RE: Executive Orders
You do realize these are people who work 3 day weeks now. Tues, Wed and Thurs.
Usually one of them is used up voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Tongue
That leaves two for bitching and whining about what other people do, so they don't actually have to get anything done themselves.

BTW, isn't it time to call in Hillary Clinton and talk about Benghazi ?
I mean, they haven't done that for at least a week now. Facepalm

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Yes.

The single most pretentious way to make a point is to insinuate the person you're arguing with doesn't have a grasp on the English language by citing a dictionary definition. That's petty and you know it. I was gonna make some counter arguments, but if you're going to respond like that from the get-go, then I'd just be wasting my time.

Acceptance is a hell of a drug.

Why did you ask a question that can be answered by definitions then?

Because I thought the majority of people have heard the "you call that bad?" expression before... Because I swear I didn't ask "what are those big words you just used, name calling and demonizing?". Whatever, I'm gonna go now.

Well, I took your question literally, because it looked to me like you disagreed that it was name-calling or demonizing.

I didn't say and don't think they were the worst insults or defamation that I've seen. But calling our standing president a dictator is pretty bad.

Christie should be careful. Someone might call him a sleazy fat fuck.

How do you intend to argue that his choice of words is even debatable? Consider

And, no, you don't seem to understand the meaning of 'pretentious'. Drinking Beverage
