This latest health care bill atrocity is Shock Doctrine technique

At its finest. Do something the wealthy want done that is extremely unpopular, but do it fast so that everyone is shocked by its cruelty and avarice. Naomi Klein is a prophet.

I find it amazing that there might still be enough rule of law left in this country

that Trump might actually be held accountable for something in his long, miserable life.

Strange to see the machinery of a once-functional legal system actually working and threatening the elite in power. This must have been what Watergate felt like.

Short Term Memory Loss is Epidemic on DU

I often wonder what it is like to wake up every day and be struck afresh by the fact that a certain Senator who is very progressive and works hard with the Democrats for progressive policies is not actually a member of the Democratic party.

Like Drew Barrymore in 50 First Dates, they awake this to factoid every day, and are so gobsmacked by it, they feel they need to post it whenever the Senator is mentioned. And sometimes when he is not!

The best we can do for our afflicted friends is to gently remind them that we all already know this fact, and that even though it seems like it is of paramount importance, the rest of us don't actually give a shit.

Why can't conservatives spell?

There is a PhD in neuroscience awaiting the person who can figure out what the link is between the spelling centers in the brain and being an asshole.

Trump is his own picture of Dorian Gray

His life of hideous actions and attitudes etched into his monstrous visage.
