FriarReb98: Clearly you've never watched Univision.


Huh. I don't think that's an option way the hell up here, but I guess it being Mexican thing makes a bit more sense.

Mr.Uncle.Bill: Who's betting on yes?


The one I was on was guessing the number of votes. The general "pass/no pass" one had like a 70 cent no pass starting out. 

I threw a dollar at a last minute pass vote yesterday because shares were like 2 cents when it seemed like they would go into the night, playing odds and all. Would have paid 50

Is that like the opposite of "Elvis has left the building"?

notably, Trump is putting blame on Pence too

Trump doesn't write the laws or pass the legislation... but OK!


That's new since there's a Republican in office. Obama passed all the spending legislation himself for the past 8 years.

Obamacare, not literal Obama.  Some people expect ACA to die the way it is now without any changes.

It's actually the same reasoning I used a good year and a half ago on why I didn't want Hillary running - they've built the last two Democratic administrations into boogey men and will use any and all means to make sure we're terrified of what they represent, while taking credit for anything that remotely went right under them.

It means Trump is a little biatch. Obama faced genuine, quantifiable obstruction that GOP proudly admitted to for eight years and I never heard him cry about it. Trump creates enemies to blame so he can play the victim.

Mugato: busy chillin': this is odd to type...but they did the right thing. That bill was a sh*t sandwich.

Don't just pass some bullsh*t because Trumpy threw a fit... again.

What good is it going to do though? I've tried never showing up to class for the entire semester and then cramming for the final in the last 20 minutes. Doesn't work, even if it's open book.


well at least they didn't just f*ck over millions of peoples' insurance. Yet.

CSB: One time in college I overslept and ran to class because I had a quiz that. Left the text book at home. Yep, it was the one and only weekly quiz the teacher said was open book. F*ck.

This.  Not only did they not need a single House Democrat, they could shed 22 moderate House Republicans and STILL shoehorn the farking thing through.

postponed postponed or a delay until later today?

sounds like a vote may never happen, they are pulling the bill completely

yup, Ryan having conference at 4. Anyone want to take odds on him also tacking his resignation on it?

In his moment of triumph?

What I love about this GIF is that when the column of water becomes visible, you can see a dark vertical line at the bottom right of the column. That's a ship, gone completely on end.

Yeah, that was probably the most spectacular nuke test they ever did.  Holy shiat that was the Arkansas?  Flipped a Wyo class dreadnaught on its farking head.  Wow.


(Really don't mean to threadjack but...)

There's something about atomic blasts that utterly captivates me. I can seriously go down a rabbit hole of watching video of tests and reading about their capabilities for hours on end, it fascinates me entirely. Just something about the sheer, awesome power of it all, and I mean awesome in the "invoking awe" sense. Looking at before and after photos, hearing the explosion, watching the shock wave travel over land, seeing the hellflame and the mushroom bloom high up into the sky, and knowing this is something we made, this is a thing we can do. It's likely wraparound terror in that I can't fully process the monstrousness of it, so all that's left is the fascination.

That's only if all the Republicans supported it, which they didn't. But the Trumpettes will believe him anyway.

Ryan deflecting blame on his caucus, saying if they wanted a better bill they had the chance to change it
 
2017-03-24 4:15:30 PM  
Done deal, finished. Trump will publicly shrug it off. But it was his centerpiece.

Logic (heh) and an educated guess is telling me that Congress may be taking the first step in wrestling control from the White House, explains the adults showing up in force. Because it's that obvious everything about "planned cuts" and huge bucks earmarked for weaponry was wackadoodle.
Sec Def slapped his departments money away yesterday.

Implosion averted, now that ban needs attention, too much to lose with companies and all manner of prestigious world events leaving ready to put alternate plans in motion - many things are planned far in advance, they ain't waitin' it out.

Gotta say, the speed with which Home Alone Donny vandalized the whole damn neighborhood is impressive. They better have caged him,  because it's clear just leashing him would be STUPID.

So wait, Trump isn't following through with his statement that he'll let ObamaCare go if the vote didn't go through? He broke a promise? Let me get me fainting-task chair!

Has anyone actually said what exactly is wrong with ObamaCare, besides it's going to get worse?

I hate the attention whoring taking over media. STOP IT. WE WANT REAL NEWS PEOPLE NOT CELEBRITIES.

My city has always kept local news folks for a very long time, but the fading of hard hitting stories is obvious, and some of them have become vapid in public too.
