    Papi likes to talk a lot about Detroit politics, but Trump has a lot in common with Kwame Kilpatrick. Both used the government to enrich the lives of themselves and their family, both enjoyed partying with women other than their wives, Kwame took all the credit for the accomplishments of Dennis Archer and put all the blame for the bankruptcy on Archer and never took responsibility, both of them were victims and under a witch hunt, or as Kwame described it, a lynching. Bernard even likened it to being a Jew during the Holocaust. Finally, both of their fixers are in jail. My family was a big supporter of Kwame in the beginning. He was young, intelligent, and charismatic. Soon after he took office, his malfeasance came to light. This is where Papi and I differ greatly. Even though Kwame is a member of my tribe, I quickly disowned him. I ended up voting for Hansen Clarke in the primary and then Freeman Hendrix in the general. I wasn't brainwashed into supporting Kwame since he was part of my tribe. Anyways, back to the development front. My mother is a former city employee who was last in the Detroit planning and development department. She still maintains contacts and keeps abreast of what is going on in Detroit. Papi is full of ****. There is no evidence that federal tax cuts have caused any increase in economic development in the city of Detroit. Let's not forget, Papi originally made the claim about Gilbert and Illitch which was easily debunked. Shinola had announced their plans and started on their hotel before Trump. Beaumont is opening urgent care centers in southeast Michigan (Thanks Obamacare) and not all in Detroit or Tliab's district. Comerica announced their mortgage program in 2017 before the Trump tax cuts. Flagstar and Chase announced similar programs before Trump took office. Those are just off the top of my head. I'm not researching your data for you. Papi is like an auto mechanic who thinks he's talking to a naive woman. He'll try to talk smart about technical terms about how a car operates thinking he has some sort of intellectual superiority all the while we can see through his bull****. Papi is like my court jester. I clap and he entertains me.

    This whole episode is just sickening. And I’m not just talking about the alleged sexual assaults, which on their are sickening. It’s the reaction of Republican Party and its basket of deplorables that turns my stomach. It was bad enough when Trump nominated a political operative like Kavanaugh to the open seat, but it was easy to brush it aside as the inherent cost of the republicans winning the presidency along with a senate majority. But it is clear that the White House and Congress didn’t care one bit about identifying a worthy jurist to nominate to arguably one of the most important and powerful positions in country. Politcal leanings aside, a Supreme Court justice needs to be an impeccable human. Instead, the deplorables just looked for biggest politcal stooge they could find that wears a robe to work. Now we’ve got elected representatives going on the record to normalize and excuse sexual assault.

    No? Nothing? Yeah, I didn't think so. I'll illuminate for everyone else. Over 1 million acres of federal land in Utah was earmarked by Obama for Bears Ears National Monument, which is his right under the Antiquities Act passed during Teddy Roosevelt's administration in 1906. American Indian leaders had been pushing for this for years, and Obama delivered for them. Since the land was already federal land, the federal government already had jurisdiction over it. There was no grab of land by Obama from anyone, because Obama was already the executive authority over the land. Utah Republicans opposed the creation of a national monument because they themselves wanted to preserve only a portion of that land, while handing off the remainder of it to private interests to extract natural gas or otherwise develop for commercial use. IOW, there was money in it for them, and Obama preëmpted that. That's why they're pissed off. You, of course, are pissed off for a different reason: Obama acted like a boss, and that's because he was the boss. So, anyway, not only did Obama not grab any land from private citizens, or even from a state, but also, his action fell squarely within his rights codified in an already existing law. It is the complete opposite of what the situation would be if Trump were to declare a national emergency where there clearly isn't any, and then were to use the military to seize land not already owned by the federal government or by one of the United States, but instead owned by private citizens. Complete opposite. And bonus: the op-ed piece from The Hill that you cited was penned by a guy named Gary L. Gregg II who is listed in the piece as "director of the McConnell Center at the University of Louisville". For those who don't already know, The McConnell Center is an endowed institution created in 1991 by ... drum roll, please ... U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell, aka Obama's arch-nemesis. Another swing and a miss. You're the Chris Davis of the political forum, minus the home runs.

