She certainly seems to know where to stick pins to get him wound up and do dumb things. The bill to override the bullshit "emergency" was one Senator short of a veto-override tally because Thom Tillis handed Trump his balls in a glass jar and flopped. He is up for reelection. I hope his vote bites him in the ass. He's from South Carolina, which means it may not. There seem to be a whole lot of really dumb or really ignorant people in South Carolina. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. If they aren't dumb or ignorant, they are bigoted Trumpy jackasses.
I'll bet Tillis is re-elected. NC is still a GOP wholly owned subsidiary. Nothing's changed since Abrams "lost" her election.

Pelosi is really trying to keep the Democrats from doing another circular firing squad routine in 20. These new kids on the block need to rein in the invective. It's not that I'm against them. I'm not. I just know that they need independent voters to win in 2020 and the GOP is already starting with the "Socialist Democrats" bullshit and it's working to some degree.

This is Trump's mantra from now till election day. His message is "I may be bad but look at those Socialist, big government, anti-Jew, commies in the Democrat[ic] Party!" Day after day. Week after week. Month after month. Tweets and ralllies everywhere. All the time.

The Democrats need to have an answer to the GOP propaganda and need to be seen as reasonable yet willing to correct Trump's total takeover of the executive by Big Business and their lobbyists. Nearly every cabinet level secretary has ties to business an lobbying firms.

Look how much time and attention has been given to that Mulim congresslady who talked about Israel's screwing the Palestinians. IT's going on three weeks now and they're still talking about that thing. YET...what do we read about H.B.1, the bill with fixes election irregularities? NOTHING! We have a public relations problem with the Democrats. And this isn't the first time.

They'd need 67 votes in the Senate & 290 in House. They're not close to those numbers, but they did get plenty of names that hate the Constitution. Tillis won his seat by 1.5%. With what's going on down there with the only unfilled seat in the House, Carolina elections for the next couple of cycles are going to be under a microscope and he might be vulnerable.

I had an arithmetic brain cramp. I was thinking 60%, not 2/3.

We can only hope the GOP gets punished for their behavior, but I'm not holding my breath. Scorched earth politics that damages the Constitution should be punished. Unfortunately, there seems to be a sizable number of Americans who don't understand that burning down the Constitution is unAmerican. Oh, well. It's a free country. There's no law against hating America.

It's pretty slow moving around here, but jump right in if you like. I would be good to have a new voice.

The fact I stopped in and commented on this thread gives insight to my leanings. Besides thinking we have a narcissist, misogynistic, xenophobe [insert others] with nuclear codes.. no comment. online political discussions can get really nasty!! I come here to talk about bikes. I am getting a Yamaha FJ-09 today.. feeling pretty stoked

Congrats on the bike! We all ride something or another. I have been riding a Daytona 675 since 2006, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
