    I’m looking forward to seven GOP senators being indicted in the TrumpRussia probe. It’s coming.

    Now the REAL work of stopping this bill begins, this is just round one. Before Trump can sign this into law it has to clear some very high hurdles to clear.

    Greetings everyone….

    i have officially joined the “Postcards to Voters” network….


    i believe that we must begin to register new voters…and bring them to the polls in 208…we must target DEM and new voters in order to change the face of State Houses and Congress…we also must keep in focus gerrymandering…that in 2021 the census will be done….and if the GOP is still in office that will not bode well for democracy….

    the Republicans betrayal of Democracy is not new….we saw 8 years of the happen under President Obama…ans it continues with the tax scam bill for the wealthy…but keep in mind that the back end …is major destruction of Medicare, Medicaid, SS, ACA, …in one swoop…the Republicans take aim at the New Deal of Roosevelt…the Great Society of LBJ and the ACA of Obama….

    because of the fact that Republicans will vote for Republicans regardless…the Congressional Republicans do not fear the ballot box…a challenge to that idea would be if Moore loses in Alabama…but i believe that Moore will be voted into office…

    GoodWest Coast morning NW & TOD family.
    I’m disgusted with trump & the congressional GOP.
    However, this will definitely motivate us to replace several of them so Congress can repeal and replace this horrible TaxScam!

    Are you with me? Mid-terms, here we come!!!

      OH OH OH NOES!!! WMP/W is very very BAD : Full Moon at 10:47amET! (not 11:47am)… And this, my dear TODObots is exactly what the onset of a Mercury retrograde cycle looks and feels like, wah ~ iPad is trying to crash as well. All I can say is Stay Strong, Keep You The Heart, and may Mercury take down the imposter and all who support him, once and for all.

    each time I think that my feelings for that scumbags mcconnell, ryan and fellow republicans can get worse, they go ahead and do or say something which makes me despise then more. they need to be voted out …. every single one of them from all offices … let them go into the political wildness and start rebuilding their greedy, corrupt, racist, misogynistic anti-science, anti-environment party

      Thanks Paul for your words of wisdom, but for years I’ve listened to you refuse to take the Republicans to the woodshed for their fanciful economic theories. For years I’ve listened to you on the Sunday morning news shows not quite have the balls to call the Republicans out. But hey, better late than never I guess.

        Well said, Don. I had all that burning inside me about him, off and on when I followed him more, but hadn’t put it together.

        No thanks, Krugman, I’m with Don.

    Good day TOD! Nerdy, thank you once again for providing us with a place to ensure we remain sane:-) After this hellish week, it is desperately needed. Seeing the photos of PBO is such a balm.

    Yesterday I had lunch with my brother in law who is visiting from IA. At 70 years old, he is thinking of running for something, he was thinking the state legislature but I urged him to consider the US House, particularly if his rep does not have a challenger. In any event, I am happy to see he is thinking of getting involved.

    The Senate vote last night is reprehensible. I am far less optimistic than some here, I believe if they cannot reach consensus the House simply will pass the Senate version. These people have no principles as they have demonstrated time after time and there quest for a tax cut is never ending. The only thing we can do is hold it over their heads day after day in the next year. But many will be hurt by these actions, and some will die after losing their healthcare.

    For me, I cannot help but be focused on the big picture. In short, we are NOT equipped to hand the likes of Trump as has been amply demonstrated. And he will feel further empowered with this tax win. I simply do not believe we have any idea what this country will look like two years from now. There are no mechanisms in place to force him to do his job such as implementing the sanctions passed by Congress when you have a Congress that is spineless. And as demonstrated with the CFPB debacle we can no longer rely on the courts as more and more Trump appointed judges take the bench. While I believe that ruling in Trump’s favor will be overturned on appeal, it will take time and there is much damage that can be done by Mulvaney in the interim. In the past, I ultimately believed the American people would do the right thing but that illusion fell by the wayside last November.

    So I will keep working and calling, but with far less hope than I’ve had in the past. And i will continue to come here for my daily respite:-) Thanks to everyone who posts wonderful photos of PBO and Michelle!

    I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!

    Its so hard for me to watch any kind of sports on tv because I’m on edge throughout the entire game. Its like I live and die with every play or shot, its not healthy, and every year I say to myself this is the year that I’ll watch but not become emotionally invested.

    What is going on in the Mayoral race in the city of Atlanta? Is it true that a republicans candidate is hidding her party affiliation and instead running as an “independent”? Is it true that instead of supporting a democratic candidate, some prominent dems are supporting the “independent” …. ???????? Someone with better local knowledge please clarify if these are not true. Voting in this election is on Tuesday so please encourage democrats who you know in ATL to go out and vote

    Much is being made of the Trump’s team reaching out to other government to circumvent Obama’s policy…aka UN Security Council vote…because it is a violation of the Logan Act….folks must have forgotten how Senate Republicans wrote a letter to Iran hardliners telling them to oppose the Iran Nuclear Deal….or the time that Speaker Boehner invited Netanyahu to address Congress without telling Obama’s WH…so this circumventing of President Obama, the sitting president is not new…

    Preet Bharara questions the tribute that 45 tweeted today about Rosa Parks (trump probably thinks she was one of Frederick Douglass’ friends).

    Creepy 45 probably wouldn’t have mentioned Rosa Parks, if he knew her connection to Rep. Conyers is part of her story when she resided in Detroit, which there’s NO WAY he knows. Or he’d try to use her in a negative way to get at Conyers, in the current day, which he’d better never do. Ugh.
