    This right here impressed me. He also worked with the DA in Harris county to decriminalize marijuana possession. The DA Kim Ogg ran on decriminilizing marijuana and won. The voters spoke and Art did little to obstruct that. I cant find the youtube video with him and Ogg atm but I appreciate that he didnt fight it like a lot of polie chiefs would. Only thing that rubbed me the wrong way was his excuse for why it was slightly delayed. I dont remember it exactly but it was a turrible excuse. Only a minor complaint though. I have a lot of faith in his integrity as a top police official. He wont prosecute cops as much as I would like but I try to be reasonable with my expectations for cops.

    Happy to discuss policies you don't like.

    I have been pretty clear about how disappointed I am in spending

    Is "4D checkers" a thing? Just curious.

    Posted this in another thread but also relevant here.

    Feds raised a record tax receipt October, despite the huge tax cut to corporations.



    THEY STILL RAN A $100B DEFICIT

    IT'S THE SPENDING, PEOPLE. It has to stop.

    We're running deficits because we can't stop increasing spending.

    It's not complicated. Tax cuts don't cause deficits. Spending does. Letting people and companies keep the money they earn is economic liberty, and is good for growth.

    Yet here we are. Shame on Trump and the GOP for allowing it when they have the large majority.

    Corporation income tax receipts, however, were significantly higher this October than they were in October 2017. This year, the Treasury collected $8,000,000,000 in corporation income taxes in October. Last year, it collected $3,823,060,000 (in constant October 2018 dollars).

    So a guy stood up in a play about a jewish family during intermission and yell "heil hitler!" he then followed it up with "hell..." something else

    i'll let you guess what he followed it up with and who he follows as a leader

    it's weird how every hate group and racist seems to always be in the corner of this guy you just guessed

    To be fair, he often stood on stage with African-Americans prior to putting an R beside his name, and I think he has taken nearly every opportunity since. There aren't many willing co participants.

    So which is it we want, press that are lapdogs or press that get into the faces of Press Secretary's and Presidents.
    Can't have both

    I would argue Huckabee - Sanders is terrible at her job and Trump is a pathological liar.
    But, Acosta is the boogie man?

    Tell me, how many here knew of Jim Acosta before Trump ?
    ....................

    One last thing, Trump called on Acosta. Acosta doesn't just get to stand up and speak.
    Just like the Telemundo reporter Trump targeted during the primaries
    I'm old enough to remember Major Garrett being called a racist and an ***hole for asking Obama far more respectful questions than Acosta asks. So the answer to your question seems to vary with the letter that appears alongside the President's name.

    I do agree with you that it's moronic for Sanders or Trump to call on Acosta.

    The question:
    GARRETT: Thank you, Mr. President. As you well know, there are four Americans in Iran — three held on trumped-up charges and according to your administration and one whereabouts unknown. Can you tell the country, sir, why you are content with all the fanfare around this deal to leave the conscious of this nation, the strength of this nation unaccounted for in relation to these four Americans?

    But no one of consequence. No one of the Administration ? Let alone the President himself

    You quote a comedian and a talking head who's jobs are to be provocative and say things to attract viewers because they that get clicks by kicking up dust
    Robert Gates who I think might have been the Press Secretary in this area -- his quotes ?
    apples and watermelons ?

    You know the difference
    .............

    I'm old enough to remember Sam Donaldson ( and predecessors that taught him the ropes) who on a scale of attention grabbing asshole makes Acosta and Garret appear to be snot noses.
    But he got answers and made people think by asking uncomforatable questions and being persistant.
    Wow, that word again

    This is fake news.

    The man was trying to criticize Trump.

    And has since apologized.

    By the way, a couple vocal anti-semites just got elected to Congress and have Ds next to their name.

    “Some audience members at a performance of “Fiddler on the Roof” in Baltimore were sent scrambling out of their seats Wednesday when a theatergoer shouted “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump” and made the Nazi salute during intermission, according to police.

    Anthony Derlunas, 58, allegedly told police he was motivated by his hatred of President Trump”

    Photo 1 is what we usually see. It leads lots of people to come to the conclusion that most of the U.S. is conservative. And to make lots of assumptions about how those blue areas are somehow stealing elections from all that red.

    Photo 2 is a cartogram of the same information, with each square representing both an individual district and an approximately equal population. It gives a MUCH more accurate reading of the state of things.

    The point is: land mass doesn't vote. People do.

    this reminds me of a new boss I once had that was promoted beyond his/her skill set yet felt the need to leave the impression they had a level of authority/ competence
    Instead of you know, asking questions
    Everyone has had this boss :


    Trump:
    "You gotta take care of the floors. You know the floors of the forest, very important...

    I was with the President of Finland... he called it a forest nation and they spent

    a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things

    and they don't have any problem."
