We need a massive movement to reform voting laws IMHO, including getting rid of state-level restrictions regarding convicted criminals and their voting rights when they are not incarcerated. States should not be able to arbitrarily take any citizens voting rights away nor should they make it so people can't exercise their right to vote unless incarcerated (and some countries even allow incarcerated citizens the ability to vote, which we might want to examine further as well).

WHAT did they put up with during the past 8 years?

"Nobody protested Obama"?

That's right up there with Limbaugh recently saying that Obama got everything he wanted. I hope that this alt-history doesn't wind up in a Texas-approved textbook.

I'm VERY sick of it too! Like, why the hell do we need to *understand* them anyway? Do we owe them sympathy or something because they voted for Trump and now (maybe) regret it? They're adults whom had the same access to all of the same information as the rest of us in the country whom didn't vote for Trump. Democrats didn't throw them or push them into the arms of a madman. They wanted to believe the s**t that Trump was peddling and were able and willing to dismiss all of the signs that Trump was seriously morally and ethically flawed and dangerously unqualified to be President. If they now feel bad about themselves for voting for Trump or can't understand why the majority of the people whom voted for Clinton are upset with them for their vote for an such a person, then maybe they could spend a little time doing a little introspection and/or try to understand OUR concerns and/or join us in our opposition to his policies, nominees, etc. because a whole lot of them are going to suffer equally for their vote for Trumpublicans in the last election.

So much

for him not taking a salary. I believe in the need to protect the first family but (and I may be wrong) they are normally all in one place most of the time. I don't think we've ever had a situation quite like this - in many aspects. I can pretty much guess at how the Republicans would be reacting to this if Trump was a Democrat, mostly because they flipped out over far less with President Obama. BTW has Judicial Watch spoken up about this (guessing not)?

There are many disturbing elements to this

The creepiest one being people having to declare their political affiliation and being discriminated over it, which would inevitably happen one way or another under this legislation. Besides, I thought that Republicans believed in being hired on the basis of your own merits, not your race, religion, sexual orientation, political affiliation, etc.

Didn't think about the racial aspect to it

but Trump, et. al aren't the most racially sensitive bunch either- and are damn proud of it too. Former President Obama is a citizen with the same rights as Mitch McConnell to organize resistance and opposition against a sitting President. I honestly wouldn't be happier to know that President Obama is running a "shadow government" to oppose the Trumpublican agenda-if he were. Is there some law against this that I don't know about. And hey, President Trump started his 2020 re-election bid this weekend, so it's really open season as far as I'm concerned!

Yeah so?

Rush "Big fat idiot" Limbaugh has no grounds to complain. He was chief cheerleader for Republican obstruction of President Obama. BTW that "shadow government" stuff is nonsense. Suck it up buttercup. He won by a thin margin in the EC and massively lost the PV. Lots of people just don't like Trump and GOP policies it has little or nothing to do with what Democrats or former President Obama are doing.

They should.

Doubt anybody will. His hearings start in March. The pressure on Democrats to cave on confirming him, especially those facing re-election in red states, will be something fierce- which will necessitate Democrats to constantly point back to GOP opposition to even holding hearings for Garland.

I wonder if any cis-(non-Transgender) men out there are upset at the ultimate implication of these laws, which basically seems to be that all cis-men and, by extension, anybody out there (including some Transgender women) who has a Penis, are all likely perverts, child molesters, and rapists and prone to invading women's spaces to harm women and young girls?
