Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC.. with all the talking heads ..

Iíve waited for an experienced n no drama point of view from him n his guests. There are a few good hosts on that channel but I somehow gravitate to his segments/show. Heís on later at night so he has the time to get facts n always compares the issue w/ history. Like Rachel. Iím not gonna get excited or fret.. thereís nothing we can do but arm chair debate. Having said that.. Iím learning a lot about the law n how the Constitution is our DNA.. if I can make some kind of relevance. I think weíre gonna be just fine.. not even tfg n his cult can shake us n evade our laws n justice. All this is just my opinion

2. Well, democracy held through the last election.

Maybe it seemed like by the hair of its chinny-chin-chin, but it HELD.

We were NOT sunk to the bottom of a red sea of Republican votes. We kept hold of the Senate and could even win another Senate seat next month, and were only edged out in the House.

And one of the MAJOR takeaways was the right to choose, which the GOP was steering toward the rocks. That didnít work for them either.

And we canít ease up now. We have to stay strong and build on what we know works. Keep on standing with women, and womenís rights. Just donít forget to promote that. As long as the bad guys keep gunning for our rights, we HAVE TO remain vigilant, and battle-ready.

Much as I wish it, the bad guys wonít go away, or concede defeat even when itís about to bite their heads off.

3. I so agree. I'm not gonna fret. I'm gonna fight as long as I can..

Women are more than half the population of this country n weíre so under served n represented. I know itís gonna be a bumpy ride but if this Special Council can come to the same conclusion as most of us agree, this country can be rid of this hate n stalemate n move on to a more perfect union as is our responsibility to the Constitution. Iím not naive..itís not gonna be pretty
