And I agree. That is what I was saying, people ARE going to look at the phones, just place it in a place the cops can't see. Which means "eyes completely off the road and that translates to... MORE ACCIDENTS! SMH!
Sad, but these over the top rash decisions happen every where. After the death of Nicole Brown Simpson and the infamous OJ trial, Domestic Violence laws were so over the top zero tolerance back then. If (usually) a woman calls, you just got arrested, that’s it, once the call was made and the cops showed up, you are leaving in cuffs, if you were a first time offender with priors, it was one year mandatory and you also had to go to counseling for a year mandatory and you had to pay $500-1,000 to the women’s victims DV prevention charity or something like that. It was really bad at the time as the phone calls were ringing off the hook, but now it’s all calm and a lot of that over reactionary protocols change. I hope this one does as well, but as of right now I feel a lot of people will be paying a lot of money. Think about it, the country needs money, every bit helps.

So if I need to use Google maps and my phone in the phone holder eye level next to my rear view mirror, I’ll get busted? So how can I use it or find my way? Pull over and memorize the route before driving? Seems like more people are going to place their phones on their laps or next to them on the passenger seat and drive with their heads down and thus creating a much bigger problem with accidents actually going up instead of down. The iPhone will always find a way. Another knee jerk reactionary law.....

Which are the low-class movies, though?
Piano was one of them, but as you said, it’s subjective, the same goes for the English Patient, for me, they’re low class, but that’s just my subjective opinion and it’s ok, if you like that kind of thing. My wife loves musicals, I don’t. I usually love horror, she doesn’t but occasionally we find a film that we both can come together and watch.
What's your favorite film this year?
The Joker and the Irishman
-3 ( +0 / -3 )
Now we have a lot of low class movies and snobbish limousine liberal actors constantly lecturing us about morality while Hollywood itself is rife with sex abuse, power abuse, pedophilia and more.
There's so many recent films that could be described as masterpieces with great actors - Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Roma, BlackKKlansman, Isle of Dogs etc. I guess it's all subjective.
Love Keitel from Mean Streets to Bad Lieutenant to The Piano. Always with the intense performances of very flawed characters.
The Piano? Well, as you said, subjective....

Donny's feelings were hurt
Liberals keep saying that, I guess it makes them feel good. So can anyone prove beyond a shadow of a doubt his feelings were hurt? Who here has spoken to the President to verify and confirm this?
because Boris joined in making fun of him, Donny's best friend doing that to him must be intolerable!!!!
Trump’s been through a lot worse.

Of course Trump is the biggest threat to NATO!
That just made no sense whatsoever.
*He whimpered and moaned in 2016 that NATO was 'unnecessary' and 'outdated'. Of course a traitor for Russia would say and promote that stupid notion, amiright?*
Interesting, liberals are losing on the Russia debacle, don’t have that creative edge anymore to come up with a new narrative instead of Russia, Russia, Russia and all the while libs get laughed out of the room. NATO needs us, without us, they’re pretty much dead in the water.

"Turley argued there was no proof that President Donald Trump broke a specific law related to the Ukraine scandal and therefore should not be impeached. But in 1998, Turley made the opposite case, telling Congress during former President Bill Clinton's impeachment hearings that Clinton's actions didn't need to violate any laws in order to be impeachable conduct. "While there's a high bar for what constitutes grounds for impeachment, an offense does not have to be indictable," he wrote in a 2014 op-ed for The Washington Post.
Yes, he also said this:
"If you make a high crime and misdemeanor out of going to the courts, it is an abuse of power. It's your abuse of power You're doing precisely what you are accusing the President of doing. We have a third branch that deals with conflicts of the other two branches.
This Newtonian orbit that the three branches exist in is a delicate one but it is designed to prevent this type of concentration. There is two trends going on which should be of equal concern to all members of Congress. One is that we have had the radical expansion of presidential powers under both President Bush and President Obama. We have what many once called an imperial presidency model of largely unchecked authority. And with that trend we also have the continued rise of this fourth branch. We have agencies that are quite large that issue regulations. The Supreme Court said recently that agencies could actually define their own or interpret their own jurisdiction. (House hearing, December 3, 2013
What I love about Turley, he doesn’t attack the people he doesn’t like or agrees with, he just prevents the facts without the drop of emotion attached to it.

and yet the US deficit continues to grow at a faster pace than when Obama was president. Maybe time to send US forces home from the EU and the EU members can spend that money on their own defence instead
So when you factor in building the wall, factoring in taking care of our veterans, factoring in the rebuilding of our military and upgrading it, it does make all sense now.

*She apologized for it because it was out of order, bringing the kid's name into it.*
That’s the only thing that matters, she knew she was wrong and I’m happy she did and good on her.
-3 ( +2 / -5 )
*No it didn't. She used an analogy as I have shown you.*
Then if it is true and it was as you say an analogy then there would be no need or reason to apologize, in doing so, you are admitting guilt and an error. I certainly would not have, but she did because she knew it was insulting and “she apologized” for it and I’m glad she did, that’s the ONLY that matters, because she knew she was way out of line and she did the right thing.

This did not happen.
Yes, it did, that’s why that idiot apologized, she knew she was wrong and stepped over the line.
Professor Pamela Harlan — she a professor who is testifying and democratic witness — she said that president trump could name his son Barron but could not make him a baron. She was referring to the fact she thinks President Trump at times can act like a king because he's abusing power but she was also making a joke about the fact that the President’s 13 year old son is named baron and Barron, of course, is a noble title and she was basically making the case that he cannot be made into nobility and he won’t inherit essentially the presidency.
Please stop pushing a blatant falsehood.
Well, Killed that theory.
But Just in case....
I was just happy the woman apologized for the error of her misguided ways.

