One of my gravest concerns is what appears to be a plan to make nuclear weapons conventional in our wars in the immediate future.
Don't you think that it is a tad excessive for a kind, benevolent country to be at war for 93% of its years in existence?
Progressive insurgents are launching challenges to Democratic members of Congress in some of the country’s bluest districts, sparked by deep frustration with the party establishment and anti-Trump anger.
Most of the challengers are long shots at the moment. But some are putting a scare into entrenched incumbents, thanks to their muscular fundraising and a message of liberal disaffection on issues including Wall Street, criminal justice reform and single-payer health care.
Six veteran incumbents already face energetic primary challenges from younger candidates in New York and Massachusetts. In Illinois, two Chicago-based members are being targeted from the left.
“I think Donald Trump getting elected president is part of it — the old institutional political knowledge we had about the way things works clearly just doesn’t work. And now people are knocking down the door,” said Bill Hyers, a political consultant and campaign strategist for New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. “There’s a new energy and excitement out there in a new way, and it's palpable.”
"Something big is stirring in American politics, and it’s a more than a moment, it’s a movement. Massachusetts is the original ‘old boys' club,’” said Lee. “Voters are fed up with the status quo and see a vote for a woman candidate as a vote to shake up the system in a sea of male, mostly white, politicians.”
I'm surprised you continue to have a "conversation" with this pro-communist wanna be.
Our military has gotten out of control.
Instead of more build up and more invasions, we need to wrap up these crazy and useless wars.
It's a worn argument, but, the longer we attack and kill, the more we radicalize huge swaths of population.
The terrorists they seek to kill are America's own creation.
If we just had a statesman president, instead of a gooney bird -
Protecting ourselves from those who seek to harm us is neither crazy nor useless.
A few days after Donald Trump was elected President in November 2016, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell placed a call to incoming White House counsel Don McGahn. McConnell knew Trump had a chance to change the ideological makeup of the federal court system in a way not seen since the Reagan era, but only if McConnell and McGahn could get him to tighten up a disorderly political operation, and fast. “I said, Don, we’ve got an opportunity here to have a huge long-term impact on the country,” McConnell recalls, sitting in a cushioned chair in his Capitol office one day last month. He made McGahn a promise to move qualified judges through the Senate confirmation process as quickly as the White House could send them.
The following is old in today's standard, written on 3/8/18
These judges will be on the bench for decades. And it's why I have so little regard for the Dems who supported Stein and the Sanders voters who sat it out — and are still threatening to abandon the party. Hypocritical evangelicals had no trouble voting for Trump; all they cared about was Roe vs. Wade.
and stop pretending you live in some dreamland.
