    I am so sick about the people who went to hear Trump in Billings. What a side show that was. I love Montana but we have some really crazy people here.

      Crazy people everywhere:) No worries. Montana doesn’t have a lock on that one:) There are way more of us than them…we just need to show up and vote. Every time. To rid ourselves of the scourge.

      Also, I see that they had to pay these guys $15/hr to even BE there….it was a pocketbook decision….

        Thanks DF. I know they are everywhere but when I deal with some of these people alot I get real discouraged because some of them I really like. Can’t understand how they can’t see it but I know they listen to Fox News all the time.

        We do have some great get out to vote groups working. I do have hope.

      I love that one of President Obama’s most famous quotes is about the value we should place in ourselves as empowered, competent and compassionate agents of change. Contrast that with the most famous quotes from our current president, disempowering, treating us like we are stupid marks, and always, always making it about himself and his ability to do everything and anything single handed.

    Swalwell: Kavanaugh ‘the wrong judge at the wrong time’

    Rep. Eric Swalwell talks with Rachel Maddow about why the Trump Russia investigation should not just preclude Donald Trump from naming a Supreme Court justice, but should also rule out Brett Kavanaugh.

    Overlap in Kavanaugh nomination, Trump Russia probe becomes clear

    Rachel Maddow points out that between the selection of Brett Kavanaugh for his position on presidential prosecutions and the choice of a lawyer for witnesses in the Trump Russia investigation to process Kavanaugh documents, the Kavanaugh nomination and the Russia investigation are more related than they appear on the surface.

    Excuse the hell outta me, but I don’t believe that a nominee to the highest court in our country should be able to refuse to answer a question about his opinions of law. Bet he’ll have an opinion if he’s confirmed!! Can not understand this. You shouldn’t be able to weasel your way out of answering these questions from Senators, IMO

    Over 4,500 #AR #Medicaid enrollees just lost coverage. This is first cohort from June. That month, about 26,000 subject to requirement, 15,500 exempted via state data, 2,400 reported exemption leaving about 8,000 to comply. Over half now losing coverage. https://t.co/3giwZmK5bJ

    “President Trump is preparing to thrust the country into a crisis as soon as the midterm elections are behind him—irrespective of which party wins the race for control of Congress—and Republicans are lining up to make sure he gets away with it, on the condition that he takes no disruptive steps until after they confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.”

    Hey, Ted Olson. Used to think you were a thoughtful man. Hate to go as far as saying “Ted Olson, you’re dead to me,” over the crap you put forth in support of Kavanaugh, just because you “knew him once” in the GWB administration, so I’ll just say I no longer think you are a thoughtful man.

      He was the first guy I saw being relieved of trump duty, brought in another ‘paid to attend’ person to replace him. Someone did not like his reactions to trump, quick someone interview him.

    If the Mueller probe is actually following the path prosecutors typically follow when investigating a mafia case, we’re in the final stage. The case has been built and it is now time to interview the kingpin. It strikes me that Mueller might not see Trump’s testimony as that crucial, except to determine whether or not there will be an added charge of perjury from a president who seems literally incapable of telling the truth.

        I agree with you completely, 0388jojothecat. The last straw was the decision by the NYT to continue to pursue the emails just as the Russian link to the Trump campaign was being exposed. The worst possible editorial decision ever made. At least the Washington Post opted to pay more attention to the Russian connection than to delver once again into the fake hysteria over Hillary Clinton’s email server, which never was hacked.

    I am a government worker. I have to take Sexual/Harassment training on the web. One of the things that is considered “harassment” in the workplace is name calling. Why does an elected Government Officials get to name-call, harass, etc., while in office and keep their job although they were elected. Many of our political officials are not mature enough to behave like an adult how the hell can they run a state or country. We need to not necessarily make it a “law” but something has to change that someone who is too mentally immature to run our governments can not
    be on the ballot. Maybe this is the undoing of our democracy if the majority of the people in the country are mentally unstable. When stupid wars, sale of our politicians to the highest bidder, that a foreign country can run our country this is just insane.

    Listening to Randi Rhodes this afternoon and she’s playing PBO’s speech.

    I was listening to Thom Hartmann and he got a caller today from a white female who complained that about Democrats did not help HER a single white elderly female who lost her house. She wanted to know why Democrats are always beating up on the middle class and not going after illegal immigrants and minorities. Like any of these things cause her to lose her home.

    Cowardly Thom failed to tell her that the majority of middle class people voted for Bush who relaxed the real estate rules to allow people to borrow heavily on their homes. She probably got one of those adjustable rate mortgages that went up so much until she could no longer afford the mortgage and lost her home. So she BLAMES the Democrats and not the Republicans whose policies caused her to lose her home.

    He also told her that 53% of the white middle class women voted for Trump. Then she went on to say that Santa Barbara, CA is majority minority. That is when I knew she was full of Shit! Santa Barbara is 75% white 38% Hispanic/Latin and less than 2% AA. It is a mix of a lot of different people. Why can’t middle class see the wealthy is STEALING from them! Randi is saying this right now. Fear the brown people who are taking your jobs, your homes away from you. It’s because the brown people felt entitled to buying homes they could not afford it crashed the entire real estate industry. How the hell can a minority group bring down the entire real estate industry when all kind of folks were borrowing on their homes and was told, don’t worry, the prices will keep going up and the adjustable rate mortgage will go up gradually so you’ll be able to refinance before that happens. Well so many minorities and middle class whites were LIED too.
