In line at Broward County Courthouse

Elderly white lady with deep Southern accent bashing Trump and government shutdown. (We had slow lines at metal detectors, nothing to do with federal shutdown) but I wasn’t going to miss an occasion to chime in against trump. She mentioned trump wants to be like a Russian dictator and I said I don’t think Russians are stupid enough to shoot themselves in the foot and that we might have zero growth this quarter because of the shutdown.

I live in a 70% Democratic county, but it encouraged me to see a woman older than I am who was not a Fox News aficionado/a. Hoping that any Republicans within earshot know that we will blame them for the slow down of economy since money (theirs) is all they care about.

Speaker Pelosi is fighting for the Constitution

Don’t let anyone frame this to be about “manners” and “civility.” The executive cannot be allowed to shut down the people’s government on a whim. The executive cannot invite himself to speak in the people’s house without the consent of the Speaker of the House. The executive cannot be allowed to stop lawful investigations of the executive and of his (our) employees.

Anyone on DU who was not taught to step aside for older person?

Give up their chair, give them their place at the head of the table?

You would think that right wingers would be all about the respect for their elders.

I love the exciting moment at a gender reveal party when you find out if the baby will be a boy or if it’ll be unlikable
