    The GOP will be punished in 2020 for their slavish devotion to all things Trump.

    By 2024, there will be three parties in America: the Progressives, the Democrats, and the Fascists. By 2028 there will two parties in America: the Progressives and the Democrats. The fascists will be living in isolated wilderness outposts or assisted living facilities. The reason for this is that every single day, if you count the left leaning and right leaning deaths among geezers and the left leaning and right leaning eighteenth birthdays, the left has a net gain of 2000 new voters – every single day.

    The Millennials may never vote in great numbers, but Gen Z turnout will be astounding.

    Elizabeth Warren ideas? Aha, so Bernie Sanders never run in 2016 and shifted the Party Conversation and he also is not on of the 3 Contenders for the Nomination right now. The more the MSM supports Warren, the more i get suspicious.

    The democrats need to realize that their position on gun control is a burden that is not worth bearing . The frenzy created by 1 or 2 percent of the gun violence ( mass shootings are a small percentage of gun crime ) is political theater . Mental health is a much greater concern ( suicide is the majority of gun caused death ) I would gladly exchange universal backround check for access to the check system , why do you want to tax me ( $35.00 backround fee to the gun dealer is a tax ) for your false sense of security . A little more common sense , a little less political theater please .

    If you are not a fan of Democrats, that's OK, but it is NOT a valid excuse or OK to proactively enable a POTUS and party that is systematically undermining our democracy at every turn.

    At a recent meeting of the promotional staff of a print magazine,
    it was noticed not to have any meaningful representation on the many panels on
    the Sunday morning chat shows. It was suggested a woman would be nice, which raised
    the question, whom already on staff is attractive enough to represent the publication?
    and if one cannot be found, whom can be faked-up with blond hair dye and
    make-up that would be able to pass that attractive test in this age of
    appearance journalism? As this problem is being pondered, I’ll get back to you
    with how this publication solved their Sunday morning television dilemma,
    meanwhile, please enjoy all those pretty young faces that have already been
    approved for viewing…even on some of those old weather-beaten and worn-out
    ladies of media…
