    There's a lot of things I really dislike about Trump. But the utter meltdown his winning again would cause among the Hollywood arrogantista might be worth it.

    Plus, the embalming challenge of trying to make Ruth Bader Ginsberg appear alive until 2024 would be fascinating

    very impressive prison reform meeting w various governors
    not just a photo op but some genuine work being done and a great meeting conducted by DT
    anyone who's ever sat through a meeting knows theres an absolute art to doing it well
    of course i changed the channels around to see if anyone other than fox tuned in...not a chance in hell its wall to wall russia/meuller/manafort
    as soon as the meeting was over the journalists start screaming questions about mueller etc. its a fucking joke
    why is there is no impartiality whatsoever for the man no matter what he does?
    its so bizarre its comical
    this was a really productive set of programs doing something to get men and women out of the cycle of crime and get them employed
    if people can't stop the partisan witch hunt for 10 minutes and make this a story thats pretty sad

    Kim Kardashian brought this to his attention and she's a reality star which says all you can say to me. Yes indeed the left media is a little too obsessed with the Mueller thing I agree. Fox is obsessed with making Trump look good so that is where we are at in politics which is DISGUSTING. Waiting eating popcorn for the Rube perspective I learn so much.:D

    All is as it should be.
    If the left and the right agree then we are fucked.
    The best thing that could happen is for the left and the right to never work together.

    Great point. Was hoping for some reasons for prison reform other than ganja being a type 1 drug because I really do learn something.

    in fairness they were and are the only ones talking about it
    and its different than the KK thing cause that was about one person and this is policy in place for over a year
    and it was one of those open meetings they were just basically covering
    but i agree Fox apologizes quite a bit for him
    i just think Trump is doing a great job of making himself look good if accurately reported
    if you remove his personality and look at job performance its effective and some really good stuff is happening
    this one on prison reform and jobs is truly heartening to me because where do people who make mistakes go?
    prison makes most of them worse and its a crazy dangerous place due to how prisons are run
    this policy wasn't something i had ever heard of because it doesn't get reported along w a lot of other things
    maybe fox washes his balls but no other news broadcast even gives you close to a factual representation of whats actually going on
    russia russia russia...the longer this goes on the more certain you will have another 4 years

    yeah i disagree w that
    if its the right thing to do, such as prison reform, then do it
    otherwise you are just disagreeing to prevent a victory for the otherside
    this is supposed to be a government by the people for the people right?
    what about whats best for everyone?

    We have a whole shit-ton of non-violent drug offenders incarcerated. It goes way beyond weed. That could be looked at.

    Manditory sentencing rules and 3-strikes laws lead to huge populations, many of whom are in for long sentences for a series of petty crimes.

    There's the whole parole system and the crazy rules it puts on people. I doubt any of us on this website could stay out of prison if subjected to the wacky parole requirements.

    Just looking at that stuff could probably cut the prison population by a significant amount.

    Therein this quote lies the heart of all that is wrong about DC.

    Preventing one party from nominating a SCOTUS judge at all was as obstructionist as it gets. No greater proof of the GOP aim against US Citizens in favor or corporate $$$. Of course voting not to change anything for 2018 makes a close 2nd.

    I too, while thankfully still finding myself having a heart, lean more progressively on most things, but still admit that 'some' of what tRump has done is good, I'd also like to see more balance in news reporting.

    OTOH when tRump calls ALL media except Faux News as fake well then those masses of reporters are not going to treat you as favorably or neutral as desired. Surprised? Quit claiming anyone not licking your cajones as Fake News.

    tRump makes his own job harder with daily mean moronic tweets. How very presidential to tweet some shit from his morning dump.

    I too would prefer to see reporting more balanced but tRump brought this one on himself. And continues to make it worse every day.

