What I want to know is if they'll try again now that they know McCain will vote against it.

Anyway, Trump has been holding the funds for insurance companies on ACA. His talk about it "going to implode" is because he's making it.

First McCain kills the repeal and replace and now Sen. Lindsey Graham threatens the Trump Presidency.

While Pres. Trump still has plenty of allies in Congress, he seems to be losing a lot of clout.

I own six copies of that song by various artists including the Muppets...it's a song about a man who makes a deal wit the Devil and then gets out of it by calling on God to forgive his sins (which includes murdering someone).

Well, it's sad. But that's a better age than some in the recent storm of obituaries managed to reach. :(
My comic, Res Mira, starts here.

The crazy will bust loose. Either in the stories or on the forum. Or both at the same time.

Mad theory: Eulice is actually a retired succubus. This explains why she says DiDi Chastel looks like she did in her younger years. She maintains her current form because it allows her to get through her day without having to turn down sexual advances.

A busty redhead by decree of the Internet...? o.o;

Skerelli kept saying how he had such a great victory because he wasn't convicted on the worst charges...just on some of them. Apparently he never realized that prosecutors will charge people with EVERYTHING they can get away with possibly related to the crime in hopes of getting a conviction on a couple of them.
