Is Gorsuch dissembling?

Gorsuch says he has no knowledge of Supreme Court justices comporting with special interests who have cases pending before the court. Seriously?? Hes not aware of circumstances that have been part of the public conversation, especially since the Citizens United decision? Really, sir? REALLY???

Reuters is reporting (accdg. to Maddow)

that Tillerson is planning to skip the NATO meeting next month, but will make time to visit Moscow next month.

Really. The only question is, why doesn't he just defect and get it over with?


Unbefuckingdamnlievable.

Now THIS is as it should be.

Trump is rallying his base, and only Fox is showing it. Neither CNN nor MSNBC is showing it, not even a split-screen. About damned time.

Remind me: What is it that rolls downhill?

A few days ago I wrote about my concerns about some negative impacts of the new president and his complicit Congress. http://www.democraticunderground.com/10028804568

Well, it continues. I just got a call from the agency that provides housekeeping help for those tasks I can no longer perform (vacuuming, scrubbing the floor, etc.); they've been sending someone for two hours, twice a month. Their funding has been cut. They are now only allowed to send someone once a month.

I thought she was going to cry as she was telling me this, and I told her that I understand that this isn't her doing; I also told her about what happened with SNAP and what the housing office intimated. She said that her brother is in circumstances almost identical to mine, she's scared for him.

Some days it's just no fun to reside at the bottom of the hill.

Given what's coming out of the Comey hearing

Given what's coming out of the Comey hearing, shouldn't we be exercising extreme caution?

When the head of state is under a growing dark cloud of suspicion, his appointees are also under that cloud. Can we request that confirmation hearings be suspended?

Q Link ...?

It's for the free phones for low income people. I have one through another service, but it's tiny and I'm totally not able to use the texting function. Q Link is offering free Smart phones, but it sounds a bit too good to be true, and I haven't been able to find any info/reports from people who have used this service.

Anyone here have knowledge or experience with them?
