CA citizen says it perfectly at town hall...

"You represent the people of the 25th district of California; you do not represent the first district of Wisconsin!”


Those Republicans in the House need to hear their local variations of this time and again before the next midterm elections.

How does this make sense to Republicans?


"Trump Administration Moves To Roll Back Birth Control Coverage" - headline at HUFFPOST

So they're cutting Birth Control...
And TRUMPCARE allows states to cut Essential Health Benefits!!!

SO more babies - who is going to pay for it?

How many low-income families can afford $1k/mo for maternity benefits?
How do Republicans think this makes any kind of sense?

Or is it all some masterplan to stuff more and more Private Prisons with Republican "slave" workers?

Oliver Stone is standing by…

Almost every President inspires a movie such as:
1. NIXON – NIXON (1995) director Oliver Stone
2. NIXON - ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN (Hoffman & Redford)
3. KENNEDY – JFK (1991) director Oliver Stone
5. BUSH 2 – W (2008) director O. Stone
6. BUSH 2 - IDIOCRACY (2006)?
For example ---


Logline: When Jared Kushner unexpectedly leaves Ivanka to marry Ted Cruz, the impact devastates Donald Trump, who leaves all his empire, via a last will and tweet, to Sean Spicer on the condition he get a sex change and revive MIKE AND MOLLY. Crazed, Trump dashes outside, attempting to shoot random people in Times Square, in a mad quest to finally complete at least one campaign promise, before he’s tragically gunned down by Ted Nugent, mistakenly thinking Trump’s hair hides an evil giant orange possum named Andy.



Logline: After Donald Trump is impeached and a plane carrying Paul Ryan, Rex Tillerson, Steve Mnuchin, James Mattis and the zombie formerly known as Orin Hatch crash-lands in the Rockies during a combo tornado/hurricane/blizzard/tidal wave [definitely not the result of climate warming!], leaving the Hatch-thing as the only survivor. But when it’s learned HOW he survived (eating the others, and a also surprisingly rare Rocky Mountain shark, alive - think of the special effects!), Jeff Sessions begins his ill-fated two week presidency only for it to be discovered he’s been the secret head of the KKK since 1964, spurring the House to finally vote to impeach him when the Freedom caucus decides he isn’t sufficiently racist.

Can you image in Bjarke Ingles got a contact to remake our major city slums? (instead Trump/Kushner)


That would change life for the better for more Americans than Trump and his ilk can ever dream of. Or most Dems.

But then, again, I also love WHERE TO INVADE NEXT by Michael Moore highlighting what we can learn from other countries. How come we don't have innovation on those levels?

Ambulances standing by... (re:The Supreme Court struck down two congressional district maps in NC)

AP - Clarence Thomas discovered he was black today. Bethesda and Mayo Clinic teams flow in for 24 hour watch. Aides fearful of stroke or PSTD. Trump orders mirrors removed from his office and residence. Marine One to deliver Dr. Harold Bornstein for examination. Updates on News at 11.
