    One step closer to fascism. I don't how see how the Republicans won't rule this country for next 2 or 3 generations if not longer. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/11/21/technology/fcc-net-neutrality.html?mtrref=www.google.com&gwh=09C944617D7EF5D71663E6DF837B306A&gwt=pay&referer=https://t.co/IeXiBH8YFo?amp=1

    The elimination of deductions for adopted parents is to curb foreign adoptions.

    All of this is why I am seriously contemplating leaving the USA. I didn't even consider it during the GWB years when some people were talking about moving to Canada but if Trump gets 2nd term ( which I believe he is ), I have to go. I don't want to live under a theocratoc, corporate-police state ran by a tyrant.

    Ohio House of Representatives Ohio state legislator Wes Goodman (R) has resigned after admitting he was busted having sex with a man in his office. The married conservative Ohio state lawmaker was known for his anti-LGBTQ stances. House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger (R) said he spoke to Goodman after learning of the allegations and the now-former representative admitted to having consensual sex with the man in his Riffe Center office. “I was alerted to details yesterday afternoon regarding his involvement in inappropriate behavior related to his state office,” Rosenberger said in a statement to the Columbus Dispatch. “I met with him later in the day where he acknowledged and confirmed the allegations. It became clear that his resignation was the most appropriate course of action for him, his family, the constituents of the 87th House District and this institution.” Goodman resigned after the meeting citing “inappropriate conduct.” No charges of sexual harassment will be brought since the sex was consensual and the man was not a staffer or legislator. “We all bring our own struggles and our own trials into public life. That has been true for me, and I sincerely regret that my actions and choices have kept me from serving my constituents and our state in a way that reflects the best ideals of public service,” he said in a statement. “For those whom I have let down, I’m sorry. As I move onto the next chapter of my life, I sincerely ask for privacy for myself, my family, and my friends.” On Twitter, Goodman described himself as “Christian. American. Conservative. Republican.” Several GOP insiders have intimated that there is video of the encounter filmed inside Goodman’s office, but the speaker’s spokesperson denied that allegation. https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2017/11/family-values-legislator-quits-caught-sex-man-office/ Just another conservative hypocrite.

    So it begins it or continues. https://mobile.twitter.com/LeeannTweeden/status/931176738586890241

    So what is Trumpism? Nationalism? Hatred of immigrants? A return of the racial hierarchy of the 1950's? Ignoring the rest of the world while focusing only on America? Making sure the rich prosper through tax cuts? The world is a rapidly changing place. The US enjoyed a unique position as the World's strongest power from 1945 until now. The world has seen amazing gains in reducing poverty and disease. You can't just bury your head in the sand and assume that continues. I will give you an example. Last week GM announced that they would be moving toward an all electric vehicle fleet. That decision is not driven by the US market. It's driven by the Chinese market, which is twice the size of United States market. You can't put the genie back in the bottle where a mostly white American society ruled the World

    Many members from Lipstick Alley a predominantly black women website, has often said feminism was never for WOC, and that some white women were complicit when it came to white patriarchy and racism.

    Trump and the GOPers need those funds currently being used for the subsidies in order to off set the lost revenue that will result from the plan to massively cut taxes for the top 1%... That was the whole point of repeal and replace...to transfer taxpayer dollars from the ACA to the top 1%.

    On another forum, I get into arguments with them until it is to the point of threats of violence. I know I should not get into any debate with because it's useless but I have to get my point across.

    Trump didn't care or know what was in the Obamacare repeal. He just wanted any bill to pass so he could sell it as a success. Fox News and most of the conservative media is in support of Trump they are actively trying to get their listeners and viewers to primary Republicans that are hindering Trump' s agenda.

    Throughout the history of the USA, conservatives have always blamed others for the reason why race relations are the way they are. It was the civil rights activists, the NAACP, NOI, and the Black Panthers during the Jim Crow and Civil Rights Era; it's BLM, the Clintons, Obama, and Anifa fault now. Some of those groups and people are gone or don't have the influence that they used to have but race relations are still strained in 2017.

    I share some of the same concerns about Antifa that others posters have but the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Conservatives are going to crack down on blacks when the next mass major police killing or mass killing of whites is done by a black person. They blamed BLM for the police killings in Dallas and Louisiana and BLM for the most part don't wear masks.

    I need to know what are some of my fellow posters take on Antifa? Are they right or wrong? Do the ends justifies the means?
