The only real option (Constitutional) we have is the ballot box.

We can pressure our congressional reps., but if the republicans stay in charge and they refuse to do anything.... we're pretty much screwed until 2020.

Get out and work to elect a democratic majority in 2018.

Of course if the investigations get too hot, trump just might resign. Can we live with Pence? Remains to be seen.

My ideal scenario is that Pence is impeached first, so trump can appoint a new VP. That VP should be Hillary to correct the tainted 2016 election.

Who is in the hospital? (Trump press conference)

He keeps talking about how one of the senators is "in the hospital" --- he must have said it ten times. He is saying they will postpone the healthcare vote until Jan. or Feb. because they will have the votes after reconciliation.

I hope to God he is not in the WH by then.

Steve Bannon endorses Scott Wagner (R) for governor of PA.

What Wagner was talking about, Bannon told the crowd, was not about beating just Democrats but also the Republican establishment.

“The first thing we've got to get through is a corrupt and incompetent Republican establishment,” Bannon told the crowd to cheers.

Kasich is very two-faced.

He works very hard at portraying the average, moderate, guy-next-door, but is really a right-winger. He just seems moderate when compared to trump, cruz, et al.

This is from an article from the primaries, but it's the first thing that popped up on Google:

“The people in Ohio who know him are stunned that he has been allowed to get away with calling himself a moderate,” said Sandy Theis, executive director of the liberal thinktank Progress Ohio.

“He is a climate change denier, he has had a scandal in his heavily championed support of charter schools, unemployment has gone down but poverty has risen in the state, we have a terrible infant mortality rate for African American babies – I could go on. Maybe the middle has moved so far to the right that there is no genuine moderate in the Republican race anymore,” she said.

Pretty much sums him up.

Cuban is no "jag-off." :)

But Dotard surely is!

Poldark comes back this week! :woohoo:

Two-hour Season Premiere on Oct. 1 at 9 pm, ET.

:)

I have been looking up the photo of Dr. King kneeling in Selma in 1965. He knelt on one knee while others in the march knelt on two.

Interesting how this has evolved into a lesson on the history of the civil rights movement. Now I have to go research whether Kaepernick was honoring Dr. King when he took that position the first time.

To be honest, I didn't pay a whole lot of attention until yesterday. Thanks, trump. So much to think about today!

I stopped going when I could no longer read anyone's name tags.

I think that was the 30th.

Our class had its 50th recently. I didn't go. It would have involved staying in a hotel and putting the dogs in a kennel. Plus the cost of the evening and clothes, hair appointment, etc. I just couldn't justify the expenses to see people who I barely knew 50 years ago.

On a positive note though, our 15th reunion was a lot of fun. Not that many people went and it was very laid-back. I guess it depends on how many decades have passed.

One of the best posts I have read in a long time.

Thanks for expressing what so many of us are thinking! I just don't have the knack for writing that you have!

I want to move on already and focus on 2018. Has anyone noticed that we have A LOT of attractive young fresh faces running for Congress next year?! I see them on Twitter all the time.

Also, the democrats have won six out of six state house races since the election! We have a lot to be optimistic about.
