    The better bosses I've worked for (in both the military and in industry) didn't have that mentality. Tyrants do. Successful businessmen don't.

    It's not a business, but the Executive Branch ought to run like one. Not the entire government, but the Executive, certainly. Organization, leadership, management, schedule, budget, goal-setting, reporting, recruiting........these are all functions of industry and functions of the various Cabinet-level departments.

    I would have more faith that a successful businessman could run all this than someone who's biggest claim to fame is being one of 100 Senators.

    With debt ceiling limit happening sooner than expected (thanks to the budget hole created by the tax scam that they promised would pay for itself) White House pressures Congress for spending deal with increase in debt ceiling.

    Probably because voter suppression tactics worked.

    Did he say that for real? Whenever I think he can't say anything batsh*t crazier he goes and tops himself.

    He has to be trolling.

    As I said, American Indians tend to refer to themselves individually by tribe. I believe she said she was Cherokee.

    That post was pretty clearly an attempted dig at Donald Trump’s math. I wasn’t trying to denigrate anyone else. Pretty sure you know that, but why miss an opportunity.

    I live in a state with a large number of people-who-I-won’t-name-as-to-not-offend. To a person, they’ve referred to themselves with the language I used above. If there’s a memo I’ve missed that justifies labeling me and them as slur merchants, please share.

    EDIT: And would ya look at that? If you’re gonna be this smug, be factually correct please.
