After twenty-six weeks

Just a little check to see where we are at right now. 45 has been in office for twenty-six weeks now. It seems like twenty-six years. And what do we have?
A pile of Executive Orders ( however many that still need to be enacted upon, I do not know )
Two cabinet members gone ( seems like you need to put in a revolving door with all of the people coming in and going out )
One FBI Director gone

Repeal of Obamacare bogged down like it was caught in one of them sinkholes
Tax Reform Only in a wet dream that 45 might have, if he has them
National Deficit Only 46 can do that, and a Democrat this time
Draining the swamp Is 45 really that smart enough that he can find the plug to pull it, or is there more than one plug

I miss Barack Obama
I miss Bill Clinton
I miss Jimmy Carter

Mark Cuban

I think it was last March that Mark Cuban. Owner of the NBA Dallas Mavericks said that 45 has no command, leadership, or management skills. And he is supposed to run companies without any of that. Bizarre.

Manure Spreader

After two years of listening to 45. Pre and Post Inauguration, I think I have finally heard the statement out of his mouth that might top everything else.
“The Republicans are not going to own an Obamacare fail”. Somebody might need to inform him that the Republicans control The White House, House, and Senate. With that kind of control they still have problems getting the repeal and replace done.

Is he that much of an outsider that he does not realize what is right in front of his face. The American public does not want Right Wing Healthcare. We saw that in the people that mobbed Town hall meetings during the initial House vote on the Paul Ryan Healthcare version. That version I assume is probably the one that Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan tried to get through in their failed 2012 Election bid.

To sum it up the Republicans are now totally irresponsible. That makes me feel safe and secure here.

And now for something completely different

With apologies to Bob Dylan, folk music artists, folk music fans, and maybe even some flower children


How many things can a man do wrong
Before we say he has gone too far?
How many times can a man repeat a wrong
over and over before we call it bizarre?

How many lives can a man
disrupt before we take a stand?
How many seas can a man pollute
before we say not in our land?
How many times will we let the insults fly
Before they’re forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is swingin' in the wind
The answer is swingin' in the wind

How many years can a criminal empire exist
Before everyone is tried and sent to jail?
How many times must we keep seeing this
Before honesty and truth prevail?
How many times can the justice system turn its head
And pretend that it just doesn’t see – the answer
The answer, my friend, is swingin' in the wind
The answer is swingin' in the wind

How many times can a man look up
Before he sees the sky?
How many ears must one person have
Before he can hear people cry?
And how many deaths will it take 'till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friends, is swingin' in the wind
The answer is swingin' in the wind
Oh, the answer, my friends, is swingin' in the wind
The answer is swingin' in the wind

Ann Coulter

This is something that I feel I need to post. It is a bit of a long story, so bear with me. During the George W. Bush presidency the Canadian television network CBC did interviews with Bill O’Reilly and Ann Coulter. Coulter was asked why the United States was treating Canada with disdain because the Canadians did not want to enter the war effort in Iraq. Coulter responded by saying that Canada sent troops in WWI, WWII, and The Korean War. The interview went on with Coulter saying that Canada had troops in the United States war effort in Vietnam. The interviewer objected saying “No, Canada did not send any troops to Vietnam”. Coulter was dumbfounded and said that she would have to look that up and recheck her facts.
This was alright with me. You make a mistake, you correct it. Nothing of the kind with Coulter. She wound up talking about that Canadian “Dudley DoRight” interviewer. Are you kidding me? She went out there and said that about an interviewer that was smart enough to fill her in on a misconception of hers. It was also that classic politician brush off move of “I will have to recheck my facts”. This is what makes my blood boil. This woman writes a column, books, and goes on speaking tours. She sits on top of the Right Wing prestige ladder. She can not be bothered to admit a misconception. That would be a black marl on her reputation. We do not want any black marks on her reputation. Perish the thought.
Those pictures that she took on the Delta flight and the people in the seats that she says were supposed to be hers. That is bad karma coming down on top of her. I think it was a couple of months into 45 administration that she gave him a rating of A+++. Well, you know how much that rating is worth. Absolutely nothing. Zero. I believe you can take Coulter and Kellyanne Conway, box them up together, and sell them on a Clearance Sale. They are taking up way too much valuable store shelf space.

Two days

I joined this website two days ago. Within the time of posting, replying, and starting discussion threads I have gotten more out of it than over two years of watching television and looking on the internet about the election. This is a great website.

Hello Everybody

I would very much like to introduce myself as a new member of DU. I would welcome any suggestions in navigating through the posts on this website.
Thanks for having me

A line of BS

I just joined this website here. I got so nauseated from scanning through the right wing websites. All of the double talk and spin
“45 and the health care plan. Yes we will push that through.”
“45 Junior and this Russian meeting thing is all an illusion.”

I had to come here for common sense and straight talk. Somebody please tell me that the problematic idiocy I see from 45, his administration and just about every other Republican in Washington is real and not my imagination.
