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

He is treating the American presidency as an opportunity both for nepotism and for personal enrichment. His first appointments signal that the far right tenor of his campaign will continue into his presidency, as well as the fact that he is way out of his depth.Against this background, some Democrats are hoping that at least there are a few points of convergence. This is a huge mistake.""Some Congressional Democrats, likewise, seem to think there may be areas of common ground, especially in the areas of trade policy and infrastructure. This is also mostly delusional.""It’s one thing to ritually declare that if Trump truly supports policies that help working Americans, Democrats will work with him. It’s another thing to believe that he will.""President Obama spent eight painful years seeking common ground with Republicans who spurned every effort in favor of working to destroy Obama. And these were actually normal if rightwing politicians, not neo-fascists. If there was no common ground to be had with Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, there is surely none with Donald Trump."
It's been said that a person who receives their livelihood from believing a certain way can not be convinced or swayed by facts. Frustrating, amirite?
This reverts back to the bully thingy. Out of spite this type of personality will say no I don't believe in science. Also the plain just stupid people will say no it doesn't make sense. or the political suicidaly insanely will say, I don't care about science I will destroy the world to make a penny if my party says so.
Florida will be the climate deniers canary in a coal mine. Miami is already experiencing it. Hope the basements in Mar-a-Lago start flooding soon too.
Rick Scott can scream until his up to his tonsils in brine. Trump doesn't believe in climate change so no natural disaster money for ol' Ricky. There won't be any to spare once he's given it all to his über rich buddies and taken a healthy chunk for himself.
I'm taking a lot of shit from my Republican friends because, according to them, we Democrats think they are stupid.In response, I offer this:Tom Bonier, CEO of the polling firm Targetsmart, pointed out on Monday that “almost 20,000,000 Trump voters would lose time and a half overtime” under a Republican plan to reverse regulations put in place by President Barack Obama. As Forrest Gump's momma observed: "Stupid is as stupid does."
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
