    The reason why BetaPhin is freaking out (which is also the reason why he defends Trump and wants right-wing justices) is because he's terrified of losing his white male privilege. That's really all there is to it. All of his melts make perfect sense when you understand that.

    You know it's not that easy and I'm not going to sit here and say I'm overly qualified to fully answer. Start with defining what "taxable income" is. Is it solely the paycheck you receive week, bi-weekly, monthly? Is it interest, dividends, , capital gains, business income, real estate? What I do know is a lot of Americans are still struggling to make ends meet while the costs of their healthcare, education, food, utilities, etc. are all going up and wages are basically stagnant, yet the wealthy keep getting wealthier. That is not a sustainable future for America. Our Tax Policy needs an overhaul in way that makes the system work for everyone.

    I thank God every day for people like you and me. Men with emotions and not afraid to show it. The type that help humanity. The type that got pissed off, full of emotion after 9/11. Emotion that motivates thousands to sign up to destroy our enemies. Emotion the motivates people to help those in need, who are less fortunate. Emotion that helps us understand or try to understand what it’s like to be a minority or a woman and provide empathy. To correct the fucked up shit in the past.

    You keep citing anecdotal evidence to make your case. Empirical evidence suggests the opposite. Look, a lot of people are pretty ignorant in general. So both parties are filled with them. But if you want to use education level as a rough proxy (I realize it's not perfect) for the intelligent/informed portion of the electorate, then Trump lost to these voters....and the cross-party movement shows it. Trump stole some non-college educated whites from the Dems while Hillary was able to siphon off some college-educated conservatives. The former are much greater in number though so it was a winning trade for Trump. He's a grifter and a lot of people got grifted.

    The NYT op-ed provides a convincing case that this presidency is now in a constitutional crisis. One the one hand, there apparently are administration officials who are unconstitutionally usurping power and authority that is delegated to the president. The stated reason for doing so may garner sympathy from some within this administration who are concerned that the president is not fit or capable of discharging the office, and that many in the cabinet are cooperating in this regard to thwart him. But on the other hand, you have administration officials, who seem to be unable to fulfill their constitutional duty under the 25th amendment, and remove a president who is unfit for the office. The people in the administration can’t have it both ways: they can’t prevent the president from exercising constitutionally granted powers out of concern that he’s not fit to hold the office, and then refuse to take action under the 25th amendment.

    A gov't defense contractor talking about the gov't running a deficit. Guess what is helping make that deficit? Defense spending. I bet the NWS could have the best fucking forecasting computer in the world if it was given the funding of just one F22 or nuke carrier and all that comes with.

    NOAA and the NWS are a bargain. For the size and scope of the agency and everything it does it's the deal of the century. On the other hand the department of defense is probably the worst deal you could make. $6-700 billion (the published number) every single year for a military that would get its clock cleaned against China or Russia and has trouble with insurgents living in caves using improvised weaponry?

    This is like WW2. At first the Nazis (Trump and his supporters) were kicking ass...elated at every turn. Winning battles. But now we are at early 1945. The Allied Western Front (Avenatti, Cohen et al) are squeezing in from the west. The Russians (Mueller) are sweeping into Germany from the east. Trump is in a bunker in Berlin. It's beautiful.
