Do you think 45 is going to usher in a revolution?

I don't mean 1776 American Revolution, or a Civil War. I mean a French type Revolution. His budget plan, his actions toward the poor, it is going to come to a breaking point. Just what shape will it be?

Happy Not My President Day.

45 lies, he has spent as much President Obama has in travel in a year, in 1 month . He has signed more executive order in his first month than any other, some will hurt people.
And then look how Europe, and the rest of the world is looking at us.

Till we get a real leader, I will not celebrate this day as Presidents Day.

Did anyone see this in GD?

She makes it sound like the Unions should throw people out for not voting Dem.

To me, that is just not right. The Union of any type it to protect works, not be a tyrant to make people vote one way or not be protected.

With the way this interveiw sounds at times, could Joe be looking at 2020?

Published on Jan 5, 2017 As the Obama years come to a close, Vice President Joe Biden sits down with Judy Woodruff to discuss his thoughts on his tenure, the election and the future of the country. They discuss the fate of the Affordable Care Act, evidence of Russian election hacking, President-elect Trump’s critique of the intelligence community, the Obama administration’s legacy in Syria and more.

LFR's New Year's Resolution.

I have been "going" high, as Mrs. Obama would say ,for around 10 years.
No longer.

2017 will be (for me) the year of the B****.

No longer will I try to be civil with rethugs. No longer keeping a soft demeanor. I am going back a few years.

For those that remember the early years of DU, I was in Collage and a militant Yellow Dog, Liberal Democrat. But, some due to wiser members, I did learn to mellow out some.

But now, with the rethugs electing a monster, no longer can I stay mellow.

LFR will be going back to her roots. Oh, I'll remember the lessons that I have learned from other members, but that sharp edge is coming back, with a vengeance.

My voice will be loud and proud, off and on the internet. Will be involved more with the social movement. And rethugs will be in my diet for eating and spiting out.

Anyone else have any similar resolutions?

There is a song I have been listening to for the last couple of days.

Lyrics...
Angel of Darkness
Angel of Darkness
The world is in your hand
But I will fight until the end

Angel of Darkness
Angel of Darkness
Don't follow your command
But I will fight and I will stand
When darkness falls pain is all
The Angel of Darkness
Will leave behind and I will fight

The love is lost
Beauty and light
Have vanished from garden of delight
The dreams are gone
Midnight has come
The darkness is our new kingdom

Angel of Darkness
Angel of Darkness
The world is in your hand
But I will fight until the end

Angel of Darkness
Angel of Darkness
Don't follow your command
But I will fight and I will stand

Hunt goes on deep in the night
Time to pray down on your knees
You can't hide from me
Eternal the light
Until my last breath I will fight
(I will fight, I will fight, I will fight, I will fight)

Now realize
The stars they die
Darkness has fallen in paradise
But we'll be strong
And we will fight
Against the creatures of the night

Angel of Darkness
Angel of Darkness
The world is in your hand
But I will fight until the end

Angel of Darkness
Angel of Darkness
Don't follow your command
But I will fight and I will stand

This song hits home for me. For me it is as if this song was written for these dark times.

I think bushy was a boot camp for me and now is time to saddle up. We Dems need to fight. Not only for ourselves, not just for the U.S, but for the world.

This person that should never be in the position he is in . He is a threat to the world.

Many will say I'm over reacting. I say , I will remember you said that

My question is who's with me?

And he has the best conflict of interest, believe him.

Trump vineyard seeks Labor Department approval to hire foreign worker
The Washington Post

By Patricia Sullivan Virginia PoliticsDecember 22 at 4:59 PM

Federal ethics experts for former Democratic and Republican administrations warned Thursday that President-elect Donald Trump is creating a major conflict of interest by allowing his Virginia vineyard to seek special temporary visas for foreign workers.

Trump, who is president of the Charlottesville vineyard that applied this month for H2 visas for six foreign workers, will soon run the U.S. government, which determines whether to grant those visas.

“This is a powerful example of why Donald Trump needs to make a definitive break, not just with his operational interests but his ownership interests, by appointing an independent trustee to liquidate all that,” said Norm Eisen, a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution who was chief White House ethics lawyer for President Obama

Been hearing rethugs saying not supporting tRump is unpatriotic?

Remind them what Theodore Roosevelt said:

Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else.

What the Founding Father fought Against...

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
