Re: President Trump

I buy it. Jackson is a career officer, is an extremely well-regarded professional, and is serving as personal physician to his second President. I saw no reason to doubt his reports when he was Obama's doctor, and I see no reason to start now. As I've said before, I don't see much reason to doubt th...

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

Shutdown harm starts before an actual shutdown. A lot of time is lost, particularly by supervisors and other leaders, in planning. There isn't a lot of extra time in most schedules; the time spent planning for a shutdown either results in other things not getting done, or, more often, in people havi...

Re: Resolution to Censure President Trump: Re "Shithole"

Using the Google-Books search engine I had no problem finding about twenty books where the expression "shithole countries" was used with reference to pretty much the same countries supposedly intended by Trump. Also Google dredged up about 40 books more without displaying the actual use of that exp...

Re: Resolution to Censure President Trump: Re "Shithole"

It’s remarkable that there are apparently people who don’t quite seem able to grasp the difference between an alleged entertainer and the President of the United States.

Re: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)/DREAM Act

This relieves pressure on the Dems in the budget negotiations. DACA was their primary goal. Am I missing something? :confused: Dems had better not feel relieved. This is only a temporary reprieve - I fully expect the administration will appeal and/or, if necessary, adjust their procedures to allow ...

Re: Diane Feinstein releases the FusionGPS transcripts

Mike I am unconvinced. The Senate, like the Supreme Court and state legislatures, is simply another institution which the Republicans seek to control regardless of what the rules used to be in order to dominate American politics when they are the minority party. So I find your reasoning to be based...

So, Diane Feinstein should fiercely protect democratic norms that Republicans have already destroyed. :nope:

There is nothing left to protect when it comes to this issue. Republicans have destroyed it. Completely.
