We all tend to be blind to our own failings, especially when we become emotionally invested in an argument.
    The truth hurts. He attacks his fellow Christians, question their faith, based on what? Disagreeing with his politics.

    If I thought you were accurately portraying him, I would not have objected. Part of the problem here is that BOTH sides tend to see the other in the worst possible light. Both sides would benefit from displaying a little charity.

    I amen'd your post not so much as an "Amen", but an "oh me!"

    Again, if the House wants to compel them to testify then all they have to do is grant subpoena authority to the Judicial Committee with a House vote. The ball is in their court, and they're just letting it sit there.
    To be fair, there would still be a question of executive privilege in some cases. It's not automatic that all would testify.

    That said, yeah valid subpoenas would significantly strengthen the Democrats case that the Administration isn't cooperating. And they know it.

    On to Round Ten!

    I base my observation on what I see and this what I see:

    He thinks Trump is among the most evil people to exist and nothing will change his mind.

    There is no meaningful discussion to be had, when any opposing view is treated as enemies at the gates.

    My post was not an appeal to the polls as a validation of truth. It was stating the simple fact that my opinion is not by any stretch a minority or singular opinion. And if you had an ounce of honesty in you instead of cheap shots like the above you'd admit you were wrong to affirm MM's claim I was using the polls to justify my opinion and apologize.
    How is all that NOT an attack on Cow Poke? Jim, you routinely do what you accuse others of doing to you. Kind of a reverse golden rule or something?

    Which is doubly odd in light of the line in his signature that says...
    "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets"

    I don't take it personally -- I think he is so consumed with this Trump thing that it's like a cancer that's eating him from inside out, but he can't see that.

    ETA: But it's nice that Ox's atheist buddies can always come to his defense.
