  1. I'm reminded of CJ Spiller. The dude was exciting as hell in the open field, but couldn't see the daylight to save his ass. There would be wide open spaces a little to the left or right and he would just run into the back of his blockers. And watching it was just like, WTF Dude?
  2. Thanks Gov. I really doubt anybody could figure it out without your help. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule just to be our hero. What a guy.
  3. And to think I was going to ask if you were 12 years old. This is what I was responding to. YOUR fucking statement responding to my statement. I called it a fake meme and you CLEARLY responded . . . let me read it for you . . . . . Except that's not fake. Maybe you should kill some more brains cells. Try starting over even.
  4. Oh thank you very much. Or maybe I can be more specific in my comments so you don't misunderstand me. Like when I say fake meme, and you say it's not fake, you don't misunderstand that "fake meme" means . . . . FAKE MEME.
  5. I guess I missed the part where you said it might be fake. Let's review- Another poster shared a meme that looks just like a tweet from 2016. I said, "What a beautiful fake tweet meme." And the you said, "Except that's not fake." Now where I went to school we would dissect your sentence, which is a direct response to my sentence, to mean- 1 - Except - Conjunction -used before a statement that forms an exception to one just made. 2 - that - Pronoun - referring to a specific thing (subject) previously mentioned, known, or understood. In this case, seeing as how my sentence was the only thing you quoted, we'll go out on a limb and suggest you were referring to the "fake meme" portion of my sentence. 3 - (i)'s not fake. - this would be referred to as the - predicate (the part of a sentence or clause containing a verb and stating something about the subject). These 3 parts of your sentence mean, in plain English, that you are declaring an exception to my response (that the meme was a fake tweet), by stating that "it" (the meme) is not fake. You followed that statement by saying, "Not exactly" and sharing a link that also clearly says the meme was a fake tweet. I'm still looking for where you said the meme might be fake. Can't find it. Yeah, Trump said the same thing a lot of others did. I think everybody knows that. And I never said he didn't. However, when I see something that is clearly fake, and I call it fake, then you tell me it's not fake, while including a link that also says it is fake, then qualify that response by saying you said it might be fake, even though you didn't, I can't help but feel violated (offended even) by your twisting of my words meaning. If you want to point out what Trump said in the past, have at it. If I see something that's fake, and I call it fake, don't tell me it's not fake and include a link that also says it's fake, then try to backtrack your statement but at the same time strut your stuff like you won some sort of argument. Thank you.
  6. I said the meme you shared was a fake tweet. So does your link. Thank you.
  7. It's a manufactured meme designed to look like a real tweet that never happened. In other words, it's a fake tweet meme.
  8. I'm guessing he'll unretire just around the time all the teams are making their final cuts, making it less likely he'll get picked up when the Pats* cut him. Then he'll sign on the Pats practice squad but with a nice full salary since they're swimming in cap room.
  9. I don't know. There's 660 instances going back to Reagan, and I don't feel like going through them all. I'm doubting it was just this once. But hey, maybe. You never know with dictators.
  10. I'm not missing your point at all. Your hatred of all things Trump has been quite clear around here for some time. So be it. It's you who's missing my point. I never said it was okay for Trump to do it. I asked if doing it made him a dictator, which was your indication in your original post. And guess what, Clinton did it too- http://fairhousing.com/news/clinton-bypasses-congress-appoints-lee Oh, and W too- https://www.advocate.com/news/2004/01/21/bush-circumvents-congress-appoint-antigay-judge-11033 Oh Hell let's just go to the wikipedia and see how many times a president has made a recess appointment- Reagan - 240 HW Bush - 77 Clinton - 139 W Bush - 171 Obama - 32 Trump - 1 Talk about circumventing the rules. Is it right? Nope. Does this action make him a dictator (whether or not his predecessors have done it hundreds of times - and also the only question I asked in response to your initial statement)? My answer is no. But apparently asking the question brands me as a pathetic Trump-loving Obama comparer on the side of his blindly supporting underwear sniffers. Lighten up, Francis.
