You can have the America of "President Bannon", or you can have the America imagined in the Declaration of Independence and given form by the Constitution. But...
you can't have both.
02/26/2017 at 20:53
Apparently us. Just like going to the doctor when you have to tell them what's wrong and needs fixing. We have to be our own advocates at this point. Be relentlessly vocal and VOTE them out. This isn't just Steve Bannon though. It's been the dream of the far right for years.

No. The white supremacist, neo-nazi, neo-confederate cabal that voted for this racist kleptocrat won't care what he does as long as he does what he was elected to do. And that's to preserve white supremacy. As long as he does that they're all good !!!

Does this scare any Trump supporters....between the "military " rounding up of immigrants, declaring war on the press, searching staff phones, it's unsettling to me. Trump and his staff always look angry or smug and their message is negative. I'm not feeling leadership, I'm feeling contempt and takeover

This reminds me: I've been tweaking my Amazon Subscribe and Save stuff. I'm slowly accumulating more food to hold onto, just in case. Maybe it's because I've been rereading The Diary of Anne Frank, but I think it won't be long before we'll be missing snacks and little things from "The Good Old Days." Pre-war stuff that we won't have months or years from now.

The Republicans in Congress con the voters with smoke and mirrors and this ploy to undermine people's retirement savings is another ploy to dismantle Social Security.
02/26/2017 at 20:19
They are going to really fuck up this country if Ryan get's what he wants with cuts in social security and cutting medicare. Just remember this is *your* money they are fucking with. This is money that has *nothing* to do with the budget. If they fuck with these programs demand that you be paid back in full for the SS and Medicare taxes you've paid since the day you began working.

This calls for full-court press, call and write your Congresspeople every day to demand an independent investigation. Media--keep investigating and asking questions!!! They want us to let this go, don't fall for it.
02/26/2017 at 19:17
The truth on Russian collusion will come out, sooner or later, one way or another. The fact that this administration is going to such extraordinary lengths to stifle any sensible and independent investigation, only points an incriminating finger at their probable guilt. If they have done nothing wrong they would not be fearful.

Each & every one of these entitled politicians should have their benefits, per diems & retirements ripped from them! They have become so entitled, they have no physical emotions for the people they represent😡
They want something, they make a law to take it facing no consequences. Some of the blame is on the shoulders of the voters for voting them in but most is on the politician with no morals🚫

Historically one of the most common ways for a dictator or totalitarian government to gain and keep power is to identify an internal enemy and most often this is an ethnic group, specific religious group and the independent media. Sound familiar. Read some history.

Of course the ACA is a good thing. Is it as good as it can get? No, of course not. The very fact that the United States doesn't have health care for everyone shows how much control the 1 per centers have over the rest of us. Disgusting.

I also fault the Democrats for running away from the ACA rather than strongly defending and promoting it. They played into the GOP storyline of it being a bad program.

Privatization of necessary infrastructure, schools, roadways, etc. just means when there are no public alternatives we will be held hostage by the corporate need- I mean greed. Prime example is the drug gouging for life saving medications sold as being caused by aca- bull.
02/26/2017 at 18:12
This is all very believable. There is also likely another factor at play. Every politician wants to be a builder. Very few want to be repairmen. There is no glory there. No naming opportunities. No one remembers you for that.

Something else over which to drag your Republican Congressperson. Lying under oath to Congress during one's confirmation hearing is supposed to get one impeached and removed.

The way that things have been going. With the Common Man being kicked in the teeth by members of the Elephant Poop Party and their president.

At the end of the day, if all involved put the country before the vile, pernicious clowns in the GOP than one of either Trump or one of his capos will have to face treason charges.
I'd like to hope that none of them are above the law and will be spared the noose, and we have a judge who won't cower to hand out the sentence of death for treason.
