The thing about midterms is it's not about the President. It's not about who likes Trump--it's about the legislative branch. If they continue along the course they're going, there will be a lot of people not happy with them for telling them to fuck off.

A lot of those who are going to be disadvantaged by the plans the GOP majority has put forward are the very same people who voted for Trump because they got duped. So they can believe whatever they want about Trump, but all it takes is to see Congress betraying them and they might vote differently in the midterms.

We'll see, I guess. With any luck midterms will get Congress out of crazy-land and the remaining two years of Trump's presidency will go a little more smoothly.

at best if the legislative branches becomes sane again then it will curtail the lunatic's ideas and hopefully he learns something on how to govern a country.

It was recently brought to my attention that xiao some of the members on IDW are still uninformed as to how the US Government works.

So being the efficient handy dandy Captain Obvious I am, I decided to give a nutshell explanation followed by a video presentation of the system we the people, call Checks and Balances:

・ The Executive Branch - They pass laws & direct the Judicial branch.
・ The Legislative Branch - They make laws & star in C-SPAN.
・ The Judicial Branch - They're the cops & judges that carry out the Laws.
・ Press Secretary - Sweats bullets when reporters ask him Questions (sometimes hides in the bushes) fear2.gif

The power is always in the People's hands; and now that we know how the US Government works. This is how a Law gets passed into existence! sweatingbullets.gif

I'm not sure what spurred that post to be generated (well, no, actually, I can guess), but I will point out that 'checks and balances' only really works if the branches are not colluding with one another and/or filled with a bunch of corrupt assholes.

Unfortunately, the present administration is basically exactly that. With luck, 2018 will correct that.

xiao's not as smart as we think... laugh.gif I was re-thinking my stance on politics today when I was defending my view on an Anarchist society while having a picnic with my little cousin in the mall's promenade.

When I finished throwing my mumbo jumbo at a smart little 13 y/o's face... she simply replied: "xiao do you know how Checks & Balances works?" ohmy.gif

It had been approximately 18 years since I took Government in High School so naturally I lied & said YES! Now excuse me while I go to the car & go charge my non-existing flight drone...

The remainder resulted in my post above, and letting go of my tightly clenched belief in Anarchy, in favour of a more idealist concept of democracy. Or at least a Monarchy, cause even an ideal Anarchist country has more holes than a slice of Swiss Cheese ~ nice but not realistically viable! laugh.gif

do any of you remember hearing about the annoying orange show? i know people are calling trump orange as an insult or something to that affect. it just occurred to me to look up put the 2 together and got this vid from YT

YOUTUBE ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-yvVVye0ds )


in other news, he's still in deep shit but its likely more evidence that is needed to give him the boot. im not sure what his effect would be if he does have the cahones to testify and maybe tell the truth about it. its gonna be very adversarial testimony if he does testify. we'll see how this train wreck fares with the aftermath of the Comey testimony.

So heads exploded on the conservative side when Trump cut a deal with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to not only reinstate DACA, but do it without adding his big pointless wall to the budget.

Had myself a giggle.

So this girl got arrested & sent to prison for 2 years in Egypt by el-Sisi for making this music video ..

YOUTUBE ( http://youtube.com/watch?v=S2oAr-nWn-k )

I recently spoke with a pharmacist that came over from Egypt, and he was telling how retarded the government is & why he wanted to leave to a better country. I didn't think much of it, but seeing this girl & her MV director get arrested for making a sexy music video really put some insight on what he mentioned.

I'm afraid I'm confused as to how this is relevant to the discussion, especially enough to justify bring this thread back from the dead.

There's really nothing to talk about with Kavanaugh. He's an all-around piece of shit from every angle, whether we're talking morals, actions, political stances, etc. He's too far right and too corrupt to replace a swing seat.

Swing seats need to stay swing seats on the SCOTUS, period. Too much power on one side or the other is how shit goes downhill for all of us.

unless a few senators will have a change of heart, he's likely to get the seat facepalm.gif. from what i heard, the FBi investigation probably didnt hit all the notes to get to his character.

wait, so a crazy person was rambling on and on about random and various topics while the other person had to listen to it without a choice?? at least the other person knows what it feels like to listen to the mad ravings of a lunatic.


wait a second, which of the 2 there is the lunatic or are they both lunatics?? ermm2.gif

i dont like kanye's music at all but he's just as crazy as the guy sitting behind the desk.

Look at the both of you, refusing to acknowledge any of the truths that Kanye was talking about.

I won't disagree that he was rambling, but god damn. Y'all really enjoy riding the bias the media feeds you. I watched it on CSPAN without any "extra credit" from bent media reactions.

sure, kanye is trying to talk about serious issues his community has faced for many years ie racism and other things that normally doesnt affect the white community. its good that he's raising that question but he's talking to the wrong person and kanye is also crazy in other ways.

i dont think the president isnt very concerned about the black community when its comes down to the crux of it, its only a good topic to talk about to have his voters' support. i find his past business deals rather.......questionable and even his current deals and those of his family to be equally questionable. he wants their support in the elections but thats it, i dont think he cares much about their 24/7 routine experiences. its all about money for him and by that it means his personal wealth, social issues only come into it if they can help him gain more wealth.

Good point… I rescind my previous statement. Kanye, above all the media hoopla, does have a good heart with very valid ideas. online2long.gif user posted image

Trump was talking about how to fix Chicago's extremely high crime rates in the weeks before Kanye even said he wanted to visit the WH. Kanye brought up "stop and frisk" because that was one of Trump's suggestions to the local police force.

Do you not read the news?

yeah, and how do i have a hard time believing he cares about that high crime rate when he likely only sees it as a good talking point to drum up support? i dont believe a single word that comes out of his mouth, especially if he puts the "believe me" somewhere in the sentence. it tragic there's a high crime rate to begin with but trump is not one to seriously tackle it.
