I am often amused with the display of the "Union Saunter" as I wait for the crews to switch ends of the train. I think I have see glaciers move faster.

Re: Gringos Taqueria - Coles Street

Tried Gringos for the first time on Saturday evening. We go there are around 6:30pm. The outside area was pretty full, and so was the dinning room. I was prepared for a wait, but to my surprise I was seated right away. Ordered drinks pretty quickly, and some chips w/ salsa and guacamole for the table. Chips came quickly, and were decent. Drink were okay. Not the best margarita I have ever had, but I have had far worse. We ordered the Al Pastor, Holy Mole, and Pig Out tacos. I like the Al Pastor and Pig Out the best.

Overall it was a good experience except for the service. I know the service in DTJC can leave one wishing for more; especially given our proximity to NYC, but this was one of the worst experiences yet. Our waitress seemed to be to busy chatting with her friends behind the bar than to server her tables.

Now we have the full transcript of Trump's phone calls with Mexican President Nieto and Australian Prime Minister Turnbull.

Trump admits he is in a tough spot, politically, with all those chants of making Mexico pay for his border wall. He sounds like a child asking Mexican President Nieto not to say that "Mexico will not pay for the wall".

When Trump has Prime Minister Turnbull on the phone, Trump doesn't seem to understand the details of this agreement between the US and Australia; even after Prime Minister Turnbull tries to explain it several times. All he can think about is himself and how he will look to his supporters.

I guess, at the end of the day, how Trump looks to his supporters is all he cares about. Then again, it is par for the course for politicians to only care about their base. I guess Trump is just like the rest of the politicians in the swamp after all.

After giving Obama so much shite for golfing and vacations, and after recommending in his his 2004 book Trump: Think Like a Billionaire, "Don't take vacations. What's the point? If you’re not enjoying your work, you’re in the wrong job.", the AP is reporting that Trump is getting ready to take a 17 day vacation at his private golf club in Jersey. Not to mention his January interview with the Times of London where he said "Who wants to leave the White House to go to some other place and be away on a vacation? The White House is very special, there’s so much work to be done, I’m not gonna be leaving much — I mean a lot of work to be done — I’m gonna be in there working, doing what I’m supposed to be doing — but who wants to leave the White House?"

I don't blame the guy for wanting to take a break, but does he have to be so hypocritical? It's all just fuel for Reddit anyway.

I think I have shown that cost is not the main issue here, despite what Trump said in his tweets. The estimated cost to provide the hormones and surgery is peanuts when put into the context of the overall military budget.

It is one of the main parts of a recruiter's job to weed out people that would be a burden for the military. The last thing they want to do is spend hundreds of thousands of dollars training someone, only for them to quit or be discharged.

Regarding your comments about there being no room for a reasonable middle ground; given the current political climate I tend to lean towards agreement with your point. There is also a larger part of me that still hopes that we can get back to a point of reasonable compromise. Otherwise, I think the road we are on now leads us to not getting anything bipartisan done.

It can be a barrier to enlistment, but it's usually taken on a case by case basis. There are plenty of people in the military on daily meds. They just need to be prescribed by a military doctor.

I think you may have missed the part where I said "Being accepted by the military is not a civil right, but not being discriminated against based on your sexual orientation is." I was referring to ones civil rights in general, not in terms of acceptance into the military, but I can see how my statement could be misconstrued.

At least we can agree that is not a violation of anyone's civil rights to not give someone a free sex change operation. I just think it's a dick move to ban them from serving in general. Especially since they willingly signed up to serve. Would you be okay with allowing transgendered people to serve if the government didn't offer them surgery?

The army certainly can discriminate against you based on your sexual orientation. Why do you think gays were officially banned from the military up through the end of Obama's term?

That was the policy previously, but that has changed and is no longer the case. The policy was updated to reflect the current demographics of people wanting to serve their country. Rightly so, as sexual orientation as no bearing on your ability to fight.

JCMan8 wrote:
Second, trans people are being rejected on the basis of gender dysphoria, an official mental illness, and not a sexual orientation.

Not according to Trump's statement. According to Trump, "the military needs to be focused on overwhelming and decisive victory and can not be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail." No mention of gender dysphoria there. I also find it a little funny that it's okay for Uncle Sam to spend 84 million on erectile dysfunction medication for current and former service members, but the estimated 8.4 million is too much and needs to be cut. Why not also make cuts to that program if the military is that strapped for cash. Oh wait...this is a political move and has nothing to do with saving any money or mental health.

Third, the sex change procedures were free in the sense that the taxpayer was paying for them, not the person who wanted the procedure.

This is true, but I would argue the the service member is paying the country back through their service.

And I don't share the same definition of "progress" as you. For example, I don't think taxpayer funded sex changes (Obama ordered for all trans soldiers) is progress.

In fact, I think it is bizarre and regressive that trans people could have signed up for the army and received a free sex change. Happy Obama's nuttery was rolled back.


