Indiana's governor signed SB442 which allows the state to "clean up" or delete names from the rolls of registered voters without contacting the voter prior to deleting their name.

League of Women Voters and the NAACP have filed stating its a violation of the National Voter Registration Act that requires notification ptior to names being taken off the rolls.

Between 2012 and 2014 Indiana officials removed 22% of registered voters names and since the most recent bill went into effect in July 481,000 more names have been removed.

Do we get to guess where most of those voters lived in the state?

Remember when the Director of The Office of Federal Ethics resigned 2 months ago?  

Its because of shit like this.  Trump is making millions as CEO's and lobbyists buy memberships at his golf resort properties.

Trump real estate companies are marketing and leasing high end residences to well heeled Russians with expectant spouses /significant others so their birth will occur in the US giving the newborns dual citizenship.

Guess that's different than people coming in from countries south of the US border who have been vilified by GOP politicians including President Trump.

A big difference is the folks are coming in through the Mexican border and aren't leasing Trump properties.

Ethics? Ethics? We don't need no stinkin ethics!

Wonder who visits Trumps on his frequent trips to Mar-a-laga?

AG Jeff "The Idiot" Sessions and the FBI are saying the visitor's list isn't subject to The Freedom of Information Act so keep wondering.

No tax returns, no visitor lists.

Just trust him while he enriches himself and his family. Only 7 plu more years if he gets his way.

As usual more fake news from Krugman and the NYTimes....

And as usual more of the antiTumpists retweet the fake shit than the correction. All tribal and no truth.

Josh Jordan‏Verified account @NumbersMuncher 14h14 hours ago

Tweet w/ incorrect info that goes against Trump: 9,600+ RTs.

Tweet correcting first tweet's wrong accusation: 263 RTs.

Every single time.





But it's ok with Bob and his boys here since they love the lies.

If you're so interested in truth, why don't you ever call out Trump for his lies via Twitter? Is it because you are also a dishonest "tribalist"?

I could join the chorus here but what's the fun in that? The rest of you do quite well in parroting the media.

Didn't see a single one of you call Bob on naming Melania Trump as a sexual predator......so tell me again how you're down the middle and believers in the truth?

Melania Trump isn't a sexual predator. She's a whore willing to marry one because she craves money and power. She'd never marry him if he was even making 500K a year. Her platform is social media bullying, but when her paycheck pos husband does it she just laughs it off and says "oh if you hit Donnie he hits back". She's scum and deserves him.
To hell with both of them.

I do not follow Bob around tSwill and read all of his posts. So I have no idea what you are talking about.

Here is what I do know. Most of us will owe up to our trolling. That includes Bob. Meanwhile, you act like you are above it all, start threads asking for people to be banned for trolling because trolling is beneath you, but then troll tBin all day. Yet, somehow that does not fit into your definition of hypocritical.

Listen, you just parrot Hannity, Limbaugh, and whatever sites you read. Once the conversation turns analytical and requires independent thought, you disappear. I once suggested you read some of the original discourse from the framers of the Constitution. I cannot recall the context of the conversation other than you responding with "I don't have time for that." But you have time to scour the Internet all day looking for all sorts of links? Translation: the next independent thought you have will be your first. Well, you do have a lot of original thoughts on pie and milk.

The Sage of Mio is a internet bomb thrower.
Truth has never been a consideration.

Eventually he'll revert to name calling, foul language, masturbating emoticon bombs and leave because people question his posts.

Remember when Republicans slammed President Obama for his excessive use of executive orders?

Seemed a good time to note President Trump just signed his 50th executive order today. That's a little over 6 per month.

Obama signed 276 in his 96 months in office or a bit fewer than 3 per month.

Y'all wanna know something that grinds my gears? The way places like CNN will put in the word "accidentally" in the first sentence of this article. Fuck you cnn, he didn't accidentally say that. He has no clue that he's president of the Virgin Islands too. He's a massive dipshit who couldn't pass an 8th grade social studies test if you gave him one right now.

Massive idiot president says he talked to president of the Virgin Islands which is him, the massive idiot

funny story..

my daughter hasn't stood for the Pledge of Allegiance in school since way back in middle school - for a long time, she was the only kid that would just sit and doodle or read or whatever. Now she says about a third of the class she's in (her senior year) just sits down too.

so it's nice to see that some kids go to school to learn and not be indoctrinated by the government and some jingoistic pledge she doesn't believe in.

To summarize, I could find 100 videos of idiot Trump supporters, Loose could find 100 videos of idiot liberals or [whoever] supporters, and none of it means anything. It's funny. I like watching these videos. But it means nothing.

I know it means everything to Loose, but in reality, it's all so meaningless. I could take a camera to a Trump event, interview 100 people, and find 5-10 crazies among that 100 to put on TV. Loose could have done the same at a Hillary event or a Bernie event. The only thing funnier than the videos are the people that take them seriously.

I would like to know why someone like this should be legally allowed to continue to own guns. For me, when you go on record as saying “I would shoot this person that clearly doesn’t deserve being shot” then you should immediately lose your gun owning right. You’ve clearly showed yourself as completely incapable of responsibly owning a gun.
