Snapshots of Your DEMOCRATIC Party, 21st Century Style

"Democrats go for the jugular! (their own)"

David Brooks delivers THE after-action report on the recent governmental shutdown. Some of the finest punditry you will ever read. Democrats are truly skewered. Alas, they deserve to be.

I love this bit:

Quote:
Third, Democrats devised a brilliant Tao Te Ching messaging strategy. The ancient Chinese master informs us, “Being and not being create each other. … Before and after follow each other.” In this way, he teaches the paradoxical infinity of ultimate truth.

The Democrats captured this same paradoxical profundity with their superb messaging over the weekend: We bravely shut down the government to save the Dreamers even though Donald Trump is responsible for shutting down the government.

The ancient Chinese master bows in respect.

Over the weekend Schumer was under "house arrest".

Nailer, you often refer to American Fascism. I still do not get a feel to what you are alluding.

Could you kindly expand.

I know I shouldn't be saying this, but I told y'all so.
Taking up DACA, which anyway one looks at is law breaking, is not a noble cause. YMMV.
One can be sympathetic to these children, but not make them 'cause celebre' and sshut down the government. Tail wagging the dog.
The tax cuts and lack of an operating budget would have been much better issues.

Not the battle I would have chosen at this time.
The "wall" from the budgeting aspect otoh, infrastructure vs this low priority /low return costly grandstanding boondoggle? Yes, definitely!

Actually the consensus is that the tax cuts may help Trump.

I cannot itemize any more since I am near to the end of my mortgage.

The 22k tax deduction will help me but not the nation. Many will see a short term benefit from the tax plan and Trump may ride the wave.


Trump wants to cut legal immigration by 50 percent because he he doesn't like black and brown people so he is about to trap the Democrats into a corner since he wants to gut legal immigration in return for a DACA "victory".

The Dems should not shut down the government and wait until November.
This DACA crisis can be solved by Trump himself. We shouldn't let this jerk institute a nativist immigration policy using the guise of his own self-created DACA crisis.

The SOTU gave us the new 21st Century face of the Dem party. It looks like this.

Should be the face of any decent person reacting to Trump. He’s as evil as Hitler.

She has a hell of a nerve not prostrating herself before a narcissistic, misogynistic racist and compulsive liar as you repeatedly do. The horror!
