The similar 'tude of Charlie Sheen and the "winning"-est, least truth-iest Prez is telling. Winning with stds, failed tax evasion schemes, yeah, they're winners alright. I'd laugh if my head were not buried in the sand to keep the fuzzy-minded distraction-tactic clamor out.

If you want to change policy. The first thing to do is get active and vote for your candidate.

Noppity, nope, nope.

Voting for my candidate does Jack.


If you want to change policy, the first thing to do is to move to a swing district/state.

Otherwise you are just screaming at the wind.

Last night after the 60 Minutes Trump interview aired, I posted this on this thread.

We watched the 60 Minutes interview of Trump tonight. It didn't change our opinion that he is an arzehole.

Did anyone see the program, & thinks he looked wonderful?

And why do you think that, if you did?

In response, we get a a Donald Trump is Winning post from EddieT & two politcal cartoons from Hermitmaster.

Thank you conservatives, for your eloquent replies.

given this appears to be the politico thread du jour:



i’d like to suggest that we collectively [republican, independent, foreigner, democrat, etc and etc] take a moment to stand in awed silence.

why you might be asking?

i believe a moment of silence is due to honour this specific day... a day that i believe history will show to be the precise one where the established democratic party completed their jumping of the shark.

that is because this is the day where one of the few remaining democrats who might have had any hope of combining an existing national stage presence without all of the baggage of the clinton era dinosaurs, decided that releasing that she might be at best 1/64 cherokee and at worst 1/1024 peruvian [or less non-european than the average european descendant] would justify her being lauded as a “person of color” hire by elements within harvard.

while i’ve always had a soft spot for ms. warren and her politics, this gaffe shows such egregious political miscalculation that i believe it is the onion that has summed up this debacle most effectively:




and so to recap:

the party that thought it best to elect one of the most devisive political candidates in the history of polling for that sort of thing, to go up against a one mr. trump, and then after losing, chose to focus the majority of their energy on finger pointing at the russians, has now shown that one of the few great white [ha!] hopes they had...

has the political acumen of a grade seven candidate for junior high treasurer.



so a good bye to the democratic party that we all knew and loved/hated...

and a hello [barring a mueller flank or phoenician rise] to six more years of trumpian dynasty.




so please if you will... if you see the same things that i do...

let us all take a moment of silence as we hope for a phoenix to rise from the ashes...

given the u.s. of a. only has two primary parties, to be reduced down to only one should be understood to bring nothing of non-catastrophic good...

whatever your political leanings.

[one part /s and one part completely serious... finally: this political message was paid for by the letter f and the number 2]

You know what's really funny about this:

While John Wayne was playing soldier in the movies, Gus Hall, chairman of the Communist Party USA, had volunteered for the Navy and served in the South Pacific during WWII.

Typical, right wingers like to talk the talk, but not walk the walk.

On June 1, 2016 at a town hall meeting sponsored by PBS, Eric Cottonham, a steel workers' union member from Indiana, asked President Barack Obama about manufacturing jobs creation, saying, "All of our jobs have left, or are in the process of leaving."

In response, Obama noted that some jobs have gone overseas and that "I've been trying to negotiate trade deals ..." so overseas competitors "aren't undercutting us." Notably, Obama said that some jobs "are just not going to come back" while criticizing then-candidate Donald Trump for promising to "negotiate a better deal" and mocking him by claiming Trump would need a "magic wand" to fulfill his job promises.

In the 17 months prior to Obama's town hall (January 2015 to May 2016), the U.S. Department of Labor calculated that 40,000 manufacturing jobs (seasonally adjusted) had been created for a total of 12,336,000 jobs, anemic growth of about 0.3% over the period. By December 2016, Obama's last full month in office, manufacturing employment was up 55,000 jobs from January 2015.

On October 5, 2018, the Department of Labor released its national jobs report for September, showing unemployment had hit a 49-year-low at 3.7% with 134,000 jobs added last month of which 18,000 were in manufacturing.

Of note, in the 21 months since his inauguration, President Trump's deregulatory policies and historic tax cuts have led to a manufacturing resurgence, with 396,000 jobs added. In fact, the pace of manufacturing job growth over the past 21 months of President Trump's leadership is more than 10 times that of President Obama's last 21 months in office.

Nah, I agree.

I don’t see what the point of the test was. Trump’s base enjoy the racist insults, and decent people didn’t care. I’ve always thought the Pocahontas insults backfire outside of his base. Trump’s response “who cares” was actually spot on.

This seems to be a personal issue for her. It’s rather trivial and frankly whiny. She needs to set that aside.

Much as I appreciate some of Warren’s progressive views, she’d make a poor choice for the Dems in 2020. Any candidate is going to have to have the balls (figuratively) and thick skin to go up against Trumps wall of blather and bullsh#t....Warren doesn’t strike me as having enough chutzpah for such a task. Hell, running the US would be easy compared with getting through the campaign process against Trump.
