So what is the deal with Republicans on the Hill?

The timing is clear, the ink on the ballots aren`t even dry. "Wait until after the election Mr. President, and we won't do anything if you (get rid of Sessions?) (fire Meuller?) (pardon everyone?)(arrest Hillary Clinton?)"

How far did this agreement go?

Standing in a long line.

Standing in a long line of voters in Weston, Florida to vote. This is a very liberal District. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is our Congresswoman. I take this as a good sign.

Zombie Apocalypse

The theme of the zombie movies/shows is always the same - mindless, soul-less, living dead voraciously killing those who have not yet died and either devouring them or making them Zombies as well.

We could be seeing the beginning of the realization of that metaphor with angry, soul-less people unleashed on society, out to kill the vibrant, living force that has impelled democratic advances worldwide. Three such Zombies have appeared in the U.S. in the last week, pursuing the living and coaxing out more Zombies from the dark shadows of fear and a moral void.

Don't kid yourself, with leaders in denial, or worse, injecting the disease into victims themselves, this could become apocalyptic faster than anyone ever imagined.

Think about it, Kavanaugh's history of assault works for the Republicans...

A sexual predator is the ideal candidate for the Republicans to choose to rule on a woman's right to autonomy over her own body.

Going to wear it everywhere just to piss right wingers off.

Pardoning Cohen won't help Trump

Cohen has stated, under oath, that he violated campaign laws "in coordination with, and at the direction of" the candidate. So now he is on record, under oath stating that Trump is guilty of conspiring to violate the law, and can be called to testify. Any testimony he gives has to be consistent with that statement, or a whole new criminal proceeding can be started for perjury (a new crime on top of what is now a criminal history).

This is better than cooperation in some ways because he is now on record as a witness, not as an informant.

Edit: Don't forget Cohen had an office in Trump Tower and worked almost exclusively for him - it will be hard for Trump to distance himself from Cohen.

"In coordination with, and at the direction of the Candidate"

BOOM!

Is gun control a basic tenet of Democratic ideals?

I guess the most surprising thing to me when joining this site was the number of members who come out against any gun control beyond mere background checks. I had always thought gun control was a basic belief of any liberalism. I always thought liberals conditioned the 2nd Amendment on it's whole language, i.e., tied to a "well regulated militia," something we don't need because we have standing armed forces.

Are the posters on here who follow NRA reasoning real liberals? I see the same people come out to argue against gun control, but I don't see them posting on other topics. Are there people who are against the assault weapons ban (or argue it is not feasible) ever people who do not own a weapon that could fall under such a ban?

Personally I think gun control should be just a strong plank in the Party's platform as freedom of choice and worker's rights. Do most agree?
