    That depends on the outcome. If this really does end up costing us hundreds of millions of dollars, the GOP will want it forgotten faster than a bush presidency.

    ^ They've wasted nearly that much money trying to repeal the ACA alone what's a few more millions flushed down the toilet.

    So despite Obama telling Congress that signing the 9/11 bill could have in terms of other countries suing the US due to our militaries' actions and the Senate voting to override his veto, many of them look like they finally read the bill and are blaming Obama for not explaining the bill better

    Makes sense he should have to explain whats in a bill he's didn't create or sponsor.

    The police do seem to have huge policy problems with domestic disturbances. My girlfriend's boss had violent squatters living in his house for months, doing drugs in front of his kids. The cops wouldn't do shit because it was a "domestic issue".

    So much for history being written by the winners huh?
    http://www.rawstory.com/2016/09/wash...during-slavery

    According to the document, African-Americans “took full advantage” of welfare programs that were created by President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “Great Society.”
    “The long-term results, however, have been devastating,” the document says. “Over three centuries of a strong work ethic, cohesive families, the thirst for education and Christian values as vital parts of the African-American heritage gave way to long-term dependence on the government and the erosion of the work ethic.”
    Someone didn't tell this guy blacks had a strong work ethic during slavery because they were coerced into working under threat of torture and death. This isn't even getting into the fact that Slaves weren't allowed to learn and their descendants were kept from going to white schools under Jim Crow.

    Oceans are definitely going to rise at least some and animal species are screwed... and if you live on the coast or an island... don't....

    Yeah, we're fucked. We've messed up the world. But despite the headlines its not the point of no return... yet.

    Doesn't help that republicans are still declaring global climate change is a myth.

    Well we had one in the next town over a few years ago, but I think she's in jail now.

    Wonder if exorcism is a typical three year program, with add-ons if you want to get a master's degree.

    Or if it's more like a trade school with a focus on workplace education. Y'know shadowing a trained exorcist in the field.

    The United Brotherhood of Exorcists is a key pillar of the AFL-CIO.

    Trump University had an exorcism program; it was a VHS tape of Father Guido Sarducci skits.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    Wonder if there has ever been a exorcist strike.

    The great exorcist strike of 89 was hard on all of us

    I thought it was just typical police recklessness... which would be less bad?
