If the Emoluments clause doesn't matter then the date of certification

of the election doesn't matter. Or actually any federal law or Constitutional law doesn't matter. Trump is literally getting away with murder while weak kneed politicians stand by and watch. Right now it feels like our country has gone to shit.

Well. It has.

Krushchev bangs his shoe and shouts in Russian, "We will bury you!" Well?

Will they? is it too late to dig America out of the grave? Or should we fight to stay alive.
So many Americans have died to keep the idea of America alive. Should we just forget why they are dead?
Or should we remember?

WP:Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House


The obvious glossing over of the Comey excuse and the

Russian connection to our democratic election is extremely troubling. No. Urgently troubling! The so called
protectors of our nation and it's treasury should
have their damn troubling hair on fire.

Comey would not confirm Russian involvement in hacking the DNC because he was afraid of influencing the election. But he influenced it by sending that, well timed, well placed Republican talking point email evidence letter to right wing congressmen knowing it would be leaked.
Neither Comey nor Putin are dumb. But they're playing us for dumb. It has been verified by over a dozen security agencies that the Russians are involved in the DNC "only" hacking.
I'd bet my grandmother's new draws that Manafort
knows Comey and knows him well. Comey is a Republican, though it is reported he is now independent. Manafort worked for a Republican but left because his Russian connection was getting to hot to handle.
This is subversive and ideologically driven.
Could Comey himself not see the coincidentally circumstancial evidence of keeping the Russians safe from discovery? After the election it's too late. But Trump will help Russia bury us for free.

I love tacos but.....

Have you notice how the same propaganda that's being used against Mexico is being used used against the U.S. by the Trump campaign?

The propaganda: Mexico is a crime ridden country.

Same propaganda: The US is a crime ridden country.

Also the same message that He is the Savior. By making America great again and saving Mexico from itself by building the new Berlin Wall. (Hmmmm. Does Russia really have some influence on Trump?)

That was the main message this surrogate for 'His Majesty of Orangeness' tried to communicate before he mentioned taco trucks on every corner.
I think Tacos will mean curtains for Don the Con.

There could be very few to ruin anything if the "Down Ticket" loses. Trump is absolutely destroying

the GOP. The smart ones will either head to the hills or head out to support GOP candidates who are losing in the polls.
The Orange Burgermeister could cause a schism in the Republican party resulting in an offshoot party with current GOP
leaders creating a different kind of GOP. It's happened before. In a slightly different way. The Whigs and Tories thing.
The Lincoln Republican party that was essentially the current Democratic party in their beliefs. Even the Democratic party
went through a redemption when the Civil rights laws were passed in the 60's. That's why I say, 'You show me a racist and I'll show you a Republican.' That doesn't mean all Republicans are racist. It's just that I know of no Democrats who are racist. There could be, but, considering the KKK feel redeemed because they are accepted by the leader of the Republican party for President, I don't think so.

The Trump trope I hear from talking news heads that

'Trump is tapping into the anger of the people' is very deceptive or downright wrong. I call it the "You know? (fill in the blank) syndrome. For example. You know? Mexicans are stealing our jobs and raping our women. You know? Politicians in Washington are stupid. You know? You know? I think that is why Trump can be equated with Hitler, Mussolini and many other dictators throughout history who rose to power. They cause people, who do very little real "thinking" or are "lazy thinkers" or do not contemplate or think at all, to believe anything. It's simply a tool used to create a foundation and avenue to power. You can call it fear mongering, which it is, but I think it's different than that. In the hands of a narcissistic sociopath it's downright dangerous.

Trump is using the questions we all have about society and twisting them in a way that make the "less decerning" believe what he wants them to believe. He justifies his ends using any means. The Talking News Heads need to start telling the truth. Saying that Trump is creating anger. Not tapping into it. Hitler convinced the German populace that Jews were the cause of all their problems. Financially and socially. It's sad that so many can be led to the edge of anger. I fear many will actually take the dark leap into destruction.

Representative William Lacy Clay, Democrat 1st district

St Louis, Missouri is the only person speaking the truth at the Flint water hearings on the hill today. I'm watching C-SPAN 3 and Republicans are being sarcastic and hypocritical with their questions. Of course I would expect nothing less. Mr. Clay's questions and statements should be broadcast all over the country on every Network. He quoted Donald Trump and Ted Cruz regarding their statements about eliminating the EPA. During the hearing Republicans say the EPA should have done more yet they call for less regulation and are calling for their the EPA's elimination. I'm apoplectic. This is incredible. Thank you Representative Clay!

Fuck it! I'm sick of pro gun arguments and advocates.

Gun rights advocates have had their say and their way. I know there are those who do ask, Well what would you specifically do? Here is one specific. Current gun laws have been shot full of holes by the gun manufacturer's lobby called the NRA that they should be a classification of Swiss cheese. There should be penalties for a seller who does not perform a background check. Cars are registered and so should guns be registered so that private sales would have to include a trip to the county clerk to gain a new title to the gun. Teeth. Sharp teeth in gun laws are needed. We are not protecting ourselves from our own government by owning weapons. The 2nd Amendment was written so everyone would have a musket available to protect them from a "foreign" invasion during the 1700s. This is 2015.

Some say only criminals will have guns if we pass new gun laws. I say it is criminal what is accepted as gun laws in our country. Too bad you cannot ask the dead what they think.

Has anyone seen this article in USA Today that contains a interview with Charles Koch?

I happened to read this while at my local union office this afternoon. It made my damn blood boil. What an arrogant asshole! I don't care what his damn politics are. One rich prick should not decide the direction of the country. The direction of the country should be decided by individuals coming together and voting for the truth. Not what some dried up curmudgeon who hates the spotlight wants. His vote should be ONE. As in one of the 300 million or so souls in this country. Not multiplied by how many dollars he has. Citizens United is the modern Jim Crow law turned upside down. I call it Koch Crow because. As in he needs to eat his. He wants to suppress the middle class and poor by saying they have no voice and the only voice that matters is his. If he is receiving threats of some kind from extremists he has brought it on himself.

"We are doing all of this to make more money?" Koch said of charges that his drive to limit government's power will increase his bottom line. "I mean, that is so ludicrous."
"I don't know how they can say that with a straight face," he said. "We oppose as many or more things that would benefit us than would hurt us," he said, ticking off potential losses at his Minnesota oil refinery if the Keystone XL pipeline he supports is constructed and his opposition to the Export-Import Bank, whose subsidies aiding U.S. companies he has decried as corporate welfare.......Charles Koch said this week that only about a third of that will be spent on electoral politics. The political network he and his brother oversee also is considering wading into the Republican presidential primary for the first time and providing financial support to as many as five candidates who have a "positive message" and the ability to prevail in the 2016 general election. That move could drive the Republican field closer to the Kochs and their libertarian positions, which often sit at odds with GOP's business-friendly and socially conservative wings.


Who decides "how" we should think?

Not "what" we should think. What we think or what we should think could be rebellious against the accepted norm. The corporations and the Mensa Maniacals who promote "how" we should think promote the degradation of societies they deem sub-human because it generates profits and satisfies their ego's and superior attitudes and feelings of entitlement. We do not need a world run by idiots but as inhabitants of the Earth we do need to rethink what is acceptable in today's society as human beings who long ago evolved past the Pre CroMagnon period.
