    @BritenessRight! We should just cut out all those checks to the people relying on social security, wipe out all government scientific research projects (NSF, NIH, USDA and more), close all national parks and wildlife refuges (who needs them?), close down the FDA and USDA inspection services (drug and other substances don’t need monitoring nor does our food supply), and then we’ll all be happy campers….NOT. This is about the most incredibly obtuse statement I have ever seen on government services.

    Donald Trump is destroying the United States’ standing in the world — and the dictators couldn’t be happier

    Almost a year into the Trump administration, there is a growing body of nonpartisan (such as Freedom House) and bipartisan work examining the damage that President Trump is doing to democratic institutions here and abroad.Conservative Evan McMullin’s Stand Up Ideas teamed up with Protect Democracy, a group founded by former Obama administration officials and now including conservatives, to produce a comprehensive report addressing the nature and scope of the problem.

    My rep is the author of the bill to set up a health examination board for evaluation of the president. I don’t want to dump him—-he’s really trying to do something good. There are good people in government, so keep those (and chuck those who have forgotten their oath of service, and there’s a bunch of them!).

    This shutdown crisis was (at least) 17 years in the making. Here’s how we got here.

    Mitch and Co. thought they could use him to advance their agenda. They were right to some extent, but they also are getting a much more than they bargained for. I hope they enjoy the hell they’re complicit in making here.

    Why is there no statute of limitations on illegal immigration but there is on almost all other crimes? And in this case, the person does not bear the responsibility for his illegal immigration. Had he been legally in the country, serving in the military would automatically have given him the option of citizenship. Should this option not also be granted to the Dreamers?
