Perhaps they figured they'd save House Democrats some time because you know the Democrats would eventually take out the trash. Now, if only the state of Iowa would see to reason and do the same.

Good luck explaining this away:

That tweet about NBC urging their staff to use endless euphemisms instead of just telling truth to power-- that, therein, lies the problem of the entire MSM (corporate owned) and it's killing this country right now.  

I guess we can all be philosophical about it and say 'well, empires fall...'. 

Unto everything there is a season.

 

Thank goodness, there are at least some independent journalist and truth in media advocates willing to call these people out for their foolishness and mediocrity.

I reiterate my wish that this entire "Brexit" mess would go away forever.  More and more, it looks like a messy waste of time.

Brexit is just another example of how the right wing has destabilized governments around the world.

All because no one wanted to discuss the real problem-- austerity measures that had made poverty even more widespread.

 

 

Speaking of messes, has anyone been following anything about this El Chapo trial?  It's wild, man!  I don't know how much of these testimonies are true but this puts Narcos to shame.

My niece attended a "Christian academy" for awhile in Texas.  Those places always give me the willies.

 

On the bright side, they don't have to worry about discriminating against anyone (especially now), because no one in the right mind would ever apply to a "school" such as that.  (Seriously.  I'd rather work for minimum wage at a fast-food joint than work for a place like Immanuel Christian School.)

Nancy is no fool. She knows pageantry is all Trump cares about, and she can take it from him.

"The State of the Union is closed." Perfect messaging.

 

This right here is why I prefer policy wonks and nerds instead of people good at Twitter beefs. The devil is in the details and Pelosi knows every loophole and every bit of procedure.

 

ETA: This is perfect.

A lot of people do not realize that Speaker of the House is an actual job and not a spokesperson just to go on television, but fortunately most of the Democratic caucus in the House understands that and that is why Pelosi was voted into the position again. You have to know how to maneuver to be Speaker.
