    There were some POC who voted for PP … what were they thinking????
    My ex-colleague’s brother (from Pakistan) is republican leaning because of taxes … and wasn’t happy to vote for PP. I don’t know if he voted or not (i believe he wasbt planning to vote) … I said to my colleague at the time “tell your brother not to regret it when they start a registry for Muslims, and come knocking on his door”.

    it is very hard for me to moderate what I can say about the homegrown demagogue;

    it is very hard for me to be kind to those who enabled the homegrown demagogue to get this power through their participation or deliberate lack of participation in the election;

    by the time this scumbag and his fellow racist republicans leave power, I will need to go into 40 days and nights of fasting to clean my soul

      Not to worry. There is no such thing as climate change. We’ve had these big storms before….but my hands will be out asking for $$$ before the catastrophe happens. Got it.

    Part of a good thread:

    Another attack…on the integrity and humanity of America….and we will fight it of course….but then another attack is on its way….The Tax giveaway to the wealthiest Americans that is cloaked as Tax Reform… that this administration and the Republicans are about to unleash on the American people….this one might not get as much attention….since Trump was elected…#WeThePeople have been in defense mode….defending our very being it seems from the inhumanity of this current administration….what also might go unnoticed is how this administration’s goal is to dismantle government…department by department…to make the Federal government ineffective and dysfunctional….

      Every Dem should shout this message: Republicans WILL NOT simply “do the right thing” without imposing conditions that will allow Trump to do more damage.

      They don’t give one damn about DREAMers other than to dangle them as bait to get them to cosign more of Trump’s offensive against America.

      This devil’s bargain with Trump cannot drag the GOP down fast enough.

    Where is the judiciary ? Is there not even one judge who can issue an immediate injunction?

    The left dropped the ball bigly in 2010 and it has been downhill since, leading up to this.

    The mofos didn’t even give him two years to fix a fucked up country.

      There will be lawsuits, and some may well be successful, but they will be somewhat limited. The ones that are SOL are the new DACA kids who would have been eligible each day from here forward. They will not be allowed to file applications, and it is highly unlikely that any court will order DT to reinstate DACA to admit them to the program. That is going to be up to Congress. The existing DACA kids, conversely, have some pretty strong legal arguments on due process, breach of contract, and estoppel principles. But those kids will not be facing potential deportation for at least six months so we’ll see what the courts do with it. There will be some long range strategy involved (getting together all the AGs from the blue states, etc) as well as deciding where to file. Believe me, we do NOT want that lawsuit here in TX or in any of the other states presided over by the 5th circuit which is the most conservative appellate court in the country, and the one that blocked the implementation of DAPA. But the bottom line is the pressure is going to have to be on Congress. for the program to continue for the kids who become DACA eligible each and every day. And I have little faith in this idiotic group of GOP hacks.

          It is heartbreaking meta. The things this administration and Congress are tearing down that PBO worked so hard to get implemented is just…….I no longer have words left to express the way I feel. Despair, primarily.

    From our home, the vast majority of downtown Seattle is completely obscured by smoke. Gives one some sense of what it must have been like with Mt St Helens erupted in 1980.

    And yes, I agree with ….

    So the house and senate investigations into Russia and trump… are now blocking mueller investigation ??

    The whole lot of republicans were colluding??? At least it sounds that way now… 😉

  27. September 5, 2017 at 10:51 pm

    It’s way past time for the five former REAL Presidents of the United States to condemn Trump and call for what must happen – his removal and a special election.

    Nothing else can stop what is now obviously going to be the collapse of the USA and the death of billions of people if powerful, collective action isn’t taken.

    Unprecedented danger requires unprecedented courageous action. Otherwise, it’s all just conversation before the chambers, the gulags, the ethnic cleansing …. the first ever #NuclearWinter.

        I remember Spicy as someone who couldn’t read big words, new words, words with meaning. And Spicy was forced to lie every day beginning with inauguration day when, using ALTERNATIVE FACTS collected by Kellyanne, he claimed that the National Mall had gazillions of people lined up to see the Liar-in-Chief.

    from the article

    The only problem with Cillizza’s point is that he is flatly revising history in recounting Sanders and Clinton’s respective roles in confronting the GOP during the primary. Bernie Sanders wasn’t using his confrontational tone to primarily take the fight to Republicans; he was using it to beat up on Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders – and his supporters – during the primary had been far more animated about Hillary Clinton’s speeches to Wall Street than Donald Trump’s Russian connections. Sanders had been far louder about bashing Clinton for refusing to commit to a single payer health care plan than he had been against the entire Republican field who’d uniformly promised to erase all progress made on health care under President Obama

    Time to take matters into our own hands. One of Trump’s efforts to undermine Obamacare is taking the 3 month sign up period and shortening it to 6 weeks. But some states are overriding that with their own legislation.

      THIS!!!!! I am also happy that states are taking matters in their own hands. We do not have a real President; only someone who is using the office to inflict harm and revenge.

    During the Regan & Bush (1&2) era, the immigrant and their kids were A-OK as long as they did the housekeeping, gardening, and crop picking and stayed in the shadows.

    President Obama tries to give their children an opportunity to come out of the shadows and now they will be punished.
