  1. Trump just can’t be president!

    I know we made it through eight full years of Dubya, but barely.

    Ronald Reagan: “Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”

    Mitch McConnell: “Don’t worry; if there’s a problem with our government, then our government is the solution.”

    Said Mitch McConnell: “Well, one thing I’m pretty calm about is that this is nowhere near the most divisive period in American history. But what protects us in this country against big mistakes being made is the structure, the Constitution, the institutions.”

    He added: “No matter how unusual a personality may be who gets elected to office, there are constraints in this country. You don’t get to do anything you want to.”

    So is Mitch admitting that he has been full of shit for the past eight years when he told us that Obama was single-handedly ending democracy and freedom and changing America as we know it?

    What do YOU think? I personally think the system is not enough protection when it comes to Tea Baggers like Trump and Cruz and Huelskamp and …

      Mitch McConnell was the first Republican to openly brag about the #1 job of every Republican was to make Obama fail.

      Where in their oath of office does it state they are to bring down their president?

      Did I miss that memo???

    When I hear Republicans yammering about how much they want an honest person and a non-politician in the White House – I have two words for them – Jimmy Carter.

    President Carter was not the best politician in the world – but he was the most honest person – IMHO

    And who was it that brought in the likes of Jerry Falwell and his Immorality Boys to smear the good name of Jimmy Carter ?

    Can you say Ronald Reagan …

    Reagan started this decimation of the middle class/working class Americans. George W. Bush just about finished the job.

    I don’t even want to contemplate how far down the toilet Trump will take us.

    Let’s not forget – Trump fancies himself to be another Reagan. And in that thinking – I totally agree with The Donald. He is just like Reagan. Another nail in the coffin of America – IMHO

      BTW – Is it more than coincidence that Jerry Falwell’s kid endorsed Trump very early in the GOP primary process?

      Hmmm….is history about to repeat itself….

    Is this spooky or what? This Boris looks a lot like Donald Trump – even down to the hair.

    But how ironic this is the guy that started this Brexit Movement and now he is bailing out.

    Hmm….too much reality for the carnival barker to know people are mad and if he cannot deliver on those promises he made (truthfully, who could deliver on those promises) – he is taking the fastest road out of town?

      I saw a humorous comment on a blog the other day.

      Donald Trump’s mother had twin boys. One looked like her with his orange tan. The other son is an Albino. But they both got that same hair.

    On a serious note – is Paul Ryan finally doing the right thing? Or is there a GOP trick up his sleeve?

    As I’ve shared numerous times, I grew up in a house with guns. All of my friends grew up in houses with guns.

    I don’t remember all these mass shootings. All this senseless and mindless killing.

    Of course, back then we didn’t have a constant 24/7 diet of violence on t.v., movies, video games or even our popular songs with lyrics about killing cops and the bitches/whores.

    We also did not have a constant marketing campaign on television for every new and old drug that Big Pharma can make billions from flooding the country with them.

    As we have been hearing, our current opioid addiction epidemic is often started by the legal prescriptions for pain killers. The most recent ‘druggie’ is more likely to be some average American that has been given pain killers legally and then when that source is stopped – these folks turn to the street dealers to get their ‘fix’. And in some cases, the price of the street dealer’s narcotics is cheaper than the legal narcotics prescribed by your doctor. Now isn’t that a real mess..

    Take a good look at your t.v. watching and just count the number of ads for drugs – it will astound you.

    Then our mental health system in America has been broken for a long, long time.

    So – when we have a society filled with drug-addicted people, a lot of folks with mental health issues and then we have easy access to as many guns as you could possibly want – including assault rifles with those high-capacity magazines filled with enough bullets to mow down a crowd – is this just a recipe for disaster looking for a place to land?

      I am always puzzled as to why Kompassionate Kristian Konservatives are so obsessed with what is going on between their fellow Americans’ legs than the actual harmful things we allow in our society to become ‘normal’.

      I don’t give a fat rat’s ass about anybody’s personal sex life – as long as they are not hurting children and it is consensual between adults.

      But I do give a fat rat’s ass about Republicans who claim to be so worried about our safety that they want to ban all Muslims – but yet these same Republicans continue to want everyone on the No Fly suspected Terror List to be able to legally buy assault rifles, guns and all the ammo their cold hard cash can buy for them.

      I will NEVER be able to wrap my head around that logic.



    Newt Gingrich or Chris Christie qulaified to be a heart beat away from the presidency?

    And Hell – the way Trump is, I wouldn’t put it past him to quit halfway through the first four years if he manages to get into the White House. I’m sure if there was some big business deal where he could make more billions , Trump would dump his responsibilities as president and take his private jet home to New York to cash in.

    Speaking of those leaders who quit halfway through their first term in office…….Alaska Governor Sarah Palin ring any bells???

    • There are Trumpettes who sincerely want him to pick Sarah Palin as V.P. choice. But the Trump campaign has said they are not looking at any female candidates.

      But -then again – the Trump campaign has said a lot of things that have been untrue or they have had to back pedal really fast….
