I've got a lot of problems with you people



tRump can't fire Mueller, and it's doubtful anyone at DOJ can either, at least anytime soon

There is a lot of worry out there over this topic, but last night Ari Melber, a lawyer, and his guest, former federal prosecutor Seth Waxman, use the Special Counsel law to show tRump can't fire Mueller, and if he goes down the line at the DOJ to do it, that wouldn't be the end of it. Mueller's team of lawyers, who would have standing, can take the matter to court, in which case Mueller could do his job for months, or maybe even longer until it was resolved. By that time, assuming tRump survived the firestorm his action would cause, would probably be under indictment and/or impeachment, with Mueller's team having enough time to do their work.

Does that mean our idiot POtuS wouldn't do something stupid and try to do it? Of course not, but there is a big difference between a successful firing of Mueller and a process which would drag on for months, in which some of the best lawyers in the country would be taking on mob clown show lawyers in front of federal judges who come from the same places as Mueller's team. I'll place my money on an outcome favoring Mueller. Not to mention the fact that trying to fire Mueller will not stop the FBI counterintelligence investigation that started all this, or state probes.


Paul Ryan "soul searching" whether to retire. That shouldn't take long

A very shallow pool to search in.


Heather Heyer's mother has to hide her grave

Just one part of what her family is dealing with from hate groups (you know the ones dump says have good people too):

Ana explodes on CNN

at dump apologist Ed Martin. Don't mess with this lady.

The last time I cried over an election was Nov. 4, 2008

I cried again tonight. I truly believe this is the start of getting our country back. The reddest state of all showed tonight that not all of our country is as screwed up as our POtuS and Moore and their apologists and enablers.

GoFundMe success for woman who flipped off drumpf

A man has raised $73,000 toward a $100K goal:


Wow. A politician as repugnant as trump

Congratulations Roy Moore! You have reached a standard of sleaziness and cynicism that can only be measured against the heights of vileness reached by the slimeball in the White House. The attacks on your accusers and maintaining complete denial when the right thing (the Christian thing according to your own stated beliefs) would be to admit your mistakes, apologize and step away. But, like trump, you are more than willing, even eager, to denigrate the office you aspire to and rot our democracy - all the while using religion and bigotry to get you out of this self-created disaster.

You sir, along with your idol, are the two biggest pieces of shit ever to walk on our political landscape. So a big congratulations to you. And while we're at it, a big pat on the back to those republican leaders who have had the courage to come out against a pedophile. I can just imagine how proud Lincoln, Lodge and Eisenhower would be of you and their party if they could see what has happened to it.

Question for Maine DUers

Is there any chance Collins could become an independent and vote to caucus with the Dems in 2019?

Insurance industry job losses from single payer not as large as you would expect

Plus Conyers' bill has a provision to help them transition. The overall numbers on how many workers lose or change jobs every year surprised me: 42 percent.
From the article: "Although it is hard to come up with a precise estimate, the likely number of jobs made redundant by the switch is a few hundred thousand over the course of a few years, in a country where 1.6 million people are dismissed from their jobs every single month."
