  2. Nope just a Philosophy Major and hypocrisy of the pious is wonderful thing.
  3. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the religious right discuss morality as a moving target or a "hey he did it" proposition. Jesus is so proud

    Finland's Entire Government Resigns

    No deficit spending is ok if the president approving it is on the same political plane as you or if you agree with how the money is being spent.
  5. PFF loves the Browns. Guy who grades as a top 10 OL multiple times is swapped for a guy who has never broken the top 10 in DL and that's a win for the Browns...must be common core math. Baker needs all the help he can get but time will tell
  6. Yes it matters because that $80 million is a moving target, look at their 2020 number

    Paying For The Wall

    Going back to my original statement. I was using the verb raid to suggest that the money was obtained by a fraudulent act. I was called out by using the word raid as the poster thought it didn't apply. I believe it is applicable since the decision on the allocation of federal money should include the approval of the Legislative Branch.

    Again, a National Emergency was not declared to circumvent Congressional approval and money wasn't raided from the military coffers for smartphones.

    Stay on point Steve, raiding military money funds for his wall.

    President Obama did not declare a National Emergency to fund Obamacare, ACA, Affordable Care Act...whatever you want to call it. That is the point.

    ...by taking money from the Military. Can't imagine the outrage if a Democrat President had the audacity to raid $3.6 billion of military funding for a pet project.

    I do believe the ACA is flawed but I also believe spending $8 Billion on a symbol is a joke. But that is off topic. The point that was made is Congress approving the ACA is the same as the president circumventing Congressional approval.

    Congress approved the Affordable Care Act but declaring a national emergency and circumventing Congressional approval is basically the same thing.
