23. Yes, on another thread the argument is that the President cannot

prosecute torturers because it will "backfire politically." What in the world has our party come to? When did we become so afraid of what Republicans and Rush have to say? What the hell??

You are absolutely right, many people have lost respect and confidence in Democrats. I know I have. Either they are cowards or complicit, and I suspect it's a whole lot of both. That is why I admire fighters like Warren, Sanders and now De Blasio. Someone has to stop the slide into absolute madness that the right wing and fundamentalists are dragging us into. It's time to stop negotiating and fight.

As you know I just came back from Europe and every person I met said with horror, "What is wrong with your country? Why are the police killing people? Why are people shooting each other all the time? Why are your leaders so crazy?" And as always, I never have an answer.
