A day that will live in infamy.

My whole life has been about beating the bullies.

So I know what I am going to be doing the next four years.

How about all of you?


  1. ...the day the music died...
    The day Demrocracy died.
    The day truth died.
    The day cheaters won, which puts paid to the phrase: "cheaters never prosper" -- but this could still happen...

  2. Already working on it. Been researching Robert Mercer. One of his good friends is George Gilder.
    This will shock your socks off.

  3. My first march was in 1967. It's been 50 years and I'm no longer young. I'm tired and my feet hurt. However, I have 6 grand daughters and won't stop until I'm in the ground. Pardon my language, but fuck trump and the russian he rode in on.

    Frankly, Grypohen, it depends. I too have spent quite a bity of time fighting bullies in a lot of different ways. And I'm more than willing to fight the good fight, but not the stupid one. And a stupid one is fighting for complacent people. Oh, I'm NOT talking about the really too busy poor, or sick or addicted person who can't join the fight. I'm talking about the middle class person who has that "well, it's not affecting me, (much) so I'll just keep goign to my kids sports events, coming home to watch TV or sit behind a computer, drinking a craft beer or two, not bringing up politics at home, work or with friends (or even thinking about it) becuase it rocks the boat. People who put "nice" above everything else. Those people simply aren't worth fighting for.

    So I'll fight, but there's an expiration date on my efforts if the complacent and capable don't get off their asses, too. In that case, I'm outta here.

    I saw a mini-video of Trump signing what was apparently his first executive order - to take back a program that allowed low-income home owners to get better mortgage rates on their FHA housing loans. He was surrounded by family, including some children, the vice president and his wife, Paul Ryan and others from Congress and they all wore grins that covered their faces. They did this while they made life harder for the lower income working class, supposedly the class of people who had voted for him.

    Why did they have children there? Was it because this whole thing is a kind of vile joke, the act of a treasonous party that wants only the destruction this country? I think the ultimate intention is to make life so hard for all, but especially those already struggling, that they will become all the more angry. And then tell them that it's all the fault of Democrats, President Obama, and minorities. This will cause the chaos and "carnage" that Trump promised in his speech and will reduce this country to a fascist state. The image, however, of all those smiling faces as so many people who need some help got cut off, will not leave me. It was a kind of dreadful omen of our future.

      Ryan and turtlehead were laughing when trump was ranting about the do nothing Congress, I don't think they realize he was also talking about them.

    That program didn't only help low income homeowners. We used it when we had to moe, thanks to GWB caused job losses. Then the Mnuchin exacerbated housing crisis meant our home there was harder to sell. We had the 20% but it was tied up in the old, unliquid home asset. This will hurt manymor ethan Cheeto face thinks.

    When the founding fathers told King George to stuff it they were not supported by everyone in the colonies. To be sure there were plenty who agreed and they showed their support by volunteering to join General Washington in the field of battle. The remainder of folks are what we face now - incurious, don't rock the boat types who just want to get on with their lives.

    I fight because I resemble our firebrand ancestors. Per the Constitution it is our patriotic and civic duty to stand up to bullies. Once we've won (and we will) changes must be made to ensure the stupid opinion of the ignorant no longer equals the facts of the well informed.

    I was going to march today but I've been betrayed by my body. I won't be there in the physical but I will be with my brothers and sisters in spirit. The resistance lives on.

    The party is over and traitor trump is going to have to put his money where his butt hole mouth is.

    He isn’t going to be able to take credit for Obama’s hard work, he is going to have to do his own.

    It remains to be scene if he is going to spend his time in office, continuing to get revenge or is he going to work for his supporter’s, all 40% of them. I have no expectations that he will be doing anything good for the 60% of us that don’t support him.

    I feel the best way to fight trump is at the LOCAL LEVEL, midterms are coming up next year and we have the governorship and a senate seat up for grabs in MI. We need to elect a Democrat to the governors office and keep the senate seat, this can help fight donnie.

    I know that his strategy is to keep us all demoralized by the constant torrent of destructive acts and policies, that we are simply too overwhelmed to ACT. I KNOW THIS. But, I also know how readily it COULD work, since I am fighting these feelings myself. Take time for your own health & well-being each day--as I intend to do-- but please remember this. Don't let him destroy us. Don't give up the fight.

    Turtlehead McConnell’s plan for the next 4 years?
    ‘They’ll pull the trigger’: Robert Reich explains how the GOP is playing Trump until they can dump him

    ....“They’ll play along for a while,” the unidentified friend said. “They’ll get as much as they want – tax cuts galore, deregulation, military buildup, slash all those poverty programs, and then get to work on Social Security and Medicare – and blame him. And he’s such a fool he’ll want to take credit for everything.”

    Asked what happens then, the Reich’s friend laughed and said, ‘They like [Vice President] Pence.”

    “Pence is their guy. They all think Trump is out of his mind,” he explained. “So the moment Trump does something really dumb – steps over the line – violates the law in a big stupid clumsy way … and you know he will …”

    “They impeach him?” Reich asked.

    “You bet. They pull the trigger,” was the reply.

      I've been saying this for the past month.

      Yep, he's a useful idiot for now because they know he'll go nuts and do as much as he can unilaterally using executive orders but once his usefulness is worn out he's out the door.

    I'm in too. Let's fight this fucker!

    It's a shot in the arm regarding the importance of the upcoming midterms, that's for sure. It doesn't look likely that we'll deliver a majority but we at least can't lose any seats.

  13. Echoing Reich as well. Trump will be a tool for the Republicans in Congress. They'll use him until he's done as much damage as they want him to do. Then they'll find a reason (there will be many) to impeach him and move forward with Pence.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
