Aren't There Better Things To Argue Over?
[Comments enabled]  

I mean, really?

Like whether a sleeveless dress is "proper attire" for a woman?  (It's not; that's evening wear perhaps, but certainly not business-appropriate.  Coat, long-sleeved shirt and tie for men, incidentally -- and closed-toe shoes.)

Or whether Trump Jr and Kushner met with a Russian lawyer?  If there's any scandal there it's arguably over the subject of the discussion, which incidentally appears to have been related to the ban on Russian children being adopted -- a ban that Putin put in place after one of his detractors died under suspicious circumstances and the US passed a law in response.

Naw, let's not talk about, for example, why a bill to actually address health care price transparency can't find a sponsor in the Senate.  Or, if that doesn't outrage you enough, that bills to force school districts to actually check employees for sexual abuse convictions against minors has similarly disappeared in the Senate.

I mean, it's certainly more important to argue over proper attire for members of the Press while in the halls of Congress than over more than $2 trillion a year being stolen from you by the medical racket, which the Senate refuses to take up and debate or, if you prefer, your kid being raped in a public school.

Yeah.

The link in your article was to the sexual predetion bill. Did you mean the Transparency in All Health Care Pricing Act of 2017?

It's not an issue of "cooperation" vs "go it alone": it's a question of involuntary vs voluntary relationships.

It's justifiably immoral to deal morally with an immoral entity.

I almost axed the TV this morning while Stephanopolous was on Un-ABC, that exact piece Vitchilo inlined .
He kept pushing and pushing until it drove me prompt critical ..

I'm beyond sick of this MSM 'Russian Meddling' crap.
Any fool can see it was the aliens living underneath Antarctica that hacked the election.

Just days before the city fell to the Islamic armies that were surrounding its walls, a rabid debate was splitting the lawmakers and their respective intellectuals.
...
The political establishment of the Byzantines was sharply split over a major question which superseded everything else, including the marching jihad. And that summa matter was: What is the sex of the angels? Are they males or females?

Typical media and congress BS. Why talk about things that matter because then we might have to actually do something about them. Can't take that chance now can we. BTW you don't need intellectuals what you need is people with some common sense.
