You really think I have a closed mind, Ed? You don't think that is the worst personal insult thrown out here on DT ever? What has happened to you?


Mafia lawyer? Like Oscar?

Quote:
Oscar Goodman, the former mayor of Las Vegas, is now the official spokesperson for the city, a director emeritus of The Mob Museum, and the namesake for the restaurant “Oscar’s Beef, Booze & Broads.”


Worst insult here? Kinda doubt that.

Or if you mean closed mind, pretty sure it's not too high either.

Lately, you've been going out of your way to find insults in other people's posts. It's like you are looking to be offended.

Worst personal insult on DT ever? Seriously? You must've missed Nareed's brilliant "cracker breeder" slam the other day...
In order to insult me, I must first value your opinion

It can be rephrased better: They take pride in a trait where any barbarian is their equal, and any jackass their superior.
Donald Trump is a fucking liar

Dirty people come clean, true...... but they will be coerced into saying anything to get themselves off. Of course what they say might be true. I am not saying that there has never been a plea deal that the person taking the deal is offering nothing but 100% honest testimony! I AM saying that since if they do NOT say what the prosecutor wants, they get NO deal! You can believe that that is not how the prosecutor will work. I believe that after tens of thousands of man hours on this witch hunt there is NOTHING that will stop the prosecutor with coming up with as many indictments as he can. Most are LIKELY correct, but not assuredly so.
So, real life works in the justice system by a prosecutor making a threat, and the EV for that person is almost always to make a deal, WHETHER OR NOT the testimony they will offer is true.


No doubt prosecutors like to get people who give up information on someone else in return for a deal. But testimony without additional evidence is only worth so much. Reasonable doubt becomes a pretty high standard to meet. Bill Cosby would already be in jail if it was that easy.

Reasonable doubt doesn't seem to be the standard of the Trump haters on the board. He is already convicted, hung, drawn and quartered.

And that's different from Hillary haters in what way?

I'm not saying it's better either ,, but it's laughable to complain about it.

Got any free WaPo articles left this month?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2018/02/18/fact-checking-trumps-error-filled-tweet-storm-about-the-russia-investigation/?hpid=hp_hp-top-table-main_fact-checker-130pm%3Ahomepage%2Fstory

That one points out untruths in this weekend's rather unpresidential tweetstorm, and goes back over a year into his tweet past pointing out more inaccuracies and inconsistencies.

Here is a free version of mostly the same thing
http://politi.co/2GpqzIy
That also includes negative bipartisans reactions to the tweets, including one from a gop member suggesting that maybe he should'nt have left the golf course.

Also reports Trump attacking lots of people, including within his administration, but NOT the Russians.

Was watching another compilation from election
night. One of the talking heads made a good point.
Trump won because millions who voteed Obama
in 2012 voted Trump in 2016. Trump ran a mostly
anti Obama campaign, he was against everything
Obama stood for. And millions of Obama voters
liked it and voted for Trump. What does that tell
us about Obama in his 2nd term..

You set a pretty low bar for yourself when anything someone else has done makes it fine for you to do it. So all school shootings have been fine other than other than the first one? To quote you from above "I'm not saying it's better either ,, but it's laughable to complain about it."
