Morality is not determined by the church you attend nor the faith you embrace. It is determined by the quality of your character and the positive impact you have on those you meet along your journey

O/t the orange orngutang at it again. This time on Gingberg. Still a pos he is. Hmm who will be next?
I'm a staunch Democrat and love RBG, but I am disappointed that she voiced her personal opinions about Trump. I don't think her mind is shot as Trump stated but I do question why she made this choice.
@Anonymous 5:44 AMShe made the choice, because it is HER prerogative.Just like Roberts made the choice to act funny when he had to give President Obama the oath of office.Just like the conservative justices handed W Bush the presidency on a silver platter.
@Anonymous 5:44 AMBy the way, this thread is NOT about RBG.I doubt you love her, and I doubt you are a Democrat.I back her 100%.
Very good article about Trump and the GOP here - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/richard-north-patterson/the-gop-reaps-the-whirlwi_b_10718800.html
"Republican Lieutenant Governor of Texas blamed the Dallas shootings not just on the shooter, but on the peaceful protesters the police were protecting, and on Black Lives Matter protesters in general. By doing so, he deepened the tragedy of the murders, and of racial division writ large, by further subtracting from our well of common humanity and understanding.""A party which had lost its political and moral core was, at last, ripe for a man like Donald Trump."
Then it was good that the Lieut. Gov. was at the Dallas Memorial. Though I doubt it, it's possible that a few of the president's words sank in. Republicans, especially those running Texas and Kansas, seem to be totally devoid of brains or empathy.Beaglemom
In addition to the count of Benghazi investigations, I would like to see some other totals: total investigations targeting either Clinton; total number of years they have been under investigation by the GOP; total cost of all of the investigations; total number of "wins" for the GOP. The Clintons have been targeted relentlessly since before he won his first Presidency, and if memory serves me, only lying about Monica Lewinsky merited a "guilty". At this point I think the pocket book the GOP useds to fund their witch hunts (OUR TAXES) should be slammed shut.And, btw, I was raised a good Republican, but the original investigations by Ken Starr so turned me off to the GOP that I have not voted for a Republican since and have come to despise what they have become.
5:44Why it is entirely appropriate for someone of RBG's stature to speak out is because Trump is vulgar, offensive, and temperamentally unqualified to be commander and comforter-in-chief. When we Tweets things such as dumb and mind shot, we are given a clear glimpse into a man who knows no restraint, no decorum. He is a rich man--a feudal lord--used to barking orders and getting his way. His money gives him power and a voice to do and say whatever he wishes. Far too many people are blinded by his wealth. His wealth doesn't make him anything but rich. It doesn't make him capable, decent, or particularly knowledgable. On an intimate and personal level, he may be a fine husband and father, but his public persona is nasty, hateful, and insincere. The party of values is attempting to create a silk purse from a sow's ear by portraying him as something he is not. So yes, he needs to be called out by people of stature. We recall the McCarthy hearings when good people said nothing for far too long.
It was all right for Scalia to mouth off about everything and anything. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is probably alarmed, and rightly so, at the possibility that Trump could become president. Think of handling foreign policy or careful trade negotiations by tweet. Just thinking about it sends chills up my spine. Beaglemom
Slate? Really? A lifetime of good work down the drain because she spoke out against Trump? I think not.
RBG did a brave thing by alerting citizens how dangerous and ill suited Trump is for America and Republicans can't govern ,thanks for the illustration
Did anyone notice shrub at the memorial service for the cops that got killed? The choir was singing "battle hymn of the republic" and everyone was holding hands, except for shrub, who kept doing his best imitation of interpretive marching. Flotus Obama grabbed his hand to still him, while glassy eyed first lady Laura acted like the two never met. starts 126:14Love the cartoon, shows how little we've evolved and those who started two un needed wars got away scott free.
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
