"Unindicted co-conspirator" in the Michael Cohen case.

So why isn't he indicted NOW? Please tell me this charge is in front of a grand jury at this very moment.

TEXIT Referendum Bill Is Now Official

A lot of Texans, apparently, want to be their own country. Bless their hearts.

Three and half hours into a new Presidency.... Why hasn't trump been arrested?

Call me impatient. I think I'm entitled to it.

A constitutional save-face for Republicans?


Article I Section 5 addresses quorums: a Majority of each [House] shall constitute a Quorum to do Business

Article I Section 3 addresses impeachment: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present.

So, Mitch, just ask all but four of your Republican friends to not show up. The Senate will convict 47-4, satisfying both clauses of the Constitution. And those absent Republicans will not be forever recorded with a vote for nor against the scumbag.

Can we talk phone service providers? I mean, how can anybody not prefer T-Mobile?

Delete this thread if it's against DU rules. I honestly don't know.

In the meantime, I've been a Verizon customer for what... 25 years? And this morning I found myself asking "WHY?".

So, I first stopped at the Verizon store.... their agent met me at the front door... it was COLD and rainy and she wouldn't let me in. "May I help you?", she asked. I responded, "You can start by letting me inside. It's freezing out here."

So, once inside I explained to her.... "look, I got this flyer from T-Mobile and it looks like I would save 20 bucks a month by switching to them."

She: "Well, you're already on our lowest price plan."

Me: "See you later."

The T-Mobile store just happens to be about 100 yards away. I marched over there, the agents were super friendly and helpful, and I made the switch.

I mean, $20 bucks a month to a person on a fixed income is a big deal. Two trips to Burger King! Woohoo.

trump got so many votes he broke the algorithms!

He got 80+ million, and Biden got 68 million (if even that!)


So says the My Pillow guy, who is meeting as we speak with trump and Flynn to unleash a storm of evidence upon my evil self.

Corporations are people, and Hobby Lobby, as a person, shouldn't have to provide insurance coverage

it finds offensive, but Twitter should be forced to allow any motherfucking white racist terrorist to speak.

That's the Republican logic.

Eat a Citizens United dick, Devin Nunes.

So, listening to RW talk radio here in Charlotte, and Joe Manchin is their new hope

It's actually a good take.

We know that Washington DC is going to immediately apply for statehood, which would mean a 50-50 Senate tie would suddenly become a 52-50 advantage. Puerto Rico would make that 54-50.

But here's the deal. Under a 52-50 advantage Joe Manchin suddenly becomes a far less important vote.

I'm not here to impugn Mr. Manchin, but only to get some idea of his position on the statehoods of DC and Puerto Rico, as well as on other potential programs such as the Green New Deal and a Public Option for Healthcare. He's a hard man to predict.

Let's go, Puerto Rico. Let's go, D.C.

I hope your applications for statehood are ready to go.