    Actually, I'm quite accurate with my assessment of you. I (and I assume others) have no issue with you believing that this never happened. That is your right to have your own opinion. I DO have an issue with you disrespecting women with that picture that you decided to post. I was raped five years ago. That's a whole lot less than thirty years. And you know what? I don't remember every single detail of the moment, how I got there, who else was there, etc. I remember what happened and who I was with. If I wanted to prosecute now, there would be no evidence because I was too ashamed to tell anyone at the time, as I thought it was my fault. I could still count on one hand how many people know. And the reason for that is people like you who automatically shame the victim, accuse them of lying, and make fun of them. Your words show that you don't understand or care how being assaulted ruins your psyche and your life. You can say that there's no proof of the assault occurring, but there is no proof of it not either. That is why an investigation is necessary. There is no "innocent until proven guilty", he isn't on trial. Anyone that objects to an investigation is putting politics over the safety and concerns of many women. I don't want a rapist making decisions about my body, and I'm sure you wouldn't want one having control over your daughters either. So why not allow due process and if he's innocent, it will come out in the investigation?

    I went to the nearby Chinese restaurant to fulfill a takeout order for my wife. While I was waiting for my food, another guy who was waiting for his food started a video on his smartphone full blast for all to hear. He was watching, I guess, a Fox News feed where they were blathering about capitalism and socialism and Venezuela and 1000% inflation and whatnot. The place is small, so you can't not hear it. I didn't want to hear it. I didn't want to hear anything. I just wanted to get my food and leave. So I opened the music app on my own phone and started playing, at full blast, "People of the Sun" by Rage Against the Machine. After maybe ten or so seconds he looked up from his phone at me. I looked at him and smiled. He smiled back. He turned off his phone. I turned off my phone. We waited in blissful silence until I got my food a couple minutes later. As I left, I smiled and nodded at him. He smiled and nodded back. See? We can all get along after all.

    It's not just about making better choices - otherwise so many people wouldn't be at the bottom - not everyone is stupid. You can take all the risks you want, but if you don't have control of the means of production or the capital to acquire it, you're not going to be able to break into the protectionist club very easily.

    You wouldn't have ever heard about the murder of Seth Rich if it weren't for the fake news that Jerome Corsi, Fox News and others had pumped out about him. So, the very fact that you are hemming and hawing about how "awfully suspicious" it was all comes down to the fake news. We actually do know! We actually ******* know that Seth Rich and his family were dragged through the mud by a bunch of conspiracy theorists for their own political ends. Jerome Corsi literally admitted it. So dupes like yourself can come around and hem and haw about how "awfully suspicious" it looks and how about "how we'll never know" and all that bull****.... all pure spectulation and all nihilistic BS, the logical end of which means that there can be no such thing as common truth. Just own the fact that you fell for it. For once.

    Norway has an increasingly diverse population - about 15% first or second generation immigrant and going quickly. It's changed a lot. And if you really think Quisling is the country's most famous historical figure then you need to go back to school to avoid appearing as if you're ignorant. As a hint, take a look at the emojis on your phone - you may have an a-ha moment. As a model for economic growth? Stupid idea because of oil. But you don't need to have an identical economic structure to consider some of the things which have been done societally.

    So as I was thinking about the team and game threads this year, it dawned on me when we look back on this group in 20 years its gonna be a bunch of who-who's and he played-here-guys. So in honor of the 2019 Tigers each game thread will feature a member of the Forgotten Tigers. None of the players featured will have played more than 2 years for the Tigers or 250 games. That means some well known guys that played part of three years at 20 then went on to stardom, didn't make the cut. Neither did those guys that played in every game for two years. Some are well known, there are even two or three all-stars in the bunch. Others are our version of Moonlight Graham. So let's have some fun in 2019, let's remember some guys and Let's Go Tigers!

    So she is a total fraud because she: a) never told a guy she dated once about the alleged incident with Kavanaugh, b) she once flew on a propeller plane around Hawaii without apparent discomfort, c) she allegedly cheated on the guy when they were a long distance relationship, and d) she charged $600 on a joint credit card after they broke up (after being removed from the card?) and initially denied doing so. Now, bear in mind, per your past definitions, this guy has no facts, just a bunch of unsubstantiated allegations. Also, bear in mind, per your definition of a 'total fraud', I can *very* easily demonstrate Donald Trump is a 'total fraud'. So if Ford is a total fraud, why do you support an even larger fraud in Donald Trump, Stan?

