Having witnessed Trump and company slice through the Republican contenders with pithy shorthand phrases like:

Lyin' Ted Cruz
and
Little Marco

and seeing him effectively do the same with Hilary:

"Crooked Hilary"

I think it's important to give a moniker for the Evil that's coalescing now in Washington. Something that will STICK with them like superglue and remind voters every time their slime makes the news.

I propose THE THREE LITTLE PIGS -- Ryan, Trump and McConnell.

Stick this on them and make American think of it with every job loss, every inane expenditure (The WALL, The cost of ACA repeal, etc.)

THE THREE LITTLE PIGS - If I could figure how to include a photo I'd put those three in black SS uniforms with armbands - McConnell is a ringer for Himmler, TRump's funky hair equals Adolf's and Ryan is a skinny slime like Goebbels. But American know from nothing as this person proves:

If life were a Roadrunner cartoon I'd like to shove a thousand knives in this guy's head - but they'd hit nothing but AIR~!!!

This guy just may be the stupidest person in America. The problem is he has lots of relatives - enough to elect Trump. But even the ACA can't cure stupid. But if we hit the evil trio with a nickname crafted to disclose their 1% policies for the super rich, maybe, just maybe enough cartoon-watching Americans will remember at election time.

For what it's worth - voting lines in NH California...

Early voting lines around the North Hollywood library Sat & Sun were astounding to me - longer than the previous long lines for say Spielberg's CLOSE ENCOUNTERS when it debuted in LA. Sunday it snaked back and around - easily 1/3 to 1/2 mi long.

If you were in a "safe" state like CA or NY...

And Jill Stein came out STRONGLY for basic income, would you vote for her? (Obviously in states still up for grabs you wouldn't)

(disclosure - I'm not a Jill Stein supporter or even know much about her but I am STRONG for Guy Standing and basic income).

What does it take to impeach a Senator (if possible)?

Or bring a charge of conspiracy for treason?

Am I alone in being OUTRAGED beyond belief at this Tim Sloan character?

Wells Fargo’s new CEO, Tim Sloan, told a leading industry trade publication in June 2016 that the bank’s aggressive sales culture and “cross-selling” targets was perfectly appropriate and “is not going to change.” This was years after top executives at the bank knew that thousands of their employees were responding to those sales targets by generating fake accounts.

I've worked for a*holes like Sloan. These are Donald Trumps without the saving grave of being orange. They were at the heart of the S&L scandals and basically every other sh*tty thing done in America. DT will be gone from our concern after the election, it's these lurking a*holes who are ruining America. THE NEED TO SEE SOME JAIL TIME@!

I'd even consider voting for Trump if he'd appoint Eliz Warren as a special prosecutor to go after them! (I'm sure even deep Red state voters would recognize the problem if it was made manifest)

Billion Dollar Loser...

Forget the taxes...

Even Republicans have to wonder if they want a Billion Dollar loser running the government.

Could be a short and sweet 30 second sound bite to throw against the fiscal hawks.

Calling out DT's lies?

After these debates each side claims they win. We know HC has the best positions but I think tomorrow whoever has the best zingers will be termed the winner.

Question - - the media mostly says things like 'not true" about DT's statements, so would HC having the "gravitas" to say something like "Well, DT, you know that's just a lie because on xyz you said on tape xyz..." Would be so nice to hear the word LIE finally make it to primetime about the Yamster.
