    That is why Trump wanted the senate rules lowered to 51 simple majority.
    I think Senators are getting fed up with the blob in the WhiteHouse making them look bad. This is why so many are working together. The moderates are getting stronger each day.

    Yeah, the more extreme wing of the Democratic Party base is angry. Of course, they don't run the party.

    If the Senate Republicans want to kill DACA, they'll do so by demanding a "comprehensive" immigration bill.

    A DACA bill is relatively easy to do. A comprehensive immigration bill, on the other hand, is practically impossible to accomplish -- especially so in such a short timeframe.

    According to the Sporting News, the Opening Ceremony is on Feb 9th. However, the qualification rounds for certain events (Curling and Ski jumping, noted) occur on Feb. 8th.

    No argument, and I don't really care.

    I want the US to do good.

    But, for me, like most Americans, it only exists on TV.

    Vacation packages start at only $13,000 plus airfare, plus tickets to the individual events, which is not as bad as I thought it would be...

    I'll pass on all that.

    I will not be tuning in to NBC much after the Super Bowl...
