JuliaBlaschke as not taking Sean Hannity seriously, and I put a steak dinner where my mouth is. Why are you not willing to speak for yourself? Name TWO of those “many people” who take Hannity seriously. Hint: Fox News isn’t a people. Use examples and show your work.

    I don’t take Sean Hannity seriously Julia. Do you? There’s a steak dinner in it for you.
