This what happens when you match a meticulous, brilliant, and prepared attorney against a wall of

ignorant, petty, and unprepared cultist. My brother in law is a great businessman, never went to college but is a smart guy. He has been very successful and so-called good catholic. Yet when I ask him how he squares Trumpís audacious criminality and immorality with his Christian Values he replyís, I like the man. Or Obama this and Hillary that non-sense. He is a cult member programmed by anti-liberal Facebook feeds that have polluted his mind. He is hopeless. Trump could kill somebody on 5th Ave. and it wouldnít change my brothers-in-lawís opinion of him. Itís the conservative weak minded group think. John Dean wrote a book on why conservatives are without conscious. Itís a good read and describes the Republican group think mindset.

Should Dems take control of all three branches and embark on wholesale political, social, and

economic changes, we might emerge a stronger nation. Trump has exposed our weaknesses and where we go from here is up to us. Itís a tall order and letís hope one we can fulfill.

While medical costs are a major cause for filing bankruptcy, the uptick I am seeing is

irresponsible lending the banks. Clients are trying to carry $60-$70k in credit card debit and their incomes simply arenít sufficient to cover the minimum payments. Then they are car repair or unpaid missed week of work from disaster. I will see filing related to medical costs later on due to lay-offs or job loss and people lose their medical coverage. The main reasons for filing I see at the moment are divorce, job lose and over-extended credit. The cost of living in NJ is high and most people live paycheck to paycheck. Even higher income earners over $250 a year are having difficulty. Lastly, the cost of medical insurance is outrageous. Most decent family plans in NJ will cost about $2,300 a month. For people who arenít on employer sponsored plans itís like a mortgage payment. Middle class needs immediate tax relief. I pay $17,000 just in property taxes to the State of NJ but because of Trumpís tax plan can only deduct $10k. Sorry for rambling but the tax system is a sham.

Exile the bastard to his beloved Russia.

I agree there will be a backlash in 2020 but remember when Bush-Cheney lied us into a war and we

thought it was the end of the Republican Party? As long as Fox exists to support the Republican Party and as long as abortion, gay rights, and tax cuts for the rich are issues, the Republican Party will continue to win elections after 2020. To dismantle the Republican Party we must first marginalize Fox. So goes Fox so goes the Republican Party. Without Fox, Republicans are doomed.

Sadly you are correct. Ken Starr is still around spreading lies. Mueller, I suspect, didn't have the

vigor to go toe to toe with the Dotard. What a huge disappointment especially seeing what Barr is doing to the DOJ and the great of the country. How Mueller can sit by and watch Trump and Barr potentially malign and indict career officials like McCabe, Strock, Yates and so many others is beyond me. Mueller better be careful or Barr will drag his ass in front of a grand jury and throw him in prison. That's what happens when good people quietly sit by and watch our country be destroyed by bad actors from within. You better believe Trump is nagging Barr, about when he is going to indict Obama and Biden.

Wow look at all the horrible policies AOC is fighting for. Fox must be stopped.

You are correct. My 22 year old college educated son is a Trumper. I told him last night his views

donít count in my house because he has no idea what is happening. Many young people today couldnít answer basic civics questions. Young men see Trump as macho and want to emulate him because of his wealth and ability attract women. They have no clue how his policies, destruction of the regulatory system of our government, and how his federal court judicial appointments will effect their lives and their kids lives. But can I blame them? I was a Trump fan during the Apprentice years. I bought into his fiction of being a billionaire even though as a resident of NJ I saw him destroy Atlantic City with his gaudy, mismanaged casinos. It was only during the campaign that I realized that Trump was an ignorant fool who knows nothing. For young men Trumps appeal is understandable. When I was 19 years old I voted for Ronald Reagan and as a young man bought into the thought that the Dems were weak. After all Carter didnít inspire confidence in our nation. As I grew older, went to college and law school, I realized that the Republican Party were nothing more than religious zealots who stood for nothing. As a lawyer I saw the Rs push Tort reform and bankruptcy reform two areas of law I specialize in. Bankruptcy reform under W was especially cruel, a big give away to the banks who wrote the law. Most people filing bankruptcy are hard working middle class people who suffered from either divorce, job loss or medical condition that wiped them out. 96% of my clients were ashamed to be filing bankruptcy and never thought they would. After Bankruptcy reform, the legal costs of bankruptcy increased and make filers jump through hoops before they can file. The biggest indignity is that before you can file a debtor must take a credit counseling course which informs people they can save money by turning off the lights and other idiotic suggestions. Funny how the banks who were bailed out and caused the Great Recession were never required to take such courses before lending huge some of money to people without verifying their income. Republicans have really fucked up this country. Sorry for rambling but itís all so crazy.

The Murdoch's should not be able to show their face in public without public protest. Make their

life a living hell like they have made our life. Iím talking about all the Murdochs who should not be able to eat in a public restaurant in peace. They should be publicly harassed and tormented. Their faces should be splattered all over the internet and demonized like they have demonized progressives. Iím talking from Rupert on down to the youngest adult members of the family. Rupert could easily put a lid on the creature Fox if he wanted. Why should he live a peaceful life of luxury while Fox spreads hate and lies and divides us.

They surely are the biggest snowflakes. I am sick and tired people thinking the right is so tough.

They are just a bunch of followers who cannot think for themselves and are just cowards. Just look at the aka enabling hearing and his conduct. The biggest myth, outright is that the left is soft and the right is hard and tough. Itís just total bullshit.
