Sure ok...defiant. I might have chosen a different adjective, but ok.
Diminishing returns.
Diminishing from what? Nothing?

It's not like you were offering anything of any value to begin with. Go ahead and be defiant, the kids will do what they must without you...and then you'll just be irrelevant.

Read it again...I am on that list. And yes, my opinions are already "spot-on."

Fact Check: I read a story in Medium today (link that I clicked from somewhere) that really should be retracted. It incorrectly claimed that the NRA was falsely claiming 501(c)(3) status. The story confused the NRA with the NRA Foundation, which I'm sure their lawyers are very careful about keeping within IRS restrictions on such organizations.

I'm not happy about the abuse we allow on tax-exempt status but Medium got their story completely wrong. Just had to say that.

I'm not talking about diminishing returns from me. The battle is for the middle of the road voters. That's where you are starting to get diminishing returns, the more the rhetoric becomes shrewish, (bad-tempered, quarrelsome, spiteful, sharp-tongued, scolding, nagging), and smug (as in full of himself David Hogg).

You're joking, right?

Have you seen the rhetoric coming from folks like Ted Nugent? Alex Jones? Frank Stallone?

Hogg isn't even close to that level of smugness.

Nugent is especially ironic. Claiming to be some great patriot when he admits to pooping in his pants to avoid the draft.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Except 60% to 80% of the country agrees with him, depending on the question. I'd think if any returns are diminishing, it's because we're running out of people to agree.

But not as in Dana Loesch...right?



I think your adjectives fit her quite well, yet apparently you're willing to listen to her...is it the breasts that do it?
