Yep, that pretty well sums it up how I see it.

Thank you for this, JB

SLATE article: "Trump is Weaker Than He Looks"

Found a well written piece on SLATE.


Excerpt: Intoxicated and emboldened by their near-miraculous victory, Republicans are rushing into the new year with a divisive and unpopular agenda, led by a divisive and unpopular president. Indeed, with no apparent plans for increasing manufacturing jobs or improving veterans’ health care, Trump shows few signs of delivering on his substantive promises. In all likelihood, he’ll offer rhetoric and scapegoats and stunts, while delivering little in the way of tangible gains. And all of this will exist against a backdrop of corruption and influence-peddling, as Trump refuses to disentangle himself or his children from their opaque and sprawling web of business interests.

Crude, ignorant, vindictive, unpredictable and treasonous is the new "being presidential" replacing dedicated, dignity, and knowledge.

You've probably seen this.. "small victory.."

Judge Blocks N.C. Law Stripping Power From Incoming Governor

RALEIGH, N.C. — A North Carolina judge granted a small victory to the state's incoming Democratic governor on Friday, temporarily blocking a law by Republican lawmakers stripping him of control over elections in a legislative power play just weeks ago.

Wake County Superior Court Judge Don Stephens blocked the new law, which would end the control governors exert over statewide and county election boards, as Gov.-Elect Roy Cooper is set to take office Sunday.

Speaking of that.. I just saw this blast from the kochs' past..

Inside the Koch brothers campaign to privatize the VA.

THE best piece I've seen on this. A realistic assessment of the VA, exposing the Fake News behind the Repubs' plan to dismantle it. It's in-depth & worth the read.


Thank you for the link on the VA, A
