My meanderings about politics, LGBTQI COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
What some people will do for just a little bit of attention. Let’s not forget this is the same Romney who went begging for the job of Secretary of State and was made to look like a fool by the current occupant of the White House.
you could tell him this picture that Trump was going to screw with Romney. You would think that Romney would become a thorn in Trump’s side. Sure he makes these kind of statements that he is shocked at his actions but he vote with Trump even when it means voting to lift sanctions against Russian oligarchs.
Romney is no Patriot he is an opportunist.
A true patriot would say that he would go along with the articles of impeachment that are so so needed against this criminal president.
Yes, I am a partisan Democrat and very proud of that. When my dad came to this country he saw which side was good and talk me the same.
Republicans win because they cheat. Democrats lose because they’re good at it.
I have watched a litany of amazing people who ran for president and did not win because Republicans cheat
Let’s start with Nixon, Hubert Humphrey was the vice president under Lyndon Baines Johnson and would have been a wonderful president of the United States but Nixon had to cheat it’s called Watergate.
George McGovern who ran in 1972 and who received my first vote in a presidential election. He ran against Nixon cheats.
After the Fall From Grace that Nixon suffered Gerald Ford immediately pardon him when he became president. A move I’m sure that Mike Pence would emulate in a second if he got to be president. Jimmy Carter 1 in 1976 when the United States needed a change from all of this cheating.
But never fear Ronald Reagan came to the scene and went and negotiated behind Jimmy Carter’s back to release the Iranian hostages. he made Jimmy Carter look weak and one of the best presidents we ever had lost in his re-election bid. You all know Jimmy Carter has one of the most amazing ex-presidents who even had his current age is building homes for the needy.
Al Gore won the election against George W Bush, but the Republicans cheat and because of the mess that the State of Florida is we got the wrong man to be president and we got to Wars that we still are in because of that. Think about what an Al Gore presidency would have done for our planet, instead of making videos he would have been able to actually make policy that would have reversed climate change in time for all of what’s happening right now not to have happened.
In 2004 John Kerry a military hero was Swift boated by the cheating Republicans and made to look like a deserter. This is coming from a president who had never done anything except to avoid military service. George W Bush came from a family of military service but he had nothing to do with it.
They try to cheat against President Obama but he was good and he had moderately honorable opponents.
Which takes us to present day and the cheater in Chief who currently occupies the White House. He colluded with Russians, wikileak, and anyone else he could get to cheat himself into the White House.
so it’s not surprising that tomorrow when the Mueller report comes out they would have already cheated. They are going to try to eclipse the Mueller Report with news coverage of their own but the American people are smarter than that and I think they’re going to see through it.
Always remember Republicans win because they cheat.
Attorney General William Barr should be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life because he can look at history books and see. Attorney General Mitchell went to jail for what he did for Nixon during Watergate. May William Barr suffer the same fate.

If this is not the company you want the United States to be listed with its time that we take a firm step into the 21st century and abolish the death penalty. How many deaths innocent men and women can our society have on its bloody hands? DNA evidence has cleared so many who have been sitting innocent on death row. can you imagine the stress of being confined when one is innocent? That nightmare should be enough to make us say no to the death penalty. It’s cheaper to house someone in jail for the rest of their life then to goes through the machination of a death penalty appeal process and incarceration.
Last week the Supreme Court stayed the execution of a Buddhist on death row but said no to one man whose only request was that he not be given lethal injection as he was allergic to the chemicals and would suffer greatly. He asked for the gas chamber or some other means but the Supreme Court said no.
If you do a search at the bottom of the blog’s home page for the word brexitread what I wrote the day after the election.
Basically said that I hope we in the United States don’t walk down the same path that those in the UK did on brexit. I implored people to go out and vote and make sure that we don’t wake up to a trump presidency the day after the election in November 2016. And here we are
I am honestly tired of all of the ridiculously early campaigning that we’re dealing with right now and then mccratic party. I am literally receiving two to three emails from every Democratic candidate that I have not asked to unsubscribe from. And we are just under 600 days away from the election!
Trump can win
Trump can win
Trump can win
Let that sink in and put aside our differences and support whomever the Democratic primary process brings as our nominee. I don’t like Bernie Sanders and I think he would be a terrible president but at the end of the day I would vote for him over Donald J Trump. It’s a shame that the Bernie Sanders supporters then do the same in 2016. I still have or had arguments because I won’t do it anymore with Sanders supporters saying that Trump is better than Hillary Clinton as a president. these people are so myopic and their vision of the world that it’s ridiculous.
