Cowards, the lot of them - here is the message to all the cowards

Either lead, follow or get the hell out of the way of WE The People - we will not start the fight..but, be damned sure we will end it....trump and co ARE white supremacists - They ARE NOT American in any sense of the word..They ARE Un-American....

You lie with dogs..you get fleas...right now our congress and WH needs to be fumigated..there is NO two sides about it...

You want to spread hateful messages..you will be met with resistance....I refuse to listen to any normalization from the pundits - WTF - they don't even know HOW TO address this disgusting unimaginable evil in the WH - Persist, Resist!

Skybridge/Mooch Sale on track - Schumer wants to Block Chinese Deals


The SkyBridge sale is under review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, an interagency committee that vets sales of American companies to foreign buyers to protect national security.

To understand this deal you have to digest the Chinese Co. that wants to acquire Skybridge -


As George Takei would say "Oh, my!"

Now, a funny story, I had a disagreement w/then boyfriend (mid 80s), hubby today - we were visiting friends in VA - I left him there, and drove home to Mass.....(long story), anyway (see, I didn't use anyways), he wrote me a letter from VA (he had decided to stay on for a short while).

I used a red pen, on the letter, to correct everything he wrote, and sent it back to him..to this day, we laugh our asses off, he likes to tell that story - I wish I still had the letter.

My two cents - Heller (NV) and Capito (WV) have NO cover -

If we have a Democratic candidate to run against either of these Senators, get thee to the pulpit..NOW!
Strike NOW - and keep pounding the message - Make ACA Better -

I wonder how much FUN Capito is having now????

Heller is just a coward....

Kudo's to Mccain..(don't forget, Lindsey voted yea)

Scaramucci - nice Fed. Tax Break If you can get it

- Agreement to sell firm came before he joined administration
- Ex-government ethics chief says deal probably doesn’t qualify


Wheelin' an' dealin' - what a chump..can you do the Fandango - oopsie - SkyBridge buyers: a politically connected Chinese conglomerate, and a little-known investment company linked to a Venezuelan-born banker known for close ties to the Hugo Chavez regime.

Anthony Scaramucci wants to put off a tax bill that could reach millions of dollars on the pending sale of his stake in SkyBridge Capital, according to people familiar with the matter. But the incoming White House communications director might have a problem.

The sale was announced before he became a government employee, and that could make him ineligible for a tax break that’s designed to let investors serve in government without getting hit with massive tax penalties, experts say.

They are all paid by us, and they are only looking out for themselves..pay taxes..nope..

Democracy In Chains - riveting - and I only read the reviews

Of course the Author has her critics..and you should read them as well - you decide with everything we know right now....will make you pause....(I am not selling this book - only bringing the concept to you) I will bet, too, you already know this material..we are living thru it -

A DU member last night who started this discussion needs to be commended....and I understand that publishers sell books -



“[A] vibrant intellectual history of the radical right . . .” – The Atlantic
“This sixty-year campaign to make libertarianism mainstream and eventually take the government itself is at the heart of Democracy in Chains. . . . If you’re worried about what all this means for America’s future, you should be” – NPR
“Riveting” – O, The Oprah Magazine (Top 20 Books to Read This Summer)

An explosive exposé of the right’s relentless campaign to eliminate unions, suppress voting, privatize public education, and change the Constitution.

Behind today’s headlines of billionaires taking over our government is a secretive political establishment with long, deep, and troubling roots. The capitalist radical right has been working not simply to change who rules, but to fundamentally alter the rules of democratic governance.

You decide what to make of all this.....be well all..and tks to very smart DU members....

Who can, and How can, the ACA be made to work for the American people

With all the goings on about the ACA bad, where is the conversation as to What should be done to fix it?

Where are the people to have the discussion and solve the problem, once and for all? Is it a minor tweek? - Is it the Insurance companies? Is it Big Pharma?

Just me thinking out loud...the solution is above my paygrade, and seems to me we have been paying the wrong people in congress for 8+ years to find the answers...
