I got to admit

I'm a bit overwhelmed trying to keep track of all of the presidents men/women crimes or violations that have occurred this far. The geek in me would love to see a grid with all of the names listed on the left with all of the crimes/ violations running left to right across the top. (Think of an excel spreadsheet) list in the appropriate field the date the act was incurred and the status - update as convictions start coming in (one can dream). At a minimum it would serve as a good tracking system.

I wouldn't even know where to begin- does anyone know if this exists? Or want to take a shot at it?

Is there a. App for this😀

Don't want to be offensive but

I haven't seen anything or heard anything from pig boy aka Limbaugh lately. Just curious - where does he stand on his president?

So......

What's next? I feel like we are in the catbird seat but we are not completely using it to our advantage. Are we missing an opportunity yet again?

Let's move to impeach!

Certified news

Here's an idea that is long overdue and needed more than ever.

Two things that can be done to counter fake news...

1) news ratings- not what you think. Similar to how restaurants are ranked based on inspections, assign a rating to the news source I.e. A, B, C, F

2) use the rating and research based on validity I.e. Snopes, etc to certify the story.

3) trend over time and let the consumer weed out the liers.

Thoughts?

Who cares that Russia was involved in electing the president*

To be honest, most of the younger generation does not know who Putin is and whT he represents.

I don't get the sense that they care and I bet my bottom dollar that the republicans polled this and felt that it was a good gamble.

I think that we collectively are going at this wrong. We should be more explicit- the Trump was helped behind the scenes by the president of Russia - an evil person who killed people he disagreed with- doesn't that scare you? Etc.

The message has to go deeper than Russia or Putin for any one to care.

Not sure if this was already done, if not

Let's play a 'what if' game.

What if the shoe was on the other foot. Say HC received assistance from Russia and the Dems played the same suppression games.

What would the republicans be doing right now.... and have a come we Dems are not doing the same thing?

Voters, non-voters are going

To rue the day they either voted or there lack of participation allowed do the election of Trump.

Nothing good will come from this. There will be plenty of pain to share.

Was reading the news and they were looking for allowing women to be included in the draft- not god timing especially with the shitstorm that may come our way.

Trying to stay positive but it is tough.

Be on the look out

We are venturing in a "uncharted" territory. Be expecting more hacks, more infighting, more disruption. No one on the other side wants a recount- and they have a lot of money and Russia on there side- just saying, be suspicious be aware. That is all.

Too much rope

My thoughts are that the next few years will play out similar to the WBush years- probably worse. The republicans will tarnish themselves far worse than they already have over the years.

The overreach will get unbearable and downright ugly for awhile and we will not recover for years, especially with the Supreme Court, but I believe in karma and the republicans have a lot of ill will coming there way.

Maybe we will recover some loss during the midterms- maybe it will be so bad that we change the tide on midterm elections and we gain more seats than republicans.

Not much we can do to them for now but they probably won't need our help doing themselves in. At least, I can hope.

Roger Water lyrics... Too much rope (replace species with political party)
... Give any one species too much rope
And they'll fuck it up...



Hmm

I spoke with a strong supporter of Trump today who said that he is acutely aware of everything that trump said and still stands behind him.

My response was that it tells me more about you then Trump by your continued support.

My lasting thought was that his supporters are starting to be the minority and are starting to be self aware.

This is a good thing- they may not be able to hang on for much longer with this continuos stream release of news.

Let me add, self awareness can be a bitch 😳
