  2. I don't see Bernie approving of Russia's involvement in the election in any way. Try again. Do you deny that the DNC establishment preferred HRC? Do you deny that their preference showed every step of the way? I don't blame them. The RNC preferred Cruz or Rubio to Trump. Did everything to defeat him. And failed. The DNC succeeded in their mission. While the RNC failed. But ultimately the RNC's failure gave them complete and total ownership of our government.
  3. There's an argument that it will make things worse. They're going to exercise the "nuclear" option. Gorsuch was conservative. But more center compared to Scalia. Confirming him would not have changed the composition of SCOTUS. NOT confirming him has changed the rules of law for the Senate. Which will live forever.
  4. I guess as long as Clinton supporters continue to blame Bernie supporters for her loss. I'm ready to move on as well. But I continue to hear how Bernie's campaign crippled HRC and caused her loss. No. We don't. But if something has been introduced multiple times and never gained traction, is it a poorer concept if an old white Jewish guy introduces it and it breathes?

  6. One could reasonably ask what it feels like to be Catholic and hear the Pope openly condemn your proposed policies.
  7. "This proposed budget isn't extreme. Reagan's proposed budget in 1981 was extreme. This budget is short-sighted, cruel to the point of being sadistic, stupid to the point of pure philistinism, and shot through with the absolute and fundamentalist religious conviction that the only true functions of government are the ones that involve guns, and that the only true purpose of government is to serve the rich." http://www.esquire.com/news-politics/politics/news/a53897/trump-budget-meals-wheels/?src=socialflowFB
  8. Of course Snoop shouldn't have. But the fact that the same people gasping in outrage over this never complained when President Obama was lynched in effigy many times just punctuates their unrivaled hypocrisy. This was well well said and expresses my "feelings" although this wasn't my moment. http://johnpavlovitz.com/2017/03/15/62-million-reasons-im-not-the-same-anymore/
  9. It's a mistake to lump all Bernie supporters together. I think all politicians are corrupted. HRC's close association with Wall Street disturbed me tremendously. But as the Senator from New York it made sense. I also thought she was too hawkish and her support for the invasion of Iraq was troublesome to me. Trump scared me enough that I voted for her anyway. I didn't agree with NAFTA and TPP either. Or the Iran nuclear deal. But I still supported President Obama. now we have this, and I'm genuinely terrified. http://www.esquire.com/news-politics/politics/news/a53848/trump-executive-order-reorganization/

  11. Politics, sad, corrupt. The EVIL Koch bros run the GOP. NOTHING TO BE PROUD OF. https://thecorrespondent.com/6286/if-shell-knew-climate-change-was-dire-25-years-ago-why-still-business-as-usual-today/692773774-4d15b476 owned by oil and gas and the tobacco industry before that. We think we're divided now? Wait until we don't have safe drinking water for everybody and folks like GregNYC have all the guns and ammunition. They're nucking fruts and they're armed. It's kind of funny, only not. I have a dear friend who disregards climate science but she and her family are arming themselves to the teeth in case THE WALKING DEAD scenario actually comes to pass. And at 60 years old, I just bought my first gun. I hate them. I really don't want to live in a world that is so crazy I need to fear my neighbors, but I've come to see that my orange filth supporting neighbors have guns and they're frocking insane. It doesn't make sense to let the mentally ill have all the guns.
  12. I'm not clever enough to know whether the GOP is merely a study in hypocrisy or the prime example of irony. If I get this correctly, they just introduced a healthcare bill that eliminates coverage for mental Health services that affects millions of patients. That happened within a couple of weeks of The Orange Smear In America's Underpants rescinding President Obama's executive order denying the mentally ill from purchasing guns. Soooooooo. Don't treat the mentally ill. Protect their right to purchase AR 15s.
  13. https://mobile.twitter.com/cavalorn/status/654934442549620736 I do feel sorry for her. In a way it's like blaming a homeless person for not knowing how to balance a checkbook. For whatever reason she's never engaged. Suddenly she's confronted with a singular issue that motivated her to engage for the first time. You never know what you don't know. But im insanely gratified that she's suffering the consequences of her decision. Accountability is really big for conservatives. It's good they have to suffer as well.
  14. As would Bernie. But you are so right. HRC was at the forefront long before anyone else was committed to reforming healthcare.
  15. It doesn't seem so. It's based on actual counties. Keeping in mind that densely populated counties show up the same as sparsely populated ones. The article was mostly about how polarized voting has become. The more interesting graph was about how that's shifted over time. "More than 61 percent of voters cast ballots in counties that gave either Clinton or Trump at least 60 percent of the major-party vote last November. That’s up from 50 percent of voters who lived in such counties in 2012 and 39 percent in 1992 — an accelerating trend that confirms that America’s political fabric, geographically, is tearing apart."
