I LOVE how this is coming from CNN.

They were the first major media outlet to be lambasted by trump as "fake news". And trump shouted down the CNN reporter and refused to take his question, even while he persisted in trying to ask it. That was the first shot of this new so-called "presidency." And now, it's really rather glorious to see CNN coming up with story after story after story punching more holes in this jerk. A lot of the time, CNN is leading the pack on this score. They seem to be the ones who are drawing the most blood.

Exquisite! As they said in old the Almond Joy commercials, "indescribably delicious!"

Yep. Sounds like the only thing to do is MAKE DAMN SURE WE VOTE IN THE MIDTERMS.

We HAVE TO take back the House and the Senate. Only then can we get anything constructive done.

Here: I'll fix Matthew 25 for them.

35 For I was hungry and you begrudged me food stamps and called me a lazy moocher, I was thirsty and you said I was only a derelict drunk (if I give him money, he'll just go buy booze with it), I was a stranger and you called the cops to get me out of your sight, 36 I needed clothes and you presumed I was either a derelict or a sex offender, I was sick and you told me I should just go take an aspirin or go to the emergency room, I was in prison and you ignored me, saying I deserved to be there because I certainly must be guilty.’

I deleted the rest. The CONS aren't interested in that message anyway.

There. Fixed it for 'em.

Gotta say, I listen - hard - to these sanctimonious shitheads wrapping themselves around

the Cross of Christ and prancing around all holier-than-thou all the time and shoving their "religion" down everybody else's throat.

I listen - hard - to hear if they EVER quote the Beatitudes, or the parable of the rich young man, or Matthew 25, or any of those Scripture passages. NEVER. I NEVER hear it. I have NEVER heard it coming out of Mike Pence's mouth, and there's no bigger holier-than-thou than he is.

Captain Clusterfuck and his little white side-kick, Corporal Christian-Sharia-Law.

and

Yep. Pretty much that's what you have to do.

Assume they're trying to roll you.

I'm noticing that here. We've got local elections next month. There's a guy running against Eric Garcetti for L.A. mayor. Nowhere on his campaign literature OR his website does it make clear whether he's a Dem or a CON. I called the campaign number and got voicemail. It MATTERS to me. And I said so in the message I left.

So with no other information to clarify things, I'm forced to assume that the other guy (name is Mitchell Schwartz) is a CON. I noticed that awhile ago with various campaigns and campaign literature. Maybe because this is a blue state and L.A. is true blue, seems there are what I call "stealth candidates" whose literature and website and sloganeering talks about all these great wonderful and harmless-sounding things. But they don't identify what party they're from. And since they don't, I automatically assume they're trying to pull something over on the unsuspecting. CON-JOB ALERT!

I WILL NOT VOTE GOP. Not now, not next month, not next year, not four years from now, NOT EVER.

trump's tax returns - same thing.

If he had nothing to hide, he'd be pushing those tax returns in our faces every five minutes, and touring the country with them.

The longer those tax returns stay hidden from us, the more I become convinced that there's absolute Hellfire and Damnation in there.

"...whatever you do to the least of these..."

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

If this shit is allowed to continue, we are damned.

Yes! That kid from Indiana.

Anyone Howard Dean likes gets a second look from me. But I like his fire and his energy, his wish to focus on local and state action and build from there (which we should have been doing all along), and he's YOUNG. LOTS of tread still on his tires. And it's time we built more bench strength and develop some new powerhouses. We've got to identify some future Presidential possibilities. Can't keep going to the well with the same old faces. And they'll all be three years older by the time the next Presidential cycle rolls around.

Yep. That's what I fear, too.

And that's how it played out. Overnight, dubya went from floundering to flying high.

He would DEFINITELY not be an improvement over trump.

Not by a long shot!

In some ways he's worse. Wolf in whiter-than-white sheep's clothing, hellbent on imposing Christian Sharia Law on the whole country, now that he's had some experience with it in Indiana. I suspect he's developed quite a taste for it from his hapless governor days.
