So many talking heads and media wigs… and academics… seem to not be accepting how malevolent the Trump chaos is.

Trump is set out to destroy democratic institutions, comity among Americans, and foreign policy as the US has pursued since WWII.

There is no reason to give him any deference, on anything.

Their taxes are going to go down. It’s all about “rational self interest” and “fuck you I’ve got mine.” They’re hoping they can lock in whatever gain Trump’s presidency provides while still retaining some vestigial sense of honor and integrity when he’s gone.

Put this in late in the last thread, but…

This is the GOP. And by extension, this is our country. They want racism. They crave it. They want us fucking dead, and they’ll get it in degrees the way they’re working.

So, to celebrate, I fixed up a skillet of garbanzos con espinacas and served it with smoked pork chops (MrBWS being a carnivore and all…)

Star Tribune: Black family in Delano moving after new home burglarized, scarred by racist graffiti
“Next time it’s going to be fire,” read a note left at the house, the home’s builder said.

What the family had thought was their dream home when they bought it in December was now painted with racial slurs and swastikas — both inside and out. “Get out” was spray-painted on an exterior wall. The vandals left a note, too: “Next time it’s going to be fire.”

The Delano home of Latanza Douglas, her husband and their three foster children was burglarized and vandalized Sunday evening. Along with the threatening messages, several electronic gaming systems were stolen, according to the Wright County Sheriff’s Office.

Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Todd Hoffman said the slurs included racially offensive symbols that he declined to describe. The case also could be investigated by federal authorities if the vandalism can be classified as a hate crime, he added.

Now the black family is packing up the multilevel house in the 200 block of 2nd Street SW., ready to move to a community where they can feel more accepted, said Naresh Uppal, whose company built the home and will buy it back from them as they try to start fresh.

“They are packing right now,” Uppal said Thursday afternoon. “They’re having to move and basically start all over again. Which is very, very sad. They weren’t even there for three months.”

Uppal, who is acting as a spokesman for the family, which has requested privacy, has started a GoFundMe campaign on their behalf. He said the couple moved into the home in December with the foster children he described as “at risk.” The children range in age from 9 to 12; two of them are black and the other white.

He said the money raised online at tinyurl.com “will be used to alleviate costs associated with moving, as the family no longer feels safe in their home.” The family also has expenses to cover replacing damaged items. More than $9,800 has been pledged as of late Thursday afternoon toward a goal of $25,000.

Uppal, who runs Advanced Home Inc., said the family came home to find the slurs and a swastika spray-painted on interior and exterior walls, items stolen or damaged, and trash thrown around. TVs, a new couch and family photos were also spray-painted, said Uppal, who also had rented to Latanza Douglas for many years.

“These kids don’t cause any trouble in school or anything like that,” Uppal said. “The kids are shocked. It’s unfortunate that this is the world we live in.”

What continues to weigh heavily on the Army is that they didn’t drum his ass out. They allowed him to resign rather than court-martialing him for two violations of the UCMJ. And he immediately began touring the wingnut welfare circuit, riding it to Congress and then into a career as a “political consultant.”

When my Nana- father’s mother was in her advanced age, she got Meals on Wheels. The food honestly was blah but she did look forward to the opportunity to talk to the volunteer. Nana was lucky in that she had her kids, grandkids, and great grandkids nearby her but a lot of old people don’t have that. Cutting Meals on Wheels, PBS, school lunches, etc is just so unnecessary. The GOP are the people who tell you have a spending problem because you buy yourself groceries but tell you that you need to buy more cigarettes and booze.

Hey, remember how Ryan was touting the 10% reduction in average premiums under the AHCA? Turns out that didn’t mean the average guy would pay 10% less. The average guy will be paying 13% MORE than under the ACA. For many, A LOT MORE, so they’ll drop out, unable to afford the premiums.

The lower average premium? That’s because the only ones left will be the ones with the lowest premiums. But for EACH OF them, it’ll be higher.

