Your recall sucks big time, just like you do.
AMEN Jared, there is nothing wrong with having this Pope address Congress, as it has been done before. If he argues for something that a group of citizens agree is against our country's best interests, then those people have a right to voice their objections. However, if he argues against the abuse of civil rights, he is doing what the majority feels is right.
Why can't, or isn't an indicted governor ousted from office? If enough evidence to indict, office holder should be forced to resign immediately.
Who, you ask. Everyone should know that answer because it is self-evident: TRUMP and the WEALTHY.
I was watching the Donald speak in Texas tonight, and noticed that all he says is something negative about his opponents, his predecessors, or the other party. He never mentions a program or an idea that he might offer for improving some less-than-ideal situation here in America. I did hear him say that he WOULD be presenting some terrific new tax program later on, but who can guess when that might be? He added that one of the first things he would do about U.S. companies moving some or all of their operations overseas, is that he would be bringing TRILLIONS of dollars that left, back home where they belong. How would he suggest this be done? Obviously he gave no specifics. I think his method is to bring huge crowds together, incite them with some far-out logic that no one can follow, and then just leave them hanging on for more.

Whatever the role guns play in gun violence it will be a long time and probably never before guns are removed from the streets. The problem is that most people that support gun control won't support what it will take to remove guns. Removing guns will require a police presence that people have already said they don't want or will accept. But if the police presence was immediately funded and put into effect all violence and violent crimes would diminish. There are already strong laws designed to keep guns away from potential offenders but there is no stomach to fund execution of those laws. Crime prevention requires police presence. We should pay our cops more and hire many more of them. People have and live with burglar alarms in their house. The best peace of mind I have comes from my security system. Why not extend that system with more cops. The wealthy have gated communities with the gates attended by guards. Why can't the poor have the same protection. start with increased police protection and I mean significant protection. Any group or gathering should have protection available. Anecdotally I see violence escalating everywhere . There will be many many many more tragedies before any type of gun control begins to have even a very slight effect on gun violence.
Chet, you make some very valid points here, but as I read Dutch write in another post, "there are always exceptions." Indeed I believe this to be true, and I see one more "exception" that should be noted. More cops will very likely also mean more BAD cops, as there is undeniably some small percentage of those who are. Just look at that percentage in the current level of policing. Whatever this small percentage is, it is enough to rear its ugly head quite often, and NEVER fails to make the news. I'm just saying that this variable would have to be considered in the hiring of more cops.

They will say something that concerned him but never follow up like they are not supposed to talk about him. Even the Democratic pundants gloss over him like he doesn't really matter. I feel like Bernie Sanders is the last lifeline that will be thrown to us and if we don't take it then ......you.
Chet, the issue I see here is that, like Bernie himself says, he relies ONLY on the "small" (
Great post and information Wyt, just too bad that Hillary never brought up the issue. I think if she had, all this nonsense would have been avoided, and the polls would be in her favor.
What is happening right now will have an huge effect on jobs; MSMBC had a good program about what Trump wants. He says we have to compete with low labor countries in the world, so we have to keep our labor cost lower than them to attract business here. So the billionaires can pocket more. Wow, I'm amazed that anyone still listens to that dumb ass. Sure, put us back into the slave time. Unbelievable. In the meantime his running buddy Jebb held a speech for a bunch of veterans and promised just like Trump to "rebuilt" and increase defense spending as well undo all Obama did to curb this. He copied Trump on this; like the statement: "If you can't fight them, join them" What an horrible weakling baby face..
Let's be honest, I'm scared as hell if any of these nutheads get elected. They are not even suited for first grade toddler class. The worst part of it is that I don't hear anything at all from the Democratic side to forcefully, with a lot of common sense, counter act these lunatics. Especially Hillary does not make any dent with her low intensity politicians voice. Sorry to say, we need an Bernie type; but a bit younger with as much a big mouth as Trump who can counteract all this B.S. in a big way.
However may be the policy to "keep quiet" could work as well, till they fall on their flat faces. But kind of dangerous, because most Americans are very dumb and love clown shows!!!
Great post Dutch, Trump wants wages to remain low or even go lower, just to fatten the pickets of the wealthy. That's the same reason why some companies leave our borders--to rely and wallow in the HUGE profits that are totally based on this cheap labor. I sure wish he had to try and eek out a living on minimum wage or lower.
