  1. *Stephanie Forrester voice*  That man is married, Melania. You are such a slut! You made your filthy bed with that pig, now wallow in it!

     

    Jesting aside if soap operas weren't so looked down upon nowadays someone would have jumped at a Capitol reboot.


  2. The tax cuts were a bust from the start for working people. Some folks got excited about getting bonuses at work but those were more like severance pay because they were let go shortly after. Businesses and the ultra wealthy definitely did put the tax cuts into the economy like Republicans pretend they did.

    The 25th Amendment is not an option because most of the cabinet is there in an "acting" capacity and therefore never went through confirmation. They don't have the power to do anything. 

    That wasn't even something I thought of. It's crazy that most of the cabinet is acting. The state of our government is just terrible.


  4. The 25th Amendment should be invoked, because Trump is clearly slipping further down the drain mentally. Mike Pence really is an idiot in the fact that he hasn't pushed for this yet. If this was a soap opera the Vice President would have had the crazy President in a straight jacket already. Not that Pence would be better policy wise, but he'd basically be a lame duck with little power.


  5. There is a fee that has to be if the celebrity is chosen, but there is a nomination and selection process by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. Anyone nominated has to be in the entertainment field and Trump managed to get one from being on television. Reality stars have been told outright that they do not qualify for the walk, but Trump managed to get one probably because he was a producer for the Apprentice and that could qualify as a form of creativity. He likely knew people on the nominating committee (which is supposed to be kept super secret to prevent lobbying).


  6. Why would Netanyahu be afraid of Trump? Perhaps Trump has some information from Russia that could be damaging to him.

     

    The tariffs have done nothing to stave off a recession and the areas that will be hardest by one are areas that voted for Trump (in part because of tariffs already harming farmers). Trump would make a recession worse.


  7. Right-wingers always portray Hillary Clinton and her husband as these super villains, but if that were really true she'd be in the White House right now because she would have used some unethical means to get there like Trump did.

     

    With that said Epstein was taken off of suicide watch and he was in federal custody which means that Trump's Department of Justice was in charge of that call. Somebody wanted Epstein to off himself and knew that he would do it.


  8. Don't know if anyone else remembers this, but DHS early in the Obama Administration had warned against right-wing extremism, but was criticized by conservatives.

     

    The "Key Findings" section of the report opens with these words: "The DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has no specific information that domestic rightwing* terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment."

     

    It's really interesting that some conservatives thought this report was directed at them when it was specifically talking about radicalization and not regular conservatism.


  9. This shouldn't be commonplace, but it has become that way. The only way to get some decent gun control into place is for non-voters to start voting. These polls of all adults always show more liberal numbers on issues, but polls of voters are less liberal. There is room to change business as usual, we just need to engage more people. This is literally a fight for our lives.

    The other thing I'll say about Kamala Harris is the attacks about Willie Brown are coming, and coming soon. I hope her team has a surefire way of dealing with them.

    The surefire way to deal with those sort of attacks is to call them trash and leave it at that.

    Disagree. He won on racism the first time and he's simply doubling down on a winning strategy.

    He has his base but there is only so far they can get him and he can't win with them alone. There were a number of people who didn't turn up in 2016, but turned up in 2018 for the midterm elections. He's gained rural counties with population decline for Republicans, but has caused heavily losses in suburban counties. With that said, he won mostly because Comey wrote that letter and reopened the email issue for a lot of voters.


  12. He continues to ruin his chances for re-election nearly every day. He was elected on plurality of around 77k votes and for that to happen again would be like lightning striking twice. The best way to respond to him is to say "November 3rd, 2020, bitch".


  13. My aunt who was born here (my family has been here since at least the 1700s courtesy of the slave trade) called me the week before and was asking me what to do if ICE came to the door. I can understand why people who are undoubtedly citizens are afraid. There is no telling what ICE will do.

    I forgot about Stefano. Wouldn’t it be 11 now? Tony, Renee, Andre, Megan, Benjy, Kristen, Peter, Lexie, EJ, Chad, and Stefan. I don’t know the order of ages, I just put them in the order of appearances. 

     

    Its shocking Erica Kane didn’t have more given the times she had been married. 

    It is 11, I forgot Tony (Andre and Tony being played by the same actor always makes me forget one of those characters).

     

    It was surprising to me too that Erica didn't have more children.