Well even you said Trump acted improperly and showed poor judgement.
Yes, but it doesn’t mean, it’s an impeachable offense and these lame partisan professors know it.
It's not all that shocking that an investigation would happen under those circumstances, is it? Obviously you thought he did something wrong.
Yes, investigate and now that all the evidence shows he made a bad judgment, he’s made aware of that, let it go and move forward.
You might have the numbers to win, but it doesn't mean you're on the right side of the law or history.
Doesn’t mean that we’re on the wrong side either
You just see an opportunity to get away with it.

But to confirm, you agree that Trump put himself before country, right?
Precisely what the idiot Democrats are doing right now as Turley explained.
You can argue like a paid lawyer to get your guy off, but it doesn't mean you think he's innocent.
What was that Holder said again about being Obama’s wingman?
And may I ask where your standards of proof go when you are talking about things like birtherism, Seth Rich, deep state, MSM collision, voter fraud, and spying on Trump? I believe you said accusations stand until disproven in those cases.
Interesting, liberals talk about collusion, obstruction, extortion and bribery of something that isn’t impeachable, but spying on Trump and gathering information from a foreign spy to derail Trump’s Presidential run is somehow now legitimate, but making a phone call to a Ukrainian leader to find out information about his potential rival and son who gets 50k with zero experience is an impeachable crime...Based on that inquiry he needs to be executed and in the worst possible way.

Jonathan Turley, a George Washington University law professor, urged House lawmakers to look to history before they try to impeach President Donald Trump. Oh my...

Although, President Trump’s remark was not very diplomatic, it is clear that Trudeau was being two-faced...
Does anyone really care what this Black face PM said? Trudeau like his father is a joke, but I’m not Canadian, they can nominate any far left liberal socialist if they want, but I agree, Trump May not have been exactly diplomatic at times, he is direct and Trudeau and these European leaders aren’t. Just pay up and pay your fair share NATO members, I’m out of here. Trump still gets the Last victory lap.

Bribery and extortion are crimes. Bribery specifically mentioned as an impeachable offense. :D
Good luck trying to prove it and get the Republicans to jump on board. Lol
This argument assumes Republicans are honest. And clearly they are not.
Wait, look at the Dems, especially the House Democrats where lying is Picasso art form.
The first two Republican congressmen to endorse Trump have been charged with corruption, the rest are just scared Donny will tweet mean things. Cowards.
In the same way House Democrats (especially the Democrats that won in swing States where Trump won big.) have a gun pointed to their heads if they don’t vote for this farce.
I'm not making any assumptions.
Ok, then what proof do you have? Schiff doesn’t have it, but you do I assume?
It is a fact that Giuliani is not a government employee. He is Trump's attorney. And it is also a fact they exchanged phone calls. That shouldn't have happened.
If you disagree, I'd love to hear why.
Because you need to relax, this will be over soon and Trump and the Dems can be on their merrily way and Trump can as well.

and yet the deficit has grown to over $22trillion which is estimated to be about $5trillion over his first term at that rate its growing faster than when Obama was in office, main point is Obama did it when the US economy was in tatters after the 2008 GFC, Trumps doing it while the US economy is strong.
And during Obama’s reign consumer shopping, trade,international business investments and lowered corporate tax rate didn’t exist now that all that has changed in the economy remains on steroids, this looks like a very bountiful Christmas and the retail stores look extremely excited about the increase sales that will happen, which didn’t happen under the previous administration where we had a very slow and sluggish economy.

More than most Democrats to see that they’re heading for a cliff, I figured that and I’m not even a paramedic.
You said that resisting arrest is good and that perjury isn't a crime.
OK so how you going to prove that he perjured himself? Liberals stop talking please show us some proof. Maybe liberals on JT know something that Schiff doesn’t. Lol

That would be like saying stop pretending to be a conservative. ROFL! Nice try though.

No, no it it's the same idea. You don't get credit for righting your wrong. You still broke the law.
Then if the WERE true as in the case with Nixon where there WAS an actual crime, a break-in and a coverup you would have Republicans joining in a bipartisan effort to impeach him, you don’t have anything even remotely close to that. Impeachment is like catnip to the Democrats, they just can’t get enough, but when that high is over then they realize it was just temporary.
I don't have to. Giuliani is Trump's personal lawyer.
Ok, so you can make your own assumptions, never stopped liberals before. Waste your time and go ahead or go on Twitter and send him a tweet, I’m sure he’ll respond.

2) Trump is saying (again) the Ukraine probe is a witch hunt.
If so, he could end the witch hunt right now if he wanted to - he could direct Pence, Pompeo, Mulvaney, Perry, and Giuliani to testify; either now or once the Senate trial begins.
You have to be the most naive on the planet to think of Trump did that Schiff would say, I am satisfied and now I’ll leave this all alone. Trump would be stupid to even play Schiff’s game. He should fight him and the weaselly house Democrats with every fiber of his being.
They could all testify that Trump knew nothing of the shakedown and was totally innocent - case closed.
No because Schiff would find something else to throw around the Presidents ankle.
He could also authorize release of State Dept documents that could prove his story. But he's prevented these officials from testifying and the release of State Dept documents...
Good on him.
Why won't he allow these folks to testify or the release of documents if they could prove his innocence?
We'll be waiting....
Keep waiting as public support for this farce is dwindling and Independents are not up for this as well increasingly. Once Trump is in his second term and Schiff is sucking his thumb and curling up with his pillow the bigger question is, would the Dems be so stupid and try to impeach this President again? ......They actually probably would.
