3. What is it with Rs and their refusal to comprehend black letter law?

Reminds me of sovereign citizen types that go into court challenging the constitutionality of the federal bench.

9. yup. got a friend who is one of those. he just lost

his parental rights because he played that shit in court and the judge wasnt buying it.
lost to an ex w a drinking problem, who drove drunk w the kid in the car.

i actually know the judge and no way she wanted to do that.
but he was an absolute idiot, and wouldnt cooperate w ANYTHING the court asked him to do.
wouldnt listen to attys, either. went through a couple of them, flushed his money by not taking their advice.

4. Only the republican Draft-Dodger-in-Chief gets DOD info ? WTF ?

You can see how sick and unpatriotic the repubes are now.

Only a five-time Draft-Dodger gets the facts. And he is a notorious serial liar.

Sick republicans are weakening America, and leaving us undefended against real threats.

never would have made it beyond the escalator when he declared Mexico was sending us rapists and criminals.

7. No reports from the Pentagon

Equals no funding for the military from Congress. Sad that our branches of government must fight each other. Congress has oversight over spending. They are the ones who authorize war. They are entitled to information from any branch of government.

Trump's behavior is petty, illegal and dangerous to our national security. We are in the hands of a madman who is determined to destabilize and destroy us.

11. This is correct

And it is obvious that Trump can't be reasoned with, that he neither knows nor cares about how government functions and the various interagency communication necessary to running the government. Part of this has been a combination of fear and laziness by government officials (elected and appointed), and partly a failure by Congress for the two years it was run exclusively by Republicans to exercise any oversight whatever.

In just four months of the most gentle oversight, Trump has lost his marbles, and is lashing out like Stalin in his last days. Government officials need to gird their loins and prepare themselves for the worst Trump can do. Yeah, you're going to get dragged by the administration and its sycophantic mouthpieces in the media (Fox). Suck it up and do your jobs, folks.

8. Done like a true wannabee dictator! FFS, the GOP needs to wake up ... but maybe they want

the ass in the WH to be a dictator. They probably want to repeat a US version of Germany WWII.
