(There's plenty to criticize the Rs about, but on the topic of diversity of opinions, they definitely come way ahead of the Ds).
So I guess the R's are not the party of Trump now?

Didn't know there was a D and R side on the SCOTUS.
There isn't. There is only the D side and everyone else.

he does look pretty suspicious with that mustache.
BTW I know of a former DDFer that was held for a couple hours by the CBP and they looked through everything on his phone. He had previously been to a few middle eastern countries, it could be that was the trigger.

Quote
One day Thomas Edison came home and gave a paper to his mother. He told her, "My teacher gave this paper to me and told me to only give it to my mother."

His mother's eyes were tearful as she read the letter out loud to her child: Your son is a genius. This school is too small for him and doesn't have enough good teachers for training him. Please teach him yourself.

After many, many years, after Edison's mother died and he was now one of the greatest inventors of the century, one day he was looking through old family things. Suddenly he saw a folded paper in the corner of a drawer in a desk. He took it and opened it up.

On the paper was written: Your son is addled [mentally ill]. We won't let him come to school any more.

Edison cried for hours and then he wrote in his diary: "Thomas Alva Edison was an addled child that, by a hero mother, became the genius of the century."

Never Give up. Be confident. Remember -  (be it life, sports, career or any competition) - any battle is won twice - FIRST IN YOUR HEAD.......

"One of the issues that has come up over the course of the partnership: Citigroup wants its customers to be able to transfer American miles to its Prestige credit card, according to people familiar with the matter. American hasn’t historically allowed for that."

Huh, maybe the opposite Citi>AA.

What not to say at a border crossing:


“Please don’t look at the one called ‘Secret ISIS Confession,’” I said.

For all those touting a "two-state solution" just realize what kind of a democratic state it might be.
