My former colleague at The Chronicle, Mark Fiore, is often a hoot!

  1. Of course the one big flaw in his point is that you would be hard pressed to find major support from the lobbyists and Super-pacs going to members of the Freedom Caucus. They are the ones who actually think the Constitution means what it says about enumerated powers for the federal government. 🙂

    1. Freedom Caucus hahahahahahahahahahahaha ——
      Oh you Constitutional scholars at every turn. What hooey, they are to blame for stagnant, outdated, bible thumping, calling themselves “Constitutional Christians”. They wouldn’t know an oxymoron if it bit them on the ass-
      In other news they also want to cut social Security rather than pay back what it is owed from borrowing from the fund over all these years.

      1. You have to admire how the Freedom Caucus got its name, The group debated over a name for their new caucus, eventually settling on the “Freedom Caucus” because, according to founding member Mick Mulvaney, “it was so generic and universally awful that we had no reason to be against it.”
        Anyone know why Tom McClintock resigned from the Caucus?

      2. Hahahaha…Whenever I read the ignorance of those who love to poke fun at others my first reaction is to gag. I’ve spent a lifetime reading and exploring so many interesting things to realize there are many contradictions and conflicts corrected during the passage of time. The more we learn from experience and unbiased observation the more we realize how little we know. We live in an immense universe, so it’s not nice to poke fun at things you really don’t know much about. Those who do can tell…

      3. Bonnie, why is it that when someone posts a meme critical of conservatives it is ‘poke[ing] fun at others’ but you remain silent when your conservative friends like George, Russ, Todd and their anonymous all male review tell fat jokes, excrement jokes, attack people’s employment, denigrate their character, claim they are child molesters and harass their kids?

  2. Well Steve…I have said that it’s not nice to be insulting and poke fun on those sites because it distracts and they should be above that. Sorry you didn’t notice, but that’s the way I think and how we raised our children. I feel badly about the when people treat others badly because they don’t realize it encourages others to behave the same. Many years ago when our oldest daughter was very young, a neighbor’s daughter around the same age loved to viciously pinch her playmates. One day she did it to our daughter in front of me, so I pinched her. She screamed. Then I asked her how she liked what she was doing to others, and told her that she shouldn’t do it anymore. It changed her behavior. Sometimes, even though we’re stubborn and self righteous, even though we’re right…if we apologize to someone they’ll respond likewise….and maybe think about the problem.

    1. Great why don;t you trot over to Todd’s and ask him to apologize to Pelline for hosting fat jokes for the last 5 years?

      Me too-
      (Reuters) – Former U.S. House Speaker (R) Dennis Hastert’s lawyers declined on Saturday to directly address sexual abuse allegations from federal prosecutors, who asserted that he molested at least four boys decades ago when he served as a high school wrestling coach.
      Hastert, 74, faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison when sentenced later this month for his guilty plea in October to a federal charge of illegally structuring large bank withdrawals in small increments to evade currency-reporting rules.
      As part of that plea, the former Republican speaker of the House of Representatives admitted paying $1.7 million in cash to someone he had known for decades as hush money and compensation for unspecified wrongdoing toward that individual.
