Every election is the most important one.

But the stable genius has a big button that actually works, so all is ok...

I understand that the button only LOOKS big because of his diminutive hands...

I thought that pressing it brought him a coke.

It's a sort of Calvin and Hobbes button. Some days it brings him a Coke. Some days it launches bombs. Other days it turns on the Gorilla Channel.

Remember when Obummer wouldn't stop golfing (or who knows, maybe he was really with his same-sex lover, or smoking dope) when there were reports of a foreign missile attack against America?

Nope, me neither.

The president is a visionary:

“Right now in a number of states the law allows a baby to be born from his or her mother’s womb in the ninth month,” Trump said.

“It is wrong,” Trump continued. “It has to change.”

Going with the principle of charity (I know, he's not familiar with the word), it's a slip of the tongue. Even so, still applying said principle: in what state is abortion legal in the ninth month of pregnancy?

Of course, just going by top google searches you can find plenty of headlines from places like Operation Rescue -- but if you read that, what they do is find doctors who are breaking the law and conflating that with "abortionists all kill babies even into the ninth month!"

If you believe someone, Jen Gunther is a good person to believe: https://drjengunter.wordpress.com/2016/10/20/donald-trump-confuses-birth-with-abortion-and-no-there-are-no-ninth-month-abortions/

Looks like even Indiana Repubs are losing faith in Trump: https://www.journalgazette.net/news/local/local-politics/20180123/banks-gets-earful-during-town-hall-meeting

(Side note: the whole "we gave money to companies so workers will benefit" is a canard. This hinges on companies voluntarily doing something one time. Without a wage/trade/compensation agreement in writing, or regulation, this is basically the hope of the laird of the manor offering you his scraps. There's no predictive power in it, no job security, no assurances for your children.)

Like when my employer gives me an annual bonus every year, but no raise.

BTW, link didn't work for me.

Thanks, Bruce. "Why don't you take it up [with Trump]" indeed.
