There is no way to reconcile the TPP with helping working Americans

The TPP is yet another awful assault against the 99% by the wealthy and their paid help in Congress and the White House. It is simply inconsistent with Democratic values.

If Democrats want voters to vote for them, they should stop these attacks. And you Democratic voters who encourage and/or enable those who exult in this garbage need to think about what you're doing to our country: you are helping to create more despair, hunger, and homelessness. Please reconsider.

Will you people stop whining about the TPP already?

Last time I checked, it was secret, so you can't possibly know what's in it.

Besides, it's still being negotiated. They're saving the best parts for last.

And if it's not perfect, we can improve it later.

Why don't you people wait until it's passed and you've seen what we've actually done to you before complaining?

Why is it so very important to Clinton supporters that

everyone else believe that nobody else could possibly run and win the Democratic nomination?

So many threads are the same, basically:

Her name is Hillary, candidate of candidates:
Look on her works, ye Proles, and despair!

It's at the point where criticism of Hillary or praise for a potential Democratic opponent is labeled as subversive "ratfucking" by many in that crowd - and this is even tolerated (usually) on DU.

"The other kids did it too"

We've been teaching our teenager, for more than a decade, that this is not an excuse. My guess is that most other parents do the same.

Why is this a bull@$%& excuse for child's behavior, but perfectly acceptable for a national political figure?

Another thing I'll just never understand, I suppose.

Reuters: Democratic support for Hillary drops 15 points since February

Many Democrats want independent Clinton email probe: Reuters/Ipsos poll

Support for Clinton's candidacy has dropped about 15 percentage points since mid-February among Democrats, with as few as 45 percent saying they would support her in the last week, according to a Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll. Support from Democrats likely to vote in the party nominating contests has dropped only slightly less, to a low in the mid-50s over the same period.

Even Democrats who said they were not personally swayed one way or another by the email flap said that Clinton could fare worse because of it, if and when she launches her presidential campaign, a separate Reuters/Ipsos poll showed.

The polling showed that nearly half of Democratic respondents - 46 percent - agreed there should be an independent review of all of Clinton's emails to ensure she turned over everything that is work-related.

Personally, I think if we vote the same people back into office

we'll get better results than we got before.

No, really

Good night.

The Hard Left simply doesn't realize how damned difficult it is

to carry two cell phones.

Let's get real for a moment: because the Hard Left doesn't know enough to do pragmatic favors for Jamie, Lloyd, and the other shrewd businessmen who love their country, they're usually broke and could never afford two cell phones.

Well, as a person who can afford two cell phones, let me tell you: carrying two cell phones is damned difficult work. (No, having your assistant carry them doesn't make it any easier, nice try.)

So, Moonbats, until you've walked a mile in another woman's (beautifully-crafted!) shoes, stop being Republicans. Just pipe down and let the pros handle this.

Tehran Tom's political career is over

Remember when Republicans shut down the government last year, and it was an utter fiasco for them? Most Americans were furious at that stunt, and Republicans ended up totally capitulating?

Well, I haven't been watching the news for some months, but I'm guessing that Republicans must have paid dearly at the ballot box last November. And the lunatic ringleader of that collosal @#$& up, a Canadian-born fellow IIRC, has probably never been heard from again. LOL, people once spoke of him as a Presidential contender.

I damned well AM ...

I am a Liberal, and am damned proud to be labeled as such.

By all means, bludgeon me with it; it hurts so good!

Flaming, screaming, confessed Liberal.
Damn! You bet!