Correct. Being accepted by the military is not a civil right, but not being discriminated against based on your sexual orientation is. I'm guessing you haven't served in the military if you think a sex change operation is free. Yes the individual service member would work with their chain of command and doctors to formulate a plan that works best for the military and the service member, and that may involve a sex change operation, but the service member is hardly getting that free of charge.

I doubt many people would willingly put their lives on the line for a "free" operation. People join the military because of a sense of duty to serve and protect their country. The mission always comes first, even for someone that is trans.

Besides, the military just said they are going keep letting trans people serve with honor and respect until there are new directives issued. Who would have thought tweeting something doesn't count?

Another huuuuuge win! 10 billion dollar factory to be built, great manufacturing jobs!
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2 ... ngs-foxconn-to-wisconsin/


Let's just take a closer look at this "huuuuuge win!" shall we. Wisconsin is giving Foxcon tax breaks to the tune of 3 billion dollars to create "at least 3,000 jobs". That means that the US Govt. just paid a private company $1 million per job that pays $54,000 per year. But you ask, what about the 13,000 jobs that Foxcon says it will eventually have? Okay, fair point. We just reduced the investment to a little under $231,000 per job. We're getting there. Now let's figure in the state's estimate of indirect jobs that would be created, and add another 22,000 jobs, Add all the jobs up and we get to ~$86,000 the state of Wisconsin has paid a private company to build a factory that pays people $54,000 a year. This is all if Foxcon isn't blowing smoke up everyone's ass.

As Bloomberg points out, all of these promises made by Foxcon need to be viewed with a healthy does of skepticism. Not only is their 10 billion of promised investment in Wisconsin wildly out of proportion with their historical pace of capital investment, but Foxcon has also pledged 30 billion in other cities around the world in the last year, despite the fact that it is more money than the company has spent in the last 23 years.

Looks like the only winner here is the CEO of Foxcon.

While we are rolling back civil rights, why not go all the way back to when women couldn't vote and were considered property of their husbands? Let's all go back to the time when the only thing that mattered was you were white and male. Everyone else can go pound sand.

Okay, just so I understand you, you think people with medical/psychiatric issues are pathetic? Or, are the people that want to defend minorities in this country from the oppressive backwards thinking politicians that want to role back civil rights the ones that are pathetic?

Never mind the fact that the Trump administration did this for pure political gains. When asked about the decision, a Trump administration official said "This forces Democrats in Rust Belt states like Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin to take complete ownership of this issue. How will blue collar voters in these states respond when senators up for re-election in 2018 like Debbie Stabenow are forced to make their opposition to this a key plank of their campaigns?"

If someone can pass the "tough for a good reason" exams to get into the military, what would being transgendered have to do with it? Is being gay just a psychiatric issue as well?

What does being transgendered have to do with being able to server in the military? As Democratic Rep.

Do you really want to find the source of the DNC email leaks? Start with those creeps. They legally accessed the HoR Network and democrat email via her office computer for years. Well before she was fired last summer as the DNC chair.

The HRC campaign was crashing and burning because of those leaks. HRC stonewalled FBI forensics not permitting access to their "hacked" campaign computers and Deb WS is doing the same thing to FBI and Capital Police, stonewalling their criminal investigation, by not permitting access to government owned hardware.

Where does it all lead? Today, the ringleader brother was arrested by the FBI trying to flee the country back to where??? Pakistan... SuperMax or witness protection?

Nice ad hominem. Try actually reading it next time. If you had, you'd see that the source was the NYT itself.

Here, this time I will quote the beginning and make it easy for you, though the links to the NYT are in the article itself:

"Last year, after President-elect Trump picked Jeff Sessions to be attorney general, The New York Times editorial page called the Alabama senator “radical” and “extreme” and tarred him as an unrepentant racist and xenophobe.

Last week, after Trump criticized Sessions and others, the same editorial page suddenly discovered a new fondness for Sessions. The Times now insisted that Trump had impugned his “integrity” and that of others “who have spent their careers respecting and protecting” the law."


A few points. Yes, I did read your articles, and I was referring to the op/ed page of the NYT the Post was citing. My comment was meant to be a criticism of your choice of references. Why cite something that is citing something else, when you can use the original? Unless you don't think the original source has merit, and you want to agree with someone else's interpretation. But hey, you do you.

I also said the proving liberal hypocrisy is like shooting fish in a barrel. You don't even have to prove it sometimes, as they will do it themselves. Do I wish the liberal's would think before they open their mouth? Of course I do, and I willing to bet that the same goes for conservatives and some sections of the right.

Wow...using the NY post as a source is a bit a of a stretch. Nothing like citing the opinion section either. Proving liberal hypocrisy is like shooting fish in a barrel, I think you could have found a better source than the post.

Besides, if you want to see someone with no principles and someone you can't trust, look no further than the oval office.
