      I DID cry:) Good tears. JOYOUS tears! Feels like I can finally breathe a little easier

        Such an amazing day. To see our Congress more representative is so uplifting. To witness the STARK contrast between one side of the House and the other side……..to witness the future of America the GOP is truly so terrified of……..mind-boggling.

    Welcome back, Nancy P! I have long-awaited your return.
    My prayer is that throughout this session of Congress you won’t ever have to struggle to get the support you’ll need to help get the Ship USA back on track.

    Sooo, I heard on the car radio this evening that Beyonce & JZ’s music vid at the Louvre greatly improved 2018 museum attendance. IOT that it has made a significant increase in the museum’s 2018 finances. All I could say was ‘Wow’.

      It was a good interview. Rep.Waters knows what she is doing and how to get stuff done. I watched tv news today for the first time in two years. I loved that Nancy had all those children with her. Her message was that she is working for our FUTURE. Hope is once again surfacing.

      I’m over the moon about this! My badass senator:) The fact that she probably sent Pence to rock back and forth and cry in Mother’s arms, was icing on the cake. Arizona has a smart, woman senator for the first time in history. So proud!

    Soybean Farmers are going to go bankrupt and I will NOT give a “nickle” of FARM AID to those stupid bastards because even in the face of the tariffs they STILLED believe the lies and will go down in flames while Trump could walk away with most of his ill-gotten gain. Someone is cashing out for the DOW to plummet. I image the CEO’s and Shareholders are stashing lots of cash in the Cayman Islands.

      My wife and I took a cruise to the Cayman Islands once, it was a lovely cruise, but that’s not the point. Those farmers were so happy and so sure that trump was going to crater those “other” people, and that’s why they voted for him. And now they’re finally realizing that trump doesn’t give a damn about them.

      What ashame. They released a drawing of the person they are looking for. If it turns out to be a right wing racist bigot like Trump, you can bet he won’t have anything to say about that little girl being murder like he did about the illegal immigrant killing the cop afew weeks ago.

    I do not really understand why Democrats consciously choose to amplify the fake stories or feigned outrage generated by a hypocritical rightwing echo chamber.

    in the end what falling in this trap does is to generate fake controversy about trivial stuff and this controversy undermines members of our team.

    • January 4, 2019 at 2:30 pm

      Yeah, it seems no matter how many stupid rabbit holes Trump and the GOP dig, the masses always follow them down as if this is some sort of legitimate line of inquiry. It’s a complete waste of energy and a surrender to the charade.

    Happy Friday TODVille.

    Another one running for cover.—

    Sen. Pat Roberts announces he won’t seek reelection in 2020 in another departure of a GOP senator known for bipartisanship

    The blunt-speaking Kansan was first elected to the Senate in 1996 and has served as chairman of the Agriculture Committee. Roberts recently shepherded a new farm bill into law that every Senate Democrat voted for, a rare occurrence in a fractious Congress.

    Roberts, 82, barely survived a primary challenge in 2014 and won reelection after Republicans spent more than $10 million on the race. His announcement of his planned departure comes weeks after another longtime senator, Republican Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, said he would retire at the end of his term.

        The Refuckers and Indies will vote in DEMS and once we “FIXED” the economy they will vote in the Refuckers all over again. This cycle has got to stop. We stopped it in CA and I hope other states will vote these GOP fuckers out permenately.

        Can your skills be used for a state job or private industry? I work for a state agency my whole career. I was furloughed only once and it was no fun. They allowed us to file for unemployment. We had to wait one week, so I got paid for the 2nd week some pithy amount under $500. The 3rd week they came back so many of us who made good money were fucked for the rest of the month of July. We got our first pay check mid August. The next time I wonder if it would be better to take the whole month of July on vacation, get it approved, then cancel it if we go back to work. I could have gotten paid the whole month of July.

          I’m staying with the feds, I can hold out for as long as need be. We will get paid back all of our salary once the shutdown ends. But I fear for my coworkers, some of them can’t hold out. Even though we are at opposite ends of the political spectrum, I still hope that they will be okay.

    One of the main reasons I come here is to keep my sanity, and to sometimes vent. This vent was courtesy of a coworker that I’m almost positive can’t afford to miss two paychecks. This fucker is under the illusion that trump is trying to help the working folk of his country, and that the shutdown will have a positive effect on this country. Where do these fuckers come from?

    He is getting crazier by the minute.

    President Trump did not specify how he would use these powers to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border but confirmed it is an option he is considering.

    “I can do it if I want,” he said during a news conference in the Rose Garden at the White House. “We can call a national emergency and do it very quickly.”

        I can’t stand to watch him nor hear him speak. When they play him speaking on the radio I turn it off. That goes for his sycophants too. I will only read what he says, no longer in disbelief but disgust.