So register to vote and make sure you vote both in the primaries and especially on that fateful November Day in 2020.
Trump saluting a North Korean General at the Hanoi failed talks. This alone would have been a scandal if it had been done by President Obama I would have been a reason for the Republicans to impeach him. Times have changed.
Can you imagine the uproar from a Liz Cheney if we try to meddle in the Republican primary process. Their heads would explode.
Basically this tells us that there are afraid of the field that the Democrats are mounting to take on Trump in 2020. I think they are feeling the fact that there’s going to be a tidal wave, a blue tsunami that will change the political landscape. That’s why you see Mitch McConnell rushing unqualified activist judges on the federal bench. he is trying to fill every vacancy that he left open during President Obama’s presidency. Shame on Mitch McConnell and the Republicans.
Better Angels, an organization I belong to, says one should listen to the other side. I’m listening and I don’t like what I’m hearing.
The Republicans are all up in arms about the freshman members of Congress. sure their views are different but of course they’re also younger and I have had a different life experience than somebody who’s been in Congress for the last 50 years.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg is talking long-term issues. Weighing these issues on how they are going to mature in the future. We seem to make our decisions based on a one-year budget. The best our government can do is a two-year farm Bill. It’s time we think a little bit further down the line then one or two years. China thinks in decades and has a plan mapped out for its economy and its people. Look I’m not talking about the dogmatic five-year plans of the Soviet Union.I’m talking about actual planning on how and why we want our economy to grow. Infrastructure should be our number one goal and this country. spending money on infrastructure does not balloon the debt. Spending money on infrastructure actually lowers the debt. The Republicans know that but they want us to be unhappy with the government so not fixing infrastructure is the best way of doing that.
Mayor Peter Buttigieg has some fresh ideas and he deserves to be on the stage when we have the debates in June.
Whenever I see these stories it makes my blood boil. They claim to be pro-israel but in fact they are not. They are being pro-israel in hopes that Israel is destroyed.
Belief in the Rapture, also known as millenarianism or eschatology, has multiple variations, but the core view is that there will an apocalyptic war, Jesus will return, and true Christians will be “raptured” or ascend to heaven, with the rest of the earth’s inhabitants punished. Rapture believersare split about the order of events, but they are united in the belief that only Christians will be saved.
Yes, it seems that so-called Christians, have come up with this voodoo religious kind of scenario where, of course, the Jews must all die so that Christians can find The Rapture and meet up with Jesus. This is racist and anti-Semitic point of Evangelical religion.
So whenever you hear about these laws that seem to be pro-israel, remember they are hoping for the destruction of Israel instead.
First let’s get some things out of the way. The dictionary definition of communism is:
a system in which goods are owned incommonand are available to all as needed
How is paying someone a living wage in anyway communism? The Republicans need to start doing some deep soul-searching because their corporate overlords are now going to threaten their political survival. The middle class is disappearing and AOC is only saying that she’s going to pay her staffers $52,000 a year. And the Republicans think this is outrageous?
The Republican brand is becoming one of corporate cronyism and leaning towards fascism. How is that the party of Lincoln?
Me thinks not all is peachy on the Republican side of the Senate.
Chuck grassley is not one of my favorite people. Chuck Grassley understands what McConnell has just set off. This is much worse than what Chuck Schumer did when he change the rules in the senate for confirmations to a majority as opposed to a 60-vote needed. Chuck Grassley understands that there’s going to be a democratic presidents maybe in the near future. Chuck Grassley understands that this is a president that is going to be disastrous for the Republican Party. sure the Republicans cheat but when they do they open the door for others to do the same.
I look forward to a democratic Congress and President. But if there’s a Democratic president she can declare National emergencies for things that are actually National emergencies. Something like climate change or gun control.
This false emergency is a smoke screen to hide behind for the Trump Administration and all of the problems that is besieging them.
it’s rather spectacular how do the GOP hierarchy has jumped on this no collusion bandwagon. I just saw the chairwoman of the RNC say that Trump has been exonerated! I laughed hard and then I blocked her.
Let’s make a few things clear here. First of all the Senate intelligence committee is a fact-gathering they do not have the power to put anyone in jail or even say that someone should be put in jail. Also unlike the Mueller investigation they cannot compel the testimony of people like with Gates who have the proverbial sword hanging over his head regarding how long he’ll go to jail if he doesn’t cooperate. They don’t have access to all of the information that Robert Mueller has but that’s not their job.
You know who else has attached in front of them, the prosecutors of the southern district of New York, the attorney General of New York, prosecutors from the Washington DC Office of the attorney General. Yes there are a lot more people looking into this then we know about.
