    US Politics: In Through the Out Door

    Trump's taxes won't do shit, even if all they amount to is an old, greasy napkin with the words "I never paid no taxes, also I totally colluded with Russia! Suck it America!" written in crayon. His base won't care, Republican lawmakers won't care, and most non-insane conservatives will probably find a way to rationalize it away. It'll take something truly calamitous to peel away much of his support, like a faltering economy, and even then I wouldn't be so sure.

    US Politics: In Through the Out Door

    So... even though the Dems have taken the House and have flipped a number of gubernatorial races and have taken some state legislators, the Republicans really didn't do that bad overall. They still hold the Senate, even more so than before, and pretty much can do whatever they want there. So, this doesn't seem like much of a repudiation of Trump, does it? I see the Republicans doubling down on Trumpism and their toxic behavior even more than before. Sooo... where does that leave the Democrats? Where do they go from here and what do they take away from this? If this is the absolute best they can do against a Presidential administration that is both fairly unpopular and has been wracked by scandal after scandal and chaotic incompetence, then... now what?

    I might almost consider it a victory, just to see Cruz go the fuck away. An utterly horrible, pyrrhic victory, but I'll take what I can get at this point.

    At what point does unable to comply become outright refusal?

    But what if those pregnant women have smallpox or Ebola or are carrying nascent jihadis in their wombs? You need to give Trump more credit here, he's a connoisseur of fearmongering and there's nothing that his base won't get apoplectic over. Voted this morning on the way to work. Really was not that busy but my polling place tends to be much busier near the end of the day so I'm not sure that it means anything.

    That's a good idea, which means the Democrats won't be doing it. [/lokisnow]

    And the values of Bumfuck, Nowhere* are not the values of everywhere else. It's a two way street you know. * Speaking as someone who lives in Bumfuck, Nowhere.

    US Politics: Judge Dread

    Indeed. Fuck Flake. Attempted rape is okay, but tarriffs? My god, Trump is simply unworthy of the presidency! Didn't he tweet several months ago that he would not support any Trump SCOTUS nominee as long as he was under investigation?
  13. I saw AF back in July and they were truly outstanding. Probably one of the best live shows I've ever seen and while they did not play Funeral in its entirety, they played just a good mix of songs from all of their albums. Hell, even the songs I didn't like from their latest were pretty damn good live. I would definitely consider seeing them again and I don't think that often. Very highly recommend you see them if you get the opportunity and you're a fan. As for what I'm listening to, the absolute and complete fucking opposite of Arcade Fire.

    U.S. Politics: Next-ennials vs stamps

    If true, I wonder if this is an attempt by the Trump Swamp to bury this story beneath the current Kavanaugh scumfuckery or if they're attempting to shift the news away from Kavanaugh so that they can just go ahead with the confirmation and hope nobody notices.

    I really, really hope that's just a pseudonym for POTUS.
