Meanwhile, Congress Has Done NOTHING this Year

more Nothing than they did last year.

A big steaming pile of nothing.

Here is a link to that nothing in case you don't want to see anything.


Trump Has His Own 'Rape' Problem (trigger warning)

By now, you have problem seen Trump's unfounded allegations (i.e. fiction) against Bill Clinton.

Let's just review Trump's own 'Rape' problems:

Ivana Trump accused Donald of rape during a deposition for their divorce proceedings:

Ivana Trump’s assertion of “rape” came in a deposition—part of the early ’90s divorce case between the Trumps, and revealed in the 1993 book Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump.
The book, by former Texas Monthly and Newsweek reporter Harry Hurt III, described a harrowing scene. After a painful scalp reduction surgery to remove a bald spot, Donald Trump confronted his then-wife, who had previously used the same plastic surgeon.
“Your fucking doctor has ruined me!” Trump cried.
What followed was a “violent assault,” according to Lost Tycoon. Donald held back Ivana’s arms and began to pull out fistfuls of hair from her scalp, as if to mirror the pain he felt from his own operation. He tore off her clothes and unzipped his pants... http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/07/27/ex-wife-donald-trump-made-feel-violated-during-sex.html

I left the quote there due to trigger factors. Feel free to read on at the link if you must. It's pretty disgusting stuff.

He was also accused of taking advantage of a teenage sex slave in the 1990's... http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/trump-rejects-categorically-false-charges-raping-teen-girl-article-1.2618137

Seriously, it seems he is going to accuse Bill and Hillary of everything that he himself has done... WTF

Have We Reached a Party Re-Alignment Tipping-Point?

Eating lunch today and seeing the news about what Romney was saying about Trump, I just had (for the first time) a very strong feeling I was watching the destruction of the Republican party and perhaps the beginning of a kind of weird new re-alignment of the parties.

Is the two-party system about to permanently dissolve (finally) due the pressures presented by being a large, modern, and diverse country?

Is it just the wheels coming off the Republican Party permanently?

Is the Democratic party as participating in this 'change'?

I don't really have a dog in this fight, I was just curious to see what other people are thinking at the moment.