Most of the never-Trumpers have already or will soon return to their safe spaces in the GOP cesspit of Satan.

The completely nonpartisan fact that Trump is deeply compromised, totally corrupt and thoroughly incompetent means nothing to GOPers compared to the chance he offers to starve the poor, cut taxes for the rich, have pointless wars, and piss off liberals.

There is no difference between the likes of Erick Erickson and DF.

I got my then 10 year old nephew a model car of a ‘67 Toyota 2000GT I purchased from the Toyota Museum in Nagoya as a birthday gift for him.

The Chinese “carrier killer” ballistic missiles depend on several layers of sensors and midcourse correction…all of which are vulnerable to spoofing and other measures even before you have to worry about trying to engage the terminal warhead. I do not think the system is really as impressive as it has been been built up to be (remember how scared the Soviets were of Star Wars…only to find out later it was bullshit?)

No carrier sails without lots of Aegis warship coverage, and I believe the current block (IIA) of Standard Missile-3 is specifically tasked with shooting down IRBM’s.

With Trump everyone is getting a lesson. And it is a lesson that isn’t going to be learned in the nearly two months of Trump.

It is going to take time for the people either to hear about it or maybe longer to have this shit go away before they go “Hey what happened to Meals on Wheels, they used to help grandma?” Or, “what happened to the National Parks, they used to be so clean?”

But the establishment RINOs have gotten a taste of that Obamacare dough, which they are now reluctant to release control of.

I think Trump is right. We should let Obamacare run its course, let it come crashing down and give the Democrats the opportunity to feel the full weight of the megadisaster they created. Then Trump can writre it any way he wants.

Obamacare is a proven failure & will implode on it’s own if no one “agrees” with the “replacement plan”! Maybe that’s exactly what SHOULD happen! In that scenario however, the bleeding heart liberal Democrats will blame President Trump! What the Dems fail or REFUSE to realize, is that “Obamacare” was created by the Dems! They own it! We cannot afford to become a “Welfare Country”, it’s bad enough that California has become a “Welfare STATE”! We can no longer AFFORD to be NANNIES for America!

Exactly! Erick Erickson and I live in the same Middle GA city. He was once a member of our city council, and when he announced he wouldn’t be running for re-election, even GOPers here celebrated. Erickson helped build the environment in America in which someone like Trump could, and was, elected president, so there’s no reason he should now be criticizing anything Trump & Co. does/says. He’s still a RW shill who has never seen a cut to a social program that he would reject which would put more money into his bank account.

More seriously, though, I’ve observed just from, for example, following other drivers down a twisty, but not especially treacherous road, that there are lots of drivers who don’t really like driving. They do it, to get from home to work and back, or maybe on a vacation, but they don’t enjoy it. Me? I enjoy it. I’ll go out for a drive for fun, go bombing down that same twisty road grinning, instead of creeping along at a snail’s pace and STILL braking for every slight bend. And for some folks who like driving, a small, responsive car that feels more like something you put on than something you climb into is fun.

MGs and such are really labors of love, because you end up putting so much of your labor into them that you really feel connected. I owned a 14-year-old, 1966 MGB for a little over 3 years, and I can tell you all kinds of stories and details about it. I owned my Subaru Outback for 11 years, and I can barely remember it.

This.

Cruise missiles were the game changer…until they weren’t. The Chinese ballistic missile system has problems…one in that it is trying to hit a fast moving target and relying on (possibly wrong or compromised)data input at launch to get it into a reasonable Circular Error Probability to allow it to engage at a mach 6 terminal velocity and at a near vertical angle to target. It will have time to make maybe 1 or 2 high gee maneuvers (if even possible) to try and get a usable intercept geometry. You can forget about trying to avoid incoming fire (which even mach 3 sea skimmer missiles are able to do) because the intercept geometry is sooooo fucking insanely hard and the target is moving in ways that will not help you at all (and again…in the case of sea skimmer missiles, the ship speed and and direction of travel really don’t matter so much since they can follow you wherever…but they sure as hell do when working with ballistic missiles)

I say this because I’m a Christian, and I have closely observed their words and actions, and they don’t align with the values JC had.

