The behavior of the police has once again added to the death toll.

Someone needs to change their chicken shit behavior of "assessing the situation" until it is safe to go in.

BLAME THE REPUBLICANS...for no change in the gun laws.

"The American people need the repetition of THIS IS THE FAULT OF THE REPUBLICANS beaten into the fucking heads so there is zero question about the differences between our two parties.


Say it right. Say their fucking name, Republican.

Stop with the weak-ass generic speak, “Americans have a gun problem.”

No. It is Republicans who have a gun problem. Republicans accept this carnage. Republicans refuse to join Democrats to pass common sense legislation.

It is not “we”. It is not “Americans”. It is not “Congress”. It is not “Government”. It is not “our leaders need to do something”. No. Knock it the fuck off.

This is 100% the fault of Republicans at every level of Government and it is long past time to take off the fucking gloves and rub their fucking faces in their blood-soaked mess."

Young, white males are still angry about not being heard....given opportunities...

What drives me nuts is they are still giving Trump a pass, 3.5 years into his term.
Am I reading this wrong?

Why is Trump meddling with the jailed Special Forces?

Could he be currying favor with the soldiers as he begins building his Palace Guard? I KNOW, where is my tinfoil hat..but I am wondering why he would even care.....what's in it for him?

..."Late last week, President Trump pardoned two service members and reversed the demotion of a third, each of whom was accused of war crimes."

Would Biden do Vice President again? I believe it would work very well.
Not sure he would go for number 2 again.

Run Baby Run...may the best candidate win.

I only hope to hell we have learned our lesson.


That means no sulking, sabotaging, or turning to a third party candidate.
We can't afford to hurt, or weaken, our eventual primary winner. We are not only
up against the Republican Party, but also the billionaire elite, Fox News, and
many large corporations too.

Happy Holidays to all of you!

Thank you for keeping me from ending up insane. Ever since the November 2016 election results, you have helped me see we can survive this 4 year, hopefully, less, fiasco.

Grassley needs to be put out to pasture

I remember when he first was elected. He did some good trying to show the wastes in defense spending. Now, just one of the grumpy old men.

Democratic Internal Debates Needed, BUT Not Now

The bashing each other over the "how to...how much" on specific issues is counter productive, and not needed at this point.
Right now, Dem leaders need to turn that energy toward attacking republicans. There is no reason for the continued silence. Dem leaders can, and should, respond to the daily horrific dismantling of programs that directly help or protect Americans, the environment, etc. without arguing among ourselves. We need to respond to the criminal acts against our country, and our democracy every day.
WHAT THE HELL IS THEIR TO DEBATE? The nightmarish attacks against our country by the Trump Administration, and congressional republicans, gives ALL democrats, and independents, ample material to speak out.
Ultra left, middle of the road, and conservative Democrats need to STOP attacking each other. Take turns going after republicans. Every time Trump's face appears on the news, so should a democratic leader calling out their lies, or comments. Call a lie,a lie! We are beyond niceties with republicans. Call Trump Little Donnie...egg him on. Tell him he is too chicken to testify in front of Mueller. There are 101 ways to get under his skin, to derail his message.

This is just my opinion. You can disagree with it, add to it, or what ever......just be respectful. Arguing, and back biting among ourselves plays right into their hands.

Palmer Report...Good, Bad, or Ugly

If you think I should post this in General Discussion, please let me know.

Just ran across this relatively new, 2016, independent news site. Is anyone familiar with the Palmer Report News Site? I'm trying to find information about them. I just read a conspiracy theory that Putin helped Trump by setting up the whole chemical attack which enabled Trump's missile response.

If you can share any opinions, or info. you might have on this news site I would love to hear it.
