walker wants to drug test those collecting unemployment, etc. More from this total A hole. Plus, drug testing is expensive. There is no money to do the right thing, but money for drug testing. WTF!

This is so utterly, breathtakingly sad, but texas elected this moron and he gets to waste congressional time with his absolute idiocy.

The postal service was self sustaining, profitable until 2006 and the gop conceived this "poison pill". The gop wants to privatize everything--everything.

About 200 have taken over the floor. At least, the same outside. Republicans refuse to allow a vote for changes in gun laws/control legislation.

Democrats stage a sit-in. http://usuncut.com/politics/democrats-sit-in-house-gun-control/

OK, first of all, this crap comes from the dick heads (whether they be male or female) who scream and demand small government. You know, the ole' government stay out of my business stuff. And secondly, who's going to pay for this shit. You know, the guys (whether male or female) who scream and demand cut, cut, cut. Thirdly, these guys (whether male or female) do not want to provide anything approaching a barely dignified life for the children who are already here (I'm talking food, shelter, education, and like kind).
How nut job is this? Looks like the religious freaks are on their J-O-B and imposing their "faith" on others. The thing is though, women of all religions or those without a religion get abortions. That's reality.
Get pregnant and don't want an abortion for religious reasons, fine--don't get one, but, leave everyone else alone.

A trump/pence presidency will have the opportunity to make, possibly, as many as 4 supreme court appointments. One might want to consider labor rulings, as well--for starters.

That ole' knucklehead, Ted Cruz, to the rescue. He intends to introduce a bill that will allow business to discriminate against unwed fornicators. Totally, he's got our backs, huh. Nothing like lasering in on top priorities.

http://occupydemocrats.com/2016/12/23/ted-cruz-set-file-bill-allow-businesses-discriminate-unwed-fornicators/

Why are the republicans so hot to end ObamaCare?? Well, here ya go--motive revealed.

Racheal Maddow interviews Bernie Sanders and, then, Chuck Schumer. They discuss how the democrats will be taking on the full frontal aggressive plans of the republicans and the donald. 46 minutes, but well worth watching.

Well, here's a good way to start a war. What are these A-Hole evangelical idiots thinking?

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jan/03/us-embassy-israel-jerusalem-republican-bill

Here it comes.

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-congress-obamacare-idUSKBN14N1MK

So, the first thing the republicans do coming out of the gate is to eliminate the issue of having to contend with ethics.

The republicans tried, behind closed doors--in secret, to eliminate the ethics committee that is in place to try and keep these fuckers honest--no small challenge, but an outraged public was all over this one like white on rice. The activism worked. We, as Americans, must not relent. Get the phone numbers of your elected representatives, both the house, the senate, the White House, and their emails and start to Take Control. Shame Them and let them know you are watching and that they work for you. Let them know you can vote them out.

Start Here. Paul Ryan's office number. Take Action.

A serious guide assembled by congressional staffers (who know how it works) and apparently downloaded tens of thousands of times. Would seem a #fucktrump movement is afoot;

Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda
Quote:
Donald Trump is the biggest popular vote loser in history to ever to call himself President-Elect. In spite of the fact that he has no mandate, he will attempt to use his congressional majority to reshape America in his own racist, authoritarian, and corrupt
image. If progressives are going to stop this, we must stand indivisibly opposed to Trump and the members of Congress who would do his bidding. Together, we have the power to resist - and we have the power to win.

If it looks like a duck.......

Lieutenant governor, Shit-For-Brains, is totally on his J-O-B. Of course, he's a evangelical nut job--one thing Texas has in excess. Seriously!! I'm sure he's one of those small government dick heads. WTF!!! Maybe, they'll get lucky and lose more money than North Carolina did. We can only hope.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/texas-lieutenant-governor-introduces-anti-lgbtq-bathroom-bill_us_586eb57de4b099cdb0fc4cc0

Extortion. Yep, that'll work. Let's not take care of what needs to be done here, use federal government time to concern ourselves with the capitol of Israel. Plus, it might be a 2fer. Maybe, we could start a war out of this, as well. rubio and cruz! They're pathetic.
Oh, by the way, they're both evangelical christians, too.