    My point is not that.
    It is that if the Demons who fell from heaven and the Reptiles that climbed out of the swamp met and had sex the fruits of their labor would be worse than either of them put together.
    Democrats think they are god and why they have kratos in their title. They want power but pretend its for the people.
    Republicans are tax collectors who get screwed out of their graft when things get soo corrupt that they cant properly forecast how much they will be able to graft without it causing an issue with the economy. They are after all conservative cold blooded reptiles who only feed themselves a little at a time so they can suck at that teat until they are ready to be put into the ground. Like all good tax farmers the publicans want security both physically and financially so they let the money grow at a nice steady pace.
    Democrats are like fuck that creeping around the ground just because we are snakes, we once had wings and could fly so fuck it we will be dragons and fly high and drain shock and awe from unmanned drones killing women and children on their way to their big score that they can take back to their giant McDragon dens.
    Any children of theirs, any fruits that come out of any union between them will be horrific terrorizing monstrosities like fire breathing Godzilla, one eyed giant Cyclopean giants, a new Predator movie, or the dirty ginger Irish.

    It is fake news.
    You don't have to agree with trump but he is giving you a lot of truth.
    For a long time the news media stopped hiring reporters. You have fallen for this when trying to tell me something you saw in the news.
    I told you that the media entity 'reporting' it did not actually do the legwork but just grabbed the AP News feed.
    Without legwork there is no reporting.
    Most media companies have fired virtually all of their reporters but a few select stars and some interns.
    Even ESPN hardly has any reporters that is why when the recent college football fiasco happened they had nobody to report on it because their few reporters were on vacation.
    I remember when I was a kid older hispanic people talking about the great brave reporters who worked hard to bring them the truth on TV.
    They were as naive then as we are now.
    I felt compelled to explain to them that they were not reporting anything. That these men and women are not reporters but TV Presenters no better than the chick with the big tits that is a cohost on every sports show.
    Or a few years later when the science of meteorology had a Double D prerequisite.
    These are not reporters, this is not news, these are actors working as presenters of conditioning programming.
    And each of us is conditioned because we all have a condition.

    I did everything I was told to do, went to every meeting and did community service creating firebreaks in the forest as if I was being paid. Shit, I felt proud even, like an auxiliary firefighter so I worked it like a job and treated the forest as a college campus spreading around my particular kind of good cheer and positive attitude. I had 360 days of forest service and 3 years probation but it was all cut to about half mostly because of attitude I believe. I was never there as a criminal, at least not in my mind. In my mind I was a fucking fireman and a mountain man.
    I fell in love with working in the forest and a few months later found the old abandoned cabin at the foot of the forest that is now my backyard.

    When I was called into the sherrifs office and told that I didn't need to come back the guy said it was because of how I was always helping the women learn how to use the equipment or walking them to the port o potty which we called the port o party. The girls were usually drug addicts or prostitutes and also usually pretty nice to talk to. The cops thought I was doing it out of the kindness of my heart but those chicks were smoking hot to a guy recently out of jail spending all his time with dudes and trees. Especially the white girls who would make themselves up like little cholas. My day went by fast and fun working on the fireline. I got cut loose after 200 days which was just a bit over half of my sentence. It was actually bittersweet because I was not warned but just called in one day and told that I was done, that my time was served. I even went back up to the sherrif and asked him to verify it for me because I was afraid of not coming into 'work' and getting sent back to jail for not showing up to the service.

    I did hate going to the probation office all the fucking time though.
    But I did it and did not fuck around with it.
    The motivation is strong not to fuck it up. It really is not that hard when you take the states into consideration.
    Unless you really don't mind jail.... but fuck that.
    I was not the most organized or responsible guy and that was part of what landed me in jail. I never had my papers in order because I didn't think this was nazi germany until I realized that every country is a nazi germany in progress. I never went to court because I was a minor and didnt worry about being treated as an adult. But I looked and acted like one and as soon as I turned 18 everything was suddenly on the books.

    Shit the reason why I got out of jail after only a few months and received those 360 days of community service and 3 years probation was because I finally had the ability to hire a lawyer to get half of the shit from when I was a minor thrown out. I had a bunch of tickets for driving without a license or insurance as a kid. Shit I would drive without tags or borrow the tags from a family members non working car.
    None of these things seemed like a crime to me in my youth.
    I figured that if I had a good reason it was not a crime.
    I was closing a supermarket at 14 alongside a manager who probably wanted to fuck me now that I think about it.
    I figured driving to work could not be considered a crime or 'bad' and that any judge or cop would be cool about it.
    I was a very very very naive kid.
    And im not sure the 'was' part is 100% accurate.
