I'm not at all shocked by the news about the FBI informant. Russia was interfering in the 2016 election, and it appeared that some members of the Trump campaign may be helping. Carter Page had been under suspicion for years as a result of his contacts with Russian spies. What the hell was the Federal Bureau of Investigation supposed to do? Um, investigate.

Republicans are implying that a political campaign is off limits to law enforcement. The argument is unspoken because it's complete nonsense. Members of a political campaign cannot act with impunity.

Aweee. Thank you for noticing I left.

Busy at work. Finally moved out of the slums. And Iíve been taking more time to spend with my penis.

I also came to a conclusion about sharing thoughts on here. Maybe Iíll talk about it sometime. Too much to write from a cell phone.

Well, to be precise, they bring them to my door, not yours. As far as I know.

re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

For the next few weeks, we're just going to hear attacks on the Russia investigation. Team Trump just outed this FBI informant. Next, the inspector general's report will be released, and there is sure to be at least some bad news for the FBI in there. I wouldn't be surprised if the outing was intentionally timed to occur shortly before the release of the IG report. For months I've been predicting that Republicans will try to use the IG report to act against the Russia investigation. I think that they see it as their last good opportunity.

Rosenstein and Mueller are sitting ducks right now. I hope that they see the writing on the wall and have something up their sleaves. If Mueller is not ready to drop some indictments on Trump associates that relate to collaboration with Russia, I hope that he has a Plan B or something.

I'm predicting it right now. Trump will attempt a major gambit within the next 4-8 weeks. I put the odds at 90% plus. I could be wrong, and I'll admit it if so. I hope I'm wrong.

5th largest economy in the world, (someone needs to support those Federal Government teat sucking Red states), budget surplus, and a raining day fund.

Yep, California sure needs to be made great again by John Cox.

It's also about damaging our ability to cultivate CI's in the future- when members of a corrupt and traitorous political party are able to expose them, just like that.

There really needs to be some executions after all this is done.

This is how atrocities happen. And for the evangelical religious right, it's not about evolution, you assholes.

re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

Not sure where to put this. Being this is the Trump Era, I guess this is as good a place as any.

Over Mothers day, I got into a shouting match with my 71 yr old aunt. She didn't vote for Trump, but having lived in the south the last nearly 50 years, she's an uncritical Republican conservative voter. No matter how many times they fuck her over, she'll keep coming back for more....because, liberals.

I thought, since we've tried to not broach politics in our last few visits, that she was coming to understand just how corrupt not only Trump was, but her beloved Republican Party.
Nope. No such deal.
She's still of the "as long as it makes liberals head's explode, then it's fine with me" crew.
In our short little knock down, she covered all the Fox News talking points
- How corrupt Hillary is
- How awful Obama was for the economy
- How well her 401K is doing (seriously, she actually said this)
etc, etc.

That exchange has had me depressed all week. This is a relative I love, but who will always be on the wrong side of history. The villains of our age have her number, and she'll always respond to their dog whistles. Very disappointing.

This epic thread isn't necessarily her life, but it could have been. So easily. The last 40 years though are definitely a bullseye.

Sure, I'd like to hear about it sometime. About the conclusion, not the penis

Either we are animals or we're not, and no amount of trying to putting a pretty face on things changes that. That's the logical conclusion of evolutionary beliefs, and playing parlor tricks with your mind can't escape that logic.

And, while we're at it, you might consider applying your Anne Frank quote to the topic of abortion as it fits perfectly toward that atrocity resulting from dehumanizing others.