    My American friends, you know how much I love you. But what a stupid *** you have elected as your president. Please promise the rest of us that you will do something about it and that this aberration will only last for another two and a half years. We're all waiting for the Democratic candidate that will emerge, or the Republican that will challenge him. But this just can't go on. There is no better place to start than Michigan. Let's get busy. His comments today about Trudeau are among his funniest ever, although there are at least a thousand others on the list. It's clear that he thinks that he is still on the schoolyard, and that he thinks that he could take Macron or Merkel in a fight. I seriously doubt it, but that' s what he thinks. But Trudeau? No way, even Trump knows that. Trudeau is strong, he's fit, and part of his training regime has been boxing, and Trump knows that if he ever said "see you after school" to Trudeau he'd be on the deck, unconscious, within 5 seconds. So he did what every bully would do in that situation, he ran, and then at a safe distance he called Trudeau "weak". There are lots of things that I think that Trudeau could improve upon but his world-weary patience when asked about Trump is perfect for us. He missed an opportunity though, when calling out Trump about the "national security" rationale for tariffs on steel and aluminum. He mentioned that Canadians and Americans were fighting side by side in two world wars and he resisted the cheap shot about us waiting for the isolationist Americans to arrive in both instances, especially the second time. But what he should have said, in response to the "national security" angle, was to ask everybody in the current administration to take 10 minutes off and Google "Canadian embassy Tehran 1979", surely among the darkest hours that your country has ever experienced, and then after actually learning something see if Canada could be described as a "national security threat" during that experience.

    Hi, just leaning over your back fence, offering unsolicited advice again, that is worth exactly what you paid for it. I haven't been in here in months, but I came in tonight to see the reaction to his announced tariffs today against Mexican and Canadian imports of steel and aluminum. So I was looking for the thread with the discussion about how he is single-handedly destroying your economy. I couldn't find one, which I have to admit surprised me. So I randomly picked this thread. It's been obvious of course for months that he doesn't have the first ******* clue about how international trade works, and I don't think that it's because he won't read lengthy briefings. That's the popular narrative, but I don't think that that is correct. I think that the real reason why he doesn't understand international trade and the positive effects that it has on the US economy is that he is simply too ******* stupid. You've elected the stupidest ******* guy to be your chief executive in the entire history of your country. I say this with no animosity at all, please do not misunderstand me. I love all of my friends here. And if your friends won't tell you the truth, who will? Everyone in your country, Democrat or Republican or Independent, shares in your collective guilt about why he is your President, especially Democrats who anointed Hillary, the single worst candidate of all time except for Trump. How much damage can he do to your economy, and mine, in the next 2 years? It's hard to say. The main thing is to try to contain the damage until 2020, and then because of the political activism of everybody on this message board things can get back to reality after that.

    I want to clarify, since my earlier post was jumbled together. 1. Obama was reluctant to go public with the info about the Russia meddling during the campaign because he didn't want to to become a political issue. His main concern was securing the election just in case they were going to try to tamper. 2. There was a massive statement prepared by all of the intelligence agencies that Comey scuttled because he didn't want news of the counterintelligence investigation to go public yet. 3. The statement that was put out by a few of the intelligence agencies was overshadowed by the Access Hollywood tapes. 4. Clinton's campaign was aware of the intelligence agency report coming and had developed some messaging about that. They were not prepared for Access Hollywood, suggesting to me that at least her campaign was not behind it. Doesn't mean some wealthy donor or superPac wasn't. 5. As I said, Fahrenhold is the one who reported the Access Hollywood thing. He has a history of digging on his own and/or crowd sourcing versus relying on insider info. Makes me more likely to believe he wasn't fed that tape by a political operative, but came across it on his own. I could be wrong, and if there's sourcing to the contrary I will gladly buy it. 6. Finally, and I didn't bring this up in the other post. I don't know the exact timeline, but Obama got McConnell and Ryan together with leaders from the intelligence agency and was trying to get them to join him in announcing to the public about Russian meddling, so it would be bipartisan and apolitical. Ryan was on board, McConnell wouldn't budge. All public record. All told, there were some mistakes in the Obama administration dealing with Russia, particularly well before the election. Today's talking point from Stan and POTUS is bogus though.

