  1. This is how democracies die

    Every last one of them regardless of party affiliation. My dream is Washington knee-deep in blood.
  2. "Campaign contribution" is synonymous with legal bribery. Grow the f*ck up.
  3. Fact: The number of lobbyists in Washington triple when Republicans are in office. Worthless, treasonous whores.
  4. This is how democracies die

    I would resolve the problem in weeks. I would kill all of these treasonous bastards without hesitation.
  5. You mother f*cking ignorant cons make me sick. You fall for scam after scam. You never learn anything. Ryan and the Koch brothers should be killed. Treasonous swine. Doesn't it even bother you that your grandchildren will be paying for your gullibility? https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/paul-ryan-collected-dollar500000-in-koch-contributions-days-after-house-passed-tax-law/ar-AAuWW6J?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp (Full article at above link) Just days after the House passed its version of the federal tax law slashing corporate tax rates, House Speaker Paul Ryan collected nearly $500,000 in campaign contributions from billionaire energy mogul Charles Koch and his wife, according to a recent campaign donor report. Koch and his brother David spent millions of dollars to get the tax law passed and are spending millions more in a public relations campaign in an attempt to boost support for the law, The Wall Street Journal reported. “It looks like House Speaker Ryan is quickly being rewarded for passing this legislation that overwhelmingly benefits the Kochs and billionaires like them,” Adam Smith, spokesman for campaign finance reform nonprofit Every Voice, told the International Business Times, which first reported the Koch contributions. The Koch brothers, worth an estimated $100 billion together, have become the gorillas of dark money contributions distorting American democracy since the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. FEC lifted campaign contribution restrictions. The brothers are using their massive wealth to push a political agenda that’s the “most hard-line libertarian philosophy” in America, according to Jane Mayer, author of Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right. Ryan has indicated that he won’t run again when his term is up this year, Politico reported, though he hasn’t made an official announcement. If he doesn’t run, his contributions would be redirected.

  6. The rich get richer while your moronic, redneck grandkids get stuck with the bill. Crongrats with that.
  7. When I think of Republicans, I envision a barrel full of monkeys whacking off onto each other. It's disgusting.
  8. Just to clarify the title of the OP. Atheists do not hate something that they KNOW doesn't exist. Understand, you delusional morons?
  9. That idiot Trump is making the country go backwards. He has threatened the use of Executive Orders in his efforts to halt abortion. Well, we have our judges, and we will ignore his stupid ass. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/for-rival-camps-in-abortion-debate-a-weekend-to-mobilize/ar-AAuRMl3?ocid=spartandhp (Full article at above link) Activists on both sides of the abortion debate will be rallying and marching over the next few days in their annual show of force for events that kick off Friday with the March for Life in Washington, the biggest yearly event for opponents of abortion. Organizers say Donald Trump will become the first sitting president to address the gathering, speaking live from the White House Rose Garden. Abortion rights supporters plan a counter-protest Friday at the Supreme Court, followed by other weekend events marking Monday's 45th anniversary of the high court's Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide. Richards, Head of Planned Parenthood, in a news briefing this week, said its allies are eyeing November's elections as a chance to strengthen the abortion-rights cause both in Congress and at the state level. "Any way you spin it, women have become the most potent political force in this country," she said. In Ohio, that's been the case this month: the GOP-controlled Senate already approved a bill that would require the burial or cremation of fetal remains following an abortion. Democratic senators and abortion rights groups say the bill is another of many attempts in Ohio to impede women from seeking legal abortions. Last year, Oregon enacted a law ensuring insurance coverage for a full range of reproductive health services, including abortion, while Illinois restored coverage for abortion for state employees and residents who qualify for Medicaid. Earlier this month, more than 200 legislators from 40 states forced the Reproductive Freedom Leadership Council to promote other reproductive-rights initiatives. In Congress, many Republicans would like to pass tough anti-abortion measures, such as a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. But with the recent win by Democrat Doug Jones, an abortion-rights supporter, in Alabama's U.S. Senate election, the GOP has only a 51-49 edge in the Senate and no realistic chance of passing anti-abortion measures that under Senate rules would require 60 votes. Due to those dynamics in Congress, both camps in the abortion debate expect the Trump administration to take up the slack, issuing executive orders and implementing policies that would potentially limit abortion access. On Thursday, for example, the administration announced new steps to protect health care providers who have religious objections to various types of procedures, including abortion.
  10. Chris Christie got a little too big for his britches. GOP takedown. Payback's a bitch. You'll wait in line now like everyone else, fat ass. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/chris-christie-airport-security_us_5a616877e4b0125fd63558ef?ncid=inblnkushpmg00000009 (Full article at above link) Chris Christie, no longer the governor of New Jersey, was denied access to a special VIP entrance at Newark Liberty International Airport on Thursday. The entry point is typically used by dignitaries and others to bypass the normal Transportation Security Administration checkpoint, and Christie used it himself recently, according to NBC New York. However, his access to the bypass appears to have ended this week along with his two terms as governor of the Garden State. “Port Authority says Christie showed up at Newark Airport today with NJ State PD detail,” a Port Authority spokesman told CBS New York. “They tried to go into the special access area where they have been going for years. A PA cop told him he was no longer allowed to use that access and they escorted him to the regular area.” The station said Christie, obviously upset, cooperated.
  11. This guys has been doing the rounds on the news networks, including Fox News. He is basically saying "F*ck Trump." https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/california-ag-we-will-prosecute-employers-who-violate-sanctuary-laws/ar-AAuSfyV?ocid=spartanntp (Full article at above link) California Attorney General Xavier Becerra warned employers Thursday of legal repercussions if they assist federal immigration officials in an impending crackdown in the sanctuary state. Under a new state law – the Immigration Worker Protection Act – employers and businesses could face fines of up to $10,000 if they provide employee information to U.S. Immigration Customs, Becerra said. If employers “start giving up information about their employees or access to their employees in ways that contradict our new California laws, they subject themselves to actions by my office. We will prosecute those who violate the law,” he said at a news conference. The law prevents workers of any immigration status from being detained at workplaces. Among other stipulations, federal officials must obtain a warrant before searching a worksite and employers are required to notify their workers before a federal audit of employee records. Becerra said the Department of Justice and the Labor Commission’s office – which hold exclusive authority over enforcement – will give “guidance” to public and private employers on their responsibilities under the new law. The warning comes amid rumors of mass sweeps that will target illegal immigrants in Northern California. Under California’s sanctuary laws, local police are restricted from cooperating with federal immigration authorities. Upon hearing the rumors, local jurisdictions in Northern California said they hadn’t been notified by federal officials of any impending raids. ICE’s acting director, Thomas Homan told Fox News earlier this month, “If the politicians in California don’t want to protect their communities, then ICE will.”
  12. You lack a faith in humanity. Smart call. The bulk of humanity didn't learn sh*t from the first Enlightenment. It's a shame that P.T. Barnum didn't write a history of human civilization. It would have been a hoot. He probably figured most people wouldn't read it. It's more lucrative to get a carnival barker to get people into the freak show.
