The apology tour the next president is going to have to make is going to be considerable.

And the shit said person will get from the GOP will be MASSIVE.

Of course, because its not like Trump ever did anything egregious that should be apologized for! Those silly liberals and their international diplomacy.

A trial lawyer discusses why focusing on abortion is a losing strategy in the attempt to block Kavanaugh.

(For instance, he's blocked the EPA from being pragmatic because Congress is dragging its heels on updating environmental protection laws.)

EDIT: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-the-deceit-that-was-the-bc-liberals-case-for-power/

Surprise, surprise: the "business experience" "fiscally responsible" centre-right party in my province massively fucked shit up and a bunch of socialists have to fix it.

I wonder if we'll see an article like this if the populist left takes over the Democratic Party and starts digging into mismanagement in the US under the near-complete Republican rule (at both the federal and state levels).

EDIT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=raMR3mqzqqQ

Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner now works for a firm that issues high-interest loans (at payday loan rates) of essentially any amount, and then sues the first time a payment is missed.

Also, Anthony Kennedy's last ruling is one that lets employees freeload on unions completely. There was already a rule in place mandating that unions keep money they use for bargaining with employers separate from money they use for political lobbying, and non-union employees at unionized workplaces had to pay into the former fund (since they saw a direct benefit from the union's work there) but not the latter. Now the Supreme Court, with "swing vote" Anthony Kennedy siding with the wingnuts, has ruled that, in fact, employees don't have to pay anything at all... but unions still have to bargain on their behalf.

Fuck you, Anthony Kennedy, you corporatist dick.

So yeah, Trump is really shitty at making himself look not guilty of collusion.
He's like there's no collusion yet I'm going to stand up here at this podium and kiss Putin's ass meanwhile I just went on a European tour where I shit on all of my allies just like Putin would want me to.

Guys I'm starting to think I'm just paranoid and that Trump didn't collude with Russia.

Ironbite-but everyone else who helped got him elected did.

Rand Paul says he's worried about Kavanaugh. And it looks like he's not alone among Republican senators.
Beware those who hate the rich more than they love the poor.

But Trump just committed Treason today. Putting his faith in Russia and the KGB instead of his own CIA who have been telling him repeatedly that Russia interfered with our election and will continue to do so. If he loves Russia so much maybe he just shouldn't be allowed back in the United States.

Of course congress is not going to do anything about this and this will just be another piece of shit swept under the rug.

The GOP need not worry about Rand Paul. He's a lot of bark and absolutely no bite. If he's the deciding vote (say because the Dems manage to hold their own caucus, even though some Senators, like Jones, are already talking about flipping) he's almost certain to vote to confirm.

Whether or not Trump himself was involved in active collusion, there's still lots of financial ties between the Trumps and Russian oligarchs (who are themselves controlled by Putin). That's enough for Putin to exert undue (read: any) influence on Trump whether or not Trump himself colluded.

As for Russia attempting to hack US voting systems, this is why you need hand-marked paper ballots. (Make them machine-read for faster initial counting, but you need to retain the originals for manual recounts in any races that are even slightly close. Also, make sure any machines used in the tabulation are never connected to the Internet.)

You're just talking crazy now, what about those poor internet providers that won't get any business, or those poor voting machine manufacturing companies who will be restricted on what they can make. What about those poor old people that have to count ballots without getting paid. Won't you think of the corporations?

Sacha Baron Cohen got a bunch of Republicans (elected, formerly elected, or heads of GOP-leaning lobby groups) to say they support giving preschoolers guns. (With the exception of Matt Gaetz, who apparently has a dash of common sense.)

He walked back his comments at the Helsinki press comments.  Claimed he misspoke.  Oh yeah Trump, you sure did.

Ironbite-also seems to have embroiled us in an unknown deal with Russia to deal with security.

Would and Wouldn't are two very important words to make a clear distinction between.
He's so full of shit, and the only reason why he's saying this is because he's surprised most American's hate what he did.

No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!
