This news simply made my day.


Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's daughter Jennifer Detlefsen, who is a Navy veteran, sharply criticized the proposal, calling the president a "disgrace," the Billings Gazette reported Friday. ….

“This man is a disgrace. I've tried to keep politics out of my social media feed as much as possible, but this is inexcusable,” read her post on July 26, which still appeared online on Saturday.

"This veteran says sit down and shut the f--k up, you know-nothing, never-served piece of s--t," she added.

Am I the only one who sees a connection between the Iraq war because they "had" wmd's

and now being led to believe that N.Korea has the ability to hit us with a nuclear bomb. The threat of a nuclear war would certainly take the focus off Trumps troubles with Russia et al.
Watching the news tonight there is a "panic" theme because nuclear war is at hand, so we are told.
We are now being led down the same path -- war will surely bring the country together behind the mad man we call our president.
It is his last hope to become a "hero".
I am sick tonight. FUck TRUMP and all his minions.

Why we need Bernie - like him or not....

"Though he endorsed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primaries, Steyer told Mic that he has come to view Sanders's progressive platform as the necessary way forward.

"There is an absolute, unspoken war between corporate interests and the American people," he said. "That's the underlying subtext for all of the public discussions within the Democratic party. We're seeing a deliberate attempt to take away [working families'] future by really rich people. Until we address that, I don't think we're dealing with the reality Americans are facing today."

Just what we need, another Dem promoting fracking


"Just days ago, while Trump was preparing for a trip to Europe where he would further isolate the U.S. from the rest of the world on matters of climate policy and common sense in general, Mitch McConnell announced an unusual move to bypass standard Senate procedure and push the Energy Modernization Act of 2017 directly to the full floor for a vote. This bill, authored by Cantwell and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), would greatly expand fracking and natural gas infrastructure at just the moment we need to be aggressively moving off fossil fuels and to 100 percent renewable energy."

One of the problems with Dems and their inability to win....



I know most here will protest - but it should be looked at with open eyes. I can't be the only one who is sick and tired of the much too cozy relationship with the corporate $$ that is buying too many votes from our so called progressive representatives.
