The grossest thing about this story is that companies are suing the government for the privilege of fleecing students.

I dunno, man. I'm not inclined to give DeVos or this administration the benefit of the doubt, but if she has divested herself from the company, then I don't really see this as a big deal.

Hell, has trump fully divested himself from his businesses? It's debatable, because AFAIK he's never set up a blind trust. So why should anyone in his cabinet? Lead by example, not exactly a strong trait of trump.

Is it Frank? I don’t think it is. The answer is no.

Did you guys ever play Civilization as a kid? Draining the swamp tiles in that game took forever. That's all I got today. Good talk, see you out there.

OK, they were called marsh tiles. Same thing. You could modify (drain) these tiles to grassland but it took like 20 turns or something stupid.

Seriously, these people are beyond warped.   The 7 countries he bombed:  Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Somalia, Yeman.  Four highlighted are on Trump's travel ban list for terrorism, but yeah, fuck  it if Obama was trying to chase the Taliban out.   We were at war with Afghanistan, Pakistan was harboring terrorists and we were hitting taliban outposts with drones, and Iraq wanted us to bomb there.  Obama obliged because of both American interests in oil and also because he was taking the fight to isis.   

Nobody "gave a damn" because he didn't go around blowing his horn about how fucking great he was and how he was chasing the taliban out of countries we weren't morally obligated to help.   

However, these idiots who tweet shit like that only get the real morons in their fanatical fan base fired up because they're often just too stupid to ask the questions like "why?"   Fuck, I can't wait till the midterms.  These dumb asses who are in charge and the dumbasses who believe allthe shit fox and fake news tweets at them have to be stopped.

Um, Sarah seems to forget how Donnie is dropping more and bigger bombs at a rate that will far surpass BHO. And as noted, there was no daily talk of nukes being a viable option.

That person is, apparently, Lebanese. Though it should be noted that retweeting the editor of infowars is a favorite pastime of hers. So that’s nice.

Connies hate Democrats who kill enemies using UMA's instead of talking tough and doing nothing or moving 100,000 troops into Iraq for a 6 month invasion that ends up being a decade long engagement that cost billions off the budget books.