    No more drug ads on TV. These are called "direct-to-consumer" in official parlance. 1. I'm sick of the regional accents. 2. I'm sick of the happy vignette that play while the voice over tells you about the dire side effects. 3. I'm sick of the idea that people with zero expertise are being told that magic pills will fix their problems and to go do intellectual battle with their physician to get treated with said magic pill. The United States and New Zealand are the only first world countries that allows these. Doctors hate them.

    Hot Take: Alexandria Ocasio Cortez isn't even close to being the least mature and least intellectual person in Congress. She just has a pack of jackals watching her every move because they badly want to make her a caricature of everything they dont like. From her political beliefs to the color of her skin. I'll be honest, shes too far to the left for me. But she's not dumb, shes just a normal person with normal problems and normal financial wealth who decided to run for Congress. And she won. And perhaps we need more normal people with normal problems and normal finances in government.

    My great-grandparents lost just about everything when Hitler invaded Poland, and all the money they had invested in Polish bearer bonds became worthless. This is something that the 1% should keep in mind. To continually squeeze the middle class into oblivion to make the rich richer is going to burst like a bubble sooner than later, and when most of one's wealth is determined by the arbitrary value ascribed to a piece of paper or the binary code used to stand in for a collection of said paper, the people who have the most, have the most to lose. Tax cuts and trickle down can work if the circumstances are right, and one has the political backbone to not spend more than we have. That's why it worked for Reagan. Bringing a 70-90% tax rate down to 28% moves money out of shelters, lowers interest rates, and causes that rising tide that raises all boats. But Arthur Laffer was a g****mned Nobel Prize winner. Who the **** do we have theorizing policy now? We're not moving 70 to 28 anymore, we're letting people loophole out of paying 35 on millions and millions of dollars. We need someone to step up and get the ultrarich to pay their fair share or even an unfair share, by convincing them it is their best interest to have a thriving middle class. Henry Ford had it right when he paid $5 a day on a 5 day work week. People need the money to buy the cars and the time to use the cars. Without a strong middle class, the bubble creating the super wealthy pops, and the whole system crumbles. It almost happened in 2008. How long will that band-aid hold? So, a mainstream third party should regard the ultrarich as such, and support a thriving middle class. It should also stay out of the business of micromananging from Washington -- we have 50 separate state governments, let them determine what is best for education and health care and whatnot within their borders -- because what is best for California may not be best for South Carolina, and what might be best for Maine, may not be best for Wyoming, etc. And if we have 50 separate laboratories trying to solve the same problem, we can figure out what works better and what makes things worse, and if Iowa does something that works so well, then maybe New Mexico tries it with significant success, and then maybe Tennessee tweaks it and makes it better, and when Idaho tries it and it doesn't work well for them, they do something else that works for them. It should also put an end to identity politics by encouraging a look-forward policy, to provide the equality of opportunity for all -- men, women, gay, straight, white, black, Asian, etc. Stop the pandering and bring the results. It should also fix immigration policy, by actually fixing what's broken, not playing the extremes between open borders and a border wall --- land of opportunity, melting pot, rugged individualism -- these are the things that made America great, and the things we need to embrace if we want to make America great again. Not ugly made-in-china hats. Wow, that's a lot, even for me. (Mic Drop).

    Glad to see Chief Wahoo and the Tomahawk chop both go down on Columbus day. Poetic justice.

    I don't know why you even post here anymore. You're still insisting that victims of sexual abuse need documented proof - it doesn't happen that way. Why are you still doing that? Don't you know that predators take that sort of caution before they act? It never happens in front of a video camera or in front of witnesses who will testify. Never. Ask your favourite Catholic priest. You are clueless, absolutely clueless. This is a forum for sensible people who have legitimate differences of opinion between left and right in politics and economics, and both of those are acceptable points of view. You are neither left nor right, you are a misogynistic, xenophobic Trumper. You do not belong in a forum with decent conservatives and liberals, and it is time for you to leave.

    Again, this is all so much nonsense. To be offended by Hillary arranging to have people killed, you have to actually believe people have never arranged to have others killed before.......many, many times.
