Perhaps something a little more accessible for the plebians than that is a little less hypocritical for Sulleys communist wonderland?

I'm getting the feeling that this budget is going down in flames. Way too many things in it that will hurt the states and some of these R congressmen fear the backlash

CNN had a Rep Congressman from NY on earlier today and played a testimonial from an elderly woman who didn't know how she'd eat if Meals on Wheels were gone. It was actually pretty heart wrenching. He responded that he would not let one dollar be taken from the program.

I know it could all be lip service, but I have to believe the town halls, the protests and these real testimonials make a difference. Hey GOP, actual governing is hard.

I would love nothing more than a 70 year old Donald Trump forced to need meals on wheels to live.

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_ ... group.html

No matter how low your opinion of Donald Trump and his cronies, somehow they still manage to surprise you. It’s been evident for a while now that Sebastian Gorka, Trump’s top counterterrorism adviser, has at least flirted with fascism. One clue was when Gorka, who was born in London to Hungarian parents, dressed up for one of Trump’s inaugural balls in a black braided jacket popular with the Hungarian far right, pinned with a medal associated with Hungarian Nazi collaborators. Then in February, Jewish newspaper the Forward found that from 2002–2007, when Gorka was active in politics in Hungary, he worked closely with anti-Semitic politicians and wrote for openly anti-Semitic newspapers.

Even knowing all that, however, Thursday’s Forward scoop is startling. Reporters Lili Bayer and Larry Cohler-Esses found strong evidence that Gorka swore a lifetime oath to a far-right Hungarian group, the Vitézi Rend. The State Department classifies the Vitézi Rend as having been “under the direction of the Nazi Government of Germany” during World War II; as such, members are “presumed to be inadmissible” to America under the Immigration and Nationality Act and must disclose their membership on immigration applications. (The organization was banned in Hungary following World War II but reconstituted after the fall of communism.)

Two leaders of the Vitézi Rend told Forward that Gorka is a full member. Further, members of the group, who undergo “a solemn initiation rite,” adopt a lowercase “v.” as a middle initial. There are multiple records of Gorka spelling his name “Sebastian L. v. Gorka,” including on his 2008 doctoral dissertation and in testimony before the House Armed Services Committee in 2011. Gorka didn’t respond to the Forward’s requests for comment, and when a reporter from Buzzfeed contacted him, he stonewalled, saying, “Send a request to White House press.”

it's rather galling that the country went from it's first (half-)black president to an administration packed with racist neo-nazis.

Comment from Sheriff Clarke in response to Barrett’s recent remarks about the sheriff:
“The last time Tom Barrett showed up at a crime scene he got his ass kicked by a drunk, tire-iron-wielding man who beat him within inches of his life. The milquetoast mayor trying to play cop foolishly thought he could simply talk the man who beat him senseless into backing down. Bet he won't try that again!


no big deal, just an actual sheriff making fun of a mayor who got badly beaten with a pipe while responding to pleas for help.

how is this an actual horsefeathering sheriff?

It's not a healthcare bill. It's a budget bill. If it was a healthcare bill it could be filibustered

Isn't this describing what we already have in every large metropolitan area? Also, hard pass on the plutocracy.

CNN Headline: "Trump to Merkel: We Were Both Wiretapped"
