    When I was a union officer in the coal mines, when there was a crisis and there were many we held meetings at 8 o'clock Sunday morning. That was because that was the best time to have a lot of sober members. I used to consider that a negative for mine workers. Now I think that is probably a metric of normality for all people. Hard to believe that Trump mumbles out incoherently and yet is not run out of the WhiteHouse. And Melania offers activities to ward off boredom for people being locked out of their jobs. People most of which can't come up with 400 dollars let alone exist for months without a pay check. I suppose she'll offer cake decorating ideas next.

    If I didn't know better I would think that you are trying to drive away Bernie supporters with; "My only hope is that Bernie supporters unite with us hated and loathsome moderates".

    Differentiate between Hillary '16 and Biden '20. Biden's moderate posture seems to ignore that millions have no health insurance, cannot afford co pays or deductibles, cannot plan on college.

    Said: "If Trump really believes that then anything is possible."

    As I have said from the beginning: "Trump never wanted to be president". He wanted to think he could win but only entered the race to improve his brand. In the beginning he never entertained the thought that he would win. As he became more outrageous and did every possible thing to lose his support grew. He spent less than half the money that Hillary did, made every possible slur about everything and continued to gain support. Even a logical sane normal person would have to wonder if the divinity was tilting the table towards Trump. So apply the obvious to a narcissistic sociopath and you have a self perceived dictator. Remember when the headlines were "he's gone too far this time" and then again and again and again. Why is nobody yet held in contempt and thrown in jail??? Everybody that can do anything is scared of Trump. As each felonious contempt is ignored Trump is more rigidly secured in power.

    Nothing new just affirmation that repeating a lie creates belief that the lie is true.

    BBC - Future - How liars create the ‘illusion of truth’

    “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth”, is a law of propaganda often attributed to the Nazi Joseph Goebbels.

    that guy in AZ,

    I am totally puzzled by a lack of reaction to indicators by the country in general. Trump has destroyed whatever respect and honor the office of Presidency has/had. The country has been in a downward spiral with the attack against regulations. It has left the working class with a declining income, is destroying education and I say increasing crime and violence. Trump has a gang that he can count on and they seem to revel and enjoy his outlaw actions. The reaction to any movement to restore opportunity and fairness is an appeal to moderation and centrism. I am convinced that Trump bought into the legitimate and caring public with his tax cut. The validation to Trump's wayward ways can be seen in Bill Gates" graduation speech where he said: "Life is not fair, get used to it". liveabout.com/bill-gates-rules-of-life-... What worries me most is that Trump does not need that many new votes to win. With his base support he can raid the rest of the country with "Healthcare for all whether people can pay", lots of good paying jobs will appeal to the rust belt states and others suffering stagnant wages and Unaffordable Health Care and Make America Great Again (He will appeal to being attacked by Democratics and Fake news). It doesn't matter that none of what he says is true because he only has to convince a few disillusioned people that he can carry on. He doesn't need that many key votes to win. The key to beating Trump is not attacking and criticising him. That plays into his hand. Trump still has that misunderstood and denied power of Charisma to carry him through to victory. The way to defeat Trump is to patronize him promising to carry out his promises in a far better and universal manner.

    The only thing that will stop this kind of mass shooting violence is removing all guns. Removing all guns would probably precipitate another kind of violence. Don't be reassured that the number of gun owners has gone down. It is probably a lot more than polling can account for.

    Common sense gun laws have nothing to do with gun violence. Common sense gun laws is just a front for a possible stand that can be achieved. Then the the supporters can take credit for getting "Common sense gun laws". Don't forget Al gore being defeated by the gun issue and don't forget the Bradley effect. The number of people supporting gun laws publicly can be cut greatly by the people that are lying to pollsters. Just like they did when Trump was running. People were ashamed to admit they were supporting Trump so they lied to pollsters. Clinton lost Congress in the mid terms because of his assault weapon ban, says Clinton himself. New laws are needed that will curb violence but they will affect the sensibilities. Pushing for laws that are political victories but don't stop gun violence can push or let a President to call for Marshal Law.

    Money rules the system. A tax code should prevent any one person from subjugating a government to private wishes and whims.