More fundamentally, there are a shitload of elected Republican officials in Congress and at the state level. Clinton getting 3 million more votes in a presidential election can’t be used to distract the Democrats from addressing these problems.

Here’s the other thing - earlier, I spoke of a disillusioned acquaintance of mine who puts a fair bit of blame for the present situation on Obama and the Democrats (i.e. “why didn’t they fight harder?”) Got into another conversation with said acquaintance today where he elaborated as such:

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

When I asked for a more specific example of what they could do differently, he said:

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

So…could that kind of behavior make a difference? We know the beltway media would crap all over it, but would voters see it and finally feel more positively toward the Dems, instead of perceiving them as an imperfect alternative at best, GOP enablers at worst?

Yep, it’s gotten that bad that another of the Five Eyes has to issue its own statement:
Reuters: British security official denies UK spy agency eavesdropped on Trump

A UK spy agency did not eavesdrop on Donald Trump during and after last year’s U.S. presidential election, a British security official said on Tuesday, denying an allegation by a U.S. television analyst.

The official, who is familiar with British government policy and security operations, told Reuters that the charge made on Tuesday by Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano, was “totally untrue and quite frankly absurd.”

Trump, who became president in January, tweeted earlier this month that his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama, wiretapped him during the late stages of the 2016 campaign. The Republican president offered no evidence for the allegation, which an Obama spokesman said was “simply false.”

Senior Obama administration officials, including former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, have also denied any such wiretapping occurred.

On Monday, the U.S. Justice Department told the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee that it needed more time to respond to a demand for copies of any documents that might show Obama ordered eavesdropping on Trump.

On the “Fox & Friends” program, Napolitano, a political commentator and former New Jersey judge, said that rather than ordering U.S. agencies to spy on Trump, Obama obtained transcripts of Trump’s conversations from Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ, the equivalent of the U.S. National Security Agency, which monitors overseas electronic communications.

“Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command - he didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI and he didn’t use the Department of Justice,” Napolitano said, adding that the former president “used GCHQ.”

GCHQ has a close relationship with the NSA, as well as with the eavesdropping agencies of Australia, Canada and New Zealand in a consortium called “Five Eyes.”The British official said that under British law, GCHQ “can only gather intelligence for national security purposes” and noted that the U.S. election “clearly doesn’t meet that criteria.”

Well, that sorta scotched that line of attack now, eh?….

One problem that’s bleeding obvious in retrospect is that Republicans are in partial or total control of lots of blue states at the state level. Expecting those states to stay blue in presidential elections when their voters are voting R at the state level is beyond foolish.

And, when she or someone she loves becomes ill as a result of the polluted air and water, if TrumpCare passes, she’ll set up a gofundme account to cover the healthcare costs, and she’ll likely call it “winning.”

I just do not get the heartlessness of so many of our fellow Americans. TBH, I don’t really feel that fuck her way but I really am at wits end with people like this.

re: #99 EPR-radar

I’ve never understood why people put up with car brands that are notorious for maintenance issues. I mainly want three things in a car: 1) reliability, 2) a decent amount of engine power for those exciting freeway moments of the CA lifestyle, and 3) longevity.

In other words, you want a Smart car. /s It did all those things for me (especially the California freeway moments) when we went to California.

re: #198 HappyWarrior

What kind of dipshit points a gun at someone. Then again, I bet Hannity isn’t nearly as good with guns as he claims to be and he just likes to play with them to portray himself as a macho man when he’s actually a fucking coward.

We already know he is a coward - remember, he has yet to allow himself to be waterboarded like he said he would.
