"The president is right to be concerned about the concept of a Doug Jones in the Senate," Gaetz said. "Doug Jones will not support the president's agenda. We believe Roy Moore will. So, I think this election is looking like a lot more like a referendum on the president than a referendum on the actual candidates."


the fuck is this

I need to stop reading this thread and stop paying attention to the news.

I'll just get surprise nuked some day and live happily until it happens.

HuffPost spoke to nearly a dozen former students and teachers at schools that relied on Abeka, Bob Jones and Accelerated Christian Education curricula. Many of these students, who consider themselves no longer religious, reported feeling traumatized by their educational experiences. A number of them communicate with each other via online support groups for survivors of fundamentalist schools, including Bishop.

Some say these curriculum sources left them woefully ill-equipped to thrive in a diverse society while instilling in them racist, sexist and intolerant views of the world. Bishop said her fundamentalist education made her wary of people from other religious groups whom her teachers and textbooks had demonized.

“Anything that wasn’t Christianity was a strange religion,” said Bishop, who made it a priority to study other religious practices after high school and even spent time with the Hare Krishna. “But even other denominations were evil. Catholicism especially.”

Another former student who spoke to HuffPost under the pseudonym Natasha Balzak, was taught at home that all Muslims hate America, she said. Teachers at her Florida school reinforced this idea, telling students to pray for Muslims and other non-believers, like atheists and gay people.

“When it comes to hateful ideology and rhetoric, I was taught a lot of things to skew my mind into believing ― I guess you could call it brainwashing,” said Balzak, 27, who is using a pseudonym to protect the identity of family members who are still deeply involved in their church.


Cool!

if it gets legislated as is it will remain broken as i don;t think there's enough they can cut into welfare/medicaid (which will be harder to drum up opposition toward) and not start to cut into medicare (which will have the full force of the aarp and general public consensus against it)

i keep trying to game out what it would like like if dems recaptured the house and senate 2018/2020 while trump is still elected.

the obvious playbook is obstruction to run out the clock but like what could they do with the poison pills of tax reform w/ no remedies to the revenue shortfall?

after 2006, what major legislation was w. able to pass?

how about obama post 2010?

i had heard jokes that we'd pull out because russia was banned but there's no actual reason that would be a factor

maybe they're worried about having any americans hanging out in the korean peninsula

The president isn't the only wealthy person who nonetheless opts for fast food. Investing legend and chief executive officer of Berkshire Hathaway Warren Buffett says in the HBO documentary "Becoming Warren Buffett" that he eats breakfast at McDonald's daily. But he never spends more than $3.17.

"I tell my wife, as I shave in the morning … either $2.61, $2.95 or $3.17," he says. "And she puts that amount in the cup by me here [in the car]. When I'm not feeling quite so prosperous, I might go with the $2.61, which is two sausage patties. I put them together and pour myself a Coke."
