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
The reason this election didn't seem normal is bcs it wasn't normal so there r no normal solutions. It wasn't an election, it was a coup pic.twitter.com/4ZOPhUNz3O

Yes. And now what are Americans going to do about it? President Obama cannot hand America over to this global crime cult.
Why must President Obama always clean up the shit that voters are responsible for? Votes matter. How you vote or don't vote in local, state, midterm, and general elections MATTER. A vote is not an opinion. It is a hiring decision. When will "the people" clean up their own act?
I agree, Anon at 5:06 am. Besides, the GOP is just aching for us Democrats to blame President Obama. Well, let's not fall for their fakery. The GOP brought this disaster upon the country; their lies and skullduggery have been undermining all that this country has thought it stood for. Now they're showing their true colors - and they aren't pretty.Beaglemom
I can't help ponder how greatly suicide rates might escalate under Trump. They're certainly going to decline.
2:27 are you missing a "not" in your last sentence?
Finally. Take our country back from Treason infested republicans has true meaning.
No wonder I've been feeling so depressed since the election day that will "live in infamy." Headline today in the Washington Post states that oil and gas industries will dominate once Trump is in power; the image in my mind since the middle of the night of those first photographs of Planet Earth from space which were so awe inspiring decades ago. At the time many of us realized how hard we have to work to preserve that beautiful sphere. And now we have our future - Donald Trump, the Koch brothers and Vladimir Putin. What a dismal prospect for all life on earth.Beaglemom
You are not alone. I'm right there with you, Beaglemom. It was why I pushed so hard, as you remember, on this blog, for Bernie because he spoke up loudly about inequality (had a New Deal-type financial plan supported by economists -- even among the 1%)), had huge grassroots monetary & volunteering support, had the youth vote big time and 79% of Democrats Abroad voted for him in the Primary. He could have beaten Trump, IMHO, in those working class states which made all the different in EC numbers. But I have to believe there is a way out of this frightening mess -- just to get up in the morning.
How dismal to awaken to news of the Comrade Trumpov tweeting his totally insane blubber over a Vanity Fair article on some restaurant review. It is as if Don is Sarah and Sarah is Don. The same simpleminded pettiness and vindication no matter how banal. The air is still heavy with Russian hacking headlines which may be one of the reasons this con job is ready to terrorize us as president. No comment on the Aleppo butchering so as not to antagonize Putin. The Don concentrates on the singular event that occupies his beady-ass mind. This is why we need to write and call our representatives and protest peacefully on January 20. Our earth and children are too precious to do otherwise.
Notice the fake mole democrats jumping for trump.
Here comes the con way truck. Full of most trusted friends and media.
Cut the crap con way. Get a new job.
What is weird is still he has his kids in on meetings, like tech meeting. America, I think he is too old and can't think right. He can't do anything on his own. He is weak. I think it is time to really stop fugly with INCOMPETENCE. He really is weak. Trump is weak. It is the truth. No wonder russia was able to do things.
I think he has some dementia issues, maybe early Alzheimer's. When you add that to his probable ADD and narcissism, you have a mess.
The last 6 or so years of Tinyhands' father's life was spent dribbling into his incontinence panties as he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Wonder if that's what has been keeping Drumpf up all night tweeting bullshit, he's scared to death of impending dementia.
When Trump has his kids sit in on his meetings we should call it like it is-he is having his business partners/personnel/whatever sit in on his meetings. With that I have no doubt it is to cover for his weaknesses, besides planting seeds for further personal gain from his elected position.
So scary & true. Fascist takeover and now kleptocracy & autocracy the likes of which we've never seen.
It's not over. Look what they're doing in North Carolina. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/roy-cooper-republicans-north-carolina_us_5852cadbe4b012849c05d4dc"Fresh off losing control of the governor’s seat, North Carolina Republicans are now trying to undermine the election results through the state legislature by pushing bills that would limit the power of incoming Democratic Governor-elect Roy Cooper."
Kirk Douglas, who just celebrated his 100th birthday, lived through the McCarthy era. He has a lot to day about today's political climate and what to do about it. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-palumboliu/hollywood-legend-teaches-_b_13630130.html?section=us_politics“As actors it is easy for us to play the hero. We get to fight the bad guys and stand up for justice. In real life, the choices are not always so clear. The Hollywood Blacklist, recreated powerfully on screen in Trumbo, was a time I remember well. The choices were hard. The consequences were painful and very real. During the blacklist, I had friends who went into exile when no one would hire them; actors who committed suicide in despair. My young co-star in Detective Story (1951), Lee Grant, was unable to work for twelve years after she refused to testify against her husband before the House Un-American Activities Committee. I was threatened that using a Blacklisted writer for Spartacus — my friend Dalton Trumbo — would mark me as a “Commie-lover” and end my career. There are times when one has to stand up for principle. I am so proud of my fellow actors who use their public influence to speak out against injustice. At 98 years old, I have learned one lesson from history: It very often repeats itself. I hope that Trumbo, a fine film, will remind all of us that the Blacklist was a terrible time in our country, but that we must learn from it so that it will never happen again.”The entire article is a great read.
Good for Kirk Douglas.In these days when the GOP seems to be slavering over Vladimir Putin, former Communist KGB agent, I frequently think of the late 1940's and early 1950's when the careers of so many creative Americans were tarnished if not ruined. My family bought its first television set so that my mother could watch the televised Army-McCarthy hearings. My parents could not have been more delighted when McCarthy met his downfall. The GOP sure has forgotten its roots. For example, the father of the Koch brothers made his fortune in Stalin's Soviet Union only to run back to the US when he suddenly feared being imprisoned for having profited personally from the Soviet gas and oil industry. By the late 1940's when the House Un-American Activities Committee got so busy, Papa Koch himself got busy helping to found that right-wing bastion, the John Birch Society, thus protecting himself and his wealth from possibly being besmirched for his profiteering in Stalin's Russia.Now the Koch brothers and their minions in state legislatures and in Congress enact their wishes into state and federal laws and determine political agendas that affect all of us.Beaglemom
