Trump's legislative agenda

which is what exactly? Learn how to read? Join the Russian Federation?? Cut all EPA funding and watch the USA burn?

5 ( +8 / -3 )

The Republican primary in Arizona is filled with some truly vile beings.

So many choices for Floridians and Arizonians.  Decisions, decisions. Who to pick? Racists, old racist garbage, crazy racists or boot licking racists.  

What a conundrum.

The Republican primary in Arizona is filled with some truly vile beings.

And the Arizona Democrats....are there any by the way?

Yes, radical socialism/fascism vs capitalism/democracy

Decisions, decisions. Who to pick? Racists, old racist garbage, crazy racists or boot licking racists.  

That's why the Democrats really don't stand a chance

I don’t think Gillum was the best choice for Democrats, but even he should win against an evil Trump poodle.

As a proud NRA member, I would vote for the Republican.

@kawabe. As a proud NRA member, I would vote for the Republican.

Given how much the Russians have contributed in advertising fees to the NRA and other rightist organizations, plus the 'meddling' they've done to help Trump and other Republicans, do you agree with the slogan on these men's shirts, that you'd rather be Republican than Democrat?

Correction above post:  that you'd rather be RUSSIAN than Democrat?

Rather be anything than Democrat.

Yep those Trump backed candidates just can’t win, or so I heard.

There is No way Gillum will beat DeSantis. Mickey Mouse would have a better chance. There is No chance of Florida embracing a far left socialist especially with the large Cuban community.

Lots of us!

But our chances grew slim when the GOP chose an establishmet Republican. We were hoping those Trump nut jobs Arpaio and Ward would win, but they got kicked to the curb.

And at least your racist boy Arpaio is buried and done in the state. So not all bad news.

Ok, some transplanted from the other parts from the West Coast.

Thank God.

Was that supposed to make me feel bad? Well, but it’s better than the racist socialist Democrat winning, so I’m stoked.

For national elections, I'm considering voting dem as a way to stop Trump's stupidity, perhaps get some impeachment happening.

Ah, so you're happy that both the socialist Democrat and Arpaio lost to an establishment Republican.

As much as I am a fan of the good sheriff, I’m ok with his loss. Better he loses and the socialist loss, in that case, I’ll take a Republican, at this point even an establishment one. I can hold my nose.

And then what? The Senate won’t convict him, so what then?

Sounds like you know politics in Arizona quite well

Arpaio is proof that too much power centralized is a bad idea. Racial profiling, not respecting medical needs of prisoners, not providing normal female products for female prisoners and ignoring child abuse calls is unacceptable. He did these things systematically.

I liked some of the things he did. Jail shouldn't be comfortable or pleasant. I'm torn on the activist judge rulings about enforcing national immigration law.

Arpaio needed to be gone.

We don't know if the Senate will or will not find Prez guilty until we try. Then this is either over or we get a new, anyone-is-better, Prez. But I don't want him gone until Feb '19, even if Pence is a religious fanatic. Right-wing religious crazies need to be stopped just as much as the far left.

Pretty much.

We don't know if the Senate will or will not find Prez guilty until we try.

Try what? Make a crime when there was none?

Then this is either over or we get a new, anyone-is-better, Prez.

After 2024 we shall see.

But I don't want him gone until Feb '19, even if Pence is a religious fanatic. Right-wing religious crazies need to be stopped just as much as the far left.

As of now, it all probably won’t happen p.

Pretty much.

Cool.

So how did we manage to sneak a socialist Democrat into the Republican primary?

It wasn't the dems. It was life - brain cancer and a LGBT daughter. Got him looking at things differently.

I hope Trump doesn't make it passed 2020. Crimes at his level are determined by politics, not lowly judges.

As of now, it all probably won’t happen p.

You are likely correct. Just because something is difficult, that doesn't mean we shouldn't try, especially when it is the right thing to do.

What makes you think Mr. Gillum is a racist? You seem to tie yourself in knots to explain why white people with a history of courting white supremacists can't possibly be racist, but when someone who is black becomes a prominent political figure, you accuse them of racism with no evidence.

I wonder why.

Sycophant.
