How many years have Democrats controlled both houses?

Let's say since the Bill Clinton era.
And in those years how many did we have a 60 vote majority in the Senate?

Anyone have a chart? Link?

Who gets NRA "blood money"?


The updated "both parties are NOT the same" list

I keep adding to it.
Feel free to copy, add to it, and share it, especially with those who say, "both parties are the same".

Here's the latest...

Things that Democrats would not be doing if they had the power:

Escalating towards nuclear war with NK.
Pulling out of Paris Climate Agreement.
Reducing National Monuments.
Defunding renewable energy.
Defunding CHIP.
Not helping Puerto Rico sufficiently.
Threatening and deporting DACA.
Building a wall on the southern border.
Attacking our allies and praising Russia.
Inviting Russian spies alone into the Oval Office and sharing classified intel with them.
Ignoring the Russia's cyber attack on our democracy.
Trying to revive the war on cannabis.
Backing expansion of private prisons.
Sabotaging the ACA.
Pushing an obscene tax bill which trigger cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
Preparing to decimate the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau.
A State Department in shambles.
Privatization schemes against public education.
Expanding the private prison system.
Attacking the BLM movement.
Praising White Supremacists.
Renewing attacks on our LGBT brothers and sisters.
Destroying Net Neutrality.
Decimating clean water and clean air standards.
Banning certain words from useage at the Center for Disease Control.
Oil drilling off our coasts.
30% tariff tax on solar panels.
Packing the Federal bench with pro-corporate rightwing extremist judges.
Cutting funding to Meals on Wheels.
Decimating women's rights.
Rolling back sexual assault protections on college campuses.
Attempting to discredit our FBI as it investigates Russian influence on our democracy.
Protecting wife beaters.

To name a few.

"The whole Russia thing..."

Found this gem on Facebook.

The whole Russia thing, I mean there's absolutely no evidence out there that Trump colluded with the Russians except the Manafort thing, and the Flynn thing, and the Roger Stone thing, and the Cohen thing, and the Kushner thing, and the Carter Page thing, and the Jeff Sessions things, and the Wilbur Ross thing, and the JD Gordon thing, and the Erik Prince thing, and the James Comey firing thing, and the Russian hacking/Wikileaks thing, and the bro-love between TrumPutin thing, and the Russian propaganda machine favoring Trump thing, and the DJT "I have zero ties to Russia!" thing, and the Eric Trump "we get most of our financing from Russian banks thing", and the Donald Trump Jr. "Our portfolio is made up of a disproportionate amount of Russian money" thing, and the DJT "I sold a $60 million mansion to a Russian oligarch known for money laundering for $120 million that he never once lived in " thing, and the Trump business ties with Putin's favorite sports athlete Fedor Emilianenko thing, and the Trump International Corporation's mysterious private server connection to Alfa Bank, Russia's largest commercial bank thing, and the Special prosecutor being named thing, and the I won't release my tax returns thing, and the Ivanka Trump's vacationing with Putin's girlfriend thing, and the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant in Moscow thing, and the Trump companies business ties to Felix Sater, a criminal felon indicted for stock fraud scheme with the Russian mafia thing, and the FL Group Icelandic hedge fund with massive ties to Putin being heavily invested in Trump Soho thing, and the Rex Tillerson/Exxon ties to Russia thing, and the Russian ambassador at Trump Tower sneaking in and out thing, and the Trump tried to roll back Russian sanctions the minute he got elected thing, and Congress passing more sanctions on Russia and Trump blatantly not inforcing them thing.

Other than that, there's absolutely no reason to suspect anything. 😕

Republicans love their Putin


Republicans admire Putin as a "strong leader". They've said so publicly for years. George W said he looked him in the eyes and trusts his "soul".
So what's the big surprise that #FoxNews and #Republicans favor him?



Why we can't have nice things


A reminder why we can't have universal healthcare and good careers in cleaning up our environment.
This is a lot of payola.
Much of which going not to the rank and file service personnel who risk everything but rather to wealthy private contractors.http://www.ibtimes.com/political-capital/defense-department-war-terror-has-cost-250-million-day-16-years-2608639
