      The difference is, Trump HAS called out Nazis. Obama NEVER called out Islamic terrorists.

        Yes, but the truth does not matter when you talk to people with hateful bias.
        Thet convince themselves a lie is truth – so you confront them with logic.

          Logic doesn’t work on them either. It is all about their emotions. They have to feel good about themselves. Thus they can’t be wrong. After all they are good people. How dare you try to prove them wrong. You are evil. Using Lies not truth, warped thinking not logic. Off with you you hater. What a horrid person. So glad it went away. Glad Obama rightfully used the government to protect us from it. And off they go to get more adulation to reaffirm their belief.

    Well now this is interesting. Iran displays their new Khoramshahr missile, with a range of 1,250 miles, in public for the first time. Key phrase is that is it not operational at this time.

    About the Strange endorsement. I have not seen Trump enthusiasts about endorsing Strange at all, in fact it seems matter of factly, like business, something he is expected to do. I doubt Trump has had time to stew on it like the rest of us have with all he has to deal with. My first thoughts were, Trump has made a deal with McConnell to get McConnell on board and repeal healthcare. Obviously thats not the case. I dont know. What I do know is, the Trump train goes through tunnels and it gets real dark, I trust Trump to be engineer and Trump trusts me not to jump off. We dont have to agree. Trump has superb business skills, His supporters have skills Trump doesn’t. The goal is MAGA. I kinda get a feeling that if Strange were to lose, Trump aint gonna lose no sleep. He has a plan B. I love Trump like that. Always got a plan B

        LOL. No.

        To think that PDJT would campaign for Strange hoping he would lose because he believes that his people will “know” he really wants us to support Moore is one of the most ridiculous statements put out today by people who want to undermine PDJT by supporting Moore.

        I trust Trump. You should, too.

          It’s the same type of conservatives who supported Cruz. They are constantly looking for ideological purity, and so someone who uses rhetoric like Moore appeals to them. They try to square this with their PDJT support, and the pretzel logic ensues.

          My disappointment is not with POTUS but with Bannon, Gorka, Palin Cohmers and others who are betraying POTUS by standing behind a guy who does not have President’s back.
          Bannon lied to us how he was going to support Trump and instead is doing the opposite by dividing Trump’s base..I cannot get over that.

              People who supported Cruz have a certain way of thinking and seeing the world. That is why ideologues like Cruz appeal to them. They simply aren’t pragmatic like PDJT, which is why they never win any meaningful political battles. Filibusters are the best they can achieve. PDJT gave Bannon and Gorka a chance, but PDJT is about results. Ideology doesn’t equal results.

I don’t know what these people are thinking, but they can’t be true patriots if they advocate what amounts to a coup against our Constitutional Republic.

    The Moore supporters here can’t point to ANYTHING the man has accomplished SUCCESSFULLY. He stood up for the 10 Commandments and lost his seat as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. That means 8 other ALABAMA justices voted to oust him. These were not San Francisco liberals. Muh principles.

    Second case involved him defying the U.S. Supreme Court on gay marriages. Moore stood his ground defiantly, and had to be removed, making him the only state Supreme Court Justice to be removed TWICE because HE WOULDNT FOLLOW THE LAW. This may be a Guinness world’s record.

    To those who wish to follow this diminutive reincarnation of George Wallace, I say “bless your heart.” I do not share your enthusiasm for prima donnas who do nothing but stand up to authority and get absolutely NOTHING ACCOMPLISHED.

    President Trumps needs an ally in the Senate. Moore is not a dependable ally. Not now, not ever.

      Regarding Moore defying SC on gay marriage. There are plenty of people with good will who believe the Supreme Court does not make law in that gay marriage case.And some think also that man-made laws do not usurp natural law. I can’t discount Judge Moore for his disagreement with gay marriage.

I have a meeting with BCBS tomorrow and I am going to ask that question because it is very quiet. The tax takes effect on January 1, 2018.

          psadie: I believe you are sounding the alarm before any fire is detected, and worrying seniors unnecessarily..

          The premium payments for Medicare B and D have not been finalized yet. Some increase is anticipated for individuals and couples filing tax returns reporting incomes in the so-called “wealthy” categories. Those in the lower brackets will probably not have an increase of have a small one. This is what I was able to extract from a number of articles I read. Again, these are guesstimates and more will be known when Medicare distributes the usual notices closer to the end of the year.

              The key for me is to only insure for losses I can’t afford to absorb.

              Otherwise I am paying for the loss plus a percentage to the insurance company.

              Catastrophic health insurance is a good idea for me as a car accident, or serious health problem would bankrupt me otherwise.

              But everyday health care is within my means to pay for, so why pay for insurance with its necessary overhead?

              I’m always surprised by how many people buy warrantees for their electronic devices (insurance really). They are paying a huge premium for a loss they can afford to absorb.

              And the same applies to health insurance that covers every little thing like O’care requires.

          Oh, I see. I misunderstood and was thinking about the government medicare costs that are generally the same next year.
          But the medicare supplements (which are necessary) are indeed going up as they are private insurance being driven by the same pressures obamacare is putting on all private insurance.
          As a federal retiree, I can get BCBS for my medicare supplement at a good rate, but it is relentlessly going up year after year far in excess of inflation.

    Briefing With Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS Brett McGurk

    Transcript
    https://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2017/09/274392.htm

    Things are bad – over 1 million displaced persons in Iraq, hundreds (if not thousands) of IEDs in Iraq, but reconstruction is ongoing, and getting better. Kuwait is hosting a reconstruction conference for Iraq; Iraq, Saudi, and Jordan opening border crossings and cooperation talks continue.

    Raqqa is still very much in the fight, with misunderstandings and potential conflicts being worked out successfully between U.S. and Russia, those reports in the foreign blogs notwithstanding.

    And no, we are not pushing regime change in Syria. Ignore the Fake News.
    McGurk “in terms of areas that are retaken (inaudible) ISIS, they will be controlled by the local people who know the areas, pending a longer-term political settlement to the civil war.”
    Just like SOS Tillerson – and Pres Trump – said.
