First game tonight. Cant wait. GO WILD! WOOOOOOOO!!!
Yes. Exactly Romney. He's the primary Senator whose base loves him more than they love Trump.
He's not going to run for President again, so he doesn't have to worry about a primary, but he's also got the prominence that came with being party leader, in fact he was the last leader the elites in the Republican Party weren't embarrassed by. This will be useful in this moment, and in the future. He's a somewhat slimy businessman, but he's not crooked.
Here's my Littlefinger sketch for Romney: he orchestrates a Senate uprising. Republican congresscritters make sheep look daring and independent, so the house override is a fait accompli. In so doing, he makes the Senate a much more prominent institution, and raises the power of the institution just as he sets himself up to be prominent in the Conservative party that is left when the Republican Party dissolves (and if the Senate rises up like this, I don't see a way the Republican Party lasts until 2020). I used to think that the Bernie wing leaves the Dems...but if Mittens is the one orchestrating it I think it is more likely that the more classically Liberal Dems join Romney and leave the Democratic Party to the more Socialist/classically Progressive wing (like AOC and Bernie).
In the America of 2020 forward, when the power lies in Congress rather than in the Executive, this leaves Mitt as possibly the most powerful man in the country for 15-20 years. And I don't think he would have made a good president, but I think he's both amoral enough, intelligent enough, and compassionate enough to be quite well-suited to the role of power broker.
And I swear that if something like this comes to pass, I will tell my Mormon friends that their stupid White Horse prophecy had something to it.
This is only roughly the 10000th post saying when a hypothetical event comes to pass (with some actually occurring) it will destroy the Republican party.
Its not happening folks. Republican voters always come home. The only event in the last 10 years which arguably may have split the party, the Tea party uprising, was the equivalent to changing out the curtains in the home.
Why won't this happen? Because the system, as presently designed, does not allow for more then 2 viable parties. Its why a primary remains the only way to install these offshoots of each party.

Poster is now PMing hate speech so folks are aware. Hopefully will get banned soon. Just report it.
I was born in 97 so I have no memory of that game. I like the Falcons and always have. My dad, lifelong Vikings fan, hates them almost as much as the Packers/Bears.
Vikings fans in a nutshell. "They beat us in the playoffs when we thought we'd win, so we hate them now."
Besides the Atlanta Falcons, please see the New York Giants, New Orleans Saints, and the Philadelphia Eagles.
*Downvote away you horny bastards, I live up here and see you all doing it. Oh its true, IT'S DAMN TRUE.
Hey Americans. Seriously, with healthcare costs how dues anyone contemplate this potentially hugely expensive stuff?
His obesity is probably going to become very expensive down the road as well....
As the father of an autistic child I say FUCK YOU to that. Even if vaccinations could cause autism (which they don't) you're saying dead baby is better than autistic, so again FUCK YOU!
Edit: An excellent point brought up by u/Christabel1991 below so I think I should clarify. I'm not saying this specifically to u/cidiusgix , but to people with the mindset that having autism is worse than a terminal disease easily preventable by an available vaccine.
THANK YOU! Makes my blood fucking boil when people suggest it would have been better to not get our daughter vaccinated as she may not have gotten Autism. So possible death is a better alternative given your very wrong understanding of the research? Go fuck yourself.
Are we sure she's not a suspect?
Barron County Sherriff had ruled out early in the investigation that she was an accomplice to this, but I guess we'll know more very soon.
My question now is the same as when she first went missing:
Did she have a role in the murder of her parents?
Weren't there reports that she had been in contact online with an older male?
I don't understand this weird obsession with making this girl an accomplice in her parents murder. We don't have enough evidence for that theory to hold much merit. Everybody likes to think of themselves as a detective these days.
I sort of get it. The world can be an evil place, and sometimes when awful things happen it helps to believe it happened for a reason... Like a daughter assisted in her parents murder to run away instead of a stranger doing it and abducting her.
Thay said, the sheriff had ruled that out early in the process.
