Re: “An open line for Sunday

"why I oppose the anti-fas as much as I do the Nazis".

I have no love for the anti-fas folks, but Nazis are just evil. No equivalence there.

Re: “Janet Jackson at Verizon Arena: A Review

I didn't see Janet. So, I'm just telling you from my experience. Most of the performers at Verizon are performing with extra prerecorded tracks. I can't say what happened during Janet's performance, but I will say prerecorded tracks is a standard with big acts. Especially in large arenas. I would bet money some of her vocals were prerecorded. No offense to Janet. She's a good singer.

Re: “Bill Clinton to speak at Central High 60th anniversary ceremony on Sept. 25

He doesn't have to procure anybody. He's a celebrity. Haven't you heard?
Celebrities can just go up and grab them by the pussy.

Re: “No, Obamacare hasn't produced huge increases in everyone's health insurance

"UnitedHealth Group CEO Stephen Hemsley made $17.8 million in total compensation in 2016 for running the nation's largest health insurance company. Hemsley's compensation grew by 22.4% over 2015, according to a document filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday."

The ACA has been good to Hemsley!

Re: “Republicans bring Jeanine Piro to town

This is the former judge that said on fox news
"If the devil called me and said he wanted to set up a meeting to give me opposition research on my opponent I'd be on the first trolley to hell to get it"

Re: “Supreme Court chides Court of Appeals again

If the justices don't like their pay, they can quit. Nobody is keeping them from leaving. I'm sure there will be others eager to work for that kind of money.
