So I am pretty sure I had a post in here that was deleted.   Yes it was in response to a question about the timing for the pardon.

Your post was deleted most likely because it was antagonistic to another poster and we are trying to keep things civil here.

And the post 4 posts up is civil?  Just trying to understand where the line is.

More shockingly unsurprising things:

Texas reps are against federal aid until they directly need it:

Will we even take basic steps to even try to weather storms like Harvey in the future? Apparently not.

If anyone is interested the hat that President Trump wore while touring Houston (as well as at two Hurricane Harvey related  meetings in the past 4 days that the White House released pictures of) is available to purchase for only $40 on the President's campaign website.  That's right, our very own Embarrassment-In-Chief is using a national disaster to hawk his own merchandise.  Stay classy 45...

The actual hat, or a replica?

Tacky and insensitive or not, that's a pretty good price for Presidential memorabilia.

A likely "made in China" replica hat not THE hat he wore.  It is the next generation of his ugly red "Make America Great Again" hats.

Edit: added "not THE hat he wore" for clarification.

How long before Mrs. Trump's "FLOTUS" hat will be available for purchase?

Even liberal Slim admits the left narrative is not winning:

The Antifa movement will help Trump, mark my words.   That is not their intent but their use of violence will turn people.

They are a Godsend for Trump.   With the Left's lack of message right now, they are the message and sooner or later they will muck it up.   I am not saying the Right has a solid message right now, both parties are rudderless and without direction.   They have failed us.

Antifa as a narrative is being pushed by the alt-right with the aid of Russian bots.  It's up to you if you want to help an enemy state with their agenda or not, but the best thing you could do is ignore "antifa".  They haven't earned the attention they're getting.

Berkeley's mayor just asked to have them classified as a gang. The Washington Post just noted their violent attacks against innocent protestors. This isn't an "alt-right" thing.
