Yeah, somehow this always seemed more right for the Oval office to me.(by right I mean as opposed to wrong, and not as in right wing)

IMHO this was the best ever Oval Office carpet but sadly it was destroyed in a fire soon after…

I get it.

Disclaimer: I have not seen the film, I just wanted to make the joke.

The media has not reported that the National Debt in my first month went down by $12 billion vs a $200 billion increase in Obama first mo.

@realDonaldTrump I don’t know what’s scarier, that you don’t understand why this tweet is stupid or that your supporters won’t.

@realDonaldTrump You inherited a government run by a competent person. Obama didn’t. You inherited a budget that was ALREADY shrinking.

This happens every time and nobody ever realizes how it works.

I think the wisest thing to do would be to just ignore anything related to all this business until it’s officially announced. Who cares what anyone tweets or what rumors are out there? It’s all meaningless until something real happens.

Yep. We can speculate until the cows come home but none of the rumors or hearsay mean anything without official word.

Hoo-boy.

http://theslot.jezebel.com/missouri-rep-wants-the-state-museum-to-house-a-permanen-1792682819

Mike Moon, a Republican state representative in Missouri, recently introduced House Bill 1014 which, according to the bill’s description, “requires the Missouri State Museum to include a display on the history of abortion.” In addition to requiring the state museum to display a surely one-sided history of abortion, the bill, which he calls the “Never Again Act,” also requires that curators at the museum install the imaginary exhibition “near the existing exhibit on the history of slavery.”

In a press release sent to constituents, Moon said that the exhibition, as he envisions it, “would display tools used and the effects those same tools have on the aborted victims.” Items for Moon’s (again imaginary) exhibition would be drawn from the Grantham Collection’s Abortion Instruments and Photographic Archive. While that might sound very official and legitimate—save its web domain abortioninstruments.com—the Grantham Collection is unsurprisingly an anti-abortion site that collects and dubiously labels medical instruments supposedly used in abortion procedures as well as videos showing abortions.

Though Grantham claims on its site to be a non-partisan view into “what the abortion industry does not want you and the world to see,” it is very clearly partisan. The group was referenced by Carly Fiorina during a 2015 Republican primary debate, during which she claimed to have watched “a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking.” Fiorina attributed that video to David Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress. Though the video was produced by CMP, it used video taken from the Grantham Collection’s partner, the Center for Bioethical Reform. On their website, the Grantham Collection describes the Center for Bioethical Reform as a “lifetime partner in graphically awakening the consciousness of all people,” adding that, “their tireless work on the behalf of the pre-born is truly inspiring.” Truly.

Missing from the Grantham Collection, and surely from Moon’s imaginary museum exhibition, are actual women, either women who have been saved by the procedure or whose health was preserved through its legalization. But hey, this isn’t actually about women. It’s about civil rights or, maybe, according to Moon, slavery and the Holocaust. “The number of lives lost by abortion is more than we lost during slavery and during the Holocaust,” he said in the press release sent from his office. “We need to start looking at abortion in the same light as we do both of those tragic events.”

Pathetic.

I can’t imagine why the vendor should be castigated for erring on the side of being nice.

Okay I’m being a hypocrite, but just so it’s clear where I stand: Exactly. That’s all it comes down to.

Do I hate that they changed the Fire Temple music in Ocarina of Time? I do. But I also understand why and that’s perfectly fine.

In my mind, the thought process should go: “Oh, they removed X because they didn’t want to take the chance of offending anybody. Okay. Now what’s for dinner?” It requires no more discussion than that.

I don’t like bringing outside forum drama in here, but if you want the history of that site, and why I don’t trust it, shoot me a PM, and I’ll show you what I know.

I must know.
