Re: The Trump Wall
I'd leave it to Trump's advisors to plan the Rio Grande portion of the wall, or whatever other form of dealing with the illegals they come up with for that area.
I agree. Leave it to the Trump team.
Then we can have a good laugh when they screw up.

Re: Reaction to The Trump Inauguration: Impeachment?
The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun
It won't go anywhere, until the Republicans decide that it is time to dump Trump.

Re: Trump whining about inauguration head count...
One of the most disappointing things about Trump is his thin skin.
That will be his downfall. But I am not at all disappointed to see him making these early missteps.

I will say there was a section in the CIA speech he gave that really really has me concerned.
I already knew that he was way out of his depth -- the Dunning Kruger effect gone mad -- so this did not raise any additional concerns.

Re: the spontaneous outpouring of citizenry
There was no EPA in the 60's, no global warming / climate change movement.
The EPA was created by Nixon (a Republican), and began operations in 1970. So maybe not in the 60s, but close.
There was already concern about increasing CO2 levels in the 60s. I first read about that while in graduate school (60s).
There was no attempt to involve the government with health care in the 60's.
Medicare started in 1965, signed into law by Johnson (a Democrat).

Re: Russian mole in the White House. At least one.
These people are playing games with OUR national security. For what, monetary and political gain?
The Republicans don't care.
They like to display their patriotism, which seems to be only for show. But they are okay with the white house being full of traitors, as long as they are Republicans.

Re: Trump Accuses Obama of Wiretapping his Phones
The man is unhinged.
I'm not at all sure that he is unhinged.
It looks to me as if he is deliberately creating a feeding frenzy among the core Trump voters. And if we go by the posts of a Trump voter at this forum, it seems to be working.

Re: GOP Healthcare Bill to Reduce Taxes on the Rich
Remind me, how is this an improvement ?
More people will die, because they cannot afford health care.
That will reduce the amount paid out in social security (retirement).
That leaves a bigger pool in the social security trust fund.
Their next target will be to loot the social security trust fund.

I hope that was sarcasm
Yes, I do worry that it might be reality.

Re: Fun Fact
Did you guys know that Trump personally profited from Raytheon’s jump in stock directly after his Syrian attack?
The most corrupt president, ever. So this is no surprise.

Re: Wait...what?????
And it would be still hard to convince a jury that he did not get anything.
That may depend on how many fundy Christians are on the jury.

It failed for W.

Re: People who voted for Jill Stein were tricked, and we are all paying for it
People who voted for Jill Stein were tricked, and we are all paying for it
I would word that:
"People who voted for Jill Stein were damned fools, and we are all paying for it."
But then the people who voted for Donald J. Satan were even worse fools. And they are still fools, because many of them still support him.

Re: A valid reason to vote 3rd Party
Do you think this claim is false?
Yes, it's false.
Specifically, this part is false:
quote:
who thereby lost their jobs
And it's false because most of those workers would have lost their jobs anyway, due to changing technology.