  11. They voted no? When did that happen? I guess I got confused by reading the article you shared, where it says . . . "on a temporary basis after lawmakers abruptly canceled his confirmation hearing last week" . . . . . and . . . . . "His nomination to be undersecretary of defense for policy, the department's number three official, was upended Thursday when the Senate Armed Services Committee canceled his confirmation hearing minutes before it was scheduled to begin." Maybe they voted by mail? How is it different than this? . . . . said Saturday that he would bypass the Senate and install 15 appointees, including a union lawyer whose nomination to the National Labor Relations Board was blocked last month with the help of two Democrats. . . . . . . “The United States Senate has the responsibility to approve or disprove of my nominees,” Mr. Obama said in a statement. “But if, in the interest of scoring political points, Republicans in the Senate refuse to exercise that responsibility, I must act in the interest of the American people and exercise my authority to fill these positions on an interim basis.”
  12. Wow. How did I know my one simple question would be met with cries of whataboutism? So let's back up. I freely admit President Trump is a bloviating asshole. However, he is the president, and I like to believe whenever he does something I can look at that action and let it stand on it's own merit without letting any feeling for the fact he's a bloviating asshole affect my judgement. So when I read the president installed a man in a position on a temporary basis I said to myself, well, it's been done lots of times before. It's another part of the bullshit games these so called leaders take part in on a daily basis, with the obligatory rubuking statements of the opposition party etc., etc., etc. But I don't think it's a huge deal. Then when I saw your post, your only comment was . . let me quote it so we don't have any misunderstanding . . . "Nah, he's not trying to be like a dictator or anything..." My thought was, holy shit, that seems a little over the top. How does one little action, done numerous times by his predecessors (I know, I know, whataboutism!! AAAHHH) make him a dictator? This was met with a hailstorm of accusations about me (of which you don't know Jack Shit) and "my side." As though asking a simple question, which was aimed directly at your one simple comment, somehow makes me guilty of having defended the president of every last thing he's done, may have done, done that you didn't like, or didn't like it because he's an asshole (he is). You sure seem to know a lot about me. So how about answering the question? Does appointing the man temporarily while congress plays their games make the bloviating asshole a dictator, even though it's something that happens frequently in Washington? Or does it just make him a bloviating asshole who does the same things as those before him only without the style and grace? And does asking that one question condemn me to a lifetime of pigeonholed perception? Do I have to wear a big red "T" on my clothing from here on out so everybody knows asking a simple question places me squarely on one side, guilty of fully supporting and defending the president of everything he's ever said and done? Doesn't take much to pull your trigger does it?
  13. So if a president does something other presidents have done numerous times that makes him a dictator? https://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/28/us/politics/28recess.html Obama Bypasses Senate Process, Filling 15 Posts By Sheryl Gay Stolberg March 27, 2010 WASHINGTON — President Obama, making a muscular show of his executive authority just one day after Congress left for spring recess, said Saturday that he would bypass the Senate and install 15 appointees, including a union lawyer whose nomination to the National Labor Relations Board was blocked last month with the help of two Democrats. Coming on the heels of Mr. Obama’s big victory on health care legislation, Saturday’s move suggests a newly emboldened president who is unafraid to provoke a confrontation with the minority party. Just two days ago, all 41 Senate Republicans sent Mr. Obama a letter urging him not to appoint the union lawyer, Craig Becker, during the recess. Mr. Obama’s action, in defiance of the Republicans, was hailed by union leaders, but it also seemed certain to intensify the partisan rancor that has enveloped Washington. “The United States Senate has the responsibility to approve or disprove of my nominees,” Mr. Obama said in a statement. “But if, in the interest of scoring political points, Republicans in the Senate refuse to exercise that responsibility, I must act in the interest of the American people and exercise my authority to fill these positions on an interim basis.”
