    Yes the GOP are about to fill our stockings with coal and theirs with gold. Something is not right and there are no republicans left to save us from the tax give away to the rich and the sabotage of the ACA. They truly have sold their souls and our country.
    I sure miss our POTUS and FLOTUS ;(

    GE TODville.

    Hope people see this, since I’m posting late for the east coast.

    It’s truly unbelievable HOW BAD the #GOPtaxscam bill is, but this takes the cake — in addition to the GOP’s laser-focus on marginalizing non-WASPs, they have now ratcheted up their WAR ON WOMEN (and other sexual assault victims, presumably children too[?])…

    There is no bottom to this “party’s” (aka Koch/Russian) depravity.

    Not holding my breath, but hope this slows down Sinclair’s purchase of Tribune Media (story originally published in the Hollywood Reporter — lawsuit is based in Los Angeles):

          Love his work — being subversive by using LIGHT!

          Also, can you believe that GOP are taxing sexual assault victims for the full amount of any settlement? Sounds like double taxation to me, but of course the attorneys are wealthy enough to evade paying taxes on their haul.

          Beyond deplorable, if you ask me.

            Yes, I just saw that word about “taxing sexual assault victims” here and I am disgusted beyond belief. FIRST, who would think of such an awful thing to include? OMG. No morality or decency spotted in any of these RWNJs.

    No matter your age, you have never before lived in an America approaching it’s collapse.

    The Civil War is no comparison – a foreign government was not in control of the Executive & Legislative Branches of the Union.

    The Revolutionary War is no comparison because that War was about rejecting and defeating a foreign government.

    You’re now living in a Nation at War with a significant fraction of the enemy embedded within.

    And, the folk who’ve been trying to warn all Americans, for quite awhile, of the unprecedented nature of the warfare are hardly ‘conspiracy theorists.’

    Goodnight TOD ….

      Just like President Obama did before leaving office they continue to sound the alarm.

      The GOP know what transpired during the 2016 election and they are raping our treasury. They don’t care because they are figuring it won’t be any funds to operate the government and the have nots will starve to death and die from lack of medical care.

      • December 20, 2017 at 8:44 am

        Oh meta, NEEDED to see that. I’m like all other posters. Little hope, angry, frustrated………What do we do? Did anyone see a tweet from Joy Reid that her Republican source told her they are NOT listening to the American people…….are cashing out. I’ve noticed in the past two weeks that every time I send a RESIST message, I quickly get an automated and “canned” message from my (3) reps offices. That means the office gets my message and simply hits an automated reply. 😦 Doesn’t matter what I said.

        • December 20, 2017 at 9:34 am

          Guys, I couldn’t sleep last night just thinking about all the horrible things this bill does. And the fact that the GOP is taking such a disgusting victory lap over it, Orange Satan is holding his first solo presser in a long time and the fact that they just DO NOT CARE about 99% of the America’s population…….I’m so freaking aggravated. And did you see what they’ve done to Puerto Rico? OH MY GOD.

          So when I saw this tweet about PBO this morning, it really warmed my heart. That he is following up with those he freed, encouraging them every step of the way, it’s just pure GOLD.

    • 60 desertflower
      December 20, 2017 at 8:02 am

      The story


      President Donald Trump claimed in a November speech promoting his tax plan that his focus “is on helping the folks who work in the mailrooms and the machine shops of America. … The people that like me best.” But in reality, the final tax bill that emerged late Friday from the conference committee focuses on corporations and the wealthy. According to the Tax Policy Center (TPC), the top 1 percent of families by income would receive a larger share of the bill’s cuts in the first year than the bottom 60 percent of families combined. And in fact, state-level data from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) show that in 2019, the bill would give $5 billion more to foreign investors who own corporate stock than the combined families in the bottom 80 percent of the income distribution in every state that voted for President Trump.

    Good day TOD! I was so disgusted last night that I had to turn off the TV and stay away from social media. To see these assholes taking a victory lap over this disgusting bill Is beyond comprehension. So instead, I spent time going through Chasing Light and reliving the good that Michelle did while in the White House. What a contrast with the invisible first lady that is there now. But I also had to shake my head when thinking about the uproar the one time she exited Air Force One in shorts. How the GOP has fallen that the first lady they put in the white house has nude photos all over the internet.

    What is manifestly clear at this point is they will continue to harm this country In every way they can while they remain in office. I only hope that the Democrats grow a spine and will use their leverage on budget negotiations and raising the debt ceiling to ensure that CHIP is funded and a clean DREAM Act is passed. But I am not overly optimistic at this point. What a sad week for our country.

    In my early twenties I learned that I could do stupid shit, but it was going to be very expensive. So from that moment on I made it my business not to be so stupid, or at lest keep it to a minimum. Now that I’m in my fifties I’ve been able to afford my stupidity, it helps that my mistakes have been minor though. But I’m worried about those that can’t afford to pay for their mistakes, like the working poor all over this country that voted for the Republicans. This tax bill is a monster, it is a wrecking ball designed to cause pain to those that can’t afford to get out of its way. If we don’t get out and vote in the midterms my fear is that we might never recover from the pain that is headed our way.

    Just catching up on the news. It’s a bummer indeed.

    It would be a miracle should Americans escape PTSD with Republicans in power.
    Just as well that they strip off the social safety nets … no amount of Medicare or Medicaid or Medi anything can fix the stupid that’s their base!

    I am just seeing the press conference where all old white men with token AA in the front row … practically giving PP an imaginary you know what! I think he has them all by their kittens!

    You know what would be lovely … if someone like HRC would switch affiliation from D to R. It would be worth to see some right-wingers pop a vein … OK OK I am only kidding.

    There, rant over!

    Tod’ers, all i have to say is, there has been so much progress done by the foot soldiers since the 2016 election … all of you have worked tirelessly.
    Enjoy this holiday season with your loved ones … re-group and then stay focused. Look after yourselves. I believe everything happens for a reason – just don’t ask me what that reason is. Perhaps all this has to happen for something more positive to happen. I hope the resistance create stronger communities across the US. You have a beautiful country …

      Since Cable News became profitable, CorpNewsMedia started chasing after $$, & many on TV, Cable & even some many reporters becoming not Only Rich, but were and are making Millions, Journalism has become the Elites, looking out for their Pay Checks, Perks & the interest of the Powerful & Well Connected.
      The Rich take care of their own. MSM seek sensationalism & ignore issues that affect most average Americas.
