Jay Inslee/Joe Kennedy III in 2020!

Is Joe Kennedy III even 35?

I keep thinking of the three Civil Rights workers murdered in Mississippi in 1964.

Was their blood and the blood of others given so that two smarmy, little shits like Chris Kobach and Hans von Spakovsky could systematically disenfranchise millions of voters?

It is my dream that someday these two and others will be in a "Nuremberg Style" dock facing charges.

A Simple Question:

Why the hell aren't Congressional Democrats raising holy hell over this Kris Kobach and the Trump Vote Fraud Committee's request for all 50 state voter rolls?

My God, what is it going take to wake them up? I have only heard individual Secretaries of State tell them to go blow! This is a good example of why there are legitimate beefs with the leadership of the Democratic Party! If the shoe was on the other foot, what would Republicans and their echo chamber be doing right now?

NEVER call it "Trumpcare."

As horrible as Trump is, he would support anything to get a petty legislative win. The message should be about the GOP.

The Republicans have been jonesing to do this since Obamacare was passed because they don't want anything in the government to work. Gutting health care is just the first step in the destruction of the New Deal.

The "Death for Taxcuts Act" is not a good name, but that is the idea that needs to be conveyed.

I would love to hear your ideas.

Why Benedict Donald will never be presidential

The new GOP line about Trump's malicious tweet about Mika, via Melania and Huckabee Sanders, is that when he is attacked, he fights back!

President Obama was the most disrespected president in US history, but he knew the office of the president was about so much more than himself. I'm sure he would have loved to fire back, especially when they attacked his wife and kids, but he remained in control and a class act for 8 years.

Trump can't come close to behaving like that for 8 minutes. That is why he will NEVER be presidential.

Always Remember This About Trump's Tweets:

The low information, dumbass losers who blame everyone but themselves for their crappy position in life EATS THIS SHIT UP!

He definately has mental health issues and is unfit to be president, but he plays to the only voters left who still support him against "them liberal elite media people."

It's Not Just About a Promise of Repealing Obamacare:

I hope people realize the Obamacare repeal is just the first battle in the GOP and their Lord and master's, the Kock brothers, "War on the New Deal." Full Medicare repeal, the gutting of Social Security, and the theft of government pensions are up next!

This is why a GOP defeat on Trumpcare is so important!

Chuck Todd is An Ass

On NBC, he just equated the unnamed Obama administration source of stating "We choked" with regards to the Russian hacking to W Bush presidential daily briefing of Aug 9, 2001, "Bin laden determined to strike in US." "They will be viewed the same in history."

Yes: I am ready for new Democartic Party leadership and with good reason!

I am the last of a dying breed: An unashamed New Deal Democrat. For most of my entire life time, I have seen a Democratic Party that plays defense instead of offense, checkers instead of chess, and operate like boy scouts against a street gang, aka the GOP. Here is a partial list of what I mean:

1. In 1968, the Nixon Campaign cut a deal with the South Vietnamese government to ruin the Paris Peace talks until AFTER the election. There is even a tape of LBJ informing Sen. Everett Dirksen that it was treason. What was done about it? NOTHING!

2. Similarly, the Reagan campaign cut a deal with Iran to keep the hostages in captivity until AFTER the election. What was done about it? NOTHING!

3. While the Iran/Contra scandal did lead to some minor convictions that were later thrown out, what happened to Reagan and George H. Bush? NOTHING!

4. In 1988, Michael Dukakis allowed George H Bush to insinuate that he was unpatriotic. Why the hell didn’t he ask Bush in one of the debates the following, “As head of the NSC, you either you knew all about Iran/Contra and lied about it or you were incompetent and did not know what your underlings were doing.” “Which is it?” Did Dukakis fight back? NO!

5. When President Clinton took office in 1993, the new administration announced there would be no more investigation of Iran/Contra or Reagan Bush. It was time to move on!

6. In 2004, the Republicans were able to swiftboat a two time, decorated, volunteer war hero in John Kerry by a spoiled brat, elitist, “W”, who got daddy to get him into a champagne unit of the Alabama Air National Guard from which he may have been AWOL, instead of going to Vietnam. How could a party allow this to happen?

7. When there were serious questions about the corporate made electronic voting machines, especially in Ohio in the 2004 Presidential election, what was done about it? NOTHING! These dam machines still plague us in 2017!

8. After lying the nation into a war that killed over 100,000 innocent Iraqis, 5000 American troops and ruining the lives of several thousands of wounded vets, the Democrats regained power after the 2016 mid-term elections. Speaker Pelosi famously said “impeachment was off the table”; like a cop telling a criminal that no matter what you do, we won’t arrest you. Did the Democrats fully investigate the decision to go to war? No!

9. As the biggest political scandal in US History was unfolding, an outgoing Democratic President Obama decided not to go public with the startling news that Russia was trying to interfere with our electoral process out of a fear that the man who unconstitutionally blocked the President’s right to appoint a Supreme Court justice (Mitch McTreason) might make it a “Partisan, political issue.” OMG Really?

I’m tired of playing nice with people who ruthlessly have under minded American Democracy for over 50 years! YES; I AM PISSED AT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY! I am tired of bringing a slingshot to an assault weapon gun fight. THIS is why many of us want new, bold leadership to take on the treasonous fucks who call themselves the Republican Party!

If I don't think Nancy "Impeachment is off the table" Pelosi is a good leader for the Democrats

Why does that automatically make me a misogynist? Reading many posts today, that seems to be a theme and it's absurd!
