Congratulations to Betsy DeVos confirmed as Secretary of Education. Two Republican Senators voted against her. Vice President Pence cast the tie breaking vote for her. If the Democrats with all their political grandstanding would have confirmed Jeff Sessions two weeks ago he would not have been eligible to vote for her conformation. So the Democrats would have effectively blocked her, but they are completely clouded by their stupidity. The Republicans are united on the rest of the cabinet so they can't stop anything. big grin

so personal privacy is meaningless to you?

From your link:

and maintaining the privacy rights of individuals, APHIS is implementing actions to remove documents it posts on APHIS’ website involving the Horse Protection Act (HPA) and the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) that contain personal information covered by the Privacy and Freedom of Information Acts or guidance from the U.S. Department of Justice regarding them

Did you even read it or...?

More entertainment, thanks A!

“What is going on in this country is giving me chills. Trump is not like Hitler. Just because a leader wants order doesn’t mean they’re like a dictator. What reminds me more of Hitler than anything else isn’t Trump, it’s the destruction of freedom of speech on the college campuses — the agendas fueled by the professors.”
Then she dropped a bombshell,
“That’s how Hitler started, he pulled in the youth to miseducate them, to brainwash them, it’s happening today.”

Seems to me Trump has a lot in common with Hitler. Propaganda and alternative truths, denial of facts. Trump is doing his own miseducating. The narcissism. Everything is correct if it agrees with Trump's message, otherwise it's all wrong, no matter how trivial. Media, judges, congress. He can't even help but bash Nordstrom for "unfairly" dropping his daughter's product line.

I don't think Trump is a parallel at all too Hitler. I think he is a business man that sees this country has gone down the wrong path in many areas and truly wants to help turn things around. I agree he isn't refined like an experienced politician that tries to make everyone happy with every decision. This is why we are in mess we are in. Hard choices have to be made. Here in the VI as well. Also it doesn't help that the losers are not going to unite with the winners for the good of our country. So they will pick apart and misrepresent everything he says or does. However the red states will be heard loud and clear in the midterm elections.

I really hope Elizabeth Warren is the Democrats next choice for President.

Your opinion, definitely not "fact".

This seems like desperate attempt to marginalize ideas with out debate...

Strong men are super rare these days, I agree.. but I think you need to look up narcissism... I could see "hard headed"..


YOu sound so extreme in your views... one might even draw a parallel to a fascist..

Look, at this point, I'd be encouraged if the man could/would read!! This morning's tweets show that this is not the case.


"The failing @nytimes does major FAKE NEWS China story saying "Mr.Xi has not spoken to Mr. Trump since Nov.14." We spoke at length yesterday!"

(the NYT article was ABOUT the 2/9 phone call. The NYT was misquoted because trump thinks the words "has" and "had" are interchangeable. "Even a bad high-schooler . .. " )


"LAWFARE: "Remarkably, in the entire opinion, the panel did not bother even to cite this (the) statute." A disgraceful decision!"
(Lawfare did point this out. But noted that they (A Brookings backed blog) thought last night's decision was correct)

This would be funny if he was still doing reality shows. But anyone at this stage of the game who doesn't realize that trump is out of his league is not paying attention.

I use Twitter daily. Have for years. But given the ludicrous implication that trump is capable of having complex thoughts, I'll take your remark as hilariously funny sarcasm.

LOL! So it turns out trump never even looked at the short blog about the court decision. He heard it on Morning Joe!

I don't throw tantrums. Easy D does, though, on an almost daily basis. I'll be glad when HIS terrible twos are over.

My hope for DeVos is that she dismantle the Department of Education and return education to the states.
My hope for Trump is that he dismantle much of big government. Power should be returned to the states. 50 social experiments going on simultaneously is better than one experiment, since they obviously have no clue what they are doing.

Couldn't agree more..

10th amendment folks,, violated every hour of every day by the federal government and allowed to continue through the complacently bribed State governments.

Federal funds are used as bribe money for programs... it's a sick system and it needs to go.

(for example, Trump used federal funds as a threat against Berkeley after the recent riots.... coercion from on high).

Doesn't seem to be a challenge for him, well maybe the "complex" part but not the 144 chars. From what I've seen (I don't do the twitter thing) what he can't fit in the first 144 chars he just puts in the next 144 chars.....

I'm going to stop posting here as the majority of y'all think trumplethinskin is the cat's meow while I believe that he, his cabinet and this republican administration is a clear and present threat to America and Americans.
Maybe reality vs "alternative facts" will kick in.
Maybe you'll get sick of the facts that he's disbanding and a danger to protections put in place to help our clean air, waters, environment, civil rights to name, just a few.

140. You can thread them together, but he still hasn't learned how to do that. It usually takes 10 to 20 minutes for him to think up the next tweet. So you can never tell if he's finished if you happen to catch him mid-rant.

Good news but what's it have to so with Trump? Looks like it's all state run operations. How many arrests were made in the previous month?
