Journal Journal: ACLU T-Shirts...

The ACLU is selling T-Shirts with their logo that says "Dissent is Patriotic".

That's adorable.

I have an optimus laptop (Dell L502x) and run Ubuntu 14.04 on it. No issues. Installed just fine with the intel driver (Duh!). I do have the proprietary drivers installed now, but it works fine. Switching from Intel to NVidia and inversely does require a login/logout. Not very practical, but good enough if you really really really need that NVidia card for a game.

Yeah, Google sells there phones everywhere. (Hint: they don't. I can't get a Google phone if I wanted). Google may support their phones a longer time, but other manufacturers don't. Even in the premium segment.

Besides, you talk about 2 years for a Pixel... I talk about over 4 years supported. So, liar? More like realistic vision on longevity of devices.

cheaper premium smartphones

It's not a premium smartphone, if you don't get updates... So, let me fix that for you: cheaper smartphones. That's it, explains it all...

Even Google and Samsung suck at keeping updates going for longer than six months, which is why the user who expects longevity and supports shells out for Apple. Sad to say, but I expect my smartphones to last four years. Two, new as my wifes phone on a subsidized contract (with flat everything), and then two more years as a hand-me-down for me with a much cheaper plan.

I'm making fun of you for mischaracterizing Democrat anger. It has nothing to do with with his earlier confirmation.

I have three kids; I understand what it looks like when a toddler throws a temper tantrum.
As a result, I'm well aware of the Democrat anger. It's a temper tantrum worthy of the most bratty toddler or large leftoids....

And it's all very entertaining; I'm enjoying watching the Democrats embarrass themselves.

Are you forgetting or ignoring the fact that Congress has held up a Lame Duck's Supreme Court pick before? It's not like this has never happened before.

Are you forgetting that while George W Bush was President, Chuck Schumer said this when Bush had 19 months to go?

“We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court, except in extraordinary circumstances,” Schumer said in a speech to the liberal American Constitution Society. “They must prove by actions, not words, that they are in the mainstream rather than we have to prove that they are not.”

So. Are you being dishonest or stupid?

Journal Journal: Gorsuch 6

When Gorsuch was confirmed to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, he was done so unanimously.

NOT A SINGLE DEMONRAT SENATOR VOTED AGAINST HIM.

So take the perpetually outraged, professional (ie, paid by Soros) Left's vitriol against him with a grain of salt.

I voted for Ted Cruz in the primary, but if this is how Trump plans to govern I'm really going to start liking the guy.

Directing Executive Agencies to start cutting regulations via Executive Order?

EXCELLENT. This is how executive orders should be used; telling executive branch agencies to get their act together.

Hiring Freeze on Bureaucrats?

EXCELLENT!
