Turning down tax payer money to fight the concept of murder under the guise of Jihad.  Why aren't they doing that anyway?

http://www.tmz.com/2017/02/07/george-lopez-show-kicks-out-fan/

I remember sometime more than 30 yrs ago I took a nurse on a first date to a comedy show that looked like it would be fun in the Philadelphia burbs.

We went in and got seats near the back .   The comedian came on and started his routine.  The subject matter was extraordinarily vile and what for those days was way over the top.   He would humilate to the nth degree people in the first row or two.  All I could think of was thank God we were near the back.

Finally I looked at her and asked would you like to leave and she replied yes.  I explained how mortified I was and had no idea the show would be anything so degrading and disgusting.  She understood and w were fine

BTW the comedian was Andrew Dice Clay.  Before he made it big (for awhile).
69  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: The war on the rule of law on: February 07, 2017, 09:33:38 AM
Bigdog,

Thanks for the very thought provoking posts.  

I listened to most of the tape.  Interesting and sharp discussions about  Yate's choices (if I understood it all correctly - it was late at night and I was exhausted)

She claimed as a matter of Stated Dept policy or law she should not or could not enforce Trump's executive order.
I think the speakers agreed she was wrong to claim that doing so on behalf of Stated Dept. legal grounds was wrong. For her to refuse to do so on some personal interpretation of  moral or idealistic grounds is reasonable.

She had every right to refuse for herself but should  not have invoked that she was doing so as representing the State Dept.

She had 2 choices.  one : resign  two : make a public statement (as she did) and refuse to carry out the orders.  

If she chose the former choice she could still make a public statement about what her reasons were.

If she chose the second choice she would have to know she would be fired.  So either way she had to know she was "falling on her sword" .

She appears to have thought that either choice was "equivalent" and for unclear reason (perhaps she "misread" or misinterpreted State Dept law is hypothesized as her assuming equivalence though not to my understanding the true motive is not known) chose to make a public statement and refuse on some false legal grounds .

This is all well and good.
Now Trump fires her and the NYT implies he impugns her character by calling her "weak" on immigration.    And the NYT claims that by doing so Trump or his representatives undermine their strong legal footing against her actions.

I assume the NYT would also like to claim impugning her character is "un Presidential".

I disagree with them on both points and hold their criticism is a veiled device  to politically undermine Trump.  I also feel that it is reasonable to state Yates IS weak on immigration by tying her refusal to enforce an executive order on immigration which is designed to protect American citizens  to refusing to participate with actions  the President deems are necessary to best protect American citizens.

Either way it is hard to fathom that her criticism and the way in which she decided to go public with a press conference was also not a somewhat veiled to effort to politically undermine her new boss.
Political showomanship was part of the equation.   It would be pushing the limits of credulity that she had not to at least some degree  coordinated with Democratic political  operatives.

Bottom line for me is I don't disagree with Trump's tweet.

(Of course I am just one more opinion and of course I have political biases too.)

ad hominem:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_hominem

If any one with a brain is to suppose that Yates was not being political and was in her mind trying to uphold some idealist principle will not convince most on the left.
If she refused to carry out executive orders she is weak on enforcement.

If her personal beliefs (political ) were not at the core of what she did then what was?  Soros giving her a check?

If this is all the NYslimes can come up with,  criticizing Trump not because he had every right to fire her but because he made a statement that she is weak on immigration then the socialist NY paper  is reduced to  desperately scraping from the bottom of the barrel anything they can to find a fault with Trump.

Women doctors do tend to pick fields with hours are more 9 to 5 I believe.   For many years they were far more likely to pick salaried jobs then go into an office on their own.  Though that trend has reversed for all doctors these days.

Perhaps they were paid less in groups of doctors or did not make partnership or perhaps in academia based on being female but other then that it HAS to be that they are working less hard, or less hours.

So when I see occasional stories that female doctors don't make as much and implying it is because they don't have a penis then I know it is it can't be true

Do these authors mean to tell me that women are singled out for lower payments from Medicare, Aetna, United Healthcare , Blue shield cross?

I remember once about 30 yrs ago standing on the side of a cruise ship with a cabin mate I met on the cruise.
He was from Arizona and of Mexican heritage.  Nice guy.  Owned a night club somewhere in Arizona

while standing at the rail side of the docked cruise ship in a Mexican city port of call we saw 3 Mexicans trying to get from one  side of a chain linked fence to the other side just below and in front of us.   They walked up to the fence and lifted up the bottom of it and then one by one they  scooted under it brushing along the pavement to get to other side.

What was very odd about the whole thing was was that there was a open walk way just about 10 feet away.  All they had to do was step a few feet over and walk through to the other side.
We were kind of standing there watching this and scratching our heads when my friend said ,

"typical stupid Mexicans"

I was surprised he said that being he was from Mexico himself and never forgot it .

"In their triumphal disdain for Washington mores, Mr. Trump and his advisers are making too many rookie mistakes. They were right to fire Ms. Yates, but the mess has emboldened their opponents, and a smarter White House staff would have avoided putting the President in position where he had to"

Maybe or maybe not.  Maybe no matter what Trump and team do the LEFT will find every way they can to twist and spin the appearance of everything Trump does to his disadvantage.

Rookie mistakes?  Name a single President that has undergone this much fury from the media, the entire tech industry, and the rest.

people making 37 to 91 K and 190 to 413K get no tax break at all.  While others get something.  And if mortgage interest can no longer be deducted then at least for those and probably many others who fall in between they get an effective tax increase.

Coming from Columbia of course.   rolleyes  The country will survive Trump so say Gates and Buffett.  And the example they use for immigrants includes Einstein for God's sake.  He single handedly saved the world from a nuclear Germany.  Using the logic of the LEFT he could also be blamed for the "murder" of tens of thousands at Nagasaki and Hiroshima.  The LEFT now tell us that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were wrong yet now these two libs would then use the same example to promote immigration. 

The bottom line of course is always the same.  Einstein came here legally .  What is it about "illegal" the LEFt will refuse to recognize?  If these people came over and eventually mostly voted Republican we wouldn't even need to fight over this:

https://www.dentaloptimizer.com/dental-cost-calculator/

Dentists mostly don't accept insurance except for minor things like cleanings and a few other things.

It is interesting to see the range of prices.  And the huge differences between states.  Of course like anything else price does not always guarantee quality.  Paying less does not mean one would get less and paying more does not mean it is worth the extra amount.

As Mark John Geragos stated on cable news some years back something to the effect, "being successful in law is all sales".

Medicine is now that way.
