If that's a window into his internal dialogue, he's losing it by the minute. At our expense.

His speech patterns and logic are no better than an eight year old - he just doesn't talk like an adult. "almost more importantly" WTF does that mean? It is or isn't. And his constant choice of absolutist language: "I guarantee you", "better than anybody", "There’s not (a) security guard", "better than him", “Because they know", "they’re going to know", "bullets are going to be", etc., etc. A person could ask him how, when, why or where to anything he says and he could not give an answer supported by facts. Because he just. doesn't. know. Or care.

The other day somebody used the word "ninny" to describe him. It made me laugh because I haven't heard that in a while. Damn, we're in some serious shit

Aaaaauuuugggghhhh! I can't stand it anymore.

waaaah, boo hoo

"with some claiming that real people (as opposed to bots) were locked out of their accounts." yeah, maybe. twitter ain't voting.

And it's crickets from those same folks, when REAL PEOPLE are prevented from having their voice counted at election time.

This is Idaho;

November 2018 probably won't make much difference. The wackery only seems to get worse the further north you go, but really the kooks are all over the place. The plus side is he represents Moscow, Idaho (University of Idaho). You'd expect that would be a tempering influence, maybe enough to cause some problems next fall. But once again, This is Idaho.

"The amendment's purpose is to arm militias"

That always has been my view as well.

When I find myself arguing the 2nd's intent or Scalia's constitutionalist interpretation with a nutter, I'll just ask why wasn't the 2nd written as only: "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed"? It would've been simpler, cleaner, less ambiguous, etc., etc. Why did the framers think it was necessary to insert the "a well-regulated militia" qualifier? After some hemming and hawing, kicking the ground and muttering, it usually shuts them up.

Yes, the 2nd could've been written more clearly but its what it is. Scalia and the 2007 Heller majority fucked up. For whatever reason.

Good words bf, and thank you for this sobering reminder

Most days, I'm battling the mad gravity that sucks me in to the latest news cycle of the day. It is capital I don't have and that energy can be better spent doing as you suggest: "Fight. Resist. Win. It's all that matters".

I'm thinking we got at least A chicken in the WH.

It's constantly squawking with its wing/arm things flapping about, feathers always ruffled up while preening and it's kind of orangey, like the one in the clip. Oh, and spurs. It's got your spurs too. Yes mam, a chicken.

I saw that clip last night before I went to bed.

I had nightmares, I'm telling you, nightmares. All night long. They weren't the ones you easily handle as an adult either. I was a kid, helpless, frightened and unable to avert my gaze. At least the beast was heading away and did not cast his grim visage my way. I remain marked however, suffering, perhaps forever. Really

I'm agreeing too.

A couple of people with plenty of time, a camera and an inkling to what a "first amendment audit" might be is like giving a newly licensed driver the keys to a Porsche and unsupervised use: "Lets take her out and see what she kin do! yeehaaww"

It may be legal but perhaps not wise, and depending on the situation, could lead to an unintended result. Instead, how about "follow me out to the track". Once there, "put on your Nomex and helmet" give him/her a couple of hot laps and only then, "here's the keys, good luck and have fun". Still might total the Porsche, but much safer.

Kudos to the cop. He seemed to be a good sort.

thanks lunatica, and yes!

Gotta love some Pierce in the morning.

And the highlighted SOTU "fourth and final pillar" part: straight out of the gaping hole called Stephen Millers mouth. It has his bite pattern all over it, IMO.

I really want to see him behind bars for a spell. A long spell,

before his diet has its way. In a perfect world, we'd get to see him in the laundry beating farts out of shirt tails, or hammering out license plates in the shop, all while constantly glancing over his shoulder. In a perfect world.
