Behold the Bipartisianship

Amazing how it has kicked in during this lame duck session. Repugs get TPP. Dems get ACA. Not much of a trade if you ask me, maybe for single payer I would have made the deal ... but then I'm not Nancy Pelosi.

Now I'm wondering what the American People get.

6. I'm happy to see those flags go -

but notice that it replaced the conversation about whether a gun in every hand is really necessary. Ah well, we'll get to that with the next massacre I suppose.

5. Wouldn't it have been fun, at least retribution to somehow vote against the TPP for 5 years numerous

times, like 60, to make them anxious and sweat the way Americans have been doing all these years, not to mention fearing illness and injury or having to pay everything you have, even losing your home and going into permanent debt to receive medical care.

Oh that we had anything near that power. We're so grateful to have semi-corporate healthcare finally after 50 years and behind the vast majority of developed countries. What a way to run a country, into the ground.
But it's still a good day since Scalia's SCOTUS could have killed the ACA. Count our blessings I suppose.
Buy-Partisanship and the CEO Party are good for transnational corps. and the investor class, regular Americans not so much.

- Fascist Track TPP Buy-Partisanship, it's the American Way!

10. If the shoe fits..Nice, keep that real flag circulating!

No more states or countries just pure, raw and freaky oligarchic, global corporate rule with token politicos who are bought. Do we even need a Congress anymore I wonder. Most of them are multimillionaires and the Senate almost functions like a House of Lords.
I swear I heard Nikki Haley just say she was a CEO, thought only W was dumb enough to do that. They aren't kidding-



*On a lighter note, that's an adorable Bernie Bear. It seems darker which I like, than the lighter ones I've seen online and Thom H.'s program. Maybe it's the lighting.

9. Perhaps I should have posted it in the socialist group -

although I think quite a few of the members of this group have also come to the realization that "business as usual" in this country is only helping the 1%. I didn't mean to offend and if the hosts would prefer I will delete and repost elsewhere.
