How many of you will wake up...

Every day during the next 4 years with the awful thought lurking..."Is this the day he pushes the button?"

2017 - going to be like Watergate on Steroids...

Looks like the press is finally waking up now that the cast of villains is assembling.

"Chaffetz Skipped Meeting With Ethics Chief He Threatened To Subpoena, Emails Show" -- huff post (Hoist by their own Emails!)

The Daily Show will be about The Daily Lies

Tillerson
Sessions
DeVos
Mccmahon
Chaffetz
Cordish
The Russian Mafia and their Amerikanski friends

It's like an all-star team of daily scandal makers. 1972 rerun only bigger. Sure it might get familiar after a while but the sheer number of villains and their amazing audacity ensures at least ONE big scandal soon to come. And among the craven bunch at CNN, MSNBC and the like, at least one journalist is surely going to seek to make it big by exposing them.

Grab your popcorn!

Why Trump wants a quick "repeal and replace" for the ACA...

He has a TV mind. A short attention span - just like his voting public.

First, even Trump knows any GOP plan is going to suck in real-life terms.

And, sure, some of his stupid Red state white voters will get hurt and scream.

But the GOP has gerrymandered safe districts for the Senate and House so 2018 is not going to be a problem even with lots of bad publicity.

So what concerns Trump is TRUMP.

2020

And he knows that the US public, as well as CNN, MSNBC and the lot of them have short attention spans JUST LIKE HE DOES!

And THEY WILL FORGET ALL ABOUT IT by the time 2020 comes around.

Much better than having it hanging over him for the 2020 elections.

And sad to say he's right.

Post your Trump term movie mashup...

(Tv shows, songs, plays, books, movies ,etc.) = a mashup that best characterizes how you see the next 4 years playing out...

My take: MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER meets DR. STRANGELOVE

GOP to announce sweeping plans to ensure Voting Rights...

Soon to be Attorney General Jeff BEAUREGUARD Sessions (sometimes termed the 3rd, other times termed the somewhat limited) hinted at plans to ensure minority rights.

First would be a total privatization of highways allowing toll roads to be sold to "investors" thus limited inessential travel, especially for minorities, thus saving them essential dollars for drugs and alcohol according to Trump advisor Rudy Giuliani. Certain whites in areas like Appalachia would be given vouchers to use for local meth consumption. Joe Manchin enthusiastically added bi-partisan support for the measure.

Then under a new GOP-led federal aide program headed by new Secretary of Labor Andrew Pudzer, minority voters would be educated at mass educational centers in primarily Red Southern states, whimsically to be called "Plantations."

Upon graduation after a short 20 year program as servers in Hardee's and Car'ls Jr.s, they would be guaranteed the right to vote at 3/5 of any Caucasian ballot, even Mr. Trumps! (speculation abounds regarding Pudzer's nickname "Pud," seeing how others have mentioned it was a prime factor in his selection by Mr. Trump.)

unconfirmed rumor "Tex" Hall to be Trump's Bureeau of Indian Affairs head...

Republicans rumored to cite his expertise in Ethics handling as prime qualification (his environmental concerns a close second for their praise):
