        Even if not, impeachment needs to go through the Senate, right? I think public sentiment is on the administration’s side given the state of The State. If not, this country is truly effed in the head, so whatever.

          Yes, but it’s not just about impeachment. For me, it’s more about any MAGA legislative advancements being stopped in their tracks, not to mention frivolous investigations galore into anything and everything you can think of.

        dataguru:

        In the last election I actually read a great many of the polls. Doing that I could see the games played to over-sample the demo groups that favored the Dems. You could not easily unpeel that to come up with a true number, but read enough of them and you could get a sense … get a range.

        A few days ago I picked out a few to read, in locations I knew something about. More than one happened to be in very Dem places. I was shocked to see just how skewed the polls were toward Dems. More so than in 2016.

        So think about that. In a strong Dem place there is no reason to skew so much and still see a Dem win. But they did. It seemed important enough to someone to show not only a win, but a landslide.

        I have only read a relative handful in this cycle. So in 2016 my rule of thumb was the skew was often about 3 points. Sometimes 5 or 6 with a particularly bad poll. The ones I read the other day are at least 5-6 minimum and probably more.

        And even more to the point, that is 5-6 without giving anything to the Dem / Rep differences in turnout and enthusiasm seen in actual primary contests. Like in FL the other day. Adjust the turnout assumptions and the skew well into double digits.

      So Weissman is officially in the scope of the Congressional investigation then. Time for an invite. Followed by the inevitable subpoena. Just the fact that he’s directly involved in what amounts to a sham sting operation/conspiracy followed by a Grade A Deep State Witch Hunt is beyond bad optics. It probably amounts to ethical violations. Why? Because Bruce Ohr knew all along that the dossier was crap. Weissman probably told him: “Doonnn’t worrryyy ‘bououut iiittt!!!” This on top of his contacts with the four reporters on the Manafort deal BEFORE he was assigned to the Mueller team — not just contact, but apparently “coordination”. The guy is a f*cking unethical turd, and needs to be held accountable. “Pit bull” my ass. He’s a turd.

      Good! The IT industry is being decimated by the flood of cheap labor H1B visa holders. Shoot, at one of my prior jobs they practically took over, it was disgusting. Layoff after layoff to dump the more expensive American citizens, wave after wave of incoming H1B’s, the vast majority who were from India. It’s really disturbing to go to work and feel like you were transplanted to a foreign country because you’re a minority.

        A family member has about 10 years in IT. At one of his jobs, his supervisor who was from India said she hated working with Americans because they did not do as told. When there is a problem, family member gave solutions and pointed out bad ideas. I guess in the India underlings do as told even if it is poor programming causing system lag, etc. The supervisor said she only wanted to hire from India.

        This was my first H1B experience. I thought how can you hate Americans in America. Someone needs to be told about this. Stop H1B abuse. Hire Americans.

  9. If I am repeating earlier postings, I apologize.
    Reading about the interweb thingy; the story of the day seems to be The President cancelling an annual raise for civilian federal employees. He indicated that the “budget” could not support the expense. The canceled expenditure is reported to be $25 Billion.

    Seems I have heard that figure before about a project The President is extremely enthusiastic about. Now what was it again???

    Naw, The President would not do that now, would he???

      $25B was exclusive of the 2.5% cross the board raises

      And no, he would not cancel one to fund another.
      He has good reason to cancel/freeze… most are already overpaid
      Canceling raises may cause some workers to quit, move on, which is a good thing as there are too many to start with…

      all good in my opinion…

        Yeah, speaking on behalf of Feds, that’s crap. After years of freezes from Dear President Obama, our salary is severely constrained already. If PDJT could have salary freezes for our useless employees, more power to him, and I’d behind him all the way. Talk about us all being overpaid is like talk about “all minorities are underrepresented” Nonsense. The devil is in the details. The best people are underpaid, and the useless are overpaid. Obama made the Fed into a jobs program, but not all Feds are jobs program people.

        I could make 150% of my salary if I left the Fed. This is not a guess, I have been offered that pay, and who knows what I could get if I actually looked, rather than being recruited. But I prefer serving my country.

        Contracting everyone’s salaries irrespective of ability, and irrespective of value, while the rest of the country is getting a raise, is a double whammy. If this keeps up, all that will be left is the people who can’t get other jobs.

        So I hope this is leverage for a future budget fight. Else, good grief, PDJT, wise up.

          No offense intended, but you should be able to make 150% of your salary in the private sector; that is a good thing. Private sector employees don’t enjoy any of the the job security or retirement benefits that federal employees experience.

            Apparently there is a discussion going on over whether it will be a minimum 7 day window to kill your child or they might give you up to 30 days? Post postpartum depression will take out a lot of innocent children. Even suggesting such a thing sounds like solicitation of murder which I thought was a crime.

        But really, at some point women started using it as just another form of “birth control”. Just a horrible attitude.

        And now it’s gone from “a heart-wrenching decision to abort your child” to “what the heck, just a bunch of tissue anyway- throw it out”.

        As they do with so many things, the Left/Dems took this one way too far.

Second victim the baby conceived under such circumstances. PP is more than willing to ignore the obvious need to report the situation. I wonder how many girls are at these clinics because someone else told them that they have to kill their own child. I shudder to think about it.

    If it’s been 20 yrs since this movie, how much de eper is it today. God help us.

    It makes sense to me that it is so entangled that it in no way could the horrid, evil swamp be flushed in the mere 588 days our Deplorable President is in Office. But I truly believe he is indeed working on it. I felt he was conveying that message during his campaign at the rallies I attended and his words at last night’s rally convince me of it.
