Republicans actually had a majority, unlike your liberal bedwetters. Garland didn’t have enough votes to be confirmed, unlike Kavanaugh. And Harry Reid is the one who implemented the nuclear option, not republicans.

Any other lame brain liberal talking points I can clear up for you?

They didn't even allow Garland a hearing.

Repeat: a SCOTUS is someone who should follow the constitution, not a politicatal bias. Got it?

Assuming that someone will not be confirmed because of the senate majority says very clearly where your, ahem, "brain" is.

Are you rally talking about basic human decency after the way liberals (both senators and those in attendance) just acted during that hearing?

The cognitive dissonance is astounding.

THey acted to preserve our democracy. Don't see how you can possibly equate the two. Grassley was completely ignoring the rules of order.

There has been no transparency in providing documents, unlike every other Supreme Court justice - a lifetime appointment that BOTH parties should agree to.

Don't make me laugh with your false equivalencies.

“Well, they knew it when they met with her, not when they set up the meeting,” Giuliani responded. “You told me, did they show an intention to do anything with Russians? All they knew is that a woman with a Russian name wanted to meet with them. They didn’t know she was a representative of the Russian government, and indeed she is not a representative of the Russian government.”

That is, simply, a lie: Donald Trump Jr. himself released emails in which British publicist Rob Goldstone claimed Veselnitskaya represented the Russian government in its effort to “support” Trump.

Unbelievable.

Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-CA) district office received a package Tuesday with “anthrax” written on it

¯ _(ツ)_/ ¯

Wait, so you mean to tell me that a box labeled "anthrax" was cleared for transit and delivery by the postal service or whatever other carrier service? Are you fucking kidding me?

I had the same thought. But stories say "left at" or "delivered," so likely individual dropped package off at door.

In a letter on Tuesday, two Democrats in the House of Representatives argued that under the revised rule, FCC staffers would forward consumer complaints to the targeted company, and advise to file a formal complaint, for $225, if they’re not satisfied with the company’s response.

For the price of one of those, it'll probably be better just to buy a cheap Chromebook and use that for moving around with, then you can transcribe your notes later on.

+1, I would def go for a chromebook - even an 11". Tried the gaming laptop route, lasted a week. All you REALLY need is access to google docs.

Non-Tech Question: What's the best phone service out there for an unlimited data plan?

Tech Question: I have AT&T. If I switch services, how do I get to keep my phone? Do I have to unlock it? How does that work and will I still have full range of use on my phone?

Have you finished paying for your phone? If so, AT&T will unlock your phone so that it can be used by other carriers. https://www.att.com/esupport/article.html#!/smb-wireless/KM1258553

I recently switched to Team Mobile after 10+ years with AT&T. Because...

  • T-Mobile doesn't throttle your speed until you've used 50 gb of data, vs. AT&T at 20gb (one level throttle) or 25gb (2nd level throttle).

  • T-Mobile was $40 a month cheaper for four lines

  • T-Mobile provides FREE Internet and Texting in Europe, vs. AT&T's $10 per day charge (which includes limited internet).

  • T-Mobile customer service varies wildly. I've had some really good experiences, and some really bad ones. But I've spent more time per phone call on AT&T, and have had some really frustrating experiences.

  • I don't see any connection quality issues (after about a month, with some traveling).

  • Initial setup is a bit confusing. They will send you SIM cards, but you have to call them and talk to a live person to activate. Then 0 to 24 hours to actually get the line going - I protested, and they accelerated.

Performance review. Because "the appearance of impropriety" under the current circumstances is now meaningless, I guess.

“The President feels as though Scott Pruitt has done a really good job with deregulating the government, to allow for a thriving economy, that’s important to him, but these things matter to the President as well, and he’s looking into those,” Gidley said. “When we have an announcement, we’ll make it.”

Why do you think this was released by the FBI?

Speaking as someone who would like for Trump and his many accessories to receive their just consequences, I'm not really happy that this evidence has been leaked. I'd prefer if the authorities kept a tight ship and prevented al leaks until the appropriate time, like in the criminal trials.

Leaks and reporting - while juicy and sustaining for us to follow - have only served to protect Trump as they fade in their impact over time, and allow his crew of liars and traitors to devise excuses and gaslighting to diminish them.

For example, imagine if it was held back until trial that Donald Trump Jr and the entire campaign leadership team held the collusion meeting, that Donald Junior knew it was with the Russian government and knew it was about illegal stolen emails. That bombshell landing right before the congress vote to impeach or convict Trump would have had more impact.

Instead that reporting is a year old and Trump's liars have been able to dilute and distort that key proof of treason and collusion. Same with a dozen other key pieces of reporting.

For the authorities, leaking this serves no purpose. They already let it leak enough earlier to say that "shredded materials are being re-assembled". That's more than enough to do the job of scaring Cohen. Leaking more detail was unnecessary and weakens their position.

How do you know it was the authorities who leaked it, and not Cohen's lawyers?

Hours after President Donald Trump’s embattled attorney Michael Cohen suggested he would cooperate with the government, a judge disclosed Monday that federal prosecutors now have more than 1.3 million of Cohen’s files.

But what's the Dem/Rep breakdown of this district?

Republicans hold a 43 percent to 33 percent registration advantage, and Nunes was re-elected in 2016 with better than two-thirds of the vote.

Mr. Trump was apparently referring to Justice Kennedy’s son, Justin. The younger Mr. Kennedy spent more than a decade at Deutsche Bank, eventually rising to become the bank’s global head of real estate capital markets, and he worked closely with Mr. Trump when he was a real estate developer, according to two people with knowledge of his role. During Mr. Kennedy’s tenure, Deutsche Bank became Mr. Trump’s most important lender, dispensing well over $1 billion in loans to him for the renovation and construction of skyscrapers in New York and Chicago at a time other mainstream banks were wary of doing business with him because of his troubled business history.

I get that but I do not read/write Polish well enough to do my own translations. I also travel all over the world due to my job so am rarely in town to go back and forth with the embassy and post office. :) It's much less painful going through a representative since I'm a pretty busy person. I've also been told by various people that it takes one to two years to do it on your own while going through a lawyer usually takes less than a year.

And since I'm on a specific timeline - a lawyer makes the most sense. :)

Hi there,

I'm considering a similar journey. Can you tell me how much it cost? Thanks in advance.

Immigration lawyers in Texas, California, and Washington, D.C., told the Tribune that unaccompanied minors have previously been required to appear alone in court, but the family-separation policy has meant that the children are now younger and more numerous than ever before.

Lindsay Toczylowski, the executive director of Immigrant Defenders Law Center in Los Angeles, said she and her team recently represented an unaccompanied 3-year-old in court, “and the child — in the middle of the hearing — started climbing up on the table.”

“It really highlighted the absurdity of what we’re doing with these kids,” she said.

Our federal system of democratic representation has drifted dangerously out of sync with the geographic distribution, demographic makeup and outsize economic role of America’s urbanized population.

Our politics is cracking up over the density divide. Big cities and their distinctive interests are suffering a density penalty and need more visibility in our scheme of representation.

Got in Fall 2016 for CS with a 3.7, I think 3.5 will be fine if you have all prereqs done + other strong qualities that would make you a great candidate. Good luck I hope this works out for you.
