Let’s face it fellow progressives we got rolled. We got rolled because Republicans play hardball and Democrats are weak kneed. Schumer has proven to be an inept leader and should be replaced. When I lived in NY I never liked him. Was just a publicity seeking fool. What seems to be a bigger part of the sad story in that a group of 25 bipartisan Senators are forming a group. For the most part they are comprised of sanctimonious jerks like Susan Collins and a whole bunch of Red State Senators in tough reelection races in November. Of course the big losers again are the dreamers and that is what has many of us very upset. Does the new group of Senators take control of the Senate? Does the Senate once again be a justly important body? Could be interesting, or more likely wishful thinking.
At some point you really have to take a principled stand and say ENOUGH. The issue is clear with 90% of the American public believing these young people should have legal status and a path to citizenship. Schumer does not have the balls to be Minority Leader. He must go. Long live the Resistance!!!
I guess I must really have a thing about The Fat Slob. Seems I just can’t enough of his humiliations. I guess it’s sort of like Dump’s obsession with Hillary. Anyway I was thrilled to see that Newark Airport does not now accord His Royal Fatness VIP status. Indeed, they pushed him to the rear of the check in line. Too bad Chris you had such a bright future until you opened your fat mouth once too often!! Enjoy the back of the line tubby!!
To be sure the sensational book Fire and Fury is causing quite a stir for depicting President Dump as an out of control lunatic. However, this book need not have been written since it should be obvious to anyone with a functioning brave (or who doesn’t listen to Fox News) that Dump is completely unfit to be president of the United States. The man is insane. Nonetheless his Republican enablers defend him and are now in the process of taking out ads against the author of the book which is now Number One on Amazon. History will show that Dump was nuts but will also more importantly in my opinion depict Republicans in Congress as the real culprits. If Dump starts a nuclear war that kills millions they will bear the blame. Republicans are the enablers of this monster and as such are the most despicable people on the planet. Of them all Paul Ryan is the most culpable and the most disgusting. This ” devout ” Catholic is a total fraud.
Indeed, as long as the Republicans in Congress continue to enable a man who his own associates deem to be a moron,dope, dumb, and out of control they are playing with fire that can torch the world!!!
This has been a horrible year. How else can it be described? Donald Trump has surpassed all expectations of being a malignant force in American political life. Indeed, it has been hard to post as often as I would like because many days it’s difficult to find the words to adequately describe how much I detest this cretin. Many people have had to resort to going to the doctor asking for help for their depression and anxiety caused by this creature from the depths of hell. He is a cancer along with the enablers in the Republican party. The other day as I waited in the sub freezing temperatures to prepay my property taxes I cursed Trump and the Republicans for their political retribution of targeting those of us in blue states. It was a fitting end to this year of political hell.
I fear 2018 might not be better. Will the final act of Dump’s insanity be starting a nuclear war? What new retribution will be put upon those in blue states? There are those that believe Democrats will win control of Congress in the mid-terms elections. Don’t count on it. Democrats need new leadership to replace the old farts they now have leading the party. None seem to be around. As for the Mueller investigation I fear it is going nowhere fast. Why is Jared Kushner still running around the White House? So folks don’t be optimistic about the coming year. Indeed, I fear things will get worse!!! But for now all I can say is GOOD RIDDANCE to 2017.
Dear Readers: I apologize to my loyal base of fans for not posting lately. It seems my site was hacked (can you believe it) and it took some time to get a new Bits up and running. I guess the Russians must of learned of my devotion to calling out Dump for what he is (a disgusting vile cretin) and they decided to cause some mischief. I will rededicate myself to the ceaseless pursuit of truth in this age of political despair until the bane of humanity called Dump is gone. Stay tuned!!!
Investors, who ought to be wary of such fiscal recklessness, were instead caught up in manias of their own. Remember 2009, when everyone swore we’d never let our markets get drunk on consumer debt and sketchy assets again? According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, household debt has passed the pre-recession record of nearly $13 trillion — and that’s before what’s shaping up to be a holiday spending binge. Meanwhile, imaginary money known as bitcoin has been selling for $12,000 per . . . per what? Per unit of imaginary money, backed solely by the full faith and credit of other bitcoin believers. bitcoin is up nearly 1,000 percent this year. It’s the Dutch tulip craze, except that in Holland investors at least ended up with some bulbs when the bubble burst. When the bottom drops out of bitcoin, today’s giddy buyers might as well have a wallet full of Monopoly money.
Not unexpectedly reports surfaced yesterday that Michael Flynn may be getting ready to cooperate with Mueller. If so Dotard likely will not be too much longer for the Oval Office. What a day of celebration when this cretin leaves the White House!!!
Sure it’s Thanksgiving and we are somewhat all obliged to count our blessings. All the usual platitudes apply. However, for my part how in the world can I be thankful when Dump is president and likely will be for some time to come. Will he eventually start the nuclear that seems to be his fondest wish? What outrages will be forthcoming for the environment, race relations, or just about anything that approaches decent thinking? So sorry folks I cannot be very thankful this year. The country is going to hell.
—Florida was never supposed to be prime real estate. Is the borrowed time running out? “Great article from Michael Grunwald in Politico Magazine: ‘A Requiem for Florida, the Paradise That Should Never Have Been.’ He cites some really interesting history, noting that descriptions in the 1830s called Florida a muggy, swampy hellhole of a place. The consensus among the soldiers was that the U.S. should just leave the area to the Indians and the mosquitoes; as one general put it, ‘could not wish them all a worse place.’ Or as one lieutenant complained: “Millions of money has been expended to gain this most barren, swampy, and good-for-nothing peninsula.” But someone saw a chance to make money, so of course money had to be made, right? It’s the American way. But now the consequences are becoming evident. Most South Floridians don’t think much about climate change, either, even though it’s creating more intense storms, even though the rising seas around Miami Beach now flood low-lying neighborhoods on sunny days during high tide. People tend not to think too much about existential threats to the places they live. They just live.”
