If you're not trying to pull off a full end-run around the law - as you have been trying against the POTUS for years now - then what is your goal?

What the balls are you even talking about, dude?

Read your own words. You keep saying that you believe you can't get what you want by using the legal system - both with the POTUS as well as with Hillary - so you have nothing left but to advocate for more extralegal action. You have advocated openly for the extralegal removal of the POTUS; now you are rallying the troops against Hillary with what action as a goal?

then accuse the straight folk of "trying to pull off a full end-run around the law"

The "straight folk"? Really, what on earth is that supposed to mean? You very plainly have been calling for discarding the legal system when it doesn't suit your aims.

The best growth - in terms of people and income - of the middle class that our country ever saw was when the taxes were progressive. There is simply no way around those simple facts.

I'm ready to scuttle the Lovecraftian monstrosity that is the tax code and go with something simple.

It is notable that what you said did not counter my point in any way, shape, or form. You highlighted it with your new subject line but did not respond to it.

"Simple" tends to disperse power, though.

A simple - if by simple you mean something like a flat tax - would vastly increase the annual tax liability of the wealthy and of industry. They would never stand for that, and they own too much of the government for it to ever gain traction. Some of the guys from your team will try to sell the idea but they know it will never go anywhere. They just give it lip service because it makes for good sound bites.

Weren't you just accusing me of changing topics and moving the goalposts recently? What happened to discussing Scottie's Wall?

An intrastate rail is a long cry from a bankruptcy-inducing, international-relations-destroying, completely-unwarranted project like what the Kevlar Kandidate wants to "discuss".

You keep telling us that the system is incapable of achieving your goals, so then why do you put so much effort into declaring them? After all, if you managed to install the Kevlar Kandidate in the white house, there would be no reason to keep punishing Hillary, would there? You would just be trying to flog a presidential campaign that didn't win.

economically oppressive state that you treasure so much

Well, you've correctly diagnosed the problem, if not the source.

Regressive taxation has never solved the problem at any earlier attempt, and never will in any future attempt either. The best growth - in terms of people and income - of the middle class that our country ever saw was when the taxes were progressive. There is simply no way around those simple facts.

I should think that if it meant a lot of union jobs

First of all, the project is impossible and would nearly bankrupt the country for no benefit - aside from preventing Americans from leaving for an actual democracy with a functioning health care system.

Second, if the Kevlar Kandidate became the Kevlar POTUS () why would anyone expect he would allow unions to continue to exist at all? He has done everything possible to dismantle every union - public or private sector - that he can find any power over. He most certainly wouldn't allow union workers to work on his most cherished and expensive project.

Third, if it meant there would be any chance of more union jobs coming out of it, you know that nobody in the GOP would ever even consider it as a good idea.

Anyone who thinks this administration is going to do anything close to holding Her Majesty accountable

So your faith-based belief in the investigation being farcical is then your rationale for ignoring it completely and calling instead for the extralegal removal and punishment of the person you want to punish. This is not really a surprise, of course.

still likely to take the nomination and the Presidency,.

This seems to be a large part of your standard mantra, now. Is this part of your attempt to plea for "oppressed minority" status or something? It is not clear what you hope to gain through this tactic, other than perhaps using it to justify hero-worship of the next POTUS to come from the GOP. It is strange that you would expect people to notice that to be anything new, considering how the GOP already long ago elevated Saint Ronnie (and others) to God-status.

All on her own?

I'm relatively confident she cast her vote in the Senate by herself

OK, admittedly I could have phrased that better. It was, however, fun to watch you go off the deep end on it.

What I was after with "all on her own" was that she was not the only Senator to vote for it. Ultimately it was such a lopsided vote that no single vote was worth much of anything as your party beat all the sense out of everyone and forced them to vote in support of a war that was sold on a giant stack of lies and bullshit.

We still don't have all the information on the documents. Read the rest of the releases. These documents are now listed "classified" but it is not clear what their status was at the time.

Way too prosaic.

That's right, it's a democrat here, so they are automatically guilty. No need to examine facts, you already know they are guilty. Fuck the investigation, right? Obviously Hillary's email server existed so she could more rapidly catalyze the socialist anarchist atheist Islamist communist illuminati reptoid takeover of the world, right?

Help me, I'm a prisoner in a Fortune cookie file!
