Schiff said on Maher last nite that Rs stop him in the hall and say "Keep doing what you're doing"

Did you guys see Schiff on Bill Maher last nite? He said Rs stop him in the hall and say "Keep doing what you're doing"...he said the time for confidences is over, they have to stand up and speak out.

Are the Rs being bribed by Putin/Trump?

This week my siblings decided to buy empty pills from Amazon and fill them with something to give to my 88 year old mom. Mom is a narcissist like Trump...keeps insisting she is sick for attention...she has been this way her whole life...so this is what it has come to..pretend pills..I couldn't help but make the comparison...that both she and Trump manipulate to win...get what they want.

It is easier to give in to them to shut them up...so the Rs give in to Trump and his every loving BASE...but their payoff MUST be money...

Hell, Susan Collins has been doing the opposite of that for years. She says how 'disappointed' she is in public, but always votes the party line.



Groucho Marx was right: "Sincerity. Once you can fake that you've got it made." Of course, he was talking about acting, but that's about all we gotten from Repubs for decades now, false faces and acting.

I find this pretty damn scary. No one should do that to anyone. And what DID they put in them?

It's time to fall on their swords for the sake of the Republic and risk being primaried or even the worst fate imaginable, a mean tweet.

Low-THC hemp extracts and whole flowers cannot intoxicate one in the slightest, nor (like all cannabis) will they cause any harm at all. Your profile does not say where you are located, but I hope your state reps catch up to reality. A plant-based medicine that reduces inflammation is the last thing we need to ban in this day and age...

I'll pm you the store website I get it from. My son first took me to the store in Fitchburg, now I just go to the one in Sun Prairie and Tim will be opening a new store on the Eastside sometime this summer.

But how can you know that an 88 year old isn't actually feeling sick? Does her doctor approve of giving her placebos?

she is healthy as a horse...in the 1990s she decided to go anorexic...she saw 62 docs in 7 moths...all told her Harriet, nothing is wrong with you...then she'd traipse to another...so folks started to notice when she got to 85 pounds...she would tell them she had cancer or Parkinsons...outright lies....she wanted a legit label...

She decided to live in a wheelchair about 9 years ago for attention....give up walking to get attention..it boggles my mind..of course she will have some arthritis, normal old folks' stuff....

Have you ever known anyone who LOVES to be miserable...that is Harriet...she used to drink...not anymore..all the meds she insists on knock her out...

I had a narcissistic parent (but not hypochondriacal, too) and I wasn't living close. It was hard enough just dealing over the phone and on occasional visits.
