What's going to happen when one of those packages goes off?

The right wing response is easy to guess, but I genuinely don't know what the Democratic leadership of Congress will do in response to the GOP attempt to exploit it.

Does anyone remember after election when Trump said it wasn't Reagan's party anymore, it was his?

I've tried googling it a couple of different ways and can't find it.

What ELSE is going on with Saudi that our media & gov't suddenly notice they're assholes?

I mean the Saudi government not the people who have zero say there.

Not too long ago, they could behead teenagers for mild criticism of the government, wage their genocidal war in Yemen (with our help), and finance and direct terrorists, including those that killed 3,000 Americans on 9/11 and no one in Washington gave a flying fuck.

Something like this murder of a journalist is usually the tip of the iceberg, a way to get the public lined up with a policy shift or even pre-war footing.

What changed behind the scenes?

Simple solutions to mitigate climate catastrophe

So the IPCC says we've got 12 years to slow the worst effects of climate change.

There's not a snowball's chance in hell Trump or any Republican will do anything about it.

But if the Democrats manage to get enough votes to at least pass legislation, what would be some straight-forward ways to reduce our greenhouse gasses?

Increase tax incentives for switching to electric cars and make free charging widely available.

All new power plants must be clean energy and renewable.

I'd say rapid deployment of mass transit like the rest of the developed world has in large cities, rail-based, that doesn't have to share the road with cars, and incentives for people to use it free fares and wifi would be a good start.

Start a campaign to get people to eat less meat (or at least less beef).

What else could we do?

Joe Lieberman To Replace Nikki Haley As UN Ambassador?

Is anyone proud that Joe was a Democrat?

A couple of Connecticut political scientists are not surprised by speculation in Washington that former U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut is on the White House short list to replace U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.
UConn political scientist Ron Schurin says it not unusual for a former U.S. senator to be appointed to the U.N.

“Henry Cabot Lodge was ambassador to the U.N. in the Eisenhower administration. And other political figures such as Adlai Stevenson during the Kennedy administration. President Truman had Senator Warren Austin, a Republican, as one of the American delegates to the U.N. in the early days. And that was a logical move toward cementing the bipartisan foreign policy. So there’s nothing dramatic or unusual about this.”

Sacred Heart University political scientist Gary Rose says Lieberman publicly supported Trump‘s move of the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, so he’s not surprised that Lieberman would be considered for the U.N. job.


GRAPHICS: Trump impeachment poll numbers vs. other impeachees

After putting together the second one, I wondered again how the hell Democrats manage to lose to these corrupt stumblefucks.

Feel free to distribute these far and wide.
