Hateful and crazy is based on the little bit I see and hear, and when I do, he appears hateful and crazy so I don't watch him anymore. Has nothing to do with agreeing with my opinions.

I meant your opinion on what's hateful and crazy wink

I feel you though, I mostly avoid politics, but this cycle has been so interesting.. It certainly seems like we are witnessing active 'infighting" between branches of the federal government, political parties, the current media sets and intelligence agencies...

there will be movies made about this time, not sure what format they will follow... (post apocalyptic? Hero's journey? Horror/thriller? Comedy?)

Trump said his plan was to drain the swamp in DC. Maybe he's planning on draining it in Florida too, making room for more real estate development. I guess clean water is overrated. Alana you may have to move backbig grin Well at least some of the states have their own rules.

When One President Smears Another

"Just contemplate the recklessness — the sheer indifference to truth and the moral authority of the American presidency — revealed here: one president baselessly charging criminality by another, all in a childish Twitter rampage."

"The background for Mr. Trump’s outburst is, of course, the F.B.I.’s investigation of his inner circle’s contacts with Russian intelligence. It would be highly unusual for a president to be privy to details of a law enforcement investigation targeting his associates, let alone targeting him. If the inquiry is primarily a counterespionage investigation, however, he might properly have been briefed on it. Not much is known about this inquiry. The mere fact that a new administration is being investigated for potentially colluding with Moscow is uncharted territory."

"As for those senior officials of this administration who have integrity: It is past time for them to begin asking themselves if they can continue lending their names and exposing their reputations to a president with so little regard for democratic institutions, and for the truth."

Without proper federal funding, which is being cut, the majority of state's won't be able to keep water clean especially since rules regarding disposal of mining waste in our waters have just gone out the door due to trump.
Clean air as well is on the chopping block. Our environment and it's protections are all under attack under this DEPLORABLE administration and its LIAR IN CHIEF. He hasn't drained the swamp. He's filled it with monsters.

If I have to move back, at least, I have the option.
Given what I'm seeing happen to our VI, I'm glad I made the move when I did. Only time will tell! big grin

Trumplethinskin is (himself, his swamp monsters and all of the ethically challenged republicans) on they've this road that has no guard rails, no center or side lines, no lights, rules or regulations, no TRUTH, and that he's dug the deep potholes in, himsef, while incessantly whining, attacking and blaming others (anyone and everyone) to assuage his pathetic narcissistic intellectually, ethically, morally challenged, fascist leaning, Russia/Putin loving, miscreant dictator, wannabe ego.

The man is inept, intellectually, mentally unstable, unfit and eminently unqualified.

He is unstable, physiologically, intellectually, morally, ethically challenged, UNFIT to be a president. PERIOD!
The question is:

WHY ARE THE REPUBLICANS NOT WILLING TO GET TO THE TRUTH ABOUT RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE AND TRUMP'S, HIS ADVISORS, HIS FAMILY'S INVOLVEMENT AND CONTACTS OBVIOUSLY IN CONFLICT WITH THE EMOLLIENTS CLAUSE AND HIS LACK OF TRANSPARENCY WITH NOT THE RELEASE OF TAX RETURNS?

I'd like to know what the problem is with have having:
Environmental Protections
Clean water, land and air
Protecting Wildlife and Animal Species
Protecting our lands and national parks
Protecting the weakest and enslaved
Protecting our veterans who have served, honorably and deserve help, medical services as well as do their families

Protecting us from an unstable, UNFIT, incapable, intellectually, morally, ethically challenged fascist who just happens to be a pathological LIAR seems important these days.

Trump says he wants clean water and air, he just doesn't want anyone to have to pay for it or have any regulations to enforce it. Maybe he has a magic lamp to rub. Well to be fair, he only wants to cut 20% of the EPA staff and 25% of their budget. So maybe our air and water will still be 80% clean.

And the VI Nice commercial just played on TVhappy

Or maybe they will do less damage than they did in Colorado in 2015. Damage which the Obama administration refused to pay for. The EPA claimed sovereign immunity.

Less regulation is a welcome relief.

“The first thing I’m going to do is tell you that if I’m elected president, I’m accepting no salary, okay?” Trump said. “I’m not gonna take the salary. I’m not taking it,” he said.

[www.foxnews.com]

So by taking the salary and giving it away now he's not only costing the tax payers the $400,000 presidents are supposed to get but he'll cost us another $100K+ in tax deductions on top of it.

Others including Michael Bloomberg, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Mitt Romney accepted $1 salaries during their time in office.
