About Me

Married, 2 kids a boy and a girl. Two dogs, both boxers, a cat that I'm pretty sure is at least part maine coon..who knows. I found him in my driveway freezing and starving. I enjoy reading, music, I watch entirely too much tv and Republicans make me sick. I think family is the most important thing. Anything else you wanna know, just ask. :-)

Question about the roll call vote--what time

will it be done? Not sure if there's a definite time.

I don't want to miss it.

Thanks in advance.

SHAUN KING: To stop Donald Trump, I’ll be voting for Hillary Clinton

Like millions of supporters of Bernie Sanders, I have not quite gotten over his loss to Hillary Clinton. I didn't expect it to sting this bad, but for me, Bernie wasn't just another politician or candidate, but a rare leader who means what he says, keeps his word and takes bold risks. I feel like Bernie was a game changer.


In the end, though, Bernie lost on votes. I won't quite say he lost "fair and square" — because everything wasn't fair or square, but I am convinced, as are my closest friends in his campaign, that if everything was fair and square, Bernie still would've lost to Hillary. If everything was fair and square, Bernie would've still been blown out in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Louisiana, Florida, Mississippi and Texas. Hillary crushed Bernie in the Deep South and the difference in delegates can be found there. It wasn't even close in those states. Hillary's ties there paid off and the Sanders campaign struggled to figure out how to resonate in meaningful ways in most of those states. Had Bernie tied or narrowly lost to Hillary in those places, he might be our nominee right now. That's not what happened.


I have studied Donald Trump for over a year now. I've written more articles about him, his bigotry, his sexism, his xenophobia, and the terrible policy ideas he has that flow out of those things than almost any writer in the country. I believe he is a racist. I believe he is a white supremacist bigot. I believe he is a phony and a fraud. I believe he is a con artist. I believe he is a man of the lowest moral character. I believe he is a stone cold liar.


Most of all, though, I believe Donald Trump poses a dangerous threat to three particular groups of people that I love — immigrants, Muslims and the Black Lives Matter movement. To be clear, I am not saying that Hillary Clinton is a savior or hero to those three groups, but what Donald Trump means to them is substantively and significantly worse.


Lastly, I believe that President Donald Trump would pose a grave threat to the safety and security of the Black Lives Matter Movement and all of us who are in it. Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee, who was a featured speaker at the Republican National Convention, has called us "scum" and "terrorists." Trump may very well empower Sheriff Clarke to serve in his cabinet. Beyond that, though, Trump himself, during his speech at the convention and elsewhere, has alluded to restoring "law and order" in a way that suggests his intentions are to crackdown on protestors and dissenting voices. I fully believe that Donald Trump would be a J. Edgar Hoover type for the Black Lives Matter Movement. I would fear for my own safety and the safety of my brothers and sisters in the movement.


Chuck Todd said he was at the republicans

convention last week. He was at the '08 convention and this is worse than both of them.

I'm going to have to turn it off. I can't watch this.

Trump On Cruz: The RNC Crowd Would've 'Ripped Him Off The Stage'

Donald Trump surmised that the crowd at the Republican National Convention would've "ripped" Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) off the stage had he not entered when he did.

Trump reportedly stated on Showtime's "The Circus," that he wish he had waited to enter the arena because Cruz would've been booed off the stage. Cruz took the stage at the RNC, asking the audience to "vote your conscience," but not endorsing Trump.

"I walked in and the arena went crazy," Trump said, as flagged by Politico. "Because there's great unity in the Republican Party, and people don't know it. Had I not walked in, I think that audience would have ripped him off the stage. I think I did him a big favor."

Trump got to read the speech beforehand, but thought it wasn't "very good." Trump said he thought it would've been a bigger deal to kick him out of the speaking lineup, and that it didn't make a big different to have his endorsement.


Trump has a God complex. Only HE can save us. He saved Cruz. and so on.

White supremacist tweet appears on GOP convention screens

The Republican National Convention on Thursday night showcased a tweet from a white supremacist account during Donald Trump's acceptance speech for the GOP presidential nomination.

The tweet appeared on four large screens in the Quicken Loans Arena during Trump's speech as part of a series of tweets that were highlighted and curated by the Republican National Convention, according to Time.

"'Tonight I'm with you, I will fight for you, and I will WIN for you!' - Donald J Trump. It's time to start WINNING again!#TrumpIsWithYou," the account, called @Western_Triumph, tweeted Thursday, quoting a line from Trump's speech.

The user behind the account describes themself as "#AltRight," "#ProWhite" and a "#RaceRealist" in the account's bio.

In a tweet Friday morning, @Western_Triump called desegregation a disaster.

"Everyone needs a place of their own. Stop the hate: Separate!

Gee, I sure hope so!
Desegregation was a disaster. Everyone needs a place of their own.

I'm not thrilled about Kaine

possibly being the VP choice.

I don't agree with some of what he stands for.

But since we're overdosing on VP's and how important they are. I'll take Kaine's record over Pence's record all day long.

**If** we're really talking about how important Veeps are.

s/n let's not forget Trump says he plans to delegate a lot of duties to his Veep. Pence! No thank you!
