3. Pride beams as Hillary Clinton has that twinkle in her eye

having utilized that descriptor that truly fits the cartel and followers, although lately I'm leaning towards "despicable" due to the spittle sounding and often producing onomatopoeia inherent in the middle syllable, especially when pronounced with emphasis.

13. Are you sure about that middle syllable and the onomatopoeia you implied? Please reconsider.

By slang definition: A highly offensive term referring in a derogatory manner to a Hispanic person, i.e. born or descendant of natives of Spain and/or any Spanish-speaking country or territory in Central America, South America or the Caribbean. I'm sure you didn't mean it as an insult, but still.

14. Ouch, that seems like a syllable taken out of context, would be "pic"

However, holy moly if it is ever jam-together received that way, wow, deplorable can't be twisted.
Frankly I'd long forgotten that slang term I've never uttered, but heard... from deplorable person of course.

2. Hopefully this is just the beginning of McConnell the crook.

Perhaps this will become a major issue in the campaign. And I suspect there is much more.

11. Suspect? Not me. There's plenty of evidence

of past self-serving and self-enrichment activity via use of his position in the past already. The one that stands out to me in particular is his land acquisitions immediately along and adjoining a yet at the time to be announced route for a new interstate beltway. He pocketed millions from that and learned how profitable having fingers in the DOT can be.

15. How they are not called on it by the MSM is absolutely mind numbing. It seems it's been normalized?

16. Everything has been normalized, in record time too.

Of course this was their intention from the start.

17. The lack of credible journalistic scrutiny and the obvious public dis-engagement is something

I never would have expected. ie. most people don't give a flying fuck about almost anything, and the media fawned over him and continue to do so, minimizing, or completely overlooking, the blatant damage and threat to the Constitution.

18. I know, the overall apathy it the US

is beyond frustrating. They need a good slap while being told to "Wake the fuck up!". Many people are self absorbed now compared to the past, maybe smartphones and social media have aided this change.

20. Yes! Amen what you said

We are at a point where self-absorption is toxic to our country. When I check in on my peeps in the breakroom at work no one looks up to even say hello, all pecking away on their life support phone.

24. I think you're right about the self-absorption and the apathy seems to be growing.

Or at least not going away, sadly. They don't understand that democracy is not a spectator sport, and only requires showing up a couple times a year.

22. Maybe because some of the personalities on ROF

are also associated with RT. That was a good enough reason for me to tune out.
