A major fault in psychology is that nearly any philosophy, political viewpoint, or even just a personal belief can get labeled as normal or abnormal.
Apples and oranges?
“We know for sure that the Senate COULD pass a veto-proof bill…”
Absolutely incorrect if you are referring to the current bill. Look up Senate rules concerning veto override.
Not at all unusual for China to give drug dealers the death penalty.
The last I read, McConnell only had 57 votes for the bill, not enough to kill a filibuster let alone enough to override a veto.
This whole thing is nothing but cheap, cheesy political theater. Ms. Pelosi should not have postponed the State of the Union address. Trump should not have cancelled Ms. Pelosi’s flight. As for Trump, he could have easily avoided this kerfuffle by delivering the State of the Union by writing it and having it delivered to Congress, or for that matter deliver it orally on television from a Washington subway. As far as I can tell, he could even deliver it from the oval office or tell Congress that he will be at the Capitol building on mm/dd/yyyy at hh:mm. There are no stipulations in the Constitution about exactly when and how the State of the Union need be delivered (c/Article II, SECTION 3 of the Constitution).
The State Department has employees in foreign countries that are indigenous to those countries that are not getting paid. I would think that that would make them one heckuva security risk.
I wonder if this means that Gillette is going to give women the same (lower) pricing for women’s razors and refills as they have for men’s.
Insisting on a “yes” or “no” answer on an even slightly ambiguous question is a demonstration that the questioner has his own agenda to present after the answer he knows he is going to get is presented. Then there are the trap questions where if you answer “yes” or “no” you are wrong and the questioner can crucify you to his hearts content. I’ve seen a lot of that in congressional hearings.
I would not exactly consider it a positive memory in my later years that when I got invited to the White House I was served junk food.
